THE NEW WORLD IS HERE

 

THE NEW WORLD IS HERE

Well, here we are !!!!!!!! And isn’t this FUN !!! Yes, this is the very BEST !!!!! I’m listening to Johnny Mathis on YouTube & allowing every memory to surface in my consciousness.

How SUBLIME !!!!!!!!!

I AM remembering David Steven Walker, who moved to San Francisco with Johnny Tidwell following college. He returned to Mississippi years later without Johnny, but with AIDS. He moved back in with his mother, Bonnie Walker, unrecognizable, old, diseased, dying. He didn’t want anyone to see him the way he was in the end. So I didn’t even get to tell him good-bye.

I AM also remembering my childhood & the abusiveness of sexual battering, of being shamed about being naturally, about the guilt that was thrust upon me & about being sexually backwards for many, many, many years. Needlessly & for far too long, I was never open to deeply, truly & without inhibition 

ENJOYING SEX & MY OWN WONDERFUL SEXUALITY !!!!!!!!

Our bodies are not to be hidden, denied and held back, but revered, treasured, cherished & thoroughly ENJOYED !!!!!!!! Our bodies & all their functions are DIVINE, GLORIOUS, WONDERFUL. MADE IN THE IMAGE OF GOD !!!!!!!!! How can that ever possibly be wrong? Sex isn’t something to be ashamed of or guilty about; SEX IS DIVINE, MAJESTIC, BEAUTIFUL, PERFECT & VERY, VERY PURE !!!!!!!!

Rather than regretting the wasted years, I much prefer to ENJOY MY NOW MOMENTS EACH & EVERY DAY !!!!!!!! I may not get those years back, but I CAN LIVE NOW !!! AND I CAN MAKE THE NOW AS PLEASURABLE, DELIGHTFUL & ENJOYABLE AS POSSIBLE, TO THE MAX !!

I JOYOUSLY INVITE ALL OF YOU WHO READ THIS TO DO THE SAME, TO MAKE EACH DAY THE MOST ENJOYABLE, MOST DELIGHTFUL, MOST PLEASURABLE DAY POSSIBLE TO THE MAX !!!!

A Mother Here

"In Her Image" - Jennifer Smith. Third Place. This work is mixed media (oil and floral decoupage) on canvas paper. The impulse behind the work came from my desire to create an image of the Prime Female as a being representative of the human race as a whole. I would love all women who view this image to feel as though they are made perfectly; in image of a Heavenly Mother who embraces and embodies all possibilities of skin/eye/hair color facial features etc.

Mother Goose

How deeply I love you, my Mother!!!

How I wish you had loved me.

You couldn’t.

You couldn’t do it!!!

You were just a shell,

A shell left over from rape,

From an unwanted pregnancy,

A baby boy you never saw, never held, never wanted.

I’m told you were abused as well.

By your father.

That is impossible for me to imagine.

It must have been someone else.

Who hurt you?

Who formed the monster you became with me?

How do you possibly justify what you did to me?

By telling the world I was “crazy”

So no one would listen if I told.

I never told.

What would be the point?

You took away or killed everything I ever loved.

You definitely tried.

You wanted me to see you

as having total power over me.

You wanted me to believe that you were

too powerful to ever be questioned.

What I know I KNOW is

You were never powerful at all,

 You were pitiful.

With all your manipulations.

All your attempts to control.

All your lies.

You are a liar!!!

Just a liar.

Your teeth caved in.

Eaten away, turned upon themselves.

Dead, dead, dead like you!!!

I wish this had a pretty ending.

But…it is what it is.

There are times when we have to be

thankful for what is!!!

I AM grateful for the way things really were!!!

You made me stronger than

I ever could have possibly imagined!!!

Without intending to do it,

You made me exactly what I AM TODAY!!!

STRONG, HEALTHY, INVINCIBLE,

UNBREAKABLE, UNDISPUTED, INDISPUTABLE,

IMMACULATE, WEATHER-PROOF.

I AM SOMEONE WHO CANNOT

POSSIBLY BE BEATEN!!!

I AM UNBEATABLE!!!

UNBEATABLE!!!

UNBEATABLE!!!

UN BEATEN!!!

UN BEATEN!!!

UN BEATEN!!!

I AM ALIVE!!!

I AM ALIVE!!!

I AM ALIVE!!!

I REMAIN ALIVE FOREVER!!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you,

thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

The Gift of Reiki

Big Sur CA

This must be Heaven!

Applied knowledge, applying the principles, sharing and teaching what we have learned, settling in, and being comfortable in our own skins are all included in the experience of Reiki.

During and following attunement, there is such an onrush of new and recalled info coming in that we can be hard pressed to do anything except receive.  Later, as we begin to actively give, it often behooves us to take several looks at what and whom surrounds us.  We attract precisely those experiences, individuals, and items that work us through our own issues.

Some of you are thinking, “But I don’t have any issues.”  If you are living in nirvana with never so much as a bobble, perhaps this is true.  But if you still inhabit the physical plane and you ever experience even the slightest ripple, here’s a news flash for you:  Our primary work is always on ourselves.

The woman who attuned me to Reiki taught that when we attain wellness, we discover that our focus is no longer on the sick and afflicted.  We work on the sick only when we have something within us that requires healing.

In the same vein, perhaps we teach only when we have something to learn.  Those who teach learn more than their students.  Through the years, I’ve considered this frequently.

Why Reiki?  What are the limitations of Reiki and consciousness?  Are there any limits outside our own egos?

Reiki changes consciousness.

Reiki perfects consciousness.

Reiki attuned me to the incredible richness of breath, the flow of life-giving molecules, the sensual impact of flowers and sky, the kiss of wind, the beauty of water on skin, the nourishment of sunlight.

Reiki imparts the fullness of the joy of living.  With Reiki comes the awareness that I AM truly okay.  There is no requirement to earn the right to enjoy my life or the right to be here.  It is perfect to be who and what I AM without apology or reservation.

I have become my inner child.  I breathe as a child, I see as a child, live as a child, think as a child, speak as a child, and relate as a child.  My best friends are children.

Reiki has also made me aware of the perfection of others.  Anyone can find fault.  Are we not taught to do so?  Finding perfection is an ability worth cultivating.  Following a lifetime of brainwashing, it requires a bit of practice.

For me, these are the best, finest gifts of Reiki.  Not acclaim, not accolades, not even acknowledgement.  Nor fame, financial gain, publicity and money.

Reiki has made me aware of my own humanity.  Reiki has taught me that humility and humiliation are not the same thing.  Reiki has made me functional.

Each one who embraces Reiki has a unique experience that is perfect for his own growth.  Just as infants do not all walk or talk at the same age, we each experience Reiki at our own pace and capacity.  Reiki meets us where we are and takes us farther than we have ever imagined, in the ways that are perfect for us.

Until next post, namaste!

One Reiki Family

Under the sky, under the heaven, there is but one family.

Bruce Lee

When introduced to Reiki way back when, I thought everybody practiced Reiki the same way.  It wasn’t until a bit later that we were told about The Reiki Alliance.  Looking back, we in the Light Therapy tradition were given very little information about other traditions and ways of practicing Reiki.  Bits and pieces floated to my awareness occasionally.  These were filed away for future reference, just in case.  But for the most part, I stuck with what I’d been taught and had little idea what had been handed down to practitioners of Reiki traditions other than my own.

Some years later, I met a woman whose lineage did not include Takata.  Our discussions provided me additional information regarding Reiki and its origins, and about how Reiki has evolved since its inception.  My practice of Reiki remained the same.  While I had opened to the fact that Reiki practices are somewhat like DNA and fingerprints, it didn’t occur to me that anyone was “wrong” or egotistical or “not real Reiki”.

When I recently began following a Reiki group on LinkedIn, I experienced mild surprise with one discussion in particular.  The question presented has to do with how many attunements are correctly given in the Usui system.  My thought, of course, was that I didn’t comprehend why this would ever be an issue.  What was the problem?

However, the discussion became quite lively, and I noticed what I perceived as likely being bias and/or competition involving the various traditions represented by those in the group.  At first this bothered me.  Then, light bulb!!!!!

Since I was the one perceiving issues within the group, I must be the one with the issues!  It was my job to work on that.  So, as always, I proceeded to do exactly that.

My greatest joy would be to know that we are all one Reiki family and that we function and support one another as equals although our individual practices do vary.  In some traditions, hand positions are standardized and symbol reception/use is treated with distrust or suspicion.  In other traditions, symbol reception is commonplace, being the norm rather than the rarity, and there is fluidity/flow during treatment and attunement, with much reliance upon intuitive data and the assistance of guides.  Yet, we are all undeniably attuned in the Usui system.

There was a time of bickering and oneupmanship in the world wide Reiki community, early on.  We are not children anymore, and the world we all inhabit is in dire need of the most positive influences all of us can provide.  We have a responsibility, collectively as well as individually, as one Reiki family as well as proud members of the traditions we came up in.  We should be proud of our Reiki roots.  At the same time, we have an obligation to educate the medical community and the public about the benefits of Reiki.  Undeniably, this includes the necessity of providing all appropriate education to Reiki practitioners and teachers.

I AM profoundly grateful to better understand why there was once an effort to standardize Reiki.  However, in my own observations, the highest standards invariably arise within the individual practitioner rather than being arbitrarily set by a person or group assuming ownership/control of Reiki.  While it pains me immeasurably to witness the countless offers of free attunements, cheap attunements, and self-attunements being advertised to unsuspecting consumers who desire to learn about Reiki but are reluctant to pay the prices normally charged by reputable teaching masters, what bothers me most is the disillusion that results when students choose less-than-the-best for themselves.  Often these students become disillusioned with Reiki itself, rather than with the teacher of their own choosing.

As practitioners and teaching masters, how do we repair and reverse this?  Obviously, we can set our own standards at a very high level, we can honor the Reiki that flows through us, and we can be in every way one Reiki family.  We can begin consciously seeking out our similarities as well as celebrating the entire spectrum of Reiki traditions and forms.  We can honor and respect one another as professional equals.  We can fearlessly, lovingly share the truth and essence of who we are as Reiki practitioners.

WE CAN BE THE LOVE THAT WE ALL ARE.

Good Morning!

I love the early morning quiet before everyone else wakes up! This has been my lifelong habit, but since my own children were infants and I had to plan “me time” for the first time ever, it’s been a godsend. Now I have an accumulation of memories from many mornings through the years.

Clean, cool, crisp beauty greets me today. Lush, vivid greens embrace my senses, especially welcome right now. It’s the 38th day of the oil spill in the gulf. I’m profoundly grateful for the beauty of this moment. Inhaling deeply, I think of everyone in that area; they are breathing toxic fumes. So are the innocent animals. Many have worked constantly, almost incessantly, resting very little, an en masse effort to salvage the Gulf Coast we have always loved. The disappointment and disillusion I suffered following Katrina have relented at last as I see the tireless, heroic determination of many to somehow right the situation.

Catastrophes, disasters, and emergencies do indeed bring out the best in human beings, or the worst. My personal gratitude meter is off the charts right now seeing so many united to accomplish this common goal.

No news yet as to the effectiveness of BP’s latest procedure. Wait and see. Guess we’ll all be doing continual workings until this is resolved.

Love you all! Namaste.
