Merry Meet and Greetings Family and Friends!
I have been terribly remiss in my writing, this I know. Life has taken some strange and unexpected turns, some absolutely wonderful and others, well..not so much.
At Midsummer, I was certified as a Reiki Master/Teacher. One of the last things that our Reiki Master warned us about was the year long self healing process that accompanies the Reiki Master attunement and the possibility of a "falling away" of those things that had, up until this time, taken precedent in our lives. She spoke of things such as changing careers, moving, ending relationships, etc. Since my first degree Wiccan initiation and subsequent Reiki attunements, I can definitely attest to this fact. How profound this was to be, however, has been a bit disconcerting.
I have felt the need to distance myself from those things that aren't serving a higher purpose either spiritually or magickally. I feel a greater pull towards learning and I have allowed my intuition or perhaps, my spirit guides, to lead me toward those things that I feel most connected. I'm uncertain where this is going, but it all feels right. At the end of September, I am planning to participate in a intensive workshop in Hoodoo, which I gotta tell ya, I'm completely psyched about!
Recently, I have been doing a lot of distant healing which I am not at all happy about. Well, I'm happy to be able to send healing energy, but not at all thrilled that it's necessary. I have been blessed by those of you that I call friends who have not only supported my efforts with your own work, but have sent healing energy to me as well. Thanks guys! I gotta tell ya, it has really helped!
One of my most significant and difficult lessons thus far has been that distance sometimes is necessary. At times I will take things into myself and feel as if the problems of the World are in my hands. Ok, that's an exaggeration, but still. To that end, I've learned that distance, in general, can be a good thing. It gives one a chance to ground and center, be overall more productive and find balance when things are off kilter.
I guess what I'm trying to say is that, I have no idea what this year's healing will bring, but...
Just for today, I will not worry
Just for today, I will not be angry
Just for today, I will be thankful for my many blessings
Just for today, I will do my work honestly
Just for today, I will treat all living things with kindness ~ Dr. Mikao Usui
