Don't Let Fear Run Your Mind

I would like to give you an update on House Bill 16-1320. The fear that I have seen going around the metaphysical community is that soon Reiki practitioners and others who practice various alternative healing modalities will need to be licensed by the state. Therefore I attended the DORA meeting last Monday to receive the information right from the source.

I am happy to tell you that from what I perceived, there is no need for concern. DORA assured us that they have no intention of creating a need for any more licensures than are already in place. The bill is to allow DORA to partner with law enforcement to stop the sex and human trafficking that has become a major problem in the Denver area. Reiki and other healing modalities are listed as exempt in the bill.

The concern of some in the alternative healing community is that these exemptions can be removed by DORA if there are too many complaints and arrests connected with one modality. Some of the attendees are asking for the wording to be adjusted so the individual, not the modality, becomes exempt.

I feel Reiki will not be one of the healing modalities that could be affected by these changes in the future. As I mentioned in my last blog, do not allow fear to run in your mind and affect your outside world. What you resist persists. Stay in your heart and know you create your own reality and that is what will bring peace into your being.

In love and admiration,

You Are a Beacon of Light

It has been brought to my attention that there is new legislation in Colorado, House Bill 16-1320, that will dictate how Reiki can be administered. The bill that has been passed by both Houses and is now on the desk of Governor John Hickenlooper, will require everyone offering any type of alternative holistic care to have a massage license.

Do not allow this to elicit fear. Life is about change. If this change occurs, then we will change with it. It will not stop how we help others in need. Our practice is one of love and light. Nothing can change that. Stay in your heart; write to Governor Hickenlooper and let him know how you feel about this bill, and then release it out into the Universe.

The power of love is stronger than any rule that a government agency can create. You are that essence of love and you are trained in how to transfer it to others. Focus on that and fear will subside.

In the Light,
Marnie

Your Heart is Already Protected

For the last 10 days I have been in a retreat, of sorts, having contracted a bacterial infection that put me out of commission. I have spent most of the day sleeping, reading and, when I had enough energy (that took about a week), in meditation.  It is so interesting to see, when the body cannot function in its usual mode, what happens to the psyche.

For the most part I have been in silence, not speaking and also no chatter in my head. As my energy revived I found meditation to be my calming companion. One thing that has arisen is the care of my heart because the dis-ease of my body was in my chest. I have felt my heart physically, emotionally, and spiritually. One part of the heart I have ignored is the pericardium so I have spent sometime contemplating this organ and the meridian line to it from the middle finger up the arm and into the chest.

The mind works best when it has an image to focus upon. The pericardium wraps itself around the heart and secures it. It is its protection. Over the years there have been many ways I have protected my heart but none of those ways elicit the physical embrace of the pericardium. I have heard the term but never really understood its function. Now I not only can see it, I can feel it.

My suggestion for this week is to research this organ of utmost importance. This will give your mind an image to visualize as you open your heart knowing that it is already protected and wrapped in love on the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual level.

Embracing your heart,

The Tapestry of Life is Filled with Holes

I must say, I love to observe the tapestry of life. How the scenarios create colors, rhythms, and can make knots or holes when a tiff appears. Once you take a moment to step back, the colors and the flow of this life tapestry is perfect in its imperfection.

I was flying home from California last Sunday and sat next to an adorable 7-month-old baby. His mother suggested I sit somewhere else so that his crying would not disturb me, but I chose to stay at my window seat because I love to look out the window, even at night. What was surprising was who disturbed me on this trip. His infrequent tears really didn’t bother me, but what did bother me was the woman sitting behind me who talked loudly and never stopped. If there was a lull in the conversation, she would fill in the gap by asking questions of her seat mates. The conversation went on and on and I wondered if she would ever stop. Indeed, for 2 1/2 hours, she did not. I definitely had a judgment of her which was creating a hole in my tapestry of life.

I did notice that her questions probed into what interested these young girls. She shared her wisdom of 30+ years and shared parts of herself as well. She did appear to really be interested in who they were. Towards the end of the flight, she mentioned her husband with great admiration and called him a rock star. My knot in the tapestry was my doubt that there was a man who could listen to this incessant chatter.

Glad to be off the plane at luggage, I saw her with her rock star husband. He was on the plane as well, just in a different row. He gently talked to her, kissed her, and I could sense that he adored her as much as she did him. He did not mind her chatter because he saw her good qualities and how she really cared for others.

This completely changed my view of this woman. Not everyone who is loved and is loving needs to fit into my mold. I drove home feeling content that even from afar I had met such kind and caring people. They come in many different packages and I can see I must keep my eyes open without filters to find them.

Lovingly,

Why Meditate?

A question you may ask yourself is why bother with meditations? Besides all the benefits, which I will list later, let’s just look at how our body works. We cannot push our bodies day and night. At some point your body will call to you for rest. This reprieve is required every single day. If you skip a day of sleep, it will be difficult to function and perform everyday tasks. Your brain also requires a respite.

Our psyche does not require as long of a break as our bodies, but it does need at least 20 minutes once a day to recharge. During this 20-minute pause, the brain reorganizes it thoughts, stressors and ideas. This allows for new images to form and inner guidance to be activated by increased intuition. Stilling the body is the first step towards calming the mind. Sometimes all it takes is for one to sit down and look out the window into nature. An extensive, exact meditation process is not always necessary, though a guided practice can help keep one on track.

Give yourself the gift of silence, once a day, for 20 minutes or however long time permits. You may find you will:
  •             Sleep better
  •             Have increased energy
  •             Calm a worried mind
  •             Let go of stress
  •             Feel physically stronger
  •             Become more aware of your surroundings
  •             Increase your intuition
  •             Love yourself
The list goes on. Try meditation and list the differences you find in your life.

Need guidance to meditate? Here's a link to some MP3s that will help you.

Blessings,

This Spring, Care for the Earth, Naturally

In the past I have talked about how to take care of your body, but now I will address how to take care of the body of the earth. When I get out into nature it feeds my soul and rejuvenates by body, therefore yard work is not a chore. Today I will give you information that will get you connected to and caring for the largest plant in your yard, your lawn. We are all one. We are connected to the animals, the plants and the land, so it is natural to give as much care to the earth as we give to ourselves.

It is spring in Colorado and it is awakening my senses. Our grass is beginning to turn green but in the north sections of my yard where the snow did not melt quickly, the lawn is looking pretty brown. Fertilizer will green it up but the chemicals do not support the environment. I will give you an easy recipe for a natural tonic for your lawn.

All you need is:
  • One full can of regular pop (any kind-no diet soda)
  • One full can of beer (no light beer) 12oz
  • 1/2 cup of liquid dishwashing soap (do NOT use anti-bacterial dishwashing liquid)
  • 1/2 cup of household ammonia
  • 1/2 cup of mouthwash (any brand)
Directions:
  • Pour into 10-gallon hose-end sprayer (any hose sprayer will do)
  • Spray on lawn till it runs off
  • In high heat, apply every three weeks
So does it work? We will see. Come to the next Reiki share on May 11, 6:45 and see how my lawn has responded to the tonic. Naturally I will be directing a little Reiki on it as well.

Want to know how and why the tonic works? Here is the link: http://origin.wusa9.com/weather/story.aspx?storyid=40316

Happy spring!

Healing Energy Codes

If you are reading this blog, you no doubt know how to move energies and activate healing for yourself and others. But today I am going to give you yet one more tool to place in your energy tool box. These are healing codes that were given to me, and I have mentioned them in my classes. At last I am passing them on.

There are those who know how to activate energy through numbers. Some of you may have met Wendy Knobloch at the psychic fairs that I have had here at my home. She is a numerologist and has passed along these healing codes to me from the source where she received them. They are free, and she encourages others to distribute them out into the world. If you find them useful, I suggest you do the same.

The end of the document references who brought in these codes. All I can tell you is that they work. I can’t say why as it is more than mere intention, but they do work and within minutes in many cases. I have used them and found they release in minutes the discomfort of nausea, bloating, itching, and the effects of allergies, to name a few. To access this easy-to-navigate healing tool, click here.

I hope these codes will ease any discomfort you may encounter for yourself and others.

In the Light,
Marnie
