Ethereal Journal 2006

December 13, 2006
Fact. Fantasy. Reality. In all things, there is darkness, and there is light. And even in those, there must be balance.

December 7, 2006
I did an awesome massage session today. It was like nothing I have done in quite a while.

November 20, 2006
One thing I notice about mediums is that they seem to have different goals.

November 16, 2006
I have been reading a book that I am finding very interesting. It’s called “Ask And It Is Given“ and tells how to match vibrations with what you want.

November 14, 2006
I had an interesting time in mediumship class tonight. We did inspired speaking and writing, and it was a very interesting process doing this.

November 10, 2006
I was giving a Reiki session today, and suddenly it turned into an impromptu reading (mediumship reading that is).

October 24, 2006
I had my third mediumship class tonight, and pulled information from a card I pulled out of a deck. My teacher called them ‘inner child’ cards. What I got was interesting, but I just couldn’t put it all together.

October 21, 2006
I taught Reiki 1 today to two students. One of them had had the class previously by another teacher a long time ago. The other was new to it, although she seems to be doing it already. And another thing, she is a very open empath.

October 20, 2006
Alone again... naturally?

October 17, 2006
Ever since taking the Myofascial Release (MFR) classes in Las Vegas, I have been in a new mental and energetic state when doing all massage.

October 14, 2006
You know sometimes that no matter how much you know you’re going to get hit in the face, you really don’t know it until it actually happens.

October 4, 2006
Well, I knew this was going to happen some day. My partner told me that she is leaving.

October 1, 2006
As part of the mediumship workshop, the regular class go to meet with Simone and get a spiritual assessment. She went down the people one at a time spending five minutes with each of us. What she told me was fascinating.

September 30, 2006
Today was an amazing day. I attended a mediumship workshop taught by Simone Key of the Arthur Findlay School in Britain.

September 28, 2006
I met with Simone Key for my first ever mediumship reading. I have had readings before, psychic readings, but not mediumship ones.

September 25, 2006
I had my last MFR class today, and I was surprised when I said goodbye to one of the assistant instructors.

September 23, 2006
I have written a few articles on finding a therapist over the past couple of years. When one is out of town, it can be quite hard to put those suggestions into practice, as I found out in Las Vegas.

September 20, 2006
Today was the last day of Unwinding, and I got to work with one of the assistant instructors.

September 19, 2006 (Part 2)
One of the most interesting parts of the Unwinding class was the group sessions. This is where one person did the unwinding, and up to three others worked with them.

September 19, 2006 (Part 1)
Well today’s class ended with something unusual (as if this stuff has been normal). I was doing Reiki on someone I had been working with in class yesterday as she had wanted to see it. I had gotten part way through when she suddenly started unwinding.

September 18, 2006
I had my first class on Myofascial Unwinding today. Now, I have been through some bizarre classes before, but this takes the cake.

September 17, 2006
Making my travel to Las Vegas was an experience. A good experience surprisingly.

September 11, 2006
I had a dream last night that I thought was totally bizarre. But then I woke up and realized what the date was.

August 23, 2006
I haven’t addressed this yet, but I think I need to. Something in the news last week has put us all in the hands of fear again.

August 20, 2006
Well, we had probably the best week we have ever had last week. It at least made up for the week before.

August 18, 2006
I tried a new method of advertising this month. I put a five-line ad in the city newspaper.

August 17, 2006
Here’s one for you. I have been thinking about food and eating. Read more, you’ll like it.

August 16, 2006
What a difference a week makes. Business has changed.

August 15, 2006
I had a client in here today that made a comment that made me think a half second or so. He said “you do massage spiritually, don’t you?”

August 13, 2006
I just came off a weekend where I taught Reiki both days.

August 11, 2006
I know I have complained about business being slow before, but there's slow, and there's unbelievably slow.

August 9, 2006
Appointments. Cancellations. More appointments. More cancellations.

August 3, 2006
Hello. Caring Palms. This is Brian. **click** Caring Palms, this is Brian. I‘m sorry wrong number. And this is just culminating a bad week.

July 30, 2006
Trends. I am slowly noticing how things change, and how we define things as being ok to do or not. The way we do things is different than it was several years ago.

July 29, 2006
Ok, here’s another one. We had two appointments this morning. At least that is how it started.

July 25, 2006
I had a very interesting evening tonight. I attended my first mediumship class.

July 21, 2006
I’m getting real tired of the bubba BS from people. We had a couple clients come in this afternoon that wanted massages. Then things turned south (and I don’t mean heading toward the equator).

July 1, 2006
I have been attending the Florida State Massage Therapy convention this weekend. While picking up some good marketing information in a couple classes, I did get to assist with the Lomi Lomi class that Alice gave. It was fun.

June 26, 2006
I had an interesting encounter with a snake today, and no, I don’t mean the door to door sales person.

June 25, 2006
Well, it finally happened. I hired a female employee. Actually, today marks two weeks that she has been with me.

June 20, 2006
I taught Reiki 1 today with two students. One of them had taken it just because he has heard me talk about it, the other because I had worked on her a week or so before. (She was the one that had the tendril attached to her siphoning her energy off.)

June 19, 2006
A funny thing happened at the beginning of the Lomi class the other day.

June 18, 2006
I just finished auditing the advanced Lomi Lomi class in Plantation, Florida. I wanted to take this because I felt I needed some guidance on some of the moves. I wasn’t prepared to see that I knew it a lot less than I thought I did.

June 13, 2006
I notice that things tend to go in cycles. Lately, I seem to be doing a lot of Myofascial Release.

June 9, 2006
I had a client come in today (who was a massage therapist) that wanted a full Reiki session and a massage.

June 8, 2006
Last night, I dreamed that I was dying. Tonight, I dreamed that I killed someone.

June 7, 2006
I had a dream that I was dying. It was very strange.

May 28, 2006
I had a massage scheduled for this morning. Unfortunately, I ended up going through a lot of trouble for nothing.

May 24, 2006
I had gotten a call yesterday that ended up involving three massages.

May 18, 2006
The lady that I did the MFR work on last week returned.

May 11, 2006
I have been working with Myofascial Release (MFR) for over a year now. I don’t do it that often, but every now and then someone thinks that this may be what they want, or I may suggest it. I have had some success with it, but nothing consistent to ‘write home about’… at least… until today.

May 5, 2006
I attended my first meeting as part of the Program Advisory Committee for Remington College, a local industrial school. It was at the least educational. What it also was, was very interesting.

May 2, 2006
Ok, it’s rant time again. I got a call this morning that really set me off.

May 1, 2006
Well, a problem with my DSL modem at home has kept me from publishing the entries I have written. So since I couldn’t publish, I kept writing, and you get stuck with one more saying. The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.

April 29, 2006
Today, I got another big sale for a short session. This is cool.

April 25, 2006
I did 35 minutes worth of work today, and that brought in some big money.

April 24, 2006
This is the last one. I promise (well at least for a while.) It's a great satisfaction knowing that for a brief point in time you made a difference.

April 23, 2006
I don’t know why, but I am still amazed by the way people find me.

April 17, 2006
I had a client today that gave me an interesting referral.

April 16, 2006
Ok, so here’s another saying... Happiness is a perfume you can't pour on others without getting a drop on yourself!

April 14, 2006
Here is another proverb to think about... A ship in the harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for.

April 13, 2006
I’ve been running into proverbs and sayings lately that make good sense. Here’s the first one... Never invoke the gods unless you really want them to appear. It annoys them very much. -- G.K. Chesterton

April 11, 2006
For a long time now (probably since I moved to Florida), I have had nothing but complaints about the medical industry and doctors in general. In fact, finding a good doctor is a major trial. Well, that trip took a sharp turn the other day, and lead on an interesting, yet disappointing journey.

April 10, 2006
I have come to realize the power grief has on us. There are a lot of emotions that radiate through us, some happy, some sad. But grief seems to make them all pale in comparison.

April 9, 2006
I participated in my first expo this year. The Forever Young Expo at the University of North Florida (UNF) campus was an all day health products show geared for people who are looking for alternative methods of healing.

April 7, 2006
A friend of mine sent me a link to an article on MSNBC that dealt with a chiropractor in Ohio. He is in jeopardy of losing his license for doing energy healing work.

April 6, 2006
I was talking to a friend online tonight in Connecticut. He was talking about auras and colors and such.

April 5, 2006
I just got back from Ireland. It wasn’t a long trip, maybe five minutes.

March 24, 2006
There are a few more things I wanted to talk about from John Edward. He made some valid points as he tried to teach some interesting information to the people in the audience.

March 23, 2006
Well, I had a very interesting evening. I just got back from seeing John Edward. And to answer your question before you ask it, no, I didn’t connect with someone on the other side. And although that may be a small disappointment, I do understand that I didn’t have the need, while others did.

March 21, 2006
Well, now that I will be seeing John Edward in a couple of days, I find it interesting that I have had a couple of visitations in my dreams.

March 19, 2006
I did a couples massage today, and it was very, very neat.

March 14, 2006
We are a touch starved society. Somewhere along the line, society became afraid to touch. Yes, it’s rant time again.

March 13, 2006
We talk about Reiki, Therapeutic Touch, and many other healing modalities. One thing that they all have in common is that modern day science (modern medicine) doesn’t believe in them. And that mostly stems from the inability to measure them.

March 12, 2006
Here is something that came to me that seems to make a lot of sense... Your touch is your introduction. Your energies are your intent, and define who you are.

March 11, 2006
I taught Reiki 1 today. This was a class that seemed destined to happen no matter how many times it should have been cancelled.

March 8, 2006
I had a man come in today while I was talking to a student from one of the local colleges. He wanted massage.

March 7, 2006
With the death of our Siberian Husky, Cheetah, last February, we adopted another Husky in May. This dog had been very badly abused, and she was reacting very poorly to our attempts at affection. Now, this may sound like a dog story, and for a part it is, but it is also a people story with something to think about.

March 6, 2006
Well, this is going to be something new. I purchased tickets to a performance at the Florida Theater on March 23rd. Now, you might be wondering what band or musical performer I’m going to see. Well, performer would be correct, but musical would not. The tickets are to see John Edward.

March 1, 2006
Ok, somewhere there has to be a subliminal message to things of late. I’m starting to think that maybe it is Breast Cancer Awareness month… or should be.

February 28, 2006
I did an interesting massage session today. I had a lady that had had breast cancer, and had a double mastectomy. Since she couldn’t lay on her stomach, I did a regular massage (with oils) in a massage chair.

February 21, 2006
I worked on (I guess you would call her) a breast cancer survivor today.

February 18, 2006
Terry Rogers was in town today to give a talk about Reiki and healthcare. What he had to say was quite interesting.

February 17, 2006
I just completed my second day at an AIDs summit. I was there to talk about Reiki from my table and in a presentation.

February 11, 2006
I taught Reiki 1 to one person today. Although the class size was small, it was a good class.

February 6, 2006
I worked on two older ladies today. After working on the first, and then talking to the second, I can relay a funny incident that happened that I was unaware of.

February 3, 2006
I had a lady walk in the shop today asking about massage. She lives in Kansas and will be moving to this area soon.

January 31, 2006
On my way in this morning, I had stopped off at Emily’s shop up the street to drop off a flyer. While I was there talking with Cynthia, a prospective client came in and asked some questions. Her response to the answers was very strange.

January 26, 2006
Well, I’ve created a new product, Massage Class for Couples. That’s right, I’m teaching massage now, but not for students looking to be massage therapists. I’m teaching the general public.

January 25, 2006
I did Reiki today on a 90 year old lady.

January 24, 2006
Well, this has been a month. Today was my first day back at work after being out sick a week.

January 14, 2006
I taught Reiki 1 today. I had two students, but it was a good combination.

January 12, 2006
I did something today I should have done a long time ago. I joined a gym. Now that in itself was not so mentionable or strange. The person I had to deal with was another matter, and it was very scary.

January 5, 2006
All right, it’s only five days into the new year, and already time for the first rant. I ask you, why do people have to be so ignorant?

January 4, 2006
Numbers, numbers, numbers. Well it is the end of the year, so I am entitled to look at numbers again.

January 3, 2006
Back in August of last year, certain learning energies were made available to us. This will continue until August of this year. Time is running out.

January 2, 2006
Control. We are, in our own ways, control freaks. We want to feel in control of ourselves and our surroundings, but all too often we don’t have control at all. Maybe it’s time to let go.

January 1, 2006
Well, here it is, the New Year. What will it be filled with? What will we let it be filled with?
