Ethereal Journal 2007

I have a friend that is very much into energy (like I’m not? ) and the coming earth changes. He was giving me a warning.

December 29, 2007
Did you ever feel like things just suddenly took a sharp left? Life was going great and then the bottom fell out? Well, that’s how I feel now.

December 26, 2007
Each year we hear the same thing... “It’s a new year, time to turn over a new leaf.” Maybe yes, maybe no. What it is time to do is make commitments. Now I’m not talking resolutions here, as resolutions have become the standard joke. We expect them to be broken, therefore they are temporary. What we need to do is make commitments, and one of the places to make those commitments is in our own healthcare.

December 20, 2007
Teaching at nights at a local corporate college has really opened my eyes to the state of education in this country. I’m really scared when I see what is coming into my classes.

December 13, 2007
One of my students had a migraine during class. It was Reiki to the rescue again.

December 12, 2007
I heard from my client whose grandfather popped in the other day. He was a bit confused at how this could happen and had questions.

December 10, 2007
I would think that I’d be used to spirits popping in, and the means they use to get my attention, but I guess I’m really not. Here’s one that did something a bit unusual.

December 5, 2007
Now I think I’m getting a bit cocky. Or maybe not. I did two massages today to regular clients. Both of them were freeform.

November 21, 2007
Tonight was the next to the last class for this current group of students. Last night I had shown them a video on Esalen massage, and the movements form that were so totally different to what they were doing, that it just blew them away. Tonight they wanted to see some moves, so I chose a ‘victim’ and did a massage… from nothing.

November 8, 2007
Having a large class has a lot more problems than having a small class. Trying to get everyone taught on the massage routine when some are out on various nights is especially hard. Trying to keep everyone up to date with book work is easier. Trying to deal with 10 different personalities is fun, but here’s a new one… having a student faint in the middle of class.

November 5, 2007
As a skeptic (and yes, I really am one), I keep having doubts about doing energy work distantly and if it really has effect. At the same time, I keep on sending. And every now and then I get confirmation that something is happening.

October 30, 2007
Class has been interesting this mod. I have 11 students (yes, that is more than the night class has ever had), and many of them have contraindications (problems that can be made worse by massage. In fact, while one of my students was being worked on, her problem flared up and she was in great pain, so much so that to lightly touch the area hurt.

October 17, 2007
Let’s see... Massage sessions: $60 per hour, Reiki energy and mediumship readings at no additional charge.

October 13, 2007
Did you ever hear of the Healing Zone? Well, I was there last night. It’s not quite like the Twilight Zone, and one doesn’t see visions of Rod Serling, but it is a unique place where magic happens.

October 12, 2007
After having a really nice bodywork trade today (yes, I got worked on), I had a walk-in for a Reiki session.

October 1, 2007
Last week, I did Reiki on a client that kept coming up with new problems as I treated her. This week I started with MFR, and the same thing ensued.

September 27, 2007
I had a client in today for a Reiki session. That’s where things started, but they definitely took a sharp left.

September 25, 2007
I finally had a night off and got to go to Mediumship class tonight. We each brought a picture of someone that has passed over. Those went into envelopes and then randomly paired up. From those we did readings without opening the envelopes.

September 15, 2007
I did a Reiki session today on one of my former students from several years ago. This was the first time I had seen her in at least two years.

September 10, 2007
Someone once said that we should act locally, but think globally. The idea behind that us wonderful, but not always possible. At the same time, doesn’t everything we do reflect outward?

September 9, 2007
I’ve been lost in proverbs again. I’ve been looking at my business and trying to figure out what to do next to get customers in.

September 7, 2007
A friend called this morning whom I had not heard from in a very long time. In fact, it was the friend that originally introduced me to Reiki. She had a healing request.

August 29, 2007
My mediumship teacher stopped by to get a healing session and teach a class. Today’s class dealt with doing a reading through psychometry, which uses the vibrations off an object to connect with the person being read. Sometimes this can be simply a psychic reading, but can connect through to spirit and become mediumship. Today’s session became mediumship, and I got slammed.

August 19, 2007
I was at the bank today, using the ATM when a car pulled up with their stereo blasting. One person got out while the other stayed in the car with this boom-boom-boom vibrating the parking lot. Everyone that came past me into the bank looked over there and commented about the people in the car. I guess my question is... why do people feel they have the right to be rude?

August 18, 2007
My class was receiving massages from one of the advanced classes tonight. This was part of a trade that the other teacher and I had arranged. There was one student sitting out because she could barely walk.

August 10, 2007
It started out to be a strange class tonight, teaching-wise that is. One of the teachers was supposed to be out. The other called in sick. That left me to teach a combination of three classes.

July 16, 2007
I gave a talk and demonstration this morning at FMU on Reiki. Everything was fine for the most part, then things just suddenly went south.

June 30, 2007
I think I have a new way of taking tests... ask spirit for the answers.

June 18, 2007
Tonight, I talked on Reiki to a combined class at Florida Metropolitan University.

June 13, 2007
Tonight, because my student did not show up, I ended up sitting in on the Chinese medicine class where they were showing a video on Reiki. Oh my gosh! What a piece of Felgercarb! But what it lead to was absolutely spectacular.

June 12, 2007
All right. Here’s a new one. I just lost a session because I’m not a Christian female.

June 11, 2007
What’s the buzz? Well, bees. What about bees? Do you know that they are dying?

June 5, 2007
Ok, I have to admit it. A good way to get rid of a migraine seems to be to get Reiki.

June 4, 2007
Stress!  These long days are really getting to me.

June 3, 2007
I find it interesting that the universe gives us what we need.

June 2, 2007
This has been a long time coming, but I taught my first Couples Massage class today for money.

June 1, 2007
As our society changes and advances, I sometimes question if what we truly have is advancement or not.

May 31, 2007
After going through yesterday’s exercise, we had a little time left, so Marilyn asked if I wanted to try the exercise she was planning for last night’s advanced class. She told me that she was going to have the students write down a name, and have someone else come up with words for each letter and then give a reading. I initially had my doubts if I could do that, which I figured meant that I needed to.

May 30, 2007
Marilyn, my mediumship teacher was in today. Since I can’t make the monthly classes because I am teaching in the evenings, she is willing to give me personal training in exchange for Reiki sessions.

May 25, 2007
Well, I just finished my first full mod (module) at school. I hope it was what was needed.

May 20, 2007
I’ve seen where doctors are on call for emergencies. How about energy workers?

May 17, 2007
I was starting class tonight, and looked at my students. One seemed to be having a problem, so I asked what was wrong.

May 10, 2007
I was asked by someone to send white light to a particular situation. Looking back, I find it interesting that they asked me to send it to the situation, and not to specific people. But as it turned out, that was the correct focus.

April 15, 2007
Here’s a scary one. While I have had my studio open, and even before, I have been learning what it takes to run a business. Well, looking at the profit and loss report for this year, go t me thinking.

April 14, 2007
Well, I got the news. It looks like I’m going to be a teacher.

April 13, 2007
Hand jobs! Get your fresh hot hand jobs to go! You wouldn’t believe this phone call.

April 12, 2007
I talk about energy a lot, how energy can affect someone, do various things, even affect how people act. How about considering energy as a permeating force driving a group of people? Well, tonight I saw it first hand, and was part of it.

April 10, 2007
I know things tend to go in cycles, but this is actually silly, yet not.

April 9, 2007
Energies of the universe flow in many directions. It’s like currents and eddies that sometimes take you where you should be. That may be happening in my case.

April 5, 2007
I had a client today that was particularly interesting in how she reacted to energies.

April 1, 2007
Strangely enough, it was a slow month last month, yet the best month on record.

March 18, 2007
I was working on my client yesterday when she told me something. She told me “You’re a very gifted healer.”  This got me to thinking of something a friend and I had been talking about the other day... what is the difference between a massage therapist and a healer?

March 17, 2007
Well, I had an awesome week last week. It just would have been nice to bring in some money.

March 14, 2007
We had an interesting mediumship class last night. We did readings with paint chips.

March 13, 2007
With all I said yesterday, I am finding it hard to be positive.

March 12, 2007
Ok, let’s talk energies. What can you do with them, and what can they do for you? What prompted these questions is a video I watched (which is from a book) that everyone seems to be putting down. It’s called The Secret.

March 10, 2007
I had a really good Reiki 1 class today. I had five students which is more than I have taught before, and that created a problem or two.

February 28, 2007
Stuff happens (of course it’s usually spelled differently). We know that. But it seems to come in waves making us live crisis to crisis.

February 25, 2007
I did a massage session today that by the time I was done, had opened the eyes of my client to insight that she had not thought possible.

February 10, 2007
I taught Reiki 1 today. It was an interesting group, and one of the comments was very interesting.

January 26, 2007
We’ve all at some time heard someone say “Please God, give me strength.” Someone made a comment about this the other day that I found quite interesting.

January 25, 2007
Well, I just returned from four days of training in Temple Lomi Lomi. It was a very rewarding experience, and most of the moves I learned are completely integrateable into what I do now.

January 20, 2007
I was doing Myofascial Release (MFR) work on a client today when in the course of the session, he made a pretty insightful statement. He said that ignorance leads to pain and suffering.

January 18, 2007
I had an unusual situation today that started out as a massage and ended up into an unwinding.

January 10, 2007
Yesterday, I talked about religions, and how one of the major religions on the planet did some ‘major marketing’ to promote itself as the number one faith on the planet. But I do have some questions. Why are people so passionate about their faiths that they want to force others to follow what they do? Why do some people believe so much in what they are told by their religious leaders that they will do evil or plain old stupid things because they are told to do so? Why is it that religions teach tolerance, but that doesn’t seem to be anything practiced by their people? Just a few queries that I will take a bit more in depth as you read on.

January 9, 2007
Politics and religion, two things that tend to get people very angry. Why is that? Well, I tend to stay away from politics as much as I can in this journal because there are way too many opinions, mine included. But what also incites people is talk of religion, especially when it differs with someone’s beliefs. Because of this, I’m not going to talk about religion here, right? Not!

January 8, 2007
Inventions are amazing things. You might look at something and wonder where people come up with the ideas that they do. Well, I have a theory based on an invention that I had an idea for many years before it actually was invented.
