Ethereal Journal 2009

Someone told me something that makes sense yesterday... If we want change, we have to make it.

December 1, 2009
I’ve been doing more really deep, deep tissue massage lately, at least in the last several sessions. It seems there are a lot of people willing to pay to have the crap beat out of them.

November 30, 2009
OK, this one takes the cake. Had a client walk in asking for a massage, but it was how he asked that made me want to write this.

November 24, 2009
December 21st, 2012 to be specific. Will the world end? Will it begin again? Does anyone care?

November 21, 2009
I'm sure you've heard the saying "All roads lead to Rome". I am starting to think if not all roads, many roads to Reiki seem to lead to me.

November 20, 2009
What is it with computerized social networking? Why do we need to let everyone know what we are doing every minute? Why would anyone care? Yes, I’m ranting again.

November 19, 2009
I did another unwinding today that went in another direction.

November 18, 2009
We had an amazing mediumship class today. Although we all got messages from spirit, we could not define who that spirit(s) was, and the message we got was for all of us.

November 17, 2009
With all the different things I have been doing lately, I have noticed that I am letting spirit in more.

November 16, 2009
I have done a few unwindings lately, including the one today. All in all, they have been interesting, but as people do more, it is easier and they go further.

November 14, 2009
Now I have heard a lot of stories about how people came to find me... “I saw your website, and I just knew you were the right one. ”  “I saw your name and something said yes.” “I was driving by and saw the sign and just knew this was the place.” “Something happened and I knew it was a sign.” But the one today has to be the best yet.

November 13, 2009
One of my friends and clients posted a comment on Facebook. She said, “If your road to success has been a difficult one, you aren't living your truth. ” The comments after it were very interesting.

November 4, 2009
I was working on someone that I do trades with today, and they made an interesting statement. They told me that I should become (or was it call myself) a life coach.

September 30, 2009
I have been dreaming again. This one was kind of strange (like they all aren’t?). Maybe I should not have watched that commercial for the movie 2012.

September 19, 2009
This incident yesterday reminded me of a client that had come in a month or so ago.

September 18, 2009
I had a new client in today for MFR to see if they could help her migraines. It was a short session, and I will never see her again.

September 4, 2009
With the classes over, and all the things that went into getting them done, I have been looking over some of the comments, and some are quite interesting.

September 3, 2009
Last month was a crazy month, and I am actually looking forward to a 3-day weekend off. I am very tired from teaching the many classes I have, and I do need a break.

September 2, 2009
I was watching a commercial for Ghost Whisperer which is going to be playing on the SyFy channel shortly, and one of the things they said in the commercial bothered me because it was so untrue.

September 1, 2009
I had a massage client in today that was real specific in what she wanted.

August 24, 2009
I got to go visit the dog today, at least astrally.

August 23, 2009
We found out today that we are not getting the dog.

August 20, 2009
I must be an animal. Or at least an animal person. I don’t think that means I am animalistic. But I do wag my tail now and then.

August 17, 2009
Something strange happened in my class the last couple of days. Someone kept pulling on my towel. Someone not there.

August 16, 2009
I just finished my second body mechanics class today. It went all right. There were things that could have been better, and this is why I’ll be looking at it over the next few months.

August 12, 2009
We had a mediumship class today, and I found out something about myself.

August 9, 2009
What is it about people and lifestyles? Why is it that anything different is wrong? Aren’t we all different? Why should we all be the same?

August 8, 2009
I had a stupendous Reiki 2 class today. We had 16 student and three helpers. Considering this involved group work including a healing chain, that much energy was wild.

August 1, 2009
I had an exceptionally large Reiki 1 class today. But even through the size and other hardships, it went very well.

July 19, 2009
I had my heart broken today. I had to do something I did not want to do. I had to give a found dog back to its owner. It would not be so bad, but I know the dog would have been better with us.

July 15, 2009
We had a mediumship class today and we had to talk for three minutes on a word given to us at random. I remember doing this some time back and having to talk for 10 minutes. This was much easier.

June 27, 2009
I was teaching my first body mechanics class this weekend, and I had a point where I was speaking some profound words. The thing is that they did not come from me.

June 19, 2009
And the comments just keep on coming. I think this one wins first prize.

June 18, 2009
I had an interesting session today. It involved unwinding and meditation.

June 10, 2009
Now, I have heard a few stories. I’ve even told a few. But this one is really strange.

June 9, 2009
I gave a talk to a massage class at FCCJ this morning.

June 2, 2009
The eyes have it.

June 1, 2009
I am really glad May is over. There was just much too much going on during that month.

May 23, 2009
I taught Reiki 3 today, and it was a great group of people, with the exception of the one spirit that wanted to fool around and disrupt things.

May 22, 2009
I had a client in today that I had not seen in four years.

April 23, 2009
Some of the comments of clients have really surprised me lately.

April 21, 2009
I did my first Temple Lomi session today since getting back from the classes. The great thing about it was it was for a paying customer. The real great thing about it was that what she said afterwards was astounding.

April 20, 2009
I attended Temple Lomi Lomi classes this past weekend, and it was an amazing time that totally surprised me.

April 6, 2009
I have classes coming up and a little over a week in Temple Lomi Lomi, which is something that I do not do full sessions of regularly. I incorporate many of the moves in my regular massages, but most people do not know what it is to ask for it for full sessions. I did a demonstration session in a trade last week and found that I really need to practice before the class. The comments from today’s ‘victim’ were wonderful.

April 4, 2009
Yesterday, I gave my response to the announcement on the press release from the Catholic Church. Today, I have put one from William Lee Rand from his website,

April 3, 2009
Well, we have had the announcement by the Catholic Church. Today, read my response. (Actually, any time the Catholic Church want to advertise for me, I'm all for it.)

April 2, 2009
Well the newspaper article has already generated a call. But I’m afraid this is what I can expect to be getting.

April 1, 2009
Well, here it is... April Fools Day. What better day for the article in the Times-Union to come out.

March 30, 2009
The article in H magazine came out today, and I managed to find a copy.

March 26, 2009
Well, I guess I should have expected it... the Catholic Church has gotten involved with Reiki, but not the way one would hope for. They have basically banned it saying it is non-scientific and superstition.

March 11, 2009
I worked on a client today that really frustrates me. She keeps doing things that make it harder for me to help her.

February 27, 2009
The comment of a client the other day really amused me.

February 26, 2009
I did a three minute massage today... in South Carolina... from Florida.

February 25, 2009
I officially freaked out a potential client today.

February 20, 2009
I had a phone call today from the editor of H Magazine, a publication of the Florida Times-Union. The conversation was interesting.

February 19, 2009
I had a walk-in client yesterday who surprised me when I asked how she heard of me.

February 18, 2009
Gut feeling. What is it? Do we listen to it? What happens when we don’t? I had a gut feeling I should talk about this today, and some things that have happened when I didn’t listen to mine.

February 17, 2009
Ok, I’m on a roll. What is it with people’s attitudes? I know that the most common elements in the universe are hydrogen and stupidity, but the latter seems to be prevalent.

February 16, 2009
What is it with the work ethic today? Why do people feel that a half-assed job is good enough? Yes, it’s rant time again.

February 14, 2009
I had a very interesting, yet disappointing Reiki session before I taught a Reiki 2 class today.

February 9, 2009
I did an awesome Reiki session on a client today, and he called back later to tell me so.

February 6, 2009
The universe is talking to me again. The problem is that I haven’t been listening. So, it has forced my hand... again.

January 27, 2009
Some time ago, I talked about The Secret, and what it professes to do. Well, I’ve had some more information given to me that makes sense and explains why this can work.

January 26, 2009
Something I talked about in the class the other day made me feel a need to write this post. It is the problem of the practitioner being married to the outcome of their sessions.

January 25, 2009
How my students found me yesterday was interesting. I should be used to hearing stories like this, but they still fascinate me.

January 24, 2009
We had a real good Reiki 1 class today with a few challenges.

January 12, 2009
We live in a fear based society. I realized that, but not as much as I did when I heard something that really pressed it home.
