As this podcast goes to air, we are moving through an intense week of cosmic forces. Okay… so just about every week this year has been intense… do you agree?
I think I can hear everyone’s head shaking on this Q!
But it is one of those weeks… Not only is Mars in retrograde stirring up anger and aggression within, but now Mercury goes retrograde. And that is all things that are in the communication arena. It’s how you talk… how you relate… your zooming… social media… relationships… etc etc. Mercury retrograde is in Scorpio, so it can have a sting to it. And it starts at the dark of the moon. However, there is a new moon in Libra happening towards the end of this week. As I say… yea for new moon… new beginnings and a chance to start again.
All of this I talk about on the Energy Focus of the week, which you can find live on Sunday nights on Facebook or Instagram. Having the tools and techniques to rest, to pause and reset your energy is so vital.

In today’s episode, I thought I would talk about a question that I am getting lots of texts and emails about… Virtual Reiki Classes. Maybe because I have one scheduled at the end of the month, but more likely because I am still seeing many people who aren’t ready to venture out into the mask wearing world we are in.
While these restrictions seem to be producing positive results in terms of reducing the spread of illness, according to the medical authorities, many other issues are coming forward, especially in the area of mental health and wellness.
Staying at home can be very hard. Maybe your conditions are less than ideal… small space… feeling isolated… no social interaction… not getting along with your significant other… home schooling… the list goes on.
Having methods to help you feel connected to a greater source is so vital.
Many of you have heard me talk about the importance of spirituality. It has been proven that having a Spiritual path can help you to flourish. Spirituality is linked to many important aspects of human functioning—like having positive relationships, high self-esteem, being optimistic, and having meaning and purpose in life.
The thing is… you don’t have to be a religious person to practice spirituality.
In fact, my community is really the Spiritual But Not Religious Population.
When I was going through all the betrayal in my marriage and the process of divorce, there was no religion in my family. My husband at the time was Italian raised Catholic but had denounced the church. And my background was southern Jewish… but didn’t really mix with the Catholic Italian. There was no church or temple practicing an interfaith religion, but there was Spirituality.
Spirituality was inclusive, which meant it included me and my situation in the practices.
The one thing that I found through all of it was Reiki. Reiki Energy, a natural system of healing, has a spiritual component to it. Reiki helped me set up a daily routine that allowed me to go within myself and clear out the anxiety, the stress, the overwhelm, the negative thoughts and find a source bigger than me that could help me to align and feel the higher good coming forward.
To me, it was like a miracle that had arrived in my life.
And now, being in the midst of Covid, finding ways to persevere and move beyond the situation has allowed me to continue to share this work, virtually.
The virtual Reiki classes I teach are held on the Zoom platform. One of the things I have noticed by teaching energy classes on this platform is that people are much more accepting of this possibility, not only for learning but also for experiences.
In fact, one of my students was commenting on how she was always anxious and picking up everyone else’s anxiety through all her Zoom calls. Once she realized it, she was able to use some of these tools, to release the excess energy, ground her energy and then stand up and promote some new ideas without the dreaded fear she normally had.
This is practical spirituality being used in everyday life.
Reiki is one of these tools that you can learn to help you with your energy.
Reiki energy knows no boundaries of time or space. The energy travels anywhere and to anyone, kind of like our cell phones. You don’t see the wires or the transmission but you definitely feel the connection to others.
When I teach the virtual classes, we are able to connect with each person and practice these techniques.
Yes, it’s great to be able to be sociable, but given the times, the benefits of Reiki far outweigh the limitations.
I’ve included a long distance Reiki meditation in this episode so that you can experience Reiki through this podcast, virtually! As you are guided through the meditation, notice what you notice.
Consciousness is changing.
Having the tools and techniques to release stress, combat anxiety, get over fear and worry in your life will make the difference in not just surviving and getting by, but to actually thriving and excelling in your world.
You can find the details for the Reiki class here. You can join from anywhere!
Reiki is a gift that you give yourself that will last a lifetime.
