The Healing Benefits of Going Barefoot With Reiki.

www.thereikimuse.comAre you feeling scattered, drained, anxious, having trouble sleeping or headaches? A free healing session is just beneath your feet.

Going barefoot allows the Earth to scan your feet and give energy reflexology to your body where you need it. The energy will actually travel to your organs, like in reflexology.  Walking barefoot also stimulates your healing reflexes when uneven ground or rocks press into the soles of your feet.

When you sit or stand barefoot on the Earth, also called Earthing, you may notice a warm soothing energy radiate up your feet, legs and into the rest of your body. The Earth energy feels very similar to Reiki. The Earth energy has the ability to heal, sooth and reset our energy bodies.

The Earth gets to know you and gives you just what you need energetically, just like Reiki does.  The Earth feels your unique energetic imprint and supports your varying needs.

The Earth gives us negative charged electrons which neutralize free radicals in our body.  The Earth energy acts like an antioxidant. Being in direct contact with the Earth stimulates the body’s self-repair systems, just like Reflexology and Reiki do. The sun sends charged particles to the Earth and then the Earth shares this beneficial energy with us.

The best way to Earth and absorb the healing and nourishing energy is to be barefoot on the ground or sit on a cotton sheet or blanket. Walking on the beach or sitting on grass are very beneficial.  The Earth is basically sharing electrical currents of energy with you, so think moisture which conducts electricity.  Wood, rubber, plastic don’t conduct electricity.

Some of the healing benefits of Earthing are:

  • improved circulation
  • better sleep
  • reduced anxiety
  • increased energy and metabolism
  • feeling more centered and present (grounded)
  • decreased inflammation
  • balanced hormones
  • calms the nervous system
  • improved immunity

Sounds like some of the same benefits of Reiki and Reflexology, right?

If you are attuned to Reiki, give yourself the added benefit of a self Reiki session while you Earth.  It’s a good idea to spend about 5-20 minutes a day Earthing, longer if you can.  I know when I do, I always feel recharged and uplifted.

How can you Earth when ground is snow-covered or it’s too cold outside?  Well if you’re like me, you may find yourself sitting on a clear patch of ground that is not covered in snow in the blustery wind for a few minutes just because it feels so good.  It’s surprisingly warm.

Here’s a simple meditation to use Reiki to connect with that loving, nourishing and healing Earth energy. You can try this if the weather is not conducive to walking barefoot or you live in the city.  You can do this outside, close to the ground, if you can.  It will also work indoors.

  • Breathe deeply.
  • If you’re not outside, imagine yourself sitting directly on the ground.
  • Send Reiki to the center of the Earth.
  • Feel your heart lovingly connecting with the Earth’s heart chakra deep in the Earth.
  • Feel appreciation for your connection with the Earth and all the loving support she gives freely while the Reiki continues to flow.
  • Intend that the Reiki and Earth energy travel up your Earth Star and Root chakras into your body. Imagine the Earth energy going up your feet. You can even create a Reiki shower to keep the energy flowing for longer  to ground and charge you. (Instead of having the shower coming down from the top, have it spout up from beneath you.)
  • Allow your energy and heart beat to sync with the Earth energy and heart beat.
  • Keep feeling the Reiki facilitate your connection with the grounding Earth energy knowing the divine energy in your heart is connected with the Earth’s divine light.

Giving the Earth Reiki while she gives you her healing energy is such a mutually beneficial relationship.  Even if you aren’t attuned to Reiki, the Earth feels the healing effect of your love and appreciation.

Happy Earthing!

Back to School with Reiki

School is in full swing again.  Are you ready for some ideas on how to make school and study time easier and more effective?  Do you or your child need to improve your attitude?  Whether you are enrolled yourself, have kids in school or you home school, there are energetic techniques to keep energy flowing freely to your body, mind and emotions.

If you’re tired of your kids (or yourself) coming home from school with chaotic, ungrounded energy, bad attitudes about home work, or just want to empower your (or your child’s) learning abilities, Reiki can help.

The Reiki Muse

Reiki helps protect your personal space at school which allows for more clear focus by eliminating distracting or draining energy.  If your child is attuned to Reiki, have her create a Reiki bubble around herself before heading to school.  The Reiki bubble can be filled with any qualities needed that day such as: confidence, creativity, happiness, or clarity.

Putting a power symbol around your child’s aura  forms a boundary that only allows loving energy in and out.  With a clear and bright space around you, you can focus on what’s important to you, without feeling others emotions, judgments, or negativity.  You could also create a Reiki shower for your child before they head to school.

You can also use Reiki to nurture positive relationships with teachers.  Send distant Reiki to your relationship with teachers that you or your child find difficult or challenging.  The Reiki can improve communication and understanding forming a more uplifting and supportive relationship.  If you don’t have 2nd degree Reiki, just write down “relationship between ‘teacher’ and ‘student'” and hold the paper in your hands letting the Reiki flow.  You don’t have to wait till a relationship has turned sour.   You can also use Reiki to bolster a student/teacher relationship that’s already positive to help keep it that way.

You’ll also want to create an uplifting study environment at home. Remember to put Reiki, including any symbols that you’re attuned to, or a Reiki shower over desks or study areas .  This will help you or your child settle into a studious frame of mind and feel good while doing homework.

The Reiki MuseReiki can help improve memory and understanding of new concepts and ideas.  If you or your child is studying for a test remember to use the mental/emotional symbol and the power symbol to assist in remembering things clearly.  For learning new ideas, you can use the second degree symbols along with the Karuna Reiki® symbol Gnosa.

Reiki can also foster more receptivity and release resistance to learning.  Using the mental emotional symbol, you can replace negative attitudes such as, “I’m bad at math.” with a more positive outlook like, “I’m getting better at math” or “I’m understanding more and more each day at school”.

If your child is struggling, remember to Reiki yourself, so you stay calm and centered.  It’s much easier to encourage your child’s learning when you’re coming from a loving and understanding frame of mind.  As a home schooling mom, I have to remember to do this occasionally too.

The Reiki Muse

Boost your child’s confidence with Reiki to help him make friends, think clearly, improve memory and be creative.  Reiki can make learning more fun with new perspectives and by creating healthy study habits.

Reiki is high vibrating energy that belongs in the class room.  Being at school and learning can be a bright, positive and more enjoyable experience with Reiki.

If you find yourself waiting for the bus, to pick kids up from school or sports practice, remember to nurture yourself with Reiki.  Remind your children to Reiki themselves too.

Happy learning!

In Light,

The Creation and Beneficial Uses of A Reiki Shower

Have you ever wanted the Reiki to keep flowing over an area while you work on another area of the body?  Have you ever wished that everyone entering your home would clear their energy upon entering?  Have you ever desired your morning shower to clean more than just your physical body?

Try creating a Reiki shower or Reiki rain. The Reiki Muse






How do you make this Reiki rain you may ask?  It’s really quite simple whether you’re attuned to Reiki, level I or II.

If you’re attuneded to the second degree, draw the distant symbol vertically in the air and the power symbol horizontally below the distant symbol.  Visualize the Reiki coming through the distant symbol and raining out of the power symbol like water from a shower head.  

If you’re a 1st degree Reiki practitioner, just visualize a shower head or a ball of Reiki raining down in beautiful colors over the area you place it.

The Reiki shower will allow Reiki to flow over an area clearing and charging the space continuously.  When you create the Reiki shower intend that it remains active for 12 to 24 hours.  You can reset them as often as needed.

Beneficial Uses for a Reiki Shower

You can use the Reiki shower to clear a space in your home.  I like to leave the Reiki showers over my doorways to keep my space sacred.  That way when someone enters my home, the Reiki will clear their energy as they walk through the door.  

I just finished a long drive and sent distant Reiki ahead of myself to the part of the drive I usually get a bit tired.  Then I realized I didn’t need to wait till I was tired to Reiki myself.  I created a Reiki shower over my car right then while I was feeling good.  I kept seeing and feeling the colorful and energizing Reiki supporting my drive.  I never did get tired on my 13 hour drive.

You could try creating a Reiki shower over your house plant that needs some extra love or your garden.  Try one over your bed for a rejuvenating sleep.  Put one over your shower head and feel the extra deep cleaning of your aura. You can leave it over yourself all day long along with your protection roses.  Notice how your day goes with Reiki showering your aura all day long.

When I’m giving healing Reiki session I use the Reiki shower technique often when I want to keep the Reiki flowing over a receptive part of the body when I’m called to move to another position.

Here’s some other ideas for where to place a Reiki Shower over:

  •  cooking stove
  • campfire
  • desk for studying
  • the bathtub 
  • hospital bed
  • massage table
  • meditation area
  • TV
  • computer 
  • yoga mat
  • continuous brew kombucha

What ideas do you have for using a Reiki shower?

5 Ways to Help Reiki Flow Stronger When Someone is in Pain

Last night when my 5-year-old daughter had her first earache I was reminded how to most effectively give Reiki to someone in pain.  She was crying, moaning and in the worst pain I’d ever seen her in.  Of course that’s hard to watch and not be attached to the healing results of Reiki.

I instantly gave her Reiki to her ear.  The pain didn’t seem to be going away.  The Reiki didn’t seem to be flowing strongly.  So I got out my homeopathic remedies and gave a couple of rounds of those.  Then I pulled out the Children’s Tylenol, for the first time ever for her.

After I had done everything else I could think of do at night I went back to Reiki.  I called on my Reiki guides, healing guides and Archangel Raphael.  Raphael always has good healing direction for me and I heard him whispering in my ear once I relaxed, as the Reiki was flowing stronger and stronger.

If You find yourself in a situation of giving Reiki when You’re in pain or someone else is in pain and the Reiki doesn’t seem to be flowing very much.  There are things You can do to  help the Reiki flow, even when there’s intense pain happening.

Here are 5 ways to help the Reiki flow stronger when relieving pain: The Reiki Muse

1. Get your ego out of the way!  I always affirm before a healing session: “I am a clear and open Reiki channel and my ego has stepped aside”.   This is a reminder to let Reiki do it’s work and I’m not the one doing the healing.  I’m just a vessel for the energy.  The more I put my ego in by thinking things like “I want to take the pain away”, the less effective the healing process is and the more likely I am going to take on unwanted energy.

2. Relax and Breathe! When You hurt yourself or are watching someone You love in pain, pay attention to your breath.  Shallow breathing doesn’t help you relax.  It keeps You in panic mode.  Notice how much stronger the Reiki starts flowing when You slow your breath and relax.

If You hurt yourself, take a moment to center and inhale and exhale slow deep breaths.  If You are Reikiing someone else in pain, remind them to focus on relaxing and breathing.  Resisting the pain makes it worse. Talk calmly to the person experiencing the pain.

3. Envision the pain leaving the person so that they are returned to their state of wholeness. I imagine the energy of the pain being grounded into the Earth.  If You know Karuna Reiki® try using the Kryia and Rama symbols which really helps ground the pain.

When I started Reikiing my daughter last night I was remembering how bad ear aches hurt when I was a child.  I was literally feeling the pain.  Well, that didn’t help.  Archangel Raphael reminds me often about feeling the peace and wholeness in my body where someone else is hurting.    Feeling their pain adds fuel to the fire, so to say.

In my daughter’s case last night, I visualized the pressure in her ear being relieved and saw her ear in its state of health and wellness.  A working knowledge of anatomy helps with seeing the body in its state of wholeness.  If You lack anatomy training, just do your best.  You can just affirm that the body is in its state of wholeness.

4. Trust that the body knows how to heal itself. The Reiki really supports and speeds up the process.  When You allow yourself to relax into the knowing that the body has a brilliant self repair ability, it helps the Reiki flow better through You.

5. Imagine your hand is a Reiki magnet pulling the pain out of the body. When You are Reikiing someoneThe Reiki Muse else,  have them visualize your hand pulling the pain out of their body.  This gives them something to focus on and helps speed the process because their mental state has gone from one of pain to relief.

Of course if You are attuned to second degree Reiki, don’t forget CKR, the power symbol.  You’ll feel the Reiki get stronger with that symbol especially after you’ve relaxed and stopped worrying.

When using Reiki to relieve pain remember to keep yourself calm, relaxed and breathe.  Remind yourself that everything will be okay.  Try not to imagine the worst.  That just keeps You in a state of resistance of the healing process.

Trust yourself to know what to do.  Depending on the situation You may need to seek medical or other professional help.  In my daughter’s case, she woke up feeling good this morning.

In Reiki light,

Reiki Makes Warping Time Easier

Have You ever wanted to get somewhere faster than humanly possible?  Do You believe You have the capacity to warp time?  Do You believe time is an illusion?  Then read on…

The first time I warped time, I had no idea that I was even doing so.  I had no conscious thought about warping time.  I was aware that time was an illusion though.

My first encounter warping time was when my niece was born in 1996.  I drove my sister from Sedona, AZ  up Oak Creek Canyon to the hospital in Flagstaff, AZ in 20 minutes.  My niece’s father was timing my sister’s contractions on the way up to Flagstaff.  Therefore, he knew how long this journey took us.  If You aren’t familiar with this area of the country.  The road between Sedona and Flagstaff is a windy canyon road.  The journey to the hospital normally takes 40 to 45 minutes.

My brother in-law was amazed and kept asking me how I got to the hospital so fast.  He could even see the speedometer and knew that I was not speeding, at least not recklessly.  I was very aware of taking the turns slowly because I didn’t want to make the labor pains worse. My sister was the first time I had been with a woman in labor.

My niece’s father made me aware that something out of the normal had happened, that I had warped time.  I really didn’t think much of it.  It took a while before the full impact that I had jumped ahead in the time/space continuum.

At some point later, I read an article about warping time.  It gave a fully explanation on how to warp time.  I wish I remembered where I read this so I could pass it on. It was then that I realized how I had warped time subconsciously. Here’s the points I remember about howThe Reiki Muse to warp time consciously.

  1. See your destination in your mind’s eye.  I was visualizing the hospital all the way there.  We had just been there that day trying to get my niece to turn in the womb since she was breech.
  2. See yourself arriving at a certain time.  I live in Nederland, CO and I can get to the hospital in Boulder in 20 minutes if needed and traffic cooperated.  The drive is a canyon drive similar to the drive between Flagstaff and Sedona.  I really thought it was normal to be able to drive to the hospital in Flagstaff in 20 minute.  So I saw us arriving in 20 minutes.  Looking back, I’m certain I was energetically driving us in Boulder Canyon.
  3. Ignore any landmarks that give You a sense of timing. Pretend You have blinders on.  That part was easy.  It was dark and I hadn’t driven Oak Creek Canyon enough to have any landmarks that told me I was a certain distance from the hospital.  In fact, at this point I think I thought it was only 17 miles between Sedona and Flagstaff.  I think it’s more like 27 miles.   I never once thought at any point, “We’re only 10 minutes away from the hospital from here.”
  4. Trust and know You’ll reach your destination when You see yourself there with clear focus and just pay attention to your journey, the road in front of You.  Be relaxed as possible.  That’s all I did.  Drive and focus on driving quickly on the straight parts of the road and slowly and comfortably around the corners for my sister.  I still remember being in what felt like another world or a tunnel, paying attention to the road and how my sister was doing.  At the same time knowing I could get there in 20 minutes.
  5. Believe it’s possible. Get your analytical mind out-of-the-way. I had no doubt in my mind I could make it from Sedona to Flagstaff in 20 minutes.  So it worked then.  I now “know” how long it’s supposed to take.  So repeating this exact time warping feat might be more challenging if I attempted it again.

Now that You have the basic steps for warping time.  You can add Reiki to the formula to make warping time easier.  The distance symbol from the second degree of Reiki transcends time and space so everything can be experienced in the now.

You can activate the distance symbol while seeing yourself happily arriving at your destination at a certain time.  You can imagine the distance symbol lying on the road ahead of You.  Remember to Reiki yourself while You drive to keep  focused and calm while driving, walking or biking.

I use this time warping technique often and most of the time successfully.  I have been asked more than once, “Did You fly down the canyon?”  Why, yes I did, on the wings of Reiki.

Enjoy using this time warping technique.  I look forward to hearing how it works out for You.  If You get there when You saw yourself arriving and You feel good when You get there.  Count it as a success.  Even if You only shaved a few minutes.

Reiki Blessings to You!

Adding Light to Bureaucracy

The Reiki MuseIf You ever find yourself dealing with an organization that will affect your life in some manner, send them Reiki.  It could be an insurance company, a bank, a credit card company, unemployment office, a university, or you name it.

You’ve never met this person who will decide something that matters to You, and You most likely never will.  She may make the decision of getting approved or denied, accepted or rejected, interviewed or not.  It’s just normal daily stuff for them, but it could mean the world to You.

Try sending Reiki to this unknown person at their desk and to Your paper work, or email.  I like to imagine the person reading my information and feeling good.  I see light emanating from my words on paper and entering the decision makers energy field.  I send Reiki to the whole situation.

I trust that the person working in that office will make a choice based on the highest good for all concerned.  So if it’s in my highest path to get approved or accepted then I will.  Especially with the person working on it is feeling good when in contact with my information.

If it doesn’t serve me to be approved then I won’t be.  I trust there’s another alternative that is more in alignment with me.  Whether that be another job or company or another solution.

Remember when Reikiing someone from a distance always intend that those unknown people receive Reiki at their own free will.

So next time You find yourself dealing with bureaucracy, send Reiki.  It really will help things go smoothly and in Divine timing.

How Does Your Garden Grow?

Mine grows with Reiki.  Reiki is a great way to enhance your garden because it helps plants flourish.

I live at altitude, in a place with a short growing season.  I’m not an expert gardener. What I know, I’ve learned by trial and error.  I’ve been using Reiki in the garden for years and watching the vegetables grow.

I now have plants like kale, tulsi, asparagus, nettles, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, peppermint, garlic, and chives that just show up every year.  Then I add things like sugar snap peas, carrots, beats cilantro, lettuce and other greens.

I must admit, I’m a bit of a lazy gardener and I rely heavily on Reiki to grow my garden.  I start out with high hopes of tending the garden with dedication.  Then as summer rolls on I just leave the garden to its own devices.  Sure, I water my garden now and then and I even try to fertilize it too.  Thanks to my good friend with the rabbits, I’m trying rabbit pellets this year.  I Reikied those too.

I use Reiki at every stage of gardening: turning the soil, planting the seeds, watering, weeding, fertilizing, and harvesting.  I even send the garden distant Reiki from my crystal grid.  The results are, everything grows, including the weeds.  Reiki does not discriminate.

The Reiki MuseHere’s what I like to do when I weed.  I like to imagine that by pulling each weed, I’m removing unwanted thoughts or energy from myself.  This means that I usually start weeding when I’m not feeling centered or in a bad mood.

By having my hands in the Reiki filled dirt, I find myself grounded.  With the intention of releasing unwanted thoughts, my mood improves with the pull of each weed.  Also, by being in the Reiki filled garden the Reiki works on me as well.  I leave the garden feeling good and back in alignment.

Remember to Reiki your garden.  Here’s to Reiki filled vegetables and to feeling good playing in the dirt!

3 Ways to Use Reiki Behind the Wheel

So now You’ve topped off your gas tank with Reiki charged gasoline.  Don’t stop there.  There’s many other ways to use Reiki while driving?The Reiki Muse

1. Reiki your car.

Reiki the car through the steering wheel, this keeps the automobile running smoothly.   The power symbol offers protection while driving.  Just place the power symbol over the dash-board and visualize it on all four sides of the vehicle.  Reiki I practitioners can just imagine the Reiki filling up the car and the area just around the car.

Reiki the tires to provide more traction.  I imagine little suction cups on the surface of the tires with the power symbol in the middle.  This is great for driving in rain or snow.

2. Reiki your path.

Activate the distance symbol and the power symbol, imagining the distant symbol lying horizontally over the road and the power symbol vertically in front of You, leading You to your destination.  I have a mantra that I say all the time “cho-ku-rei, lead the way“.  This keeps You from getting lost and will guide You to take the best route for You.  For example, if travelling You’ll end up on the scenic by way.  If going to work You’ll be guided to take the quickest route.

3. Reiki yourself.

Reiki your root chakra to keep yourself grounded and energized while driving.

Reiki Your thigh to help reduce motion sickness.  The stomach meridian travels along the thigh and it’s a convenient place to Reiki while driving.  Your own thigh or the person in the passenger’s seat.

Reiki yourself to prepare yourself for arriving at your destination.  For example, if You need be speaking when You arrive, you could Reiki your throat chakra.

Happy driving!

How to Get Better Gas Mileage

Everyone loves to get better gas mileage, right?  I sure do.  Here’s a very simple way that doesn’t cost a cent.

When You are pumping Your gas, hold the nozzle and pump slowly.  Slowly as You can.  That’s not the most important part.

The Reiki MuseThe key is to put Reiki into Your gas tank with the gas.  If You know the symbols activate them.  Just let the Reiki flow from your hand into Your car’s tank.

If You don’t know Reiki at all, just imagine golden energy coming into Your crown and down through Your heart into Your hands.  At the same time imagine gold energy coming up through Your feet from the earth and connecting with the gold energy You’re bringing down from Your crown.  Imagine this golden light filled energy going into Your tank from Your hands.  You can also imagine the golden energy along with the Reiki too.

Now, don’t be shocked if Your car acts a bit funny, a little sputter or two, after You start driving with Reiki filled gas.  Your car needs to get used to it.

For you logical minded people, like me.  Keep track of Your gas mileage.  I usually get a couple of miles per gallon better by adding Reiki to the gas.

Another added benefit to this technique is getting gas becomes quite a blissful experience.   I rather enjoy it.  I hope You do too.  Let me know when You try it.

Heartfully Yours!


Increasing the Reiki Flow

No matter if You are a Reiki I practitioner or a Reiki Master there are ways to help the Reiki flow more strongly.  Of course You can use the power symbol if you are attuned to it.  Right now I’m going to suggest some other ways to help the Reiki flow more powerfully when You want it to.

The first way is to feel appreciation for the Reiki right now.  I offer thanks before, during and after a session.  When I feel grateful for the Reiki energy I feel it grow stronger.  It follows the law of attraction by giving attention to the Reiki it flows more noticably.  Appreciation also raises your vibration which allows the Reiki to flow more through You.

The second way is to allow your heart to open and feel love for the person or animal or situation that You are Reikiing.  Give it a try next time You are Reikiing someone.  Just start thinking loving thoughts or bring attention to the love that pours from Your heart to theirs.  If You are Reikiing Yourself, then think loving thoughts about Yourself.

A third technique that is especially helpful to Reiki I practitioners is to rub your hand on where you want the Reiki to flow more strongly.  If you are working on someone’s arm for example, just gently rub Your hand over the spot.  Then allow the Reiki to keep flowing.  You will most likely feel more heat or tingling sensation in your hand.

A fourth way to increase the flow of Reiki is to get another attunement.  Each attunement increases the flow of Reiki.  You can even receive another attunement to the same level that You’re already attuned.   Of course You will need to contact a Reiki Master Teacher for another attunement.   I myself will re-attune people without having them take the entire class again.

Finally, receiving Reiki sessions will remove energy blocks and align Your energy so You can more fully channel the Reiki to others.  You can trade with other Reiki practitioners or find a Reiki share to attend in Your area.  If you live near me in Colorado, I have a Reiki share list to email notices of Reiki shares.

In any case, no matter how much you feel the Reiki flowing, trust that the Reiki is always working for the highest good of all involved.
