“If you look deeply into the palm of your hand, you will see your parents and all generations of your ancestors. All of them are alive in this moment. Each is present in your body. You are the continuation of each of these people.”

What’s Reiki??

I posted a video recently from my friend, Lotus Love. She’s a Reiki practioner and healer. After I posted it (and also after having a Reiki session with her), quite a few people have asked me ‘what exactly is Reiki?’

The video above covers it quite nicely. Basically, it’s a holistic healing modality in which a Reiki practioner acts as a conduit of natural healing vibrations. This article (via Green Lotus) also offers useful information about Reiki, including findings from a study of Reiki programs in hospitals, clinics, and hospice facilities throughout the US.

One of my intentions for this year is to learn to practice Reiki, so look out for more info on Reiki as we roll into 2012!

“If the last year has been hopelessly bad, the New Year must be hopefully good. Remember, no matter what our trials have been, or how discouraged we are, if we make a continued effort to be better and to succeed we will find that, being made in the image of God, we are endowed with unlimited power. We are much stronger than our worst trials, no matter what they may be.”

Window of direct creation

My beautiful friend (and Reiki Angel), Lotus Love made me aware of this when I saw her recently. Currently, all of the planets in our solar system are in direct motion– from 12/26/11 until 1/23/12. It’s a rare occurence, and Lotus has made a video that spells it out beautifully… so I’ll let her do the talking.

Check out her video to learn more about the unique potential of this time. ♥

Remember when I was, like, ‘KALE’!

Sooo… remember when I was all like… Kale!! Yeah, Kale is king! Wahoowa!!

It could have alternately been titled, “How to get your family to eat a bunch of kale before dinner.” Seriously, the photo above is the only one I snapped before my 3-year-old & his papa ate an entire bunch of kale- before I had finished dinner.

I was shocked… like potato chips down the hatch… a family of three ate a bunch of kale before dinner. Please re-create this experiment because I’m still not certain it isn’t a freak occurence.

Kale chips, y’all. Wave of the future.

For the new year… for my love…

So… I awoke in the middle of the night, fearing Josh didn’t set his alarm, and also hoping he didn’t. I stayed awake for an hour+… trying to prepare myself (re-adjust mentally) for the condition of being apart.

This one’s for my BFF…

I miss you already.

Daily reminder

“…Many years ago I moved into a derelict house. The back door was nailed shut and had not been opened for fifteen years; once pried open it revealed a six-foot wall of seemingly impenetrable blackberry bushes, vines, and crabgrass. I wanted a garden. For many months I looked in despair through the window of the back door. The task seemed too large and too difficult. Then I decided upon a strategy that my mind could grasp. I would clear a four-foot patch of garden. The backyard was sixty-five feet long! As I would begin to dig and root, cutting and pulling my tiny patch, I resolved that I would focus my attention only on the four-foot patch. I would not even look at the other sixty-one feet of garden left to clear. Within minutes of beginning I would become completely absorbed in the insects, the tiny plants uncovered, and the pleasure of digging my hands into the brown earth. Each four-foot brown patch took about three hours because the crabgrass had to be dug out completely and the earth was rock hard. But three hours a week was an easily manageable commitment. When I was finished with the patch, I would step back and admire my good work, never allowing myself to consider the chaotic mess left remaining. How wonderful it looked! Each four-foot path was a unique wonder. Pathways buried two feet under emerged. A lawn mower, enveloped by grass (proof of the law of karma), was discovered. Not only was the task challenging, it became an adventure, and I eagerly anticipated what I might find each week. Within a year I had a beautiful lawn, an herb garden, and a patch of flowers to enjoy. But, more important, I enjoyed the process of transforming an inhospitable patch of ground into an urban paradise.”
