I began weaning off almost a week ago and according to my Dr. I should be able to not take any no more now..... Sat, 10 Mar 2012 12:36:14 EST Weekly Forecasts Dear Spark Friends, <BR> <BR> It has been brought to my attention that having the weekly forecasts posted on so many Spark Teams is quite frustrating for people who are members of all of those teams as they get many duplicate messages both on their teams and in their e-mail. For that reason, I will only be posting the weekly forecast on one team each week.

Sun, 4 Dec 2011 17:54:19 EST Healing Crisis / Attunement Cleanse As I have been taught, every time you go for a Reiki attunement, you can face a Healing Crisis or Attunement Cleanse. At level 1, the cleanse is usually a physical cleanse of harmful elements in the body. Level 2 is usually a mental/emotional cleanse bringing up personal issues that need to be addressed, and level 3 is supposed to be a spiritual cleansing. <BR> <BR> I know that these are not hard and fast rules. My mom, who is also a Reiki practitioner, has been very candid with me about hav... Sat, 8 Oct 2011 09:10:27 EST Hi I found Reiki (just in the last few weeks) through my sister who practices Reiki In Germany. She has been telling me about it for a while but I never had the time to actually look into it until a few weeks ago when I attended a Reiki Meeting for stroke survivors (my husband is). I had always known that if your mind is not in harmony with your body your are not in a good place. <BR> I would love to learn how to do Reiki alot better so I can do it for myself and with my husband who really need... Fri, 1 Jul 2011 22:17:35 EST Hello to all Hi: I am Kathy from Southeastern Ontario and have been on Sparkpeople for 18 months. I have been at one of those dreaded plateaus for several months and just found this team. I am a retired nurse and a Reiki Master/Teacher (Usui). Another Reiki Master and myself teach classes as well as offer treatments. In our classes we do "double attunements", which is quite neat. I have a full size labyrinth in my back yard and we incorporate that meditation into our classes,when weather permits. <...

Was set to see her and she got a little under the weather, so I was pretty bummed that I had to postpone. I am going tomorrow night and afterwards am going to talk to her about 1 and 2 if we connect. There are some weekend programs in Southern California but I'd rather split it up and not cram it all in one weekend with alot of other people. I think I'd like to go through 1 and do some practicing and maybe attend ... Tue, 24 May 2011 03:22:47 EST I'm new to your team and so glad I found you Hi - Reiki keeps coming into my life and for some reason I have not acted on learning it. The message is so strong that I need to figure out what my roadblock is. <BR> <BR> I hope you don't mind me lurking around and absorbing your tips. I met an excellent Reiki master several hundred miles from me, so I'm debating if I should look around closer to home or else figure out if the message was for me to go there (not easy to pull up roots for the time it would take to fully learn.) <BR> <BR> ... Sun, 24 Apr 2011 03:45:59 EST Hi, I'm new. Hi, I'm Craig. I'm new here. I've had a long interest in learning Reiki and still have not yet learned it. I'm trying to learn as much as I can about it while trying to find someone I can trust to teach it to me. :D Thu, 21 Apr 2011 10:00:27 EST meditation Lets do 10-15 min of meditation and if we are already doing that increase by 5 mins and post it.

I'm a level 2 practitioner. <BR> <BR> Reiki has been one of the most fulfilling things I've done. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia a couple of months ago, and working on myself and others has been of great help. It brings peace of mind, eases my pain, and best of all - I'm able to make others feel a little better as well. <BR> <BR> My hope is to reach Master level at some point. Unfortunately, the co...

Then I read the following in a book on qigong: <BR> <BR> Some people have asked if a Reiki practitioner will sufficiently suffice. Reiki is not the same discipline and involves the practitioner applying touch, much as in a healing laying-on-of-hands application. However, if you feel that you receive benefit from Reiki treatm... Sun, 13 Sep 2009 15:07:56 EST religion and reiki Hi all, <BR> I am interested in learning Reiki. <BR> I have had Reiki several times and love the feel of the energy. At one session I asked if someone had come into the room (after the session) because I heard/felt others were there in the room and talking. Hmm... <BR> I am not at all religious but feel that I am spiritual. Not in the Christian or "church religion" sense. I do not mean to offend anyone in the beliefs or way of practice they choose with what I just typed. <BR> So...with t...

I'm sure I'm not alone in this. :) Thu, 25 Jun 2009 11:07:44 EST Waking Up to Reiki Saturday night (or rather very early Sunday morning), I woke up because my hands were very warm. The heat from my palms disturbed my sleep and, as I became more awake, I realized that I was giving myself Reiki in my sleep. I have no doubt that I did this because my body needed it but I was wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience, waking up to realize that you're giving yourself Reiki in your sleep. Tue, 23 Jun 2009 09:49:54 EST Excited about joining your team Hello everyone. I have just come across your team. I have completed my reiki two level and I absolutely love using reiki on myself and my two dogs. I have found it very calming and healing. I have recently had my tonsils removed and found the pain incredibly mild and the healing went well. This was certainly due to daily reiki sessions. I really cannot imagine not using reiki on a daily basis. It just lifts my mood and calms me everytime. I hope to speak to you all in the future. <BR> <... Tue, 16 Jun 2009 17:11:09 EST Reiki to Break Bad Habits I'm rereading the Reiki manual, something I try to do every year, and I came across a suggested on how to use Reiki to break a bad habit or lose weight. Basically, you write your name on a piece of paper. Beneath your name you write your goal (or affirmation) and then, over both, you draw the emotional/spiritual healing symbol (SHK). You then give Reiki to the piece of paper which is held between the hands. <BR> <BR> I was wondering if anyone else has tried doing this to break a bad habit... Sun, 14 Jun 2009 11:50:07 EST Master attunement and reactions... I took my master level attunement on Thursday and since then have lost 5 pounds. I have almost no desire to eat, but am eating to keep grounded. Has anyone else heard of this happening? I'm not complaining about the weight loss, but I haven't done any exercise since Thursday (been sleeping a lot) and it seems a little odd. Any thoughts? Sun, 7 Jun 2009 10:50:37 EST June Meditation Earth Grounding Meditation. <BR> <BR> Used for when you get that "Spaced Out" feeling. Helps to focus one's attention on the here and now. <BR> <BR> Begin by taking a deep, slow breath in ....release slowly out.

Sun, 31 May 2009 18:04:23 EST Healing for Stress My husband is, well, stressed out lately. Nothing is terribly bad among us, but we've taken some financial hits that came out of nowhere (we've only begun to start building our emergency fund, too.) And he's feeling pretty tense, nervous, and stressed about it all. <BR> <BR> I've tried giving him some energy to relax him, but being unattuned, I think I've worn myself out more than helped him.
