I've been hesitant to write anything lately about what's going on in the world. Honestly, I haven't known what to say. I've been following this story since late December when the first stories were beginning to be shared and let me tell you guys, I confess, I've heard the "facts" about this virus, and what to do if you do catch it, and the likelihood of death because of it, but my animal brain just wants to cut and run! With some news coverage downplaying the whole scenario, and others becoming the subtle voice of panic, it's hard not to feel lost during these crazy times. What brings me comfort these days is lots of prayer, connecting to the divine gives me constant solace, meditation to clear my mind, really diving into my personal program - Cosmic Wellness, which includes plenty of mindful movement and giving myself + my members, daily Reiki energy treatments.
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. This type of energy treatment is non-invasive and can also be performed at a distance. As a Reiki Master myself, I often give distance Reiki energy treatments, and even more so now that we, as a community, are actively practicing social distancing in accordance with CDC guidelines. Distance Reiki works according to the Hermetic Law of Similarity, which holds that we are all connected, as we are all energy matter and part of a larger whole.
As an empath, I FEEL, and soak up the energy of those around me. After I've read or listened to a particularly sad or disturbing news article, I feel dipleated, like after Harry Potter battles the Dementors in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Sometimes I would try to medicate with Cannabis to help lift my mood, which definitely works, don't get me wrong. Cannabis has and always will be my medicine of choice when it comes to defeating the everliving bad vibe, but when you've been overcome with the sensation of the world's sorrow, stress, anxiety, fear, and anger, that shit really gets overwhelming! Insert the incredible healing power of Reiki.
After a pleasantly cleansing session, I honestly feel almost miraculously lighter. Like my energy feels light, soothed, held and nourished. There's this sense of deep relaxation and as if the previously turbulent emotional and energetic waters are now as smooth as glass, calm, centered and grounded. I didn't forget about the world's problems, but the shocking energy is no longer in my personal energetic field, so I am able to approach it from a higher consciousness, or clearer perspective, without emotional overload.
I think Reiki energy treatments are an incredibly important asset to the healing of not only our nation, but our planet. With so many of our own citizens panic buying and the stores remaining empty, with businesses closing their doors for the next several weeks and so many being without jobs, with our loved ones becoming sick and the chaos of not knowing what's next for us, Reiki can help the collective gain a little peace. Even if only for a short while, that peace can help us to make more conscious decisions, it can give us a moment of clarity to be a little more selfless, to come together as a community, as a nation, to rise above this in love and kindness.
This being said, I want to offer you distance Reiki sessions on a donation basis! I know it's getting kind of crazy out there, and I want to help bring a little peace to your corner of the world. Distance Reiki sessions are super easy. They're performed at a distance, so you can relax in the comfort of your own home during the session. Donation based sessions typically last about 20 - 30 minutes. If you're interested in a session, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a time for your session. If you'd like a longer Reiki session, please let me know in your email! Donations can be made through Venmo @Heather-Alexandar or PayPal.
My prayers are with you, my Cosmic SoulFam. If you feel called to work with me, reach out today! Let's begin this process of gaining grounded clarity, let's unwind the tangled ropes of stress to help us move through this crisis together with grace.
All my love soulful ones
