After Reiki, Endless Happiness

This is a part 2 blog. If you would like to read the whole story from the beginning please visit this link (

After the Reiki Healing session I was super crazy relaxed. It was hard to even get up. We sat down and chatted a bit more and I asked a few more questions. One of the crystals that was next to me caught my eye and I asked what it was. She told me it was a Himalayan Salt Rock crystal.  It naturally purifies the air and spiritually it releases all the negativity in you and the rooms that it is in. Given myquest for positivism, naturally I am open ears and open minded to anything that will steer me in a positive direction. We also talked about a variety of incense that release negativity and provide a calming or relaxing effect.

Shortly after our conversation I headed home. I had to literally question myself if I was too relaxed to drive. Is that possible? I never thought that being too relaxed would ever be an issue while driving. I chatted with the friends I live with and there guest for a little when I got home.  While I was talking and listening I could feel this overwhelming sense of positivism. It was great but I wondered how long it was going to last.

I woke up the next day feeling utterly refreshed. I was still feeling the Reiki cleansing all through my body. Felt like I sleep for hours, it was like a full body reboot. All that accompanied with my birthday and social plans for the evening, I felt like a kid in a candy store reaching into all the assorted bins and just eating everything. I was feeding off this positivism. It was reaching past levels of happiness that I have never felt before. It had reached beyond amazing.

Of course I had to go to work but that was a piece of cake. My efficiency levels were way up too.  Everything positive about my life was culminating as one and it was even hard to believe this for myself. All day I was thinking about those Himalayan Salt Rocks. I had to have them! I found a crystal healing store right by my work, so on my lunch I did a little good karma shopping.  I went overboard buying my Himalayan crystals, Himalayan salt lamp, and many incense.  With the ultra positive and happy feelings I was experiencing, when I walked into that gift shop It was like walking into another world. It balanced me out. I think the positivism was simply overwhelming because it was a brand new level of feelings for me. Being in that shop pretty much gave me better control of all of these awesome feelings.

Back to work and then my birthday was amazing. Now, usually the day after a really amazing day I will feel a little down but that was not the case at all this time. I couldn’t even chisel the smile off my face if I had to that day! Back to current time it has been almost 2 weeks and still this new existence of positivism within me remains. Entertaining my skeptical side I have even tried to be negative, I have tried to bring myself down and it does not work. I still come out positive. Everything in my thoughts has been so clean. I have been able to think about and except things for what they are. I have been able to distance myself from negative influences even more, and bring the positive ones closer.

This whole Reiki experience has put my future closer to the present and settled my thoughts that used to just take over my head. I understand that everyone has a different reaction to the healing so I am so grateful for this wave of positivism and happiness that seems endless. Endless happiness….that should be what we all strive for. We should experience as many things as we can in life and really tune in and learn from the things that effect us positively.  Positivism is hard to hold on to sometimes so the more we have within us the easier the hard parts of our life will be. I would certainly recommend Reiki for anyone that is curious about it. For those that don’t believe in these kinds of healing may not be reading anymore but there are plenty of other things on your mind that you want to try I guarantee. Bring your thoughts to reality, you really have nothing to lose by trying everything.

Everyday sense my Reiki healing I have had a piece of Himalayan Salt Rock in my pocket and in my car and in my room. It effects my not work for everyone but if you don’t have faith in the things you try in life none of it will ever work. Believe in everything you choose to try in life, and be more confident in yourself, only then will you be able to  live a positive life.

Have a great day. Be positive. Live

Next week I will not be posting, I will be on vacation.  I will re-blog older posts that perhaps were missed. Please still continue to share my blog with your friends. The more positive influences we have in our lives the better. Thank you so much


Eyes Closed, A Reiki Experience

For those of you who would prefer the shorter version, well, my Reiki experience was AMAZING! DONE!

For those that would like a little more detail here we go!

Starting off I refrained from doing much research on the subject of Reiki Healing. I wanting to go into the experience with a curious mind instead of a expectant mind. I Am so glad I did, I don’t know that I could have had the experience that I did had I known to much about it beforehand.

I got plenty of rest and tried to keep myself calm throughout the work day. you could say I pre-gamed for it, ha!  This is not hard to do because I know and do my job well and my boss is amazing. I went for my Reiki Healing right after work. I arrived to Carols with an open door and before I could even step inside the beautiful aroma of incense had flooded my senses. I absolutely love incense. Hugs were exchanged immediately and I was guided into her fragrant Reiki Healing sanctuary of crystals and spiritual keep sakes. We sat down and first she did a card reading. It is really amazing how spot on she can be with minimal information. For those of you who don’t know me I am not easily fooled so her accuracy is quite astonishing. It is easy to see Carol has great passion for what she does. She really put into perspective, the life path I am taking, what I am doing well and what I need to work on. I have a great knack for positivism but the thing I still need to build on is my confidence. Every post I make, every quotes I come up with, every person I met and talk to is one step closer to better confidence in myself. I am grateful to know that I am on the right track.

The tarot card reading has put me in a calm and open minded mode as I am sure it is intended to do. Now begins the Reiki Healing process. I lay down on the table. I am asking many questions throughout which she certainly enjoyed answering. The lights are dim, the table bed was warm, there is meditation music in the background the incense are still glorious. She is giving minimal instructions just to the effect of what she will or will not be doing, as well as saying she may talk or may stay quiet. I asked if I could close my eyes and she was perfectly fine with that. I wanted to close my eyes because I believe it would allow me to have a fuller and truer experience. I did not want my psychological eye to be persuaded by her actions.

Needless to say my eyes are closed and I don’t know exactly where she is or what she was doing. The mystery of it was exhilarating in itself. Even when she made contact with me physically I could hardly tell and I am sure some of it I may have been unaware of in my relaxed state. All of the sudden I feel a tingling sensation from my waste to my toes. This was no ordinary feeling. It felt as though every cell of my body in the lower half was experiencing this unique tingle. Like a low electrical current. Keep in mind there was nothing resting on me, she was not touching me at the time and I was not given anything but these meditation crystals to hold in either hand. This feeling was passing as she proceeded. Then I could feel my stomach started to knot up for some reason so she began to open up the energy flow in my stomach and you literally could feel the knots untying in my stomach, this was nuts! During this I still had my eyes closed. You know when you close your eyes you see nothing right? It is all black or it is whatever you imagined it to be. Well I was still relaxing and amazingly the thoughts have been drained from my head. For me a mind void of thought is a rare treat. I began to see vivid colors roll across my eyes one at a time. This was amazing, the most vibrant of these colors was blue and then Light green. Never seen or visualized anything like this. To fully  explain this to you would be impossible. You really would have had to taken residence in my eye sockets and seen it for yourself. She did one final extraction of negative energy all the way around my body. This party you could feel but I was already in a Reiki relaxed trance at this point anyways.

After the healing was done I was super crazy relaxed. It was hard to even get up. We sat down shortly after and chatted a bit more and I asked a few more questions. I don’t know how effective cliffhangers are in the early stages of my blogging experience but Carol answered my questions and the days following Reiki was an astounding experience unmatched by anything I have ever felt previously.

Please stay tuned follow my blog and share it with your friends. Next Wed. I will explain my journey after Reiki.

Do you have a Reiki experience to share? From my understanding people can have very different experiences. I would love to hear others.

I hope everyone has a super relaxing day.

Bathtub Meditation

I know I usually post every other Wednesday, but I have so many great things to share with all of you these days. On my quest to love everything life has to offer I have tried many things. The best part about trying new things is it arises ideas and opportunities to do more new things.

I want to draw a quick bath(path!) to what I want to talk about today. I have been exploring different worship ceremonies. The one that is speaking most to me right now has more of a spiritual essences than religious. This spiritual venture has lead me to the ideas of meditation. I explored a few option of meditation and was unsuccessful at the time. I was recently introduced to Carol Kettley Rushton thru a mutual friend. She specializes in Reiki Healing and Spiritual Guidance. She gave me my first card reading ever. This was by far an amazing and enlightening experience. It for sure sparked a new friendship with another positive individual. I told Carol about my meditation attempts and she had suggested to combine the things I love into meditation.

Carol suggested what I will just coin as bathtub meditation. I love relaxing music and I love being in the water so it seemed like a very fitting suggestion. Now I want everyone to visualize the size of their bathtub…. Now picture a 6’2″ person fitting in there! HA! needless to say I fit myself in the tub!

I will tell you what I did, you are welcome to try this or come up with a variation of your own. I made myself a play list to go at least an hour with wordless relaxing music, you can make yours as long or as short as you wish. I played it thru head phones to cancel out any other noises. I ran a very hot bath with some scented bath balls. I turned the lights off so it was completely dark. I got myself in a good position in the tub and played my music. I shut my eye and I began to sweat and imagined that every bead of sweat was a release of thought until I was thoughtless and combining myself with the flow of the music. I just relaxed until the music stopped and IT WAS AMAZING!

This bathtub meditation was one of the most amazing personal positive experiences I have ever had. The music stopped and it actually took some time to come back to reality. I was so relaxed I could barely stand (literally)! Needless to say I slept well and the days to follow were very positive and relaxing as well. If you do try this please let me know how it works out for you.

I would like to show my gratefulness for the events and suggestions and pass on Carol’s information to you. She does so many great things and I definitely plan to go back and try this Reiki Healing with her next time.

If you could do me a great favor go and like her on Facebook Her and I would be very grateful.

Some of the things I have experienced through Carol’s guidance I never believed in before. However, my experience in trying it has brought something in clear focus for me. You will never benefit from something you don’t believe in. You can only benefit from what you do believe in! We should open ourselves up to try new things all our lives, you never know what kind of positive impacts you will encounter.

I hope all of you will check our Carol’s sites. Also, I challenge all of you to show a little faith in something you are skeptical about and see if any good comes from it.

Have a great day and thank you for following me.
