Energy Exchange

When Usui & Hayashi taught Reiki in Japan, they taught within a tradition that honored and respected wisdom keepers and their teachings. The Reiki Principles remind us to:

Today only
anger not
worry not
With appreciation Do work
To people be kind

Mind body change it for better
Usui Reiki method


Goddess Lakshmi means Good Luck to Hindus. The word 'Lakshmi' is derived from the Sanskrit word "Laksya", meaning 'aim' or 'goal', and she is the goddess of wealth and prosperity, both material and spiritual. She is dressed in red, with cascades of coins flowing from her hands. She is a Mother Goddess, Mata, & her month of celebration is October.
In the mid 90s, a friend told me she saw an association with Lakshmi, & I found a small statuette at the Crystal Wizard. I read about Mata Lakshmi, & gave her a fluorite throne, & surrounded her with rose petals, coins, other symbols of abundance. Here's a traditional Lakshmi meditation.

On his blog at Healing Boston, fellow Reiki Master & Lightwork practitioner Jordan Bain writes about fine tuning our relationship with Money:
"This is a daily and ongoing process that cannot be ignored.  Ignoring your friends is not a good practice, and this relationship with money is no different.  Money is a flow and we want that flow to be clear, and open wide.

"Go inside in meditation to talk with your Higher Self.  Visualize the light flowing through you from above,  Breathe, in through the nose and out through the mouth, deeply.

"Let yourself feel your whole body becoming light and emptying out so everything is in flow.  Give yourself 10 minutes here.  Call in your spirit guides and angels, and your higher self.  Ask: "what is the lesson behind why I'm having trouble with money flowing in my life?"  and listen for the inner knowing to come, however it may come to you.  

"If you're not getting anything consciously, yes, this can take practice; and yes, this practice is built over time and you are never truly mastered in this practice.  I have been asking many questions of my guidance for many years with many different results, and it's all about how clear, clean, and quiet I can get my mind in any given moment.  Light and guidance cannot reach a busy mind --- which is directly back to the point of why this article is title "Money and Meditation", not just "Money".  Get clean and clear inside, and then ask yourself:

  1) "what is blocking my financial flow?"
  2) "what can I do to shift this short-term?"
  3) "what can I do to shift this long-term?"
  4) "is there anything else I need to know or do about this situation?"


"Start with these or make up your own.  Either way, just do it.  Meditation is about doing it, not thinking about doing it." (blog post Dec 1, 2013)

-- I often journal about what came up, & an optional way to work with this is write these questions in 'dialogue' format with one of your guides, with Lakshmi, or with 'the Deva of Energy Exchange.' Jot down any action steps, & give yourself a time frame. In a week, review what came up, & any more insights you receive.

Tune Up

Months have passed after our lovely First Degree Reiki course & frequent blogging here! 

For 7 or so years I've included tuning forks in some sessions, & this week I received Eileen McKusick's 'Tuning the Human Biofield' on her studies of energy & our bodies, & her use of Tuning forks, especially in the energy or 'biofield' around the body. I love her image of the 'mail slot' type experience, where information on how to proceed comes in, as though 'a mail slot in the back of the head randomly opens, & a note drops in' (paraphrased - page 54)

I have several sets of tuning forks, the weight Acutonics 'Planetary tuner' basic set, & Edna Violette Raye Doan's Intention tuners (most of these are not weighted - and intended for off body work. I took the Acutonics practitioner training, & around the same time, found a set of the Intention Tuners on e-bay, from a practitioner who was switching fields! What serendipity. 

Lightweaving is also done off the body, & I've been using the Intention Tuners for some of that 'weaving' during recent sessions, with great results! One long time client & friend told her husband 'That was the BEST massage I've ever received!' 

"In water and watery solids, such as the human body, sound travels over 4x faster in the form of photons or sonic shear waves. As the sound emanating from tuning forks strikes the body's skin interface, complex electrical & photon interactions take place that can alter tissue dielectric properties including altering various acupuncture meridians. ...." (xiv - in Dr Karl H. Maret's forward to Tuning the Human Biofield)

& the explanation for why/how tuning forks work: "teeny reciprocal tuning forks on each cell membrane, producing either incoherent or coherent frequencies, 'changing their tune,' as it were, when bathed in coherent sound." (P 39) 

Eileen writes: "Sound balancing is a therapeutic method that makes use of the frequencies produced by tuning forks to detect and correct distortions and imbalances within the biomagnetic energy field, or biofield, that surrounds the human body." (p1)
& quotes Lynn McTaggart (The Living Matrix): "Informational medicine that changes disturbed information available in the biofield is going to be the future of medicine."

I am grateful for her work, & look forward to exploring her work in the biofield!
I intend to order a set of Solfeggio forksm the set Eileen uses most frequently to complement my others.
