Have Reiki Will Travel-What is Long Distance Reiki.

By Natasha Botkin 

What is our Personal Energy Field? 

Our bodies are comprised of different energy levels that resonate at various levels and speeds: depending whether we are speaking of your physical body, emotional body, mental body or spiritual body.  The speed upon which our energies proceed is based on how everything is working together.  Thus, this creates an energy field that is formed around one.

What is long distance Reiki

Long distance Reiki does hold the same similarities and effectiveness as in-person Reiki.   It is just the mode that is delivered differently. Therefore, a skilled Reiki Master can allocate Reiki to you in a distance setting.

Am I still receiving Reiki

Yes, one is still receiving Reiki.  The modality of Reiki is divinely limitless that which you seek, seeks you. In reverence, energy is energy, and the divine will designate what you need at this very moment.

What might I feel? 

Just as with in-person Reiki, one will feel their own individual experience.  This may be feeling sleepy or falling asleep, relaxed, peaceful, a surge of energies and so forth.  Please be sure to coordinate a time that is best for you to be present and enjoy the benefits of Reiki.

May you enjoy the benefits of Reiki.  

Yes I’d love to schedule a Reiki Session.

What is Reiki?

By Natasha Botkin 

The definition for Reiki states:

Reiki HandsReiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”. Another way to say this is Reiki is “spiritually guided life force energy.”

Where did this all begin? 

Usui-Sensei was born on 15th August, 1865.  His pen name is often called Mikao Usui. He did not have an easy life often taking the more difficult path.  It is said in 1922 on the twenty-first day of his fast,  he climbed Mount Kurama and felt a powerful light over his head.  This spiritually awakened Usui, and he acquired Reiki.  Next. he set out to try this on his family and friends, and often this brought immediate results to them.

From there Usui, founded and opened the Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai (Usui Reiki Healing Method Society). One would receive Reiki in a seated manner.  A student of Reiki would be appointed and study for years under the master.  Mikao Usui-Founder of Reiki

Which Lineage:

When looking at having Reiki provided for you or studying, one should know the lineage of the Reiki Master.

The originator of Reiki, as previously discussed, and the others are Hayashi Sensei and Hawayo Takata.  Hayashi was asked to open his own Reiki clinic just before Usui passed and is of the Usui Reiki lineage.  He followed the ideology of the originator and founder Usui, but began then to make adjustments from seated to lying down and adding more symbols.

Mrs. Takata was born in Hawaii and had fallen ill.  She felt that her only cure would be to travel for treatment in Japan.  This is where she received and learned of Reiki.  She often felt that “The heat from their hands was so strong, she said, that she thought they were secretly using some kind of equipment.”  She learned from the ways of Reiki from Hayashi and eventually made it back to Hawaii where she opened her own practice.  Some may say that Mrs. Takata’s downfall was the amount that she charged to learn Reiki from her ($10,000), and this was not the way Usui had procured Reiki to be.  Some may say that Mrs. Takata also created her “own version” of Reiki.

Where does Reiki come from?

Reiki is a subtle energy that is brought forth from the divine.  A Reiki Master is a conduit of the Divine.

What will this feel like to the client? 

This will vary from person to person.  One may feel a warm sensation, where as another many feel deeply relaxed.  It is not unusual for a client to fall asleep during a Reiki session or have the feeling of floating out of their bodies.

The benefits of Reiki: 

  • Strengthens spiritual connection and brings forth an inner peace and harmony.
  • Calms the mind and aid
  • in clarity.
  • Helps provide a more positive outlook by balancing the mental and emotional wounds to help open one up to more love.
  • Balances the bodies energies.
  • Adapts to your individual needs.
  • Promotes pain relief of physical (migraines, arthritis, menstrual or sciatica) or emotional (such as grieving).
  • Eases tension, stress and relaxes muscles.
  • Enhances natural healing and help trigger the body’s natural healing system by enhancing one’s immune system and can help speed up the healing process of a long illness and can reduce the effects of medical treatments (such as Chemotherapy).

Who can benefit from Reiki

Anyone: Adults, youth, babies, maturing individuals, pets and any animal (animals love Reiki).

How can I receive Reiki? 

In a typical treatment, a Reiki Master will have the client lay on a massage table and the client remains fully clothed.  One may sit or even stand to receive treatment.  The Reiki Master will place their hands in positions that may touch or be near the client’s body.  This is intuitively and individually based per each client’s needs; the treatment may last 30-60 mins.

What is long distance Reiki

A Reiki Master will have the ability to practice long distance Reiki.  It does not matter where in the world you are, as a skilled Master will allocate the Reiki to where you are.

What to expect after a Reiki Session: 

Be sure to drink lots of water the week following a Reiki session, this will help ease the releasing. Please be aware that you may get a little emotional or even have some physical releasing (mucus, coughing and even eliminating in the bathroom) as the toxins are released. Enjoy a nice hot Celtic sea salt bath with Sage or imagine a white light shower.  Be sure to ask Archangel Michael and/ or Archangel Raphael to request in releasing this from your aura and washing it down the drain.

Stuck in the Muck

By Natasha Botkin

Natasha Publicity Photo 300 bI was going through one heck of a time, feeling confused and a bit lost.  When it seemed that I just might be stuck.  In fact, it seemed as if I was not moving forward nor backward, no matter what direction I attempted.

If you can imagine, Pigpen, from Charlie Brown- the dirt follows him whereever he goes. 

“I have had enough!” echoed from every crevice of my physical form.   

Thus the wisdom surging forward, and my higher self showing me simple techniques that could help move the energy. 

This is the topic for this Podcast Interview with a fellow collaborative author Wisdom of Midlife Women 2 and warrioress, Peggy Nolan.

Full Wolf Moon

by Natasha Botkin 

 

 

By the light of the moon Full Wolf Moon

the full moon wolf howls. 

A spectator to some, 

the truth to others. 

Go dear ones and 

bask in the light 

of the full wolf moon. 

 

The January Full Moon is known as the Full Wolf Moon, and in some Native American cultures, it is called the snow moon, to other Native tribes this occurs in February.

 Why is it called this? 

In Native American and early Colonial times, the Full Moon for January was called the Full Wolf Moon. It appeared when wolves howled in hunger outside the villages as the snow piled high.  The cold bareness of the land, created an echo, a call to the land, Mother Gaia, for food.

  Why a wolf? 

In symbolism and the totem,  the wolf is known for a strong connection into higher intuition. If you have ever heard of the idiom “wolf’s instict;” this is true as they have a way of knowing just when to appear.   A wolf is an excellent communicator with other wolves, the spiritual world and Luna (moon). As the wolf appears to you, what does your instict say or react to, what you are trying to say, but are not be hearing. Another moment they are known for is “sinking your teeth into,” but rather, thinking in a scary manner, look at it as what is the wolf trying to show you, communicate to your tru heart.

January Full Moon: 

Let’s look at the energies that have been cycling for us.  This full moon is January 23, 2016 @ 05:46 pm PST.  This is at the end of Mercury Retrograde.  Mercury Retrograde is a time of reflection, it is a time to slow down, unwind and truly see what no longer serves you.  The bareness of the winter land, Merucry and the Full Wolf Moon can help you release that which no longer serves you.

Do not look at this as death, rather look at this as stillness. The stillness that you need to release, so that you may re-birth into a renewal of your heart and soul. A moment to go deep within, and sit with what you heart truly needs, not what the etheric ego desires.  As the wolf comes, sit with thee, request for the energies of the wolf to help you transfer what you need to Luna, so she may let it go.

Howls of the Wolf Removal of Old Baggage: 

  • Light a candle, and gaze into the flame. 
  •  Ask what do I need to release, stop listen and allow the stillness  unfolding to 
  • the beating heart.  
  • The heart whispers, allow this to deepen. Allow your heart to speak its truth. 
  •  Write down what comes, light this over your flame, and let it go releasing-to the wolf, who’s
  • howling, 
  • voicing echos will carry to Luna.  
  • Luna will release this from you. 
  • Take 3 deep breathes in. 
  • Rest.

 

Go Dear Ones, healing your heart by the light of the moon using an eternal flame.  Happy, Howling Full Wolf Moon and Happy Releasing, each and every Dear Heart. May you be peace and love to your heart.

Much Love, Much Light and Magical Blessings, 

Natasha 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Voice of Authenticity

By Natasha Botkin 

Have you heard the whispers in the air, the lull of the moon, the dance of the waves…

One thing is for sure, 2016 will not allow you to hide, procrastinate and ignore.  The energy vibes are calling, whispering, saying your truth and the more that you try to ignore or hide, the stronger the vibes may become.  

It is like 2016 is standing up and saying enough, enough with your shenanghans.  I am here in the now; now follow me.  

The old adage of fake it until you make it, no longer rings true.  The toll of the bell, rings of love, of truth, of light.  

Now, this is not to say, that there will be those, who insist on “their way” with the idea of “free will.”  I am here to gently emphasize that this is a 9 year in numerology, and the karmic energies are here to remind you; good or bad, but karma would like your attention and this will not sulk away, as it would in the past.  

Here are a few ways to show up in an authentic manner, which can calm the storm of the lesson if you allow. 

Ask yourself are you authentically expressing:

  1. A feeling 
  2. An emotion (allowing yourself to feel this emotion)   Do not ignore it, this will tighten its grip- Breathe in and out as the emotion happens.
  3. A thought
  4. Is this a feeling, emotion or thought? 
  5. Where did the feeling, emotion or thought originate from? Pay careful attention to the signs that your emotional body is sending to your etheric body (i.e.  is your chest tight- then breath into your heart center and allow the emotion to flow in and out of you-almost like an ocean wave). 
  6. Is this actually a belief?  What is the illusion that you are trying to convince yourself as your truth?

The old adage of fake it til your make it, is an old adage, pattern and belief; the awakened conscious is no longer tolerant of these shenanghans.  And like an alligator these are bubbling up to the surface.  

                                                          

 “Toil, toil, toil and trouble….” bubble, bubble bubble.

Place those woes in a pink bubble.  Take a deep breath, breath the woe into the pink bubble and gentle blow this away.  As the pink bubble leaves you, you may ask an angel to take it from you and/or request for them to help you pop it.    pink bubble

Awwww, this feels so much lighter, so much better.

May you feel light and love.

 

Much Love, Much Light and Magical Blessings,

Nobodys’ Thinking About You

By Natasha Botkin 

wpid-wp-1434036947750.jpeg

A-ha, hopefully the title caught your eye.  No, this is not a put down about you or how much you are unloved.  Rather this is a moment of “nobody was ever thinking about you, anyhow.” – Elizabeth Gilbert quote of an unknown individual.  

Where did this stem from? The other day while I am walking along, my higher self and I are internally conversing, when I hear, “Goodness, just how old are you?” A lady had chosen in this moment, to decipher my wardrobe, but that is hindsight to her next comment, “I love when a woman has balls!”  

My response was, “Okay, you have my attention, what gives?” Upon which she repsonds, You are fearless to walk along here dressed in this manner-everyone else is dressed in workout gear.” I look at my clothing, I have on a simple red dress, gray tights, black knee high boots and my favorite brown cloak; in fact I look down right cute.  Or maybe that is what she was referring, too.  We continue to converse about how so many people are afraid to just be themselves; they worry so much about what others may say or do.  So, I ask, “Why did you ask my age?”  She responds with, “Darling, you have an air of an old soul, and yet I feel a heart of a child, you must really confuse people.”  I chuckle, “You have no idea!” 

We parted from our conversation, and my higher self chimes in, “See sweet girl, you know what you must do- now go forth with the fearlessness that you hold within.” 

I leave you with, be you: Dance as if no one is watching, jump in those puddles, have fun; because in truth “nobody was thinking about you.” 

Much Love, Much Light and Magical Blessings, 

Natasha
