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.

***Please check with your Reiki Master credentials.

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.

Ode to the Stretch Mark

By Natasha Botkin 

heart spiral

Recently, I was having a conversation with a friend,  “How did you do this alone, how were you a mom to not one, but two autistic boys, all on your own?  I honor you.”

I have always felt blessed that the divine choose me to be their mom.  Through the good, the bad and the ugly times; raising two autistic boys on my own was not easy: there were many moments of tears, a mama grizzly bear ready to swipe anyone who would harm her cubs.  Then there is the laughter, the joy of raising, guiding, seeing their shining moments.

My unproud moment was the affects, and I offer a sincere apology to all women.  I am sorry that I have pointed, mawked, and been down right ashamed of my stretch marks, my beloved honoring me, saying , “You would be gorgeous in a bikini.” My response, “Oh yuck, with these?  Yeah, no!”

Today, something stopped me in my tracks, I was looking and sighing at “them.”  Then, I read somewhere: “There are some women who wish that they had stretch marks, and have not been given that oppotunity….”

I am truly sorry to the divine, to my beautiful self and to all women.  No matter how you became a mother, that does not matter, you are a mom and that is the most important aspect.  However, with that said, as a tribute to all women, I will wear these stretch marks with pride and honor for all women, moms.

My request, is that you too, join in and honor all women and shine your stretch marks as the beauty that you truly are!!

How Do You Repsond?

By Natasha Botkin 

Life can create choppy waves, the true question is how do you respond.

My dog and I were enjoying a beautiful, sunny day at the beach.  The waves pushing her around, but as a typical Lab, she was relentless on, “Please, oh please throw me the stick.  I can do this Mom.”  Me completely aware of her swimming abilities.

A bitter lady nearby said, “You are a cruel pet owner, she’s surely to drown.”

Now this lady, has never seen us, does not know us and has no clue to us.  This did not deter me from enjoying my moment at the beach.  My sweet dog happily, jumping in the waves, fetching her stick and both of us having an all around good time.

At one moment, a wave came up and nearly toppled her, but she held her ground and frolicked out to sea.  It was at this moment, my higher self said, “Well how do you respond?”  

Brilliant question from a wise soul!   So I ask you the same requited question.  How do you respond?  Do you allow the waves to toppled you over or beat against you, feeling as if you are drowning or less than there of.  Or do you reach deep within and allow the tranquility of peace to wash all over you, in you and around you as life creates those tough wavy moments.

As this woman, made her statement, I did not “feel” anything, rather I knew this was not about me, but her.  My choice at that particular moment to turn inward, inhaling the calm, serene blue skies inward, pausing for a moment and then breathing out a pink bubble and blowing this to the wind and sea.

May you too have the ability to breathe in the peace and breathe out a pink bubble  blowing “this” away from you.

A New Approach to Mercury Retrograde

by Natasha Botkin 

Poor Mercury what did this dear planet ever do to humans.  Why is this planet getting so much flack.  This planet represents clear thinking, communication, truth and travel.  During a retrograde, it appears that Mercury is spinning backwards.

Some may say that this causes electronics to go haywire.  Some may agree that communication is difficult.

This can be viewed from a negative propensity.  However, one can turn this around and view this as a truly a beautiful sacred gift.  It is a gift.

Mercury is presenting one with a way to honor themselves.  How better to honor one’s self with a gift of truthful communication.  A gift of communicating and traveling to be your true authentic self.  For too long humans have created a vortex of negativity about Mercury, and yet Mercury presents a great gift.  When one truly turns inward and communicates with their heart and soul (higher self), one is truly able to communicate avidly with another.  

Thus Mercury presents ever so often the opportunity to let go of the distractions, go deep inside and release that which no longer should be able to rest within one’s self.  Only then can you be the true you.  

Thank you Mercury for helping us to cycle back and reflect the lessons of our spiral.  By granting us the ability to let go of a the lesson.

May you be able to change the angle of the camera lens and receive this wonderous gift.

I’m Worth it! Your Worth It!

by Natasha Botkin 

Cat looking in mirror sees lion

Self-esteem can be defined by Webster’s dictionary as a noun self–es·teem \-ə-ˈstēm\ : a feeling of having respect for yourself and your abilities.

Self worth can be defined by Webster’s dictionary as noun \-ˈwərth\: a feeling that you are a good person who deserves to be treated with respect.

Some may say they are the same; some may same they differ from one another.  Instead of focusing on this, let’s focus on a key word; both of the definitions begin with the word feeling.

Let’s define feeling via Webster’s dictionary as noun feel·ing \ˈfē-liŋ\: an awareness by your body of something in it or on it: an emotional state or reaction.

Therefore, a feeling is an awareness by your body, a sense, a presence, a vibe.

I have known individuals who have loads of outward self-esteem, but deep down inside are screaming for self-worth. This is the body receiving divine knowledge that something is amiss.  Emotionailty is that force of a prideful ego dispersing lies.  Sorry, Charlie the Sunkist Tuna, ego lies, deceives and creates a falsehood that is not of divine truth.  

Breaking the belief and pattern that unfolds is as deep as the depth of where a tuna lives.  One needs to dive deep to unfold their truth.  The feelings that one just does not wish to feel.

In my collaboration with 30 other Authors “The Wisdom of Midlife Women 2,”  I share my story, “Feelings of Resilience.”  In fact what I am now bravely sharing is that this story was almost left tabled and not birthed.  When it showed, my ego wanted to scream and kick like a two-year old having a tantrum.  I had to step back and dive deep; when I emerged, my story was powerful, ready to be shared and shown to the those would enjoy this sharing.  WOMW2_CoverIMG 2

Easier said than done, right!  

I understand in ways that most may not realize.  Once upon a time, I wore a cloak of invisibility afraid to show the world my true abilities.  As a child I was ridiculed by friends and family.  Now, I value my divine gifts; this is their loss. and I am here to shine my love, light and strength.  Our powerful divine did not mistake my worth as others did.

The divine bequeathed me with an enormous amount of gifts.  One is being an Empath.  Before I dove deep for the story “Feelings of Resilience, I had this false sense that as an empath, I would take what others could not handle those energies/feelings left me tired and worn out.  I did not deserve this, this is not what this gift is about.  So, diving that I believed to be deep, gently guided this was not deep enough, oh jeeze; my Beloved’s voice and scuba diving knowledge of the human world, right by my side; “I am here ‘My Love.’  It’s okay, you’ll be okay.  There’s a storm brewing, you know what you must do, and even though I cannot be there with you, I am still here and will monitor from afar; you are not alone, you are never alone.”

So dive, I went, it is what I must do!  I dive, further and further and I rest swimming amongst creatures of the unknown.  I am ready to submerge, I know that spiritually my BeLoved will be there with the divine, angels, Mother Mary and Yesuah.  When I submerged they cradled me and helped me to better understand what just happened on the conscious level.

The story emerges, so does my worth in a way that is incredible, words cannot describe what is happening; it is a feeling, me taking back my life, my song, my dance. The greatest moment of clarity was visiting Ikea with a friend; she turns after we leave and says, what is different.  I smile as I know what happened.  One day I will share.

The greatest gift that the divine gave to me at that moment was the return of feeling.  Self worth tackling what once toppled me; now I walk amongst crowds and do not absorb their energies.  Rather, I honor and treasure myself to shine my divine light and divine love at full strength so that others may also feel this beautiful gift.  The other divine gift, the ability to do so without absorbing their “stuff.”  Me standing like a beacon of love and light shining for all to see and loving my worth to know that all is well- my power turned on, and I no longer need to “absorb” every little energy; these need a special location and I can deflect this to where it belongs; it does not belong to me as I am worth so much more and cherish myself by honoring my divine worth.  

May you too, honor and cherish all that you are! May you too, turn on your power! 

Much Love, Much Light, and Magical Blessings,

R-E-S-P-E-C-T, do you have it?

by Natasha Botkin

Respect can be defined as: “esteem for or a sense of the worth or excellence of a person, personal quality or ability, or something considered as a manifestationof a personal quality or ability.”

To me the first part is the super important “esteem for a sense of worth of a person.” 

One thing that the Blue Full Moon and the Lion’s Gate has rendered forth is respect; respect for all living creatures.  The death of Cecil and Jericho is just one of the many disrespectful elements that are being driven.  It is easy to point out the fault of another and render an opposition of decency.

Yet, how is this okay to not stand up for you.  Do you not deserve the same respect towards yourself and others.  You, do!  How often does your heart scream no, I cannot and your ego says, yes I would love to help…Then when you request assistance, the same is not rendered.  

With the Blue Full Moon, I reflected back on people in my life.  The sad truth is, I need to release and let go of those who do not balance me.  Do I let go of me as well.  Yes, yes and yes.

What does that mean?  

What piece, part of you, do you know needs to be released and stop an addictive pattern?  Addiction, I am not addicted; if you are doing something that you know is not in your best interest, dear one, this too is an addiction.  I can hear the egos spouting off!  She does not know.  Oh, but I do, once upon a time, my ego loved to spout off.  Now I allow,  it  the ability to flow like the ebb and flow of an ocean wave-in and then out, “it” is no more.  A nervous habit (addiction) I picked up was not voicing what I should, sit quiet or rather a family saying to me sit down and shut up.  So, I learned to pick at my cuticle until the point of bleeding, instead of saying what I wished to express.  Do I know this not for my best interest, yes.  Did I cease this, maybe; there are days when I am still working on it.

Do you feel balanced? respect-yourself walkaway

If you are in a relationship where you do not feel balanced.  Are you being respected?  Nope, sorry as tough as it is to admit, you are probably not being respected in the manner upon which you deserve.  Everyone deserves to be given respect towards themselves and receive respect from others.  This can be any realtionship intimate, friendship, and even work.  As tough as it is to admit it, admitting it helps cease the pattern.

How does one cease this pattern and/or belief? 

  • Stand up for yourself!  Now does this mean, that you have to scream, rant and throw a fit…well this is probably not a good idea.  This is not only disrespectful to you, but also to those who will not listen to your acting a fool (so to speak).  Even if this means standing in the mirror and practicing the word NO and mean it…do not listen to the ego voice in your heading edging god out and trying to drive your bus.  respect-yourself-and-others-will-respect-you
  • Practice positive affirmations.  Google a few, place them where you can see them, on your mirror, your cell phone.  Sit back and watch how this will begin to affect you.
  • Meditate.  Meditation is a way to calm the storm.  If you find yourself anxious and in a situation that another is not respecting you, take a few deep breaths and center yourself.
  • Repeat a mantra or a healing sound. I adore the sound AH; this represents the heart chakra and reminds me that it is all about heart and love.  I love me;therefore I deserve to be respected by me and others. AHhhhh
  • Go for a walk.  Walking is a way to clear the mind.  This can even be a stroll, a power walk, hike, whatever you need.
  • Yoga.  Now this is not the time to worry about what you look like, whether you need a pedicure or that everyone has these hot yoga bodies.  It is me time and dear one it is all about you!  As I recovered from cancer, I was introduced to chair yoga, it was all I could do at the time.  There is no “wrong” way for what you need.

These are just a few moments for respect to show or help you have it show up in your life.  May you have the respect that you deserve from yourself and others.

Much Love, Much Light and Magical Blessings,

Natasha
