I know I have recently succumbed to empathy burnout, and am pulling in to recover and prepare for the next round of going out into the world to help. I liked this article and it's video, so I am sharing with you all. https://www.mindful.org/care-deeply-without-burning-out
"Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work. " Thomas A. Edison I have found this to be profoundly true. Often in my various jobs, people have asked me how I managed to accomplish one thing or the other, while telling me how easy it must be …
I could ramble on but nothing I could say will say it better than this man has written it – enjoy:
I have been thinking a lot about happiness of late, partially because so many people seem unhappy. I think that was my first epiphany upon entering the world of Social Media; people are unhappy and there are a lot of them. Now don’t get me wrong, we all know some people who wouldn’t be happy, were they not unhappy but I am not talking about them. We will just let them be. I am also not thinking theologically here (i.e. juxtaposing happiness and joy), today I am going to err on the practical and pragmatic side of things. With that being said, let’s get going.

Being able to stop and meditate can mean the difference between being stressed to the max and being relaxed and present.

It has been a crazy busy May - with transitioning my Pet Services clients to their primary caregivers, who are embarking on their own businesses now; getting paperwork in order to retire the business; assisting a couple of other friends with their projects - one book (prepping, interviews, press pack etc) and one "we aren't …

Yes, I have chosen to try to do two separate but focused types of Reiki practices – one for those who are far away and do not have access to Reiki near them (www.far-reiki.com); and one for those who are dying (www.ukiyoreiki.com). I am looking forward to practicing, and will be “open for business” in June. 🙂
Dealing with a recent health issue for myself, brought to mind this question I have heard a few times from skeptics: If Reiki works, why do Reiki practitioners ever get sick? I guess, at first glance, it seems like a reasonable question. But I’d like to meet it with a few of my own:
- Why do people committed to aerobic exercise, ever have heart attacks?
- Why do psychiatrists ever have any form of mental or emotional imbalance?
- Why do the cars of good mechanics, sometimes break down?
- Why do people who brush their teeth, occasionally get cavities?
- Why do black belts sometimes get beaten up?
- Why is it that, even when you make all the right choices and do all the right things, you may still fail to achieve your goals?

After my Reiki level 2 atunement - this was how I felt - light and energized. So I made this.
I've been a second level Reiki practitioner for a week and it has been a busy week. I have been working on my business plan, because I know what I want to do with my new skills. I have a dual focus - I want to provide remote treatments for people or animals who want …
