What do you bring to bed?

 First I want to say that the art on this page was done by one of my favorite artists, her name is Julia Watkins and she does incredibly beautiful work!

The great thing about her work is that she incorporates the movement of energy around her subjects and allows us to see what we are mostly unable to see with the naked eye, no pun intended.
The artwork below here really shows how the energetic fields of ourselves and our lovers become
intertwined and surround and move through us together.
Imagine then how important it is to keep your personal energy field as pristine as possible.
In our field of energy all things about us exist.
How we think about ourselves, our issues, our hopes and fears,
our joys and our angers.
If we judge, love, tolerate, wonder, or obsess about our partner, it 
is absolutely right there in our energy field.
For that matter anything that affects us lives within this subtle energy field and it can pollute
not only our personal energy field but also that of our partner.

The way to work with this is to have a daily practice that keeps you as energetically
healthy as possible.
That means eating foods that are healthy and life affirming like fruits and vegetables.
This also means not judging ourselves for what we eat,
or if we make a mistake in healthy choices.
It means doing your personal work and not being lazy.
It is far to easy to put off until tomorrow what we can do today.  
If depression, sadness, pain, fatigue, and bad attitude plague you
it is probably time to get real about your energy and your life style.
If you care for your partner and your relationship
this is just as necessary as brushing your teeth or changing the oil in your car.

The drawing below is just another example of how our energy fields affect one another.
Becoming physically intimate is an important step in a relationship and deserves just as much fore thought and time as deciding what new television or car to buy.

Being intimate with someone that you love is a gift, it is a mixing of your energy and their energy.
If we bring our bad day, argument with a boss, misunderstanding of a friend, or stress of
our family into this Holy and intimate experience we are in essence dumping our garbage in our partners energy field.

Before you argue with me just think back to the last time things were difficult and you chose to make love to your partner... you probably felt great, nice and relaxed... maybe even drifted off to sleep.
And most likely your partner was not thrilled with the experience, may have felt poorly, and most possibly could not easily fall asleep, and even more sad; it might be that your partner walked away
with the feeling that something was wrong, but just could not put their finger on it.

It is our responsibility as sexual beings to put our partners before us and do our best to make sure that we are bringing loving, healthy, juicy thoughts and energy to them before we make love to them.
Face it,
We have enough drama and pain in the world,
why bring it home to the people we love the most?
Do your Reiki,
And loving from a healthy persepctive...

I'm sure that your partner will notice!

Reiki reminding me of my good!

Off and on this week I have found myself day dreaming about the west coast where I grew up and lived over half of my life, so far.

I found some sadness as I miss being in the forests with the trees, the coolness of the air, 
the grayness of the days
the majesty of my favorite mountain Mt Rainier.
The photo above is whales head beach in Oregon... 
I used to enjoy time there as often as I could.

I am such a different person now than I was then.
My children all grown up and moving
along nicely in their lives, beginning their adventures on their own.
I have become more sure of myself and more
at ease with who I have become...

And I realize that if I allow myself to stay in reverie about that past life of mine; I could
spiral into what if's and what could have beens,
which in no way serves my light and life in this
now, so I gently remind myself that today is the day that is most important and
I endeavor to return to my center.

I have had the incredible opportunity today to include a yoga practice 
with an online church service that gives me a great deal of peace and
shores up my inner strength and being-ness.
As I sat in meditation, people that I love came to me,
and I sent joyful Reiki to them...
not to heal them from their lives, or to take away
their pain, or interfere in some way with a judgement about how and what they need...
It was a simple offering of my love laced with Reiki energy for their good,
and in truth only they will know how that
will unfold.

I am ever humbled by the lessons that Reiki brings to my feet.
Reiki reminds me of presence
Reiki reminds me of allowing the flow of all things
Reiki reminds me of comfort
Reiki reminds me of peace
Reiki reminds me of my particular place in our world
And most of all

Reiki teaches me the incredible truth that my past present and future are one, 
I have not lost loves or family members,
I am always connected to my good 
and I am always guided by a gentle and profound source
of light that eternally connects me to all that I love, have loved, or will love....
Knowing that means that I know the West coast is only a breath away
and I have lost nothing.
ALL is well!
