Tao Play

 

When they come to the temple,

they are but broken warriors,

seeking redemption

in Tao play.

 

They enter the temple gates

out of the shadows of their lives

in the light of the sun

rising on the horizon.

 

They are vessels receiving and

giving sustenance from the ball of life that

lifts them out of their birth place and

roots them to solid ground.

 

Taking their positions,

they center in Wuji,

spread and cool the white crane’s wings, and

grasp the sparrow’s tail.

 

They take to quarrels

with monkeys and prevail,

warding off their fears and sending them

flying with swords and fans.

 

They find the balance

in all Forms, which,

when done to perfection,

will make them immortal.

My Weebly Reiki, Tai Chi Chuan, Qigong, and Intuitive Listening Web Store

Friends,

If you need Tai Chi Chuan lessons, Qigong lessons, Reiki sessions, Reiki training, or Intuitive Listening, please check out my services on Weebly!

I am a Usui Reiki Master/ Teacher and a Karuna Reiki practitioner.  Reiki is a hands-on healing modality which originated in Japan. Much like acupuncture and massage, Reiki is a great complement to medical care. The universal life force energy that is channeled for healing is abundant, ancient, and omnipresent (available to everyone). It is unconditional love. Love is the best chemo!

My Reiki clients report stress reduction, relaxation, and a greater sense of wellness after each session. These sessions balance the flow of energy throughout the subtle energy system and organs, promoting healing.

You can receive Reiki in person or remotely. We are all connected, so distance healing is just as powerful as that received in person. Regardless of where Reiki is sent, I am always humbled by its gifts and miracles.

Intuitive Listening is a comforting service as I listen with compassion along with a card reading and/or Reiki treatment. These sessions have opened people up to new insights related to life issues and life purpose.

The Reiki training is thorough and provides practice and in some items I also provide tutorials. There are three levels of Reiki. Level 1 is an introduction with a focus on self-healing and treating loved ones, Level 2 is the practitioner level, and Level 3 is the Master level. Certificates of completion are presented after each level of training.

I was led to try a Reiki session when I had two cancer scares. The session was so profound that I felt it was a calling. Thus, I sought training.  My training and experience with Reiki has had a profound effect on me physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally. I even feel healthier on the cellular level.

I find that my healing from anxiety and depression has been an ongoing and steady process mainly because I have chosen to integrate the universal life force energies into my being. By allowing, relaxing, and trusting this flow of healing energy, you too can recover from illness and stress.

I’m at the point now where I feel my ancestral trauma is being released and transmuted to the light, and I am gaining clarity on my life purpose just as you can. Another effect for me was heightened psychic awareness. I think we are all psychic, but we repress those senses. Reiki helps to release stagnant energy, which can then enhance our senses. Most importantly, however, my experience with Reiki has opened my heart.

Reiki energy raises our vibrations, which in turn helps us to live in the light and ward off the dark forces that attach to us. Like attracts like, so if we intend to resonate with our higher self and spirit guides, we can repel negativity. Healing is a process of ascension as we embrace the healing and unconditional love of the Reiki energy.

The Reiki Principles in the featured image teach that wellness involves letting go of negative emotions, such as anger and worry, and embracing kindness, gratitude, and integrity. What a beautiful world we could have it we could heal from post traumatic stress, depression, and poor health. What a beautiful world we could have if we could forgive ourselves and others, and learn to love ourselves and others unconditionally. Healing is a deep study of the soul. It is holy work, not a quick fix.

Intuitive Listening is a comforting service as I listen with compassion along with a card reading and/or Reiki treatment. These sessions have opened people up to new insights related to life issues and life purpose.

For these reasons, Reiki and Intuitive Listening form an excellent complement to medical care. In fact, more hospitals are implementing Reiki sessions for patients and staff.

The beginning private Tai Chi Chuan and Qigong lessons will provide many health benefits, such as improved balance, bone density, and circulation. Tai Chi Chuan massages all the organs with gentle movements. Qigong means “breathing”. Improved breathing helps deliver oxygen to all parts of the body, improving health even at the cellular level.

I have been studying and practicing Tai Chi Chuan and Qigong since 2006. I want to focus on beginners by teaching proper posture, stance, and form. I learned the 8 Forms in China but mainly I have studied under various well qualified teachers in Columbia, Missouri. I know the Yang style 8 Forms, 16 Forms, and 24 Forms. I’ve studied done Chen forms, and I hope to someday teach the Sun Lu Tang Tai Chi Forms. I’ve also learned fan and sword forms. Currently I am also teaching Qigong to grade school children.

Some of my services offer intuitive and compassionate listening. I have had crisis resolution and hotline training with a local Rape Crisis Center, I have been trained as a Family to Family Teacher for the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill. In the class I taught, families of the mentally ill were trained on how to cope with their loved one’s mental illness. And I have had training as a hospice volunteer. However, I am neither a doctor nor a psychiatrist, so during sessions and classes, I do not make diagnoses or prescribe medications.
