These are the 5 Reiki principles ingrained in the amazing healing technique, but they have become goals that I set for myself every morning.
Just for today, I will not be angry.
It’s not a matter of never getting angry, but rather, when anger creeps in try to deal with it accordingly and then let it go.
Just for today, I will not worry.
Again, there is no way to absolutely avoid worrying, but rather than worry about what happened before or what will happen next, be present and let the worry pass.
Be grateful for simple things and as well as the things in the larger scheme of life. Even difficult things can give way to things such as thanks, forgiveness, smiles, good words or gratitude — all things that worth being grateful for.
Believe in the work being done and do that work respectfully. Life should be lived honorably and with a head held high.
Bring loving-kindness into every personal encounter. Treat things as you would treat people, and as you would like to be treated in return.

I made it through January, I believe I wore high heels at least 6 out of the 7 days a week. It was great, until the snow started at the end of the month into February. Because of that I have adjusted this resolution, which I was telling myself was to wear high heels EVERYDAY, to attempt to wear high heels whenever possible and appropriate. It really is a great confidence boost and a great workout, especially downtown on those cobblestone streets! 2. Find a man who buys me flowers
Still working on it. Maybe I should hire some help! Accepting hydrangeas at all times! 3. Add to my collection of Buddhas
I haven’t added to my collection but I have a few Buddha’s that I am interested in purchasing including this Buddha candle and this adorable fuchsia Buddha pillow. 4. Concentrate, meditate, negotiate
A huge change has occurred in my life with the discovery of Reiki, the ancient Japanese spiritual healing method. It has renewed my faith that health and happiness is an active, hands-on, extreme sport, not a passive waiting game. I have been sharing Reiki with everyone who is interested and writing a lot about my experience both here on my blog and privately. I think the best lesson I have learned while meditating is the beauty of personal mantras. I share a few more common mantras every so often here and here, but I have come up with a few that really help me center myself when times are tough. I AM A STAR THAT SHINES GRACEFULLY. 5. Buy a proper vacuum
Done! I didn’t buy it per se, I got another hand-me-down, but much lighter, vacuum from my parents and it works great! In addition to regular vacuuming I also lint brush my new couch, which is white and collects a lot of hair and fuzz, on a weekly basis! 6. Floss
Still hate it, but doing it everyday and….yeah, it’s just flossing — nothing too fabulous to report here!

I received the miraculous gift of being trained and attuned to practice Reiki Healing yesterday and I am so incredibly humbled and grateful for the experience. The magnificent Lisa Levine trained a group of 5 of us and it was just an amazing day. Here are some highlights: 1. I can now properly describe what Reiki really is (which is a HUGE relief!) 2. I can now practice Reiki on myself and others 3. The universal life energy is forever sealed in me, I will be able to carry this life force, and share it for the rest of my life (and maybe lives to come!?) 4. Atole, the sweetest, Reiki attuned, dog in the whole world spent much of the day learning with us If you are interested in being a guinea pig in my first few weeks of practicing and playing with Reiki energy, please let me know.

It’s my birthday and I can’t sleep — story of my life! Call me crazy, but this seemed like the perfect time to do what I had to do — read my horoscope. The scary part? Some of it really resonates me and sounds like me, while some is complete hooey. Who cares though, this is what birthdays are about!HAPPY BIRTHDAY also goes out to my brother from another mother Jeff Hughes, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Patrick Dempsey, Orlando Bloom and Connie Lui‘s brother! Sun in Capricorn, Moon in Pisces Your astrological combination indicates a quiet, undemonstrative individual. You are retiring by nature and prefer domestic activities. A somewhat passive person, you require a stronger force or person to move you out of your state of psychological inertia. Much about you is concentrated and inner-directed. You seek integrity of self. You make a good friend and confidant, for you never reveal a secret that has been told to you. But you don’t allow friends and associates to penetrate beneath your outermost mask. You deal well with people in unfortunate positions, because they arouse the compassion inherent in your Moon influence. Under favorable circumstances, your psychic and mystic tendencies could be awakened. The key to a more harmonious existence lies in using your organizing ability to establish a more active life. You possess a high degree of innate ambition and perseverance. Read the rest of this entry »
