Shhhh… IT’S A SECRET

There are these little miracles we enact everyday without seeming to notice them and then there are their secrets…
When we reach out our hands to someone in an affectionate hug, when we clasp them in a welcome greeting, when we console with a back rub, when we hold ourselves in grief, when we sleep with our head upon a chest - feet entwined, when we respond in kind to our parents’ embrace, when we kiss.

Oh No, My Heart Chakra’s Blocked!

It happened again. We’re sitting in the Reiki class discussing Reiki treatments and a student pipes up to say, “I don’t know if I can do this, my heart chakra’s blocked”.
The responses in the room are fairly standard. Many of the students make small, sad “oh” sounds. Well, I agree, it certainly sounds awful. Almost like a chronic medical condition.
