Picture this: a cottage on a cliff, decks with 180° views of the Pacific Ocean, warm sunshine, and a constant salty sea breeze. I may have found the perfect setting for deep and transformative meditation. The shelter of the historic wooden cottage provided a safe space to journey inward, while the natural landscape just outside the door inspired change and movement.
We booked our weeklong “staycation” 6 months ago for these coveted cottages. Something like 30,000 people log-on the first day of every month to book these beauties, so Joshua and I sat with our respective computers, ready to pounce at 8am. We got the exact cottage and the exact dates we wanted on our first try! Thank you, Universe!
Upon arrival, I was instantly inspired to write. I have been feeling the pull to work on my Reiki teaching manual for the last couple of weeks, and the cottage felt like the perfect place to dive in. So, I found a cozy spot on the deck, closed my eyes, and guided myself inward. My intention for this meditation was to be a clear and perfect channel for Reiki through my writing. And as some of you know, sometimes when we go into meditation, or into our Reiki sessions with a particular intention, the Universe can guide us elsewhere. I was shown another way that I can be of service.
I have been hearing a lot of hype about the new social sharing platform Periscope, an app that allows you to broadcast live wherever you are. I have been wanting to use this medium, but was not clear on how I could bring value to the community, and so I received exactly what I can do to be of service: daily affirmations in amazing locations! It combines my desire to contribute positive energy to my community and my passion for travel. And then, there was my fear of the video camera…
Now that I had received clarity on what I can contribute to the Periscope community, and I was traveling, it was a perfect opportunity for me to conquer this fear. For the next two days after receiving this “download,” I meditated and did Reiki on myself to continue to heal my fear of being seen on camera and judged by the world. I asked the Reiki energy to cleanse my Throat Chakra so that my words and intentions would be conveyed clearly and effortlessly. I asked the energy to empower my Solar Plexus Chakra so that I could feel strong and confident about what I have to share. And so it was, and so it is!
There is something happening in the Universe at this time. You do not have to be traveling to beach side locations to feel it! I am seeing big shifts occur, not just in myself, but in many of my clients as well. I invite you to open yourself up to this powerful energy, and see how your life begins to unfold in beautiful and rewarding ways.
