Have you ever had a passion, but kind of lost sight of it because of life getting in the way?  You get so busy with the business of living, that you kind of forget all about that passion.  Days, weeks, months, and maybe even years can go by.

My Reiki gets like that sometimes.  I occasionally go for long periods of time without using Reiki.  Then something happens that brings me back to it.  I remember how much I LOVE it.

I hadn't been practicing my Reiki for quite awhile when my two youngest grandchildren stayed over night.  My grandson asked if I could do Reiki on him.  He said we hadn't done it in a long time...and he was right.  Of course, my granddaughter wanted Reiki too.  Working with my grandchildren reminded me how much i love helping people with Reiki.  That opened the floodgates.

The next day the family was over to celebrate Father's Day.  My oldest grandson's girlfriend came over with her sister who was visiting from out of town.  Her sister is a Reiki II practitioner.  We enjoyed talking about our experiences with Reiki.  A family member wasn't feeling well.  She was having sinus issues.  The sister and I enjoyed working together on this family member and helped her to feel better.

The next thing that happened was that I got an unexpected email asking me to give mini Reiki treatments at a local senior center for their members.  I have done this in the past, but it's been quite awhile since they've asked me to do it.  I was pleasantly surprised by the email.

Finally, I happened to run into an old friend this past weekend.  We got to talking and of course Reiki came up.  She knew about Reiki and was very interested in it.  We're going to set up an appointment.

I love the synchronicity of it all.  I love how the Universe puts opportunities in your path to help you remember your passions.  Once you remember, the Universe helps to feed and expand that passion.

The same holds true for everyone.  Whatever you focus on will be multiplied....positive or negative.    If you complain about everything, you'll get more things to complain about.  If you're grateful for the good things in your life, you'll receive more for which to be grateful.  Pay attention and observe how this works, then pull into your life what you wish to experience.  The choice is yours.

A Sunset's Promise

Many times this spring, we've had overcast days.  Sometimes they would be accompanied by rain, sometimes it was just overcast.  But what these days had in common was that just before sunset, it would clear up over the lake and there would be this incredibly beautiful sunset.  It was such a gift after what most would call a dismal day.

Today was one of those days.  It was cold for this time of year and it was overcast.  It even rained quite a bit during the day.  But around 8:30 PM, it cleared up over the lake.  There was the most gorgeous sunset!  I couldn't take my eyes off of it until the last shred of color was overtaken by nightfall.

As I was watching this amazing show, a thought occurred to me.  Maybe these wonderful sunsets after an overcast, dismal day are nature's way of giving us hope.  Maybe it's nature's way of saying, "Listen, I know that things aren't always the way you want them to be.  I know that sometimes things can seem dark, hopeless.  But if you can just have patience, if you can just hang in there, I promise that the sun will shine again." 

My wish is that we could all see and internalize nature's message.  Hang in there.  Things  will get better. Think of that every time you see a sunset.  It's a sunset's promise.

Love,  Paula

Your Journey

In last week's blog I talked about the Labyrinth.  I was told that my journey was mine and mine alone.  It occurs to me that that is true for everyone.

I happen to be very fortunate.  I have so many people in my life - family and friends - that love and support me.  They don't always understand me, but they love and support me.  Even with all that love and support, I'm on my own journey.  No one can do it for me or with me.  It's mine.

The same holds true for everyone.  It doesn't matter if you have tons of love and support like me, or if you're pretty much alone.  Our journeys are our own.  We may have similar journeys.  Our journey's may even intersect with each others.  But no two people have the exact same journey.

My advice to you is to not worry about what other people do or say.  Follow your heart.  Follow your passion.  Follow your dreams.  Be brave, be bold and follow your journey.

Love,  Paula
