Gentle Woman Reiki

Today’s post is a repost of a blog I wrote a couple of years ago. Today, I continue this practice and continue to give Reiki treatments to those who desire them and Reiki attunements to those who wish to add Reiki practice and healing to their lives.

An ongoing update of the blessings of Reiki in my own family life. Many, with medical comments of the belief that Reiki is, in part, and sometimes wholly attributed to the healings experienced. I always treat Tom and he has recovered remarkedly from back pain over the past two years. He had a spinal fusion surgery and a fast recovery as he rehabbed with no further problems and the ability to walk distances with no pain. The previous ten years had been agony.

His skin cancers, especially around his face and scalp, have continued to be challenging, but right along with frequent Reiki treatments, he found excellent care at University of Michigan Cancer Clinic. This past year, he’s had over a half-dozen MOHS surgical procedures and the main doctor on the case said to us, “You are a good healer, in fact, you are the best healer I’ve seen with the amount of recovery you had to do.”  He definitely acknowledged Tom’s role in choosing healthy recovery and encouraged us to  continue the “Raykee” or whatever it was he was doing!



Her ways are ways of gentleness and all her paths are peace.”

As a Usui Reiki Master, I give and teach a natural healing method you can do for yourself anytime, anywhere. It comes from the Japanese spiritual and holistic healing tradition and has been practiced in Japan and the United States and around the world since the early 1900s.  The tradition, for a long time, was passed on to another verbally and Reiki practitioners receive “attunements” into Level I, II, or Reiki Master & Master Teacher from another Master who comes from the line of Mikeo Usui, the founder of the healing practice.

One can learn much today from books and the internet about Reiki, but the passing on of the Reiki Universal Life Force powers of healing comes from the hand of another Reiki Master.

Beside the universal desire for love, the two other things I’ve wanted in life were good health and personal, all-abiding peace within. In my search for these, I walked many paths, dipped into many wells of knowledge and wisdom and I’ve had a wide variety of experiences that brought either suffering or healing.

And I guess I would add balance to my life-long “wanted” list for happiness. This explains the draw of Reiki into my life. If Reiki is about one thing- it is most certainly about balancing the body/mind/spirit for the highest good. That includes balancing your physiology and this impacts how you experience your life positively.

When I give a Reiki treatment to a person (hands above or gently on a fully-clothed person), two experiences are common and shared by anyone I treat.  First, they experience an intense heat penetrating where ever my hands are placed above or on them; second, they go into a deep relaxation — deeper than shivasana, experienced at the end of a yoga session.

As a Reiki practitioner, I am doing nothing but acting as a vessel for the Universal Life Force to do its healing of the person on whatever level they need it; spiritual, emotional, physical. The person in deep relaxation is actually drawing the Reiki healing power into their being, I am not “sending” it.

When, as a Reiki Master, I give a Level I attunement, to another person, they now have the Reiki Power, to self-treat or treat others in their presence; Level II, is a higher attunement for Distance Healing and like “Prayer Sent” the energy of Reiki can be sent out over the world for the healing of persons or the planet. A person requesting Master Attunement experiences Reiki as a Calling, and wants to bring more Reiki into the world throught treatments and attuning new practitioners.

Like the popular phrase in the Star War Series, “The Force is with you,” you can be sure It truly is — Reiki just plugs it in and lights it up!

Reiki has gone to bat for me in the healing of emotional disturbance, soulful direction and on the physical plane where you can see it: heart surgery and not only the healing but the disappearance of a brain tumor without surgery and about 1/4 of the drugs they originally ordered.

Cats love Reiki! I’ve had them dash out from hiding and come lay under my Reiki table when I am giving another person a treatment. They stretch out long and expose their belly (the cats). If I put my Reiki hands on their furry belly, I’m afraid they are going to break their purring machine!

Reiki helps me stay rooted just in today. It reminds me by its principles to strive for and surrender to kindness and honesty, to let go of stress and worry, and to be mindful of my blessings.

When I am out of balance and not able to relax or respond to others in kindness, I suffer. I don’t like to suffer. When I include a self-treatment of Reiki for myself in my morning spiritual practice, my day goes better me and for others I come in contact with.

Reiki is one of the wondrous practices that came to me as one of the results of my search for good health, happiness and a support of my spirituality. Reiki is here to be shared.

This happened in the early morning hours of Friday, Feb. 22, 2013

“I have something to tell you, stay there a minute.” This is what Tom said to me this morning when he got up. I was sitting in my “quiet chair” with early morning prayer and meditation.  I stayed where I was.

He returned and sat down in his lounger chair and told me the following:

Last night I got up around 2:00 o’clock AM. As I turned to come around the bed to head into the bathroom, I noticed a bright light near the door of the bedroom. I turned to look at it and I saw a white form just leaving the room. I only saw the back of her. My first thought was, angel.

I walked to the doorway and looked down the hallway that opens to the kitchen area. I saw two of these white forms standing and conversing with one another. They had white/tannish flowing garments. I could not see where they ended at the floor.  I watched them. I could not hear them. I felt very peaceful.

I had to go to the bathroom so I did and when I returned, they were not there. I still felt the peace and returned to bed and went back to sleep.”

Tom is healing from the first of three scheduled skin cancer surgeries. I had given him Reiki  healing/love energies as he fell asleep last night. The heat coming from his body was quite intense as I held my hands softly above his head and drew the Reiki healing symbols onto him. He fell asleep quite easily and was not in pain.

My guidance tells me Tom saw his healers. He said he knew them to be feminine, but doesn’t know how he knew. He has Archangel Raphael, the healing angel Icon above his workspace since his back surgery a couple years ago, when the green Raphael Energy flooded him with an instant turn-around from a crisis situation in the hospital.

So I have been conversing with my angel guides on a regular basis now for a couple of years. I write what I hear as my guidance in my journals. I sense their loving and guiding presence around and within me. And when I say “they” and “their” I mean only ONE — for that is all there is,  ONE.   In fact, the name I’ve been given to converse with is…..WHO —  Whole and Holy One.

This year, I have opened to not only hearing and writing and sensing my guide, but I have told my guide I Am ready to see it.

And WHO sees his guide(s)? Tom, of course. He has that type of accepting spirit. I read, and meditate and think, and “do”,  all of which has some merit. But I know that I need more of a “Mary” consciousness than a  busy “Martha” (but bless her abundantly for I love her biblical activity and understand where she’s coming from). At least my hallway was neat for the angels to converse in!

Then I remember an angel correspondence I wrote down and posted in Napkinwriter and went back to look for it. This was posted one and one-half years before last night’s experience.

I am glad with joy! In the year of 2013- My Intention Mandala Year of Joy and Fun!

Angels in a Doorway

A Message from the Angels

By Susan H. Hajec

Dedicated to Margo & Janet

In an open doorway, there is a space.
It is the space between
where you are
and where
you are going.

Pay attention to what comes to you
when you open this door
with the space between
and your future.

We are in that space
as your guides
and as your direction.
We are your angels.

So there is no need to fear
when you make your choices
from the love and light
that are in this doorway.

We are willing to pull you
or push you through the appearance
of obstacles or a harsh wind.

In this doorway you can create
a new now
filled with what is attracting you.
It takes only your decision.

There is no need
to hurry, dear one,
no need to rush.

Just be in the quiet
in the space
in the open door

between you
and your future.
We are here!
And in a millisecond
of the time it takes you to decide,
we will make it happen!

Again, do not be afraid.
It feels like you are lost
but you are not.
You are just in the space

in the open door
immersed in possibility and potential.

When what you have enjoyed
has come to an end,
it is your turn

to choose once again
what comes next
in the open door
where you can create
and just be.

What to Do For a “Lighter You”

October 14, 2010http://worldhealingnetwork.wordpress.com/2010/10/14/lighteryou/?blogsub=confirming#blog_subscription-2
Cindi Oriente – World Healing Network
Napkinreaders, enjoy this writing created by Cindi at the World Healing Network. I just finished a global time of praying for and giving Reiki worldwide to those on their healing list and others who I know to have healing needs.
The following writing sums up a guaranteed peaceful way to be in our world and as I practice these things, I get deeper and deeper into a pool of peace, which is more and more often not able to be disturbed by circumstances in my own or others’ lives.

In these times of great change and accelerated energy there are many steps you can take and ideas you can embrace that will help you not only cope, but thrive. This requires that you release outdated, fear-based thoughts, beliefs and emotions to make way for a new, higher-frequency, love-based reality.

Here are ten things you can do to become a “lighter you”:

Commit to your evolution 

Dedicate yourself to personal evolution, and cultivate a relationship with yourself that is loving, patient and without judgment. Acknowledge that you are powerful, and that your thoughts, coupled with the heart energy, can create any reality you dream of. Be aware that your energy extends well beyond your physical body, and that you have the ability to affect the world around you simply by your presence, so you make the choice to live consciously and responsibly.

Choose love

Remember that there are two basic emotional expressions–love and fear–and that at any given moment each of us is either in a state of giving and receiving love or in a state of fear, calling out for love. Moment to moment, as often as possible, make the love choice.

Acknowledge your important role

Realize that you are involved in a great period of spiritual awakening, and that you can be a facilitator in this exciting shift in consciousness and heightened awareness by being a living love-example. Every moment offers an opportunity to serve in some way, even if simply by being an example of unconditional love through your words, thoughts and actions. By doing so, you inspire others to do the same.

Be compassionate

Live with compassion and tolerance for all individuals and paths, even if you do not choose them for yourself. Understand that all paths eventually lead one back to their Source, no matter how they appear to our physical eyes.

Take time to be still

Give your mind and body a rest. Meditation not only relieves stress and creates balance, but in moments of silence you are more likely to perceive the messages of Spirit. A simple way to get started is to sit or lie down in a peaceful place and focus on your breathing. What can result is a greater sense of well-being, feelings of love and serenity, new insights, a solution to a problem, etc.

Be here now

Be willing to focus more on the present moment and relinquish attachment to the past or future. When you focus on what’s happening right here and now your creative energy is more fully available to handle every situation with love, clarity and personal power.

Take responsibility

Shift from any tendency towards a victim mentality into personal responsibility for each and every moment of your life. Know that all the experiences you have attracted into your life are purposeful and have the potential for positive meaning and growth.

Consider forgiveness

If there is anyone from your past that you are angry with, consider forgiveness. Anger drain’s one’s energy–it’s a lower, heavier frequency. Forgiveness is for your own benefit. It does not mean you condone the negative acts of another–it simply frees you to get on with your life in a way that is loving and unencumbered by past hurts.

Stay peaceful

Maintain serenity and a sense of balance in the face of the negative illusions within physical reality, including the presence of suffering. Realize that underlying all aspects of the physical world are the essence of love and the presence of peace. Even behind suffering is a Divine plan.

Let love lead you

Be willing to allow your heart intelligence to be your guide, and surrender the human mind to the heart-mind.

I joined Cindi’ Oriente’s healing network today at the global hour when so many others around the world were also offering their Reiki healing and prayers. When I finished, I had a sense of peace but also a sense of increased  need out there in the world that has occurred just in this past week.

Many, many more people woke up today to a different world than they knew one short week ago — one of pain, devastation and loss; through the tornadoes, the Ohio high school shootings, and Syria’s now-blocked-from the world’s view killings.

I offer my time and myself in prayer for the masses and for  personal family and friends’ needs. At the end of my prayer time, I read a little bit about Cindi and in one instance she asked us if we remember the story of Chicken Little.

I do. I hated that story. I hated people laughing or making light of Chicken Little and not listening to her. I was on Chicken Little’s side. And for a good part of my own life, I felt often that the sky was falling on me.

Now I am praying and offering my Reiki healing to those people and families upon which the sky truly has fallen. My time is very quiet — my knowing is that there is a Spirit, Power, and Presence in the very places and hearts where it is needed — while I sit in my unchanged world with only my heart and my love and my prayers  to give them. This will have to be enough.

It is enough because it is light and I believe with all my heart that this light shines through a darkness that cannot put it out. Tears from a bottomless well of broken hearts cannot douse the flame — because when there are those who cannot see because of the darkness, there are also those who carry the light and surround them until the way can be found.

There is much need for us to “keep our lamps lit” to keep our hearts open and to be ready. For we have been told we do not know the day or the hour in which we will be called to share our own light or be prepared to receive the light of love and prayer from another.

These two words — ease and grace — sounded in what I thought to be a most unusual place for me to hear them, but maybe not. I was getting a “hold-over” to next appointment with my cranio-sacral and accurpressure, reflexologist practitioner.  She, as she worked near my side thoracic muscles asked me to “forgive and release with ease and grace” anything I no longer needed to hang onto, and current and family ancestor issues came to mind.

Love was the feeling and tears were the immediate result with a pain in the heart, not the knee which has been presenting a problem to my mobility. I have two brothers and a sister-in-law experiencing difficult physical problems and I am at an arm’s length distance to be of any help with this ongoing challenge. I wish to do and be more for them. I do what I can in my prayer and Reiki healing gift and hold out for the Highest Good, knowing it truly does surround them.

The words, “ease and grace” though surprised me yesterday at that juncture, so I am applying them to my physical self. They are big in my spiritual concepts and work. In fact, in one of my regular spiritual readings from  Unity’s Daily Word, the word for Sunday, Oct. 16 and Mon. oct. 17 were Grace (Sun) and Ease (Mon).

On that Sunday, we went to the Open House of the house that was to become ours. On Monday, Oct. 17 the word was Ease and I wrote on the page, “I accept our new home”. and “We found our new home today.”

That day we began conversations and number crunching activities that moved us into our new home on Dec. 3, less than two months later. Using all resources we had to obtain the home, the mover even provided the truck and two men to move us into the home.


I am trying to change a tendency I’ve had for a long time — and that is to either make things hard on myself or harder than they have to be. I’ve made great progress with this but know it is still an error in my flesh.

Today, I see grace and ease working in my life and I open the door to let Spirit express in me in wise and wonderful ways. I call on wisdom and understanding as I realize the innate divinity within me.  That is the mystery I contemplate now.

I am hoping that as ease and grace continue to fill my life and I give into it, that I take inspired action (and thoughtful contemplation) and sow the seeds of more good upon the earth, enjoying the act of co-creation along the way.

I see others doing this. I can do this too.

Tomorrow, at 1 pm, as a Reiki Healing Master, I meet alone and quietly with the World Healing Network of Reiki Master Cindi Oriente, and offer my quiet prayer and Reiki Healing Energy to all who have requested it on her website and for my own intentions and persons dear to my heart as well.

As a Reiki Practitioner, the most important thing I can do is to practice Reiki daily for myself and others. On Sundays, I have the opportunity to join in connection with a web of practioners all over the world to affect our lives and our world for good.

I am blessed to do this.

Below is a reprint from Cindi’s home page of World Healing Network.  I have been especially focused over the past few years to……FIND LOVE and not find fault. It is such a better way to go! And now I have a track record to encourage it which continually brings more good into my life.

Here are some, not only uplifting thoughts, but some tried and proven ways to make things just…….a little bit better.

As I spend time in my Reiki practice tomorrow, I will agree that each of us are made up of atoms of love, the same atoms that fire up the universe and that for today, each of us gives of the energy that is connective and unifying and peaceful.

The 12 Principles of Attitudinal Healing

The essence of our being is love.
Health is inner peace, healing is letting go of fear.
Giving and receiving are the same.
We can let go of the past and of the future.
Now is the only time there is, and each instant is for giving.
We can learn to love ourselves and others by forgiving 
rather than by judging.
We can become love finders rather than fault finders.
We can choose and direct ourselves to be peaceful inside, 
regardless of what is happening outside.
We are students and teachers to each other.
We can focus on the whole of life, rather than the fragments.
Since love is eternal, change need not be viewed as fearful.
We can always perceive others as either extending love or giving a call for help.

Learn more about these principles at Jerry Jampolsky’s website
he is one of my absolute favorite authors of all time..

I am a Certified Reiki Master. I love being that in this world. The integrity and responsibilities that come with it are great reminders of how I want to live, what I aspire to be in my essential being. And it is a wondrous evidence and demonstration of my core belief, even though I cannot thoroughly understand it. I take it on faith:

                   There is only One! Only one Life. And that life comes FROM Source and IS Source. In that Source, there is No lack, no – ill being, no sickness, no poverty, no injustice, no sorrow, no violence. And yet I live in the land and the world where seemingly all of those things exist. I have chosen to recognize my Oneness with this One Source and to live it and become more like it and share it with others who also want to join in the mystery.

Reiki is an Energy Healing, a holistic health practice, although it is also “not exactly” lined up with those modalities –  because the founding of Reiki came from a Japanese man, Mikao Usui, who set out to find out just exactly how a great spiritual leader, like Jesus, healed others. During his quest to learn this, he was given a spiritual experience, like Bill Wilson was from the 12 Step AA Programs, and then went on to establish global programs of healing.

They are both Spiritual Programs that heal on all levels: spiritual, emotional and physical. Bill Wilson simply wanted to be able to stop drinking and by sharing what he knew with other alcoholics, he was able to do this and established the 12 steps.

Usui simply wanted to know how to heal. Through his spiritual experience, the gift of healing made a home within him, and through the Level 1, Level 2 and Master attunments, he shared this gift and awakened in others the same ability to continue affecting the world for good.

I have joined Cindy’s Global World Healing Reiki network and in my Reiki prayer for self and others today, I found an energy of insistance that I share this great gift. Since we moved to our smaller townhome, there is not room for my Reiki table nor the Reiki Room I had in our last residence. I feel called now to find a place in the public to accept my Reiki bed in an available room, where I can give ongoing education about Reiki and give treatments and attunements. I seem to be thinking a lot about caregivers these days and I am wondering if I should focus my search there.

In the meantime, I share Cindy’s work with you as it has a wondrous spirit of love that our world needs so much. Just like you and I do.

Hi!  My name is Cindy Oriente, and I’ve been a Certified Reiki Master/Teacher and spiritual counselor for seventeen years.  Reiki has truly changed my life, helping me to become more focused and balanced, more compassionate and loving towards myself and others.  It has accelerated healing on all levels of my body, mind and spirit, and through my healing sessions and the Reiki classes I help others remember they can do the same.  Each of you has this wonderful gift of healing within you!  If you have questions about Reiki, please email me.

Each Sunday, people all over the world
are sending love, prayer and healing energy
to people who are seriously ill–we’d
love for you to join us!



What is Reiki? Reiki is a simple, natural and safe process for self-healing on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels.   Anyone can learn to tap into this higher energy of unlimited, Divine Intelligence and unleash their inherent ability to facilitate Reiki energy.Who Can Reiki Help? Reiki appeals to all people, crossing over the illusory boundaries of race, religion and nationality because it recognizes the oneness of all living beings and our interconnection through our One Source—the One Heart.What is a Reiki Session Like? Reiki facilitators channel higher-dimensional, spiritually-guided Life Force Energy. This is the unconditionally loving energy that has given birth to us all and that unites us all. 
Reiki offers the receiver an invitation to heal.   As the energy of the Reiki facilitator heightens during the healing session and they place their hands just over the receiver’s body or lightly touching it, the receiver perceives the energy on a deep soul level and very naturally matches it through a process of harmonic resonance. This can feel like a soothing warmth in the body or a slight tingling, or a combination of the two as energy moves throughout the body, although it is not necessary to actually feel the energy for it to be effective.  Nurturing the Self

We all know the Earth journey can be challenging, so it’s important to remember to nurture and honor ourselves every step of the way.   Patience is the key–we can learn to accept and be in compassionate understanding of every aspect of ourselves, especially the parts we don’t prefer.  All dis-ease, whether it be physical, mental, emotional or spiritual, or any combination thereof are the very parts of ourselves that are calling out for love and transformation.   All energy seeks resolution and balance.  We can love ourselves into spiritual awakening and physical wellness in the same way that the Creator loved us into being.  Reiki is Love.



“The majority of us lead quiet, unheralded lives as we pass through this world. There will most likely be no tickertape parades for us, no monuments created in our honor. But that does not lessen our possible impact, for there are scores of people waiting for someone just like us to come along; people who will appreciate our compassion, our encouragement, who will need our unique talents. Someone who will live a happier life merely because we took the time to share what we had to give. Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. It’s overwhelming to consider the continuous opportunities there are to make our love felt.” — Leo Buscaglia


We are all made of energy. We are energy beings, each vibrating at different frequencies. And the truth is that the loving energy of a Reiki practitioner has the ability to affect others in a positive way everywhere they go, whether or not they are facilitating an actual “healing session.”  When your auric field comes in contact with another individual, who you are and what you stand for is communicated on an energy level, whether or not the other person perceives it consciously, and even if no words are spoken.  You are playing your “Reiki Radio” for them as you move through your daily lives, playing a song of love, and by doing so you are inviting them to play along with you 🙂  So just by being you, wherever you are, you are assisting in the evolution of mankind and the healing of the planet! 

…the Heart Math Institute in Northern California has found that there’s a field around the human heart that’s shaped like a doughnut– its called a Tube Torus–it’s between 5 and 8 feet in diameter.  So when you’re within 5 – 8 feet of another person, you’re in their heart field and you two are communicating on levels you may not even be aware of.”  –Gregg Braden, in a interview at the Prophet’s Conference  New York City , May 2001

Moment-to-moment there are opportunities to touch the lives of others.  As often as possible
you can choose to:

Think loving thoughts

Express yourself through loving words

and BE love in action.

BE Reiki!

You can teach others about Reiki and offer them a vision of healing by simply being love in your everyday life. Smile at people! Do and say thoughtful, unexpected things. Surprise people with loving kindness!  You’ll feel great!  Service to others is the greatest way to serve the self, because all are lifted by it, and this creates a never-ending chain of love that will transform the world we live in.  Guaranteed!

Be a beacon of light, and shine it everywhere!

 Discover lots of love and light through Cindy at:
