Dear fellow light-workers, Today I was at Pershing State Park in Laclede MO, and the guardian angel of the park gave me a mantra to share with y’all: “We are in harmony, acting as one.” The angel asked that we say this mantra 324 times each day (108 x 3) until the shift of 12/12/12. ♥
Recently, Reiki Master Julie Bowen gave Henry and I the Reiki 2 attunement. It was a different sensation and experience than the first attunement. The energy felt deeper and more complex. I saw an image of myself holding Henry, our actually what looked like a night sky full of stars in the shape of my baby, and I received the message that to nurture one is to nurture all.
Since then I have become acquainted with my Reiki spirit guide, who, interestingly enough, looks like the creature pictured on the cover of this book (pictured). That image fascinated and drew me when I was young and now I know why. Interacting with this guide has changed my mentality about Reiki in many small ways that I find impossible to put into words. I arm grateful for and fascinated by this spiritual adventure.
I created a baptismal ritual for Henry that my partner helped me carry out under the full moon. I opened the circle with salt, sage and a knife, lit a candle and incense and read the following invocation/blessing/prayer, during which I baptized Henry with water, then blessed him with a crystal and lotus oil. I closed the circle by walking it 3x while ringing a bell to thank and dismiss the entities who attended us.
Baptism Ritual for Henry:
Hail to the Guardians of the Above, Below and Within, the Neteru of Egypt: Isis, Nepthys, Bast, Anubis, Osiris, Ptah, Khosu, Nekhbet-Mother-Mut, Set, Horus, Hathor, Khnum, Nut, Geb, and Ma’at. We ask that you evoke the power and potential of Henry’s spirit, that he may fulfill the Divine Plan and be a blessing to all he meets.
(Face North) Hail to the Guardians of the North who hold the foundations of the Earth. We ask the Earth to connect Henry with pas wisdom, with beauty, with peace, and with the season of change.
(Face East) Hail to the Guardians of the East, sender of the winds. We ask the Air to give Henry access to enlightened communication, words of power, music, poetry, and laughter.
(Face South) Hail to the Guardians of the South who hold the Sacred Flame. We ask that Fire to activate the power of protection, faith, confidence and courage within Henry’s life.
(Face West) Hail to the Guardians of the West, Keepers of the Seas. (Baptize) We ask the Waters to attune Henry to the divine energies of the multiverse: the Buddha Nature, the Christ Consciousness, Krishna Vision, the Violet Flame, Reiki, Yggdrasill, Luna, Gaia, and the Golden Light within which we all merge as ONE.
(Bless with lotus oil & quartz crystal)
May he find his voice,
May he speak his truth,
May he walk the spiral path of the soul warrior with love, compassion,
wisdom, courage, faith, patience and forgiveness for himself and others.
May we as his parents guide him from the enlightened perspective of our Higher Selves.
May we be transformed by the sacrifices we make into our Best Selves.
I ask the gods and goddesses, Bujddhas and bodhisattvas, Earth, stars, angels (Gabriel, Michael, Uriah the Healer and the rest), fairies (especially Princess Aquazephyr and Foxy’s family), Saint Germain, MAlachi and all enlightened beings to bless and lead us each day of our lives.
Amen, amen and amen.
So mote it be.
Henry James was born via emergency C-section on April 10, 2012. He has been such a blessing to my life. Recently I took him to participate in a baby/child blessing ceremony at the Rime Buddhist Center. It was lovely listening to the sangha sing OM MANI PADME HUM as the children were blessed.
The lama told the children:
You have come with stardust in your hair,
with the rush of planets in your blood,
your hearts beating out the seasons of eternity,
with a shining in your eyes like the sunlight.
My partner and I were joined in marriage this Saturday. At a recent Heart Blessing where Saint Germain was channelled, he asked to attend and to bring friends with him. Of course, I said yes, and during the closing prayer as I closed my eyes, I saw/felt the yard full of entities there to bless our marriage.
It was also a blessing to be able to marry before our child is born – something we weren’t sure was going to happen. There seemed something so right about our child being at the event as well, especially because of a recent soul memory that surfaced for me in a dream. In the memory, my soul was between incarnations in “heaven.” An angel came to me – an angel that I recognized as the soul incarnating as my child – and told me that he had something important for me to see. I was surprised and intrigued as we traveled at the speed of thought to a place I understood as a birthing place for souls. It looked like a quickly spinning galaxy. There were a few other observers there when we arrived. We “stood” there waiting, when suddenly a new soul emerged from the “galaxy” and I understood deeply that this soul had been made specifically for me, to compliment me and to help me grow in my path. I also recognized the soul as the person I just married. In the memory, I fell instantly in love with him – as I did when I saw him in this incarnation. How blessed I am that the soul who introduced us will now be born as our child!
My dear friend and Reiki Master Julie Bowen did me the honor of teaching and attuning me to Level 1 Reiki. For those of you who are unfamiliar with it, Reiki is a type of energy work that promotes stress-relief, relaxation and healing. It is a hands-on technique.
The training itself was fairly straightforward and simple. (I am reinforcing it in my mind by reading Essential Reiki by Diane Stein.) The attunement was an incredible experience. At first I felt the energy coming down through my crown chakra like warm, golden nectar, dripping down into me. Then the energy flowed stronger, filling me with white light that poured through my body out my hands, feet and throat. Julie held my hands, one at a time, and I saw the energy flow through them to my arms and to all my chakras, combining into a whirlwind of energy within me. Towards the end, the energy all focused in my womb, where my soon-to-be-born child is and I was blessed by images of me and my child interacting after his birth.
Julie told me that she’s never felt the energy just drop down into someone the way it did with me. She said she usually has to force it somewhat. I know I was very ready to receive a way to help others, and I am so grateful for this attunement. In the few days since this happened, I’ve used Reiki in myself, my pets, my friends and my partner with beautiful results. I am excited to feel the changes within myself and excited to see what I will be blessed to do with this gift in the future.
