I am reblogging this post to invite all interested to my Patreon account where I am beginning video teaching for Reiki Master Healer. This embraces a great deal, including energy balancing, meditation, Reiki precepts, the truth about Reiki, hands-on healing and more! So lets go! https://www.patreon.com/jeninemarie
In my current research, I have found more and more medical professionals are recognizing the value of Reiki in healing ailments. Counselors and therapists are recognizing the value of Reiki healing for their patients with anxiety, depression, and emotional scars from the past. The one area that is now beginning to see the value in Reiki is within the realm of religion and belief.
Those of the Christian faith often struggle with the question of whether Reiki is right for them or not. Yet, most Christians accept medication for mental illnesses and physical problems. Also, where would we be if individuals were not trained as surgeons when an appendix is about to burst? Regardless of religious belief, an appendectomy can save someone’s life! At some point in history, Christianity has learned to accept that sometimes God heals through the hands of a surgeon, medications, and other scientific…
Empaths are those who feel others’ emotions and feelings at a deeper level than most. This might be displayed in flashes of experiences that most people had long forgotten. In this case, the empath is processing residue from those experiences and cutting karmic cords in those experiences. Or an empath might feel the feelings of another that go far beyond compassion to the point of crying tears with them. This helps release pressure in the energy field of a human being who is processing more internal pain than they need to handle.
An empath will feel the physical pain others are enduring and can apply energy healing either in person or by distance healing. This aids the healing process for another and will help their heart to open up to more life experiences again.
An empath will also feel and sense world events that might be disturbing. Sending love, energy, compassion, healing, and positive visualization can send messages to those who are bent on chaos to help in changing the aura area to love.
If you are thinking or believing that there are some who are too sensitive, think again. Being in an empathetic state is one of the highest roles of world service there is. Don’t attempt to stop an empath from feeling their feelings. It won’t work. Their natural state of being is learning to cope with crying others’ tears, feeling the world’s pain, and helping to process healing.
How can you help an empath close to you?
When they need rest, LET THEM REST
Don’t bring more of an emotional burden upon them than they already deal with.
Understand that life is not always about YOU. Sometimes life has to be about others who need the healing compassionate boost from empathetic people.
Remember empathy is a place of service to others and a way to filter the world’s energetic love deficit. When an empath is processing, LEAVE THEM ALONE!
Don’t place more upon the empath than they can bear at any given moment. YOU will then be the one who stops the healing process and are subject to karmic issues in your own life. Let a healer heal and tend to your own issues instead of putting them upon one who is working internally hard to gift the rest of the world with the healing energy and compassion that is much needed.
Everyone has tearful moments. Sometimes those moments last much longer than many of us like them to last. They are what they are; release of internal pain. Tears are like nature’s emotional pressure valve and the best way to keep emotionally free.
There are times when tears last more than a moment. These are seasons in life when someone’s emotional release valve has more than it should have to bear. Every now and then our valve release system gets clogged or even over-taxed.
Although we don’t want to interrupt someone’s release of painful experiences we do need to be one who chooses compassion over neglect. If we can train ourselves to be tear wiper blades we can be that compassionate cushion someone needs to get through some of the more pressured releases that can ultimately be harmful to their health and wholeness.
Yes, we need to learn to become tearful wiper blades for those who need us. Take a look around and find the one who is closest to you and dedicate yourself to wiping their tears. We can strengthen each other and help one another rise one woman at a time, one person at a time.
Choose to be a healer and a beacon of hope to those who have no one willing to be that wiper blade during times of tearful trouble. Give to those who need your time, your energy, and your compassionate healing.

If you google search the meaning of mistletoe you will find tales that go from romantic to practical when it comes to this prickly greenery. Every Christmas season I think of mistletoe as a gift of love and bravery. When my mind wanders back to those days I was a single mother with five children, the struggle always seems real again. Yet, there were so many touching things I can remember that still bring tears to my eyes today.
The Christmas season tends to be the coldest outside when it comes to weather so our warmth has to come from our hearts if we want to feel it. Mistletoe represents the warmth I remember when I think back on Christmas past. My oldest son was only maybe 12 or 13 when he started the tradition of gathering mistletoe together, wrapping sprigs with ribbon, and selling the bundles outside the front of the local supermarket. He would put on double layers of clothing and go off with a huge grocery bag full of mistletoe bundles offering them to those who went in and out of the store in exchange for a dollar. (Very enterprising young man)!
My mind can’t help but wander back to the Christmas season we had so little in our kitchen. I had no idea what to do or who to turn to as I gazed inside the refrigerator over and over hoping somehow something would pop up in there that I missed. I had one child in diapers and the others running around playing inside the house. They never really said too much when it came to when we were going to eat. It’s like they knew all would be alright.
Just when I felt like giving up hope, my oldest son popped in the door with a large hot pizza he bought for us with his mistletoe money. I close my eyes and I can see the joy on his face as the others grabbed a piece of pizza. Tears are filling my eyes because he is in heaven now, but his heart and warmth will always be remembered during every Christmas season. Of course, I can’t help but also thank the mistletoe for being a symbol of love that Christmas season and every one of them afterward.
You see, it doesn’t take much to fill a stomach and a heart, but when the heart is touched and filled it will never forget. I know mine won’t forget the selfless act of love my son gifted to us through the symbol of Christmas love; the mistletoe. I hope his bundles brought a lot of kisses to those who purchased them. They had no idea the work of God they rendered to us as a family that season and through every memory from then on.
Sometimes mistletoe is for more than kissing. Sometimes mistletoe is for selfless acts of love that warm the heart during cold winter seasons we are blessed to somehow overcome. The light of God shines on my memories, upon the mistletoe, and even upon warm delicious pizza.
Put action behind those words! Did you know when you tell someone you love them it is a call to action? Yep, it certainly is. Yes, love is felt in the heart but when not given expression it really has nowhere to go. Love is a river that flows from the heart to the subject of its desire. It makes no difference who it is directed toward. Your love might be for a friend, a child, a romantic partner, a spouse, a family member, or even an animal.
It’s amazing to me that often we give our animals more of our actions than people. Not that our pets and animals are not deserving but people need affection too! We need support, conversation, affection, companionship, laughter, sharing tears, and more. If it is too much to handle then the subject of our love is not love at all. Love brings a desire to be an active participant in someone’s life. I don’t believe there are degrees of love, just love. Love pretty much stands on its own and your actions will speak volumes as to what your true feelings are, not only to you but to those you claim to love.
On a more grand scale, if your deepest desire is love for humanity then “charity” will be the action you display. Charitable acts of love are the highest acts we can ever display in this world. If it is a relationship love then presence, support, and affection are what we display. You can always tell where your greatest loves are by the river of life and action toward them. Just follow the river and you will see what your true heart will reveal to you!

The intense grief for a mother who has had to endure the passing of her child or children is one of the hardest roads to walk in human existence. I have been told over and over again; the extent to which we grieve correlates to the extent we have loved. If this is true, my love has been deep, wide, and right to the soul. As mothers, we work on protecting our children every day of our lives, and when they leave our world it feels like the biggest betrayal of life ever. I was told once by an army lieutenant whose mother lost her older child that there is nothing more sad and daunting than the cry of a grieving mother. I have to agree. I feel sad for those who have had to hear me grieve the loss of my two children. It is not for the weak, that’s for sure.
Unfortunately, the grieving process we read about in books does not often talk about physical issues the grief of a child can bring, such as heart failure. It makes sense to me because it is the greatest heartache I think I have ever felt in my life. According to the National Library of Medicine in Bethesda, MD, a grieving parent has at least a 35% higher risk of developing heart failure than non-grieving parents due to the stress of the event. This statistic in and of itself shows the care that must be given to a grieving mother, especially during the first year or so after the passing of her child. The grief will never fully go away but will settle into a part of everyday existence.
Good medical care, a lot of loving support, and caring counselors are what truly help during grief cycles. Also, meditative methods, time alone to process the loss and those who understand are also helpful. One of the hardest parts of grief is feeling so misunderstood only second to the loss itself. Life goes on without us as mothers while our hearts truly break. I have always believed our emotional and spiritual state will eventually be spoken to us through our physical bodies as they reflect our state of being. It only goes to show the breaking of our emotional hearts, the feeling of life betrayal, and the hardship of not having our loved one can eventually break our physical hearts to the point of heart failure. Our hearts speak out, “Life has failed me so now I am failing.”
It’s a difficult cross to bear as life seems to dish out events that feel very unfair. Can we, as grieving mothers, ever overcome the trauma? Of course, we can. Hopefully, we can overcome trauma before irreversible heart failure happens from the intensity of loss and grief of the loved one we have carried all of our lives. We will never stop carrying them, that is for sure.

I have more classes coming. Next up I will be starting with energy healing basics and transition into official Usui Reiki Healer training for certification or enrichment. All certifications will be through the International Association of Reiki Professionals. There is a cost for that portion but I will go into the information when the time comes.

They are private only for those who subscribe. The subscription price is only $11 per month and can be changed, or stopped, at any time.
I will be posting videos ahead of time so there will be plenty of content, from energy healing to self-hypnosis, to law of attraction (manifestation) classes. I will be interacting with the Patreon account, so questions can be asked and answered at any time.
I look forward to providing you with great content you can learn from and even create your own practice if it is Usui Reiki!
This is a great value! So much more cost-effective for you. I will still have private sessions if they are needed!

I’m not sure why we seem to feel relationships are tricky. They seem to be the hardest to figure out when people are not either willing to bend or participate in them. The reality is, it takes two to create one. There is no such thing as a one-sided relationship. If only one party participates then it is NOT a relationship. Or if there is disrespect within the connection, there is no relationship there either.
We often fail to get the point about relationships. Regardless of what type: friendship, romantic, parent-child, or business, a relationship can not exist without both parties being engaged in it. Don’t be shocked or surprised when someone walks away from it all or no longer desires to be involved in a conversation with you if you are not willing to participate. In order to do that we have to have feelings about the connection. If we want to truly know if we do have those feelings there has to be communication and interaction. Even more important, there must be mutual respect.
I personally hit a resolve when it has come to relationship connections.
I will not be a part of a connection if there is a lack of respect. I can not respect someone if they do not respect me as a person.
If there is no or very little response to me I do not consider someone in my life. It takes two to tango and if there is no initiation on the other party’s part, I will assume they do not desire me in their life.
If someone is not willing to communicate and understand my position and my heart then there is no relationship in my world. I do that for others when they allow me to, speak to me kindly, and offer their friendship. Otherwise, there is nothing more to say.
I will consider myself abandoned if there is no response to my initiation of conversation and connection. Life is too short to have one-sided conversations.
I will consider myself abandoned if there is no heart-to-heart understanding or even an attempt at one.
There is no such thing as “I love you but I don’t have the time to connect with you”. Sorry, love can be present but it can not be expressed without connection.
I have boundaries in my life, everyone should. If they are continually crossed, I consider myself without you.
These might seem a bit harsh but, for me, they have to be true. You might have different ones, and that is ok. Our differences make us unique, but they don’t always make us friends.
**My Patreon account has video uploads for my new course, “Love Relationship Attraction for Women Over 40”. It will soon be filled with “Meditate With Me” content, self-hypnosis, energy healing training, and more! Come join me!
This is a message I have felt so compelled to share. Not everyone will like it but I can not help that. Please pardon the audio-speaking portion. For some reason, it came out lower than the beginning music and the app would not allow me to change it. You will need to just turn it up. Thank you!
