Distance Reiki

Yesterday,  I had a very wonderful and amazing experience. 




While it's something I've done before, stepping back and looking at the experience or sum of it, I'm blown away with quiet awe and gratitude that I am offered the opportunity to be a part of this work (Reiki) - it's nothing short of incredible.

A long time friend was struggling and knowing she is  struggling to see people yet keep people at a safe distance as well we chose to  work together and I offered up some Distance Healing. 


Reiki energy is omni present and you need nothing more then to be aware of the time I am sending you vibrational energy  waves your way. Go about doing what you do with intention of feeling the reiki energy  and healing yourself through the distant session.  



Then I thought about what was happening.  For the first time since 2007  I really thought about what  we were doing here.
Together, we connected with our  energy, we sent healing energy as friends not just as a reiki client.  We used the techniques that I train in the Academy that she is well aware of. She said felt the difference happening. 

I did too,  we felt the changes not only in her but in myself as well. Together (from afar, her home and I in mine)  we sat channeled a beautiful, applicable and inspiring message from our mind and our guides. We both sensed when the session was complete. We felt like we had really accomplished a lot.  We connect on a Celtic Level. Did this make a difference? 

So there I was, sitting at my home office table. People were walking by my home I could see them out my window. But I was involved in this incredible experience and the outside world just kept moving along.


I typed up the report of our session, included the guidance received, and emailed it to ( My friend) the client. What is always exciting with distance reiki is that when someone you work with (on) verifies that what we had done had been powerful for her, and that she felt lighter, loved, supported, guided, dare she say better. Mentioned it was like dancing around a fire, dark yet warm and safe.  


I am filled with joy and gratitude to be part of this experience.


I feel like a super hero.  No ego simply a hero that is there creating  sacred space for healing in whatever  space feel comfortable enough for those seeking  help can come and join me there. 


What is more magical than this experience?? 


I can't think of anything. Real magic, this work.

I have the best job ever.


Feeling that I  had to share the experience with you just because well, there's nothing like it. And during these dark months we have come through and still see no real light,  let Reiki be yours. 


We are capable of so much beauty, healing, magic, connection, intuition, and joy. And most of us, most of the day, walk around oblivious. It takes moments like the hour I spent  yesterday morning to be a powerful reminder of this truth. 


I love being a part of it.

I told my husband at dinner, we are connected to everything. We have access to all of the information in the universe. We only need to learn the methods necessary to train ourselves to receive the information we seek. As I am still setting up the Academy and the course online as the new normal, this is very joyous news for me being a holistic practioner. 


The act of connecting to another's energy and observing will activate a healing process. And intention amplifies that process. It was fascinating and just served to validate what I already have experienced. 


I love that my students past and present resonate with  my  basic teachings and are with me in  believing that the more people who are "psychically" accessing a target, the stronger the signal will be. 

That also validates that healing with a team is more powerful than alone. I will never forget my  level 2 class and I  joining in as a team to send healing energy to a BEE-utiful (see what I did there?) lady in the Vernon Hospital as we sent her distance reiki healing. 

But I already knew that too. Yesterday was another perfect example of that insight.


Feeling the need to  blog because I'm just overwhelmed with gratitude for the privilege of doing this work. For all of you who also given Reiki, you know how I feel. 

For those of you who haven't yet learned it, I would be honored to teach you, advise you, and help you discover that anyone can learn this too. 

I'm not special, I tell people. I just learned to do something extraordinary. You can too. Be ready to be ready and tune in to your inner guidance. That's it in a nut shell. 

Bright Blessings,

12 PM
2 PM 

Friday 

10 AM
12 PM
2 PM

Root Chakra Reiki  will only book clients for a maximum of three clients per day 9-10 appointments during a week  that allows for ample time to properly sanitize between clients. The timing is slightly flexible but YOU THE CLIENT will need to pre-book . This allows me to  gauge what's required.


NO WALK IN CLIENTS - ALL CLIENTS MUST BE PRE BOOKED


HEALTH CONFIRMATIONS:

As a small business I email or  text clients 24 hours prior to their appointments to confirm their health status. Anyone not feeling well, must reschedule. The same applies if anyone in your household is ill or if any of you are under quarantine.


ASKING THE HARD QUESTIONS:


Have you been in close proximity to anyone or have you yourself been a confirmed or suspected case of covid-19?


Are you experiencing a cough, shortness of breath, a sore throat, and loss of taste or smell or had diarrhea in the past 24 hours?


Have you had a fever in the last 48 hours?

Both Parties will wear a mask as needed. 


 I am working from the foot end of the table during  Reiki Sessions.  There will be  no headsets available and music will be off the computer.  Easier and healthier way to stay germ free. Table will have no linens on them for easy wipe down. Clients must also wear masks for the duration of the appointment. No exceptions. Please come with one on or I will provide over with an added $2 to your total.

SCHEDULED APPOINTMENTS:


Clients will be asked to show up AT their appointment time. You will need to use the restroom and wash your hands before the session and after. You will need to scrub your hands for  at least 20 seconds with *warm soapy water. Please be on time as everything is very precisely timed to allow for appointments and the cleaning after each of you for your safety and my own.

THE CLEAN BASICS:


I will be cleaning everything the client touches including, the massage (Reiki) Table, the chair I sit on, the door handles, washroom etc. with a government approved disinfection solution and a thorough cleaning of every flat surface including walls at the end of the day.

I will be using disposable towels. ( Blue brand Jay Clothes) Found in the  restroom and in the treatment room. 

CLEANING IMPLEMENTS:

I will continue to clean my implements with warm soapy water then follow up with the appropriate disinfection procedure for each item and full sterilization of the items that require. Pendulum, Gemstones and Singing Bowls. 

CLIENT BASICS:

Clients will be asked to immediately wash their hands with warm soapy water for a minimum of 20 seconds (sing happy birthday). As always, I will have hand sanitizer in the treatment room which needs to be used once you sit or lie on the treatment table, the chair and again before you leave to prevent any possibility of covid-19 transmission. 

Absolutely this is a task! 
For your safety and mine  
No, it's not negotiable.

I have a bin for all your things. Purse, keys, jacket, cell phone.. Yes, cell phones must be put away and off the treatment table.

CONTACTLESS PAY:


All clients that are no GROUPONS must prepay contactless pay through e-transfers or Pay Pal. 

Credit cards and cash are not accepted. 

I do not wish to hunt anyone down for payment. Businesses have enough to do right now to provide services and keep the  space clean. 

SOCIALIZATION:

YES, we have been off work for weeks and months and we will undoubtedly want to chat up a storm, Root Chakra Reiki is asking clients to limit talking as we are trying to reduce the possibility of particulates in the air. We will have masks on but it’s important to do all we can.

NEW CLIENTS:

I will be limiting new clients to MONDAYS so that they can feel  I have room for my existing clients with my reduced schedule.

Moving forward there are some very big changes, while as a business owner I  know change can be difficult, I want you to know I've implemented them for your safety as much as my own and that of my family.  


Our pricing will change a bit due to the extra costs incurred for PPE (Personal Protective Equipment)  and new sanitation requirements and overall higher expense for ALL of my equipment and products. It won't be a large change but it is necessary. 

Thank you for your patience through all of this!

In days of old, which we still adhere to, folks would come together at Pagan events and usually, these events were the only time most folks would be all together in one area at the same time; so, understandably, rites of passage would take place where there are friends and family witnessing and sharing the event. There are many types of Rites of Passage and below are just a few of them.
Rites are:

  • handfastings (binding ),
  • Handparting (unbinding),
  • Naming ceremony or Wiccaning (baby or toddler),
  • Squiring (puberty boys), First Moon (puberty girls),
  • Croning and Saging (Non-menstruating women and senior men), etc.
These events are also a time where folks would like to anoint or be anointed by a high priest or high priestess, initiations, consecrating magical tools, cleansings, blessings, etc.  If you would like to have a rite performed during any of our Ritual Events throughout the year,  please private message Chanter Reedwitch, Jade Cropley, Michelle Regnier or Wayne Robert and one or some of us or others who have experience will help with your wishes.It is important that you let us know well in advance of our Rituals.

**********************
COMMUNAL SACRED FIRE
You must be 2 METERS APART at all times
Fire is for ritual only!
**********************


Pagan Festival Firepit Etiquette
One of the main attractions at pagan festivals is the firepit. As with the ancient people, the presence of a communal fire naturally draws people together, creating instant community (just add wood!). What happens around these firepits greatly depends upon the people, the program, and the weather.

What you can expect around a firepit is as follows:
* conversation and socializing * Discussions
* bardic performances (singing, dancing, poetry, storytelling, etc.)
* dancing & * drumming
* ritual
The firepit should be a safe place where everyone is welcome to share in the fire's heat and light. This shared experience creates a bond, but it is everyone's responsibility to maintain it. The firepit is a magical place where friendships are forged, beauty is celebrated, stories are shared, and where laughter reigns supreme. But a firepit is also a surprisingly delicate environment. It can be easily destroyed by ego, rudeness, carelessness, or even physical danger.

The bonfire is a sacred place, so unless the fire-keeper says otherwise, only the fire-keeper is allowed to feed a fire.

Sharing a Fire Pit
What people do around a firepit depends greatly on the event, the time, and the location of said fire pit. Some fire pits are largely social gatherings where people sit or stand in groups and catch up on news, tell jokes, and just enjoy each other's company. Try to keep the volume of your conversation to a respectful level so as not to drown out other people.

*************************
NO ONE BUT THE APPOINTED SOCIAL MEDIA person can  use a video/audio recorder to record what is said around a firepit without *everyone’s* explicit permission. Please ask for a colored yarn to wear,  if you do not want photos taken of you. 
***********************

The attention of the crowd might shift from intimate conversation to a group discussion, but this should be as organic as possible. In most cases, insisting that everyone stops talking to listen to you speak is regarded as rude, unless an announcement is to be made.
 If a Firepit is being built to allow people to dance, there are usually a few key elements: a ring of dancers, the musicians (drummer) in one corner, and the watchers on the outside. No one is obliged to dance, but the dancing line is open to all. Generally, the dancers will move either clockwise or counterclockwise, so you are expected to move with the flow of the group. When there are too many people for a single ring, multiple rings will form.  Sometimes people will take some or all of their clothes off while dancing around a fire. Whether this is allowed or not depends on the Festival Organizer, so consult with the Fire-keeper or Security to find out if this is appropriate, especially if children are present. 
However, skyclad is not an invitation for anyone to touch, grope, or make lewd or derogatory comments.

Happy Solstice & Blessed Be!

Herbs for Spells.........................

Blessed Oak Moss & Lichens 

Description
Each packet weighs .02 lbs / shipping weight 2 oz.
In ritual, folklore and magic, oakmoss is often used for purification and to break hexes.  All of our herbs are responsibly wildcrafted for your sacred, ritual, ceremonial and magical use. Herbs are perfect for use in spells, candle dressing, additions to incense and many other applications. 

NOT FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION. 
Responsibly Wildcrafted in BC Canada. Items in photo other than herbal packet are not included. Sorry no refunds or returns. Not for consumption.





Yarrow
Description
Each packet weighs .02 lbs / shipping weight 2 oz.
In ritual, folklore and magic, yarrow is often used for purification and to break hexes.  All of our herbs are responsibly wildcrafted for your sacred, ritual, ceremonial and magical use. Herbs are perfect for use in spells, candle dressing, additions to incense and many other applications. 


Yarrow is also known as nosebleed because of its wonderful hemostatic action. It slows down bleeding and thus is useful for nosebleeds, yes, but also wound care, first aid, and excessive menstrual flow. It is antibacterial and anti inflammatory, which in combination with its hemostatic action, makes it an excellent herb for wounds. I include it in my Better Bottom Bath to help mamas recover from childbirth. Yarrow encourages sweating and is expectorant. It is excellent to include in a tea for colds and flus. It is rather bitter and thus encourages digestion and stimulates appetite when taken before a meal.

It is an herb best used when not pregnant.

Yarrow has a very distinct smell. I rather enjoy it, but feel free to disagree! Bugs don't seem to love the smell evidently as a yarrow tincture makes an excellent insect repellant. No tincture? No problem. Crush the leaves between your hands and rub over your body to keep the bugs away! 

Internal use is not recommended without the guidance of a trained herbalist. Please consult an herbalist for more information.
NOT FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION.

Jade Facial Roller

Chakra Stone Rollers for Your Facial Skin Care




As a holistic spa practioner for over 20 + years there is something we have used in facials to make your face look younger, crisper, and more radiant. 

We are not talking about facial surgery here; we are talking about an old Chinese practice that involves using a tool called Jade roller.

Root Chakra Reiki Spa will introduce you to our Jade rollers, what they are and how they work. They are for sale on our shopping page for only $15.99 each. This is the  magic of looking fresh.



Our Jade Roller is a imbued  healing stone that tones the facial muscles and soothes the nervous system. Great for anyone with puffy eyes, it is believed to absorb negative energy.   

They can  improve blood circulation and eliminate skin puffiness. When you are stressed, it promotes cell turnover, tones the skin, and enhances skin elasticity supporting lymphatic drainage. What Root Chakra Reiki  loves about these rollers is the more we use it the less we need to buy products to help the aging process. 

Jade Roller stimulate collagen, which helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles by strengthening the skin. Jade rollers have been used in China by wealthy wonem since the 7th Century. The key method to Jade rolling is working the roller from the inside of your face out. Start from the corners of your nose, rolling out towards your eyes on either side of your face. Women tend to hold a lot of tension in their faces. Rolling helps release muscle tightness.  Jade stones are non-porous and do not harbor bacteria, there are no added dyes in our rollers and it  comes with cleaning cloth. Jade gemstone itself is said to represent healing and protection and promote qualities such as wisdom, balance and peace.


Root Chakra Reiki Rollers  are a great investment for any woman or man that is concerned about lymphatic build up in the facial area and does not have time for  regular facials or massage.  


Rollers can range in price from $5 to upwards of $200 depending on the quality of production. You can absolutely find a good  roller in the $20 -$50 range.  We are currently out of the Rose Quartz Rollers. They are fan fav in our shop.

All jade mined in China is nephrite jade which should not be confused with the far more expensive Jadeite jade.
