Thoughts on Cats

It's two in the morning and I don't know how,
You awake me with barely a sound.
There was a time you were more nimble,
And it was easy for you to go out the window.

But now with arthritis in each of your hips,
You hop down the stairs with little bunny blips.
I let you out, grumbling back up the stairs,
But just an hour later, it's the same old fare.

Now I can hear you, crying crystal clear,
I'm worried you'll wake all of the neighbors here.
So again I work my way down the flight,
Letting you back in, my shadow of the night.

You are my kindred, my companion right now,
All you have to do is " just say meow"!
I'll do anything, because deep in my heart,
When it comes to cats, I'm generous to a fault.

Did You Know That The Easter Bunny Loves Reiki?



Yes, even the Easter Bunny hopped on over for a little spring tune-up with Reiki. Reiki is a gentle way to restore energy, release blockages, and experience more flow in the subtle bodies.

Much like acupuncture or acupressure, where the practitioner is stimulating or calming points along the meridians of the body, in Reiki, the practitioner uses their hands to connect the client with the abundant universal life energy that is always available to us through a light touch or energetic pass.



Similar to jump-starting a car, Reiki is a wonderful way to recharge your inner core so that you can feel restored and regenerated. It is a complementary modality that can assist the body in its inherent healing capacity as well as restore harmony and balance on every chakra level. I often combine Reiki with a guided meditation or hypnotherapy, which can be recorded.

Because one is fully dressed and the touch is so light, Reiki feels very safe for folks who are too sensitive to receive bodywork, whether that's because of fibromyalgia, cancer, recent surgery, etc. or have come from a history of sexual or physical abuse.

Animals respond very well to Reiki, as do babies and children. More and more we see Reiki in hospitals as an adjunct therapy. Indeed, many nurses are trained in Reiki as a part of their continuing education.

So hop on over for a Reiki session today for a spring cleaning on the soul level so that you can bloom, thrive, and grow!

Warmly,

Kayla

There is Plenty of Time

"There is plenty of time, and every moment counts".

Yes, you are busy. Yes, there is much to do. And what if you had all the time in the world to do it? Would you continue to rush around, helter-skelter, willy-nilly, maybe even cattywampus? Would you continue to waste it on worry, procrastination, video games or spreading negativity on social media? Notice how your own frenetic energy is the real robber of time.

There really is plenty of time. So use it well, use it wisely. Slow down, breathe, take a moment to focus and simplify. Come in for a session or two and learn some mindful time management techniques to feel more productive, in charge of your life, and simply less stressed out. All is well.

Blessed Be.

Ride the Waves

Inhale, exhale. Notice the in breath. Notice the out breath. Tune in to your beating heart, every contraction, every momentary expansion. Connect to the cycles and the seasons, day and night, full moon and new.

Where are you right now in navigating your personal tides? Are you riding the waves of PMS, a hot flash, a traumatic past memory, or momentary upset with your spouse/partner other? Can you take a moment to not just breathe out the discomfort, but find yourself centered and grounded, even as you ride out this tsunami of emotions?

Be the calm in the eye of the storm, the gentle voice, fierce and full of conviction, passionate and wild as well as tempered with wisdom and experience. You know the truth - not just that this too will pass, but that you will ride the waves again and again. Chop wood, carry water - wax board, swim out to the swell. Believe in your Self.

I do.

Blessed be.
