To let go of old beliefs sounds simple but in everyday usage , not so much. Yet this is the first step I list in creating the life you desire in my book Journey to Now . It is an absolute must to step out of your box labeled reality. Here’s why.

What we believe is the truth about our lives flows through our very being, every cell, every neuron, every message passed through our body’s biological system. What we believe is the truth  is fueled in emotion and emits through the electromagnetic field of our heart, to be felt by ourself, and others. What we believe is the truth becomes imbedded within our brain, so much so that we always go back to it, which reinforces it even more.

And, why shouldn’t we go back to it? Our beliefs come from our past experiences, what we’ve lived and witnessed. They also come from what we have been taught by family, friends, teachers, society.We become so accustomed to how we believe things to be, that we tell the story of it every day. Why we have no money, why we don’t feel good, why we are a victim, why we can’t get ahead. We repeatedly put these stories out into the Universe vocally, within huge fields of emotion and believed as real. No matter who may disagree, no matter a “good” day or “change of luck”. No matter what present or future event may occur to prove your reality incorrect, the old pattern of belief from the past takes precedence. Because it is ingrained.

Sound hopeless? Not so! As I mentioned previously, step out of the box. Begin to explore new realities, new possibilities. Research, read, google new ideas on the internet, be it about health, nutrition, making money, creating a home business. From there delve into new sciences, spirituality, philosophy, energy medicine. I began my new reality looking into Reiki, past life regression, shamanism, sound healing, metaphysics to name a few. Attend workshops, meetup groups, online seminars, watch you tubes. When something resonates with you, learn about it and apply it, daily. It is said that it takes about 21 days of repetition before a new practice or idea becomes a new habit.

These new habits can then replace an old ones. This new truth then incorporates into your very biological being, neurologically within the brain and emotionally with feeling through the heart.They become your new story powered by the strength of those two organs’ electromagnetic fields that you vocalize throughout the cosmos. And thusly, your new reality is born. You can get a first hand illustration of this powerful process through reading my book  Journey to Now found on Amazon or my website

March is Heart health month. While exercise and diet are key to keeping healthy, Reiki can also play a role. Negative emotions work on energy levels of our bodies, often creating “dis-ease”.  A “sad” heart is not going to continue to be a healthy heart. When we are sad, discontent, angry, jealous, …we are not connected to our true nature. We are not connected to source, God, love, whatever your reference. We block these connections off.

I believe Reiki can work to undo these blockages, keep life force moving through us. We are all a part of  this energetic source. Often, during a reiki session, recipients will burst into tears as emotions flow through. It’s all about heart. It’s all about love.

What is Reiki?

What is Reiki? I am asked this alot, even though I presume everyone has heard of it. That is how commonplace it has become to me. Utilizing Reiki energy is a way of life for me. I Reiki myself every day. I send Reiki to family and friends, even those I do not know, for healing. The healing doesn’t have to be physical. It can be on any level including psychological, emotional, situational.

It’s traditional explanation has been: Reiki is an ancient Tibetan form of hands-on-healing that originated between 2,500-3,000 years ago. It was rediscovered by Dr. Mikao Usui, a monk from Kyoto, Japan. Dr. Usui developed the modern system and in the 1920s he passed this information on to Dr. Hayashi, who in turn trained a woman by the name of Hawayo Takata. It was Madam Takata who brought Reiki to the United States in the 1940s.

Reiki works on “ki” or “chi” energy that naturally flows through the body channels and Chakkra system. (Similar to acupuncture meridians.) It reinforces that flow in “blocked areas”. It addresses the whole person and works with the bodies own abilitiy to heal.

I personally have witnessed Reiki’s gentle and subtle power in myself , my students and clients. Over the past 10-15 years many a research study has been conducted on Reiki’s effects. I was actually part of one myself. Reiki is available as an alternative healing option in many a hospital around the country.

If you are on a quest for a  healthier life, stress reduction, or balance in general, definately check Reiki out. I am available here in Tucson or by phone. You can find me at It may just change your life….
