Usui Reiki in Harmony with nature

 Nothings in nature works, yet everything works in nature. 

 Every day beginning with the air that fills your lung you connect with nature in the form of earth’s energy.  As I explain in Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai classes, earth’s energy is a form of universal energy.  Usui Reiki is a piece of universal energy. 

Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo Reiki Kai, styles founded in Japan that honor Usui Reiki Ryoho, use a piece of universal energy. Classes and healing sessions in a building nestled in nature is perfect for the spiritual practice/healing art that does not require charts, symbols, hand positions, or material objects.

Styles honoring Usui Reiki Ryoho as Usui Sensei created/founded go beyond the study of books/charts/drawings.

Practitioners and teachers of these styles focus on vibrations given off by th different forms of energy.  Within each life form are cells that are either in-balance and working in harmony with other cells or are what we have come to know as illness and injuries.  Students learn to feel vibrations; this goes beyond working to force healing to allow the balance and harmony of universal energy to healin in the way best for the whole life form (mind/body/spirit). 

Mindfulness is a practice taught in various school.  In Gendai Reiki-ho and Komyo  Reiki Kai awareness is learned through various exercise as a person moves through the four levels.  Through awareness we can see that while universal energy does not work, yet everything with universal energy works in the best way.   

Being in-harmony with nature is making that connection with nature/the universe more beautiful.  Japanese exercises in Gendai Reiki-ho or Komyo Reiki Kai help you to learn how to do this and others have often gained this awareness through my guided meditation.    <Happiness can be outside your window>

In my fantasy children’s book What Tail? by R.R. Barnes  the breezes, the sunbeams, the moon beams and more, give advice to an animal to which people of all ages can can identify.

“The physician treats, but nature heals.” — Hippocrates

When  you consciously connect with nature, you can as the saying goes “feel the earth move under your feet”; you also can raise your awareness of life.

When you are in harmony with nature you can  feel the earth’s rhythm.  Usui Reiki Ryoho and meditation help you to feel various rhythms including the earth’s.  You can experience warm smiles by simply  looking out your window.”

Nature is peaceful beauty Nature sometimes shows us things that make us suddenly think from our heart center, which the place of true knowledge  This white dove to your left in front of my Natural Healing & Learning Center flew past my window to land in my driveway and then walked almost to the front door of my healing studio.

This happened when I was doing an open eyed active one-focus meditation, looking for solutions to a challenge.  When you look beyond the problem you often find solutions.

In my reality white doves are a sign of peace.  This white dove that flew past my window that afternoon was a symbol given to me by nature of the importance of peace in all areas of life. I had never seen a white dove flying wild in Maine before that day and I have not seen once since that day.

The manner in which this dove appeared and then disappeared is one of those memories I will always hold onto, and a story I often shares in classes.  It was not a symbol for others to use, but something the universe shared with me for my self-growth.  When you clear your mind and are open, nature can share with you things right for you at that moment in time.

In the guided meditations on the CD “Finding Your Solutions” I  ask you to visualize a certain number of white doves.

 Nature speaks to us in a very basic spiritual way.  A better understanding of this comes from reading, ‘Life . . . It’s Beautiful’ first published in my column in the Amherst Daily News in Nova Scotia, Canada.  You will see the last line is,  “Stop and think, is there anything more precious than life in any form”.

 Nestled in nature, my Natural Healing & Learning Center creates the perfect harmonizing atmosphere to complement the Universal vibrations of unconditional love and harmony that we have come to call Usui Reiki.

One of the things you may notice after receiving Japanese Reiki empowerments (attunement)  is your increase in the awareness of the beauty in nature.  Regardless of where you are, you always have a connection to the earth’s form of energy.

Just as you have an energy field around you so do all other forms of life.  In some of my workshops I guide those attending to see those energy fields commonly called auras.  Most children see these energy fields, but are often talked out of seeing them by well meaning adults.

When was the last time you looked up at the clouds and allowed yourself to be captivated by their form and delicate beauty, or said a silent thank-you for the warning they gave to you?

When did you look into a field or your own back yard and see  The Elder One?

Reiki heals all wildlife These photographs  to your left  have an interesting story behind them

One day I saw this butterfly in the grass. As a Usui Reiki Shihan, I feel inharmonic vibrations put out by any life form. Moving closer to the butterfly I felt those and put my hand down to allow Usui Reiki to flow to the butterfly.  The butterfly climbed onto the palm of my hand, and stayed while Reiki flowed to where it was needed.

The photographs came about after I  put my hand close to a sunflower, and when the butterfly climbed onto the sunflower I asked it to wait while I went in the house to get my camera. From the time I put my hand down in the grass close to the butterfly, I was offering a flat palm through which Reiki was flowing and the actions of the butterfly were the decision of the butterfly.

I returned with my camera to find that the butterfly had done as I asked and waited.  I put my hand close to the sunflower, the butterfly climbed onto my open palm, and the photographs were taken. When I put my hand back near the sunflower, the butterfly climbed onto the flower and then flew off.

Taking the time to allow Usui Reiki to flow to the butterfly, I was rewarded by the butterfly giving me the gift of allowing photographs to be taken.  My lawn was not mowed that day, but it was a day made perfect by an unplanned connection with nature.

If you go looking for trained butterflies at Natural  Healing & Learning Center you will be disappointed.  However, that was the third butterfly that had crawled onto the palm of my hand, probably because receiving Usui Reiki Ryoho feels so nice. <healing sessions> 

Your own backyard is a world of mystery and beauty, if you allow yourself to open up and experience the moment.  If universal love and harmony is flowing through you,  who knows what beautiful part of nature might be drawn to you.

Life it's beautiful  Nature offers many smiles and laughs that you can receive through any of your functioning senses. Those smiles and laughs can cancel out much of the negative in life.

 This baby raccoon gave me warm smiles by deciding that the back porch of my house was a great place to play. Posing for this photograph also gave me smiles. His mother later came to collect him, which gave me another smile as she seemed to be scolding him for running away and breaking into the human’s house.

 Baby raccoons almost always bring smiles. However, baby animals are not always available; when you learn to open up, you can find yourself smiling at many things around you.

The  piece of universal energy that flows with styles of Usui Reiki Ryoho is unconditional love and harmony, which is always available to anyone that has been opened to it by a qualified Usui Reiki Shihan.<learning Gendai Reiki-ho>

During a Reiki Healing Session universal energy flows to bring balance and harmony to those areas where negative may be lodged and is preventing you from smiling.

Nature is both forgiving and teaching. The spiritual practice of any style honoring Usui Reiki Ryoho teaches oneness in the spiritual level,  and is reflective of nature.  Wise people have shared with us that the animals, other then human beings, are put on this planet to help us to stay in balance. <healing herbs>

Have you ever thought how your life depends upon nature Do not your awakening, day’s production hours, winding down, and then sleep resemble the four seasons? Currently living in Maine, USA I am lucky to have deer and their fawns, turkeys and their chicks, and other wildlife  playfully sprint across my lawns. On the Reiki healing Sessions page is a photograph I took of a doe and young fawn, still with its spots, that gave me some wonderful smiles one spring morning.

Think of the enchantment of a calf that stands such a short time after birth. Remember the soaring Seagull in Richard Bach’s book ‘Jonathan Livington Seagull’.  Think of any wildlife you have seen from your home or car window that has taken you away from life’s down side for even just a few minutes.

The healing that happens through Gendai Reiki-ho, Komyo Reiki, healing with herbs, or meditation does not fall under the 1-2-3 and its done heading. Instead, they fall under the heading, ‘bringing balance and harmony into your life heals mind, body, and spirit in a way that touches all around you in a positive way’.

When you look at any ecosystem you see how any endangered piece endangers the whole. Fiction is a wonderful part of life, but connecting with true nature allows us to see true beauty.

My hope is while children are enjoying the antics and adventures of the characters in my book What Tail? by R.R. Barnes they will also learn to see with their heart, which is the place of true knowledge.

My guided meditations on Finding Your Solutions can help you to look beyond problems and see the solutions.
