“Like” To Embrace Your Wild Hunger For Happiness: A Full Moon Reiki Meditation

Warming_Up_for_the_Nights_Howl_Gray_Wolf-(1024x768)

What is Reiki? Reiki is relaxation. Reiki is taking the time to take care of yourself so you can take care of others.

I will be offering a special Reiki gift to anyone who wishes to participate from the comfort of their own home tomorrow night.

TOMORROW, WEDNESDAY the 15th at 11PM EST.

It will be the night prior to the Full Moon, which is a very important night for celebration for many cultures and faiths around the world. From Buddhists, Native Americans, Pagans, and even Secularists; the cycles of the moon have a certain rhythm to them that mirror our own inner rhythms. And why not? It makes sense. Just like the tides that ebb and flow, our inner tides and waters fluctuate throughout the month as the gravitational pull of the moon gets closer and farther away.

This month’s full moon is The Wolf Moon; or the Old Moon.

“Amid the cold and deep snows of midwinter, the wolf packs howled hungrily outside Indian villages. Thus, the name for January’s full Moon. Sometimes it was also referred to as the Old Moon, or the Moon After Yule. Some called it the Full Snow Moon, but most tribes applied that name to the next Moon.” – Farmer’s Almanac

This will be an excellent night for really asking what is your heart hungry for? Self discovery is essential to a balanced and healthy holistic lifestyle.

As I like to say, “the winter months are when we can really allow ourselves to look within. Sometimes we growl at what we see…sometimes we howl in delight.”

So, why not get in touch with your inner workings a bit more; find spiritual, emotional, and mental clarity so that you can manifest harmony and warmth of spirit?

By liking this post, I will take that as an affirmative for wanting to participate.

My intention for Wednesday night will be to focus on our ability to weave webs of health into our lives.

“The web of fate represents a wheel of life, (remember our New Moon Card The Wheel?), which does not include any alternatives or solutions. It is typically human to get caught in the polarity of good or bad fortune without realizing that we can change it at any time. If we are not decisive enough about changing our lots in life, we may end up being consumed by our fears and limitations. We are infinite beings who will continue to weave patterns of life and living throughout time. Do not fail to see the expansiveness of the eternal path.” – Medicine Cards, Spider Weaving by Jamie Sams & David Carson

We will also focus on all those seeds that we planted during the last New Moon. This will be an excellent time for you to meditate and answer some of the questions we posed a few weeks ago. How have you tended your inner heart’s garden? Have you become more considerate of your actions towards others and your Self? Have you begun to shun negative self-talk? Do you find yourself being more grateful for the people in your life?

Our intention/prayer/blessing/poem for tomorrow night will be:

“Thank-you for sending Reiki gifts for the greatest good of everyone gathered for this healing.
Thank-you for sending Reiki gifts for the greatest good of all who could not make it for this healing.
Thank-you for sending Reiki gifts for the greatest good of our home, community, and planet.

May I embrace my wild hunger for stability and safety. Depression and anxiety have no power over me. I am here!
May I embrace my wild hunger for passion and sex. Destruction and co-dependence have no power over me. I feel alive!
May I embrace my wild hunger for laughter and sunshine. Pessimism and insecurity have no power over me. I think open-mindedly!
May I embrace my wild hunger for compassion and forgiveness. Bigotry and misery have no power over me. I love unconditionally!
May I embrace my wild hunger for honesty and creativity. Apathy and self-righteousness have no power over me. I speak the truth!
May I embrace my wild hunger for serendipity and sight. Lies & darkness have no power over me. I see the stars!
May I embrace my wild hunger for beauty and life. Discrimination and intolerance have no power over me. I know we are all connected!

As the moon wanes, may my pain and suffering be released as the moon darkens and darkens.
As the moon wanes, may my mind draw upon the peaceful sanctuary of this season, as the moon darkens and darkens.
As the moon wanes, may my soul be nurtured with self-love and self-acceptance, as the moon darkens and darkens.

As I travel through the land of Midwinter’s wonderland, may I relate my journey to the wisdom of this season.
May my spirit howl at the wonder of this night.
Happy Full Moon.
Namaste. By healing myself I can help to heal others.”

Just allow the energy to flow for a few minutes until it seems like you have met your mark. Bathe yourself in sweet moon beams as you drift away to sleep.

Now, as participants, if you wish to step it further, you can become a better conduit for this energy by sinking into meditation with me at the same time.

I will be performing the Reiki healing tomorrow, WEDNESDAY the 15th AT 11PM EST. for about 30-60 minutes.

If you wish, get comfortable, light some candles/incense, put your choice of music on, and meditate with me.

You may even wish to make some hot chocolate or tea, light some candles/turn on your holiday lights, and just sit. 

If you will already be in bed asleep, which is a great state of mind to be in when receiving healing, print out and say the intention above. Or you could even say one of your own making.

I am really very excited about this, and I welcome who ever is interested!

Let’s take some time for ourselves, and meditate together. (Just be sure to correlate with your time zone.)

If you run late by accident, don’t feel guilty. You can enter at any time and leave at any time.

The key is to allow yourself the time to heal. You may even wish to stay longer than the 30 minutes.

I will be gifting the Reiki for approximately 1 hour.

See you all tomorrow under the liminal moon light.

Namaste my friends, and Happy Full Moon!

  1. The following may be done to your own discretion prior to your distanced Reiki session:
    1. Shower, take a sacred bath, or simply wash your face and hands.
    2. Dress in comfortable clothing. (This means pajamas for me!)
    3. Select your choice of peaceful music that will span for about an hour, or however long you wish.
    4. Create sacred space: However feels right to you but the easiest way is to clean an area from clutter and arrange simply items with intent and purpose, such as the following if you so choose:
    -a bowl of water;
    -a flower, other green thing in a vase or simply fresh black earth in a dish from your yard;
    -incense/essential oils/smudge stick in a fire proof container, and
    -a candle on or around the area for meditation. If you feel uncomfortable with candles, a space heater, fireplace fire, or simply sitting in sunshine can be substituted. (Be sure however that the candle will not be knocked over by animals nor will its drippings melt all over cherished items)
    -You may even wish to pick a Tarot card or other item to focus your inner imagery during the session.
    5. Make yourself a light snack of wholesome whole foods, tea and fresh chilled water. Fresh fruits, vegetables, and whole grains are best. Waters can be chilled with a slice of lemon or other fruit that has been slightly macerated and left in a pitcher in the fridge. Herbal tea is also good to have on hand. Chamomile would be perfect for just before bed and preparing a healthy breakfast in the morning will start off your New day right!
    6. Make sure you explain to your house guests/friends/family that you will need to be left alone for the duration of your session.
    7. Silence your cellphones and land-lines.
    8. Ensure animals are kept in an area where they won’t be able to disturb you unless they are familiar with a mediation practice, in which case they may choose to join you.
    To begin your session:
    1. Place a drop of water/essential oil on your third eye chakra, your heart, and your tail bone. Light the candle, incense/essential oil/smudge stick, and smell the flower or green thing. You may rub it between your fingers if you wish to really smell these earthy grounding essences.
    2. Sit in lotus position or “Indian-style,” lay down, or simply find a comfortable chair to relax in. (Possibly in view of the Full Moon if you are lucky. If not, simply visualize the moon in all her glory.)
    3. Push the “play” button on your music media.
    4. Close your eyes
    5. Let your journey begin.
    During your distanced Reiki session:
    1. Be aware of any twitches or spasms of movement in your body. This is often a sign of release in an area.
    2. Be aware of heat, which is the classic and typical feeling in a Reiki session.
    3. Be aware of colours that you may see. If there is a colour you see predominately, this could be a sign that you need more of this colour/energy in your life to balance out your chakra of the corresponding colour.
    4. Be aware of past memories, or dreams that may surface during the session.
    5. Be aware of deep emotions experienced during the session. These could be of joy and euphoria; or of pain, anger, and sadness. All of which are valuable to your healing.
    After your Reiki session:
    1. Eat and drink plenty of water for the next few days. Often Reiki manifests with similar symptoms associated with detox, and plenty of water is important to flush away those toxins.
    2. Sleep and or rest to the best of your ability. 8+ hours a night is recommended.
    3. Record and document any odd or exhilarating dreams. These are also detox-like symptoms.
    4. Follow-up & share your impressions of the session. My contact information is above if you would like to privately send me your answers, questions, or impressions. (However, you may wish to comment on this post). 🙂
    Questions after your Reiki session:
    1. Were there any problems or questions during the session?
    2. What were your experiences during the session?
    3. What did you feel after the session?
    4. Did the Reiki healing help you with your complaint?
    5. Any other observations?
    I am also obligated by law to make you aware of the following:

    Reiki is a simple, gentle, hands-on energy technique that is used for stress reduction and relaxation. Reiki practitioners do not diagnose conditions nor do they prescribe or perform medical treatment, prescribe substances, nor interfere with the treatment of a licensed medical professional. Reiki does not take the place of medical care. It is recommended that you see a licensed physician or licensed health care professional for any physical or psychological ailment you may have. Reiki can complement any medical or psychological care you may be receiving. The body has the ability to heal itself and to do so, complete relaxation is often beneficial. Long term imbalances in the body sometimes require multiple sessions in order to facilitate the level of relaxation needed by the body to heal itself.
