Ivy, Reiki Master

I was pregnant with Ivy when I got my Medicine Reiki 3 attunement. I wasn't sure whether it would affect my baby or not, but I'd been waiting over a year for the class to be held, so I went ahead and took it. When my Reiki Master passed my attunement, he said he saw six Medicine Hoops. He saw this as three for me and three for the baby, and he felt that the baby had been attuned to the Master level as well.

Ivy does some very great reiki work. I can tell when she's just wanting to rub and be physical, and when she's actually channeling reiki. She gave me some awesome reiki for my stomach (and the baby...aw) this afternoon when I was feeling so sick. She was doing it over my bed sheet, and I was still blown away by how hot her hands got! She usually stays a bit chilly (kid won't wear socks and insists on sundresses even in winter), but this was some strikingly hot work this morning. It helped a lot. When I jumped up to go to the bathroom, I was suddenly lightheaded and actually fell. I should have sat and grounded first, but you know how it is when the bladder hits and someone's had their hands on your tummy...I hadn't realized how strong a dose I'd gotten in that little bit of time. She really amazes me sometimes.

Eden is attuned to level 1, and Josh is attuned to level 2. I can actually feel the difference between all three of them. It's really awesome.

I've been reading a new reiki book, as I'm trying to get back to my teaching. I just learned that Ivy shares a birthday with Usui Sensei, the founder of Reiki. That strikes me as very neat.

I've heard that some people are born with reiki if they've received an attunement in a past life. I wonder how many born Reiki Masters there are out there. I think there probably aren't a whole lot, at least right now. I look forward to Ivy getting old enough to participate in actual classes and learn the conscious methods. She has such a natural talent. It's very exciting to me to watch it blossom.

Laurel was born with the ability. She watched my mom demonstrate 'touch therapy' after a lecture on it for work and immediately came over and just... healed. She was 3. I swear her working on my back and neck is why I'm not disabled.

That's so awesome! I've definitely decided to recruit the girls more to help with this back problem I'm having. I think most kids are natural healers if in an environment that nurtures it.

I think you're right :) Anna can do a good bit, too, but needs guidance. Laurel has always been able to 'feel' where I hurt with 'hot spots' and just draw out the heat and energy blockages, reduce inflammation and make me mobile again. She's killer with migraines, too!

Man, I'm not sure I'd get any enthusiasm for it here like I might have in Asheville, but I've always wanted to organize kids' classes and reiki shares. I think it would be so powerful!

*nods* I can't find any around here, either.

Anna's a projecting empath and she seems able to project her aura in the same way and kind of .... insert and tweak ... my energies and aura with it. I'd love to help her figure that out more for healing (she tends to do it in a destructive way when upset) it would be really powerful.

Laurel seems to just kind of melt into my energies and let her own smooth and re-set mine (which is also how I do healing work) ... more attuning than tweaking, so to speak.

Kids are amazing! I can't wait to see what 'flavor' JT comes out with!

Yikes. You should definitely consider finding or starting some kind of healing circle! I think a natural healer, but especially a child, who heals/projects with their own energy should be taught how to avoid draining themselves or inadvertently acting like an 'energy vampire' (I hate that term). I worry that I do that with Ivy sometimes. She's so calming to me, I'll want to cuddle while I'm all angry and upset, and I worry that she soaks that up sometimes. :/

I do think maybe reiki classes could help Anna, at least to be able to do healing while replenishing her own energies.

I wish I knew some good books on energy work for kids. I have looked for a lot but not found anything that I thought made sense. Maybe that's a market I need to fill! lol
