The Reiki Share last evening at the Place of Spiritual Wisdom, was great! While there wasn't a big crowd, there were some very gifted people there.

I love the energy that builds as the evening progresses. If anyone reading this is a Reiki practioner, you are welcome to join our Reiki Share. It is held once a month and I co-host the Reiki Share with Jaidee Bader, a wonderful Reiki Master, psychic medium and much, much more.

If you have questions about the Reiki Rendezvous (reiki share) you can text me at 623-26-2259 or Jaidee Baider @ 3-224-0732  We would love for you to join us!

Change is good! I now have family working with me, and it's great. If you have visited the About section, you have seen that my daughter has recently received her Reiki III certification and attunement and is offering Reiki healing sessions as well as psychometry readings. She is a very gifted empath and psychic. Also, my sister, Trish Monroe who is also a Reiki Master will be seeing clients in the office here. She is also a very gifted healing facilitator, a physical medium and is also an EFT practitioner. So I am very excited as we come into the month of April. We have a lot going on, including a Working with Crystals class on 2nd of April and A Reiki I class on the third of April. Love teaching these classes!

Paranormal Intuitives

Posted on January 20, 2019 at 1:45 PM Comments comments (0)
Yesterday I joined Madeline LaMont and Barbara South on their talk radio show- "Everything Holistic" to talk about dealing with paranormal activity. There has been so much hype on this subject, I really wanted a chance to give people a clear picture of what this is, how it works and answer questions people have about it. I have been dealing with the paranormal for a good deal of my life, when I stop and think about it. I was an adult, actually, when I came to terms with it and began learning what it meant, why it happens and how to deal with it. And with this, as with everything else, you don't stop learning about. There is so much to it. Anyway, the radio show went really well, and I had a lot of fun doing it! I do have a group, called Paranormal Intuitives- it's a really small group, we are all Reiki Masters and Reiki Practitioners. We have formed to help people who have paranormal activity in their house and have been unable to get rid of it. Hopefully, as we educate people about this subject, the need for someone to come in and cleanse your home will at least lessen. Should someone need a cleansing, we will first make an initial visit, during whiih we will talk to you about the activitiy you are experienceing. This is important, because it gives us a clearer idea of what is going on, and what we are dealing with. We then will do an assessment of the space (house or office, or whatever space you are concerned about) and gather as much information as we can. We will then sit with you and decide on a plan. It may be that it is something that is easily cleansed and we can just advise on how to proceed , or it may be a bit more complicated. In which case we will make a second visit to your home or office and perform the cleansing for you. If you have any questions about any of this, I do believe there is a place to comment- and I will be very happy to answer any questions you may have.

Reiki healing for animals and children

Posted on January 18, 2019 at 12:25 AM Comments comments (0)
I have been asked several times if Reiki works for animals and children- and of course, the answer is YES! When I first started my Reiki practice, it was from my home, and I noticed right away the animals were drawn to the energy. They consistantly would just come into the room from where ever they had been, and lie under the table. After the client left the table, they would jump up and lie there until it was time to put the table away. I also noticed if I was working on a family member with a chair session, they would also come into the room and lie as close as possible. Young Children and animals are very open to energy, and tend to sense it right away. When working with animals, I would try to choose a time when your cat or dog or whatever is resting or sitting quietly- this is the perfect time- BTW, if you have not learned Reiki, you can still provide energy work. You may want to start by rubbing your hands together vigorously for a few minutes. The second, and probably most important step, is to set your intention. Another words, think about what it is you are trying to do. So, just set your intention to bring healing to the cat or dog, or whatever that animal is. You then want to visualize healing energy coming through you and out of your hands and into the animal. You can place your hands on the animal or directly in front of, or above. It pretty much works the same way with children. You don't want to try to give them Reiki or any other type of energy healing when they are active. So, you need to pick a quiet time. If you have not been attuned to Reiki, use the steps listed above. Keep in mind that not only are children and animals drawn to Reiki, and are very open to it- they will let you know when they are done. As you are doing Reiki or other energy work, you will notice the animal becomes very relaxed and quiet and may even fall asleep. Children react much the same. Their little bodies will relaxed, they may get a bit sleepy. You will know when the session needs to end, because they will simply move away from you. Again, this is true of both children and animals. The amount of time the Reiki session lasts will vary, but for the most part, it is usually much shorter for a child than it is an adult. I do believe that is because they are so open to the energy and they absorb it quickly. They tend to not have the same blockages as adults have.

Energy Shift

Posted on August 14, 2018 at 2:05 PM Comments comments (0)
I really do believe there has been a substantive shift in my energy. Maria from Spirit Point Acupuncture worked with me yesterday. That session was really awesome...I could really feel energy moving through my body. I think what stood out most at the time was this feeling of almost an ache, but very dull that moved from right to left across my abdomen, right around the surgical site....when I asked about it, Maria confirmed that was energy moving. So, this was the first time I really felt it there....and I was feeling it everywhere else as well. It was also extremely relaxing. As things turned out, I went to sleep around midnight, but, slept through the night until around 6:30 this morning. I did get up once to use the bathroom, but am happy to report I went right back to sleep! This is probably the second or third time this has happened. But, the sleep was much more peaceful - and I didn't wake up tense and sore. That is also a big improvement. The Home Health nurse was out to see me today. She is really very nice, her energy is good- caring, practical- she truly does things and discusses things that are actually helpful and that is so refreshing! When she comes it doesn't feel like an intrusion, and she doesn't talk at me. She really engages and is open and really listens. Like I said, refreshing! So now, I am focused on getting to that point where I can get back to work.... This is going to take a bit of time, but I am hoping not too much. Financially, if I stay home too much longer I will be screwed, and while probably not impossible, it will become extremely difficult to meet financial obligations. Medical care in this country is a total sham- but that would be a whole other blog.....and since this is the first blog I have done, I need to focus on this! I really am just ready to move forward and begin working toward returning to work......but here's how this works...I still have not heard anything about when the PET scan is scheduled for, the portacath insertion is not scheduled untill September 4th, and the next appointment with the oncologist is apparently not for chemo, but for chemo teaching. Everything seems to be moving so slowly, at times it makes me crazy. I really do need to get this moving along. The only thing I can do, and I say this all the time, because it truly is the only thing that can be done- is to just keep doing what's in front of me.

Still working on that sleep thing....

Posted on August 13, 2018 at 1:50 PM Comments comments (0)
Last night was yet another night of not really sleeping. I did use that meditation/sleep music I found on You tube.....I did feel relaxed...and I think I may have dozed off several times because time seemed to pass quickly......but if I did, it was for very short periods of time. I finally got out of bed around 1:30 and watched some silly show on Netflix until around 3am. I didn't really feel tired at that point, but figured I needed to try or be a complete zombie today- it took me quite awhile, but I finally fell asleep. Last time I looked at the time, it was just after 3am. I woke at 7am. The odd part of this....odd, but good, is I didn't feel all stressed out about not being able to sleep and when I woke, my body didn't hurt all over. Proving, at least to me, that this body aching, or at least a great deal of it, has to do with the amount of tension I am carrying in my body. So, I am continuing to do meditation an relaxation techniques. They certainly seem to be helping. I did call the surgeon today, they are going to set up a time to insert that lovely portacath...ugghh. Not looking forward to that, but I get it's necessary. I think I have turned some kind of corner, or maybe more like something has, at last shifted? my stress level certainly has-at least today.

Yesterday, I discovered a section of You Tube, that had videos for chakra alignment, and relaxation - those type of things...in and amongst them was one that was titled Cell Rejuvenation and sleep - I actually put it on last night, and I have to say, relaxing was a bit easier than it has been, and I pretty much slept through the night! I woke twice- but was able to go right back to sleep! This was a 8 or 10 hour video, so it pretty much played through the night. I think I may have stumbled onto something that is going to help me with my sleep issues. I certainly hope so. In the meantime, I think I am becoming more aware of what is happening with my own energy. I have to say, it has been pretty much all over the place. I feel much more peaceful today- which is not to say that my monkey brain isn't kicking in every so often as I begin to worry about things I have absolutely no control over. It hits me though, that the reason I tend to worry, is because I know I have to control over it, and I find that a bit scary, to say the least. This really needs to be let go of....and I find that using those videos and sound tracks, allows me to relax, and the relaxing allows me to let go.....even if it's just for the moment. I did do a full self Reiki this morning. And that seems to help a bit with the pain/discomfort I am having. While I am not really in any great amount of pain, my abdomen is at best "heavy" feeling, and becomes very sore and tender to touch. My back becomes very stiff and after being in bed all night, I usually have some stiffness and pain in my lower back and hips. I should clarify there that the back/hip pain or discomfort is not new since the surgery- it has been present for the past few years, but hell, I'm not in my 20's anymore, so what do you want for a quarter?. Anyway, prior to this how blockage/tumor happening, I would wake in the morning, do a self Reiki and find it much easier to navigate the stairs without the usually stiffness- so I know it is helping me now. I do move better and without as much discomfort as I have before the Reiki. Anyway, today is starting out as a relatively good day, and I am grateful for it.

Initial visit with the oncologist

Posted on August 11, 2018 at 5:05 PM Comments comments (0)
Yesterday, I had my first appointment with my oncologist. This was an experience that I really didn't think would be all that earth shattering-and it's not, really..it's just that I noticing things I might not have given a second thought about before. Anyway, just getting there was a trip. The building was pretty large, with many entrances. My niece's husband was kind enough to take me to the appointment, and I have to stop here to say how terrific he and my niece have been since all of this started. He is a gentle, kind soul, and I am grateful to have met and to know him. So we are both wandering around this building, trying to figure out where we are supposed to go, he makes two calls to the actual office. The first call he was given incorrect directions, but the second one turned out okay, and we arrived. The whole sigining in process was almost intimidating, with the person behind the desk asking for insurance cards, ID cards, here- sign this ......a few more questions....and that will be $$ copay. I then follow the nurse to the back and get weighed...then have vital signs taken. She asks a few questions, and says the doctor will be in shortly. I wouldn't exactly call it shortly, but I guess it depends on whose frame of reference you are using. I can say it wasn't horribly long, but it wasn't "shortly"either. So the doc comes in, asks some questions about how things have been going. States the cancer was on/in the rectum but didn't seem to be anywhere else. During my stay at the hospital, there was a day when I was walking, and breathing became very difficult. My oxygen level was down in the 70's (which seriously is NOT good- should be mid 90's - 100.) Turned out, I had both pneumonia and plueral effusion. Plueral effusion is basically fluid trapped between the lung and the Pleural cavity which surrounds the lung-----they ended up removing that fluid - and today the oncologist tells me there were no cancer cells in that fluid. So, that was good news. He then tells me the plan is to have a PET scan to make sure the cancer isn't anywhere else, and then I will have a portacath inserted surgically- after all of that is done, I will start chemo and radiation. Did I have any questions. I said I did have questions about the chemo, and he said we will talk about that later....and that this was going to be easy and not to worry. WOW. Really? I mean, I like the optomism, but seriously? From there is was back out to reception. and she is telling me all these things that need to be set up, one of them being an appointment with the surgeon for the porta cath--- I had to stop her and ask, "Do I make that appointment or do you?". She said I do and then talked about the PET scan and labwork, again, I asked if this was something I needed to schedule. She said no, that they have to go through the insurance first to make sure it was approved. I stood there staring at her as she smiled at me. And a little, tiny thing snapped in me, and i got a little, tiny bit cranky and said, " Ok, I know you do this every day and God only knows how many times. But this is the first time I have every been actually sick with anything serious. This is my first rodeo, so you are going to have to help me out here. Once the insurance has approved the tests and all, are you going to set the appointment or do I?" She then said they would and that I would get a phone call with the date and time. So I thanked her. The point here, in case it's not that obvious, is that although the doctors and nursed and receptionists and med techs do this all the time, I would like them all to try to remember that not everyone knows how this works and may need some assistance in understanding. As a patient, you are uncomfortable just being there in the first place- at this point, you have already been through quite a bit. Chances are, you are not feeling your best, to say the least, and everyone seems to be rushing through everything. You don't know if people are actually seeing you or hearing you and it is not only annoying, but worrisome. I want the people who are going to be working on helping me heal, to HEAR me when I speak. And to SEE me as a person, not "next". On an energetic level. Things are a bit haywire right now. Still not sleeping well, at least not consistantly. Emotions are kind of all over the place. I tear up at the oddest times- sometimes with sadness, sometimes with frustration and sometimes with happiness or gratefulness or love. Sometimes I feel like just snapping at people. (I try not to do that). My Solar Plexus feels bruised. There is no other words for it. It is sore, tender to touch...... I am doing self Reiki daily- sometimes a full Reiki and sometimes just on specific areas. I think it helps. One other thing I wanted to mention- is the way things seem to be in layers. I don't know if I mentioned it before, but lying in bed the other night, wishing I could just go to sleep, I began just paying attention to my breathing without trying to control it. Something I often advise my Reiki clients to do. As I did this, I noticed muscle tension in my neck, shoulders and back. As I was breathing I then used Reiki to relax those muscles and after a few minutes, I did- only to notice that underneath that, was more tension. Again, I was able to relax those muscles, and again, I found anohter layer of tension. This continued until I fell asleep. I have since noticed that with almost everything. The stomach discomfort/pain, emotions....it all seems to be layered. Sometimes I can go through it and relax and calm those layers - some are easier to calm than others.....but I am realizing this is every bit as important to my recovery than the chemo. So, today was not a great day, but it has been okay. I have talked alot of this out with my sister and my friend Maria. Funny, I also recieved an email from my astrologer, talking about how I have kept myself on the sidelines, and the energy of a solar eclipse triggers a strong desire to get into the game more confidently....require me to look at my current limitations and honestly evaluate how I could serve myself much better ....it was just so on target and so timely. So, in a way, this has been a really good day!

Can Reiki assist with recovery following surgery?

Posted on August 10, 2018 at 2:00 PM Comments comments (0)
So, this is a question I am getting first hand information about as I go along. As you may have seen on my service page, and in the upcoming events page- I have not been in the office, nor do I plan to be until around 8/29. Hopefully by then, I will be back and ready to do Reiki Healing sessions and Reiki classes...as well as a few other things I am adding. So, this is where I am now. At home, recovering from intestinal bypass surgery and about to begin chemotherapy for a rectal tumor. I really thought about whether or not to post this- or to say nothing and go on as best I could keeping this to myself, family and a few close friends. But here is the thing- I am a Reiki Master Teacher, a healing facilitator......and what would be a better teaching/learning moment than this? I can just blog my progress as I go- I can include what is going on medically, but also, what is going on emotionally and all the things that go on with this. I have learned there are so many levels. So many little things about going through this that I never really thought about. The stress levels for example- I thought I was really good at meditating and relaxing and letting go. And I was. I will be again, but I am having to work at it right now. Something about going through surgery, and all the complications that seemed to follow in my case has changed things for me...and I am now working on getting back to a more grounded, more relaxed me. There is a constant uncomfortable feeling in my abdomen- Of course, they gave me pain med, and at first that helped. I am doing self Reiki every day now for the past 3-4 days- I know it seems weird, especially for me, right after surgery it really didn't occur to me to do a self Reiki for quite some time- and then at first, when it did- I didnt have the focus - so I would pick a spot that was bothering me the most and do Reiki in that area. My daughter has also been doing Reiki for me and it really does help relax me and relieves the pain and discomfort. The thing is, when the Reiki startes, I notice how tense my body is.....it's unbeliveably tense. And it takes quite some time with the Reiki to relax those tense muscles. I am also receiving Accupuncture from my miracle working friend Maria Mandarino at Spirit Point Accupuncture. This has helped so much with pain relief and also my sleep pattern. Since comming home from the hospital ( I was there for 2 weeks), I have had much difficulty sleeping through the night. I have to say, between the Reiki sessions both with my daughter and the self Reiki and the Accupuncture sessions, my sleeping pattern is improving and I can report at least a few nights of going to sleep and staying asleep. And the issues that are stressing me do not seem as large and unmanageble as they have been seeming. Because I am reminded that there is a reason for all of this to be happening and that I really need to let go and trust that I am exactly where I need to be at this exact moment. I am sure there will be frustrations and difficulties lying ahead- but I am equally sure that with the wonderful support I am experiencing from family and friends, that I will come through this a little bit wiser, and a little better equiped to facilitate healing in others who are going through their own recoveries. Blessings, Toni Krahling, RMT

Reiki I Class

Posted on May 19, 2018 at 9:00 AM Comments comments (0)
Up to this point, I have taught Reiki classes privately, in one on one sessions. On June 14th, I will be doing a Reiki class, hopefully for several people, and I'm really looking forward to it. I guess the question a lot of people would ask, is why should I take a Reiki class? What are the classes like? What are the benefits? There are many reasons why Reiki is beneficial, and why taking the Reiki I class is beneficial as well. I would say first and foremost- Reiki opens you up, it puts you in touch with higher consciousness. It opens your eyes to new possibilities and a new way of looking at the world, and even the universe. Some people have an interest in doing energy work- in helping in the healing process for others- for other people, it is a way of healing themselves. Reiki does both. In the Reiki I class, you will learn what Reiki is, and how it works. You will learn a little bit about the history of Reiki. We then go into energy, what it is.....how to connect with life force energy and how to become aware of your own energy field as well as the energy fields of another. We will also be discussing energy protection. Empathy- how to tell if you are empathic. There are excercises designed to work with energy- and you will learn how to begin healing yourself. I am really looking forward to teaching this class, and I hope you will join me! Namaste, Toni Krahling, RMT
