Dealing With Negative Thinking - Reiki Style!

Next time you have a moment of doubt, worry, or fear. Stop and take a step back from the situation. Where are these thoughts really coming from? Is it a place of love and truth where your Higher Self resides or is it your Ego?

Acknowledge that these thoughts exist and detach yourself from them saying - "You do not define my experience, that is for my own choosing."

Then send Reiki to the problem area, and yourself (if you desire). Smile happily to yourself and thank Spirit/Source/the Universe that you were given this opportunity to heal this issue.

Tarot Code of Ethics

This is also something you'll find on the healing center's website - but I just had to put it up here to share with those who follow me *_*. A great read I think for anyone interested in reading tarot professionally (or at all really). I have my own amendments to it at the bottom, as per my credentials and beliefs.

Diane Wilkes’ Tarot Code of Ethics

I primarily use the tarot as a multi-level instrument to assess and explore your personal and professional concerns. Once we have delved into all aspects of your issue, we can determine potential actions and belief patterns that can serve as transformative, positive solutions.

My focus is not predictive, but I can’t deny that the tarot is an oracle, as well as a tool for self-assessment and self-help. My method of reading is to concentrate on interpreting the cards, based on my years of study and my intuition. Any forecasting derives naturally from that point of convergence.
We’re all blessed with free will, and a tarot reading provides a studio portrait of the future, based on matters remaining the same as they are at the time of the reading. If you don’t like the photography, you have the power to redo the picture to your personal satisfaction.

Tarot is a symbolic language. Each card has multiple potential meanings, depending on the surrounding cards. The Death card (No. 13) does not mean actual physical death. I translate the language of tarot, and work with you to achieve clarity, and a sense of preparedness and confidence, to face whatever issues have arisen. My role is to empower those who come to me for tarot readings, not scare you or assure of my “powers”.

I am a tarot reader, not a doctor, lawyer, or financial advisor. I recommend that you seek professional advice on any medical, legal, or financial matters. I will never offer to remove a curse or perform a magic spell for money. I urge you to avoid any tarot reader who offers these services to you. Scam artists reflect badly on legitimate, ethical tarot readers. I urge you to use common sense when choosing either.

It is my pleasure and my responsibility to treat every seeker with warmth, sensitivity, and compassion. I hold your tarot reading, and any information you reveal, in the strictest confidence. I am not entitled, nor do I want, to judge your past, present, and/or future actions. Any decisions that you choose to make based on the reading are your responsibility. Please do not see me as an oracle. The tarot is an oracle; I am the human interpreter, and as such, fallible. The tarot cards, like the planets, impel. They do not compel. You are the one who holds your future in your hands.


Now though this code of ethics is wonderful I do feel that I need to alter it because some of my own experiences and guidance follow otherwise. Therefore I have included this amendment to clarify for my own personal practice for those people who seek my counsel so that they are aware of how I work.

A few amendments to this code of ethics…

I am a counselor, minister, health & wellness professional. And while fallible, I consider myself thorough enough to get my clients the right answer the first time (but as is mentioned with Chaos Theory & Medicine some trial and error may be required!) I will refer you to others should my expertise and ability to handle a certain subject not meet a certain standard, and any advice on a subject is given with my own experience and training involved (eg I will let you know whether something is a personal or professional opinion, etc).

As a “Witch for Hire” I also do some spell or ritual work and consultation for the performance thereof. I am a teacher, so I guide. As a counselor I listen and provide alternative viewpoints and solutions. As a minister I can help you nurture your spiritual body to allow you to bolster yourself in times of need - the times when there is no one available and the times when personal strength and faith are most important. However, though I may intermingle these services depending on a client’s need, I operate independently with each of them. When I am advising on spell work I am telling you as Witch not Oracle. You may inquire as to the outcome of a spell via a tarot reading - but that is another matter altogether.

Regardless of my station. Due to my expertise and/or experience in a given field or with a subject I am here to offer you a service.

Crystal Use & Care at Home

I just put up this article on the healing center's webpage, but I also wanted to make it available here too for those who are following via my blog or frequent it more!


Crystal Use & Care at Home
Rev. Naware, RMT
20 May 09

Clear crystal in a manner that is appropriate with the type of care it can receive.
Sit and meditate with crystal. How does it feel in your hands? What thoughts come to mind? How does it make you feel ? (Good, Bad, Energized, Drained?)
Read over information on the crystal. Take and compare notes to your own personal reflections.
Charge your crystal for its specific healing purpose (may be more than one.)
Place crystal where needed.
Clear after use. You may wish to re-attune the crystal, but this is not required. Unless you will be changing what it will be used for.

Anytime a crystal changes hands however, it needs to be at least cleared and possibly re-attuned. Be sure to check for compatibility with the stone (see Step 2).

Your Life is What You Make of It...

My love and compassion to you all!

But even I have limitations. I cannot change your life for you, anymore than I can change our outlook. As a healer I am a teacher and a guide. A helping hand and a listening ear. But I am not you. I can show you a vast array of tools that you can use to move forward and go above and beyond your wildest dreams. But you must use them.

I have known, personally, many folks in my own life who seem always down. Whose lives are "always hard" and filled with "can'ts". And though my heart goes out to those with struggles, I know from my own that the only one to look to for their source is the self. Ego drives us with falsehoods and promises, lies and deceit. Causing and nurturing fear, worry, and doubt. All in the name of preserving itself.

How could anything that promotes such feelings be good? Is that really acting in your highest good, or anyone's for that matter? It certainly is not.

So cast off your chains and stop being a slave to Ego. Turn your back to the morose clouds, and bitter sentiments. Allow the sun to stream across your face, reminding you it is a new day, a better day and more will follow - if you just allow them.

You have every ability to change your life, to welcome the magnificent and you can, if you but "will".

In the words of "The Secret" 's Creative Process: Ask, believe, and receive!

Heart Health

Often times we undergo pain in our heart because of things we do to ourselves. Negative thoughts and emotions are like toxins to our hearts and can lead to dis-ease and injury to the heart.

Some ideas to help you keep your heart healthy...

Carry Rose Quartz or Rhodochrosite around with you. You may wear either of these over the heart chakra (located over your physical heart).

Think loving thoughts.

Give yourself a hug, a really big one.

Think of all of the reasons why you're a great person.

Meditate on unconditional love, gentleness, and acceptance.

Visualize the Celtic tree symbol for Birch/Beith over your heart. One of Birch's qualities is gentleness.

Cultivate an awareness of how you act and what it says about how you feel about yourself.

Being too hard on yourself and having unrealistic expectations do not strengthen your heart. Practicing random acts of kindness, giving a hug to someone in need, and demonstrating "loving" actions just because allow us to more fully open our hearts and allow the loving energy of the Universe to flow in, further strengthening and healing our hearts.

And remember, You are great and wonderful, and the world wouldn't be the same without you in it! Thank you for being you!
