The IJRS does not have an official Reiki Program. This is the main reason I have elected to search elsewhere offsite for training.

Most of the Reiki programs cost money they I simply cannot afford right now. So, your class/discussion is nice.

Phoenix, I appreciate that. haha. It's nice to have a motivator, though.

Cool about dancing.
Brings to mind the dance team of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. Astaire and Rogers were an unlikely pair. Astaire was balding, less than handsome, and somewhat awkward as an actor. His dancing, however, was poetry in motion, astonishing in its rhythm and technical virtuosity.

Ginger Rogers was beautiful, seductive, and comedic. Her dancing was a notch below that of Astaire, but her playful coquettish style and natural charisma complemented him well. Katherine Hepburn once observed, “He gives her class and she gives him sex.” Together, Astaire and Rogers were greater than the sum of their parts. No other dance team could compare.

And many like to point out, she did all his moves backwards while wearing high heels!

Making your partner 'look good' is alot harder then one would imagine.

Hope you can locate a good reiki instructor in your area. If possible, try to find a couple. The similarities AND differences in instruction can be instructional.

So, you know those days when you just... yuck? haha. Today has been one of those. My plane travels were delayed, then I had a HUGE feeling of darkness while I was on the plane (which I'll explain). And, then I had to wait longer for a shuttle.

MAHHHHH.

Sometimes, Jedi just need to scream for a bit. ;) But, it's alright. I'm fine now. Just tried my patience a lot today. Good test.

Now for the darkness thing...

I don't know how to explain it. But, when I was in the air, I was stricken with thoughts I hadn't felt in years. Weird thoughts of domination and power. I didn't know what to do with them, so I tried to ignore them. But, of course, I'm reading Darth Plagueis... which wouldn't have helped. So, I tried to meditate on it. I was successful in pinpointing exactly what emotions I was feeling: Impatience, annoyance, lust. But, I was unable to figure out what they meant other than where they came from (my annoying day).

Today has been a "getting back into the swing of things" day.

We always have those after holidays. I took my diet, exercise, and classes lightly so not as to put too much stress on me. I will, of course, get harder on myself as the week goes on.

My Jedi Foundation assignment for this week is one I like. I'm supposed to listen to the Force and just meditate on it with no purpose in mind. I think, albeit a basic task, can be rewarding. I am in need of some perspective, and I'd like to see if I can predict where I am going. <-- That sounds terribly vague.

I am tired today, too. I think it was because of the stress and dark energy of yesterday. I am coming off of that well, I think. I am not trying to think too much about it.

"My eyes are red with lust.
My hands are brown with dust.

My heart is heavy with fears.
My feet are worn with tears.

My arms are weak with burden.
The horizon behind will darken.

I will keep walking.
The dawn is stalking."

AYE! Well, this week has been CRAZY. I have been quiet here because I've been sick and resting.

Luckily, I am getting over it, and will be vocal again soon! :) In the meantime, check out my Personal 101 lesson responses. Jackie hasn't responded to any of them. :P But, I'd like to have a discussion on them.

Excellent! I am finished with classes for the semester! Now just for easy finals and I'll be set for the summer. May will be spent getting back in shape from the past month I've been too busy/stressed to focus on it. And, then June/July will be spent catching up on course-work here and really doing hardcore Jedi training.

Planned. Ready. Set. Go.

As promised, May is almost over. And, I have been in training offline. I have begun intensive physical training for the purposes of getting into shape and being ready to fight. I will continue my coursework come June. Glad to see everybody.
