Ok. I did the affirmations and the exercises. Two things…
#1: I like the swirling/brushing/sponging on the hands and am going to try this in teaching some of my beginner-level Reiki students this. It seems to stimulate the same type of responses that one needs when feeling the output of energy. Also, because it stimulates the energy in this way, it may help some people to “know” that the energy is there when they have a hard time feeling it.
#2: The breathing technique where you inhale “astral” and exhale “projection” seems to break the flow of the session. It doesn’t feel “harmonic” to me, but that could just be a personal preference. I feel like the first word, astral, is great, but I tried using the word “journey” in place of projection, and it seemed to fit better.
Dreams: Last night, I dreamt that I was in a huge board room. Jax, Inari, Jade, JBar, Brandel, Lee, Kena, Suzi, Master Adana, Moonshadow, Betony, Shark, Ben, and a whole lot of other people were there. There was also a ring of people standing along the walls with a sword in their hands. One of those people was Danny. They were in the guardian pose of ritual magick circles. Who knows what that was all about, but it seemed as if they were acting in a guardian fashion for this meeting.
Now, in this meeting, we were all signing documents and stamping this seal of approval on them. Each “mini-group” had a seal of approval. (I think I dreamt this due to the discussion of the knight title at the JRC.) Still, I remember that Jade had a very pointed looking seal and stamped the paperwork, and then passed it on to me. I was about to stamp the papers with a seal that looked very swirly and in my opinion, seemed to be prettier than the rest of the seals.
I turned around and asked a group of people if they were for certain that the documents met their approval, and they all said yes, so I started to stamp the papers, but I woke up instead.
What a boring dream. :wookie
