Things I Wish I Were Better At


I wish I could do this, even if, ironically, I would only taste one forkful of the end result.


Then there’s something I’m good at, but am not good at making time for.

Making time to update my scrapbook journal

I wish I was better at writing catchy advertising copy. I’m taking a class, so that at least puts me ahead of cake decorating.

And just when I thought I couldn’t think of anything I wish I was better at, I have three. You see, I’m more about action than wishing.

I was going to keep this post light until last Friday happened. Now, I will add my truest thing I wish I was better at. Finding a way to end poverty. Forever. As in, no one in future generations would know anyone who knew what it was. Because I believe that poverty is at the core of many of society’s biggest problems.

Questions And Answers With A Numerology Beginner


Don’t parents always wonder what their children are absorbing when it comes to our own interests? My daughter was 8 or 9 years old when I discovered numerology. I know she’s heard me spontaneously ask people about numbers in their lives, which I follow up with information to help them make the best of situations.

When we were self-isolating we had the opportunity to collaborate on my upcoming destiny number video series, which gave her lots of experience calculating destiny numbers. I was curious to see what her thoughts were and asked her what she thinks about numerology now that she’s had a closer at one of my favorite topics of the last 18 years.

Q: What was your opinion about numerology before you started researching for the upcoming numerology video release?

A: I knew very little about numerology, but knew it was something that my mom (the woman who writes this blog ;)) is interested in. I didn’t even know what my own destiny number is. I’ve always thought it to be cool and have no negative opinions about it.

Q: What did you learn from your research?

A: I learned about the Pythagorean letter/number grid. Now I can look at a name and calculate a destiny number in minutes (MUAHAHA). I also learned a lot about a couple of celebrities as well.

Q: How would you answer this question: “What is numerology?”

A: Numerology is an ancient study of how to calculate your path in life by using your personal info like your birth name or birthday.

Q: What did you think about your personal numbers?

A: I  LOVE my destiny number because it inspires me. I am an 11 which is one of the master numbers. I am determined to make a difference in the world someday!

Q: Do you recommend numerology for friends who are looking for direction?

A: Yes, most definitely. SUBSCRIBE to The Reiki Cafe and enlighten yourself.

I love it when my daughter turns into my cheerleader, like she did with that last answer.

Thanks to my lovely daughter for bringing your calculating fingers to the project, and for answering my questions!

Did you and your kids work on projects together during self-isolation? Or are you, if you’re still in self-isolation?

Thanks for the time we spent together today!

How I’d Fare In A Zombie Apocalypse

WednesdayBloggingChallenge-copy

I’ve been asked this question before and I’m still not sure what the real answer is. During our global shutdown I discovered that we didn’t have any nearly enough toilet paper reserves and that we had a massive reliance on disposable paper goods. I have solved that now by reading up on the many alternatives. I’m now a step closer to faring better in a zombie apocalypse.

I have a few skills that would come in handy – I can cook, stay calm under pressure, and of course there’s Reiki…

I asked my daughter and her answer was , “Let’s never find out.” I’m inclined to agree with her.

Ok, truth time. I think I’d fare pretty well because I’m adaptable and resourceful. If Reiki counts then we’ll call on the whole Reiki community and there won’t be an apocalypse.

Ha!

This post is part of the Long and Short Reviews Weekly Blog Challenge. Visit their website to see how others think they’ll fare.

How about you? Have you thought about how you’d fare in a zombie apocalypse?

QOTW: Today Is A Gift. What Are You Doing With It?

Today is a gift. What are you doing with it_

One way to chase away sadness and uncertainty is to view each new day as a gift and treat it like one.

Today we spent time with a dear friend – socially distanced, of course, and felt a renewed appreciation for the time spent together in person. We had all sheltered in place or self-isolated for weeks, in our individual efforts to flatten the curve. Simply being in the same physical space was a huge blessing.

Another gift today brought us is watching squirrels and birds, who seem to be as taken with us as we are with them.

How about you?

QOTW – What Is Your Reiki Experience Level?

What is your Reiki experience level_ QOTW

I’m a 4 and have been since 2006 when I received my Level I Reiki training.

One of the best days of my life was when my Reiki Master Teacher asked if I wanted to train to become a Reiki Master Teacher, which I did in 2007.

I fell in love with Reiki, with all the blessings it has brought to my life, and to the lives of so many people I know. I express my gratitude for it every day when I send distance Reiki during meditation, while giving myself Reiki.

If you’re a 1, 2, or 3, here’s my definition of what Reiki is.

If you’re a 4, I’m sending you a virtual high five!

Reiki For Families, Groups, & Couples

We are all in this together. Some of us are working from home while homeschooling our kids and trying to keep it all going while we honestly don’t know what tomorrow will bring. What we know for sure is that Reiki can help us relax. But where are we supposed to go to have that relaxing alone time? Nowhere. Everyone is home. And they need to chill out, too. I have a solution.

QOTW – Does Meditation Help You?

Does meditation help you_

For me, absolutely. I feel calm, centered, and clear. What might change is how long it takes to get there, based on what’s happening in my life. Sometimes I end my meditation in a totally relaxed state. Other times I am recharged and bouncing with excitement. I always feel better after meditation.

Meditation is always combined with Reiki for me, which I know makes meditation more relaxing. I didn’t meditate much, if at all, before I learned Reiki, so I can’t say for sure how much more effective meditation is with Reiki. I’m curious about advanced meditators who incorporate Reiki after years of meditating without it. Hmm. Maybe we’ll have some here who can illuminate with their experience.

Your turn.
