Should we read:

The Complete Book of Numerology


(Available in Kindle and print)

Description: Reveals the underlying meaning (of) the numbers in your life and enables you to understand the connection between your numerological patterns and your degree of abundance, health, and general well-being.



Reincarnation: Past Lives and the Akashic Record by Lois J. Wetzel, MFA (Available in Kindle, print and audible)

Description: In “Reincarnation: Past Lives and the Akaashic Record” Lois J. Wetzel,MFA, has written the long-awaited sequel to her first book, “Akashic Records: Case Studies of Past Lives.” Yet “Reincarnation” takes the reader on a trip to the past like none other. Once again, riveting stories of the past lives of scores of different people are narrated. These lifetimes go back hundreds of thousands of years on Earth, allowing the reader glimpses of long-lost civilizations not contained in our historical record. In this book, unlike the first, the author challenges our ancient history as wrong, giving ample examples of proof we have lived on this swirling ball of minerals for hundreds of thousands of years! She also cites current new information indicating recent scientific discoveries which may support the reality of reincarnation.

Once we know which book is the favorite, we will make an announcement and then give everyone one week to get a copy of the book. We’ll have a page here on the blog where we can share our experiences. Don’t worry if it takes you a while to get through a book, we’ll have the link up for a couple of months.

Is there a book you’d like to read together? Share it with us and we’ll vote on it for the next Buddy Read.

Thank you for the time you spend with us! We appreciate you!

Peace and love,

Reiki FAQs – How Often Should I Have a Reiki Session?

FAQs cropped

For general health maintenance, or smooth sailing, we recommend having a Reiki session once a month if there are no apparent challenges. You feel good most of the time, with only minor or few challenges between sessions.

If there is a challenge, such as grief, an eating disorder, adjusting to big changes in your life, a highly stressful event in your life, or cancer, then once a week would be beneficial.

The numbers change if you are attuned to Reiki. In that case, it’s great to have a session to illuminate what you may be missing in your self-treatments, about once every three months.

Reiki students, practitioners and teachers who are facing a challenge will benefit from monthly, or even bi-weekly sessions, depending on how much the challenge is effecting you.

The reason we were guided to write this post is that we often see Reiki clients, students, practitioners and teachers going without Reiki sessions for years after they complete their classes. Our experience has shown us that our lives are better when we have Reiki regularly, as are the lives of our clients who receive Reiki regularly.

Our intention, always, is to be of service.

Student Spotlight – Elizabeth Hamsher

Cyhndi and I are excited to share our first student spotllight! We’d like you to meet Elizabeth Hamsher, one of my students. Liz speaks of radiating light, and I totally agree that she does. Liz recently taught her first Reiki level I class and started a position as a healer. Congratulations, Liz! The sky is the limit!

     We asked Liz to tell us about her journey into healing. This is her story.

Liz Hamsher

I am quite honored to be a part of The Reiki Cafe’s Student Spotlight. This is such a pleasure and for that I am truly blessed.

     I am a Reiki Master Teacher residing in the beautiful sunny LA area where I radiate the light and heal with love. In addition to Reiki healing, I also work with essential oils as a dōTERRA Wellness Advocate. Through the use of both of these modalities, my life has been magically enriched. With the use of Reiki energy and essential oils in my daily journey, I feel the power of the universe and am content with utter fullness. For that, I am grateful.

     Living as a Reiki healer, my day to day radiates with the purple & white light of constant love. I use Reiki during most moments and with all life that I encounter; with permission of course. By implementing essential oil work alongside my practice, I have taken my spiritual path to a more elevated plane.

      dōTERRA’s oils emit their own frequency and assist with healing the mind, body and soul with a valued holistic approach. Through the use of these enchanting “gifts of the earth,” I have really noticed a transformation! Not only does my physical body feel mighty, strong, and appear healthy, but my metaphysical body is truly connected in ways that feel tangible to life. I no longer go through the motions of living, but am actually linked to life in a more profound way.

      dōTERRA’s essential oils have impacted my life drastically. Their wisdom speaks to my spirit and in return, I love to share the knowledge behind their intelligence.

     I hold workshops weekly explaining dōTERRA in greater detail; from oils, to everyday conscious products that they carry, to all the good that they do around the globe with their co-impact sourcing, and so on. Along with the weekly workshops, I also share the essential oil message with my AromaTouch Technique sessions and articles depicting a greater look into all the possibilities of essential oil usage.

                                                                                                  Mansfield Manor

     My mission on this earth is to heal. I am enthused that Reiki assists me on this voyage and having the oils is just the cherry on top of it all. If you feel drawn to my energy and are curious to learn more about dōTERRA and incorporating essential oils into your life, then please feel free to reach out to me:  I can get you all set up on my mailing list, where I send a couple of emails a month offering more of this juicy information in greater detail.

     I want to thank Gina & Cyhndi for this Student Spotlight praise. I am beyond grateful and thrilled to share my story.

     Peace, Joy, Love, and much Light to you all.

     Liz Hamsher     
     Reiki Master Healer/doTERRA Wellness Advocate

29 Days of Reiki – The Finale

29 Days of Reiki


We’ve heard some wonderful feedback about how 29 Days of Reiki helped people add more Reiki practice into their lives! We are thrilled about that, because that was our intention. In particular, Gina was told that adding Reiki in regularly opened up more time for chakra balancing and meditation, which helped with recovering from an illness and with emotional turbulence. Another practitioner hadn’t thought of adding Reiki into food, drinks, supplements and medications. Yet another found it helped her find an easy way to add more Reiki into her day. Isn’t that awesome!

     Gina had a funny moment in the grocery store during 29 Days. There were eggs on sale, and she is used to picking up a carton to feel the energy of the eggs, as well as to wiggle the eggs. This time when she reached for the carton, she felt her Reiki reach out and put a wonderful shot of Reiki into all of the eggs in the case! Now, she doesn’t want to force Reiki on anyone without their consent, so she added an intention that it could be accepted or rejected.

     Thank you for joining us for 29 Days of Reiki! We hope you had as much fun with it as we did.

     Have you thought of something you’d like to do as a group? If you have, tell us about it. We’d love to hear your great ideas!

As always, we cherish the time that you spend with us!

What Is Reiki?

There could be as many descriptions of what Reiki is, how it works, and even if it works, as there are people to talk about it. What I’m sharing here is my perception and experience with Reiki as a student, practitioner, and teacher. My Reiki experience began in 2005. In 2007 I became a master teacher. I have taught all four of the levels.

Reiki is a relaxing, stress relieving, technique. During a session a client can choose to have conversation, or silence, or something in between. My clients and I typically laugh because it feels so ridiculously good to let go of so many things that were weighing us down.

Reiki can be done anywhere. In health spas, for example, the client usually lies down on a massage table. However, Reiki is not a massage technique. It is a form of energy work, meaning that it works on the energy that makes up the mind, the body, and the spirit. That’s why Reiki is as effective on the phone, or at a distance without direct contact, as it is in person. Some clients feel better if you place a hand on them while they’re receiving Reiki in person. Others don’t like to be or need to be touched at all. It sounds mystical, doesn’t it?  Two of Gina’s long-term clients shared their experiences with distance Reiki.  Feel free to click on the link if you’d like to read what they said.

You can read about studies verifying the efficacy of Reiki here:
If you’d like to read a history of Reiki, follow this link:

What is Reiki good for? Literally anything. If you consider that stress is the cause of most problems, then the relief of the stress will leave you feeling better. I have to say that if I hadn’t experienced it for myself, I’d be a skeptic.

What happens during a Reiki session is this: your practitioner will help you into a comfortable position. Sessions typically last for one hour, though they can be shorter or longer. You may be touched on your head, hands, stomach, legs, knees, and feet. Or, as I mention above, not at all. Your practitioner may stay in one place and simply place their hands over you. What the client feels is anything from relaxation to a deep sleep.

Here’s a sample of a Reiki treatment by William Rand of the International Center for Reiki Training.

So, in summary, Reiki is a relaxation technique. Ideally the client goes into the session feeling heavy, upset, confused, etc. and comes out of it feeling refreshed, healthy, and energized.

We have openings for Reiki sessions and classes. See our Menu of Services post for more information about scheduling and costs.

Meet Your Guides Sample Report

This is an actual reading, but the name of the client has been changed.

Good morning, Guides.
A: Good morning.
Q: How many guides are currently working with Rose?
A: Five. There has been a recent shedding of the guides with this last shift that took place 3 days ago. Rose may be feeling just a little bit naked right now.
Q: What are the guide’s names?
A: Father Time, Nero, Claudius, Jeremy, and Ginger.

Q: Good morning, Father Time, it is wonderful to speak with you again. Can you tell me how long you have been working with Rose?
A: Since the beginning of time. Hello, little one. It is wonderful to see you as well.
Q: What is your purpose in Rose’s life?
A: Ha ha. Guidance of course. Specifically guidance in regards to financial matters, affairs of the heart, and music.
Q: How can Rose get closer to you?
A: By calling on me when the moon is bright. We both like the night. She can contact me simply by calling my name and talking to me as a normal conversation. I will answer her in ways that she will understand. This is a common and easy exercise for her.
Q: What messages do you have for Rose at this time?
A: One that she is likely tired of hearing, that time will bring everything together as it always does. Also, I would like to see her releasing people and situations that cause her anxiety and stress. She knows which ones they are. Please assure her that there will be support for her to do so. Tell her that I love her very much and that I was her father in a past life. She is very special to me.
Gina: Thank you, Father Time.

Q: Good morning, Nero. How are you today?
A: Today, what’s a day? Ha ha, just kidding. I’m in a wonderful mood today.
Q: I’d like to ask you about how long you have been working as a guide for Rose.A: Oh, about 6 years now, I guess, more or less. (Canadian pronunciation of about).
Q: What is your purpose in Rose’s life?
A: You mean, what am I doing here? I’m having a lot of fun though there is work involved. I help Rose with those deep dark places that she doesn’t want to look at or anyone else to see. I do my best to bring her funny situations when I know something is up so that she can enjoy her life more fully. I help her face her fears whenever possible.
Q: How can Rose get closer to you?
A: If you mean how can Rose get more and clearer guidance from me I would suggest a pendulum. She can ask me simple yes or know questions. Did you see my joke? This is how I guide her, with little jokes. She can pick it out at the store and I will help her find just the right one. It will be dark blue, likely.
Q: Do you have any messages for Rose?
A: Yes, and it is very timely because Rose is purging a lot of her past right now, and there are people in the past that may try to show up again and interfere with that possibility. I would like to urge her to have firm boundaries when it comes to those people. Let them know when she will and won’t do, and to be guided by the assurance that she has all of the divine support anyone could ever want. Her needs will be taken care of.
Gina: Thank you, Nero. I appreciate you talking with me today.
Nero: You’re welcome.

Q: Good afternoon, Claudius. How are you today?
A: I’m fine, just fine, thank you.
Q: Can you tell me how long you have been working with Rose?
A; I have been with Rose for 6 years, on and off. She doesn’t always need me because the role I play in her life is one that simply comes and goes.
Q: What role do you play in Rose’s life?
A: Hmmm. Well, when she is feeling down I find ways to cheer her up. You could say that Rose has a host of joy guides to help her through the rough spots. She gets to those points where she is feeling strong and then she doesn’t need us so we wait until she needs us again.
Q: How can Rose get closer to you?A: Rose can get closer to me by remembering the funny times when things seem down. I will then guide her to more situations that will provide a sense of levity to continue to pull her up out of those feelings.
Q: Do you have any messages for Rose?
A: Oh, yes, I’m glad that you asked. I’ve been wanting to tell Rose how proud I am of the way she has been handling adversity lately. She is such a trooper! She hardly calls on me at all and then when she does we have so much fun. What I see coming for us is that Rose won’t need me anymore but that we will just be great friends who have a good time together.
Gina: Thank you for taking the time to talk with me today, Claudius. You make me smile.
Claudius: You’re welcome. You make me smile, too.

G: Good afternoon Jeremy, how are you today?
A: I am well, Gina. Thank you.
Q: I’d like to ask you about how long you have been with Rose?
A: Well then, go ahead and ask. Ha ha. No, but seriously, I have been with Rose for 6 years.
Q: What is your role in Rose’s life?
A: I hadn’t thought of it that way before. Let me see. I’m there when she has to make tough decisions and little ones. I never leave her really. We do lots together like listen to music and shop. We like to be girly together. I think my function is to be a friend she can count on.
Q: How can Rose get closer to you?
A: Hmmm. I guess by calling on me when she feels lonely. I will guide her to something that we feel good about doing together. I think she has seen me in her dreams before. I take several forms, sometimes as a dagger and other times as a shoe. I also warn her if danger is coming.
Q: Do you have any messages for Rose?
A: Yes, I do. Keep your chin up sweetie. Things will be just fine. Remember that all of this is just temporary and mostly for entertainment. I will always be with you. You can be secure in that.
Gina: Thank you, Jeremy.
Jeremy: Bye now, Gina.

Gina: Good afternoon, Ginger, how are you?
A: Meow. Fine. <stretch, Ginger is a cat>
Gina: I’d like to talk to you today about how long you have been in Rose’s life.
A: Okay. <yawn>
Q: You appear to have been taking a nap?
A: Oh, yes. It was wonderful.
Gina: Thank you for taking the time to speak with me today.
A: No problem. <stretches> Go ahead.
Q: How long have you been guiding Rose?
A: About 10 years.
Q: What role do you play in her life?
A: That sounds too formal. I just look out for her. I’m like a watch cat. <strikes a hunter pose>
Q: <laughs> How can Rose get closer to you?
A: <laughs> She just did. All she has to do is ask. <meow, tail switch. Ginger is playing with a mouse.
Q: Do you have any messages for Rose?
A: Yes, I do. Rose, girlfriend, let’s get frisky. Let’s take some risks. I can help you figure out how to have a good, fun, time without incurring drama. No drama, Mama! I’ll try to flash you a mental image of a cat just before I give you a suggestion of ways to break up the doldrums. Sound good?
Gina: That’s wonderful Ginger. Thank you for taking time away from your nap to speak to us.
Ginger: My pleasure.
