I woke up this morning to read accounts of what’s happening in the Standing Rock Indian Reservation with the peaceful protesters and police brutality over the Dakota Access pipeline and this sacred land. If you haven’t heard of what is going on here, please learn more about this. Do note that the U.S. media is not covering this well by not providing full coverage and slanting the events, claiming riots are breaking out among protesters when people are standing in peace. Last night, people gathered with song and prayer over their land as law enforcement deployed water hoses, tear gas and rubber bullets on them. Wondering what you can do? If inspired to take action from your home, you can help HERE.
All the while, millions of people continue to struggle with fear, hate and anger over the results of the U.S. election.
Suffice to say, some deep healing needs to take place on many levels in many places!
I am offering two things today:
One, I realize I haven’t offered a Global Prayer & Reiki Healing Circle in many moons, so I am offering this now. I have decided to keep this Prayer & Healing Circle going continuously, with no end.
This is how it works: Simply contact me by leaving a message on this blog post or contact me privately by clicking HERE. You can request healing for yourself, a loved-one, a pet, your home, work, finances, health, for a situation, your hopes and dreams or for anything else you can possibly image that is positive, healing and loving for everyone involved. Feel free to think big here. I also invite you to send any event that is happening around the world to me for healing.
To this, I am also adding the entire situation around Standing Rock, the current U.S. political landscape, the millions who are struggling, and the environment along with global warming.
This weekend, Amma the Hugging Saint, will be in San Jose, California, and I will be there in meditation with her heightened spiritual energy. I will be sending prayer and healing to everyone and everything in the Global Prayer & Reiki Healing Circle while there, infusing my Reiki with Amma’s powerful, vast, compassionate and incredibly loving energy for deep global and individual healing.
Please send your requests now to be added to the Global Prayer & Reiki Healing Circle. Prayer and healing will begin immediately. I will send Reiki to those in the Circle during my morning and evening meditations beginning today and continuing forward.
Secondly, I simply want to share a message to stay balanced in your own heart and connected to your spiritual center despite what is happening around you. I am reminding you to be in the sacredness of the moment. I cannot express how valuable this is right now.
Thich Nhat Hanh writes in his book, Being Peace:
“The superpowers now have more than 50,000 nuclear warheads, enough to destroy our planet many times. Yet the sunrise is beautiful, and the rose that bloomed this morning along the wall is a miracle.”
Take 1 minute right now. Breathe deeply and simply BE in the current moment. There is beauty and peace found within right where you are.
Here in the U.S., the Thanksgiving holiday is upon us. This is a time to take a moment and count our blessings, focusing on the good and positive things in our lives. Thursday is our official day of gratitude. What are you truly, deeply grateful for? (You are invited to share your gratitude on the comments section of this blog post and fill this page with light!)
Here are some beautiful moments I experienced last weekend, moments I am deeply grateful for…
I hiked around the mountain where I live in Sonoma County. It rained, and the first thing I ever want to do when it rains is get into the forest and walk among the elementals. I count my blessings every day for this magical land. It is from this mountaintop that I send most of my distance Reiki healing energy around the world during my private sessions.
I am grateful for the recent rains that have turned this once summer-blonde mountaintop to emerald green.
I am grateful for the twisted, old, wise, oak trees that thrive on this land.
I am grateful for enchanting forest trails.
I am grateful for troll bridges in magical places.
I am grateful for Faerie portals.
I am grateful for waterfalls and creeks nestled among mossy trees.
I am grateful for rain-kissed ferns that wave me into the forest.
I am grateful for the presence of gentle sentient Beings like cows.
I am grateful for the beautiful reminder to always look up.
I am grateful for the vast beauty that is all around when I take the time and BE with it all.
What are you grateful for?
In loving service, Shana xo
