Happy New Year 2016!

Happy New Year 2016! Best wishes to everyone for the year ahead. I am looking forward to all this year brings. I am happy to be back on the Pacific North West Coast. It truly feels more and more like home every time I come back. I’m excited to be studying toward my diploma in Transpersonal Counseling with Clearmind International Institute, which will keep me here for the next three years. The experiential program is super challenging, but so worth it. It’s going to be another great year of positive changes and personal growth for sure! Creatively, I’m also looking … Continue reading Happy New Year 2016!

And we’re back!

Holy Shamoly! We’re back online! Happy Spring Everybody! After some serious hacking issues, Solinga.ca is back online! I’m super excited to be back on my blog and ready to share some fantastic news with you all! First of all, I’m back in my hometown of Victoria, BC! After a year in Taiwan, I felt like it was time to get back home and spend some quality time with my dear friends and family. Taiwan was a great experience, but nothing can replace the love and community I feel here in Victoria, for which I am so grateful!! Master-Teacher Level Attunement … Continue reading And we’re back!

Just for today…I will do my work honestly

This is one article of a series about living life according to the 5 Principles of Reiki.

Life as a Reiki Master

What’s it like being a Reiki master? Well, this is the first post in a series of posts I will write on the topic of life as a Reiki master. Today, I’m going to outline some of the guidelines I use to help me keep my energy up, so that I can be available as a clean and clear channel for others. Not all Reiki masters will follow or agree with these rules, they are just personal to me, and over time, I’ve found that sticking to these rules works for me. If you’re a Reiki practitioner, or are thinking of getting attuned to Reiki, please feel free to leave a comment. Thanks!

It wasn’t long after I first started getting into Reiki that I knew I would eventually take the master level training. Even with my level 2, I was already seeing the profound shifts that were taking place Continue reading “Life as a Reiki Master”
