Reiki Basic Training – FAQ

Reiki Basic Training – FAQ: Your Questions Answered

The Japanese word Reiki describes different types of healing and spiritual work. 

   REI is interpreted as meaning divine knowledge or spiritual consciousness. 

        Ki is life force and that energy which permeates all living things. 

Therefore, Reiki is spiritually guided life force energy that is non-religious, yet supports a lifestyle that incorporates the Reiki Ideals of Dr. Usui and the individuals need for their own spiritual growth.

The principles or Reiki Ideals are as follows:

  • Reiki is a vibrational or subtle energy therapy, facilitated by light touch or no physical contact.
  • The World Health Organization, (WH0), has recognized Reiki as an alternative therapeutic modality.
  • The National Institute of Health Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM), classified Reiki as a biofield modality, affecting energy fields that surround and penetrate the human body. It works in harmony with allopathic medicine and other complementary health techniques. It can be used to enhance other techniques according to the highest good of the client.

Reiki Training Tips for After Your First Degree Attunement ~

#1 Begin with Self-healing.

Great benefits await those who utilize Reiki self treatments in their regular self-care routine. Daily treatments (anywhere between 5 – 25 minutes) are ideal, especially for those who may be experiencing toxic overload, burnout or high stress. During a treatment, Reiki has its own innate intelligence and will go where it’s needed.

#2 Be Open to Receive Healing and Proper Instruction.

Those who have been properly Attuned to the First Degree of Reiki Basic Training have a Reiki Guide who is there to help you learn how to use Reiki for yourself using your unique gifts and talents.

#3 Remember to Ask for Help.

I think the saying is, “riding on the wings of angels” and that’s just what we’re doing when we get our first Attunement and allow ourselves to accept help from our Reiki Guides and Teachers. 

It’s a good idea to regularly ask for help from enlightened beings and you can easily do that with #17 Divine Grace from Soul Prayer Charts.

Remember that Angels and your Reiki Guides respect your free will and will not ever try to force you into anything! Therefore, if you want their help, ask for it.

#4 Make a Commitment to Developing Your Highest Good.

What might be possible if you were to make a new agreement with your Higher Self that you are ready, willing and able to receive genuine help and support in accordance with your highest good? I suggest that your agreement include being respectful in your requests and appreciative towards those who help you.

Old Soul

Most importantly, make a Soul Contract with yourself to be kind and patient with yourself and to get more comfortable about asking for genuine help as you continue your Reiki journey. Would you be willing to sign your name to a contract like that?

#5 Remember to Follow Your Soul’s Intention.

The Intuitive Learning Circles have been developed by Rheanni Lightwater through Reiki to assist in the basic training and effective transmission of Reiki energy for self-healing and to others through distant healing. They can be especially helpful in clearing away those blockages to intentions and trusting your inner guidance.

Emulate the gentle and patient Tree Sloth. Slow down and gaze softly at her Circle and ask yourself:

Develop Determination with Jaguar

Develop Determination and Courage with Jaguar

Develop Determination with Jaguar

If you have chosen Jaguar to be your Guide…

“Your creativity and special talents will benefit from an influx of courage and trust in yourself. It’s time to stand tall and unflinching, regardless of what others are saying…

Ask:  Are you accessing open-hearted courage? In what ways do you need to protect yourself and stand up for what you believe in? Reclaim your courage, strength and determination and apply it to your true heart’s desire.” ~ Gifts from the Rainforest by Rheanni Lightwater

Note: Some Games require a password. Full access to Animal Totem Tracks is through Paid Membership in our Learning Community! Coming soon – 2024

What Process Is Best for Me – Right Now?

Balancing with Plants SpiritsMany of you have asked,  “There’s so many Games and Exercises here in the Intuitive Learning Circle – how do I know which one is right for me?

Since we’re here to help you develop your intuition, it’s only natural that we would come up with a simple & fun way to decide – using your intuition!

First of all, it’s true that we have quite a few self-healing offerings, so below you’ll find a list of games that pertain to Developing Determination through the Jaguar.

Jaguar Medicine

There are 5 categories to choose from ~

I: Cosmos
II: Family
III: Environment
IV: Livelihood and
V: Self 

Each category has a selection of games listed underneath which are numbered 1, 2 and 3.

The first step is to take a moment and think about what’s going on for you and then look at Jaguar Medicine and ask your heart:

“What category would be most useful for me to look at now?”
Once you have the category number, ask yourself:
“Which number in that category represents the best self healing process for me right now – or is the best place to start?”

Remember to take the very first number that comes to you, because that is your Inner Wisdom speaking or your intuition. If more than one number comes up, write them all down in the order they came to you.
Once you have your number, scroll down the list and check out that process. You might be surprised at what you chose, because intuition doesn’t always makes sense at first. However, I suggest that you trust your first response and explore the exercise anyway. See if it pertains to your situation and feels right.
This is the intuitive way to determine which exercise is best for you right now!

Suggestion: Early on in your journey with Jaguar, go through Open Your Heart and Make Friends to develop a truly co-operative relationship!

Of course, if you want, you can always get help with Rheanni if you want more private coaching. Her contact info can be found at the bottom of this page…

Navigate Reversals During Retrograde

What To Do About Reversals During Retrograde.

Guidance from Kuan Yin 

Kuan Yin - Advanced Chakra Healing to Navigate Reversals During RetrogradeEver since 2009, Kuan Yin has offered her assistance through specially chosen Transformation Games, Mind Exercises and Self-care Formulas to help us navigate whatever changes were required. As a time-honored and respected guide in the Healing Arts, her aim has always been to help us stay calm and navigate the chaotic transition from the old paradigm into the New Paradigm with clear minds and hearts.

Now, she is helping us to adjust to the reality of living in the new energy through the I Ching Guidance of Hexagram #17 ADAPTING. Unfortunately, random energy reversals during retrograde periods like DETERIORATION are likely to recur frequently.

Learn more about how Kuan Yin advises us to navigate in the energy of Air in Difficult Beginnings>

Advanced Chakra Healing and Clearing ~

Recommended Mind Exercise and Transformation Games to Help you adjust and Keep You Moving with the Flow In the New Paradigm, Rather than Against it.

Environmental imbalances and instability have affected us in so many ways that we are just beginning to understand. Because the chakras react to and reflect environmental factors, it’s important that we pay attention to how well they are functioning and proactively rebalance them when needed.

Navigate Reversals During Retrograde

The biggest issue during this  period is the tendency for our subtle energy systems to get overloaded or bogged down by destructive energies. As a result, your mood could inexplicably change. Primary or Secondary Chakras might  shut down completely or suddenly start running in reverse. This instability can make it very difficult to remain grounded, just at a time when you need grounding the most.

Add to that the increase in violence, chronic health imbalances aggravated by climate and the overwhelmed state of our collective mental/emotional health and you’ve got a serious situation that should not be ignored.

For that reason, Kuan Yin has asked me to continue this format so that I can post Mind Exercises and Transformation Games that will help you deflect negative energies and address instability, reversals and toxic patterns in each of the Primary Chakras. It’s my hope that they can help you keep your chakras more stable and moving in the right direction.

Take a moment and integrate some of the help she’s offering to help us adapt. Here are her suggested intentions:

“I close down negative energy channels from the past.” 

“I tap into the beneficial flow of energy now available through the Element of Air.”


Lets begin with the Root Chakra and move up:

1st Chakra - Root Chakra Balancing

“Our root chakra is red and governs the physical body, our instincts and the assumptions we have about life. It’s located at the very base of the trunk of your body.

In Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs the Root needs are physiological – air, food, water, shelter, warmth, sex, sleep and having adequate methods of communication.

Gaze softly at the Root Chakra Key above and then ask yourself:

“Are my physiological needs being met? Am I giving them the proper priority, position and attention for my life to be in balance?”

Do I need chakra balancing here? if so, what would help me to bring my Root Chakra in balance?

Kuan Yin wants to help you clear karmic patterns of abuse that affect your sexuality and bodily autonomy> 

Next up is the Second Chakra (also known as the Spleen Chakra):

2nd Chakra - Spleen Chakra Balancing“The second energy center is referred to here as the spleen chakra because it is deeply connected to our emotions, digestion and immunity. Its color is orange and is located 2-3 inches down from the navel.

In Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs the second level needs are safety oriented – protection from the elements, security, order, law, stability and freedom from fear.

Gaze softly at the Second Chakra Key above for a minute or so. Then ask yourself:

“Are my safety and security needs being met? Am I giving them the proper priority, position and attention for my life to be in balance?”

Do I need chakra balancing here? if so, what would help me to bring my 2nd Chakra in balance?

Kuan Yin suggests that you create an internal and external space of safety for yourself>

Continue by addressing the Third Chakra needs:

3rd Chakra - Solar Plexus Chakra Balancing“The solar plexus chakra is the center of who we are and who we think we are, so it’s fitting that its color is a bright yellow and is located in the solar plexus.

In Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs the third level needs include love and belongingness needs – friendship, intimacy, affection and love from work group, family, friends, and romantic relationships.

Gaze softly at the Third Chakra Key above for a minute or so. Then ask yourself:

“Are my love and belongingness needs being met? Am I giving them the proper priority, position and attention for my life to be in balance?”

Do I need chakra balancing here? if so, what would help me to bring my Third Chakra in balance?

Kuan Yin wants to support you as you deal with emotional shock>

The Heart Center and Basic Balance:

Fourth Chakra - Heart Chakra Balancing“Our heart chakra is the bridge between our bodies and the spiritual world. It is where our thoughts and beliefs about love meet the physical expression of it.

In Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs the fourth level needs include esteem needs – achievement, self-love, independence, status, dominance, prestige, self-approval, self-respect and respect from others. 

Gaze softly at the Fourth Chakra Key below for a minute or so. Then ask yourself:

“Are my compassion and esteem needs being met? Am I giving them the proper priority, position and attention for my life to be in balance?”

Do I need chakra balancing here? if so, what would help me to bring my Fourth Chakra in balance?

Kuan Yin wants to help you open your heart to Joy so you can let go of perfectionism>

Consider the Fifth Chakra and the Power of Your Word: 

Fifth Chakra - Throat Chakra Balancing“The energy of the throat chakra is about what you put out into the world – having a voice. It’s about speaking your truth and is blue in color, as in ‘true blue’.

In Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs the fifth level needs include cognitive needs such as knowledge, meaning, expression, self-mastery and self-awareness.

Gaze softly at the Fifth Chakra Key above for a minute or so. Then ask yourself:

“Are my cognitive needs being met? Am I able to ask for what I need and straightforward in my requests? Am I giving them the proper priority, position and attention for my life to be in balance?”

Do I need chakra balancing here? if so, what would help me to bring my Fifth Chakra in balance?

Kuan Yin encourages you to open up the communication channel for INNOCENCE>

The Sixth Chakra and the Power of Your Perception:

Sixth Chakra - Third Eye Chakra Balancing“The third eye chakra contains the energy of insight and wisdom. Located in the center of the forehead just above the eyebrow, this chakra is associated with the color purple.

In Maslow’s Hierarchy Needs the sixth level needs include aesthetic needs – the appreciation of and search for beauty, balance and form, etc. Kuan Yin would add the need need for spiritual insight and understanding.

Gaze softly at the Sixth Chakra Key above for a minute or so. Then ask yourself:

“Are my needs for creativity and spiritual understanding being met? Am I giving them the proper priority, position and attention for my life to be in balance?”

Do I need chakra balancing here? if so, what would help me to bring my Sixth Chakra in balance?

Kuan Yin urges you to detach from emotional drama and projections that are stressing you out>

The Seventh Chakra and Self-actualization: 

Seventh Chakra - Crown Chakra Balancing“The crown chakra is our connection to spirit. This is the energy center that connects us with divine inspiration. Its color is white as it contains all things and it can cast a golden ring when in states of ecstasy.

In Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs the seventh level needs include self actualization  needs – realizing personal potential, self-fulfillment, seeking personal growth and peak experiences.

Gaze softly at the Seventh Chakra Key above for a minute or so. Then ask yourself:

“Are my self-actualization needs being met? Are my fulfillment needs blocked in any way? Am I taking action and giving them the proper priority, position and attention for my life to be in balance?”

Do I need chakra balancing here? if so, what would help me to bring my Seventh Chakra in balance?

Kuan Yin wants you to keep your mind clear when lies are everywhere>

In conclusion, Kuan Yin recommends that you take the time to understand and adapt to all the changes going on.

Whether you want to prepare for improved health, career, finances or relationships, your mind and the whole experience will be much happier if you have an ongoing practice that will help you adapt and nurture yourself.

Come From a Grounded Place

How to ADAPT and Come From a Grounded Place in the New Paradigm ~

Many of us are aware that how we experience our environment has a lot to do with how well we’re feeling and how easy or difficult it is to come from a grounded place. That’s especially so when we need to communicate or move forward in a genuinely productive way! The energy of the Cosmos has changed radically and we are being called to ADAPT to a New Paradigm based on common ground.

The purpose of this Mind Exercise is to activate the beneficial energies of the New Paradigm in your environment. Connecting with these energies will help you organize effectively and from a grounded place.

If you’ve noticed any of the following situations in your environment, try this exercise from Navigating Compassion Fatigue, an online resource from our Soul Oriented Solutions series –

SOS - Soul Oriented Solutions
SOS – Soul Oriented Solutions

If you feel like you or your environment are:

  • Ungrounded or scattered
  • Overwhelmed by too much stuff
  • Disorganized and confused
  • Unstable, unsafe or explosive
  • Juggling too many things
  • Unproductive – going around in circles
  • A magnet attracting negative energies.

Directions: Confirm this is the best formula for you with the SOS Symbol.

Find a quiet place to sit in the center of your space, where you won’t be disturbed for about twenty minutes. Make sure both of your feet are firmly planted on the floor and that the soles of your shoes wouldn’t prevent you from grounding well.

Begin by meditating on this symbol that will help you organize your mind around the structure for Creating Common Ground.

Come from a Grounded Place

Then, go through the exercise by reading each message and then gazing gently at the Circle or chart that goes with it for a minute or so. A longer or shorter time may be necessary. Let yourself breathe and relax as much as possible. Don’t worry if the images move around or change in any way. That just means the Circles are working to help you and your environment to come into balance with each other and ground.

Some emotions may come up and when that happens always visualize the heaviness moving up, out and towards the Light.

You may intuitively feel that an object in the space should be moved or removed completely. Trust your instincts. Give yourself permission to let go of anything that could keep you stuck in the old paradigm.

Mind Body Integration

Mind Body Integration - Self-care for lossFor best results, look at each symbol both crossed over the midline of your body and uncrossed so that the correction is more complete.

Feel free to cross or uncross your arms whenever you intuitively feel you need to!

It helps to know that there are new channels of life force available in the New Paradigm that will help us ADAPT.

Come From a Grounded Place
Divine Protection

Keep this symbol handy to help you open up to generative life force and close down life-destructive energy channels from the past. That integration also includes new communication channels that will help us connect with each other in far more life affirming ways.

By contemplating the symbol, you’ll find that you’ll be able to intentionally close down harmful channels and open up to the generative life force (chi) that we look for in Feng Shui.

In Chinese, Feng Shui means “wind water”. These are the two elements that move energy for creating life when they’re in balance. When they’re out of balance, they can create all kinds of destructive energy patterns – sudden reversals, poltergeists, collapses in protection and stagnation – just to name a few. 

Needless to say, transitioning out of the energy channels of the Piscean Age (water) into the new energy channels of the Aquarian Age (air) has been causing quite a bit of instability for everyone.

The bottom line is – the sooner we can come from a grounded place in the New Paradigm based on common ground, the better!

If you need help getting your space grounded, you’re welcome to connect with Rheanni Lightwater for Feng Shui consulting. You can share some of the experiences you’re having and what you’re noticing about your space. Getting a Feng Shui perspective on your situation could be very useful and help you to make the best decisions about your space and organize your life in a way that will move you forward.

Once you’ve finished going through the entire exercise, take yourself for a gentle walk in nature or have a soak in a hot bath with Epsom salts or Sea Salt. It’s important to make sure that you’ve cleansed yourself.

  1. Begin by relaxing while you softly gaze at this Reiki Chakra Key for your Life Path Chakras, located on either side of your Crown Chakra at the top of your head. Use the following affirmation:

“I choose to relax and open up to my true potential.”



2. Take some more time to breathe deeply.
 Pay special attention to those places in your body where you’re feeling pain or discomfort. 
Consciously send your breath to those places and let them relax.
Stretch if you need to. Open and close your hands. Notice the time and the space around you.

“I bring myself into the present in the New Paradigm.”

Mind Body IntegrationScroll back up to Divine Protection and take a few moments to consciously close down any harmful energy channels in your body or your space.

Do it both crossed and uncrossed over the center line of your body.



3. Ask for peace and harmony to come into your heart and awareness.

Consciously move your energy out of your head and pull it down into your heart and solar plexus area.

Old Soul

Once you feel the shift, close down harmful energy channels again. The more relaxed you are, the better this works.



4. Connect with your instinctual nature.
Use the Dragonfly Circle to help you tune into your gut instincts so that you can reconnect and improve your relationship with your environment.

“I reconnect with my natural instincts and relationship to my environment.”

Divine Protection

Do you get instinctual messages or intuitive hits about certain areas in the space around you?
Could there be an object that’s holding old energy or keeping you grounded in past unhappiness?

If there is, take a moment to move it now and clear the area with Divine Protection.


Clear Intention

5. Let go of the need to be perfect, having to sacrifice or be everything for everyone. Include intentions that were helpful at one time and are no longer useful.
Could you be holding onto something that doesn’t belong to you or leaving yourself open to a problem that’s not yours to fix?
You are responsible for yourself and only your part of the situation. What is your part?

What makes sense to do? What would be genuinely helpful in this situation?
Resolve to let any misguided intentions go, like old smoke disappearing into the Light.



6. Make sure that you’re accessing the most beneficial energies to support you and your environment.
You may notice that some directions hold more auspicious energies for you than others.

Shut down any energy channels that are irrelevant or distracting you with Divine Protection.



7. To ground in the New Paradigm effectively, you need a strong connection to your spiritual Source. You need to be able to take good care of yourself and willing to ask for help. Bring your attention back to your heart and listen to it beating – nice and steady. Affirm to yourself:

“I exist and am empowered through the connection in my Heart.”

“I take good care of myself and am willing to ask for help.”

“I connect with my environment through Joy and Gratitude.”

Take all the time you need with this.



8. Pull your energy back and out of disappointing experiences.
Use this Circle to help you stop tapping into harmful or destructive energies that don’t support you and that bring chaos into your environment.

Shut down any remaining energy channels that are irrelevant or distracting you with Divine Protection.



9. It’s time to focus your energy on getting grounded. When are grounded, you are not only taking good care of yourself, you also have a positive effect on those around you.

“I pull myself together and get grounded in the New Paradigm.”



10. Is there anything else you need to do to help yourself?
Does anything else need to happen in your environment so you can come from a grounded place?

Make a list so you can remember.



11. Do you have old agreements or assumptions you need to change? You can find them by examining your life and asking yourself:

“What’s been working and what hasn’t been working?”

Are you willing to let go of things that are not working? Release any agreements to hold on.
“I’m willing and able to let go and make the changes necessary for me now.”



12. Keep looking at the Circle while you relax and think of something that you love very much.

Have you been unknowingly jeopardizing things that matter to you?
If you have, what can you do to set it right?
Make note of the ideas that come to you.


Clean Up

13. Use Rat’s Circle to sweep any confusion or clutter out of your mind and send the debris up to the Light. In your mind’s eye, sweep it all away!
Then close the doors behind you that let in all that garbage.

Notice how much better your body feels when your mind gets clear.
Make note of ideas that come to you about how you might remove the clutter out of your environment.



14. Imagine that your Spirit can gently take you by your heart and head. Let it turn you around – toward the direction of your highest good.

Allow an uplifting and generative flow of life affirming energy to circulate through your body.



15. Use this Circle to help you close the pathways in your mind that would lead you into ungrounded and confusing places.

“All holes are sealed and healed.”

“I follow the guidance of my Soul.”

You probably feel much clearer now.


Inner Guidance

16. Take some deep breaths and move your body around again. Let your shoulders drop. Listen to that calm, gentle voice that comes from your heart. What is it telling you?

Old Soul


New BeginningS

17. Allow a generative energy to begin in your solar plexus. Feel it moving up into your heart and let it fill up your entire body – all the way to your fingertips. You are creating a new template for a new beginning.


Divine Protection

18. Finish by gazing at this symbol to confirm your connection with the new and beneficial energies of the New Paradigm.

“My mind and body are open and clear to receive generative life force.”

“All harmful energy channels have been closed down.”

Come from a Grounded Place

 “Divine Protection fills my environment completely in all directions – including above and below.” 

Remember that the need to unify in common ground is real! The changes are taking place over time and you will likely need to do this exercise repeatedly. Take yourself for a gentle walk in nature or have a soak in a hot bath with Epsom/Sea Salts to cleanse yourself.

Changes in Your Environment – Feng Shui Tips

Feng Shui Tips for Handling Recent Changes in Your Environment:

When going through a radical change, it’s a great help to clean out certain areas of our homes and keep an eye on how well the energy is moving. While we’re rearranging things, we can reorganize our intentions to adapt to the changes in our environment and circumstances. When we take the time to do that, we’re allowing a physical and psychological space to open up for new things to come in and help us adjust both inwardly and outwardly.

Changes in Your Environment - Crystal CleansingFor example, I have a lot of crystals and a prayer pipe that I consider sacred. Early on in my Feng Shui practice, I got a strong message that I need to regularly clear out my pipe, cleanse those crystals and rearrange other significant objects to accommodate the changes in the I Ching flow. Why is that so important?

— Because crystals, prayer containers and other significant personal objects can hold onto a great deal of energy and old intentions.

In order to keep my mind and energy flexible, I don’t want to be held back by the gravity of those old energies, including those that marked the end of the Piscean Age. Since the Winter Equinox of 2022, the nature of chi’ or life force flowing through the Tao has changed to an Air based flow (Aquarius) rather than the previous Water based flow.

Let this symbol help you make the adjustment needed.

“I close down all harmful energy channels from the old paradigm.”

Divine Protection for Difficult Beginnings
Divine Protection in the New Paradigm

“I allow my mind and body to acclimate to this lighter, quicker life force.”
“I learn to receive generative life force and use it to communicate with  my environment.”



Also, I don’t want to be blocked by old intentions and outdated agreements that aren’t relevant anymore. They only perpetuate inner conflict or confusion, especially now that we’re obviously in a very different space!

For example, when the pandemic started, I got the strong guidance to “change with the changes and still stay grounded.” In the early summer of 2020, my inner guidance was to “bring light and balanced prosperity into my mindset and environment.” at the Winter Solstice I was guided to pray for “safe transition into the New Paradigm”. Now my intention is “I am firmly grounded in the New Paradigm and have Divine Protection.” These are pretty big changes, and I’m sure there will be many more to come!

Big changes in your environment can be supported with the help of Reiki, strong intention and clear crystals.

To cleanse crystals, I gather them up from around my house and property and then place them in a bowl of water mixed with sea salt. Around the full moon, I’m guided to set them outside for a day or two to cleanse. That way, they will get really clear through an infusion of both Sun and Moon light. Then, I set a new strong and focused intention with those crystals, based on what is needed now.

Notice that I didn’t say, “please keep the coronavirus away,” or “please be sure that civil war doesn’t break out.” If I were to set intentions based on things I don’t want to happen, my whole mindset would start to unconsciously fixate on all the uncertainty and fear that these things attract. To make things even worse, the energy in my environment should start to organize around the fixation. That’s exactly opposite of what I want!

I also don’t want to make intentions frivolously or ask for so many new things that I unwittingly create chaos, conflict and confusion.

So, when I set intentions in turbulent times, I calm myself down first. Once the shock is abated and my mind is clear of anxiety, I ask for a life affirming experience that’s general enough to allow positive change to occur and that makes sense under my current circumstances. That part is especially important since we know the changes we’re going through are liable to continue for some time. Then, I set up the energy in my living space to organize around the new intention by mindfully placing the crystals and/or sacred objects as I’m guided.

Once I’ve set my intention in the space, I pay attention to what I start to attract.  If I start attracting chaos, conflict or confusion, I know that I need to reassess my intention and reorganize it.

I don’t waste my time beating myself up for having made a mistake or not doing it “perfectly”. After all, this is a whole new energy we’re in. We’re at the very beginning of one Age, while the other has departed entirely! It’s going to take a while for our minds to adjust. Mistakes are going to happen. Just get back up, clear your mind and be willing to let go of your assumptions about how you thought things were going to be.

If you’re interested in this process of reassessing and reorganizing your intention, You might be interested in an extra intuitive exercise I’ve put together.

Feng Shui Assessment

Invest in a Feng Shui Assessment For Your Home to Enhance Your Health, Happiness and Prosperity ~

Feng Shui (pronunced “fung shway”) is a Chinese term that means “wind and water” symbolizing the natural flow of “chi” or life energy that flows through our environment and supports life. Predating Taoism and Confucianism, this ancient art of flow and placement in one’s environment has been used to facilitate balance and well being in every important aspect of life. It has also been used to ensure that we are in the “right place at the right time.”

Certain changes in your life may cause an imbalance that would benefit from a Feng Shui Assessment or Re-assessment including:

  • Health – illness, accidents, sudden sensitivity to environment, death.
  • Relationship Changes – engagements, marriage, births, divorce, children or other family members moving out or in.
  • Safety – serious or frequent injury, robbery, assault or other forms of violence.
  • Financial – sudden downturn in business, loss of job, difficulty holding a job or changing careers, bankruptcy.
  • Moving or remodeling.
  • General changes of direction – in lifestyle, livelihood, personal health and goals.

As you can see, a feng shui assessment can be very useful anytime you’re going through a significant change. Even a change of seasons.
