Source of Healing Energy

A lady called recently inquiring about a Reiki treatment, and asked me where the source of my energy comes from.  The question caught me off guard and I fumbled with my answer for a few seconds.  The question makes me wonder how many people worry if there is something magical involved in the healing energies.  My answer is NO, there is nothing magical, and especially nothing dark, about it. By definition, Reiki is a healing modality that uses the Universal Life Force energy for healing, balance, and rejuvenation.  Universal Life Force is the energy that flows through all living things:  […]

St. Mary’s Bookstore

I went to St. Mary’s Bookstore this morning after breakfast. I love walking around that store looking at all the statues and rosaries.  And of course I picked up a few things while I was there. I bought a small crucifix for my bedroom, and one for my daughter’s dorm room.  It’s been a long time since I had a crucifix hanging in my room, but it feels like it’s time again.  I have one wall with a Buddha and mala beads.  My dresser has a hand drum and a Native American flute.  The crucifix should fit right in with the […]

Soul Clearing

Over the past couple of weeks, I have had two ‘clearing’ sessions with an intuitive healer. At first I wasn’t sure what to expect, but the general idea is to remove the blocks that keep you from fulfilling your life’s purpose…those events from your past that you turn into beliefs about yourself. The healer found that most of my beliefs were related to family crap from my childhood. No big surprise there. The day after the first session started off normal, but by midday I felt like I was catching a bug, maybe even the flu. I’m sure that was […]

A Case for Truth

Last night I watched a documentary titled “A Case for Christ” about one man’s journey from atheism to Christianity. The documentary is about a supposedly hardcore atheist who embarks on a personal mission to prove whether or not the story of Jesus is real. Being a journalist for a popular news agency, he has access to many resources to either prove or disprove the existence of the Christ. Many interviews with religious scholars are presented supporting the virgin birth, miracles, crucifixion, and resurrection of Jesus. Of course in the end, the guy is convinced, and becomes a Christian. There was […]

Removing God

Can Unitarian Universalists Make It Another 50 Years? After reading this article from HuffingtonPost.com about the Unitarian Universalist Church, I have to question if the title shouldn’t have been can the church survive at all, instead of can it last another 50 years. This article begins with an apology from a lay minister that the word God had been removed from that Sunday’s program, supposedly so the humanists wouldn’t be offended. This sounds like the equivalent of doing something you know you shouldn’t, then asking for forgiveness later. It doesn’t change the fact that you shouldn’t have done it to […]
