Archive for the ‘In Memoriam’ Category

This post is long overdue, but everything happens exactly as it is meant to and in the most suitable time frame, so a little background as to the reasons for the delay, and how those reasons themselves add further clarity, strength and understanding to the whole concept of worry as we generally understand it.

Following a very difficult period, not only because of my Father’s passing (see my new blog for further details, updated postings etc.) In Memoriam, but also due to the new harsh reality of my Mother’s financial situation and the need to find new living arrangements for her, the whole concept of “Just for Today I will not worry” was put to the supreme test.

There were some shaky moments to be sure, very shaky actually, but the constant use of Reiki, meditation and prayer have proven themselves once again. It took some time, more than my problematic impatience could stand at moments, but things are slowly working their way out in ways of course that I could never imagine.

Which is all part of it! Let GO and let GOD! Don’t worry about the “how’s”. Don’t set limits as to how the solution will present itself. Just know that …”when we release our needs and prayers to the universe without strings attached, the heavens take care of coordinating the outcome.”…”Look upon everything from the end of (your) prayer onward as having a part to play in the answer to your prayer…” (Caroline Myss, Invisible Acts of Power).

Hopefully the following will give you a deeper understanding of the principle…”just for today I will not worry”…and I am sure my own personal involvement over the past few months precisely with this principle, was not by chance. Nothing Is. It was all meant to give more depth and concrete understanding to me before presenting it here to you.

My Father passed away on Octber 16th, following almost 6 months of a difficult and lingering death, during which time (more…)

My life has taken a detour, again (what we perceive as a detour in our journey, is only OUR understanding of the turn of events. Truth is, things are unfolding exactly as they should and all things occur as they are meant to at the moment in the Universal plan of things)…and has, at the same time, given me the opportunity for further growth through new lessons learnt. When one is forced to take a detour on a planned journey, it does not mean that he cannot enjoy the scenery on the new route. Perhaps pleasant scenery is not part of this detour for me, but certainly blessings to be found and lessons to be learnt are.

And as such, this blog will once again take a detour away from the planned in depth discussion of the Reiki principles until this current period comes to an end. You can however see (more…)

Hi All, Sorry to have deserted you but wasn’t sure anyone would notice. It’s only since several of you have asked that I’m writing to let you know what’s been going on for the past few weeks and why I haven’t continued my postings on Reiki. Two of my daughters and their families have relocated, one from the city to the country, another coming back after 3 years of work abroad, and I spent several days with each of them helping them move in and organize their new homes. At the same time, my father is still going through a serious crisis after being, regretably, placed in a permanent nursing care unit. It will take him time to adjust but his complete dependence on others has taken a great toll and it is very difficult to see him, care for him etc. And of course, my Mother has been deeply effected by this as well. They have spent their entire life together as a couple, meeting each other something like 75 years ago and being married for 65 years. And the last 30+ years they have been retired and have spent every single day together just about all the time. The separation for them, beyond the difficult state my father is in, would be enough to create a serious emotional crisis leading to physical symptoms. It is like have part of your body ripped out. But they are both in the same assisted living building, my Mother in her own apartment still, and Father just downstairs, and they are both learning to come to terms with the situation. What the entire past year has created for all of us however, including myself, without our even being aware of it, is a chronic state of stress which has pretty much lasted for about 1 1/2 years actually, and only now have I understand the debilitating effect it has created in my life, on all levels, emotional, mental, physical and spiritual. It has been devastating and only this week did I realize to what extent it has effected me. I am now working things through and putting myself “back together” as well…including going to the gym, (in addition to my daily practices of yoga, pranayama, meditation and Reiki) and, finally, working on my India Journals blog. All of the above has taken up my energies, both physically and mentally, and have therefore not posted anything new here all this time. My apologies….but part of the living in the now is living in the now! And doing what is right at each moment…flowing…learning…understanding…creating new ways of dealing and always opening the new doors of opportunity which present themselves to us along the way…no matter how twisted and complicated it may seem sometimes. So, if you are interested in seeing what I’ve done so far on the India Journals (about 1/2 way finished but no photos yet)…and also a very interesting sum up post of Lesson’s Learnt from my travels at the beginning of the blog…you can do so by following this link: Jane’s India Journals Hope to get back to my regular blog entries shortly. My love to all Jane
