Go with the flow
I love all the funny little ironies of life. For instance, right now I was supposed to be teaching Reiki to someone who has both wanted the attunements but also felt some hesitation about the process. In the final hours before the training was to commence, this person developed a serious migraine. As my great teacher Rose used to say, "Body trumps spirit." Oh yeah. The attunement can wait for another day.
In cases such as this, I trust the wisdom of the body so very much. Also, the last minute cancellation provided me with an unexpected break. I have some time for myself today, before my last client. Time to walk around, take pictures, drink tea and ponder the complexities of life. Love that!
Two seconds after I locked the door to the office, I heard my name. The intrepid tree planters of Capitol Hill were busy at work, planting a new tree in the triangle park across the street from the house on Tennessee Avenue. One of the very no-nonsense members of this group told me one of the trees planted last year, specifically the tree I infused with Reiki, has flourished, while the tree right next to it (one I didn't infuse because they were still planting it when I walked by) has not fared as well. She asked if I would mind treating the tree I missed last year, and while I'm at it, work with the trees they're planting today.
Reiki was definitely part of today's feng shui, though what I didn't get till just now is that I need to focus on the trees rather than specific people. Thanks, God! I'm on it.
