It is Almost Usui Retreat Time

Before writing this letter to you I sat in my meditation spot. My mood was certainly enhanced by the sunlight and how it played on the trees, the sound of the meditation fountain spilling over the crystals placed there and the sweet music of the windchime that hangs from the limb of the craggy old tree completed my peace filled expereince.

It is June already which means that in a few weeks the semi annual Virtual 21 day Usui Retreat will start. Mark you calendars for June 21st. The first meditation will go out then. This Retreat will feature Bronwen Stiene from the International House of Reiki in Australia. I have had the pleasure of staying with Bronwen and Frans in their home in the Blue Mountains a few years back. They both are wonderful teachers, facilitators and authors.

Feeling Our Words
Words Have Weight

Words carry energy and this gives language its power and its potential to heal or hurt. Most of us can remember a time that someone sent a word our way, and it stuck with us. It may have been the first time we received a truly accurate compliment, or the time a friend or sibling called us a name, but either way it stuck. This experience reminds us that what we say has weight and power and that being conscious means being aware of how we use words.

The more conscious we become, the more we deepen our relationship to the words we use so that we speak from a place of actually feeling what we are saying. We begin to recognize that words are not abstract, disconnected entities used only to convey meaning; they are powerful transmitters of feeling.
For the next few days, you might want to practice noticing how the words you say and hear affect your body and your emotional state. Notice how the different communication styles of the people in your life make you feel. Also, watch closely to see how your own words come out and what affect they have on the people around you. You may notice that when we speak quickly, without thinking, or rush to get our ideas across, our words don't carry the same power as when we speak slowly and confidently, allowing those receiving our words time and space to take them in. When we carefully listen to others before we speak, our words have more integrity, and when we take time to center ourselves before speaking, we truly begin to harness the power of speech. Then our words can be intelligent messengers of healing and light, transmitting deep and positive feelings to those who receive them.
