10am – 6pm Amazing Reiki 1 Workshop

Some Benefits of Reiki

Imagine knowing that no matter what happens to you, where you go or what you believe, you will always have Reiki in your hands and heart, for deep healing and inner guidance. Reiki is a beautiful and pure, divine energy that is capable of boosting spiritual growth during practice and of healing the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies of the practitioner and recipient. It is the easiest method of healing because there aren’t any complex formulas or exercises involved in its delivery. I welcome you to come, learn about Reiki, and become a practitioner of Reiki (for yourself and others, including animals!) in this relaxed atmosphere and small workshop! I like to keep these workshops to 8 people maximum, so if you can’t get into the Reiki 1 Workshop this month, be assured that I will be teaching regularly throughout the year. Please try for the next one. You may contact me prior to registration with questions and/or to pick up your manual before the workshop. I hope to see you soon.- Maureen Rivelle, RN, RMT, OpenHandsReiki.com

7 – 8:30pm Guided Meditation + Acupuncture (Ear) + Reiki Blessing

Guided meditation, Acupuncture (Ear) and Reiki Blessing

This is your opportunity to unwind and relax with like-minded people, which is invaluable on the spiritual path! Meditation is beneficial in any form, even for beginners. It’s open to people from all walks of life and paths. It’s centering and calming. Really, there’s no “down-side” to meditation. Acupuncture has many healing properties, as well, including balancing of the mind and body, relaxation and elimination or reduction in pain. Reiki is divine energy that helps the body to heal in whichever way is most needful, and promotes spiritual experiences, among other positive effects. All these modalities together make for a super experience of getting into a wonderful and peaceful place of tranquility, and more!

What to Expect

After some initial paperwork, Joie Jacala, Eastern Medicine Practitioner and Licensed Acupuncturist with Daylight Healing Center, will start off by placing Acupuncture needles in specific areas on the ears to promote relaxation and well-being. Soothing music will be playing in the background. Then I will read a healing meditation and go to each person to give a brief, hands-on Reiki blessing. Afterwards, Joie will remove the needles and we will give you time to discuss the experience a bit, if you want. Joie’s website is Zenjoynow.com.

Lead by a Guided Healing Master

My name is Maureen Rivelle, RN, Reiki Master Teacher at Daylight Healing Center. My website is OpenHandsReiki.com. I will be leading the guided healing meditation portion. Then I will come around to each person and offer wonderful Reiki energy by placing my hands on or above your head. I may enlist the help of another Reiki Master if lots of you come! Limit: 12 participants.

What to Bring

The space is a small yoga studio with laminate flooring. Bring your own yoga mat(s) or cushion, a blanket and a pillow, and your journal (optional). This meditation can be done lying down but if you meditate better in a seated position (which is the case for me, too), please bring whatever you’d like to sit on. We have a few zero gravity recliners and folding chairs, too.

Please be on time! Since we only have 1 1/2 hours, every minute counts. Please consider coming 15 minutes early to set up your comfy spot! Door closes at 7:05 PM.

Thank you! We look forward to experiencing this blessing with you!

Treasure Yourself

Have you ever treasured yourself?

Treasure Yourself

Have you ever looked into your own eyes in a mirror and smiled genuinely? Have you ever put your hands over your belly and closed your eyes, thanking the Universe within for yourself?

I believe in unanswered questions

Sometimes an answer shuts down the asking process too quickly. Sometimes, an unanswered question can be savored, looked at from different angles, answered myriad ways, even answered in paradoxical ways. It’s not a test. It’s an exploration. Let’s explore these questions together. Looking inward, can you love the life that is deeper than your physical being, that resides deeper within? Can you feel it when you sit quietly in acceptance of yourself? Why would treasuring yourself be helpful?

We are more than we think we are

Without me telling you all that you are, can you feel it yourself? The feelings may not come with words. That’s okay.

Let me help you find yourself in your hidden depths

My sessions are self empowering. They help you to feel your true inner life, and release whatever is hiding you from your own brightness. Come explore with me, but start the process by treasuring yourself today, wherever you are sitting, reading this.

LOVE Your Boo Monster

Love your BOO MonsterWhen I was studying Shamanism with a teacher years ago, I was accused of loving my negative ego. Instead of making my ego shut up, or ignoring it, or quieting my mind, the teacher accused me of listening to and allowing it to run my life. This was sure to be detrimental to my spiritual growth, the idea being that I should give no ground to “the mind” or ego, as it brought up negative stuff from my past, or made me feel bad because I was caught in a cycle of anxiety. I had, at that point, done a lot of self-therapy to help me discover the root causes of my problems. When the teacher accused me this way, it really hurt my feelings. If nothing else, I always tried to be conscientious in catching my “Boo Monster” in its tricks.

She called the ego’s negative self talk “Boo Monster” because it was guiding me from a basis of fear. It was a monster that cast doubts and offered no affirmations nor substance. It wasn’t helpful… ever!

Acknowledge Your Boo Monster

About a year ago, I found that acknowledging these negative feelings actually stopped them from being so obtrusive. In my mind’s eye, I could see my inner child, around four years old, crying and being afraid. She was saying that I shouldn’t try anything new, that it was scary and I might fail. I would see and hear this inside whenever a new opportunity presented itself. I frequently greeted new ideas with fear, and I tried to push away both; status quo was so much safer.

But this time, instead of imagining my inner child on my lap and telling her I had everything under control, which was one tactic I tried using numerous times without any measurable results in the fear-decreasing department, I acknowledged to her that I did feel unsafe. I said what I felt, that I felt vulnerable and fearful. My inner child’s response to this was that she actually calmed down, for the first time, and walked to the playground, instead of continuing to cry on my lap! I acknowledged my feelings. It was so surprising to realize that she just wanted to be heard!

Feelings are so important, yet we’re taught that they can’t be given priority. But as soon as I acknowledged the feelings my so called “Boo Monster” was warning me about, my fear level went way down.

Acceptance Will Set You Free

So yes, I do love my “Boo Monster.” I love that it informs me of what I’m feeling deep inside. I love that it’s a part of me that is trying to keep me safe. And I also love the fact that when I acknowledge my feelings, that recognition and acceptance of myself and what I’ve experienced in the past, good or bad, allows me to become calm.

I’d Love to Help YOU tame your Boo Monsters

My intuitive guidance and Reiki were instrumental in learning to love and accept all the different parts of my personality. I’d love to help you with this important work. Call me at (425) 409-9594 for an intuitive Reiki session today!

11am – 1pm Horse Healing – Come Hug A Horse! in Snohomish

Daylight Healing Center Hug a Horse, Natural healers

Maureen makes a deep, natural healing, full-heart connection with Ella

Come out with us to spiritually connect, heart to heart, with gentle horses in Snohomish. Ella and Zea are natural healers that love to share their gift of being able to connect, on a soul level, with people.

By brushing, touching and breathing together with the horse that chooses you (No Riding), a heart connection will be created that will inform, nourish and inspire you. I’ve done this several times and it never gets old; I can’t express how awesome it is to make a deep heart connection with these incredible creatures and enter into a very quiet and deep spiritual place.

Stacy, their human, knows very well that this connection is life-enhancing in many ways, and seems to provide exactly what we need at the time. Some of the benefits you can experience are:

• Expanded Self-Awareness

• Strengthening of your Intuition

• An Increase of Vitality and Energy

• An Enhancement of your Spiritual Energy

Stacy will be facilitating, as she has been partnering with Ella and Zea for more than 10 years at her spacious Snohomish horse ranch, helping people create that special horse/human bond. She is an Equine Professional and Life Coach. Please see Stacy’s website CentaurDevelopment.com for more information about Stacy and her horse partners. There will be tea and talk afterwards. The price is $30.

This will prove to be a magical and memorable time for each of us. If you love horses, want to be around horses, or are simply drawn to the Spirit of the Horse, you will cherish this learning opportunity. You’ll be able to interact with special horses for a fun, safe and powerful equine and human bonding experience.

We will only take 6 people, so please RSVP at daylighthealingcenter@gmail.com or (425) 409-9594 soon! We may carpool, or you can drive yourself.

Thank you and I hope YOU can make it,
