This post is for my 11/24/21 Group Distance Reiki Session. If you are reading this at any time please know the energy and message, as it resonates, is perfect for you.
I started setting up our altar more than an hour early today, feeling very hands-y and a pull to polarity.
The front and primarily left side of my body was tingling as I started tuning in. A feeling everyone needed something different today. Waves of Reiki (like brushstrokes or large wisps) going to individuals, rather than an overall collective flow. While we all have similar needs and themes, it felt like everyone wanted personal attention – this brought to mind the polarity of the altar. It seemed as though there was an extra loneliness and sense of divide that was calling each person’s essence to ask for directed attention and individual help. It felt healthy, to call out and request in this way, yet also disconnecting, in not recognizing that we all can, and do, want this attention and help. Embrace the request and honor the self, while also inviting in compassion for the fact these needs are part of the human experience, and we can also recognize and honor them together.

Tight at the Throat, while buzzing at the left hip and right top thigh. I already had my left hand resting above the left hip, so I moved it to the right thigh. My right hand had been at the Heart, and I moved it to the Throat.
The Throat opened almost immediately, while the right thigh throbbed slowly then vibrated, followed by more vibration at the left hip. I pulled my left hand back, floating above the navel now, and imagined the energy splitting from my palm and flowing toward both spots. (I thought of using my right hand, too, but as I moved from the Throat it retightened immediately.)
After a few minutes here a sharp twinge came at the right edge of the Heart-center, as the other sensations dropped off. I moved my hands here, and the Throat tug came back - and felt connected. I saw lines from the Heart connect up to the sides of the Throat, curling like a twisted Grinch smile (or a curly-Grinch heart, like from the older animated special).
I held here for a while. Pulling up the chin and physically stretching the front throat helped, while quickening the heartbeat. I thought of the individual Reiki wisps at first connection, and translated into little, separated bursts rather than holding a consistent flow. Inspired by, and following, the pace of the heartbeat.
A jolt at the right, back shoulder blade, then some spots in the gut, low abdomen, and right pelvic floor. I let these bursts of Reiki fly and skip around to wherever was calling with sensation.
More at the right eyebrow (tension headache), right ankle, and stomach/Solar Plexus. Flowing, flowing, flowing in bursts to these individual responses. Stepping back and sweeping from the top, a little tightness at the Crown, a band of tension across both eyes, still holding between the Throat and Heart, and then very sharp stabbing at the left ovary. I took a wider stance with my hands and intentions, holding out in the deeper layers of the aura, and continued to imagine the flow in separate Reiki bursts. Suddenly the energies started to naturally intertwine, joining together in a circle at this aura layer, and holding the body completely.
My fingers and hands felt like they disappeared in this strong flow of energy, save for throbbing at the tips, and at the base of the palms. I stayed here for many minutes, until a card draw to close the session: From Sandra Anne Taylor’s “Energy Oracle Cards” deck we received...
[Shuffling A side note: When I setup the deck and charged it at the start of the session I inadvertently ended up with Archangel Gabriel facing upright (rather than having the cards stored in a ready-to-shuffle inverted stack). I feel this was a sign of his presence for today’s session, so I’ll include that card picture and description for everyone as well.]
...another Archangel – both for self-expression! #36 SECOND CHAKRA, ARCHANGEL ARIEL: Intimacy and Creativity, upright (full card description with picture below).
Another side note: When I was setting up I grabbed both Lemon Eucalyptus and Cedarwood essential oils – and while I didn’t use them directly, I had them with me the whole time and believe their essences were still included in today’s energies.
In Peace & In Gratitude,
Enjoy this moment, day, and holiday season.

#36 SECOND CHAKRA, ARCHANGEL ARIEL
Intimacy and Creativity
Upright Your second chakra vibrates in the energy of the beautiful angel Ariel. She sends a bright orange energy, promoting inspired creativity and greater comfort with intimacy. When his card appears upright, it’s urging you to get creative. Let yourself reach out into unexplored areas of self-expression and new projects that may have a more creative approach. This is also a time when the energies of closeness with others - and nurturing yourself - can flow more freely. You can now open yourself to the emotional intimacy that may be coming your way. So nurture yourself and be ready to receive the affection and camaraderie of the resonant souls around you. AFFIRMATION: My second chakra is open to its perfect, healthy state. I am creative and self-nurturing, more and more comfortable with the gentle waves of intimacy coming my way.
#39 FIFTH CHAKRA, ARCHANGEL GABRIEL
Self-Expression and Speaking Your Truth
Gabriel holds his trumpet in one hand and a beautiful orb of blue light in the other. He is sending powerful energy to your throat center, acknowledging your power to communicate and your readiness to do so. This angel opens you up to truthful expression - both with yourself and others. You may have had trouble with expressing emotions and ideas in the past, but Gabriel is here to tell you that your soul longs to take this leap now. Be aware that true communication includes how you speak to yourself, so never deny your profound, integral value. Speak up for yourself; write in your journal; let your words flow! Now is the time to express yourself freely and fully, and the Universe always honors your choice to do so. This card could also indicate that a communication project is coming - or a time of heightened communication with Spirit and telepathy with others. AFFIRMATION: My throat chakra is open to its perfect, healthy state, spinning with the beautiful energy of freedom and self-empowerment. I am free to express myself in every way.
