Release, Offered from the Higher Self
This post is for my 09/03/21 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.
In preparing for today's session there was an air of cosmic transitioning - transmuting. Connecting above and rooting below, with all the stages in-between. I used some tangerine essential oil upon setup and had the idea it would be a two-card draw day: one for today, one for the coming week.
As I settled in to begin connecting I used some tea tree essential oil and thought to focus on the Crown. Integration & Immersion were key today. The idea that we need to release to make space, and yet, do we know what to release? Really know? Before clearing anything old out we can sit in the energy of integration and immerse ourselves for clarity on where to transmute. A calling to open to our Higher Selves today, fully and completely. A lot of energy went to this idea and focus, without specific direction or feedback, knowing this is a unique experience for everyone - the Reiki supporting their own guidance and trust here.
For the process of release it came that words are important. While words aren't necessary for communication or understanding with our Higher Selves, they are critical in our physical connection. We collectively have given words power, so now words give us power. Put what you desire to release into words: either say it out loud or write it down.
There is full Universal support now for this process, and you are ready. Your Higher Self wants to connect and help you feel this support, to know you have their power and sense of complete worth, total love, and infinite stillness at all times. Take a few breaths to allow that to settle into your body.
I shared Reiki to this relationship and connection for more than half the session, then transitioned attention to the Root: for clarity, safety and stability in bringing these energy connections and awarenesses into the physical.
Grounding and Reiki at the Root supported the release; a washing away. You are very powerful right now, and while sometimes transmutation and integration can feel difficult, this is the time for them to come quickly and easily. Let yourself trust, use the power of words, and let go. It can be that simple.
This message brought to mind drawing a card at this time in the session, and with shuffling #36 SECOND CHAKRA, ARCHANGEL ARIEL flung out of the deck inverted. (From Sandra Anne Taylor's "Energy Oracle Cards" deck, full description below.) In seeing this I was drawn to divert some attention to the Sacral chakra, appreciating the cards message and timing. It didn't feel a substitute for the Root attention, rather an extension to fully empower the Crown & Higher Self work. I felt grateful for this session guidance and used the imagery of the card description to envision Archangel Ariel spinning a Sacral ball of light for all participants.
I realized this reading was a wonderful addition to the session, yet felt more for "right now" than on-going guidance, and was pleasantly surprised to remember my intuition on a 2nd card draw today --- guidance for the next week! From the same deck #7 COMMUNITY came up, also inverted, and is detailed below for your personal guidance (in addition to all this lovely Higher Self, releasing and clearing, and personal Sacral support you may wish to lean into)!
I used some tea tree and oregano oils, and wrapped up with some Reiki shared widely, to calm and balance the entire aura, and to assist in integration over the coming days (and weeks) for all participants.

For Today's Session, specifically
#36 SECOND CHAKRA,
Intimacy and Creativity
When this card is reversed, you may find that your creativity is being blocked. If this is the case, you might need to take more risks and open up to new and different ideas.
Go inward to find the feelings that may be causing this blockage. Call upon Ariel to help you release old fears and self-limitations. Affirm that you are open to Spirit's love and creative inspiration.
This card reversed can also signal problems with intimacy of all kinds, and issues of sexual intimacy in particular. Visualize Ariel spinning a beautiful light in your second chakra, calming and healing the energy there. Know that real closeness can be both safe and comfortable for you, and that you deserve a depth of sharing in your relationships.
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.
For Guidance in the Coming Week(s)
Connection with Kindred Spirits
This card reversed indicates feelings of isolation and perhaps loneliness. There may have been a recent disconnect with old associations or even a dissolution of some wider partnership. This may result in feelings of loss and grief, but take heart.
It is often the case that as you shift your energy into a higher vibration, you may find that you no longer resonate with old acquaintances the way you used to. If that is the case, it may be time to move on to more resonant associations. Let yourself network in ways that reflect your higher intentions. Meditation groups, classes, book clubs, and the like are all places you may meet new acquaintances that are in closer harmony to you. You needn't allow your isolation to continue. It may take some conscious effort on your part, but now is the time to reconnect, network, and gain the sense of support that you are looking for.
AFFIRMATION: I open my life to the wonderful people around me. I am making strong and beneficial connections in both my personal and professional life.
