This post is for my 10/01/21 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.
It's October!! As I mentioned in my prep comments, today's energies felt ready for cleansing and purging.
Today's grid came to me in a vision earlier this week, on Tuesday - but I set the intention for each altar to hold and distribute energies from the session until my next session, so I waited until today to bring it together. Please know it will be holding the energies of this session for you until our next.
I started with an energetic flush out, and focusing on the grid I saw a Fire Serpent coming in. I got the nudge to recommend cuddle and nesting - for there's an air of grief in this release and letting go... Despite the excitement and joy/wonder/awe of learning a new way of being, there is often some judgement in looking back at what has been lost along the way. A longing for knowing this sooner, and perhaps regret for lost time and opportunity.
Tuning into the body I felt a tightness in the throat, and left back neck, with time moving up into the left back of skull. A stretching and pulling.
Something about 'Pacing';
and a bird's beak cutting up through the center of the brain;
which led to muscle spasm three times in the right shoulder blade (1, 2... 3).
I sent Reiki to the idea of pacing and to the left head and neck. A lot of throbbing came through the area, and with my eyes closed today's grid came to mind, like the Tree of Life. I pictured the altar, and the feeding of the chakras through the tree roots - feeding that leads to blossoming. The throbbing softened.
Tightness at the back ridge of the head remained, now spreading to the right as well. It moved into an energetic waterfall down onto tight shoulders. I stayed with the energy flow here, in a loop, with the thought of adding Fire Serpent energies to the powerful, raging waters. (Strong, ancient beliefs causing emotional strain - ready to be transmuted with action, burning into embers and then ashes, floating away.) The flow shifted upward into the mid-head, then eventually into a beautiful effervescence at the Crown.
I returned attention to the shoulders - now able to settle and fully relax downward, and started a scan down the body. Holding briefly at the heart a hungry stomach ache came in from the Solar Plexus, then a return of aching, into pain, at the mid-neck.
I held both spots - both physically, and in awareness, with Reiki. Left hand on stomach, right hand on neck, and reaching to touch the end of the palm on the right jaw as well. The stomach quickly lightened (remember to drink water) while the neck pain moved full into the right jaw, so I shifted position and moved both hands there. Now tightness stretching up into the right ear as well. Snoopy.
Tension begins again on the left mid-neck. Remembering the waterfall. What message is coming back around? Pacing? Hydration? I had moved out of the lotus position without realizing, so I centered back in and straightened up.
I held space at the Heart for a minute, just noticing, then widened awareness to the full aura, allowing flow, and movement, and open communication.
I remembered I had also intended to bring in quartz toning for today's session, so I moved to my Sacral D bowl. The vibrations were shivery and clarifying, break apart the tension in the neck into little bits that disbursed through the left ear, temple, eyebrow and shoulder. Another round of tones brought a gentle version of the waterfall back, moving peacefully down the full back body. A final, strong tone and it felt time to draw cards - they would provide assistance for a final clearing sweep and sealing of the session. Three cards for the collective today - decided much earlier. You may think of them as past, present and future if you have a specific question - or a flow and reflection of guidance for the coming weeks.
From Sandra Anne Taylor's 'Energy Oracle Cards' deck, first up is #35 FIRST CHAKRA, ARCHANGEL MICHAEL, upright. Then #44 WOMAN HOLDING A HEART, inverted. An lastly, #12 THE TEMPLE PATH, which I pulled sideways, this usually means it has different specific meanings for different participants today - or perhaps there is uncertainty on which way you're heading. (Full card descriptions below.)
I pictured the energy and affirmations of these three cards circling, sending light, love and clarity for all of us. I saw the red Root Chakra light blessing and surrounding our fields for confidence and security to persist, and reinforce our faith that we have these traits. Letting this trust move us beyond the Woman Holding a Heart, and see what is necessary to proceed down our Temple Path. A final sweep and clearing, with the intention these energies and messages continue to bless you going forward, for many days and weeks. I wish you peace.

#35 FIRST CHAKRA, ARCHANGEL MICHAEL
Stability and Security
Michael holds a beautiful globe of red energy at the first chakra, which is located at the base of the spine. This is the place where your sense of stability and security is stored. When this card is upright, it reveals that your energy is flowing freely regarding these issues. Even if you’ve had problems with feeling secure in the past, these challenges are beginning to be resolved at this time.
Archangel Michael is with you, bringing you strength and personal stability. You are capable of taking action and moving forward on your path, so allow yourself to feel increasing faith in your own power and security now and always.
AFFRIMATION: My first chakra is open to its perfect, healthy state. I am strong, stable, safe, and secure. The Archangel Michael guides and supports me always.
#44 WOMAN HOLDING A HEART
Female Dealing with Family, Love or Emotions
This card reversed could indicate a state of being emotionally overwhelmed, and you may feel as though your love life is turned upside down. It could also refer to some difficulty in a family matter or close friendship. If this is the case, it’s time to let go or resolve things now.
There’s also a possibility that this woman reversed is someone who brings a negative emotional influence to your life. There may be jealousy, resentments, or even more subtle manipulations going on. Don’t take things personally, but endeavor to bring greater clarity and calm self-empowerment to the situation now. And always remember to bring a loving heartfelt energy to yourself!
AFFIRMATION: I am emotionally calm and peaceful, and I attract healthy and stable people to me.
#12 THE TEMPLE PATH
Spiritual Purpose and Support
Receiving this card represents your own spiritual evolution. The winding path you are on leads to a blessed temple and a lovely garden, symbolizing the spiritual destiny your soul has had in mind for this lifetime. This card upright is here to tell you that what you’re going through now is all part of your soul's process. You are on your karmic path and heading in the right direction, and the choices you make now are important for your personal growth and life lessons.
The lights around the temple represent the spirit world -your family members and friends, angels and guides- all the loving spirit helpers who long to assist you. Call upon them and be open to their wisdom and inspiration.
This is a wonderful, life expanding time, so keep in mind your personal priorities as well as your spiritual connection. Following your higher intentions will help you move your life forward in dramatic ways, and connecting with spirit -and your higher self- will have a wonderful influence on all that you experience.
Receiving this card reversed as a sign that you may have fallen off your path. You could be too focused on worldly possessions and material gain, or you may simply be maintaining old, unhealthy habits of fear, limitation, worry, or doubt.
Whatever is distracting you, receiving this card reversed is a firm message that it’s time to make your spiritual life and evolution a much higher priority. Not doing so represents an important loss of power! So clear your mind, meditate, and open up to the presence of spirit.
Whatever else you may have going on, consider this an important part of your personal and tactical plans. The support and inspiration of all eternity and countless loving spirits are available to you. Not turning to them is like cursing the dark when you refuse to turn on the lights.
AFFIRMATION: I open my heart to my spiritual truth and a deeper connection with spirit. Guidance and inspiration come freely and easily to me.
