As we make our journey through September we often struggle with loss and challenges as the season changes. We have lost our Majesty the Queen and at Katsura Reiki we are marking this loss with a day of mourning on Sept 19th. Let us all take a moment to acknowledge the passing of the Queen and to celebrate all her contributions and dedicated service to her country. Sending all reiki blessings to all.

As we progress into the month of August I can't help notice the days are getting a bit shorter...and the weather is not so scorching. It is a time to enjoy the most the summer has to offer from gorgeous sunsets to patios with friends to just listening to the waves at beach. Take some time to sit back and listen to nature. See what emotions come up and let it just be. Let the emotions just pass by as if on a river. Take some time to not overthink things just simply enjoy the moment. Sending...

May Days
26. May 2022
As we near the end of May we finally are encountering some warm weather. It is starting to feel like summer! The lilacs are finally blooming and the lily of the valley are making an appearance as I clear away the weeds and debris from the garden. Gardening is therapeutic and is akin to clearing the cobwebs from your mind. It allows you to focus on the task at hand and only that. All the issues and dramas of the day fade away as you mindlessly pull weeds or plant some new herbs or flowers. In...

Welcome Spring! A great time of growth and renewal. It is also a time to show yourself some compassion as we start our journey into this new season. We often neglect ourselves and listen to our harsh inner critics when we need to be kind towards ourselves. Often kindness can take the form of carving some time out of our busy schedule and just walking in nature.
