In the beginning there was only Pause, one word, a stillness, a beingness, a presence and duality; but all that was to change one fateful morning. Teaching Reiki as a conventional hands-on healing technique with Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), a psychological acupressure tapping technique was eclipsed when Joy entered between wakefulness and sleep. This  enormous O circled my little pause symbol as I recited in my unconscious dream, Why is my pause inside that O? Perplexed the image zoomed out as a smaller J and Y appeared on either side of the O. Why is my pause inside that joy? Over and over again, until I bolted upright in bed saying Pause in Joy;  I awakened.

You see it is not enough to work with all the trauma, sickness, depression, unworthiness and addictions as this is a detox of the soul.  The soul wanted rehab using Reiki as the vehicle to plug you in and turn you on to follow your bliss and live the joyful rich life you came here to experience. We have to work both ends of the spectrum cleaning and clearing limitations, beliefs systems, old pain and trauma while focusing on being a Joy bringer.  As Joseph Campbell taught us to follow our bliss as we get older we realize the pursuit of happiness is the medicinal bliss to our physical, emotional and spiritual wealth.
