Surprise is here this month lets tap in to the magic, and the pure thrill of letting go

In This Issue

Word of the Month


Commitment seems to be a word that many have difficulty with as they feel tethered to a fixed aspect.

I was once told that I was sooo disciplined and they could never be that disciplined. I neither see my self as disciplined or undisciplined but rather I am committed.

Commitment is devotion, it is focus, it is full-hearted, it is Pausing in your Joy.

Lets dance with our commitments this month as I’m sure you already have commitments you do not even think about so begin with acknowledging them.






Every Thursday 6-7pm


Abundance & Joy Laxmi Mantra Meditation

online (ZOOM)



Click here to join: 

Every morning as we start our
day, we have the opportunity to
dive into the abundance of possibilities and new cycles.
You can choose what seeds
you sow for birthing of new
ideas, projects or even a new
you. Germination of new seeds requires that there is abundance
in their nurturing.
Join Soffeah in connecting
with Goddess Laxmi
(Luck-shmee) who is an
energetic expression of
Abundance, Prosperity and
Fortune. We will recite the
Laxmi mantra 108 times and meditate with the intervals of
silence that gives birth to
sound and the sound that
gives meaning to silence.
When you initiate something
with the vibration of
abundance, it multiplies in
magical ways in this energy
space continuum. There are
many who want to give more
in this world but we also need
to expand our ability to
receive more… more vitality,
more joy, more laughter, more
love, more success. Question
is are you willing to continue expanding in it?

Mantras are
deeply connected to the
vibrational essence of the
sound generated and it’s
repetition transcends one’s
chatter mind state to stillness.

July 13th,7-8pm

Each person will receive energy from the rest of the group at the same time for 8-10 mins and then we rotate.

Happy 4th July
Our beautiful intense transition of Mars being direct was eased with our adventure to the Integratron where I sent of course the Pause in Joy community energy from. The energy of Mars will take a further month for your actions, rituals and routines to get back to being rooted as you re/commit while clearing the distractions, hubris and inauthentic charm from your life.
This is now the time to relax and build the reserves of your energy for your big expansion building towards September as we tap into the New Moon and Jupiter. We are about to see from Nasa’s Juno mission the biggest,  baddest planet up close as the Lord of Plenty reveals the unknown. Thats right we are about to get up close with finally knowning as above, so below for the  Surprise to be revealed. Surprise can be a scary thing depending on your relationship with it but I want us to trust that the Universe and consciousness is bringing things into our life we have longed for forever.

This is the time to commit to your practice, time to shed the skin and take it all to the next level and join me with the  #100daysofjoy beginning July 16th. In 2011 I changed the focus of my teachings from Pause to the philosophy that is Pause in Joy. It is only now that I am truly understanding this celestial message for the primary focus to be more and more on Joy while the secondary to clear the blockages, limitations and obstacles. Today we are celebrate the unalienable right to pursue happiness, life and liberty and it is in that pursuit of this freedom that we experience our Joys. It is only when you know oppression that this phrase is a magical declaration that we must not take for granted but nurture by living our pursuit of happiness through knowing what gives us Joy. So to really PAUSE in Joy we need to get clear about what Joy is so I would love for you to come on this Journey with me using the hashtag #100daysofjoy and to keep up to date on whats what see

I would also like to say a huge thankyou for all the exquisite testimonials on the new website and to
for designing and implementing phase one with her Dope-idesign (please email her if you would like some work done). It was an absolute Joy to read your clear concise language
and a bit of an emotional roller-coaster to remind me of how these teachings have transformed and impacted your life. Sometimes I get into autopilot of what the Universe wants me to do next, what I am downloading next or delivering next but I am humbled to acknowledge the pure magic of what is, has been and what is coming. With that being said I hope you join me on this immense roller-coaster of Joy as I build the new center for our community and bring back Monday Meditations next month XO. FYI: My new happy drum is in transit from Russia and will be making its grand debut at our art O Show as well as the beach Reiki Circle this month (beach circles for next 3 months).



Love and Light to you always

Learn to Read your Own Birth Chart for 2016

Jan 17nd, 1.30pm-3.30pm (post circle)

Soffeah (Aarti is now Soffeah) will be giving you her insights into 2016 as well as teaching you how to read your own birthchart. Soffeah learned to read her own chart and will teach you how to know what is coming in the forecast so to be prepared for the year ahead. There are four Mercury Retrogrades best to know how to get the best out of these cleaners of miscommunication.

This year is power packed with ACTION more than before. To me astrology is making friends with the planetary energies, and syncing this ACTION with TIMING in ALIGNMENT with your true self. 2015 was the beginning of dissolving all pretense and now that all the masks are dropping off, it’s time to EMERGE our true-self and EVOLVE in HARMONEY. We will go through understanding the basics of astrology (your sun, moon, ascendant), explanation of the zodiacs, houses, the planets and their specific energetic expressions, cosmic events in every quarter, cyclical events (full moons, new moons), Major celestial events (Eclipses, retrogrades, trines, conjuncts, global sacred events, solstice). Everything in this universe is there to help you only if you are willing to tap into its WISDOM. We will connect with this WISDOM using Reiki, tap away any unwanted energy patterns with EFT and meditate for downloads from the supercomputer. If you would like, feel free to email me your birthdate and location at and I can generate your birth-chart for you.

This will be a quarterly event to check in a forecast the next part of the journey!

Online Reiki Circles
Sunday July 31st w/Soffeah




As our Joy connection is getting more pow
erful the community is going through a rapid transfiguration.  Zoom Gathering gives the community the opportunity deepen, expand and remember the teachings to push further. This is when we do it, no time to stop, tap on the go, no time to procrastinate, tap in and expand. Double the doing, efficient time expansion
and most of all doing what you need to do when you need to do it!!! It is very easy to drop your practice and if this has happened get back on the wagon and go-go-go!




Learn the Reiki Path to Living you Joy 

Be the change you want to see in the World starts with you!

This healing, spiritual path, journey, way I have created is based on the Hero’s Journey to know thyself be true. As it is only once we clean our own personal individual energy that we connect collectively in oneness for the betterment of humanity. So why should you bother doing any spiritual work?

Well for one, you didn’t come here to be an accountant, bra sales person or mechanic; you came here to bring forward the treasure that lies within you and perhaps you don’t even know what that is but don’t you think it is work exploring, because I do!

For me to make you, your own Hero I’m going to push you, be the bad guy, be the good guy, be the villain, be the loved one, be whatever you decide you want me to be for you to reach for your greatness. Ever notice how people go around looking for Guru’s to disappoint them and then they find the ones that do disappoint them, bingo you were right and got what you wanted. Now what, did the ego win another delay to do what you need to do when you need to do it? That’s just another barricade to loving, devoting, giving yourself over – You see a Guru doesn’t do it to you, a Guru is only there to shine light on what you are not seeing, being and ultimately cease your game of hide and seek with yourself. Peek a boo, I see you and that can be scarey, relieving and vulnerable – Ready to be free?

Pause in Joy Reiki Books available prior to class. Reiki III and Masters will be discussed with Patti directly due to the work need to prepare.  
If any of these dates do not work for your schedule please email and we can sync our calendars and get you going.  Reiki Master Teacher Training, please email for appointment to discuss application.

Los Angeles w/Patti
July 13th, 23th &  30th  
Long Beach, w/Soffeah
July 9th and 23rd


Reiki One teaches awakens that they are energetic beings having a physical experience. This awakening of energetic alignment to the subtle bodies re-establishes a discernment of the mind, body and soul connection to everything. This infinite unified field of CONSCIOUSNESS taps you into the the grid of our own healing, knowing, empowerment and self-centered peacefulness.

Focusing on this subtle life-force energy that underlies everything gives each student the opportunity to shift anything in their life before it manifests physically.

The possibilities unveiled reveal a new world with new creative potential liberated from fears, anxiety, procrastination, undisciplined apathy and jealousy. Each student has a different journey as each person’s TRUTH is revealed to them uniquely. The path of living your fullest life is in your own hands as the self-healing modality is only a small part of a larger journey to the THINKING problem that plagues society.

Reiki II : The Conscience Becomes Conscious

July 20th- 21th, 2 days w/Patti
July 29th-30th w/Soffeah

Message me for more dates available.

Reiki II is at least 30 days post Reiki I as students know when they are ready for this level as a specific aspect will rise from the consciousness telling me you are ready.  This level of Reiki at Pause in Joy is known by students’ as the #gamechanger. It is for students wishing to forge a deeper connection to this powerful energy by clearing past/present/future fears and limitations and connect to their own inner listener, guidance and live a full rich abundant life..

Reiki II is considered professional practitioner level. You will learn to use three separate Reiki energy streams not only via symbols but acute awareness of vibration. Symbols only focus your intent but it is the reservoir of energy behind a symbol that is your connection. The symbols connect you fast to the unified field, while another calms and stills the emotions and lastly, to send energy through time-space.

As this level is practitioner level, Patti believes to heal yourself or others one must start cleaning your own house unresolved issues will only come to the surface to amplify their release. Reiki II unveils an awareness that has no room for blame, or excuses but identifies addictions, emotional tranquilizers and all personal distractions that have impeded your evolution to your personal greatness.

You will learn to liberate yourself from eons of THINKING small, thinking in self preservation and most of all thinking in lack from a fear based mentality.  As we sending energy to every year in your life the transformation will reunite you to the person you always knew you had the potential to be.

Reiki III : The Conscience Becomes Conscious

Aug 6th and 7th
2 days: 9am – 6pm

Reiki III is a future trajectory from Reiki II as the patterns, predictability and comfort zones are dissolved. As each Reiki II student meticulously chose personal milestones to send energy back to in Reiki II these milestones were limitations to a personal vantage point invested in the story and identity held with it. Reiki III, is an energetic experiential journey of no linear absolutes but transforming into a multidimensional journey to create future possibilities from no preordained past patterns.Reiki III is the practitioner level of Reiki Masters allowing students the use the energy of the Master symbol without FULLY INTENTIONALLY COMMITTING to teach. Reiki III embodies a level of seva to the community to GIVE and partake in Reiki Circle with no personal attachment to the fruits of your action. A commitment to participant in community Reiki Circles for six months gives you the opportunity to experience holding the space for 6-8 individuals within the attunement process and calibrating to the energy you are tapping in to.

In preparation for Reiki III, one month before class, two very distinct versions of one life will run in parallel to then melt into one dynamic story. This level all symbols are unveiled, new forms of connection through the sound of the Kotodama, breathwork and physical kriya practices. Your commitment to embraced your TRUTH offers an opportunity for you to PRESENT to the Reiki community a 20-30 minute metaphysical presentation on any subject close to your heart. This presentation is without limits, and is your creative connection to fear, doubt and doing it anyway.
