One small leap

Babysteps.  That is my approach to taking on a task that seems daunting.  Just take babysteps.  Don't try to take on too much.  Just get your feet wet.  Gradually work your way to the pace that is comfortable to you.  Right?  Sounds like good, sound advice.

But.....Isn't there usually a but.  There are times when taking a small leap can make the spirit soar.  I am taking a leap this week.  I'm doing something that scares me.  I'm putting myself out into the world.  Ok, at least my small corner of it anyway. 

I took a new path to healing earlier this year when I began practicing Reiki.  I learned Reiki for me and for my family.  Mostly for me.  I had researched it to death and decided to give it a go.  I absolutely love Reiki.  Being able to use Reiki as a means to help my body, mind & spirit heal has been life changing for me.  Now that I am able to send distance Reiki, my life has been enhanced even more.  Knowing that I can be of assistance to someone who is suffering in some manner really makes me feel like I have yet another purpose in my life.

So here's the leap.  I've taken my love of healing to the next level.  I have given my Reiki practice a name.  Shining Life Healing has been born.  Its my baby and its still developing, but it feels so right for me.  My intention in this life is to live it as shiny as possible and to share that shine with anyone who is ready to accept it. 

This new addition in my life, brings forward so many possibilities and challenges as well.  Balancing my home life with this Reiki practice is going to be tricky, because I have a tendency to try to please everyone at the same time.  That is a recipe for disaster.  I have first hand experience with disasters like that and I can't let it happen again.  I know that I will experience some growth along with this new adventure and I am looking forward to it.

So here's another leap that I'm willing to take.  I have my eye on a portable Reiki table that I think will meet my need to share this healing practice with others.  I know that my Mr. Man would have no issue with us purchasing this table, but I would like to be able to purchase this on my own.  So I'm going to make an offer to all of you.  I'm going to be doing 10 thirty minute Reiki sessions for $15 each and 10 distance Reiki sessions for $10 each.  These sessions will run for the next 2 weeks.  Being able to raise this money on my own and not having to ask Mr. Man is very empowering to me.  We can all use some good empowering, right?

You can let me know if you are interested in taking one of these sessions by reaching me at jklenzmeier (at) frontiernet (dot) net.  Or you can notify me on Twitter @shinyme.  I would love to be able to share Reiki with each of you. 

Phew! That was one small leap I just took.  I'm a little shaky, but I know that putting myself out here like this is going to be yet another small step I take towards being the best shiny me I can be.

Just my thoughts.
