What you read below is an email I sent to my friend on the discussion of ReiKi that I somehow geared towards distant attunements....Thought it was interesting and wanted to share with you: (please excuse the typos)
I've empowered my middle son to Reiki 1, my youngest wasnt yet however I believe that he does work with the energy... (after all it is deep within us anyway...our connection to the Source) and I have empowered/attuned my mother to Reiki 1. That empowerment was a distant one....I am a believer in distant attunements...I find they work just like in person ones... after all Universal Spiritual Energy is infinite and all pervasive.... so it knows no time and space limitations. its the intent and of course commitment of both parties. The "sensations" I've felt were very similar in both cases...as I have received distant and in person attunements for all three levels. I've studied reiki with 5 different people -- 4 in person and 1 distant.
My very first attunement happened impromtu at a festival I attended. I had no idea what to expect...my experience was that my hands kept repeatedly heating up and cooling down...it was a wonderful experience and beginning and I will always be honored to have Lady Rachel,
an independent Reiki Master in Diane Steins tradition, in my lineage.
Prior to that my only experience had been from reading Diane Steins' book....(during which I had a spontaneous ReiKi experience) If ReiKi truly is Universal or Primal Spiritual Energy than it is possible to have spontaneous Reiki experience... spontaneous reconnections to the Source of Life and healing...cause that connections is always there if only we would tune into it. Its all very simple.
After reading Diane Steins' book Essential Reiki I was moved to repeat outloud that I accept healing from the Source of Life...and within several seconds I felt a surge of light energy come in thru my Left hand all the way down that side of my body....after that the pain I had been experiencing...that was growing worse and worse each day in my left leg especially and vein heaviness in both legs have NEVER come back.
After the attunement with my mother...she said her hands tingled greatly and she felt a warm calmness come over her..... She wanted to do it again soon.....
Some people are opposed to distant attunements. I think they are subject to individual situations and sincerity. It amazes me how people want to put absolutes on ReiKi.... how can you confine something that is infinite.... Spiritual Energy....which comes from the Source of Life... what ever that is.... God--etc..... is infinite and all pervasive.... Energy never dies it just transforms....
To this I append:
After all Usui-sensei's experience was a spontaneous one without the intervention of another human being.
I think after a while become once again disconnected from Truth and Source.
I am in no way belittling the need for a "teacher" or even the "teacher-student" dynamic.
However, I do believe that our finite minds at work tend to gear towards the conditioned state and continues to want to be imprisoned in Maya and separation... that we are indeed separated from the Source, that it is not within us and that we must have someone external set us straight.
At the same time I believe that my physical connection to you is important I also believe that I have my own connection....does that make any sense? I need you just as much as I don't need you....because we are ONE.....However, in this state of apparent separation we do need that connection to be manifested in the physical.
Existing in state of duality in this earth plane....it is and it is not.

We are born from the womb of our Mothers....
We are born from the dark, black womb of our Mother....
From out of the void we came....
black hole springs Life....
The mightiest force in the
cosmos is the silent power of
Divine Mother's pure love.
Seek within your heart and
discover Her presence
there in the form of peace,
bliss, and divine love."
Shanti, Shanti, Shanti......

Misty sun and moon halos now being seen around the earth fulfill one of the last signs, according to Hopi propecy, that signals the end of an age and that a Great Purification is about to begin.
"'Now we are at the very end of our trail. Many people no longer recognize the true path of the Great Spirit. They have, in fact, no respect for the Great Spirit or for our precious Mother Earth, who gives us all life.
Nature itself does not speak with a voice that we can easily understand... Who in this world can speak for nature and the spiritual energy that creates and flows through all life?''
Banyacya said it is necessary for human beings that have not separated themselves from the land and nature to speak out.
Verily we are guilty of the seven deadly sins, what are they?
Gluttony, pride, greed....
Did you hear about the tornado that ripped through Atlanta? And we think it has nothing to with the destruction of the landscape...the clearing of trees and building of condos and new homes...the drying up of Lake Lanier.....the drought....
This is all a result of Western man's worship of the Almighty Dollar....we are killing our selves...yet our minds are too enslaved by high fructose corn syrup, fluoride, celebrity gossip & haute couture to remove our minds from the Matrix.
Blessed Great Spirit please allow us time to free our minds....

One day we will learn to act with loving compassion. Even for those for whom we may feel are errant in their ways. Stoning women because they were raped, chopping off hands for stealing, removing girls clitorises and sewing them up in the name of purity...when will this ever end.
Would we, as human beings, behave this way if we used more than 10% of our brain capacity?
Gay Iranian granted asylum reprieve
Thu Mar 13, 2008 7:01pm GMT
LONDON (Reuters) - A gay Iranian teenager was granted a reprieve on Thursday from deportation to Iran, where he says he could be hanged for his homosexuality.
Home Secretary Jacqui Smith said in a statement that "in the light of new circumstances" 19-year-old Mehdi Kazemi's appeal for asylum should be reconsidered.
"This is very positive. But reconsidered doesn't mean he'll get a permit, they could still deny what he is asking," Kazemi's Dutch lawyer, Borg Palm, told Reuters by telephone.
Kazemi came to Britain to study in 2005, lawyers have said. He later learned that his lover in Iran had been hanged after being charged and convicted of sodomy. Homosexuality is illegal in the Islamic republic.
Fearing for his life, Kazemi sought asylum in Britain, but his claim was rejected.
Members of the Lords urged Smith earlier on Thursday to show mercy and grant Kazemi asylum in Britain, where his uncle has lived for 30 years.
"We are deeply concerned at the possible execution of Mehdi Kazemi if he is refused asylum in the UK and is deported to Iran," read a letter to Smith signed by 63 members of the Lords.
Kazemi fled to the Netherlands and sought asylum there, but a Dutch court this week turned down his application, saying as he had applied in Britain he must return there to pursue his case.
He is due to be deported from the Netherlands back to Britain within days, the Independent said on Thursday.
Human rights groups and gay rights advocates have rallied to Kazemi's cause, highlighting the Iranian government's track record of executing homosexuals.
"If returned to Tehran, he will be at risk of imprisonment, torture and execution," said Peter Tatchell, the founder of Outrage, a gay rights group.

A friend of mine brought this to my attention. You may read on here or click the link to read in totality:
People of the world, the US Government is planning to poison more than two million people, in California, using an untested biological "pesticide" this summer. Your attention and action on this subject is needed in the most important way.
On January 24th, 2008, United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Secretary Chuck Conner announced the availability of $74.5 million in emergency funding to combat the light brown apple moth (LBAM) infestation in California (1). President Bush's recent budget proposal sent to Congress sets aside $330 Million to eradicate plant pests, like the Light Brown Apple Moth.
On Febuary 13th, 2008, the CDFA and USDA, in conjunction, announced their action plan for aerial spraying untested poison on people. This is from the CDFA Press Release "Aerial treatments are expected to begin June 1 in the infested areas of Monterey and Santa Cruz counties, with subsequent aerial treatments expected to begin August 1 in San Francisco, Daly City, Colma, Oakland, Piedmont, Emeryville, Albany, El Cerrito, El Sobrante, Tiburon and Belvedere. The treatments in these areas are designed to be reapplied at 30- to 90-day intervals while the moths are active." (http://www.cdfa.ca.gov/egov/Press_Releases/Press_Release.asp?PRnum=08-010)
This is now clear and reprehensible evidence of State and Federal Government's attempting to commit a large scale crime against the American people. Let's forget about supposed Terrorists for a second, and lets pay attention to this biological attack planned on our fellow neighbors. The presence of a minuscule pest, no more dangerous than an ant, is no excuse to douse millions with chemicals. Remember, this aerial "treatment" plan is to disrupt the mating habits of a harmless apple moth. Disrupting mating habits does not eliminate the moth, nor is it an effective or proven treatment to stop the apple moth. What should be of Alarm! is that their are NO CROPS IN CITIES! So why are they going to spray cities?
Now here is where we all get together and sing Kum ba Yah .....
We are driven to distraction with all the high fructose corn syrup in our foods and all the celebrity gossip in the news.....all to distract us....

Good Morning! Not quite 6am here.
And I have yet to turn off my Dr. Thompson sleep cd.
I began using Dr. Jeffery Thompson's Brain Wave music to help me sleep after a hospitalization I had a year and half ago.
I was emotionally drained, on edge and vulnerable that I could not sleep for fear that something would happen to me related to my hospitalization. Not a good place to be in when you are alone, far from family and have children to care for.
The emotional mud slide was building up due to lack of sleep that only after using these sleep cds (He has cds for Creativity, Meditation, etc...as well) was I able to actually go into a sleep at night and began to emotionally heal and physically heal.
Being sleep deprived and emotionally stressed after an illness can leave one very open and vulnerable.
Thankfully I have healed since then and move towards greater and greater strengths. :-)
You can find out more about Dr. Jeffrey Thompson via his website Center for NeuroAcoustic Research.
To this day I continue to be a big fan and highly recommend his music.
Remember I told you about a Physiology exam I was to take? Well I almost aced it.... missed one question out of 48. And I also made an A (missed one) on the short terminology quiz that was given.

I'd like to share with you an article a dear friend of mine sent to me last night. I went and searched the original source and it is linked below.
You are what you eat, so eat well.
Whole Food Signatures
A stupendous insight of civilisations past has now been confirmed by today's investigative, nutritional sciences. They have shown that what was once called "The Doctrine of Signatures" was astoundingly correct.
Referred to in the classical period of Rome as the "Law of Similarities" it is now called by scientists, "Teleological Nutritional Targeting".
It now contends that every whole food has a pattern that resembles a body organ or physiological function and that this pattern acts as a signal or sign as to the benefit the food provides the eater.
|A sliced Carrot looks like the human eye. The pupil, iris and radiating lines look just like the human eye...and YES science now shows that carrots greatly enhance blood flow to and function of the eyes.|
|A Tomato has four chambers and is red. The heart is red and has four chambers. All of the research shows tomatoes are indeed pure heart and blood food.|
|Grapes hang in a cluster that has the shape of the heart. Each grape looks like a blood cell and all of the research today shows that grapes are also profound heart and blood vitalizing food.|
|A Walnut looks like a little brain, a left and right hemisphere, upper cerebrums and lower cerebelums. Even the wrinkles or folds are on the nut just like the neo-cortex. We now know that walnuts help develop over 3 dozen neuro-transmitters for brain function.|
|Kidney Beans actually heal and help maintain kidney function and yes, they look exactly like the human kidneys.|
Celery, Bok Choy, Rhubarb and more look just like bones. These foods specifically target bone strength. Bones are 23% sodium and these foods are 23% sodium. If you don't have enough sodium in your diet the body pulls it from the bones, making them weak. These foods replenish the skeletal needs of the body.
|Egg Plant, Avocadoes and Pears target the health and function of the womb and cervix of the female - they look just like these organs. Today's research shows that when a woman eats 1 avocado a week, it balances hormones, sheds unwanted birth weight and prevents cervicle cancers. And how profound is this? .... it takes exactly 9 months to grow an Avocado from blossom to ripened fruit. There are over 14,000 phytolytic chemical constituents of nutrition in each one of these foods (modern science has only studied and named about 141 of them).|
|Figs are full of seeds and hang in twos when they grow. Figs increase the motility of male sperm and increase the numbers of sperm as well to overcome male sterility.|
|Sweet Potatoes look like the pancreas and actually balance the glycemic index of diabetics.|
|Olives assist the health and function of the ovaries|
|Grapefruits, Oranges, and other Citrus fruits look just like the mamary glands of the female and actually assist the health of the breasts and the movement of lymph in and out of the breasts.|
|Onions look like body cells. Todays research shows that onions help clear waste materials from all of the body cells. They even produce tears which wash the epithelial lasyers of the eyes|
|Bananas, Cucumber, Zuchini and more target the size and strengh of the male sexual organ. It's true!|
|Peanuts have a profound effect on the testicles and sexual libido. Peanuts were banned as a food for males by the church ofin during the middle ages. Most people don't realize that arginine, the main component of Viagra, comes from peanuts.|

CHIA SEED IS NOW FEATURED
Chia Seeds are THE BEST source of
Omega-3 & Omega-6 essential fatty acids!
These seeds are perfect for diabetics &
people watching or trying to lose weight.
Chia Seeds are also very beneficial to the
heart and extremely high in fiber, calcium, high
quality protein, slowly processed carbohydrates
and loaded with vitamins & minerals and antioxidants!
The health benefits of Omega-3
fatty acids are becoming widely known.
What is not as well known is that the
chia seed is THE BEST source of Omega-3.
CHIA SEED IS BETTER THAN
FISH OIL & FLAX SEED!
Chia seed is high in protein
and high in calcium. 5 times the calcium of milk, 631 mg per 100 grams of seed.
Chia seeds are also high in protein,
with 18 grams per 100 grams of seed.
The optimum ratio of Omega-3 to
Omega-6 should be 3:1.
Chia seed provides that ratio.
Chia seed is hydrophilic.
Absorbing up to 14 times
(Mix @ 9-10 times) its weight in water.
This helps extend energy and endurance.
Chia seed is rich in antioxidant oils.
Chia contains chlorogenic acid, and
caffeic acid as well as myricetin,
quercetin, and kaempferol flavonols.
These compounds are both primary and synergistic antioxidants that contribute
to the strong antioxidant activity of chia.
