This morning I'm going into my office to prepare the space for the Open House next weekend. I'm such a raw, sensitive person that when I feel joyful and full, it almost hurts. Right now my heart is overwhelmed and overflowing with thankfulness for the incredible people in my community who have been so vulnerable with me, always bringing their hearts, their smiles, their deep questions. I am often approached and thanked for the work I do, but I have no words for the level of deep appreciation I feel within. I learn SO MUCH from all of you. Every breath I take, I am aware of the people on my news list, and in my circle, living their lives each moment.

This year held a lot for all of us. I received calls this year from two different families wherein my client had passed on (aka, died). I think because this is a business, people may assume that there are limits on my level of emotional committment, that I don't remember the work, or that the things befalling you outside of session do not affect me, but I bleed with all of you.

Honestly, while in session if I channel, I WILL forget details, but I NEVER forget the energy. I never forget the feeling of your heart, of your dreaming self, and the shining beauty of your unfettered soul. When you leave I wish you well, and in gentle spirit, I often wonder what has happened for people. If I don't hear, I always assume the best. But when I do hear of death or struggle, my higher self holds the light for you, and my human self mourns with you.

I think that's a good thing. It's a very alive way to be. When someone dies, I mourn. When our children become adults and go off to college, I sweat behind the scenes, sending light. When you have received work raises, published books, created art, written new music, reconciled with family, made peace, found love-- my soul sings for you. Your success is my success. There's word for that: Mudita.

Perhaps one would think a "healer-ish" way would be to step into NEUTRAL and not feel such attachment. Buddhism teaches that attachment creates desire. Desire forges connection. In fact, I love desire and connection; they are such human experience. I believe those feelings of connection make us stronger as a community, and make me stronger as a practitioner. This year there were multiple marriages in our community. There were some big career changes too, and a few people who stepped out of deep depression back into the colorful swing of joy. My heart swells with love for these things.

In the sacred space of session work, it's a necessity for me to find neutral and rise above my ego investments in order to access the channel. In sacred space, I work as hard as I can to see beyond the immediate challenges to the long karmic cycle of your whole soul's existence.

The spiritual channel is filled with so much wisdom and insight, it's worth it to put aside desire to access this deeper vision IN SESSION. At the same time, it's my deep appreciation for your humanity, your struggles, your light AND your shadow that compel me to do this work. My human self is in adoration for the strength of our community, and the very human, loving way, I see us reaching out and holding one another when things come up in life.

Some of you work tirelessly in jobs advising, supporting, and providing the basics for others. Then there are you crazy nomads who are constantly crossing the globe on a solitary mission. I love and follow you all. I have been behind desks for 14 hour days doing work in tight spaces and changing hearts one-by-one. I have also been the international traveller picking up foreign languages and using everything at my disposal to create new bridges where there was none. I've connected with heads of state and beggers in the same day. I've lived by the fire of my ego. I've also lived humbled in my heart. Through these experiences I'm convinced there is linear experience and NO RIGHT WAY. There are only creative choices hopefully fueled by love.

Perhaps I'm rambling a little bit. This morning I'm going into my office to decorate for the open house. I don't know who will be there in a week, at the Open House. In past years I've worried about being alone. But this year I feel the tangible connection of a thousand hearts doing the work accross the country. Some of you I know can't be there, but. . . but you ARE, through this thread of love. You are not alone. Neither am I. We are witnessing each other making incredible causes for good fortune and happiness. We are witnessing each other learning. As a community, we are strong.

Sending you love. ~ Dailey

CD Release! 10 TIPS TO THRIVING IN 2017

Posted by healingheartreiki on November 26, 2016 at 12:25 AM Comments comments (0)


Tonight I'm listening to one of my favorite musicians, and I'm excited because Yerevan and I have completed our own CD. It's not music, it's an audio recording we did while high on life and love through the spirit channel.


Filled with details about useful flower essences, herbs, and crystals to support the energies of 2017, the CD really does cover a lot. Yerevan plugs in some helpful astrological tips, explaining how to determine what in your chart is being affected. I added my own insights around living the spiritual life. We even deconstructed the 10 Commandments featured in the bible, looking at these ideas of right living and what empowered living looks like from a non-religious perspective in a year rife with karma and transformation.

This 2-CD set is available now, via my website: http://www.santarosareiki.com/2017-tips.

BONUS: The first 20 people will receive a special VIP bonus event in January where they'll get the opportunity to ask whatever personal concerns may be up for the new year. At the January event (most likely held in a private zoom room online), we'll look at the specifics of timing, political revolution, and more. It's a good night.


I'm full of the love of my closest friends, and even though my heart bleeds for so many things happening in the world right now, I recognize that this is the time for us as spiritual beings to rise up, wake up, and live our heart truths.

Martin Luther King Jr once said, "One of the great liabilities of history is that all too many people fail to remain awake through great periods of social change. Every society has its protectors of status quo and its fraternities of the indifferent who are notorious for sleeping through revolutions. Today, our very survival depends on our ability to stay awake, to adjust to new ideas, to remain vigilant and to face the challenge of change." I find myself asking, How will we face the changes coming? What will these changes reveal about what is within us?

In some ways I think the audio CD holds the foundational mindset for entering into a revolutionary year. I hope you'll take a listen, and that you find it helpful.

Full Moon Ceremony: Cacao Brew for Strength of Heart

Posted by healingheartreiki on November 6, 2016 at 10:00 AM Comments comments (0)

Hi all! I hope you'll join me for this Full Moon in Taurus. This will be such a beautiful night. I am already creating a special essence formulation for the evening, and I think it will be a lot of fun, and very powerful for us to weave an energetic brew together, with options to sprinkle in just the medicine necessary for your personal cup.




As I have continued to witness the developing situations around Standing Rock, and other important movements like Black Lives Matter, and Occupy, I have no doubt that we as a country are opening to deeper emotional intelligence. There has been a lot of pain this year, and you may have felt it too, as a malaise or uncomfortable low feeling in your heart and energy field.




The Taurus moon brings an earthy energy that can help ground our emotions into helpful processes that will resonate into next year. For this month's ceremony, I'm pulling out the Guatamalan Ceremonial Cacao for a very gentle ceremony to help us transmute the watery scorpio energy of the month into divine Gratitude that can allow us to awaken our inner strength.


I love the Cacao for bringing insight. As we stir the pot together, bringing in coconut milk, almond milk, flower essences, honey, roses, bee pollen, song, prayer, or other treats for our personal drinks, we're really calling on our earth allies and ancestors to awaken a strength that has always been within us. We are warriors, all.




As we head into the holiday season and family/friends gatherings, we'll need strength in our hearts to filter out personal ego and welcome in joy. Let's heal our hearts together.


This also brings so much healing and support to the social movements of our time.


The light we create in sacred space is a balm for the collective pain of our country.


DATE: Tuesday November 15th @ 5:30 PM.


BRING: Your favorite drinking mug, a pillow to sit on. A journal. Dress comfortably. We'll begin with a meditation and move into interactive ritual.


PAYMENT: $37 (or $35 if paid in cash). Payment secures your rsvp. You are welcome to pay at the event link: http://www.santarosareiki.com/full-moon-ceremony-nov-15


Please RSVP ahead of time, as space is limited. :-)


love & blessings,

Freedom & Action

Posted by healingheartreiki on November 3, 2016 at 11:00 AM Comments comments (0)

The rains of the past few weeks have felt so clearing to my spirit! Welcome to November! It's a month that reminds me of all of the good things about family and community.




Jennifer Webb continues to see people in the evenings for Classic Reiki sessions (sliding scale avail). I've heard great feedback, and that her Reiki is really showing good physical effects for people who are struggling with health challenges and anxiety. Jennifer's email is [email protected] if you have questions for her, or want to set up an appointment.


I (Dailey) continue to hone the craft of Reiki Intuitive & Shamanic work, and holding visionary space during sessions. With the intense energies of October, I've had many interesting visions around the nature of humanity and life, which I hope to share in my blog at some point. Meanwhile, after an October break from teaching Reiki, I'm gearing up for two classes this month, and already feeling excitement about the teachings.




I've also been reminded that these Reiki teachings are not meant to exist in a bubble of their own, but to help us take real action within our lives, to improve our lives, for happiness. This was the spirit in which Mikao Usui (founder) taught Reiki. Although Reiki has shifted over the last 100 years, that spirit of creating happiness has not.


Right now, there are some people trying to build an oil pipeline in a place that would be a major threat to healthy water access and tribal lands. If the pipe were to leak (which they ALL have within about 5 years) it would result in a major ecological and human disaster. The pipeline was originally going to go through a town but when the townspeople complained, the company instantly moved the pipeline to go near tribal lands because they would face less resistance. You may have heard about this: the Dakota Access Pipeline. This is the first time in several years that all native american tribes have gathered to protest as a united front with the Standing Rock Sioux.


Peaceful protestors have been assulted with attack dogs, sprays, and bullets. President Obama, Amnesty International, and now the United Nations have all become involved, but the mainstream media is not covering it. There has been an increasing trend in media not to share these major newsworthy conflicts that center around human rights in our country.


This November, with the coming Presidential Elections and as we gather in our communities to celebrate Thanksgiving, perhaps one of the most important things we can celebrate is our Freedom.


Freedom and quality of life are rights we still fight to keep & improve everyday. When we're comfortable with our small luxuries, it's easy to fall under a spell and forget the importance of taking daily physical action to underscore our inner beliefs and values. The November elections are not just about the next President, but we are also voting for the people who will represent us locally, and who will ultimately institutionalize the changes that directly affect our well being.


If you, like others, have been emotionally triggered by the Presidential race, or by the year's increasingly dramatic human rights and racial terrorism themes, I invite you to turn more of your attention to your local running officials and the important ballot measures that are up for vote. These will directly affect you, your physical well-being, and how you engage spiritually with the world around you.


In Reiki we're reminded that we are Physical, Emotional, Intellectual, and Spiritual-- and these aspects are interwoven in our being. They can not be fully separated. Our energy work with Reiki directly affects our physical body, and likewise it's a powerful gift to remember that our Reiki Mindset can transform our social lives, and our society.


Rising costs, GMOs, air quality, the bodily rights and the rights to free speech and expression we take for granted--these Freedoms are dynamic, and when we do not use them, they shrivel within us or are taken from us.


Spiritual growth, development, and happiness are NOT seperate from our daily lives and challenges.


Sometimes we are so deeply in a survival mode that the idea taking social action feels like too much.


That's why as a community, we have to work together. If you take anything from this newsletter, take from it the reminder that YOU are important, and that whatever little action you can do to express your beliefs and truths through your life, it's important.


If you can vote, then vote. It is a spiritual act too. If you can't vote (or don't want to) maybe you can raise others to the task. Or fill out a written protest.

For some, the work of the month may not be voting, it may be signing up for that class that's always beckoned, or simply trying to find some kindness and gratitude at a complicated Thanksgiving Dinner. BUT WHATEVER YOUR WORK IS, DO IT. Because right now, this month, the world needs you.


Change begins in our hearts, but it ripples out through our actions. We are strongest, together!


In vision, I have seen that the Standing Rock conflict is an important action point in the spiritual light web of our country. How we hold energy around this particular event will have a direct impact on the spiritual wellness of our country for years to come. On November 15th we will be doing a full moon ceremony to awaken our inner strength, ancestral love, and elevating gratitude around Standing Rock, as well your more personal awakening points into the holiday season. Let me know if you'd like to join.


Happy Thanksgiving,


Dailey Little

JULY ReikiSHARE Report

Posted by healingheartreiki on July 5, 2016 at 12:30 PM Comments comments (0)

July ReikiSHARE Report

Fourth of July Weekend is always a memorable share. This one had some beautiful healing miracles. 19 of us gathered above the Goat for our morning share. We did a simple welcoming of Reiki light into each of the chakras. Oh! Our check-in was around what we do to get out of a funky place. It was so rich! I noticed that most of us found nature to be the ultimate reset button. 

Our Reiki Circle included some distance healing, and healing for our own complex lives. The metaphor we used this time was a large pond of water, and each of us as Lotus Flowers on the water's edge, drinking up life and transforming everything into nourishment.

After, we split into 3 tables (Isis, Crystal, and Lotus). People floated around, taking breaks as needed, and we closed with Announcements. Regula is still look for people who would like to receive Meridian healing (her telephone number is posted in the April ReikiShare update, I think). I feel like there are all sorts of things going on, but I don't remember them anymore. I KNOW, it was only on saturday, but sitting in a field with fireworks going off in each direction has wiped my brain clean, lol.

Happy July!
