It amazes me that it has been almost a month since I last wrote here! Things continue to be busy at Healing Heart Reiki. It takes daily dedication to establish the foundation of energy in our new spot, which I so easily took for granted after working from the same space in Railroad Square for shy on a decade.
Outside in this new and beautiful place, the wildflowers are blooming as the spring rain continues. Inside, I still have 20 boxes of fabric, admin, and crafting materials to unpack. Small things continue to slide into place. We now have a chopping block for the kitchen, which now effectively allows for 4 work stations if we choose to do summer creative herbal classes.
This morning my son awoke sneezing and blowing his nose. It felt good to cook up a vat of hot soup in an iron cauldron. My Reiki practice continues to teach me that everything is energy, and I've learned to allow the upwelling of lovingkindness I develop in my Reiki practice to overflow in all of my healing efforts. I stirred soup with intention. I allowed Reiki to flow from me as I listened to my son's needs. Sometimes he loves when I simply lay hands on with Reiki. This morning my inner listening, developed from decades of daily practice, told me that what he needed most was lavender essential oil massaged into his temples and head. Between that and soup, he was just fine by dinner.
It's easy to wait for dis-ease to show up before taking action. However, the more deeply we slow down and listen ahead of time, we can nourish into our lives and prevent illness from even occuring. I read an article about a woman who was 117 years old (She as actually born in the 1800s!). What really struck me is that she took time and listened to herself. She trusted her inner authority.
This afternoon I caught up with myself, flipping through paperwork on my desk at a snail's pace. I chose not to rush, instead, listening within for what creativity--what gems and insights--might come up if I could simply translate the loving attention of my Reiki practice into the practice of my everyday life. I discovered deep appreciation as I did this. This world is a colorful place filled with miracles. We choose in every moment whether we want to trudge ahead relentlessly with thankless determination, or rest our sights on those miracles and give thanks as our future unfolds.

I'm so happy to finally be writing this blog from our new space on College Avenue. The last few months have been such a whirl since I last wrote to you. I'm amazed that what was, last year, just a dream and an idea (a Healing/Meditation Center) is finally happening. We are in a lovely old rambling Victorian that will, over time, become a strikingly beautiful and heart stirring space for all of our community gatherings.
At the beginning of February, we had our first Reiki Share here. There were 22 people, all devoted to exploring energy and sharing hearts. We had so much fun! The party lingered into the afternoon, and my heart was full of love as I watched friends and strangers connecting and healing. For one moment I wondered, "Is this space still too small?" but it was awesome to see people scatter through the house in small groups, filling it up with sound and laughter. It's the perfect size for where we're at. I felt inspired. This dream I've held in my heart so long now has space to grow.
Jennifer Webb, Pearl Greenlaw, and I have met quietly in small spurts, discussing future possibilities. I know soon we'll need to open the floor to all of you, because community visions are fulfilled through the intention, love, and action of the community. Soon enough, I'll post about open gatherings where we can explore the future of Healing Heart Reiki together.
For now, we're still settling. Because the space is several hundred feet larger than our old space at Railroad Square, there's a lot of box-unpacking, organization, feng shui, and grounding magic that's happening. I'll try to post soon, and keep you in on these developments.
Meanwhile, private sessions are HAPPENING! We've had about 50 private sessions already in the new space, and are into our third class in the space. With each experience, I feel the loving energy of Reiki being laid into the building. The house has fairies (sweet loving ones!) and it carries a lot of its own energetic intention which, psychically, I am still learning about and tapping into.
If you're interested in taking a class or setting a private session, look at our offerings on the website and schedule online. You can also send me a text! I'm still between assistants, so my response time is quite slow, but I'm here, and the work is happening.
I'll write again soon!

This morning 16 of us met for the monthly ReikiSHARE in the old stone building at Railroad Square. The new SMART train was testing as usual, and the occasional sound of the train’s horn floated up to our morning healing sessions like nostalgic jazz released from the confines of musical pentameter.
Sometimes I feel sentimental about this place. Built to last, the Historic Western Hotel building made it through the 1906 earthquake, witnessed Santa Rosa’s shift from industrial age to the age of technology, and here it still stands, housing bohemians, healers, coffee addicts, and other professionals.
I’m happy to start the new year here, though my sentimentalism is caused by knowing that soon I’ll have to move. I hear it on the wind. Okay, literally, I hear it every time the train blares. Reiki doesn’t need to happen in a quiet environment; healing will occur either way. But I feel my internal shift as an energy practitioner, away from the transformative magic of the railroad crossroads, and into a new phase of deep creativity. Soon, soon, the time will be here. The train horn calls me to action.
I have a dream of Reiki in every household. A hundred years ago, people would have laughed at the idea of cell phones. Now we see them as a necessity (and really, they aren’t!). A hundred years ago, nobody had heard of a Chiropractor, and those who had, thought they were unreliable and possibly even scam artists. Today, almost everyone knows what a chiropractor is, and the general consensus is that sometimes they’re extremely helpful.
These experiences we take for granted today were birthed in the minds and hearts of regular people who had big dreams. It took more than one dreamer. It took many, together, creating a movement that shifted the landscape of our future. Those first dreamers are often seen as crazy. When there is enough momentum, they are seen as weird. When the energy has caught, they are seen as savant. When the energy is established, they are normalized.
In my heart I reflect on the beauty of energy work, and I know that it’s time for us, as light workers, to create the cohesive movement that will make energy work a household reality. Everyone should have the basic skills to heal themselves and others.
I see Reiki as a skeleton key. That is, I see that Reiki is deceptively simple and through its grace and simplicity offers all of the basics that a person needs to know in order to do fantastic healing work and live a mindful life. But. . . the teacher matters. There’s no overarching certifying body of Reiki, and not all teachers teach these basics. Many don’t recognize the power of basics, because it’s much more interesting to do the advanced work. I feel you have to learn your alphabet before you can spell, and if you skip over half of the letters, you’ll never be a great writer. In our American consumerist rush for quick fixes and instant gratification, we’ve forgotten how important the basics are.
Metaphysical work is varied, rich with wisdom, and yet why should we master astral projection or telekinesis if we don’t understand what these gifts can do for our inner state of happiness and communal well-being? We’ve got to begin with the basics, and stabilize well being in our real, day-to-day lives. Reiki is excellent for doing just that.
Today 16 of us held hands, activated light energy, and received healing. Some of us laughed. I saw tears too, but the good kind. I looked at people I love and adore who didn’t see me watching them in deep conversation, and I felt the gifts of community. I felt so lucky to be in this space witnessing not only magic stones and portals, but the magic of friendship, kindness, forgiveness, and—essentially love. We’re not witches in the burning times, here in Santa Rosa, California. We don’t have to hide our inquisitive nature, or our natural blossoming gifts for connecting with life force. We have freedom to explore all that the universe has to offer. With that freedom, we’re awakening a great, shining light from within.
That’s a pretty nice beginning of a movement, for Reiki in every household, I’d say.

It is a quiet Sunday and I am curled up near the heater in my office, typing by twinkling x-mas lights. I feel the positive energy of the season beginning to pour in. Someone asked me the other day about what Reiki looks like in my personal life. At this time of the year, Reiki is my NUMBER 1 DEFENSE for the natural stresses of the holiday season. Here are 3 ways I use Reiki in December!
1. REIKI THE EARS- I've noticed in years past that this is the time of year my son gets sinus infections and colds. I think it has to do with the buildup of sugar from Halloween and Christmas, combined with the emotion and physical body stress of the changing seasons and accompanying expectations.
I Reiki my son's ears and temple for 5 minutes almost every day. When I started doing this, I noticed it reduced his stress levels and allowed us to communicate better about our needs. I also Reiki my own ears. When my ears are exposed to cold weather, my thoughts are more scattered, and my chi-force dissipates. You can Reiki your ears and temples for 5-15 minutes a day to keep the energy flowing and electroagnetic field in the head center in alignment.
2. REIKI THE PORCH- Okay, honestly, I Reiki the whole house! But this time of year, I make a pretty solid habit of sweeping my porch two or three times a week. It's a tiny porch. I live in an appartment. But when I sweep, I draw in Reiki and use the broom as an extension of the energy coming from my hands.
Remember, this pure life force transmutes and brings to wholeness what is disconnected. In Feng sui, the front of our house is a powerful gateway for new energies coming into our lives. Sweeping the porch with positive intention creates a strong magnet for good energies and positive experiences with friends and loved ones over the holiday season.
3. REIKI THE WALLET- It's so easy to spend mindlessly! We've got commercials showing us a million things we don't need. Also, our hearts swell with love and appreciation for people, and we want to buy them everything. While this may not pose a problem, I've found that in my life, it's too easy to end up in January with a depleted wallet and a heart full of love.
Two years ago, I started regularly clearing my wallet of extraneous "stuff" once a week, and sending Reiki into my wallet every day. I hold my bank cards one at a time, and send them violet Reiki light, giving thanks for my abundance and asking for wisdom in how I spend. Doing this has shfited my relationship to money at the holidays. I no longer buy out of guilt, and I often find myself naturally attracted to fantastic gifts for myself and others. Since regularly Reiki-ing my wallet, I've had increased peace of mind around finances, and less stress during holiday shopping.
I hope you find these tips useful! Are there ways YOU use Reiki during the holidays? Join us on Facebook and let me know!

Basic Rights & Brithday Prayers
I can't believe that December is here already. I am ready for a magical month. It's my birthday month, and as I face another year of age and growth, I look around at the strange state that our country is in. People are demanding justice, respect and freedom in the most basic ways. They're saying, "Please don't judge me because I'm Muslim. Please don't assume I'm bad and shoot me because I'm Black. Please don't take away my land because I'm Native American. Please don't fire me from my job because of who I love. Please don't tell me you can grab my p*ssy and disrespect my rights because I'm a woman. Please don't take away my rights to my own body."
Well then. Happy Birthday, me.
I find it deeply ironic that on one hand there are Americans saying:
"I can't believe there's so much pain in this country and that we can be this divided! People need to stop complaining. It's going to be okay. We all need respect. We all matter."
While at the same time there are Native Americans today in North Dakota being tear gassed, concussion grenade bombed, and media-silenced in an extravaganza that has involved over 75 different government agencies including Amnesty International, and garnered international attention for these severe abuses perpetuated by an economcically empowered corporate conglomerate since April 2016. All these Native Americans are doing is standing up for their basic rights, in this case clean water. Yes, they are asking for clean water to not be taken from them in their homes America, and they are being met with militarized war tactics.
Here we have people who have been systematically minimalized and erased by our governement, and who, after the documented genocidal actions of our country in the late 1800s, have tried to live positively and create value in America despite injustice, in order to keep alive their people. I mention this heavy topic because I believe we can no longer close our eyes and say we're amazed at America policies. We can't ask people to stop complaining when there is so much pain across the board, in people of various races, identies, and orientations. The whole world is watching us and mourning. We can mourn too, but we must stand up for the values we would like this country to uphold. We can be scared of what we're seeing, but we can't afford to stop looking at what's happening. We've got to look, so we can figure out how to clean it up, or how to replace it.
Your ONE voice really does make a difference. I read an article the other day about a law enforcement official that refused to bring his officers to protect the North Dakota pipeline because of the thousands of letters he received from the people. "As an elected official, I serve the people, so I must listen," he said.
When I was 16 I was invited to an activist camp to learn how to organize. When I was 21 I accidentally ended up with a 'file' in the FBI and CIA. I didn't do anything (It's a really LONG story). I often joke I'm the most uninteresting activist with a file you could ever find. My activism is through beach cleanups, loving nature, and opening up our healing hearts. My activism is through love. Love is my weapon. It is my medicine. It is my cure.
I'm emotionally sober, heading into this birthday, and thinking of ways I've been asleep at the wheel. On the outside I've had a lot of levity, but within, my seriousness is stark and deep. I see people doing whatever they can to wriggle away from the reality of unrest in the community around them. Shopping like mad, staying especially ebullient, they close their ears to the disturbing suggestions that we're repeating history in the worst of ways. "This is how Hitler rose," people whisper, pointing to documented proof of people in power in the USA who believe what Hitler believed.
I have friends who are drinking themselves silly in an attempt to block out the surreal nature of this year. Others are popping pills, or getting lost in materialism in order to feel good and get the endorphins flowing. My step-father, clean-and-sober from alcohol for 14 years has been talking about alcohol again with longing. I recognize this as him feeling the stress, wanting a reprieve from life's themes. Friends sit on the couch and get lost in Netflix for hours so as not to be with their thoughts. Surrounded by illusion, people run to deeper illusion-inducing habits as a crutch.
I want to roar, like a lion, with all of the right words, but inside, I don't think it's a time for words. It's really a time for people to feel their truth, and find their own way to their light. I want to say, "Don't act like a victim. Don't act beaten. Find your heart pumping blood in that body and DO SOMETHING. Go back to jogging in the mountains. Go dancing. Go yell at a protest with your community. Put your anger to good use. Put your fear to good use." I have two friends who made their way out east to stand with the Standing Rock Sioux, living their beliefs in direct action. I have several friends who have been organizing and protesting this past election on the political front. Others of us gather in the evening, hands held, and sharing our wisdom. We meditate to get clear. We run healing energy and light for protection. We are sending magick across the connected web to bring about the best outcomes. We are all searching our hearts to understand where things went so wrong.
As December begins, I don't see things as wrong at all. Everything is in divine timing. We forget that strife is also an important part of life. The bud of the flower must burst open, pushing its way through green stem. I founded Healing Heart Reiki to help people find their joy, and to heal the world one heart at a time. I believe that in times of unrest we must continue to forge these deep connections within our hearts, our bodies, and our environments. The more we awaken these loving connections, the LESS we will need words, because we begin to resonate with each other on the same plane of understanding. Where words would keep us in ego, we can feel empowered in our bodies and begin to relate togethere in empowered ways. Fear, then, can be dealt with. Without that primal fear trigger, our differing perspectives can then find common ground.
I'm in my 30s. I started forgetting what year I am. Sometimes I tell people my age but I am two years forward, or three years back. I have colorful memories & dreams of people I've never met, and then I go to the office and there they are, introducing themselves to me for the first time in this life. I already have answers for them and we haven't even exchanged names. Yet in my own life I'm working on answers for myself (just as they are). I am not living in linear time, except in the most basic of ways. I feel so, so old, and so, so young all at once. Like a child, I wonder why there must be so much suffering. Then, like an old woman, I see the beauty of how we love each other and learn to love ourselves through the rejecting and embracing one another. I see that suffering should not be denied but in fact it is more like necessary salt bringing out the deeper sweetness of a divine, complex life.
My birthday prayer is, please let this sober awareness of this time anchor me without making me bitter. Let me stay connected to this hope and love for humanity through my next solar return.

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
