10 Under $20: Holiday Gift Suggestion List 2015 :-)

The
first of
December
brought thoughts
of Christmas magic.
The Day, so soon to arrive.
Our expectations ran high.
Through snow days and blizzards.
Making a list and checking it twice.
Santa’s letter printed and ready to mail.
Christmas baking: heady, wonderful aromas.
Pageants at school, with costumes of many colors.
The tall lush evergreen, centerpiece of the season.
We decorated so carefully; each bough lovingly adorned.
With some old, some new, every one used and none forgotten.
The long days of dark December. Finally, homework complete.
Sitting in the darkened living room; time alone to drift away.
Marvelling at the masterpiece of lights and shining ornaments.
Gazing far beyond to the bliss to follow. Hurry, hurry, hurry!
Christmas eve: midnight mass and carolling.Treats aplenty!
Then the long awaited, special treasures.
The secrets of shining boxes and ribbons.
Finally revealed and always worth the wait.
Off to sleep, to dream of a perfect snowy Christmas Day.
Now content, to still remember these childhood memories.
On
this
November day.

Book Review: The Power of Reiki

reiki

I’ve always been intrigued and interested in Reiki.

I recently had the opportunity to read:

The Power of Reiki by Tanmaya Honervogt

This is THE best Reiki book that I’ve read to date. 

Here’s my review from Amazon.com

As a person who truly believes in holistic healthcare and the power of the mind/body connection for healing, I’ve always been intrigued by Reiki.

Up until now, I haven’t actually had any Reiki treatments or training to do them for other people. But after reading this book, I now feel that I want to take that next step and explore Reiki in much more depth.

The Power of Reiki is a beautiful book. With full color photos throughout (much preferred to diagrams) it explains in detail what Reiki is really all about. A simple but powerful discipline that has been embraced by millions of people around the world and that has also stood the test of time, in terms of its effectiveness.

Topics covered in this book include:

-the history of Reiki

-Reiki in daily life

-Reiki and it’s meaning

-On healing and illness

and many others.

After reading this book, my interest is not only piqued to pursue classes in Reiki, I already feel that I would be capable of doing simple Reiki procedures on myself at this point, and for family members. Something that has never happened before, when I read other books on this topic.

If you’ve been wanting to find out more about Reiki in an interesting and easy to understand way, this is a book you won’t want to miss.

Highly recommended!

PS: Have you or your family tried Reiki? What are your thoughts on this discipline, if you have?

I’d love to hear about your personal experiences! 🙂
