Happy New Year

To our Reiki family and Faery friends,

Thank you for supporting our diabolical plan to take over the world with Love. Your revolutionary compassion makes all the difference. Each little smile, every eye-to-eye nod of connection, all your affirmations of goodness and acts of kindness, they radiate a naturally delicious field of influence that overrides the artificial flavoring of modern mainstream media reality.

As you know, Love is the ultimate super power, and this year Team Fabulous has seen record success. Through your painstaking dedication to loving yourself, seeing beauty in the ordinary and sharing the abundance of your ever opening hearts, you have pushed the envelope of favorable interaction. Smoochy has confirmed that the planetary love vibration is rising faster than the national debt, so thank you again for your charismatic efforts. World domination is so much funner with you!

Happy New Year from Circle Green Healing Arts!

We love you...

We love you…

 Smoochy’s Favorite Color

When Smoochy goes people watching, which for him is very much like bird watching or treasure hunting is for humans, he beholds his landscape, seeking that which sparkles most beautifully. Watching the world is like a concert of color for those who look with their heart… and Smoochy finds it thrilling to see all the different ways in which love shines. Here are a few favorite colors from Smoochy’s rainbow.

  • Angel White, that golden white glow seen through closed eyes when within the presence of the Angelic Realms.
  • Ultra Violet, the quasi-invisible brilliance that glows around living things, especially flowers, mountains and happy people.
  • Darkness aka Black, the complete absence of visual stimulus, the dark is restful for tired eyes and emotions. Smoochy welcomes the rejuvenating abyss of silent color.
  • Pink, soft, sweet and squishy to roaring outrageous magenta, pink is a power onto its own.
  • Opalescence is a dance of color both distinct and inseparable, a kaleidoscope of riotous mosaic harmony like the aurora borealis.
  • Shiny – although shiny is not a color, it is the one Smoochy likes best.

 

Reiki Refresher Courses

An Invocation of the Goddess

Blessed are the lovers of the great green earth and the white moon among the stars. Lo, I am the mystery of the waters and it is my hand that changes the tides and seasons. It is the sweetness of my body that lingers on the tongue like ripe fruits on the vine. I call upon your soul to arise now and come unto me, for I am the song of nature that gives life to the universe.

Exult my spirit with joyfulness so that my blessings may pour forth from bliss. Sing, feast, dance, make music, mirth and love, all in my presence, for mine is the timeless ecstasy of the being and mine also is the tangible paradise of earthly form. Let my worship be in the innocent delights of the heart, for behold
~ all acts of love and pleasure are my rituals.

Let there be beauty and strength, power and compassion, honor and humility with my invocation. And you who seek to know me, know that your seeking and yearning will avail you not, unless you know the mystery. I have been with you from the beginning, and I am that which is found at the end of desire.

Arranged by Smoochy the Frog -
Inspired by Doreen Valiente’s Charge of the Goddess

Not just a capricious, hedonistic daydream – the Goddess Party is real

The Goddess Party
I wasn’t just another vision-of-paradise fantasy drifting through my head. The Goddess Party is real…and the first one is this Saturday!
It happened not long ago, while daydreaming with an optimistic mystical friend, she and I dreamed of the perfect Goddess Party. We would spend the whole day relaxing in the company of goddesses, walking in nature, bedecked with leafy garlands on our heads, sipping green smoothies and laughing.
There would be soft places to sit, warmth from the sun, protection from the rain and easy smiles on our faces. There would be an altar adorned with crystals and stones and flowers dedicated to the wisdom of the indwelling spirit of the divine.
We wanted fresh aromatic concoctions for body and soul. Sugar scrubs for the skin, exotic essential oil perfume to enhance our feminine essence, magical mud baths, steamy herbal saunas and handsome men to come and rub our bodies with organic chocolate coconut oil, rose petals on our nipples and someone else to make dinner.
You are the reason it’s real. I thought the idea of a goddess party was a capricious hedonistic daydream, until said out loud to the likes of yew. My goddess girlfriends didn’t say no, they asked me WHEN.
NOW, is the answer, and on and on and on – starting this Saturday.
Goddess Party at the Home Tree School of Natural Healing in Snohomish – Noon to 9:30pm, Saturday, June 13th 2013
Call or text Shannon at 425-422-1641 to register

Totem Feather Class and the Gift of the Bird Nation

Lives begin to change at the same moment the decision is made to take a step forward and learn something new. As a Reiki master teacher at Circle Green Healing Arts, I have seen just how swiftly the energy can shift for a person when they sign up for a class that really calls to them.

In the days surrounding my attendance at Richard Welch’s Totem Feather class, the airy presence of bird totem was profound, even for a miracle junkie like me. Large turkey-buzzards seamed to perpetually dot the skies on the two day trip to eastern Washington that I took just before the class. The dark auspicious birds were seen landing in a nearby field, soaring high aloft in pairs and moving west in and unorganized assembly along the ridge line of the overlooking hills.

Mr. Rufus Humming Bird, Eagle, Hawk and Song Bird also made their presence known, yet the overriding message was definitely from Buzzard. The powerful presence of this transformational totem went to great lengths to draw my attention. On my last stop out of town, a dark-haired deputy sheriff smiled and opened the door of the convenience store for me. His name, are you ready? The one who opened the way for me on my journey home was none other than Officer Ottis Buzzard – no kidding.

The day of the class was a hoot too (owl humor). Richard showed us all about the use of sage and sweet grass as an energetic cleansing tool before beginning shamanic and spiritual work. Then we learned the best practices for cleaning, clearing and caring for our feathers. Everyone was invited to select a personal feather from Richard’s collection and make their own feather bundle. When we were done crafting, Richard demonstrated how to use our feathered fan for healing.

That evening, after the Totem Feather class I went to a little gathering and playfully soothed the auras of my friends with the airy strokes of my smudging feather fan. It’s made of turkey and pheasant with tufts of fox and wolf with a fringe of white doe skin at the bottom of the quill. As we snacked and made music with percussion and string, our hostess offered up a wishbone to pull. With one lucky snap, I was awarded the honor of asking the universe for anything that I wanted. My wish was for our success! I want us to light up and shine to our utmost shiniest delight!

Taking part in Richard’s Feather Totem Class helped me realize the deeper spiritual strength of our fine feathered friends. The Spirit of Air was dropping heavy hints about how to float with the phases of change. Buzzard, who honors death and makes use of the loss, was encouraging my inner transformation. Mr. Rufus Hummingbird and the others wanted to let me know that they are always with me, loving me. And my human friends, they fed me, cheered me with music and then, with the wishbone of a chicken, offered up the magical means to wish for anything my heart desired.

All of these things wove together around me and I felt very blessed, as though the wish I made earlier was already working. Yet the Bird Nation is so sweet and so generous, it arranged for a final message to be delivered that evening, one that would remind me that dreams can be reborn, especially among supportive friends.

The hour was late and the morning early, so the time came to pack up the instruments for the night. I had been playing my girlfriend’s little wooden maraca in our song circle for fun. She said she liked the way I shook it and asked me to keep it as a gift. In that moment, whether she knows it or not, my friend became the secret emissary of the Bird Nation. I gratefully accepted the spontaneous gift of friendship. It was so perfect I could feel my head begin to spin. The beautiful hand-painted rattle is carved into the shape of an egg. How crazy good it that! Oh, praise be to those with wings and to those who love them.

The October Green Reiki Circle, originally falling on Halloween has been postponed to the next evening for the Day of the Dead Green Reiki Circle. The theme for November’s first Reiki Circle is Reiki a dedication of love and healing to our loved ones who have gone ahead on the path.  

The evening’s program begins with meeting and greeting, a potluck snack table with a serving plate for the ancestors, then partners up for a Reiki chair treatment exchange and finally settles down into a candle lit circle where we will send Reiki healing with our love and light to the timeless forms of all our loved ones, both seen and unseen.

Contemplation of the transcendence of spirit may hold a deep fascination for you considering….there is still no cure for the common birthday.
