What can Reiki do for you? Reiki is a traditional Japanese energy technique that promotes healing, but we can go a little deeper than that:
First of all, Reiki causes no harm and requires consent. It doesn't deplete me to channel it to you. It also won't come to you if you don't allow it. Here are a few of Reiki's benefits:
- Physical: Reduced pain, improved sleep, lowered blood pressure
- Emotional: Reduced anxiety, increased relaxation, improved mood
- Mental: Improved focus, reduced stress, increased clarity
- Spiritual: Increased sense of connection, inner peace, deeper self-awareness
Reiki works on your energy body and beyond. It balances your chakras and helps you relax. Energy work like Reiki is the perfect complement to the spiritual path because it reveals what's going on in your energy body, esoteric body, emotional body, physical body—and so on.
Our issues are in our tissues. So what we focus on expands. But sometimes, we can focus on things that manifest as a sore knee, a headache, or a nagging sense that there's something more out there for us...
Reiki picks up on these clues for me during sessions, as you may know. Sometimes a Reiki session is a nap. Other times, it can turn into a coaching session if you're going through a tough time and trying to wrangle a problem while resisting...
Sometimes, you're going gangbusters on your healing journey, and all is well! Reiki is great for a tune-up there, too.
Don't worry—Reiki always knows what to do. And the act of (and commitment to) not worrying is part of practicing Reiki, as it's one of the 5 Reiki Precepts.
There Are 3 Reiki Days in May
Chakra-balancing Reiki happens on the final Saturday of each month—with a few extra dates mixed in as I’m able—at White Dove in Wichita.
Those extra Saturdays this month will be May 6, 20, and 27.
Sessions last 25 minutes and cost $40. I accept cash, card, CashApp, and Bitcoin lightning ⚡️ payments.
Walk-ins are always welcome.
You can also pay ahead online and save your spot in the Destiny Architecture online store. There's a place to pay and a link to save your time slot in my booking calendar.
Long story short, I built it this way so that you'll get discounts when you join the membership at DestinyArchitecture.net.
Please support White Dove by taking this class from Courtney and/or coming in for Reiki before/after 👇

Announcing a ✨ New✨ Monthly New Moon 🌚 Meditation Group!
I'm announcing something ✨ new 🌚 for May!
Starting this month, subscribers will be invited to a monthly group meditation held on (or as close as possible to) each month's New Moon. For May, this will be Thursday, May 18 from 7:30-8:30 PM via Zoom.
We'll spend 20 minutes meditating as a group with time for a Q&A to answer your meditation questions.
The new moon is a wonderful, perfect time to set intentions. So we'll do a brief manifesting exercise complete with a free digital download for you to keep. We'll talk about goal-setting and making vision boards.
1:1 Life Coaching Sessions
I've made coaching sessions available again in the Destiny Architecture store. You'll get a 10% off discount if you join the membership. (Also good on Reiki sessions, downloads, and more—courses coming soon).
*Just a housekeeping note: The store is at DestinyArchitecture.com and I run the membership on DestinyArchitecture.net. Once you sign up as a member, you will have access to the guided meditations hosted on the .net site. You'll receive an email within 24 hours after that containing your 10% off codes.

The Latest Meditation for Subscribers:
This week's guided meditation is a little bit different. It will help you with anxiety, but I also offer some teaching up front for the first 13:39 minutes of the podcast.
(I also broke this up into separate audio files so you can listen to only the meditation—your choice).

Curated Content for Content Creators (Who Also Care Deeply About Personal Development)
Freelance writers, beware: ChatGPT may (or may not be) coming for your job, via Forbes.
I'm a big fan of Josh Brill's music for yoga, Reiki, and meditation. He's got a cool YouTube channel about music mindfulness you can enjoy.
It's good work if you can get it!
Creators on TikTok are getting paid up to $34K to make ads for big brands. I think I'm a tad too honest to get this kind of work. 😉
I did this in radio to make ends meet because the pay was so low, my audience (now called a "following") was built-in, and I had a professional studio at my disposal. In short, it was easy money. This was ~20 years ago and I'd make probably $120 for a 1-minute commercial for a new long-stay Max Factor lipstick. 💄 Ok, I'm dating myself now...
The point is, if you work to create a positive image with a loyal & engaged audience + you create sticky short-form video content = you may be a good candidate to make ads. That's just my opinion, as someone with little desire to work with "big" brands.
However, I'd put my rotten cats out there for a cat food deal! 🤣 Pet rent sucks! 😂
