🌟 Reiki This Weekend + New Moon 🌚 Meditation Countdown⚡️ The Destiny Architecture Blueprint 5/15/23

Imagine what you can heal with regular Reiki sessions this summer. What would happen if you got a Reiki session every other week? What would you call on Reiki to do with you? Through you? Imagine the benefits of regular self-care on your energy field!

I'll see you this weekend at White Dove on Saturday from 11-4. If Reiki is how you want to spend your summer vacation, I've got a deal for you...

Announcing: The NEW Reiki Summer Pass

Imagine what you can heal with regular Reiki sessions this summer. What would happen if you got a Reiki session every other week? What would you call on Reiki to do with you? Through you? Imagine the benefits of regular self-care on your energy field!

Reiki helps you by grounding you, balancing your chakras, and filling your body with Source Energy. Reiki promotes relaxation.

Reiki is for the healing journey you're on, no matter where you are in that journey. Reiki will find you where you're at. Reiki is seeking you.

I will stop selling the Reiki Summer Pass by July 15; I put this on sale early, so whenever you purchase it, your six sessions begin! (You can also use them as Distance Reiki sessions).

I'll See You This Weekend for Reiki at White Dove (& Next Weekend, Too!)

Chakra-balancing Reiki happens on the final Saturday of each month—with a few extra dates mixed in as I can—at White Dove in Wichita! So there are two more Reiki Saturdays this month:

• This Saturday, May 20

• Next Saturday, the Final Saturday (my usual date), May 27

Walk-ins are always welcome. White Dove is located at 2947 E. Kellogg (on the frontage road). You can always call us at (316) 262-3683 or email me directly to hold your spot at destinyarchitecture@gmail.com.

Sessions last 25 minutes and cost $40. I accept cash, card, CashApp, and Bitcoin lightning ⚡️ payments.

I've got a spot for you at this Thursday night's New Moon Meditation! 🌚

ICYMI, I'm starting an online monthly meditation group to be held during the New Moon as this is an auspicious time for manifesting. It will be on Zoom so you can attend from wherever you are in the world. 🌎

I'll be holding these as close to the moment the moon is new as possible, which means times are going to fluctuate...along with the moon. 🌚

This Thursday night's meditation will be held at 7:30 PM Central.

Next month, the new moon 🌚 falls on a Saturday afternoon. You do have to join the membership at DestinyArchitecture.net to be a part of it! (It's packed with value at just $4.99/month, but on sale at half off right now).

The format will be a 20-minute meditation together as a group, which I'll lead. You'll get to concentrate on setting an intention during the energy of the new moon. Then, we'll get into some manifesting exercises together.

This month, you'll get a worksheet in Google Workspace you can copy and use on your own for your manifesting exercises—which I hope will become a habit!

I used to hate manifesting crapola and "prosperity gospel." It had become gimickly over the years, thanks to things like "The Secret" and other mass-appeal types of things...that most probably didn't see results from and likely didn't stick with.

My goal is to make things bite-size and easy to stick with as a coach, meditation teacher, and Reiki Master. I know these practices make a difference when used correctly. You won't be brow-beaten here to "think positive or else!"

Here at Destiny Architecture, we go with what works. My energy as a Reiki Master & coach on a healing path has always been this:

You get what you need and not what you want.

What you need on the path will reveal itself to you through your spiritual practices.  You won't be farting sunshine and rainbows. But, if you do your work, you will reap the benefits! And yes, sometimes you get what you need before you get what you want.

I'm confident it's time to bring meditation + manifestation to you during the New Moon 🌚 each month so that you can go deeper down your path. That's why I've made the membership half-off this month. 👇

Once Upon A Meditation...

I have two bengal cats who I love dearly. They do, however, tend to be my teachers in many ways. Usually, it's Titali who LOVES meditation—but not this weekend. It was Usul who decided he'd be MY meditation teacher AND join me for once IN meditation.

That's Usul on the left with his eyes closed and Titali on the right with the green eyes and resting b*tch face (RBF), which is her natural state. It's difficult to get a photo of them together and behaving. This photo is therefore quite rare!

I can't tell you how many times I've meditated to find that, by the end, Titali has somehow found her way to me, or close to me. She loves the sound of the singing bowl. They BOTH come running for yoga nidra!

But Usul on his own has never been into practices that induce CALM. He wants to run around in circles, howling with a ball in his mouth. If he's awake, he brings me his ball to throw.

Yesterday, it was raining and I decided that it was an opportunity to sit down and meditate to the sounds of natural rain. (I like to meditate to recorded rain sounds, so I saw this as a treat). I rolled out my yoga mat and sat on my meditation cushion. Then I noticed Usul circling me (no ball this time).

So I spread a blanket across my legs and invited him to come chill. Let me reiterate: Usul has zero chill. But this time, he decided to take me up on my offer and quickly laid his little butt down on the blanket, pensively at first.

After a few minutes, he settled. I settled.

Did he settle because I did? Did I settle because he did? Or do all beings need a couple of minutes in order to settle down into the peaceful place of meditation? I suspect all of the above are true and correct.

Here's the lesson: give yourself time to settle at the start of your meditation practice.

I've taken to talking for a couple of minutes at the beginning of the guided meditations now in order to give you the time you need to find a comfortable seat, block out distractions, and settle.

Those first few minutes of meditation can be challenging. The fight against the mind's fluctuations is beginning. The to-do list items pop in. The racing thoughts. The intrustive thoughts. And the classic favorites also come sneaking in, like, "Did I turn off the oven?" Or, "What is that weird noise?"

Just work with these thoughts. Allow them to pass. If Usul can settle, so can I. So can you.

Going, Going, GONE!

These items are leaving the Destiny Architecture store soon, so get 'em before they're gone at a deep discount.

The Latest Meditation for Subscribers:

There's far more to Reiki than meets the eye. For Reiki practitioners, meditation is as big a part of the practice as self-healing and the 5 Precepts. I love this simplistic meditation that focuses on the Hara, so I simplified it and now I'm sharing it with you.

A Guided Reiki Meditation to Promote Healing
We’ll focus on your hara, which is sometimes called the tanden or Dan Tien. In Japanese, the hara is your soft belly. It’s considered to be the energy center in Reiki.
