Here's what I learned from adding extra Reiki dates in March:
So many of you are on a spiritual path this year! What I would love to see from all of you (and welcome to the newsletter btw) is remarkable self-care. The common thread between most of us is that:
A) Everyone is a healer on some level; you've chosen the path of the healer. This shows up as caregiving and choosing healing careers with humans and animals.
*Yes, YOU reading this—YOU ARE a healer!
B) Those of us on this path are typically drawn to fix others before we tend to our self-care.
The way to make your life better while making the world a better place is to embark on a path of radical self-care. It will fuel your spiritual path. I know this because I learned it the hard way 10 years ago (another long story of getting sober). My Reiki path helped break this wide open, for me. Your mileage may vary.
I made a quick TikTok about this:
In the video, I referenced an email Dale sent out first thing this year.
Here it is again:
When Things Don't Work Out as a Content Creator (or in life)
Sometimes things don't work out...and that doesn't have to mean a damn thing!
The best thing I've learned about being an online content creator (and in life) is that not everything works out. And this doesn't have to mean a thing.
It doesn't mean you suck.
It doesn't mean your ideas suck.
You don't have to make a story about it. You can just let go and move on. Easier said than done, right?
I've tried a lot of little things that didn't work out for me since I started You Deserve Reiki in 2014 and DestinyArchitecture.com in 2016:
✨ Acuity scheduling—twice
✨ Amazon ads 🙄
Then there were the places I spent time that I thought were important:
🖼️ Making graphics on Canva (to be fair, Unsplash or Pexels wasn't built in yet and I needed something. Yes, iPhone photo quality was meh too).
🗣️ Crafting social media posts for my audience of (back then) less than 100 people. This tied into Canva graphics...so...much...time!
It's a good time to remember that no matter what we endeavor to do, there is no such thing as overnight success. If you can fall in love with the journey or process, you can do anything and be happy doing it.
There Are 3 Reiki Days For April at White Dove Wichita
Chakra-balancing Reiki happens on the final Saturday of each month (except November/December) at White Dove in Wichita! I had a lot of fun offering chakra-balancing Reiki sessions on some extra Saturdays in March, so I think I'll do it again in April!
Sessions are 25 minutes and cost $40. I accept cards, cash, Cashapp, and Bitcoin lightning ⚡️ payments.
Walk-ins are always welcome. White Dove is located at 2947 E. Kellogg (on the frontage road). You can always call us at (316) 262-368 if you want to hold a certain time slot between 11-4. (If you walk in at 4 pm, I'll still take you!)
For April, I'll be at White Dove on April 1, 15, and 29 for Reiki Sessions
The weekend of the 7th is Easter weekend but the weekend of the 22nd John Cappello will be at White Dove!

Curated Content for Content Creators (Who Also Care Deeply About Personal Development)
I was watching an old Red Hot Chili Peppers documentary and, in it, the band members were chatting with Julia Butterfly Hill. She's someone I've always admired and it was cool to see her talk about Luna, life, activism, and culture with the band. It made me look her up and I'm not surprised to see she no longer gives interviews. (Girl, you did your thing and we applaud you! 👏)
The doc is a fantastic watch! It's the 90s, no cell phones, and people look so healthy! Take a look for some nostalgia and creative inspiration. ⬇️
