Mom trying to give me a Silver Lining

I woke up this morning with tears running down on my face.

This is one Friday morning, and I don't have any plan today, so I decided to sleep in.

Then dream started.

It was somewhat related what had happen few days ago in my Reiki practice. A male
came to receive my session, but he had very much inappropriate attitude,
and I had to decline his request to make another appointment.

This never happened to me, and it didn't feel good. But I was relieved that 
he wouldn't come here again. I thought I moved on, but I guess my mind was stuck.

Anyways, the dream was somewhat related to this incident, and 
I was very hurt in my dream.

In my dream, I cried and cried in my room up stairs in my old house 
where I used to live with my mom.

I finally went down the stairs, still crying, and looked for my mom
so I could talk to her.
 (By the way, my mom had passed away 17 years ago. I knew in 
my dream that I wouldn't find her, but I looked for her.)

Here she was standing in a kitchen, chatting with one of my cousin who is
like my big brother sometime, and they both found me crying.

I simply walked up to her and she simply gave me a big hug. We didn't say
anything, but I was so comfortable and safe in her arms. 

It was warm, safe, and felt like everything was OK. The sad crying turned
into a joy crying to meet my mom again.

As much as I really didn't like the experience with the inappropriate customer,
I got to meet my mom in my dream. 

It was a dream, but it was so real.  I miss you, mama.

Sliver Lining.

Teacher who walks his talk

This is a little thank you note to my Reiki teacher, Yamaguchi sensei.

With Yamaguchi sensei in my Reiki Room in Chilliwack, BC, Canada

 I learned Jikiden Reiki with Yamaguchi sensei in 2006 for the first time. 

Jikiden Reiki was my first connection with him, but I have been learning so much more than just Reiki, but about "life" since I met him.  As I don't have parents to ask any advice, he became to be one of my important mentor for my life.

I feel honour to spend more time with him, and have more opportunity to know about him as a person, not only as my Reiki teacher, since I have started to be his translator in 2008, and organize the annual Jikiden Reiki Vancouver
seminar to invite people from all over in North America. 

I can say with my heart, he is such a casual person who has a great sense of humour but serious at the same time, down to earth and very spiritual, gentle but strict, very very caring, honest but easy going. 

I love the way he is because has no egoistic nor arrogant attitude which often happens in a teaching community. He is a person who deeply care about other people with respect and he has a deep honesty to unseen spirit world. 

Also, of course, he has deep dedication and integrity to Reiki. 

Anyways, this is what happened to my oldest son. 
His nose was starting to stuffed up, so his ears couldn't pop
when we were coming down from the ski hill.

By the time when we arrived to the town to have a dinner, my son's ear 
was hurting so bad, and he was feeling sick.

Yamaguchi sensei happened to sit beside him, and gently talked to him,

"Is your ear hurting?"

As he talked, his hand was already looking for a spot to place his hand 
on my son's head.

Yamaguchi sensei gives Reiki for my son's ear ache.

I already ordered his favourite beer. Usually, when beer comes to the table,
Yamaguchi sensei starts enjoying his drink, but it wasn't the case this time.

As my son sat upright, Yamaguchi sensei continues to
place his hand on my son's head.

Yamaguchi sensei continues to place his hand on my son's head, 
and eventually my son start to feel a bit better and was able to enjoy 
the last few bites of Sushi and some miso soup. 

Yamaguchi sensei is definitely a teacher who walks his talk.
I am so grateful to learn with him....
