book cover MASTER black5

The Girl from Bavaria by Petra J Nicoll is a story about a girl who grows up in a village in Bavaria sheltered and protected by a large middle class Catholic family.

At the age of nine, she has a near death experience and at sixteen she finds her mother dead under suspicious circumstances.

A year later, she leaves Bavaria and moves to London, only to discover what really happened during WW2 and that the vein of Nazism flowed within her own family.

Through the extreme pain and sorrow of her exposure to War, Murder, Suicide and Depression at a young age, she begins a journey of profound insight and becomes a “Seeker after Truth”.

After being led to The Master’s of Far East, The Shaman’s of North America and Mexico, she awakens with the realization and visions that she has to lift the veil that surrounds all of humanity and embarks on a journey filled with miracles and eventually transcends all obstacles in her way to reach a higher life.

A Reiki attunement is like a special and very sacred meditation. The purpose of a Reiki attunement is to bring us into a harmonious relationship with the Reiki energy, and to help lift the veils and filters we may be holding between our personality/ego and our higher self.

A Reiki attunement is activated by a Reiki master-teacher, who has been trained in the attunement technique, and who shares the process with a person who has the spiritual desire and intention to awaken their inner healing power.

One of the things that takes place in a Reiki attunement is that our subtle energy system, clears and releases denser energies. Also our chakras and etheric field are strengthened so that we are capable of receiving and transmitting high frequency healing light, at will and for extended periods of time.

With the rapid acceptance of Reiki energy by healers around the world, we find that the strength of the energy is increasing exponentially as more people are attuned, or receiving Reiki treatments and Reiki training.

As the strength of Reiki increases, the power of the attunement to clear and fortify our subtle bodies is intensified as well.

Reiki is easy to learn, with only three levels of training to reach the level of Master. The following list decribes the three levels of Reiki training. Keep these in mind when training or when looking for a Reiki practitioner:
1st degree: Also called Reiki I or Shoden in Japanese. This is entry-level Reiki training where you study Reiki history, learn how to perform self-Reiki, and how to give Reiki to someone else, and are initiated (attuned) for life to the Reiki energy.
2nd degree: Also called Reiki II or Okuden in Japanese. You learn how to use the first three Reiki symbols and how to perform distant Reiki techniques. You receive further attunements to the Reiki energy. After this class, you are considered a Reiki practitioner.
3rd degree: Also called Reiki III or Shinpiden in Japanese. This is the Master Teacher level of Reiki, and the class may be separated into two parts. You receive the Master Reiki attunement and learn the Master Reiki symbol and how to give the Reiki attunements to others

Reiki treatment
You relax, fully clothed, on a couch or seated while the healer holds his hands on or above you. A treatment can last an hour or longer depending on the treatment required. In the western world many practitioners use the standard hand positions and commonly a full treatment is given covering all the important organs of the body.
There is no pressure on the body making it ideal for treating all ages and conditions, sometimes hands are even held away from the body. The energy flows wherever it is required (spiritually guided) and can normally be felt as a warm sensation or tingling in the body. Receiving Reiki is a very relaxing and soothing experience!

Reiki is an effective healing method
Reiki can be used for many ailments like reducing stress, relieving pain, headaches, stomach upsets, back problems, asthma – respiratory problems, PMT, menstrual problems, sinus, anxiety and many more. You can find treatment suggestions for specific problems under the button “How to use Reiki”. (Please observe that Reiki should never be used instead of medical treatment, it should be used as a compliment and a way to become and remain healthy.)

There is no belief system attached to Reiki so anyone can receive a Reiki treatment or a Reiki attunement. As in any healing the first step towards a healthier life is a desire to be healed.

Reiki is easy to learn
Anyone can “learn” Reiki. The word learn is not quite right as most of us cannot just read about Reiki and then do it. The ability to use Reiki is normally given via an attunement or initiation. There are 3 levels of Reiki: Reiki 1 and 2 and the Master level. Once attuned Reiki is easy to use and your ability to use Reiki will never leave you!

Reiki will enrich your life and give you happiness and health on all levels.

What is Emotional Processing

Quantum Physics Demonstrates That Vibrations Create Your Reality. Spiritual awareness and human consciousness is changing rapidly.

Metaphysics opened the door to the new understanding that “we create our reality” and now quantum physics scientifically demonstrates that each person is vibrating out energy and causing the finest particles of creation to take form as the people and experiences we interact with.
All Relationships Are a Mirror of Your Relationship with Yourself

This idea gives new meaning to the concept that all relationships are a mirror of your relationship with yourself. This means that the love, joy and goodness within you will vibrate out and create events and people who bring love, joy and happiness into your life.

Similarly, if there are subtle parts of your self that you have not learned how to love and accept, they might cause you to feel sad, frustrated or self-critical. Then we will meet situations and events that push your buttons and stimulate negative emotion within you.

You will experience unhealthy relationships with your parents, attract work conditions that are challenging, feel abandoned by your loved ones and even create lack of prosperity.
The Child is Feeling, the Adult is Thinking

The root cause of this negative emotion was experienced within us as children, usually between the ages of birth and 7 years of age, when unconditional love and acceptance was withheld by the authority figures around us.

If mother or father were having a bad day and feeling sad, lonely or frustrated then they were emitting negative emotion that would have to impact the vulnerable child.

This is not a judgment upon them but, nevertheless, the child would experience the withholding of love and unconsciously begin to believe that something must be wrong within themselves.

The child is not yet capable of discerning that this is mother’s and father’s issue because the child does not develop the discerning and discriminating mind until around 7 years of age.

All events within the family unit are interpreted through emotions and feelings. If there is negative emotion then the child can only feel that something about them must be unlovable.

Learning and practicing The Golden Light Meditation with the Emotional Clearing techniques will empower you to feel the feelings and transform the negative emotions, thereby having fulfilling relationship in all areas of your life.

An Evening with Lori Rubenstein August 14th, 2015 7-9pm

Posted on Updated on

How do you forgive the past and find the peace you deserve?

Lori S. Rubenstein, JD, CPC spent 18 years as a divorce attorney-mediator and will tell you she quickly ascertained that the court system is not a healthy environment for families. Her passion for helping others led her down the path of relationship and divorce coaching, where she realized Forgiveness was the cornerstone of all her work. As a Forgiveness Teacher, Divorce Coach, Mediator, Author, Regression Therapist and Inspirational Speaker, you will find Lori walks her talk.

Lori’s special gift is helping people to see new perspectives so they can step into a new, more empowering life. Lori has a unique ability to hold the space for healing to occur, and you will find she carries the torch of practicality as well as the spiritual aspects of forgiveness, acceptance and compassion. Her primary mission is to help people heal from the hurts caused by relationships or as Lori calls them, “spiritual partnerships.” Lori’s unique outlook on painful life experiences is enlightening and refreshing. She helps people see that what they call “tragedy” can in fact, be the soul’s greatest gift. 

Lori has been twice divorced and today is happily remarried, her children are grown and she lives a life filled with love and laughter. She is available to speak or lead a retreat in your community or to your group by telephone or webinar.

Lori’s 4-step Living with Forgiveness Process and her 30 years experience as a divorce attorney, mediator, coach and forgiveness teacher can put you solidly on the path to finding peace in YOUR life. Forgiveness helps clear the way and removes blocks that come with holding onto anger, hurt, frustration, guilt, and disappointment. Personal coaching helps you become the person you want to be, so you live your life in alignment in YOUR life purpose, not anyone else’s.

Wholeness in relationship starts with a self that is whole and healthy. As a coach, I have tools to help you heal those broken pieces and take down the walls that you’ve put up to protect yourself.

If you are not in a relationship and want to be in one: The first step is self love and healing. The second step is to find clarity about what you want in a relationship. The final step, once you find that person, is to learn how to be in relationship, how to accept the other person, (flaws and all) how to not ‘lose yourself’ in the relationship, how to communicate and how to not have unrealistic expectations.

I assume you have had relationships before. AND, you might consider some of them less than successful. The most important thing to remember about past relationships is how to turn what you consider a “mistake” into an important life lesson. Then, there are no mistakes.

As a divorce attorney, I’ve seen thousands of clients move on and find true love, and happiness, again. I want that for you too! I’ve created a class to teach you everything YOU need to know about stepping into a new loving, healthy relationship. It’s really the BEST of everything I teach
