Mantras & Symbols - How They Have Affected My Life 
From International Reiki website - www.IHReiki.com 
Written by Helene Williams 
 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The first word that comes to mind for me in how the mantras and symbols have changed my life is balance.  The dictionary defines balance as "the state of having your weight spread equally so that you do not fall".  When taken literally of course, this would mean to fall over in a physical sense.  However, translated a bit differently, it may mean falling emotionally, spiritually, or mentally.  That of course, is how much of my life was before Shinpiden.  Although I had been practicing Reiki for many years, my focus was always on doing Reiki for others, and I found myself often feeling over-extended and stressed.

After taking the Shinpiden class, it was quite a transition for me to use the mantras and symbols in such a different and insightful way.  In the Western Reiki classes, I had learned that the symbols must be activated and changed the effect of the energy.  CKR was used to increase the power of Reiki and one needed to draw it over and over again prior to a treatment.  SHK was used for emotional and mental healing for others.  HSZSN was used to send Reiki to others over a distance (and even was recommended as a tool for exorcisms), and DKM for attunement purposes.  These all seemed like very magical concepts and although I used them diligently, I always had difficulty with comprehending how they worked. When I learned that the symbols were for me as a focus for my intention and had no magical powers on their own, things became so much clearer.  It suddenly all made sense.  What I love about this system is it's simplicity.

The I Practice Self Reiki Every Day Badge of Honor 
by Pamela Miles
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

When I learned to practice self Reiki in 1986, I had been a student of meditation and yoga for 25 years. 
 
I understood that, like meditation and yoga, Reiki is a spiritual practice. I knew if I wanted to be happy, to heal and to grow, I needed to practice self Reiki every day. 
 
So that's what I did. And practicing self Reiki every day has made all the difference.
 
 Do you practice self Reiki every day? 
 
If you practice self Reiki every day, you too know the difference it has made in your health and well-being, in how you feel about yourself and your life, your sense of meaning, and the quality of your relationships. 
 
And when life got tough, you know how your daily practice sustained you. 
 
Knowing how profoundly your daily self Reiki has supported you, you want others to know Reiki practice can help them too.

Bald eagle nest cam 24/7
Follow a pair of wild bald eagles all day, all night, 
thanks to the eagle nest cam from Georgia's Berry College.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Berry College in northwest Georgia is live-streaming video of this bald eagle nest on campus. The 24/7 view offers a unique window into the daily lives of two adult bald eagles, which have been nesting near the school's athletic and recreation center. One egg appeared on January 14 and another came two days later. And according to yesterday's Atlanta Journal-Constitution, one of the eggs hatched on February 26! Stay tuned.
