Reiki Homework… Owls and Dragons

Here is my throwback to last year. This post is the one that got some people angry thinking I wasn’t a Christian and was worshipping animals over Jesus.

Not true at all.

God made all the animals.

I needed comfort and got it from owls and dragons.

God sent me comfort in all sorts of ways. He still does.

“Reiki homework… owls and dragons”

Today I go for my final day of reiki certification. We had two assignments.

One was to do reiki on ourselves every day. Being the overachiever that I am, not only did I do myself, but Kasha the wonder dog too.

The other was to look for our spirit animals. These animals are very important to us on our journey.

They came to me last night.

I wanted to go to my school last night for”Paint Night”. I hadn’t bought tickets, but was going to just show up and make an appearance. I always get a kick out of being at school at night and telling the kids that I truly do live there.

Anyhow, I didn’t go. I ended up with a massive headache, severe nausea, and fear. The whole body kind. The kind where rob came home from work and found me under a blanket crying.

My brother scott texted me psalm 112:8, my nephew Dylan texted me, my kids snuggled me, and rob made a fire.

We decided to watch a movie.

That’s when the spirit animals came to me.

Dragon and owl.

You see, I didn’t realize it until the week was over.

Owl- Next week is spirit week. One day is favorite character day. I love Harry Potter, and his pet owl. Then, when looking back on last year’s plans, I realized yesterday I hadn’t read “Owl Moon” yet. I love that book, and one page in particular.

Then, we watched Pete’s Dragon. There is an owl in the woods in one part.

Then? Facebook kept showing pictures of my school paint night. What did the kids paint?

An owl.

My cousin Jennifer who lives far away was even there. She posted the picture of her daughter and it hit me. An owl.

Dragon- It’s no secret the magic potion dr snuffleuffugus makes me is horrible tasting. I always imagine myself as a dragon breathing out smoke when I let go of my nose and stop gagging. A student in my school gave me a dragon two weeks ago. I stayed home and we watched Petes Dragon. I said to Madison who was snuggled under my blanket that I didn’t realize dragons had fur. She said, “Mom, pete is an English Dragon.” She then told me all about this variety of dragon.

It was an amazing movie. Truly.

Dragons and owls.

I had hoped for dogs, cats, birds, any kind of animal that is seen every day.

But then I realized.

My journey is a long, hard one. It won’t be easy. I don’t need easy animals. I need special ones.

Owls come out in the dark. You don’t often see them, but you hear them and know they are there.

Dragons? You just have to believe. Sometimes you never see what is real.

Kind of like Santa…

and God.

They both fly too, so I know they are carrying my prayers as they soar to the heavens.

Owls and dragons.

I am cured.πŸ’ƒπŸΌπŸ’¨πŸ²πŸ•Š

In Jesus’s name, amen.
