Daydree Reiki - Courtney Collins Illustration

Just a few more hours, that’s not so bad. My stomach was bobbing and weaving like a boxer soon defeated. I wished the motion sickness would end. Are we there yet? Oh, my head.

We were on our way to the Grand Canyon. I’d never been before and my two friends invited me for my first visit on a road trip from Southern California. We were on those dreaded switchback roads in an old Toyota. I tried staring out the window at clouds and mountains. That’s what they say to do, right? It didn’t work. I was fresh out of ideas and succumbed to my fate. Torture.

Finally, one of my compadres suggested a rest stop. Hurray! We stopped moving but my symptoms were so bad, they persisted.

Sooner than I would like, we were on the road again.

Once my friends realized that I wasn’t getting any better, one of them moved to the back seat and suggested sharing Reiki with me.

I had no idea what she was talking about but I trusted her.

She laid her hands across my head, and then my solar plexus for at least ten minutes each. It was such an interesting feeling. I had done similar things to myself but the result was different. When she did it, I had a sense of calm. My head and solar plexus felt warm and over time the motion sickness symptoms subsided.

What happened?

*Reiki is Universal Energy. We all share it. When a practitioner lays their hands above or on top of our energy centers (chakras) their energy connects with ours and guides us towards more inner balance thereby creating healing.

“Everything is energy and that is all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.” - Albert Einstein

Because of my friend’s Reiki I was able to match the frequency of the reality I wanted which was peace and balance in my belly and head. Physics.This was my first introduction to Reiki which led me on the journey of becoming a Reiki Master and Teacher.

* Reiki benefits conditions caused by anxiety and aids in stress management for our day-to-day lives. Also, Reiki can relieve emotional and physical pain. Learn more about Reiki.

Single & married to work. You’re a boss. That is to be commended. But what you want most, you don’t have. Your plus one. Your person.

How did you get here?

There are a myriad of reasons this happens. But what matters most now is: How do you get to where you want to be? Obviously, your career and money making skills are stellar. So, could you translate those skills into a transformational love experience?

You see, if you’re a ‘high achiever/married to your work’ type, you might believe that if you’ve worked this hard to make money the relationship part should come fairly easy. But that isn’t always the way. Being successful with your career is similar, yet different to being successful in love. Your diligence and attention to detail that got you where you are today will be great when navigating dating apps for example. But you’ll also need some relaxation and reflection in order to become a love magnet and attract the best match for you.

Obviously, there are many different types of romantic relationships including polyamorous, situationships, etc. But for the purpose of this particular blog, I’m referring to those seeking monogamous love relationships.

We tend to attract who we are. That could be your best self, your wounded self or a combo plate of the two. Also, we can sometimes attract folks that crave our inner light but we don’t necessarily need them. Cheesy Casseroles of Dating, I like to call them. They may be delicious in the moment but ultimately not the best for wellness, if you feel me. That said, in order to become a strong and healthy love magnet, you must get real and ask yourself difficult questions. That requires shutting out the noise of the outside world. Relax. Go within. Do you want a relationship that truly nourishes you or are you down for a lifetime of cheesy casseroles?

Check out our newsletter for 3 tips that will help you become that fabulous, high achieving, love magnet.

Take care of yourself and each other.

When we think of our favorite songs, the harmonies are impeccable. The melodies are catchy. We can’t get enough. Relationships are similar in form. Great harmony is required in order to make our relationships sing.

But how do couples maintain harmony and peace these days when fear, anxiety and stress have the potential to manifest as apathy, disconnection or short tempers between us?

First, let’s begin with what we mean by harmony. When individual sounds are joined together to create a whole unit, harmony is achieved. In a relationship, when someone hits the wrong chord the harmony goes off. There is no peace. Sometimes it’s just a small moment, one note. But if we are stressed, this moment can create discord.

However, we all have different types of relationships with our partners, so the sense of harmony and peace varies from couple to couple.

The ultimate goal is to understand your personal harmony within your relationship because there are no rules for a successful song. From Stravinsky to Frank Zappa, they broke the rules of harmony, yet still created beautiful music.

That said, what’s your harmony as a couple?
