Advanced Reiki Training (ART) Technique – Control Panel

www.thereikicafe.com

control panel

I love teaching the Control Panel technique, because it is so easily understood by students of all levels of intuitive development, and because it is so effective. How effective? Try it and share your experience!

As I mention in The Reiki Cafe Reiki III (ART) Manual, this technique is not exclusive to Reiki III students. I teach it to students as early as Level II (Practitioner) if they request it, or if it is a good fit for that class.

Control Panel technique is usually offered in Level III (ART) because Level II concentrates on becoming a practitioner. Level III (ART) is where we hone our skills to be the most effective we can be in helping others and ourselves.

If you are ready to learn the Control Panel technique and want to set up a one-on-one workshop, e-mail me at thereikicafe@gmail.com so we can schedule your in-person or virtual…

“Where did you get this?”  She looked over the backyard, confused that it was daylight when she knew the sun had set. There were lots of tennis balls on the ground beneath the tennis ball tree.  That must be where Peaches got it from.

A tennis ball tree?

Her confused mind bucked at what her eyes were seeing.  There were other differences, too, including a large dog house that wasn’t usually there.

The Dreaming is available now in paperback and eBook formats.

Join author Chris Pavesic in the virtual kitchen with this healthy Couscous Salad recipe and a sneak peek into her new novel, Starter Zone.

 

This recipe is a family favorite. Some like it when I make it with goat cheese while others prefer feta. The choice is yours. (I think both are equally delicious!)

 

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 2 cups plain couscous
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 cup cubed peeled cucumber
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onion (scallion)
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons distilled vinegar (balsamic vinegar works too)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup crumbled goat cheese (or feta cheese)
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts, toasted (or toasted almonds slivered)
  • salt and pepper to taste

 

Materials:

  • Measuring spoon
  • Measuring cup
  • Saucepan
  • Small bowl
  • Large bowl
  • Fork
  • Small skillet 
    1.  Pour pine nuts into skillet and cook on medium heat.  Toast about 2 minutes stirring occasionally to prevent burning.  Set aside to cool.
    2.  In a saucepan, bring the orange juice and water to a boil.  Stir in the couscous, cover; remove from heat and let stand for 5-7 minutes.
    3.  Transfer to a large bowl, and fluff with a fork.
    4.  Add the cranberries, cucumber, parsley, and green onion, mixing well.
    5.  In a small bowl, whisk together the mustard, vinegar, honey, and garlic.
    6.  Pour the dressing over the couscous, mixing well, and stir in the goat cheese and pine nuts, carefully tossing together.
    7.  Add the salt and pepper to taste.  Serve at room temperature or chilled.

    While you are enjoying this healthy salad, please take a moment to enjoy a glimpse into my new novel, Starter Zone, Book One of the Revelation Chronicles.

     

     

    When hydrologists inscribe the consciousness of a human mind onto a single drop of water, a Revelation sweeps the land. The wealthy race to upload their minds into self-contained virtual realities nicknamed Aquariums. In these containers people achieve every hope, dream, and desire. But governments wage war for control of the technology. Terrorist attacks cause massive destruction. The Aquariums fail.  Inscribed human minds leech into the water cycle, wreaking havoc.

     Street gangs rule the cities in the three years since the fall of civilization. Sixteen-year-old Cami and her younger sister Alby struggle to survive. Every drop of untreated water puts their lives in peril. Caught and imprisoned by soldiers who plan to sell them into slavery, Cami will do anything to escape and rescue her sister. Even if it means leaving the real word for a life in the realms, a new game-like reality created by the hydrologists for the chosen few.

     But life in the realms isn’t as simple as it seems. Magic, combat, gear scores, quests, and dungeons are all puzzles to be solved as the sisters navigate their new surroundings. And they encounter more dangerous enemies than any they faced in the real world.

     Time to play the game.

Dana sealed and stored the leftovers and took a last swipe around the kitchen.  And now, she thought, I’m free!

She settled into her favorite reading spot in the living room with the latest J.D. Robb.  She loved Eve Dallas, Roarke, Mavis, Peabody, McNab.  Heck, she loved everything about the series.

Peaches pushed a wet tennis ball into her hand.

Chapter 2

Jenny looked over the offerings on the kitchen counter.  She was only slightly hungry but the vegetarian mushroom stroganoff her mom was working on was delicious enough to tempt her.

She took some of it out on the patio with her math homework, and the dogs, Peaches and Cream.

Jason disappeared into his room to do homework after Jeremy left.
