Today's Muse Mantra Monday takes me back to when I worked with Lauren. We focused on the entire healing package of Soul Portrait Medicine - a healing that starts and ends with a Skype chat for clarity and focus, plus answers to some very key questions for me, like your colour story, your intentions and your healing.
The Skype chat is a beautiful techno addition - what ever did we do without it?!
It all starts with the original Soul Portrait
When it’s time for me to work, I create sacred space: I call upon my Reiki guardians, guides, my angels and animal spirit guides and I begin to sketch, as I do so, I draw Reiki healing symbols into the pencil marks: symbols for emotional healing, healing the past hurts and support in dealing with present issues, all boosted by the Reiki Power Symbol and Master Symbol.
I spend time immersed in the photographs you have sent me. I thoroughly enjoy this process because I can have some quiet time to soak in a sense of who you are and what your soul is telling me.
I just love to follow the lines of your form. There's a point when I just know that I have found an essence and reflection of your divine self and it is then I'll stop and begin to add the colour. This sketching and illustration phase takes me about 2 hours from start to finish.
This is all a very calm and meditative time for me, accompanied by music to support me, candles, incense, drum, cards and my crystal dowser.
I imagine you lying before me on my massage couch, getting the same attention.

The Muse Mantra
Creating your muse mantra takes place after you have seen your Soul Portrait, it gives you time to think of a prayer, poem, phrase, affirmation, quote, goal, lyric. Anything that is going to give a positive anchor - so that when you look at it, either framed, on your desktop, printed off in your journal or pasted into a vision board, you feel your own potential and divine essence. You feel protected and seen. You feel that you're OK, just as you are.
