Thoughts about "The Becoming Process," a transformational model for full-tilt life developed by Kanta Bosniak, author of Surviving Cancer and Other Tough Stuff: An Illustrated Journal for Healthy and Abundant Life and Becoming Who You Really Are

Energy, Recovery & a Slender Blonde

- Mikao Usui

I give thanks for my many blessings
Just for today I will not anger
Just for today I will not worry
I will do my work honestly
I will be kind to people
and every living thing.

One Day at a time
-Recovery slogan

Yesterday, under strict orders my dear friend (and Massage therapist extraordinaire) Hakuin Rose, I planned to schedule a treatment in preparation for a book tour weekend. Hakuin lives in Virginia, so I needed to see someone up here, where I now live, in Pennsylvania.

Two days, many miles, cities to go in and out of, people to meet, presentations. “Make sure you do it before you go and after you come back” she told me. A slim woman of slight build and average height, she packs a walloping lot of energy. Strong as an ox and stunningly beautiful of face and presence. Who’s going to argue?

I called Jared, my chiropractor, and made the first appointment, with his new massage therapist. “I need to make desposits in my energy bank,” I said.

“You got it.”

And I did. Anna, new to me and fresh out of massage school on an externship, said, “Jared told me you want some energy.”

“Oh, well, yes. I’d love it. When I said that I was thinking of massage as “energy,” but if you do Reiki, great.”

“I don’t do Reiki. But I do energy work.”

Oh, I thought. Interesting. Just the day before I had a client in the big leather chair who was such a natural healer that I gave her an unofficial and no-charge attunement. Not worrying whether to call it Reiki, Seichim, Reconnective Healing…it’s all good, and it all comes from Source, regardless what channel (re)claims it and (re)names it. And this was a client who was in a position to benefit others every day.

We are all energy conduits. We send universal energy constantly. As it comes through us, through the filter of our minds, depending on where we are in our learning arc, that energy will will in clear and come out altered to whatever degree we’re in alignment with who we really are. And everyone around us will feel it. Whether they do so consciously or not.

If we’re young in our Becoming process, still in Victim/Perpetrator/Rescuer consciousness, it will be distorted. Farther along, less so. The more we have become ourselves, the less we alter or influence the energy that comes through us.

What I like about the Usui prayer is that it invites us, like the slogans and prayers of Recovery, to step aside from who we aren’t, one day at a time. And this spiritual mindfullness practice speeds up the process, because we begin consciously inviting Source Energy to align our thinking. And so, it does!

Anna’s hands were hot. I could feel the energy. I thanked her and I made an appointment for another massage for after I return from my book trip.

Just for today, may you cherish the energy that come through you, inviting alnd allowing it to serve you and others. May you attract good friends who give wise counsel…and a really good energy-channeling massage therapist!
