I’m Back!!!!


Hey y’all! Well, I know I completely disappeared for a VERY long time. But I’m coming back full force starting February 1st, 2018! I am taking the remainder of the month of January to get situated and plan how I want this blog to be. I don’t just want to dive in head first like last time and get lost again. I need this as much as some of y’all do!

My entire life got twisted & turned upside down in 2017 so, I should have quite a bit of interesting material coming out…¬† Some of which will include how we once again moved back across the country to Tennessee, I had another baby boy (born Christmas Morning 2017), and the worst of the worst- my husband got sent to prison…

So, join me on February 1st for the re-birth of The Mindful Mama!

Namaste Y’all ‚̧

~Growing Up~


My baby boy is officially growing up! It’s a bitter-sweet adventure for sure. It really makes you realize how precious this time is. We have to cherish every moment of these days. These are the memories that we are creating for a lifetime.

He turns 1 on Sunday & it feels like he was just born yesterday. It seems like the more babies I have, the quicker they grow-up.

He stubborn as a mule, loving, kind, funny, intelligent, can say 11 different words, walks, loves to share,¬†loves playing¬†with his cousins & is a Mama & Daddy’s boy!!! He has such a huge personality for such a little person and I will always cherish being privileged enough to watch him grow.

Namast√© Y’all!!!

The Benefits of Reiki


Reiki_Benefits_wChakra_SymbolsThere are so many amazing benefits of Reiki & it is excellent for healing any physical, mental, emotional and spiritual issues of any kind and it gives wonderful results.

The most important thing to know about Reiki is that, it bring balance into your body and energy system, this is how it heals. Reiki can provide very profound¬†healing effects.¬†Though, Reiki does not promise a miraculous healing, it can’t undo years of stress, negativity &/or disease in just a few sessions. Reiki works directly at the source of your problem. It doesn’t just mask your symptoms. But, with the will to be healed &¬†proper lifestyle changes Reiki is a great tool to bring your mental, physical, emotional & spiritual state into balance & at your maximum level of health.

When the flow of the “Life Force Energy” is disrupted, weakened or blocked, emotional or health problems tend to occur. Imbalances can be caused from many situations occurring in our lives, such as: emotional or physical trauma, injury, negative thoughts and feelings, including fear, worry, doubt, anger, anxiety, negative self-talk, toxicity, nutritional depletion, destructive lifestyle and relationships, neglect of self and lack of love for oneself or others, from emotions that are not expressed in a healthy way, etc.

SOME of the benefits of Reiki are:

  • Deep Relaxation
  • Relieves Tension & Stress
  • Reduces Pain
  • Heals Mental & Emotional Traumas
  • Reduces Blood Pressure
  • Removes energy blockages, adjusts the energy flow of the endocrine system bringing the body into balance and harmony
  • Assists the body in the removal of toxins
  • Supports your immune system
  • Reduces some of the side effects of drugs and helps the body to recover from drug therapy after surgery and chemotherapy
  • Helps spiritual growth and emotional clearing
  • Increases vitality and postpones the aging process
  • Raises the vibrational frequency of the body
  • Clears the mind and improves focus
  • Helps you sleep better
  • Promotes creativity

SOME of the conditions Reiki can help heal are:

  • Migraines/Headaches
  • Back pain
  • Depression & Anxiety
  • Arthritis
  • Skin Conditions (eczema, psoriasis, rashes, etc.)
  • Infections
  • Flu/Colds
  • Ulcers
  • Bone problems

In other words, Reiki can help you heal from ANY emotional, mental, physical or spiritual issue!

Reiki promotes Spiritual Healing, which brings with it a greater sense of participation and empowerment, purpose and meaning, and a broader perspective, with a strong sense of well-being and not just an absence of disease.

In other words, spiritual health has a direct positive impact on mental, emotional and physical health. What spiritual health means to you is completely up to you.

Reiki simply promotes the mind/body state that supports your wholeness and wellbeing, gently balancing and harmonizing you in a holistic and individualistic way.

Long term practice of whole-body Reiki will restore the general condition of the body. It will open & balance the energy channels and this will allow the body to properly handle stress, release toxins & cope with anxiety & depression.

When a person is in good health, regular therapy will increase the bodies built-in defense system. This will manifest itself as confidence and outward harmony in dealing with everyday events. The person will gain a positive outlook on life.

If used with other natural therapies (meditation, crystals, aroma therapy, Bach Flower remedies, homeopathy, etc.) Reiki will reinforce their effect.

It can be used also as complementary therapy, because Reiki is truly a complementary care. It complements and enhances the health care the patient receives in the hospital or from other health care providers.

Have you tried Reiki? If yes, how did you feel afterward? Did you have a noticeable change in your mental/emotional outlook immediately following your treatment? Did you notice a difference in your physical conditions? If no, would you be willing to try Reiki as a method of healing? If not, what is it the detours you from wanting to try it? What condition/s do you have that could benefit from Reiki treatments?

The 5 Principles of Reiki



These are the 5 Reiki Principles as I was taught them in my training. There are different variations as there is no actual written documentation of Dr. Usui’s principles, they were passed down from teacher to student.

The basic principle of these precepts is to take yourself one day at a time. Dr. Usui suggested meditating (praying, affirming, etc) on the 5 principals every morning. He believed that following the 5 Reiki Principals was the foundation of healing & opening ourselves up to the Reiki energy


worryFor most of us, stress is a major issue in our daily lives. If just for one day we could try to stop worrying so much, we could all live more peacefully which in turn, will also bring peace to others. Not to mention, lowering your stress will also benefit your health! So just for today trust in Spirit, Source, God (or yourself!) and know that everything is going to work out just fine. It always does.



Anger at others or oneself or at the whole world, creates serious blockages in one’s angerenergy. It is the most complex inner enemy.

Reiki is an excellent tool to remove anger blockages which have accumulated in the body over years, but it cannot keep you from becoming angry in the current moment.

Letting go of anger brings peace into the mind, body & soul.


honestySupport yourself and your family respectably, without harming others. Earn a respectable living, live a life of honor. Doing your work honestly brings more purpose and meaning into your life. When you do your work honestly and with purpose, at the end of the day you’ll feel good about yourself and feel more fulfilled about your work.



We are always asking for more and only seeing what we don’t have. Let’s try for one day to be grateful for what we do have ‚ÄĒ like a job, a car that takes you where you need to go, a roof over your head, good health and a family that loves you unconditionally and supports you. When we are grateful for what we have, we will attract more good. The law of attraction states that like attracts like and lack attracts lack, so stay positive and be grateful for what you have.


What you give out, you receive back tenfold. Be nice, loving and caring to everyone, even if it’s not your favorite person in the world. We all deserve love and kindness. At the end of the day we will feel better about ourselves for bringing some light and love into someone else’s day, even if it’s just for a moment.

Sometimes life can be overwhelming. There are people and situations that anger or worry us. It can be easier to use our words to wound others, rather than hold our tongue or find a kind word or gesture to uplift someone. We can feel so down & out that we only see what’s wrong instead of focusing on the things that we do have & are right in our lives.

So, just for today, let’s try to put these principles into practice &¬† see how they change our perspective, day & lives! How will you use these principles today? was it difficult for you to catch yourself & use your self-control? Did using the 5 Principles of Reiki help you have a better day today than yesterday? Is this something you could incorporate into your life on a daily basis? How could it change you if you did?
