I will have to miss the meetup tonight.
I need to clarify some aspects of the conversation the other night. My references to positive and negative were in regards to electrical polarity, they were not a value judgement. When I am saying woman are better in the area of intuition I am actually saying they are taller. Taller is just a recognition that someone has a greater reach than another, which can be compensated for in some way, using a tool like a stool or becoming more skilled. Statistics teaches how to draw conclusions from random samples. The Reiki classes were just another example of a random sample for me, mostly woman and lots of intuition. I am drawing a conclusion on a lifetime of random samples. I may be wrong but it looks like woman have a longer reach in the area of intuition than men. Another way to look at this is woman have exercised a natural ability to a greater extent. I agree that men also have intuition but I have met far fewer men and they are all shorter than woman. Everyone responds to their own intuition but many people don't see it, woman accept and talk about it more than men. Crystal and Lynne are taller than me, Crystal claims Lynne is taller than her. You are taller than me which I find perplexing when other woman who were taller than me could see why.
I am grateful for your help getting things down from a shelf I could not reach. I was using a stool before you helped me but I was still trying to grab something I could not see and was feeling around with my hands.
I am trying to communicate to you in the language that I know but I have to find the language that you speak. Communicating between fields of science is like communication between two languages. I have realized that some of the things I am trying to say is like telling you how the car works and you just need to know how to work the car. What I am trying to talk about comes from the study of energy from different traditions. It's all energy and each tradition moves it in a different way and you can't hurt people by moving the energy. I also see that the energy doesn't move unless the individual can let go.
The melt downs you mentioned are just a large movement of energy. It's the same thing that happens when you open a dam. I agree with you, the individual opens the dam. The next time it happens try and notice if your body is actually warmer. I found I get warmer after moving large amounts of energy (physical or emotional pain).
I talked to my oldest brother yesterday. He will begin testing for the same kind of dementia as my father yet he is only 63. I am grateful I began healing PTSD at a younger age. I am grateful that someone sees the connection between PTSD and dementia.
I will see a family in the near future. One of the girls worked in the lock up ward at the VA, these are the guys that may never go home. The job put enormous stress on her and at this time it's a good thing she has a new job. She felt strongly about her job and the need for help. There is a whole new layer of stress for the folks at the VA because they are closing the rural VA hospitals and moving the staff and residents to bigger cities.

Date: Wed, 14 Dec[masked]:39:16 -0500
Season's Greetings Everyone,
At the end of each year, I take a poll to determine if the monthly event would better serve the membership on a different day or week of the month. I would like to hear from those who would like to attend but the 2nd Wednesday of the month has not worked for you. If so, please make a suggestion which would work for you. Look forward to hearing your suggestions. I will post the 2012 monthly event slot ASAP. In any case, I look forward to seeing you at our monthly Reiki Healing Circle or any of the Reiki Training Events which will be posted in our calendar. Have a fantastic heart centered Holiday and Christmas Season.
Please Note: If you hit "REPLY", your message will be sent to everyone on this mailing list ([address removed])
