Good morning. Happy to see so many fine folks out here and so many smiling faces. I have a very peculiar background, attitude and approach to the real world because I am a conjurer. Now, I prefer that term over magician,
because if I were a magician, that would mean that I use spells and incantations and weird gesturesorder to accomplish real magic. No, I don't do that; I'm a conjurer, who is someone who pretends to be a real magician. (Laughter) Now, how do we go about that sort of thingé
We depend on the fact that audiences, such as yourselves, will make assumptions. For example, when I walked up here and I took the microphone from the stand and switched it on, you assumed this was a microphone, which it is not. (Laughter)
As a matter of fact, this is something that about half of you, more than half of you will not be familiar with. It's a beard trimmer, you seeé And it makes a very bad microphone; I've tried it many times. (Laughter) The other assumption that you made and this little lesson is to show you that you will make assumptions.
Not only that you can, but that you will when they are properly suggested to you. You believe I'm looking at you. Wrong. I'm not looking at you. I can't see you. I know you're out there, they told me backstage, it's a full house and such. I know you're there because I can hear you, but I can't see you because I normally wear glasses. These are not glasses, these are empty frames. (Laughter)
Quite empty frames. Now why would a grown man appear before you wearing empty frames on his faceé To fool you, ladies and gentlemen, to deceive you, to show that you, too, can make assumptions. Don't you ever forget that. Now, I have to do something first of all, switch to real glasses
Reiki The Japanese Art of Healing How to Receive Reiki Attunement
Hi, this is Eileen Dey and I'm coming to youon behalf of Expert Village with how to do Reiki attunement. Reiki masters traditionallygive attunementsa Reiki classes and what they are about involved opening up ones auraand whole body to receiving the universal energy so we're able to work with it thatmuch more clearly. And so students take this time to go within, relax, focus on their breath,and most importantly they give themselves permission to receive. As a Reiki master itis my responsibility to create safe space so that and individual can go and receivethis energy. And into this space we bring about Reiki symbols which we'll talk aboutin Reiki II. And so for this attunement, the
first symbol, the power symbol, is broughtforth and brought into an individual's crown, into their forehead, their third eye, intotheir heart. All of these are signifying bringing oneness and wholeness into an individual'ssystem. And finally, a blessing of the hand to bring forth the light and healing thatReiki does offer. And also, for an individual to realize that they have that power to doself healing. Each level of Reiki training involves differentattunements and each attunement is an individual's own unique experience. And watch our nextsegment on the process of coming to oneness.
