I love to read – and a few years ago while on a lovely vacation on Maui with my sister, I discovered romance novels! I love the happy endings, the wisdom in the relationships, the teachings in the stories.

I recently read a book called “The Summerhouse” by Jude Deveraux. It was a fascinating story of three troubled women who had the opportunity to go back into the past for just three weeks, and make different choices. It was an empowering story – yes, with a very happy ending. But what it really offered me was the opportunity to look at my life and my choices, and to ask myself “If I had the chance to go back in time and change the past, where would I go and what would I do?”

Interestingly, I was not particularly drawn to going back and making better financial or business choices.. and there could have been many of those! I spent some time and thought about past romantic relationships. There was so much dysfunction, so much codependency, so many times I was not loving and taking care of myself! Where did my unhealthy patterns begin, and how would I change them if I could go back for three weeks?

What would you change if you could go back to your past? How would that affect your life now?

While we can’t transport back to the past like the women in the book did, what we can do – and what all of us who know Second Degree Reiki can do – is to send Reiki distant healing back in time. We can send healing to a past or current relationship. We can send healing to “the time and place that is the source of _____ (fill in the blank)”. And the healing we send to the past will know where to go – whether it is a past life, early in your current life, etc.

So, in thinking about how I might change my past, I received some wonderful ideas about where to send Reiki distant healing!
