A Peaceful Way 2018 Fall Newsletter

It has been awhile since I have written a Peaceful Way Newsletter, but things are moving along in Meaford. There have been some changes…I changed to my maiden name – Jane Rosalea Brown, (married name is Robertson), but mostly I am following my ‘bliss’ as the saying goes. My Conscious Aging workshops sure revealed to me how important it is to really love what you are doing!


Aging is a wondrous thing!  It does come with some wisdom…many things that my parents tried to share and I didn’t listen to them, but my greatest awareness or wisdom has been to discover the power of love…love of self, love of others, love of nature and love of the spirit that flows through all life. I still do not know what ‘God’ is or how life began, but that’s okay, I am accepting and so grateful for all my life experiences of ups and downs.  I may hold on to some ‘issues’ or anger from long ago but working on ‘letting go’.  The older I get I realize how foolish it is to hold on…hold on to what?  There is only the present moment.


So I am filling my days with doing things I like to do and serving in my community in small ways.  I am meeting new people who seem to ‘fit’ and ‘flow’ with me and what a blessing to be with them.  I am connecting with my old friends whom I love and there seems to be no separation in our love and friendship, it is always full of laughter and love and shared heart aches that life brings.  Each day my husband Ian and I enjoy the beauty of our area!

I have not given up on facilitating groups or sacred circles, but I am enjoying being part of a group where the younger women are facilitators and share their wisdom, challenges and hopes for the future.  Being an elder, a mother and a grandmother is a lovely thing and a time just to be who I am…after all these years of searching.  I think it is about accepting myself and seeing my beauty beyond the physical and what I am finding is that I am part of the mystery, part of the universe, part of creation and will always be…

My Service is now offering Inner Peace Reiki and Natural Sound Sessions with Peaceful Way spirituality that are bringing great results to my clients and to the horses that I offer Reiki to at Hope Haven Therapeutic Centre.  Please e-mail for an appointment goldenlightcentre@rogers.com   I will be offering Reiki II course soon, so please register.

What a colourful fall we are having in Meaford and Grey County.  But as I look out my window into the forest, I can see many bare trees and know it is a sign of colder weather ahead.  Nature prepares us, gives us signals, but often in our busy lives, we fail to notice signals that assist us to live a more loving and healthy life.

Something moves us to go deeper

and deeper into our consciousness

until we finally listen.

Then who we are is truly revealed.

Within, is a place of beauty

always presence

infinite wisdom

eternal love.

Let us share who we truly are. Now is the time.

I look forward to seeing you for a Reiki/Sound and/or Peaceful Way spiritual session,

May we all live with compassionate mindfulness and love each day,

Peacefully, Jane

Reiki is a wonderful modality for relieving stress.  For over 21 years, I have witnessed the beauty of Reiki and its relaxing and soothing powers with my Reiki students, clients and animals.

Reiki is a stress reduction and relaxation technique that reduces physical discomfort and promotes the body’s own healing abilities. The word Reiki (pronounced Ray-Key) is made up from two Japanese words “rei” meaning for universal life and ‘ki” meaning life force energy. Reiki is a Japanese holistic, light-touch, energy-based modality.
It is a powerful natural system that unlocks the inner flow of vital energy. It is an individual experience that assists the body to restore and balance natural energy. In a natural, balanced state the body can heal itself.

Here are some of Reiki’s wonderful benefits ~

•Creates deep relaxation and aids the body to release stress and tension
•Aids better sleep
•May reduce blood pressure
•Helps relieve or lessen pain
•Assists the body in cleaning itself from toxins
•Supports the immune system and assist natural healing
•Increases vitality and raises the vibrational frequency of the body
•Creates a relaxed, harmonious atmosphere for meditation
I am trained as a USUI Reiki Master Practitioner and Teacher in the USUI Reiki Rhoyo tradition founded by Dr. Mikao Usui in the late 1800’s in Japan.
If you are suffering from stress and anxiety, a Reiki Session can bring you relaxation and energy balancing to calm you.  Reiki enhances our spiritual awareness too. Many clients have deep, relaxing meditations during their sessions.
E-mail: goldenlightcentre@rogers.com  today for an appointment in Meaford, ON
Fee $70.00 1 hour session  Weekday and some evenings, by appointment.

Peacefully, Jane

Guest Article ~ 7 Simple Mantras for Healing and Transformation

woman meditating

Everything in creation is, at its most refined level, sound or vibration. Every tree, every flower, every part of your body has its own unique vibration. Even the qualities you express in your life such as happiness, joy, abundance, and love are vibrations.

When you are healthy, happy, and vibrant, these vibrations are harmonizing with each other like a magnificent cosmic symphony. However, if the vibration of any area becomes distorted, the harmony breaks down, leading to a lack of wholeness and some discomfort in your life. Many forms of healing are based on knowing the correct sound or vibration and reintroducing it into that area, whereby you can restore the balance, harmony, and comfort once again.

Nature itself is full of sounds—birds singing, the wind blowing through the trees, waves breaking on the beach, innocent children laughing, and so many more. Unfortunately, for much of our time nowadays, we separate ourselves from nature. When you spend time in nature, listening to these sounds, your physiology becomes harmonized with the rhythms and flow of nature.

All traditions of the world have used sound for healing, whether the beating of a drum, a bell, a gong, or a sacred chant. The ancient Vedic Tradition of India has taken this a step further, exploring and refining the use of sound over thousands of years to formulate it into the Vedic Science of Mantras.

Mantras are specific sounds or vibrations whose effects are known. When either chanted aloud or repeated silently, they can create a desired effect in any area of your physiology or life—for healing, transformation, and inner awakening. This is, of course, a vast subject and there are mantras for everything from curing snakebites to spiritual awakening. It would take a whole lifetime to master this wisdom; however, we’ll discuss a few of the more practical uses here.


Japa means the repetition of a mantra so it encompasses all uses of mantras. However, Japa is most commonly associated with a fixed number of repetitions of a mantra. Usually a string of beads, known as a Mala, with a set number of beads would be used to keep count—one repetition per bead. Traditionally, most Malas have 108 “counter” beads and a “guru” bead used to indicate where to begin and end. Sometimes shorter malas with 54 or 27 beads can be used with longer mantras.

Using the Mala will often involve making a commitment. Let’s say you have a particular obstacle in your life. Knowing the mantra to help harmonize that situation, you might choose to repeat it 108 times (one Mala) for the next 30 days.

Deity Mantra

There are literally thousands of deities in the Eastern traditions, each associated with a different attribute and each having its own mantra, which invokes that attribute. For a Hindu, repeating one of these mantras would be a form of worshipping that deity. However, for those not so religiously inclined, the deities and their attributes should be viewed in their subtler context, as archetypal energies.

These energies are all within you, either dormant or in a state of imbalance or balance. When they are dormant, you may experience a lack in that area; when out of balance, you may experience some disruption; and when in balance, you may enjoy harmony and fulfillment.

By repeating one of these mantras, you can activate and harmonize its effects in all areas of your life. A simple deity mantra is:

  • GAM (gaam) – For removing obstacles and blockages and bringing wisdom in your life.

Healing Mantras

As we’ve discussed, everything is sound and any discomfort or disease is a distortion of the sound in some area of the body. Reintroducing the correct sound helps to restore the harmony in that area. Healing mantras are normally repeated with the attention in the area of discomfort—or, you could say, directing the vibration to where it is needed.

There are some powerful healing mantras, which are best learned from a qualified teacher; however, here are some of the simpler ones:

  • For the sinuses: Mmmmm
  • For the ears: Nnnnnnn
  • For the eyes: Eeemmm
  • For the throat: Gaa Gha
  • For the jaw: Yaa Yu Yai

The vowels sounds can also be used for healing.

  • Aaa
  • Eeeee
  • Eye
  • Ooooo
  • Uuuuuu

These are non-local, meaning you can chant one of them and direct its vibration wherever you choose.

Chakra Mantras

Consciousness is transforming into matter at every point in the Universe, but is more lively in certain places. On the earth, we call these energy centers a vortex; in the body, we call them chakrasChakrasaren’t physical, but you can imagine the main seven in the body located along the spine. Each reflects different qualities in your life. For most people, their chakras are blocked or stuck, diminishing the flow of energy supporting those particular qualities or over-emphasizing them.

By putting your attention in the area of each chakra and chanting the mantra associated with it, you can begin to enliven the chakra and release its qualities in your life. There are several different sets of mantras for the chakras, the following set is for general everyday use. It’s important to do the whole set rather than just focusing on one or two. Starting with the lowest (first) chakra, bring your attention to that area of the body and repeat the sound 1 to 3 times aloud or silently.

Chakra Location Association Mantra
First Chakra (base of the spine) survival instincts LAAM
Second Chakra (sacral area) sensuality, creative inspiration VAAM
Third Chakra (solar plexus, navel) personal power, ego RAAM
Fourth Chakra (center of chest) unconditional love, compassion YAAM
Fifth Chakra (throat) creativity HAAM
Sixth Chakra (between eyebrows) insight, inspiration KSHAAM
Seventh Chakra (crown, top of head) spiritual union OMM

General Mantras

The following are mantras that could be used at any time to enliven the qualities contained within their vibration.

  • Shanti (shan tee): to restore peace and harmony
  • Anandam (aan an dam): to restore inner joy and contentment

Enlightenment Mantras

Enlightenment is a state of balance, harmony, and self-awareness on all levels. Therefore, all mantras indirectly support this spiritual goal. However, the Gayatri Mantra, being the “Mother” of the wisdom of the entire creation, gives you the direct path to Enlightenment. Traditionally, it is chanted at times of transition during the day—sunrise, noon, and sunset—but it can also be chanted at any convenient time. It is best chanted a minimum of three times each session.

OM BHUR BHUVAH SUVAHA (Om Bhoor Bhoo-va Su-va-ha)
TAT SAVITUR VARENYAM (Tat Sa-vee-toor Var-ayn-yam)
BARGO DEVASYA DHIMAHI (Bar-go Day-vas-ya Dhee-ma-hee)
DHIYO YO NAH PRACHODAYAT (Dhee-yo Yo Nah Pra-cho-da-yaat)

Meditation Mantras

The mantras already mentioned are intended to create or support something on the active level of life, and as such, they have meanings and/or intentions associated with them.

Meditation mantras have no particular meanings or specific intentions. Their role is simply to take the awareness from activity to the inner realm of silence and infinite possibilities. These mantras re-connect you to your most fundamental level of Being and allow you to begin to restore the memory of these qualities in all areas of your life.

Techniques, such as the Chopra Center’s Primordial Sound Meditation, select the mantra most suitable to guide the student on his/her journey of spiritual awakening. As such, these mantras are only taught by qualified teachers or in our online course format.

There is a more general mantra that can be used by anyone, somewhat for this same purpose. This mantra is SO HUM. It is usually used in conjunction with the breath.

  • Sitting comfortably, with eyes closed, begin breathing normally.
  • Silently begin repeating “SO” as you breathe in and repeating “HUM” as you breathe out.
  • The use of the mantra should be easy and effortless. Whenever the attention drifts away, gently bring it back.
  • This meditation can be practiced twice daily for 15-20 minutes each sitting.

As I said, this is a vast subject but I hope this has given you glimpse into this fascinating science.

Flow inside me, source of the source of joy, life essence, the wine of peace that moves in my hand, then out…Rumi

I love this quote by Rumi as it shows the flow of our universal life force that flows into us and out of us all day long.  When we meditate we can really tap into the flow and feel its love.  Reiki is a Japanese spiritual energy modality that allows this flow to relax and calm us.  It is amazing how quickly it calms animals as well as people.  Rumi allowed the flow and experienced its joy…the wine of peace….how wonderful.

In January, I will be offering weekly Reiki sessions that also include sound healing in Meaford, ON.  Register now for your relaxation session and experience the ‘wine of peace’.   For more info on Reiki visit – http://www.innerpeacereiki.wordpress.com

Peacefully, Jane

I love the simplicity of the Reiki Affirmations. These are presented to students of USUI Reiki as a way to live each day.  Daily use of Reiki takes us on an evolutionary journey where our consciousness continues to expand through its loving energy, an energy of light that flows through and around us in each moment.  Reiki enhances this energy and allows our body, mind and spirit to awaken, to relax and to heal.  The beauty of Reiki is wonderful to experience.

Bring the Reiki affirmations, or as they are also called Reiki precepts, into your daily meditation practice.  They will lift and lighten your spirit and give you a fresh perspective about how you are going to move through your day.

For more information on Reiki, I invite you to my Inner Peace Reiki and Equine Reiki sites.  Reiki sessions are available in Meaford, ON.  Please e-mail:  goldenlightcentre@rogers.com for an appointment.

My Reiki journey with a friend’s horse called Sundance has taught me so much about how sensitive and responsive animals are to a Reiki session. I already knew that my dog Ginger, who passed away last November, loved receiving Reiki.

horses 006

Sundance is a 5 year old gelding who lives in a pasture with a 10 year, quiet and gentle mare. He is a big kid who really likes being the head of the herd over the mare. He also likes being the boss of people but this attitude is changing.

I noticed a huge change in his deameanor last Wednesday. He was happy to see me and walked quietly with me without banging his head at me. He stood quietly on a loose lead while he had his Reiki session and instead of nipping me, he nuzzled me as if to say ‘thank-you.’ I chanted with him as I offered him Reiki and he seemed to like it too! He showed all the signs of relaxation -chewing, hanging his head, closing his eyes, relaxing his hind hoof. He even moved to show me where he wanted my hands.

He had a visitor last weekend, who is wanting to ride him this spring. This fellow came to the farm to visit Sundance. Instead of being bossy, he allowed his visitor to groom him and walk in the pasture with him. He was gentle and response to his new friend.

Reiki heals animals and humans on all levels – physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. Sundance has revealed big changes in his attitude towards people and his pasture mate. He is becoming a partner with me and sharing space nicely. He is not as food aggressive with the mare.

I look forward to sharing my services with other horses in the County of Grey and surrounding area. Please e-mail: goldenlightcentre@rogers.com if you are interested in a session for your horse(s). For more information about Reiki for horses please visit: Peaceful Path Equine Reiki.

Let me introduce you to Sundance.  He’s a young horse whom I’ve been offering Equine Reiki sessions.  He is a wonderful horse but was quite a bossy and food aggressive gelding when I met him in January, but since his Reiki sessions, his attitude has changed and he is able to stand quietly now while receiving a hands-on Reiki session and he is more respective of his guardian and his pasture companion.

Animals do not fake relaxation and calmness.  Sundance, like other horses, is very receptive to Reiki.  I invite you to my new site Peaceful Path Equine Reiki to learn more about Reiki and my service for equines.  I am very excited about extending my Reiki Services to Horses.  Every horse can benefit from Reiki to improve their well-being.

Please visit: Peaceful Path Equine Reiki  I look forward to serving you and your horse.
