Let's take a moment to reflect. How do you feel at this present moment? Now, shift your awareness towards the current global pandemic. Do you believe that world peace is attainable? If you answered yes then you are correct! World peace is attainable, especially now and is one of the very reasons why I hold communal space for the World Peace Meditation in accordance with the International Center for Reiki Training [ICRT].

The World Peace Project was initiated in 1997 when the founder of the ICRT, William Lee Rand, placed a World Peace Crystal Grid with the inscription, "May the followers of all religions and spiritual paths work together to create peace on Earth." at the magnetic North Pole in 1997, the magnetic South Pole in 1999, and the old city of Jerusalem in 2004.

Despite how painful these stories may be, at times we tell ourselves these stories over and over again because it is a familiar and comfortable practice that we have adopted, however, these stories do not have to be true. In fact, These stories are not true, but merely a past experience. Today, we have the opportunity to rewrite our story. A story of liberation. A story where peace resides.
