Today i received a call from a former colleague ..... we had lost touch ...... he had been ill, i had left messages of concern, he had not had the health or time in his struggle to call me back ......i sent him prayers and Reiki energy from afar, and today recovered and returned to full work he called to talk ......and shared that in his darkest hours he had read some of the hospice stories on my Blog ..... and it had been helpful to him ......

Today i gave a teaching rounds for young physicians on Hospice, their attention and interest was moving .....and one young docs told me privately that they had read my Blog and that it is moving them toward a career in Palliative care.

And today a Reiki teacher who hadn't heard from me in awhile and who had not seen me post a new Blog for awhile decided to call just to see if i was OK .....

Yesterday someone called  - i had cared for a relative of theirs - and they just needed to talk ..... it is something we do in  Hospice...... we are available to talk about things ...... bereavement is a part of the Journey, a Hospice workers job doesn't end with transition.

This afternoon i talked with one of my hospice nurses, she had been up all night, she didn't feel 100 percent herself, but a patient she had been working with transitioned this afternoon and she felt the need to be with this patient and this family, no matter how tired she was.......

The stories i am seeing every day are so inspiring, home health aids,  nurses, social workers, volunteers, chaplains, music therapists, doctors .....going into patient's homes and working with families ...... keeping focus that people who cannot be cured are still alive and still important, still worth our time and caring sometimes simply brings me to a place of awe seeing the commitment and hard work of team mates around me ........

I received an email last month asking how i would respond to someone who had been told, "Reiki shouldn't be used in Hospice" ("why not?" we used it all the time") ....... whether it is Traditional or unTraditional Chaplaincy, Music therapy, Reiki ...... finding methods that bring us to a place of calm help us share that calm with our patients...... fear and loneliness add to pain and suffering, and calm and connection bring light to the time people have is a gift that helps the Journey.

Sharing stories is a good thing ...... because stories of courage and caring send ripples that help others in their Journey...... It reminds us that what we do is worth doing ......

To my co workers thank you for the inspiration you provide every day, to my patients thank you for being my teachers in your courage, to those of you who share stories of caring thank you........and perhaps ripples will continue to spread.

  2. I’m giving a testimony about Dr. KOKOBI the great Herbalist, he has the
    cure to all manner of diseases, he cured my  breast cancer, though I
    went through different website I saw different testimonies about
    different spell casters and herbalist, I was like: ‘Many people have
    the breast cancer remedy, So why are people still suffering from it?’ I thought of
    it, then I decided to contact , I didn’t believe him that
    much, I just wanted to give him a try, he replied my mail and Needed
    some Information about me, then I sent them to him, he prepared it
    (CURE) and sent it to Airfreight Online Courier Service for delivery,
    he gave my details to the Courier Office, they told me that 3-5 days I
    will receive the package and i took the medicine as prescribed by him
    and I went for check-up 1 week after finishing the medicine, I was
    tested breast cancer negative, if you are breast cancer patient or any cancer patient at all. Do me
    a favour for you to contact him and I will try my possible best to make
    sure you get cured, when you contact him, make sure you tell him that
    I referenced you.. contact him via: You can also message him on whatsapp +254746618873 and for more info message me @
