How To Stay Motivated Through Hard Times (Ep.2) 

Daphne Dash 2nd Episode of “The Reiki Empress”
Here she shares a simple method on how to face hard situations and ways to conquer depression and anxiety.

👑How to stay motivated through hard times 👑

So the first thing is establishing good habits and coping methods. 📝
A lot of times when we’re stuck in a rut
We resort to bad habits, we become anxious and depressed. I’m going to share a few things that work for me. These things help me stay motivated through hard situations and things that may discourage us beyond our control. So first thing is to write down times you handled something poorly and make a list. List At least 3-5 things and then next to it write how you could have handled it better. Also, write down 3-5 realistic goals you want to accomplish and the habits you can create to make them a reality. Once we establish the unhealthy habits holding us back, we can then incorporate the health habits.
So what you’re doing is preparing and programming yourself to handle things better when faced with any issues that can be discouraging. & also aligning yourself with realistic goals you can accomplish.
Next step is feeding yourself positive affirmations daily. I like to listen to videos of positive affirmations on YouTube at night before bed and fall to sleep to them so it can reach my subconscious mind.
One thing to remember is that God is moving in ways that may be out of our view so what may seem like opposition or resistance can truly be a blessing in disguise. I know it’s hard to unlearn things but the quickest way is creating and learning new ways and making it a habit.
After a few weeks or consistency you will see your anxiety and depression disappears. Remember thoughts and words have power so when you feel yourself giving into negative thoughts or doubt, fight back with empowering words and affirmations. Many times we curse ourselves with our words and thoughts. 💜💜✨✨✨

Fake Healers + Spirituality (Ep.1) 

Daphne Dash jumps off her first podcast about true enlightenment and fake “spirituality”. The Reiki Empress takes you along for her healing journey. More Episodes Coming soon. Tune in ✨👑 #TheReikiEmpress

What’s up it’s ya girl Daphne Dash aka The Reiki Empress and this is my first podcast ! What’s upppp!?
I’m so happy to be able to finally get back into this podcasting thing and spread all this healing energy with y’all cause that’s exactly what reiki is. You know being from where I’m from a small town (Lafayette,Louisiana) and being a little brown girl I’d never thought I’d discover something so amazing. It’s changed my life and I truly wanna share some light with y’all can I do that? Ok, ok so let’s get right into it cause this has been heavy on my heart fr. There’s a lot of people claiming to be “spiritual” beings and enlightened but not doing the true work. A lot of ppl focused on magic and witchcraft when this healing and awakening is deeper than that. It’s about true soul power and energy. I don’t even like using the word spirit anymore because spirits possess people. Spirits are used in spells to harm people and it’s just not what true enlightenment and righteousness is about. Peace and love to all. ✨👑

What is Reiki?

Reiki (霊気, /ˈreɪki/) is a Japanese form of alternative medicine called energy healing. Reiki practitioners use a technique called palm healing or hands-on healing through which a "universal energy" is said to be transferred through the palms of the practitioner to the patient in order to encourage emotional or physical healing.

Fast facts on Reiki

Here are some key points about Reiki. More detail is in the main article.

Reiki is a form of energy therapy.
Despite skepticism in some circles, it is growing in popularity.
It involves the transfer of energy by laying on hands.
Reiki’s advocates say it can treat many conditions and emotional states. The word “Reiki” means “mysterious atmosphere, miraculous sign.” It comes from the Japanese words “rei” (universal) and “ki” (life energy). Reiki is a type of energy healing.

Energy healing targets the energy fields around the body.

According to practitioners, energy can stagnate in the body where there has been physical injury or possibly emotional pain. In time, these energy blocks can cause illness.

Energy medicine aims to help the flow of energy and remove blocks in a similar way to acupuncture or acupressure. Improving the flow of energy around the body, say practitioners, can enable relaxation, reduce pain, speed healing, and reduce other symptoms of illness.

Reiki has been around for thousands of years. Its current form was first developed in 1922 by a Japanese Buddhist called Mikao Usui, who reportedly taught 2,000 people the Reiki method during his lifetime. The practice spread to the U.S. through Hawaii in the 1940s, and then to Europe in the 1980s.

It is commonly referred to as palm healing or hands-on healing.

What happens in a Reiki session?

Reiki is best held in a peaceful setting, but it can be carried out anywhere. The patient will sit in a comfortable chair or lie on a table, fully clothed. There may or may not be music, depending on the patient’s preference.

The practitioner places their hands lightly on or over specific areas of the head, limbs, and torso using different hand shapes, for between 2 and 5 minutes. The hands can be placed over 20 different areas of the body.

If there is a particular injury, such as a burn, the hands may be held just above the wound.

While the practitioner holds their hands lightly on or over the body, the transfer of energy takes place. During this time, the practitioner’s hands may be warm and tingling. Each hand position is held until the practitioner senses that the energy has stopped flowing.

When the practitioner feels that the heat, or energy, in their hands has abated, they will remove their hands and may place them over a different area of the body.

Some Reiki techniques

The techniques involved have names such as:

centering
clearing
beaming
extracting harmful energies
infusing
smoothing and raking the aura
Some Reiki practitioners will use crystals and chakra healing wands, because they find these can enable healing or protect a home from negative energy.

The Elephant Rope (Motivation)  

A gentleman was walking through an elephant camp, and he spotted that the elephants weren’t being kept in cages or held by the use of chains.

All that was holding them back from escaping the camp, was a small piece of rope tied to one of their legs. As the man gazed upon the elephants, he was completely confused as to why the elephants didn’t just use their strength to break the rope and escape the camp. They could easily have done so, but instead, they didn’t try to at all.Curious and wanting to know the answer, he asked a trainer nearby why the elephants were just standing there and never tried to escape. 

The trainer replied; 

“When they are very young and much smaller we use the same size rope to tie them and, at that age, it’s enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away. They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free.”

The only reason that the elephants weren’t breaking free and escaping from the camp was that over time they adopted the belief that it just wasn’t possible. 

Moral of the story: No matter how much the world tries to hold you back, always continue with the belief that what you want to achieve is possible. Believing you can become successful is the most important step in actually achieving it.

Pray First, Aim High, Stay Focused (Motivation) 

A Story Parable:  Pray First, Aim High, Stay Focused. 

There once was a man who had nothing for his family to eat. He had an old shotgun and three shells. So, he decided that he would go out and kill something for dinner. 

As he went down the road, he saw a rabbit and he shot at the rabbit and missed it. 

Then he saw a squirrel and fired a shot at the squirrel and missed it.
As he went further, he saw a wild turkey in the tree and he had only one bullet, but a voice came to him and said "pray first, aim high and stay focused."

However, at the same time, he saw a deer which was a better kill. He brought the gun down and aimed at the deer. 

But, then he saw a rattle snake between his legs about to bite him, so he naturally brought the gun down further to shoot the rattle snake.

Still, the voice said again to him, "I said 'pray, aim high and stay focused.' " 

So, the man decided to listen to the voice. He prayed, then aimed the gun high up in the tree and shot the wild turkey. 

The bullet bounced off the turkey and killed the deer. The handle fell off the gun and hit the snake in the head and killed it. And, when the gun had gone off, it knocked him into a pond. 

When he stood to look around, he had fish in all his pockets, a dead deer and a turkey to eat. The snake (Satan) was dead simply because the man listened to God. 

Moral of the story: Pray first before you do anything, aim and shoot high in your goals, and stay focused on God.

• The Ram • 12/13/2020 (Story time)  

I remember when I was pregnant with my 2nd child, Empress Mina 👑. 
I was going through so much and had so much energy. It was like the Aries fire was being born. I recorded music the whole time being pregnant, every time 👑✨🥰. The song shared on this post is 3 years old, These days I barely Cuss in my music if at all. I realize motherhood changed me. It made me more victorious, more beautiful and more resilient. Everyday people in life are going to test you. It’s up to you to stay grounded and realize your true power is not even feeding the bs. Focus. As I said before, you have an Empire to run. Run it, or get it conquered by the enemy of distraction.
Cheers to the power of love, strength and motherhood.

A Story About Persevering (Motivation)  


One day a farmer’s donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. Finally, he decided the animal was old and the well needed to be covered up anyway it just wasn’t worth it to retrieve the donkey. He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They all grabbed a shovel and begin to shovel dirt into the well. At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly. Then, to everyone’s amazement, he quieted down. 

A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well and was astonished at what he saw. With every shovel of dirt that fell on his back, the donkey was doing something amazing. He would shake it off and take a step up. As the farmer’s neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up. 

Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and trotted off!

Moral: Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. The trick is to not get bogged down by it. We can get out of the deepest wells by not stopping. And by never giving up! Shake it off and take a step up!

The Empress Blog (12•10•2020) 

The soul wants what it wants. Peace, love and a mission. We all are like little ants in the universe. We play different positions in life and are supposed to grow with time. Never stop growing. If you become too comfortable with your decisions and never push yourself to be better than yesterday, you’ll never be truly fulfilled. Life is about learning everyday.  

Talk to your inner self more than you speak to anyone else. Have intimate conversations with your higher power often. Almost everything on this planet is going to try to get you to focus on everything else but you have to awaken your discipline.  

The things I write on “The Empress Blog” are all things I do and tell myself. I have seen amazing things happen when I can wholeheartedly just FOCUS. No one is in the way of you but, YOU.

The Empress Blog (12.7.2020)  

Winter is here and I’m adapting. We all are 😭

 I remember when I was a teenager and I would write on this site called  

“Xanga.com” It was therapy for me. A place where people could create blog posts of their everyday lives and be brutally honest. It was like an online diary and very close to what I want “The Empress Blog” to be like.   

The truth is, I look around and see so much! We all are feeling so much and it shouldn’t silence us. I’m not gonna lie, I’m thinking about rapping again. I have a hip hop soul and need to release it. When I was about 12 years old, all I did was rap. I would barely sing, and wrote rhymes all day. I freestyled for hours and these days I’m like “That little girl is still in me, she has just evolved. As we all should do.”  

Quote For today:
