To Those I’ve Loved

To those I have loved and always will but who chose another path, I say Thank you.

Thank you for being who you were to me. It was necessary in the unfolding of our lives.

I’m sorry if you felt unseen by me. What I could not see was your limitations, your victimhood, if you will.

I cannot perceive you as less than, so you thought I wasn’t acknowledging or understanding you.

What I didn’t understand was why you would fight so hard for your limitations and almost seemed insulted at the suggestion that you had the power to command, steer and administer to your own life.

I hereby release you from any further service to me. I have only gratitude for all you have done and all you have been to me. I move forward with the knowledge that you volunteered and served from a place of love and with love I release you to what ever your path is next.

About Vicki

I was born and raised a Central New Yorker but lived 18 yrs. in Va Bch, VA. I am the mother of two young men, who are 34 and 15 yrs. of age. I have been doing Reflexology since I was 11 yrs old, I have been a teaching Reiki Master for 17 yrs and have been Dr. Mom for my family using therapeutic grade essential oils as our medicine for 12 yrs. Having come from a functional family but living many years in a megalopolis combined with many years of being a catalyst for healing, gives me a varied point of view. Perspective is one of my favorite playgrounds! If you'd like a consultation for Reiki or aromatherapy please feel free to contact me at

    • Thank you Laura! I know that releasing what I once thought was love and focusing on love of myself and giving unconditionally has begun bringing miracles in my life! Right now I’m getting loved by someone across the country I’ve never even seen face to face. My parents would call miracles, that which we now find common place. Life if good! Love you right back! ❤
