The other day a friend posted a video on Instagram about her upcoming Reiki Level 2 Course. I instantly felt drawn to it, with zero hesitation! I even chose to “miss” a day on the trails snowmobiling!
I did it for me.
I did it for my husband and kids.
I did it to be a part of bringing more peace and healing into the world!
It starts with us. Making a choice.
I’ve always been a woman who appreciates and is intrigued by energy. Horoscopes were incredibly fascinating to me. Especially when I began to exercise the power of my mind, without even realizing the potential.
Our health today is a balanced mix of holistic health and modern medicine. By balanced I mean, if we need to go to the hospital or doctor, we do. If this does not need to be our first choice, we choose holistic options to support ourselves.
At a time in the world where taking a deep breath and slowing down, even for 5 minutes, could drastically shift the collective energy.
Reiki has been around for longer than I know. I was going to google it, let’s just be honest, the history and science behind things is an area I choose not to be my main focus. My life began to honestly shift even higher when I took my Reiki Level 1 course at the end of 2016. The following year I dedicated time and energy into continuing the shift, not yet realizing the powerful momentum I had going for me!
What is Reiki…
In nut shell its energy. The practitioner, me, being a conduit for energy to flow to myself or another person.
The Reiki Principles
Just for today, I will give thanks for my many blessings.
Just for today, I will not worry.
Just for today, I will not be angry.
Just for today, I will do my work honestly.
Just for today, I will be kind to every loving thing.
When our minds feel like they cannot stop, our emotions are beginning to affect us physically, we get sick, run down, tired, cranky… when we just feel like there is ‘no time to get anything done!’
This is when we need to recognize the importance of slowing down, honoring our body and it’s incredible healing power.
I first hand know the shift Reiki can assist with in someone’s life. Honestly something everyone should be taught. I know one day we could live in a world with so much more peace, by choosing to slow down and honor ourselves the way our heart and soul needs us to.
After all when our chakras are out of balance, this does affect our bodies and minds, emotionally and physically.
Be one with peace. Enjoy time with yourself. Focusing your mind. Be proud of you and allow the opinions of others to slough off.
For me, for my family, Reiki is a way of life. My kids ask me to ‘do the energy crystal thing’ most times when I run Reiki with them, I will incorporate it into their nightly oils. Another way we can connect, unwind, relax the mind, open up and truly enjoy the flow of life.
