Ahhhh…an opportunity to withdraw from the stress and stimuli of outside thoughts, concerns and situations and actively connect with my best friend, Reiki; I re-zone, let go of distractions and REST in who I am. At times I’ll notice sensation, usually warmth or tingling in the area where my hands rest. Other times there’s a reassurance that comes over me ~ there’s something ‘more than me’ at work here. This something is not ‘out there’ but ‘inside of me’.
Reiki practice gives me an on-going reminder that there is a deep aspect of me that’s never thrown off balance, that remains unruffeled and undisturbed by the appearances and illusions of daily life. My daily practice reminds me, brings me back to the Reiki Principles:
Just for today do not worry.
Just for today do not anger.
Earn your living honestly.
Honor your parents, teachers and elders.
Show gratitude to every living thing.
Daily practice has an on-going residual effect on my entire being ~ As I relax into being present with Reiki, peace takes residence within me.
