We’ve been told all our lives that we need to consult ‘experts’ who DO something for us or to us so we can heal or move ahead in our personal and professional lives. Over time this belief erodes our sense of self, of knowing who we are and what we need at a given time. We become discouraged or depressed and are often guided to more ‘specialists’ who put us on short or long term medication to help or heal us. There is indeed a time and place for seeking out professional advice and guidance from medical professionals. The right medication or treatment plan can see us through some tough transitions in life while we work on healing ourselves from within.
Marianne Williamson says in her book, The Age of Miracles, that “At a certain point in life, it’s simply our destiny to have to face ourselves; to be shown everything not healed within us, challenged to either transform our wounds or to begin to die from them.”
We can choose to turn within, to use empowering tools to help expose us to ourselves, to help ourselves heal and grow rather than developing acute or chronic physical conditions that put a damper on our creative abilities.
The above questions are meant to trigger your desire to explore more, to open yourself to the possibility that you and only you can unlock your gifts. Your body and mind have the answers to your happiness, to your hidden potentials. Practicing Reiki can help and guide you in your journey into wholeness. Answers come to you gently as you open to the work within.
So how does giving yourself the gift of Reiki move you toward your answers? Through daily hands-on practice ~ it’s simple and straight forward. In my experience, life’s answers are oftentimes very simple yet profound. Reiki practice deepens our self-awareness and as this happens, our innate inner wisdom brings us to balance within ourselves.
There are also physical benefits in learning to give yourself Reiki. Most people feel relaxed, more present and grounded in their lives. Reiki practice helps nourish and nurture all the organs and systems of the body. There is nothing more nurturing than touch that as been empowered by Reiki. Everyone shares the benefit of Reiki; it helps them to ‘let go’ and be present in the moment.
How long does it take? Our Reiki journey continues for the rest of our lives. New gifts and interests come our way and we are open to them and move forward. Life issues continue to present themselves and we are present and aware of choices rather than making decisions unconsciously or from an old way of looking at life. Including Reiki practice in your life contributes in a highly positive way to how you see and experience the world.
