Life has a way of getting you where you need to be…

Self-reiki-footI often get asked the question: Why do you practice Reiki? What does it actually do for you? Well, this time I would like to answer that question from a more personal point of view.

A big part of Reiki is self Reiki. A person who has done the first level of Reiki is encouraged to do self Reiki as a daily discipline. Doing this on a daily basis helps keep me in a balanced state. It also keeps me mindful of this present moment and helps me to stay present to what is happening now without me constantly living in the past with such words as “Remember when we…” or “If only…”. Or projecting into the future with such words as “What if…?” or “Maybe…”.  Yesterday has gone, tomorrow still has to be unwrapped, but I am here in this eternal moment.

Over the past nine years, I have slowly gotten better at practising regularly, and those weeks when I keep to the discipline of self Reiki on a daily basis, I am able to remain present to whatever life has to teach me. To remain calmer, more caring and more open and accepting of others.

This gentle, hands on, technique has helped me to learn from my mistakes, to curb my anger and to be compassionate with myself as I continue to learn and grow in this life.

Lots of love, light and harmony to you all.
