Just for today… Do not worry… In a world based in fear and anxiety?

worry 1Hi everyone

This present set of weekly blogs is focussing on the 5 principles of Reiki with last week being “Just for today do not anger”. It was so interesting how the entire week has seemed to see the drama of anger playing out in the media and social networks. We live in a world filled with anger and as people get sucked into it, it leads to hatred.

As Reiki practitioners we are encouraged to practise this ‘no anger’ on a daily basis. a positive phrase to describe this principle is “Just for today I am gentle and calm”.

Now onto today’s blog: Just for today do not worry. The positive phrase for this principle is: “Just for today I trust”

When we worry we have lost faith. We are no longer able to see the big picture or trust in what is happening to us. We worry about the future aworrynd try to control it in order to protect ourselves from pain. Mostly we worry because we don’t believe that the world is full of abundance and we feel that we have to fight for everything we want.

Here is something practical to try:
Just for today, choose something that has been worrying you, and just for today don’t worry about it. Ask the Divine for help with it instead. The best part is that it is just for today. We can do something for one day that if we thought we had to do for a lifetime would feel overwhelming.

Wishing you a wonderful week of abundant blessings.

“How Do I know If You Are The Right Reiki Practitioner or Teacher for me?

Reiki teacher practitionerThis question is asked often and it is a very good one to ask. For me, one of the best features of Reiki is that it empowers us on every level. We take our lives into our own hands, so to speak, and realise that if we want to live healthy well lives, we need to know more about what is right for us. Don’t be afraid to ask questions, and here are a few good questions to start with.

Pamela Miles, an American Reiki Teacher/Practitioner has written an article titled “3 Questions for Reiki Practitioners”. This is well worth the read as questions open one up to a deeper understanding. Read her full article here: http://reikiinmedicine.org/clinical-practice/questions-for-reiki-practitioners/

Here are some more questions that can get you started, whether you are considering experiencing a Reiki session, or whether you are wanting to learn Reiki for yourself.

1. What is Reiki?

A Reiki Teacher/Practitioner will be able to tell you in a few short sentences, what Reiki is. For example: “Reiki healing is a natural therapy that gently balances life energies and brings health and well being to the recipient. ”

2. Does Reiki have healing benefits?

One of the greatest Reiki healing health benefits is stress reduction and relaxation, which triggers the bodies natural healing abilities, and improves and maintains health.

We don’t need to sell the benefits of Reiki.

3. What is your Reiki lineage?

This question is very important as a Reiki practitioner should be able to trace him/herself back to Dr Mikao Usui.

Position 2

4. Are you registered with your local Reiki Association?

This question may seem pedantic, but if the Reiki practitioner/teacher is registered, then you have the peace of mind that s/he is willing to follow a code of ethics while teaching or practising Reiki.

A helpful local site is: The Reiki Masters Association of South Africa: http://www.reikihealing.co.za

5. Do you practice Reiki on yourself?

If a practitioner/teacher is practising daily Reiki, s/he is walking his/her talk. You will see it in the person’s attitude and way of life.

Have a happy Reiki day!
