We live in a time where we can sense, feel and know more
than ever the energy around us. Those
who are now being attuned to Reiki have an amazing ability of already sensing
the energy in and around them. Their
journey started with a calling to simply have a desire to understand why they felt
an energy that they can’t explain and now they are on a quest to improve, heal
and evolve. Like many of us from years
ago when we started, we are still on this path of evolution.
This would then lead
you to hearing your higher self or spirit to have a calling to learn more and
be more aware. When you are first learning
about Reiki there is a lot to understand and take in, but as you journey along
and practice self-healing you realize there is an awakening that has happened. It is a good practice to give yourself
enough time of 2 to 4 months in between your levels of attunement before you
carry on to the next level.
Our ego often tries to process and analyze the energy we
sense, feel and know. How do you
respond when you feel it is something that is from your perspective, negative,
uncomfortable or unpleasant? Our
response is to deflect and/or figure out if this is going to cause harm, take
advantage or manipulate us before we lose control. Sound familiar? This is ultimately being at the cause and
effect of this energy and is also looked upon as karma. Alternatively, we can also view this from a
positive emotion in view of a reflection which would be no different.
The world and the universe in its state of natural law will
always present a yin/yang balance. There
is always going to be energy that is opposite. For us as humans, we have to look at the
reflection that is often given to us to learn and evolve; therefore it is
important that we take responsibility of how we react to energy when it is
presenting itself. Emotions are away to
measure this response and often we look at a negative emotion or feeling as a
way to blame outside of ourselves for any of the emotions such as anger, guilt,
envy, jealousy, sadness, fear, rage, just to name a few, that may show up in a
conflict, challenge or confrontation. The
energy in which we feel the response would be called a “trigger” and in turn is
supported in a limited belief system.
Our story of an experience will give the illusion that this
is the same scenario and therefore it will have the same outcome. But we have choice as to how we will respond
and how we will hold ourselves or learn from a particular situation. The key component to observe is, did I have
a trigger and if so, why did I respond that way? The reflection that was given to you in
response to any given situation that opens a trigger is a way to check to see
if your heart is closed or open. We are very capable and amazing human beings
and we can learn how to evolve from those situations that when faced with
negative energy or adversity to take responsibility for our part in the action
that we are engaging in.
Our tip for this month is to “just be” and embrace the abundance of new life from the plant world and the animal world. Can you just be still for 10 minutes out of your day and do not do a thing, not even a thought? The only things you are doing are feeling your heart energy with your hands and infuse green into your heart and body. Send Reiki there and now breathe in through the nose and out the mouth allowing your body to relax. Put in Cho-Ku-Rei into the heart if you are attuned to Reiki. Now connect with Reiki energy as you do the Reiki Mediation from the heart! Make a mental note of any messages or images that come through as you meditate with this energy. As part of helping the physical eat green food, wear the colour green and now that summer is almost around the corner we can simply just surround ourselves with vibrant colours within the parks and forests. Breathe it in and enjoy!
Something for the physical
Now that you have some of your energy balanced another place to focus on the body is our incredible feet! We have chakras on the bottoms of our feet the same as your hands. Taking good care of our feet and hands is important to have ultimate flow for Reiki energy. The feet keep us connected to the earth and our hands allow us to receive and give. Maybe get a foot massage, reflexology or a hot stone massage along with a pedicure. Top it off with a natural foot cream and then just put up your feet and relax. A little Reiki with that and you are in top notch shape! Enjoy!
