Not quite as "quippy" as my husband, but I figured "Hey, everybody else is doing it" and "Yes, mom, I would jump off a bridge. . . "

Reiki Revisited . . .
Completing the education portion of this journey on Saturday
was monumental for me. Truth be told, I really didn't want to do it. I
wanted to sit back and rest assured that I had learned everything I
needed to learn in Reiki 1 and 2 and have a relaxing and uneventful
Saturday. Even after I paid for the class in full, I was considering
going back and asking for a refund. I was not "feeling it". Even
Saturday, I woke up late and wanted to just blow it off. I am so very
glad I did not. I am certain that I was put in that place for a reason
and I feel as though I grew exponentially in my understanding of Reiki
and in my place in this journey.
We focused more on intuition in this class and it really struck a
cord with me. The possibility of providing just what the client needs
at the appropriate time and place, even if they don't know what it is,
is a heady proposition. It really secured in me that I am merely a
vessel for the energy to flow through. It reminded me that there is a
far greater force at work through me and I am simply the conduit who is
willing and open to being used. That concept was what drives me to use
this ability for good. The fact that I don't have to know what is
needed, I just simply have to be present and willing. While I initiate
the contact by welcoming God to use me, I really just have to sit back
and allow Him to provide and perform.
The other piece of that puzzle for me is the LOVE. The acceptance of
what it is to be obedient to a higher power and be that part of the
puzzle is overwhelmingly peaceful. I am called to love. I am called to
accept. I am called to provide kindness and positivity in all areas of
my life. Opening that part of me has been a long journey over the past
few years. It has been one that has taught me to let go of my
assumptions, my preconceived notions and my judgements. It has given me
the understanding that I have not walked in the shoes of others. I
have no idea where their journeys have taken them and how they have
reached the point where they are today. I cannot judge their path or
their conclusions. I can simply accept and love that they are where
they are at this given moment. It is my job to love. I may not agree,
but that does not stop the love. I can see that the journey I have been
a part of for these past few years, has been leading up to my Reiki
training. The time is now to begin putting into action what has been
resonating within my soul during this time.
Reiki has given me the instrument in allowing that love to feel real
to others. As I call on the God of the universe to work through me and
for the greater good of the person in front of me, I am showing that
love in corporal form. I am the avenue for energy filled with love and
acceptance. The force of that love is healing and benefiting another
human being. That, my friends, is powerful and something I am humbled
to be a part of. I am blessed to be given the ability to show that love
in such a tangible way.
