When we learn to accept that which has been given or bestowed upon us -
a soothing process of healing begins to unfold.
The act of acceptance involves a form of surrendering or letting go of old thought patterns and energetic fields.
When we accept a circumstance we surrender our need to control the outcome.
When we accept a person for all their shortcomings and faults - we relinquish our need to control or give judgement.
With acceptance comes understanding...
Reiki teaches us to accept everything we are given: both good and bad.
I recently had an experience with a client who had encountered a spiritual charlatan.
For those who unfamiliar with the term
I recommend visiting the link below:
They had a bad session with this individual which led to more stress and strain on the body.
Which ultimately led to their energy being drained by the priest or guru.
To make a long story short, after our Reiki session,
I offered the client a different perspective.
Any relationship we enter into is an exchange of energy.
The good ones confirm our loving nature and respect for ourselves and the bad ones challenge and teach us how to value our own self worth.
Accepting our roles in every relationship will allow for further healing on all sides of the spectrum.
Our disease or illness can also be a gift if we learn to accept what it has to teach us.
This can be quite a difficult task for one to accept something as terminal as cancer or a mental disorder to valuable teachers.
But if we have faith to put into practice our ability to accept our worst conditions then our energy in motion such as stress or self destruction, gently releases itself from our field.
So just for today Accept everything life brings you..
Even the negative circumstances since they also serve us on our journey towards healing.
The Fear of Reiki has been known to exist throughout the mainstream culture of Japan and Okinawa.
For some western Religious groups - Reiki is viewed as some kind of satanic ritual..
Most people cancel their session at the last minute due to other engagements or emergencies. However, some fail to follow through with attending their Reiki session because of something else entirely.
I have learned from admission of some of my clients that it is because of : FEAR.
What are they afraid of? I'd wonder..
Perhaps it's the ambiguity and misperceptions of Reiki in general, or maybe fear of judgement.
Or their rationale that the process doesn't work or is a waste of time..
If any of the above resonates with you, than I can assure you that fear of the unknown is understandable after all it is part of our instinctual nature to avoid what we don't understand.
Our logical mind cannot fathom the unseen. However whether or not one chooses to believe in Energy and its ability to convert, doesn't refrain it from naturally occurring.
Science proves that Energy is all around us and its convergence is happening on both a subatomic and cellular level.
However some are more keen and sensitive to the energy that is constantly circulating through all living things.
And that is what Reiki teaches, to be more mindful, more aware of what is happening within and around you.
To use your senses and take notice,
To be fully present in your journey towards healing, replenishing and maintaining balance....
So just for today, learn to acknowledge and understand what your fears are teaching you.
Also remember that fear comes in many forms but ultimately they are an obstacle or barrier that separates you from receiving your greatest gift:
