Reiki practitioners, as any other holistic healer, are not immune to the fear and insecurity that are prevalent in the world right now. But we are called to a higher standard because of our practice of energy medicine. We are charged with the responsibility of being Light Leaders. We know this when we begin our Reiki training. But how can we, as Reiki facilitators, be of service right now? Particularly when we are also having this human experience of tumultuous change?
First, we need to practice self-care. Practice Reiki on ourselves, and those around us. Meditation is best, but if that is not possible taking at least take 5 minutes per day to have a few minutes of quiet is essential. Diffusing essential oils or smudging, and carrying crystals are great tools to use for protection from toxins and poisons – be they physical or emotional. Create a loving, Reiki field of protection around yourself and your family.
Then we need to embrace the change that is happening. With all the fear, the anger, and disappointment. As with all change, there is a lesson to be learned, a blessing to be bestowed. This is the most difficult part, and the most important. We must be the Light Leaders, and truly lead by stepping over the bridge of what has been to what is, and then reaching out a hand to help others across it.
Finally, we stay calm and we breathe. When the panic starts up – How do I pay my rent? How do we eat? Remember your Source. Seek to stay connected to your divine self. And remember that we have access to a life of abundance and prosperity, regardless of how circumstances may appear.
We can hold the space for healing in our country and in the world. We can do that by sending Distant Reiki to our Global Community. Take time each day to intentionally send healing energy to all of those that suffer with the virus, to all of those who work in the public sector – health professionals, emergency responders, truckers, retail workers, etc., to our leaders and medical experts who are tasked with navigating the world through the crisis.
We can practice Reiki on our families, or those that we live with. Keeping the energy body strong and supported is as important as keeping the physical body safe and protected. Reiki will also provide deep relaxation and stress reduction. It will help to decrease worry and fear.
We can continue to deepen our Reiki practice by exploring the Reiki principles, remembering that “Just for today” has a Universal meaning. Just for today we can be who we are, where we are. And tomorrow we start over, a little bit bigger and a little bit brighter. Now is the time to step further into our Reiki calling, welcoming each occasion where we can be of service.
Practicing self-care is critical right now, as we need to be present and available to do our work. Staying calm and embracing the changes will assist us in getting through this time and allow us to be of support to others. Our world is shifting, and right now our work is to help usher in the changes.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
