Over the past few years I have been working on my inner self instead of focusing too much on the materialistic side of life.
I discovered mindfulness which helped me deal with my physical pain which turns out was brought on by my mental chatter which I was unaware of!.go figure!!
Meditation became part of my life, and from here my consciousness grew. It isn’t easy in this world to be conscious, empathetic and happy. With so much going on in the world that seems so wrong it can get very easy to be fearful of everything. I have two kids and practicing mindfulness in the beginning made me realise that everything I say and do impacts there life. Then I went on to study neuroscience and wow..did that bring more fear into my life. From before birth to 6 those tiny beautiful children are being programmed by mainly…ME…..Ahhhhhh seriously, if I didn’t find life difficult before I bloody well do now!!
It was then I really put all my effort into becoming a better version of Me.
I stopped reading News, I no longer scroll through the newsfeeds on social media.
I listen to motivational speeches every day, meditate, yoga and keep practicing being present, Even if it’s just to listen to which ever kid is having a tantrum over how I cut their sandwiches.
Being happy I feel is a skill especially after living life with so much fear. Knowing that the brain was just doing its job trying to protect me from the dangers that lurk in the supermarket!! Knowing now I can connect new neural pathways in my brain by thinking different thoughts and repeating these to create better emotions.
I’m happy I’m happy I’m happy……doesn’t quite work..but over time…and creating the feeling of happiness inside whilst meditating each day is better and better. Namaste and happy days.
I have been practicing Reiki for 10 years and use Reiki in my daily life. I use reiki on my family/pets/food/plants and of course myself. I find it gives me a sense of being present and when practiced daily you too will find the wonderful benefits of this calming treatment.
My own personal experience with Reiki has been my own unique journey and yours will be too. Reiki came into my life when I needed it the most, when I was experiencing anxiety and panick attacks
Looking back on my journey now I am so thankful that I had experienced these anxieties within my past as it is a part of my journey. Reiki and Mindfulness Meditation has made me face myself, my fears and emotions that I buried inside my subconscious mind. During my time with reiki I have gone through many emotions myself and discovered a lot about the way my mind works.
I felt a fake at times as I was experiencing anxiety and I was the one trying to help people. This lead me to delve a lot deeper into how the mind works (chimp paradox- mind management book – highly recommend this one if you experience negative emotions surfacing) along with daily practice of reiki and meditation.
You don’t need to have health problems to be a great Reiki Master but what I will tell you is that throughout your own life’s journey with Reiki you will experience many different emotions and revelations within yourself.
Reiki is not just a course you do then you get a certificate and that’s you a Reiki Master. This is a lifelong commitment that you make to yourself to fully immerse yourself into this.
I must admit I didn’t understand this at all when I did my Reiki one and Two. I thought it was just a nice course I could do to help myself and get money from people to help them.
It is so much more than this. It is a way of life, a daily practice, it really does make you a better person if you truly want to be. Everyone wants to grow both emotionally, physically and spiritually and with Reiki you will grow in all areas of your life.
