Perfection is always the goal but we are not made to be perfect. The key to a meaningful life is to always be moving forward – no matter what. We strive for perfection, but we are also patient with our growth. We are grateful for our progress but always ready to get to the next level. We are strongest when we are balanced and grounded.
When we do not achieve perfection it is important for us to acknowledge our hard work, forgive ourselves and love ourselves too – no matter what. This is very important. Self-forgiveness is something I work on every day of my life. I need to lighten up on myself and realize how far I have come, rather than how far I need to go. Reiki can be so humbling.
I release all negative thoughts that do not serve me well and replace them with thoughts of hope. It is important that we watch our thoughts and not allow them to run away from us. Everything begins with a single thought. We decide what we will focus on and what we will spend our time with. The choice is ours and nobody else can do this for us.
We choose gratitude or we choose worry. We choose love or we choose anger. The Reiki precepts ground me almost immediately with their timeless wisdom. “Just for today do not be angry, do not worry and be filled with gratitude.” Just for today? I think I can do that.
When we truly accept that all timing is divine, we learn patience at a deeper level. We begin to appreciate every moment of our journey. We also begin to see learning opportunities more clearly as self-critique becomes self-healing instead. Thank God for Reiki. This amazing energy makes everything better – no matter what. The self-healing is something I tend to forget about as I am spending most of my time focusing on others. But, today, yet again, I learned the importance of self-healing.
No matter what life may be throwing at you, Reiki can help you along your way. For me, every day brings new amazement and discoveries with this healing energy that comes from the heart of our creator. Reiki is very powerful with a soothing touch that connects with us on a soul level. Amazingly, it always delivers for our highest good.
Go easy on yourself and take a Reiki break. You deserve it. You’ll thank me for it later. Reiki heals physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Be open to the possibilities and let Reiki do the rest.
