These words came to me after I heard the latest bad news of the day. To Walk in Faith. I googled those words and this is the first thing that popped up –
“If you want to walk by faith, you need to release your fear to God and accept the path He leads you down. This is easier said than done, of course. You may not be able to become completely fearless, but you can be courageous and learn to act according to God’s will even when you are afraid of what lies ahead.”
There was no reference for that one paragraph. It pretty much summed up exactly what I needed to hear today. Earlier in the day, some of the words I saw on my screen included wildfires, nuclear bombs, destruction, devastation, brutality, inhuman and a number of other words that explained how difficult it can be just to live in this day and age. Today’s trips to the grocery store and gas station drove that message home loud and clear. I guess it is all about money. That topic will be saved for another time.
During my last Reiki class I talked about how I had rediscovered Reiki thanks to a pandemic and all of the other stuff happening in the world today. How wise was Dr. Mikao Usui when he asked us not to worry or get angry – just for today? I have also rediscovered the written word and the teachings of Jesus. I feel like I’m in Kindergarten. Eternal words are so powerful and have been shared with us thanks to The Great Ones. Jesus said, “Love One Another” all those years ago. The ageless wisdom of those three words can bring me to my knees as I pray for you and me and everyone and everything that is a part of our hurting world.
Reiki is Love. I call it “love from above.” Reiki is God’s energy, which is the highest form of unconditional Love that we channel to others who are in pain. I find myself saying “just for today” more often these days. Old habits of living in fear and worry are not easy to break. But, with Reiki’s gentle and loving guidance, we feel better when we walk in faith and live in the moment rather than fretting over what could happen. Good things happen all the time. We need to remember that.
We pray for peace on earth with confidence and with clarity of the vision. We’re kind to others. We understand that everything is energy so we keep our positive energy flowing at a very high level – leading with the heart. We lead with Love. The people you touch today are seeing the same images mentioned earlier that you are seeing – regardless of their media of choice.
Be kind and take good care of yourself. If you send Distance Reiki, thank you for helping us heal the world – one soul at a time. If you haven’t been attuned to Reiki, we appreciate your prayers so much. I always tell my students that Distance Reiki is Prayer in Action. Thank you for taking the time out of your busy day to read this article and to pray for peace.
