One of the most common “mistakes” people make when using Reiki is “getting in the way” of the energy by deciding themselves how things “should” turn out.
I should get this job. He/She should love me. I should get a raise (or win the lottery).
Reiki doesn’t really work that way. Instead of having a particular outcome in mind when channelling the energy, we should step aside and let Reiki do its thing. It will work for the highest good.
By focusing on a particular outcome, what we’re really doing is blocking the flow of energy. We should instead just send energy to the situation and be open to anything that may come our way. Whatever it is, it will be for the highest good of all involved.
We may or may not get the job. If we do, it’s because we’re the best person for it, and it’s the best thing that could come to us, considering all circumstances.
They may or may not fall in love with us. If they do, it’s because we’re good matches for each other. If they don’t, it’s probably because the relationship wouldn’t really be what we think.
We may or may not get a raise. If we do, it’s because we deserve it. If we don’t, maybe it’s because we’re meant to do something even greater, and this is the Universe’s way of letting us know.
So, remember: just step aside and let Reiki do its thing.
