Beautiful Gifts of Being A Reiki Practitioner

Article by Justine Melton

Like anyone else as a Reiki Practitioner you have good and bad days. As someone who helps others to heal a lot of times your days are spent hearing or feeling a lot of issues from others. While we help balance and heal these lower energies to that of health and positivity for clients sometimes it can still take a toll on us. After a long, busy chaotic day where I myself felt like I needed to be a client instead of the practitioner I sat down and thought what am I doing? How am I giving amazing, healing, beneficial advice to others and not following it myself? I decided to do a guided meditation to center myself, destress and then wrote the following list as a pick me up. I hope that some of you will be able to relate and that you may feel a burst of positivity from it as well. It is so easy to forget how lucky and special we are as Reiki Practitioners.
