Why do we suffer? Do we suffer? Does suffering exist at all? The answer to all of these is ingrained within us. Any situation that causes pain or distress leads to acute suffering. Suffering and anger are relative when it comes to mental illness. Suffering is a mode that we choose to express our worry or anxiety.
There is no or actual mental suffering that exits in reality. Let’s keep it simple and leave aside the physical pain due to diseases and the like. Taking alone the mental illness will be dealt here. We live to experience life and actually have no idea, as to what events or instances we would witness. It could be something the way we wanted and we tend to embrace it and call it a good one. Whereas, there could be a situation that turnout otherwise. Now this is what we call a bad or a disheartening one. How do we overcome this? The answer is a simple “ACCEPTANCE”, but it takes a lot of seasoning of the mind to gain such an attribute or rather the practice of Reiki will give or perhaps create such an attribute of acceptance within oneself.
Accepting the situation and living in reality has a long way to a successful, peaceful, and a meaningful life by creating a stable and a powerful existence. How do we work our way to acceptance?
We often hear people say “ hey move on’, that’s the way it is, or that’s life and so on so forth. We in such vulnerable situation will feel hurt to hear such statements. In an ideal situation we can actually move on and work our way forward by spending some time to factually understand the event. Ask the below questions to yourself:
- What is the actual situation?
- What exactly happened or which incident made you feel provoked?
- What makes you feel otherwise?
- What did you expect of this situation?
- Why did it not turn out the way you thought or wanted?
- What was your part to such a result?
- What implications you might have (had) being in this situation?
- How better this situation would have changed if not for such results?
When you split the issues of a particular incident it is useful to find a lot more information or will understand the basis in its true sense.
Now your perception changes, and you will literally begin to appreciate that tiny expression of gratitude, feel the other side of the story or a sensible statement that was uttered by the counter-part involved in the situation. At last, when you realise it is not for your mistake that lead to the result, you are at ease and sure will feel the comfort of doing to the best of your ability for a better outcome. This eventually will lead to acceptance of reality.
Use Reiki to heal every incident or analysis of the situation and also to your counter-part who actually hurt or had caused a discomfort to you. Request them to accept your love and peace. You may use symbols like Cho Ku Rei, Sei He Ki and Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen, three times and at the end of the session imagine that you hug each other and say to yourself that you will have an enduring relationship with them and have no loose ends to any problems or misunderstandings. Also tell yourself that you feel good about the situation and it’s for the highest good. If you’re unable to imagine a virtual hug there is always a cute teddy, which you can use for the Reiki session.
Try it; this is an amazing way to make yourself stronger. The truth is everybody is going to give you some experience in life, which we can’t control but what we can control is our own ability of a clear and a strong mind that paves way to joy. Being punished by anger or mental illness is undesirable; the hug therapy will certainly evacuate such unpleasant feeling. We become what we think; so let your thoughts devolve with positive energy as it is better to work out on our own salvation.
With love and light
