Article by Reiki Master Sunetra Dasgupta
You gotta go and get angry at all of my honesty
You know I try but I don’t do too well with apologies
I hope I don’t run out of time. Could someone call a referee?
‘Cause I just need one more shot at forgiveness
I know you know that I made those mistakes maybe once or twice
And by once or twice I mean maybe a couple of hundred times
So let me, oh, let me redeem, oh, redeem, oh, myself tonight
‘Cause I just need one more shot, second chances
Is it too late now to say sorry?
Hello, Beautiful Souls (especially millennials)! If you are wondering why I am quoting Justin Beiber song in my article, it’s because he inspired me to write this article! Music and Reiki can make you do so much! (Good of course!)
So let me share a small Apologies Ritual with all of you.
Being a Reiki practitioner we all are being medium to a wonderful modality, it helps us understand energies and situations in such a wonderful manner. But at the end of the day, we are humans, we are predominantly governed by our 3rd dimension energies and emotions.
As a practitioner, we every day strive to be a better person than what we were yesterday (As per Reiki we take only one day at a time, Just for today…..). But sometimes we say things or do things intentionally or unintentionally which may have hurt others, or insulted someone, or its one of those days when we are irritated. We disrespect Reiki too by not following the ethics or principles (I know I am guilty of that!). But Reiki being such a compassionate energy, it forgives our misdeeds, and we are blissfully unaware of it, carrying on with our work and striving to make the world a better place.
It is always a good idea to one day in a week or every day before sleeping (depends on you), sit in front of your altar, and apologies to the energies and deities for hurting them consciously or unconsciously, or if someone has come to you or some aura you have interacted with, who may have criticized the energies or said something about your practice. The energies are more sensitive than we think!
- Clean the area with sage or Reiki symbols
- Ground and shield yourself
- Make a shift Reiki altar, or decorate your altar with a new cloth (preferably purple, as purple is the color of Reiki), flowers and offer them something to eat
- Say attitude of gratitude
- Light a diya or a candle (any color candle will do)
- Apologies to the universe and everyone together or do it individually. I shall share the prayer with you. Please feel free to change the wordings and use it with whatever you resonate with.
“Dear Universe and Reiki,
I Thank you for being in my life, and choosing me as medium,
I hope I can be a service to humanity, and do justice to the practice,
I apologize if I have committed any mistake or wrongdoing knowingly, unknowingly, consciously or unconsciously,
I seek forgiveness from the 3 founding members of Reiki, Dr. Mikao Usui, Dr. Chujiro Hayashi and Mrs. Hawayo Takata for all the glitches I have made in the practice,
I seek forgiveness from Mother Earth, Father God, Ascended Masters, Guides, Angels, Archangels and my fellow souls for all my wrongdoings,
I seek forgiveness from my higher self and soul if I have not listened to you or not paid heed to your advice,
I shall strive to be better,
This is the prayer which I use, and I have seen a lot of changes in my life since I have started this ritual. I do it once a week (owing to my laziness), and I have made a better sync with the energies. I hope you liked this article and shall give this method a try.
Blessed Be <3
