In these days when we need protection from the virus and calm to deal with life’s uncertainty, we need all remember that we have the key to immunity and serenity right in our very hands.
Reiki energy is our all in one solution. During this difficult time we may experience the struggles of COVID – panicked buying, worries about our health, our family, the economy and our personal finances. However, as Reiki practitioners, we can rely on our training and our gifts to bring balance back into our day. We have the choice to heal ourselves, others, and the world around us.
Reiki energy is reliable, it is always available. It is portable – we carry it with us wherever we go. It brings immediate comfort and a sense of calm. It softens the harsh reality we may experience and evens the tempers of those around us. We are the lucky ones. We have a gift, and in many ways, we really have a superpower.
Self-healing can be done anywhere and no one even has to know you are doing it. Call energy into your hands and just lay them on your belly or thighs. This is beneficial to deal with stress and anxiety. It can increase energy levels and reduce fatigue. Relaxing using Reiki can produce a sense of peace and well being under any circumstances. It is readily available tonic to manage fear and dis-ease.
Offer healing either by distance or in-person to family members or to pets that need quieting or relief from mental or physical pain. Reiki can lift us spiritually and allows us to bolster others with our quiet calm and nonreactive attitude. Reiki flows into us, but also changes the demeanor and mind set of those we interact with.
Send Reiki to situations and world leaders to help them make sound decisions that protect us and the earth and its resources. Our spiritual brothers and sisters are making real time change across the planet just by being centered and radiating love and light. We can join them in this effort by directing healing energy to the world and to the collective consciousness. Send Reiki to the animals in the wild for their healing and to the earth, rivers, winds, and oceans to soothe and balance them.
Reiki energy can actively protect you and increase your immunity. You can create a shield of pure white light to surround you with negatively busting energy. Envision yourself as isolated from harm in a bubble of light and love. Continue to do your daily self-healing using your breath and your powerful intention. Breathe deeply into your belly and release your breath fully. Fill the lungs with pure clean air. Find your rhythm and listen to your breath. Inhaling deeply to cleanse the lungs and allow healing energy to flow to your heart center. If you can, get outside and take a brisk walk among the trees or in a garden. Our connection to nature and to Spirit keeps us strong and vibrant.
Use this practice along with following safety guidelines like staying home and keeping a six foot distance from others if you must go out for essentials. Wear a mask if that is comfortable for you, but despite what you may hear on the news, other people are not the enemy. It takes little effort to be kind. A smile from across the room may do wonders to bring cheer and hope to others who are confused and may be feeling very much alone.
This pandemic will pass and we will once again have the freedoms we enjoy. Until then, stay safe and use your Reiki superpower to ride the storm out.
