Doing what I love and doing it often has become my mantra. It’s a no brainer really, but if like me, you have been more concerned with the intentions of others than your own, it may be time for you to break the cycle.
If you are a regular visitor to my page and enjoy my blog and poetry posts (hugs if you do) you will know that certain things prick my heart, soul, conscience and passion. It’s true that things bother me and no more so than the actions of people around me or more accurately, how in my mind, I perceive their message.
My perceptions are my sensory journey through life. They continue to be a blessing and at times an annoying itch that I am unable to reach. Well, I don’t want to break my nails or have scars on my ancestral olive skin so if my life is to be lived to the fullest, it is essential to learn a few things first.
My creative journey continues with some very exciting projects and collaborations. However, my spiritual journey took a whole new twist after I discovered Reiki. When I am drawn to something, I tend not to ignore it as I believe there is a reason for the path that is presented before me. It is this path that has taught me the most valuable lesson of 2014.
Reiki is about moving into a state of balance and achieving more balance in your life. My biggest achievement this year was studying and becoming a Reiki practitioner and at the very heart of this energy system is intent.
I mentioned intentions at the start of this post and after dedicating Reiki treatments to open and accepting clients, it has become clear to me that intent is powerful when channelled in a way that helps me and others with no other thought than the good of everyone.
There isn’t a day that goes past when the well-being of my friends and family hasn’t been on my mind. But, without realising, I tipped the scales of balance so far to one side catapulting me into outer space. Space travel is a childhood dream of mine but floating like a lost Jedi with zero power and a limp lightsaber isn’t how I pictured it to be.
The good intentions I have for others will continue to be part of my make-up. To change that would mean an uncomfortable shift in my character and that has been tested enough.
Through Reiki, my Reiki Master and the inspiring women I met in a room of tears, laughter and tea it became abundantly clear that the intention to develop myself through ‘Rei’, Universal and ‘Ki’, Life Force Energies is just the beginning.
How is this possible? Simply put, by the words of another master….
