Just for today, do not worry.
Honor your parents, teachers and elders.
Earn your living honestly.
Show gratitude to all living beings.
As we all walk through this time of change, may it teach us to return to love. In interpreting the five principles of Reiki as they most speak to my heart, I strive to project a positive future, to trust in the unfolding, to be peaceful accepting what is and what is not, to honor all of my teachers in every form they take, both large and small, old and young and everything in between, to live with integrity, to be of service, to be kind and to live a compassionate life. While I am not anywhere near perfect, in every moment I have another opportunity to choose. Like anyone, I can be a victim of my circumstance or I can be a student of it. While life’s challenges can some times feel overwhelming or even paralyzing, it is up to each of us individually as to how we handle the circumstances of life.
May you maintain personal balance and minimize stress. Connect to your inner self, to your loving essence. This is a time to share the love we have inside with others, to reach out, to listen with a compassionate heart, to offer reassurance and to extend love. We can reach out across the ethers, over the internet or over the phone. With constancy and a loving heart, we will be joined by those in fear in a space of union rather than separation. It is a time to do for others what many cannot do for themselves. In this way, we are strengthened and the collective whole is strengthened through the ties of love. We are all connected and we all influenced by each other. Love is to the divine what negativity is to the dark. Love is our nature. Negativity is a cloak we sometimes wear. When we remove it, love remains. If you feel negative thoughts slipping in to your consciousness, allow yourself to be vigilant and to release them through the inspiration of Spirit, through your breath. Call your Spirit home in the present moment and let the negativity simply fall away just as darkness does when light is shined its way. Love is your true essence. Nothing else matters except the beauty of who you truly are. May we all express the radiance we all have within us. The world needs your light and love. Everyone you speak to is affected by your words, your actions, your vibration. Your positive thoughts come from the light. Negative thoughts come from the dark. Positive thoughts leave others feeling good while negative thoughts do not. Tap in to your inner light and radiate that light to others. Put out in to the world what you would like to have reflected back. If you find yourself struggling, reflect back on the Five Principles of Reiki and see if they don’t help you find balance as you allow yourself to move from resistance to acceptance, from attachment to freedom, from apathy to love. May you learn the larger lesson of gratitude for there is nothing a grateful heart can’t have. May you be a container for love and light. In this way, you can transform the world.
