One of the most beautiful gifts that Reiki offers us is a guideline for Self-Mastery, a road map to life if you will.
Each principle offers many gifts for you as you embrace them and gently unwrap them, you will soon begin to see the Truth behind each one.
Far too often, we allow life to happen “to us.”
Living in the moment…
When this happens it means that we are either living in the past or in the future. If you think about what this means, you will discover that by living in the past, you have probably become “stuck” and filled with remorse, regret or anger about an event, happening or circumstance which you have attached some sort of negative emotion to.
If you are living in the future you are living constantly from a place of doubt, worry or fear. Your thoughts are always focused upon “when this happens, I’ll be happy,” or “if I could do this, then that will happen.”
Often times, it can become easy to slip into wishful thinking — therefore allowing your Self to get trapped within the rollercoaster of life’s wild ride.
There is a difference between wishful thinking and daydreaming, so let’s not get the two confused. Daydreaming is an important factor when it comes to creating. Daydreaming allows you to move into the state of imagination.
Without imagination, how can you be a conscious co-creator in your life?
How can you become the Master of your creations?
And, how can you begin to expect miracles to appear?
Self mastery through Reiki
How does all of this tie into self-mastery using the Reiki principles?
These principles teach you how to live in the NOW. To live in each moment! Think about this…. Living in the moment takes conscious training.
Each and every thought you have in the moment, now has become a part of your past!!… why is it important to live in the moment? It is important because the NOW is all you have! In the moment is where you create.
They say that your past creates your future, but how is your past created?
Every thought you have in the moment, is only in the moment for that moment and after that moment has past, that thought now becomes a part of your past…phew, did you follow along with that?
Five Reiki principles
The Reiki Principles ARE at the heart and soul of Reiki. If you can learn to master these principles, you will begin to becoming the Master of Self.
The Five Reiki Principles are:
I – Just for today, I will be free of anger.
II – Just for today, I will be free from worry.
III – Just for today, I will be filled with gratitude.
IV – Just for today, I will be free of judgments towards Self and others.
V- Just for today, I will love all things Unconditionally.
As you move through each of these Principles and embrace the impact they will have upon your life, it is important to remember to be kind to your Self, Honor and Cherish your Self as you allow your Soul and Higher Self to guide you through this final release as you move to embracing All That Is.
Allowing the Principles to serve as a road map for you allows to see where you are and where you desire to be.
I challenge you here today, do an honest evaluation of your life, where are you balanced, where are you not?
Be honest with your Self here, no one is judging you. The more open and honest you can be, the more you will see what areas of your life are out of balance and where healing is raising it’s hand for you to see…..
Where will your road map take you?
