I’ve recently been attuned as a Reiki Master again. I had to do it again, because my attempt to do things an easier way backfired, just like everything else I have tried to do the ‘easy way’. It looks easy, but it turns out it is the hard way for one reason or another. Long story short, I tried to avoid extra work, but instead made extra, extra work for myself!
So, I went back and did it the ‘hard way’. What I now have is a stronger connection with Reiki energy and perhaps myself. I understand my ego self on an entirely different level, one that I never imagined possible, which is an amazing blessing. I know I always had to go about it the way I did, or else I wouldn’t have learnt the lessons I have, and I am grateful. What it taught me is that the (my) ego is subtle, manipulative and extremely impatient. I would not have said I was in ego at the time, but it’s clear to me now that I was.
Like I said – Grateful.
As for the Reiki energy. Wow. Just… wow. It seems I am still adjusting to the energy and the last principle, assimilating it on a deeper level. But the results are just amazing.
I have an emotional meltdown about something (see, still assimilating that last principle!), send myself some Reiki while I sleep and the next morning I’m calm and strong enough to tackle the problem head on.
More recently, my car had yet another leaking issue. I sent the situation Reiki and the solution is found before 8 am the next morning – in time for me to get my car before work!
This solution did cost me money, but I was ‘oddly’ ok about it. I did also have to do something about it, it didn’t fix itself, but I went about it calmly and rationally. Best of all, I awoke that morning ready to stand up for myself if they again tried to bullshit me with some crap about leaves and berries in the sun roof’s drainage system. Turns out it was the seals on the windscreen all along, but the point is I was calm and strong enough to stand up for myself if I had to. I was ready to. This is something I have always struggled with as I never wanted to be a nuisance or appear bossy or pushy or bitchy or demanding or any of the countless other reasons strong women are vilified. But, this is another story…
It’s odd that it’s taken me almost 5 years to really understand this, but Reiki works. Not always in the way you expect it to, but it works.
You just have to release expectation and attachment to ‘how’ and ‘when’ and let it do its job.
After all, it is Universal Consciousness and we are simply fallible humans.
