Reiki can help us travel deep inside, connect with our true self, and teach us to listen from our hearts. Reiki assists us in reflecting on our lives in a sincere way that can bring us fresh ideas to manifest our dreams and create new solutions to needed changes.
However, often when we reflect on our lives we use our minds instead of our heart, and see ourselves according to the expectations of others, or our culture. We make long lists of all that we have not accomplished or we look at the ways we “should” be, and we make choices that are not in alignment with our real hopes and dreams. This can block us from feeling peaceful, successful, and finding meaning in our daily life.
Using Reiki and a technique called automatic writing; the following exercise can demonstrate how we view ourselves when we listen to our minds, and the difference of how we view ourselves when we listen to our hearts. Automatic writing is simply writing without evaluation. Try not to think about grammar or writing correctly. Just put your pen to the paper and let it flow.
Reiki is always available to assist us in our daily lives. Reiki illuminates the path before us so we can hear our own truth, make choices from our heart, and create the life of our dreams.
I learned of this technique in Jan Engels-Smith’s Basic Journey class. www.lightsong.net.
