Being Persistent and Consistent with Self-Care Can Help You Create a Better Life for Yourself and Those Around You


When you live with your head and your heart in alignment, your life can really unfold. Sometimes, we logically know that something is good for us, but we don’t want to put in the hard work to do it. Sometimes, we know in our hearts that something is the right thing to do, but we might not know how to implement the idea. I know I want to teach reiki to as many people as I can because I know spending time giving reiki to myself and others has helped me to let go of things that no longer serve my highest purpose and to welcome the new. The cool thing is that it can help each person become their highest self. We are all unique so your best self will be different than others. Since we all have different interests and natural talents, the world would benefit from you taking time to give yourself reiki. Working with the divine light or universal life energy that is reiki, helped me to live a more happy and fulfilled life. I know I can see changes in those around me and I know I have felt the change myself. My perspective has shifted to a more loving mindset and I have been able to move past perceived “blocks”.


Reiki helps you to be a conduit for the divine light which helps with whatever you are praying about. Reiki doesn’t have a religious affiliation, but I say praying because that is how I think about it. Having a difficult time with someone? Reiki can help you to be more compassionate and if you know level 2, you can channel distance reiki to that other person. In spiritual truth, we are all one; so when you help someone else you are helping us all including yourself. When you use reiki on a daily basis especially in combination with positive affirmations and prayer, you will be amazed. I know I have been amazed. Reiki, when used daily, can help you to heal yourself and that is a beautiful place to start to make the world a better place! When you are consistent in using reiki for 20 minutes a day and persistent with your practice, you can brave push through any seeming barriers. If you still feel blocked, have a session from another reiki practitioner. Also, there are plenty of free short reiki videos on youtube and I hope to add my own to that collection soon.


Let yourself be amazed at the beauty of your life changing for the better and accept it as truth. For example, I had a meeting with some dear church friends of mine on Tuesday. We only meet once a month so it is very important to me that I am able to attend and spend prayerful time with my friends. Late last week, my doctor’s office had me reschedule an appointment since my physician would be out of town. Since I was also going on a trip to Key West with my mom and sister (don’t worry my husband is home to take care of the cats), Tuesday evening was the only day that worked with my work schedule. I absolutely love my primary care physician. He has a heart of gold and he takes his time with each patient. I can tell that he truly cares about his patients. Since he does take his time with each patient, he can run behind schedule. Normally, I don’t mind, because his level of care is worth the wait so I bring a book, talk with other people in the waiting room, or watch the HGTV they have on in the waiting room. Since my meeting was the same evening, I prayed so hard and asked God for a miracle if need be. I prayed for all the angels to be with my doctor throughout the day to help him stay running on schedule. I prayed that I would be able to walk into the office and be seen immediately. And do you know what? I was! I walked into the doctor’s office and their was no one else in the waiting room. I am not going to lie, I was shocked. I immediately prayed prayers of gratitude. What might take hours other days, took less than thirty minutes. So pray, channels lot of reiki to the situation and the people involved, then completely put the situation in God’s hands. In this example, things worked out like I hoped and I even arrived early to my meeting. God can actually protect us in ways that seem illogical to us, but we are not always seeing the full picture. So if things don’t work out how you imagined, know that God has your best at heart. I know I had an experience that seemed illogical and it saved me from being in a car accident. I literally watched someone else get rear-ended exactly where my car would have been, but that is a story for another time.


Again, I would like to mention the power of positive affirmations to helping break through any perceived or actual barriers. Positive affirmations remind me of the thought “I think I can, I think I can, I think I can” from the children’s classic, The Little Engine that Could … except in a grown up context. I would change “I think I can” to “I know I can” or simply “I do (fill in the blank)”. In case you missed this post, I talked about reading one book that is full of positive affirmations in my post, Willing to Change. Please check it out and Contact me to set up your own personal reiki session, either in person or distance reiki. Please share this post with a friend or a family member so we can help spread love and light to the world. Peace be with you!
