Motivate Yourself to Practise Reiki Everyday
The root cause of this widespread problem in the Reiki community is a lack of understanding about how Reiki works.
Reiki is not a magic pill. It is a way of life. Why do we brush our teeth and take a shower? We don’t need a reason to brush and shower. So is it with Reiki. We do not practise Reiki because we want to witness miracles every day. We practise it because it is meant to be practised every day. A Reiki self healing is like a shower for the energy body.
The occurrence of miracles is a by product of Reiki practice and not the goal. Soul mates may not appear within a week of practice. Illnesses do not disappear with one healing session. And life does not transform into an unbelievable miracle overnight. A lot of people come into Reiki practice with such hopes and tend to believe that Reiki will solve all their problems in a jiffy. However, it is not Reiki’s job to create miracles for us. It is our job. If this is not understood, people lose the will to practise. Even when someone says they cannot find the time to practise, the underlying reason is that Reiki did not live up to their misconstrued expectations. If Reiki could indeed create miracles everyday while we sat back and did nothing, even the busiest and laziest among us would find the time and energy to practise!
This is not to discount the blessings that Reiki brings us. Reiki does bring us amazing blessings. It can help us find our soul mates, heal our illnesses and transform our difficulties into opportunities. But notice the wording: Reiki can help US. We need to do our homework too, which means we take responsibility for our lives. And the moment we take responsibility, Reiki helps us create miraculous and purposeful lives. It does this by helping us shake off toxic energies and stepping up our vibration. When our energies are clean and pure, we experience more power and freedom. We become masters of our destinies. Expecting Reiki to do all the work, while we sit back and relax, just does not help.
The best way to allow Reiki to help us is to practise daily self healing. A small shift in perspective will help us see that daily self healing is not such a difficult task after all. We do not have to fast or do penance. We are not required to do complicated rituals or difficult meditation practices. All that is required is that we relax for about forty minutes and bask in a cocoon of warm healing energy (with soothing music and aromatic incense if you please). It is like indulging in a divine spa therapy in the comfort of home every day! How much easier can things get? Think about it.
