Reiki has been a literal life saver/life changer for me.
8 years ago, my son Ryan chose to transition. He was adopted at 4 days old, and had a very challenging life. He ultimately was diagnosed with bipolar schizophrenia. We were deeply spiritually connected. He helped me learn in the deepest way the lessons of Unconditional Love and acceptance. My world was literally turned upside down.
I distinctly remember walking into my Reiki Room very soon after and the Reiki Healing Principles coming to me face to face. They “spoke” to me and said “Are these just words, or are you really going to choose to live by these?” I knew in that moment that I had a choice whether to really live or just exist. Society would have given me every excuse to be a Victim, but that was not my choice. It also came to me that I would be offering a Workshop entitled “From Grief to Gratitude”. It took me 4 years to be ready, and I have now shared that workshop 3 times. Reiki helped me move forwards in a Healthy, Positive, Open-Hearted way, and use my personal experience to help others.
I Love that Reiki is simple. It is easy to learn. It is a way to choose to BE in the world, living consciously aware of the energy of your thoughts, words and attitudes. I Love that I don’t need to (or get to) decide what happens in Reiki. It is always for the Highest Good and Greatest Joy in every moment. I Love that it is empowering, so you always have something Positive and Loving to offer in every situation whether it is about you, across the world, or even in another time. I Love that there is no competition, so everyone ends up with the exact right teacher and Healer for them, based on resonation.
I absolutely Love sharing Reiki with others with my hands, my words, and my entire BEing. Reiki is Unconditional, non-judgmental Love. A Gift. Namaste ‘
I was recently Honored to be the speaker at a Networking Gathering for Natural Awakenings magazine. I shared my story of gradually transitioning from Physical Therapist to full time Reiki Master/Teacher. I shared the process of envisioning , manifesting and creating ReikiSpace & Learning Place. I talked about my Heart Centered, Service first Business philosophy. They also wanted to hear how I share about Reiki with my words keeping it grounded and relatable to various audiences.
What I said next really surprised them ~ “I don’t DO Reiki!” After a few moments I added “I LIVE Reiki!”. I am consciously aware of the Energy of every word, thought, emotion and attitude and how it affects me, others and the world. I AM Reiki, I exude Reiki. I Trust that when I enter a space radiating Light, that anything less than Light will either be Healed by the Light, or will go away.
Living by the Reiki Healing Principles is about living in total Integrity, allowing myself to fully experience every emotion, and then CHOOSING to return to my place of Peace. I allowed them to feel how quickly they can shift their energy by closing their eyes, consciously breathing in Light, Love and Healing Energy, and allowing themselves to be filled to overflowing. Everyone can do this, and choose Love instead of fear.
This is the path of a Reiki Master. BEing of Service. Revealing more and more of our True Selves for the Highest Good of all. Namaste’.
With Love, Joy and Gratitude, Rickie
Many publications this time of year focus on “New Year- New You” themes. The Truth is we need to clear away what is blocking or hiding the Perfect YOU that is already and always there! Reveal the Truth of who you really are under the fears, the old messages that no longer serve you, the protection that you’ve held onto, but no longer really need….We are Perfectly Imperfect Divinity Learning, Growing, and Shifting as we gain Wisdom and Clarity. The Never-ending Journey – there is no “There”…..
Here are my Loving Intentions for all:
May you REMEMBER what you Love, what Sparks you, and brings you endless, timeless Joy. Consciously Create more time for that in your life.
May you be Gentle with yourself as you step forwards in a new direction and try a new way.
May you Forgive yourself and others for the sake of Peace.
May you remember that we are all doing the Best that we can with the Knowledge, Wisdom and Experiences we bring to this moment. This will allow you to see with the eyes of Compassion
May you know how precious your Energy is, and Choose Loving and Peaceful speech, thoughts and attitudes every day. May you attract the same.
May you remember that life’s challenging people and situations are a GIFT to help you learn and move forwards in ways that you wouldn’t have chosen on your own.
May you find the Perfect Balance of Quiet Introspection, Service, Connection, Laughter and PLAY . Enjoy this Amazing and Interesting Ride!
Celebrating your Revelation of More YOU!
I have a reputation for my Positive, Inspiring messages on Facebook. I only post and Like messages that I fully resonate with. I Know that every thought, word, attitude and emotion carries Energy, and I choose to help raise the Vibration, and bring more Light into the world.
This week, I decided to try something Fun! I posted the following:
“Let’s create a LOVE story! Each add one line using Positive, Loving words, thoughts, emotions, and keep the story going…..
Once upon a time…..”
Here is the Beautiful story that unfolded, one line at a time. I Loved it so much that I wanted to share it with you.
“Once upon a time there lived a gentle and spiritual couple who wanted to change the world, and they loved dancing! They opened their home to those seeking answers and a warm meal, and filled their world with laughter and love. Today they will welcome a beautiful baby boy who will help so many more people feel the love around him. They decided to name him Robert! He will help bring Peace to the world and conquer fear from the heart. He will inspire unconditional love and bring happiness to all around him.
The years flew by, and their son grew into a warm and caring young man. He met a girl. She was gentle and kind, and brought Grace and ease. She built them a house, and baked a cherry pie for dinner. She was a Loving, generous woman adding such joy to the family. She was filled with love and light. Of course, they will soon be gifted with Reiki attunements so they can continue to spread light and love across the world. Their positive energy waves did not ebb and flow, but continued on in a continuous stream which flowed to the North, South, East and West bringing a sense of connection to all things, living and seemingly inanimate; bringing Unconditional love for all who were in sorrow, anger, poverty,depression, and oppression. Then the word came…LOVE! They set out to spread it to all over the paths of everyone around them. And Love is all there is!” The End…
Didn’t my Facebook friends do a Wonderful job! Feel free to “Like” my Reiki By Rickie page at www.facebook.com/reikispace if you could use some more Positive reminders to keep your spirits raised.
Much Love and Joy, Rickie
