Taking time to assess what you need to let go of is not, I don’t think, as difficult as the steps to actually letting go.
Life can become mired in old ways of doing things or holding onto items because you’ve had them for years, in other words, stagnation. Through following old beliefs or staying in relationships that no longer serve you, the journey forward becomes stuck. To recognize and assess what you need to let go of is a journey in itself. To take the steps to actually let go can be scary.
I had a lesson taught to me recently that encouraged me to practice what I teach. The experience showed me my own vulnerability and honestly, it wasn’t comfortable.
Some months ago I received a Message Request on a business Facebook page, from a person who was seeking another Teresa regarding an upcoming High School reunion. I didn’t know the person messaging me and responded that the Teresa they were searching for wasn’t me. Apparently they didn't receive that message.
There is a lot of fast paced, hustle bustle activities in our daily lives. Reiki should not be one of them.
Lately I've noticed that people are in a hurry with their Reiki sessions, especially those that are providing one. I was discussing this with a colleague yesterday and she felt that in part it was that people, Reiki practitioners included, are often ungrounded, living in their heads and not taking time to get into their bodies and quiet their busy minds before engaging with others or with energy work. I think that she is on to something.
Here is the part 2 that was promised in the January Enewsletter to my blog about Reiki, Intention Setting & the New Year.
Setting intention doesn't have to be a New Years event but can happen at any time. The reason that I focused on the New Year was because of Mercury being retrograde at the start of 2023...a perfect time for letting go!
Reiki = Universal Life Force Energy
Intentions = what you consciously intend to accomplish or manifest into your life. What you plan to create with energy and attention.
All Universal action begins with your intention.
When you are experiencing long term, unrelenting and constant stress the result can be what is called "Burn Out". Burnout is a state of complete physical, mental and emotional exhaustion.
~ even if you haven't had Covid-19.
I have noticed that the pandemic we are in, and have been for three years, has shown visible symptoms in every client that I've seen through that time. Regardless of occupation, age, beliefs, etc. many are exhibiting the symptoms of PTSD and Chronic Stress. Yes, it is more intense with those clients in Healthcare and the Teaching professions, however it has been obvious in everyone.
A Reiki practitioner and teacher, this short clip will introduce you to Reiki, what it is, what to expect during a session and what to expect from classes. Below the video are links to more information.
The "sigh" is something I wait for, and eventually, in every holistic session, it comes.
That is when I know that a client has given over to allowing the holistic session to work with them on all levels (mind, body and spirit)
The human sigh, while often a spontaneous occurrence, conveys a wide range of emotions and has an abundance of holistically healthy benefits. Our breathe impacts our emotional and physical state and the sigh can encourage a state of balance.
I created a Gift Guide for suggestions of what can go with one of our Healthy Session Gift Certificates. You can put a Massage Therapy Gift Certificate in a basket of Bathsalts and Chocolate, wrap a Reiki Gift Certificate around a candle, hide a Reflexology Gift Certificate inside a pair of socks... lots of ideas
