With people, healing and new growth may not be so visible.
We have to be steady and mindful.
Steady enough to practice daily self-treatment. Mindful enough to notice spaciousness as it opens within us.
In spaciousness lies the possibility of choice where before there was only reaction. And we know where reaction takes us…
The next time you feel cramped, reach for self-practice. As your awareness becomes spacious, bring the Reiki Precepts to mind.
Do not worry,
Do not anger.
Be kind to others.*
Engaging the Precepts invites new understanding. Reflecting on them clarifies whether to take action in this moment, or refrain from acting.
With steady, mindful practice, we grow true happiness.
