Tonight we had the Rune Study Group at Eye of Horus, and we did a ritual for prosperity using Fehu and Uruz from Taking Up the Runes by Diana Paxson. It was just myself and one other person. She just happens to be a Reiki Master but has done nothing with Reiki since her Reiki III class. One of my art collectors mentioned that she too used to be a Reiki Master when I offered to send some healing energy her way, note the past tense there. For me to hear that, on Day 12 since receiving my Reiki I attunements, it sounds so alien to me. How can you not use Reiki: consciously, caringly, and for the good of all those around you, as often as possible? They say that Reiki comes to people in the way that they need it, and Diane Stein in Essential Reiki states that Reiki III is for people who want to be teachers only, but she also feels that attunements should be given to more people because of the state of our planet and it’s people. When you compare 2007 to say 1507, we’ve got it pretty good. I am still so gung-ho about being a Reiki Practitioner that it’s hard for me to understand why someone would take Reiki who doesn’t want the same thing. But to each her own. Here is part of the invocation we used, straight from the book:
Hail to thee Day, and Day’s bright boy,
Hail to the Night and Her daughter’s joy.
With eyes that bless us may you see
And grant to those here, victory.
The goddesses and gods we call
And holy earth, who gives to all-
Give us here wise words and weal,
And in this life, the hands that heal!
(“Sigdrifumal”:2, freely translated)
Hmmmmm…”hands that heal”…is that just a coincidence? Or is it my calling reinforcing itself. I was just looking to increase my prosperity and look what pops up. Serendipity that’s what!
