Just for today, do not anger
Have you ever tried meditating when your angry? It’s impossible to do. Same goes for doing Reiki, which is why this precept is so very important to understand and practice. We are all human, and some days every little thing gets on your nerves. Just think about that, an irritation is attaching itself to you’re sensitive nerves, so upset feeling festers on and doesn’t dissipate on it’s own. But you know what? You are in charge of your emotions, not the other way around! Now you can really put your Reiki to practice and heal yourself of anger and irritation.
Find a place to be quite and start doing a calming breath by inhaling for two counts, and exhaling for four counts. Continue this breathing and start giving yourself Reiki to your Ajna (third eye) and Visuddha (throat) chakras. It helps me to say an affirmation of forgiveness of myself and all others, as you are releasing the anger with your words, allowing Reiki to do it’s thing and flow in with calming love. Even if you are not attuned to Reiki, you can do this exercise and ask the healing energy of the universe to flow through you.
