It’s the evening before I begin the next phase of my Reiki journey, and learn Reiki II and receive attunement. The first day will be a review of Reiki I, since I took it with a different teacher Kristin wants to make sure that I’m on the same page as the other student when we get to Reiki II on Sunday.
I just read a new book called The Japanese Art of Reiki by Bronwen and Frans Steine, and I’ve absolutely fallen in love with everything in it. It’s a fabulous book for any new practitioner or even somebody just interested in learning more about how Reiki came to be. There are fabulous exercises that help the practitioner deepen their relationship to Reiki, which help to create greater amounts of Ki within the body. This is such a thoughtful approach, that it’s already increased my awareness as a Reiki I practitioner. A new world will open up for me as a Reiki II as I will then be able to work directly with the symbols in the outstanding meditations included in the book. Each part of my adventure continues to amaze me, especially when I consider the fact that six months ago I didn’t have Reiki in my life at all. As a Gemini, I am soaking up the changes that have been happening with great relish.
Now I understand why people become monks. There are so many things I want to meditate on, I could spend all day in meditation! Being a Reiki Practitioner is my calling, and that was reinforced for me yesterday when I was doing some tarot readings for myself. Starting a new business fills me with trepidation, but my desire to let the Reiki flow is greater than any temporary feelings of anxiety. Each day it gets washed away by Reiki as I continue my practice. I can’t see what the future holds, but I feel the excitement beginning to build again, like Bilbo Baggins said:
It’s a dangerous business, going out your door. If you don’t take to the road, and you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.
