A funny thing happened the other day at my day job. We all were invited into a town hall meeting which involved learning how the company was positioning itself for the future. Long story short, 100 people found out that by March 2010 we would all be out of a job. The consolidation and outsourcing of our current positions will help the company through these tough economic times. Management is out of luck too, and they got the news on April 1st.
So what’s a Reiki Artist to do? Why more Reiki of course! Friday I will definitely be stopping by Eye of Horus for the Reiki Clinic and getting some good juju there. One of the bolts holding together a leg on my Reiki table was stripped, but husband David swung by the hardware store and got me a new one that works perfectly. Now that I know my table isn’t going to collapse underneath anyone, including myself, I’m much more confident in using it more often.
I’m feeling a little weirded out over the whole situation, as I had Definite Plans about how the next few years were supposed to go. This didn’t involve job hunting at all. What it did involve was figuring out what I really want and taking action to get it. It’s so easy to keep on daydreaming, but the kick in the pants is what really gets you out the door and exploring the terrain and what it has to offer.
I got my pants kicked this week, now it’s just down to the business of immersing myself in my Reiki practice, for myself and others. Bonus! I get to road test how well it works during a layoff for stress reduction. But the crocus are blooming, and that’s a wonderful thing. So I thank the Great Mother for the beauty of Spring, and I work on the precept “Just for today, do not worry” and spend more time on the Reiki table and giving Reiki to others.
I may not know what the future will bring, but over the next many months I will work to bring Reiki to more people any way that I can.
