I’ve been thinking about Reiki a lot lately. And not in a good way. Ever since I got sick, over 3 weeks ago, I’ve had a love-hate relationship with Reiki. Actually, I’ve been a hater. I was so frustrated that despite all my practice, Reiki did not prevent me from getting sick. Nor did it help me get well faster. At least, not to my knowledge or awareness.
Now that I am finally feeling somewhat back to normal, I’m wondering if my expectations were unrealistic. (And, why o why does this feel so familiar to me?) I mean, I’ve been practicing Reiki on and off (mainly off) for about a year. I only recently got Reiki Level 2 certified so it probably wasn’t fair for me to expect Reiki to do all that I wanted it to do.
Today, I asked Andrea, my Reiki teacher, how I should get back into the Reiki groove. Her answer was simple: start practicing! How could I expect to get better or more tuned into the energy if I was just thinking about it and not actually doing it? Duh!
I did a mini-five minute Reiki session on myself. Did I feel different? Not really. But at least I did something. And something is better than nothing.
