As soon as these words came to mind I thought, “Which me?” I then began to think just how many versions of myself I hold. I am a wife, daughter, sister, granddaughter, niece, auntie, great auntie and the list continues as I consider other roles outside of my immediate family. Is it any wonder we sometimes feel overwhelmed with life? Not only are there lots of roles but how to be good in these roles is passed down in families, circulated in the media and films, then really pushed to the extreme via advertising.
With all this focus on how we are meant to “show up” for others is it any wonder many of us have forgotten how to “show up” for ourselves. We are so concerned with “doing for others” we often forget to “be ourselves.”
Reiki can help you reconnect with yourself, find yourself, be yourself, fill that gap inside which has no name but you know it is there. The one which you feel when you have a rare moment to contemplate quietly, the knowing that there is something missing from your life but you just can’t put your finger on what that something is. Even if your external life is full of people you love, a well-paid job and wonderful holidays there is still this uneasiness.
Reiki first and foremost is a way to begin to heal yourself and as you do so help you learn about the real you, though regular self-practice and being prepared to listen to your body, mind and spirit. Enabling you to view your outer life from a different perspective, as a result of internal changes you make over time.
To be the best you can be in your own life, give yourself the time and commitment you freely offer to your family, friends, colleagues etc., Choose to bring Reiki into your life and perhaps you will find as I did that the gap inside disappeared and my life is full from the inside out. What I know for sure is that I am 100% of my own life so I deserve to invest in myself too. Everyone else in my life can only ever be a part of it and the better I feel about myself, the more I feel able to support those close to me in handling the ups and downs of life.
