Just For Today..

Whilst I really enjoy carrying out my daily self healing meditations a few weeks ago I was feeling quite stressed out and for the first time ever I took a step back and reminded myself of the reiki Precepts and in particular the first part, “Just For Today”. So, on that particular day whenever I was feeling stressed and anxious I would stop and ask myself why I was feeling that way as well as verbally reminding myself not to worry and not to be angry.At the end of day one I felt happier and more relaxed. I continued in this way for a whole week each time I was feeling stressed, angry or any other negative emotion I would ask myself why I was feeling that way and then remind myself that, at that particular moment and for that particular day only I need not be worried or angry and I told myself to let go of any negativity. At the end of the week I was feeling much more positive, happier and more full of love and joy for nature and humanity. I felt as if a blockage had been removed from my heart chakra. I also feel physically lighter as well as being where I should be physically and mentally. I intend to keep up this practice and I am grateful to my guides for leading in the right direction and showing me the path to the wonderful world of reiki.

Here are the reiki precepts for those of you who do not know what they are:

The secret art of inviting happiness
The miraculous medicine for all diseases:

Just for today
Do not anger,
Do not worry.
Be humble
Be honest
Be compassionate towards yourself and others.

To all my reiki friends out there : How have the reiki precepts affected your life ?

The Weather

It has been a long time since I last sat down to write my blog as I have been busy writing my book  “A Begininers Guide To Crystal Healing” and as I have almost finished it  I now have time to put pen to paper or rather my fingers to the keyboard and begin my New Years resolution which was to post at least monthly on my blog.

Today is a great day for my three dogs Alfie, Bones  (who is really my husbands dog and who is now world famous, check out his blog) and Jessie. The snow has been falling all day long and as I am devoted to my furbabies I wrap up warm and take them on their twice daily walks. The problem is that once off the lead they dont want to come back – they LOVE the snow and when I get to the fields at the back of my home and let them off their leads they simply do not want to come back. So, I am left standing there  trying to attract their attention as they run and roll around in the snow. By the time I get home they are tired out and I am cold and miserable but at the same time pleased that they have had a lovely time.

Due to all of the walking and time out in the cold weather I have began to develop a bit of a sore throat. I have been sending reiki to the throat and to the throat chakra as well as using green calcite to increase my energy and vibrations. This is a great stone to wear, especailly over the throat chakra in the form of a pendant as it helps eliminate any problems with the lungs and thyroid as well as supporting the immune system. You can also carry the stone around in your pocket or as some other form of jewellery.

Well, I am feeling much better now – ready to go out with the  dogs on another walk !!
