It is now just two days until Christmas, and I am feeling childishly excited despite the pandemic. This year has been tumultuous. I have experienced the darkest days and most extreme emotions that I have ever felt as I began to make sense of my little world and how it has changed.
I took time to be alone and meditated on my thought processes. My reiki journey reached a new height recently when I qualified as a Usui Reiki Master, but my real learning journey is just beginning. Now I live reiki. It permeates my body, it helps me to grieve, it lightens my mood, it reminds me to laugh at myself. Christmas is a time for fun and frivolity, but we also remember lost loved ones and we do feel sadness and grief.
Reiki has proved to be a source of support and comfort for me. Although I struggle to set aside time to properly meditate and listen to appropriate music every day, I still make sure that I focus on the reiki energy that is ever present. I ask it to pulse through my body, to flow through my mind, and to help me with all the “stuff” that is created in modern life. Aside from the growing pains of motherhood, I find myself grieving for Christmases past, and a way of life that my daughters will never know, because our family dynamic has changed forever. We have splintered and grown apart, and I realise that it bothers me more than I let on.
Last week I joined with my local reiki practitioners and enjoyed the full benefits of reiki meditation under the gentle guidance of our wonderful teacher. She is a source of support, enlightenment, and great wisdom, and I know that we came together at the right time for my spiritual development. I couldn’t have handled all of this during the last couple of years, but I can now because I am fully aware of my situation, and I accept the emotion that I need to express. I am allowing it to release when it needs to, in a gentle, healing, cleansing environment. Solstice Blessings to you, my spiritual friends, and may we enjoy the festivities of our winter season.
