RAISE YOUR VIBRATION USING THE 5 REIKI PRECEPTS

RAISE YOUR VIBRATION USING THE 5 REIKI PRECEPTS

 

 

Raise Your Vibration Using The Reiki Precepts

Introduction

As part of our Level 1 Reiki training, we are certain to learn of Usui’s precepts and the benefits that these bring to our lives as we start to apply them daily.

When I’m teaching, I love to explain how the precepts can gradually change our way of thinking and acting/reacting as we apply them on a daily basis.  I also like to emphasize what my original Reiki teacher told me, on my Level 1 course, about how very clever Usui was by adding the simple preface of “Just for Today” before each precept making them attainable for us all.

But today I awoke with a very specific thought about how the precepts can help raise our vibration.

How The Precepts Affect Our Vibration

As we know the precepts begin:

Just for today…

  • Do not be Angry
  • Do not Worry

Worry and Anger are both low vibrational emotions.  In fact, as far as the spectrum of emotion goes, they’re pretty much the bottom of the pile (except for despair and hopelessness).

So, it’s no wonder that Usui then went on to add…

Just for today…

  • Be filled with Gratitude

This is a far more positive emotion and one that is far higher on the vibrational scale.

The fifth precept also states…

Just for today…

  • Be kind to people and yourself

What is this teaching us other than to show compassion and love for everyone (and by extension, everything) and very important to ourselves?  The emotions of love and compassion are pretty much the top of the pile when it comes to vibration.

A Way to Apply This in Daily Life

Daily we are bombarded by news of things that are focused on the negative.  That is focused on bringing down our level of vibration. Even if you avoid newspapers and news programmes you will not be able to escape the barrage of information about the terrorist threat, climate change and Brexit etc.

Think about that for a moment.  What is that potentially doing to your vibrational state?

Over my lifetime there has been a constant supply of such fear-inspiring issues: Cold war, the threat of global nuclear destruction, oil running out, global financial crises, housing market crashes and the list goes on and on.

Looking back at my own life, for more than four decades, this led to me living in a state of fear and trepidation.  For example, as a child, I had repeated nightmares about war!

When we live predominantly in this emotional state it weakens who we are.  It suppresses us as individuals. It stops us from reaching our real potential and living a contented and fulfilling life.  This is a HUGE deal! We cannot, MUST not, allow this to be the case!

So, what if we connect all of these kinds of negative emotional triggers to our five Reiki precepts?

If we do, then we will no longer worry about them.  We will no longer be angry about what is happening around Mother Earth.  Instead, we will be moved by LOVE and COMPASSION and act on that basis. As we do, we move and act from a far more empowering emotional standpoint.  AND, through our example, we lead others to do the same!!

Conclusion

So, Just for Today, can we avoid acting from fear and anger?

Can we move to a place where we never act from worry or despair?

If we can, then we can become moved and motivated by LOVE, by COMPASSION, and a desire to help mankind and this beautiful planet upon which we live from a far more empowered stance.

Hope this has helped you today.

MY TOP 3 TIPS TO REDUCE STRESS/ANXIETY

MY TOP 3 TIPS TO REDUCE STRESS/ANXIETY

 

The world and how we live, communicate and interact has changed forever. Although we all still have 24 hours each day to work, socialize, play, relax, study, grow and enjoy time with our family and friends; we are bombarded by so many outside sources and influences all fighting for our time and attention, that it can become overwhelming and very stressful… unless we take the time to control and reduce the everyday stress that we are all exposed to.

Taking the time to learn how to deal with and reduce everyday stress is something that everybody should invest in for the sake of their own health and well-being. It is a well-known fact that our health can suffer from the effects of stress, which in turn can also make it difficult to think clearly enough to solve even the simplest of tasks and function productively each day. The good news is that there are a number of easy techniques for reducing your stress which we will cover here in this article.

As more studies show almost daily, the link between stress and so many health problems; stress management becomes an important consideration for many people. The following 3 stress management tips can help you to reduce the levels of stress in your life, so consider embracing them into your daily life.

Stress Reduction Tip 1: Massage and Reiki

Treat yourself to a massage. This is a great way to reduce and manage your stress levels. Massage has often been thought of as a great way to relieve sore muscles, but it can also reduce overall body tension, anxiety and stress too. There are a lot of studies that prove massage is a great way to reduce stress when done regularly. There are many different types of massage, so you should try several kinds and find the one that you prefer. Nowadays it’s not usually hard to find qualified massage therapists. Massage can release endorphins in the brain which produce pleasure which is helpful in not only stress reduction but also helpful for emotional issues such as anxiety and depression to name but a few.

If you cannot find a local Masseuse then you can also try a self-massage after maybe a hot bath, or get your husband, wife or partner to give you a massage. You could add reiki into the mix, by placing the reiki symbols into your hands or the hands of your Masseuse, and ask that reiki flows through your/their hands during the massage.

You could also add Reiki to any essential oils you may use during the massage, by placing your hands around the jar or container. This is very useful if you are getting a massage from someone who is not already attuned to reiki.

Stress Reduction Tip 2: Relaxation Techniques and Reiki

Most of are already aware of several different methods of relaxation that can have a very positive impact of reducing stress. Some of the most popular modalities for relaxation are basic mediation and the various forms of yoga. You can easily learn meditation or yoga to relax and reduce stress either by taking online home study courses or in person at a local workshop.

There are also other options for these major relaxation techniques. A simpler and more straightforward option would be to learn deep breathing techniques. You can use these even when you are sitting at your desk at work or on a bus or train on the way to and from work. Progressive muscle relaxation and mental imagery are other popular basic relaxation techniques you can use to reduce everyday stress.

Once again, Reiki can be added to the mix to enhance your relaxation exercises or modalities. For example, if you were practising muscle relaxation or mental imagery, you could intend and imagine the healing white light of reiki flowing through your body, to every muscle, tissue and cell from the very tips of your toes to the top of your head, bringing waves of healing, relaxation and rejuvenation.

Stress Reduction Tip 3: Exercising on Schedule

It’s just like what your physical education teacher always said. Maintaining a regular exercise schedule can do wonders for your body. The major benefit of exercise is that it can encourage the proper circulation of your blood. This, in turn, ensures that oxygen and nutrients reach the various cells in your body. You need these if you ever hope to prevent or fight off the bad effects of stress on your health.

Reiki can be used to aid in the recovery process after exercise through daily self-treatments. You can also add Reiki to your hot bath or shower after exercise to soak or wash away any fatigue after exercise.

Finally, in order to reduce your everyday stress levels, remember to get enough sleep and eating healthily.

I hope you find these suggestions helpful.
