Just for today… do not procrastinate (Part 2)
So I should be a third of my way in with this 21 day Reiki cleanse. I am not. I keep forgetting to do it, and when I do, it’s only for 5 or 10 minutes maximum. This is strange as normally I never have any problems with self-healing but I’m finding it very hard to stick with this Reiki cleanse.
As a Reiki Master with over 10 years’ experience, I am very much aware that self-love goes hand in hand with self-discipline. That if I want to succeed I must put in the time, the focus and the commitment. I must prove to myself that I can do this and yet it has turned into a chore that I keep putting off.
So I’m turning to the Five Disciplines of Reiki to help guide me.
Just for today…
Do not anger
Do not worry
Do your duties fully
So I’m not angry with myself. I’m not going to worry about this. I am grateful that I have the ability to give myself Reiki whenever I need or want to. I will do my duty fully and commit to this Reiki cleanse. I will be kind to myself. I will start over again and try to commit to the 21 days of self-healing, self-love and ensure that I have the self-discipline to continue till the end.
It is funny though that the one time I really find it difficult to commit to a Reiki cleanse it has to be all about procrastinating…
I am finding though, that once I’m up in the morning, I do have a little more energy. I’m beginning to get that need for urgency in the pit of my belly to complete tasks. So I am aware that the self-healing is still having an effect on me though I’ve not been able to complete it properly. Today I started the 21 day cleanse again and was able to commit to 15 minutes, and so that’s an improvement.
I have a list of things that I’ve been putting off. I have written a book which was taken up by a Publisher and will be available to buy in 2022. As part of my contract with the Publishers I have to commit to some marketing tasks which includes social media and I find social media quite difficult. I find it hard to write posts and connect with this online world, so I always put them off. But writing this blog and putting it up on social media is surprisingly actually not too difficult. Strangely for someone who hides from the social media world, I don’t really mind sharing these personal details with you. Maybe it’s because I can’t see you guys. Who knows…
There’s so many things I need to get done that I just procrastinate over and put off. I’ve been writing stories in my head since I was a child and I started one a few years ago, a fictional story involving Reiki and I’ve only written about a tenth of it. I have the whole story in my head, but getting it out of my head and onto paper is like trying to climb a mountain in high heels, and so I put it off.
Anyhow, just in case anyone wants to know how I conduct a self-healing, this is what I normally do. I always take time out to myself in a quiet room and if there’s anyone around (basically just my partner), I let them know to not disturb me and I put my phone on silent. I normally sit in bed or in my Reiki room (both at the back of the flat overlooking gardens) so I don’t have to hear traffic noise or anything else. I do always play the same music or listen to nature. I ensure that I’m warm and comfortable and go into meditation.
I put my hands in Gassho (prayer position) and ask the universe. ‘Please join me in this healing, let the healing energies flow through my arms and hands and into my being for my highest good. Allow the universal energies to flow through my being removing all dis-ease and negativity, to unblock any energy blockages, remove all poisons and toxins and fill my being with love and healing.’
I will then envision the required energy frequency (symbol or Kotodama). Keeping my hands in Gassho on level with my heart chakra, I tap my hands together 3 times to invoke the power of the energy frequency required. I will then lift my hands still in Gassho to my third eye chakra and again tap and invoke the same energy frequency 3 times and then I move my hands back to my heart chakra and repeat. This allows me to build up the energy in my hands and I then place my hands on my body, normally my chest and allow the energy to flow into my being.
Now I say ‘being’ because it is never just my physical body that I’m healing. I’m healing my emotional body, my mental body and my energy (soul, spirit, aura) body. I also direct the energy to where it needs to go so I’m not trying to put my hands on my body in uncomfortable positions, because that makes me lose focus. However if I do have a physical issue for example a painful muscle, I place my hands on that part of my body as it helps ease pain and discomfort.
There is one thing that I find is the most important thing when trying to heal. Intent. Without intent there is no focus, and so no healing. The intention to heal must be the focus.
So yeah, I had to restart my 21 day Reiki cleanse again, but I’m not worried about it. I’m going to commit again and keep my intention and focus on it. This is self-love, even though the self-discipline is hard, I know I can try and try again.
