Confidence in Reiki
Q… First of all I would like to say thank you for the free videos – they are great. I have found them, not only very clear, but they have helped to clarify that I am doing things as I feel they should be done.
Just a thought on a personal basis – what do you do or say to Jehovah’s Witnesses when they come knocking?
I’m polite and friendly but don’t wish to get into a discussion about them saying how their ways are the right ways.
I have had them say that there is so much evil in the world, which I know there is, but I personally don’t know anyone around me or around where I live that is evil.
I have tried to tell them to look for the good around them – of which there is a great deal.
My husband is the opposite and will not even give them the time of day saying sorry and closes the door on them – he always tries to put them off by saying he is a Catholic.
I answered the door to a lady and man a couple of days ago and they immediately started their spiel. I tried to put them off by saying that I think there would be a conflict as I am a spiritual healer.
The reaction was – the man recoiled as if I had breathed fire at him. Whoops!
I was once told by a ‘friend’ who is a JW that the devil works through me – I said does that mean that the devil worked through Jesus?
Thank you again, Judith, you are a lovely friend and do a great job.
Ta muchly! Bless you and thank you again for all you do.
And my answer…
A… Your question isn’t really about JW’s is it?
It’s about being able to speak up for yourself and not be afraid that people won’t like you.
BTW – The last time we had some JW’s come to the door, and it was some time ago now, they used the same opening gambit that they probably used on you which was…
“Do you know the world is full of evil”?
To which Chris replied, “Well, I know there is evil on the planet, but my world is full of goodness”!
It stopped them in the tracks, and he then quietly closed the door.
But, back to you…
Next time they come around be ready with what YOU want to say, in a way YOU want to say it.
See it so, in your mind’s eye. Do not engage in their opening chat.
Smile and say ‘Hi, sorry, it’s not for me’… AND CLOSE THE DOOR.
There is no need to be rude, only polite but firm and assertive.
You can even say… ‘And please don’t call here again.’
Start with the small things and answer simply YES or NO.
Don’t hesitate… just answer and then stick with that answer.
Would you like tea or coffee?
Yes, tea please… or no thank you… sorted 🙂
Once you get the hang of that, you can open the door, say ‘NO’ and close it again… ha ha ha!
You are not a child and do not have to stand there and politely ‘behave’ whilst someone else overpowers you with their opinions, which are of NO importance to YOU.
Unless YOU choose to allow that, of course…
If YOU allow that, then stand there in silence and just look at them.
Can you see how far YOU have travelled along your road?
No longer beholding to some external power!
No longer living in fear of some retribution from above… ha ha ha!
Bless them for showing you how wonderful and free you really are now…
So beautiful, powerful Goddess and magical healer…
What’s it to be…?
Warrior healer or mousewife 🙂
