I borrowed the title this week from Anita… I think it may have grabbed your attention… ha ha ha!
This week, in fact life in general, seems to have thrived on drama…
Everything has had to be dramatic or sensational.
To demonstrate just how tired and sad this all is you only have to look at the weather forecasts for the UK this past week.
Arctic weather storms, country at a standstill, schools closed, blah, blah, blah! They seem to have somehow forgotten it just happens to be winter right now.
Anyone over 50 remembers when winter really meant winter…
…with snow for weeks, not hours… ha ha ha! In fact it has been warmer and wetter here in Eyemouth – with only the merest dusting of snow.
Nowadays media headlines sound like a Victorian contributing to the flagellation of deceased equines (flogging a dead horse)… ha ha ha!
OK, so let’s jump in with the question this week. The one that has inspired the title 🙂
Q… How can I protect myself completely?
And my answer…
Everyone will probably be expecting the clichéd answer that you should surround yourself with white light.
That you should live in a bubble of love…
That you could put the Reiki symbols in front and behind of you like defensive shields… and so on and so forth BUT…
What’s the point???
To totally protect yourself from what… LIFE???
And why on earth would you want to do that?
You might as well be dead!
If you are so afraid of physical hurt then take up martial arts, or walk away from that which hurts you.
If you are so afraid of emotional upset then join a hermit’s colony, or walk away from that which hurts you.
If you are so afraid of LIFE, then your spirit might as well be dead anyway.
So you might as well be dead!
Life is intricate, convoluted, interconnected, painful, pleasurable, happy, sad, joyful, frustrating, infuriating, dynamic, boring, and some days just plain dull and ordinary.
But then you have ‘one of those days’…:-)
See… I bet you immediately thought one of ‘those’ days…ha ha ha!
But, I mean one of those days that are sheer perfection 🙂
You know what love means because your heart was touched by another.
You know what living in harmony means as the sequence of the moments fitted together like a seamless dream.
For one, often very brief, moment you just KNOW what it is all about 🙂
That perfect sunset, the beauty of nature in a small bird’s song, the sound of joy in a child’s laughter, the vastness of it all as the sea storms the cliffs…
So heaven forbid I should ever want to be protected from living my life to the full.
I don’t want to miss out on one tiny bit of it. I want to live it full on, in my face, over the top, until I am full to the brim and then overflowing with vitality, vim and vigour… ha ha ha!
People who want protecting are usually the sort who just want to sit there allowing others… dead or alive… to put upon them.
My answer to them?
Create a life that you don’t find threatening.
Get rid of your pompous boss.
Get rid of your domineering partner.
Get the kids to boarding school… ha ha ha!
Move house…and don’t tell anyone…ha ha ha!
You create or allow it all… so create what you DO want and don’t allow what you don’t want.
If you live your life in a blanket of FEARS it will smother you.
You will be dead from the neck up, as my Mother used to say…
So be sensible, yes.
Don’t go down dark alleys. Walk away from dead end relationships. Get a job you enjoy doing. Move house, or whatever it is you want to do – but whatever it is, just do it…
Take a sensible approach to lurking spirits… the worst they can do is go ‘Boo’, unless you let them in 🙂
Simply set your intention for only good things to happen. For sure as eggs are eggs, if you continually set your intention to protect yourself from ‘bad’ things happening, guess what?
You’ll have to create the ‘bad’ things to protect yourself from…
…because you always get what you focus on, you always get more of what you give your attention to, you always get exactly what you intend.
So, be careful what you ask for, as that is exactly what you will receive 🙂
For example Chris, DC and I don’t have any truck with Murphy’s Law no, no, no…
…we only operate under Conroy’s Law: ‘Whatever can go right will.’
So instead of Reiki suicide let’s have a Reiki Life, lived to the max 🙂
Open yourself up… 24/7 to your Divine Love and Wisdom. Let there be no room for anything else.
Embrace your life and when it comes time, you can embrace your death with the same vim and vigour and joyful feelings.
You will be ready to let go…
Now, part of enjoying life includes a nice Sunday roast with all the trimmings… ha ha ha!
That’ll give anyone the strength to chase away the boogie man…
Ooops, nearly forgot… Can I just mention that there will be no Saturday webcast next weekend as it is Valentine’s Day and you have to be prepared for surprises, but only ‘good’ ones mind… ha ha ha!
