Good morning all,
I think all my spring cleaning efforts are beginning to work their magic and I’m making space for a new adventure!
De-cluttering or space clearing is a bit like going on holidays.
First you consider packing just about everything you own and then you start letting go of ‘stuff’ so you can travel more comfortably.
You begin to understand you don’t need all that ‘baggage’ as it serves no real purpose.
Plus, you always come back with more exciting holiday stuff anyway.
You have to let go of the old baggage, to allow in the new.
Spring cleaning at its best.
And, so it is emotionally, you have to let go of the old and comfortable, the routine and safe way and move forward to that which makes you FEEL GOOD about yourself – even if it scares the pants off you!
That’s why we all like to buy new clothes for our holidays.
It makes you feel good while you’re away, more confident and proud to be YOU!
You like to present the best of yourself to new friends in the making.
In new surroundings you can strut your stuff with pride and confidence.
You smile a lot and feel good about yourself.
You chat to strangers and take an interest in everything and everyone around you.
Fish and chips on a bus stop bench, or by the beach, in Spain, or Nebraska, never tasted so good
The locals think you’re bonkers but that’s because the wonder of what they have on their doorstep has become jaded, to them it’s just there, like it’s always been.
I lived in London and have never went to see St. Paul’s cathedral.
Chris lived almost next door to it and only walked past it, then, when he went back to see it, it was closed!
How many Parisians do you meet up the Eiffel Tower?
Holidays are full of new and exciting adventures, but you have to keep moving forward towards the next one.
Otherwise, you just come home to your old wardrobe, full of the old stuff and slip right back into your boring comfort zone and wonder what your holiday snaps will turn out like!
(Of course, your snaps will all be digital now. Silly old me!)
It’s as if you’ve never been away 🙁
But supposing, just for today…
You pretend to be on holidays? (Oh yes please!)
Suddenly there’s plenty of time…
You feel more relaxed.
Perhaps you could pretend you’re a new volunteer at your work place
Or maybe just ‘helping’ a friend out for a few hours
See your work through your holiday sunglasses
Slow down and use your Chikara-Reiki-Do as you’d wish to.
Start the day with a self-treatment.
Then stroke some into the cat as you pass, send it to the birds in the bushes, bless your food and drink.
Take time to bless the room you work in and your own work space.
Keep a little teddy to hand and then for anyone who seems ‘out of sorts’, you can send them a little Chikara-Reiki-Do blessing across the room using the teddy as a surrogate.
Send a Chikara-Reiki-Do blessing to forthcoming meetings or for decisions to be for the highest good of all concerned – perfick!
Then in the evening let it all go, for tomorrow’s another new holiday day!
And that way you don’t have to take today, into tomorrow.
So, while you relax with another mini self-treatment, decide where it is you would like to go on your ‘holidays’ tomorrow
Because your life can always be one big holiday – if you really want it to be.
So, where do you want to ‘holiday’…
A totally new work place?
Then have a look in what you could think of as being the ‘holiday’ jobs brochure
Want to ‘holiday’ with a different partner?
Go to the ‘holiday’ destinations where you imagine the person of your dreams might hang out
Want to ‘holiday’ in a healthier, slimmer body?
Then don’t over eat on the Italian pasta, Irish potatoes or American bagels, especially if it makes you feel bad about yourself – because you should only be doing things which make you feel GOOD about yourself.
Because people on ‘holiday’ ONLY choose to do things which makes them feel GOOD each day
And don’t forget to support your body, if it’s feeling poorly.
It’s trying to tell you to let go of something which doesn’t make you feel good, literally
So what else could you do to get that holiday feeling each day?
How about sharing a Chikara-Reiki-Do blessing 🙂
Q – Can someone please explain how to do a Chikara-Reiki-Do Blessing?
I know to visualize the Power symbol into your palm before shaking someone’s hand BUT do you “intend a blessing” as well?
Do you think “Bless this person” or what?
How do you “Bless” something?
Thanks, and Blessings 🙂
A – Yes, you can simply ‘intend’ a blessing.
For your intention is the pathway to everything!
Giving a blessing is to say Thank You for a thing being as it is. Perfick…
Or to intend by doing something – that, that thing, is the best it can be.
To maximise its potential.
To give a Thank You prior to it being the best it can be… but acknowledging that the ‘best’ part is there in the making.
A blessing demonstrates your appreciation
Using Chikara-Reiki-Do energy to bless something, is simply bringing the steadfast and true nature of the situation to the fore.
So, to bless a room, you can draw out any or all the symbols in front of the walls, ceiling and floor.
Gently blow the symbols into the bricks and mortar and affirm:
“I call upon the Reiki energy to bless this room with love, light and laughter. For the highest good of all concerned”
Or you can adapt that for a situation, a meeting, your food and drink, certain events, exam papers, etc.
What’s written at the end of the question: ‘Thanks and Blessings’ is perfect too – short and sweet and says it all
So, thanks and blessings to YOU all
Have a powerful Chikara-Reiki-Do weekend…
