It’s no secret that stress plays a major role in the imbalance and lack of energy you experience in daily life. You also know that over time, continued stress can weaken your body and increase the risk of dis-ease.
It’s very simple: When energy is depleted, it needs to be replenished.
Reiki is a gentle way of doing that - and helps us tap into the unlimited source of energy within us.
But as the end of 2021 is fast approaching, you may find yourself speeding up and resenting – instead of slowing down and recharging.
To achieve more or just to keep up, you may feel like you have to do more – in less time. While digital technology, smart devices, apps and other very useful tools can lead to increased productivity, they can also keep us in the tyranny of overwhelm.
Your most valuable resources are your attention and your time.
Yet, we live in a distraction economy and suffer from constant information overload. Journalist Oliver Burkeman even wrote that our attention is spammed all day long.
The book Free to Focus by Michael Hyatt teaches that “productivity is not about getting more things done; it’s about getting the right things done. It’s about starting each day with clarity and ending with a sense of satisfaction, accomplishment, and energy to spare.” The first step is to STOP.
Reiki has taught me that to focus on what really counts and who really matters, I need to STOP.
I need to stop sweat the small stuff. I need to stop getting distracted by the next bright shiny objects. I need to stop saying “yes to everybody and everything” and start saying “no” more, so I can say “yes to myself.” I learned to set and maintain boundaries, energetically and physically, so I can stay balanced.
It taught me that PEACE is an achievement – and not something that happens magically. It’s a result of my focus, my choices, and my discipline.
You, too, have a choice. Every day. Every moment even.
You can start. Right here. Right now. Or the next time you see a STOP sign.
- Take a deep breath. Inhale to the count of 5. Exhale to the count of 8.
- Ask yourself: “What do I need NOW?”
- Listen to your body. To yourself.
Remember: Energy flows where the attention goes...
