My history with Reiki

I am a Certified Reiki Master / Teacher. I received my first certification near Salem, Massachusetts by Laura Weston Willy at Spirit of Love. I’ve been called the ‘Reiki Rocker’ by friends. Some in humor not knowing how one mixes Rock ‘n’ Roll with Spirituality, and others who have known me for years and have watched me on my spiritual journey AND rock their faces off.

In 2002 I delved into the world of Life Coaching, having gone through all three phases of Summit Education in South Florida. Summit was based on the ‘EST‘ (Erhard Seminar Training) principles created in the 1970’s. EST adopted, in part, the Zen master approach. In 2011 I added to these tools by becoming Reiki Level I and eventually becoming a Reiki Master/Teacher.

What exactly is Reiki anyway?

Reiki (English pronunciation: Ray-kee) is a form of spiritual healing and spiritual practice. An article from Reiki.org answers the question, “What is reiki?” Reiki is believed by its adherents to be beneficial for treating physical, emotional, mental and spiritual diseases. Mikao Usui (Usui Mikao 臼井甕男) originated Reiki in early 20th century Japan. According to his followers, Usui received the ability of ‘healing without energy depletion’ after three weeks of fasting and meditating on Mount Kurama.

If you write down that you want more money.... how much? What would it feel like to have that amount? What would you do with it? If it's a new car... what color is it? What does it feel like to sit behind the wheel? Where would you drive it? Or maybe you just want to be happy. What would make you happy? What would it feel like to smile? When you are writing these things down, paint a picture in as much detail as you can. You can even create a vision board. Take some old magazines, cut out pictures that you like and paste them on your vision board. Prop the vision board up in front of your bed so that is the first thing you see when you wake up and then the last thing you see before you fall asleep.

Surround yourself with people you aspire to be like. I have a quote that I keep close to me at all times... "Attract what you expect. Reflect what you desire. Become what you respect. Mirror what you admire." Surrounding yourself with people that you have nothing in common with, or that are negative does you no good whatsoever. Why are you with these people? What value do they have in your life? Is being around them helping you and them grow? If not, gently and with love... walk away.

Don't tell the world what you want. Just do it. And by God, don't post it on facebook!

A for sure way to stop you in your tracks is to tell the world what you want. What you are doing is inviting people to tell you that you can't and that it's impossible, or they've tried it and failed. You will get every excuse in the book and it will eventually wear you down and you'll end up quitting yourself. I'm not suggesting that you don't share what you want, but keep it to a small group of people that are inspiring you to do it. Start a meet up group of like minded people that will push you, and you in turn help them as well.

In summary, we live in a 'Have - Do - Be' world. If I have a great job, work hard, I will be happy. Unfortunately, we've been getting it all wrong. Turn that around to 'Be-Do-Have'. If you are happy, and you are doing what you love you will have all that you desire...

So. Feel Good. Focus on right NOW. Focus on something, anything but the lack in your life.

Peace- DavidI
