I do not always write about our Reiki circles, but lately it seems there has been something of interest to write about. Last night we had a very nice sized Reiki circle, not out biggest, but big for our small town Reiki community. We had 15 people come, learn about, discuss and share Reiki.
We had people of all experiences with Reiki and some with absolutely no experience at all. We started with a discussion of what Reiki is, then how to do Reiki, then as we know, especially with Reiki that EXPERIENCE IS THE BEST TEACHER, we DID Reiki on each other. That is what Reiki circle is all about after all, DOING!!
Which leads me to one of my favorite quotes I read in my Reiki I class about Reiki by Frank Arjava Petter from his book “Reiki, The Legacy of Dr. Usui”, “Reiki itself, I mean the energy, cannot be taught. It reveals itself completely on its own if we are attentive. This attention is what the teacher promotes in the student.”
“Energy must not be explained, but experienced.”
I and one other at our table received our first Reiki from a baby. And, he had very distinct ideas about where he wanted his hands as well as his mother’s hands. He was pushing on her and directing her hands where he wanted them to be. He was quite serious in his practice. But, then, he’s quite a serious guy.
I also felt a very strong feeling of coming together. Not just this group of 15 people coming together, but the whole world, coming together as ONE, to shift the energy of our planet. These are the feelings I often get at Reiki circle and one of the reasons I love Reiki circle so much and encourage everyone to attend one. Small groups of spiritual people coming together with intention, purpose and Divine Guidance can seriously change the world for the better. We can save ourselves and our world, all at the same time.
What are you doing on a Saturday night that is more important than that? (Question for you, not for me.)
Thank you so much for all who attended our circle last night. I’m so incredibly grateful every single time I get to participate with these amazing spiritual people, right here in my own small town. I’m constantly amazed by how many people are coming out of the woodwork to learn Reiki and also, a whole new way of being connected to our Creator through Reiki practice. I love it, live for it because it gives me great hope for our future. And, because it makes life truly magical every single day.
Great Blessings to you all,
