REIKI INSIGHTS for 10/16/18 :: take a break
REIKI INSIGHTS for 10.16.18
“Gimme a break. Gimme a break. Break me off a piece of that Kit Kat bar.” 🍫
Anyone remember that song?
Well, that’s the song that opened up our Reiki session today. As soon as I sat down, that little jingle from my childhood started playing in my head and brought about a much needed chuckle.
After that, my EPs wasted no time in getting down to business. They immediately acknowledged that we’re moving through tough times and that many people are feeling hopeless and despairing, for a wide variety of reasons. 🙋🏻♀️
The antidote to this, as they see it, is two fold.
Step #1 - Give yourself a break! (See what they did there, leading with the Kit Kat song? #clever)
Step #2 - Have faith in your own personal power and go take action. 💪🏻
When we allow ourselves to be consumed by the problems of the world, we can easily get stuck in a feeling of hopelessness, wondering if there is anything we can do to really make a difference.
The EPs remind us, that, YES we CAN make difference! But the key is to start small. They specifically stated …
“Don’t give up hope. In yourself and in humanity. Do what you can locally. Start with yourself, your family, your friends, your community. How can you uplift and inspire those around you? Don’t get caught up/bogged down in the troubles of your country and world. This leads to overwhelm and despair. Instead, remember that you all have power. Start small and close to home. Branch out from there. The best place to start, is with being kind to yourself.”
They closed by offering each of us a pink peony, which, in the flower essence world that I come from, symbolizes grace, patience and hope. Peony can be supportive during times of global upheaval and it helps us to align us with who we are and with our path at this time. 💐
To help me put today’s message into play, I’m off to take the Ascend Essence blend CALM to help me chill out. And then, when I feel my nervous system back in alignment, I’ll be switching to ACTION, to help ignite my personal power and the myriad ways I can use it.
Happy Tuesday, Ascend friends!
