REIKI INSIGHTS for 11/16/18
There's a saying that floats around the Kundalini yoga community that goes, "we are the ones we've been waiting for" (it's also the name of a book by Alice Walker and one by Peter Levine). In essence the phrase means, it's up to us, people. It's up to us individually, and as a collective, to wake up, smell the coffee and change our lives. No one is going to do it for us. No teacher, savior, guide, doctor, healer or guru is going to swoop into our lives and make them what we want them to be. It’s up to us.
Now, you may be thinking, “Hold up Reiki email lady! That's a lot of pressure! It's up to me? That's a lot to handle. I need help. Don’t heap all that responsibility on me!”
To that I say - yes, it CAN feel like a lot of pressure. But it doesn't HAVE to. Instead, it can be empowering to acknowledge and own that we have the power to change the way we see our lives and therefore how we live them.
All we need, we have inside of us. We need just look.
Of course there are friends, teachers, mentors and guides to accompany us on our journey. But ultimately it's up to us to look inside, gain awareness of ourselves and make the changes we wish to see in our own lives and in the world.
What's one area of your life that you can own and take charge of today? An area where maybe you've been subtly been waiting for the Universe, God, the president, your husband or your friend to come in and take over? Perhaps something in your community or at your workplace? Is there one small thing you can empower yourself to change today?
If we want things to change we have to be willing to stand up and change them.
Are you willing?
We are the ones we've been waiting for.
You can do this!
We can do this!
