Today's Reiki Insights for 2/12/18


for 2/12/18

Happy Monday Everybody!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and are having a great start to your week.  During today's Reiki session I was filled with one repeating thought: how do you nurture perseverance?  By its very definition, it's the act of continuing on when things are difficult, so it's needed most when things are at their worst.  But how do you foster the ability to push forward when things are at their bleakest?  Where does that inner strength come from?

It seems as though we've entered a time when life feels more polarized than ever (something I know I've touched on before).  We're bombarded with aggression and even our comedy seems to have an ever more sarcastic bite.   So what's the answer?

For me, the only answer is love.  It sounds trite and overdone, but perhaps that's just a product of its simplicity and truth.  What if the fact that it sounds trite is more of a testament to our times than its accuracy?

Love is the foundation from which all perseverance springs forth.  Love for others, love for ourselves, love for our country, love for the world at large - true love in this way can keep us marching on when our drive has left us long ago.  But sometimes, in our darkest moments, we need to be reminded that love is there.

So I challenge you to take a moment out of your day today to express your love in a simple way to someone you know is struggling, or even just to someone you might not have expressed it to as recently as you might have - even if that someone is you!  If you're in need of that love, really take it in when it comes.  And if you're currently in a place where you feel filled up, spread it around and see just what a difference it makes.

And know that we're here sending you all the love (and Reiki) that we've got!
