Happy Spring Everyone! I have recently been through a wonderful and challenging transition of starting a new job in a new city and state. I have been so busy I’ve been neglecting my blog but I want to use April 1st, a new month (not an April Fool’s) to reconnect.
One of my favorite sites for inspiration is Reiki Rays.
Every month they are releasing a calendar of daily activities using Reiki. Having been so busy, I’ve been meaning to write about the power of Reiki in the real world, which I’ll get to in a later post.
Today’s schedule is to “Embrace your Reiki Angel role on planet Earth”.
I have discussed my path to Reiki in a previous post. I have been a practicing physician much longer than I have been a Reiki Practitioner, but I am so thankful to my teachers and to Reiki for this wonderful practice that brought back compassion to my role as a physician. Prior to being lead to Reiki, I loved my job as a physician, but I was quickly losing touch with what I was doing and why. I felt pulled in so many directions to produce, see more patients, make more money.
Reiki helped me to connect with myself, then connect to others. As a physician, Reiki is a gift beyond description. I rely heavily on evidence based medicine and scientific research. But when I’m face to face with a patient who is struggling, Reiki helps to find an answer that is not so “left brained” and logical in nature. Reiki helps me to have empathy in a meaningful way. I hope all of you who are Reiki practioners feel the same. I also hope that if you are considering getting closer and learning Reiki, you will. You won’t regret it.
