The theme of the May calender from Reiki Ray’s is about self care. Self care is serious business. When we’re poor ourselves last we simply won’t be away our best.
I end up discussing this topic a lot while taking care of patients. Unfortunately, most of the diseases I treat are preventable and reversible, including Diabetes, high blood pressure, and obesity. A patient dealing with one of these needs to have a positive outlook on life and themselves in order to heal.
One way I recharge my self belief is to think of my own victories. They may be small, like connecting with a sick patient, or big, like finishing school. Tap into that feeling, not so much the end result, but the feeling on the way to the victory. Maybe that bright place can return to your heart today.
Todays Reiki Ray’s Inspiration is to be your own best friend. We all hope to have someone to confide in, but in tough times, being able to be there for yourself can be as important as being there for others.
Maybe you can treat yourself to a nice lunch, or don’t be hard on yourself, or maybe take credit for something your proud of.
Tonight is a full moon, and also a Blue Moon. Today’s Daily Inspiration is to create love for yourself. I recommend taking some time to step out beneath the full moon and observe nature’s beauty. Have a good weekend!
Fewer Excuses and more action for your heart’s desire
This May I decided to challenge myself. I love writing for this blog, so I make a daily effort to use the May Calender from Reiki Ray’s is to tap into your heart’s desire and do what you need to do.
Sometimes seeing fire, or imaging it’s warmth can help you tap into your bravery. Or maybe your fire needs to be stoked? If you find yourself taking lots of shallow breaths, try taking deep breaths into your belly. You might even try holding your hands on your belly and feeling your own internal fire.
Today’s inspiration from Reiki Rays is to create an affirmation for difficult times. Recently, I’ve been starting my days with a short intention. Sometimes its serious, such as “Today I keep my energetic boundaries strong”, or its short, like “Don’t run late in clinic all day”.
An affirmation can be any phrase, thought, or prayer that helps you. The real power in an affirmation is that it can be used to replace a thought or emotion that drains you.
Here are some affirmations, simply as suggestions, especially if your in a place in your life in which you may not have your own:
“I am enough”
“I Receive and Send Love”
“Love is abundant”
Happy Monday…feel free to share some of your positive affirmations.
Today’s inspiration from Reiki Rays is to slow down…I think this snail has got the idea. Most of have have to rush and move quickly, but maybe today you can enjoy a moment of too of nothing, or even delibrately take a long time to do something that takes a few seconds. Happy Sunday!
