Believe in yourself

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.

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.

I hope you can find your fire today!

Create a self care affirmation for difficult times

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.

Here is May’s Reiki calender provided by Reiki Rays. I was late getting this posted but its here now! In addition, please check back for Daily Inspirations I’ll be posting. I’ve been making a conscious effort to start the day with my own energetic boundaries and energy maintenance as the basis for my day. I will share these daily and I hope for you they’ll be a breath of calm in a crazy world.

Daily Grounding and Clinical Practice

Daily Grounding our Energy

Reiki can be a wonderful tool to help with everyday life. I’ve posted link above for an article I found on Reiki Rays concerning how a Reiki Practitioner can protect and guard their own energy during a session. I’ve used similar practices when doing a Reiki session, but I’ve found these practices to be helpful during my clinical practice.

When I do a Reiki session, I typically ground myself with a few minutes of meditation, focusing on my feet, and much like this article mentions, allowing my energy channels to receive and transmit.

As a physician, I found doing something similar is a lifesaver. I’m much busier in clinic, so its a luxury to have more than a few minutes between patients. Once I enter an exam room, I ground myself as I sit to speak with the patient. I also invoke Reiki, but as you can imagine this isn’t so easy in a busy clinic. I can use my feet as I sit to ground during the patient’s appointment.

I feel that everyone needs some kind of grounding throughout the day. Simply engage with the Earth through your feet and take a few deep breaths. If time allows, you can do a few minutes, but even a few seconds can help build a protective shield as well. Taking a few deep breaths at the same time helps even more.

Thank you for stopping by! Have a wonderful evening!
