Just for Today... The basic point we need to focus if we want to discover the sense of its discipline. Today! The Now and Here... nothing else...
Past, does not exist anymore, except as a total of experiences which we could use as lessons to proceed to a better Now and Here and a splendid Tomorrow.
Future does not exist similarly. We don't have any contract of the duration of the present life we live. We build our Tomorrow, living Now and Here as consciously and honestly we can.
Just for Today, I will not worry!
Just for today, I will not get angry!
Just for today, I will do my work honestly!
Just for today, I will be gentle to all!
Just for today, I will be grateful to all!
These 5 principles of Reiki is the essence of its power, supposing that the practitioner will follow them consciously and with discipline!
Attunements are important to Reiki as are part of its discipline and we respect them. The blessing of another human being, especially when he/she symbolizes the hand of the whole lineage of the Teachers is an act of sharing and also of humility. This is a spiritual way to receive the attunements.
What we need to focus is the capacity and the importance of a person (the teacher), to make us understand the intensity and the spiritual meaning of this powerful method. The goal is to understand that No Body is Healing Nobody! But the cosmic energy of Love that here we call Reiki is the Healer! This energy activates the Love mechanism within us and empowers it in a magical way! Our touch is full of this loving energy when we practice Reiki following its principles!
So let just practice the 5 principles and Reiki will empower Our Love in order to activate the same source of Love within others and heal and balance the whole being...
What Reiki needs is PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE!
