Let’s get one thing clear, a lot of people look like they’re worth a lot of money, but they could barely pay the rent. Other people look absolutely horrible, but they have quite a bit of money stashed away. You have to understand that if you want to earn a million bucks and look like somebody and look like it, you have to focus on one thing and one thing alone.
I’m not talking about your intelligence although that helps tremendously, I’m not talking about your good looks either. Sure, good looks can open a lot of doors for you, it can help you run into more opportunities, but in itself, your appearance is not going to take you as far as you would like it to.
I’m also not talking about your emotional appeal. Sure, you may know how to read people and get along with different kinds of personalities, but at the end of the day, there is one particular personal trait that wins out over all these other qualities.
Believe it or not, discipline is the secret to success. It’s more important than intelligence, good looks, or emotional intelligence.
You have to understand that discipline enables you to do whatever you need to do for however long it takes to achieve success. Even if you are not all that intelligent, or don’t really have much of a clue by being able to control yourself so that you are able to put in the kind of work that will enable you to figure things out, is the secret ingredient to victory.
This pays off in all areas of your life. In fact, if you have chosen to be more disciplined in one particular area, don’t be surprised if the self-control and personal ownership you have achieved in that one area, carries over to the other aspects of your life.
This all sounds great and everything, but there’s just one problem, discipline is a dirty word nowadays. Seriously, if you need proof of this, please take note of the fact that as recently as 10 years ago, people were were perfectly happy with their pizzas being delivered 30 minutes or it’s free. Most people back then could live with the 30-minute guarantee. Not anymore. In fact, if you ask around your local area, it probably would be very easy for you to find pizza shops who would guarantee delivery in 15 minutes or your pie is free.
It seems that with every passing decade, people’s attention span and their patience continue to shrink. Discipline, for all practical purposes, is a dirty word nowadays. It seems like some sort of old- fashioned concept that has no place in today’s world. I really can’t blame people for thinking this way because if you download a mobile app, you’re looking for instant results. If you access any kind of a website on the internet, you’re looking for instant results. We want everything to be quick, easy, and effortless.
The good news? If you think this is depressing, think again. Now that you know that everybody’s patience and tolerance for inconvenience or discomfort continues to shrink, it doesn’t take much thinking to realize that this gives you a tremendous competitive advantage.
By training yourself to just be more disciplined than everyone else, you will end up on top, more likely than not. Remember, everybody else’s discipline level is going down. Everybody else is constantly looking for faster, easier, and more effortless ways to do things. That’s where things are headed. But if you were to head the other direction and train yourself to put up with a lot more and stick to whatever commitments you have gotten into, you gain a competitive advantage. As the old saying goes, the one- eyed man is king in the kingdom of the blind.

Please keep this in mind, by simply investing time, effort, and energy in building up your personal discipline, you gain a competitive advantage. This advantage flies across the border. I don’t care whether you’re talking about your business, your career, academics or relationships. If you become the most disciplined person in a room, you have a competitive advantage.
You’re more likely to benefit from opportunities. You are more likely to have the intellectual, mental, and emotional firepower needed to take advantage of opportunities as they present themselves.

Reiki Spring Clean

This article written by Deborah Lloyd made me very nostalgic as I recall how my mom followed the same tradition and has passed it on to us siblings. A very interesting and simple read yet very engrossing too. Anyone who’s keen to learn  about Reiki ensure you read this article….it’s an eye opener! ENJOY!!

It has always been a ritual in my life. Even as a child, my sisters and I helped our mother with spring cleaning. When the weather warmed up after a cold winter, and the flowers started to bloom, it was time to clean the house from top to bottom. The cobwebs were removed, and the clutter from long winter days were stored, donated or thrown away. The draperies were changed, from heavy winter drapes to light, breezy curtains. The fresh air of spring days flowed through the house, and everything seemed bright and new. I brought some of these traditions to my own home after our marriage.

In the same way, perhaps we should approach Reiki with a new perspective, a fresh start, at least once a year. Like any other practice in our lives, we need to step back and re-evaluate our progress, or non-progress, in the area. We can continue to grow and be excited about changes in our work, or we can become stagnant in our practice.

During this time of the year, we can choose to bring in new light, new perspectives, or new focus on a specific area regarding Reiki.

Let’s begin with the beginning! How long has it been since you read Dr. Usui’s Reiki principles? Or, re-read your first Reiki manuals and books? Have you thought about your initial experiences of Reiki, both as a receiver and a giver? How can you recreate, or at least remember and reflect upon these exciting, first days? Meditating on the many joyful moments you have had with the Reiki experience can be a delight.

Next, evaluate where you are presently with your Reiki practice. Have you made it too hard, or too complicated? Have you set up some expectations in your mind that you are finding too difficult to meet? An example of this might be you set the intention to do a full, one-hour self-treatment every day. When this became impossible to do, you did not do any self-treatment at all.

In spring cleaning a home, the first step is to remove any clutter. The energy is shifted, and the room is made for the flow of fresh air. In the same way, we may need to remove the clutter of constant busyness in our lives. Utilizing the calmness of Reiki treatments assists us in keeping Reiki a priority in our lives. Reiki is not simply another task on our “to-do” lists; rather, it is a way of life. Reiki can lead us into a more harmonious and peaceful life when we make room for it within our lives.

If we are harboring doubts about the effectiveness of Reiki, or are holding onto negative thoughts, we need to declutter our minds of these energies. We may feel disappointed that a cure we had desired has not occurred. Although feelings of doubt and disappointment are common human experiences, we can take an active role in how to handle these thoughts. We can choose for the thoughts to remain in our minds, or we can choose to let them go. The method is simple – state an intention of releasing these thoughts, start the Reiki energy flow, and place our hands on our third eye and heart chakras simultaneously. Try it, it works!

Once negative thoughts are released, replace them with positive thoughts about Reiki. We have many gifts we can access. Give Reiki to yourself, or receive Reiki from another practitioner. Revisit encouraging Reiki articles and books, or past journal entries. Spend time in meditation or journal writing. Give gratitude for the beautiful gift of Reiki.

This kind of spring cleaning is essential for a lifelong Reiki path. Just like a house has to be sorted through, and cleaned up thoroughly at least once a year, so does our Reiki way of life. Many blessings to each of you who are committed to the Reiki journey!

What Is Your One Wish for the World?

Article by Deborah Lloyd

“What is Your One Wish for the World?” I read this question in an online article, and it stopped me in my tracks! What is my one wish for the world – right now, during this pandemic? Thousands and thousands of people are becoming ill, and many are transitioning. People are staying in their homes, and many are now unemployed. Healthcare, emergency, and essential service workers are on the frontlines. Fear and anxiety are rampant; but, so too are compassion and many acts of kindness. After some thought, I found my answer to this question. What is yours?

Finding your answer to this question requires reflection. We think of many possible answers, and then we start sorting through them, dismissing the less important ones and keeping ones that are truly vital. It is prioritizing what is essential, and what is not. Eventually, you will be left with one or two items that are critical to you.

This may be one of the biggest life lessons that each of us is living right now, through this worldwide crisis. We are learning what is truly important in our lives. We appreciate the good things we can enjoy in the present moment. We are enjoying the sunshine much more, when we are able to venture outdoors. We appreciate our food and clean water. We are counting our many blessings and expressing gratitude for them.

Slowing down has given many people the opportunity to reprioritize their lives. Many are enjoying a renewed connection with their families. Many are also reconnecting to their spiritual selves – and Reiki can certainly be one of the tools to assist them (and us) in this necessary quest.

Reiki enables us to find peace and calmness during any situation in our lives. And, let’s be honest, none of us has ever lived through a pandemic like this one. Although there have been flu and other virus outbreaks in past decades, this virus is much more mysterious and deadly. Facing the unknown, and feeling the uncertainties, are certainly challenging tasks. All of us are dealing with unforeseen changes in our lives. Reiki helps us to accept and cope with these changes.

Reiki also gives us an opportunity to take time out for meditation. Reiki is a wonderful tool for dealing with everyday challenges, within our own homes. We can give Reiki to those people with whom we live, and to our ourselves. We can send Reiki to other family members, friends, and clients. Additionally, Reiki is one of the best ways to reconnect with our Spirit family. Knowing we are supported spiritually is essential. Let us not forget - this is happening for a reason(s).

One of the beliefs that was confirmed for me during the discernment process of answering this question was my belief in the healing power of Reiki. Reiki, and the connection with the Universal Life Force Energy, has been my anchor during this time of uncertainty. Reiki has been my go-to tool in dealing with the changes in my life. I give gratitude daily for Reiki, my family and friends, my health, the list goes on.

Perhaps, it is now easier for you to answer this question – What is your one wish for the world?

Daily Reiki Inspiration - The Awakening

Couldn’t have thought of any better time to start my blog than now. With so much uncertainties sweeping the globe one doesn’t know what to write or not write about. 

The article that caught my eye is by Ahtayaa Leigh an acclaimed Spiritual Teacher, Energy Healer and creator of The Golden Ray Initiations. “The 2020 Timeline Jump to the New Earth” is the title of her article published on 29/03/2020 where she indicates that there are many perspectives on the Coronavirus pandemic. From the Cosmic Perspective of the Higher Self all viewpoints have validity, she’s stated.

In this transmission [from the Galactic Mayan Timekeepers and Lords of Light of the Great Central Sun] she shares how this particular virus is acting in service to heal the collective psyche, which has been trapped in fear, as part of the shift to the New Earth template of Light.

According to her at the beginning of March, a timegate was opened that connects us all, the awakened and the non-awakened, through a common cause that unites all humanity. This common cause has been called the Coronavirus. The clue is in the name. Corona means crown. Whilst the virus is very real at the physical level, and proper precautions must, of course, be taken, the clue to the real underlying effects are in the Crown chakra. The energetic virus that has been revealed is that which has infected the psyche of humanity for thousands of years. It’s an energetic virus that has kept humanity ignorant of their true universal connection and origins. The amazing opportunity we now have is to cleanse and heal this energetic virus, clearing the connection between the Crown and the Heart, and the Crown and the Universal Mind. When energy is able to flow freely between the Earth, humanity and the Universal Source all illusion is dissolved and Truth is clearly seen and felt by All.

Because of this timegate opening and the availability of the cosmic frequencies on the Earth plane, the 144 encoded Emissaries of Light are for the first time able to transmit the cosmic energies of ascension directly into the energetic psyche of those who have yet to awaken. With great Divine Grace and Power the frequencies of unconditional love, kindness, compassion, and harmony are more rapidly than ever before clearing the distortions of fear and separation that have infected the collective psyche.

As one of these Emissaries of Light it is vital for you to stay centered and calm in your core, fulfilling your mission to be a beacon for peace, balance and harmony, regardless of your outer conditions. Know this… You are exactly who you meant to be, and you are exactly where you are meant to be. Have absolute faith that Divine Grace will take care of you because this is the Truth. Surrender into the arms of your Earth Mother and let Her bring you home.

We are literally standing at the crossroads of time, each of us with a choice to make. Do you choose fear, panic, and anger or do you choose love, peace, and calm? The latter will align you with the energetic pathway of the New Earth and the former will keep you locked in the old paradigm.

It’s important to understand that at this stage of the mass awakening it is not necessary for all those you know and love, family and friends, to know exactly what is happening from the higher perspective of the ascension process. This is not the time to try to convert others or convince them of anything.

The service that is required of you at this time is to be the change, be the love, be the calm, be the peace, be the compassion and show it through your acts of kindness. Be the true Emissary of Light that you are, an example of the New Earth we are shifting into.

Your number one priority is to support your community. Help those around you stay calm. Show loving kindness to all, extending to the global community. Watch as that loving kindness spreads faster than any virus, infecting all with the higher frequencies of Cosmic Love.

This is the time to chop wood and carry water. Find joy in the little things. Appreciate the simplicity of life. This will all help ground these cosmic energies.

Our whole lives have been building to this moment, and the changes are only going to accelerate and continue to be revealed in miraculous ways. Take note of how quickly the world joined together to adjust to the news of the virus, affecting our collective behaviour in ways that left no one untouched.

Now, integrate the Truth that the shift to cosmic consciousness can and will happen just as quickly. This is just the first stage of a process that will continue to accelerate. There’s no stopping us now! Love has won!

Take this moment of global quietude to connect with the Universal Source and the core of Mother Earth from your heart, channeling the sweet surrender, compassion, love, peace and harmony that you came here to be. Feel the love of our Mother and Father flow through you, cleansing every part of your being.

Your power is greater than it has ever been, and the support you have from the loving beings of Light that guide you is immense. The Love surrounding you extinguishes all fear. Have faith in that. Call Divine Grace into your life through your heart and know that you are safe, secure, loved and locked into the New Earth frequencies of joy, love, and compassion. Feel the cosmic frequencies of Unity flow through you, as you.

Thank you Coronavirus, for providing this timegate opening that has connected all beings, allowing us all to jump to the New Earth timeline of Cosmic Consciousness.

I must admit for the first time ever this one article stands out as I feel somehow relieved and accepting of the situation we all are facing now. There’s a bit of acceptance that this was meant to be. Lessons have to be learned while we prepare ourselves for future awakenings.

Reiki Love & Light
