In my experience, nothing provides a fast acting sense of peace as well as feeding a baby. Probably because I’m picking up on the baby’s emotions, like I was with one of the twins this morning. One second he was a bit distressed, wondering where his next meal was coming from (I presume, it’s been a long time since I was that age), the next second he was sucking hungrily on a bottle, and all the tension was gone from his body. I had a similar reaction. It’s so simple. No meditation, no affirmation, no calling in. You just let it happen.
So anyway boss, that’s why I was late for work this morning.
My Reiki master advised us to keep Reiki simple, don’t overcomplicate it. I’m thinking that some of the rituals we use after attunement to refresh the flow of Reiki in ourselves are, at least in part, techniques that allow me to get out of my own way. Sometime I can feel as clogged as a neglected rain gutter from emotional and psychological debris accumulated over the years Even a powerful river can be impeded by blockage. For me, the ideal is to wash all that debris away and let Reiki flow as simply and effortlessly as the feeling I get from feeding a baby.
