What's sipirituality got to do with Reiki?
Updated: Apr 11, 2018
What does spirituality have to do with Reiki? You might well ask! As it happens many Reiki people I know are really spiritual. I don’t mean religious – that is something else entirely.
Spirituality, if I had to try and define it is a sense of wonder and connection with the Universe, nature and all that is around us. It can manifest as a feeling of peace while out in nature, walking on the beach, cloud watching, star gazing and enjoying the beauty of flowers. It is equally the love you give unconditionally to children and animals, lovers and yourself. Did I say love yourself? Yes! That is really important for your health and well-being. It has taken me a lifetime to realise that, so I’m telling you now, so that you can live an even better and happier life.
How do you achieve this feeling of peace and happiness, a deep contentment that pervades your life?
Start with gratitude. Be grateful for all the things in your life that bring you joy. Seek out that feeling of joy and you will attract more. This is the Law of Attraction in action. Gratitude is also one of the Reiki principles. It's a great one to live by and that is one connection between Reiki and spirituality.
This beautiful collection of flowers is at one of my favourite gardens to visit. I love walking round and admiring and enjoying the flowers that they put together. So beautiful and peaceful with the background hum of bees busy collecting pollen. Nature is wonderful and I am lucky to be able to enjoy it. I am so grateful.
