"Be Impeccable With Your Word. Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love".

Walking the Talk

September, 25th, 2019

Reiki has been in my life for around 20 years.  It found me at a time I was finding my spiritual path.  After receiving a three on one Reiki treatment at a local psychic fair I decided that I needed to find out more about this healing energy and embarked upon my training.  It was a journey of self first and foremost and my work with clients would come later.  I adored how Reiki made me feel.  I was more grounded, centered and in control of my opening psychic gifts.

I did start a Reiki practice and have had the pleasure and privilege of working with many clients (human and animal), but I still practice Reiki for me on a daily basis.  It is one of the foundational spiritual practices I have in place.

Reiki or any energy practice we are drawn to, is more than a healing modality to offer clients.  In fact, I would argue that without modelling, we are doing our clients, our work and ourselves an injustice.

I believe it is essential to continue to work on self.  To utilize the wisdom, skills and techniques we are learning to benefit ourselves first and foremost.  Without this, how can we instil in our clients an acceptance of them being responsible for their own wellness.

My students study with me for many reasons.  Some are looking to start their careers as energy workers, some wishing to augment new modalities into current practice and for some it is truly a journey of self-discovery and learning.  Whatever the reason I am resolute.  We owe it to ourselves and our clients  to 'walk the talk' and find ways to practice what we have learned for ourselves. To take responsibility for every aspect of our health - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.  

I leave you with this question.  How are you walking the talk?
