The 2nd Principle of Reiki
How can I incorporate this 2nd principle in my modern day life?
We can can empower this statement and bring it into action in our lives by stating, "I release thoughts of worry from my mind."
Neal Harris, a liscensed clinical professional counsler, RMT IARP, and managing director of Relax4Life, suggests that we think about the times of day that we engage in worry and see if we can recognize the worry that lives inside us. Dive into this feeling and ponder these questions...Am creating a situation where I am worrying about a future event that hasn't even happened yet? Is is possible that this event may NOT affect me in a negative way or have a negative emotional impact on me if I do not have this worry energy inside me already? If your answer is yes, then it is necessary to concentrate on flushing out this "worry energy" so that you may be able to function freely, without any emotional anxiety, and enjoy that future event to the fullest.
How do I flush out this "worry energy"?
~Talking to a friend or therapist
~Reiki-A wonderfully proven technique that helps release stagnant worry energy. Reiki energy bursts up the worry emotion and transform this energy to helping and healing energy for growth.
~Mental Visualization-Here is one techniqe that is effective in draining negative energy while grounding you at the same time:
Stand with you feet firmly planted. Imagine large thick tree roots, rooting into the ground. Close your eyes and envision a beautiful white light surrounding your entire being. With a few large breaths, envision all of your worry and tension draining down your body-starting from your head and working it's way down to your feet-with every exhale. Feel and see the worry and anxiety drain down into those large tree roots, emptying away from your body and energy field. Continue to do this as many times as necessary, until you feel relaxed, in control, and free of the "worry energy." If you are religious or spiritual, ask whatever Deity you are comfortable with to bless and protect this beautiful white bubble you are in and help transform this new energy into healing energy of growth. You are now more equipped to face whatever event you have coming without the worry to accompany it.
Enjoy life's moments to the fullest, without the burden of worry.
