The 3rd Principle of Reiki
The 3rd Principle of Reiki is: Just for today, I will be
This principle is seemingly a bit easier to realize and
exercise than some of the others. But what is being grateful? What does gratitude mean to you?
Gratitude can be just as simple as saying thank you,
smiling, saying good words, appreciating the simple things we often take for granted, or forgiveness. Gratitude can improve the lives of others, which in
turn, heals our hearts and others'.
The most important aspect to remember about Gratitude is intention. It is our inner intention that matters most and will effect how our Gratitude is perceived. When we open our hearts and nurish the Spirit of Love in a pure way, it brings joy not only to our Spirits but those that we love as well.
To activate the Principle of Gratitude within ourselves we can take a second out of our busy days, and with one breath - open our hearts, and quickly scan all of the good things in our lives and what we are thankful for. Take a second to deeply appreciate what we have been given and reflect on how these positive things effect our lives. Then, it's up to you if and how you want to show your appreciation and love towards others!
I am deeply grateful for my children, husband, family, friends, experiences, awareness, connection with God, love, breath of life, and opportunities to share miracles with others. They are the Light during times of darkness. All else falls to the side when I concentrate on what I am truly grateful for in this Life. They fill my heart with joy, raise my Spirit, and solidify my path in this lifetime.
Graditude. Awareness. Appreciation. Love.
