This is something we would all benefit from doing, but how many of us actually do it? I’m not talking about stopping whatever it is we are doing at a certain moment and doing something-else or ‘vegging out’, I mean stopping and actually taking a moment. Now before you say you never have the time, I mean a moment, just that and we can all do that no matter how busy we are. Look at your surroundings at that time and think of nothing-else but what you see, hear, smell and feel at that moment. Sound a bit ‘whoo-whoo’? It’s not, it’s letting our mind and body breathe for a while, resting and just being, without having to concentrate or stress about anything at all.
You may not find this easy to do at first but persevere, you will find it easier to do in time and you will even look forward to taking that moment. You will start to see and feel the benefits after a while, for your body, your mind and your attitude to things you are thinking and doing. It really is like a breath of fresh air and will rejuvenate and reinvigorate you. This is where Reiki comes into its own. It enables us to experience ‘that moment’ and lets our minds and bodies take that all important breath, passing it on to others too. Dr. Mikao Usui (the founder of Reiki as Natural Healing) taught the importance of the healthy balance of the mind and body, resulting in a healthy spirit.
Taking a moment just to be you, as you are, is important to your health and well-being. It feeds the body and the soul and will result in a happier, calmer you. Try it, you’ll soon find yourself effortlessly slipping into that moment daily and you know what, you’re worth it – enjoy!
