Today’s inspiration from Reiki Ray’s is one of my favorites…essential oils! The post recommends using rose of geranium. In an upcoming post, I’ll give more information on essential oils and pregnancy, of which rose is a good choice for pregnant women. I like to add a drop of rose my hand lotion for a mood lifter. My Monday favorites are usually in the citrus families, being lemon or orange.
The theme of the May calender from Reiki Ray’s is about self care. Self care is serious business. When we’re poor ourselves last we simply won’t be away our best.
I end up discussing this topic a lot while taking care of patients. Unfortunately, most of the diseases I treat are preventable and reversible, including Diabetes, high blood pressure, and obesity. A patient dealing with one of these needs to have a positive outlook on life and themselves in order to heal.
One way I recharge my self belief is to think of my own victories. They may be small, like connecting with a sick patient, or big, like finishing school. Tap into that feeling, not so much the end result, but the feeling on the way to the victory. Maybe that bright place can return to your heart today.
Todays Reiki Ray’s Inspiration is to be your own best friend. We all hope to have someone to confide in, but in tough times, being able to be there for yourself can be as important as being there for others.
Maybe you can treat yourself to a nice lunch, or don’t be hard on yourself, or maybe take credit for something your proud of.
Today’s inspiration from Reiki Rays is to create an affirmation for difficult times. Recently, I’ve been starting my days with a short intention. Sometimes its serious, such as “Today I keep my energetic boundaries strong”, or its short, like “Don’t run late in clinic all day”.
An affirmation can be any phrase, thought, or prayer that helps you. The real power in an affirmation is that it can be used to replace a thought or emotion that drains you.
Here are some affirmations, simply as suggestions, especially if your in a place in your life in which you may not have your own:
“I am enough”
“I Receive and Send Love”
“Love is abundant”
Happy Monday…feel free to share some of your positive affirmations.
Today’s inspiration from Reiki Rays is to slow down…I think this snail has got the idea. Most of have have to rush and move quickly, but maybe today you can enjoy a moment of too of nothing, or even delibrately take a long time to do something that takes a few seconds. Happy Sunday!
