Reiki and Inner Peace

WARNING!

Long Personal Blog Post!

Who is the MOST important person in your life?

Many will say my kids or my spouse, however, YOU are THE most Important person in your life!

“One cannot help another, without first helping themselves.”

This is something that I have known for years, but I have struggled with for many years.

Anyone who knows me, knows that I have a very hard time saying NO.

However, for some reason, I tell myself NO when I shouldn’t and then I struggle with trying to make everyone happy.

Sadly, by trying to make everyone else happy, I am not happy and I have struggling to make it seem as  I am.

I know that some will not be happy with me with my decision to put myself first, but I cannot let it bother me.

In my journey to wellness, I have been learning more and more about myself and how I work on the inside.

As I learn how I tick, I am discovering that I MUST take time for myself in order to be able to help others in the way that I want and need in my nursing career.

I have to STOP taking on more than I can handle and start stepping back to be able to have inner peace inside myself instead of a constant struggle.

I am the type to take on too much and then let myself suffer due to not being able to have downtime for myself and my family.

I have spent the last 5 years pursuing my nursing degree and I am now working on getting my state board license so I can begin my career as an RN.

Thankfully, I have discovered Reiki (pronounced ray-kee) and I have become a Second Degree Reiki Practitioner.

Through my journey of learning Reiki, I have started to rebalance my energy and I am no longer tolerant to negative energy.

The world has far too much negative energy and I am doing what I can to avoid any and ALL negative things in my life.

As my journey continues, my goal is to be able to bring Reiki into the lives of others to help them find their inner peace.

To bring myself back into alignment, I MUST detach myself from things that are no longer beneficial for my mind, body, and soul.

In doing this detachment, I am embarking on a social media detox for a minimum of 21 days while I rebalance my energy.

I will continue to journal my experiences as I rebalance my energy, however, it will not be a daily practice.

Instead, I am going to begin a daily practice of taking care of myself by meditating, performing self reiki, spending time outside, and enjoying my family.

While I take on this part of my wellness journey, I will continue to pray and send healing energy to my family and friends.

If you are feeling lost and unconnected in your life, I invite you to embark in finding what makes you tick.

I also would like to encourage you to get outside, go for nice walk or find a quite place to take in the beauty of our world around us.

Sunday’s

Sunday’s should be for rest and reflection.

Life is hectic and it seems that I never have enough time to do everything that I want or need to do. Yet, on Sunday’s I try to take a little time for myself to relax and unwind, as well as reflect on the week that has just ended. Some weeks are crazier than others and I always enjoy being able to sleep in a little on Sunday mornings when I can. Life as I know it is about to get even crazier as my new nursing program is about to begin, but until it does I am going to enjoy my last 2 Sunday mornings to the best of my ability!

Sunday’s are my day to remember why we do what we do!

Last Sunday we mowed and opened up the side pastures for the boys to graze!

Today I have enjoyed myself by sleeping in and lounging in my PJs’ most of the day. I did make homemade fruit and nut bars, which I will blog about at a later time once I get them perfected! Being the avid DIY’er I am always trying new recipes that I can tweak and make my own! Today’s treats are drying in the oven as I type and the cinnamon in them is making my tummy hungry!!! 🙂

My wish for you today is to enjoy your Sunday and reflect on your week!

Today you are you! That is truer than true! There is no one alive who is you-er than you!

Peace! Love! & Hugs!
