Is it all about the money?

My focus on Reiki was a curiosity to learn more about a relaxing and energy healing modality.  I enjoyed going to Reiki sessions.

Maybe I could turn something I enjoy receiving into something I can enjoy giving to others.  Oh.  But there is a catch.  I should make money at it.  Right?  In today’s world of entrepreneurial spirit, the goal is to expand and be more productive and make more money.

House renovations

Vacations

Shoes

Feel more successful.

I took my level one Reiki a year ago.  I have not shared it much with anyone.  At first I offered off hand to friends but with reserve and fear creeping into the offer.  It is hard to put myself out there.  It feels a little weird.  Offering my hands as comfort and healing to others is a big gift to share.  I was too scared to schedule any sessions.

Even my self practice has been sporadic lately.  Recently I went to a meditation and reiki morning.  It felt so good to connect with my centre again.  There were others who like me are just learning and came out to practice and share with those that are more experienced.

The whirling winds of my life slowed for just enough time to connect with a deep sense of calm and peace.

Baby steps.  Maybe feeling successful is not about bulldozing ahead but hanging out with the calm breeze and first regaining my own practice.

I need to start from my centre and it is then not about making money.  Shoes, vacations, and renovations are luxuries to enjoy, don’t get me wrong  The goal though is to share a gift.  A gift of stillness in the midst of busy-ness.

And that is truly a gift I could share.
