I am sitting here watching a really good movie,… Home of the Brave… about 3 soldiers who return from the war having to continue life like there was nothing wrong. Traumatized and wounded souls… Dealing with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
Everyone has some form of PTSD. It takes part in forming our belief system. We all have had some form of traumatization that feeds our belief system and we think it is a part of who we are. These thought processes… as a result, can limit us in how we relate to others… how we relate to ourselves…, how we relate to life in general. And we think such is life,… but there is a cross road for every issue that arises… we can either choose to play the victim or we can choose to empower our self and learn from the situation. Living our life and learning.
When we choose to be the victim… we are letting life happen to us and we think there is nothing we can do about it. We are like a helpless beach ball in the middle of the choppy waves in the ocean. Feeling very helpless, out of control and chaotic. As a result we get anxiety, develop sleep disorders, get depressed, and our body takes on unexplained growths, aches and pains. We have a sense of what’s the use?
Trauma sits in our cellular memory until it is energetically released. When we have trauma happen to us, our body remembers that emotion behind it. We can feel a sense of abandonment when we are 6 mos. old. and it can bring up abandonment issues with our spouse when we are married. It can be 20 years later and if the situation triggers similarities it will set off those same emotions as when the incident first happened. It is intense… it can paralyze us creating undesirable situations that leave us wondering why did I react so intensely?
Taking pharmaceutical drugs will help fix the situation temporarily. But it doesn’t help the body to heal. It doesn’t help us to get to the root of the problem so that we can become aware of what is causing our current situation. It is our underlying emotions sitting there triggering our body to react in illness, either in our thoughts or physically with ailments that needs releasing.
REIKI helps release that trauma from the cellular memory. Reiki gives us that HOPE we need to get through our limitations. Reiki gives us the calm that we need in order to respond rather then react to the situations around us. It prevents us from going into the victim role.
Reiki empowers us. When we feel empowered, we look to create happy, healthy relationships with everyone. In our personal life as well as our business life. We want to create WIN/WIN situations so that everyone comes out of this empowered. We want to make the world a better place.
Our purpose is to be who we are. Who are we? Do we take the time to find that out? Reflect? Understand ourselves? What are my likes and dislikes? Once we feel comfortable in our own skin and fill up our own cups….can we then make a difference in other people’s lives.
It’s a process,… be gentle with yourself, and learn to love your humanness, it will keep us humble, after all, we don’t have to be perfect.
Loving who we are, shows us how to love others… doing it with an open heart.
Happy Sunday afternoon!
