THE REIKI PRINCIPLES
Just for today… I will not worry
Just for today… I will not anger
Just for today… I will be grateful
Just for today… I will do my work honestly
Just for today… I will be kind to every living being
The words just for today bring you into the present moment to help you focus on these principles in the now. You won’t do it tomorrow, or you aren’t doing it yesterday, your sacred practice happens now.
Metta is the sanskrit word for benevolence, loving-kindness, friendship, compassion.
This principle means to care and wish well for another being without judgment. To accept them independently or agree to disagree with them. It also means giving freely or allowing them to be who they are without ever wanting anything in return.
This energy is a universal love that can overcome all barriers created in the human mind.
THE FIVE SUTRAS OF THE AQUARIAN AGE
By Yogi Bhajan
Recognize that the other person is you.
Every being on the planet shares a common starting point. It is from this energy that each of us is born from. This is the energy on oneness. We are not separate, we are continuous with one another.
There is a way through every block.
As you begin to see this sutra in your life you will see how limitless life truly is. Every challenge, failure or perceived setback is an opportunity for growth. Surrender to this energy and let go. Have faith that the divine will carry you through to the other side.
Understand through compassion or you will misunderstand the times.
When you understand that every being is a part of the unlimited and infinite source or energy you will begin to practice this sutra. We all suffer in some way and every living being deserves non-judgment and compassion - we are all in this together. Compassion is the strength of the Aquarian Age.
When the time is on you, start, and the pressure will be off.
This is a simple sutra. Just Begin. It is easy to get in our head and get overwhelmed by everything that we have to do or want to do that is in front of us. Don’t procrastinate or quit, just begin.
Vibrate with the cosmos, Cosmos shall clear the path.
Another way to look at this is to align yourself with the energy of source. The constant loving frequency that is available to us at every moment. Our thoughts, words and actions all have a vibration to them and we can use this to support our dream and bring it closer to us. Vibrate at a high frequency to bring in the energy of love, compassion, kindness, acceptance, peace, prosperity, pleasure and so much more. Co-create with the divine cosmos to align with your highest good.
GIVE BACK WHEN YOU CAN
“When the power of many come together to form the power of one, a movement begins that can change the world.” - David Stirling
Giving back is in my opinion a necessity to the work we do. Acts of service are never wasted and helping others is a beautiful way of saying to the creator “Thank you for every living being”
Everything I do has a backbone of giving back through charitable organizations. Healing hands, Friends with Heart, Operation Underground Railroad, Together Rising, The Red Box Project, Hotel Casa Maria, Lincoln County Humane Society are just some of the many I have given my time and energy back into. If you have a non-profit that can align with the work I do, please reach out and tell me!
