Happy New Year to you all!
Our dear friend Tony organizes a “Distant Reiki Experiment” every year to help Reiki practitioners charge their goals for the New Year. It’s that time again. You are all invited to participate in this experiment to charge your goals for 2011 with Reiki!. This year’s event is scheduled for Sunday January 2nd at 3pm EST. To sign up and get the instructions click: http://www.distantreikiexperiment.org/You can still participate if you don’t sign up. At 3 pm on Sunday, please use the following statement of intent during whatever process you choose to send Reiki so we can all focus the energy in the same direction: “I would like to send pure Reiki Energy to fully and completely empower and manifest each goal posted to the Distant Reiki Experiment's website; and to heal and empower every practitioner participating in this event as well as the Earth.“
May all your wishes come true...!
As in every January Newsletter, I’d like to share some tips on how you can create your resolutions and send Reiki for their materialization. Manifesting a reality starts with clear intentions (remember Secret: The Law of Attraction). What you focus on, you attract to your life.
Ø Express your New Year resolution with clarity. Instead of saying “I want to be happy”, define happiness. Say “I want a new job that will bring my highest potential” or “I want to be in a relationship where we can share and grow together”. In stead of “I want a new car” say the model and the color and add any other details as possible. This shows how clear you are with your goal.
Ø Always use positive statements in current tense. Instead of saying “I don’t want to be sick”, say “I am completely healthy”.
Ø Visualize yourself as already accomplished your wish or resolution, i.e. you can visualize yourself at the front yard of your dream home, at the office, or in a loving relationship. Visualize as many details as you can.
Ø Think about what emotions you’d have when you accomplish your goal. Add that emotion to your vision. Feel the breeze of the ocean or sand in the beach, warmness of the sun in your face when you’re in your dream vacation. Feel the joy, the happiness, the contentment of accomplishing your goal.
Ø To empower your goals with Reiki; you can simply write down your resolutions on a piece of paper or visualize it.
Ø Activate Reiki by saying an intention or affirmation like “I’m opening myself to Reiki”. Feel the gentle current of Reiki.
Ø If you know Reiki symbols use them at this time. If you are using visualization, beam Reiki to the image as if it’s in a screen in front of you. If you prefer to write it down, take the piece of paper into your palms and provide Reiki.
Ø Send Reiki to the image or to the paper for 5-10 minutes, or as long as you feel necessary.
Ø Well, the work starts after you send Reiki. Make an action plan and work towards your goal. I’ve just updated my personal OGSM (Objectives, Goals, Strategies and Measures) and I’d be glad to work with you individually if you’d like to create yours. This is a tool I’ve adapted from corporate world. It starts with having a vision, mission, achievable goals, and measurable targets for your goals. It works amazingly!
Ø It’s also very important to prepare yourself for your goal and bring your surrounding conditions ready for the materialization of your wish, i.e. check internet resources for healthy diets, how to learn a new skill, etc. One thing I often do is to talk about my goals to my family and friends. The more you talk about your goals, the more you’re inspired and get closer to them. It’s also important to surround yourself with people who’ll support you and your goals.
Ø Always remember you are worth it and you deserve it!
Ø Probably the most important aspect is not to cling to the outcome. Remember it’ll be materialized only if your goal is aligned with your life plan and if it’s for your utmost good. Trust the Divine order for that.
