Last month I’ve mentioned that all my personal practices completely merged into one. They are now all indivisible pieces of the same practice to bring out the “Divine within”.
For a long time I saw these practices as separate ones. They all served a specific purpose for me. I always used yoga as my home base though. I had my yoga asana practice to keep physical well-being, meditation for increasing awareness and a calm mind and I used my dedicated meditation path, which is simple, pure, that takes me to the core of it all, to lift me up. I used yama/niyamas as my ethical precepts and yoga philosophy to feed my soul. Then Reiki came into my life. At first I thought of Reiki as a tool to cultivate compassion. Then I realized the potential of Reiki as a complete spiritual practice and it quickly rose in ranks. It was helping me align to myself to my true self and balancing me and opening my heart.
Over years these practices interacted and mingled one another. I started seeing the similarities and how these practices all support each other. After all they were all tools for an enlightened mind, cultivating happiness, joy, peace, well-being physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
On Sunday October 16th, I’ll talk about on how these different practices interact and mingle with each other, keeping the base as Reiki as a spiritual self-development path.
More to come next months, on how Yoga and Reiki relates to each other :-)
