I have been practising meditation for over ten years now and have reached a point in my spiritual journey where I feel peaceful almost all the time. Yes, I do feel stress because that is what happens when you live in the modern world. My husband is facing redundancy and job insecurity, and because he is the main income provider in our family, that is cause for concern. My eye condition is ever present, and mostly painful, but I manage it. And then there is the challenge of raising children and keeping our home and garden in some semblance of order and tidiness.
Today I will visit my local reiki group for some healing and support. It is a safe, comfortable space where I can relax and forget about the daily worries, if only for a couple of hours.
It restores my mind to calm if I succumb to the anxiety that my husband feels. It helps me to cope with his depression and to remain supportive for our family, to the best of my ability. I still get wound up and shout at the children sometimes, but I am only human. I apologise when I am in the wrong, and they always know that they are loved and safe at home.
And always there is my reiki energy healing. I am surrounded by love and light, and I am love and light. And I share this with you today, if you need it. Blessed be.
