Hello Beacon, and welcome to this week’s Upshifting Vlog!
My mission throughout my vlogs is to inspire you to uplift yourself, to uplift your spirit, and to elevate yourself energetically, so you can live from an uplifted place. When you live from an uplifted place, things that bothered you before don’t bother you anymore, and you get a different perspective on life. Once you raise your vibration, you attract opportunities, abundance, and good vibes.
I want to talk to you about one of the most amazing ways to uplift yourself and to raise your vibration: Reiki.
I tried to think about the three main reasons that each person in this universe should learn Reiki. There are so many reasons and so many benefits that it was really hard for me to narrow it down to just three!
I was thinking about this last weekend when I was hosting a workshop that was open to our Reiki community. We have more than 1,300 people now who have gone through our training. And it was just wonderful to hear people share their stories about how Reiki has changed their lives, to see the energy shift on their faces, and to notice how they feel and look different.
I left the workshop feeling so grateful and wishing there was a way to take those stories—the good vibes and the energy that we shared in this workshop—and spread it all over the world.
As you know, images speak louder than words, so I chose three pictures from this workshop and thought it would be fun to use them to explain the top three benefits of learning to give Reiki to yourself and others.
The Top Three Benefits of Reiki
Benefit One of Reiki
Meet Katy and Sally. I hope that you can sense the “all is well” feeling coming across in this picture. You can really see it on Katy’s face, and Sally is clearly extremely peaceful and present in the moment.
One of the biggest gifts of Reiki is that it helps you to be fully present in the moment and also to bounce back to a place of “all is well.” So if you’re having a bad day or you’re facing some challenges that, for example, make you feel overwhelmed with fear, anxiety, or worry, you have a tool that can bring you back to a state of peacefulness.
There’s no equipment needed. Just by laying your hands on your body, on your energy centers, you can tap into pure universal energy to restore yourself to calmness. All we have is this moment, and we have the ability to be present. This is the first reason why you should consider learning to give Reiki to yourself.
Benefit Two of Reiki
The next picture features Jen and Shiraz. This picture really represents another benefit of Reiki, which is helping you to tap into your intuition.
Here’s the important thing about intuition: Intuition is not a gift. Intuition is a skill, and it can be developed. But you need to have some tools to help you trust and listen.
Shiraz and Jen are practicing one of the Reiki techniques that helps you to tap into your intuition. And, again, look at their faces and see how centered and calm they are.
Regardless of what’s going on around you, even if you’re in a chaotic place or a very stressful situation, you can simply place your hands in a Reiki position and tap into the universal energy. Then you can tap into your intuition, listen, and make decisions. It’s such a powerful tool.
Benefit Three of Reiki
Let’s look at the next and last picture. This is a Reiki circle, a Reiki share. People are coming together as a community to share Reiki.
How about you?
What are some ways that you share your light and your gifts with the world?
Here is why it is important: There’s so much negativity around us—shootings, crime, and world disasters—and it’s so easy to get sucked into all the negativity. But I believe that serving and contributing to the world in a positive way is your mission, just like it’s my mission, because you’re a Beacon. If you want to serve and to contribute, you have to continuously connect with your light so you can share it with the world in a bigger way.
The best way to do so is to support and be supported by like-minded people. There was so much power, vibration, and energy in this circle that we did last weekend. The energy expanded. We sent light and unconditional love to the world, and it was super powerful doing it in community. With technology, we can create Reiki circles from anywhere—even when we’re not in the same room.
Think about ways that you can connect with like-minded people so you can share your light in a bigger way.
I’ll summarize the top three benefits of Reiki—the reasons that you should consider learning to give Reiki to yourself and others—in this way:
- Create good vibes. You know the phrase “good vibes only.” That should be something that you’re shifting into all the time, and Reiki helps you do that.
- Listen to your intuition. Once you start giving Reiki to yourself, you are able to bring your intuition to life.
- Share your light in a bigger way. You are meant to share your light in a bigger way, and the best way to do it is through the support of a community of like-minded people.
I hope that I have inspired you to consider learning Reiki. You can look for a class in your area where you live, or you can take a class with us.
The online class, which I teach myself, is a very powerful experience. We meet through video in a small group. It’s exactly the same as the in-person class, but you can take it from the comfort of your own home. In only six hours, you learn how to tap into Reiki so you can enjoy all the benefits of giving Reiki to yourself and sharing it with others.
Beacon, I want you to know this message is really coming from my heart.
I am not here to sell a class.
I’m here to invite you to expand, to share your light in a bigger way. To learn a tool that can make a difference in your life and in the lives of the people around you. Once you learn to give Reiki to yourself, it becomes your daily practice, and you can share it with your family members (including your children!), friends, and even your pets.
That’s how we, together as Beacons, share our light in a bigger way.
Learn more about our in-person classes in Atlanta and New York and our live online class that is coming very soon. And I really hope to see you in one of our classes.
