The past five days have been filled with anxiety, anger and pain. Sometimes for me this has been almost disorientating and disabling. I almost don’t know what to do next as I feel held by these strong emotions.
However, I have reminded myself of the wise and helpful technique presented by my teachers, Libby Barnett and Maggie Babb. They call this technique the Reiki Resolution Technique.
The technique works as follows: If you are a Reiki practitioner, level 2, then first do the mental/emotional symbol plus the empowerment symbol. Place your hands on your heart and hold the emotion in your hands and heart. Don’t shy away from it. Don’t dismiss it. Hold the anxiety, for example, in your hands and notice what happens. (Hold it for about 5-10 minutes, with your eyes closed, your body relaxed and your breathing deep and steady.) As I have done this the past few days, I’ve observed a melting away of the emotion as it replaced by a wave of peace.
If you’re not a Reiki practitioner, you can try this technique as well. It is helpful to not turn away from our emotions but apply loving and heartfelt attention toward them. The practice of self-compassion is very important. The more compassion we create in ourselves, the more we generate this out into the world.
Try this technique and let me know how it works for you.
I will take a blogging break until after the new year. I wish for each of you a Blessed Solstice, a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year filled with love, light and peace.
