“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
– Margaret Mead
If Reiki is widely practiced throughout the world, can it save us from the suffering that is so common to our human existence? I think the answer is, “yes,” in some important ways. Reiki can be a catalyst for change in our personal lives which can lead to significant change in how we interact with others. When we experience the healing that Reiki can bring about in our minds, bodies, and spirit, we are able to move forward with positive action. Bringing these positive acts into the world helps to create a world filled with love and light rather than darkness and pain.
When we experience Reiki, we often feel very empowered because we have connected with Source (aka, the Universe, the Spiritual realm, etc.). Connecting with Source, helps us to feel grounded and supported. When we feel safe, connected, relaxed, and healthy, we are able to bring our personal gifts to the world which makes the world a better place.
Some people might say that Reiki cannot save the world because it is too mysterious and superficial. In part they are correct because it is not Reiki alone that will save the world but the collective positive actions of individuals working to make the world a better place. Reiki is here to support each of us in saving the world.
This simple, calming, and supportive practice can make the world a better place. Imagine a world where people are calm, centered, connected, healthy, and supported. Isn’t this a world where we can eradicate poverty, hunger, and hatred?
