This month's principle is:
"GIVE THANKS FOR MY BLESSINGS AND ALL LIVING THINGS"
In next Months' Newsletter, we will explore the world of Meditation
"Be thankful for the many blessings" Before giving a Reiki treatment we can say a prayer, a "thank you" to life itself for being used as a channel for healing. We are not separate from other living beings but interconnected through Universal Life Energy--humans, animals and plants. Being aware of this, we allow compassion and love to come into our lives. This is what gratitude means. It is another form of love, compassion and respect for one another.
In this day and age we tend to take so much for granted; but there are many things in life, both big and small, to be grateful for: our own body, our health, good food, the beauty of nature, or the joy of a child. If we become more aware of how precious and spontaneous life is, we can appreciate situations as gifts from God. We can appreciate life itself and existence and we can feel grateful for each new event in the sense of "Thy will be done". Then the whole of life becomes a prayer
