Love is in the air…

 

February, my leas319894f5-4df9-49f5-86a8-be316d8cf08bt favourite month of the year, with its dark cold days. New Year’s resolutions have long bitten the dust and the weather doesn’t help diminish the gloom of failure.

Its only saving grace is that it is supposedly the month of LOVE, with Valentine’s day bang in the middle. Which is fine if you are all loved up and feeling romantic and have the funds to splurge on over priced tat for those special people in your life. For the less fortunate it can feel a bit like a slap in the face, flaunting the world of coupledom, when yet again you are sat at home alone watching whatever slushy movie has been served up this year.

But, why should Valentine’s Day just be for couples? All of us have people in our lives that we love, whom we rely on and who rely on us, who make every day better. Why not show them how much they mean to you? It doesn’t have to be a big expensive gesture, a cup of tea when they least expect it, a listening ear, a hug, a text to say hello and that you are thinking of them.

Be kind to others, the fifth Reiki principle doesn’t have to be hard, but we get caught up in own lives and forget sometimes that we are included in that. We should be kind to ourselves too. So, this Valentine’s Day take the time you need for yourself, to read, meditate, soak in the bath, or to connect with others. If you feel good it is far easier to give to others.

Wishing you all Love, Light and Laughter this Valentine’s Day.

Do not Worry…

How difficult is this precept? When do we not worry about the happenings in our lives? Our loved ones, our jobs, our friends, money? Especially at this time of the year with Christmas looming and its associated expenses, it seems it also the time of year when our heating or cars are likely to go wrong and cost us extra just when we don’t need it.

I have bills coming out my ears at the moment and from an income point of view it’s a slow couple of months as people put aside money for Christmas and in January take stock of their lives and either decide to get to grip with their debts or save money. I will admit that it is difficult not to worry about my finances and where the money is going to come from.

Today, I sat down and worked out a budget and I am going to try very hard not to overspend on that budget. I have meditated and sent Reiki to the situation and will continue to do so for the coming days. Reiki has helped me solve other problems in my life and so I trust too that it will help with this and in the meantime…

(I will try) not to worry

If you are a client of mine, I have a special Christmas offer up my sleeve to help you during the coming season, please email or text for details. 🙂

Diligence

Being a contender for an Olympic Gold in Procrastination diligence in my work has always been a hard one for me. There are so many books to read, website links to follow and new music to listen to that I can happily while away the hours and produce absolutely nothing worthwhile.

I work best to deadlines, particularity externally imposed ones, so I have been trying to set some for myself and to stick to them. I have various ongoing projects at the moment and we are redecorating and decluttering the house.The redecorating bit is on target to finished next weekend, the main reason for this being that I had help for a specific number of days so I had to clear and clean the rooms ready for them to be decorated. All well so far except the clutter is now residing in various mounds around the house, and this where I fail in my diligence, the job is only part done.

So today I am setting a deadline for myself to have got rid of it all, giving to charity, taken to the rubbish tip or otherwise disposed of by next weekend.

This week as part of living the Reiki principles I have set aside time to work out what needs doing this week in terms of housework, including aforementioned decluttering, finances, getting children ready for return to college and general day to day stuff made a list and set myself time limits. So far I have I have stuck to it an am feeling rather accomplished. (I know it is still only Tuesday! :roll:)

What are you hoping to accomplish this week?
