I AM: loathe to go into work today
I WANT: my best friend back in physical form
I WISH: I could sit outside in the sun today and just “be still”
I HATE: Neighbor Greg hacking up a lung outside every morning. Eww!
I MISS: Having bookstores close to me.
I FEAR: looking like a dork in public.
I HEAR: the sounds of birds singing and NG hacking. Talk about your two ends of the spectrum!
I WONDER: If the damage from the Bush administration can be repaired in our lifetime.
I REGRET: Snarfing all those caramel cremes last week.
I AM NOT: my mother.
I DANCE: sporadically now. And miss it. I love to dance.
I SING: to my cats. They tell me it’s “a little pitchy” heh
I CRY: when I pray because it’s from my soul and that’s the only way my body knows right now to let that energy out.
I AM NOT ALWAYS: able to put thought into action.
I MAKE WITH MY HANDS: lots of words on a computer!
I WRITE: as if I were born to it. It’s a true piece of who I really, really am.
I CONFUSE: my husband sometimes with my indecision.
I NEED: to “be still” (thanks to Dr. Usui for the reminder)
I SHOULD: clean off my dining room table
I START: each day anew, thanking the Universe for all the gifts I have and will have.
I FINISH: not a lot of what I start, sadly.
So, fun with memes! :) I enjoyed the Reiki Level 1 class this weekend. It was small – just me and one other woman with Regina (someone didn’t show). It was a good opportunity to re-learn the basics that I skimmed over the first time in my haste and excitement and also to ask all the questions I wanted of the teacher. While I treasure the free time I have over the weekends and was slightly hesitant to give 16 hours of it over to a class I’ve already taken, I know it was good for me to go and bathe myself in the waters of Reiki again. And I do love hanging with Regina. She is truly an amazing woman.
One of the messages she got from Dr. Usui (the re-discovered of Reiki) was for me to “be still”. She got another message during the attunement on Saturday from one of my guides telling me to “slow down! What’s your hurry?”. This speaks to me wanting to do it ALL, right this very minute. And while I know there’s enormous value to me to take time to walk the path slowly, my desire to bring that piece out and live it often overwhelmes me. I absorb this metaphysical stuff like a sponge but there’s a time to learn and a time to integrate. I need to do the latter, I think. So much has gone on just in the first four and a half months of this year that I need to take some time to process it and integrate the lessons before I run headlong into something else.
So, good student that I am and having the association with Dr. Usui that I do, I shall listen this time and BE STILL. Not sure exactly how to do that but know that the lesson is in finding out HOW.
Have a luffly Monday!
