Today, I hosted a reiki share for people who have trained with me and one fellow who trained with another teacher. We held council around a quote by Teresa of Ávila that speaks of being the body, hands, feet, and eyes of the Divine in the world. We did hatsurei ho, the traditional energy-generating meditation, to keep our minds centred and our energy channels clear. I offered reiju, often called an attunement in the West, to all participants to help support the remembering of their awakened selves and whatever blessing they needed in the moment. Breaking into small groups, attendees offered energy treatments to one another, two practitioners on one recipient at a time. Afterwards, we enjoyed each other’s company over a pot-luck lunch.
This reiki share was a possible world in miniature. What if we kept asking ourselves how we can be the embodied Divine in our world? What if we remembered our most whole or awakened Self every day? What if we opened to offering whatever energetic and tangible blessings were needed in the moment? What if we got to know people over food and conversation? What if we offered the touch of healing to the people around us, whether or not they were known to us personally?
We’re invited to BE Reiki, to be the Divine life-force in the world. Can we hear and accept the invitation?
If you’re a Reiki practitioner and if you know of a gathering or share that you can attend, please do. Each time such a meeting takes place, the world becomes a little better.
