What is your first thought when you accidentally bump against something and hurt yourself?

Mine often is telling myself off for not paying attention, for not being careful or present, wishing it had not happened, wishing for the pain to go away and soon…

Today as I bumped against a door handle and felt pain, a thought flashed – what if my body wants me to bring attention to the inner intelligence to heal in this moment! It felt as if I was being given this invaluable gift of bringing attention to the inner intelligence of the body and I had been wishing the experience away! I felt grateful for being able to choose what I give attention to in such moments for I know that what I give attention to – grows.

If you have learnt Reiki already, the art of healing, next time you are giving yourself a Reiki treatment by simply letting your hands rest on your body, you could play with letting your attention rest on the intelligence of the body to heal itself.

If you would like to learn Reiki, you are welcome to contact me. I teach Reiki in-person, mainly in North London, Islington, Highbury. But I am happy to travel if you would like to invite me.

I learnt Reiki in 2001. I continue to be amazed by this practice. The simplicity of it and yet how powerful the benefits can be for oneself and our loved ones. At times, I still can’t believe how fortunate I am/we are to be blessed with Reiki.
