Can reiki bring good luck or happiness? This is a good question worth contemplating and exploring.
We need to think what “good luck” and “happiness” mean to you, and what makes people happy and are the true measures of people’s happiness.
What is true happiness?
I ask this question, because over the years I’ve come to realize that what appears to be “bad luck” including stress and illnesses, which may be the cause of “unhappiness”, may actually be the result of unhappiness.
As the saying goes “everything is mental”, if you have the healthy mental attitude toward yourself and other around you, your body will also reflect that positive attitude and become healthy. On the other hand, if you are always negative and critical about yourself and your surroundings, your body will most likely reflect that negativity and your health may deteriorate.
But furthermore, experiencing an illness may actually lead to deeper discoveries of oneself, and that discovery could very well include gratitude for your given circumstances and happiness.
Everything happens for a reason
As I’ve written on my “About me” page, back in 2004 I was struck by an acute stress which resulted in tightness in my throat and I had trouble breathing for several days. This shocking incident led me to think seriously about my health and rethink about my lifestyle, which then led me to reiki.
Reiki opened my eyes to a whole new world of healthy living, which also brought peace of mind and gratitude of being born, being alive and being without pain or suffering.
I’ve come to believe that every illness happens for a reason, and when we come to face that illness and try to understand the cause(s) of it, we then become more humble, grateful and happy.
So the question “can reiki bring good luck or happiness” is a good question, because the answer can be yes or no. Reiki, as it has for me, can restore health and bring happiness, but only because I decided to look into the causes behind my stress and do something about it.
Had I not investigated deep within myself, I may still be suffering from severe stress and may even be taking medication for it. Instead, I have resorted to healthier lifestyle, including regular maintenance of myself both physically and mentally such as diet, exercises and meditation.
So I think reiki has a lot to offer, a whole new world in fact, but it is up to you to take a step forward to listen to your inner self and discover the new world.
