Not In India

When the Shoe Doesn’t Fit

imagesHave you ever fallen in love with a shoe you saw in a store window only to find that when you tried it on it didn’t fit?  Was so uncomfortable that it was painful to slide your foot into it.  But because you loved it so much, you bought it anyway, figuring you could “break it in” over time? That if you wore it long enough it would come to suit your foot?
My ex understood long before I did that if the shoe doesn’t fit, no matter how much you love it and want to enjoy wearing it, it will never be possible and will only bring discomfort, pain and misery each time you try to wear it again.  No matter how or what you try to do to make it more comfortable, to fit better, it doesn’t work.  You can put it back…

Reiki in the Digital Age – A Virtual Reiki Box!

It’s been quite some time since I’ve posted on this blog…most of my current posts finding their way to my Not in India Blog at Not In India or of course my India Journals when I find myself in India at: My India Journals

But something has come along which suits this blog perfectly.

I haven’t written anything new about my Reiki adventures for some time as well, but here is the perfect place to present this lovely new idea to you.

If you have been working with Reiki for any length of time, you are most probably familiar with the concept of a Reiki Box for long distance healing work, when requests from several or even many people are involved.  I have always had a special container into which I place all requests for long distance healing and then can conveniently just Reiki the entire contents of the box a couple of times a day.  And it is something small enough to easily carry around with me.  Inside I simply place a hand written note which I write myself for certain requests, but generally prefer that the person requesting the healing energies do his own part and take responsibility for the healing, by sending me a written request by email with as many details as possible regarding the request.  Even a photo if the healing is for a third party who I do not know. I can then print out the email and place it into the Reiki Box.

So , following that idea, today I came up with a modern version of the Reiki Box which I love for a couple of very practical reasons.  Number one:  It saves paper!!  Always a concern in this day and age.  Secondly, I don’t have to carry anything additional around with me that I normally wouldn’t  .  So, what is this magical new idea which came to me?

Using any sort of digital device which is with you at all times these days (your IPad, IPhone, Galaxy etc., smartphone, or in my case my new tablet since MY smartphone is not all that smart!!)…   I simply set up a folder called Reiki Box, and collect in it all the requests.  They can be notes which I have handwritten on the notepad, or copies of emails people have sent to me, but without having to print any of them on actual paper.  And then of course, I simply Reiki the folder,same as I would the actual box.  It is so easy as these devices, especially the phone, is something which everyone now carries with them, and both energy and time saving as well.

Hope you like this idea….would love to hear your comments.  I still haven’t figured out how to move the folder from My Documents to the actual Home Page, but it is simple enough to access when I need it so no big deal.  If anyone out there knows how to put an icon for the folder on the Home Page, I’d love to hear from you. Mine is an android tablet if that helps

Happy digital reiki long distance healing to all!!  🙂
