“Just for today I will experience all in complete acceptance, joy, gratitude and freedom from fear”

Every morning, during my prayer/meditation session, I repeat the 5 Reiki principles :

Just for today…

-I will not worry

-I will not get angry

-I will count my many blessings

-I will love and respect every living creature (including myself)

-I will do an honest days work (on myself)

*scroll down to the end of the post for links to further information and articles re: the above

Over the past year I have been guided during a loving channeling session, to add an additional affirmation to these:

“Just for today I will experience all in complete acceptance, joy, and freedom from fear”

It’s meaning is obvious, but powerful!

Acceptance:  knowing everything is happening for my Higher Good in the best possible way

Joy – happy that it has been sent to me , again, for my Higher Good at this time

Freedom from Fear – without fear of what it is or what it’s consequences for the future mean…in complete Faith that it is part of Divine plan and overview.

[just now, as I write, I have been instructed to add “in gratitude” to this statement. For obvious reasons as well.  I am thankful for your love and care in sending this thing to me. So the full statement , as of today, is:

“Just for today I will experience all in complete acceptance, joy, gratitude and freedom from fear”

I’ve always said this in the morning along with the 5 principles, but have recently been guided to repeat them at night as well and couldn’t understand why until just the other day.

Saying it all at the beginning of the day puts us in a place of mindfulness about everything we do during the day.  So why at night?.

Well, something happened to me a few days ago which had me doubting, worrying, fearing and feeling confused – something which hasn’t happened to me in a long time.  I could not stop wondering and contemplating and concerning myself with the reasons for this particular occurrence the entire day. I was literally driving myself crazy all day thinking about the why’s and how’s.  And then night time rolled around, and it was then that I was literally “forced” to repeat the statements before going to sleep.  And as I did, I realized that the whole day I had NOT been aware of what I was doing…falling back into “worry mode” – into concerning myself with things which I should leave to God and the Universe – into forgetting my Faith and allowing my fears to take over.  And once I realized this – I fell into a peaceful and blissful sleep and awoke KNOWING for sure that all was well and would work out exactly as suited my Higher Good – but only if I could release my own ego’s attempt to control things and “figure them out”.

-How can I do this now?

-This is not what I planned or had in mind

-Maybe I will be too tired now while doing panchakarma to take on this work

-what if I don’t do it properly because I am not prepared?

-How will I find the time

-etc., etc., etc.

These are all actually none of my concern!  If something is sent to me, it is a “done deal” (if I allow it to be), everything having been worked out completely from beginning to end in ways that I could never imagine.  My human thinking being too limited to imagine the “how’s”.

Once I removed my ego from the issue, all things just began to flow easily, allowing me to just “sit back and relax”, while the events played themselves out in their own proper time and their own proper way.

If I had not repeated the statements before going to sleep that night, I would not have caught myself and the trap I had fallen into during the day, and would have had a sleepless night for sure-perhaps even continuing to plague me the following day.

I now repeat at night as well, to take a good look at the day and my actions and reactions to events.  And in the event that I have lost my balance in any way, I can come back to center, release all that is unnecessary, and sleep calming through the night.

thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyselfleviticus 19:18

If we look at this, as it is worded in the fourth of the Reiki Principles, it appears to be fairly straightforward. It is pretty obvious to us that one of the most important things in this world is to love and respect others, show compassion and tolerance, patience and understanding etc. We also know that we must be kind to EVERY living being and this would of course include animals, insects, plants etc., etc.

The original wording of the principle as stated by Dr. Usui is slightly different, but the message is more easily understood with the above paraphrase which I prefer using in my Reiki classes and in my own daily meditation practice.

And the profoundness of the principle, if we truly think about it, opens the door to an entirely new way of perceiving the ups and downs of our lives, of relating to instances where we feel we have been wronged by someone, or taken advantage of, even purposely hurt or embarrassed, or injured in any way. Of relating to the different people who come into our lives and the way we accept and embrace all that is sent our way by God and the Universe.

In addition, if we add just two small words to the above principle, it changes the impact and intent even more deeply. Just for Today I will Love and Respect Every Living Creature…INCLUDING MYSELF!! If we do not truly love ourselves, how can we possibly love and respect our neighbor??

I will try and give insights into the following two questions (more…)
