Remember the Lotus

Whenever you should doubt your self-worth, remember the lotus flower.  Even though it plunges to life from beneath the mud, it does not allow the dirt that surrounds it to affect its growth or beauty.  Suzy Kassem. The lotus flower is considered a sacred symbol.  The Lotus symbolizes purity, beauty, majesty, grace, fertility, knowledge and serenity.  The lotus will fluorish in murky waters, pushing through mud and mire.  The petals break through and reach toward the sun, while the leaves stay afloat as they shine in the light.

Symbolically, lotus petals can be found in the chakra symbols.  Each chakra has a specific number of petals, representing ascending vibrational frequencies.  The state of enlightenment is represented by the thousand-petal lotus.

Quiet Your Mind

If we are not overachieving and extremely busy in today’s society, then we are the exception to the rule and not the norm. We are all guilty of this:  we over-extend, over-achieve and over-stress ourselves to the breaking point.  Little do we realize, however, that we are hurting our body by hurting our mind.

The Art of Gratitude.

It is so easy to be upset when things do not go the way we hope.  From the moment we spill our coffee, lock our keys in the car or forget our phone, a spiral of circumstances can set us off into a tailspin of negativity.  We can choose to stay in a state of discontent and let it dictate our day, or we can be grateful for all the good things in our lives . . . even if they are not present in front of us right now.
Just for today, I will give thanks for my many blessings.  Dr. Mikao Usui.
Did you ever notice that when something positive happens, we tend to smile for a moment and then move on?  However, when something goes wrong, we feel the need to dwell on it, or tell it to who will listen.  It is those exact moments of discontent during which we need to focus upon gratitude.  Then and only then will we pull ourselves up from the perpetual state of discontent.

Keeping our focus on gratitude offers our minds something to smile about, regardless of outside circumstances.  Focusing upon people, places and even things that make us grateful, gives our minds the quiet respite that it needs to stay active and healthy in the future.

A Time for Nothingness.

Everyone has a busy schedule; that is a known fact.  We all set our schedules to overflowing and then complain that we do not have time for ourselves.  What we need to do is take a good hard look at our schedule and see what we can delete or delegate.  To have a healthy mind and spirit, we need to take care of it just as we would your bodies.  One cannot function in a healthy way without the others.

The best tip for quieting the mind is to put it on our schedule.  Put it in big red pen on our calendar, text a self-reminder, and place it on the list of things to do this week . . . whatever it takes to make that date with ourselves.  Be kind to you!

Just for today, I will be kind to every living thing.  Dr. Mikao Usui.

Take a Moment.

Being in the moment has become a cliché.  However, if we take the time to learn what that means, we will learn how to quiet the mind.  Focus on what you are doing at the exact moment you are doing it.  Avoid all other distractions, giving one-hundred percent to that moment and that task.

In this way, we can focus on the moment at hand, and not two days from now when something big is arising.  The concept of the Reiki Principles, and “just for today” is a practice which can be incorporated into each day, even if you are not a Reiki Master.
