Transform Negative Thoughts with Reiki
Today’s Mindful moment we’ll explore how Reiki can help you transform negative thoughts and emotions, and guide you towards healing and embracing them. When negative thoughts arise, it’s best to address them rather than suppress them. We have been taught that negative thoughts and feelings are bad, but when we repress them, they don’t go away; they just get buried deep within our unconscious mind and become memorized emotional patterns. By using Reiki techniques, you can honor all thoughts and emotions, and learn to observe them with curiosity and non-judgment.
I encourage you to allow yourself to honor all thoughts and emotions. You are human, and the human experience includes all types of emotions.
Instead of blocking out thoughts and feelings that we label as negative, allow them instead to be observed. I share with my clients the analogy of watching a show or movie play out on the TV or the movie screen. Try your best to greet the experience with curiosity and non-judgment.
Try not to fear these thoughts and emotions. Remember, they do not define who we are; these thoughts and emotions only indicate our state of mind. You hold the power to change that state of mind. Sometimes it requires patience, love, and compassion. Other times you can be resilient and move through these thoughts and emotions with grace and ease.
One technique I found helpful is saying love and kindness statements to myself, and if it involves another person, I imagine saying these statements to them:
𝘔𝘢𝘺 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘣𝘦 𝘴𝘢𝘧𝘦 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘱𝘳𝘰𝘵𝘦𝘤𝘵𝘦𝘥.
𝘔𝘢𝘺 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘣𝘦 𝘩𝘢𝘱𝘱𝘺.
𝘔𝘢𝘺 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘣𝘦 𝘩𝘦𝘢𝘭𝘵𝘩𝘺 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘴𝘵𝘳𝘰𝘯𝘨.
𝘔𝘢𝘺 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘭𝘪𝘷𝘦 𝘪𝘯 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘴 𝘸𝘰𝘳𝘭𝘥 𝘱𝘦𝘢𝘤𝘦𝘧𝘶𝘭𝘭𝘺 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘸𝘪𝘵𝘩 𝘦𝘢𝘴𝘦.
Always remember your life is a journey, and we get better at what we practice most.
