At the time I begun having Reiki Treatment I was working in an Exclusion Unit with challenge teenagers and even more challenging members of staff! By Friday I was mentally and emotionally exhausted and it took the whole weekend to recover and prepare for the next week. However, after starting Reiki I found I would recover after just practicing Chi Kung and then having a cup of tea. My week nights and weekends became more enjoyably and I was full of energy.
"Just for today I will not be angry."
I did not have a a lot of outward anger, but I could be implusive and as the old saying goes cut off my nose to spite my face. I also used my wit as a weapon, never with children but sometimes with adults. I had the clever quip which would divert anger a way from me. I imagine the receiver could have been very angry as they smiled. I was also quite defensive and could appear remote. Gradually bit by bit I changed. As the Buddha said,
Just for today I will not worry
I respect and I am grateful for all my teachers and elders.
