Faith or Worry?
The second Reiki Ideal is to let go of worry. Which sounds great, but can be a daunting task. When worry takes over, it is nearly impossible to see anything beyond it.
What is on the other side of worry, its antidote, is faith. Faith in yourself, in kindness, in possibilities, in the Divine. By reaching beyond the borders of the constricted focus worry brings we can access the strength that faith can provide.
Believing in the unseen, believing in a kind Universe, believing that somehow, some way, it is all going to work out. That is the way to end worry for good.
Sometimes belief, faith, and trust get confused with only one religion or spiritual focus, but you need not be spiritual at all to have the quality of faith that can banish worry. You only need to believe in yourself.
Of course, I am biased on the whole spirituality and conscious Universe thing! I have just witnessed so many wild and wonderful and utterly unexplainable things to think otherwise. We live in a wise and intelligent Universe. Love is inherently woven into the fabric of light and matter. This deep kindness responds to our thoughts and feelings and provides whatever experience is needed.
The moment our focus shifts so does the Universe. Matter itself changes when our thoughts change.
This is why worries do not serve you.
You are in charge of your mind. You can begin to choose only thoughts that support and nurture you. Even a tiny shift will have rapid and positive results. Just even a small shift like breathing slower creates huge changes. The more that focus is given to what is wanted, the more what is wanted is delivered.
Believe in the result before you get it. Hand it all over to the wisdom of the Universe. Trust that you are strong enough to make it through this too.
