Walking up the block on errand day, my hair unwashed and a bit disheveled, dry cleaning slung over my shoulder, I smiled at a sort-of familiar face coming out of the dentist’s office.
Her face lit up, and she said, “You look so happy!”
“I’m having a good day, what can I say?”
To me, this is the Reiki precepts in action in the best way. Mutual joy in a small connection (compassion, no anger, no worry), and my ease and peace radiating into a neighborhood stranger’s own heart to light her up.
Which lit me up even more.
Potent little mutual healing moments peppered throughout the day, arising as naturally as walking, breathing, smiling.
