Its Tannaz Hosseinpour and welcome to another short solo episode of Minutes on Growth. Last week, I took a refresher Reiki course, and was reminded of the beautiful 5 principles of Reiki that I wanted to share with you today. But before I do, I want to briefly talk about a question I was asked , “How can I show up as my higher self?”
& the answer is by showing up as your BEST self. Of course, your best will vary from day to day, but it’s important to be very honest with yourself and to ask yourself ” is this the best that I can do and be in this moment?”
Which brings me to the 5 principles. If we’re able to set these intentions every morning, and honour them throughout the day, then we can show up as our higher self.
Just for today, I will not worry
Just for today, I will not be angry
Just for today, I will do my work honestly
Just for today, I will give thanks for my many blessings
Just for today, I will be kind to my neighbour and every living thing
I love them because they’re practical, easy to implement and most importantly focused on the present moment. We usually set new year resolutions — this year, I will do x and y.. but we fail to follow through with them all.
Who we become in 1 year is a result of who we are every single day. When we set daily intentions, we’re not only focusing on the present moment, but we’re also taking tiny steps towards complete embodiment of our higher self.
These 5 principles focus on so many beautiful concepts such as integrity, kindness, gratitude and non-attachment. Worry and anger tend to arise when we’re attached to a certain outcome.. so promising ourself that just for today, we choose to surrender the outcome and just focus on being our best self.
Before I end this episode, I wanted to also share with you a tip I’ve learned that has helped me a lot.. Right before I enter a space, I declare to myself and the universe, that I will embody my best self while I’m there, and carry that declaration through all my interactions for that period.. and then when I enter a new space, I declare it again and again throughout the day.
So for example, if I’m entering a restaurant, I set that declaration and I ensure that I embody it when I’m placing my order with the waiter. I make sure I say a quick blessing before I drink my drink or eat my food. I send a silent blessing to the men and women who have designed the space, who have manufactured the seating… and trust me when I say this, whenever I’ve entered a space in this manner, the food has tasted amazing and the service has been amazing.
We are extensions of source –so when we extend love and blessings to everyone who is on our path, we are embodying the traits of the creator, we are thinking like the source, acting like the source, speaking like the source… and when we embody the source, we have access to the source. we are flowing in the stream of abundance, without resistance.
So with that said, are you willing to declare and embody these 5 intentions today? Are you willing and ready to show up as your higher self, as your best self?
I’m sure you are…
