Forgive yourself for missing the practice.
It is important to forgive yourself for any lapses in your practice and move on. If you dwell on the fact that you missed a few days, it will only make it harder to get back into the habit.
Start slow and build up.
Don’t try to jump right back into your old routine. Start with just a few minutes each day and gradually increase the amount of time you spend practicing. It will help your body and mind adjust to the idea of Reiki again.
Find a time that works for you.
If you find it difficult to fit Reiki into your old schedule, try to find a new time that works better for you. It is important to be consistent with your practice, so find a time to stick with it.
It takes time to develop a daily practice. Be patient with yourself, and don’t expect to be perfect. Just do the best you can and know that every day is a new opportunity to start fresh.
Find a teacher you connect with.
If you find it difficult to keep up your practice on your own, consider finding a teacher. A good Reiki teacher can help motivate and encourage you to stay on track. They can also provide invaluable guidance and support along the way.
Choose other elements of healing to commit to in addition to hands-on-healing
Reiki has many different elements, so you can pick and choose what you want to commit to. You may want to practice meditation, contemplate the five precepts, or work with a specific Reiki symbol and mantra if you are level II or higher. Find what works best for you and it will be easier to stay motivated.
Connect with others on the Reiki journey.
Another great way to stay motivated is to connect with other people on their own Reiki journey. There are many online communities and forums to share your experiences and learn from others. This can be a great source of support and inspiration.
Ask your teacher for Reiju or group distance healing.
If after trying some of the above recommendations you still find it difficult to stay motivated, book a Reiju with your teacher. It is a blessing that can help increase your energy and motivation. Some teachers also offer complimentary group distance healing for their communities.
Embrace the journey and be open to new experiences.
The key to a successful Reiki practice is being open to new experiences. Allow yourself to be flexible and don’t cling to your old ways. Be willing to try new things and see where they take you.
Remember that the journey is what counts, not the destination. Embrace the journey of learning and growing.
Track your Reiki progress.
Keep a journal and write down how you feel after each practice. Note any changes or improvements that you notice in yourself. It can be a great source of motivation and inspiration.
Find an accountability partner.
If you find it difficult to stay on track with your practice, consider finding someone who will help you stay on track and remind you of your goals.
Remember why you started practicing Reiki.
When you find yourself struggling to keep up your practice, it can be helpful to remember why you started in the first place. What are your goals? What do you hope to achieve through Reiki? Keep these things in mind, and they will motivate you to stick with your practice.
Reiki is a powerful tool that can help us heal on many levels. By taking the time to renew your practice, you can reconnect with the healing energy of Reiki and, before you know it, you’ll have a Reiki routine that supports your inner wellbeing.
