Self Esteem and Reiki

        One of the greatest benefits of Reiki, is the building of high Self-Esteem. 

  When I completed my first Reiki class 15 years ago, I had no idea that it was going to serve me in so many ways, especially in taking responsibility for every aspect of my life and reacting better when things don't work out the way I want them to.
   Life deals us different cards each day, so even the strongest sense of self can be rocked from time to time when an unexpected card gets dealt. With this in mind, how do you react, when the rug has been pulled out from underneath you, on a day when you felt you could handle anything? Is your first reaction to blame someone else for your misfortune, do you spend the rest of the day, or week, feeling sorry for yourself or worse do you allow yourself to feel bad about you? Now consider this reaction: you are confronted with difficulty in your day, instead of losing your spiritual sense of self, you accept the event as a bump in the road, where you pick yourself up, re-group then move on with faith that things will work out fine.
    When someone has good self-esteem this approach is the usual reaction. They take spiritual responsibility for every aspect of their lives, they generally do not feel sorry for themselves in disappointing circumstances.
    Conversely when someone has not taken time to work on their self-esteem, to the point that they don't have to depend on the ego as much for survival, then the first way is usually the reaction when their sense of self has been challenged.They lose their spiritual sense of self.
  When our self-esteem grows our need to rely on our ego gets smaller, but, never to the point where you don't need the ego for personal safety reasons. A small "e" ego will suffice. Isn't your self-esteem important enough to you? Important enough to react in a better way, when life suddenly pulls the rug out from under you? Mine is and yours should be also, fortunately the practice of Reiki helps us with this.
    As with any adventure into learning the benefits we receive, are equal to what we put into it. If you were going to learn how to play a musical instrument, but, did not practice in between lessons, chances are you would not be able to play that instrument for all it's beauty. You would frequently be off key. The same with Reiki. If you go to a Reiki class, but, don't apply it to your life you may frequently find yourself continuing to be off key. Reiki practice helps us with raising our self-esteem and high self-esteem helps us to stay on key when challenging circumstances confront us.   
    Reiki practice increases the vibration of our energy fields, so we naturally start gravitating toward things or people that are good for us, and consequently away from those that are not. Reiki practice leads us to people, books and circumstances that support our new, healthier way of reacting to life. Reiki practice also helps us to set boundaries with those people or things who would want to sabotage our self-esteem and growth. 
   When you receive the divinely guide energy from Reiki practice either through a class or in sessions with a practitioner, the energy you draw into your body goes to work healing the body on four levels spiritually, emotionally, mentally and physically. If you have blocks on any of these levels, which are preventing you from truly feeling good about you, then continued Reiki practice will help to release those blocks. It frees the soul to soar to higher places!
 Just as important as self-Reiki is to raising your self esteem, meditating daily on the Usui principles at the same time enhances the process.. I call this self-Reiki meditation and it helps to re-structure your energy system and mind with spiritual thoughts to increase your self-esteem. The Usui Principles are found on my website and in another of my blogs. Following them to the best of your ability each day will help you grow in self-esteem and peace.

Building self esteem is not so easy task you need to do a lot of practice for it and if i speak in general you have to earn it by your self. Thanks for giving a new shape for it.

You could definitely see your enthusiasm in the article you write. The arena hopes for even more passionate writers like you who are not afraid to mention how they believe. At all times go after your heart.

Confidence can be separated into 2 words: self and regard. Interpretation: How would you regard yourself? Or then again more essentially, how would you judge, respect, feel about, see, love or esteem yourself? This incorporates individual thoughtfulness about your character, characteristics, gifts, social abilities, and body.
