I'm a Reiki Master Teacher. People look up to me and see me as a, "Master" who's got it all figured out. Please understand it's not that I don't have my own issues come up sometimes; it's I've learned to be strong and unwavering and transmute things on my own, just like I help teach other to do. I mostly don't even dignify my false stories or feelings to anyone, unless it feels unbearable, because I don't want to give energy to those stories or burden anyone because I know I'm responsible for my own emotions and can manage them, learn from them, and transmute and release/replace them with healing love and light. So, I try to help others learn to express themselves when they need to so they release whatever is no longer serving them, but also empower them by showing them how to manage their emotions on their own and learn from them so they can rise above and stand in their spiritual authority.
We have a mental body where are thoughts reside, emotional body full of our emotions, a physical body for physical sensations, and a spiritual body. We can operate temporarily out of any one of them and sometimes, we can get stuck in any one of them. However, it's our spirit body that we need to stand in and stay in. Everything else is temporary. Our spirit body is our eternal home of love and light and always allows us a way through anything. Our physical body houses us for now, and our thoughts and emotions are indicators and feedback mechanisms to help ensure we stay on our spiritual path.
Ultimately, I know everything in my life has led me to do what I do now. If I can overcome and keep moving forward every day, so can any one else. I need to lead by example. I need to be the Master. I've worked through a lot of my issues, and I need to show others that so can they. I know that there's a spiritual reason for all of it, and I have learned to master my energies, body, thoughts, and emotions for the most part. So, I am here to help others do the same as best I can now. I have a responsibility to live by my words, by the spiritual truths I've learned; that I know to be true for all and that I'm here to share with others. I need to live in this human world as a human with human emotions and challenges, but not be of it or fall victim to it, or get sucked into the illusion of fear or ego or separation. I need to hold my perfection and the perfection for everyone. We are all eternal spiritual beings having temporary physical experiences to help us grow. Nothing we go through is real; it's just an act, a scenario; an opportunity for us to be the presence of love and to find a way to always be that presence of love. No matter how hard it is for me sometimes, I need to hold that perfection. I am love. I am light. I am source's perfect design. So is everyone else! The more I hold that perfection, the more others remember their highest self and their perfection and eternal divinity.
I'm still in human form, like everyone else though, and work at it every day to maintain things and continue to face and overcome any other of my residual issues that may occasionally come up. It's just as challenging for me as everyone else, if not more so because I'm in a leadership position and people look up to me for help and strength and guidance. It's a lot of responsibility. You're never given anything you can't handle though, as we all signed up for this knowing how much we can handle and overcome. So, I stay strong for myself, for others, and for the world. I've done so much work on myself, and at the same time, I knew I was helping the world since we're all connected. So the same is true now; when I'm helping others, I'm also helping myself, and when I'm continuing to help myself grow, I'm helping others grow even more. What we do for one, we do for all. Helping myself heal even more every day helps you heal, and me helping others heal every day and night helps you to heal, and me to heal even more deeply. We're all one.
Of course, I have my challenging moments come up where it's like I try so hard to do so much good and be so loving and helping and things don't always necessarily seem to be working out the way I want them to or feel like, "I deserve." It doesn't seem fair sometimes. It can be extremely and intensely frustrating and disappointing. It's all just human thinking that we're all working on replacing with spiritual truths we all know and aspire to live by.
I talk about all this in general terms and the lessons I've learned or am working on during meditations and sharings. I use it as a learning and teaching example that we're all growing and learning together, reminding each other, and that we can all find a way through, just like I am.
We're all going through this together. We're all teachers and students. We're all doing the best we can. I'm the Master, and at the same time, I'm trying to bring out the Master in you and all of us. Keep standing in your unwavering spiritual authority everyone. Keep being the Master you are! We're all in this together. :)
