Using Infused Healing Water in your daily life enhances vitality and optimism by keeping yourself and your space clear.
What you need:
1. A small spray bottle;
2. Water; and
3. the essential oil of: sage, cedarwood, rosemary, OR sandlewood. OR, if essential oils aren't an option for you, simply find 3 blades of grass, a sprig of rosemary, OR 3 flower petals (rose and lavender petals work best).
Fill your spray bottle with water then place it outside in the sunlight for 12 hours. Then leave the bottle in the moonlight for at least 8 hours. Finally, place 3 drops of the essential oil into bottle. Or, if you're not using essential oil, reduce the blades of grass or flower petals small enough to fit into the bottle. Next, hold the bottle in your hands reciting your favorite prayer or mantra. Voila! You've created your own Infused Healing Water. Treat yourself by spraying the water all around you, your bedroom, on your bed linens, in your car and everywhere else you'd like to clear and invigorate.
Continuing the Usui Reiki Principles for a living happy life, the fourth Reiki Principle reminds us: Just for today, live honestly. As we enter the last full month of summer, it's a wonderful reminder. We're reminded to remain in our integrity and authenticity every moment of our lives: whether you're cooking a meal for your family, driving to work to earn a day's wage, or talking with a stranger. When you live in integrity you promote honesty, safety, and authenticity. Historically, human beings had to conform to social or family pressure. People were forced to marry against their will or had to marry the right person for the family - even if love was lacking. In recent history we've witnessed others pressuring themselves to have the right job, or live in the right neighborhood to be accepted and loved.
People have also made themselves conform to something they were not - which made them out of alignment with themselves. Who we are is WHO we are - period. We're a culmination of our ethics, our desires, our character, our choices, our beliefs, our opinions - everything. It's so important to remember that we're human Be-ings, not human Do-ings. We're all valuable and special and we all play special roles in each other's lives impacting each other every day. Take joy in the simplest of tasks infusing the honesty of who you are in everything that you do. Being honest fosters Truth and safety which enhances our ability to live freely and be who we are with one another.
