A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…
At 12 the Padawan’s imagination first sparked. She knew she wanted to be a Jedi, but she had no idea how to get there. She flew tie fighters and speeders in her dreams, swinging her lightsaber and taking out evil peeps. 14 years, a psychic development class, tarot class, and Reiki training later, she was on her way. Crystals and meditation became her lightsaber and Reiki the Force. Her skills grew and in time she became a legend (still working on the skill building and legend part ;)).
Jedi and Reiki have many similarities. And you my dear are a Jedi. Your training is life, and all the lessons and classes you go through to get where you want to be.
It doesn’t matter if you’re old school Jedi (Old Republic) or new school Jedi (New Republic), the lessons in the Jedi Code and Creed totally rock the Reiki precepts. Jedi are guardians of peace, healers, they respect life, serve others, and improve upon themselves through training and knowledge. Doesn’t that sound familiar?
As Reiki practitioners we are Jedi. We go though rigorous training with Masters and teachers to help cleanse and focus our mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical bodies. We tune into our skills. We move energy. We help others. We respect others and ourselves. We try new things. Find ourselves. Become masters. It’s a slow, but worthwhile process.
You might have the Master Yoda of Reiki Teachers, they get you to think for yourself, they don’t hand you your lessons on a silver platter. They force you to discover what you need to, to grow. Frustrating, but the best thing ever in your training.
Maybe you aspire to be a Reiki Master Teacher yourself, have you gone through the trials to be given that title? Reiki now-a-days you can take all the levels and be a Master in a weekend. Don’t be a weekend master, walk the Jedi path and learn to be a Yoda. Don’t get all Episode 2 & 3 Anakin whiny because you can’t get what you want, you saw what he became. Redemption is a slow process. Control yourself and be willing to take on the lessons presented. Be a Princess Leia, strong willed and determined, GET SHIT DONE (and heck if you want to rock the sexy outfits go right ahead).
Yes, yes, I’m completely aware that Star Wars is a work of fiction…glorious glorious fiction.
What color is your lightsaber?
