Give Time To Yourself

Regular practice of Reiki brought one very precious thing in my life and that was to slow down. 

All our life we keep running, completing tasks, keep appointments, meet deadlines, make social visits, the list is unending. How many times I would ask for more than 24 hours in a day. I was a slave of the clock. Some part of me would ask if all this was so important but I would ignore that voice. Till one day when I just gave up trying to keep up with the clock. Minimum compliance of reaching for work on time was the only thing I maintained. Rest of the stress of being quick and on time, I simply dumped it in the garbage can. This helped me immensely to have another perspective of my life and I began to have more time for things 'I wanted to do' rather than all the time doing 'what others wanted me to do.

Practicing Reiki calmed me down and led to a few 'out of the body experiences'. The pure moment of bliss in those moments have begun to replicate even when I am not meditating. It happens more and more when I am reading poetry or penning  down my thoughts in verse. Some thoughts on why I am now slow.......

They say I am slow

I am slow as I wait...

I wait till the smiles

reach the eyes.

I take time to appreciate

all the lows and highs.

I wait for the tears to

turn into joys.

I linger upon the

shadows of sunshine,

playing on the leaves and boughs.

I am slow

to be in sync

with the spirit 

of life itself.  

I wait for

the pain to turn

into grief and

slice through me  

breaking all ties.

I am slow 

as I am in no hurry

to reach the skies

They say I am slow

but being slow is good for me.
