5 Reiki Precepts: Precept #3 - Be True to Yourself
As I've written before, the system of Reiki offers five precepts (or rules to live by). The third one is "Be true to your way and your being."
This precept is about trusting your internal guidance and finding your unique way. Reiki helps engage our inner resources, the answers we so often seek already lie within: we don't need to go outside ourselves. So often clients ask me what I noticed during the session but it's more enlightening to hear what clients themselves discovered during a session -- they usually have the answers they're asking me. Being true to your way happens when you start trusting yourself.
An Exercise: Take a minute or two to think about what you do or need to do to support yourself so you can be true to the light that makes you special and different from anyone else.
Try writing it down. Journaling is about tapping into your inner wisdom and internal guidance and you can uncover and discover many answers this way.
