As I venture further into my love affair with Reiki, I am learning more and more about something we all take for granted, breathing. One of the nicknames for breathing is 'the elixir of life'. Another one is the 'path of life.' Breathing is so critical in our lives. Yet we often forget to do it (at least in a beneficial way). I am reading about methods to incorporate breathing into both my life and my Reiki practice that are fascinating and effective. You can survive on the oxygen that has accumulated in your skin cells for a very long time as long as you are able to tap that as a source. Breathing can work as a much more effective way to channel Reiki and thus heal both giver and receiver. Want to live a long, happy and stress free life? Breathe!
