Doing work that energizes us and feeling relaxed and centered through Reiki - EDEM ep. 39 with Janice Lodato
Giving is a way to create meaning in our day. Little opportunities to help others, to serve, all are around us, coming up moment-to-moment. Simple acts to give a little bit of our time, patience, love, ourselves can go a long way to help someone, but in doing so it actually helps ourself. Meet Janice Lodato, a mother of one who works full-time but also has a Reiki, grief coaching, and meditation instruction practice on the side. She is busy enough, why does she do the side work too? Helping others in this way actually fills her up, it energizes her. We learn about Reiki, which is a light touch therapy from Japan that brings on a state of deep relaxation in people. When we’re relaxed, we heal better, heal faster, we think more clearly, we relate to people better, we are more creative. While we know giving to others makes us feel good. We can’t give from an empty place, we must give to ourselves too. For Janice, it’s keeps up her own morning Reiki and running practices where nobody expects anything of her that fills her up so she can do this work that helps others and actually energizes her to do more. Another thing that helps her center whenever overwhelm comes in is asking the question, “what’s important now.” When we’ve taken the time to fill ourselves up and we’re in a relaxed state, we can better answer that question and feel good about it. Knowing whats right looks different for everyone and we only know when we connect inside.
