Yes I gained it back. I started gaining back when I was stuck out of town as another Hurricane headed for home. Did I say I eat over emotions? I still had lots to learn.
Anyway I believe Reiki is a great weight loss tool. I'll be getting into it and several other healing energies you can learn on your own later, but right now I want to talk about the Reiki Principles and this book. Here is one way these are represented in Ms. Rowland's book. I counted at least 6 variations in her book, my teacher showed me several other ways and I've seen many other ways that people say this daily, but it all means the same thing.
1.The Path Of Reiki
2. The Reiki Principles
8. The Double Chapter: An invitation to Happiness and a promise of Miracles
Epilogue: The Spiral Path
" The simple words "just for today" invite us to be gentle with ourselves in attempting to live by the Reiki principles. These words center us in the present moment..... Whatever our hopes and ambitions, lets do the best we can today. With heartfelt gratitude for the good in our lives and with self-respect and integrity, surely we can be kind to everyone we encounter today-including the person we see in the mirror." Amy Z Rowland.
Here is a more traditional version of the Reiki "Precepts" or principles. The back ground picture is The Japanese Garden in New Orleans Botanical Gardens. A great place to sit and read this book.
