The Philosophy of Dandelion Doorways
The physical and spiritual worlds are just two of the many different realities. We cannot readily perceive, with our five senses, the other manifestations of reality. Through practices such as meditation, we occasionally glimpse these other realities. These glimpses can lead to a deeper understanding of self and the nature of being.
Everything we encounter is a form of energy. It surrounds us, flows through us, and guides us. Energy is not bound by time or space.
The words MATTER and METER both are derived from the Sanskrit root: MATR – meaning to measure. In this sense we can see that MATTER is not a thing, it is an attempt by man to measure his surroundings. Matter is a measurement of a process of the Universe. By viewing matter as objects, we increase our view as being separate from nature (the Universe). Matter is the measure of form; form is a process of the Universe. We are all a part of that process.
With REIKI we directly interact with that process, instead of thinking we are giving ourselves over to the whims of fate, we take an active role in creating the life we desire, a life of service to others and the Earth.
We understand the sacredness of all things including time. We realize “clock time” is a man-made construct to measure the moments of human life. The only true time is now- in the moment. We practice present moment awareness.
We take care of our mind, body and spirit in a conscious loving way. We utilize our breath to be present in our daily activities and meditate to gain deeper awareness and understanding of ourselves/egos.
We develop and learn to trust our intuition. We act from a place of honor and grace. We recognize our mistakes and learn from them. We do not “beat ourselves up mentally” for not always being present and gracious, instead we use our knowledge of REIKI and the tools we have been blessed with to lift ourselves up and begin anew. We are reborn every moment.
We realize the energy created by stress leaves an imprint on our energetic system, manifesting in some as acid reflux, panic, high blood pressure and other dis-ease. With deep understanding of the energetic processes, we can actively become aware of the energetic imprint (emotion) affecting our body, watch it mindfully and let it release. We take care to give ourselves treatments in order to move from a place of stasis to flow.
