I’m not Jewish but I love Yom Kippur. Scheduling atonement in your calendar is so very smart.
Yom Kippur is a serious holiday even for Jews who are not observant and don’t fast. Here on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, many stores are closed. This day of atonement brings an unusual quiet to the heart of New York City.
As it should. Atonement is serious, and seriously necessary.
Yet other than Yom Kippur, who makes time to stop and look past the obvious, to review and atone on a regular basis? I’m sorry to say I don’t. Do you?
I haven’t forgotten
This year, I’m atoning for neglecting you. I’ve missed being in touch. And it doesn’t feel good that I didn’t keep my word.
I don’t know why you signed up for my blog posts, but I do know I’ve let you down. My last post was January 29. AARGH.
What happened? Short answer: I really don’t know. 2017 happened.
My goal was to blog here once a month and blog Reiki once a month. Well, that sure didn’t happen. I’ve barely blogged monthly since January, and it’s been all Reiki.
More than Reiki practice
Now I love my Reiki practice and I’m deeply grateful to mentor Reiki home and professional practitioners around the world. But I started practicing yoga and meditation as a kid, and what matters most to me — living with heart — is about more than Reiki practice.
The support I offer my private clients is broader and deeper than Reiki practice (which is why I refer to our time together as comprehensive healing sessions, not Reiki sessions). This was where I planned to offer you that kind of support.
I have managed to live this year with heart — no small triumph — but not to share it with you.
For that, I apologize.
Please know I didn’t forget you. I haven’t expressed it, but you’ve been in my thoughts and my heart, and my determination to do better in the coming year (somehow September seems more like the start of a new year than January does!).
