Life can be overwhelming. It can make you feel stressed, tired and run down from all the things we have to do each day. Between work and taking care of your family, have you ever felt that there never seems to be enough hours in the day?
With everything you have to do, you might find yourself feeling lost and that you are living a life with little purpose and intention. Yet, you are living a life of purpose and meaning. Your inner light is there; you just haven’t opened your heart and tapped into it.
The key to finding your inner light is joy. But reaching a state of true joy isn’t always easy, especially when you are stressed. Sometimes we all need a little help getting there, and Reiki may be just the help you need.

Turning Stress into Joy & Happiness
The saying goes, laughter is the best medicine, which is very accurate in treating stress.
Japanese Medicine philosophy believes happiness is the opposite of inflammation. Under this philosophy, when we experience joy and happiness, our energy becomes full of life and flows freely and quickly through our bodies.
But how can we reach a point of true happiness? It seems an impossible task when you have the weight of the world on your shoulders.
One answer – joy. What brings you joy? Dance, going for a walk, catching up with a friend, singing in the shower. Find those moments to experience joy because every time you do, you are letting the light in and connecting your spirit with your mind and body and allowing your body to heal. Whatever it is, no matter how minor, make sure you leave room to experience joy because the key to finding your inner light is through joy.
Using joy to reconnect with your inner light and purpose
When we live a life of purpose, we connect our physical body, our heart, mind and higher self with our light source. When we connect our body, mind and spirit and listen to our higher selves, we can discover our true purpose, our passion and our direction in life.
