I hear this often from prospective coaching clients when I ask what they want to work on.

“I want to be more spiritual.”

Ok, let’s find a way!

How To Apply An Important Reiki Ideal To Content Creation

The traditional Japanese energy healing technique known as Reiki (which I’ve been a Master in since 2014) has 5 simple ideals to follow for those who become practitioners.

Here they are in brief:

  • Practice gratitude.
  • Do not worry.
  • Do not anger.
  • Be kind to every living thing.
  • Work honestly.

It’s The Last One We’ll Apply to Content Creation Today: Work Honestly

“Honestly” is also translated as “diligently.”

Remembering that Reiki is an energy healing technique, let’s unpack how energy works. Your content is your energy. Creation takes energy. Know what doesn’t take energy?

Procrastination. That is stuck energy.

Your Mission Is To Create Diligently & Honestly

Be true to yourself and follow your passions.

Don’t cheat on yourself by procrastinating or lying to yourself that you will, “do it tomorrow.” Be as diligent as you can because your creative work is your contribution — be fair to it.

Give it a chance.
