Peace On Earth

 

One of My favorite stories is “The Prince and The Pauper”. A novel written by Mark Twain published in 1881 in Canada. My first exposure to this work was the  comic book adaption, by Classic Comics.  My Uncle Chris had a collection of vintage comic books. When ever I would visit My Uncle and Aunt, I would end up in the basement,  to read the comics. Eventually I graduated to  His collection of Earle Stanley Gardner  detective novels, specifically, Perry Mason.

Without delving too deeply into the plot I offer this  brief synopsis – Two identical  looking boys, one a prince, the other, a pauper, end up mistaken for each other. Through a series of events  the prince assumes the identity of the pauper, and the pauper assumes the identity of the prince. With their roles reversed, each boy faces unexpected challenges and each boy gains a new insight  on life. The prince witnesses the struggles and injustices of the common man. The Pauper experiences the lifestyle of the prince.

“The Prince and the Pauper” contains  all the hallmarks of Mark Twain’s unique story telling style. However, for Me, the true impact of the tale was the dynamic idea that if our roles were reversed, We would have more empathy for one another. Secondly, life would be boring if We had no challenges or obstacles to overcome. Empathy is being able to imagine the circumstances and emotions of another. Imagine how others feel when faced with obstacles and challenges. We are all too quick to judge others without giving consideration.

Many sensitive people  absorb the  emotional  energy  of others around them. This may happen any where – in a shopping mall, at work, at school, or at the library.  In Reiki or any other form of  Energy Healing,  a sensitive person such a this is called an empath. An empath literally absorbs the energy around the auric field. This would include emotional energy such as fear, sadness, anger or grief. For an empath, this is devastating. To counteract this, an empath may develop ways  to deal with this. One excellent strategy  for an empath is to spend more time in a natural atmosphere. Natural environments have a healing effect. Spending time alone is essential for an empath. Take refuge in the wind, the sun, the stars and the wind.

Because I am a practitioner of Reiki, I use it  to clear energy fields around My aura and immediate environment each day, every day. I am also able to assist My Clients with this. Reiki is a highly effective tool for transmuting vibrational energies. When the energy in a room feels stale , open the windows to let in fresh air and sunshine. Burning a fragrant candle or incense is another option.  Christmas Day is a day of peace and prayer. It is a day of reflection, it is a day of quiet, it is a day of universal love. The vibrational energy during this day may be felt around the planet. Peace be with You on this sacred day. Merry Christmas to You !!!
