Breaking Through Resistance: Embracing Self-Care with Usui/Holy Fire Reiki®


In the hustle and bustle of our daily lives, it's not uncommon to encounter resistance when it comes to prioritizing self-care. We often find ourselves caught up in the demands of work, family, and other responsibilities, leaving little time for the essential practice of nurturing our own well-being. In this blog, we'll explore the resistance to self-care and introduce transformative solutions, with a spotlight on Usui/Holy Fire Reiki® sessions and classes as a gateway to spiritual and holistic healing.

Understanding Resistance to Self-Care:

Why is self-care often met with resistance? The answers may vary, but one common thread is the tendency to prioritize external obligations over internal well-being. As a result, stress, anxiety, and burnout become frequent companions. It's crucial to recognize this resistance and actively seek ways to break through it. Self-Love and grace is needed as to balance resistance.
