8.1.2021. My Dad's birthday

It was a beautifully snowy morning which is first time this winter, which inspired us to go outside for a walk. It made me realise and appreciate what a beautiful place we live in and I strongly felt it was a gift from my Dad who is in spiritual world now. It was magical morning and great way to start the day full of lovely messages from him.


Moving into the new year, I have decided to act upon this quote ' Continuity is the father of success'. By doing a little a day of what you enjoy or what is important for a healthy lifestyle you can achieve so much. It is easy to set goals that are unrealistic and perhaps a little too optimistic so this year I made a new years resolution that I know I can realistically uphold. This is not a sign of laziness or weakness but one of self understanding and strong will.

I want to make sure that I fit Reiki, Meditation and Yoga into my everyday life, even for a short time each day because I am well aware of the huge difference this can make. I aim to do this in the morning and evening as well as writing my diary. It is important to start and end the day with relaxation and happiness.

As a part of this, I am reading a 365 day quote book. Today, the quote was:

"Use your love to send your loved ones out to the world. Allow them to experience life for themselves without holding them back. That is true love".

And this is exactly the way my parents did for me and my siblings. They allowed me to leave Japan, which must have been so hard, to come here and live the life that I wanted. Now, as a parent, I realise how much courage it takes to be able to do this and that it requires a deep trust in your child to do what is right. I am forever grateful for all that he did for me and hope to be able to do the same to my loved ones in the future.




今日は亡き父の誕生日。父を恋しく思いながら朝目覚めてみると、この冬初の雪景色。あまりに神秘的な朝だったので裏庭からお散歩に出てみると、家の裏をお城に向かって流れる川から美しい景色が広がっていて、この場所に住めていることのありがたさを再確認できたそんな1日の始まり。耳をすましてみると、あちらこちらから父の声が聞こえてくるようなそんな素敵な1日となりました。


今年は新年の抱負の一つに、”継続は力なり”を掲げました。自分を労り無理のない程度に大好きなこと、心身ともに癒しになることを朝晩習慣付けるのが目的で、霊気、瞑想、ヨガ、夢日記と明日日記をつける、日本語の本と英語の本を少しづつ読み続けるなどなど。。。

そこで活躍している365日の美しい言葉の本、父の誕生日のページには”あなたの愛によって、愛するものを世界に押し出しなさい。彼らが自分自身を充分に体験できるようにしむけなさい。それが、ほんとうの愛だ” とありました。これはまさに両親が私や私の姉弟を育てる時に実践し続けてくれてたこと。今、自らが十代の子を持つ親となり、子供をまずはしっかりと育て、全面的に信じて任せ、旅立たせるための準備をしてあげることがどれほど難しいかを実感すると同時に、親としてのさらなる成長が必要なことを教えてもらえた、そんな不思議な1日でした。大好きな父に心からの感謝を込めて。。。
