Many of my Reiki healing clients want to change bad habits to good habits and improve their lifestyle, their way of thinking, their relationships, and more. But although these individuals are making great progress, they tend to focus on their perceived faults instead of on the positive changes they have made in their life. The Angels and Spirit guides have made it clear to me that this approach undermines positive change in our life and dilutes our power.
- Our spirit guides want us to focus on our progress and take it easy. Often we put too much pressure on ourselves to achieve a goal by a certain time and get upset or stressed when we don’t accomplish it. This creates resistance and makes it even harder for us to heal.
- Practice self-compassion; even our bad habits serve a purpose. You developed whatever bad habit you are now seeking to change because it helped you to meet a real need. Be gentle with yourself as you develop new ways of being in the world.
- Instead of focusing on your weaknesses, focus on the positive and keep your shortcomings in perspective. After all, the desire to make a change in your life is in itself worth celebrating. And beyond that, any steps in that direction of positive change, no matter how small, are helping you to become stronger and create your new life. So focus on the progress you are making.
Channeled Message from Archangel Metatron
“Honoring Your Progress”
Dear ones, I am here to share the perspective of your loving spiritual guides with you. We are always sending you inspiring thoughts and ideas and healing energy, and it delights us when you follow your intuition and try something new to improve your experience.
But many of you have difficulty honoring your progress as you make changes in your lifestyle. We guides want you to know that we support you fully. We wish you would focus more on all the progress you have made and spend less time worrying about your perceived failures and faults. When you worry or feel insecure about your abilities, you risk manifesting more of the same. But when you focus on your strengths and honestly assess the progress you have made, you fill yourself with love and begin to approve of yourself and your accomplishments.
The archangels want you all to know that life is a process of evolution. You will never be perfect, and at the same time, you are always perfect. We always support you to make healthy changes in your lifestyle, your thoughts, your beliefs, and your relationships. Please focus on the small steps you make every day that ultimately build up into radical transformation.
So many of you are far too critical of yourselves. Many feel unworthy to receive even basic approval. This benefits no one and in fact prevents you from offering your light and love fully on the planet. We guides never focus on where you are lacking, but we always support you in your strengths.
So stop moaning the piece of cake you shouldn’t have even or the workout that you skipped and focus instead on the multiple times you opted for fruit instead of fattening desserts, or how often you get exercise walking your dog, and so on.
In every situation, you have actions, thoughts, and beliefs that align fully with who you are and who you wish to be. Sometimes it may feel as if everything is working against you, but in truth, you are often working against your self. Please stop focusing on your perceived failures and criticizing your self.
Instead, support yourself and focus on what you are doing right. As your focus changes, you will see the universe move mountains to support you in improving your life. And as always, if you need help, call on the Angels. We will be there to provide for you.

Changing Bad Habits to Good with Reiki & Hypnosis
Reiki and hypnosis have helped me change bad habits to good in a way that was fast, fun, and easy. Valerie Grimes of the Flow Center helped me quit smoking cigarettes with personal hypnosis sessions, which included her valuable guidance as well as take-home recordings that anchored in the changes.
After my first session, I saw someone smoking and no longer craved the experience. After listening to the follow-up recordings, it has been easy to quit–much easier than it was the other two times I quit with sheer willpower or nicotine gum. I am convinced it is most effective to go to the root cause in the unconscious mind rather than try to wrangle our conscious mind into submission when quitting cigarettes.
Reiki also helps us change bad habits to good because it addresses the energetic root cause of any disorder. Often we hold limiting beliefs, painful memories, ancestral wounds, suppressed emotions, triggers from past traumas, or difficult childhoods that contribute to our bad habits or addictions. Reiki sends a gentle loving energy to heal and soothe the root cause of any bad habit we wish to change. Then change comes from within with ease, rather than difficulty or struggle.
During one of my attempts at quitting smoking (which I had started doing because I was participating in shamanic prayer ceremonies that involved tobacco), I decided to charge my pack of cigarettes with Reiki before smoking. I wanted fewer cigarettes and ended up giving away most of the pack. Plus blessing the tobacco with Reiki made the ones I did smoke more sacred and reduced the harmful energies (though still not enough to make smoking tobacco healthy for my constitution!).
Changing Bad Habits to Good with Meditation
Meditation helps us change bad habits to good in several ways:
- Generates awareness of our habitual responses
- Generates awareness of how habitual responses diminish our joy
- Generates compassion for our self and others
- Generates awareness we can transform our habitual ways of being, thinking, and doing so that we experience more joy
- Connects us to our physical body and emotional and mental experience in the present moment, which is precious
- Opens us to receive divine and intuitive guidance
- Relaxes us so that we can heal
- Creates space around us so that we are protected from others and stronger in our positive energy
- Helps us understand the root cause of our bad habits
- Connects us with friends who seek to cultivate good habits
I am an advocate for daily meditation. It is the wisest thing I ever did. I have healed from depression, physical disability, and social anxiety thanks to practicing meditation. I have also developed psychic abilities and an intuitive knowing that is beyond magical, and I have been blessed with countless blissful mystical and spiritual experiences on my path.
Sitting and watching your breath for as little as 5 minutes a day can radically improve and transform your life. If you can fit in 45 minutes a day, you will experience deep healing and spiritual development. Please check out the Dallas Meditation Center for mindfulness meditation practice groups and sanghas in Dallas, TX.
Ultimately, we can easily and joyfully change bad habits to good by being gentle with ourselves and honoring our progress, no matter how small. Reiki touch therapy and hypnosis also assist us in healing the root cause of any bad habit so that change emerges naturally from within and is less difficult.
Our loving spirit guides, archangels, ancestors, Higher Selves, and Source all support us in our full healing and joyful existence. Our intuition is the bridge that helps us access their wisdom. Always ask for help from this spiritual support team and know you will be guided to make improvements in a way that is gentle and loving. Then honor your progress and enjoy the ride!
