NAMASTE! To me this is the perfect greeting to start any communication. As it was taught to me, it is a Sanskrit word that means “The God/Divine in me salutes/acknowledges the God/Divine in you.” I believe that is the highest form of respect that we can pay to another being.
Think about what that actually means. For years I used the word without fully understanding. I was always acknowledging the “Divine” in others. Then one day, during my very first Reiki Master attunement, I knew that I was also acknowledging the Divine in ME! It was a life-changing moment, and it was Reiki that brought me to that knowing. Through Reiki, I am able to open to my Divine Self, my Spirit.
