A Little Bit of Reiki In My Life

One of the first things taught in Reiki classes is how useful it is to give yourself Reiki every day, even if it’s just 10 or 15 minutes. If you're not familiar with Reiki, it is a self-healing technique that involves bring life-force energy into the body (link). The first month after a new student has been attuned to Reiki is devoted to self-Reiki. After that, students can  share it with others too, so long as they keep up their self-Reiki sessions! The biggest benefit to learning Reiki is using it in your life and with family; I love it because it soothes, relaxes and uplifts my spirit on a daily basis. Also, Reiki is always complementary to medical care, not alternative. 

Up until recently I took self-Reiki advice literally and went through a hands-on session daily, two chakras at a time, to get through the seven main chakras in 20 minutes, or just focusing on a different chakra every day of the week. Reiki is refreshingly simple to practice because as soon as we intend to use Reiki, the Reiki energy starts flowing through our hands. You feel it tingle, and when you practice on someone else, they do too. I begin by holding my hands in front of my heart chakra, palms together, while the energy builds, before starting the session. 

A Daily Reiki Meditation 

A few months ago I decided to hold this pose for 20 minutes (used in Gassho meditations), and it dawned on me that this lets Reiki flow from your palms to your whole body. The Heart Chakra regulates the flow of spiritual energy to the heart and lungs; by breathing in and out slowly, we can intend to fill our breath with Reiki, but also the blood that pumps through the heart and flows through the circulatory system to every last cell in the physical body (this we learned in Energy Healing School)

Next, I went onto visualise white or pink Reiki light in my Heart Chakra, letting it flow up and down my spine through the rest of the Chakras, and then down my legs into the ground. When that was done, I put my hands on my lap,  palms facing up, and intended for the Reiki energy to flow through the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual layers of the Aura. In energy healing school we learned to always ground and protect ourselves after a healing session, hence the light flowing into the ground. The last step is to see yourself surrounded by fiery Reiki.

This has been a relaxing way to get my daily self-Reiki dose, even though it doesn't involve putting your palms on your body. If you would like to learn more about Reiki or Energy Healing, here are a few posts: A Brief History of Reiki or have a look at this introduction to the Aura and the Chakras.

Reiki Keeps Us Calm and Focused

I took a picture of this Buddha statue in Nepal a few years ago. It stood out because of a sign that read "DO NOT SIT ON BUDDHA"
