I was walking in meditation tonight, thinking, and reflecting upon my Reiki Practice.
The last distanced Reiki gift went very well, and said to myself, “Why not? Let’s take another whack at it!”
In September, I received my Reiki Level 2 Attunement, which allows for the next stage of healing: Emotional & Mental healing. Dealing with those emotional traumas that have left scars deeply ingrained into our personalities. The traumas that may have even happened in lived past as well.
There are many different techniques for Reiki healing, including sending and giving Reiki over long distances to those who need and/or want it. Think of it as a super-charged prayer with a punch.
So, why not tap into the New Moon of this month and receive a gift of Reiki?
By liking this post, I will take that as an affirmative for wanting to participate.
As I did with the Free Full Moon Distanced Reiki Night, I will write all of your names down on separate slips of paper, draw some healing Reiki symbols, as well as my healing intention and use the technique of a Reiki Box.
My teacher says, “as Reiki energy penetrates the entire universe, it can be sent from a practitioner to one person or several people or situations simultaneously. The Reiki Box uses paper surrogates and is designed for working with several people at the same time.”
The Reiki Box is very simple.
You ask for permission. You write the people’s names down. Have good intentions. Hold the paper in one’s hands in the Gassho position (palms facing together in prayer at your heart center) and allow the energy to flow from your palms into the paper for a few minutes or as your intuition guides you. Put the paper in the box and close it. In this way, you can add as many paper surrogates as you wish or as many that will fit inside the box.
To send Reiki to the entire group, all I will have to do is draw the distance symbol directly on the box and set my intention:
“Thank-you for sending Reiki energy for the greatest good of everyone gathered for this healing. May they receive the necessary healing they need for a harmonious mind, body, and spirit. May they begin this new lunar cycle with new hope. May they see the beautiful potential for happiness all around them. May they plant seeds for the Universe to tend. And may they set their vision upon the stars. As the moon grows brighter and brighter may their hopes and dreams come to fruition. Namaste.”
Next, just allow the energy to flow for a few minutes until it seems like you have met your mark.
Now, as participants, if you wish to step it further, you can become a better conduit for this energy by sinking into meditation with me at the same time.
I will be performing the Reiki healing THIS SUNDAY AT 11PM EST. for about 30 minutes.
If you wish, get comfortable, light some candles/incense, put your choice of music on, and meditate with me.
I am really very excited about this, and I welcome who ever is interested.
Let’s take some time for ourselves, and meditate together. (Just be sure to correlate with your time zone.)
If you run late by accident, don’t feel guilty. You can enter at any time and leave at any time.
The key is to allow yourself the time to heal. You may even wish to stay longer than the 30 minutes.
I will be sending it for approximately 1 hour.
See you all Sunday under the liminal starlight.
The following may be done prior to your distanced Reiki session:1. Shower, take a sacred bath, or simply wash your face and hands.2. Dress in comfortable clothing. (This means pajamas for me!)3. Select your choice of peaceful music that will span for about an hour, or however long you wish.4. Create sacred space: However feels right to you but the easiest way is to clean an area from clutter and arrange simply items with intent and purpose, such as the following if you so choose:-a bowl of water;-a flower, other green thing in a vase or simply fresh black earth in a dish from your yard;-incense/essential oils/smudge stick in a fire proof container, and-a candle on or around the area for meditation. If you feel uncomfortable with candles, a space heater, fireplace fire, or simply sitting in sunshine can be substituted. (Be sure however that the candle will not be knocked over by animals nor will its drippings melt all over cherished items)-You may even wish to pick a Tarot card or other item to focus your inner imagery during the session.5. Make yourself a light snack of wholesome whole foods, tea and fresh chilled water. Fresh fruits, vegetables, and whole grains are best. Waters can be chilled with a slice of lemon or other fruit that has been slightly macerated and left in a pitcher in the fridge. Herbal tea is also good to have on hand. Chamomile would be perfect for just before bed.6. Make sure you explain to your house guests/friends/family that you will need to be left alone for the duration of your session.7. Silence all cellphones and land-lines.8. Ensure animals are kept in an area where they won’t be able to disturb you unless they are familiar with a mediation practice, in which case they may choose to join you.To begin your session:1. Place a drop of water on your third eye chakra, your heart, and your tail bone. Light the candle, incense/essential oil/smudge stick, and smell the flower or green thing. You may rub it between your fingers if you wish to really smell these earthy grounding essences.2. Sit in lotus position or “Indian-style,” lay down, or simply find a comfortable chair to relax in.3. Push the “play” button on your music media.4. Close your eyes5. Let your journey begin.During your distanced Reiki session:1. Be aware of any twitches or spasms of movement in your body. This is often a sign of release in an area.2. Be aware of heat, which is the classic and typical feeling in a Reiki session.3. Be aware of colours that you may see. If there is a colour you see predominately, this could be a sign that you need more of this colour/energy in your life to balance out your chakra of the corresponding colour.4. Be aware of past memories, or dreams that may surface during the session.5. Be aware of deep emotions experienced during the session. These could be of joy and euphoria; or of pain, anger, and sadness. All of which are valuable to your healing.After your Reiki session:1. Eat and drink plenty of water for the next few days. Often Reiki manifests with similar symptoms associated with detox, and plenty of water is important to flush away those toxins.2. Sleep and or rest to the best of your ability. 8+ hours a night is recommended.3. Record and document any odd or exhilarating dreams. These are also detox-like symptoms.4. Follow-up & share your impressions of the session. My contact information is above. (However, you may wish to wait to comment on the New Moon Reiki Discussions post that will be published after the session.)Questions after your Reiki session:1. Were there any problems or questions during the session?2. What were your experiences during the session?3. What did you feel after the session?4. Did the Reiki healing help you with your complaint?5. Any other observations?I am also obligated by law to make you aware of the following:Reiki is a simple, gentle, hands-on energy technique that is used for stress reduction and relaxation. Reiki practitioners do not diagnose conditions nor do they prescribe or perform medical treatment, prescribe substances, nor interfere with the treatment of a licensed medical professional. Reiki does not take the place of medical care. It is recommended that you see a licensed physician or licensed health care professional for any physical or psychological ailment you may have. Reiki can complement any medical or psychological care you may be receiving. The body has the ability to heal itself and to do so, complete relaxation is often beneficial. Long term imbalances in the body sometimes require multiple sessions in order to facilitate the level of relaxation needed by the body to heal itself.
