Reiki as a Healing Technique for Beginners

how to do reikiReiki is the Japanese healing method created as you need to be focusing on the positive rather than the negative. You cannot relax with worries on your mind. So let go of those polluted thoughts and allow healing to restore your body. Grateful gratitude is one of the most pure as it allows us to become aware of all the positive and great things we have in our lives which is the recipe for happiness.  Honesty makes sure that your actions are good and your work is always focused on improving the world and the life of others and that you’re not doing anything that can hurt.  All the people must be dreikiiven by pure intentions and live a life of honor and integrity. You will be kind to every living creature.  Show respect and kindness towards everyone whether it be your family, stranger animals and nature.  Show that you value that living being and see how important and beautiful it is.  Let your heart be open and spread love. 

These are the five principles of Reiki to help you live a positive and loving a life and allowing the universal energy of ki to heal you and flow through you. There are four important symbols used in Reiki the power symbol, the mental and emotional symbol, the distance healing symbol and the master symbol. The power symbol known as the chakra raid which means to place the universal power within itself. Here this symbol is used for requesting more power and energy from the universe and can also be used to ask for protection and safety. The emotional symbol symbolizes the uniting of God and human as they become one. This symbol is used for recreating balance and harmony inside you and others or in your environment. The distance healing symbol means may the Buddha and I connect with the Buddha in you .This simple issues to heal on a distance if you are unable to be with the person you wish to heal. This symbol can also be used to heal a situation and time .These symbols are only used by Reiki masters to attune others for the universal key energy. These symbols are visually drawn above the object for which you wish to influence whether it be yourself, another person or an object.  So if you want to learn how to use Reiki, here all the levels you need to work on level.  One Reiki attunement is the process where person gets more in tune with the Reiki energy and it helps them flow freely inside them. There are three levels of Reiki attunement the first level opens your chakras and allow you to connect with the universal energy, on the second level you will learn how to create mental stability and balance and the third level is the master level where you will be able to teach Reiki. Normally you will need a Reiki Master to perform the achievement but many believe that it is possible to achieve yourself as well.

A Reiki attunement can create solid strong emotions and you may be able to feel the vibration of energy before you begin the achievement.. Sit on a chair with your feet placed flat on the ground and your legs and arms on crossed to be open to the energy.  Take a couple of deep breaths to settle your body and calm your mind and then do a 30-minute meditation exercise to allow yourself to completely relax and clear your mind you can put on some soothing meditation music or calm nature sounds to help you get another relaxed state and release tension from your body. Attunement by Reiki Master can be done when you have a Reiki Master Church in you, he will place himself behind you and you will both do the Namaste pose for respect and pray to the universe to allow your heart to be open and your soul to be pure, you will pray for Reiki to come into your body and be humble and grateful, pray that anger and hatred will leave your body and replace it with unconditional love and compassion. You can ask angels to assist you if you please make the prayer meaningful to you, then the master will start by placing his hand on top of your head to open your crown chakra and raise your vibration so that you are ready to receive Reiki. reiki energy-healingThe Reiki Master will then draw the master symbol above your head followed by the three major symbols.  Each symbol will be pressed down into your crown chakra allowing it to be open to the energy flow. The reiki master will then place himself in front of you drawing the same three symbols into your heart chakra allowing you hard to be open and ready to receive loving energy.  Now the master draws the symbol into the palm of your hands to activate your hand chakra and allow them to be open and be a channel for healing now.

The Guided meditation begins with the process of self inquiry to get curious about what we are really feeling.  Be okay with life as it is and then nurture and open our hearts with kindness. This process will help you to find peace from within. Beginning with making yourself comfortable with your arms and legs uncrossed. Make sure to turn off all possible distractions and set this time aside for you in a moment. The guidance flows through a body scan.  To begin the process of relaxation, you can release tension and negativity by letting go completely.  You can turn your attention inward and now allow your eyes to close gently and bring your focus to your breath without changing your breath.

Guided MeditationSimply notice how it flows in through your nose. Feel the cool air as it passes into your nostrils and fills you up.  Encourage each natural out-breath to release any tension that you may be feeling. Continue to observe your breath and allow it to deepen naturally and slow down. We will practice connecting to what is true for you in your heart. You will cultivate loving energy for yourself to nurture what is true for you and to find peace.  Give yourself permission to be fully supported by the earth to connect to the collective energy of the universe and to be open to possibilities of what comes with the state of comfort and relaxation and now slowly begin to scan your body as said that each part of your body encourages and releases a complete relaxation to find ease in your body.  Allow the surface below you to support you fully begin this body scan at your feet and simply relax. 

Move your attention up from your feet and begin to release your lower legs and knees. Feel how each part of your body becomes heavy and connected to the energy around you as you allow it to let go and now find a sense of ease and your thighs and hips as you let go completely. Move up and take a deep breath to help release any tightness in your lower back. Continue this process of increasing your comfort and connection to the collective energy of the universe around you and welcome a feeling of softening into your abdomen let your chest and arms rest heavy on the surface below you feel as your neck and throat release any physical and emotional tension that you may be holding on to.  Allow your jaw to unclench and feel as the small muscles of your cheeks and forehead soften and smooth and as the small muscles in your face and jaw.

Consider the situation or feeling that has overwhelmed or stuck impact on you. Recognize what you are feeling and accept in the present moment.  Know that the state of overwhelm is simply an obstacle on your path and it is part of your journey because this may be a negative or challenging emotion.  Let down your guard and your armor to this emotion makes space for awareness and acceptance without judgment. We often have the unconscious impulse to push away suppress or ignore difficult emotions which simply brings about more suffering.  Some might busy themselves to prove their worth or neglect what is really going on while some may have a fear of failure and overwhelm that may paralyze them. Some may feel anxious or restless based on all that there is to do.  Whatever you’re feeling is okay. woman-with-yoga-postureThese are simple patterns that have been developed. They are not you recognize but the self-talk going on in your mind recognize the potential that you may have unmet or unrecognized expectations from yourself or others that may be playing a role in the judgments of yourself or possibly you’re experiencing negative self-talk begin to move out of the thinking patterns and bring your attention to your felt experience.  No need to attach words or labels to your feelings.  Simply explore what those feelings are pause and allow these feelings.  Sometimes we may be judgmental when a negative feeling surface acknowledged the feeling and allow it to be what it is without judgment or sometimes we may push the feeling down and focus on something else in this situation.

Being present is the way stay in the moment stay with the feeling and be okay with it continue to make space in your heart for these feelings to come up and simply be we may want to resist the discomfort of a negative feeling and remove ourselves from the present moment do your best to stay present and mindful in a time when difficult emotions come up practicing a moment of pause after recognizing a feeling or behavior gives you the opportunity to make another choice a different choice than you are used to making creating space during this moment of pause allows you to stop the negative habit or behavior before it continues.  It allows you to respond skillfully rather than reacting by simply allowing the difficult emotion to be. What if you are able to bring your awareness to the present moment experience and you may notice almost immediately?  A sense of softening and ease around the emotion simply by allowing it to be with honesty and acceptance comes the ability to move forward and to grow once you have recognized the emotion and allowed it to be what it is.  Get curious about what you are feeling and what is behind the feeling explore your own truth breathe deeply to allow space for your truth to surface. yoga-girlNow is the time for some deep self inquiry.  Start to ask yourself some questions about what you are experiencing? What is underneath the feelings you are experiencing?  How you are feeling? The answers may not come immediately and that is okay continued to allow the emotions to surface in these next few moments. Make space for the truth and acceptance of what answers will come in time. Begin to let go of judgments.  Let go of self-limiting beliefs. Let go of.  Let go of fear. Let go of any negativity. You may be holding on to this negativity doesn’t have to be named specifically, just let it go,  let the energy of negativity go,  let go of any past negativities and replace them with positive thoughts and gratitude.  Take a moment to release all that is holding you back,  all that you have pushed down , any anger and resentment any fears and any negativity.  As you bring the feelings and emotions to the surface, do so with a sense of unconditional love for yourself. See what is really going on for you and proceed with care and compassion.

Meditation: A Yoga Science Allied To It

The science behind yoga is quite correlated to meditation to a certain extend. Thousands of years back the first mystics wanders several places just to attain solace from their daily struggles and distractions. There in isolation they studied their own inner experience. They noticed a myriad of thoughts and emotions as they felt there inner core, although it somehow caused anxiety and stress. Eventually with vigilant observation the mystics found that when they stopped feeding their thoughts they started to get quieter and quieter. They were quite literally changing their state of mind from the inside out.  

Meditation Yoga scienceThe Mystics in India called this practice Vipassana which means clear seeing.  Today in present scenario we call it as Meditation.  Moving into early 2000s , scientists studying the brain and the effect of brain exercises started to make some surprising discoveries . Brain science was still in its infancy and in fact up until late into the 20th century it was still thought that the brain was solid like concrete, unable to change in its structure. But then they discovered a phenomenon called brain plasticity.  It seemed the brain could actually change.  It could be shaped and rewired by exercise and guess what they found had the power to cause structural changes with Meditation.

Several studies found a whole host of structural changes in the brains of people who meditated. The default mode network which could stimulate wandering and aimless thought grooves was quiet down. The amygdale which processes fear and anxiety reduced in size and activity.  Gray matter in the sensory regions of the brain increased which turn enhanced sense perception. These were startling discoveries and it became clear that there was something to this ancient practice after all, but it’s not just neuroscience. The field of psychology also owes some recent developments to this Eastern philosophy.  The Mystics of old times claimed the simple fact with regular insight. 

types-of-meditation

You’ll see that your thoughts are not real and the recent success of cognitive talk therapy uses this exact same strategy. The subject learns to see the falseness of their own repetitive thinking. They’re simply an interpretation of what is going on not the actuality of what’s going on.
