You can use all of these steps, or some of them, and feel free to add or continue those actions that have already worked well in your life.
Sit in a relaxed, meditational position.
Get in touch with Earth energy for grounding — imagine you have roots growing down from the base of your spine (root chakra) all the way to the centRE of the Earth, connecting you securely with Mother Earth.
Draw the symbols that you are attuned to into the palm of each hand.
Place your palms over each chakra, beginning at the crown and working down. Skip the third eye but when you have reached the root, place one hand on the root chakra (your back, bottom of spine) and the other on your forehead over the third eye area.
As you place your palms on each chakra, take a deep Hara breath (breathe all the way down to the belly) and envision that the symbols are entering that particular chakra and filling your entire being with their energy.
Do Kenyoku (dry bathing) technique to dislodge any negative energy and make way for positive energy.
Go into Gassho position and recite the 5 Reiki Precepts three times slowly, reflecting on them as you state them.
Do a personal “invocation” or “invitation” to Reiki to fill your being and your living space. Ask to be surrounded by healing light as you go about the tasks of your day.
Give thanks to Reiki for being part of your life and for healing you.
Take a few deep cleansing breaths, let your face and heart smile — and you are ready to begin your day!
