Heavenly Energy

reiki

Once connected to the Earths Energy, the next on to practice is connecting to the Heavenly Energy.  Just the same way we connected to the Earths Energy we use the same process to connect to the Heavenly Energy.  The symbolic body part that holds the Heavenly energy is the head.  Emanating from the Heavens is a light and this is Heaven energy, it is less physical than Earth energy.  The clarity of this energy aids the practice of stillness within which we remember our spiritual connection.

This is an Active Meditation.

  1. Stand up feet hip width apart, gaze gently at the floor whilst spine is erect and arms comfortably positioned at the side of your body.
  2. Visualise above your head a bright ball of energy.  This beautiful ball is drawing on the energy of heaven, it is light and bright and the ball is filled with a magnificent ethereal energy.
  3. Breathe in, and as you do so raise your hands and clasp the ball of bright light and then bring the ball of heavenly energy down the centre of the body to the Hara, hold it there as you pause and feel yourself filling with heavenly energy, then as you breathe out through the crown to rest above your head.. Do this 4 more times.
  4. Stand in the space of Heavenly energy, its brightness and lightness, its clarity, and when you are ready seat yourself back down and stay in your meditative place whilst you reflect of you experience of this Heavenly Energy.th2U7GJZ1D

 

STRENGTHEN YOUR EARTH ENERGY

reiki, The mind

When beginning Reiki Self Healing we must strengthen our Earth Energy.  The energy that emanates from the Earth is heavy,  powerful and grounding offering both physical and mental strength.  When we are grounded we feel strong, secure and safe as well as physically connected to the environment.

This is an Active Meditation but begins sitting comfortably.

  1. Focus on the breath, and say – “I am open to receive whatever it is that I may need at this moment in time” Now as you breath out let go of anything negative, relaxing your mind, body and heart.
  2. Bring your mind down into your Hara, focus on this area (below the navel).  Breath in slowly and really connect to this area.  Now take your focus to the centre of the Earth, and experience the pull the Earth has over your energy as it blends with your energy without any physical moment actually occurring.
  3. On the in breath, dip down and scoop up some of the energy of the Earth and move it into the centre of your Hara, retain this connection as ou slowly release the breath.  Intuitively sense your connection with the centre of the Earth, before breathing in, dipping down and scooping up some more of th energy of Earth and move it to the centre of your Hara.  Let your breath go leaving the sense of Earth within you.
  4. Again breath in, scoop, breath out, retain the Earth Energy.  Feel the Earth within you.  Sense the energetic space you have created in your body and around you.
  5. Make a decision to remember this grounded sensation as a real place where you can exist and function on a daily basis

REIKI PRACTICTIONER DAILY PRACTICE

reiki

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!

 

 

Daily Energy Routine that Works

reiki

HearthMath Source – Scientists have long known we could detect imbalances in the subtle energy field before it was apparent in the physical body. We could interpret this to mean that imbalances actually begin in the energy system. All of the tissues and organs in the body produce magnetic vibrations referred to by scientists as “biomagnetic fields.” One example of this type of field is the vibration of the heart — it is so strong that it can produce an accurate EKG reading three feet away from the body.

So there just cant be anything more important than balancing our energy, more important that supplements, exercise and even sleep.

Try out Donna Edens amazingly quick and easy to do energy routine everyday.  Do it for 30 days and see the differences in your life after this time.  Simple and effective.

 

 

21 day Reiki Cleanse

reiki

 

Reiki is an extremely powerful tool for healing. Often people consider Reiki a therapy to learn so that they can treat others. They overlook the fact that Reiki is first and foremost a self-healing tool. This is exactly what I found on my journey with reiki.

I started out learning reiki to add to my list of therapies for healing others, never did I imagine how it would affect me. I heard from people it is a lifestyle but my first few years with reiki was on and off and I never fully understood this, until more recently. I believe in everyone’s life you can rediscover things you already knew but they can take on a whole new meaning. What is for you will definitely not go past you.

Reiki teaches you to be the best version of yourself.

All too often we live in a state of imbalance. We eat processed foods complete with chemicals and toxins. We lead very busy lives and fail to take time out to relax. We also don’t sleep sufficiently, then we try to counter our tiredness with caffeine and when we do want to relax we can use substances such as food, chocolate, alcohol and cigarettes to assist that relaxation. All of which add to the levels of toxins in our bodies.

Once Reiki begins to work it will redress the imbalance, hence the clearing process. For example, after your Reiki attunement, you may find you have a thirst you can’t quench and therefore have to drink copious amounts of water. This is Reiki’s way of helping us to clear the toxins from our bodies. The cleansing process helps to clear away all sorts of imbalances and blockages that we have. This includes all mental, emotional and physical aspects.
When we have lived our lives in a state of imbalance for so long, it will begin to feel normal. When that balance is shifted, we can struggle with that change and begin to feel emotions and physical symptoms that we don’t feel comfortable with. This is just our body’s way of dealing with the change. Everyone has their own experience of Reiki and no two people are exactly the same but often people report experiencing/feeling:-
• Irritable
• Emotional (highs and lows)
• Detached (and wanting to spend time alone)
• Serene Calmness
• Shaky
• Nauseous
• Fatigued
• Symptoms of physical detoxification such as extreme thirst
• Vivid dreams

I have experienced anxiety and confusion which lead me to believe I was a fake and a failure and how could I possibly help anyone else if I can’t even help myself.

Then I reminded myself over and over again of the precepts and I noticed that I was not being compassionate towards myself. The quietening of the mind and rebalancing of the chakras had brought out unresolved issues that I was now able to deal with. This can put people off from learning reiki and mediation but until we learn to face our dark side we can never truly overcome it. With practice, the faith and belief that reiki is within us and is here for only our higher good we can know that we are never alone and are all part of the energy field of reiki.

Reiki will work on bringing your chakras into balance throughout this cleansing process. It will begin with your base chakra and work its way through all the others until it reaches the crown chakra. It takes around 3 days for the energy to move through each of the 7 chakras and this is the reason for the clearing taking approximately 21 days.

In order to help yourself through this clearing process I would suggest that you:-
• Make time to treat yourself with Reiki every day.
• Drink plenty of water
• Reduce, or cut out, your intake of processed foods and eat a well balanced diet.
• Reduce, or cut out, your intake of toxins such as alcohol, nicotine and caffeine.
• Keep a journal so that you can monitor your progress. Record your thoughts and emotions, often this can help with a release of any mental or emotional blockages.
As you are attuned to each level of Reiki you will experience a cleansing process and may find that you experience similar symptoms, but equally you could have a very different experience each time.
Please do not read the above and worry about this process. It is important to know that Reiki always works for your highest and greatest good, so trust what is happening, because Reiki will always know what is right for you.
The Cleansing Process

Everybody experiences different symptoms during cleansing. Just like when you start cleaning dusty areas, the dust first rises up in the air, a Reiki attunement causes the negativities to be released from our body via minor problems.
Depending on the degree you have been attuned to, your cleansing process might involve minor physical, emotional or spiritual problems. After any attunement, have complete faith and watch what happens for the first 21 days. There might be some discomfort, but that is no cause for alarm. You will slowly start feeling more and more comfortable as days pass after the cleansing period.

Daily Practice
The importance of daily practice cannot be over-stressed. We are surrounded all day by germs, negative thoughts and emotions, and energy-snatching components. By the end of the day, we pick up negative energies and our energy level is also low because people, events and thoughts have siezed it from us.
Daily practice is a way to fill up on this lost energy and cleanse the accumulated negativities. Even though a major portion of the cleansing takes place in the first 21 days, the subsequent days also add towards the cleansing. It takes about three months for the true effects of Reiki to start showing. Daily practice not only makes you healthier physically, but adds to your progress mentally, spiritually and in other aspects of your life as well.

Short-cut Self Healing
The more one practices Reiki everyday, the better it is for that person. However, there are some days when we are too tired to complete the entire procedure, and we are tempted to skip the self-healing altogether. On such days, there is an alternative way.
There are seven main chakras in our body, and typically, we heal the front and back of these chakras, along with a few more points. When we have too little time, we may heal only the front of these seven chakras. Considering that you heal each chakra for three minutes each, the practice will be over in 21 minutes. If they are healed for two minutes each, the entire self healing will be over in 15 minutes.
If you are practicing short-cut self healing on two consecutive days, on the second day, heal the back of the chakras instead of the front – this will help keep your energy more balanced.
This technique should be used only occasionally and you must try to practice the complete self healing as much as possible, Complete self healing should be practiced
ATLEAST twice a week.
Time contraints are only in the mind, and if you make Reiki a priority, you will never have too little time for Reiki. Practice Reiki when you’re in the bus, while watching television, while on the phone, or in meetings. If you are embarrased to keep your hands on the chakras, place your hands on your knees and give Reiki.

 

The Effect of Reiki
Daily practice is extremely beneficial to a channel. It is almost as if a guiding light constantly monitors your progress and well-being. At times, we find that our friend circle is changing, for Reiki causes people who don’t contribute to our progress to drift away, and attracts those people who contribute to our progress in some way. Some describe the feeling as a soft blanket keeping them safe and warm all the time.
Reiki takes you in the direction that you want to go. While some people experience gigantic leaps in their spiritual journey, others remain in the same state for years. It is up to you to make a conscious effort to determine what matters the most to you in your life, and work in that direction. Reiki will accelerate your progress in that direction.

One needs to have faith in Reiki that whatever is happening to us, is for our own good alone. Becoming a Reiki channel does not mean that you will never have any problems again, or that you will never fall sick again. Problems and pitfalls are often triggers for our progress, and if they are needed, you will be blessed with them. The advantage with Reiki is, it helps you get back up on your feet faster.
Reiki does not work for negative intentions. If you wish bad for somebody and send Reiki to harm him/ her, it will not work. Think positive and wish everyone well.

 

 

Sacral Chakra

Chakra, reiki

 

The sacral chakra or Swadhisthana is the second chakra.

It deals with feelings of sexuality that allow expression of emotions when the chakra is open without being overly emotional or overactive. Emotions are kept in balance and you become more passionate and lively. When the sacral chakra is balanced, you will have no issues dealing with sexuality.

The sacral chakra is situated in the lower abdomen about 1-2 inches below the navel. It controls your sexual organs and reproductive system including ovaries or testes. It also controls the bladder and the kidneys.

Functions of the Sacral Chakra

Physical health

While this chakra is responsible for the proper functioning of the reproductive system, its organs and hormones, the energy of the sacral chakra is also responsible for the administration of the lymphatic and circulatory system and the urinary tract. As the sacral chakra mainly deals with purification, the chakra plays a role in removing toxins out of the body. Some say that the sacral chakra is represented by the spleen in men and uterus in women.

An imbalance in the sacral chakra can cause many physical issues such as urinary problems, kidney stones, lower back pain, gynecological problem and prostate problems. It is therefore important to keep this chakra in balance to maintain a healthy physical health and stay away from such problems.

Emotions

The sacral chakra being the ‘seat of emotions’ it’s mainly responsible for producing joy, ambition, love for yourself, healthy relationships and creativity. When this chakra is in balance, you are more comfortable with expressing your emotions and you do not get suppressed by other people’s power. However, if this chakra is blocked or dysfunctional then you will become shy, helpless, and weak.

Since the sacral chakra governs the reproductive system, it also deals with the stimulation of the production of various sexual hormones or hormones that develop pleasure, joy and other emotions.

Basically, your chakra is in balance when you sexual energy and sex drive, and are comfortable with having a sexual relationship with someone and you feel no negative emotions while having sex. You can express your power easily and sex is done for a fair exchange and it’s not weighted on one side only.  You have a blocked sacral chakra when you do not have any sexual desires and try to avoid having sex as much as possible, hence reducing its importance in your life. You do not feel sexual sensations normally and these sexual sensations are often weak and disappointing.

Also, when this chakra is balanced, there is no neediness, no feeling clingy, and therefore no jealousy.

 

Healing the Sacral Chakra with Reiki

Reiki practitioners might have their own technique for balancing the sacral chakra, below is just one of the methods that many find effective.

Image result for sacral chakraThe Sacral Chakra Symbol
  1. The Reiki practitioner will place their hands by the patient’s sacrum. Some practitioners unblock the chakra by rotating to the right for females and for males, they rotate to the left – but it’s better to do what feels right for you, or if you’re not certain, just send energy to the area, it will do the right thing :). This can be done on the front or the back of the person. This not only unblocks the area, but is also known to help with reproductive problems and prostate problems.
  2. Some practitioners will associate the blockage with mantras. The first is often the ‘vam’ sound. Others prefer aroma therapy to clear this chakra such as the usage of sandalwood or ylang ylang oil. Gemstones can be used as well to purify the chakra such as carnelian and moonstones.
  3. When the Reiki healing is finished, you will feel that the aura surrounding this chakra will glow orange in its pure state. Many people often tend to sleep for more than eight hours when the chakra is cleared in a fetal position. You may also envision moonlight and clear water after or sometimes even during the process of Reiki.

The chakra opens to universal energies and once it is unblocked you will feel the freedom of expressing your emotions without any discomfort or displeasure. By healing your chakra, you will not only heal your physical self which includes your reproductive system and other organs, you will also have cleared your emotional and sexual blockages.

Reiki Energy – We all have it!

Happiness is a choice, and a skill

The Precepts are the bridge between how you experience your life and how you want to experience it.

Happiness, steady happiness, isn’t a luxury, or a carrot on a stick. It is both a choice, and the skill to be able to make that choice.

Abiding happiness doesn’t just happen. It doesn’t magically appear. Happiness isn’t in your future unless you learn how to be happy now.

Your body constantly responds to your emotional state. Stress and depression damage your health and influence your choices in ways you might not recognize, making it harder and harder to choose to be happy.

Happiness is a necessity

Happiness is essential to health and well-being, and it is your true nature.

You are happiest when you are yourself. When you are happy, you make good choices that help you stay that way. And happiness enables you to function at your highest capacity, to bring your best self, and greatest creativity, to each moment of every day.

Happiness is contagious. Creating your happiness is a primary responsibility and social obligation.

When you are happy, you inspire the people around you to be happy — both the people you love and even those other people who would be so much easier to be around if you were happier and knew how to stay happier!

Your happiness will not improve until you make it a priority. Even if you were magically infused with happiness, you still need to know how to maintain it.

Now is the time to take control of your happiness.

REIKI PRECEPTS

Today only,
Do not anger,
Do not worry.

With thankfulness,
Work diligently.

Be kind to others.
