The intensity of the healing energy passed on by a Reiki healer depends on his or her affirmations and intentions. In a healing session, after you have requested the Reiki to proceed with its work, it is important to focus on a positive outcome. There are several ways by which this can be done.
Different masters have defined different kinds of techniques that can help in focusing on the final outcome. The most common practice is that of actual visualization. However, this may not be easy to implement as not all people have good visualization power. In order to get best results it is better to use a technique that you are comfortable with.
If you are not able to visualize then you can simply pray and ask Reiki to do what is best for all those who are involved in the issue. Another simple techniques is to close your eyes and bring your mind to a point where it stops thinking and then start chanting any divine mantras. It does not matter what your religion is or what mantras or chants you believe in. All that you need to do is close your eyes and start chanting the divine prayers. For some practitioners, this is the most powerful technique that one can apply for healing.
The more you practice the Reiki principles in your day-to-day life the more your healing powers will magnify. There is a lot of confusion regarding the principles as well. Many people feel that it is not possible not to get angry at all or not to worry at all. However, they are perhaps actually not trying to understand the underlying logic.
Feelings like anger, jealousy, revenge creates agitation within self and these feeling are so negative that it can drain out the energy from the physical body. We all know that cases of ailments such as heart attack or high blood pressure are often seen in those who have a bad temper or take too much of tension. By controlling these emotions we can save a lot of energy that can be channelized in the right direction.
First thing that you need to understand is that Reiki can heal anything and this reason is sufficient enough to discard negative emotions. When you have the power to heal there is no point in getting tensed about the future or to regret about the past. What is the need to worry or to get upset once you have mastered this art of healing? Giving up negative emotions is nothing but living in awareness of the fact that you can heal anything and there is nothing that you should be afraid of. You may encounter some situation where you may have to show anger. The most common situation is when children do something wrong and parents express objection. Under such a situation if at all you have to shout or express your anger you should do that in awareness. The anger should be on the surface and not create agitation within.
