I have seen an increase in the energy flow when I channel Reiki from my altar than other parts of my home. I have also sensed an increased energy flow while sending Reiki outdoors. It is a good practice to do your daily healings and meditations from one place in your home.
When you keep praying or healing at the same spot, this becomes your meditation ground or your energy circle. This sacred space knows your personal energy so well that, it calls upon your guides the moment you step into this energy circle. I have noticed whenever I light an incense at my altar I can immediately sense the presence of some Angel or Archangel. I have been doing this for so long, that they know it’s time for me to meditate or do some healing, so they immediately come by my side.
How do you create an altar? What can you keep in this altar? How do you clean your altar? First, you need to find a flat and broad surface few feet above the ground. This could be outdoor or indoor. I am of course talking about an indoor altar. You can place some Reiki or Angel photos or statues in this place. If the surface is made of marble or granite, you can just use it directly, as it will provide natural grounding when you do your energy work.
If it is wood or plastic, you can use a nice table cloth. Keep your statues on the altar. Keep your Reiki / God box on the altar. You can also place Reiki symbols on the wall near the altar or in a photo stand. I have made a large collage of all the Reiki symbols. Chakra positions and Kanji alphabets in the wall near my altar. I also have photos of Dr Mikao Usui as I really like connecting with him often.
Keep your tarot or oracle cards on the altar. Always keep a little bottle of perfume to spray on the altar. Incense and / or candles are a must, as fire cleanses negativity and clears space. Basically, keep all your healing tools in one place. They will pick up energies from each other, which is good because we tend to use one tool more than the other. This way your energy will spread evenly on your cards , statues, symbols, paintings etc. And whenever you feel a drop in your energy, you can draw energy from these charged objects.
Use rock salt and water to clean and wipe the altar. You can also run some incense or sage over the altar, because the altar also has an aura. Some practitioners keep saying their energy flow has reduced or they feel their energies are scattered, this could be one of the reasons. When you’re at home channel energy from one place, you will start conserving it and your healing ability, meditation skills, mind control, visualization skills will all enhance.
