Anyone who has gone through a Reiki Attunement knows that it brings on a 21 day cleanse. During this time you may feel a great release and feel light and joyous. It is also possible that you may feel all sorts of things, experience flu like symptoms and in more serious cases may even go through a healing crisis. Some people may experience a mix of both high and low feelings and go back and forth between the two. My experience consisted of an assortment of different symptoms and a deep purging of toxins with each attunement I received. Basically, I got to experience the stomach flu with all 3 of my attunements! ☺
After an attunement it is very important to take good care of yourself. Make sure to get out and exercise, drink a lot of water, take a salt bath, practice daily self-reiki, meditate and most of all listen to your body. During this time notice if any colors speak out to you. Colors have amazing healing properties and can add a special extra touch to your Reiki sessions.
Once I became a Reiki Master I was guided to start recommending the use of the color blue after a Reiki attunement. The color blue is a wonderful healing color, eases stress, helps with grounding and cools down inflammation.
Here is a simple guided meditation with the color blue that is perfect for the 21 days after a Reiki attunement…
- Begin by Reiki-ing the space that you will be doing your meditation session in. I like to use the Master symbol but use whatever calls out to you!
- Turn on some relaxing, soft music that will help you more easily get into the zone.
- Light a candle that helps you relax. Blue or white are recommended here but if something else speaks out to you go with your gut. This is about healing YOU after all and not what may be best for someone else.
- Lay down in your space and close your eyes. Spend two min allowing yourself to just slowly breathe. Concentrate on your breathing and notice how your chest slowly fills up and then slowly empties with each breath.
- Picture a big ball of crystal blue light hovering right above your body. Let this blue ball of light slowly fill the entire room with its healing energy. Visualize the blue light expanding out into every corner of your space.
- Allow yourself over a period of five min to then slowly breathe this light in and out. With each inhale imagine the blue light coming into your body full of healing energy. With each exhale imagine the blue light carrying away anything that is bothering you.
- After this step picture a glass pitcher filled with over flowing blue light above you. Imagine your spirit guide or angel holding this pitcher and gently pouring this blue light over you, starting at your head and slowly going down to your feet. The blue light gently and slowly washes over you just like water. Allow yourself to feel this blue light that is like refreshing water to wash over you for a good five min. Imagine that all that is troubling you washes away as the light passes over you.
- Pay attention to any messages you may feel you are getting from your angel/spirit guide or source during this time. You may be surprised at what transforming thoughts come to you.
- At this point picture that a loving ball of blue healing light moves over to you and then surrounds you like a soft bubble. Imagine that it is there to stay for the rest of your day. It is protecting you, healing you, and surrounding you with loving healing energy. At this time open your eyes and be grateful for the healing you just received with the help of the color blue.
- Lastly, ground yourself with the version of the Reiki grounding symbol you were taught.
This meditation can be done at any time you feel that you need to heal or relax.
Wishing you all love and light.
