Reiki Ball for Healing

Article by Haripriya Suraj, Reiki Master

A Reiki ball, also known as an energy ball, is a very useful healing tool. In simple terms, a Reiki ball can be described as a chunk of Reiki that is brought together in the form of a ball. It comes in handy in a variety of situations. It is a tool that can keep Reiki flowing to people or situations. There is no limit to how creative one can get while working with Reiki balls!

How to Make a Reiki Ball

For those hearing this for the first time, here’s how you make a ball of Reiki.

  •  Rub your palms for a few seconds until you experience sensations of warmth.
  •  Curve your palms slightly so it resembles a flower bud.
  •  Begin to move your palms apart until you feel strong sensations of heat or a kind of magnetic force between them.
  •  Move your palms up and down in circular motion, like you would if you were carving a ball. Feel or visualise a ball of energy between them.
  •  If you are attuned to symbols, infuse the ball with the symbols of your choice. Visualise the symbols in the ball and it will be done.
  •  Don’t worry if you can’t feel much initially. As you practise, you will be able to sense the ball in your hands.

Uses of a Reiki Ball

The following ideas serve as a reference to help you get started. With practice, you will find that the possibilities for healing with Reiki balls are virtually endless.

If you work with affirmations for healing, place a Reiki ball over the affirmation or on the page that has your writing.

Reiki Box
Whenever you work with your Reiki box, place a ball of Reiki in it. This will keep your intentions continuously charged with Reiki. If your Reiki box is in your phone, push the ball into the Reiki Box App.

Physical Healing
When there is a need for physical healing, push a ball of Reiki into the affected body part. In the case of internal organs, push the ball into the body, just over the location of the organ. Intend that the ball goes into the affected organ and heals it. (This is not a substitute for medical treatment and must be done alongside whatever treatment your doctor prescribes). 

Pain Relief
If pain relief is needed, program the Reiki ball with the intention that it heals pain. Then push it into the body part or organ that needs relief from pain. (This is not a substitute for medical treatment and must be done alongside whatever treatment your doctor prescribes). 

Spread Love
If you wish to send your love to someone, program a Reiki ball with the intention of sending love and toss it into the air. Pink being the colour of love, you can also visualise pink light inside the ball. Intend that the ball goes to the person and makes him or her feel loved. The other person may not consciously realise what happened. They may just experience feelings of love and warmth when the ball reaches them. This practice can bring in more love and harmony to all relationships.

Romantic Love
Program a ball with the intention of sending romantic love to your partner or spouse. Throw in some pink light as well. Toss the ball into the air. Intend that the ball reaches your beloved and conveys your unconditional love and acceptance to your partner.

Whenever you are in emotional pain, program a Reiki ball with the mental-emotional symbol and Master Symbol (if you’ve done third degree). Throw in some pink light and push it into your heart chakra. You can also push it into other parts of your body as you feel guided to. Intend that it brings you comfort and peace. Let go and witness the spontaneous healing that occurs.

Program a Reiki ball with the Power Symbol and Master Symbol (if you’ve done third degree). Intend that it stays with any object, place or person that needs protection. Place it over your house, over babies and children and over your belongings. You could send it along with a loved one who is travelling. Place it over your vehicle whenever you travel. Place it over food and water.

Plants and Animals
Place balls of Reiki over plants in your garden. Push them into trees. Intend that the energy helps your plants stay healthy and nurtures your garden. Place it over a pet or other animal that is unwell or needs protection.

Finding Misplaced Objects
If you’ve misplaced something, make a ball of Reiki and request it to go in search of the missing object. Toss it into the air and visualise it going away in search of the misplaced object. Thereafter, pay attention to your intuition. You may receive clues as to where the object is or you may see the location of the object in your mind’s eye. Trust the impressions you receive and look for the object as guided to. It can also happen that you are physically directed to the place that has the misplaced object.

Program a ball of Reiki with the power symbol. Toss it into rooms and other spaces that have accumulated negative energies. To thoroughly cleanse a room, place a ball of Reiki in each corner of the room. Push a ball of Reiki into the walls, the floor, the ceiling, windows, doors, wardrobes etc.

Now it’s time for you to get creative and experiment with Reiki Balls! Let your imagination run wild. Have fun!

    I use an energy chi ball when I send out reiki energy using my crystal reiki grid. Works wonderfully !
    I make the ball with symbols inside and release it upwards above the center stone.

    • Gabi August 10, 2016, 10:46 am

      Hello! Just wanted to tell you to make sure to cleanse/protect your grid because it can be affected/attacked/programmed by negative people. It is a more complex situation this one, for talking extensively here, but just wanted to point this out for your knowledge and well-being. All the best!

      • Jorge August 10, 2016, 1:31 pm

        Not sure exactly what you mean by “grid.”

        • Erika August 30, 2017, 1:01 pm

          I believe that Gabi means when you create a grid for protection, abundance, healing etc you can push an energy ball into it, but you need to be aware that the grid needs attention from time to time. 😊 Hope this helps?

    Thirty years ago I did a course in Spiritual Healing where we learned to make energy balls. I was very excited to find that my dog would jump up and nose one if I threw it in a game. Astounding to me in those days.

  • Amudhan February 28, 2015, 5:51 am

    Should i start the entire process after activating reiki or without activating reiki

  • Sondra February 28, 2015, 2:51 pm

    just recently I began using something similar in releasing energy that no longer serves the highest good. I feel the energy culminating and I combine it into a ball and release it to the Universe for the highest good. Is this okay?

    • Erika August 30, 2017, 12:57 pm

      Sounds like a beautiful idea 😊

    Reiki balls work!! My daughter had a very rare & painful heart condition which was finally cured by a very skilled electrophysiologist, praise God! However, she went through weeks of severe chest pains, palpitations & nausea for which there was no medication available. She was dying a slow death. Thank you for the article on Reiki balls a few months ago. With that healing method I was able to lower her heart rate and diminish the palpitations every evening until she was finally treated by the surgeon. God bless you abundantly, Haripriya and much love to you! Namaste!

  • Bhawna May 11, 2016, 8:19 am

    For how long (maximum) Reiki Ball works ? Can we send 1 Reiki Ball for same purpose (Like:- Good Health, wealth or prosperity) to different people at a time ? Please guide with your precious advice.

    • Jorge Rivas May 11, 2016, 1:50 pm

      Hello, Bhawna. In my Reiki training I was taught that it’s preferable to have permission from the person or persons before you send Reiki. However, I was also taught that you can still send Reiki to numerous people anonymously if it’s positive and for their highest good. Theoretically, they will either accept it or reject it when they receive it in that case. I don’t believe there’s a limit to the number of people you can help with Reiki. Also, you need to use/trust your intuition on this one.

      The length of time varies from person to person and also depends on the illness or condition and karmic state of the recipient, i.e., is it a lesson they’re having to endure for some reason. Sometimes healing is spontaneous and sometimes it takes days or only brings relief from the symptoms and not a complete cure. With my daughter’s heart condition, I needed to apply Reiki every evening until she had surgery & was cured forever. Two days ago, she had bad cold/flu symptoms which I attributed to detoxification. I did a Reiki healing session in the evening. By mid-day the following day her condition had improved significantly. We need to trust that whatever happens is for the highest good.

      I hope this helps. Namaste!

    My body. I’m not sure what this means but I experienced tingling in my head during reiki ball!
