Reiki and Relaxation

Article by Darshan.S

Relaxation – a state where we are free, a state where we let go. We let go of our rules, beliefs, and control.

We all know that one of the most evident benefits of practicing Reiki is the state of relaxation that we experience. But what many people don’t know is the more consciously you relax yourself before giving a Reiki treatment to someone else or yourself the easier it becomes to channel purer and an increased flow of Reiki energy.

Every time that we heal someone the chances of our energies mixing with the flow of Reiki exist. It takes quite a bit of practice to be just an observer, a channel to the flow of Reiki and not get overwhelmed to direct Reiki to attain the results that we seek.

Reiki is an intelligence that is higher to us. So it is better to let it do the healing and that we allow ourselves to just sit back and observe.

Relaxation is the ability of an individual to let go. We let go of the control that we exercise on ourselves and let the body be in its natural state. In this state the body is more in-tune with the healing energies of the Universe.

The Technique:

  •  Firstly begin by invoking Reiki and calling all the Reiki Masters, Guides, Angels and Spiritual Helpers to assist you with the healing.
  •  Then shield yourself and ground your roots deep into the Earth.
  •  Visualize Reiki as a white ball of light (you can visualize a different color if you want).
  • Ask the energy to help you relax completely and deeply and begin to draw the light into your toes. Allow them to relax and let go of all control that you hold over them.
  • Once you feel that your toes are completely relaxed continue to draw light into your ankles.
  • Continue drawing light into your calves-knees-thighs-hips-stomach-solar plexus-chest-throat-shoulder-arms-hands-fingers-back of the body-lower back-middle back-upper back-back of the head-scalp-forehead-eyes-ears-mouth & facial muscles.
  • Relax and let go of all these parts in a sequence and fill them completely with light.
  • At the end of this you will find yourself to be completely relaxed and at a different state of awareness.

The more you practice this technique the more quickly you get into the state of relaxation. You will also experience a more calmer and relaxed state that is free from stress and tension in your everyday life.
It will also increase your chances of having an Out-Of-Body experience and you will be in a better state to receive and interpret the guidance and wisdom that you receive from your higher self.
