Reiki brings a new awareness into your life that is unsurpassed. It opens you up to life force energy and allows the universe to communicate with you like never before. Synchronicity will run rampant through your life and you will most likely notice the universe communicating with you through symbols. Often what happens is that something will start appearing in your life almost out of nowhere. Once acknowledged the universe will then send its next message to you. If you notice something starting to stand out to you look up what the symbolism is for that object. Often times something will stand out to you and you will immediately feel in your gut what message the universe is trying to get to you.
The Universe uses common things when starting to communicate with you. Once you are able to acknowledge messages you are being sent communication will get easier and easier. Common things that you may notice showing up in the beginning are colors, a certain animal such as a hummingbird, raven, owl, or in my case a stink bug! You may also notice a certain song being played to you over and over at all no matter where your location is, a particular flower that is suddenly everywhere you go (often in odd undeniable places), or notice that you keep thinking of a certain person. Relax and go with the flow! The more you flow with it the easier communication with Universe becomes.
Recently I have had many images of mermaids appearing to me out of nowhere. I have noticed them in odd places (books, magazines, online, in an email from a friend, coffee mug, starbucks, t-shirt, card from a friend, party theme, t.v. commercial, etc) to the point where I said, Thank you Universe. I will look up what you are trying to show me.” I even had a mermaid necklace that I thought I had lost months ago suddenly appear in my purse out of nowhere. I was pleasantly surprised with what I discovered about mermaids and am happy to share it with you. Maybe this mystical being will have a special message for you as well.
- Freedom of life
- Feminine Beauty
- Dual Natures
- Deep Situation (Go deeper with a given situation. Do not just stay on the surface.)
- Sensual Power
- Confidence in your physical body
- Use the beckoning gifts that you have
When I notice a symbol being sent to me over and over from the universe I have a short routine that I recommend doing to help you receive the correct message that the universe is trying to send to you. A lot of times when you learn Reiki you question if you are really getting these messages or worry that whether or not you will interpret it correctly. Let Reiki help you with this! I will use the symbol of the mermaid as an example here.
How to receive the message the universe is trying to send you with the help of Reiki
- Once you notice a routine symbol coming through such as a mermaid make one large power symbol and one large emotional healing symbol over the it.
- Make power symbols over the palms of your hands and then send Reiki to the symbol for 5 min. During this time let your mind relax and be free. Try to allow any messages to come through no matter how strange they may be. There is no limit to how long you do this. Go with whatever feels right for you.
- At the end of the 5 min write anything that came to mind during this time in a journal. If nothing jumps out at you right away give it a week and go back and look at what you wrote. Something will almost always jump out at you at this time. Give thanks for the message you just received.
Wishing you all love and light.
