This is a bit of a quick tip that is a combination of a mediation technique I learned from a spiritual teacher years ago and the use of Reiki. It will quickly refresh you as you go through your day. You can also slip away into a bathroom in a stressful situation and use this technique and come away better able to be present, loving, and diplomatic. It is very calming and healing, and though it only takes a few minutes, it can actually serve to heal layers of issues.
The Violet Flame is a living energy that can assist you in healing and in releasing energies that are ready to move out of your system. It is wonderful at transmuting energy and at it will likely help you to begin to understand more about transmuting energy as well.
To use this technique, stand in front of a mirror and offer Reiki to yourself. You can do this by directing the flow from your hands, or by beaming Reiki from your eyes. Allow the focus of your eyes to settle on your Crown chakra and intend that Reiki flow there as you take 1-3 deep breaths. Ask the Violet Flame to assist you and feel it flow with the Reiki in to your Crown. With every out breath, release anything that needs to move out of you now.
Direct your attention to the Third Eye and repeat these same steps. Do this with each chakra until you have reached the Root chakra. Then direct the flow of Reiki and the Violet Flame toward the hands for a breath or two as well, asking that all you touch be blessed. You may also choose to do this with the feet, asking that your footsteps touch the Earth with peace and love.
Lastly, envision the Violet Flame embracing your entire body. Feel it encircling you and clearing away any remaining debris that may have been loosened. Allow yourself to let it go. Feel the Violet Flame moving through you and lifting you back into Divine grace and alignment. Feel the wave of peace the moves through you. Take a deep breath.
You may wish to do a version of this between healing sessions with clients to assist you in releasing any energy that you may have picked up from the session, as a form of energy hygiene. For this purpose, it might be good to focus especially on the head, heart and hands, as well as doing the full body clearing at the end.
After doing this very loving exercise, your chakras will be cleared and balanced and you will feel cleansed and very relaxed. Remember, Reiki reaches through time and space, so there are no bounds to the ways this may heal your life! Be open to what your experience may be.
