Question by Aleksandra:
I’m a Reiki practitioner level II in the last two months and I’m still questioning myself all the time if I want to start my day with Reiki and live Reiki and be Reiki and do Reiki all day long.
For example, I want to take a shower in the morning, and then I want to Reiki the food for my cat, and then I want to send Reiki to my bed and maybe some certain situation.
The question is, should I actually put my hands in the prayer position every time, invoke Reiki and supreme beings, and then channel the Reiki, and after that I have to say thank you? Do I have to do that every time for every single thing I’m doing? Like, when driving a car, if I’m going to send Reiki to an emergency vehicle that is coming across, or if I’m having a dinner with a whole bunch of people, it’s not going to be OK if I put my hands in the praying position and start doing all that.
Since I don’t want to become like OCD and I believe that’s not the purpose, if anybody can explain me how to send Reiki during the day – that’s basically my question.
Answer by Darshan:
That’s a very good question that you have asked.
Let me tell you that I have faced similar situations where it really was impossible for me to invoke Reiki and the divine beings. In my experience, it is important to invoke Reiki and the divine beings every time we heal. But since that isn’t really practical all the time, what you can do is…
1. You can draw the Reiki symbols mentally on whatever you want to send Reiki to.
2. You can imagine or visualize whatever it is that you want to send Reiki to being engulfed or covered in white light, or any other colored light if you prefer.
3. You can also state an intention, like Reiki, heal and bless this food, or Reiki, flow through me and heal that tree – or anything. Energy flows where attention goes – so just stating a clear intention can also direct Reiki.
These are some of the techniques that I personally use when it is not possible for me to invoke Reiki.
