Ask Reiki Rays Podcast #22: Should I Put my Hands in the Prayer Position and Invoke Higher Beings Every Time I Send Reiki?

Prayer Position

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.

Thank you.

Answer by Haripriya Suraj:

Hi Aleksandra, this is Haripriya.

It is perfectly possible for you to activate the flow of Reiki without having to use your hands each time. Since you are a second-degree practitioner, you can use the Reiki symbols to activate Reiki in all kinds of situations.

Whenever you wish to send Reiki, visualize the distance symbol in your mind’s eye and connect with the person or situation that you wish to send Reiki to, and request Reiki to flow. This can be done anytime, anywhere, and it hardly takes a minute.

Ultimately, you can draw the Power Symbol on both your palms first thing in the morning and intend that Reiki flow through your palms throughout the day. This will result in Reiki flowing to all activities that make up your day without you having to consciously give Reiki each time.

Do the symbols ritual every morning and stay connected with Reiki all day. Ultimately, it’s all about intention. Your intention to get Reiki flowing has the power to activate it.

Sending you love and light.

Thank you.

    Dear Haripriya Suraj

    Good Evening

    I want to know what I have to speak to request Reiki to flow. Is any specific word/sentence or any easy or right word/sentence. Please guide me.

    Thank you

      words are yours, what your emotion says, words do not matter, only intention is enough
