Hi Friends. I am a big believer in the Universe communicating to us through symbols. I believe that love is the greatest healing energy and am always looking for new things to combine with Reiki to help people heal.
A short time ago the Universe started showing me Gardena flowers everywhere. Besides the one’s already residing in my back yard I started noticing them out of the blue in unexpected places. They were on facebook, in random conversations with friends, on cards, in pictures, given as gifts to me and others around me. I could smell their perfume fragrance at times even though there were no plants in site. Finally, I decided to look into Gardena’s a bit more and see what the Universe was trying to tell me.
Gardenias are medium sized, beautiful white flowers. They have a strong fragrance that promotes relaxation. They symbolize love, purity, and sweetness. When they open up they have the shape of a 5 point star. Given as a gift they can simply mean, “You are lovely.”
I would love to share with you all here a new method I have been using with Reiki and Gardenias to help purify yourself. This is an amazing routine that helps you feel refreshed and renewed.
This routine can be done out of the bath as a regular mediation. Simply place a few drops of gardenia oil on yourself before your meditation or hold a small gardenia flower in your hand. Then, run through the routine below picturing yourself in a white purifying bath.
Purifying routine with Reiki & Gardenias:
- Run a warm bath. When the tub is filled up place a few gardenia flowers in it. If you do not have easy access to these flowers simply put a few drops of gardenia oil into the bath.
- Make a large power symbol over the bath and say the symbol’s name three times. Next, do the same with the emotional healing symbol. Stand over the bath and beam Reiki to it for 1 min. You are just doing it enough to lightly infuse the water with heling energy.
- Enter the bath and relax. Notice how the water instantly starts to calm and heal you.
- Close your eyes and picture yourself in a white room. Everything is white from the floor, to the walls, to the towels, to the bath tub. It is a space of purification, love and healing. Breathe in the relaxing fragrance of the white gardenia flowers for about 1 min.
- Next, notice that three people come toward you dressed in white. They stand at the foot of your bath and place their hands out in front of you. You notice a white light being emitted from them straight into the water. Instead of being fearful or worried you at once feel a deep state of peace and tranquility sweep over you. The water you are sitting in is filled with a loving purifying energy that is gently cleansing all that is bothering you away. One by one they take a clear glass pitcher and pour the warm purifying water over you. Stay in this space for 5-10 minutes. Everything is being washed away from you. You are at peace.
- Open your eyes and make one power symbol over yourself to seal the session. End your bath and enjoy your new relaxed state the rest of the day. Give thanks.
Sending love and light your way.
