Have you ever wondered why after your Reiki attunenements/ healing sessions, the Masters instruct you to drink lots of water, eat raw fruits and vegetables, take adequate rest and sleep, rock salt water bath, deep breathing, daily grounding, aura sweeping, aura shielding, set clear intentions and positive affirmations during your Reiki healings? The reason is, they are boosters which not only increases the effectiveness of Reiki healing but also ease the Reiki healing crisis (a cleansing process). Following are some ingredients:
1. Drinking lots of Water
During Reiki treatments most of the times, the person may feel relaxed and rejuvenated. However, some people may undergo a situation called as healing crisis. Reiki increases the vibration levels, due to this the toxins which have been stored in body are released in the blood stream and filtered by the liver and kidneys. Therefore, a person may complain of headache, stomach ache, acidity and feel weak. Hence, drinking lots of water removes the toxins from lungs, digestive system in the form of urine, faeces and sweat.
2. Eating Raw Fruits and Vegetables
After Reiki, eating raw fruits and vegetables increases the life force of the body. Our third Reiki Grandmaster-Mrs Hawayo Takata advocated diet of raw fruits and vegetables. In fact her students reported that they would purchase bags of raw fruits and vegetables during her Reiki sessions and Mrs Takata would make favourite juices of celery, carrots, beets etc. She strongly opined that they are blood builders which energises the whole system, promoting good health. No wonder why Mrs Takata looked so young, fresh and with few wrinkled lines even at the age of 80. In short, they boast of tremendously healing power.
3. Adequate Rest and Sleep
This is essential, especially in post Reiki attunement, where the vibration frequency is raised drastically and the body, soul, and mind undergo sudden change resulting in fatigue and weakness. Taking adequate rest, reduces anxiety, depression and further uplifts the mental well being of the person. Moreover, sleep deprivation leads to high stress levels causing serious damage in auras and chakras as well as physical body.
4. Rock Salt Water Bath
Taking rock salt water bath at least once in a week or frequently when under healing crisis, definitely improves energy levels by absorbing negative energy which we accumulate when we are in the negative environment or perceive negative emotions. It further improves immunity levels by cleansing the energy of the disease at the auric level. (Diseases are first manifested at the auric level, then at physical levels).
5. Connecting with the Nature
Spending time with the nature, uplifts the vibration frequency through magical healing powers of trees, breeze, rainwater, sand and beaches, sun, moon etc. Even the birds’ chirping are so melodious to the ears, having calming effects on us. Nature walks/ activities triggers the release of ‘positive hormone endorphins’ which relieves stress, uplifts mood, enhances pleasure, boost energy levels and minimizes pain.
6. Deep Breathing
It improves delivery of oxygen and nutrients, plus accelerates the removal of toxins from the tissues, which results in improved health and resistance to disease. It expands your aura by 2 metres or more and activates the chakras. Furthermore, it builds energy vibration frequency level, which strengthens the connection for drawing in greater amounts of Reiki energy. To add a note, in one of the Reiki attunements, I had emotinal healing crisis (anger, guilt feelings), my Master suggested me to practise this deep breathing technique by inhaling from nose and exhaling from mouth with ‘haaa’ sound and all my emotional negativities were released.
Why are electrical currents in our home grounded? This is for the safety reasons, allowing the overflow of energy to be dismissed, so that there is no damage to the circuits from the excessive voltage. With the process of grounding, we are able to maintain a healthy energetic balance, by releasing the blockages and negativities. It works as a ‘Filter’ which removes unnecessary energy. The flow of energy becomes unidirectional i.e it flows only from you to the other person but does not pick up energy of the other person. When we are intact with Mother Earth, we are stable, protected from psychic attacks. Our intuitive abilities are heightened as guides and angels can’t hit the moving target 🙂
8. Closing the Chakras
During Reiki healing, the chakras are widely opened, which invites energy vampires to suck energy from our auras and chakras. To avoid that, we should either visualize that our chakras are getting closed or seal the treatments with a huge CKR in front of our body.
9. Aura Sweeping and Aura Shielding
Aura sweeping cleanses the aura, removes diseased energy, and redistributes the excess energy to the weaker areas. Aura sweeping calms and revitalizes the person. Aura shielding neither allows any negative energy to seep in nor leaks out any of our energy.
10. Clear Intentions and Positive Affirmations
Intention and affirmations are two different things and both are very powerful. For example, ‘ I intend Reiki to cure BP/ diabetes problem’ and ‘ I affirm that I am healthy’. From the above example, we can conclude that intention pushes the conscious mind to take an action to heal/solve the root cause of the problem which comes in way of desire manifestations. It bridges of what we are and where we want to be. On the other hand, affirmation is positive statement/ visualization of future desired situations. It is the state of being already there (future events) which in turn sets the internal compass and alligns the life force energy to achieve the goals. (Caution – Setting unrealistic affirmation will unnecessarily wound the soul by accelerating soul’s growth. Suppose you are obese and you affirm of having 6 packs abs!!)
So, in order to make Reiki healing more effective, say both clear intentions and positive affirmations. Despite the fact that, Reiki is a very intelligent energy, it will definitely not interfere with our free will 🙂
To summarize, ideally our Reiki healing sessions should be in this following sequence :
Grounding → Say Clear Intentions → Reiki Healing with Deep Breathing → Positive Affirmations → Aura Sweeping → Closing Chakras → Aura Shielding → Expressing gratitude.
So, blend these ingredients with Reiki to maximize its healing power!! Happy Reiki healing 🙂
