Article by Rinku Patel
Over the years, I have come across Reiki practitioners who lack the basic knowledge of Reiki. There are few who are newly attuned to level one who are still confused but hesitate to take their queries to their teacher. I want them to know that these confusions are pretty normal and there should not be any hesitancy asking your teachers about the queries.
There are few who gave up practicing just because they felt Reiki is not working for them on the basis that they don’t get healed or their wishes not getting manifested. Okay so, let me tell you one thing here. Reiki always works but not the way you may want it to, may not be giving the outcome you had in mind and hence you felt it is not working. Reiki works for the highest good and hence at times you don’t see immediate result because the healing is happening from the root issue. And don’t forget, you are still level one, wait till you are introduced to symbols in level 2 and the magical life after level 3. Have patience and keep in mind that Reiki works for the highest good and at the right time. At times healing duration varies from issues to issues and person to person, so don’t compare with others.
There are few who have doubts on their Reiki energy because they don’t feel any vibrations or cold/hot sensations. Well frankly, I felt nothing till I did my level 3. There were times when I too had doubts and on the verge of giving up. Then through a friend I stumbled upon Reiki Rays website and articles here, especially by Ananya Sen and Haripriya Suraj, help me find my lost confidence. The vibrations in palms, hot-cold sensations or any other sensations are not mandatory. Be rest assured that your Reiki is still working and flowing through you even if you feel nothing. Energy is reaching wherever it is needed. Don’t doubt yourself and Reiki and let the Reiki flow and keep practicing.
Must do after reiki level one
Self-healing: Self-healing is must for 21 days after the attunement. It will help you go through the detoxification phase if you are going through detoxification. Also, daily self-healing will keep your chakras balanced and unblocked, giving a healthy and happy life. Follow the self-healing hand positions taught to you by your teacher or find one here.
Shielding: Another most important thing is shielding and protection. Shielding techniques will keep you protected from negativities, lower energies, psychic attacks and evil eyes. You can follow the methods taught to you or find one here.
Grounding: Grounding is one of the most under-rated aspect of healing. Grounding not only keeps you rooted to mother earth, but it has other umpteen of benefits. Details about grounding can be found in one of my previous articles All about Grounding.
Chi-ball: Practice chi-ball more and more as it is one of the easiest and quickest method of sending healing and sending wishes to Universe. Initially you may not feel energy between palms, but don’t worry. Just make your chi ball, put intentions and release it.
Aura Cleanse: Cleansing aura will keep you refreshed, healthy, happy and free of negative emotions. Cleanse aura to get rid off accumulated negative energies and blockages.
Healing friends and family: After level one, apart from yourself, you can also heal your friends and family in person. Distant healing is introduced in level 2.
When to do
Self-healing: Whenever you have time
Aura cleanse: Best is to do at first thing in the morning and last thing at night. (okay if you do any time, do no set rules about timings)
Shielding: After aura cleanse and multiple times during the day whenever required.
Grounding: Best is morning or else whenever you have time.
Meditate: Even for few minutes, start meditating.
Chiball: The more the better, anytime.
Reiki is a huge topic and it is not possible to cover everything in a manual so I suggest you keep reading Reiki related book and articles to gain more and more knowledge.
There is much more you can do after Reiki level one, above I have written only about the MUST DO things. You can start giving Reiki to food, wallet, bed, medicines, kid’s books and everything and anything. Just don’t get discouraged because of silly reasons like it is not working or not getting vibrations. Have faith and patience.
