Hello all, in my previous article I had discussed about the Reiki rule 1 i.e Grounding. In continuance with my previous article, for all the newbies I am here with the second most important rule which is Shielding.
Just as grounding is very important before we begin with a healing session, in the same way, shielding is equally important. I shield myself usually immediately after a session but we can shield ourselves before we begin a session too.
What is Shielding?
As the name suggests, shielding is to shield ourselves or protect ourselves. Now the question is from what do we protect ourselves? We need to protect ourselves from the entities, negativity etc. Just as the white color is more prone to dirt and attracts the dirt very quickly, in the same manner, our healed body is very sensitive towards negativity of any sort. It quickly attracts home for entities if not shielded. I am not scaring the hell out of you but it’s a fact. So instead of getting scared shield yourselves pre and post healing.
As I mentioned earlier that successful healing requires grounding and so is shielding. To get results from healing and to motivate yourself to continue with the healing, these tips are must.
How to Shield One Selves?
Now in order to shield yourselves, there are a various method. Few of the methods which I use are:
- Visualizing ourselves inside a bubble. The walls of the bubble being a shield which is permeable to all positivity and non permeable to any negativity.
- Visualizing ourselves inside a sheet of reflective glass bubble. Reflecting back to the source all the negativities. The walls of the bubble being permeable to all positivity and non permeable to any negativity. You can fill the bubble with the Reiki symbols you are attuned to in order to enhance the protection. You can be creative in shielding yourself. Listen to the divine guidance from within.
- Drawing Cho Ku Rei around yourselves also provide protection. (one needs to be attuned to use this symbol)
- Sacred shield symbol of Lavender flame of Quan Yin. (one needs to be attuned to use this symbol)
Apart from the above, there are several others way to shield ourselves, mentioned in many articles of shielding at ReikiRays. I request all the novices to please practice it to enhance their healing experience and to receive uninterrupted flow of healing energies. I am just a channel of sharing the divine information because at one time even I was a novice. For more clarification and doubts please seek guidance of your respective masters and Gurus.
Happy healing to all of you!
