Reiki is a gentle, magical and powerful tool that can be called on with all end of life transitions. When someone close to you passes or is about to pass it is completely normal to feel helpless. How can you make the situation better? How can you make it pain free? How can you have the strength yourself to make it through? Is there really a way you can help an animal or person transition? Yes! Reiki can be your guide.
Reiki is all knowing and the perfect tool for what can be a very overwhelming and difficult time. Please see the information below for the basic ways Reiki can help during times of death and transition.
1. If a person or animal is about to pass but seems scared you can help alleviate their fear. Do a basic Reiki session on them and set the intention that their fear be taken away and replaced with peace and love during this transition. If you are not able to do a session in person send them some Reiki distantly.
2. If you need help with the strength to carry on during the transition of someone very close to you call on Reiki. Do a self-reiki session and set the intention that Reiki allow you to be strong, loving, and a beacon of bright light to the soul that is transitioning to the other side.
3. If you would like to make a situation better (taking away pain when dying, taking away stress, or anything else) you can do so by visualizing it in front of you, making a Cho Ku Rei symbol in front of it, and then beaming Reiki to it for 2-5 minutes. Always state that you are sending Reiki for the greatest good of all. It is also important to note that you are not changing life lessons that need to be learned or played out but simply making it as light as possible. Reiki is all knowing so you never have to worry about if it is working or if the right thing is happening.
In order to get into a lighter space before sending Reiki energy think of a time of love and joy that you had with this person or animal in the past. Really let yourself feel this energy for a few minutes and feel as if you are really there. Call on that feeling when you start your Reiki session with the person. This will allow you to send as much Reiki energy as possible. Your Reiki session will be very powerful.
Reiki is a tool of love, light, and supreme healing. Use it as much as possible to make saying goodbye as loving and peaceful as possible. Remember to be kind to yourself and allow the experience to take place. You have Reiki (one of the most wondrous tools of all) on your side.
