No. 1 – Surrender with Reiki
“My tip is not to get caught up in what you think Reiki should be doing, Reiki will always work for the highest good, so just surrender to the outcome and let Reiki do its work.” –Andy – Newcastle-Under-Lyme, England
No. 2 – Reiki Sleep Trick
„If I can’t fall asleep at night I put my right hand on my Heart chakra and my left hand on my Third Eye chakra. Before very long I am fast asleep thanks to Reiki!” Marlene – Toronto, Ontario Canada
No. 3 – Reiki calling in Prayer
„I say a Metta prayer for each client at the end of their treatment” Andrea – Victoria, British Columbia Canada
May all beings be Peaceful May all beings be Happy May all beings be Safe May all beings Awaken to the light of their True Nature May all beings be Free
No. 4 – Aura Healers
„I have found I am much more effective (giving Reiki) when I do not touch the other person. I hold my hands just above the person, I work in the aura. I don’t know how I got to do it this way but I found it works. I feel the energy flow much stronger and so does my client. Amazing isn’t it? I love it!” Ellen – The Hague, The Netherlands
No. 5 – Use your Intuition
„My best advice would be to trust your intuition and guidance. You can’t do it wrong as long as you are coming from a place of love and gratitude. Remember it’s all about intention and your intention is to help others heal themselves from within.” Jenniffer – Sumner, Washington USA
No. 6 – Reiki Ball for Healing
„To send healing to your garden or local park, as you take a walk there, connect to Reiki and ask for Reiki to flow in your normal way. Gather this Reiki energy into your hands and create a beautiful ball of Reiki energy. Place this ball anywhere in nature as you take your walk, then continue to create and place the Reiki energy balls as you enjoy time outside.” Fay – Scottish Borders, Scotland
No. 7 – Powerful healing combination: Yoga and Reiki
„A combination of – using Reiki symbols (CKR, SHK, HSZSN) upon your hands and then practicing yoga poses (especially ‘downward dog’ and ‘cobra’ poses) daily upon the grass, in bare feet, while deep breathing and using positive affirmations during each pose are great for grounding your self, deeply connecting with Nature/Gaia Mother Earth energies/and healing both self and Earth on many levels.” Writeous – Brampton, Ontario, Canada
No. 8 – Protection and Shielding
„During these times of hurricanes and earthquakes, I felt very anxious because my brother was in the path of hurricane Irma. The only thing I had in mind was to set up a crystal grid of protection for his house. I used Archangel Metatron’s cube as the base, lay down my crystals and added feathers, a tiny bottle of holy water, a candle, and a miniature statue of Ganesha for protection. The focus was to incorporate fire-earth-water-air nature elements to keep them in balance and out of harms way. That plus added Reiki and prayers kept my brother, family and home safe.” María Verde – Mount Pocono, Pennsylvania USA
No. 9 – Keep it Simple
„Keep it simple. Practice for at least 3 min. Place hands on your heart or stomach. Don’t fuss on all positions but make time for 3 min. Reiki is that simple technique can be practiced absolutely anywhere and anytime.” Srimanju – Dublin, Ireland
No. 10 – Stay Grounded
„Grounding can be challenging for those starting to use Reiki. I always give tips to my students to help them ground.
Keep the energy centers in the feet open by giving them a good rub or soaking in Sea salt. Tap or stomp the feet after giving Reiki to keep them clear.
Imagine you are a tree. The feet are roots, the torso is the trunk, the arms are branches, and the head takes in energy from the sun/universe. As you take the negativity from your client, push it down into the feet to feed it to the earth, like a tree taking in carbon dioxide to the roots. Take in the energy from the universe at the top of the head (Crown Chakra) to pull positive energy into your arms and hands to give to your client, like a tree taking in sunlight to help produce oxygen and release it from the branches. Inhale deeply as you pull in energy from the universe, and exhale as you feed energy to the earth.
Sometimes my students prefer to imagine themselves as a different type of plant, but it all helps them root to the earth and grounding.” Laurie – Burton, Michigan USA
No. 11 – Morning Routine with Reiki Symbols
„I start my morning by walking into big CKR, SHK, HSZSN symbols and absorb the incredible vibration as I give thanks to God and set my specific intention for the day.”
Kim – Chesapeake, Virginia USA
And our Reiki Rays team has an extra #IAmReiki tip for you.
to Enjoy the Journey.
There are plenty life lessons to be learned, no whining about that! And even our very true Self is at stake! But relax, take it slowly and enjoy every challenging situation on the road. As an adult, we might think children are playing but they are never just playing. They are always learning and developing their skills to achieve the next level through playing. It’s the most enjoyable way of learning and evolving. Turn into a playful and joyful adult and everything will come naturally to you!
Reiki blessings to all of you and Thank you for making us part of your journey!
