Reiki is an incredibly powerful practice helping us to embrace, heal, and empower our bodies; likewise, Reiki makes us able to love ourselves and others. The secret to this is in the degree of awareness and devotion given to the symbol with clear visualisation used on the specific chakra giving forth the sound. We must set our desire with the right intent, (ensuring no other being is losing out as a result of our desire). The power of the mind can surprise one with its sheer brilliance. Reiki educates us how to invest love, time, and energy on things that someone wants with long-lasting results.
It suffices to say that Reiki must be followed with faith, zeal, and a courageous heart, so that one could be able to adjust oneself even in an unfavourable condition, while most of us get anxious and panic then not being able to come out of it, the cause behind is it being conditioned in favourable circumstances only. For instance, when a big wave of anger has come to the mind, just raising an opposing wave of love to control that is the mystery. Love is enhanced by love and enmity increase with revenge.
Anahata chakra comprises with all divine virtues (love, brotherhood, peace, and harmony), which distinguishes us humans from animals. Anahata also called the Heart chakra is known as the home of Reiki. Anahata chakra is situated in the Sushumna Nadi as it has control over the heart and one of the most balancing chakra. It corresponds to the Cardiac Plexus in the physical body like being the small inbox of the soul.
In Reiki, the Heart chakra has its own importance as a bridge between the three lower chakras and three upper chakras. Chakras below the heart represent the materialistic life, whilst the ones above the heart represent the spiritual journey, so on the way, the aspirant sees himself in the heart of all beings and all beings in his heart. The Heart chakra encloses the five senses (taste, smell, hear, sight and touch) that must be balanced for the spiritual journey.
The lower three chakras representing the worldly affairs matter, that is why someone whose lower chakras are more active than the upper chakra can enjoy physical pleasures and want to stay here. They cannot be bothered with the spiritual journey. For example, a person who is rich and has all materialistic luxuries but yet still cannot find peace within. While, if someone who has upper chakras that are more active rather lower three chakras can enjoy spiritual activities. For example, a person who has peace of mind and is calm may even be religious but is not in a good financial situation, you will also find them more generous even with the little they have. The Heart chakra, therefore, enables one to keep both the upper and lower chakras balanced by being the link between them.
The mind lays out branches of temptation for us to travel, it is up to us to cut those branches timely and live in the moment rather than past or future. So, unbalanced senses cannot provide satisfactory results because they are being influenced by lower chakras, and hence the wise should be aware and remove unhealthy bonds to balance the upper chakras as well.
“The soul that moves in the world of the senses and yet keeps the senses in harmony, find rest in quietness” – Bhagwat Gita.
Five senses are the servant of concentration as Guru Nanak Dev has described in the Japji Sahib. Only Dhyana (meditation, concentration) has the power to help control our senses and enable well-being. The senses are powerful; however, the meditation is more powerful than senses. False attachments are the spawn of the senses and they do not let us know our true self. Truth is, an unpolluted Heart chakra conveys to us how to live a normal balanced life. In our day to day life, we may initiate control over unhealthy habits and not with Dhyana, in that situation forgoing instincts compel to adopt past habits without any further reasonable changes. Hence, the unconscious mind remains unchanged. The unconscious mind is just a hard disk, whatever is stored then remains forever. This is why a recovering alcoholic or former drug addict may relapse as they initiate the control over the habit but due to the habit being on the hard drive. Through Meditation a person can erase the information from the soul hard drive and thereby release any unhealthy habits permanently.
Inner meditation leads one to live in an ecstasy realm, so to such a person, the infinite reveals itself. Karuna Reiki®’s symbols (OM, ZONAR, HALU, HARTH, RAMA, GNOSA, KRIYA, IAVA, SHANTI) offer the sturdy foundation to clear all rubbish/junk. It is suggested to apply all Karuna Reiki® symbols upon the Heart chakra and the Third Eye.
If you want more enhanced results, visualise DAI-KO-MYO upon the Heart chakra and ZONAR upon the Third Eye. Then sit in meditation for a long time, then you will truly know the stillness of the mind. Stillness comes when false attraction disappears. Dormant virtues and divine capabilities spring and eventually bloom into a mighty tree of enhancing supremacy.
