The Shiva Technique

Article by João Antão Marques

I don’t know the origins of this curious technique but I consider it a quite interesting way to send distant Reiki or also to be used in an in-person treatment if the need arises.

In the case of distant Reiki, use together with the “Portal of Distance Technique” (in this case you only need symbols 2 and 1).

The problem with this Shiva Technique is that great focus is needed as well as a very strong visualization capacity which, I agree, is very often not so easy to reach. As in normal conditions, we need an average of fifty minutes for a complete treatment (ten positions with five minutes in each position for instance), one way to reduce the time needed for a treatment is to visualize several arms, like the statues of Lord Shiva or Gayatri Goddess, in order to allow all Reiki positions to be made simultaneously.

The Shiva Technique

  • Clean room;
  • Clean yourself (use Kenyoku);
  • Activate Hands;
  • Protect yourself;
  • Make your invocations as usual;
  • Draw symbols 3, 2 e 1, in that sequence, repeating their name thrice and channel the energy;
  • If you are attuned to the DKM (Usui) you can also use it after symbol 1.

You have to be very focused on what you are doing.
