Motherhood changes life 360 degrees. Being a mother of a newborn baby my life is very much revolving around my little prince. Gone are the days when I would get plenty of time for meditation and Reiki practice.
For the last few years, Reiki has become inevitable, part of my life. It keeps me aligned with my higher self, helps to strengthen my connection with the divine and keeps me grounded too. I can’t imagine my day without Reiki practice.
In this new phase of life, the challenge was to keep up with this practice and soon I discovered a solution.
Breastfeeding has enormous physical health benefits for baby as well as for mothers, so I thought, how about utilizing this time to nourish our mind, heart and soul!
I found out these few ways to keep up with Reiki and spiritual practices while breastfeeding. As a result, every breastfeeding session is filled with positive energies of healing, joy, and peace.
- Gently touching my baby, I request Reiki to flow to each and every cell of his body
- By keeping my hand on his forehead I chant Reiki symbols or sometimes I play them on YouTube
- I draw Reiki symbols on my breasts and imagine breast milk charged with Reiki is reaching to each and every cell of his body. I also request Reiki energy to increase the supply of my breast milk
- I recite different mantras and shlokas. When I am tired I simply play it on YouTube
- I say few affirmations loudly by placing my hand on his heart
- I pray to his guardian angels to protect and guide him. I also pray them to assist me as I have just begun my new journey as a mother
- I love to creatively visualize about future – Eg. My baby is becoming healthier and stronger, meeting development milestones, our family spending wonderful time together, we are traveling together etc.
- When I am tired and have absolutely no energy to do anything, I close my eyes and I request Reiki to flow to all my Chakras
- I invoke Archangel Raphael and request to send healing for my recovery and overall health. I feel his green color light around my body
- If I have a specific issue like back pain or neck pain I request Reiki to flow there
- At times gazing at innocent eyes of my little angel itself feels like a meditation
