Article by Justine Melton
Have you ever wondered how some Reiki Practitioners are able to offer their clients intuitive messages during a Reiki session? Have you ever noticed yourself becoming more intuitive with the more Reiki experience you have?
Reiki allows us to naturally learn how to tune into ourselves and to the world as a whole. If you are interested, it can also help you be able to channel messages from the Universe, God, Source, Other dimensions, Angels or really anything that matches your beliefs. Reiki helps you to bring out your own personal gifts. If you don’t feel like this is something you want to do that is perfectly ok. This article is meant for those wanting to learn how to channel. Everyone has different gifts. If one of your gifts is a very strong intuition or empathic type qualities then Reiki Channeling might be something that could be beneficial to you.
I am an open channel and am able to download messages at any time. However, this was not always the case for me. It wasn’t until I learned Reiki that I was able to feel free, confident, and at one with source to be able to trust and receive the messages I was receiving. I am able to channel at any time. However, I have noticed that my most detailed messages usually come while I am doing a self-Reiki session.
Many of my students have expressed that they wish they could channel. I routinely receive emails from people asking how to channel and people wanting to book sessions just to learn how to do it. It seems to be something that more and more people have an interest in. Reiki offers a safe place for people to do so.
Channeling is something that almost anyone can do. Of course, there are all different levels. There are people who get short helpful messages and there are people who could write books with what they are getting for themselves and everyone around them. Truly, you do not need to be a well known psychic or Reiki Master to channel messages. The more we trust ourselves and connect to source through meditation or Reiki the easier it is.
Below you will find how I teach people to channel through Reiki. Please keep in mind that everyone is different and you may find some parts work for you and some don’t. Always trust yourself and do what works for you! Keep in mind that the more you practice channeling through Reiki the easier and more natural it will become.
Reiki Channeling 101:
- Protect Yourself: This truly is the most important step when it comes to channeling. Protecting yourself and trusting any info you are feeling or getting is really all there is to it! You need to make sure you are surrounded in light and that your messages are from a place of positivity…not from a dark energy. The good news is with Reiki as your friend you have an amazingly powerful natural protector!
To protect yourself envision a white ball of light wrapping around you just like a bubble. Make 1 large Cho Ku Rei over yourself and say, “I am happy that the white light of God’s love and divine protection is surrounding me. Nothing negative may pass through.” Feel free to change this statement to match your own beliefs.
- Self-Reiki: For channeling purposes you do not need to go through all of the different chakras like you would most likely do in a typical self-Reiki session. Remember, that Reiki is all-knowing and you are just the vessel. So, the positions are mostly just for our human mind anyway. Simply, make 1 large Master Symbol (or Cho Ku Rei) over the palms of your hands and over the middle of your body. Allow your hands to rest across your chest or anywhere that feels comfortable to you. You can do this in any position you like no matter if you are sitting or lying down.
- Intention Setting/Open Channel: At the start of your Reiki Channeling session be sure to state an intention that is something like, “I am happy that Reiki is allowing me to connect straight to the Divine and channel messages straight from source. I am open to all messages from the Divine at this time.” Again, be sure you say whatever matches your own personal beliefs. Sit in this space for 10-30 minutes. Notice any thoughts, feelings, sounds, visions or messages you are receiving at this time. At the end of the time frame say thank you to Reiki and for any messages you may have received. Finally, end the session by grounding yourself. An easy way to do this is to simply make a backwards Cho Ku Rei over your body.
This method is a great way to allow yourself to practice connecting to Source through Reiki for channeling. The more you do it the easier it will become. Be patient with yourself and give yourself time to figure out what works best for you. I always recommend keeping a journal to record how your session went and any messages you feel were received. It gives you the ability to track everything, gain confidence and see your progress in a tangible way. If channeling is something that interests you let Reiki be your guide.
Happy Reiki Channeling!
