Reiki is so healing and calming – don’t you wish that you could have Reiki at all points in your day?
What if you could? How much better would you feel?
I created a simple mediation story that helped me bring Reiki into my life and my day, as a conscious distant healing method that all Reiki practitioners can use. If you aren’t attuned to the three Reiki symbols, simply send Reiki Energy forward, with the simple intention of “Cleansing, Clearing, Releasing and Healing”.
Imagine yourself in an open, airy space outdoors, with bird song quiet in the background, light breeze rustling through the open leaves on the trees. A beautiful meadow with no one else around, calm and peaceful.
It’s a leisurely day for you, no cares in the world. It’s warm and sunny outside, not too hot, not too cold, just right to feel the warm of the sun beaming down on your head, shoulders and body.
You feel invited to stretch out on the green grass of this meadow. As you lay down on your back in the grass, palms facing upward, you feel the warmth of the earth reach up, enfold you within its grounding power, and encircle you within its quiet embrace.
As you enjoy this deep, calm connection with Mother Earth, you look up and see wondrous clouds moving by in the sky. Big, beautiful, fluffy clouds, all the shapes of the earth, and all the colours of the rainbow appear in these clouds.
Staring at these clouds fills you with peace, watching as they drift by you, pushed by the light breeze in the meadow. You start to focus on one cloud, this cloud seems drawn to you for a reason you can’t explain. Bring your full gaze to it, and describe in your mind how it looks to you.
What colour is your cloud? Is it a pure white cloud, tinged softly on the edges with a silver that ripples from light to dark? Is it a sunrise cloud, filled of promise and hope of the new day, mixes of bright purples and reds?
Is it a majestic raincloud, filled with powerful greys and indigos, sparkling with flashes of brilliant golden lightening?
Or is it a sunset cloud, filled with smoky greys, blues, yellows and purples, bursting with energy of the finished day and transitioning from day to twilight?
How big or small is it? Does it encompass the heavens, or would it fit into the palm of your hand?
Feel the connection between you and this cloud. Send it some love up there, in the vast sky all alone. Let it feel some of the love and amazement you have while gazing at this stunning example of creation.
Draw the Hon Sha Za Sho Nen (HZN) symbol in your mind, or with your hand. Say the words in your mind to invoke the symbol. Send this symbol into the cloud. Feel the cloud receive your offering of energy with gratitude, love and thanks of its own. Sense the Reiki energy sign being absorbed by the cloud. Feel the energy that this symbol brings to the cloud and your body.
Next, draw the Sei He Ki (SHK) symbol in your mind, or with your hand. Say the words in your mind to invoke the symbol. Send this symbol into the cloud. Feel the cloud receive your offering of energy with gratitude, love and thanks of its own. Sense the Reiki energy sign being absorbed by the cloud.
Next, draw the Cho Ku Rei (CKR) symbol in your mind, or with your hand. Say the words in your mind to invoke the symbol. Send this symbol into the cloud. Feel the cloud receive your offering of energy with gratitude, love and thanks of its own. Sense the Reiki energy sign being absorbed by the cloud. Feel the energy that this symbol brings to the cloud and your body.
Now, send Reiki energy through to this cloud, imagine pure light energy, pure love and intention being sent to this wonderful, magnificent cloud that you are drawn to. Feel Reiki energy being sent by your eyes as you gaze upon it. Feel Reiki energy being sent by your breath, your palms, your heart, your feet, and your aura, sending energy towards this beautiful cloud.
See the Reiki energy being received by the cloud. Feel how the cloud responses as it is sent such kindness, love, and compassion. Feel the bond between you and this cloud grow with each passing breath as you send Reiki into this cloud.
Watch as the cloud simply accepts this gift and absorbs the Reiki energy, watch as it changes shape with delight at the new energy, deep with understanding and knowing that this energy makes the flowers grow brighter, trees grow stronger, and nourishes animals that find its energy through raindrops in the world.
Feel the Reiki energy slow and come to an end, signaling the cloud is sated with fresh healing, healthy energy. You thank the cloud for accepting the Reiki energy, for allowing you to help provide energy for its mission – and you thank your guides and Source for the gift of Reiki.
But still, you feel the cloud has something to tell you, so you become very still, very quiet, to listen intuitively to the cloud. You feel it has a surprise for you, but what could it be?
The cloud has a mission, it tells your soul, its mission is you. Its purpose was given to it by Source, and it is to provide you love, compassion and kindness throughout your day. It’s tried to connect with you so many times before, but you always thought it was a just a simple raincloud, nothing more.
Your cloud is so happy and excited that its made a deep, lasting connection with you. It wants you to know that it’s here for you, always and forever. Whenever you need to, just bring the image of the cloud into your mind and it will shower you with Reiki energy.
This Reiki Raincloud is a personal power base of Reiki energy that you can draw on both day and night, know that you are able to tap into this cloud at any time you need – in your past, in your present, and in your future – through time and space.
Realize that at any point you are able to come back to this meadow and again bond with your Reiki Raincloud, and send it, and yourself, Reiki energy for when you need it.
