Exercise: The perfect Reiki treatment

The consumer is now comfortably positioned on no matter is out there: couch, mattress, yoga mat, sturdy eating desk or skilled therapy sofa. (Please be sure you place a cushion below their knees to alleviate any pressure from the decrease again.) Ask them to shut their eyes in order that they'll calm down. Then prepare your self:

1. Put together for Reiki

I begin with dry bathing (Kenyoku-Ho) or a Reiki bathe to take away any psychological or bodily power blockages after which take a second to settle down and calm down.Your consumer is fortunately mendacity down and received’t thoughts ready one other minute or two.

2. Set your intention

Do that in whichever method is greatest for you. I place my arms in Gassho for a second to centre myself, then set my intention to provide a Reiki therapy.

3. Connect with Reiki

I simply state to myself (and to the universe): ‘I intend to hook up with Reiki.’

4. Really feel the connection

Wait till you really feel the Reiki power. This is essential. Take your time. You would possibly really feel a sensation in your palms or just have the attention that you're now linked. (Deep belly respiratory may help right here.)

5. Join with the consumer

Standing beside the consumer, I slowly decrease my arms, meaning to make a reference to the consumer’s aura/power physique. I spend a second sensing this. (If this step causes any difficulties, simply depart it out. It's on no account important.)

6. Place the arms

After this, I lastly place my arms on the physique (or barely away from it, whichever has been agreed and is suitable). There are a number of choices:

  • Utilizing the basic sequence of 12 hand positions as taught by Hawayo Takata and utilized by the vast majority of Reiki practitioners. Maintain every place for 3 to 5 minutes or so long as feels proper.
  • Going straight to the issue space (if that is clearly identifiable).
  • Utilizing the body-scanning or Reiji-Ho technique to find out the place to put the arms.
  • Any mixture of the above. (Please notice that it feels extra comfy for the consumer if just one hand is moved at a time.)

7. Observe your instinct

Even if you're following a set sequence of hand positions or the consumer has requested you to put your arms on a selected space, nonetheless hearken to your instinct. It‘s completely fantastic to finish up utilizing just one or two hand positions for all the therapy. Actually, I have a tendency to search out {that a} very fast succession of positions signifies that the practitioner is fairly inexperienced and hasn’t discovered to belief their instinct but.

8. Ship Reiki into the aura

Earlier than I end I spend a second sending Reiki into the consumer’s aura. I don’t suppose many practitioners do that, however I wish to sense the reference to all the ‘power individual’ on the finish of the therapy. I slowly elevate my arms with the intention of bringing Reiki into all of the layers of the aura.

9. Clean down the aura

On the finish of a therapy most practitioners ‘easy down’ the aura. To do that, the arms are moved over the physique from the pinnacle to the ft (a bit like stroking a pet, solely with the arms a couple of centimetres away from the physique). That is usually executed thrice. The concept behind it's that stale power could have been launched throughout the therapy and must be cleared out of the physique. However don’t fear in case you overlook to do that – I’m positive the stale power will disappear of its personal accord. In spite of everything, you’ve simply given Reiki!

10. Conclude the therapy

You now have to make the consumer conscious that the therapy is over and produce them again from their splendidly serene and peaceable state. Or, if they're asleep, wake them up. In both case, it's good to be mild (a bucket of chilly water isn't ultimate). I usually place my hand on their shoulder and inform them in a low voice that the therapy is now full and so they could take as a lot time as they should come again to the right here and now. Or I exploit the backstroke, making use of mild strain with the knuckles of my index and center fingers on both aspect of the backbone (not within the center!) and making three swift actions in direction of the decrease again. This method is utilized in many hands-on therapies.

11. Thank Reiki

I then place my arms in Gassho for a second and thank Reiki. In spite of everything, it wasn’t me who gave the therapy – I used to be simply lending my arms.

12. Floor your self
