Invoking reiki; the heartfelt prayer

At the beginning of reiki session we invoke reiki; the mysterious divine healing energy. This invocation must be the most intense, emotionally charged and powerful enough such that it captures whole of your attention and you get focused on the white light and sahasrara chakra. Remember the universal law; what we really feel from heart, the Universe is bound to listen to that.

  • Before starting the reiki session, always ask your patient to close his eyes and be thankful and welcoming towards divine love and healing energies that he is going to recieve. You can also ask them to focus on some pleasant feelings, white light coming to them or some symbol they already use in their meditation practice if any.
  • Irrespective of the dis-ease or problem, always give reiki to manipura chakra, because this is the power center from where the absorption and regulation of prana occurs and this chakra always get affected whenever there is any dis-ease or problem.
  • Always ask your patient to increase his water intake as water help in circulating energy, keeps cells in healthy conditions and help in removing negative energy through urine.
  • Before giving reiki treatment counsel the patient with aim of shifting his focus from problem to solution. Motivate him to open up with you and tell you whatever issue he is holding onto. Show him specific ways that will help him in bringing positive changes in his life.
  • If the time and conditions permit, give reiki to ear because there are many nerve that end here and are connected to brain and other organs. Every organ has a nerve supply which can either speed up or slow down the functions of that particular organ and therefore giving reiki to ear will not only heal many organs simultaneously but also will remove negative energy / thoughts from brain.
  • Never say reiki cures. Instead say reiki balances and allow the body to heal itself. Never give prognosis or false hope. We never know how and when reiki is goint to work for the patient.
  • Ask the dis-eased person to increase spinach (palak) and beetroot (chukandar) intake for atleast 15 days. This will increase the hemoglobin level, which will greatly help in better absorption and retention of prana thereby expediting healing process and permanent results.
  • Never play with the trust your patient has on you. Always honor his faith. Always follow code of ethics for reiki practitioner.
  • If you are frequently dealing with patients, it is good idea to take rock salt water bath in order to release any negative thought forms you may have taken subconsciously.
  • It is natural that the dis-eased person will also show some psychological things like lack or decrease in confidence and lack of enthusiasm, upto some extent. These things will get healed automatically when you heal the dis-ease.
  • Ask the dis-eased person to wear loose and comfortable clothes for reiki session and the healer should also wear comfortable clothes.
  • Treat until you feel the rise and fall of energy, or if you do not experience energy physically, just treat for 5 minutes at dis-eased part or area.
  • Ask your patient to write the things that are not working in their life the way they want.Include all areas as it would help in figuring out where exactly the problem lies more easily.
  • Make sure that during treatment patient does not cross either his leg or hands. This indicates unwillingness to heal at subconscious level.
  • Place your hands at about 3-4 inches above the dis-eased area. Patient must not feel the weight of your palm.
  • Reiki balances and heals surgically removed organs for example ‘phantom limb’. Tell the patient not to worry about it if he feels any sensations or something in that area.
  • Create a healing environment as it would Facilitate the psychological healing. It is very important to relax your patient both mentally and physically. Use some easy exercise to relax physically and use hypnosis or affirmations to relax mentally.
  • At the beginning and end of healing session always ground both yourself and the dis-eased person. End the treatment by sealing the dis-eased person’s energy field by drawing the power symbol on his solar plexus and have an intention “I seal (his name) energy field with love”. “He is always divinely protected and guided”.
  • During reiki session try to embed exact affirmations into his subconscious mind which are useful for him.
  • Remember that you are not medical doctor, therefore never make guesses about anything medically and do not take any chance. Do not ask patient to stop taking medicines. Advice him to relax mentally and physically. Advice him what food or things will naturally boost his energy (stamina).
  • Never attach or relate yourself with patient in any way. You will end up catching negative energy from dis-eased person.
  • Some healer feel drained after giving reiki. Reason for this is wrong intention. You are supposed to give reiki coming from universe and not your own prana. Also after the session is over detach yourself from patient (close reiki channel between you and patient) by using raku symbol and the method your reiki teacher has taught you.
  • Do not educate your patient about dis-ease. It becomes seed of new negative psychic impressions.
  • When using crystals, follow your intuition. Also one crystal may be best for someone but may not work for other. The Amethyst and rose quartz are the crystal that works almost with everybody. Do not use crystals if dis-eased person feels uncomfortable.
  • If you use aroma essence or soothing music, always ask first if the patient is allergic to some smell and whether he is comfortable with the music or not.
Finding energy imbalance and aura scanning, cleansing

There are many techniques for finding energy imbalances in the patient’s etheric system. Different reiki teachers use different techniques to dig out the root cause of the problem but as a general technique the point where we feel heaviness, warmness or rise and fall of energy is the place where we need to send reiki. For exact details follow, discuss and practice exactly what your reiki teacher tells you. The aura scanning and cleansing is again a subjective matter and you should follow what your reiki masters teaches you.

Giving reiki treatment; body response and side effects

When we give reiki treatment to the patient the body response varies from person to person. Some tends to heal very quickly while some shows increased resistance. The patient may feel rise and fall of body temperatures, body being heated or as if a current is flowing through his body. He may find that his diet and thrust for water has considerably increased. As a side effect some patient tends to withdraw themselves from people around them just because they are feeling inner peace. The level of stress and short temperateness decreases significantly. Sometimes an emotional outburst is also experienced. Some people have reported that they feel as if they are flying; physical body has no weight. Whatever happens during reiki treatment should be taken positively. Remember reiki does not harm you in any way; it is your ignorance that you do not understand the healing phenomenon.

Guidelines as per the dis-eased area

First of all understand that no dis-ease appears all of a sudden. Their lies a karmic seed (unfulfilled actions) of dis-ease in you which over a period of time manifest itself in the energy body (etheric body) first and if not dealt here will eventually appears in physical body. It is wiser to burn / release this karmic seed before it manifest itself in physical plane. Listen to your mind, body and be in touch with your emotions. They give many warning or hints about which dis-ease is likely to manifest. It is rightly said that ‘Prevention is better than cure’.
