Jump starting your day.
Set the alarm clock 10 minutes early to hit the snooze button once. (If you are like me and already hit the snooze one or more times you can miss this first step.) As soon as you hit the snooze button – place your hands on your body and start doing Reiki and enjoy the next 10 minutes of Reiki bliss.
If you have the symbols activate them. You can place them in the palm of your hand. I know someone who draws them on the rough of her mouth with her tongue and other people who merely visualize them. It is not necessary to do all of the hand positions as time is limited. You can also just hold your hands on your body in one place as the Reiki energy will go where it is needed. Relax and enjoy the next 9 minutes until the alarm goes off. You will feel refreshed and good about the fact that you have already started you day off with the Reiki.
While watching TV do Reiki on yourself.
Place your hands on your body and start doing Reiki. If you have the symbols activate them. It is not necessary to do all of the hand positions if time is limited. You can also just hold them on your body in one place as the Reiki energy will go where it is needed. You will be surprised how commercials don’t seem to bother you as much because you will be much more relaxed. You don’t mind waiting for the show to return as it means you can keep on soaking up that wonderful Reiki energy.
How to comfortably treat your knees and toes while sitting and doing Reiki on yourself?
I find it very easy and comfortable to beam Reiki energy to my knees and feet rather than bending over and trying to do hands on. Just hold your hands up facing your knees and feet, state your intention and beam.
Energize your food!
You hear all of the horror stories of the additives and preservatives in our food. Help yourself and your family but giving Reiki to you food before you eat. If you have the symbols use the power symbol. You can also use the mental/emotional symbol if you or someone who will be sharing the meal with you has an issue with food such as using food for comfort or who use food as a release from other issues. If you don’t have the symbols beam to the food by stating your intention and holding your hands up so the Reiki energy flows out over the food.
Energize your vitamins and/or medication
Give Reiki to the medication to help increase its acceptance within your body and its effectiveness.
If you have the symbols use the power symbol. You can also use the mental/emotional symbol if you have any emotional issues or concerns about the use of the medication or its potential side effects.
If you don’t have the symbols beam to the bottle by stating your intention and holding your hands up so the Reiki energy flows out over the bottle.
Energize a room
Use Reiki to charge a room. This is especially helpful for meeting rooms .
If you don’t have the symbols beam to the room by stating your intention and holding your hands up so the Reiki energy flows out. I know no one wants to draw attention to themselves by beaming in a room full of people. Try getting the meeting first and use that time to beam. If it is not possible then bring a cup with you if you can. While holding the cup up to drink you can send Reiki to the room. You can also sit with your hands slightly to your side and turned slightly outward so your can beam.
If you have the symbols draw the power symbol. You may also want to use the mental/emotional symbol as there are often relationship issues and emotions that can emerge during meetings.
I have done this on numerous occasions and been pleasantly surprised by the outcomes of the meetings especially ones which had the potential to be very difficult.
Mind working at warp speed?
A quick and easy way to quiet your mind is to put you hands in Gasho position. Gasho is one of the pillars of Reiki Bringing your hands together in front of you holding them about the height of your heart. Concentrate on where the middle 2 fingers meet. If any thought arise acknowledge them, dismiss them and bring your concentration back to where the midde 2 fingers meet.
With repeated practice of the Gasho meditation I now find that just bringing my hands into Gasho position helps me rebalance and relax. Try doing Gasho meditation every day for a few weeks and see if you experience these same results.
