Boost Your Energy With 3 Unconventional Reiki Techniques

Ever since I started practicing Reiki, I’ve been curious and excited about what this spiritual practice could offer.

And I was right.

Reiki is a fascinating energy healing practice due to its variety of methods and combinations for cleansing and healing.

But the exciting part comes after you’ve learned these methods.

Incorporating them into your daily self-treatment creates the perfect opportunity to dive deep into your emotional layers and boost your self-awareness.

This is where you realize you have yet to tap into your whole potential.

You discover you can be a light source for those lost in the maze of self-doubt and frustration.

But, you can also become a guide in your ​spiritual journey​.

So, let’s see how this is possible through advanced techniques that sit outside traditional teachings.

NOTE: These techniques are meant to complement, not replace, your regular Reiki self-treatment or medical advice. Reiki is not an alternative to allopathic medicine. Use it to support and stimulate your body’s natural healing ability as well as elevate your spiritual awareness.

With that said, let’s dive in.

3 Methods To Improve Your Physical and Emotional Health While Growing Your Awareness

#1 Breaking Negative Programs, Projections, and Self-imposed Barriers

Most of the time, the barriers we face, referred to as “programs” or “projections,” result from self-sabotage.

Outside influences can also be a trigger.

But, at the end of the day, you choose what and who to listen to. This is great news because if you have the ability to create these barriers, it means that you can also dismantle them.

Here’s how to address them with Reiki:

  • Activate your palms with Cho Ku Rei + Sei He Ki + Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen;
  • Add Dai Ko Myo if you have the Usui Reiki level 3 attunement;
  • Add other symbols if you are attuned in other Reiki systems;
  • Visualize the negative program or projection as a dark grey cloud of energy;
  • Activate the same sequence of symbols in the middle of this cloud;
  • This will help break the negative energy into smaller, more manageable pieces;
  • Next, use your activated palms to send energy to these fragments for about 5-10 minutes to aid in completely dissolving what’s left of that negative energy;

This method is designed to help you actively dismantle the negative energies you created, making it easier to overcome them.

#2 Leveraging The Universal Life Force Energy For Daily Guidance

This technique focuses on boosting the flow of universal energy daily to aid in cleansing, support your everyday tasks, and foster a strong connection with your higher self.

It takes about 5 minutes, so here’s how to do it:

  • Begin your day with your hands in Gassho (prayer position);
  • Reflect on everything you’re grateful for in your life;
  • Activate all the Reiki symbols you’re attuned to on your palms and crown chakra;
  • Raise your arms above your head, close your eyes, and take a few deep breaths;
  • Visualize a rich flow of universal life force energy streaming down through your body from the top of your head, filling and cleansing your whole being down to your feet, grounding you in the process;

The key to making this practice impactful is to remain aware of this energy flow throughout your day. This awareness can provide guidance, support, and a sense of groundness in your daily life.

#3 Reclaiming Your Energy

Daily duties and stress can significantly deplete your energy. While sleep is a crucial factor in recovering part of this vital energy, there are times when you still wake up tired.

A helpful technique for this situation is to reclaim your vital energy and energetic imprints you’ve dispersed throughout the day:

  • Take five minutes for yourself right after you get home;
  • Close your eyes and visualize or activate Cho Ku Rei + Sei He Ki + Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen in front of you;
  • Declare your intention to bring back your vital energy or energetic imprints that were scattered throughout the day;
  • Visualize these parts gradually coming together, reintegrating within the structure of your energetic and physical layers;
  • Visualize the same sequence of symbols above your crown chakra to enhance the flow of universal energy through your body. This will boost the cleansing and revitalizing effect, reclaiming the lost energy much quicker;

Next Steps

These are 3 of the numerous possibilities Reiki offers. Feel free to experiment with them, and even add your own touch to the mix.

I find them to be very efficient in helping restore and maintain my mental, emotional, and energetic health. There’s a chance they will even develop your awareness, giving you more clarity upon the emotional imbalances or situations you encounter.

Embracing a spirit of boldness and adventure in your spiritual journey, especially within Reiki, can open you up to new perspectives.

It allows you to explore innovative methods for cleansing and spiritual growth, broadening your understanding of how to nurture and expand your spiritual path.
