It happened so fast. Like a bullet but without the BANG. Jane woke up one day, realizing that her good old habit had faded. Strange, because it feels like it never left her routine. She just told a florist how great it is. The slow but steady flow of “reasons” removed Reiki without a sound.
With our busy lives, it’s hard to find time for anything, really. Or is that just an excuse to choose instant gratification over things that take longer to see results?
I’m not pointing fingers because it doesn’t help anyone.
I’m only stating facts. It’s common. More than this, I want to highlight how easy it is to let such a detail pass through. What’s important is to be aware of this reality and choose accordingly.
Practicing Reiki will always help you at a physical, emotional, and spiritual level. Even a single session a week is better than none. It can align your chakras, cleanse your energetic fields, and grow your awareness. At the very least, it’s a moment with yourself, something very scarce these days.
Of course, it’s best to practice Reiki as often as possible. I would go as far as encouraging daily self-treatment sessions. Unfortunately, it’s hard to keep this rhythm in this fast-paced world.
This doesn’t mean we have to give up.
See the glass half full. Having a busy schedule will make you savor moments of peace.
I’m no different, and over the years, I discovered “tweaks” that can help enhance the practice. Whether it’s about time or something else, there’s always room for improvement, even with Reiki.
Enhance Your Practice With These 3 Methods
#1 – Focus on the essentials
If time is an issue, focus on the most important elements.
You connect to the universal life force energy through the crown chakra, Sahasrara. This is the coordinator of all chakras and the main conductor of the universal energy through the body. If this energy center works well, it can then influence the other chakras.
The second priority would be Ajna and Vishuddha, the other superior chakras. They are all interconnected. Energizing one will have positive effects on its “neighbors”.
#2 – Combing technique
During self-treatment, you dissolve most of the negative energies. But, it’s possible to leave some behind. Combing is an additional method that’s very useful at the end of the session.
Use your dominant hand with the fingers slightly apart, like a comb. As you would caress someone, collect all residual energies into your non-dominant hand. When you feel it heavy, throw them to the ground.
Repeat 3 times or as you see fit.
You’ll be amazed at how many blockages you will be able to cleanse. At first, I thought it was something better suited for someone who doesn’t practice Reiki regularly. With time, I grew fond of it, and it’s now an indispensable tool.
#3 – Use crystals
One of the best ways to enhance the flow of the universal life force energy is to have crystals next to you.
They have been used for thousands of years for channeling different types of energies. Crystals are perfect physical conductors for the universal energy and can amplify it many times over.
The larger the crystal, the more enhanced the flow of energy becomes.
Quartz, amethyst, citrine, rose quartz, and tiger’s eye are very good to start with. To absorb negative energies, consider obsidian, smoky quartz, and black onyx. Remember to cleanse your crystals before and after each use.
