Congratulations new Reiki practitioners! Congratulations for your commitment to self-development and taking charge of your healing. I’ve attached an article from my Reiki Master Frans Stiene that talks about the 3P’s of the Reiki practice: Practice, Patience, and Perseverance. I also wanted to remind of some points that might be helpful to new practitioners (and to old ones too). :-)
Reiki is simple: After the class, sometimes new practitioners don’t know how to start their Reiki practice. All you need to do is to place your hands on yourself and make an intention to start Reiki (or turn the switch on). You can say “I open my hands and my heart to Reiki”, or any other affirmations that will bring out that intention, or simply think about Reiki. It’s that simple! Intention is the key to start Reiki.
How long should I practice?: I’d strongly encourage you to do the 21 days full body treatment (~45 min) but please don’t let this discourage your practice. 15 minutes of Reiki is better than none. Also, you can do Reiki anytime during the day, whenever you have time. Consistent practice is important to build your confidence. Remember that Reiki will always stay with you.
Precepts: The best way to bring Reiki into your daily life is to practice precepts daily: “Just for Today, don’t be angry, don’t worry, be grateful, work hard and be kind to all living beings”. Repeat these precepts twice daily, write them down and put them in your living room, kitchen, computer screen, places that you can see them daily. More importantly, make an intention to practice themJ. There are articles on this blog on the precepts; read them when you have a chance :-)
Meditate: Spend some quiet time alone every day. Simply watch your breath, or watch nature, or practice any other meditations you like. I’d recommend doing Joshin Kokyu-Ho (breathing into abdomen and exhaling/expanding out from each and every cell of your body).
Keep a Journal: Keep a Healing journal. Write down your experiences, your emotions, your dreams (as if they’ve already come true). Writing is very healing.
Don’t cling to the outcome: Have your goals, actions, and dreams be well defined but always trust Reiki to bring about the highest good of all concerned. Don’t forget you’re only an instrument and all you can do is to bring the Light in. It knows how to work.
Remember: PRACTICE, PATIENCE, PERSEVERANCE. May we all be healed at all levels!
Reiki at Victory of Light Festival-
It was another awesome gathering where we’ve provided Reiki to VOL participants. Heartfelt thanks to all Reiki Masters and practitioners who came to share their Lights and especially to Patricia, Arleen and Gwynne for leading the event. Come back next time :-)
Healing Wednesday will be on Wednesday December 15th from 10 am till 2 pm
“Healing Wednesdays” is to reach out to communities that can’t afford Reiki. We provide Reiki to those who come to get free food at Manna OutReach. During winter months, our practice will be on appointment basis. Elfriede is getting the word out and getting appointments. Please contact Elfriede directly at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to help.
