Reiki and Meditation

Meditation is a traditional Reiki technique. Many holistic healers and physicians incorporate meditation into their daily routines. Whether or not they are

Meditation is used on a daily basis by yoga teachers, massage therapists, Reiki practitioners, and others who are dedicated to whole body, mind, and spirit health.

Meditation can be divided into two types. The first step is to rid your mind of any and all emotions. Focusing on a single question, problem, or circumstance is the second form of meditation.

The concentration in Reiki therapy is on Reiki energies rather than something else. During a Reiki trance, you concentrate on the universal energy that exists inside, through, and everywhere around you. To build a sense of tranquilly, attachment, and harmony, you want to feel close to the energy.

Your body will feel revitalized and brimming with vitality. It's a very energizing kind of meditation.

It is advised that you meditate in a peaceful environment where you will not be interrupted. You'll want to create a soothing environment. Set the mood by dimming the lamps, lighting candles, and perhaps burning incense or diffusing herbal oils. Play a calming soundtrack if music makes you relax.

For meditation, you may sit or lay down, but if you are susceptible to falling asleep, sitting up might be the better option. Although falling asleep during meditation isn't really a bad thing, the intention is to maintain a certain level of concentration and interaction with the Reiki force, which will be compromised if you do so.

Breathe in through your nose to the count of four, then out through your mouth to the count of eight to begin calming your mind.

You'll want to start concentrating on Reiki energies after a couple of these deep breaths. Begin by connecting to the energies inside yourself, and as you do, feel it extend outward into the world, as well as the space and objects surrounding you.

You should be able to sense the force flowing about and around you.

Keep your attention on the force for as long as you want or feel compelled to. If you choose to meditate for a certain period of time, use a timer or a soothing call back tone, such as a quiet bell or gong, to remind you when it's time to stop.

Meditation takes time to master. If you're new to meditation or unfamiliar with it, you can need to work your way up to longer meditation periods.

It's common to start with just five minutes.

It's easy to be overwhelmed by thoughts and noises in the room around you at first, such as the heat turning on, the sound of a branch on the glass, or your day's thoughts. These distractions will go away with time and practice.

There are, however, certain methods that can help you maintain that meditative state. When you first begin to meditate, place the tip of your tongue on the roof of your mouth. Your tongue will slip from the roof of your mouth if your mind wanders. Bring your tongue back to the roof of your mouth and refocus on your meditation whenever you feel this.

The tongue trick is analogous to the Gassho finger tactic, in which you press your middle fingers together whenever you start to have distracting thoughts. When you begin a meditation with the Gassho technique, your mind will be more focused when you move on to a Reiki meditation.

A regular 21-day Reiki meditation program will help you learn more about Reiki while also improving your meditation skills.

It is divided into parts to span the entire 21-day span. These 21 days also reflect the period Dr. Usui spent studying on top of a mountain in order to achieve enlightenment.
