Learn What Reiki Meditation Can Do For You
Reiki is a Japanese term meaning 'Universal Life Energy'. It is a philosophy that originated in Japan during the 19th century, based on using this energy to improve quality of life and unlock the gates of spiritual healing. This energy, as you will now read, is universally available.
The basis of reiki is that there is a universal, free-flowing energy in the universe, which wants us to be happy but, if ill-used or badly channeled, can also cause misery.
Almost all practitioners of reiki, whatever their status and attunement - master, intermediary or beginner student - have this as their goal: to use this energy to experience and create joy in their lives and in the lives of others.
However, perhaps because of a quirk of human nature, the uses of reiki for enjoying one's own happiness, and pursuing that happiness full force, are not often pondered upon by most people, leading to a major imbalance in the way reiki energy is used.
Therefore the initial and most vital step in using reiki to become and feel happy about yourself is to proclaim to yourself and to others that the end of your studies is the attainment of happiness.
A formula, or mantra if you please, that you could repeat to yourself during your reiki meditation is, "I desire that Divine 'ki', the energy that surrounds us, wash over and cover me completely, so that through it I may learn to feel and express my deep joy and serenity."
Try this formula - it works, and has been used effectively by many reiki practitioners around the world. Breathe this meditative mantra several times a day, and spend your day looking for opportunities to repeat it, silently if in public, and loudly and joyously if in private. This way you will add to the benefits you derive from your meditation practices.
The best way to do this is to put aside a certain amount of time, when you are unlikely to be disturbed, in a place where no one is likely to harass or annoy you, and spend that time repeating this mantra. In your mind, focus on the negative parts of your life, and let them be transfigured into relatively unimportant worries as you allow the healing energy to do its work.
Doing so at repeated intervals throughout the day will only strengthen this bond and deep connection between you and the universe's energy, and the more you do it, the better you will become at driving away unpleasantness, thereby maximizing the benefits you receive from your reiki meditation.
