When we learn to give ourselves Reiki by taking a class and receiving reiju (an attunement) we give ourselves many gifts. One of which is the ability to slow down and rest for a moment. As we place our hands upon our physical body we have the ability to gently tune in to what is going on inside us; perhaps mentally, physically, emotionally, or a combination. Taking a couple of centering breaths while the Reiki warms and begins to flow feels good.
We are giving ourselves permission to pause during our busy lives to really listen to our inner selves. The beauty of treating ourselves with Reiki is we don’t have to do it for long periods of time. Just a few minutes is good enough. Of course, more hands on for longer is always better but it doesn’t mean we are missing out.
I find that I subconsciously place my hand on my chest when I’m in meetings or on the couch at home in the evenings or when I’m centering in meditation. This is a comforting spot for me to feel the Reiki flowing. It relaxes me, makes me feel healthy and strong, and helps ease tension. If you are Reiki attuned, you may find that you have your own favorite spot to place your hands. Please share in the comments below…
Regular self Reiki practice is a tool to help center and ground ourselves.
