Take a Reiki Shower, start (or end) the day clean, physically and energetically

I don’t remember when I first read about or learned about taking a Reiki shower but it’s something that I now have incorporated into my Reiki life and do every morning.

And what a wonderful way to start the day.

I am a morning showerer, but many of you might be evening showerers. What a great way to end the day.

Or maybe you prefer a bath….. no problem, got ya covered.

While we are cleaning away the dust and dirt from the last 24 hours we can also wash away the energetic dust and dirt we accumulated, the worry, the stress, the anger and even other people’s energy that has attached to us.

Showering for me is like my morning prayers and it’s that few quiet moments when I think of all the things I am grateful for.

Here is how to create a Reiki Shower and Sacred space

Turn on the water and give a few minutes of Reiki to the shower head (if you are running a bath, send Reiki to the spout). I draw the symbols I am attuned to, however if you are Level 1 just let Reiki flow. The intention set here is that the water flowing from the shower head or spout now be filled with Reiki Energy. Envision white light filling the bathroom and it now becomes a sacred and healing space.

When you step into the shower stream (or the bath water) that is now full of Reiki energy, naked and fully exposed (nothing is hidden from creator) begin your prayers for the day.

Everyone prays differently so I am not going to go into much detail but it is during that time that I thank Creator for all that I have been blessed with, I thank my angels for their help the day before. I ask that all negative energy that no longer serves my highest purpose be washed down the drain where Mother Earth (Gaia) will cleanse and neutralize it. I also ask that all my energy, that I may have left behind, be returned to me.

I also set my intentions for the day and asked that Reiki be with me for the next 24 hours.

There is something very magical, uplifting, empowering and joyful about standing fully exposed in front of the creator while “yesterday” is being washed away. Everyday you start out spiritually and energetically cleansed.

Have a beautiful day.

Reiki Drumming-A healing tool

Reiki Drumming-A healing tool

For  several years I had been hearing about Reiki Drumming but I never had a chance to experience it until I attended the 2017 International Reiki Retreat in Sedona AZ. It was on our last day of the retreat that Michael and Authur Baird, the originators of this technique, introduced us to the drum and Reiki Drumming. I was blown away Imagine a room full of people, I would guess around 80, in a room filled with Reiki Energy all beating on a drum. You would think it would have been overwhelming, noisy and chaotic but it wasn’t. It was vibrational, centering and balancing. During our workshop session we split into pairs and we gave each other a 10 minute Reiki Drum session. One person drummed and the other received. It was quite magical. Magical enough so that both Kate Cook, from Kate’s Reiki Essence, and I had to return to Sedona a day after the retreat ended to buy drums for our own use and Reiki practice. Since bringing it home I have had several opportunities to use the drum during a Reiki Session with great results.

What is Reiki Drumming.

Reiki Drum

This is my drum. It is plain but it has a beautiful tone and vibration!

Drumming has been used since the beginning of time by Shamans, Medicine Men, Holy people and Healers. Sound is a vibration that carries itself deep into your body. For Reiki Drumming, the Drum is infused with Reiki Energy prior to the session. The Reiki energy is focused and directed with every beat of the drum. The drum’s sound waves carry the high frequency Reiki Energy into the client’s energy field. I am in the process of exploring this new technique but what I have experienced so far is that Reiki drumming is:
  • Like having a Reiki Massage on all your internal organs sending vibration deep within the recipient
  • Because of the repetive beats it helps the client become more internally focused and balanced.
  • Drumming can bring your brainwaves into an alpha state usually associated with mindfulness or meditation, which in turn can help reduce a depressive state of mind and increase creativity.
  • Drumming can help break up energetic blocks that may be stopping you from moving forward
 

Reiki Drumming during a Healing Session

Reiki Drumming is something that I will be incorporating into every one of my sessions, unless the client chooses not to. Since I have discovered this is a wonderful way to relax my client, and focus her on her healing path, each Reiki session will begin with 5-10 minutes of drumming and then I will proceed with a regular Reiki session..

The drum is beaten in a quick rhythm and the sound is focused all around the body, from head to toe. It can be done standing, sitting or during a Reiki Session laying comfortably on the Reiki table. By concentrating on the beat of the drum, it will help center and balance you, bringing you into a deeper state of relaxation which will all you to more openly accept the healing energy.
While receiving Reiki I suggest you focus on the issue you are trying to resolve, whether it is emotional or physical. A huge part of healing is being ready to release whatever it is that is causing your issue. Sometime we may not know what the root cause is but Reiki can and will bring it to your attention, either during the session or in the days that follow. But you must be ready to release it for healing to occur.

Reiki sessions are available in 30 minute or 60 minute increments. Additionally, once a month I hold Healing Nights which enable you to experience Reiki is a non hands-on, but not less effective way, in which I also start with Reiki Drumming. I think the Reiki Drum and the few minutes each participants receive this vibratory technique is probably the favorite of the evening.

If you have attended a healing night and participated in the drum, I would love to hear your thoughts on it.

Start your path of healing today,

Buffalo Drum - Remo 16"

Reiki Drum - Remo This is the drum I used. It may not be the prettiest, the coolest looking. It doesn’t have a fancy leather skin or a cool native American painting on it, but oh what a sound. I got to pick out mine in person and had all those wonderful choices. I really wanted a painted head but once I heard the deep vibration of this drum I knew it was the one I wanted.

Crystal Grid for Reiki Healing

Crystal Grid for Reiki Healing

One of my favorite uses for my crystals is in a crystal grid. These lovely to look at displays are more than just eye candy. They are powerful manifesters, using multiple gems and crystals for one purpose.

Crystal Grid on Flower of Life

Crystal Grid For those in need of Reiki

Just to show you how powerful these crystal grids can be, I created the crystal layout above on. FLOWER OF LIFE embroidered cloth I have available in my store. The Flower of Life is Sacred Geometry, powerful in itself, but more powerful with lovely healing crystals.

The intention for a grid is the first thing you need to decide on. For this Grid my intention was Reiki. I live in a small town, in the middle of the Bible Belt Oklahoma and Reiki, or any alternative healing modality is unheard of. This makes it difficult for me, a Reiki Practitioner, to get the word out.

I had an upcoming series of Reiki Classes and plenty of appointment times open for Reiki Sessions. The intention I set for the grid was to make me visible to anyone needing Reiki or wanting to learn Reiki.

Within a day of setting up the grid, a gal walks into the shop, in tears and in need of a hug. I had met her once before but briefly. She told me that she didn’t know why she stopped in but felt she needed to. We talked, I listened, I gave her Reiki and a hug. She felt the call of the grid.

And my Reiki classes were very well attended.

Crystal Grids work and they work well.

For more ideas on Crystal Grids and Crystal Layouts, I have a Pinterest Board where I am pinning those that I find valuable as well as beautiful, I love seeing what others do.

Crystal Chakra Generator

Crystal Chakra Generator

Many years ago, while I was a new Reiki Practitioner (Level 1 if I recall correctly) I sat in and worked with a Reiki Master during a client Session. She had the most beautiful crystal piece I had ever seen and would place it on the clients’ body as she was intuitively guided. I did not know what it was but I knew I wanted one. I later learned it was called a Crystal Chakra Generator.

One day, while shopping around online, I came across one and just had to have it.  It was then that a[amazon_textlink asin=’B00LTHGZTS’ text=’ Chakra Generator ‘ template=’ProductLink’ store=’esslivrei-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’059748a1-0e37-11e7-8185-f10a2e6c897d’]entered my life.

At first, I really did not know what to do with it and there is very little information out there on them so I thought I would share what and how I use it.

My Crystal Chakra Generator has 7 gemstone crystal points, representing the seven chakras, all pointing outward. In the center, representing the 8th Chakra, the “seat of the soul”., is a  conical pyramid shaped clear crystal. 

There are several different configurations you can get that focus on one chakra or all clear quartz. I personally wanted one that would fill all my needs so I chose the one with the points that represent all seven chakras.

My favorite way of using my Crystal Chakra Generator is the center of a crystal grid as shown in the picture of my grid below.  The energy from the surrounding crystals with my intentions flow into the Chakra points and then out into the universe. To me, it just feels so all inclusive, that no matter what the intent of my grid it, I have it covered with the generator as the center.
Crystal Chakra Generator

For healing, these lovely chakra generators can be placed directly over a blocked chakra to aid in unblocking, balancing and healing. If you are unsure of what chakra needs assistance you can place over the Solar Plexus Chakra which is located an inch or so above your belly button.

You can use it right side up or upside down, depending on your need and intuition. I will place the generator right side up if I am sending Reiki into a specific area. It intensifies and pinpoints the energy.   If I am wanting to dispel a blockage or release/remove negativity I will turn the generator upside down, with the center point facing down. Some practitioners do it just the opposite. For me, right now, that is what feels correct.  Remember, it’s all about intention!

As a Reiki Practitioner, I can use it to send long distance healing to those requesting it. I send Reiki to the center quartz, using the symbols I am attuned to, including the long distance symbol with the intention that the energy flow through the crystal and out the points to whoever needs it. If you are not yet attuned to the symbols or even Reiki you can still set the intention to the universe.

They are also a wonderful aid to use while meditating.

When not in use, leave them out, not only for their beauty but because they will help keep your space energetically cleansed.
