Meditation is an integral part of Reiki and was practiced by Dr Usui’s students each time they attended a Reiki class. These meditations deepen and strengthen your connection to the energy, promote sensitivity to Reiki, and the ability to channel ever-increasing amounts of Reiki.
Begin in a comfortable standing or sitting position.
Close or half close the eyes. Breathe slowly, through you nose. Let go of any tension.
Place your hands in prayer position in front of your heart (also called Gassho), and calm the mind.
Hold your hands up as high as possible, and feel the vibrations of light (Reiki) showering into the whole of the body.
Now invoke reiki
I thank myself for being here
I thank reiki for being here
I thank your name for being here
Now feel the energy in your palms as well as in your Heart Centre as hands are extensions of the heart
Now visualise a light whitish light and violet in it’s periphery like a sun glowing at Your Heart Centre
Now feel the love in your heart or to help yourself remember a person you love the most who is alive and feel the love for the person in your heart
Now merge the love and light call this light as light of love
While you are breathing in,with each inhalation and exhalation observe the light of love in the heart brightening and becoming bigger .
Visualize that light of love (Reiki) is filling your head, and down the center (Hara) line through the body and into the Tanden. Now visualise that your body is filled with light, the light spreads to all parts of your body, your every cell is filled with light of love. Universal Energy(Reiki) is love and love is the only energy medicine that heals all problems of life.
As you breathe out, visualize that the light filling your body is spreading out in all directions,as you continue to breathe, feel it flowing into the room and then the residence you are in, filling it with Love energy. Feel it intensify as the Love energy flows outside onto the property and beyond into the neighborhood.
See it filling the region in which you reside and then beyond into the country, then the whole globe and finally out into the cosmos.
Stay in this position as long as is comfortable.
End the exercise with a Gassho: Place your hands in prayer position in front of your heart breathing in and out, letting your mind settle into a peaceful, meditative state
Stay in Gassho and recite the Five Reiki Principles:
Today, I replace anger with the understanding that I am responsible for my life’s experiences
and I take responsibility for raising my vibration.
Today, I replace worry with trust and faith in the power of the universe and its ways.
I am open to the lessons of the universe as it is for my own soul’s evolution.
Today, I will be thankful, for everything that is in my life, as a thankful heart is a happy heart.
A grateful heart is a magnet of miracles.
Today, I will work diligently, come what may, in my efforts to raise my vibration.
I understand that I create my vibrational reality.
Today, I will be compassionate to myself and to all beings. Feeling of oneness
of yourself with all that is in existence is true love.
Thank Yourself, Universe, Spiritual Masters, Healing Angels for successful healing meditation.
It is recommended to use the Gassho hand position before and after a Reiki Meditation practice.
