5 ways to experience Reiki throughout the day

Once you have been attuned to Reiki, there are simply hundreds of ways you can experience Reiki permanently in your life. Here are my 5 favourite ways to be connected to Reiki energy all day long.

  1. ?????Self treatment

    I LOVE self treating, and unless I have a very unusually early start I will do a minimum of 20 minutes each morning, more likely 1hr. I can’t imagine starting my day without it now. I set my alarm to wake up 1hr before I need to get up to fit it in, and do it in bed before I get up. It’s part of my daily self care practice, not just to set me up for the day, but to clear historic stress. Positive change happens as a result of consistent positive behaviour, so my self treatment practice is for me, part of my personal development programme.

  2. Reiki your food

    IMG_20180707_102352Before you eat anything, you can positively charge up your food with Reiki. Breakfast for me is a smoothie, so I spend a few seconds putting Reiki into that smoothie as I am making it. It’s a small gesture, but each small thing we do to support ourselves adds up. We can also charge up out water bottles or there are water carafes you can buy with words like “Peace” and “Harmony”.

  3. Live by the 5 Reiki Precepts

    Just for today, do not be angry

    Just for today, do not worry

    Just for today, be grateful

    Just for today, work hard

    Just for today, be kind to all living things.

    Every student is trained in the 5 Reiki Precepts and is invited to live by them. Mikao Usui, the founder of modern Reiki Healing, believed that in order for anyone to practice Reiki and transfer healing energy to others, they must have first taken responsibility for their own health and wellbeing. He also realised the importance of a person’s participation in the healing process. The five Reiki Precepts give students a framework to come back to time and time again, when perhaps the ego would like to indulge in complaining, frustration and worrying.

  4. Have a daily meditation practiceBecci Meditating

    On top of self treatments, I take time each day to close my eyes and focus inwards. Meditation is different to self treatments, it is an opportunity to let go of the chatter of the mind and as a result see life with greater clarity. I aim to do at least 10 minutes a day, but if I am busy of my life is stressful, I will do considerably more. My favourite thing to do is to focus on being aware of the Reiki space – the infinite space in which we exist and where source energy comes from.

  5. Crystals

    DSC_0016I love working with crystals and have collected many over the years! I will either work with them when doing a self treatment, wear them or charge up my crystal healing grid on a daily basis. I find that crystals help me focus my healing energies and have many stories of how they have had a positive impact on my life. My favourites at the moment are Rose Quartz, Amethyst, Quartz and Rhodonite – though I will pick what I feel like I need on a daily basis depending on what is going on with my life at the time.

Here are just 5 daily commitments I make to my Reiki practice, ones that have become deeply integrated into my practice.

Which daily habits do you have? And how do they serve you? Feel free to leave your comments in the box below!

The Reiki 21 Day Challenge

Once trained in Reiki and our initial 21 days clearing is over, it is easy to get caught up in the busyness of living and forget to prioritise our practice.

This event is designed to remind you of the simplicity and joy of practising Reiki, and perhaps teach you a few things along the way.

This event takes place on Facebook. You can register your interest here. Once there, simply click on the “Interested” button to receive the updates in your notifications, and to sign up to receive the content each day.

Enjoy!

Reiki 21 Day Challenge

Earlier this year, I ran a Reiki 21 Day Challenge, to inspire people to commit to a daily practice to have a positive impact on their life.

The feedback from the event was overwhelmingly positive, with many requests to repeat the exercise – so here it is – another Reiki 21 Day Challenge!!

Why?

712964ff-3702-4086-b102-3756f6659c03Reiki is a hands on healing technique that channels unlimited amounts of universal life force energy. This intelligent and positive energy helps to re-balance us when we have become run down by stress and stuck due to trauma. It is gentle, non-invasive and aside from investing in getting taught how to do Reiki and receive the attunements – Reiki is FREE!!

I will be posting videos, articles, my favourite pieces of music and ways we can apply Reiki to benefit ourselves, our lives and others.

I very much would love you to join others from all over the world to enjoy the benefits of this calm and relaxing technique.

The emotional benefits of Reiki

What could you do with freely experiencing so you can move on and let it go?
image

In my experience, many do not fully appreciate the emotional cleansing capacity of a good Reiki therapist. Reiki is a powerful and effective way of processing emotions and letting go of past and difficult experiences. Coupled with good talking therapy skills, a Reiki therapist can make a dramatic difference to a person’s life by allowing them to confront what would be difficult to confront alone.

Emotions are energy in motion, designed to flow through the body and provide a particular response to an experience to increase our chances of staying alive. The reason that people still carry these emotions from these difficult experiences is because they weren’t fully acknowledged and processed at the time – resulting as the energy of them being carried in the body as unfinished business. These stuck emotions are often the very basic emotions of hurt, anger, fear and sadness that are linked to our survival.

Stuck emotions show up in many ways; gut issues, hearing loss, back pain, insomnia, fear of moving forwards, self sabotage at work, paranoia, slow healing rates and eating disorders to name just a few.

In order to process these difficult and survival-linked emotions so we can let our nervous system return to resting/normal we need as much support as we are experiencing stress.

I personally find a well trained, balanced and secure Reiki healer wonderfully supportive, as they allow me to open up and explore the challenges that make me vulnerable. In doing so I am able to let those vulnerabilities go and I become more secure, present and grounded in the process. In doing that, I become more alert and aware, better able to defend myself and more able to deal with my day to day stress.

If this sounds like something you would like to know more about and to see if Reiki would be right for you then I’d be very happy to chat to you about it. You can contact me on 01892 853518 or visit my website at http://www.ReikiMarkCross.co.uk to find out more.

Reiki for first timers

Such a delight to share what Reiki is to a first timer today.

How do you describe Reiki to someone that has never had it or anything like it before, but trusts you and is desperate for some help with their pain?

image

The answer is, you don’t. You explain enough to let them know what’s expected of them and what they might experience and then you let yourself be guided by intuition and the healing do it’s thing.

As Reiki practitioners you don’t have to have all the answers, you just have to listen and be in the moment.

Our bodies are talking to us all the time, telling us where we’re going against our wishes, when our burdens have got too much to bear alone, when we’re frightened to move forwards and when we’re more upset than we really let on.

When we listen to our bodies we get insights into where to go next, what we love, what sustains us and what resources to invest in.

I’m not special
It takes no special skill to do this, I am not ‘gifted’ in any way, I simply liked the idea of being able to do this, so I trained up so I could. It really is that simple.

I sent today’s client home with a leaflet so she can read up on what she has just experienced. If it is right she’ll come back and have more, and if it isn’t, she won’t.

Despite what some people say, there is no set way anyone has to deal with their challenges and I’ve never seen it written anywhere we have to deal with our challenges at all – because, and this is the most important point to remember at all – we are already perfect, just as we are.
