Reiki and Goals

2020 was a difficult year. The pandemic challenged all of us in so many different ways. From those who lost a family member, to those who suffered through an infection, and those who lost jobs we were all affected at a deeply personal level.

The New Year is a traditional time of making goals and plans. Promises and resolutions. Focusing our determination on what we want to manifest in the year, how the challenges we will face will be overcome and how we will commit our energy through all this to come. We may even raise resolutions about what we will not do, rather than what we will. 

Some of these plans and result ions will be deeply intellectual such as completing courses and training or highly personal such as giving more love and attention to aging parents or a child who has a disability to challenge.

If you choose to write these things down, so they are clear in your mind and intention. The first thing you need to do is ask the Archangel Michael to stand guard over you as you create your list free from worry about influence from dark or lower energies. With the Archangel standing guard over you, engage with Reiki guides and Reiki energy to give energy to what you write.

When I saw write, you can of course, type at a laptop, smart phone, or tablet and store what you have written as a file. If you choose to record your goals electronically, I strongly recommend you print them out. You can pin the page up somewhere where you can see it every day. I have seen people write sticky notes for things on such a list and put them on the back of the door they use to leave their house. This way they have to read it before they go out into the world.

Read your notes over and correct, add or delete anything that is not relevant. Do not be tempted to rewrite your notes. We are not seeking perfection. We are seeking authenticity. What you think, want, and desire should be recorded naturally as they occurr to you. 

Roll or fold your note sup and put them away where they are not out of mind but you can find them easily.

While you are still under protection of the Archangel, think about what you have just written and the way it will affect your energy in the coming year. If your hopes and dreams are diverse and you will be asking yourself to do a lot with many different things, recognize that this can lead to exhaustion and exhaustion means resentment about the variety and depth of tasks. Look for a path through your goals that reinforces a sense of direction and purpose.

Do not let a feeling or sense of chaos over take you. Even if it means slowing down for a moment, clearing your mind or even meditating for a few minutes, let Reiki energy fill you with the feeling that you can achieve what you wrote and find a way through the challenges ahead. Now is the time to be calm and peaceful before you start. Now is the time to align with your energy. Now is the time to bring Reiki energy into your feelings about your plans.

Thank the Archangel for standing guard over you. Now is the time to rest. Concentrate on Reiki and inviting its energy into each corner of your plans and hopes. Invite Reiki energy into yourself. Now is the time to ask for cleansing of your chakras, taking each one in turn from the root to the crown. Take it easy on yourself, if you do not feel you can cleanse all of your chakras, do the ones that speak to you.

Depending on what level of Reiki you are attuned to, with your finger, write the Reiki symbols on the palm of your other hand and direct the energy to the chakras that speak to you, those will be the ones that need the most attention.

If you can, take a nap or go to sleep for the evening. Do so. In the morning, or after your nap, there will be a sense of clarity about how what you plan for can be achieved.

Bring something of the hopes and plans into each day. At the end of your day, take a moment to think about what you have achieved that day that will bring your hopes, plans, and dreams into reality. Appreciate them and recognize what you can do tomorrow to help bring closer to being completed.

As you gather your thoughts about the day and what will happen tomorrow, include Reiki energy. Let it refuel you after today and prepare you for the next steps. Draw Reiki symbols over your hand and over anything you have written down to record your day and thoughts about the next.

Crystals can be a big help. I have several that speak to me, you may have the same or something different. Before I leave the house, I will select 2, 3, or even 4 and have them with me through the day in my pocket. During the day, when I think about my goals or I am doing something to further my goals, I will hold them and concentrate on them. 

Because each day has different spiritual and crystal needs, I do not use the same ones all the time. Whatever speaks to me is what take with me or hold.

One thing I find the crystals do for me is install a sense of flexibility and ability. I am flexible in terms of outcome of any event and I feel assured of my ability.

If events during the day did not turn out as you had planned think about them and what they taught you, what lessons you have learned and instill Reiki energy into the lessons and teachings. It may not appear so now, but something of value has taken place and being flexible enough to be grateful that you had the opportunity to do the best you could.

Now is the time to channel Reiki energy into your rest and preparation for the next day.

Peace!

Reiki Symbols – Sehekey

The second symbol of Reiki – SEI HE KI. Its main values: “The key to the Absolute” or “Man and God come together ” . Vector illustration

Sehekey pronounced “Say He Key” is used for mental healing, accessing the subconscious and calming the mind. The translations mean “as above, so below” and represents Divine Source and human coming together. The use of this symbol is to address the emotional component behind physical diseases or energy blocks.

Using Sehekey for a Reiki Session

This symbol is a direct line to the other person’s subconscious or to your own and with this comes responsibility to be “clear” when using it.  If your mind is not clear, take some time before the session to ground yourself and reach a place of tranquility and peace to clear your thoughts.  You can also use your breath to reach this “clear state” by breathing deeply and on the inhalation repeating to yourself: “breathing in I claim my body” and on the exhalation repeating, “breathing out I still my mind”. If you are not able to clear your mind. DO NOT use the Mental Healing symbol on someone else as you will only confuse his or her mind with your own mind’s chatter. This symbol is intended to calm the conscious mind and allow the subconscious memories of pain or trauma to come to the surface and be released. 

If you do not feel motivated to use this symbol during a Reiki session assume that it is not needed.

  • use to protect and purify self and others from mental control by drawing symbol over self or putting self-inside symbol
  • to protect your car, put it inside a Mental / Emotional Symbol, then seal with a Power Symbol
  • it will help to release negative attachments
  • use to guard a room from negative emotions or entities
  • It helps to release mental or emotional conditions, addictions, pain emotional, nervousness, anger, fear, depression, sadness by bringing them to the surface and gently releasing them.

2021

2020 has been a difficult year. Even if you, personally, did not encounter difficulties, you know people who did and probably still are. Lockdowns and restrictions on activities have affected our ability to enjoy the sunlight of spring, summer and fall. The snow and brisk cold of winter that is enjoyable on winter walks or snow shoes or Skis, simply did not happen for many of us. 

Taking breaks into the countryside for a long weekend “to get away from it all,” and destress have not happened either.

Some of these restrictions have brought on feelings of frustration, anger and loneliness.

Now we have entered 2021, we all wonder what it will bring, we hope it will bring a sense of release and peace we have not felt for a long time. Above all, this New Year is loaded with expectations and hopes for a release of toxicity that surrounds us, we hope for positivity, happiness and a return to activities we enjoy.

I am not a fortune teller so I cannot promise any of this. No one can. But we can, with the help of Reiki, take time to bring into our souls the energy of the universe.

Take time to prepare the space where you will “Bring in 2021.” And, no it does not have to be done on New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day, the following can be performed at any time of the year. It may also be done many times during the year to reinforce release of the old and engagement with the new.

Smudge or clear your space. If it is your home, smudge and/or clear the entire house. Go behind every door, into every corner, into every cupboard, under every bed, into every closet and space where dark or lower energies may hide.

If you are unsure of what smudging or clearing your space means, we have a separate blog posting for that.

If you are attuned to Reiki, you can now sit and take a moment of peace and quiet to engage with the energy. Still your busy egoic mind. Above all, if you have any worries that the mind is repeating over and over, now is the time to stop it and stop those thoughts.

Ask Archangel Michael to be present. He is always available and limitless in energy. Ask him to use his word and shielded to protect the session you are creating form interference by dark or lower energies, or any energies that try to disrupt the session.

Ask the Archangel to cut and destroy any etheric cords of negativity attached to your spirit, soul, aura, heart, or physical being. I am a bit more emphatic and ask that he cut and destroy the cords. These cords I see as being like the arms of an octopus complete with its suckers. They take hold and will not release. The source of the cords I am also not interested in being reconnected to in any way, shape or form.

At the end of this part, ask the Archangel to surround you with his protective energy and fill you with is pure white light.

Once you are quiet and engaged with Reiki energy, reinforce the connection with Reiki Symbols. Which symbols are available to you will depend on the level to which you are attuned? 

Place your hands in Gassho. Gassho literally means “two hands coming together”. Dr. Usui taught a Gassho Meditation at the start of each of his Reiki meetings and is meant to be practiced daily by those who have learned 20-30 minutes each day either in the morning or before going to bed. 

When doing Gassho, sit with closed eyes and hands placed together in front of your chest. Focus your entire attention at the point where the two middle fingers meet. Try to forget everything else. If your mind wanders merely observe the thought and then let it go. Simply relax and maintain your focus on where your middle fingers meet. 

You may notice your backbone or your hands becoming warm however after noticing, return your attention to where your two middle fingers meet. If you must change your sitting position, then move in slow motion deliberately.  Maintain an upright posture and think that your head is attached to a helium balloon in order to accomplish this. You may sit also in a straight back chair or against a wall also.

Visualize the Reiki Power Symbol Hunshazishuneen pronounced “Hone sha say show nun”. This symbol carries the meaning of “The Divine Power in me greets the Divine Power in you to promote enlightenment and peace”. The direct translation is “The Buddha in me sees the Buddha in you”. This symbol transmits Reiki across distance, space and time and is used primarily for distance healing. 

If you wish, you may use a finger of one hand to draw the symbol on the palm of your other hand, or in the air in front of you.

Bring your mind back to 2020, events, people, emotions, and things that happened. Do not dwell on the events, people, places or feelings. The important things is to recognize the negative feelings and any baggage that you are carrying into this New Year.

Concentrate on release. Release the negativity. Release the baggage. If it helps, think of release like spring cleaning the home. It is a time of clearing away things that no longer serve you.

Concentrate on 2021. Now si the time to make sure there is no baggage and negativity that has made it into the New Year. Be bold and think. The New Year is such a bright and bold, mysterious place that not even Oracles can really tell you for certain what it will hold for you.

Let the energy flow into your hopes, plans, and thoughts for yourself, those close and dear to you and your wider family and friends. 

Sit still and allow Reiki energy to flow. Inhale it, and breath in the strength and energy of the universe and let it wrap around all that you feel is possible for 2021.

At the end of the session, draw Chokurey pronounced “Cho-koo-ray” is used to increase power.  The symbol means “current” and the symbol and its related words make a statement to the universe:  “Put the Power Here”.

The translation for Chokurey means “command to the universal life energy”.  The symbol draws energy around you and brings it to focus where you want it. The symbols should be made quite large with your palm over the recipient and then repeat silently the word ‘Chokurey’ three times. You can repeat the command while making the symbol or after you have completed it.  

Chokurey is a curving sword, which makes space by penetrating nothingness and filling it with spirit or power. It is the great accelerator which directs and focuses power wherever used, repeating the work Chokurey increases the power. 

Always draw the symbol once and say the name three times. The Power Symbol is the only symbol that can be used by itself and it is the activator of the other symbols. It opens up, brings in and seals the light. Draw it on the palms of both hands and the client before you start a treatment. When the treatment is complete draw it over the client to seal in the light. 

The left-hand spin activates the immune system and creates space, which allows the light/energy to enter, with it you can send light to a person, thing or situation.

Close out the session after a few minutes of meditation on positivity and release of negativity. Do not close off the flow of Reiki energy, but think about it being an essential part of your essence, which flows throughout the day and night of every moment of 2021.

Thank Archangel Michael for protecting and overseeing the session. 

Now si the time to drink some water and sit quietly doing something you enjoy, such as reading a book, listening to music or watching a movie. Avoid watching or reading anything “news” related until the next day. 

Have a special and wonderful New Year – 2021!
