3 Steps to Attune an Object with Reiki by Pat Gray

 Reiki is the ancient Japanese practice of balancing energy, and can also be used to “charge” or “empower” objects with healing, protective, positive energy. These objects can then be given as gifts to someone who needs a bit of a boost, used to increase the effectiveness of a healing session or placed around the home for protection or to improve situations. Any object can be charged – your car, a crystal or stone, your home, jewelry, a piece of paper with an affirmation.

The Healing Power of Living the Reiki Principles

Master Usui titled the Reiki Principles, The Secret Art of Inviting Happiness/The Miraculous Medicine of All Diseases.  That double title is very fitting.  The Principles are a guide to living that can brings us peace and contentment.  When we attain the inner peace that comes with living life by the Principles, much of the inner turmoil that is at the core of our physical dis-ease will dissipate.  Whereas hands on Reiki helps to treat dis-ease once it has set in, I have come to think of the Reiki Principles as preventative care.  They help us to live in such a way that we can stay in alignment with a healthy and happy life, minimizing our chances of becoming ill in the first place.

Making the Connection for Distance Reiki

Distance Reiki is really not an accurate term.  I believe it would be more accurate to call it Connection Reiki.  When a practitioner “sends distance Reiki” what they are actually doing is tapping into their connection with a person or situation despite the physical distance and/or linear time.

Reiki Healing and Training for Children

If you have children, I encourage you to introduce them to Reiki while they are young and if they have an interest, help them to train to be practitioners themselves.  Children are so open to new things and the magic of Reiki fits well into their lives.  Their open minds and imaginations give them an advantage over adults who have learned to be skeptical and doubt what they cannot see.

Reiki Circle Opening Meditation

After looking around for a good meditation to use, I decided to write it myself this month.   To prepare, I took some time to center myself and activate Reiki with gratitude and intention.  I used the power symbol to help charge my energy, the mental/emotional symbol to get into my creative zone, and the distance/connection symbol to connect with divine guidance for inspiration.  I wanted to share the results with you.

Reiki Healing for Domestic Abuse

I had a discussion with a woman who told me that the abuse wasn’t that big a deal.  It was normal.  All men hit eventually.  Either that or it must be her.  It always happens to her.  It must be something about her that causes it.  Her fault.  It broke my heart to hear.

Reiki Explained: What It is and What It is Not

Reiki has become a fairly common practice in many parts of the Western World.  There are still places, however, where it is largely unknown.  In the Midwestern United States, many people have never even heard of Reiki, let alone have any idea what it is.  As a Reiki practitioner in Missouri, I often have to explain to people exactly what it is I do and answer the question; what is Reiki?

What is the Deal with Reiki Attunements?

There seems to be a lot of confusion when it comes to Usui Reiki attunements.  Do I really need an attunement to practice Usui Reiki?  Do I need to be attuned to Animal Reiki to treat animals?  There are so many types of Reiki, do I need to be attuned to them all?  Do distance attunements work?  Can I download my attunement automatically by reading a book about Reiki or by watching an attunement video on YouTube?  These are a few questions about attunements that I hear regularly.

The 7 Major Chakras

Becoming familiar with your energy body can give you a clearer understanding of the steps you need to take to keep yourself well balanced and healthy. Today, I’d like to talk about Chakras.

Finding Fibromyalgia Relief with Reiki

5 Steps to Create, Use, and Maintain a Reiki Box

A Reiki Box is just as it sounds, a box that you give Reiki to.  You can place the names of people or list situations that you would like to send Reiki to inside the box to send them all energy at once.  This is an effective way to quickly and easily send Reiki to multiple people or situation at time, however I don’t believe that it works in the same way or with quite the same results as a personal, individualized session.
