Saviors Of Earth

The Unification Epicenter of True Lightworkers

Article by Reiki Master Sunetra Dasgupta

1. You don’t have to get tired while healing others or yourself, as you channel external energy

Since the very first level we have learned Reiki is a universal energy, and we are the channels. So what does it exactly mean? In lay man terms we become channel to the purest positive energy which surrounds us. Since it is an external energy, our energy does not get used up, hence after self healing or healing others, we do not feel tired or drained out but refreshed as a lot of healing happens in our body.

2. You do self healing every day, hence your chakras become balanced and open

As we do self healing, by giving Reiki to our minor and major chakras, starting from head to toe, with time, our chakras are neither blocked nor over active, they are open and balanced, hence keeping our life smooth be it physical, emotional or situational.

3. Karma is cleaned, hence better present and future

There are many ways to clean our karmas with Reiki, call upon the angels, or simple karma clearing, etc. When we erase our negative karmas, all the problems in the present and in the future get removed, as the karma related to the issues is nullified and hence our life is automatically better!

4. Your psychic abilities develop

We all have a few psychic abilities, which are dormant as we do not know of their existence. In Reiki as we become more aware of our own selves and others, we also become aware of the gifts we have and we can fine tune them. For ex: My teacher Ananya Sen was always a Clair cognizant but her ability improved by bounds when she came into the practice. My clairvoyance improved, and I am also now Clairsentient, a power which I developed after I came into this practice.

5. Negative people and toxic relations are out

Reiki always shields us from negative people and situation. It will always fizzle out relations who do not serve any purpose to us, also will remove all frenemies and people from our life who do not mean well or are not good for us. A friend of mine was in a toxic relation for a very long time, she learned Reiki to heal her relationship, but within 21 days the person left her, and she did not even feel bad about it, as she finally felt free!

Om Symbol

6. You are synced with the Universe and the signs it gives you

As a Reiki practitioner, we develop the wisdom to understand when a sign from the Universe is shown to us, it may be a name on a bill board, or someone says something out of the blue and you know the message is for you, or repetition of numbers in a certain sequence etc. They generally give us sign when we have asked a question, or warn us from some kind of danger, or just to let us know when we are about to cross an important thresh hold in our life.
In 2013-14, I was working for a statistical firm, where most of our clients were students, who wanted to get statistical analysis done for their project, but most of the students were from one particular college, and within a year I landed up working for the same college as a professor. I realized it was Universe way of telling me, where my next step was.

7. Aura gets healed, cords get removed

Aura is the bio magnetic energy field which surrounds our physical body. Our auras interact with each other, hence the quote “Love at first sight.” As it’s our auras first fall in love with each other, than us! As we interact with a lot of people every day, we may take in a lot of negativity from others or just in general our aura can get polluted, when our aura gets polluted, we tend to attract negative people and situations in life, a regular aura brushing with Reiki shall do wonders.

Cords again are not good for people; they tend to restrict us from moving ahead. Cord can be between people, karmic, spiritual etc. Regular cord removal helps us to forge better relationships, with people and move ahead in our life. We can remove cords with Reiki or calling upon Archangel Michael.

8. Most of the wishes manifest

Most of our wishes get manifested in Reiki, provided it is for our highest good. It helps us in all walks of life, be it improvement of health, getting a job, expanding business, or day to day life. You ask and give healing; Reiki will fulfill it for you.

9. You can work with lower and higher beings

The beautiful distance healing symbols help us to connect with people in the physical as well as the spiritual plane. We can give healing by connecting to a person who is in a different place, and can also connect to higher beings like Archangel Michael or any Ascended Master to guide you for healing, or you can also connect to lower beings like the souls who are not transited, to help them reach the light.

10. You can differentiate between being religious and spiritual

Reiki is not a religion; it is a way of life. It helps us to understand our needs and wants, and develop a compassion outlook towards the world and ourselves. Instead of giving its own point of view, Reiki helps us discover our own point of view. It just asks to have faith and trust on ourselves and our life become much meaningful and help us to understand the finer nuances which happen for our good.

11. You understand death is not an end, but a new beginning

“Nothing ever truly dies. The Universe wastes nothing. Everything is simply transformed.”
Death is not an end; it is a new beginning for us. We realize that our body is just temporary it is our soul which is the real existence. When we pass away, we simply leave this human form of body to maybe go into another one and learn new life lessons and become more mature as a soul, and for those who have already learned their life lessons help others as a spirit guide or a guardian angel and guide them to the right direction. The only mere changes are the change of responsibility.

12. All you need for healing is your intention

The best part about Reiki is, you do not need any rock salt or crystal to heal. Of course we can use them as addition, to boost our healing, but sometimes when we are travelling, we can just give healing through a chi ball or a touch or just plain send Reiki through our mind to the certain situation. Reiki cannot get handier than this!

Please feel free to add what are the other things that you think practicing Reiki is the coolest thing!

The word “Shanti” in Hindi means peace. It is a beautiful Karuna® symbol, for me personally it denotes why exactly people come to Reiki: To heal the past, release the future and create harmony in the present.

This symbol is very useful for manifesting the best possible results. It works beautifully for various purposes when combined with other Karuna® symbols. For ex: It helps us in clearing the room when combined with Rama, apart from that when combined with Kriya or Rama, it helps us to realize the goals that we had set for ourselves and manifest them which we may have forgotten in the daily hustle bustle.

Shanti symbol

Shanti helps us to release all our fears and insecurities; it may be drawn on the Third eye where a lot of fears are stored. In turn it can help people in getting rid of insomnia and restlessness including nightmares.

Shanti is a wonderful symbol to use when fear or panic attacks distress us. Even for chronic fatigue it is been known to help. When drawn on Solar plexus and Third eye, it induces a soothing calmness, helping us to let go of worries about things of the past or those things we imagine yet to happen.

It is an excellent symbol for those who are trying to develop their clairvoyance, meditating with the Shanti symbol on the Third eye will open and balance the chakra and in turn help in improving clairvoyance.

One of the few stories, which we have read in childhood, is of Midas touch. Whatever King Midas touched, turned into gold! Including his lovely daughter! At some point of our life, whenever we have faced acute cash crunch I am sure some of us have wished to have the Midas touch.

Midas Star is a prosperity symbol, which is taught in Seichem Reiki or Karuna Ki. Midas Star is commonly known as prosperity symbol, but prosperity just does not mean money, it also means to bring about success in inter personal relations, luck and harmony to us and people around us. It brings around changes in all walks of life wherever there are blocks and helps us achieving our goals.

Being attuned to the symbol does not mean that we can frivolously spend our money and with the help of this symbol there will be abundant cash flow.  The symbol signifies, that with steady flow of money, we can establish our power and help the society become a better place to live in. It is said if a red line is drawn under the symbol the power of the symbol increases, also the energy becomes much more grounded.

Midas Star - Reiki Abundance and Prosperity Symbol

The Midas Star – Reiki Abundance and Prosperity Symbol

The symbol can be drawn on the cash or cheque, which we receive, or also drawn on a piece of paper and kept in our Reiki box to ensure free flowing money and abundance. The symbol is also extensively used in Feng Shui by painting it in different colours keeping in mind Ba Gua color theory and five-element theory with feng shui symbolism in shapes.

This is one of the most close guarded symbol of Seichem Reiki and being attuned to it can do wonders. :)

Attunement Triggers Healing Crisis

Article by Angie Webster

Lots of people believe that once they are attuned to Reiki they will never be sick for very long again. They think they will be able to heal themselves from any illness they previously struggled with, no matter how long it went on. I thought this as well. The truth is, many people who are led to Reiki have a long history of being ill or of dealing with repeated loss or abuse in their life. I think perhaps some of them are guided to Reiki to help them learn to heal these patterns of illness and dysfunction.

But part of the learning process with Reiki is to learn that healing does not mean the same as cure. And healing rarely happens overnight and it almost never happens the way our logical minds plan for it. Healing is a messy process and it is not passive. Receiving Reiki is passive, but the healing itself is never passive. Inner work is done and shifts take place in the life of the person being healed. This is often a very uncomfortable process. And it can look and feel an awful lot like being very, very sick.

Spring Beauty

Image by AlicePopkorn

I often think of this the same way as I think of spring cleaning. You clean out a closet, a cabinet, a drawer or even a crowed, cluttered and messy room, filled with junk. When you do this, you have to pull all that junk out. It makes a huge mess all over your house. It looks terrible for a while and you may wonder what you got yourself into. It takes careful sorting through all the clutter and wiping all the dust out from the rooms, closets, and drawers of your house before you finally have a lovely, fresh smelling and tidy home again. It’s well worth the work when you keep at it. If you stop in the middle or become disgusted and shove it all back in the closet, then you are left with the same mess you started with or worse.

I think the attunement process can often trigger a very long term healing crisis for some of us. It’s a process and it comes in cycles. Particularly when we have had many years of illness or dysfunction in our lives, we must allow time for these layers to peel away. It took many years for them to build up and our system has stored many memories of the traumas associated with these things. All of these must be cleared out. Letting go of these and forming new patterns can be very painful, even though it sounds as though it should be a joyful thing.

To change our lives, we must allow room for things to be shaken up, just like our house during spring cleaning. The Universe will bring into our lives just what we need, and when we open to it, we don’t resist the changes or the lessons they bring. It doesn’t mean there will not be discomfort, but remember births almost always bring a healthy level of discomfort with them!

If you have had more upheaval or illness in your life since becoming attuned, try taking a new look at the possibilities surrounding why that may be. Allow yourself to grieve each layer of the old life that lifts away from you. Understand the fear that comes with facing new things, even things you wish for. Ask for guidance from the Universe and your angels and guides. Ask for peace and don’t forget to keep doing self Reiki every day!

Archangels & Reiki

Article by Reiki Master Sunetra Dasgupta

The term “Archangel” means “An Angel of higher kind.”

The Archangels take care of people by strengthening and assisting them in every walk of life. They do not believe in any particular religion, caste or creed, and help us to heal or get healed if called upon with a pure heart. But it’s very important we keep in mind that they do not interfere in our Karma. There are Four Primary Archangels who are associated with the four main Usui Symbols. They are Archangel Michael, Archangel Gabriel, Archangel Rafael and Archangel Uriel.

Michael – “Who is Like God”

He is in charge of protection, justice, truth.

Michael grants miracles and gets rid of toxins, lower energies and spirit release.

Angel Therapy to clean ones house of low vibrations.  Here is a brake down of the steps for everyone:

1. Sprinkle rock salt in every corner of your house preferably for 24 hours.

2. Sweep the whole salt out of the house, as it absorbs all the negative energy. I also prefer to swab the house with a mixture of rock salt and water, but that’s optional.

3. Draw a power symbol in that area to seal the new energy.

4. Invoke the Archangels Michael, Gabriel, Raphael and Uriel or any other angel you want to bless your house. You can connect with HSZSN or simply invoke them by saying “ I request the presence of Archangel Michael – 3 times)

5. Request the Angels to fill the house with their light. Some of you may actually see them doing do. Otherwise, visualize them filling your home with divine light.

Some people during this time also get beautiful perfume or flower like smell in their house. You may also actually see a color in the light the Angels are using to bless and clean your home. White is for protection. Pink is to keep negative people away from your house. And purple is to protect you from evil spirits and psychic attacks.

6. Lastly, don’t forget to thank the Archangels J

This whole process should take about 20-25 minutes. Clean your house this way about twice a month with Angel therapy and see the difference!

Reiki Yourself and Your Children to Sleep with the Help of the Angels

Article by Justine Melton

I am a Reiki Master and have used Reiki for all sorts of things from healings, to room cleansings to protection, to charging things. I have my own Reiki business and feel it is my calling in life. But even with all of this it was in a moment of desperation, and burnout at the end of my day from being a single parent of two little girls that did not like bed time that I came up with a way to easily put my children to sleep.

While laying in bed one night completely and utterly exhausted from 2 hours of bargaining, tears and deal making about bedtime with my children I thought to myself that there has got to be a better way to do bedtime. Then it hit me like lightning. Why had I not been using Reiki and all of the other work that I do? I use it in every other area of my life. Why not bedtime with my children? At that moment I formed a new plan. The method that I used uses a symbol that you must be attuned to a Reiki Master level to use. However, I believe that use of the other symbols would have wonderful effects as well and get you to the same peaceful place. I do call in the help of Angels here. If you are a Reiki Practitioner but do not believe in angels you could just use the Reiki and color work alone.

My new routine is as follows:

  1. I put my daughters in their bed and Reiki their room.
  2. I put the Master Symbol on every wall, window, bed, ceiling, floor and door.
  3. I create a ball of white light in my hand that I then visualize going up and expanding throughout the room removing all that is negative out.
  4. I then begin a guided meditation where I call in the Angels. I have a special connection with Archangel Raphael so that is the angel I start with but any will work for you. I go through my mediation with each Angel standing around my children’s bed throwing a color up into the room that clears the room, goes down through their body (starting at their head then working slowly down to their toes). Then finally the light goes down into the ground taking all of their troubles away and then heals the Earth. I go through the chakra colors here, one color after another.
  5. I then end it with the Angles giving thanks for allowing them to bring these loving colors to the children and do one big master healing symbol in the center of the room.

The beauty of this routine is that you can make it as short or long as you like. When I do it the session averages ten min and my kids are fast asleep by the end of the guided meditation. These are children that normally fight bedtime. They look forward to this routine and bedtime is no longer a struggle. I use this routine on myself as well and it puts me in a deeply relaxed state. Allowing Reiki and Angels to assist with bed time with their divine light has been one of my favorite experiences with using Reiki so far.

Exploring The Universe Through The Chakras – Our Interdimensional Travel System To Self

by Nadine Grant

The chakras are energy vortexes, in Sanskrit, Energy wheels or discs that preside over certain power fluctuations within our soul’s cellular imprints. Those who work with their energies and the energies of others, know that in order to heal the body, the mind and the very seed of our souls - the doorways to those trails of potential evolution are located within the chakras. We travel the universe interdimensionally and flout the rules of time when we explore the chakras in the meditative state. Any issues in life – health, addiction, mental clarity or lack thereof, anger management problems, social anxiety, repeated experiences of sexual abuse, whatever the core underlying experience one is having difficulty with, can be attributed to an energy that is blockading or influencing one or more of these centres.

Life-force imbalances exist in energy form until they are manifested physically in order to achieve some level of vibrational symmetry within the being. Which is why it is important to journal and meditate and contemplate our own energies, regularly, so that we can remain balanced and in alignment with who we are. Life is more fluid when we shed our layers as snowflakes during contemplation rather than manifesting them as avalanches in life. The path to totality with the self is an unremitting assignment in stripping away everything that we are not and we greatly reduce our level of suffering in the world by understanding the fundamentals of the chakra system. They play such a huge part in our evolution and yet they are often perceived as an insurmountable barrier - causing many seekers to break or end completely, the passage to self.

Into the Chakras: Gateways to the Inner Worlds

Some of the deepest soul scars reside in the chakras and to unearth the layers, one must begin to traverse the deepest echelons that make up the total experience of the Self. This means, to enter in full conscious awareness, but surrendering to the experience in the moment. “A foot in both worlds” as the shamans would say. Once in the meditative state, grounded, centred and ready for travel into the void, bringing all conscious awareness to the chakra one feels holds the most emotional energy, allows the seeker to travel the worlds within the chakras. If you are having a string of bad luck financially, bring awareness to the root chakra; lessons in love? Focus on the heart chakra. Personal power and intuition imbalances, focus on the solar plexus and third eye chakras.

And to focus, simply means, to hold your consciousness in that spot. It’s a feeling of being aware of that area of your being, without physically sighting the area or touching it. This very exercise of examining the body for energies is what strengthens the third eye and intuitive faculties and concurrently, our healing forces.

In addition to clairvoyance, this method of healing uses clairaudience, clairsentience and empathy and builds up the neural receptors so that it becomes easier with practice. Like any method well practiced, the technique will build bridges between intuition and logic, creating a magical symbiosis of harmonized energy – which occasionally you will hear, humming away within.

An early experience of the root chakra showed me a long forgotten memory – a still and quiet scene that had a shimmery, mercury overlay to the whole thing. It was akin to being a star in a black and white film, but with an ominous and foreboding feeling that saturated the entire experience. From my perspective (lay on my back on a woodland floor) my view would only permit me a vision of tree tops blowing slowly in a gentle breeze. The view of the dull, cloudy sky through the trees added deeper darker layers to the grim atmosphere. It was to be another six months until the pieces came together for this vision. That what I was envisioning was my own death in a previous incarnation.

Murders, sexual abuses, shames and guilt’s – all of the shadowy stuff we don’t want to deal with reside in the centres. These are the kinds of energies that block and hinder our development if left unresolved. Fascinatingly, all that’s needed to heal a chakra is to view/feel/sense and (or) acknowledge the living contents. The very act of viewing energy, moves and transforms energy, which is finally been reflected in modern science. The observation of particles and energy, causes the observed particles to behave differently. Repressing our thoughts, feelings, experiences and inner truths all serve to create a stagnant flow of life force, whereas liberating the energies by keeping an open channel creates a lightness of spirit that cannot adequately be explained in words.

The Horror Within Creates the Illusion Outside

There are many who state that in fact, the reason we feel so out of control in our lives, is because the chakras control our fate. Which is a fine line of reasoning. They can drag us around like puppets on strings making us feel very out of control and limited to victimhood perception if left unchecked. However, the need for control is strictly an ego mechanism. Humans are excellent at distracting themselves with illusion, which is nothing more than a self-assembled structure to stay small. Change can be daunting. But what is more daunting, is the fear-of-fear mentality which spreads to excess from human to human. Fear-of-fear will have us hushing and disregarding anything which challenges us to grow, including our own chakras.

There has been much to do about chakra removal and the chakras being implants and whatnot. The truth is so often much more uplifting. That we do not need to control outside elements as much as shed light on inner aspects of our being. This brings clarity to what we are supposed to be doing from a personal standing, figuring out our own motives and intentions. It also helps us to transcend duality.

*Seeing* ourselves through our third eye shows us where our own moralities lie. We cannot possibly judge others when we have seen ourselves as the murderer/the murdered, the rapist/the raped. The Unseen Architect of life will have us judging others if we are not aware of ourselves. To gain clarity into the soul and intuiting where our own personal journeying is leading us is so much more valuable than falling into yet more fear patterns that only serve to keep us in the resonation of energies which have been running the show thus far.

Demonising the chakras and creating a reality that they are yet another element of ourselves to be feared and repressed, helps nobody and only stems from a misunderstanding of how to work with the energies within them.

Gaia has her own chakras, the universe no doubt has energy centres with which to release and transmute all lower energies as well as being portals to other worlds. It would be prudent of each of us to use our own travel systems to heal our timelines rather than allowing ourselves to be dwarfed by yet more erroneous fears.

Everything unnecessary and illusory falls away from us when we recognise once and for all how energy truly works. We create our own demons. Yet those demons can just as easily be healed as they can be fed.

How to Do an Aura Scan: In Person & Distance Scanning

Article by Haripriya Suraj, Reiki Master

Scanning the aura is an integral part of energy work. The following approaches can be used to scan the aura:

Visual Approach - Some people are highly visual. They can just take one look at someone and receive information about the health of his or her aura. They may also see colours and shapes that represent the flow of energy in the aura. There are yet others who are able to see disruptions in the flow of energy in their third eye.

Kinaesthetic Approach - Some people are more kinaesthetic. They may not actually see energetic blocks with their eyes, but they can sense disruptions in the flow of energy in the aura. They may feel these disruptions as sensations of heat, cold, tingling etc.

Combination Technique – It is also possible to use a combination of the visual and kinaesthetic approaches.

Meditation time

There is no right or wrong way to scan the aura. You can do whatever works for you. The only prerequisite is that you practise Reiki regularly. Regular Reiki practice develops our sensitivity to energy. This in turn makes scanning the aura a very simple task. When we do not practise regularly, we lose our sensitivity to energy and this makes scanning the aura a lot more challenging.

It is possible to scan the aura of people who are in proximity to us and also of people who are at a distance. The techniques are described below.

In Person Scanning

  • Ask the person to lie down comfortably.
  • Have them take a few deep breaths and relax. It is a good idea to have soothing music playing in the background.
  • Stand near the head of the person.
  • Connect with Reiki, your Reiki Guides, Spiritual Guides and Angels and request them to assist you during this process.
  • Visualise a shield of white light forming around you and covering you from head to toe. This is for your protection as you go about scanning the aura.
  • Starting from the top of the head, gradually move your palm (or palms) over the person’s right side.
  • In your first few attempts, make sure you spend at least a few seconds at every position in order to get a feel of the energy in different points of the aura. As you practise, you will be able to spot deficiencies in the flow of energy in shorter periods of time.
  • As you move your palm, make a mental note of all the points in the energy field where you sense a disruption in the flow of energy. You could also keep a notebook and pen with you and make notes right as you scan.
  • Repeat the same with the left side of the body. You could also scan the front and back sides of the body in a similar fashion.
  • Whenever you sense a block, close your eyes and receive impressions of the colour, size, shape and texture of the block. You may see the details of these blocks in your mind’s eye or you may just sense them. Trust the first impressions you receive and do not try to analyse them. As you receive these impressions, you may also receive messages about what these blocks represent. Invariably, the details you see point at unresolved emotions, recurring mental patterns, unhealthy behaviours etc that the person needs to heal. Make a note of all the messages you receive as they offer invaluable guidance to the person receiving the healing. If you are not able to receive these messages in the beginning, it is perfectly fine. Do not strain to receive messages. You will start receiving them as you practise. You could also request your guides to help you receive these messages.
  • Proceed to remove the blocks using whatever technique resonates most with you.
  • Finish with a full body Reiki healing. Pay particular attention to the areas from which the blocks were removed and flood them with Reiki.

Distance Scanning

If the person to be treated is at a distance, it is still possible to scan the aura.

  • Make a rough sketch of the body on a sheet of paper. This sketch would be your reference and represents the person who is being scanned.
  • Connect with Reiki, your Reiki Guides, Spiritual Guides and Angels and request them to assist you during this process.
  • Visualise a shield of white light forming around you and covering you from head to toe. This is for your protection as you go about scanning the aura.
  • Invoke the distance healing symbol Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen and connect with the person. Invoke Cho Ku Rei and strengthen the connection.
  • As before, start scanning from the top the head. In this case, you will have to place use the sketch as your reference and place your palm over the head that is drawn.
  • Scan the right, left, front and back sides of the body respectively, all by moving your palm over the sketch.
  • As in the case of in person scanning, receive impressions of the blocks and also messages (if any). Make a note of these details.
  • Proceed to remove the blocks using whatever technique resonates most with you.
  • Finish with a full body Reiki healing. Pay particular attention to the areas from which the blocks were removed and flood them with Reiki.

Post Healing Discussion

Discuss the information you received from the aura scan with the person. Lay particular emphasis on the messages you received from the blocks. If they pointed at making life changes or healing recurring patterns, ensure you explain this clearly. This is crucial because unless we heal recurring patterns in our lives, the same blocks tend to resurface sooner or later. In many cases, Reiki alone manages to heal the blocks without a need for further intervention. But in the case of issues that are deep rooted, the person might have to do other healing work along with Reiki to achieve the desired healing.

Reiki Away Your Lower Back Pain

Article by Patti Deschaine

There are many causes of back pain, and lower back pain specifically.
Sprains, pulled muscles, over exercising, over doing in general, bad posture, hip and congenital issues, all of these lead to pain and muscle spasm.

Think of your skeleton from the feet up. Every bone is meant to be aligned, from heels to ankles, to knees to hips. The spine with its energy centers holds everything upright, even, balanced symmetrical. Hips should be squared, shoulders even, head held high as if from a single thread. Those of you who do yoga may recognize the components of this alignment. In my own yoga practice, I strive for exactly this balance in my poses.

Problem is, we are not all perfect and we get out of balance, physically, mentally and spiritually. We pay chiropractors and other medical professionals to fix our aches and pains. We put our hard earned cash on the counter for prescription drugs, but is there a simpler, better way? Certainly powerful pain meds have their place, but chronic use can lead to addiction. And while you should always seek medical attention for serious injuries, Reiki healing can be a wonderful alternative or complement to traditional medicine.

I personally have a lot of experience with lower back pain. A fused vertebrae in my spine makes one side of my back muscles pull harder to make up for the lack of movement on my left side. Because of this, my hips go cock-eyed – the left side pulls forward, the right back, making it absurdly easy for me to strain those muscles. Over the years, I have visited several chiropractors. Sometimes this helped and sometimes it didn’t. I had better experience with therapeutic massage, which I love but the expense demands that I be practical about frequency. So recently I have tried practicing more focused Reiki self healing.

Now, I self heal a lot. Daily. Not for long periods of time, but certainly every night before falling asleep, I call in Reiki energy as I meditate and review my day. And I always call in the energy as I start my day connecting to spirit. But I don’t necessarily direct the energy anywhere in particular, my hands just land where they may, typically on my belly. Reiki energy always goes to exactly where it is needed anyway, right?


This week, after driving 17 hours from Maine to my new home in North Carolina, I had more than the usual amount of back strain. It got so bad I could hardly move the entire weekend.
So I got out some crystals that assist with pain: a clear crystal wand, a healer’s gold stone, some blue kyanite, a red jasper to ground. Then I set out to clear my chakras. I did it exactly as I would for someone who comes to me for healing. I used the symbols to call in Reiki energy and the wand to sense the spinning movement of the chakras, starting with the root chakra. Working my way up through all seven chakras to the crown – I cleared the blockages, then sent in balanced Reiki energy.

Naturally, I felt better immediately. Even though I had massage with Reiki last week and have regular sessions via healing circles, I still had some blockages that caused me trouble. With those blockages removed, I noticed more ease of movement and much less pain. In addition, Reiki energy’s warmth is very soothing to aches and pains. With some Reiki and a couple of days rest, I was back to feeling well enough to get on my yoga mat again.

Reiki and Smoking Addiction

Article by Tammy Hatherill, Reiki Master

How many people are addicted to cigarettes? How often have you heard, “I wish I could just give up the cigarettes?” In Australia, in 2011/2012 according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, 20.4 % of males and 16.3 % of females – smoke. That’s a huge number of people who are addicted to nicotine and putting their lives, and the lives of the people around them, in danger. If only they knew how Reiki could help them overcome this addiction. If only they knew the power and the healing properties of Reiki.

With all my Reiki 1 students I share with them, that Reiki can help and assist people overcome addictions and I use smoking as a very good example. In class I teach 2 traditional symbols (Cho Ku Rei and Sei Hei Ki) along with teaching 13 NON-traditional symbols. Students leave my Reiki 1 course and can truly begin their Reiki experience.

For this article I am going to suggest that the Reiki Practitioner is living with a smoker, and she can’t stand the smell of it. It’s making her physically ill, each and every time her husband lights up.

First and foremost I would clear the house of all ‘heavy’ energy as discussed in “Reiki and Clearing Heavy Energy” article and then I would ask “source” for permission to assist the person overcome their smoking addiction. As Reiki practitioners, you will be aware that to give or send Reiki, permission must be granted and if the person is unwilling then perhaps asking ‘source’ and the persons ‘higher self’ may give you the permission you require. If source says “no”, then I would not perform Reiki.

With permission, I would say a prayer/invocation – setting my intent: “To my dear angels above, in love and light, I ask for your help and assistance to help “Johnny” overcome his cigarette addiction, for his highest good and for his health”. Then begin to Reiki the cigarette packets, the ashtray, the lighter/matches, and all cigarette paraphernalia, by using the Reiki symbols.

Cho Ku Rei & Sei Hei Ki

I truly believe that the Cho Ku Rei and Sei Hei Ki must be used in combination with each other. The Cho Ku Rei to amplify and power up the emotional symbol, which is used to lessen the ‘addiction’, the hold that nicotine has over a person. You are probably aware, addictions have an emotional component that people are trying to block, hide from or deny, so they reach for cigarettes, alcohol or drugs. The Sei Hei Ki (being the emotional symbol), needs to be more powerful than usual and so a Sei Hei Ki Sandwich is recommended:

Sei Hei Ki Sandwich

If the smoker has a particular location they “light up” all the time, such as the back veranda, I would go there and Reiki the area using the Reiki sandwich and invocation. You have already cleared and cleansed the entire house of heavy energy, and by going back and using this suggestions can only help and assist even further.

Reiki everything and everywhere, that is related to his smoking habit. If he smokes whilst drinking coffee or an alcoholic beverage; then Reiki these items to break the chain of addiction. If he smokes in the car, then Reiki the car so the feeling just isn’t there, when he gets in. There are no limits on what you can Reiki to assist in breaking the ‘addiction’ and the ‘desire’ for cigarettes. It will ultimately come down to your intimate knowledge of the person and their habit.

Also depending on what Reiki you have learned and what symbols you’ve been attuned to, you can use more than the two mentioned in this article. For those who have learned distance Reiki, you could also send Reiki to the future, present and past, to help overcome addiction and to ease any withdrawal symptoms.

Should you have a person’s permission to perform Reiki, then you could do all of the above as well as give a beautiful Reiki treatment to the addicted person. What a glorious combination, with using Reiki around the home, on objects and physically giving or sending Reiki energy to help with a very big issue.

Do this as many times as necessary (always thanking ‘source’ afterwards). I’m sure you’ll notice a decline in the persons ‘desire’ to smoke; and as you continue to do your daily ‘ritual’ of sending Reiki into objects and around the house, clearing energy and setting your intent, the person will more than likely give up the cigarettes without understanding why they ‘suddenly’ don’t feel like smoking anymore. Reiki would have helped you in the most profound way. Give it a go and see what happens. Remember Reiki can do no harm.

I do hope this article has given you some great tips and ideas in breaking addiction. I’ve used smoking as an example but these techniques could be used on all addictions. You just have to be dedicated on doing the Reiki regularly. Do it daily if you can.

Love, light and harmony.
