Listen In Audio
I do apologise for not being able to attach the audio recording last week but this week all is well again
We have had strong winds most of the week, so now, almost all of the leaves have blown off the trees and nature has kindly tidied up our garden for us.
Nature is so wonderful! She has blown all the leaves off our back lawn and into the woods We had done our bit, of course, by blowing and raking tons of them the day
If only we’d been a little patient… ha ha ha!
It seems drier and brighter now than in the bloomin’ summer… ho hum!
Unfortunately some big willow trees are down by the big pond but we have since seen the heron and the moorhens don’t seem bothered by it.
OK… onto this weeks questions.
How important do you feel it is to use the middle finger versus the index finger, to draw the symbols? Do you know with whom that teaching originated? (just curious)
And my answer…
The fire finger is used in most martial arts for ‘shooting’ energy out.
Try the ‘bending a candle flame’ exercise to prove this
I don’t know who discovered this originally (but probably the Chinese). Energy leaks from the body from all the ‘pointed’ bits… elbows, shoulders, fingers and toes and your nose!!! etc.
But you can intend the Reiki energy to flow from anywhere you focus it from… eyes, palms, etc.
I would simply suggest you use whichever finger works best for you
And another question or two…
When I use Reiki on my patients how long should I hold the hand positions?
Also, does it hurt to do the attunement more than once, just for my own satisfaction?
And my answers…
Trust your intuition… but as a general guide in the beginning, place your hands in each of the 12 hand positions for about 3-5 mins per hand position. This will also give you a rough idea of how long your Reiki session will take.
But do ‘listen to your hands’ and let them move when they want to. If you do 1 min here and 6 mins there that is fine as well.
The hand positions are simply a beginners guide and eventually you will do it all by intuition and not need them at all
Our hand positions video and pdf file show you how to use the hands positions on yourself and you can join in with me doing a self treatment for 1 minute at each of the 12 hand positions.
Many Reiki practitioners will turn the client over… like a piece of toast … halfway through a session, to do the back positions but I never do.
I find it too disturbing for me and for them.
I would simply suggest ‘beaming’ the Reiki through from the front to the back areas instead.
Again, we all do things by preference… so trust your own judgement and do it your way. That way it will be right for you and your client, at that moment in time
Does it hurt to do the attunement more than once?
No. It doesn’t hurt at all actually, even when you do it once… ha ha ha!
Just thought I should clarify that…
You may repeat your self-attunement ceremony as many times as you like. People often do and also use it as a meditation tool too.
Have a good weekend everyone… now to check on that roast beef and then pie with the rugby
