Reiki Techniques – Suffering From Colds Or Flu
We’ve just been thinking that at this time of year – depending on wherever it is in the world you are of course – colds and flu may be affecting you or your Reiki clients.
So, here’s a few Reiki techniques you might find helpful…
Draw the Distance Symbol on a piece of paper and put it under your pillow at night, intending that the Reiki energy disperse and dissolve your cold out into the universe…
… or for sinus/nasal congestion imagine the Power Symbol on the tips of your fire fingers and then – placing them in the bony dimples either side of each nostril – lean forward and support your head just on the tips of these fingers. Intend that a stream of Reiki energy, in the form of either steam or mist, flows gently through your nasal passages, clearing and cleansing as it goes.
For a sinus congested headache, use the same method as above but slide your fire fingers up both sides of your nose right to the top so that they naturally come to rest in the inner corners of your eye sockets. You’ll know when you’re in the right place as it can begin to immediately relieve the pressure of your headache and drain the nose. Hold this position for as long as feels comfortable, while intending the Reiki energy flows gently through.
Or, for your throat – draw the Usui Master Symbol onto a piece of tissue or soft paper and hold it in place on your throat using a cosy, preferably blue, scarf around your neck.
For a chesty cold use the Mental/Emotional Symbol on each palm and sit up comfortably with one hand on your heart chakra area and your other hand gently resting on your solar plexus. Simply beam the Reiki into your chest, intending that the Reiki sooth, relax and reduce the irritation.
Okay then, for balance, here’s some non-Reiki alternatives too?
A simple hot compress applied to the face is very soothing to those throbbing aches and pains of a blocked sinus, while a few drops of eucalyptus oil on a handkerchief can provide further relief.
A hot lemon drink is also extremely good, and if you add some honey, which is Judith’s favorite way, you’ll find it a great soother for a sore throat whilst giving your body some much-needed vitamin C at the same time. The juice of half a lemon with maybe a couple of teaspoons of honey in a large mug of hot water is just fine.
A ‘streaming cold’ where the nose and eyes water profusely, can also respond to drinking onion water. Simply dip a slice of onion into a glass of hot water for two seconds, then sip the cooled water throughout the day…
…half an onion on the bedside table can also alleviate cold symptoms as its essence is inhaled while you sleep.
Okay then, that’s about it for today. We hope you found these tips to be helpful.
