Reiki has always been a gift to humanity. In this time of Pandemic – Covid 19, we can apply Reiki to boost our immune system and live with Reiki Principles to remain calm and steadfast to address the situation.
Our healthy ways and lifesytles of eating good food, having enough sleep and rest, and having pyshical exercises should not be undermined as we live and heal with Reiki.
1. Self-Reiki and Energy Boost Everyday
1.Never miss a day without Self-Reiki. This will ensure that our energy body is boosted and so is our physical body. When doing the Self-Healing, you may focus on the following:
a. Crown Energy Center – This will lead to the strengthening of our whole being – our Spirit that connects us our Divine Creator. We need a strong faith to face the present situation. Only the power higher than man can alleviate the situation that human ego has made. All wisdom comes from God. On the physical level, focusing on the crown can also regulate our pineal gland which produces melatonin that is needed for a good sleep. Good sleep boosts our immune system. More so, the center also governs the muscles, bones, cells, blood, and the entire body.
b. Throat Energy Center – This can strengthen the physical throat that is usually affected by the COVID 19. Focusing on this center can also lead us to being flexible to adapt to the situation.
c. Heart Energy Center – This can strengthen our physical lungs and heart, and also open ourselves to compassion to others which is needed in this moment. This also leads us to unity among others.
d. Solar Plexus – This can strengthen our will and power to do what is good and helpful for us and the environment. Focusing on this center can also boost our physical body since here the center of the physical energy lies.
e. Sacral Energy Center – This can release our fear and guilt on anything. Focusing on this center will enhance our creativity and self-affirmation. When our sacral is strong, we can fight any contagious disease.
f. Base Energy Center – This can make our physical body strong as well as enhance the feeling of safety. A strong base energy center can allow us to withstand whatever challenges in life may come along.
2. Meditate with Gassho and Joshin Kokyuho
Through Gassho Meditation, we strengthen our connection to the Divine God and to the
oneness with all. When meditating with Gassho, aside from feeling the presence of the Divine God,visualize the blessing of God as a golden light pouring into our soul and into the physical body. Golden light is a strong color of light for transformation and transmutation. Click the link below for the Gassho Meditation.
Through Joshin-Kok-yu-ho or Reiki Breath, activate the Three Diamonds which are the centers for Reiki practice – the Crown (represents Heaven, the connection to the Divine Energy), the Dan-Tien located two inches below the navel (represents Earth, the connection to the physical energy), and the heart center (the manifestation of love for self and creation). We meditate with Joshin-Kokyu-ho to activate and strengthen our “dan-tien” or power source which will enhance our physical energy and our capacity to be a channel for healing. When the power source is enhanced, the energy moves up and opens our heart energy center – the seer of the soul. Click the link for the guide for meditation.
3. Bathe under the Sun
Bathe under the sun from 6am – 8am not only to get the vitamin D but also to ensure
that our etheric body receives the solar energy and is also cleansed by it. When our etheric body is strong, our physical body will also be strong.
4. Use Crystals
Crystals are a creation of God. As they are part of nature, they emit a healing component beneficial to human beings. They can be used as supplementary tools to conventional medicine, but not as a replacement. St. Hildegard of Bingen in her writing in “Physica” says the following:
“ The devil abhors, detests, and disdains precious stones. This is because he remembers that their beauty was manifest on him before he fell from the the glory which God had given him.”
Crystals cannot be used for negative intention. The following are the crystals
recommended by Saint Hildegard for use:
a. Emerald – is powerful for combatting all negative human conditions and pestilence, weakness and sickness as it is invigorated by the sun and the vitality of the air. It is good to have an emerald beside the individual, when one has an ailment in the heart and stomach.
St. Hildegard: When a person is infected with pestilence, one should place the emerald in his/her mouth, so it becomes wet from saliva and the saliva heats up from the stone. Repeat and place the stone on one’s body. The sudden pestilential attacks will cease, without doubt.
b. Topaz – is good for fever.
St. Hildegrard: Place a Topaz tumble stone in some water or wine. After a few minutes, remove the topaz from the water or wine, then drink the formula. Or, one can stare at the topaz in the water or wine and use this affirmation – “I look at mself, just as the cherubim and seraphim look at God in a mirror, so this fever might be cast from me.” One should do this often and he/she will be cured.
c. Chrysolite – used also for fever.
St. Hildegard : A person who has fever should heat up some wine and hold chrysolite over the vapor of that wine. Its sweat should be mixed with wine and should drink the warmed wine. He should also place the chrysolite in his mouth for a little while. If he does this often, he will be well.
d. Jasper - for thick nasal discharge.
St. Hildegard: One who has a thick nasal discharge should put jasper near his/her mouth and breath on it with his/her warm breath, so that it becomes warm and moist. Then he should set it in his nostrils and press his nose with his hand. This makes its heat enter his head, so the the humors in head are loosened more quickly and gently, and he/she will be better.
Cyrstals are beautiful creations of God. Their beauty is healing.
5. Live With the Reiki Principles
The effects of Reiki in our lives are seen as the way of practicing the Reiki Principles in everyday living.
Just For today, I am at Peace
We may find discomfort as the government implements things to find solutions to prevent the spreading of Covid 19. Do not let this discomfort turn into anger. Instead, accept the situation that we cannot change, and uplift the condition that is within in our hands and within our reach. Instead of complaints, let us make ourselves safe and healthy and do the same for our community. Remain calm and at peace, so as not to add to the discontent of the people.
We may find ourselves looking for blame on the situation. Truth will be revealed in the near future, but for this moment, let us not speak or do any action that can lead to discrimination, division and dis-harmony of people.
Just For Today, I trust
When fear creeps in, pray and remember that God is in charge. Fear is the disease of the modern
world. Fear controls and divides people. We become uncompassionate when we are overwhelmed by
fear. Panic buying is one act of fear that shows greed. Our mind is created by God to architect our
reality. So, instead of fear, let us sow calm and trust. Spend time visualizing a good outcome of the
situation. Visualize nature helping us. Visualize the angels coming to our rescue. Visualize all those
who are sick being healed. Visualize the earth healing.
When we trust the Divine order, we allow God to work for us. Fear is a negative prayer. Let us pray in
the right way.
Just For Today, I am Grateful
The present moment is always the best moment if we shall look into our lives beyond their mere
physical meaning. Start and end the day with gratitude either in affirmation or prayer. Show
gratitude to everyone who is helping us to be safe and comfortable in the present situation. The gift of
life is present even in this present moment. Let me detail here the gifts of gratitude according to
- - Gratitude enhances empathy.
- - Gratitude gives us a long and peaceful sleep.
- - Gratitude gives us mental strength like resilience. This is shown in a study among war veterans in 2006
Just for Today, I work joyfully.
Relieve yourself from stress by enjoying the present moment. Find things that can make you and your family happy while at home. Draw, read, play, sing, dance, write or fix something in your home. Find time to meditate and and reflect on spiritual scripture. The heart emanates vibrations at a diameter of 15 feet away from itself, so be happy when falling in line for grocery or other services. This will make everyone around you happier, thereby making the environment less stressed
Work and play. Work and pray.
Just For today, I am Love.
Show reverence to every creation. Let us watch our words and action so as not to divide or discriminate. Show love in every act. Loving ourselves leads us to loving others. Differentiate the act of selfishness which is out of fear to real self-love. Meditate on your heart chakra to help. Offer Reiki to others – to the sick people, to the government, to healthcare system and to the whole community. Send reiki to the whole world.
6. Additional Practical Tips
Let me share here some practical tips related to our healing others.
- When healing others, go with your Divine Guidance. There is nothing right or wrong whether we heal laying hands on or of or even at a distance. What matters most is the love that we emanate and our trust in the Divine Source.
- Keep up to date with the news and policies of the government regarding the prevention of COVID 19.
- We might have to cancel classes if there is lockdown in our area. If attunement is not necessary in the class, we may hold classes online.
- When holding a class in-person, advise the students who are sick, with coughs or colds to refrain from attending the class.
- We may follow social-distancing such an non-touching and non-hugging or no holding of hands during our Reiki class or gathering (if gathering permitted).
- Wash hands after every healing. Sanitize hands often.
- Sanitize healing places.
- Quoting from William Rand, replace hugs with namaste salute. Namaste means “The Divine in me honors the Divine in you.”
- If you are a teacher, you may attune personally even at a distance, as Reiki or energy has no boundaries.
- Use video-conferencing to follow up your clients and students.
BE HAPPY. BE WELL
