Opening the Third Eye with Reiki Practice

I have had some clients concerned about recurrent frontal headaches and/or a feeling of pressure in the forehead, which is sometimes more prevalent during a Reiki session and then calms afterward, sometimes is just a recurring concern they bring to the table. This is caused by the third eye trying to open. I was meditating this morning and got a clear impression of the eye behind the forehead trying to open as a thought of a client experience wafted through my head. The third eye is our wisdom and inner vision. It is the site of the Heaven Ki in Reiki and is one of the three major energetic centers of the body in the Usui Japanese Reiki energy system. Many times, we have closed this inner eye and knowing, often because of painful experiences or self-doubt or because of fearfulness. As we begin to grow and become spiritually self-aware, this eye is begging and pleading to open for us. Often there will be a sense of conflict in the third eye area leading to different types o…

Visual Art and Healing

(image: Saddle by Janine Antoni) Visual images and contemporary art have always informed my understanding of reiki, energy work and soul realignment. Specific images resonate with who we are and help us understand any primary life lessons we have chosen or with which we are currently engaging. Often they help us understand where we are and those aspects of our current path that are hard to put into words. The following is an sight reading about work by the artist Janine Antoni. Janine Antoni is an artist whose work is tied to the senses and how we experience and engage with the world through the physical. Instead of focusing purely on how the art object looks, her approach is more likely to draw the viewer into an engagement through touch, smell, taste, or sound and into the process of how the work comes to be. This approach draws us into our perception of how we make choices, take actions and experience the world, whether she manipulates chocolate sculptures with her mou…

Healing Personal Power

Healing Personal Power By: Reiki Reverend, Antonio Dixon - Pollightways.com Our personal power, in all its glory, can come from a variety of places and manifest itself in a variety of ways.... We’re all familiar with the term inner fire. That amazing feeling like we’re on top of the world and nothing can stop us. Well, what happens when life circumstances diminish this power? What happens when we lose sight of how to get it back. As we involve ourselves in many endeavors, tackling this mystique of existence, there is a common understanding that sometimes things just happen. Sometimes, these things are unavoidable, and cannot be solved normally. During these times, our power is taxed. Utilized through any potential way possible to further our goals and aims. After some time, and many things manifesting themselves in our lives as hurdles or obstacles, we are brought to an unforeseeable inevitability. That at some point, our personal power will wane to a point where our …

Reiki and the Seeker`s Journey

Reiki and the Seeker`s Journey It seems to be a fact that people are drawn to Reiki as and when the time and circumstances are right for them. As a Reiki student I saw this fact written in many texts and articles about Reiki and I took it at face value. It was certainly true in my own life but I did not fully understand it until I began to teach students myself and went searching for more information. One of the first questions that I ask every new group of students is  “Why are you here?” On the surface the answers that they give may be different but the underlying theme is always the same: “I am looking for something. There has to be more to life than I am experiencing.” As I have learned more about Reiki from my own experiences and those of the students that I have been privileged to meet it has become very apparent that this underlying quest for “more” is universal-everyone feels the pull of it at some time in their life. We all become Seekers of some sort of de…

Reiki Music with a 3 or 5 Minute Bell or Chime

Playing Reiki Music during your Reiki Healing Sessions is a great way to help set the scene and create the right ambience in your reiki healing room. Reiki on its own, will of course relax your client and allow them to drift into a deeper state of peaceful relaxation. However, adding the right type of Reiki Music, that relaxes both yourself and your client and helps you to focus on becoming the channel for Reiki to flow through you, without the need to be constantly thinking about is it time to move onto the next reiki hand position is really helpful. Especially when you first start practicing Reiki, and you have not yet fully developed your intuition, and find that following the three to five minutes per hand position format, really useful as it can help you to stay focused and make the session run smoothly, which of course will inevitably help to build your own confidence in your ability as a Reiki Practitioner. Personally, when we first started practicing Reiki back in…

Anatomic Illustrations for Reiki

There is something beautiful about all scars of whatever nature. A scar means the hurt is over, the wound is closed and healed, done with. - Harry Crews

Reiki with its infinite wisdom goes to the place in the body that requires healing. That is why Reiki is so easy to learn and apply. There is no need to study the anatomy of the human body or animals to treat a person or animal successfully. You simply place your hands on the body and channel the energy. Reiki will do the rest.

However, it can be helpful to know where the major organs, lymphatic and endocrine systems are in the body. This knowledge will allow you to treat specific problems or organs quickly and easily.

The following illustrations are simple diagrams of the human anatomy. If you decide to further your studies we recommend that you make full use of your publi…

Preparing for Reiki 1 - The Path to Reiki

People from all walks of life are drawn to Reiki for many different reasons. Many people come to Reiki after a personal recommendation from a friend who has already attended a workshop.
