Meditation & Reiki: A Winning Combination

This article was first published on the web at this link: Reiki Rays

Preparing for Meditation
Meditation connects you to the Cosmos 

Humans tend to over-think, over-analyze, over-process and over-exaggerate. It's an affliction of the mind, the ego. The ego is constantly threatened with annihilation, so it clings to conditioned thinking with a ferocious, white-knuckled grip. It's not easy to let go of all the extraneous garbage that clogs up our mindscape and sometimes renders us immobile, because fear (anxiety) is debilitating if we allow it to be. Meditation helps us to quiet the mind

Perhaps it will take a bit of time for the quieting of our mind to come about. Prior to any meditation session, it’s helpful to calm yourself with Reiki energy first. Now that I’ve obtained the Holy Fire® Karuna Reiki Master certification, I use the powerful Kriya. But previously, I always used CKR to prepare for my meditation session.

When going into a meditative session, ego will attempt to disrupt us at times by creating agitation and unease. Simply allow your thoughts to come in without judging them or giving them an audience. Allow the thoughts to come in, acknowledge the thought and don't give the thought any more time or energy than that. If it seems your mind is running away with thoughts, bring your attention back to your breathing. 

Quieting the Mind

Allow your thoughts to flow in & out without judgement 

Focus on each inhalation of breath deep into the lungs, as well as each exhalation through up and through your lips. Calm and relaxed. Calm and relaxed. In that way, your mind becomes quiet one thought at a time. There are other ways to quiet the mind, as well, but the preceding explanation is simple and effective.  

Meditation can be taught to your clients who have anxiety issues, bipolar disorder, PTSD and other mental health issues. Meditation helps us to relax, to expand our consciousness, and to ease unwarranted fears and anxieties. It's a most effective remedy for those who are interested in quieting their minds naturally without using drugs, chemicals or any other extraneous or unhealthy methods.

Meditation, when practiced regularly, can change anyone’s Life dramatically. If you're a non-believer, one who thinks he or she cannot meditate or who thinks you cannot let go of anxiety without the use of pills, chemicals or other unhealthy means, continue doing what you've been doing, by all means.

When you're tired of living as you have been, beating your head against the brick wall over and over and expecting different results ~ perhaps you'll seek out a person who can help you learn to meditate effectively. 

Meditation has changed my Life exponentially. It can change anyone’s Life for the better when practiced regularly. Try it. You've got nothing to lose ~ except your fears, anxieties and agitation. 

Peace, Love & Light to all ~
