The 10 Rules of Reiki: Rule #5
by Taggart King
It's been a while since I spoke about my "10 Rules of Reiki" which I think are a helpful guide to getting the most out of your Reiki. So I thought it would be useful to run through them again over a number of weeks. Last time I ran through rule #4, and here's the fifth rule...
Commitment is the key
Iíve already spoken about the benefits that can come through the regular practise of Reiki, making working with the energy a regular part of your routine, trying to use the energy in some way each day. The benefits of Reiki build up cumulatively, and sporadic and irregular practice wonít be as effective in bringing you the very best that is possible for you through your Reiki. Like many things, youíll get out of your Reiki what you are prepared to put into it, and Reiki deserves a little of your time each day. If you plug away, inch by inch, a few simple practices, a few simple routines, and make them a regular part of your daily and weekly routine, like brushing your teeth and brushing your hair Ė which you always make time for Ė then youíll get the very best out of your Reiki.
And once you have established your routine with Reiki itíll seem strange when you arenít doing your daily self-treatment or energy exercises, or distant healing. It doesnít take very long before your routine can just become part of who you are and itíll be difficult to avoid using your Reiki in some way.
So how do we commit? How do we make that decision, that final decision that cuts away all other possibilities? Well I donít think you need to make such a decision. You just need to focus on today, and do something with your Reiki today, and thatís all. And when the next day arrives, you repeat the process, doing something with your Reiki today. One day at a time.
But there is something that you can do that can help you ease into your Reiki routine: visualise yourself doing what you intend to do. Get yourself into a nice comfortable position and take a few deep breaths, perhaps do a bit of a self-treatment or part of hatsurei ho, to get the energy flowing, and imagine yourself doing what you plan to do: imagine yourself sitting down at lunchtime to do 10 minutes of distant healing, bring to mind how it will feel to send 15 minutes on a park bench just bringing the energy into your tanden and then flooding the energy out to the universe. See yourself sitting on your sofa, blissed out for a while with an impromptu Reiki session, imagine yourself drifting off to sleep with your hands on your heart and solar plexus. See yourself doing these things as if you were watching yourself on a video, imagine how these things will feel, notice how you look and how your body seems so relaxed as you use your Reiki. Imagine the benefits of doing this and see yourself experiencing those positive changes in the way that you behave and respond, those changes in the way that you feel about yourself and other people, changes in the way that you think. Just notice all those positive changes that come through your Reiki practice.
What you are doing here is mentally rehearsing what you days ahead, what your week ahead, will be like, and you are programming your mind to make these things happen, each day, to bring them to mind to remind you, to make them a priority. Do this regularly and youíll be amazed by how simple it can be to ease into a really good routine with your Reiki.
Time to start Reiki Drumming?
Using Reiki with drumming is becoming increasingly popular, and I regularly hear people enthusing about how powerful and lovely this way of working is.
What is Reiki Drum technique all about?
Here is a brief description of Reiki Drum Technique and how it is used, taken from our web site:
Reiki Master Teacher Home Study Courses: Why do they work so fantastically well?
Proper support and guidance is the key
Some people might think it strange that Reiki can be taught successfully through home study, and a few people have very strong negative views about this issue, even though they haven't experienced Reiki training via this method.
I have many years of experience now of supporting people through their Reiki training by this route now, and you tell me that home study is a fantastic way to learn Reiki, where you can take your time, work at your own speed, and enjoy weeks and weeks of hands-on practice.
The key to success with Reiki home study is to break the course down into manageable chunks, make sure that your practical energy work is the priority, to receive feedback from you at each stage of the course, and to give careful, attentive support (not just leaving you to get on with it!).
I received some feedback from one of my students recently which explains how it all works far better than I could, actually, so I am reproducing her feedback in full for you to read:
