Reiki can be a wonderful tool to help with everyday life. I’ve posted link above for an article I found on Reiki Rays concerning how a Reiki Practitioner can protect and guard their own energy during a session. I’ve used similar practices when doing a Reiki session, but I’ve found these practices to be helpful during my clinical practice.
When I do a Reiki session, I typically ground myself with a few minutes of meditation, focusing on my feet, and much like this article mentions, allowing my energy channels to receive and transmit.
As a physician, I found doing something similar is a lifesaver. I’m much busier in clinic, so its a luxury to have more than a few minutes between patients. Once I enter an exam room, I ground myself as I sit to speak with the patient. I also invoke Reiki, but as you can imagine this isn’t so easy in a busy clinic. I can use my feet as I sit to ground during the patient’s appointment.
I feel that everyone needs some kind of grounding throughout the day. Simply engage with the Earth through your feet and take a few deep breaths. If time allows, you can do a few minutes, but even a few seconds can help build a protective shield as well. Taking a few deep breaths at the same time helps even more.
Thank you for stopping by! Have a wonderful evening!
