Reiki has so many wonderful applications. One of my favorites is the World Peace Meditation created by William Rand. Please see this link for details, history of the World Peace Meditation, as well as the handy crystal grids that you can download and print to use during the meditation.
The premise of the World Peace Meditation is that if as many of us as possible focus healing energy on the entire world, a wave of healing will be created. Anyone can participate in this event, ideally you can meditate for about 15 minutes at 7:30pm in your time zone.
I am taking advantage of a wonderful WordPress feature, using this future blog post as a reminder to myself as well to send healing energy and so that I will not forget myself.
