Charging your bath water with Reiki

I love to take baths---I find that they not only cleanse me physically, but emotionally and spiritually. There is something comforting about the hot water and the waves and ripples of the bath water over your skin.

So, it would only make sense to make the bathwater even more healing and uplifting by charging it with Reiki.

It's simple and easy.

To do this you should be attuned to at least the 2nd degree level of Reiki (as it will require symbols from that level)

Charging Bathwater with Reiki

Step 1: Fill bathtub with hot water to desired level

Step 2: Take a deep breath and center yourself. Draw the Mental Healing Symbol (Sei He Ki) over the bathwater while repeating the symbol's name three times (either aloud or to yourself). The Sei He Ki not only helps with charging the water with Reiki, but acts as a "cleansing" tool and clears away any negativity as well.

Step 3: Draw the power symbol (Choku Rei) over the water and on the palms of your hands while repeating it's name three times (either aloud of to yourself)

Step 4: Opening the palms of your hands, "beam" the Reiki from the palms of your hands into the water while imagining a rainbow of Reiki energy permeated the water. Do so for anywhere from a few minutes to several, depending on your preference.

Step 5: Dip your hands into the water to help distribute the Reiki energy througout the whole of the water.

Step 6: Give thanks for the Reiki

Step 7: Optional: A cup or two of sea salt added to the water will help cleanse your aura and remove any negative debris from your being.

Step 8: Take the bath! Enjoy! Perhaps use this time to meditate or just read a good book as the water encompasses your being.

Everyday uses for Reiki...

So, as I was getting ready to sleep the other night I was considering some new ideas of what to put on this blog---something that I would want to read and I came to the conclusion that rather than going on and on about the benefits of Reiki (which are many!) I should give some practical appliations for the those who are already attuned to the energy--and perhaps spark interest for those who are not.

Thus beings my new blog (and new name of blog)-Reiki for Everyday.

I hope you enjoy the posts on here, and feel free to ask questions or leave comments at the end of any posting.
