As a long time Reiki master teacher, I have taught many people how to do energy healing. This is a contribution not only to the people who are learning and the people they will treat in the future but also to the entire planet. Pain and suffering are part of the human experience but they do not have to be the majority of what we go through.
Even if you don’t want to become a Reiki practitioner, here are a few basic steps you can follow to do energy healing for another person:
Step 1. Clear the space where you will be doing the healing. This is a crucial step. Environment is the most powerful factor. When people walk into my studio, they immediately remark how much better they feel simply walking into the space. Take your dominant hand and move in a counter clockwise motion as you point to each corner of the room saying this prayer:
HEAVENLY FATHER, I CALL ON THE FORCES OF NATURE TO CONVERGE TO BALANCE ALL DETRIMENTAL ENERGIES AND INCREASE ALL BENEFICIAL ENERGIES.
Now move your dominant hand in a clockwise motion and continue your prayer.
I ASK THAT THIS HEALING SPACE BE FILLED WITH DIVINE LIGHT AND LOVE FOR THE HIGHEST GOOD OF ALL. THANK YOU GOD, THANK YOU GOD. AMEN.
Step 2. Create a safe, comfortable place for the person you will be treating to lie down. I use a massage table. During the winter, I cover it with a flannel cloth. Ask your subject to lie down. Use pillows to put under their head and under their knees. Give them a blanket if they need to be warmer. Taking both of your hands, sweep slowly and gently from their feet towards the top of your head, noticing areas of energy imbalance. This is a diagnostic move so that you can notice what is happening. The energy may feel stuck, congested, heavy, too hot or too cold. Just notice, paying attention to where the energy needs to become more balanced. Now say a prayer:
HEAVENLY FATHER, I ASK THAT HEALING ENERGY FLOW THROUGH ME AT THE HIGHEST RATE THAT IS BENEFICIAL FOR (NAME OF THE PERSON) AND FOR MYSELF. I ASK FOR IMMEDIATE HEALING NOW FOR (NAME OF THE PERSON) AND FOR MYSELF AND FOR PEACE ON EARTH AND FOR EVERYONE IN OUR CONSCIOUSNESS.
Many healers feel that if you have said the prayer you have done the healing. Prayer is so important! When you pray as you practice a healing you will be guided to know what you need to know, to feel what you need to feel, to see what you need to see and to hear what you need to feel.
Show up and get your ego out of the way.
Step 3. Keep your own energy balanced by visualizing the Microcosmic Orbit. Visualize energy flowing up your back down the front of your body in a continuous circle. This keeps the major energy centers in your own body open and balanced without intermingling with the energy of the person you are treating. Meanwhile, feel and visualize the minor chakras in the palms of your hands opening up. Sweep from head to toe in a slow, continuous fashion. Set your intention to balance each layer of the body: the physical body, the energy body, the emotional body, the mental body and the spiritual body. Once you have completed your sweeps, allow your inner knowing to draw you to the areas that most need attention. Sit or stand in a comfortable position and allow the healing energy to flow from the palms of your hands. Say to the body:
SHOW ME HEALTH, SHOW ME PEACE, SHOW ME RADIANT VITALITY.
Stay with each area until you feel complete. If you are not sure, ask the body:
DO YOU NEED MORE? ARE YOU COMPLETE?
You will either hear, see, feel or know the answer. When you are ready to move on, move to the next area until the energy is flowing freely in a balanced way.
Don’t judge the messages you receive. Allow yourself to be guided in the process.
Step 4. Final sweeps. Once the energy feels completely balanced, sweep from head to toe once again. Sweep through the physical, energetic, emotional, mental and spiritual layers. Then stand beside the person with both your hands over your head and call in golden light. Say a prayer:
I ASK THAT THIS HEALING ENERGY GO WAY DOWN DEEP, ALL THE WAY TO THE CELLULAR LEVEL. I ASK THAT THIS HEALING BE TOTALLY ACCEPTED FOR THE HIGHEST GOOD, LIFTING THE VIBRATION OF (NAME OF THE PERSON) AND MYSELF AND EVERYONE IN OUR CONSCIOUSNESS AND THE ENTIRE PLANET. THANK YOU GOD, THANK YOU GOD. AMEN.
Step 5. Allow the person you have been treating to relax as long as necessary to process the healing they have just received. Leave the room and go wash your hands. As you wash your hands, ask God to release any detrimental energies you may have picked up. When you are complete with an energy healing, let go and let God do the rest. Know that it wasn’t you or your own personal energy doing the work. Give thanks for sharing divine energy and go back into your own life experience.
