Energy meditation is just one form of spiritual meditation that you can use. And it is another great way to incorperate Reiki energy into your daily meditation practice.
This form of meditation focuses on how everything is made up of energy.
Whether you are meditating by yourself or are engaging in guided meditation lead by an instructor, this form of meditation is liberating to both the mind and the soul.
The benefits of energy meditation go beyond what we can do for ourselves emotionally and physically in everyday life. By using this form of meditation we will develop self-awareness, a higher level of understanding about people and objects around us, and a better appreciation for life in general.
Moreover, there are physical rewards that are just as beneficial. Your stress level will lower. Your blood pressure will drop. Your heart rate will decrease. You will feel liberated and free!
A Quick Session
Before engaging in an energy meditation, we need to allow ourselves to relax our physical body and our mind. We will learn to feel compassion for everyone and everything around us. This includes both living beings and non-living objects.
If you are a Reiki practitioner you can connect to Reiki by saying “I will connect to Reiki now.”
Say things like “may everyone be happy” or “may all of God’s
creatures find happiness on earth.” Be thankful to God for everything
you have. You may want to say a special prayer, give a moment of
silence, or chant a special mantra if you know one or have had one
given to you by a teacher. Provoking positive thoughts will put your mind at ease and help the meditation process flow smoothly.
Once you have your mind at rest, focus your attention on everything around you.
*If you are a Reiki practitioner you can intend to send this loving energy distantly to every person and every living thing on the planet. You can intend to surround yourself with loving white light.
Think of everything that surrounds us as energy. People, objects, animals, and all physical structures on earth should be thought of as forms of energy.
Picture all of these things turning into energy and creating an energy field around you.
Feel the warmth in your palms. Feel it going from out of your heart in to the heart of others all around the world.
See yourself surrounded in warm white light. Feel it encasing your body like a warm gentle blanket.
Start from the outside in. Once your outer energy field has been established around you,
you can focus on your inner body. Picture your body as energy (your skin, your organs, everything).
Once you have achieved perfect balance between self and environment, stay in your meditative state for about twenty or thirty minutes. Feel yourself coming back into a loving connection with the universe.
After a few minutes; When your energy begins to recede, you may finish the meditation by saying quietly to yourself “I have finished my meditation now” or something similar.
All is well.
You are loved.
