Applying the right Reiki positions during the Reiki treatment balances the whole body energies and brings out a relaxed and positive feeling for your clients. The crucial role to achieve this are the Reiki positions of your hands.
Once a Reiki treatment is conducted, the Reiki positions of your hands have to be properly executed. Doing it properly and mentioning ‘Reiki’ before starting, will let the individuals give the subjective feeling of heat, coldness or pulsation. Basically Reiki can be applied on others or yourself. Importantly are the right Reiki positions, which will differ from problem to problem. If you are not a Reiki practitioner, this article will give you an idea on how to deal with Reiki positions.
Basically the first Reiki positions for your hands are the face. Put your palms on the face of your client. Make sure that the palms should form a cup over the eyes while the fingers are on the forehead. There must be no pressure at all but only a gentle touch.
The second position includes the hand on the crown and on the top of the head. Both hands must be on the sides of the head whereas the heels of the hands are located near the ears. The fingertips must be able to touch the crown.
The back of the head is the third position. Form a cross by using your arms. One of the hands must be on the head while the other one is above the neck’s nape.
Touching of the heart and collarbone is the fourth Reiki hand position. Apply a V-like shape with the thumb and fingers. Make sure to easily hold your neck via the V formation and lower one of your hands and have it resting in between the collarbone and the heart.
The fifth has something to do with touching the jaw line and the chin as well. Again, let your hands form a cup and let your chin rest in it. Let your hands wrap themselves on your jaw line. The sixth position includes your ribs. Put your hand on the upper portion of the rib cage and provide some support to the bended elbows. The other hand should be on the abdomen. Let your fingertips touch your tummy.
The seventh Reiki positions are at your pelvic zone. Gently put your hands on your pelvic bone and allow your fingertips to touch this area.
The next hand position concerns your shoulders. Assuming you treat yourself, bend your elbows and arms over the head and touch your shoulder blades with your hand. While your elbows are bent, put your hands onto the center part of your back.
As the standard procedure is to treat from head to the lower parts, the final position includes the lower back and the sacrum. Let your hands rest on your lower back. Then lower your arms and place them on the sacral area and then stay relaxed.
The main intention of the Reiki positions is to let the energy flow and retain its balance once more. A practitioner will not apply a heavy pressure on the body parts but will simply touch them to promote the general flow of the somehow trapped energies.
