This post is for my 09/17/21 Group Distance Reiki Session. If you are reading this at any time please know the energy and message, as it resonates, is perfect for you.
Earlier in the day I felt drawn to include animals as a focal point in today's session. Whether our constant companion animals, or the passing critters and creatures from our greater environment - I set an extra intention for this Reiki energy to effervesce out from each of us to further enrich the animals and their kingdoms around us.
At the start of the session the word 'Liberty' rang loudly ;) as our theme.
Once connected I did an overall body scan. Sweeping down, I felt extra energy at the left temple and left upper arm, near the shoulder on the outside - where the bicep and tricep meet. Further down the body a heaviness in the right wrist. Continuing to finish the sweep down, and then back up. At this point the feelings were most potent at the right wrist, so I started there. Now noticing it more as a feeling of tension, and even pain, strong enough to lead me to clench my jaw.
I took a deep breath to release, opening to wise, free flowing Reiki energy. An image of an eye darting around - with the thought of perhaps a lost contact lens. This morphed into the vision of suddenly being lost while walking on the streets of a big city… The noticing a street sign of familiarity, and the intense wave of confidence returning. A surety. Being back on course.
I placed some Cypress essential oil on the upper chest (between throat & heart).
Returning to the results of the scan I placed a bridge of focus between the left arm and left temple, since those sensations came together.
I felt a rainbow arc between them. One side feeling pressure while the other is light, and then a switch the other way. Teeter-tottering. I followed the swaying flow, back-and-forth, back-and-forth, as each sensation continued to lighten, and then fully balance.
I placed Petitgrain essential oil on the inner wrists.
Noticing my initial sweep drew attention primarily to the appendages, I wanted to do an inner scan of the chakras… But first felt appropriate to bubble outward with a wider Reiki share with the aura.
I held the intention for Reiki to grace our outer energetic layers, knowing it flows to all the right individual places and spaces. Warm and cushiony and comforting. Just allowing an overall bathing for several minutes.
Moving inward for the chakra scan, noticing the scent of grounding cypress essential oil as a steady anchor, I decided to begin opposite, at the Crown chakra.
Beginning as more than a reading or assessment, I felt the energy flow from the Crown down the front of the body like warm honey, then up the back, from the Root in a steady loop. A coating. Tracing that path once again, slower now, with a pause at each chakra region: sending a longer Reiki blessing anywhere that seemed sluggish or stuck. On the front this was the Throat and Solar Plexus, on the back the Sacral. One more time, a final energetic smoothing loop, more aware of the full track and cross body connections, showering the entirety of our inner beings with Reiki light.
Bringing in Green Mandarin essential oil at the Heart & 3rd Eye, a card draw for guidance in the coming two weeks: from Sandra Anne Taylor's "Energy Oracle Cards" deck we received #21 STRATEGY: Making a Plan, upright (full card description below). This made me circle back to the idea of 'Liberty' at first connection, and how a Reiki treatment can be an energetic liberation. A diving board to jump off and to grow from, as we tune into the energy received and move further into the innate wisdom of our beings - what we need, feel, know. Reiki helps us heal ourselves - you have the power, and you are in control. Perhaps give yourself permission to look deeper and find freedom from that which may have been holding you back - especially from planning and strategizing.
Many Thanks & Best Wishes to All!
(Side note on our card: Today it stands out to me that the 'Journal Log' is center-point on this card, and the line "Write about the direction you want to go in." ..As well as the coins... financial strategy, anyone?)
