page is one of a series where I give my ideas on aspects of Reiki and/or
energy work. The pages are intended to give some "food for thought"
and some are only my viewpoint. While a number of facts may be included,
you should decide for yourself how much (if any) of the content feels right
After I had been teaching Reiki for a while, I began to realize that many of my students who were not involved in a healing oriented business, were just using Reiki and Light at home, as a healing tool, on themselves, family, friends, pets and plants. There didn't seem to be too many who had thought about using this wonderful tool for other areas in their life. Having used energy techniques in the office place in the past, I know that there is much potential for Reiki and other techniques in that part of our daily life, and elsewhere.
Beginning with the Light Technique you can use something like this (or Reiki) to freshen up the "air" in your work place. Simply taking time before or during work to call the Light to you (Solar Light - the Light from the Soul plane is even better), and then sending this from your heart to fill your immediate space, and eventually to your co-workers as well. If you do this from home, or on the way to work, you will find that you feel very good when you arrive at your workspace. Also, others will find they enjoy being in proximity to you at work.
Another way to use Reiki or Light is to shower co-workers with rainbow energy, or to dump an imaginary bucket of energy over anyone who walks through a certain doorway. One business owner who began showering her employees every day with Light, soon noticed a decrease in the number of sick days with her staff, and the overall attitude in the office improved greatly.
If you have co-workers or management who are especially difficult to deal with, start sending them beams of Light as described at the Light Technique page (see Reiki 1 Handouts in folder at back or my web site), remembering to tell yourself you are clear after you call the Light, and then sending it in a burst from your Heart centre, with healing intention. You may be surprised how quickly this may resolve some issues, especially from your side of things. I have found that even before the issue is resolved, I begin to feel less tension and concern about it, as I have already grown through the situation and am content from my part. By the time the other person also experiences a shift in attitude, I am ready to accept their new position.
Reiki can also be used in this manner, and you can even run it all day long. Simply write on a Post-It Note the name of the person or situation you wish to send Reiki to, and allow Reiki to flow. Every now and then, look at the Note or just think of the person and Reiki will continue to flow. If the Note is in your peripheral vision, your subconscious will pick up on this and continually send Reiki.
One friend of mine from my office days, Kirk, came to take classes from me. He was still in the same line of work as we had been in together in the 1980's. Sometime during the course of the training, Kirk accepted a management position in a new company. He found he was immediately placed in the middle of some very strong office conflict and politics. Each time he arranged a meeting with department representatives, they tried to take advantage of his inexperience with the company to get his team to do computer systems work for their own area. Kirk found that he was constantly under stress and was not happy in this new position.
I suggested he try filling the meeting room in advance with Reiki. He agreed to try this and added other level 2 and 3 techniques as well for good measure. Even during the meeting he continued to send Reiki to the "problem" representatives. Kirk said he was very impressed with the results. Not only did the meeting go smoothly, but it was the first one in which he didn't get verbally "beat up" and that everyone seemed to be in a sort of harmony. Happy with the success of these techniques, Kirk continues to use them whenever he can.
Reiki can be a part of your private and recreation time. You can allow the energy to flow as you take part in sports, a hobby, reading, your cooking, quiet moments with family and friends, or just when you are going for a walk. Each time you go for a walk simply call on Reiki and allow it to be a part of your experience. As you do this you are growing your ability to handle more and more of the energy, and you are slowly balancing your complete being. Try to find ways to fit Reiki into your everyday life.
If you have leaned other techniques for shifting situations or relationships in your life, like the "Bridge of Light" by LaUna Huffines, then you can add or combine Reiki with them. For the "Bridge of Light", after you decide what your bridge will be created for (e.g. trust, love, harmony, abundance, etc.), next let Reiki flow from your heart out onto the bridge, saturating it with healing, uplifting energy. As you walk the bridge and approach it’s center, continue to do this. If you are using the bridge to meet someone and work out an issue, continue to flow Reiki towards them. You might even imagine them willingly receiving this energy on your bridge and being more wiling and able to work out the situation to a happy or agreeable result. Then if and when you meet them in person, once again let the energies flow towards them and notice if this helps the meeting flow better and with harmony.
You can do similar exercises as you sit quietly, go for a walk or meditate on manifesting your desires and changes in your future, whether that future be near or several years down the rode. Each time you are adding to the balance and harmony that the outcome can bring to you, even if the actual result isn’t exactly as you had planned or anticipated. You are making Reiki a part of all aspects of your daily life.
