Reiji-Ho and Chiryo
Reiji means “indication of the spirit” and is the second pillar of Reiki. This is a process that prepares one to give a Reiki treatment. It involves the use of Gassho, a short prayer for the benefit of the client and focus on ones intuitive guidance.
Here’s how it works:
- Do the Gassho meditation, but only for a minute or so.
- Say a prayer giving thanks to the spirit of Reiki and asking it to begin flowing now.
- Say a prayer on behalf of the client, asking that she/he be completely healed.
- Bring your hands up to the third eye and ask the spirit of Reiki to guide your hands to where they are needed.
- Now wait and see what happens.
- Follow your inner guidance and allow your hands to be directed by the spirit of Reiki.
- You will be guided to a certain area of the body.
You may see a body part in front of your inner eye, or the body part to be treated may “jump” out at you. You might even hear what part of the body to treat, or you may simply feel or know where you should start. Some people feel the prompting within their own bodies.
Notice any internal impressions you may get. Use all the clues available to you. Trust your intuitive self.
This word means “treatment” and is the third pillar of Reiki. The kind of treatment Dr. Usui taught relies on ones inner guidance rather than a predetermined set of hand positions. In this way, each treatment is unique and focuses on what the client needs to create wholeness.
After doing Reiji-ho, continue to follow your inner guidance allowing yourself to be directed. Treat as many places on the body or in the aura as you feel compelled to. During this process, allow yourself to enter a very relaxed state and to become one with the Reiki energy.
