Nentatsu-ho is a Reiki method for sending a thought or wish, also called a “deprogramming” technique. The technique itself is thought to send a though or wish to yourself (higher self) or that of another with Reiki energy or vibrations.
The technique is simple to do and involves placing your hands another’s head (or your own) and confidently transmitting or sending the message with a pure mind and intent.
It is important to understand that this is not healing with mind power, but rather sending a message to the person’s sub consciousness with the Reiki energy.
Do not push, strain or try to hard as it can create tension for you and the other person. Like all reiki techniques, this is an effortless practice. It is done from a relaxed, meditative state of mind that is free of selfish intent.
This technique is still seen in the west in some attunement sets. It is common for the hands to be placed on the forehead and back of the head and to place an affirmation such as “you are perfectly attuned to the Reiki”, etc., when doing the attunement.
Nentatsu-ho can be used to share or transmit the five principles of Reiki, to remove bad habits, to reinforce good or positive alternate behaviors when treating bad habits, to reinforce functional or positive affirmations and many other possibilities.
If you are doing this for other people, make sure you understand clearly what the other person wants. Make sure you choose positive affirmations.
A. Connect to Reiki. One method is to hold your hands up high in the air to feel the Reiki energy and let its light flow into your whole being.
B. Bring the hands down and place one hand on the forehead (hairline) and the other on the back of the head. The affirmation “I am the Great Universe, Great Life Source and Great Reality” was taught to me to say at this point.
You can say, “you are healed, healthy, well” or any other affirmation that you choose. It is an aid to treatment and healing. The important part is to keep the intent clear, pure and confident.
C. Move the hand on the forehead to the back of the head by placing that hand on top/bottom of the other hand that is already on the back of the head and send the energy there for several minutes.
