affirmations and Reiki

Affirmations are powerful in and of themselves. So, imagine them infused with Reiki!!!

There are a number of ways to manifest: affirmations, visualization, action, using the Reiki manifestation symbol and sending positive Reiki forward in time toward the desired outcome… the list goes on and on.

Today I want to focus specifically on using Reiki with affirmations so you can allow what you want to happen to actually happen. In other words, how you can get out of your own way : D.

I assume most of you are familiar with what affirmations are, but just in case you’re not, affirmations are proclamations that you say to yourself that will greatly help you have the life you want.

How do affirmations work? You can either say them aloud or silently, put them on post-its around your home or on flash cards you look at each day.

Reiki your world, and watch your world change.

Affirmations work through repetition. Essentially, every time you say or read an affirmation, you alter your subconscious beliefs about the world and yourself.

Thoughts we think over and over again create grooves in our brain, and eventually become deep-rooted beliefs.

But the good news is that you can create new grooves and render the old ones obsolete. When you think new, positive thoughts, the old grooves literally get replaced by the new ones. Amazing, huh?

Types of affirmations You Can Empower with Reiki

Adding, “I choose” or “I love” before your affirmations can help them sink in better.

You can literally create affirmations for anything you want to see in your life. Here are a few common examples…

  • Relationship affirmations:   “I deserve love now” and “I am worthy of a healthy, loving relationship”
  • Financial freedom affirmations: “I deserve to be adequately paid for my gifts” and “Money brings me freedom”
  • Self-love affirmations: “I love and approve of myself exactly as I am” and “I am great.”

Just because we can’t see things doesn’t mean they are not there. We are not necessarily meant to understand the Great Mystery.

A great idea is to say them aloud as you look at yourself in the mirror. Mirror work isn’t necessarily easy, and it may be really hard at first, but the more you do it, the stronger those thoughts become in your day-to-day.

You can say ten a day, or maybe just pick one for each day and focus your intention on that particular affirmation for the day.

I love to put them on flashcards and then choose one “at random”, even though my Spirit Guides and angels and Higher Self and what not probably have a good laugh over the idea of “randomness”.

Sometimes you may not believe your affirmations at first, since they may be contrary to the existing grooves you have in your brain.

You may want to add, “I love that ” or “The truth is” before your affirmation. For example, if your affirmation is “Money brings me freedom” but your rational mind just doesn’t quite believe it, you can say, “The truth is that money brings me freedom.”

That way, your rational, conscious mind won’t interfere with the affirmation.

Think of your daily Reiki and affirmations as “rewiring your brain”.

And since the focus is on adding Reiki to your affirmations, power them up! You can Reiki your flashcards, draw Reiki symbols on your affirmations and even imbue them with the healing Reiki energy with the Imbuement Symbol.

In my Reiki Level 2 Online Course, I attune Reiki students to the Manifestation Symbol, the Imbuement Symbol and the Long Distance Healing Symbol. Since the Long Distance Symbol heals across time, you can send Reiki into the future.

There are so many ways you can incorporate your Reiki training into your everyday life. Start your day with a little Reiki, affirmations, and visualization, and you will be amazed at how well your day just seems to flow. Ending your day with a few more affirmations so that is what your mind is mulling over while you’re asleep.

Bottom line is, you always want to remember how powerful you are. You can create the life and the world you want, and using Reiki to lend powerful healing energy to your thoughts will only help you manifest that much faster.

So, try Reiki-ing your affirmations and see for yourself how you can use your abilities and gifts to your full advantage. The healing Reiki energy and affirmations are, indeed, a winning combination.

And, of course, you can use the Five Reiki Principles as affirmations too. “Just for today, I will trust, I let go of any anger, I will be grateful, I will do my work honestly and I will be kind to every living thing.”

      Hi Sara,

      Yes, each of the three levels – Reiki I, II and III comes with its own manual, which covers everything we go over in the class. You’ll receive your manual as a PDF via email.
