I use the idea like this in a creative visualisation of a moon ball to send reiki energy, ho’oponopono, angelic help and just unconditional love to people. This is actually a light (very cool – here’s the one in the picture.)
Here’s a post about reiki from my blog scottishsiren which explains the basics of why I love Reiki.
Reiki is a fantastic way to feel good, give yourself energy and also help others (if they wish to be helped) I use it on it’s own, with Aromatherapy Massage or in in conjunction with Access Consciousness and Ho’oponopono techniques.
Energy work whether it be Reiki or otherwise, has been a lifestay for me for many years.
Daft little things when my son was little he used to suffer from tummy aches, so he’s just jump on my lap (he was 3 years old when I learnt how to practice Reiki) and ask for some energy. He would sit happily there and watch a cartoon while I gave him some reiki, 5 minutes later or less he’s jump back off and run off and play. Children respond very well to energy work/reiki.
I used to do a rota at the local playgroup and would sit in the story corner; I’ve always loved reading books to adults and children ( I enjoy reading a chapter a night for bedtime and putting on the silly voices) Both my kids are now avid readers.
At the playgroup I’d get a bunch of kids come over to listen to a story and have some quiet time, the ones that liked sitting close to me (The play leaders noticed the pattern) were always the ones who were having problems at home, the parents were arguing/divorcing/having major issues etc. These kids just needed some time out and a little energy.
It still happens now with adults, I’m a friendly person and will converse readily with most people. Supermarkets, bus stops and queues tend to do it. The person will strike up a conversation about an aspect of their life and confide in me. I then notice the energy pulling (which is totally normal) So I send some reiki or do some ho’ponopono or Access work dependent on what is needed, there and then, all this is done intuitively as I’ve been using some of these methods for a very long time.
Where I’m coming from is support this is fundamental to where I’m at. I’ve been doing this virtually my whole life. In my day job as a PA/Office Manager, working an Aromatherapist/Reiki practitioner for many years and bringing up 2 children mostly by myself.
Most people don’t understand how to manage their own energy and grab instead what they can. I can show anyone how to clear their energy, I can send them reiki, use visualisation techniques and help them to become more peaceful inside.
People who crave energy or even just because they are unhappy or low, need some assistance. I’m quite careful about how I sustain/use and take care of my own energy. I just don’t allow myself to be exhausted and caught up in the dramas of people’s lives; I listen, offer support and generally do what I can, it’s up to the person to actually receive.
Now there is a difference about taking and receiving energy, takers grab anything as they are desperate for something, people who can genuinely receive energy have more self-love as it’s conscious rather than just subconsciously taking without even understanding what they are doing. To receive support, love and energy is an act of self-love. As we all deserve it, there is so much selfishness and emotional withdrawal with most people today.
Trust and a little courage to open up and the rewards are many:
A sense of deep inner peace
Feeling good (even though things may be hectic and stressful around you)
Feeling calm and kind towards yourself and others
Best of all it makes you feel happier
Again all this energy work is also about awareness and this is where to be gentle, as when a person is stuck, depressed, upset, or angry, they aren’t truly being themselves and usually it’s not being directed at you; it’s their own internal sadness they need to deal with; sometimes all you can do is offer the support – the choice isn’t up to you. People are complicated beings with many hang ups, agendas and paranoias.
When I treat people with reiki they are much more relaxed after a reiki session, they are coming from a better, more peaceful place and are more receptive, that’s when people open up. Trusting to open up and let it happen, I’m here to facilitate that; fighting it is exhausting as so many people resist being happier as they are scared. I can also send energy remotely to help support work being done after a session (this is learnt at Reiki 2nd degree level)
My only target I set is to help people feel better about themselves and be more peaceful. KISS Principle (keep it simple, stupid – I prefer sweetheart rather than stupid!)

Illness can be a time of great stress. Reiki can help us cope by encouraging relaxation and bringing balance to both mind and emotions.
Benefits reported by Clients and Patients of our Practitioner members include deep relaxation, promoting a calm, peaceful sense of well being on all levels.
Reiki encourages and supports positive personal choices, such as improving diet, taking more exercise, devoting time for rest or leisure activities, and may reduce the need for alcohol and tobacco. Engendering greater inner harmony and balance, regular Reiki treatments promote a calmer response to life’s challenges.
Reiki’s gentle energy is easily adapted to most medical conditions and may be used safely by people of all ages, including the newborn, pregnant mothers, surgical patients, the frail and the elderly, in any situation.
Being complementary, Reiki works effectively alongside orthodox healthcare and natural remedies, expanding treatment options.
Reiki can enhance everyday living, and regular sessions may help to promote development of a healthier, more resourceful state of being.
Note: Reiki is being used in various settings including private practice, complementary therapy centres, GP surgeries, hospitals, hospices, cancer support groups, post-operative recovery, drug rehabilitation, prisons, HIV/AIDS centres, and in the care of the elderly.
Once a month I also run Reiki Shares, people who have reiki and wish to give and receive energy. Here a link to info of when the next share is.

Energy work is wonderful tool to assist anyone. I use another creative visualisation technique to help me help people, I have a Mary Poppins magic carpet bag and I find what I need to help myself and others, by asking what do I or the other person require?, it’s a fab tool one of many I have and I profoundly believe healing and loving ourselves and sorting out our own energy, taking responsibility for ourselves is the way forward and I suppose on some level I’m still 6 years old and believe in magic. How does it get any better than that?
