How to Use your Intuition to Practice Reiki

How to Use your Intuition to Practice Reiki

Over the previous few weeks, as I've been sharing some powerful insights about Reiki healing, you will have noticed I mention your intuition a lot.  There is a reason for that!  Your intuition is a powerful part of Reiki healing and a super important piece on the topic of making healing your own, as no one, NO ONE will ever receive and work with energy in exactly the same way as you, that's what makes your approach to Reiki healing so special!

I am an online Intuitive Life and Business Coach-I love supporting women who are empaths, intuitives, healers, holistic therapists and coaches to fulfil their soul's purpose with unstoppable confidence and ease.  By embracing all your superpowers, strengths and vulnerabilities and by clearing out the subconscious and energy obstacles that are in your way around your incredible abilities, you go on to make more money, have incredible success and maintain your energy levels and health.

What is intuition anyway?

Intuition is the ability to understand something instinctively, without the need for conscious reasoning.  A thing that one knows or considers likely from instinctive feeling rather than conscious reasoning.  Over in my online community, I asked everyone what intuition meant to them, here's some of what they said:

  • A gut feeling

  • Hunches

  • An inner knowing

  • Sensing something rather than knowing

  • Feeling rather than facts

  • Feeling guided

As you practice Reiki, you will notice that other things start to happen for you as you work on yourself or someone/something.  Things like a sensation in your body, an image in your mind's eye, an emotion, for example.  

When you realise that this is your intuition communication you so that you can support yourself or another in the best and highest way possible, using your intuition to practice Reiki healing becomes even more powerful than it is already!

Acknowledging and building trust with your intuition is the starting point on your intuitive Reiki journey-the opportunity to offer your clients (and yourself!) intuitive insight into what you notice during Reiki healing sessions is a reassuring, insightful addition to any healing relationship.

Intuition can come in many forms, generally connecting with us in our human bodies via our sesnses.

I believe your intuition can kick in in two ways; direct guidance, messages and metaphors.

  • Sight: Images, faces, animals, scenes, rooms, spaces, places, shapes, sacred geometry-I’m very visual, so I see lots of things intuitively when I’m working with energy and coaching people.

  • Sound: voices, songs, tones, words-i remember having a recurring back pain a few years ago, before I was consciously on my mind body spirit journey and aware of my intuitive gifts and this pain, I couldn’t shake off, no matter how much I was stretching, strengthening, energetically releasing-in dream I was woken up with the word MULIFIDUS-which is a muscle that supports the spine. As I started to work with that in many ways, my back pain eased dramatically and rapidly.

  • Emotions: You may become aware of the emotions of another that you are feeling yourself, or that the emotions you feel are a metaphor for the message you are receiving intuitively.

  • Colours: Any colours, in front of your eyes, or around you, in your body etc. There is a general rule of thumb around colours and chakras etc, but I encourage you to explore them and the meanings for you individually when you receive these intuitively.

  • Touch: You may get a strong sense when you touch someone or something of what that means or feels like, goosebumps, chills, warmth, cold, a shiver!

  • Guides: You may access and connect with angels, guides, spirit guides, animal guides, loved ones.

  • Healings: You may receive ideas/experience healings and activations that you benefit from and then go on to take others through.

One of the most powerful things for me in identifying and activating my own intuition and intuitive gifts was becoming attuned to Reiki energy-once I was attuned, I realised that I was already using energy to help others, but Reiki really allowed me to build trust, connection and understanding which has opened up a whole world of identifying my intuitive gifts.
