Reiki (ray-key) is a Japanese method of activating and focusing healing energy in one’s self and others. It was first introduced with its attunements, symbols and hand positions by Dr. Mikao Usui in the 19th century. Ultimately, Reiki made its debut in the United States in the 20th century by Hawayo Takata, who practiced and taught Reiki in Hawaii and the mainland of the U.S. for decades before her death in 1980.

The Law of Attraction is a Universal principle which expresses in everyday life how we attract experiences – negative and positive – into our lives via our thoughts, feelings, and actions. The Law of Attraction works hand-in-hand with other Universal laws, such as the Law of Cause and Effect and the Law of Abundance.
If we take a few moments to review our lives, even the most recent events, we can clearly see that like attracts like, whether it’s reflected in the people in our lives, our experiences within our careers, and everyday activities and experiences.
One can’t help but wonder if Reiki can be partnered with the Law of Attraction. Absolutely! In the following paragraphs, we’ll review a few ways we can use Reiki and the Law of Attraction together to provide that necessary boost in our efforts to create the life we want and deserve to experience.
First, let’s look at the use of affirmations as a method of attracting positive experiences into our lives. This is a very popular practice. If you are a Reiki healer, write down your positive affirmations that you use on a regular basis or new ones that you’d like to try. Write them on a piece of paper or in your journal. Then, you can activate the healing energy in your own special way that you’ve developed during your practice or just concentrate on activating the energy to be used for the purpose of increasing the energy of your positive affirmations. Lay your hands on the paper with your affirmations listed and let the healing energy flow to those affirmations for at least ten minutes. If you are not a Reiki healer, place your hands in prayer position at your heart center (middle of your chest) and say three times, “I experience the blessings of my affirmations.” Then, place your hands on your piece of paper with the affirmations listed and leave them there thinking of the statement just expressed for at least ten minutes.
The second method of combining Reiki and the Law of Attraction is to seat in a comfortable position on the floor or on a chair. If you are a Reiki healer, you can now activate your hands in your own special way or you can write the Power symbol (Cho-Ku-Rei) into your palms with your finger. Place one hand on top of your head (the mind) and one hand on the middle of your chest (the heart) to allow the healing energy to flow. While you are doing this portion of this method, begin to visualize a positive experience you’d like to have, such as getting a good paying job, making new friends, or expressing your creativity in a different way. See it already happening in your mind and feel the happiness in your heart of experiencing this amazing blessing. You can do this for at least five minutes. If you are not a Reiki healer, you can do the same steps, with the exception of the Power symbol. Simply say, “I experience the blessings of my visualization” three or more times and follow the other steps.
A third method of combining Reiki and the Law of Attraction is sending healing energy and love to other people for their highest good to come to them. Anytime you send love to other people for their lives to be better, the Universe will always send that same love back to your life as well.
