What sequence of Reiki hand positions do you perfer?

I am a Reiki II practitioner. When I do a self treatment or a Reiki Session for someone else, I usually start from the Root or Base chakra and work my way up to the Crown chakra. This is the way I intuitively feel natural and right for me ๐Ÿ™‚ I just want to know if any of you have a different sequence/method or approach to Reiki Treatments (be that to self or to something else) ๐Ÿ™‚

Please I ask for believers of Reiki only. The reason I ask this is because I believe in Reiki and someone wasting their time to try to idk, convince me Reiki isnt real just does not make sense to me… I guess I can not stop someone from answering how ever they can, but it would be greatly appreciated if skeptics did not answer this time ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks to all (skeptics included ๐Ÿ™‚ )

Love Light and Peace ๐Ÿ™‚

So when you are freeing the energy during a treatment, you are clearing the pathway from the top down so that once the base is… Read more ยป

I have only Reiki 1 level but I also use Australian Bush Flower Essences and find that when doing Reiki and use the ABFE Emergency Essence cream on my hands the effect is better.

I do start at the Crown chakra as I was taught, but I see no reason if you intuitively wish to start at the base chakra.

Australian Bush Flower Healing by Ian White goes very well with Reiki being another energy medicine. Guess that is why I never seem to get around to doing level 2 Reiki

I have my training (attunements) in Animal Reiki 1 from Kathleen Prasad. I got the Tenihira CD and use the hand positions on that for self-heal most every night before sleeping – head, body, arms, legs and finishing with the feet. I do my channeling in animal shelters and use another CD then to cut out the noise and “static” from the activity there. That includes using Gasho and the dry bathing (which I also do before the self-heal at night.) I tend to be a “hyper” person and the CD’s have helped me greatly in learning to quiet my… Read more ยป
