Reiki music is important and can be a great accompaniment to a Reiki session, as it allows not only the person receiving the relaxation, but also the donor to focus on the session.
Why is music an important element when practicing Reiki?
Reiki is a unique treatment, where the “donor” channels the universal energy to transmit it to the “receiver”. In a “classic” Reiki session, the “donor” will place his hands on specific points of the “receiver”, staying about 3 minutes on each position. There are meditative music specifically designed for Reiki, where sounds of nature are punctuated every 3 minutes by a bell. This rhythm allows the person who sends the energy to know when to change position. Indeed, when we start Reiki, we can tend to focus on time instead of focusing on the feelings and channeling energy. Thanks to the sound of the bell every 3 minutes, the donor can concentrate entirely on his care.
Which music to choose?
If everyone has their own musical preferences, we must obviously choose a relaxing music. Thus, for a meditation session or yoga, we will choose calm, harmonious music. The sounds of nature also help in the relaxation and the reception of the care: cascade flow, songs of birds, rustling of the wind, lapping waves. Favourite instruments for a Reiki sessions are the piano, the cello, the guitar, the Asian flute or the Tibetan bowl.
The Tibetan bowl – a therapeutic instrument
The Tibetan Bowl, also called the Singing Bowl, is an instrument traditionally used by Buddhist schools in prayer and meditation sessions. Its dates back to the Bronze Age.
This instrument has the particularity of being endowed with an almost hypnotic tone, which makes it a precise aid for relaxation. Its manufacture is an alloy of seven different metals, each related to one of the seven chakras, which would give it therapeutic virtues.
