The reason I like to practice Reiki using essential oils is because I feel that the aroma and energy of essential oils helps me to quiet the chatter in my mind and just tune into feeling. Here’s my method for using essential oils for this purpose:
Place 1 drop of essential oil on your heart center, at the center of the breastbone and gently rub it in. Place 1-3 drops of essential oil in the palm of your hands and rub your hands together.
Sit in a comfortable position take 3 deep breaths, letting the shoulders relax and letting the breath and aroma infuse every cell with your willingness to let healing occur. When you feel ready, bring your hands together in prayer pose in front of the heart have your eyes about 1/10 open with your gaze focused about 3 feet in front of you.
Keeping your breath long and light, place your attention at each of the following energy centers consecutively until you feel energy there, then move your awareness to the next location. Keeping your eyes 1/10 open and gazing at a place about 3 feet in front of you, bring your awareness to the crown of the head until you feel energy there then move your awareness at the third eye and feel the energy then move your awareness to the throat then to the heart then the palms of the hands.
At this point you may place your hands over the heart chakra at the center of the sternum and feel how the energy flows easily through all of these chakras. When youre ready, bring your hands back into prayer pose, and go consciously enjoy your day. Aloha!!
