Searching for advanced Reiki techniques for spiritual healing?

You’ve come to the right place.

As a seasoned Reiki practitioner, I’ve honed a variety of techniques that transcend basic practices.

Reiki is more than just a healing method. It’s a spiritual journey that connects you deeply with your true self and the universe.

But to truly harness its power, you need advanced techniques that can elevate your practice.

In this article, we’ll delve into 6 robust techniques sure to deepen your spiritual healing process. Each technique is designed to help you unleash the full potential of Reiki and bring about profound transformations in all aspects of your life.

1. Mastering the Master Symbol

The Master Symbol, also known as Dai Ko Myo, is a cornerstone of advanced Reiki.

It’s considered the most powerful symbol in Reiki, often used only by Reiki masters.

This symbol represents enlightenment and helps unlock the full potential of your Reiki energy.

Interestingly, the Dai Ko Myo symbol is typically introduced during the third level of Reiki training, also known as the Master level.

So, how to incorporate the Master Symbol into your practice?

For this, you should visualize the symbol and chant its name 3 times during your meditation.

This process can significantly enhance your healing abilities and deepen your connection to the universal life force.

Here’s how to use the Master Symbol:

  • Begin your meditation as usual, focusing on your breath and grounding your energy.
  • Visualize the master symbol in your mind’s eye. If you’re not familiar with it, take some time to study and memorize its shape before starting.
  • As you visualize the symbol, chant “Dai Ko Myo” three times. Do this slowly, allowing the vibrations of this chant to resonate within you.
  • Continue with your usual Reiki practice, but keep the image of the Master Symbol in your mind throughout.

This technique can open new avenues for spiritual healing, helping you to tap into deeper levels of consciousness and spiritual enlightenment.

2. Distance Healing

Distance healing, or Enkaku Chiryo in Japanese, is another advanced Reiki technique that enables you to send healing energy across space and time.

This technique transcends the physical barriers and allows you to connect with people far away, or even with your past or future selves.

In distance healing, you use the Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen symbol, which represents distance in Reiki.

The main concept here is that energy is not confined by physical space. You can send positive, healing energy to anyone, anywhere, at any time.

To practice distance healing:

  • Start your meditation as usual with grounding and centering yourself.
  • Visualize the person or situation you wish to send healing to.
  • Draw the Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen symbol in the air with your finger or visualize it in your mind.
  •  Concentrate on the symbol and say its name three times.
  • Send your Reiki energy to the person or situation, intending it to heal and balance.

This technique can be a powerful tool in your spiritual healing arsenal. Most importantly, it will help you to extend your help and healing beyond your immediate surroundings.

3. Aura Clearing

Did you know that aura clearing is also known as psychic surgery?

It’s a technique used to remove negative energies or blockages from the aura.

This advanced Reiki technique involves using your hands to sweep away the energy debris, promoting a healthier energy flow within the body.

Aura clearing works on the belief that illnesses and ailments first manifest in the energy field before they do in the physical body.

By clearing these energetic obstructions, you can potentially prevent physical illnesses and enhance overall well-being.

Now, here’s a quick guide to practice aura clearing:

  • Begin your Reiki meditation as usual, grounding yourself and opening up to the universal life force.
  • Visualize the person’s aura you want to clear. It can be your own or someone else’s.
  • Using your hands, gently sweep through the aura from head to toe, intending to remove any negative energies or blockages.
  • As you do this, visualize any energetic debris being swept away and dissolved in white light.
  • Once you feel the aura is clear, seal it with the Power symbol (Cho Ku Rei) to strengthen and protect it.

Aura clearing can be a potent tool for maintaining spiritual hygiene, leading to better health and a greater sense of balance and peace.

4. Chakra Balancing

This one is indeed my favorite among all the advanced Reiki practices that I’ve tried.

At least, it’s the most effective for me. Let me break it down:

Chakra balancing is a crucial part of advanced Reiki practice. It involves aligning and harmonizing the seven main chakras, or energy centers, within our bodies.

When our chakras are balanced, energy can flow freely, contributing to physical, mental, and spiritual well-being.

Each chakra corresponds to different aspects of our lives. By focusing your Reiki healing on specific chakras, you can address particular issues or imbalances.

Here’s a basic guide to balancing your chakras:

  • Begin your Reiki meditation, grounding yourself and opening up to the universal energy.
  • Starting from the root chakra at the base of your spine, visualize each chakra one by one, moving up to the crown chakra at the top of your head.
  • For each chakra, visualize its corresponding color glowing brightly (red for the root chakra, orange for the sacral chakra, yellow for the solar plexus, green for the heart chakra, blue for the throat chakra, indigo for the third eye, and violet for the crown chakra).
  • As you visualize each chakra, intend for it to be clear and balanced. If you sense any blockages or imbalances, send additional Reiki energy to that area.
  • Once you’ve worked through all the chakras, finish by visualizing a protective white light surrounding you.

But I’ve also dedicated a more in-depth guide to chakra balancing for anyone who wants to understand the Taoist philosophy of this practice.

5. Crystal Healing

The next powerful method to amplify your Reiki energy is crystal healing.

Each crystal has its unique vibrational frequency that resonates with the body’s energy centers, thereby promoting healing and balance.

In advanced Reiki, practitioners often use crystals to enhance their healing sessions.

Some of the most commonly used crystals in Reiki include clear quartz for amplification, amethyst for spiritual growth, and rose quartz for love and harmony.

To incorporate crystal healing in your Reiki practice:

  • Start by choosing a crystal that resonates with your healing intention.
  • Cleanse the crystal before use to clear it of any previous energies. You can do this by holding it under running water or smudging it with sage.
  • uring your Reiki session, place the crystal on or near the body part or chakra you want to heal.
  • Allow the crystal’s energy to work in tandem with the Reiki energy to bring about healing and balance.

The combination of Reiki and crystal healing can lead to amplified results, making it a valuable technique in your spiritual healing toolkit.

6. Reiki Box Healing

Finally, let me introduce Reiki box healing — an advanced technique that allows you to send Reiki energy to multiple people, situations, or intentions at once.

The idea is to place names or symbols representing your healing intentions inside a box and then send Reiki energy to the entire box.

This method is particularly useful when you have multiple healing intentions and not enough time to send Reiki to each one individually.

Here’s how to do it:

  • Find a small box that resonates with you. It can be made of any material, but many Reiki practitioners prefer natural materials like wood or stone.
  • Write your intentions on small pieces of paper and place them in the box. These can be names of people you wish to heal, symbols representing specific situations, or even words denoting qualities you wish to cultivate, like “peace” or “confidence.”
  • Seal the box and hold it in your hands as you would during a traditional Reiki session.
  • Send Reiki energy to the box with the intention that the energy will reach all the intentions inside.

Reiki box healing is a practical and efficient way of sending healing energy when time is limited. It allows you to extend your healing reach without compromising the quality of your practice.

Embracing Reiki in Everyday Life

Practicing advanced Reiki techniques can significantly enhance your spiritual healing journey.

But to truly harness the transformative power of Reiki, it’s essential to incorporate its principles into your everyday life.

Note that mindfulness is a key component of Reiki.

By being fully present in each moment, you can channel the universal life force energy more effectively, whether you’re in a formal Reiki session or going about your daily activities.

In essence, advanced Reiki is about cultivating a lifestyle that embodies the principles of balance, harmony, and healing.

As you continue this journey, remember to stay open, patient, and consistent. Spiritual healing is a lifelong journey, not a destination.
