Joshin Kokyu-- breathing method to cleanse the spirit
Raise your arms over your head to connect with Reiki. The vibrational energy will begin to flow throughout your body. Whlist feeling the energy flowing put down your arms and put your hands on your lap, palms up. Relax shoulders and concentrate on your Tanden (four finger below your navel, and two fingers deeper inside). Take a deep breath and relax.
While inhaling feel how the Reiki energy enters into the crown chakra to the Tanden. The light that fills the Tanden spreads throughout the body by dissolving tensions and relaxing around the body.
While exhaling, let the light that fills the body pass through the skin, bringing harmony around you. As youinhale light comes through the crown chakra, and as you exhale let Reiki passes through the body. Continue at your own pace a few times, synchronizing the breath.
