To make your guests feel more welcome and keep your home clean of ‘outside’ energies at the same time, REIKI YOUR WELCOME MAT!
This is particularly important for me since I work much of the time, out of my home. My kids live here, my pets live here, I LIVE HERE! I want to keep the yucky stuff OUT of my house. This process helps.
Before a class or workshop, I put Reiki II symbols into my welcome mat on the front porch to bless each person coming in (CKR), cleanse off the old energy guests might bring in (SHK) and to help them to calm their mind and leave their stress and emotional issues outside (also SHK). It helps everyone inside to have a better time, whether it’s a party, a Reiki circle or class, or friends coming over for a play date. The energy is all calmer, happier and feels better if Reiki helps them leave their issues at the door.
COME ON IN
Then I put Reiki II symbols in the welcome mat on the inside of the door for energizing energies (CKR) coming into the home for excitement of a Diving kind. This helps to raise the vibration of the energy coming into the room. I put the Mental/Emotional Symbol (SHK) on the mat for a calming and loving feel in the room. If the person’s Higher Self doesn’t want the Reiki on the mats they don’t have to take it, so we are not infringing on their boundaries. It’s all in the intention when we place the symbols in the mats and we are putting Reiki into the mat, not into the person. Either way, the space around each person is still clean and clear, safe and sacred from the Reiki, helping to lift the vibration in the space which helps to lift the moods of everyone who comes into the space. It’s a win/win and you all know I like those win/win situations.
Noticing a Difference
I’ve started this as a regular part of setting space before a class or circle and people say they have noticed a difference. In one class I had one of the students comment that she was really stressed before she came. But as soon as she got into my house, she felt much better and had a great time in class. She was worried before she came that she wouldn’t be able to leave her ‘stuff’ outside. When I told her what I do with the welcome mat, she really felt the Reiki Welcome Mat helped with this. I did too.
