Energy Technique Toolbox: Tip 6


When doing Reiki, there are times that an energetic blockage can be really locked into the body and it is helpful to utilize a few additional techniques during the treatment process which helps move the blockages along. This is especially true if while giving Reiki to an area that has shown an energetic restriction, the energy seems difficult to move, is feeling very concentrated or is taking a long time to drain out or release. These techniques will assist in breaking up the energy patterns holding the blockage in place.

These techniques come by a variety of names, depending on which modality is being utilized or who has taught the techniques. But regardless of the name that the technique is being labeled, the important thing when using them while doing Reiki, is remain a clear and open channel and not to become attached to the process or the results.

This is a simple, effective two-handed method for removing blocked energy.

1. Place your hands palms down, with the tips of your pointer fingers touching and your thumbnails overlapping. Your hands, especially the open area between them, form the shape of a triangle.

2. Form the triangle directly on or 2-6 inches above the area to be worked on. When working above the body, you are moving into other areas of the aura of the body…the etheric double, the emotional, the mental, the spiritual.

3. Visualize and feel the Reiki energy as well as healing colors coming from the palms of your hands and your fingers, penetrating directly into the area you are working on.

4. As the Reiki energy penetrates the area, visualize the energy blockage breaking up. See and feel this blockage being pushed up and out through the center of the triangle and being released and immediately transmuted.

5. It is also beneficial when you have the person receiving the treatment participate in the visualization process. The more actively engaged in the process the person is while receiving the treatment, the more they will benefit. This active engagement can take on many different forms, use the one that works best for you and the person receiving the Reiki.

The triangle is a sacred and powerful symbol. For me, it feels intuitively natural to use during a Reiki session and was a technique I began using as just that.. through intuitive inspiration, before I began reading and learning about its application in other areas.

Let’s take a look at the triangle as a symbol. A symbol can be defined as a means of communication that goes beyond the ability of expressed language- written or spoken. It is something that is felt, and it is felt on a number of different levels, invoking a variety of feelings and emotions. Each response to a symbol is highly individualistic—based on our experiences, perceptions, background, culture. etc.

So keeping this in mind—read through some of the interpretations I have gathered from different resources regarding the triangle,some,none,or all may resonate with you. What we are trying to explore here is the metaphysical meaning the triangle has for you personally.

Triangle: The triangle is the strongest geometric form. It cannot collapse unless one of it's joints give out. The triangle can be used to represent the 4 basic elements:earth, air, fire. and water.

The Triangle: represents the active principle and is often used as a symbol of fire. It's energy is dynamic and it creates change, moves forcibly and with power.

The Triangle: associated with the number three. Pointing upwards, it symbolizes fire,male power and counterfeit view of God. To Christians, it often represents the Trinity. Pointing down, it symbolizes water, female sexuality, goddess religions and homosexuality.

The Triangle: is a symbol of manifestation. It will amplify anything put into it. Triangles have an effect on anything inside them. In the 1970's triangle shapes were used to preserve milk and other food without refrigeration. I do not recommend anyone doing that as the technology is more complicated than I am explaining here and one might get ill if they try that, but commercially it was done. I know with my own experiments with pyramid shapes, I mummified meat in 3 days with just a simple, basic pyramid. My grandfathers' razor blades (before the days of Bic throwaways) lasted for one year when stored in a pyramid. As you can see the triangle amplifies the energy in a unique way.

The Triangle: The three is symbolic of multiplicity: creative power, growth and the forward movement overcoming duality. In the Tao three is the central number of equilibrium.

The Triangle: is a mystical symbol. The pyramids of ancient Egypt are built in this shape. A triangle has three equal sides, and the number 3 may be regarded as a symbol of completion. The number 3 appears throughout history in many cultures and religions. There are, for example, the three worlds or three levels of consciousness:consciousness, unconsciousness, and cosmic consciousness. Western psychology may define these same three worlds as the ego, the shadow and the self.

The Triangle: In Christianity the number 3 is exemplified by way of the Holy Trinity. This concept suggests that three apparent gods are, in fact, one and the same. This would seem, once again, to be our eternal triad of body, mind and spirit. God the Son is the body, God the Father is the mind, and God the Holy Ghost is the spirit. These constitute the whole person.

The Triangle: Manifestation of the spirit in the body as the life force, the need of spirit to extend itself through creative expression, and true expression of spirit, which comes when we realize we are spirit.

The Triangle: This sign holds the power of integration through the trinity: of body, mind, and spirit; of mother, father, and child; of past, present, and future;of the Holy Trinity. Represents time of integration in life. It also embodies the power of the pyramids. It is an active symbol of spirit and aspiring to higher realms. Two triangles- one in the normal position and one inverted and superimposed on the first-form a six-pointed star, called Solomon’s Seal,that is a symbol for the human soul. The triangle also has the power of protection. This sign says, you are safe and you are being protected.

The Triangle: carries the theme of self-discovery and revelation, the shape stands for goals, visions, and dreams. It is the universal shape associated with the attainment of desired goals, and with the ability to envision new possibilities.
