Reiki is said to assist in the concentration required for meditation, with the flow of energy aiding
relaxation. There are some positions that can be adopted in Reiki meditation to achieve
particular goals. In the first position the legs are drawn up and the soles of the feet
put together with the knees falling apart. This can be done while lying down or sitting
against a wall or chair. The hands adopt a praying gesture. This is meant to complete the
circuit of energy, allowing a flow around the body. The Reiki energy removes any blockages
and performed regularly, this becomes a powerful meditation exercise. It can be done for
short periods initially, just a couple of minutes, and then built up in small increases.
Group meditation is also possible with Reiki, in which the participants stand in a
circle with hands joined.
