As a Reiki Master, you need to make a Reiki Shield daily. The purpose of the Reiki shield is primarily to protect you from absorbing any of the illnesses/negative behaviors of the persons/places that you are healing. As a surgeon, who wears a mask, gloves, and a protective jacket in surgery, you as the Reiki Master, will make a Reiki Shield. This shield will protect you from psychic attacks automatically too. Reiki Shield protects your aura. You can also make a Reiki shield for your family members, loved ones, for your home, office, vehicle, etc…
Reiki Shield is made by visualization. There are many complex ways of making a shield. I use a very easy method, which has worked for me always. Nothing is easy or difficult for the Universe or for the Universal Energy; nor does time exist in other dimensions as it does for humans in the third dimension. In the Dimension from which the Universal Energy Flows and Creates, just the intention is enough. So this is how I do it. Usually, you can first do your Chakra Balancing with the Mantras shown here on the CHAKRA CLEANSING & BALANCING CHART.
Therefore, I would already be sitting on the floor, after Balancing my Chakras. Now, to make a Reiki Shield, I put my right hand on my Heart Chakra. And left hand on top of the right. Or, if you wish you can join your hands in prayer mudra; whichever appeals to you.
GIVE THANKS: I THANK REIKI, THE UNIVERSE, MY PARENTS & TEACHERS, AND MYSELF (INSERT YOUR NAME).
AND MY INTENTION IS: I CALL UPON THE POWER AND WISDOM OF REIKI TO MAKE A STRONG SHIELD AROUND MY AURA THAT PROTECTS ME AND ENERGIZES ME ALWAYS. THANK YOU REIKI, THANK YOU UNIVERSE.
Now, visualize a point of powerful white light at the center of your Heart Center, expanding outwards in a sphere. Make this sphere as big or as small as you would like. You are the creator here. As a warrior chooses his/her shield when going out to the battlefield, so should you choose how big or small you wish your Aura Shield to be. You can set a time for yourself 3 to 5 minutes, for daily Shield.
After 3 Minutes of Reiki flowing in, say BLESS AND DISMISS. This is to dismiss the Powers assisting you.
Some days, when I sit down to send Reiki to planet Earth and its suffering, then I would make an 11 minutes shield because I am very sensitive to absorbing pain and suffering. So intuition is always your best guide! Practice making your Shield, and initially do it daily; they say the Energy Shield made once, lasts 24 hours. But, as you progress, your intuition will guide you on how often you must make your Reiki Shield. Enjoy your Journey, Spiritual Warrior…
