Meditation is a very important part of Reiki – a form of healing practice from Japan. This meditation has some benefits, according to Reiki practitioners, which includes clairvoyance (the ability to foresee things), greater ability of visualization, enhanced relaxation (improves self healing) and a greater awareness.
Through meditations your energy is balanced. This balance in your energy helps in your healing process as well as in healing others via “energy attunement”. As with any other meditation technique you aren’t supposed to force things to happen but rather to “let them flow”. This way your frustrations will go away and in return you’ll find the inner peace you’re looking. It’s like in real life – you cannot force the nature to change its course but you need to accept it anyway.
There are four major forms of Reiki meditation.
Breathing meditation – is the prelude of all the other forms. You need to breathe slowly and focus your mind to Reiki. Another form requires you to breathe normally, which somehow is opposed to the other form of breathing meditation. This form is usually used in the end of the breathing meditation as a transition from one meditative state to another.
Visualization – based meditation is another form of meditation from Reiki. The idea is to visualize the Reiki symbol or another object with your ‘third eye’ as clearly as possible. This form of meditation is done only by those practitioners who have the second degree in Reiki training. Another thing you must visualize in this meditation form is to see your goal. Reiki helps you in achieving your day to day goal, besides healing you.
Postural meditation – the third form of Reiki meditation. In this form the practitioner can obtain the meditative state using various postures. This form of meditations is mostly used as a prelude to the other Reiki meditation forms, like breathing meditation which itself is a prelude form of other types of Reiki meditation. This form of meditation may be practic ed sitti ng or even lying down. Other postures may be used as well.
Moment to moment meditation is the last form of Reiki Meditation. It requires devotion and manifest in the day to day roles of the practitioner. This is based on understanding things like avoiding worry or anger. Understanding and dispatching from these things along with devotion in one’s vocation are the keys in a moment to moment meditation form. This form requires a detached attitude from the things mentioned above. You must understand and do all these things in order to be a good Reiki practitioner.

Meetings With Remarkable Men (Part 1 of 11)
Filmed in 1979 by Peter Brook. A classic spiritual movie of GI Gurdjieff struggles beginning with his childhood until his discovery of The Fourth Way, an ancient spiritual tradition that used sacred movements as meditation. The story in this film is based on Gudjieff’s book with the same title, which is the second book of his trilogy: “All and Everything”. During his long career, director Peter Brook has conducted a wide range of theatrical experiments, pushing audiences and performers well beyond their typical experience of theater, in an effort to achieve not a temporary catharsis but a transcendent, transformative event. As the narrator of THE MAHABHARATA says, “If you listen carefully, at the end, you’ll be somebody else.” This interest in transformation that has characterized the latter part of Brook’s career continues with this adaptation of the autobiography of famed mystic GI Gurdjieff, which stars Dragan Maksimovic. Driven by a sense of unwavering dedication to unraveling the meaning of human existence, he journeys throughout the most unattainable areas of the East, encountering an array of Hindu fakirs, Buddhist monks, whirling dervishes, and gurus of every stripe. In search of enlightenment, he climbs the Himalayas, walks across the desert on stilts, and uncovers evidence of an ancient order, guards of an arcane wisdom. Most fascinating, perhaps, is the form of dance he created as a form of meditation and later taught in the West. A film that may be best …
