I want to do self-Reiki for fear. I was told in Level 1 not to focus on the symptoms and let Reiki do its thing. But can I set specific intentions before doing a session, including for fear?
Yes, you absolutely can do self-Reiki for fear. I might also encourage you to consider exploring the root of your fear and sending Reiki to that, as well, in addition to sending generally to fear. I actually have an episode of my Build Your Reiki Business podcast on fear that talks more about this. Listen on iHeart Radio or YouTube. Of course, it's geared toward fear in Reiki business, but has helpful tips for any kind of fear we might experience.
As far as the intention, it's true that Reiki goes where it's needed and wanted for the highest good of all and we could therefore say that intention setting isn't necessary. And we also know that intention setting is a powerful practice. It's not for Reiki: it's for us. Reiki knows what it's doing and where to go, but intention setting helps us in our Reiki practice and in our lives.
So we can set the intention for Reiki to help us with fear. Of course, Reiki will go where it's needed and wanted for the highest good of all, and Reiki knows what it's doing and where to go, but just setting the intention to decrease fear will help us to feel more calm and empowered. Please feel free to reach out with any questions and blessings to your fear!
