COMBINING REIKI ENERGY AND SACRED DRUMMING – THE REIKI DRUM TECHNIQUE

The perfect marriage, sound and light, utilising the age old power of the drumbeat with the beautiful high frequency energy of Reiki - as a therapy, Reiki Drumming combines the strengths of lots of different healing modalities; sound healing, Reiki energy, shamanic journeying techniques, meditations, chakra balancing, affirmation work and NLP.  From my own personal observations and meditations, I believe at this point in history when we are going through so many changes on our own pathway to self growth and development, the collective unconscious is embracing the drum in all of its forms.  I have witnessed many different spiritual groups from various disciplines and religions once more turn to the heartbeat of this instrument for healing, ceremony and meditation and as a community, the Reiki community has also found the drum a powerful tool to enhance the effects of the Reiki energy. As we change our energetic makeup as a species, more and more people are becoming receptive to healing modalities which use subtle healing energies and sound, and Reiki Drum is both effective, sacred and joyous in terms of its healing attributes. 


The Reiki Drum Technique comprises three core healing methods, all different and used for separate aims.  A buffalo drum is traditionally used because of its ease of use and harmonious tone.  Treatment sessions typically last an hour.  Students and clients alike who have tried shamanic drumming before experiencing a Reiki Drum session say the higher frequency energies of the Reiki Drumming make for a more gentle, ethereal experience, albeit no less powerful on a therapeutic and healing level. 


Reiki Drum Healing involves the practitioner drumming over the client whilst focusing their intent to allow the drum’s sound waves to carry Reiki into the client’s energy field.  The drumming is followed by normal hands on Reiki.  Clients find the beat of the drum helps them switch off easier and drift into a deep state of relaxation, with all the normal benefits of a traditional Reiki treatment albeit on a much deeper level.   Clients report feeling as if the healing Reiki energy reaches deep inside their bodies. 


Reiki Drum Mental Reprogramming is a way of treating negative habits or natural tendencies, to focus the mind on something important or for achieving a goal. Drumming facilitates the energetic shift necessary to positively affect the subconscious mind. The client focuses their mind on the issue in question and repeats a positive affirmation, whilst the practitioner drums gently over them.  The drumming is again followed by Reiki for integration.   The repetitive beat of the drum helps people focus on their particular issue, reaching deep into their subconscious mind and preventing their thoughts from straying, thus reinforcing the positive messages.  The mental/emotional reprogramming technique offers its best results if the client can have a series of treatments.


The Reiki Drum Journey helps to facilitate altered consciousness for the client to access information for change in any area of their life. It can be used for healing personal issues, career concerns, relationship problems, accessing the client’s inner wisdom and tuning into spiritual guidance. It can be exceptionally empowering and healing on all levels.   Clients have many different experiences.  Some drift into a relaxed state, others see beautiful colours or feel energy pulsating through their body, and many have profound visual and auditory experiences allowing them deep personal insight.  Some fall asleep, feeling refreshed on awakening and receiving spontaneous intuitive messages over the next few days.  


Energy Healing, Shamanic Practices and Sound Healing are our birthright.  Reiki is fairly mainstream nowadays being practised in hospitals, hospices and many other institutions.  With the addition of sound and shamanic practices in the form of Reiki Drumming, we are opening up the Reiki community (and therefore the general community at large) to this birthright and bringing these practices back into the mainstream.
