Scanning and Beaming are two techniques that were developed at the Center in 1990. (Scanning was developed in 1991 before the Japanese Reiki Technique called Byosen scanning was discovered in the West and is very similar to Byosen scanning which is now used by the Center). They are based on dynamics exhibited by Reiki that were not being fully utilized at the time. They extend the effectiveness of a Reiki treatment, increasing awareness of where to treat and focus healing in the aura where the cause of illness if found.
At the Center, we have developed a powerful method of channeling Reiki energy called Beaming. Using the distant healing symbol it is possible to beam Reiki to your client from across the room. This can dramatically increase the amount of Reiki flowing through you to the client. Beaming also creates a unique healing process of treating the whole aura at once. After treating the aura, the Reiki energy will enter the physical body and treat areas that need it.
It is also possible to beam Reiki directly to a specific area. Just imagine your hands are like radar dishes focusing Reiki on the area you want to treat. You can also direct it with your eyes.
Beaming works better if you allow your consciousness to merge with the Reiki consciousness. Simply be aware of the Reiki energy as it flows through you. Focus your mind only on the Reiki. If other thoughts come into your mind, gently brush them away and bring your attention back to the Reiki. By doing this, you will enter an altered state that allows the energy pathways Reiki flows through to open more than normal. It also allows your Reiki guides to more easily add their Reiki to yours. Beaming can be done at the end of a standard treatment or it can be done by itself.
