During the therapy session of Reiki, music (which is part of effective Reiki therapy tools) often helps to soothe the person and help them to relax, and there is an abundance of music to choose from. There are two main objectives to the music. One of them is to help to shift the environment to a much more relaxed one, it helps to put the receiver in the mood and it helps them to focus on something to still the mind.
Now, this is quite important, as what the Reiki traditionalist used to do when this Japanese art form first came about was that they used to hum to their patients, and this would often cause them to lower themselves into a state of relaxation which would help with the therapy process. Now, you do not have to master the art of humming, and quite often, it can be quite distracting if not done properly. The other objective of Reiki music as part of the plethora of Reiki effective therapy tools is that it helps one attune oneself with the various energies that need to be used to help the receiver. Read up on some Reiki books, they will tell you.
The actual music can actually vary from anything. As a stimulant, it is really up to the designer of the music for one to actually form an environment that one thinks is suitable for Reiki. One of the believes of Reiki is that the universe is always in motion, and it has a rhythm of its own. Reiki music is designed to be at one with the universe, to follow its ebb and flow in such a way as to enhance it within human ears and cause us to slowly recede into a state of attunement and relaxation. Often, more than one kind of instruments are brought into the mix to create a tune that is one with the energies.
When we are talking about the music of the universe, it can be from anything like the rustling of the leaves, to the sound of water hitting a break, to the rocks, to the wind, to anything really. Making sense of these sounds is one of the key areas which Reiki music creators try to attune themselves to and translate that into paper. There is no one set of instruments, in fact, one can use anything that creates a sound and melody to resemble the elements.
All in all, once you get a blend of pleasant and tones that are soothing, then you have achieved the first step to creating Reiki music. Choosing from the range of libraries out there is not difficult, just pick the music that you most respond to or your patients respond to. In the end of the day, that is the best way to successfully pick music that works. The great thing about this is that there is a huge selection of music out there, and for Reiki, there are recommendations and playlists that you can get and use as your own during therapy sessions and aid receivers focus, relax and heal. Add a good and stable Reiki table, and you have a great environment for therapy.
