I know this is a bit on the "new agey" side, but you'll have to save judgment until you've tried it! And to make it more to your liking, then bring in the Divine Energies of your choice; God, Jesus, Mary, the Saints, the Gods, and/or Goddesses. It doesn't matter. All that matters is that the Divine Spirit's Energies are called upon to aid you in your healing & works.
One of the pages I "like" on Facebook introduced this concept after they found it listed elsewhere online. So I tried it with the fractal they had and was very surprised at the level of relaxation I was able to receive in just that short amount of time. I have always sucked at meditation, but I think that this method is definitely something I can do and thus reap the benefits of 1) meditation, 2) Reiki/energy healing, and 3) general well-being.
So, it goes like this:
Find a fractal in the images on a search engine. The FB page admin preferred triangles due to their high level of energy that emits from them. I agree, but for me, triangles are not pleasing to look at. I do not like their angularity. I like curves. So, I looked through the spiral fractal designs and found more than I could ever begin to use!
I like spirals because they are the symbol of the 5th Element, Spirit, and means "coming into being".
Spirals that turn clockwise (from center outward) are Spirit descending into Man.
Spirals that turn counter-clockwise (from center outward) are Man ascending into Spirit.
Here are some of the Spiral Fractals I found. Most that I found were the clockwise Spirals, far fewer were the counter-clockwise Spirals.
If I am going to do a Reiki healing, then a clockwise, Spirit descending to Man Spiral would be best. I would also probably use a purple/lavender or gold colored one as well, as purple/lavender is the color of Spirit, and gold is the color of the healing Sun. Here's one I found that has both colors, looks like a galaxy with a Sun in the center. Perfect!
