World Peace Project and Card Meditation
One of the most intriguing aspects of Reiki is the ability to send Reiki energy through time and space. This process is called Distance Reiki. One of my favorite examples of using Distance Reiki is the World Peace Project.
No, this isn't some kind of Miss Congeniality gimmick. It's an honest attempt to interact with Mother Earth to make a real difference.
So how does this work? In a nutshell, a series of crystal grids have been placed around the globe: at the north and south poles, in Jerusalem, Hawaii and the US Midwest. The placement of these grids allow interaction with the Earth's magnetic field - at least that is the intention - with the north and south poles acting as the Earth's crown and root chakras.
More importantly (in my opinion), with the physical placement of these grids in place, participants are able to focus Reiki with their noblest intent.
Each month on the 3rd Wednesday, participants are asked to send Distance Reiki to the grids at a specific time - 7:30pm local time in their time zone. This creates a 24 hour cascading impulse of Reiki energy to surround the Earth. A very helpful resource has been created consisting of World Peace Cards (available here
). With these cards, Reiki practitioners have a physical item to focus on while sending Distance Reiki.
Does it work? Of course it does. Though it may not manifest exactly as we'd like for our conscious mind. The effort is well worth doing and I highly recommend participating in this effort - whether a Reiki practitioner or not. (if you are not a Reiki practitioner, simply calm your mind and think peaceful thoughts at the prescribed time - it will help the effort and yourself at the same time).
