Reiki Psalms by Brett Bevell | Omega

Brett Bevell shares Reiki psalms that can help you develop a deeper sense of communion with the divine.

A psalm is a sacred song or hymn, and although often attributed to the Bible there are psalms in other spiritual traditions as well. The Reiki psalms below are intended to elicit a deeper sense of communion with the divine. They function similarly to Reiki affirmations, but are deeper energetically and more eloquent. Simply reading a Reiki psalm engages you with the energetic Reiki blessing contained inside of each psalm, though speaking each out loud will engage you with an even deeper layer of the Reiki blessing. Reiki psalms are intended not as a replacement for your own spiritual tradition, but to help access a deeper energetic form of the divine grace that Reiki is.


Reiki Psalm 1

Bless the world as seen through my eyes

And teach me to listen

Inside every hour is a universe

a place of time

from which I can neither escape nor move

but must wade slowly

captured by grace

exhalted to witness that which is beyond my comprehension

I expand eternally with each breath

Yet cannot know what it means to be limitless without end

except in this moment


Reiki Psalm 2

When light becomes word

and word becomes joy

there I am deeply immersed in divine grace

allowing it to surround my ego

dissolving the me that I was never born to become

but only meant to awaken


Reiki Psalm 3

My wounded heart wishes to be whole

and filled with prophecy of times unlearned

where the gift of love is boundless

and all in every direction is praise for the mad glory of existence

There I will see that which is the cure to my ailment

There will I be held and nourished with infinite light

There will I know who I am beyond the self I have imagined myself to be


Reiki Psalm 4

Protect me from the angry words of others

And take away all my suffering

Bring peace to my ears

Bring peace to my eyes

Bring peace to my thought

So that I may be reborn into light

So that each whisper of divine word

is one I can capture and taste

Let me consume this light

and also be consumed by it

Let me ravish the flesh of this light

and be ravished within it

Let me shout love for all beings

and see that love reflected back to me

as it is simultaneously then sent back to them as well

Let me know who I came into this world to be
