There are many ways to access Reiki energy. A very old and time-tested technique for engaging the flow of Universal Energy while one is out and about performing daily activities is using the sense of hearing. The act of listening is a way of releasing the mind from the steady stream of thoughts that block subtle energy and true awareness. Listening keeps us present in the here and now and opens the doorway for energy flow.
To enter the flow of Reiki through the sense doorway of hearing one listens for the silence that surrounds and permeates the sounds in ones daily environment. Listening for silence amongst the active noises does on a surface level appear to be a crazy thing to do. Yet, what is actually happening is that the practitioner is letting down his or her mental guard that restricts energy flow from coming in.
