Self Care Reiki style

Mrs Takata encouraged her students to practice "Reiki for the self first!" before treating others. She taught a simple self treatment pattern, and encouraged them to receive Reiki as well.

When we're new students, we are excited and inspired to practice self Reiki daily, but as time passes, we may fall away. When's the last time you did a self-Reiki
session, or received Reiki? Lineage head Phyllis Furomoto recommends receiving Reiki weekly throughout the year, and for a block of days each month... 

I receive regular bodywork sessions with a co-worker who is also a Reiki practitioner, but receiving a full Reiki session is rare. 

I recently received an invitation to the #30daysofselfcarechallenge on Instagram, and immediately thought of Reiki! 

I often practice self-Reiki when I awaken, as part of the Miracle Hour process: Silence (Self Reiki), Affirmation (Reiki principles), Visualization (M/E), Exercise (Qigong or a walk), Read (uplifting), and Scribe (journal) 

I don't do the full process each day, but generally practice at least a few minutes of self-Reiki, journal and movement. A favourite evening option is one I learned in my own first degree class with Analyse, one hand on my belly, the other on my heart as I fall asleep. It's so simple, sweet and comforting. Another option is arms crossed, with your hands on opposite shoulders. This balances all the meridians, and a minor chakra on the arms is above the heart! 

What self care will you include today? 


  1. Thank you for the reminder! I've gone through Levels I and II and hope to finish out my reiki training this year or early next. I could definitely use a little reiki on myself lately.

      am from canada, would want to tell you all that i was able to put an end to my divorce issue and restore my marriage again, because i never wanted it to happen. i don’t know what came over my husband that he was filling for divorce, i tried to talk him out of it when he told me and he didn’t listen to me, i had no other option than to seek for the help of a spell caster and now am glad i did. Because if not for the help of spell, i don’t know what would have become of me by now because i loved my husband so much that i couldn’t stand loosing him. The spell worked like magic with the way and manner my husband change and started showing love instead of the divorce he was planning. i just too happy that everything is in place for me now. I would gladly recommend the use of spell to any one going through marriage problems and want to put an end to it. [ , or whatsapp : +2349066410185 was were i got the help to restore my marriage]
