Like a broken record, I have been known to drone on and on about the importance of self-treatments in Reiki, ‘You can’t help others unless you help yourself first’, ‘if your energy is low, you can’t heal others’ blah blah as people’s eyes glaze over and doggy nodding begins its automatic response. Luckily I’ve been vindicated with a recent question – answer – result from the lovely Angela…thank you!

One of the more surprising aspects of the Reiki Survey was the significant improvement in benefits perceived by the higher levels of training. This was something I was not expecting when I ran the report though with reflection it certainly makes sense. Level 2 is a quantum leap in many ways as it takes self-healing to a higher and more deliberate level. At the most basic level with Reiki we Read More Why do Advance Level Usui Reiki?
….Reiki is NOT a belief system!!!!!
The unfortunate consequence of Reiki having no intrinsic philosophy or rhetoric is it opens the doors to immense misunderstanding. When it goes into a culture of a country it morphs to suit the country. This is absolutely fine and practical in order to open people to coming to learn Reiki, it can often be helpful to ‘tweak’ the story. The first known ‘tweak’ came Read More Reiki and the Rhetoric of Reiki
I have recently completed my Reiki Level 1 and have been doing Reiki healing for a week on my daughter. I do the 12 position healing for 2.5 mins on each position. It has done wonders for her! But For the first 4 days she fell into a deep sleep before I finished the 12 positions. The last few days however it takes her awhile to settle and fall Read More My daughter is more agitated after Reiki, is it too much Reiki?
Everyone has his or her own path to self-awareness. Don’t look to another person’s journey, but go within and find your own.
If you are new to Reiki, and even if you are not, you will have many questions as to ‘how’ to do things. ‘How’ to best use Reiki, ‘how’ to avoid mistakes, ‘how’ to feel more sensation (or less!), etc etc. The list can be endless to the Read More Infinite Paths to Self-Awareness
During Reiki self-treatment we gain moments of peace, when the mind is quiet and we get an experience of our true nature. We rest from the mind’s incessant thinking, and in this moment there is a great opportunity to witness our true being. I am understanding when people tell me that Reiki is not ‘powerful’ enough for them (I have been there too), and they feel the need to learn Read More Reiki as a doorway to pure Presence
This is a very common question and one I struggled with too in the beginning, what to do? Focus on something? Reiki ‘On’, Reiki ‘off’? Visualise white light? Rainbows? Unicorns? And when I was given the answer…”Nothing” I was flummoxed, what did that even mean?
Doing nothing is impossible for the mind, after all, thinking is what it does. Its like asking our heart to stop pumping, or our lungs Read More What should I be doing with my mind when I do Reiki?
When we give Reiki to others, we are taught that it is a channeling effect, and that Reiki is a one-way process – from us to the other. In this way we do not need to protect ourselves, and we do not need to worry about there energy affecting us. But as many people notice, Reiki treatments DO affect us, and sometimes in startling, or uncomfortable ways.
With Reiki, the idea is that once you begin to ‘fill yourself up’ with Reiki energy you begin to naturally balance yourself – and in this way you will begin to heal those parts of yourself that require healing – this is naturally different for each person as we all have unique imbalances and life experiences.
Your self-healing abilities are potentially the same as anyone else’s – the only difference Read More Why do some people get better results with Reiki than others?
The great thing with Reiki is that it works even when we are asleep, or watching TV, or commuting to work on the bus. Reiki is an automatic flow through your hands and the body then draws on this energy in an intuitive way to where it is needed. This means you do not need to be consciously thinking about it, or even conscious at all!
We do recommend you Read More I keep falling asleep when I do my Reiki, is that OK?
