Start Reiki with yourself

Now you can place your therapeutic arms on something and all the pieces, anybody and everybody. As you certainly will. However first issues first: don’t neglect your self!

Even when your major objective is to practise Reiki instead remedy, otherwise you’ve realized it to deal with a beloved one who's ailing, the starting-point is at all times your personal inside connection to it. The extra you utilize it for your self, the stronger that connection will change into. In a second, we are going to take a look at utilizing practices like meditation and respiratory to deepen this connection. However the easiest way is to make use of your therapeutic arms!

Should you can place your arms on others for therapeutic, it naturally follows which you can additionally place them on your self. Within the Western custom, that is referred to as a self-treatment. I begin daily with it.

It really works in quite a lot of methods:


  • It brings a level of concord and steadiness.
  • It really works on our bodily well being.
  • It clears vitality blockages.
  • We really feel extra energetic and centered in the course of the day.
  • We might obtain intuitive concepts for the day.
  • We change into extra aligned with the universe.
  • And it feels nice. I usually suppose it’s like getting a hug from God!

It really works finest once we create a each day routine. Personally, my most popular time for self-treatment is within the morning, earlier than I stand up.
