One of the best things a student receives from attending a Reiki class, when one learns Reiki, is the ability to give oneself a Reiki treatment. This is referred to as Reiki self treatment.

Reiki self treatment involves placing our hands on our body in a series of hand positions that are taught in the Reiki class. A self treatment is ideally done for 30 to 60 minutes a day. If you struggle to find this length of time, even 15 minutes of Reiki everyday can be very beneficial. In Hawayo Takata’s words ‘Some Reiki is better than no Reiki’.

While reflecting on Reiki self treatment recently, I realised that my 15 year anniversary of learning Reiki is coming up in June 2016. I am really glad to have learnt Reiki. I feel even more glad that I have been self treating daily for this length of time. Reiki has helped me in every way that I need, at every level that I need – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. One of the nicest ways it has helped me is to be more connected with the Source, with the Universal flow, with my inner self. This connection can be invaluable with finding the way forward in life and figure out the next step. I know that I would not be in the space I am in if I did not have Reiki in my life.

Passing on the ability to practice Reiki seems to be the best way to mark this anniversary. I cannot think of a better way to spend this time other than teaching a Reiki level 1 class. If you would like to learn Reiki in June with me, I would love to invite you to attend this special Reiki class. If you have already learnt Reiki, you may wish to refresh level 1 Reiki. It can be a wonderful healing experience to sit in on a Reiki class and be immersed in the Reiki energy over four days.

If you would like to find out more about learning Reiki or sitting in on a Reiki class, please do contact me. I would love to hear from you.

If you have already learnt Reiki, it would be wonderful to know how you have benefitted from being able to do daily Reiki self treatment. Please do share your experience. You may inspire someone to learn Reiki.
