Giving Yourself a Reiki Session


Hi, I’m Judith Conroy of Chikara-Reiki-Do and I’m answering your questions on Reiki.

So, question:

I’ve been looking through my Reiki books, but can only find how to give Reiki to others. How do I go about giving myself a daily Reiki session? Sorry if you think I’m being dim.


No dimmer than me at times.

Now, to give yourself a home treatment, simply sit comfortably and open yourself up by using the symbols of your choice on your hands and also down your chakras if you like.

Always repeat the symbol name three times to invoke that energy and then say, I open myself up to divine love and wisdom.

Then place your hands around your body as shown for the 12 hand positions. Starting with your eyes.

And as you do this, say to yourself, I call upon the Reiki energy, for me, me, me, right here, right now for my highest good and the highest good of all concerned.

Or, you can say your name instead of me.

Then let the energy flow and allow your breathing to relax, too.

Leave your hands in each position for about three to five minutes.

Or whatever feels right for you.

Then finish by sealing the process.

Do this by drawing out a large Power Symbol over your front and say, I now seal this process with divine love and wisdom.

This is how I do it if I’m getting myself a full treatment, and this is what I recommend if you’ve just been attuned.

Do this every day for at least 30 days following your attunement, just so you get to feel the flow and really connect to your Reiki energy.

But I often sit with just one hand on my solar plexus and one over my heart, and then I call upon the Reiki energy to flow in me by using the previous statement.

But whatever you decide to do, keep it simple.

You can use the statement I’ve used.

Or you can make up one of your own if it feels better for you.

Never be afraid of jiggling things around until they sit comfortably for you.

Thanks for listening.
