Reiki Emotional Release in 7 Steps

How to do Emotional Release in Reiki



One of the benefits of learning Reiki is that often emotional release happens naturally while practicing Reiki. If you are aware of the phenomenon, you can easily take advantage of it.

By just being aware of what is happening in your mind and body while doing Reiki, you can expand your emotional freedom.

Emotional release often happens while practicing self Reiki or while taking Reiki treatment from a Reiki practitioner. Anyone can learn to take advantage of this emotional release and be more peaceful.




Here, we will be talking about pent up emotions that arise on their own. We do not make any attempt to stimulate the mind or to dig painful memories. We are just observing the emotions that arise automatically. This is because our subconscious know what we are ready to face.

Now lets look at the 7 steps for emotional healing with Reiki in detail:

  1. The first step is just to be aware of the thoughts, images, memories, and emotions that arise while doing your Reiki self treatment. Reiki makes you so relaxed physically and mentally that all suppression comes to an end. The mind allows suppressed memories of past events to arise automatically. When these memories are buried deep in the mind they can cause us emotional discomfort. But when they arise, you have the opportunity to release them in the moment. It in your conscious presence that comes from Reiki healing, you can release them safely and easily.
  2. To resolve them you just need to accept the truth of the moment and notice the sensations, thoughts, images and feeling that arises. While you are being an observer of all that arises, let the Reiki energy continue to flow through your body and mind and heal you. Reiki will help you release all the negative thought patterns slowly and steadily.
  3. If you have completed Reiki Second Degree you can draw the Sei He Ki Symbol on the images you see on your mind while repeating 'Sei He Ki' 3 times in your mind.
  4. Notice the effect of the memory on on your body in the form of sensations and changes in your breathing pattern. Notice any discomfort, unease, restlessness, tiredness, etc. Notice how the sensations and feelings change moment to moment. Notice how the intensity of the sensations increases, reaches a peak, comes down and then disappears. Keep observing till the sensations disappear and you experience greater emotional freedom.
  5. Thank the Reiki Energy for the emotional healing you experienced. Thank yourself for being an observer and having the courage to face the suppressed memory, thoughts and emotions and letting them come up and release.
  6. Let the gentle flow of Reiki energy continue to pass through you and recharge your cells and heal you from the depth of your being. Enjoy the comforting, energizing, nourishing, pleasing and fulfilling experience as the Universal Life Force Energy flows through you. Making you feel refreshed, re-energized, vibrant and positive.
  7. Give thanks and complete your Reiki session with the understanding and acceptance of the fact that you have unlimited access to the Universal Life Force Energy, at any given time of the day.


Emotional ups and downs are a part of life. For this reason I always recommend people to learn Reiki themselves so that they can heal themselves. If there is some sticky topic or highly emotional issue, you can always take additional help form a Reiki practitioner or your Reiki Master.
