Reiki for Good Sleep

How to Use Reiki for Better Sleep?



As you know, Reiki can be used for a variety of purposes. This includes using Reiki for good sleep at night. In fact, many people feel sleepy while doing Reiki self treatment or when someone is giving Reiki treatment to them.

This is normal because you enter a deeper level of the mind as soon as Reiki Energy starts flowing through you. When you do Reiki self treatment in the morning or at any other time of the day you should do it while sitting on a chair. But at night you can complete the 12 Reiki hand positions for treating self & others while you are on the bed. You will fall asleep during or after you complete the self treatment.

If you didn't fell asleep after completing the self treatment just relax! Just continue relaxing in the most comfortable hand position and continue to give Reiki. If you have problem with sleep it will take a few sessions for your body and mind to learn to fall asleep wile Reiki is turned on in sleeping position. With practice your mind will learn to fall asleep as soon as you start your Reiki self treatment on bed. When this starts to happen you might miss out on your night self treatment. If you are doing Reiki for personal or spiritual growth you might want to complete your self treatment in sitting position and then continue giving Reiki in sleeping position till you fall asleep. This brings us to another question:

Is it OK to fall asleep during Reiki?


First of all as I said earlier, it is normal to fall asleep during Reiki especially when you are in sleeping position on your bed.


  • If you are doing Reiki for self growth then you must do Reiki in sitting position so that you do not fall asleep. You might feel sleepy but its unlikely you will enter deep sleep in sitting position. Once you complete your sadhana you can go to sleep. This sleep will be deep and relaxing.
  • If you are doing Reiki for good sleep then you can do Reiki in sleeping position and fall asleep while doing Reiki.


Some people experience a shortening of their sleep time when they start doing Reiki regularly. This is because the body relaxes deeply during Reiki so needs less sleep to feel refreshed and energized. This is good news for people who want to do more in life as it gives them more time to accomplish their goals or to progress further on the spiritual path by spending the time available in doing more sadhana.
