How to Use Reiki for Better Sleep

Reiki for Good Sleep



In my last post I talked about how Reiki can boost your immune system, today I am going to share with you how to use Reiki for good sleep at night. Be it a loss of sleep due to too much thinking or be it a medical condition of insomnia, Reiki can be of great help. Sleeplessness can occur to people of all ages but predominantly many people experience it in old age. A lot of health related problems are associated with it.

If this remains untreated then, people may suffer from so many health hazards like amnesia (loss of memory), cardiac problems, mental depressions, irritability, muscle ache, immune deficiency and they may face accidents while handling heavy machines or while driving a vehicle. In order to get rid from this problem along with its associated dangers its important to take medical help and practice Reiki for good sleep. Reiki can aid faster recovery to optimal health when it goes hand in hand with the recommendations of the Doctor.

People who take sleeping pills indiscriminately or who consume narcotic drugs or beverages, may cause more harm to the body than the lack of sleep. So instead of such unhealthy options, they can get the help of a holistic and spiritual treatment procedure of Reiki.

It has been observed that people who have learnt Reiki or have undergone Reiki treatment for sleeplessness are able to enter a completely relaxed state and enter deep sleep in moments. Its great to get the desired sleep, that has a refreshing effect on the body as well as on the mind. It also has been noticed that, even after just one session of Reiki therapy the insomniac people often sleep better as compared to the other days.


You have to follow the Reiki procedures for self treatment while practising Reiki to get rid of the problem of insomnia or sleeplessness. Reiki self treatment procedure has a relaxing impact on the body and the mind and even the soul. This procedure harmonises all the chakras or the energy centers of the body. This procedure can be followed any time of the day to get the peace and relaxation you want. But particularly for this condition one should practise it before going to sleep to get the best result. A deep sleep and relaxation can be experienced by the practitioner if he or she falls asleep while performing this procedure.

The practitioner should maintain each position at least for five minutes. He or she has to maintain four positions. These procedures should be followed one by one from position 1 to position 4.

  • Note: For this procedure to work at optimum level you should have completed Reiki Level 1 but there is no harm to try it even now so you can see the difference when you do learn Reiki yourself.

In the first position the two palms should be kept on both the closed eyes and the palms should rest on the cheek bones of either sides of the face. This position usually reduces the mental stress and purifies your thoughts. This position also accelerates the meditative state. This position should be maintained for five minutes.

Next, both the hands should be placed on chest of both the sides. Fingers should touch lower borders of the collar bones or clavicles of either side. This positing normalizes the blood pressure, harmonizes the heart rate, and improves the functions of immune system and the lymphatic system in the body.

After this, one hand should be kept above the umbilicus or navel and another hand should be kept below the umbilicus or navel and the practitioner should just relax himself or herself maximally to facilitate the flow of healing energy throughout the body. This procedure is helpful to restore the energy and the vital physiological functions of the body. This procedure is helpful to treat the digestive organs including stomach and also heals the solar plexus. This position is usually helpful for the strong drives like shock, fear and mental depression.

Finally in the last position, both the hands should be kept on the lower abdomen in the shape of “V”. The finger tips should touch each other at pubic area (the meeting point of both the pubic bones). This position is helpful to treat the coupling organs and excretory organs like bladder and urethra. It enhances the level of trust and self confidence, which in turn helps to acquire a easy sleep.


After completing all the steps in this self-treatment process, the Reiki practitioner can experiences a deep calmness within himself. The practitioner should be in this state of deep relaxation as long as he/she desires or fall asleep in this deeply satisfying state.
