How to Use Reiki for Better Sleep

Using Reiki for Better 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 better 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 in times of stress. Its normal for people to experience reduced sleep in old age. But for young people, good sleep is a must. Otherwise it can cause lots of health problems.

If this remains untreated, people may suffer from 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 associated dangers its important to take medical help and practice Reiki for good sleep. Reiki can aid faster recovery to optimal health. Reiki 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 lack of sleep. So instead of such unhealthy options, they can get the help of this holistic and spiritual treatment 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 of mind easily.

Most important Reiki point for better sleep



You have to give Reiki self treatment on the 3rd eye chakra to get rid of the problem of insomnia or sleeplessness. With regular practice of Reiki you can enter deep sleep in minutes.

I have many students who came to learn Reiki for better sleep and when they came for Reiki 2nd degree course they had overcome the problem of sleep.

Before I start the Reiki course I normally ask if the student or any family member has any problem. One of my student Dr Pereira had mentioned to me that his father had insomnia.

As an assignment I told him to give Reiki on 3rd eye chakra to his father just before going to sleep. He gave Reiki for approx 15 minutes. His father did not even remember when he fell asleep. He woke up feeling refreshed after many months.

It also has been reported many times by many of my students that even the first session of Reiki gives good results. Many insomniac people often sleep better as compared to the other days when Reiki is given to them.

Also, Reiki self treatment procedure on all the 7 chakra's has a relaxing impact on the body and the mind. It is one of the most important and rewarding thing to do for good sleep. Sleep has a refreshing effect on the body as well as on the mind.

Mudra Therapy for Better Sleep

As per Mudra Therapy Gyan Mudra is very useful in getting natural sleep. For this you have to bring together the tip of the index fingure and the thumb as shown in the image below.

You have to hold this hand mudra for minimum 10 to 15 for it to get activated. If you do this 15 minutes 3 times a day, you get good results. While on the bed do it till you get sleep.

Reiki practitioners will get faster and better results because they are familiar with energy work and the channel are open after Reiki attunement.



Is it OK to fall asleep during Reiki?



Reiki therapy harmonizes all the chakras or the energy centers of the body. Reiki self healing procedure can be followed any time of the day to get peace and relaxation you want. But particularly for this condition one should practice 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.






Reiki Hand Positions for Sleep



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.

Reiki Positions 1 for Sleep



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.


Reiki Positions 2 for Sleep



Next, both the hands should be placed on chest on both sides. Fingers should touch lower borders of the collar bones or clavicles of either side.

This position normalizes the blood pressure, harmonizes the heart rate, and improves the functions of immune system and the lymphatic system in the body.

Reiki Positions 3 for Sleep



After this, one hand should be kept above the navel and another hand should be kept below the navel and the Reiki practitioner should just relax himself or herself maximally to facilitate the flow of Reiki energy throughout the body.

This procedure is helpful to restore the energy and the vital physiological functions of the body. It is helpful to treat the digestive organs including stomach and also heals the solar plexus. This position is usually helpful for the strong emotions like fear and depression.

Reiki Positions 4 for Sleep



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.
