Have you ever received Reiki from a child?

My knee was hurting basle the other day and I lifted it on a chair that my daughter just had gotten down from.  She turns back, places her hands on my knee, looks at me and says: Reeki.
Just gotta love such pure energy.

My Baby & Reiki

Since my baby was born, reiki time for me seemed like a luxury, yet I kept to it.  I at least did a mental session of 5 min, and that got me through the tough moments with her reflux, only 10 min. naps, being a tired baby and crying all day and night.

I could not understand why this was happening to her.  I had given her so much reiki while pregnant.  This makes me think about the wonderful pregnancy with absolutely no complications, and the quick delivery (even being my first one).  I also think back and see how healthy she is now.  So I am sure those questions were merely coming from my severe lack of sleep.

As a baby, she would not want me to give her reiki.  I think it was because she experienced some discomfort from the healing, since she is super sensitive to energy, and maybe it was just too much for her.  But then again, reiki never gives or does anything that cannot be handled by the receiver.  I could never giver her reiki for sleeping, since it activated her.  Ha ha ha, little did I know that the Sei He Ki in her forehead would not put her to sleep but energize her for another hour.

Again... we all react in different ways to energy, as well as to reiki.  We always have to wach our intuition and go with that.  The same person might react differently to reiki on different occasions as well.

Now she loves reiki.  She is 20 months old and she senses that I am giving her something.  Sometimes she says "mooh" when I think I am done, but she still wants more.  Now reiki calms her down for sleeping.  But I do not use the DAI  KO MIO if I want her to sleep as well as calm down.

I'd love to hear from others and their babies, children and reiki.  There is so little written and said about children.

Sleeping Better with Reiki

I rarely have trouble sleeping.  Since I started practising reiki, I've had even less trouble sleeping.  But there is always that particular situation that might make it difficult to go to sleep or go back to sleep.  This is what I do:

1. I give reiki to my pillow and/or matress.
2. I draw a SEI HEI KI on my forehead.
3. I give myself the auto treatment right before going to sleep.
4. I give reiki to the particular sleeping situation.  When my husband is really tired, it is very difficult for me to get a good night's sleep because he is so deep in his sleep that he forgets he shares a bed.  I give reiki to this particular situation and it helps a lot!  Reiki also helps with not being able to sleep because of another person's snoring.

I have four stitches in my index finger which made it impossible to sleep the first night.  When I woke up, I made a mental note to use some of the techniques mentioned above.  I slept better than I had in a long time.  As a matter of fact, I have been oversleeping.

Should you concentrate when giving reiki?

I was taught that you could give reiki while watching TV, reading, riding the bus, sitting in a meeting, etc.  I am glad I was told this, because I might not have committed to just reiki time while doing nothing else.  I like multitasking, and this allowed me to give myself a lot of reiki.

I was also taught that some reiki is better than none, and that reiki always works.  That the reiki energy is intelligent and does its job whether a concentrate or not.

After a year and a half practicing reiki, and having read and experimented a lot, I feel that when I concentrate, I reach deeper levels for the energy to work.  I cannot say that you "should" concentrate all the times, but I can say that if you want quicker healing it is worth concentrating.  I also feel this applies more to level 2 practitioners, because healing is not only physical.  I fell it is even more so if you are a reiki master.

I also feel that it is good to have the liberty to give myself reiki whenever I want to do so, but I am inclined to concentrate whenever I give myself an auto treatment.

If you are charging for reiki, there is no question about being really focused on the person for the time agreed.  If you are exchanging reiki sessions or giving or receiving multiple reiki, ask the person receiving reiki permission before engaging in a conversation with the other reiki practitioners.

If the receiver is concentrated, they can see and feel things that might help you direct the energy towards faster and better healing.  If I am chatting with the receiver I am not tuned with my intuition and I am not letting the person experience their own.

If the receiver needs or wants to speak, then I listen carefully to what they are telling me and respect their free will at all times.

My Grandmother and Reiki

My Grandmother is sick and has decided to live in a world of her own. She does not recognize people all the time, and has gone back to the past. She does not remember her grandchildren. She has been like this for two years.

Two weeks ago, I started sending her Reiki as one of the multiple distance healings I do once a week. I had always left the Reiki-giving responsibility for my grandmother to my mother, but since I discovered multiple distance healings, I decided to start giving Reiki to her myself.
My mother also told me that she could not visit her one day (a few days ago) and she sent her Reiki and visualized a lot of love, and purposely sent a lot of love with the Reiki energy to my grandmother.

A week later, she went to visit my grandmother. What was my mother's surprise when my grandmother asked for me by name for the first time in Two years! And in that same visit my grandmother would not stop kissing my mother's hands.  She also told my mom: "It is a good thing that we share a lot of love".

I believe that in that subconscious world my grandmother lives in, she feels all the Reiki we are sending her. And she is more connected to the present and aware of what is going on around her.

Grounding Meditation

It is important for the Reiki practitioner to meditate. Grounding meditations help a lot, because they are a meditation that can connect you to the Universal Energy and also Root yourself to earth.

Too much spirituality without ground or roots to Mother Earth is also something we must avoid. While we might feel like flying, it is always important to obtain balance. And roots are necessary to nourish and be nourished from the mother (earth).

I have read various exercises, and have come up with one of my own. I am not saying that I have invented it, but that my guides have instructed me to do it this way through meditation.


1. I like to use meditation music. It always helps me isolate from noises and achieve better concentration.

2. Sit on a chair or stand with your back straight and both feet touching the ground. Even if you are not on a first floor, the ground will connect you to the earth.

3. Concentrate on your respiration and start breathing energy from your crown chakra.

4. Breathe white energy and let it reach your solar plexus chakra. Do as many inhaling and exhaling as necessary until you reach each chakra.

5. Keep on breathing energy, to each one of your chakras until you reach the first or base chakra.

6. Feel how you start growing roots from your feet; feel them sink into the earth.

7. Start breathing also from the earth to your base chakra.

8. You become a perfect and beautiful column of white light. It is ok if the light has another color.

9. Feel how you pass light up and down this column as you inhale and exhale all the condensed (bad) energy that is inside you, exhale sickness, problems, exhale everything that is not Universal light and love. I see myself blowing black smoke from my nose. Continue this way until you see yourself inhaling and exhaling only pure light and love. Until all the negative things have gone out. Until you exhale just breath and not some anymore.

10. Continue to breathe this way exhaling pure love and light as long as you want to.

11. To end the exercise, thank your guides for this cleansing, thank the earth for the rooting, and thank the Reiki energy for the love.

12. Slowly start moving all parts of your body until fully aware and out of the meditative state.

You might be a little dizzy at first, or relaxed. Be careful if you are to do an activity that requires your full attention after this meditation.

It usually takes me 5 minutes to complete this process. The more I do it, the easier it gets to expel all that I do not want inside me and start breathing only love.

First Level Reiki

I was taught that Usui Reiki has 4 levels of attunements and initiations.

First level Reiki is mostly physical. You learn to heal yourself and others physically. You are open to receive energy from the source for the first time and you might feel the energy. Some feel warmth or their hands hot in certain positions, others feel cold, others feel like if there were an energy ball moving beneath their hands, and some other do not feel anything. All and none sensations that you might feel or not feel are fine. We all have our way of experimenting and living Reiki. No one can go wrong with Reiki.

In the first level, I was taught to ask for the energy and start applying my hands on the affected area or doing a healing session. I was taught to just be there and put the energy to good use. Not to give it any intention. The energy knows what it has and needs to do.

It is important that you have permission from the patient for giving that person Reiki. And you might learn to notice, that even if the person has said yes, that they are not receiving the energy. The receiver is the person that decides where he or she needs the energy and for how long.

You can also notice that you might initiate a Reiki session while walking on the street or while you are with a person. Just let it flow and be happy to be channeling energy. The more you channel, the better it is for you. I went to Venice a week after my First Level attunement. I was in St Mark’s Square and decided to go into the Doge’s palace. I started the tour and got to a passage that would go right over “The Bridge of Sighs”. As soon as I started crossing the bridge I felt reiki energy going out of my hands. It was winter and I felt hot. I got a little scared and went back, because I sensed too much condensed energy in that place. I always think that I should have stayed and give as much energy as I was asked for. But I followed my instinct, and it told me to go back and end my tour of that place.

I can also tell you that I had a lot of trouble going up and down stairs. And that is what you have all around Venice; small bridges and stairs. I would give myself a Reiki healing session every night, and I would exchange punctual reiki with my mother on our knees. I was as good as new the next day, ready to go up and down bridges again. Sometimes we had to go to the hotel after lunch, to give ourselves Reiki and continue our discovery of wonderful corners in Venice.
