This is an open (love) letter to everyone in the 30-day Daily Self Reiki Challenge. And anyone else who wants to read…
I have practiced self Reiki every day since I learned First degree Reiki practice in 1986, so I know the immediate, on-going, and long-term benefits consistent self Reiki practice brings.
I’m so happy you want those benefits for yourself, everyone you love, and the world you live in.
I’m not being grandiose. The good we can bring to our world — our capacity to heal the world we live in — starts with our self-care.
I know you can do this. Even if you have given up at other times, I am confident you can actually practice self Reiki every day, and start a new life founded on self-love and self-care, to help yourself and others at the same time.
Sound good to you?
Welcome to all Reiki lineages
The challenge is open to Reiki practitioners from all lineages and practice styles.
Unless you ask for help, we won’t address how you practice – that’s totally up to you! The focus here is simply to get your Reiki hands on yourself every day to practice is the way that is meaningful to you.
If you’ve gotten this far and realize you haven’t yet signed up for your daily support emails, just click here.
Let’s get started
Starting Friday, April 1, I’ll send a very short, easy to read email to inspire your daily self Reiki practice, every day, for 30 days.
If you don’t already have a daily practice, you’ll quickly see how easily you can do this, and be awed by how supported you feel when you get your Reiki hands to your body every day, consistently.
If you already place your Reiki hands every day for self-practice, you are all set.
Just watch for your emails to start tomorrow, and thank you for being part of this community of Reiki practitioners dedicated to healing our world through consistent self-care!

Just starting your self Reiki practice?
If you are just starting your hands-on self-practice, you might need a little support to get started. Here are my favorite tips:
- Schedule it in. Make the decision when to practice once and then do it. That way, the obligation doesn’t weigh on you all day.
- Choose the easiest time in your day, the time when you are most likely to practice consistently. The best time to practice is the time when you actually will practice. For many people, that is while they are in bed at the beginning or end of the day, but your schedule might be different. I self-practice before I get out of bed in the morning, usually before I even open my eyes.
- Use a protocol. When you practice the same way every day, your hands develop a Reiki habit that takes the thinking out of your practice. If you don’t have a protocol, you can try the simple eight-placement one I use. If you have limited mobility in either arm, modify according to what you can do. Don’t have time for a full treatment today? Take a few minutes to practice as you can – perhaps head, chest, abdomen – and return to full treatment tomorrow.
- Place your hands. Or even one hand. Every day, no matter what. Don’t let perfect get in the way of good. Do what you can today. Practicing every day is more important than how long you practice. Your system responds to habits and rhythm.
Daily self Reiki questions?
Are there questions I didn’t anticipate?
Maybe you have a reason why you aren’t practicing daily self Reiki. You might think it’s a very good reason, but my experience for the last three decades is that people’s reasons for not practicing are usually misunderstandings.
I’m here to support you. Please ask your question in the comment section below.
Or ask your question on the Daily Self Reiki Facebook page. Don’t have a question? Please take a moment to like the page and share it widely, especially in Reiki groups or forums.
Let’s start a Daily Self Reiki (R)evolution and see how much happiness, health, and healing comes of it!
