Online Reiki self practice is a gift for these times. I started the global self practice sessions as a response to the pandemic. A friend dubbed it the I LOVE MySELF REIKI global movement, which sounds right to me!
Don’t you feel more love for yourself and others when you practice self Reiki? If you don’t know, then practice with us and find out. My online community Reiki practice sessions are free and open to everyone, even if you haven’t taken Reiki training.
My Reiki practice is truly supporting me at this time; it calms, soothes and comforts…after my practice, I feel more peaceful and can respond to the challenges of each day with greater clarity. My actions feel guided by love, not fear.—Liz McGuigan
COMMUNITY ONLINE REIKI SELF PRACTICE
Register below for Tuesdays at 4 PM NYC time.
Register below for Saturdays at 9 AM NYC time.
What’s so special about these global self Reiki sessions? Whereas many people bypass self care in their attempts to help the world (how can that possibly work?), we’re each practicing on ourselves — doing what only we can do, our self-practice — and we’re freely supporting one another as we practice Reiki self care. A free, open online community of people supporting one another to take Reiki care of themselves. You’ll participate in the privacy of your own space, no cameras on you, so feel free to practice in your pajamas! And definitely make yourself comfortable. You might get so relaxed, you fall into a deeply restorative sleep!
Everyone is welcome to attend a couple of sessions as my guest. If you find the sessions supportive, please help sustain the global practice sessions with a gratitude offering of $5 USD or more using this button:
Why our online community Reiki practice is especially important now
Your Reiki self practice has never been more important than now, as we face war and multiple epidemics — Covid-19 and all its variants, systemic racism, increasing divisiveness and “otherizing.”
Even after taking the vaccine, it’s still important to take good care of yourself. My online Reiki self practice sessions make it easier. All the stress and trauma we’ve collectively experienced since March 2020 has taken a toll. Being vaxed and boosted doesn’t mean you no longer need your immune system to function well. That’s not clear thinking.
Beside health concerns, most people are also addressing war and the economic aftermath of the pandemic. Life today can be stressful and overwhelming.
Building community to strengthen immunity
Have you heard the saying, community is immunity? We’re social beings, and many of us are still unable to be as social as we’d like. We can safely come together online to strengthen our sense of community, that precious experience of being part of a larger group of people, especially those with shared humane values.
Practicing self Reiki together in our online community self practice sessions addresses so many needs for so many people, all of us being cared for at the same time.
I first gathered people online on Tuesday, March 10, 2020, so we could experience the transformative power of Reiki self practice and the reassuring presence of community. The very next day, the World Health Organization declared a global pandemic.
The global community’s response to my online practice sessions continues to be so positive that we’re still practicing together twice each week, on Tuesdays and Saturdays. Each session stands on its own, and you can join any session, as your schedule allows.
Everyone is welcome to practice with us, regardless the level of your Reiki training, your style of practice, or whether you even have any Reiki training. We are a diverse global community of people who love our Reiki self practice, or who are interested to learn how Reiki self practice could help them.
By November 2020, after 8 months of online Reiki self practice sessions, more than 25,000 people from 95 countries had registered for a practice session. Then I stopped counting.
It’s interesting that even people who have a consistent self practice on their own find the community self Reiki sessions bring another dimension of support.
Self practice is self help that really works
There’s a rapid and predictable physiologic response to Reiki practice that’s very relevant to optimizing immune function. When you’re stressed and anxious (like most of us these days), your immune function is diminished. That’s accepted, conventional medical science.
When your immune system isn’t functioning optimally, you’re more vulnerable to infection. And if you get sick, it’s harder to recover, because your system lacks resilience.
Being able to fight off infection isn’t only about strengthening the immune system. You want effective, balanced immunity. That’s where the self-healing response to Reiki self practice comes in.
Think back to the last time you practiced self Reiki. Do you remember how good you felt afterwards? After our online Reiki self practice, people share words such as: relaxed, calm, peaceful, centered, grounded. My favorite word encompasses all of that: BALANCED.
Here are a few comments people have made after a community online Reiki self practice:
It was very calming, reassuring. Quieting.—Sheila Sperber Haas
Practice with you is my anchor during these Times. Thank you.—Carol Garlington
I practice self Reiki daily for 13 years. This was different. It felt good to know we were all practicing together. Your calm introduction helped me prepare and I’d never done a follow up afterwards to recognize and enjoy how I felt and let it sink in to stay with me. I felt healthy, calm and connected after our session.—Mary Morasch
I was on today’s session! I absolutely loved it…. it was the most peaceful I’ve felt in days!—Jodi Wasserman
I find the community Reiki practice something I really look forward to. It relaxes me deeply into the yoga nidra state (which I’ve just learned the name for). I’ve done self Reiki consistently for about 30 years but was not taught such a simple, elegant format. And I also gain a lot from the few minutes you talk afterwards. Thank you.—Sherril Twitchell
I practice self Reiki every day. But today, the community self practice helped me feel relaxed, peaceful, centered. Thank you!—Olga Diaz
IMPORTANT NOTE: Your system functions best when it’s balanced. Reiki self practice helps you maintain a balanced state. You still need to be sensible, which means not only frequent hand-washing, social distancing and wearing a mask when outside, but also getting adequate sleep, moving your body, and eating good food. Reiki self practice doesn’t replace either sensible hygiene or any needed medical care.
Online community self practice sessions for you and everyone
Perhaps you are new to Reiki self practice or were never taught a protocol. You’re very welcome to join our self practice session.
To support you, I’ll share how I practice as we go, letting you know when to move your hands and where to place them.
However, if you already have a self practice protocol you prefer, you’re welcome to practice as you usually do.
Thank you for helping me to relax more into my practice and not worry about getting it right.—Sheila Constanti
My goal is to encircle the globe with people self practicing together. Within the first 8 months, more than 25,000 people from 95 countries registered. Won’t you join us?
People with any amount of training from any Reiki lineage or practice style are welcome. And if you don’t have Reiki training, you’re welcome to follow along in our self practice session. Many who don’t yet have proper Reiki training have shared that taking time for themselves and placing hands in our self practice class has been beneficial.
But don’t take my word for it. Why not join us and see how the combination of Reiki self practice and community helps you?
Register for our online Reiki self practice community gathering now
Our next online Reiki self practice sessions are listed above. No need to cancel if you register and are unable to join us. An hour after each session you’re registered for, I’ll email the registration link for our next gathering (you can unsubscribe at any time). Please share your experience and this page on Facebook and other social media. What we need now is more people staying centered and balanced, don’t you think?
Let’s practice together, healing ourselves and our world
Together, we can make a difference and create a better world. Together with our practice and with one another, we can get through this challenging time as an online global community, transforming ourselves by finding profound inner strength and deeper love for ourselves, for one another, and for the planet we share.
ONLINE REIKI SELF PRACTICE RECORDING AVAILABLE If you’re unable to practice with us live, here’s a recording of a recent community Reiki self practice session, during which we spoke about feeling safe, which is so important for immunity. When you don’t feel safe, your body doesn’t prioritize fighting pathogens; its priority is survival, and it optimizes itself to fight an external threat rather than an internal one. Here’s another recording in which we talked about love, and one discussing how we can make legendary choices.
Not everyone with Reiki training has been taught Reiki self practice. Or maybe you were, but you forgot. No worries! Here are self practice guidelines to fill any gap in memory or training. Of course, this isn’t a replacement for a qualified Reiki class, but it’s a good first step.
And here are more support options —
Sign up for the Daily Self Reiki Challenge for 30 days of free, very short emails to support your Reiki self practice. The challenge emails are inspiration for your self practice; they are not Reiki instruction.
Are you ever confused about the best healthcare option for any particular situation? Alternative, Conventional and Traditional Medicine gives a detailed overview so you can make better, more informed choices.
