Reiki I – is the base or foundation of the Spiritual Healing Energy – Reiki. Reiki I is the introduction of this healing energy, Reiki. Reiki I explain in detail how to apply Reiki in person or hands-on Reiki. Reiki I student has to practice these 26 Reiki Points for continuous 21 days.
After Reiki I attunement, one is able to give Reiki to self, others, animals, plants, Reiki food, Water, medicines, and n number of things, with hands-on Reiki. One is able to channel the Reiki Energy just by placing the palms on or above the patient’s body.
So, very rightly it is called Reiki Hands. One does not need any other tool to heal others.
Why treat these 26 points?
Every body part is related with some emotion, and over the years there may be an energy block in these parts. Initially, by giving Reiki to these 26 points, we try to clear all the major Chakras, emotional blockages if any and at the same time, related body parts.
Why treat for 21 days? It is a Reiki Detox!
When you attuned to Reiki I, 21 days continual practice on these 26 points is a must. Why? This is the Cleansing Period, which you must not miss after your attunement.
21 days cleansing period / Reiki Detox – is for 7 Chakras.
We have seven Chakras, each chakra takes 3 days for cleansing.
Root Chakra / Mooladhar Chakra: Day 1, 8, 15
Sacral / Swadhisthan Chakra: Day 2, 9,16.
Solar Plexus / Manipur Chakra: Day 3, 10, 17.
