I hear a lot of this complaint from Reiki Level 1 students – Do you also find self-Reiki boring? I can understand that at the beginning when you attuned to level 1, it is mandatory for the students to practice Self-Reiki.
Students have to practice Self Reiki on all 26 points during their Reiki Detox Period. But you must understand that if you want to build a successful Reiki practice you must have a solid foundation.
Reiki level 1 attunement is the base and the most important headway for the future attunements.
Reiki is not a religious but a spiritual practice, and people from all walks of life get attuned to Reiki. The early you start, better for you. We come across many different and difficult situations as our life lessons to learn.
Surely the process is not easy, all the good and bad experiences of life -not only of this life but also from past lives – have some impressions on our sub – conscious mind. These impressions mold our lives accordingly.
So when a person attuned to Degree1, everybody’s experience is different, because every person has his or her own karmic account. That person’s overall existence- physical, mental, emotional and spiritual – have different embedded impressions. It’s obvious that no one’s attunement result is the same.
Reiki works for the Highest Interest of the person, so result differs from person to person. So, after you attuned to Degree 1 Reiki, it is made mandatory for all Attuned students, to follow a fixed or prescribed path to follow.
The first 21 days of detoxification is very crucial, as it clears/ detoxifies all your system including seven Chakras, endocrine glands, your aura – by balancing it TOGETHER.
Basically, 21 days are divided for detoxification of seven Chakras, related endocrine glands in the following way:
Mooladhar/ Root Chakra – 1, 8, 15th day.
Swadhisthan/ Sacral Chakra – 2,9,16th day.
Manipur/ Solar Plexus Chakra – 3,10,17th day.
Anahata/ Heart Chakra – 4,11,18th day.
Visshudhi/ Throat Chakra – 5, 12, 19th day.
Agnya/ Third Eye Chakra -6,13,20th day.
Sahastrar/ Crown Chakra – 7, 14,21th day.
So you see, it is a very systematic way to cleanse your mind, body, and soul and if you practice Reiki religiously you will get astonishing results. Why ? Coz, before attunement, our whole system has gone through different experiences, and as a result, some of our Chakras works less efficiently, some chakras got energetically blocked resulting in different physical and psychological issues.
The moment you start Self-Reiki, slowly but surely, your body starts to detoxify itself. Your Chakras start getting cleaned and balanced.
Each and Every Chakra when in balanced condition bestow some subtle powers to the practitioner, which further enables the practitioner to be a good healer.
So Reiki Degree 1 attuned, never miss a single day of your 21 day ritual of detoxification!
These 21 Days of Detoxification, establishes you as a well practiced attuned Reiki practitioner, who are ready to go to the next level of attunement – Level 2 Reiki Attunement – which enables you to send Reiki through your intention. How wonderful is that?
Three Symbols, heightened intuition and ability to heal this World just by your intention !!
As you move up to your levels, your Self-Reiki practice is get limited to seven Chakras or where it seems to be needed, Why is this so?
After completing your 21 days detoxification, your body is tuned to this newly gained vibrational change.
Your body is able to clean itself with Self-Reiki, so now it is sufficient if you practice Self-Reiki on seven chakras only. Degree 1 attunement, no doubt, is the most difficult level. This attunement needs very rigid 21-day detoxification daily practice with a perfect hands-on position to follow.
Once you complete this level and your daily schedule of 21 days detoxification, next levels are much easier and interesting.
Degree 2 onwards, you don’t need to follow a particular hands- on position to give Reiki.
Degree 2 enables one, to intuitively follow his/her daily Reiki Practice. With the use of symbols and heightened intuition, sensitivity and upliftment in frequency level, you exactly practice your Reiki, where it is needed !!
The unique thing about Reiki is that you simultaneously healing your emotions while you practice on these points. Every part of our body is related to a specific emotion as well. Do you want to know which body part is related to which emotion?
This list will be helpful to you while treating others and also while doing Self-Reiki. When you practice Self-Reiki for a while, you will definitely notice the behavioral as well as emotional changes in the person.
Self-Reiki is not only for beginners, it is a must for every Reiki practitioner.
Self-Reiki is a must for every Reiki Practitioner. Every Reiki Practitioner self-Reiki herself/himself every day, not because it is mandatory to a practitioner but a dedicated Reiki Practitioner understands the importance of a Self-Reiki.
After level 1, nothing is strictly prescribed for the advanced practitioners. But does this mean that these advanced practitioners do not practice Reiki?
As you advance in your Reiki training, you understand that it is of utmost importance to self-Reiki every day.
Every level requires a different type of practice. Level 2 is more of distant Reiki and symbols, whereas Master level, needs more practice of meditation. Meditation adds a new dimension to your Reiki practice. More you practice meditation, easily you can connect with your Higher Self and the guidance through it.

Self-Reiki is to heal ourself- our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual existence, by placing our hands on different parts of our body. We take good care of our physical health but do you know that our existence is not limited to physical only.
