Connect with Reiki energy – How to do it

Establishing a link with Reiki is not, strictly speaking, meditation, but it is an important process to learn, after receiving the Reiki level 1 attunement. In fact, how to connect with Reiki is a question that many have when starting to study Reiki.  It helps to make the connection to Reiki and ready yourself for channeling the energy. For instance, it may be done before giving Reiki treatment (or to self) or using Reiki for any other purpose.

Connect to Reiki


  • Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths to calm the body and mind.
  • Raise your hands above the head, palms pointing forward – see above picture.
  • Imagine Reiki energy entering through the top of your head, flowing throughout your entire body.
  • Wait for a few seconds until you feel energized by Reiki.
  • Proceed to use Reiki
  • That’s it!
It is not essential for Level 1, as it is possible to connect with Reiki instantly when starting to heal, but it is a nice way to prepare and puts you in a positive frame of mind.
