Receiving Reiki From Others

Many of us, especially women, are so used to being care takers. Caring for everyone else first and forgetting or just neglecting to care for ourselves.

This is just a reminder that you are never too busy to take time out for yourself. That time out could be 15 minutes, 30 minutes or even an hour and hey if you are super lucky a full day!

The important thing is to take time out to pamper yourself.

Soak your feet in hot water, epson salt and lavender/peppermint essential oils. Fifteen minutes of this will rejuvenate you surely.

As Reiki practitioners in service to others around us it is imperative that we make sure we also receive.  Self-reiki practice is extremely beneficial but there is nothing like lying back and receiving from someone else.

Receiving a hands on reiki treatment at least once every two weeks or once a month will keep you centered.

Today my friend Lelayna is coming over to give me a much needed reiki treatment and I am so excited.

Thanks to Alice for reminding me to find someone close by to give me a treatment.

So paying it forward, so to speak, do not forget to exchange with a friend or seek out a practitioner to give you a little reiki tlc.


  1. I like the feet soak recipe! I am a big propronet of self care and recommend you do it daily!!!!!!!!!!

    I just got some reiki from friends yesterday myself - itsn't it wonderful!

  2. Greetings Patty,

    Thanks. When you do the soak just 3 drops of each oil should suffice. Using only pure essential oils. A great source is

    I usually use very warm water straight from the sink then supplement it with water that has been boiled in a tea pot or so. Just gradually adding hotter water.

    Anyway, my Reiki session was AMAZING. I felt so restful, peaceful, happy floating just above sleep and awake. And at some points I became overwhelmed and would just laugh and giggle.

    Highly recommended.
