Reiki learning and practicing are extremely easy, regardless of age or knowledge! Children with a naturally deep and pure spiritual connection with their souls will quickly perceive and feel the magic of Reiki. They have no doubts, they simply receive and enjoy it. And through my Reiki training for children, I can see clearly they love to do Reiki, for themselves and for others. In fact, we, adults, have a lot to learn from children. They are showing us a new way of being, truly believing in our own ability to do ”magic”!
Benefits of Children Learning Reiki
Reiki benefits children just in the same way as it can for the adults. More specifically, I find Reiki best serves the children during stressful situations or when they get hurt physically. Reiki helps them heal and aids them to feel calm, peaceful, confident and happier in life. The children are able to have better sleep, better concentration, become more creative. In short, they will enjoy life and enjoy themselves more. Children also intuitively know where to put their hands if someone is hurt and in need of Reiki.
Learning how to do self-Reiki will not only make the children feel empowered knowing that they have the ability to heal themselves and others, but also equip them with a loving and poweful tool that stays with them for a lifetime.
Imagine changing the word “meditation” with “Reiki”, in Dalai Lama’s quote below, we are indeed doing good for our future!
“If every 8 year old in the world is taught meditation, we will eliminate violence from the world within one generation.” (Dalai Lama).
My Early Experience with Reiki Training for Children
My now 6-year-old daughter is my first Reiki child student when she was 5. Actually, she was the one who asked me to teach her Reiki, after watching and listening to my adult classes and experiencing Reiki healing energy herself channeled by her mother. At first, I was not sure how to convey the knowledge and how to do ”proper” Reiki placement for her. But it turned out it’s all just about my conditioned unnecessary doubts that really got in the way, not her age or her experience!
After receiving Reiki Holy Fire III level 1 placement, she has slept much better and deeper, her mood during the day has improved, she enjoyed school more (she is an empath who is easily influenced by others’ energy). She told me that at times when she felt ”down”, she sat down quietly and sent Reiki to herself. She just intuitively decided to do that without me suggesting (I even didn’t think about this use for Reiki children before her sharing with me!). It is true that children’s intuitions are still very strong and they know what they really need to do from within, and they just do it!
Another time, she told me that she ”saw” a beautiful golden white light coming through my crown chakra on top of my head then releasing from my palms to her. It was so touching and encouraging to hear that from her! Those experiences gave me strength and confidence to continue my energy healing path, for both adults and children. Moreover, given that I am a trained Montessori teacher, sharing the beauty of Reiki with children has had a profound meaning in me.
Reiking Training for Children includes:
- – Age-appropriate meditation to clear and calm the mind.
- – Understanding what Reiki is and how to use it in daily life.
- – An introduction to energy body and energy feeling exercise.
- – Learning about the body’s 7 main energy centres (Chakras).
- – The Reiki Principles
- – The 21 day cleansing process.
- – Reiki Level 1 Placement
- – Steps to do self-Reiki and giving Reiki to others.
Together with a Reiki manual that is adjusted to suit the learning style of children, with lots of beautiful illustrations and shorter and simpler wording. After taking the training, your child can practice Reiki on him or herself as well as give Reiki healing energy to family members, friends, and pets.
Reiki Training for Children is for students ranging from 6 to 12 years old. Class size is kept to the maximum of 4 children and takes 2-3 hours to finish. This structure has proven to work out really well for me and my young students.

This is the first time I’ve heard about teaching reiki to a child. Very interesting post indeed! This kind of teaching is very important for this generations of high technology and very important to teach it to youngsters to strong build their inner self.
Well done for letting me know your experienced.
Hi again Al
I have been teaching Reiki to children for a while now and the experiences are always amazing as the children have no limiting beliefs. And I am extremely happy to see they are supported by their parents from such a young age. Just pure love!
All the best,
What a beautiful insight that you daughter shared with you about her own experience with Reiki. It is very interesting that you are teaching your daughter Reiki. It is not something that I thought would be possible, but you are obviously having success with your daughter, so I must compliment you. And I can actually see that it would be possible, as kids have not yet learnt from society what is perceived to be “the done thing”. So they act on their instincts far more.
I agree with you that we can learn a lot from kids. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts on teaching Reiki for children! Previously, I also did not think about teaching young children to use Reiki but I am really grateful that I did, not only to my daughter but also other children ranging from 6 to 9 years old so far! Their soul connections and their gifts are just phenomenal!
Ok, so you’re saying that the same trick Mr. Miyagi did on Daniel is actually real? This is something I would love to learn how to do but as a Christian believer. I am aware that there are techniques out there that the bible doesn’t even mention but I am curious to learn stuff like this.
I really like your example regarding the movie Karate Kid ^_^. And yes, we all have healing hands, both adults and children! It is our nature, we just need to re-connect, and believe in ourselves again. Children have less resistance than adults so they can shine even more!
All the best,
