Reiki’s healing technique is used to help clear the mind, body, and spirit of any negativity, stress, or physical pain. Overall, it helps the receiver feel better and grow as a person. It can even allow other living beings, such as your plants, to grow.
For Reiki plants, the process is the same as it is for people. You will first have to go through first-degree training. Then through holding the seeds, the pot, or hovering your hands over the leaves, you can channel Reiki’s healing energy to your plant.
If you have become a Reiki practitioner and are either looking to practice doing Reiki or are curious if this energy healing technique can work on plants, this definitive guide will tell you how you use Reiki and further apply it on plants the easiest way possible.
Understand How Reiki Works
While this may be stating the obvious, if you want to know how to use Reiki plants, it is in your best interest to understand how Reiki works to begin learning how to do Reiki in general. Then, you can know how to use it on plants.
What Is Reiki?
The Japanese technique of Reiki is used to heal receivers’ minds, bodies, and spirits in a non-invasive and simple way. Through the flow of universal energy from the Reiki practitioner to the receiver they are physically or virtually focusing on, they can promote healing within our bodies.

The word Reiki is derived from two Japanese words:
- Rei translates to “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power,” which you can think of as whichever power or source you believe to be greater than humans.
- Ki means “life force energy,” the unseen energy that essentially courses through us and makes us feel happy, sick, and alive.
So, through translation, Reiki means spiritually guided life force energy, which stands true in practice. Through the simple, natural technique of Reiki and using one’s hands, the Reiki practitioner can use this life force energy to treat the whole person, promoting relaxation, feelings of peace, general well-being, and harmony amongst their mind, body, and spirit.
What Can Reiki Help With?
If you were to ask a Reiki practitioner what Reiki technique could help, they would tell you that it can help with everything. Although the most common thing that Reiki can help with is treating physical pain, helping clear the mind of worry, and even allowing people to develop a deeper spiritual connection.
All in all, it helps with a large variety of things that have yet to be scientifically proven but have many claims from people saying that it works miracles. Some of the things that Reiki can help with include:
- Aiding in healing and relieving physical pain
- Boosting your mood
- Clearing negative thoughts and worry
- Treating Anxiety
- Increasing motivation & positivity
- Aiding in processing grief and trauma
It even has been claimed by many that it can help plants to grow and thrive. Through Reiki, one woman named Jill Theil grew corn over 16ft (4.9m) tall. It shows that life force energy can indeed be passed through anything living, including plants, to help their overall well-being so they can thrive.
Of course, Reiki isn’t the main way to get plants to thrive. Constant Delights is a great place to find everything from controlling bugs to the best types of plants for your particular situation.
Note: Reiki should never be used instead of taking medical advice and only as something you do in addition to taking medical advice.
Who Can Learn Reiki?
Anyone who wishes to learn and use Reiki is free to do so. However, to perform it, you must learn it from an experienced Reiki practitioner or master.
You should also know that Reiki is not a religion. It is not centered around anything other than your ability to approach the practice with an open mind and allow the universe’s energy to be your tool.
Learn How to Use Reiki
It is best to find an experienced Reiki practitioner or master who knows what they are talking about to learn Reiki. Finding one with qualifications will ensure you go through the training properly.
While you do not need any certificate to practice Reiki, you will need to go through an attunement process that a current practitioner can only do. Through this, they can pass off the power of utilizing healing energy from the universe to you.
You will then go through three or four degrees of training that will allow you to be skilled and confident in using Reiki. This training is also essential even if you only plan on using it on yourself or plants as, without it, you will not be able to do it properly.
The three degrees and what they include are as follows:
- First Degree Training. The beginning stage of training teaches you about Reiki self-care, preparing you to do it for the rest of your life. You will also learn hand placements and complete your attunement, so you are set to practice Reiki.
- Second Degree Training. You learn about distant healing and overcoming the boundaries of time and space so you can use a mental connection with the receiver to offer Reiki healing. This level of training is only needed if you wish to practice with others.
- Third Degree & Mastery. This is completed to become a Reiki master. Typically consists of taking the time to commit to using Reiki and completing an apprenticeship with an experienced practitioner.
Choosing the Right Plant
Once you know how to do Reiki on people and have gone through your attunement process, or as some may call it, initiation process with an experienced practitioner, it is relatively simple to translate this healing technique to use on plants.
From this point, you will choose which plants you want to do Reiki on and follow the steps below:
- Before planting, you can complete Reiki on the seed of the plant. To do this, hold the seed in your hands and focus your energy on the growth and life that this plant will soon have. Utilize your learnings from doing Reiki on people to imagine and visualize growth for this seed. After this, it is beneficial to continue doing Reiki on the planted seed to promote growth.
- If the plant is planted, or once it starts growing, completing Reiki on these plants, you can touch or hold the pot or hover your hands over the plant’s leaves. When doing this, you want to focus on and visualize the plant’s best possible outcome, whether just staying alive or growing extremely tall.
- You can also water the plants with your hands in the stream of water as a way to provide them with more energy.
- If you are trying to get cut flowers to last longer, trim the stems and hold the stalks in your hand for a few moments. You will channel energy into the stem, allowing water to rise to the petals providing longer life.
There are plenty of ways you can utilize Reiki’s healing properties to aid in your plant’s growth and ensure they thrive for a long time.
As long as you have gone through the attunement process that allows you to utilize the universal life force energy and visualize the plant’s growth and flourishment, they are sure to thrive more than they would have without the healing energy of Reiki.
