Reiki during pregnancy: useful information on benefits and safety

Reiki is a popular form of Alternative Medicine. This article provides an overview of basic principles of Reiki, its practices during pregnancy with special regards to the safety and benefits.

This article has been written by Katarzyna Jablonska. She is an Essenian Master (Teaching Level 1) and the Reiki Master (Teaching) from the Amber School of Energetic Healings. She is the Leader of the Pleiadian Healing Circle in the UK.

What is Reiki?

Reiki is the Universal Life Healing Energy, it flows through every living thing. It comes from the big source of female-male energy, which we call Mother/Father God. This natural system of healing was put back on Earth by Master Mikao Usui in the early 20th century.

Eastern natural medicine has worked with this energy thousands of years before, recognising its flow through all living things.

Reiki practitioners don’t heal, when they are initiated to Reiki correctly, they become channels for this Universal Life Healing Energy, which flows into their head and out through their hands.

In traditional Reiki, the healer holds the loving, caring, healing intention throughout the session, whilst gently placing their hands on the client.

It is a non-invasive complementary therapy that supports conventional medicine or can be used alone but it is not a replacement for traditional medication or treatments.

Reiki is easily adapted to most medical conditions and is safe for children, pregnant women, surgical patients, the frail and the elderly. It works effectively alongside conventional healthcare and natural remedies, supporting recovery, bringing emotional balance, mental clarity, and deep relaxation – a sense of peace, strength and lightness.

It works in all areas – strengthens the body, eliminates blockages, works detoxifying and gently restores our body’s natural harmony, well-being and the intelligent immune system bringing our consciousness to a higher level.

Is Reiki safe during pregnancy?

Yes, Reiki is safe during the pregnancy, and through its calming and relaxing effects on the mother, it helps create a loving and balanced space for the child to grow. Reiki heals to the point of our Karma – that is what we have chosen for ourselves to learn and experience during this life, to put back in balance things we have inflicted on other people through our wrong choices in other lives.

Therefore, any physical, emotional or mental problems that you or your baby have chosen for this life, Reiki won’t change. But it might be, that at the right time, there will be Essenian Healings or Essenian Healing Journeys or Pleiadian Healings, possible for you or your child to receive, that will address some of the karma pieces that cause you suffering or distress.


Because we are going through a global transformation of energy and consciousness on Earth from the 3rd dimensional to the 5th dimensional Energy, the negative feelings and experiences become more perceivable in our daily life. They are brought to our awareness, as opportunities, to do something about them if we choose to.

The holy Essenian Healing methods are not a religion but are 5th-dimensional healing techniques and come from the highest Energy Source, Mother/Father God, which we are all part of.

Reiki can be used throughout the pregnancy, to ease every stage of it, physically and emotionally, making the journey into motherhood lighter and more heartwarming. You can read some testimonials here.

Is it safe to receive Reiki Initiation during pregnancy?

Yes, absolutely, from the moment of conception until the birth of the child it is safe to receive Reiki Initiation, it is only positive energy.

The correct Reiki Initiation raises up your energy, which is so important at this time when we go through a global transformation on Earth from the 3rd dimensional to the 5th dimensional Energy.

You also become a channel for this Universal Life Healing Energy, and whenever you put your hands on your belly, you give Reiki to yourself and your baby. The Esoteric Knowledge that we teach with the Reiki Initiations at The Amber School of Energetic Healings, raises your consciousness and helps you understand the reasons for your life experience (karma).

Through this knowledge and with Reiki, you have the ability to better deal with physical and emotional problems, difficult life situations and day-to-day challenges. You can read more about it here.

When you are initiated to Reiki whilst pregnant, is your baby also initiated?

No, your baby is not initiated, because he or she is a separate soul that you may bring into this world, but your Reiki Initiation is always something really positive for your child too.

This knowledge has been passed on by Master Mikao Usui through channeling with Lisa Lux (highly claircognizant and clairsentientience spiritual Teacher) and Henk Mulder (clairvoyant on a very high level) from The Academy of the 13 Essenian Arts of Healing.

Reiki Initiation for the fathers-to-be, partners and other family members

Everyone can receive Reiki Initiation, which when performed correctly raises your personal energy and you also become a channel for this Universal Life Healing Energy. Then, whenever you put your hands on yourself or others, Reiki flows.

You can put your Reiki hands on your pregnant partner or family member, to ease her pain, fatigue or anxiety. And it helps you to relax and adjust to the new situation too. Reiki exchange between a couple can be a loving and deeply bonding experience.

By incorporating Reiki into your daily life, naturally the whole family’s experience can improve, and you can put your hands on any painful places, also on physical injuries, when your baby starts taking its first steps.

Do we need an Initiation to be able to use Reiki?

Yes, we need to be initiated by a Reiki Master Teacher, who has been attuned correctly themselves. Reiki is a very high, holy Life Healing Energy and to be able to reach that level our energy and consciousness need to be raised.

We can not do this alone, a Reiki Master needs to be there for us to take us through those stages. This is the way Master Usui initiated his students. It is an important moment in every person’s life when we feel we are reconnecting with our true self and the Holy Source that people call Mother/Father God.

We are always guided to the type of Reiki, as there are many types of it now – over the last 100 years people modified the original way Master Mikao Usui handed over. As a result, some people haven’t received a full Initiation, because of this they couldn’t receive nor pass on the Reiki Energy for 100%.

The Reiki we give at the Amber School of Energetic Healings is from Ryoho, the original Reiki and there are many others on the planet who also perform the original Reiki method of Master Mikao Usui in the correct way.
