Reiki has a number of exercises that can help you regain your energies and of course the lost sleep too.
If you are doing or have done the First degree in Reiki then you will be familiar with this exercise. However, even if you are a newcomer to Reiki you can go ahead and do it yourself! TO REPLENISH YOUR ENERGY
All that you need is a few minutes at any time of the day. Any place will do, so charge your energy with this new refreshment.
You can do this sitting or lying down. Just find a comfortable place. Now close your eyes and relax.
Now feel the tension in you 'solar plexus chakra' or the 'third chakra' or in simple terms the 'stomach'. Place your one hand just above the stomach or over the chakra.
Now place your other hand just below the first one.
Thus it should fall on the stomach and just below the solar plexus chakra.
Now all you need to do is relax your hands and fingers.
Let your mind rest or drift, as it wants to.
Stay in this position for 10 - 15 minutes. You might even drift into a semi sleep state.
Open your eyes slowly and stretch yourself.
When you get up you will feel full of energy and revitalized.
You can now go ahead with your work with new found zeal and energy.
FOR BETTER SLEEP
If you have problems sleeping, then this is an ideal self-help exercise for you.
Whether it is your afternoon siesta or night sleep lie down on your back or on your side whichever is comfortable.
Now place one hand on your forehead and one on your stomach.

Stay in this position for at least 10 minutes and more if you wish to.
You will soon find yourself drifting off to a deep sleep with a relaxed feeling.
If you do this exercise regularly, you will find that it is very effective in helping you get a good night's sleep.
So take some time out and make these exercises a part of your daily routine.
