The time you spend receiving Reiki I will also receive Reiki because it comes through the Reiki practitioner, NOT FROM. Many believe it is something I impose on them, which it is not.
During your time I will move my hands to different parts of your body as a way to direct the energy. At times my hands will lie on your body, and other times they’ll hover above your body. You may feel a sensation of heat coming from my hands. This feeling is normal, but if it’s uncomfortable for you, please tell me. (Don’t worry, I will remind you as we start.)
The Reiki session is a delicious experience during which you can close your eyes and know that you have an hour of freedom. The telephone, traffic, e-mails, or the doorbell won’t disturb you.
You may drift off into a dreamlike state or even fall asleep. Don’t worry if you do. You’re supposed to be relaxing, so whatever you do is right for you. Try not to judge yourself or any thoughts you might have. Just let it all flow. (But just so you know, my clients have always fallen asleep.)
Each person experiences Reiki in his or her own way. You may feel tingles or shivers during Reiki. Energy waves are passing through your body, and everyone experiences what this feels like differently.
Some other sensations you may experience during the Reiki session:
Cold or hot temperature change
Crying or laughing
Sighing or coughing
Stomach gurgling or feet or hands twitching
Involuntary body movement
Dreamlike state or sleep state of relaxation
Seeing images or colours or hearing music
Your intuition is heightened during a Reiki session, which is like being in the state between waking and sleeping. You may get a fleeting image or memory. You may get insights into some long-standing problems, similar to what you might experience during meditation or daydreaming.
There is no right or wrong, or good or bad, in anything you feel during the Reiki session.
Please just let yourself be!
You’ll know the session is ending when I tap you on your shoulder and tell you,
“Take your time getting up from the table.”
Don’t rush off the table. Just as you might take a little time when you wake up in the morning before hopping out of bed, you need a little time now. You may feel lightheaded or woozy, so you want to go slowly to avoid tripping over your feet.
