During an in-person reiki session, the practitioner will place their hands either on or a few inches away from the client’s body. They will connect to the energy of their clients, help clear blocks, and infuse the body with the energies of love and light. During a distant session, the practitioner will send these energies through time and space.
You may feel some warmth or coolness, tingling, or simply relaxed. Some people may see some colors or visuals. Regardless of whether you notice sensations or not, trust that reiki is flowing for your highest good. There is no need to get too hung up on these sensations. Best is to let go, be open and allow for any healing that needs to occur. Everyone is different and every treatment is different. Additionally, pay attention to how you feel after the Reiki treatment(s). You may sleep better or feel more centered and less triggered.
I personally always guide my clients through a deep guided meditation during the session to help clear the blockages as well.
How can I prepare for my session?
Drink some water. It’s a good idea to avoid alcohol or recreational drugs as they alter your consciousness.
If you’re receiving a distant session, find a comfortable space where you won’t be disturbed.
Set an intention for your session. Who’s presence do you wish to call in? What do you want to heal? What are you ready to release? What are you ready to manifest? This doesn’t have to be an elaborate process. Simply write down the first few things that come to mind.
Trust that you will receive exactly what you need in that moment.
