During the session
Have an open mind and set the intention to receive the reiki energy being sent to you.
Close your eyes, bring your attention to your music and/or breathing.
If your mind is wandering to other things, you feel a heaviness in your body, or emotions come up during the treatment bring your attention to your breathing. Do deep breaths into your belly. Inhaling through your nose and exhaling through your mouth
What to do if disturbed during the session
Don’t worry if you get interrupted during our session, you will still receive the healing benefits. Return your mind to the session as soon as you can.
What you may feel during the treatment
Each time you have a treatment the experience can be different depending on what is going on with you at the time of receiving the reiki energy.
What other people have experienced from their sessions include:
• feeling relaxed, calm
• falling asleep and feeling rested on wakening
(it is completely fine to fall asleep during a treatment, your body may need the rest)
• sensations of hot and/or cold
• sensations of tingling
• body twitching (it is releasing stuck energy from the body)
• memories, images, colours appear in the mind
• feeling like “nothing happened”. This is normal as the effects of a reiki treatment sometimes are subtle and may not be noticed until later.
