A Reiki session is held privately with the client lying on a massage table fully clothed. A first session typically begins by filling out a client intake form after which we discuss your intentions for the session. This is key for both the healing facilitator and the client because energy follows thought and thought follows intention. Once I get a sense of this, we begin the session which lasts approximately an hour. I may be led to do some energetic clearing and/or call upon various shamanic tools for assistance, such as the drum, rattle, crystals or stones. Sometimes I use tuning forks at the end of a session which further creates a balancing harmonic of the energy field. At the end of the session, we spend another 15 minutes or so discussing impressions.
The treatment itself feels like a wonderful glowing radiance flowing through you and around you. One may feel heat, tingling or a deep sense of relaxation and peace. Because Reiki treats the whole person - body, mind and spirit, there are no limitations for uses and purposes. In addition to assisting us with physical healing, Reiki is also a powerful tool to help our higher selves find our divine purpose in life. It keeps us climbing the spiritual ladder and only works towards our highest good. No two sessions are ever the same just as no two people are the same. In my experience, I have seen tremendous results for those suffering from PTSD, grief and side effects caused by radiation and chemotherapy. Reiki comes highly recommended for those suffering pain where they may have had metal rods or plates implanted in their bodies. Once the vibration of that metal becomes attuned to your own vibration, the pain usually disappears altogether. This non-invasive technique is finding it's value to support those currently being treated in the medical world as Reiki is now being offered to patients in many hospitals around the Boston and New England area. LIkewise, Reiki is also a very powerful tool for the addiction release process.
So you see, its purpose serves everything and anything! It can be used on pets, plants and even sent long distance for healing benefits to those who may live far away. When we open that door to healing, we open ourselves up to the possibility that we can find solutions to our life problems and heal the issues of our mind, body and spirit, be they from the past, present or even future!
What might you do to prepare for a reiki session? It is helpful to be mindful of your intentions; bringing into your conscious awareness, what aspect of your life you intend to shift and bring healing harmony to. Dress comfortably, in loose fitting clothes. Since Reiki is a spiritual healing art form, it is considered sacred in nature; therefore, one should abstain from drugs and alcohol prior to a session.
