What to Expect From a Reiki Session

What to expect from a Reiki session

You may have heard about the healing powers of Reiki and wonder what Reiki can do for you and what to expect from a Reiki session.

Reiki is a very safe and gentle form of energy healing. In general, most people feel deeply relaxed after a Reiki session. The following information will help you feel more comfortable about your first Reiki session.

Can Reiki heal my condition?

I get asked all the time if Reiki can heal a specific condition. The short answer is yes, Reiki can heal any condition. Yet, there is no guarantee that it will.

Any condition has the potential to be healed completely and Reiki has helped many with most known conditions. Your body is designed to heal itself if given what it needs. Reiki provides nourishing energy to facilitate your body’s self repair abilities. 

Can you guarantee specific results?

There is no way to know in advanced if your condition, situation or relationship will be healed to your expectations. Reiki practitioners can not predict the healing outcomes you can expect from Reiki.

In fact, Reiki practitioners are taught not to be attached to specific results because Reiki always works for your highest good and most benevolent outcomes. Reiki follows Divine will and your personal will about what healing outcomes you experience. Your personal healing is between you and God or your higher self.

Reiki won’t force a healing that you are not ready for. I have been told by my Reiki guides that the energy of a condition was cleared during the session, but that the client would recreate it in their mind. For whatever reason, they weren’t mentally ready to let it go. And that is okay. The Reiki and your practitioner accept you as you are.

Does Reiki have any side effects?

Reiki never causes harm and doesn’t have any harmful side effects. It has the ability to lift away symptoms by addressing the underlying cause. You may notice symptoms temporarily intensify while your body is healing. This is called a healing crisis. It isn’t common, but it does happen. If you do notice anything becoming more pronounced, trust that it is part of the healing process and will pass. 

For example, when I had my Reiki Master attunements, I noticed that I was very irritated for the next day or two after. That was the Reiki clearing out my mental and emotional bodies. It passed and I felt lighter afterward.

Always follow your internal guidance about what you need after Reiki. You may need extra rest or feel like eating more or less. 

Does the practitioner take on my negative energy?

No, the Reiki has built in protection to keep the practitioner from taking on any of the client’s unwanted energy. The Reiki also keeps you from taking personal energy from the practitioner. You draw the Reiki through the practitioner but not from the practitioner’s personal energy.  After the session is over, your energy is yours and the practitioner’s energy is theirs. 

You can expect to be in a safe and loving sacred space while receiving Reiki.

Will Reiki make me vulnerable to negative energy?

No, the Reiki is love and won’t open you to dark forces. It is high vibrating energy that has built in mechanisms that protect you from unwanted energy. Reiki is love and never causes harm.

Can you tell what is wrong with me?

Reiki practitioners do not diagnose illness or prescribe medicine. The Reiki will go to the underlying cause of your symptoms. You may be told where on your body you were drawing in Reiki more strongly. The Reiki practitioner will not be able to tell you why. For example, your abdomen may be absorbing a lot of Reiki, but the Reiki practitioner can’t tell you that you have gall stones. You may be given practical advice to drink lemon water or take a few minutes of self reflection time each day.

Can I have too much Reiki?

There is never too much Reiki. You are in control of how much Reiki you draw in from the practitioner. Repeat sessions are beneficial. You can receive Reiki from more than one person. The Reiki is always a safe form of energy healing.

Do I have to believe in Reiki for it to work?

No, Reiki works whether you believe in it or not. You only need to be willing to receive the energy for it to work. 

How long will I feel better after a Reiki session?

Everyone is different. You may feel better for a day, a week, a month or years. 

Various factors influence the results you get from a Reiki session and how long they last, such as:

  • Your personal beliefs
  • Divine will
  • Your willingness to change
  • Your receptivity
  • Your nutrition
  • spiritual/life path
  • level of stress in your life

Most people feel very relaxed after a Reiki session. Every Reiki session is unique, but feeling relaxed one thing you can pretty much expect from your Reiki session. Give Reiki a try to fully understand what it will do for you personally.

Energetic Protection with Reiki

Sky, Morning, Lighting, SunlightReiki keeps you from taking on unwanted energy from others. Whether it is purposefully or subconsciously projected towards you.

Purposefully projected energy comes in the form of hexes, curses, psychic attacks, the evil eye and spells.

Unconsciously projected energy usually arrives in the form of judgments, negativity or jealousy. This can come from complete strangers you pass on the street or people you know personally, even your clients.

You may not be aware of others projecting energy towards you. Or you may feel it deeply. The unwanted energy is fear based and can cause you to feel drained. Reiki is love which heals and energizes you.

Can someone really harm you by sending you a curse? Only if you believe or fear that they can. No one has the power to create your reality but you. Other’s can try to project their energy into your field. Unless you give them power over you, you can’t be effected by other’s projections. You get to choose your vibration.

Often, what is really happening if you are feeling under attack from the outside world, is that you are projecting your shadow self onto others. You can read more about healing the shadow self here.

Perhaps you have misused your power in your past. Or you are not comfortable in your personal potential. So you project that power outside yourself and feel it coming back on you.

Whether you believe psychic attacks can harm you or not, the Reiki can help you release unwanted energy. Reiki works no matter what you are believing in the moment. It knows just what you need.

How Reiki helps

Crystal ball inner peace

Reiki can help you from feeling attacked by the outside world by creating a loving shield of protection. This energetic layer will only let love in and only let love out. Any unwanted energy will be deflected and transformed by the Reiki. This leaves your free from external influences energy for you to radiate your unique light.

If you are attuned to Reiki II, you can use the power symbol at the edge of your aura to add extra protection. Otherwise, just imagine the Reiki going to the edge of your aura in any color you wish.

Reiki raises your vibration and fills you with love. This helps you shine your light which positively impacts your surroundings. Your loving vibration imprints on the energy around you and alters the course of your interactions while diffusing and transforming anything less that love. You will feel more like a conscious creator while radiating your loving light.

You can imagine the Reiki shining diamond white light out of your heart chakra. Allow yourself to feel your connection with your unlimited inner being. Using and meditating with Reiki daily will increase your frequency. energy shield

If you are in your loving power, in your center and balance, you won’t be effected by others’ conscious or subconscious projections. You are beyond fear. You are in a loving and pure state.

Reiki can heal your relationship to power. Reiki grows your comfort with being empowered and standing in your expanded state of awareness. It can release the part of yourself that is threatened by your own unlimited potential. In your balanced sovereignty you are in a state of love. You deal wisely with your own gifts. You understand just because you feel unstoppable doesn’t mean you control others.

When you heal your relationship to your personal power you stop attracting others who are uncomfortable with you being powerful.

Karuna Reiki® is especially helpful in healing your relationship with power and your shadow self. It can help you release the part of yourself that is creating the attack.

Remember if you are a Reiki practitioner, the Reiki automatically protects you from absorbing your client’s energy. You may feel their issues, pain and where they need Reiki while giving a session. But when it is over, your energy is yours and theirs is theirs.

If you aren’t attuned to Reiki and you work with clients as a body worker or therapist, I suggest you learn Reiki for this reason alone. It will make you better at what you are already doing, since you won’t be weighted down by your clients’ unwanted energy.

Reiki works both by helping keep your energy clear and protected from others’ energy and keeping your vibration high and in a state of pure love. Your always have the power to choose your vibration and where you place your attention. Reiki shifts you away from fear and anchors you in your love vibration.

In loving light,
