What Reiki Can Do
Reiki works with the energetic, physical and emotional aspects of an individual (animal, plant, space or situation) to address imbalances on all levels – body, mind and spirit. Reasons you may want to experience a Reiki session:
• General balancing
• Clearing emotional blocks
• Physical pain
• Increasing clarity
• Facing life challenges
*The healing energy is your own and goes where it is needed. It is a benevolent energy.
Reiki is holistic in its approach and works on both the symptoms experienced by an individual or animal,
as well as the root cause of the imbalance. It focuses your energy to go where your body-mind needs it to go, how it needs to go, when and for how long your innate wisdom deems necessary. Reiki helps to restore the body’s natural ability to heal and create balance.
How to know if Reiki is right for you
If you have a nagging feeling that something in your life, body or mind is out of balance, or feel like you are struggling within yourself and your environment, Reiki may be for you!
The fact that you are reading this may be the sign that your ready for healing and to experience the growth Reiki can offer.
What to expect during a session
A Reiki session is typically very relaxing for the client. The practitioner and client chat (or complete a form) to provide an idea of the intention for the session (area or issues to be addressed) and help to monitor progress over sessions.
Once any questions have been answered, the client lays down in a comfortable position on the back,
fully clothed, and relaxes. During the session, the practitioner places their hands above various parts of the client's body, being guided by Reiki’s sequential positions and client's body-mind.
You may experience sensations (sights, sounds, smells, tingles or heat) or nothing at all. There is no "typical" way to experience the healing energy. At the end of the session, the client and practitioner can discuss the experience together for maximum benefit (this is completely up to the client).
Typically, I do remote Reiki, especially when working with animals. The process can allow for deeper relaxation as you/the animal is in a familiar surrounding. It simply needs to be a quiet place where you will not be interrupted for 60 minutes (typical session length).
I do recommend drinking plenty of filtered water after a session and will provide you with any insights, suggestions and thoughts when we are done (typically written and then we can follow-up with a call as needed).
For animals, the process is very similar to a person's remote/distance session and I strongly encourage clients to provide 24-hour access to clean water after a session. Again, I will provide insights and answer questions to help you support your pet.
While what I do is based on Dr. Usui's core Reiki principles, it may not be the same as a session you've had with another practitioner as we all work with how we are guided by your energy and our intuition.
