“My first Reiki session felt like I was enveloped in a blanket of love.”
– Karla, Big Island, Hawaii
Are you ready to experience a sense of deep calm and relaxation? Most likely your experience will be one of tranquility. Some recipients report feeling unique sensations, waves of energy moving through their body, others report having enlightening visions and some may demonstrate keen emotional releases during and after their session. Others fall in to a deep slumber and yet others describe a sense of inner peace, a feeling of safety and some may not be aware of anything at all.
Your experience will typically last between one and two hours depending on the length of the appointment you reserve. It is best to wear comfortable clothing and refrain from eating at least 30 minutes prior to your appointment. While lying down with clothes on, initially I will ask you to take a few deep breaths to enhance a state of relaxation.
I may begin by gently placing my hands in a still position on or off your body (near your body with no direct contact) or I may begin with my hands in motion as I take a preliminary body scan. If my hands are still, I will likely spend a number of moments in each position as I move over various areas (such as the top of your head, over your eyes, on your belly, over your heart). Slowly moving from one area to the next, I will assess your bio-field before proceeding to clear and balance your energy field. All you need to do is relax and breathe normally; the energy will flow where it is most essential. No personal energy is drawn or drained from me, instead I am merely a conduit through whom energy flows.
You may feel warmth emanating from my hands, your body may tingle slightly, you may even have surges of emotions and memories, or you may feel so relaxed that you fall asleep. However, you may feel nothing; but after the session is over, you may notice that you are calmer or more centered than before. Universal Life Force Energy is gentle, yet very profound; it will flow to the parts of your emotional or physical body that are most receptive to it.
Results are sometimes immediate and sometimes the healing is gradual. Individual experiences will differ greatly from person to person and session to session. The subtle healing energy will often take a person deeper than they have ever gone before. Some report immediate relief from chronic conditions. Another person may notice a definite shift coinciding with the healing and his/her health will steadily improve. Some report temporary discomfort as energy blockages are released and others enjoy a feeling of lightness and relief as the energy field is liberated. Occasionally, a person may experience an acceleration of the healing process and his/her symptoms may intensify for a brief time. When this happens, the recovery period of the illness is usually shortened. Most often, the client feels relaxed, content and peaceful following a treatment. Regardless, it is always helpful to recognize the underlying healing; if there is a disturbance at any level of the energy field, it has the potential to manifest physically if left unchecked. Energy healing may pre-empty an illness or injury by strengthening the weakened area and supporting and boosting the overall energy system.
Universal Life Force Energy will clear the chakras, allowing the energy to flow freely, facilitating the body’s natural balance. Remember to keep an open mind even if you are not sure of the benefits that energy healing can have for you. If a person is closed to the idea, it may block the flow of energy.
