I resisted getting reiki certifications for so long. It felt inauthentic because I knew the energy I channeled was more than *just* Usui reiki. (Usui Reiki is a specific frequency, just like any other energy or reiki flavor)
I’m going back through and completing my course work after having attunements last year. I’m looking forward to working with reiki more and using its softer, subtler energy to buffer the intensity of cosmic + galactic energies.
What happens during an in-person Reiki session?
Reiki is best held in a peaceful setting, but it can be carried out anywhere. The patient will sit in a comfortable chair or lie on a table, fully clothed. There may or may not be music, depending on the patient’s preference.
The practitioner places their hands lightly on or over specific areas of the head, limbs, and torso using different hand shapes, for between 2 and 5 minutes. The hands can be placed over 20 different areas of the body.
If there is a particular injury, such as a burn, the hands may be held just above the wound.
While the practitioner holds their hands lightly on or over the body, the transfer of energy takes place. During this time, the practitioner’s hands may be warm and tingling. Each hand position is held until the practitioner senses that the energy has stopped flowing.
When the practitioner feels that the heat, or energy, in their hands has abated, they will remove their hands and may place them over a different area of the body.
During your in person session
There will be a massage table, music, blankets, crystals, appropriate lighting, and a serene space for you to relax and sink into receiving healing reiki energy. There are also aromatherapy and vibrational sound add ons as well.
All appointments will take place at the Bad Wolf Boudoir photography studio near League City. No pictures will be taken during our session, as I share the space with the photography studio. The address will be sent with your confirmation email after payment is received.
Distance Reiki :
Having a distance reiki session can be just as effective as experiencing one in person. Some clients who have tried both say they prefer the distance sessions because they were less distracted by the physical touch and the unfamiliar sounds from the outside environment. If you are considering having a Distance Reiki Session, here are a few steps you can take to get the most from your session.
The Reiki energy “works” regardless of where you are located since it transcends time and physical space. Having a session in the comfort of your own home can often times be more relaxing than going to an office.
Wherever you are in the world, you can follow these steps to help you prepare to receive the healing energy.
- Choose a room that has a comfortable place to lay down. I generally recommend the couch or a yoga mat on the floor with blankets. You could choose your bed, but the tendency may be to fall asleep since that is what you are used to doing in that space! You want it to be a place where you feel comfortable, relaxed, safe, and free from distraction.
- Use White Sage or Palo Santo to clear the energy in your space. Light the bundle or piece of wood until it catches a flame. Quickly extinguish the flame and motion the smoke counterclockwise throughout the room. You may want to have a window cracked for this part!
- Have any crystals or items that you feel connected nearby. Crystals are beautiful gifts from the Earth that support us by holding different vibrations. If you don’t have any crystals, you can use any object that you feel spiritually connected to (think candles, jewelry, small statues, pictures…)
- Have your phone with earbuds or headphones ready. That way when I call you won’t be scrambling to find them!
- Begin following your breath. Any time I enter into meditation, I inhale and exhale through my nose. For me, this starts to draw my focus inward.
I hope these steps are helpful in preparing for your Distance Reiki Session! I look forward to holding space for you soon.
