And before we get started today, please take a few minutes and subscribe and leave us a five star rating and review. Every review helps us rank and we’re just so thankful that you’re here.
So this episode is sponsored by the Next Level Fertility program, and that’s where we make babies with Reiki. We’ll walk you through with a especially curated healing plan to optimize your fertility and remove all blockages from your fertility. And you can go ahead and check out on the show notes how to apply for that program.
So today we’re talking about getting the most out of Reiki tips from maximizing the benefits of an energy healing session. This is super important and a very common question. So basically, with this, We need to decide what kind of session you having are you having in-person and virtual. So most of these tips can be applied to both.
It’s very important that we start with who you’re choosing to be your reiki master or reiki practitioner, you need to feel comfortable with them. You need to feel safe with them. They need to be providing you a service that’s gonna uplift you and not make you stressed out. So make sure that you are vibing with your Wiki master.
Or practitioner. So it’s really important to make sure that if it’s in person, where’s the location of their office? What is their room like? What is their table feel like? Is there a table warmer is usually if it’s in person, then it’s done on a massage table. Do you feel safe in their presence? What is the feeling in the, you know, ambiance of their room?
A lot of reiki rooms are really beautiful. I do all of mine over Zoom. So are you getting a distance Reiki session done? What is that like? Is it done over the phone? A lot of people do reiki over the phone or they’ll call you at the start of the session, hang up, do reiki, and then call you at the. I don’t like that.
I just, I, I never did. I like it live. I also like in-person reiki. I get reiki done almost every six weeks now, done by a reiki master who was also my teacher and helped me conceive all. And basically I like in-person and I have also gotten done virtually. I also have a, Reiki student that we do Reiki exchanges with, and I love receiving reiki from her too.
So virtually you need to make sure that you are in a quiet space, that puppies are put away, that you, it’s comfortable and you wanna have everything that you want with you. Maybe your crystals or journal, maybe a little snack, definitely a water bottle. Any essential oils you may want. I, at a minimum, I need a water bottle, some crystals and a blanket.
and I usually am doing reiki in my bed. If I’m doing virtual or at my desk here, I feel very comfortable. So setting the place where you’re gonna receive reiki is also very important. The next is the importance of having an open mind and a willingness to let it unfold. However, the experience is opposed to unfold.
Meaning like if you see colors, if you get chills, what’s the outcome? How are you gonna feel after? Detach from that and let the experience unfold. When I set the intention for this session, are you coming in to feel better, to feel more grounded, to gain clarity around a situation, to heal? Or a lot of people say, I don’t feel like myself.
I know. I feel off. I need guidance, or I just need a general boost, or I’m coming in with the intention. That I want to clear out blockages for my womb. I want to conceive or I have, I’m preparing for birth and I wanna remove all the obstacles I can energetically out of my way so I can have the best birth experience.
A lot of people are postpartum. I treat fertility through postpartum and I’m really low energy, which is very typical in postpartum cuz you’re exhausted and you are wanting to. Like you again, get back to yourself. So Reiki can help you feel grounded and restore and restore that depleted energy. To balance you out.
The next thing is understanding what you want from the practitioner in the session, and I think it’s really important to set that up immediately. Understanding are you gonna be talking, how do you want them to communicate with you during the session if they have some reiki masters or practitioners or mediums?
For me, when I did in-person reiki, I had a notepad and anything that I got, I would take the moment to write down. If I worked and I would take note of the chakra scan, so I would do like open clothes. I would scan all sub my main chakras and I would take note of any imbalances. That’s how I, most of the time, some people were like, if you feel something, I wanna know when you’re doing it.
So I, is this a quiet session? Like even like, you know, like a hair appointment. You can ask like, I want a quiet appointment. I want a silent appointment. Some people want to know they want a quiet, safe, relaxing space, or they’re, sometimes people are coming for an experience and they want to know, so like if you’re connecting with the other side, or if their spirit guides are stepping forward, they’re gonna wanna.
And that’s activating to them. So what kind of experience do you wanna, you wanna have relaxing and what does relaxing look for you? Or is this an activating spiritual experience? And what does that look like to you? Communicate that with your practitioner. Also, the practitioner might have, like, I don’t really talk like my reiki master.
She’s like, you need to be quiet. Shh. I’m a talker. Okay. Obviously cuz I’m a podcaster, I’m a talker. So, um, setting the intention and how you are going to move through the session. If you are in pain, you need to communicate with that. The reiki masters are not psychics and if there’s any skepticism or like doubt, if this works.
It’s a door and nobody needs to be challenged. If you don’t know what reiki is, there’s Google. If you don’t know what energy healing is, there’s Google. You can also certainly ask questions, but it’s not on the practitioner to give you an encyclopedia or a Google, you know, lesson inside of your treatment session.
It’s, and some people might hate me for that, but the practitioner should have the heart of a teacher, but it’s not. It’s not the intention of the session. You’re coming for healing. We’re not teaching you reiki in that healing appointment. So come ready, prepared and open to heal and release whatever is not.
Understand that not everything. May not be revealed to you. A lot of people come in asking for messages and I’m like, well, we are. We’re here for healing. If I get a message, I will share it with you, but I don’t actively go speaking them. Also is understanding that trust your practitioner, their reiki can’t be messed up.
Unless it’s done unethically, but it’s really important to understand their standard of code of conduct and reiki will flow where it needs to go, and your body is meant to heal itself. So Reiki just amplifies that natural ability. It’s also important to make sure you’re hydrated. It’s really, really important to me.
And then what happens is at the end of the session, you need time to integrate the healing energy, so that’s really important to take time to rest the rest of the day or to journal. I wouldn’t go get a Reiki session done and then go to Costco. . I would take it easy. That would be the day, like I would schedule the Reiki session and then I’m like staying home the rest of the day.
I am usually, when I go into Reiki session, I’m releasing a lot, so I’m tired afterwards. Sometimes I’m a little hyper, but I’m still at home. I’m protecting my energy. This is a sacred thing that I done they had done, and I’m going to let my body. Slowly calibrate to this new vibration because every Reiki session will raise your vibration.
Um, you can journal about your experience. I also might call somebody, I have a friend who I, in Spanish, we call it Chisme. So I’ll be like, girlfriend, I got some cheese. May I got some cheese I wanna tell you about experience. And she’s like, what you do? I, I saw a color purple. Or, uh, she all call me and she’s like, I saw Jesus.
I said, did you? So I love talking and processing it with a safe friend, uh, a person that, you know, values and holds space for me. I also recommend that you have follow-up sessions, discuss with your practitioner when you should get Ricky. Again, if it is a particular issue and they’re developing a treatment plan together to tackle and address a certain issue, there might be a certain number of frequency of sessions that you should do together.
Uh, usually the rule of thumb is you’ll let me know when you feel it. Or if we’re doing proactive care that by me in the frequency of every two weeks or once every month, just depends on the issue and the person. So it’s really important to understand maximizing the benefits of an energy healing session or a Reiki session is being open.
Detaching from the outcome, making sure that you’re creating a space in an environment where you can heal in that you feel safe in, and trusting the practitioner. And also making sure you’re mentioning if you’re in any pain or if you’re struggling and setting the intention of what you want from this.
Just communicate, be transparent. And allow this session to unfold the way it’s supposed to. And if you have any questions about what Reiki should look like or the intention, feel free to send me a Instagram direct message or voice note, and we’d love to chat with you.
