Wondering how to prepare for your Reiki session?
Start by setting an intention.
Maybe you know why you want a Reiki session, maybe you don't. If you know what you need, i.e. pain relief, a surge of energy, more balance in your life, clarity around a situation then take a few minutes to ask the Source, God, the Universe (names don't matter, you know) to allow your session to fulfill your wish(es).
Be good to your body.
Try to eat healthy foods and refrain from the use of substances (alcohol/drugs) at least 48 hours prior to your session. If you're taking medication, please continue to do so. Healthy foods provide your body with the energy it needs. Drugs and alcohol depress the flow of energy in you and so using/consuming before a Reiki session is counterproductive.
Drink plenty of water.
It's a good idea to water down before your session begins and that goes for live and distance sessions. Water cleanses your body creating a smooth channel. When you're hydrated it's easy for the energy to flow easily throughout your energy field and your body.
If you purchased a live session, dress comfortably.
Live sessions take place in the comfort of studio or your home. You will be asked to relax, full clothed (sans shoes), on a massage table for the amount of time you chose. It doesn't matter what you wear as long as whatever you're wearing isn't bothering you in any way.
If you purchased a distance session, enjoy.
Distance sessions take place when you're ready. I flow the energy to you, you find the time and space to receive the flow. I usually recommend that you lie down and relax, but you can call the flow through at any time or place.
Whatever you plan to do, plan to relax.
How many times have you gone through the first ten or fifteen minutes of a massage on edge? I hate when that happens. It really doesn't matter if you've purchased a live or distance session, relaxing is key. Plus, it's just more enjoyable that way.
Ground your energy.
If you're new to energy healing know this: energy is real and it's powerful. Grounding your energy is essential to keeping your feet on the ground and your head out of the clouds. What's the problem with having our head in the clouds? Headaches, for one. How can you ground? The easiest way is to get outside and stop your feet on the ground. You can also touch dirt. If neither one of those options sound great to you, try a grounding meditation (there are a million on Youtube).
And by that I mean stay open to whatever flows your way. Aside from your own experience receiving the energy I will share any intuitive guidance that flows through me during your live or remote session. If we are together this guidance may come by means of a conversation about a seemingly random thing that actually has great meaning for you. I never quite understand the information that flows through, but that won't be the case for you. If you have questions, ask. If you want to talk, please do. If you don't want to talk, don't. This is your Reiki session…as long as you're open to the energy the energy is open to you.
If you scheduled a live session...
Please arrive on time. I set aside 60 minutes for your session. Most sessions do not last the full 60 minutes and there is time for a brief discussion after. If you're late there is less time available for you.
