Reiki attunement experiences vary from healer to healer. A feeling of warmth or softness pervades some, while others have an extreme reaction. Anything between peace and intensity could happen — and has been reported — during the initiation ritual. During the Reiki session, clients can feel waves of subtle energy that move smoothly through their body.
Others may experience warmth or coldness in the practitioner's hands and may even see comforting colors or visions. While these are normal responses, it is also completely common to “feel nothing during the session, but still be left with a feeling of deep relaxation, general well-being and inner peace. What's important to remember is that Reiki works on all levels, so even if there isn't a physical sensation, the energy could be working on a deep emotional or spiritual level. For some people, treatments are sometimes very strong.
They can feel intense heat in the practitioner's hands, see colored lights, enter and leave consciousness. And on other occasions, that same person may feel that the treatment is gentle and gentle. When you no longer feel Reiki flowing from your palms, your first impulse may be to move to the next hand position, but wait. You should look for a professional who feels right for you and feel free to call or email them with any questions you may have prior to the session.
It's not uncommon for people to see some colors or feel some warmth, tingling, pulsation, or pressure in various areas of the body. If you routinely feel tired after giving Reiki to another person, this is an indication that you need to focus on self-treatment for a while. For example, your hands may be placed on the person's throat, but the person will feel a trickle of energy running down one or both legs. Whenever you feel an excess of energy accumulating in your body, you can take advantage of it by infusing inanimate objects with Reiki.
However, there may be situations where your hands may feel that they really sink deep into the body while you give Reiki. Empaths need to learn that the ability to “take on” or “feel” another person's pain or emotions is best used as a diagnostic tool. When treating people with serious illnesses, you may feel a powerful pull from Reiki energies in your neck, shoulders, and arms as well. After taking care of your own needs, you'll feel better and better able to share Reiki with others.
While some people often seem to notice that a lot happens when they receive treatment, there are also people who feel very little or nothing when they receive Reiki treatment, regardless of who they receive treatment from. They don't mean anything in terms of whether an empowerment has worked or how well it has worked, because empowerments always work, no matter what the student feels or doesn't feel. If you feel that your hands are attached to your body, this type of deeper etheric healing is likely taking place. The fact that you can feel Reiki flowing, whether you are giving or receiving it, is a verification that energy is being welcomed.
