What is Reiki Like?

What is Reiki like? Picture yourself lying on a comfortable massage table. You don't have to discuss or analyze anything. You don't have to do anything. You just have to be open to receive the energy. Just relax and know that whatever is bothering you can be aided by the simple loving, kind, compassionate energy that lives all around us and animates the entire universe.

A warm, soothing energy flows through the other person's hands into you. It feels both calming and energizing at the same time. There is soothing music playing in the background. The energy gives you a sort of tingling sensation, which is pleasant and seems to make you more aware of everything around you.

It seems like you have been here a long time, but only an hour has gone by. Somehow a lot of the things you were stressing about when you came in are no longer distracting you from consciousness. In fact, solutions to problems may be coming to mind. Some of these solutions include simply being more patient with others, or radiating out a feeling of compassion toward them, rather than arguing with them. Reiki can encourage a person to let go of fear, anxiety and conflicted feelings in favor of projecting some of that love, kindness and compassion you are receiving out to other people.

Pains and discomforts may drift away as a result of a Reiki session. A feeling of love and clear thinking will be present long after the session has ended. A person can continue these feelings by following the energetic flow that they sense. Additional sessions can continue to renew these feelings. Fresh new perspectives will occur to you that will ease your comfort in your physical, mental, spiritual and emotional bodies.
