Reiki Practitioner and What to Expect
When searching for a Reiki practitioner you want to make sure you have the most information possible. Each Reiki session is different for each person. A Reiki Master is also a Reiki practitioner. Reiki is a spiritual healing art of Japanese origin. Reiki is spiritually guided life force energy, and a Reiki practitioner can help you restore life energy.
Reiki is a non-invasive healing technique that is applied through light touch or hands over the body by a Reiki practitioner to promote whole-body healing. On a spiritual level, Reiki can be defined as the channeling of Divine Energy, which comes from a Higher Power. The Japanese technique of using Reiki for healing the body, mind and spirit draws on life force energy through touch, the laying on of hands. The Reiki Master receives the enhanced potential for healing and wisdom that comes from Reiki energy by using the teachings to achieve a higher level of consciousness. One of the greatest joys of Reiki Mastership is teaching Reiki to others, becoming a Reiki practitioner.
While Reiki sessions usually follow a standard protocol, they can be varied by client. Sessions usually last from 30 minutes to 90 minutes with most sessions lasting 60 minutes. It is up to the client and the Reiki practitioner how the session goes and what is involved. Reiki can be administered by anyone who has training. While a quiet place is preferable, Reiki can be done anywhere, no matter what else is happening around or directly to the recipient. Moments of touch from a Reiki practitioner can bring comfort in a minor or emergency situation. It is highly effective for improving personal relationships and human interactions and is extremely beneficial for relieving worry and anxiety, replacing negative emotions with a sense of safety and contentment. It also spontaneously provides guidance in all areas of a person’s life.
To make sure that you have the best possible experience, take the time to find and choose a knowledgeable and educated Reiki practitioner. A student with Reiki II for a minimum of 6 months is eligible to take the Reiki Master course so make sure you are looking for certifications. Only Reiki Masters teach and can initiate new Reiki Masters. You’ll want someone who clearly describes the process and how he or she structures the session, so you have an idea of what to expect. Professional Reiki practitioners have a dedicated space or are experienced in creating that space when making house calls. The practitioner will explain the process and ask if you have any specific needs. To start the session the Reiki practitioner will lay their hands on you lightly and channel healing energy into you by touch. It is a non-invasive, non-physical, healing technique. The experience of Reiki is subjective, changeable, and sometimes very subtle. Some experiences are subtle pulsations where the practitioner’s hands are placed or cascading waves throughout the body. Some report a Reiki practitioners hands feeling cool or warm to the touch due to the flow of energy. Receiving Reiki is a wonderfully passive experience. Although people typically leave a Reiki session feeling refreshed, sometimes they notice feeling more tired than usual. This is not viewed as a negative reaction, but rather as the body’s natural healing response.
