How Does Reiki Work And What Happens In A Session?

Reiki appears woo woo because the energy is invisible, but the benefits are tangible.

Reiki is Universal Source energy that is gentle and healing. A reiki practitioner or master directs the energy around him or herself into a desired person, place, or thing. This is done in-person or during a distance session.

During a session, reiki energy relaxes the central nervous system (brain, spinal cord, optic nerves, digestive system, and nerve endings) and circulates through the cells of the bones, blood, muscles, and skin. People tend to fall asleep and enter the dream state during a reiki session.

The longer the reiki session the more one will experience the following benefits.

  • Relaxed mind and body.
  • Reduced stress.
  • Sharper mental focus.
  • Stronger concentration.
  • Better receptivity to intuition.
  • Improved energy.
  • Increased creativity.
  • Better sleep.
  • Increased natural ability to heal.
  • Reduced pain.

Distance sessions can be scheduled when a person can sit or lie down without being disturbed. If not, it is best to spend the day of the reiki session being less busy than usual. The effects will be felt after falling asleep for the evening. The next morning will be met with better energy and focus.

An in-person or distance reiki session is a great incentive for having a lazy day because it induces peace of mind. Following that up by doing nothing or something fun increases the benefits of reiki.

21-Day Reiki Chakra Cleanse
Holistic Health

What Is A 21 Day Reiki Cleanse?

The 21-day reiki cleanse is a deep cleanse on all levels – mental, emotional, physical and spiritual. It begins after a reiki attunement and involves the seven major chakras, as well as the organs associated with them. The 21-day reiki cleanse starts with the root chakra working its way to the crown. This process repeats on Day 8 then again on Day 15.

Symptoms vary by individual and depend on what is healing. It can be intense for some, and mild for others. The 21-day reiki cleanse symptoms are similar to the side effects of fasting.

  • Strong emotions and/or mood swings.
  • Change in libido.
  • Food cravings or aversions.
  • Fever, cold or flu
  • Nausea, diarrhea, vomiting.
  • Fatigue, restlessness.
  • Pains, for instance joint or muscular pain.
  • Skin reactions like acne, hives, itching, rashes, etc.
  • Change in sleep patterns.
  • Vivid and/or recurring dreams.

The key is to be gentle with yourself during the 21-day reiki cleanse. Drink plenty of water and herbal tea. Increase your intake of fruit and dark leafy greens. Listen to soft music, spend time outdoors, rest, and engage in creative projects like drawing and painting.

Most importantly, give yourself reiki every day during the 21-day reiki cleanse. Self-reiki calms the mind and relaxes the body so it can heal.

Reduce things that are agitating.

  • The news and social media.
  • Binge-watching television.
  • Spending time with unsupportive and negative individuals.
  • Alcohol
  • White sugar
  • White flour
  • Processed foods

Symptoms may subside after the 21-day reiki cleanse, but the healing continues. Self-reiki everyday, even for five minutes, will balance mind and body.

The Four Levels of Healing Mind, Body and Spirit

There are four levels of healing: physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. One can experience one or all during a healing, which can take place during the following activities:

  • Reiki session (private and distance)
  • Affirmations
  • Chanting
  • Singing
  • Dancing
  • Praying
  • Meditating
  • Journaling
  • Dreaming
  • Drinking herbal infusions
  • Sound healing
  • Gemstone healing
  • Spending time outdoors
  • Therapy
  • Reading spiritual materials
  • Spending time with positive people

You can combine many of these activities, like chanting affirmations while outdoors; meditating with gemstones; praying over an herbal infusion; or working with a therapist who gives reiki as part of the appointment. Below is how healing looks on each level.

Physical
This type of healing is related to the physical body. The health of bones, blood, muscles, tendons, joints, skin, hair, nails, etc., can improve. Physical healing is also related to the root chakra. Issues with safety, prosperity and abundance can shift, too.

Emotional
Related to the sacral chakra, emotional healing takes place in the form of healthier boundaries between you and food, people and ideas. You feel worthy of living a better life. Your intuition and creativity expands as you heal on this level.

Mental
Thoughts, confidence, courage and joy are healed on the mental level. The solar plexus governs this energy. You become more action-oriented when healed.

Spiritual
Spiritual awakenings happen at the heart level. The connection to your soul gets stronger, as does your openness to self-love. You learn about your life purpose and step in the energy to manifest it. Compassion is the action taken to help others in need; it is how you share your love with others.

Together, all four levels of healing mind, body and spirit leads you to change your life. You are mindful of what you consume, whom you invite into your social circle, and how you move forward with your life.

Although you may not notice it right away, healing does take place in all the chakras, specifically the ones mentioned. With patience and persistence, you will be living your joy.

Inner Child Chakra Healing

Children have an abundance of energy imagination. Their lives are centered on fun. That stagnates when well-meaning adults ask children to grow up. As adults, we tend to forget fun and burn out.

Chakras are wheels of energy located along the spine that turn, giving and receiving energy that is around you. Chakras can close or become congested with low vibrational energy causing imbalances and health issues.

Heal your chakras associated and inner child with fun activities then balance that with adult-style journaling. Below are inner child healing for the seven main chakras and two little known ones to keep you balanced and happy, head to toe.

Soul Star Chakra Inner Child Healing

The soul star chakra is located six to twelve inches above the head. This is your Higher Self, the part of your soul connected to the spirit world.

The soul star chakra radiates unconditional love and needs no healing, but healing the other chakras allows you to access your Higher Self with little to no effort. In this process, you learn your life’s purpose. Distractions, unhealthy relationships and stress are eliminated.

Activities

Reflection
Automatic writing is one way of connecting with your Higher Self. You can ask questions about past lives, chakra blockages, and steps to take to heal your life. If you try automatic writing, journal about how you felt about the process and answers.
