what to do after your reiki treatment
After your Reiki session
After a treatment you might feel energised or drained as the toxins leave your body. It all depends on how your body responds on the day.
Here are some very simple, but important steps you can take after an energy treatment to ensure the energies continue at their highest vibration, and that you continue to feel the benefits of the session.
Take it easy
Set aside some time after your session, even if it’s 20 minutes. Don’t head straight to the gym, reach for your phone to check messages or emails, or go to a social engagement. Trust that what you need to get done, will get done.
Drink plenty of water
Drinking plenty of water flushes out toxins and tired energies, and supports the healing energies to continue. Notice how much water you drink for the few days after a session. Can you increase it by half a litre a day?
Eat plenty of fresh vegetables and nourishing foods for the rest of the day, and if you can for the rest of the week. Processed and stodgy foods make us feel heavy and can deplete our energy. Stay away from refined sugars and energy snacks/drinks, as these are also quick-fix solutions. Make a note of what you eat for the rest of the day. How does the food make you feel? Do you feel lighter with more energy, or sluggish with less energy?
Avoid alcohol and tobacco
Alcohol and tobacco dull our senses, and therefore our energies. Avoid both for at least 24 hours. Reiki cleanses, balances and heals, so we don’t want to dull our senses. Instead, try to stay fully present with what’s going on around you.
Notice your feelings
Know that whatever you feel is okay. Nothing is permanent; not even joy, bliss or happiness. As we accept that our feelings constantly change, we become better equipped to deal with our whole range of emotions. What are you feeling right now? Where in your body are you feeling it?
Make some notes
Start to write down what you notice in a journal. Do you have any recurring thoughts or feelings? It’s hard to ignore the messages when we see them in black and white. Perhaps some new and exciting ideas are forming; take note! Is there a common theme in what you are writing?
