After session experiences can vary greatly from person to person. The more you are in-tune with your body, the more you will take note to the positive changes from Reiki.
One of the most important things to do after a Reiki session is to drink plenty of water to hydrate your body as your body’s energy system may be moving at a more optimum rate.
You should take time to enjoy your deep state of relaxation before slowly coming back into full awareness.
While the overall experience of reiki is extremely rewarding and pleasant, there are some after smyptoms that can happen that you may feel are "negative" in nature but are all signs of positive changes within.
Possible After Symptoms
Some people may experience one or more of the following healing and detoxification symptoms after a session:
Frequent urination and/or bowel movements
Feeling emotional, emotional release, or emotional shifts
Crying for no apparent reason
Feeling on top of the world or buzzing with energy
Fatigue, feeling overtired, needing to sleep or rest
Sleeping 8-12 hours overnight
Feeling hot or cold
Skin detox symptoms such as blemishes or pimples
Traveling aches and pains throughout bodyTemporary "Flu-like" symptoms of Headaches, dizziness, or nausea
The symptoms listed above are all positive signs that your body is bringing itself back into balance.
It is also normal if you do not experience any of the symptoms above. In fact, many people don't have any symptoms. If you experience any symptoms for an extended period of time after a session, it was not caused by Reiki. You have an illness or other medical condition which you should address with your Medical Professional immediately. Reiki detox symptoms are minor and temporary in nature, and they should not last longer than 24 hours.
Awareness is a vital component of wellness. Observe any changes in energy, mood, feelings, memories, thoughts, behaviors, reactions, etc. Often times, Reiki brings deep, underlying issues to the surface if you are paying attention. This will help you identify the true root cause of your issue(s) and symptoms. If you clear up the emotional, mental, or energetic root cause(s) behind your issue(s), you will no longer have the physical symptoms and they will not return. Reiki reinforces your ability to take responsibility for your own life and helps you make the necessary changes in attitude and lifestyle to promote a happy, healthy life.
