What does Reiki feel like?

What does Reiki feel like?

I had a Reiki treatment yesterday, which prompted me to write about what Reiki feels like. A Reiki practitioner is like a conduit, channeling Reiki to the client. Reiki goes where it is most needed. Sometimes people feel nothing at all, or they may experience a variety of sensations. You might have a series of treatments and have a different experience every time.

Giving a treatment, people have described to me sensations such as:

  • Like a magnet; a pulling sensation
  • A feeling of lightness, floating, being lifted up
  • Drifting in and out of sleep, an almost trance like state
  • Seeing colours and images
  • Deep relaxation
  • Legs feeling as if they were in warm water
  • Feelings of heat

Receiving a treatment, I have felt:

  • Warmth and cold not from the practitioner’s hands, a feeling at the surface of my body
  • Extra hands
  • My usual inner dialogue ceasing completely
  • Deep calm
  • Light headed
  • A sensation of sinking deep into the treatment table

Whatever you feel during or after a treatment, healing will have occurred at some level. Some people sleep better after a treatment, others may have vivid dreams.

Having had a Reiki treatment, last night I had a very refreshing sleep and today I feel a sense of calm and wellbeing. I sometimes have uncomfortably vivid dreams and my sleep last night seemed dreamless. I give myself regular self-treatments, but receiving Reiki from someone else allows me to give myself totally to the experience. Thank you Clara!
