What to expect in a Reiki Session
When I walked into Just B Energy with Rebecca Britton at Central Wellness in Lincoln, I immediately felt more relaxed.
My therapist Rebecca Brittain offered me a cup of herbal tea and we sat down to talk about what brought me to Reiki.
I found merit even in that brief chat. I realised why I was so worried about moving to a new job, in a new city and it felt good to talk about it.
I discovered Reiki helps release blocked emotions so you can find clarity in your daily life.
Rebecca showed me into another room, with relaxing music, dim lighting and a heated bed.
The practice of Reiki focuses on the seven chakras, seven centres in the body which energy flows through if chakras become blocked, it can lead to illness.
Rebecca held her hands around my head and placed them on different points of my body, focusing on each of the chakras.
The most striking thing about Reiki was the swirling dance of colours that played before my eyes, these colours were bright, and flowed in front of me in specific patterns.
The colours and swirls changed as Rebecca worked on different parts of my body and I felt like I could feel my energy moving and changing.
Suddenly, when she changed chakras, I experienced a shooting beam of purple light straight down the middle of my vision.
At one point I began to feel like I was floating as if everything had fallen away from underneath me.
But I could still feel my presence, or I realised, my energy.
After the session I felt a weight had been lifted and I spent the evening looking forward to what was in store in my future, rather than fretting about the hoops I need to jump through to reach that end goal.
