Five of the Best Ways to work with your Reiki Practitioner
My last post focused on what happens during a session. Here's some info about what to look out for when seeking and finding a practitioner:
1. Make sure you resonate with your pracitioner.
I can't stress this enough. People don't like to disappoint. I have known women who went to the same hairdresser for years and wouldn't switch, even though they weren't getting what they wanted. Instead of disappointing their hairdresser and moving on to someone else, they got stuck. It is the same way with your Reiki Practitioner. If you don't resonate, find someone else. There are many qualified and wonderful practitioners in Orlando.
2. Change what's not working.
This relates to #1- if you've been seeing the practitioner for a while and aren't getting the same results, or haven't been walking away from treatments feeling vibrant and healthy, let her know. There may be something going on in the practitioner's life that's spilling into treatments. It could be time for her to seek her own healing, and get on the table herself.
3. Do the work.
Do your homework. Practitioners like to work with people who want to heal, and who take responsibility for themselves. Don't go to your appointments with the same issues rolling around in your head each time. Work on them at home, journal, do a releasing ceremony, practice mindfulness and not complaining. No one wants to work with someone who is not willing to allow the Reiki energy to shift them.
4. Pay a fair fee.
If you're paying too little for a treatment, you won't get the results you want. If you're paying too much for a treatment, you won't get the results you want. A fair fee for a Reiki practitioner is the same as for a massage therapist, around $80 for an hour. Some pracitioners charge way over that fee, and if they do, make sure they're exceptional and their healing treatment is going to shift you into something new permanently. Otherwise, see your practitioner regularly and pay the customary fee.
5. See your practitioner regularly.
This goes back to #4. Reiki isn't a magic bullet. Any healer who tells you that your life will be changed after one session is either doing the work for you, or does not understand the process of healing. Reiki shifts people over time. Sometimes treatments take a few days to have a full effect, and a minimum of three treatments is recommended for this reason. Also, seeing your practitioner regularly allows her to make sure you're progressing and moving along in your healing process.
