Here are a few Frequently Asked Questions about Energy Healing sessions:
How Do I Prepare For An Energy Healing Session?
Preparation for an energy healing session can be done in many different ways. You can take a spiritual bath, smudge yourself and your area, light candles, burn incense, meditate or pray. It is advised that you do what is needed in order to get into a receptive state to receive the energy.
The follow the steps below are recommended:
- Find some time for yourself in a quiet space. You can use earphone and listen to gentle music.
- Get in the most comfortable position as possible (laying down or sitting up), your back straight and your arms and legs uncrossed, so the energy can flow through you without restriction.
- Once you are comfortable, close your eyes and ask your Higher Self, Guides, Angels and/or Ancestors (whoever you believe in) to assist with the attunement.
- Simply focus on your breath and relax.
What To Expect During An Energy Healing Session?
It is recommended to be open and receptive during an energy healing session, as everything is energy and “what you expect is what you get”! Energy healing may feel different to each person.
The energy channeled during an energy healing session is best received when you can find some time for yourself in a quiet space. You should be as comfortable as possible, eyes closed, your back straight and your arms and legs uncrossed, so the energy can flow through you without restriction. Once you are comfortable, simply focus on your breath and relax.
You do not have to concentrate on making or keeping the energy flowing, it will flow freely on its own accord, just relax and enjoy the energy.
As the energy works with your body’s innate healing capabilities to clear out emotional, physical and spiritual energy fields, you may experience a wide range of sensations. It is not uncommon to feel extremely relaxed or even fall asleep. Sensations of warmth or cold, tingling, numbness of limbs, throbbing, pulsing and even jumping are common body sensations felt.
While some people experience physical sensations, others may have mental and emotional experiences such as a strong sense of calmness and peace, mental pictures or receive messages from your guides or Higher Self. Many people have reported feeling very grounded and connected to Earth, the Universe, their Higher Self and their life’s purpose.
Some people may not experience any sensations at all during an energy healing session. This is not an indication that you did not receive the full benefits of the session. Each person receives energy in their own way. Although all experiences are different, almost everyone reports feeling extremely relaxed during an energy healing session.
What To Expect After An Energy Healing Session?
After an energy healing session, our body (on all levels) will release the old stagnant energy (and toxins) and make space to reset itself for self-healing, higher vibration and Divine energy.
Some people report not feeling anything after an energy healing session, but they experience and notice a shift in their consciousness. This can result in changes in all aspects of their lives and a closer connection to themselves and the Universe (Source, God, their guides, Angles, etc.). Other people have reported experiencing dreams, emotions, thoughts, etc. that come up (from the past or present) after an energy healing session.
This is part of the clearing/integration process and it is advised that you do not resist them. It may help to keep a journal; this will assist you to better understand and see your progress. Be patient, loving and kind to yourself after an energy healing session, as this is the time when your body is integrating the energy on all levels and can manifest in various ways.
Sometimes this release can be challenging and ugly, causing a shift in the state of our body’s balance and changes in our bodies (physical, etheric, spiritual, etc.). When this shift and these changes happen, we may experience fatigue, sadness, euphoria, hungry, flu-like symptoms, headaches, old ailments resurfacing, dizziness, runny nose, aches and pains, diarrhea and other symptoms. These symptoms are a result of the release of old, stagnant and stored energy and toxins into the body for elimination, cleansing and self-healing. This is a normal and natural process to experience after a healing session and is sometimes referred to as a “Healing Crisis”.
During a “healing crisis”, your bodies (physical, spiritual, etheric, etc.) are releasing toxins (old thoughts, beliefs, memories, patterns, programs, habits, dis-ease, energy, etc.) and this release may affect you in different ways. Not only is your physical body detoxing, but your spiritual, emotion and mental bodies are experiencing a detox as well. “If this happens, please keep in mind that this is a good sign, and it indicates healing. Once the toxins are released and the body adjusts to renewed health, you will feel better. During this time, you should focus on self-nurturing, get lots of rest, drink a lot of water and release that which no longer serves you.” (Susan M. Obijiski Online).
For example: Before your energy healing session, you (your body) were taught to bottle your emotions but as a result, you became angry, anxious and even physically sick. This has become normal for you and your body has learned to protect itself while fighting to maintain its normal functions to keep you alive. After your energy healing session, you may feel the need to talk about how you feel, you may find that almost everything annoys you, you may want to understand why you feel the way you do or, you may become sick. This is your body (on all levels) releasing the old stagnant energy (and toxins) and making space to reset itself for self-healing and high vibrational and Divine energy.
One of the most important things to do after an energy healing session is to give yourself the gift of patience, love, acceptance and the permission to explore and discover yourself and your new vibrational consciousness. You have the power within you to accomplish anything. Your Divine Birthright is Love, Light, Abundance, Bliss and Health!
