It is necessary to address expectations here, specifically which ones are reasonable, and which are unreasonable. Often, clients think that they will be completely healed after one Reiki session. While miracles and instant responses do occur, it is important to remember that we didn’t get into a state of imbalance overnight. It may take several or many sessions before health is restored to the physical body. Happily, the benefits of Reiki can begin to increase after several sessions. And as improvement continues, the benefits continue to increase, as well as the speed with which we are able to see results. As obstacles are removed from our path of the invisible, (emotional, mental, spiritual levels) the changes move more quickly on the visible levels. Healing takes place on the different energy bodies and it takes time for the healing energy in some to filter down into the physical body. And once improvement is evident, the negative energy that was removed must be replaced by the positive which usually means lifestyle changes in thinking, diet and/or situation. Change is good. If we don’t change and move, things tends to stay the same. See Kiazen philosophy.

Regular Reiki treatments can bring about a calmer and more peaceful state of being, in which a person is better able to cope with everyday stress.

The benefits of Reiki can sometimes be unexplainable. Some people may have a profound experience that words cannot be used to describe what has happened. This is the wonders of the essence of experiencing spiritual energy.
