There are few things that you can do before and after your Reiki session. You can also try the following stress reduction tips even if you are not experiencing any issues. These easy tips can help anyone maintain their general well-being.
BEFORE SESSION: Comfortably do one or more of the following to fit into your schedule leading up to our session together.
AFTER the session: Continue to do one or more of the following comfortably at least once a week.
1. Relaxing Cleansing Bath
This will help remove chemicals from you physical body and negativity from your aura. Take a relaxing bath everyday leading up to your session. Soak for 20 minutes.
*If you feel slightly dizzy, leave the bath immediately as this means you have achieved the removal of toxins and negativity for one day.
Recipe 1 (for 7 days):
- 1/2 cup of 100% pure Sea Salt
- 1/2 cup of Baking Soda
Recipe 2 with pure essential oils (any time):
- 3 drops of lavender oil
- 3 drops of peppermint oil
- 1/2 cup of 100% pure Sea Salt
2. Sea Salt Scrub
Sea Salt is a great way to help cleanse your aura and draw out stress that you are experiencing. A simple way to do this at home is to use a Sea Salt scrub before taking a shower. You can purchase this from natural health food stores. Try to pick one that has the most natural ingredients as possible.
3. The Power of the Sun:
If possible, the wonderful warm sunshine is known to feed and expand your aura. Spend some time out during the day and relax under the sun. Even taking a brief 15 minute walk will help as the sun fuels you with energy, optimism – not to mention Vitamin D! Sunshine can help ground you.
4. Take a Cold Shower
Yes, I am not joking. This can help clear away negativity that has built up in you auric field. It can help remove toxins and improve circulation and draw out tension from your body. If taking a cold shower is too much for you, an alternate way to do this is to take your regular shower and alternate between hot and cold (15 seconds each). Or, you can take your regular shower and finish off with a cold shower rinse for 15 seconds.
5. Remove electrical items from your sleeping area
It is common for people to place their laptops, computers, cell phone chargers around their bed for convenience. However, radiation and frequencies are continously emitted from electrical gadgets (even when they are not turned on and just plugged in!) This can build up static in auric field which can cause disruption to your aura.
- Charge all your gadgets from your bedroom (at the very least, away from your head). If you are experiencing disruptive sleeping patterns, try this.
I have heard that Lepidolite is a great crystal to place by your electrical gadgets. It acts as a protective field of energy between you and the gadgets. It can become paper thin as it absorb the radiation over time.
6. Clearing Unnecessary Clutter
Do you feel stuck lately? Are you having trouble focusing and feel stressed? Clutter can be emotionally or physically draining and interfere with your balance in life. Some easy tips to not get burdened by clearing out your clutter are as followed:
- Focus on a small area at a time – start small on one spot at a time. E.g. fluff those pillows on day 1. Change your pillow case day 2. Organize your mail on day 3.
- 1 item away a day – 15 minutes is 1% of your day. That is all it takes. Nothing more and nothing less. E.g. Throw out expired yogurt from fridge and recycle one box – Monday.
- Play your favorite music in the background to motivate you. Whatever gets you in the mode, ride that musical energy to get you going.
Stay away from those that can zap your energy
Have you noticed that when you are with certain people, you seem to absorb their negative energy each time you are around them? Make observation and note these situations or people. Sometimes, a pattern will unfold.
- Limit yourself to these situations or at the very least, wear a protective crystal to prevent your energy being leached. We can also discuss this during our session together.
