I am almost ready to offer Reiki sessions to clients for the first time! However, when giving a Reiki session, it tends to take energy from me and sometimes I feel fairly fatigued afterwards. What do you do in terms of multiple clients a day? How much time do you leave between booked sessions? And recommendations about my fatigue between clients? Thank you so so much!
Congratulations on getting ready to see clients. This is awesome and exciting! While it's true that the Reiki comes through us and not from us, we are still using our energy to hold the space...we are still sitting, standing, moving, holding our hands in position, etc.
For me, when I do lots of sessions over the course of a few days, I have been known to sometimes get "Reiki finger," as I call it, because I primarily use my index finger to draw the symbols. haha It's important to note, that this fatigue is not from Reiki, but rather the ways in which we send Reiki or conduct our sessions, and not from Reiki itself.
So what to do? Make yourself as comfortable as possible when offering Reiki. When I get Reiki finger, I change the way I draw symbols...or draw them less frequently. Do what you need to do in order to be comfortable because Reiki will still do its thing whether you're comfortable or not, so why not be comfortable?
And definitely there are ways we can set up our practice so that we make sure we're making ourselves not only physically comfortable, but also in other ways. I set up my calendar to automatically block time after each session so I never have clients back to back one right after the other. This means there's no rushing, I can properly take time between sessions and prepare myself for the next one. You will find what works for you.
Know that no matter what there will always be bumps and things that need changing and that, like our Reiki journey evolves and changes, so will your experience of offering Reiki to others. It's ok to change things up when you need to, and that is to be expected for sure as your journey evolves. Sending blessings to your Reiki journey and your sessions!
