Reiki energy is a wonderful Universal tool. It is the life force collected and channeled by a facilitator to focus and channel energy. I use the analogy of a magnifying glass collecting sunlight to heat an object. That’s my simplistic way to explain Reiki. The facilitator is acting as the magnifying glass to direct Universal Energy.
I have met people who said that they have tried to receive Reiki and it made them too agitated. I have my own understanding of why this happens. The people who can’t tolerate Reiki, I believe, have too much pent up energy. They can’t handle any more. They may need stagnant energy, which is caused by old emotional issues, released from their energy field. This is what I do for a client. I help their body release energy blockages so that their body can receive the healing benefits of Reiki.
This is easy enough to do. The facilitator holds their hands over the clients diaphragm and instead of channeling energy in, they draw old energy out. I would recommend that the facilitator send the stagnant energy, through their hands, away from themselves, and into a river of light. This is done with a visualization of the process and a simple intent.
Once the stagnant energy is released, the facilitator can close up the energy field. They can then begin the original intent of being a channel for the Reiki energy. I have found this to be a very affective way to bring ease to a body.
