To become a Reiki practitioner, one must be attuned by a Reiki master to be able to serve as a conduit for universal healing/life energy. After Reiki practitioners are attuned by a Reiki master, strange things can happen. Strange, not as in scary (unless you live in a fear-based mentality then maybe...), but strange as in out of the ordinary. This could be physical, mental, emotional, and/or spiritual. After an attunement, some may experience headaches, chills, physical pain, emotional discomfort, and/or spiritual disturbances or experiences. When this happens, it's some kind of purging of negative energies.
After my Reiki I, I didn't really feel any physical pain. However, I went through some emotional discomfort. Within a few weeks, my beautiful mother shared an experience that explains why much of my life has been surrounded by feelings of guilt and shame. We cried, laughed, and shared some deep troubling emotions that have been festering within. It was an emotional purge my ma and I needed.
For any Reiki practitioners, did you experience a negative energy purge? For those familiar or not familiar with Reiki, what do you make of all this?
