How to Prepare for Reiki Classes Online
Good for you! You took the leap and signed up for an online Reiki class. Your Reiki course training is scheduled to start in a week or so, but what can you do in the meantime to help you get ready?
Luckily, you don’t have to wait until your actual attunement to start getting ready. Since Reiki symbols and energy will be “downloaded” into your body during your attunement, what better way to prepare than to cleanse your body as much as possible beforehand?
The Reiki energy from your attunement will do that anyway, but I tell all my Reiki Training Classes’ students that the cleaner your body is inside to start with, the less of a healing crisis you will likely have afterward.
For those of you not familiar with a healing crisis, the Reiki energy “cleans out” lower-vibrational energies from your system. And unfortunately, that process isn’t always (read: usually isn’t) fun.
So how do you go about cleansing your body beforehand?
How to prepare your body for an online Reiki class attunement
- Avoid caffeine, alcohol and tobacco for the week prior to your Reiki training attunement as much as you can
- Eat natural, unprocessed foods like a lot of fruits, vegetables and organic protein
- Focus on thinking positive thoughts
Why you want to avoid caffeine, alcohol and cigarettes before your online Reiki class
Everything is made up of energy, and puts out a vibration into the world. Substances like these contain lower-vibrational energies, and the more you put them into your body, the more the Reiki will have to cleanse with an attunement.
And as anyone who has gone through a healing crisis or cleansing process knows, they are typically not very fun.
If one week seems like too much time, even avoiding these substances for three days before your Reiki class attunement will have an impact.
Eating lots of protein, fruits and vegetables can help
Many Reiki practitioners experience a strong desire for protein after a Reiki attunement.
For some reason, something about energywork and Reiki in particular causes the body to crave protein. This could be that the clearing out of your system requires extra energy, and energy comes from protein.
Fresh, green juices as well as lemon and ginger can help flush your system in preparation for your online Reiki training as well. Drink lots of water, too! (Before and after your attunement. Get that lower vibrational energy out to make way for the new.)
Positive Thinking Before Your Reiki Attunement
Of course you can always benefit from thinking positive thoughts, but prior to your Reiki attunement they can be particularly powerful.
Amplify your energy and vibration with thoughts about how empowering it will be to use your Reiki on the person who deserves it most (YOU), how you will learn a healing modality you can use for the rest of your life and how your Reiki class may open doors for you that you never realized even existed.
Essentially, prepping your body makes it easier for the healing Reiki energy to flow through your body during a Reiki attunement. Think of the Reiki like a river or brook. The water will flow through regardless, but the fewer rocks and debris that dams up the river, the easier the water can flow.
And life is supposed to be easy, not to mention fun. Yes, we are here to learn lessons, but we are also here to experience the magic and wonder of life in all its beauty. And your online Reiki class can open you up to experience more of the connection with everything we all share.
So help yourself get ready for the ride of your life by prepping yourself before your Reiki course training. Be your own best friend and the world will be yours for the taking.
