What To Do before Your Fist Session
Before Your First Session
What To Do Before Your First Session
DRINK EXTRA WATER
Beginning on the day you sign up for your session, please be mindful to drink extra water. By drinking extra water prior to the session, you are preparing your bodily system to more easily adapt to the healing transformations that will occur.
A good rule of thumb is to double the amount you are already drinking per day.
Consider drinking purified or spring water, as these are the absolute best for healing. Adding a bit of organic lemon juice will also boost your body’s internal cleansing processes.
WEAR COMFORTABLE CLOTHING
On the day of your session, select clothing that makes you feel relaxed, happy, warm and comfortable. Choose an outfit that is loose around the waistline, so you can breathe fully and easily. If possible, wear natural fibers such as cotton.
By wearing comfortable clothing, you are signaling to the body-mind that you are allowing a deep relaxation to occur. This allowance is vital to the Reiki healing experience. Many women like to wear leggings and a t-shirt where as many men like to wear shorts and a t-shirt. Just be comfortable.
ARRIVE TO YOUR SESSION A BIT EARLY
For your very first visit, there will be forms to read and sign so getting up to the office early is a great thing to do. Your practitioner will want to talk to you so be prepared to sit for a few minutes to chat with them.
If you are stressed, try doing some of the items below.
If possible, arrive to your session at least ten minutes early.
Once you arrive, if the weather is nice and the neighborhood is safe, it would be great to take a slow, meditative walk. With each step, notice the physical sensations of your body moving. Notice the colors of the trees and the landscape. Notice the sounds—are the birds chirping? Are the trees rustling in the breeze? Are there people laughing or talking? Notice the sights and the sounds. Breathe.
If the weather is not conducive or if the neighborhood doesn’t seem relaxing to you, then you can simply sit in your car (or find a soothing place nearby, such as a library or a quiet café) and spend a few minutes enjoying the peaceful quiet. Close your eyes and bring your attention to the physical sensation of your breath. Notice your belly and chest rising and falling. Notice the coolness of the air entering your nostrils. Notice the length and duration of your inhales and exhales. Notice everything you can about how it feels to breathe. Allow your mind to calm down and enter a state of simplicity.
One of the main purposes of Reiki is relaxation. By arriving a bit early, you give yourself enough time to begin that relaxation process yourself. If you can greet your practitioner with a little bit less tension in your body or with a little bit less mental noise, then your time spent in the healing room will be maximized. Your session will go deeper and be more profound—thanks to you, because you took the time to begin the healing process yourself. Bravo you!
In the end, Reiki is all about self-empowerment. There are so many ways that we can make our lives more peaceful, more joyful, more strong and more free. Reiki is one method among many that help us tap into the core of our true selves. Feeling and understanding that true self is what makes true healing possible.
Make Your Own Pendulum
In this class, you will be making your very own pendulum. This class will also teach you how to connect to it and use it. Pendulums can be one of the most accurate means of answers you can get.
This is only open to six people.
Come and relax to the sound of both Tibetan and Crystal Singing Bowls. I have many to choose from. Don't know how to use them, I can teach you. This is sure to be a fun time of learning and relaxing.

Donate to Help (CLL) Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia
Leukemia is myeloid or lymphocytic depending on which bone marrow cells the cancer starts in.
Lymphocytic leukemias (also known as lymphoid or lymphoblastic leukemia) start in the cells that become lymphocytes. Lymphomas are also cancers that start in those cells. The main difference between lymphocytic leukemias and lymphomas is that in leukemia, the cancer cells are mainly in the bone marrow and blood, while in lymphoma they tend to be in lymph nodes and other tissues.
Donate to Help Fight Diabetes
Type 1 diabetes
If you have type 1 diabetes, your body does not make insulin. Your immune system attacks and destroys the cells in your pancreas that make insulin. Type 1 diabetes is usually diagnosed in children and young adults, although it can appear at any age. People with type 1 diabetes need to take insulin every day to stay alive.
Type 2 diabetes
If you have type 2 diabetes, your body does not make or use insulin well. You can develop type 2 diabetes at any age, even during childhood. However, this type of diabetes occurs most often in middle-aged and older people. Type 2 is the most common type of diabetes.
