Reiki Hand Intuition

Last night’s experience of a Reiki session is responsible for the creation of this post and the start of a new column on Gemstone and Tarot that will be titled Amanda’s Reiki Journal.

I want to talk about the sensations that I have felt so far from my hands during a Reiki session and what my intuition is telling me.

Heat from Reiki Hands

Apart from the obvious of feeling heat from the palms of my hands and my clients telling me that they also felt it, the more I practice Reiki the more I’m beginning to notice.

The heat is a sign of the Reiki healing energy being transmitted through my hand to the client or myself. I don’t always feel this heat and my clients don’t always comment about it and I necessarily don’t think that this is negative.

Feather Touch on Hands

To date, I have felt what I can only describe as a small and light feather being brushed against the side of my hand during a Reiki session on two occasions only. I suppose I could describe it as a hair that has fallen from my head, lands on my hand and then continues to fall, brushing across my hand, but when looking there is nothing there.

Reiki Intuition

My intuition is telling me that this feather sensation during a Reiki session is my spirit guides assuring me that I’m doing well. This occurred for the second time, last night with a regular client and I will come back to this at the end of my journal post.

As I write this, I’m just over 5 months in on my Reiki journey and the more I practice, the more changes I’m noticing.

I’ve even given up smoking with no help and no substitution of a vape that I find truly remarkable. My intuition is telling me that my Reiki teachings are responsible for me giving up smoking. What’s even more fascinating is that I’ve just had a feather tingle on my index finger while typing this out.

Dipping My Hand in Cold Water

Back to last night’s Reiki hand experience that I’m still contemplating.

Near the beginning of December, I received my Reiki second degree and provided to me by my Reiki Master was three power symbols to enhance the flow of Reiki healing energy.

I used for the second time only during an actual treatment, the Reiki distant healing symbol as I had been under the impression that it was only to be used for long distant healing (not in the same building) until I read it in a Reiki book that I treated myself to.

The temperature of heat from my hands was the most significant I had felt and I could also feel mild sensations of tingling and vibration that I’ve not felt before. These sensations were different to the feather sensation.

I performed all Reiki hand positions on my clients head and throat, but when I got to her heart chakra, it was like dipping my hand in cool water. I wondered if it was her breath at first and I ruled this out. I remembered about my Reiki teachings and how we are encouraged to trust our intuition and I continued with the session. No other chakra had this cool and still sensation.

Guidance of Spirits?

Upon sealing my client’s aura at the end, I came across another noticeable cool spot, but this one felt totally different. I had just moved past her right hip, moving down to her feet when my hand moved into a cold area that felt like a draught, but no air was moving. I moved my hand down and back up and it was still there in that same spot and I continued with the sealing of the aura and decided that I would discuss my sensations with her at the end. My intuition did tell me that there was a spirit stood next to me and my hand was moving through it, but I didn’t know what to think about the cool water at the heart chakra sensation.

My client believes that the spirit of a female she helped during her final months of life and who was buried 3 weeks ago, was with her and looking out for her. She has come to this conclusion because the lady died of heart failure that coincides with my feeling of dipping my hands in cool water when above her heart chakra.

She also told me that it was the best Reiki session she had received from me yet and that she felt totally cleansed. She really enjoyed it!

I also believe that the feather sensation I felt was a sign of spirits guiding me. I’ve got a long way to go with my Reiki journey and only by noting things down here can I remember it all and refer back to at a later date. Perhaps you have had a similar experience that you would like to share?

  1. I am proud to say I am the lady who has regular Reiki from Amanda and last night was not just the best yet session I’ve had with her but better than one I had many years ago with a very good Rekki master who is extremely well known in Liverpool. I felt totally cleansed and free from the stresses that I had been carrying around since my noevspiret friend passed. I am also so happy that she is now one of my guardians
    Thankyou so so much Amanda xx
