Your very first session
If this is your very first session, there’s a chance you may get sick in the 24 to 48 hours beforehand.
When your body knows it is going to be able to clear its system energetically, it often start the process a little early. Ii know it’s not exactly what you want to hear, but this is your body’s way of getting a jump start on the healing process. The period that one experiences such symptoms, as well as their intensity, can really vary.
What to expect during and after your session:
- Some patients feel nothing at all
- Others describe sensations of moving energy
- Warm or cold sensations across the whole body or just in specific areas
- Light skin sensations
- Deep relaxation
- Falling asleep
- Feelings of being supported and nurtured
- Visions of images and colors
Some patients experience an emotional release such as tears, or they may develop insight into specific areas of their lives. Other symptoms you may notice that continue to unfold as the day goes on: perhaps stronger digestion, a sense of being more centered and poised and less reactive, and sleeping deeply that night.
You can expect the following physical symptoms before, during and after energy healing sessions:
- Increased urination
- Your bowels moving
- Passing wind or farting
- Your tummy bubbling
- In extreme shifts, you may find yourself nauseous or vomiting as the energy leaves your system
- Sweating and night sweats
- Period changes
- Disruption in your sleep patterns
- More relaxed muscles, joints, nerves
- Lighter emotional state
- More patience, love and acceptance
- Inspired to move forward on your healing
- At peace with the past
Drink lots of water
When your body is busy with this last layer of expulsion, it utilizes water to flush the toxins from your system.
It is important that you drink a lot of water before, during and after sessions. It will facilitate shifting more quickly and make it easier on your body.
Why does this happen?
According to holistic and energy teachings, everything that happens or processes in your system needs to happen on the level of all your bodies.
There are four bodies: spiritual, mental, emotional and physical.
The last body to process any energetic change is your physical body. Most often, the final step is a diaphragm release to small intestine, which causes the tummy bubbling sound and effect.
From small intestine, the old energy and beliefs are expelled from your system using normal excretory channels such as urination, defecation, sweating, your period, lymph and more.
Chances are very good that you will have emotional purges after some sessions.
Emotions released during and after sessions include anger, pain, frustration, depression. Sometimes these have to come out using your body’s natural mechanisms.
So it’s normal to cry if there’s been pain and especially in the beginning, please have compassion for yourself for a few days after the session as the emotions work out of your body for good.
How long until I feel better?
Each session will be different, although you’ll usually feel relief within 24 to 72 hours if you experience any side effects at all.
If you are working with big stuff then you may require multiple sessions, and it’s not uncommon for a hectic shift to knock you down for a week at first.
As you get better at shifting though, you’ll often experience immediate relief when working with any techniques.
What if I don’t experience any symptoms? Did the session still work?
Yes! Everyone is different, you may not notice symptoms right away, or even at all. This is also just as common as experiencing any of the above. Rest assured that your body recieved the healing. Take time to journal about whatever comes to mind in the days after your session. You may notice that the shift is noticeable in your daily outlook, positivity, stress management skills and mood. Listen to your body and it will speak to you
