Reiki Healing Crisis

Reiki Healing Crisis

Reiki healing crisis can be experienced by new Reiki first degree practitioners. The Reiki energy flows into the body and heals us at all levels, including the physical, mental and spiritual level.

During Reiki healing toxins are released from the body and this can cause loose motions or vomiting or in some cases, when someone is taking Reiki treatment it may seem that the symptoms are increasing. This is known as the Reiki healing crisis.

We should not be discouraged by this. Once I conducted a Reiki course in Bandra West. There were 4 students from the same family and one of them was feeling feverish after the course. It happens sometimes. Reiki practitioner as well as for the person who is taking healing need worry about it. I just told her to drink more Reiki charged water and she was fine after that.

This is perfectly normal. Reiki healing crisis can also be experienced by few people immediately after being attuned to Reiki. It is not a sign that something is going wrong with the Reiki treatment or attunement. It is not that the healing procedure or the Reiki treatment is not working. It is in fact quite the opposite of this.


This Reiki healing crisis can be experienced by anyone undergone the treatment or the attunement with Reiki. However, it does not happen with everyone.

It happens to few people who have recently started Reiki treatment and have lots of toxins accumulated in the body. It may also be experience by people have not done a Reiki treatment in a long time.

Some individuals may not have healing crisis at all and some may experience healing crisis after several treatment sessions and even some may experience healing crisis with regular Reiki treatments for years.

What causes a healing crisis?

Some people may have several blockages in their bodies. When such a person undergoes a Reiki treatment, their blockages are released at a faster rate.

These old toxins which have been released from the blockages make the person experience healing crisis. Sometimes this rapid release of blockages and toxins produces discomfort.

Drinking sufficient water allows the toxins in coming out of the body easily.

Signs and Symptoms of healing crisis

The healing crisis is experienced in 3 major levels such as physical level, mental level and the spiritual level. Healing crisis is mainly manifested on one of these 3 major levels. This healing crisis lasts for 48 hours to 72 hour.

Symptoms of healing crisis in physical level may include symptoms like vomiting, nausea, headaches, muscle fatigue or other mild flu-like symptoms. Symptoms like sore throat or cough may be experienced for one or two days which is self limiting in nature.

These symptoms can be managed by taking some additional amount of water with appropriate rest and warm water bath. Water facilitates the maximum excretion of toxic materials through urination.

Symptoms of healing crisis in mental level

When these symptoms are associated with mental level it may produces emotional outbursts. These coming up for clearing so one need to be a silent observer of the same.

In such cases a person may cry, get angry, feel sad or may want to release the accumulated grief. The person may recall old events and may feel better on forgiving, letting go, doing Reiki self healing and meditation. are washed out from the mind by crying or mediation or Reiki healing.

You can also do meditation as given in this video:

Symptoms of healing crisis in life situation

Sometimes some bigger changes occur in the life during the healing process. The symptoms like shifting to a new city, job transfer to a new place, etc.

This kind of change in life actually offers the opportunity to clear out the old ways of thinking and to see the life in a new way. Though this kind of healing crisis seems to be more frightening, still it offers new ways for change and progress.

Healing crisis may produce symptoms, which make people frightened. But all these symptoms which are experienced are the symptoms of release of negative energies.

As the negative energies are released from the body during the healing process it creates room for the positive divine energies to enter into the body, mind and life.
