Setting an intention and opening your mind to the healing energy of Reiki is highly recommended prior to a session. An intention will center your body, mind, and soul around what you hope to achieve with Reiki. Intentions are personal, private and anything meaningful to you. If you're not sure of your intention, I invite you to read this prayer (either aloud or in your mind) before your Reiki healing session begins. A copy of it is framed and displayed in my outdoor Reiki studio for all to reference. Reiki's healing energy works with or without intention setting, however I recommend it for all who feel it's right for them.
"I welcome the healing light of Reiki into my body, mind, and soul
in this present moment.
I deserve to be nourished and I deserve to feel well and full of love.
My body is the safest place to be on this planet. I am safe.
I allow my vibration to rise in the presence of Reiki’s healing light.
My body, mind, and soul are open to receiving.
It feels so good to accept healing into my life.
Welcome healing light, welcome.
And so it is."
