Today I put on my “Dear Alice” (with a nod to “Dear Abby”) identity and respond to a question from a blog reader!
Here’s the question: Why could there be big and strong burping -literally like a frog- after Reiki sessions? My client received some Reiki sessions for feminine problems, she wanted to get pregnant, she never could, but it was really odd, about 30- 40 minutes with that……. THANKS ~Carmina
When Reiki energy is directed to the lower chakras, and when it’s working there, the lower digestive system is also receiving energy. Blocked energy can also cause blockages in the reproductive and digestive system. When energy is moving around, unblocking, rearranging, clearing, for example, physical symptoms such as burping, stomach gurgles, and other reactions can occur afterward. Think of it as a sign that something is happening. Sometimes there is a “detox” sort of effect, which may even result in mild diarrhea or mild flu-like symptoms for a day or so. This is not considered a negative reaction, but instead the body’s way of letting go of the energetic toxins that were blocking its most effective functioning. So reassure your client, and tell her the burping means that the Reiki is doing its work on her. I’d also advise drinking plenty of water after any Reiki session.
