Q: Will Reiki work if I fall asleep during a treatment?
A: Yes! You do not need to be awake in order to receive the energy that you need. The energy naturally flows to the areas of imbalance and works to correct them. Wherever you are ready to receive and needing energy, you will. In fact, being relaxed often helps you receive the energy more effectively.
The only thing that you will miss if you get Reiki while asleep is the experience of feeling the energy working. That is a very amazing experience for most people, who experience deep relaxation, release from pain and stress, a dissolving of negative emotions, and more.
But asleep or awake, if you are willing to try, you will be able to receive Reiki energy.
If you are a practitioner working on another person and YOU fall asleep, that’s another matter entirely! Just kidding. 😀
