Article by Ananya Sen
This article is for professional Reiki practitioners / Masters but of course can apply to anyone, who are healing people on a regular basis. I am sharing my personal experience and opinions on this topic.
Your clients can be broadly placed in three categories.
1. Believers – the one’s who have complete faith in you and who respect the healing process. These clients know that they need to establish some boundaries with you, because you are a healer and not their friend! You will not have issues healing these people and their healing results will be good. Simply because, they have allowed the healing to happen without bothering you during the healing process. Of course, as a professional healer, you can answer their questions occasionally and handle any healing crisis if it happens.
2. Sceptics – the second category are called “Skeptics.” They will not be satisfied, not feel secure, not thank you or Reiki during the process. Don’t expect much from these people. In my experience, I encounter these kind of clients everyday and they keep asking me almost three to four times a week or sometimes daily “are you sensing anything?” “is Reiki working on me?” “When will I manifest?” These clients are difficult to deal with, because all the good energy that you send to them, they will keep pulling it down with their constant nagging and doubting.
3. Vampires – be careful of this lot! They will constantly complain throughout the healing process and drain you by their “poor me” symptoms. And no matter what happens in their life, they will have something new to complain about! Even after the healing process is over, they will cling onto you and keep “in touch” with you constantly about every area of their life.
I am asking all the professionals, have you encountered these kinds of clients in your practice? My advice to you is while healing clients, stay in touch with them during the healing process and maybe two weeks after that as well. But beyond that you must start to disconnect from your clients, otherwise you as a healer will be blocking their progress or even worse, taking on their symptoms.
Believe me, some of these people just need to empty out their frustration to someone and because we as Reiki healers are generally of a nice disposition, they choose us as their “complain booth.” Don’t allow this to happen. You as healers are creating fresh debt with these people and their manifestation process will start slowing down.
I have seen this in my healing practice several times. A client keeps in touch with me for more than three to four months after their healing is over. And when I was an amateur, I used to allow this. I thought if I don’t help them who else will? I couldn’t have been more foolish. It took me a long time to understand the difference between, clients who have gratitude and clients who are psychic vampires. I learnt some really nasty lessons, thanks to Reiki.
So, all you professional Reiki healers, who are finding it difficult to deal with such clients, please put them out, of your energy fields and cut all thoughts and cords with them. All the best!
