Accessories


A is for Accessories

Accessory: a thing of secondary or subordinate importance : an object or device not essential in itself but adding to the beauty, convenience, or effectiveness of something else

In the energy healing field there are many accessories a practitioner can use to enhance the client's experience.  Most practitioners provide relaxing music and low level lighting as these are obvious ways to help the client relax.  Incense is another popular accessory which when chosen wisely can fill the room with a calming scent.  Some practitioners decorate their healing room with stones, crystals, statuary and tapestries.  Candles are often present. Others create a sacred space by setting up an alter to display a collection of personal mementos.  


There is nothing wrong with using an accessory or two, though some practitioners can get a little carried away.    And too much of a good thing is... well...

just too much. 

Energy healing is natural.  It uses the body's subtle energy field and the universal energy that's all around us.  Accessories, while they may enhance the perception of the healing experience, do not necessarily enhance the actual healing outcome.   Energy healing is portable and effective whenever and wherever it is used.   On the side of the road at the scene of an accident.     In a doctor's waiting room.   At a restaurant, or in a movie theatre.  All of these are perfectly acceptable places to receive energy healing.   No special accessories are required.

  1. Great start to the challenge. When I was in high school (back in the dark ages) our home ec teacher taught us to use a numbering system to keep from over-accessorizing. (Ya got a point for each pierce of jewelry, a point for a print or striped fabric, etc.) Pretty outdated, but still handy at times.

    1. You know you've got a great idea when it works as well today as it did in the dark ages. BTW: That's when I went to high school too :)

  2. Fascinating post. I don't know much about energy healing, so this is all good information--and I love the touch of humour. :)

    1. Thanks Kern, I do like to keep things on the lighter side whenever possible. I hope you find what you read on my blog interesting and perhaps even helpful.

  3. Love your post. Totally agree about the use of too much accessories. I like to use some soft relaxing music while giving Reiki treatments; use my intuition in selecting what the client would enjoy. I generally stay away from incense. I'll be visiting you again. Thanks

    1. Hi Feather, always glad to connect with fellow Reiki practitioners! You can't go wrong when you rely on your intuition. (I agree with you on the incense - I only use it if the client requests it.)

  4. I totally agree. A few small things can put someone at ease, but to many things throws people off.

    1. Especially if they're new to Reiki and already think it's weird - the more we can do to "normalize" energy healing the more people will be attracted to it and the more people we'll be able to help.
