Reiki Attunement -- Feeling Nothing
I received Reiki 6 months ago, and it was an amazing experience. I really felt the energy flow, and emotionally I felt like a new person. So yesterday, I took a Reiki I class/attunement, which I was really looking forward to. My classmates reported warm hands, tingling, waves of emotion, visions etc. Aside from feelings of relaxation, I felt nothing. (Except for a headache after the attunement, which wasn't really what I was looking for!) I'm a little disappointed by my lack of response. Do you think I'll feel more of a reaction after daily practice?

All energy work - Reiki included - does take some time and practice until you start feeling the energy that you're working with. With the energy work that I do, I just now started getting very concrete sensations after working with energy off and on for 3 years.
It's also good to keep in mind that not everyone senses energy in the same way. I'm a tactile/empath when I do energy work, but there are many other ways of sensing energy, such as sight, sound, taste, even smell. Your way of sensing energy might be something that's unexpected / different than the others in the class.
Keep up the practice, you'll start sensing energy in time!

It was explained to me by an experienced internal martial artist and qigong practioner that many of the more "dramatic" sensations people initially experience with qi (energy) are actually caused by qi blockages, and that once the blockage is cleared and the energy starts to flow freely, the sensations often go away.
With practice, one can then start to feel qi moving in the body, but the feelings may be more subtle than the initial feelings of heat or tingling or electricity that were felt so strongly when the energy was blocked.
So "not feeling anything" isn't always a bad experience. Keep up the practice regulary, and you may start feeling the energy again.
