A BIG HUGE CONGRATULATION TO MY THREE NEW REIKI I STUDENTS
LAST CLASS OF THE YEAR 2015!!
and a short blog about how ANYONE can learn and do Reiki!!
This class loved to laugh and I got to laugh right along with them. We had so much fun, and they didn’t take anything too seriously, EXCEPT, the final practice session. They did a fabulous job and we went way over time (Ok, a bit over time) because we were all so into it. LOVED IT!!
Quite often at the end of the two-day class, we’ve learned so much new information that some students feel overwhelmed. But, I’ve seen this before and every time, the practice session brings everything together. The practice session just helps it all make sense. When the Reiki is flowing the healing has begun, whether the student feels they can do it or not, they do, because with the Reiki flowing, the healing takes place no matter what. It’s incredibly confirming to both student, teacher and the person on the table receiving the Reiki.
Just The Channel
No matter how many times a student feels they need to look at the book to see the hand positions, no matter how much they forget in the moment what they have learned in the past two days, and no matter how much they doubt themselves, the healing still takes place. The Reiki goes to work in-spite of us to help us through that student learning phase, to help us build confidence in ourselves and in the Reiki and to help us get past the nagging beliefs in our head that we can’t do this. The Reiki heals us at the same time as the client. It is a truly beautiful thing.
During the practice session, the client feels heat, tingles or energy shooting up and/or down their body. The student might feel the same thing or something totally different, but they all feel some kind of confirmation that the Reiki IS RUNNING THROUGH THEM AND THEY ARE FACILITATING HEALING. It’s a spiritually powerful feeling. It can be humbling being JUST THE CHANNEL but it can also be FREEING. All we have to do is BE the CHANNEL. The Reiki simply flows through us, and all we have to do is allow it to. The Reiki does so much of the hard work for us that truly, anyone can learn this healing technique. That is the beauty of it. That is the simplicity of it. And that is what makes it so popular because truly, ANYONE CAN DO THIS!! That is spiritually empowering to the whole world!!
So, if you have not take a Reiki class before, please know, YOU TOO CAN DO THIS TOO and it’s so worth it.
Huge Blessings to my Reiki students, I’m so excited to watch your paths unfold,
Go with your Reiki in Love, Light and Lollipops!! (Borrowed that from a dear new Reiki friend to remind us to add joy to our path!)
