Benefits to yourself and to your clients

Reiki is an ancient form of energetic and spiritual healing.

 

Reiki benefits you and others on all levels of your being; body, physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. It also helps relax your muscles and breath to increase circulation throughout the entire body which enhances your body's natural ability to heal itself.

 

Reiki is used to help calm and heal any number of aliments in people and pets.  It relaxes the nervous system and opens up the circulatory system for more blood to flow through the entire body.  This aids in building the immune system, your bodies building block for health.

 

Relief and healing from symptoms such as arthritis, muscles aches, stiff joints, diabetes, cancer, heart disease, and chronic infections are also known outcomes of Reiki treatments. It’s relaxing properties enable the body to focus its energy on regeneration and healing.

What to Expect in Reiki Training

Reiki is held as sacred in the hearts of many Japanese people, as well as Alternative Healers around the world.  It’s place in the healing world is tested and proven, as is Qi Gong, though not as widely known.  When you step into Reiki you are stepping into history shared by the ancients to a very special human being, Mikao Usiu, who shared his space in the world from 1865 – 1926.  I am honored to share it with you.

 

I prefer training students one-on-one in order to give them the best possible basis for beginning their Reiki experience.  I also provide them with traditional Reiki training information, documentation and plenty of time for questions and Reiki practice.  As well as teach them about etheric energy and it’s importance to our body and our health.  It is a comprehensive overall training of body, mind, emotions and spirit.

 

All choices are yours.  Allow yourself time to assimilate and think about what you want out of the training and how you think you may want to use Reiki in your life.  No decision is ever written in stone as our Paths are always changing and redirecting us as Spirit calls us on towards our true purpose.  We make the best decisions we can in the present moment knowing we need to be flexible for the future.

 

Who you determine to be your teacher is, of course, particularly your choice.  I highly recommend that you check out a couple of different teachers and ask for student and client references.  Take your intuition with you and your heart when you check them out.  As in anything else, choose from a position of understanding what it is you want out of the training at this moment in time.  How thoroughly do you want to understand the energy you will be using?  Is the training one-on-one or in a class room?  How many students are in a class?  How long is the class for the number of students in the class?  Do you feel it is a completely peaceful and comfortable training environment for you to learn in?

 

    • A typical training of every Reiki level should give you time to learn some basics about Reiki and it’s history, in case you don’t already know them.

    • It should also give you plenty of time to learn about the energy you are using and why it works as it does.  It is the whole basis of Reiki healing.

    • You should receive some basic handout materials that correspond to each level of training you are taking, including hand positions for a treatment session and basic client/practitioner etiquette.

    • There should also be plenty of time for practicing the healing techniques so you understand their uses and positions on the body.

    • Most important, the teacher should have plenty of class time to be present for you in order to answer all of your questions and guide you through the practice techniques.

 

Important Information

Reiki training is broken down into 3 and 4 levels, depending on the teacher.  The traditional way of training is to include Level III & Level IV together, thus taking you all the way to Master Level,Teacher.  However, not everyone has the desire to become a teacher.

 

The solution has been for the traditional training to be changed to match the needs of the client, thus allowing it to be taught in 4 separate levels.  This allows people who had originally thought they would only have need through Level III to continue their training on to Level IV Master Level, Teacher,  without paying the full cost of Level III & IV training together.

 

I provide the choice of either doing Level III alone or I will combine Level III and Level IV together for a discounted price.

 

Some teachers today will not split the training into 4 levels and a student must pay for Level III and Level IV in one lesson, no matter whether they are already a Level III or whether they want to be a teacher or not.

 

Reiki Level I Training

This is the beginning level of Reiki training.  It is the level where you will learn what Reiki means and it’s history.  Through this training you will be introduced to the basic concepts of Reiki and it’s principles, plus Master Usui’s 5 precepts.

 

Though you may already be aware of these from other modalities you have trained with, we will go over grounding, centering, mindfulness and breath work.  These are important foundations to doing healing work in any modality.

 

You will be initiated through breath and energy work from me to you to receive the Reiki symbols into your body and energy field.  You will not receive the actual symbols at this time.  Many books and Internet resources are available to the public and you may already know what the symbols look like.

 

To keep the sacred tradition of Reiki I follow the way of not passing out the symbols in Level I.  I do, as tradition states, give you a handout of the healing hand positions and the appropriate documentation for Level I.  I am fully present for you during the entire session to answer all your questions and receive any information you wish to share about your experience and journey.

 

Practicing the hand positions and helping you, if necessary, to recognize energy your way is the next step.  The purpose of the entire process is to assist you to feel comfortable with all of the information, practice and training for Reiki I.

 

You will be asked to do 21 days of healing on yourself using the self healing positions.  The reasons are to help you become familiar with using the energy and how it feels in your body.  This will also help you realize how energy can bring up emotions and memory as you let go of layers of issues in yourself so you can recognize it when you work on others.

 

It is always a two fold process.  As we heal ourselves, we heal others.  As we heal others, we heal ourselves.  If you can remember these principles, you will have a better understanding of your own personal situations as you travel forward on your path.  It can help bring you back to your center.
