I love teaching Reiki! I started teaching Reiki in 2002 and have loved every minute of it. In order to do Reiki, you must receive an attunement. A Reiki attunement is a process in which the Reiki Master-Teacher opens the healing channel in your body to allow the Reiki or Life Force Energy to pass through you to a greater degree while also passing on the Reiki energy via symbols. The symbols are coded to hold the sacred healing modality and once you have received the attunement, you have the ability to do Reiki. It's really very simple! This is how Reiki is passed from Teacher to student.
One of the reasons I love teaching Reiki is the look on my students' faces after they receive the attunement and can feel the energy flowing through their hands. They are usually quite amazed and honestly, so am I - every single time. Reiki never ceases to amaze me. Even though I have passed many attunements, it still amazes me that this sacred healing modality exists and that I get to pass it on to others! It amazes me because of the power of the energy. From one minute to the next - from just before the attunement to immediately after - to feel my students' hands heat up so fast and feel that energy flowing, is really miraculous. To see their faces light up when they start their self-healing practice in class and feel the energy moving and the heat coming from their hands is really wonderful.
Another reason I love teaching Reiki is to see my students' perform their first Reiki healing session on others (or me!) in class. They are amazed at what they can feel flowing through their hands, picking up in the receiver where they need more healing or how the energy is shifting and moving. Receiving Reiki attunements helps to open our psychic gifts - gifts of clairvoyance, clairaudience, and clairsentience. In other words, it helps to open our spiritual gifts. When I see my students receiving messages or intuitive insights during the healing sessions through their spiritual gifts, it warms my heart. They are usually tentative and not sure of themselves, but I love to give encouragement to trust what they are getting and trust themselves. It's a beautiful blossoming of the healer within that I see emerging and I love it. I love it, because I know that when they leave my class, they will be doing Reiki on themselves, loved ones, clients, pets and even the Earth. This means more healing for this world and that is exactly what we need! Spread the love, spread the healing and be in service. It is a fulfilling path.
And one more thing I love about teaching Reiki is to hear my students' stories of healing after the class has ended and they have gone home to use Reiki in their lives. I receive emails from my students about the amazing and miraculous healings that happen soon after they leave class! Like I said before, Reiki never ceases to amaze me and I love to hear these stories of healing.....they just never end!
Teaching Reiki is a service of the heart and I am blessed to be given the opportunity to pass on this ancient healing modality that brings so much love, light, and healing into people's lives.
