My Reiki Experience
Submitted by Radiant Energy on 15/Dec/2006
If you have been attuned or have received Reiki sessions before, you are warmly invited to share your experiences here. I will start off the discussion by sharing a bit of my Reiki story with you.
I was attuned to master level in Toronto, Canada - although I was slow to start and tried to ignore that inner voice for as long as I could...because of fear.
My whole attunement process took approximately 2-3 years. I had intensive periods of lessons and attunements with my teacher. These were followed by longer periods with little-to-no contact with him during which time I was encouraged to put the teachings into practice and to observe the changes that were to take place within myself, in my life and to those around me.
I was not encouraged nor deterred from giving Reiki sessions to others. My teacher was supportive throughout the process but was careful not to enforce any beliefs on me. I was often reminded that free will was a governing Universal Law and I had the choice each step of the way.
As I became more and more comfortable with the changes that came with this process, I began to hear that little voice in my head more often...although I wasn't as afraid of it anymore. I noticed myself being inspired to try new things and face fears that I knew were holding me back. I took Kundalini Yoga classes which I thoroughly enjoyed, and opened a Reiki practice that allowed me to give Reiki sessions and attunements to others.
After about a year and a half of advertising myself as a Reiki practitioner - all in the name of empowering others with the benefits of Reiki, I decided to close down shop. My personal experience made me feel that offering Reiki in exchange for money tainted the process and actually limited to flow of energy. This is my experience, and I am by no means saying that this will be the case for everyone.
Since my first attunement, I progressively learned more about energy and made the conscious choice to apply what felt right. After experimenting with different approaches, I decided that rather than singing in the streets about the 'miracle of energy', I would respect the fact that everyone chooses for themselves and took the indirect route of simply providing the information to others through this site.
Love and Light
