People often ask me what sets a Reiki Master apart from a Reiki Practitioner. Aside from being trained in the Master level of Reiki, I believe that what makes a true Reiki Master is their ability to work one on one with their Healing Guides in their practice. In most Reiki trainings I’ve come across, this is only briefly touched upon and students are left doubting their abilities, their connection with Source, their Guides, and Reiki energy.
Truthfully, I understand the lack in training on connecting with your Healing Guides. As a teacher, it’s one of the more difficult things to teach as Reiki isn’t only available to those who have some kind of connection or spiritual beliefs already. One of the things that Reiki claims is that you don’t have to be spiritual in order to practice Reiki. I somewhat disagree with this, for me personally, Reiki is inherently spiritual and I’ve grown immensely spiritually since the start of my journey.
What I do believe is that no matter your spiritual beliefs, you can practice Reiki. Reiki will help you to deepen your spiritual connection with whatever you believe. For more information, see my Guide to Spiritual Wellness for more information on what spiritual wellness means and how believing in a higher power is NOT required for spiritual wellness.
A true Reiki Master allows Reiki energy to work through them; they are a channel for Reiki and the Healing Guides of themselves and their clients. They are dedicated to their own healing journey, they never arrive, they are always learning. They work directly with their Guides who direct the healing and teach them through their psychic senses and intuitive guidance how to help each individual who comes to them for healing.
To learn to work with your Guides, practice and openness are key. You probably already know who some of your Guides are even if you doubt you do (most people have 2-3 consistent Guides). Usually your Guides are beings that show up regularly for you, you always talk about them, or hear their names, you see signs of them everywhere. You’ve been connected with them since you were a child and often connecting with your inner child can help you to connect with them.
All Healing Guides are fully positive and of love and light. Any entity that directs you to do something against your will, or that you know to be wrong, is not a guide. Guides can not violate your free will, make choices for you, or intervene in lessons or decisions. If you find this happening please talk to myself and/or a psychiatric professional.
The easiest way to connect with your Healing Guides is when your mind is clear and emptied. You can practice reaching this state through meditation. When your mind is clear, you can then tune into your guides through visualization, imagination, feeling, and dialog. One of the biggest challenges of connecting with your Guides is trusting what you are receiving. When you first start communicating with your Guides, you may instinctively brush off what you are receiving as “just your imagination.” I’m here to tell you that what you are receiving is real, the best confirmation of the reality of your Guides is feelings of love, peace, and surrender. Communicating with your Guides feels right because it’s inherently a piece of your soul. It always has been. When you connect, you’re relearning a piece of you.
In my Reiki I & II Practitioner Course, I teach you to connect with your Healing Guides. We practice together and I’m available to answer any questions that arise as you grow and heal.
Both classes start October 8th and will occur on Fridays from 3pm-5pm, PST. We already have 2 students registered and I would love to have you join us! It’s been a long time coming and I know that this class is going to be sooo magical and power-packed.
If you have any questions about the course, I would love to invite you to Book a Complimentary Clarity Session with me to answer all of your questions and figure out which option is the best for you at this time.
If you’re ready to register, you can use the payment links directly on the course pages. Once you’ve registered, send me an email to confirm your registration and I will get you all set up for the class.
Love & light,
