For someone wanting to learn Reiki, seeking Reiki Master who is just right for you is very important.
There are no special credentials required to learn Reiki. It is more about a way of life, and the only thing you need to become a Reiki channel is selflessness, natural compassion and a willingness to practice regularly. And it is these very qualities that set one Reiki master apart from the other.
Why is Seeking Reiki Master Important?
Unfortunately these days, quite a few Reiki practitioners view themselves as health care providers and are themselves confused about the basics of Reiki. They seem to have forgotten that they are just mediums for the corrective flow of Reiki and it is NOT THEM but the divine Reiki energy that heals!
Which also means that they cannot (and should not) either take credit or give a time frame for healing.
All they should focus on is being humble, acknowledge the divine Reiki’s healing power (not their own) and ensure that the person who comes to them goes back with positivity.
Positivity can never come if a practitioner doesn’t have the compassion and a sense of oneness with the universal bond.
I have seen Reiki practitioners refusing to heal or teach someone who cannot “pay their fees”. Reiki, like air and water, belongs to no one and is free for all the living beings in this universe.
Yes, they should charge; NOT for Reiki, but just for their time and effort. And of course, never ask so much that a person cannot give. It’s a positive energy exchange- which means, it should also create positivism.
So how do we evaluate while seeking Reiki Master?
Since Reiki has emerged not from schools and colleges but from the grass-roots of humanity, there are many varying perspectives as well as practicing styles. All of them are good in their own way.
A few common factors indicate the authenticity as well as the genuineness of a Reiki guru.
Do not go solely by the possession of certificates or the photographs with the well known personalities. A true Reiki practitioner will never boast by showing how well connected he or she is!
Ask a few specific questions before deciding upon someone to attune you or heal you.
Look for a person who has experience in Reiki healing. Most so called Reiki practitioners are “teaching” as opposed to healing.
