When the word Reiki comes to a person’s attention, it’s like a magic bean being planted. Reiki Training is the start of you becoming the person you came here to be.
I do a lot of Reiki Training which is all about teaching people how energy healing works. I also teach them how to use it to work on themselves and others. When I talk to people about how they got to Reiki, a lot of them will say, “I kept hearing the word Reiki” or “A few people have told me I should learn Reiki.”
At that stage, some people don’t really know what it is. Some have done a little bit of research online. I thought I’d give you my definition of what Reiki is and how it can help you transform your life.
What is Reiki?
In essence, Reiki is energy healing. The energy that we are using is the same energy that we are all made of…Life Force Energy or Chi or Prana – however you know it. We are all made of energy and we all come from the same source of energy. Reiki is when you connect to that source of energy and channel it for the purpose of healing yourself or to help someone else to heal themselves. The person channelling the Reiki will be attuned to the energy and will have learnt how to do this in a safe way. This is what Reiki training teaches you.
How can Reiki help me?
Reiki is an amazing tool for personal development and spiritual growth. It can help you access so much more within yourself and really change your life. Before I came to Reiki, my life was chaotic to say the least. I felt lost and like I didn’t really belong here. Many of my students can identify with this feeling of “wanting to go home” but not really knowing where home is. It’s a deep sadness that I think is felt by many on the spiritual path. I think Reiki really helped me to come to a better understanding of what it means to be on this Earth. It also helped me to find my purpose in life and gave me the opportunity to help others.
I remember on Day 1 of my Reiki training, my teacher said to me “You’re going to be teaching this one day.” I laughed out loud. Sure enough though, she was right and it has been the most rewarding journey of transformation and expansion. Tough in places, but well worth it. I’m now in a position where I can teach others and watch them grow and its like planting magic beans!

What is a Reiki attunement?
Now there’s some teachers out there who will attune you to Reiki. An attunement or empowerment is when a Reiki Master passes the blessing of Reiki on to a person so that they are able to use the energy more effectively for themselves. I think you need more than just an attunement though. I think you need to be taught how it can be used so that you can get the most out of it for yourself.
The way that I teach Reiki is based on it’s practical application to everyday life. It’s your tool and you want to be able to use it for yourself, in your own way for your highest benefit. For me, this is important because not only are we interested in expanding ourselves spiritually, we also need to remember that we are human and live a human life with real human experiences. Being spiritual is great but so is understanding your human-ness.
Reiki Level One
Reiki Level One is open to everyone who has an interest. It will teach you the basics of energy healing and it’s application to everyday life. We learn about the history of Reiki so you can connect to where it came from but also learn about it’s journey from East to West. The Reiki precepts (principles) are the foundation of Reiki practice and we also learn the daily energy meditation – another key element. We also learn about mindfulness, self-healing and cover what happens as you’re energy begins to change. I think that’s important knowledge if you’re learning to master yourself! There is also a practical at the end of the 2 days training so you’ll be taught how to give Reiki to friends and family should you wish to.
I’ve met quite a few people who have had Reiki attunements but haven’t been taught the foundations of practice for them to get the most out it. I think that’s a real shame because Reiki is the most amazing personal development and transformational tool there is out there.
If you’re open to mastering yourself and getting in control of your own life, Reiki is a great option. Not only does it help you to understand yourself, it also gives you a way of understanding the world so that you can find your place in it. It helps you to connect to yourself, your source of energy and the world around you.
That to me is the golden thread for alignment. Magical things begin to happen when your energy starts to change.
You’ve got the power within you. Reiki training simply helps you to access it!
