Perhaps you want to get attuned to Reiki or learn Reiki for the first time. Though maybe you are already a Reiki healer and are unsure how to advance. Evolving with Reiki is the most comprehensive Reiki training you’ll ever find.

There is undoubtedly a wide range of courses and teaching styles, and I hope this brief overview gives you a better understanding of what to expect and how to avoid the watered down version so you get the complete training.

There is a watered-down version of Reiki in the Western world that includes the laying on of hands, but genuine Reiki practice is much more than that. Reiki is a practice that leads to enlightenment, but what exactly does this mean? How can we comprehend how this affects our personal lives?

In the Western culture, both Reiki and Yoga are watered down.

At the time of writing, I am in India, where it is widely accepted that Yoga in the Western world is merely asanas (postures) and not the actual and complete form of Yoga. Yoga teachers in India must learn for at least two years, whereas Westerners must study for only 30 days. However, even two years does not cover the entirety of Yoga knowledge, and one can imagine that it would take lifetimes to study.

Usui-Do, the original practice of Reiki, is a path to enlightenment in the same way that Yoga is. When Reiki came to the Western world, the laying of hands became more of a focus.

Healing abilities, self-healing, is a natural by-product of a dedicated and concentrated spiritual practice.

It’s a shame that Reiki has become even more watered down with short online courses that only teach the bare minimum of the practice, and as a result, there are Reiki practitioners who don’t know how to increase their conscious awareness, raise their energy vibration, heal themselves, or communicate with their spirit guides and unseen helpers for assistance.

It is unlikely that you will discover anotehr Reiki school that assures correct training and skills because most Reiki Masters nowadays do not have the understanding. Furthermore, when Reiki first arrived in the Western world, the energy exercises and spirit sounds of the symbols were not passed down, thus most Reiki practitioners I’ve encountered (Reiki One and Reiki Two) lack these essential components.

Reiki, as a comprehensive Natural Energy Healing technique, promotes higher living, self-improvement, mind awareness and direction, feeling into negative energies and transforming them to good. It’s a true practice will positively change  your life.

Watered down Reiki in Scientific Studies

Finding effective scientific studies on Reiki can be frustrating because most studies employ a watered-down version of what Reiki practitioners have learnt rather than the entire system. Reiki is known as a Natural Healing System because it is more than simply a few treatments; it is a whole system for living a better life. I’m not sure how I can explain this further, but here’s a few things to consider when looking at Reiki courses.

What questions should you ask your potential Reiki Master?

#1: Reiki Masters should be able to speak directly with their Spirit Guides, Unseen Friends, and Higher Self. The reason for this is because when we work with energies we should be able to feel and communicate with them in whatever form they come to us. Furthermore, imagine that a Reiki practitioner is giving you a healing but is unaware of the negative entity in the room. There are many things to consider with energy healing, so look for a Reiki Master who has developed at least some level of psychic powers.

#2: They must have knowledge of the energy exercises and Kotodama (spirit sounds of the symbols). Energy exercises help to build up a person’s relationship with Reiki energy which in turn deepens their practice of how to do Reiki. Not every Reiki Master needs to be super human as some of the revered martial artist (this takes years of practice and development), but they should at least be aware of such.

#3: Be actively involved with increasing their conscious awareness is an absolute necessity. If one is unaware of the energies within themselves and their patterns how can they help their clients and students heal? The benefits of Reiki are vast, but one must know the complete system.

Furthermore, a Reiki Master should be able to easily raise their energy vibration. Anyone who performs healing on oneself or others should not be trapped in destructive habits or operate from an ego-based viewpoint.

As a result, if you’re thinking about learning Reiki, keep these factors in mind.

  1. Ask if your (potential) Reiki Master will teach you how to communicate directly with your Higher Self.
  2. Inquire about the toxic inherited patterns they carry. This awareness is required for them to be good healers, and it also indicates how consciously aware they are.
  3. Discover if they know about the Kotodama and energy exercises.
