10 Tips to Find the Right Reiki Master for You
With the number of teachers, trainings, and institutions teaching Reiki, interested apprentices are at a loss as to where and who to enroll under in order to receive the Reiki attunements necessary to practice the art. It is also quite hard to find which Reiki institutions and Reiki masters are truly qualified in initiating new learners. For students, finding the right master is crucial. They've got to find that person who has the energy to bring them exactly what they need and expect from Reiki.
If you're looking for a Reiki Master and are willing to enroll in a Reiki school, here are the things that you have to know before enlisting:
1. Reiki proficiency
It is very important that your master has been working with Reiki long enough to know everything about it, including the techniques not written in any book or manual. His own training is going to be very relevant as well. As much as possible, the teacher should spend ample time teaching the craft and is using it personally.
There are different types of Reiki and each of them follows certain techniques and teachings. If you want to learn Usui Reiki, it is very important that you learn the art from a real Usui Reiki master. Know the lineage of your Reiki master as it will determine what type of Reiki he'll teach you.
Certain institutions require qualifications before students are taught the basic principles of the art. But for Usui Reiki, there are rarely any qualifications required. For advanced Reiki classes though, like Karuna Reiki, you would have to be a certified Usui Reiki master first.
