When I was first starting out with my practice, I thought I could do thirty hours of client sessions in week. Turns out, that’s way too many! Not only could I not keep a pace like that now, when I was first starting out, I could do even fewer sessions, because you build up stamina to do this work.

When you walk around a corner and you suddenly see an amazing architectural work, like for example the Sacrada Familia church in Barcelona, all you can say is, “Wow!” You are speechless, no need for words just, “Wow!” However after the initial Wow moment you start to explain it in words to the person next to you, but these words cannot even describe your initial response.
Are we entering our healing work with the same puffed up ego that we are the healer, and that we know what to do to help a given person heal? Are we trying to achieve a certain healing outcome in a healing session? Are we attached to a certain picture of what healing would be / should be for a given person? Are we trying to work hard on getting a certain sensation to occur at a certain part of the body in our healing work? If the honest answer is, “Yes!”, then this a learning moment for us.
If you study with the International House of Reiki do you have to stand under waterfalls or walk mountain paths in traditional Japanese Shugendo clothing like senior Reiki teacher Frans Stiene has been doing?
In short - no.
So, what sort of things DO you study with the International House of Reiki?
I’ve written here before about my Reiki Journey with Frans Stiene.
I had originally started teaching Usui Tibetan Reiki in late 2004. In early 2005, I received Komyo Reiki training, and within a month of practicing it, I stopped teaching Reiki altogether. For me, the miraculous life experiences with the practice of Reiki were proceeding way ahead of my intellectual understanding of the same, and I felt that I couldn’t really teach anyone the system of Reiki with integrity, as I myself didn’t know what the heck was going on with me.
We are all learning, whether we are teachers or beginners (or both). And we don’t learn solely on our own.
Listening, watching, asking and responding to others are just some of the experiences we share and consequently learn from.
Today we ask you to share your Reiki teaching stories with other practitioners through our blog. Here are some questions to jog your thoughts… and please feel free to add to them.
After practicing the system of Reiki about seven years, I was fortunate enough that two wonderful friends and fellow practitioners were able to book Frans to teach in Cincinnati, Ohio where I live (what a dream come true for me). I read “The Japanese Art of Reiki” in 2007 and felt a stirring of some missing pieces fall into place.
