Hello Everyone. lifehiker suggested I post my experience here.

Today I had my first reiki session and I really enjoyed it. It was a great experience and I will definitely be going back.

Are there any websites/books you all would recommend to learn more? What experiences have you all had with 'first' reiki sessions?

It's such a curious experience and hard to describe. How long did you feel the physical effects of it?

I'm new to meditation and was able to get into a really good meditative state while i was on the table.

Thank you for your insight!

Hi Everyone,

This is firebird21 and I have created this journal especially for my Reiki 3 journey. I have taken level 1 and level 2 Reiki classes and had my first of quite a few classes for Level 3 this week. I have to say I am greatly looking foward to this incredible journey and wanted to share it all with you. My journal can be found under myreikijourney so feel free to drop a hello if you would like. My first entry was a prayer to my guides to be with me through this process. Namaste and Brightest Reiki Blessings.

Please send me some love & light. I've had a pretty bad sinus headache for a few hours now & nothing I've taken or done has seemed to work.
Thank you.

Cross posted quite a bit

I'm really wanting to 'buckle down' with my reiki work and make a career (of sorts) out of it. I'm currently working on setting up my own school, but it will probably be a while before I can invite others into it (a money thing, part of why I need to start making some income!)

I've searched locally, and I was really surprised to see that I couldn't find any webpages of local RMs. The best I found was someone's mention on Craigslist. (Can we say 'Yay! Fill the niche!'? lol) What I also did find, and quite a few of them given the liberal/spiritual location I'm in, was several spas that offer reiki.

Now it appears that around here, the going rate for a Reiki session is $60-80 an hour. So in the spa situation, I'm wondering several things:

1. How much of that goes to the establishment, and how much to the practitioner? What is a fair rate or percentage if the spa is providing the space, supplies (tables, towels, incense, music, etc), and advertizing? What if they go to someone's home, so the spa only provides the advertizing - Does this change the division?

2. Is the fee paid directly to the practitioner or the establishment?

3. In the event that the fee is paid to the establishment who in turn pays the practitioner, would taxes be taken out or would I have to hold out a portion on my own? (I would only work every now and then, so I doubt a weekly pay check would be applicable. I'm also wondering in case I decide to offer these services through my school)

4. In such situations, is the practitioner usually able to build a clientele or is it usually just a first-come first-available situation?

Thanks for your help in answering these questions! I'd rather know a little bit about the mechanics BEFORE I go talking to any establishments.

I'm really embarking on my healing path at the moment, and almost all of my passion and energy since Solstice has been focused on getting my Reiki work kick-started. I want to begin holding classes and healing sessions, and I would like your recommendations for CDs. I prefer music without vocals that can be played quietly in the background while the person is focused on their own spiritual experience. Since I am primarily working with Medicine Reiki, I would like to have some Native American music, but that is sadly an area that I'm quite ignorant in.

Looking through a catalogue I picked up at church, I'm considering Elivia Melodey's Terra Firma cd or possibly Steven Halpern's In The Om Zone. I would eventually like to accumulate several different albums with different sounds and energies.

Please share your experiences or recommendations! Thank you!

Last night my son attended his first Reiki practice class. He was unsure where to put his hands (since it was his first practice since his attunement last week), but the energy running through him was powerful. I asked him to work on my head, and the headache I had that night went away. When his hands covered my eyes, I saw deep purple. And when I did Reiki on him, it went in like butter into warm bread.

The cool thing for me was that last night was the first time I started seeing things. Usually I just get a feeling -- a very specific feeling that tells me what emotion I'm sensing in others -- but no visions. Last night, I started seeing things as I was running energy. I don't yet know how this could help, but I trust that it will soon make sense.

This morning I just feel so blessed to have such a wonderful son who wants to find a more meaningful path through life at such an early age.

Last night I got to do something I wish every parent could do. I got to witness and participate in my son's Reiki I attunement. I got to give him Reiki, and receive Reiki from him.

This morning, he told me he had a hard time sleeping last night. The kid is remarkably tuned in. When we started bringing in our Reiki guides, doors started slamming open and shut. I knew who it was, and he said exactly what I was thinking.

This morning he told me he can't wait to get his Reiki II attunement in the fall. I am so proud that I can barely contain myself.

How blessed am I?

Yeah thats a bit paradoxical to me as well.
Last night I was at a house party (small, just a group of close friends) and one of my female friends was complaining of a backache and asked me to give her a little massage. So I did, and I was like, I should ask her if she knows what Reiki is (she's really into astrology and natural meds. I'm also attuned to level 4 shamballa, but just not a big practioner of late, but I still get hot hands when i put them on anyone). At first she wasn't sure what I was talking about and then did (she pronounced it dif) and was like, "Oh no, don't give that to me, I don't want it." So yeah obviously I didn't,  but I asked her about it today just because it came up.

She told me that her naturopath back home told her it was really bad for you, in that you give your energy to someone else, and because someone else's energy is in you it creates a block.
So I'm just listening... i dont like to always go into super-reiki-defensive mode as i dont want to argue too much... also not the best at explaining it anymore since I'm far away from all my technical material that has the "correct definitions" and so forth.
She said she believes in like chi and energy etc, its just that she trust her doctor and that if he says its bad and creates a block, then she i'snt for it, but admitted to not doing much research on her own. This was also over a year ago he told her this.

So, how does a naturopath think this? Or where do these ideas come from? Clearly wrong, for anyone who knows what it is, I mean we don't force it on people, but to think it harms you??? Has anyone else ever heard this before? I tried to explain a bit about how it's Chi, and therefore NOT my energy your getting... the exeperienced one knows how to make sure it's not your energy because that is bad for everyone.

anyone got any ideas? about anything? either a really good way to explain reiki without getting tooo mystical? or anything? thanks~
