For upcoming Reiki Training through our spiritual centre, please go to meetup or facebook. Thank you!
1. The Reiki Master
It is important to assess the Reiki master who will be teaching you. Read your instructor’s credentials. Ask the following questions:
Do they have a Reiki practice? Do they have at least 3-5 years of experience?
Have they been working consistently with Reiki throughout the years?
Is their teaching style one that works for you?
Is the training long enough? (It should be at least 6-8 hours)
Is their reputation good?
Have they shared in their advertisement all that they will teach you? If so, does the information match up with what other Reiki Masters teach?
Are they a part of an association, alliance or organization? They don’t have to be and some amazing teachers aren’t. The benefit of being a member of an association, alliance or organization is that the teacher is normally held to a high standard.
Is the price fair? Most Reiki masters set their own prices and some barter. Prices normally range from $80-$200 for Reiki 1.
Do you feel drawn to work with them? This is the main question to ask and trust. Let your intuition guide you to who is optimal for you to work with.
NOTE. No teacher is perfect. Have respect, compassion and understanding when a Reiki Master offers to share with you their Reiki lineage. A lot goes into a training. A good Reiki Master will do their best, while humbly knowing that can’t give everyone everything they need all the time.
I can’t tell you how many people have shared that they never received a manual or book with their training, and because they don’t have a good source to reference, they don’t remember a lot of the content covered during the training and are confused. It is important to have written material to reference later on as you continue to develop your proficiency with Reiki. If someone isn’t offering a manual or book suggestions, think twice about investing the money in their training.
3. Reiki Shares
Most established Reiki Masters offered regular Reiki shares. Why are Reiki shares important? They afford you safe spaces with guidance from your teacher to help you develop and also continue to heal yourself. Reiki shares are the main benefit after you have been trained. Shares also help you extend your circle of friends(your Reiki brothers and sisters). Many teachers don’t have a spaces set up to offer people a regular gathering place. And so, once they finish their training, their development is stunted or stagnates because there is no ongoing support and guidance. We offer Reiki shares at The Nexus Society for you that are by donation or $10 per gathering.
4. Ongoing Support/Accessibility
The Reiki Master should be accessible to you and personable so that you can ask him/her/they your questions. You WILL have questions, and the Reiki master will likely have the answers. Instead of staying within your own limiting understanding of things or confusing yourself with internet searches; it is important to have a Reiki Master you can reach out to. A reiki master is dedicated to those they initiate. All students who learn from The Nexus Society will have the email and phone number of their Reiki Master.
Is the Reiki Master a member of an association, alliance or organization to certify you through? If not, they should have a business or not-for-profit they can certify you through. Be suspect of training that offers no certificates or offers certificates without being connected to a legitimate business, center or organization. Certificates should have the name of the Reiki Master, the date of the training, what the training was, your name and potentially the organization/alliance/business.
Below are some of the main things a Reiki Master should teach you in Reiki I and II. All of these are taught within the Reiki training through The Nexus Society. Our next Reiki I training is October 21st from 10:30 -5pm. Sign up by clicking HERE
