Anyone Can Learn Reiki

Updated: May 11

I love to read and have many books in my library about Reiki and other metaphysical topics. When reading the About the Author section, more often the not it seems like the author had a beautiful and charmed childhood with a supportive family. It’s like they spent their lives in one glorious summer with rainbows and fairies, knew from the very beginning what their life path would be and the entire universe supported them at every step along the way. That is lovely for them and very far from my own experience.

My sister-in-law once asked me why no one called child protective services on behalf of me and my brother. I answered, “I don’t know it was the ‘70’s and ‘80’s. A lot of stuff happened back then that aren’t acceptable now.” Later, one of my BCST teachers and a medical intuitive touched in while I was receiving a treatment and said, “A lot of experiences.” That’s the polite healer way of saying, “Damn girl, you been through some sh*t!”

After my first Reiki session with Melinda Kaur, she encouraged me to learn Reiki. She told me I could do what she did. She saw something in me I couldn’t see for myself. As far as I was concerned, I was broken. I didn’t want to be here anymore and this Reiki treatment was my Hail Mary. Even though that first session was incredibly healing, it was the first step down a long road. I began taking classes with Melinda. In each class I experienced deep healing - emotionally, spiritually and physically.

Spread the Love! It makes the world a better place.

After completing the Master level class with Melinda, I thought, maybe I can do this – but not right now, I’m not ready. I took all of the classes again as well as Karuna Reiki with Colleen Benelli, LMRT. In each class I continued to experience deeply profound healing on many levels. I finally accepted this was my calling, to be a Reiki practitioner and teacher.

I know if I can learn Reiki, and in doing so learn to love and heal myself, then anyone can learn Reiki. All that is necessary is to be open to the healing Light and Love of Reiki. To allow Reiki to help you heal yourself, you have to want to heal. And while being attuned to Reiki is easier than you might think, it can be very hard to let go of the hurts of a lifetime.

The beauty of Holy Fire Reiki is, once you have been attuned, Holy Fire continues to work on you in the background of your life. Learning Reiki isn’t just for people who want to become Reiki practitioners/teachers. Learning Reiki is for anyone who wants to learn. I want to teach everyone I can because the more people who bring this Light into their hearts and their lives the better. Spread the Love! It makes the world a better place.

I am not saying that since my first Reiki session, everything has been sunshine and kittens. The ego wants to keep you in the status quo. Things will come up that can derail you from your healing journey. The important thing is to persevere, even if you have slipped back into old habits and thought patterns. Reiki is always there when you need it. Reiki meets you where you are. Reiki gives you exactly what you need at that moment in time.

Feel free to contact me if you would like to learn more about learning Holy Fire Reiki. If I can't help you personally, I can refer you to another Reiki teacher who can.
