Becoming a Reiki master

Living the life of a master is living integrated and balanced in mind, body, spirit and emotion.

by Josephine M. Joseph — 

Reiki is a vibrational healing modality that has become popular in recent years. Those who practice Reiki understand the power of its essence to stimulate growth and self-awareness. It opens us to experience a higher purpose of being — one based on unconditional love.

What does it mean to be a master? In Reiki language, it takes two to three levels of teaching in order to achieve the ability to pass Reiki onto others. I believe it is much more, however. Reiki is an initiation into a way of life and a journey we take.

Living the life of a master is living integrated and balanced in mind, body, spirit and emotion. Being a practitioner of healing brings new perceptions, and releases the past so that we may passionately live the dreams of our heart. Becoming a master requires humility, courage and strength to live the lessons of our soul.

Mastership does not set us apart; it brings us together. We are each born with equal parts wisdom and power, and we use that power through choice.

The silent knowing inside all beings recognizes that we are one life, and Reiki offers an opportunity to channel the divine energy that unites us. Being a conduit for energy assists one in the discipline of being empty. In shamanism, it is called the hollow bone. To be hollow is to bring through the purest of energy.

As we channel life-force energy, we are transformed by the knowledge that everything is interconnected, since we are one mind, one heart and one light. We are the spirit of creation in form; we are life.
