Reiki practitioners have many different reasons to begin the practice of Reiki. Some become practitioners to be the healer in their family or tribe. These practitioners typically reach the level of Reiki II and are at peace with a practice where they are of service to those that they love, providing healing energy as a supplement or alternative to drugs or invasive procedures. Some Reiki practitioners train in the practice of Reiki to enhance their primary vocation, be it massage therapy, nursing, mental health counseling, physical therapy, yoga, etc. These practitioners use the practice of Reiki to improve the lives of their clients or patients by providing them with an added method of integrative health care. And some Reiki practitioners discover a desire to spend their lives following the calling of becoming a full-time Reiki professional, guiding and supporting their clients in positive change, and educating and training future energy medicine facilitators.
One thing that each of these practitioners have in common is the transformative nature of Reiki, and the magic that begins to manifest in their own lives. Each time the practitioner observes a positive response or change as a result of their work, faith in the healing power of energy is confirmed. Witnessing a relief of chronic pain, renewed vitality and sense of purpose, a release of grief, or an awakening of spirit will have a great influence on the Reiki practitioner. Each time the practitioner feels or observes the power of Reiki there is another moment of clarity, a deeper understanding of the simplicity of the natural laws of energy.
And this deeper understanding eventually leads to a sincere desire to align oneself with the natural laws of the Universe and energy. The five precepts of Reiki – to not anger, to do our work in the world, to be grateful, to not worry, and to love and respect all – become a way of life. The day begins with a promise to oneself to stay in a place of peace, being present in each moment, observing our feelings and reactions as we go about daily business. These actions eventually lead to living a life of greater compassion and authenticity, abundant with magic and little miracles.
As a Reiki practitioner, one will be awed and inspired by the power of Reiki and its impact on the lives of those served, but the greatest transformation manifests within the Reiki practitioner themselves. Faith in the healing power of Reiki energy continues to grow, strengthened by continued commitment to the practice.
