I've never charged for Reiki, but my wife does. She goes out to a local farmer's market here in town 1-2 times a week and does Reiki for money or
trade or barter. The stall itself costs money
Thats much like me.. There is sometimes material cost to what I do. Such as gas money and stuff like that.. So there is no harm in getting
something out of it, as long as its not to the level of greed..
Which in this thread I am glad to hear that none of you that do this, feed into the greed, which is at the root of all evil..
But as you said, there are many who would try to hype it up to make good money from doing this.. There are a few in my area who are simply greed
driven to do this.. I steer clear of them, and warn others about them.
I've always been interested in healing, if there's one ability I wish I learn is to heal people. And I know Reiki is just one of many style of
healing, so I'm not sure if you used Reiki to heal people, but I'm curious how did you go about starting, how did you learn it, how do you improve
Yes honestly I dont see myself as a Reiki, just as a soul who can allow others to see beyond what we consider to be normal.. And when I do massage
them, my whole body heats up. My hands become very hot..
I just seem to radiate this heat by thinking it.. And along with friction..
To get started.. rubb your hands together very fast.. This will prime your body to understand how this heat works.. After time you will have no need
to rub your hands together, it will just radiate on its own..
I started going about this when I was about 12 years old.. I was told by a person who was a coven leader that I would help out many people someday,
and that I would go onto becomming a writter/healer..
Now that Im getting older, and found a true mentor, Im finding things to start to come into light!! Im very happy.. And owe much to people like
yourself and ATS for bringing me out in public about it..
I got my hands on as many books as possible!! And really tried to read between the lines in everything.. By not taking everything I learned at face
value, I learned how to see what I read as a metaphore..
I improve this by working on my heart chakra radiance.. I improve myself by keeping an open mind and open heart to almost everything I read and find..
I keep a clean mind, and body.. Im not a health nut.. But do know what is good for my body.. Lots of water
Most of the time this is a personal journey.. What works for me, may not work for you..
But one thing is for sure.. If you belive it, and work your best at it.. You will find yourself where I am today..
And that is to simply help out anyone that comes to me, within reason..
You will find when you work with the light, it will reward you..
Yet always understand that with light, there is darkness.. And the darkness will trick you into thinking you are doing good, when you are just being
used as a tool by dark energy..
Its tricky.. and I am still a student.. But would be happy to share my findings with any of you anytime.. Feel free to U2 me...
But please.. My advice on people online selling their craft, IS NOT TO BE TRUSTED!!! If you are honestly seeking to help others, then this knoweldge
will come to you free of charge!!
But that is clearly IMO..
I never had to spend 1 penny to learn what I know..
Sure I have bought books, but they didnt tell me anything I didnt already know deep down.. There is no Magical book that will tell you what you
already have stored inside your mind..
