read "How I got into Reiki (1)
and "How I got into Reiki
(2)" before this post.
After I completed
all the levels until Master/Teacher level, I went back to Japan and
started offering Reiki sessions and classes a little by little.
Then, I had a
fortune to meet a great Reiki master who is a member of the Usui Reiki
Ryoho Gakkai (the Usui healing society) and take all the levels again
with him, so I could deepen my understanding of Reiki.
But I didn't think I could make living just offering Reiki in Japan.
Most of Japanese people don't know about Reiki even though it started
in Japan. Japanese people are usually very skeptical about energy,
healing or spirituality. So I needed to have a job to secure my finance
and I just offered Reiki occasionally when someone asked me.
Even though I
didn't get so many Reiki clients in the beginning, I never gave up
continuing my practice, because it was the only thing I thought I
could do well and I felt happy about. I received a lot of gifts from
Reiki and I could feel positive changes happened for me, so I could
completely trust it.
passed and my father passed away.
He died in a lot of pain and fear, while he was tied up in the bed
in a hospital.
It was very hard to see that for me and my family.
I felt so bad about myself that I couldn't do anything to save him.
Where do we go from here?
But weird things
Right after he
passed away, I started getting a lot of Reiki clients and students.
I didn't know what happened but I became very busy. So I could quite
another boring job and focus on Reiki.
Almost every week, I had some clients telling me something like
"I saw a light
in this room and I feel like it's something protecting you!"
"I felt like
there was another person who was giving me Reiki treatment with you"
"I felt 4 hands
"During my session,
I saw a Japanese old man standing there!"
they felt like someone else was in the room, nobody got scared and
they always told me that someone must be protecting me.
Almost for 1 year after my father died, there were always some people
who told me something like that.
But after the
year, it stopped happening and nobody really say anything like that
Maybe it was
my father helping and supporting me.
It's funny that he didn't know anything about Reiki. I had never talked
about it to my parents because I thought they didn't understand. They
might think I was crazy.
But after he became free from this physical world, he is so open,
he understands everything, he can go anywhere so easily, enjoys offering
Reiki treatments with me and supports me.
is not something that we should be afraid of...
I feel his love in the air.
passed and I'm still very busy with Reiki and I feel so blessed.
People whom I have encountered through Reiki are extremely nice, polite
and warm people and I have received a lot of positive energy from
Because of these people, I could be more confident and comfortable
to be myself.
I started feeling like I may be able to make some positive impacts
to the world even just a little bit.
I'm so thankful
for everybody I met on my Reiki path.
Reiki has changed my life and has been the most amazing gift for me.
And that is why I want to continue my Reiki practice and share it
as much as possible with people who are looking for happiness in their
