As you may know, Reiki is an ancient Japanese healing art that originated over a hundred years ago, and one that has experienced a lot of popularity in the West in recent years. So much so, in fact, that many people are wondering “Can anybody learn Reiki”! Well, the answer to this question is a resounding yes. Let’s take a look at what you can expect when it comes to learning Reiki online, and how you can get started today!
Is Reiki Too Hard to Learn by Yourself?
Many people want to learn reiki, but they don’t want to pay a fortune for one-on-one training or classes. Fortunately, most people can learn reiki by themselves—and there are tons of great books and online resources you can use, but is it possible to learn reiki without actually doing anything? Is it possible just to read about reiki and become a master practitioner? Read on to find out!
Are you a good candidate for learning Reiki at home?
If you want to learn reiki at home, but don’t know if you are a good candidate for it, consider these factors.
First, do you have an open mind? Are you willing to be self-guided and put in extra effort and time when needed? Have you done your homework on all aspects of Reiki before diving into training at home? As with most other things in life, it is always best to fully understand something before jumping into it. The great thing about being self-guided is that once you take your first steps toward learning Reiki, you can go as fast or as slow as works best for your situation.
Second, do you work well independently without any outside guidance or support? Can you follow an organized plan and keep up with set deadlines and goals? Do you need constant reassurance from others, or can you stand up on your own two feet? Of course, working by yourself can also mean having no one to bounce ideas off of or ask questions when stumped; however, those people around us who may not believe in our personal vision may hold us back more than we realize.
Finally, are your finances easily accessible so that you can spend money on online courses whenever necessary? While there are some free resources available online (though I would avoid them unless they come highly recommended), many beginners will find they need to pay a little money up front just to get started. The ideal home study course is The Reiki Masters Training Course For Beginners – details of which can be found by clicking the link.
Where do I get my start with learning Reiki at home?
Start by learning everything you can about Reiki. That way, when you decide to take a class at home with an online video program, you will know what to expect and have a good understanding of what is involved. It’s also important that you find a video series that fits your learning style. Not every person learns in exactly the same way. In fact, some people learn better when they physically see something happen while others learn more effectively from listening to instructions or watching demonstrations onscreen. Which is why our course contains not only video lessons, but a full mp3 audio course of each lesson, 3 in depth training manuals (1 for each level) and many extra downloadable resourses to guide you every step of your learning path.
How much time will it take me to learn this technique myself?
Learning reiki at home can take as little as 3 months, but it does require a strong determination to learn and stay on track. Learning how to practice reiki can be done by anybody who has dedication and patience. It’s important to keep in mind that learning reiki isn’t going to happen overnight—so if you have lots of time on your hands then there’s no rush! But if you have a busy schedule and are looking for ways to learn how to practice reiki while getting other things done, then consider taking advantage of our online reiki training opportunities. Many people find that these are ideal because they allow you to learn at your own pace, on your own schedule.
What are some of the ways I can practice using my new skills once I have learned them myself?
In fact, reiki can be learned by just about anyone. Here are some of the ways you can practice reiki on yourself and others once you have mastered all of your lessons. Be sure to check out my other posts that provide information on how to get started with reiki! — How do I use reiki on myself? — You can use reiki in a variety of ways, including learning to apply it in certain contexts or locations. For example, meditation is known for helping improve concentration and relieve stress; thus, a common way people benefit from using reiki in self-practice is while meditating. When they meditate they place their hands over their chakras (energy centers) in order to improve energetic flow throughout their bodies.
What will be in my lesson plan and how often should I practice what I’ve learned, if starting from scratch on my own?
The lesson plan in my course is broken down into three levels.If you click this link you will be taken to our page that details what’s inside our extremely comprehensive home study course.
This is a very important because if you don’t have a solid understanding of what Reiki is and how it works, and what you are going to learn over the coming weeks and months you will not be able to progress on to becoming a fully-trained healer.
Nobody can tell you exactly when is enough but this is something you will come to learn for yourself.
