Some Reiki Master Teacher Questions

A version of these questions came through via email. I thought other people might be interested in the very thorough answers, too, so I’m posting an anonymous version of the questions with my replies:

I was wondering what was required of you by your Reiki Master Teacher in order for you to be attuned to that level?

Thanks for your message. I took Reiki Level 3 Master and then Reiki Level 3 Master Teacher in early 2002. These levels feature the same attunement and very similar material, but Reiki Level 3 Master Teacher focuses on how to teach the course, as well as how to give Initiation Attunements. Reiki Level 3 Master only teaches the Reiki Healing Attunement, not initiation ones. I was certified after taking both classes, but I ended up apprentice teaching for a year with my teacher, who was also my partner, and then husband.

We had both practiced other healing modalities, but I’ve found Reiki the most powerful when used regularly. My then husband had three different Reiki Master Teachers for his Level 3 training and extrapolated what he felt was most important and consistent from each of them. He had also studied with Buddhist monks, and so incorporated some of that material as background to Usui’s Buddhist heritage. When he got Lyme disease, I began teaching Reiki on my own and studied numerous Reiki books, kundalini yoga, and other healing and energy modalities.

In terms of what I require of my own Level 3 students, it depends on if it’s an in-person or private correspondence class for Reiki Level 3 Master Teacher. I stopped teaching just the plain Reiki Master Class, because I found so many students took that class not thinking they would ever teach, only to find that they now feel called to teach. They have the correct Attunement, but not the training or knowledge of Initiation Attunements. I teach Reiki Level 3 Master Teacher with the idea of “if you really want to know something, teach it.” Exploring this level through the lens of “if you were to teach Reiki 1, 2, or 3, how would you do so?” helps students to learn the material in a deeper way.

Students are certified after they complete the course, but I encourage ongoing practice, auditing of any classes I teach, and I am in process of creating some guided practice journals for both Levels 2 and 3. In-person Level 3 is usually a 1-day in person course from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. with a lunch break; however, I give handouts ahead of time, as well as exercises and future auditing opportunities. For private correspondence training, I offer six 1-hour long phone sessions, plus handouts, homework and practice requirements. About half my Level 3 students already received Level 3 training from a different Reiki Master Teacher, but take the training from me so that they feel much better prepared to train others.

I’ve trained many dozens of Reiki Master Teachers over the years, many who had other teachers before me, so I know that this level varies widely, both in cost and scope. I have had some students who did a year-long apprenticeship with different teachers for thousands of dollars, but in the end, they did not begin teaching on their own until training with me. I teach the Usui lineage with the Tibetan symbols, since that’s how I learned, and I find value in the Tibetan symbols. I try to strike a balance between thoroughness, some self-direction, and lower cost than a formal apprenticeship would require. Hopefully that answers your question.

Thank you for this valuable information. I guess my main question is based on what my current Reiki Master Teacher is implying and that is that I have to go thru some kind of crisis in my life in order to be attuned to Master Teacher. Is this normal with all Usui practices?

No, I wouldn’t say it’s a normal requirement. The Initiation Attunements are like telling the Universe, “I’m ready for the next level. I’m committed to this next level.” If you don’t have resistance, then things just open up in a natural way. Sometimes people have resistance, or old things come up that make the need for change obvious. It can occur before or after initiation, and many times initiation to Level 3 is more of a confirmation of being on path. I do not require anyone to have a crisis in order to be initiated. Embracing ones path usually helps to avoid crises, or at least make the most of them if they arrive anyway. 🙂

Applying to take Reiki Master Teacher training through me requires at least Reiki Level 2 Certification, plus some back and forth emailing to make sure I feel you’re ready and that we’re a good student-teacher fit.

Possible Reiki 1 Class in Kalamazoo this Fall

I had all but decided not to offer anymore Reiki Level 1 or 2 classes until 2019; however, four people in the past week have inquired about Reiki Level 1. Not everyone’s local to Kalamazoo, but I do pay attention to synchronicities. If you have interest in learning Reiki Level 1 from me sometime this Fall, please contact me with some good dates for you in mid-October to mid-November.

I’ve got my September trip to Lake Tahoe to co-teach “Living a More Magickal Life” with faery sis Tania Marie. (We still have a few spots left for the Fall Equinox class.) Other than that, I’m focusing most of my energy on phone sessions and completing my metaphysics of Lyme disease book. If enough people want a Reiki Level 1 class this Fall, I’ll do my best to make it happen, but the more time I have to figure out timing, the better. The Reiki 1 class would be at our home in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Participants would become certified Reiki Level 1 Practitioners, able to perform Reiki on themselves and others.

April 2018 Specials

Given how many people are going through profound healing shifts right now, I feel led to continue the March 40-Minute Medical Intuitive Special through April 2018. Today and tomorrow mark the last days to purchase the “Grace in the Workplace Special,” details of which you can find here. April seems primarily focused on healing, with a Reiki Special, too:

40-Minute Medical Intuitive Special

Save 25% ($44) off the usual rate for a 40-Minute Medical Intuitive Reading.

Medical Intuition is the ability to access information about physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health through “reading” the energy field around the body. A Medical Intuitive session decodes the message(s) from soul to body into language your conscious mind can understand and begin to address. It is not meant to replace traditional medical or psychological treatment, and it is not any form of medical or psychological treatment.

Instead, Medical Intuitive readings look for the root cause of continuing symptoms or conditions. Without addressing the root cause, even the “right” treatments or treatment providers fail to find a cure … or … a person continues to experience one new issue after another. By locating the root cause, a Medical Intuitive reading allows the individual to understand what the soul wants, so that healing can move through all the levels, including physical.

$133 (instead of the usual $177) for 40 minutes, if purchased on or before 4/30/18. Please contact me to sign up.

 

$77 Reiki Special

Save $8 off the usual rate for an hour of long distance Reiki, an ancient healing method rediscovered in the 19th century by the Japanese monk Dr. Mikao Usui. The “Rei” in Reiki stands for “universal” or” spiritual,” and the “ki” corresponds to the “life force energy” known as “Chi” or “prana” in other Eastern systems of healing and energy work such as feng shui, Tai Chi, Qigong, or yoga.

Thus, Reiki refers to “universal life force energy,” “divinely directed healing energy,” or “life energy of a spiritual nature,” with an emphasis on subtle energy fields rather than the physical body. By working on all the different levels, Reiki helps the body to relax into a state that allows optimal self-healing. Reiki can also empower and support intentions and events.

This session can be scheduled for a specific time delivery while you meditate or relax, or I can set the session for delivery while you’re in deep, receptive sleep. Depending on your needs, the hour can also get delivered during an important meeting, travel or other event.

Please contact me to sign up, and share (briefly) what you’d like to support, empower or heal. If you have specific timing in mind, please share that as well. $77 (instead of the usual $85) if prepaid on or before 4/30/18.

Rune Soup ~ Talking the Power of Eight with Lynne McTaggert

I finally had a chance to listen to what my friend Mitch describes as “one of Gordon [White]’s best podcasts ever,” and I agree. This one’s truly excellent.

Lynne McTaggert talks about her book, “The Power of Eight,” and their fascinating discussion touches upon scientific studies of prayer, intentions, Reiki, chanting, meditation and healing on all levels. I love how Lynne’s research backs up something I tell people all the time in sessions and Reiki classes: that offering healing energy and prayers for others has profound healing effects on the sender, as well as the receiver. According to Lynne’s research, the sender receives exponentially more benefits than the receiver!

This podcast runs an hour. Given that the powerful techniques described take mere minutes, you’ll likely find it an hour well spent.

8-Day Wheel of the Year Special

Here we are at 1/8/18, and I feel led to open this opportunity for the next eight days. Over the years, many clients, friends, and blog readers have inquired about my own personal holidays — or, rather, Holy Days — intrigued by the way that big events in David’s and my life seem to unfold in a cyclical order of richly layered meaning and inspired action. In private sessions, clients ask about opportune times for various tasks or intentions, as well as ways to deepen and enrich their journey.  So many times, Turns of the Wheel of the Year present themselves as powerful openings for conscious alignment.

Many cultures recognize some version of the Wheel of the Year. Just look at crossovers among holidays: Candlemas, Imbolc/Oimelc, Groundhog’s Day, and St. Bridget’s Day, around the beginning of February (in the Northern Hemisphere); Halloween, All Hallow’s Eve, Samhain, Dia de los Muertos, All Saint’s Day in late October/early November; all the festivals of light around Winter Solstice — Christmas, Hanukkah, Mother Night, Yule, Pancha Ganapati, Soyal, and Midwinter Christmas/Christmas in July and Inti Raymi in late June/early July in the Southern Hemisphere.

Honoring and celebrating the Wheel of the Year reclaims secular or religious holidays and seasonal shifts as eight windows of “time out of time,” when the veils grow very thin. Whether we use such times as a reflective pause or to align ourselves with natural cycles, the Wheel of the Year invites us to partner with the Dance of Life.

This $888 8-Day Special will run from 1/8/18 through 1/15/18 and includes eight 40-minute sessions (one scheduled before each Turn of the Wheel, beginning in late January 2018), plus a Reiki Healing Attunement at each Turn. These private sessions will be intuitively tailored to you (and your hemisphere), helping you to recognize synchronicities and supportive energies, as well as to clarify focus, intentions, meditations of your heart, rituals, Earth healing, personal healing, and/or discernment about how to make the most of these openings.

If you’ve felt called to embrace a deeper connection with the Land and a more soulful experience of time, the 8-Day Wheel of the Year Special offers a discounted bundle of eight sessions and eight Reiki Healing Attunements in order to support and deepen your quest. This $888 bundle saves $968 off an individual investment of $1,856 and also represents my commitment to fit you in for a session prior to each Turn of the Wheel. Please contact me to sign up. Offer expires 1/15/18, because we will need time to schedule before our first Turn in late January/early February.

Amazing Orgone

Anyone who’s heard of Wilhelm Reich has probably heard of “orgone” or “orgone energy.” I have always considered orgone synonymous with Reiki — literally “universal life force energy” — except that Reiki represents only the positive qualities of that energy, whereas Wilhelm Reich also found something that corresponded to its opposite. He called this energy DOR, “Deadly ORgone.” People who’ve studied Reich’s work refer to POR (Positive ORgone” energy) vs. DOR, and a major improvement over his “orgone accumulators” has included finding ways to transmute DOR into POR, rather than a device gathering massive amounts of toxic energy that needed disposal and could gravely injure the operator.

All of this might sound a bit woo-woo and paranoid, especially to people who’ve experienced the healing effects of Reiki. If universal life force energy heals, then does DOR even exist? And if so, what would it be? Well, scientists are finally catching up to what sensitives have known for millennia: energy can flow harmoniously, or someone or something can mess with that energy so that it causes harm. Think Atlantis (for those who believe in and/or remember what happened there); the ancient Indian war of mahabharatha (long suspected to have been a nuclear war); EMF radiation; nuclear waste; the recent study showing that plants won’t grow near WiFi routers; the Amish rejection of electricity running into their homes; the myriad reports of sickness and even death from SMART meters.

As someone who acutely feels all the subtle and strong shifts in energy (that is, after all, a huge part of how I earn my living), I have long known of the toxic effects of DOR. I just never used that term. Instead, I avoid electrical appliances whenever I can. I don’t own a TV and with the exception of two years after my brain injury when I used an old Grandma Van TV to watch videos, I’ve never owned a television. My iPhone has a SARS shield on it, because when I first got it, I felt ill even having that equipment in the house, let alone in my own hand. The radiation from the iPhone 4S was so strong that it triggered brain injury symptoms and headaches like I’ve not had since the first two weeks of my 1998 brain injury. After trying numerous shields, I had all but given up, until my SARS shield arrived. That allows me to use the phone for texting, emails and web surfing, but I mostly just use it for voicemails and a backup session phone. I don’t speak on it except for very good reason.

After my brain injury, I became overwhelmingly sensitive to the flicker of fluoresecent lights. Yes, scientists now tell us that they’re filled with mercury, and many people experience headaches from their hum or greenish hue. For me, it’s the frequency of the flicker, which I see as obviously as a strobe light — and I will just say, that flicker is not aiming to make energy more harmonious. At first, even shopping in a grocery store would give me massively peaking migraines that lasted a week or more. I first began shopping at Whole Foods in Evanston, IL because they originally didn’t have fluorescent lights! What a treat, until they, too, switched to the “environmentally friendly” (and cheaper) fluorescent bulbs.

Studies show that flying exposes people to megadoses of harmful radiation, and cancers tend to proliferate in people living near high tension wires. Then we’ve got solar flares and CME’s, which can throw people way off balance, cause heart palpitations and all manner of undiagnosable symptoms. I’ve written about ways to deal with those here. The sun itself isn’t toxic or “evil,” but the intensity of radiation and the geomagnetic storms caused by such blasts can definitely disrupt the delicate balance of electromagnetic energy in humans.

Besides these examples, we’ve had recent reports of “lone shooters” who claimed they were being manipulated by ELF (Extremely Low Frequency) attacks. According to a Washington Times article:

“Derrick Robinson, President of Freedom from Covert Harassment and Surveillance (FFCHS), a victim advocacy group which attests to be ‘composed of at least 2,500 educated, articulate and intelligent Americans, all of whom recite identical symptoms of satellite and land based microwave and ELF signal weapon attacks’ provides Communities at WashingtonTimes.com a written response to yesterday’s FBI statement about the Aaron Alexis investigation and ELF waves.

“’There is an abundance of evidence proving the existence that ELF and microwave signal technology and weapons that deliver voice-to-skull transmissions to unwitting victims is wide spread and pervasive, according to government scientific reports,’ states Robinson.

“‘According to FFCHS, Derrick Robinson is a former U.S. Navy serviceman assigned to the National Security Agency’s linguistics communications division, who was attacked more than a decade ago for his personal lifestyle choices.

“’The signals remotely tap into the central nervous system and not only deliver voice transmissions but also trigger painful body and in particular, groin shocks, involuntary muscular movements and internal burning sensations, among other terrifying conditions,’ says Robinson.”

All of which is to say that yes, I believe there’s ample evidence that DOR exists. I’ve had great success with my Qlink pendant, Reiki, various crystals (especially black jade, sodalite, tourmaline, carnelian, charoite, and red jasper), Runes (THORN and AR), and titanium or “healers gold” bracelets. Although I used to walk around like a drunken sailor during solar flares, I now simply feel juiced whenever they occur. I’ve also found that all these techniques and items helped to make living with WiFi and a SMART meter much more tolerable.

However … even with a SARS shield placed directly on our SMART meter, which pumps out bad mojo below our bedroom, I would still wake up feeling fried. It’s much, much better than when we first moved in, but until last week, I would begin each day feeling ever so slightly hungover. So would David, but in his case, plenty of other factors could explain that away — intense training for new jobs, crazy schedule, etc. In my case, I was pretty sure it resulted from the SMART meter below and cable line right outside the wall where we sleep. We can’t put our bed anywhere else, so I just compensated as best I could with loads of crystals, a Ganesha image, my Qlink, and various bracelets on the nightstand. It was tolerable, unlike when we first moved in, when my electromagnetic system felt totally controlled by an outside force, but it was certainly not healing or ideal.

A couple weeks ago, I was surfing around on rense.com, when I saw an ad for “Orgonia.” I’d noticed it before as a bastion of calm on that otherwise rather doomy-gloomy site, but I’d never clicked. When I did, I found all these delightful plaques and desk statues filled with orgone. They were also offering a deal of “buy five orgone pucks, get one free.” Something told me to give it a try, so I bought five (six) and awaited their arrival.

I didn’t unpack all of them at once. I did them one, by one, beginning with our WiFi router. The first thing I noticed was that the office suddenly felt joyful. Whereas I had found myself wanting out of that room most of the time, I actually began to crave sitting at my desk. Hmmmm. I had heard that the worse the location’s DOR, the more the orgone pucks supposedly generate greater quantities of positive orgone. I wondered, but came to no conclusions yet.

Next, I put an orgone puck inside our house, right in front of where our SMART meter stands outside. Even though I’ve had that area loaded up with all manner of protective crystals and intentions, I immediately felt relief. The energy shifted from frantically trying to mitigate and harmonize negativity to feeling almost like fresh Spring air inhaled in a field of flowers. No, I’m not exaggerating!

For the third experiment, I decided to place an orgone puck on the shelf of our bed frame, right behind my head. Wow, did I have a good night’s sleep! Still, every once in awhile that happens, so I felt it was too soon to tell. I’ve continued to have incredibly restful night’s sleep, though, and I awake feeling refreshed, almost like someone’s given me Reiki all night long! I unwrapped the next puck and snuck it behind David’s head on his side of the bed. Lo and behold, he started waking up at 4:45 a.m. refreshed and energized instead of wiped out. Other factors have settled down, too, but the timing remains quite interesting.

I distributed the last two pucks — one behind my laptop, and one behind a portal door near where I spend the most time downstairs. I often sit on the BioMat downstairs, which also generates really great energy that protects from EMF’s, but I’ve noticed that I enjoy sitting there now, even without the BioMat. In fact, I’ve not used the BioMat for several days, and I still feel fabulous. I’ve also found that for the first time ever, I actually enjoy working on my laptop instead of feeling like I need to hurry up and complete my tasks before it zaps me. In fact, I cannot believe how dramatically these orgone pucks have affected my everyday experience! I don’t get any kind of compensation for any of the products mentioned in this post, but I’ve felt such positive results that I wanted to share the information with my readers.

Last night I did more research and found that you can make your own orgone towerbusters (or pucks), but the process creates some toxic fumes. No thanks! At $5.99 per puck, with a sixth one free, I feel like the Christmas Orgonia deal is well worth my money. In researching gardens and orgone energy, I discovered these amazing photos from an experiment in identical gardens, one with orgone generators and one without. I was inspired to check for the effects of orgone after listening to some dire reports about Fukushima’s effects on all foods grown in the Northern Hemisphere.

I track radiation via my own internal Geiger counter, and Leuren Moret’s assessments jive with mine. She recommends using a BioMat, following a macrobiotic diet and many of the things I listed in an earlier article about radiation and diet. From a Medical Intuitive perspective, I’ve also noticed that clients and friends who embody and pass along the most positive healing energies are actually thriving on the Fukushima radiation, whereas ones who refuse to share their spiritual and creative gifts are noticeably struggling, oftentimes from illnesses directly associated with radiation poisoning.

I keep saying, “It’s evolve or die time,” and I’m not kidding. If you have gifts, please pass them on. As with Reiki, whenever you give a treatment, you receive one, too, because of the positive energy that flows through you. Share your gifts with the world, whatever they are. The process of passing along the good vibrations may well save your life. The energies on this planet are shifting so that they will eventually no longer support parasites and vampiric energies. No time like the present to ensure you’re giving and receiving in balanced ways, and if you must, erring on the side of offering more than you demand in return.

I have personally found tremendous support from the Universe when volunteering to help people whom I know will do something positive and pass along the helping hand; however, my ability to support those who take, take, take no longer receives energetic support. Because I’m not being replenished to support people who refuse to share their gifts, doing so quickly depletes me to levels that I cannot sustain. The past year has been really interesting in how many imbalanced “friendships” have disappeared in a huff when I mentioned that I could not continue to offer the overwhelming support. I haven’t requested return support. I’ve merely mentioned a need to funnel my own energy into other people and projects. Whoosh! You would not believe how fast those “friends” have shoved me away. The incredible relief that follows is also quite telling. Some “losses” are really gains, and the Universe has more than replaced those friendships with others who truly do expand and breathe their gifts with a “pay it forward” attitude.

In my research last night, I discovered at least anecdotal evidence for orgone neutralizing the negative effects of radiation. Wilhelm Reich considered nuclear energy to be DOR manifest, and he conducted numerous experiments in the same locales as nuclear testing. Wherever he worked, planned nuclear tests kept getting delayed and delayed, many planned ones never even occurring in areas where he had constructed various orgone accumulators, generators and neutralizers. People have also had success building their own orgone chemtrail busters with large copper pipes, crystals and metal shavings. You can find instructions at various places online. In the past, I’ve always worked with Nature Spirits to neutralize the skies above me and to shift any perceived HAARP activity in my region. I always felt their effort, though, and concentrating that much energy to create a shift — though effective — has always felt at least mildly depleting. After my amazing experiences with the orgone pucks, I may experiment this Spring and Summer with chemtrail busters and additional orgone generators. Looking at the effects on plants and clouds, how can I not?

I encourage people to do their own research and experiments. For myself, I have now added orgone pucks to my top line of tools, which includes Reiki and Runes — both of which work with the same universal life force energy. Nothing in this post constitutes medical advice or a healing claim. I just wanted to share what I’ve learned, because it has truly blown me away. I’ve tried a lot of things and experienced and witnessed a lot of miracles, but these orgone pucks have me dancing around and whooping it up. Something so easy, so simple and so effortless … powerful stuff!

Last Day to Sign Up for July Specials

JULY SPECIALS

$77 Medical Intuitive Sessions

Lots of healing in the works these days! As such, I’ve been “informed” that the first July Special is a Medical Intuitive Session sale to help support people getting over that healing hump.

Medical Intuition is the ability to access information about physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health through reading the energy field around the body. A Medical Intuitive Session decodes the message(s) from soul to body into language your conscious mind can understand and begin to address. (It is not meant to replace traditional medical treatment, but rather to empower your healing via whatever modality you ultimately choose.) Medical Intuitive Readings are normally $175 per hour or $90 per half hour.

Medical Intuitive sessions purchased today through 7/31/13, will be discounted to $77 per half hour, which can be doubled or tripled for longer sessions.

$44 Reiki Healing Attunements

With all the people around the world facing core issues and finding all the pieces synchronously rearranging into place, it feels like a lot of people are ready to make a quantum leap. Reiki Healing Attunements are not for everyone. If you’re just beginning your healing journey and, for whatever reason (no shame) don’t feel like it’s quite time to embrace all the related mental/emotional/spiritual issues, then a gentler Reiki Treatment seems more appropriate. A Reiki Treatment helps your body to relax so that it can more deeply heal on all levels — at your own pace.

A Reiki Healing Attunement is much more dramatic. It’s not an initiation to become a Reiki Practitioner; however, it is an initiation of sorts. A Reiki Healing Attunement consciously and strongly amplifies your commitment and intention to making a quantum leap — whether that means leaving an illness, situation or recurrent pattern behind. Reiki Healing Attunements are kind of like rocket boosters, providing extra energy to lift you out of the gravitational pull of whatever has held you back. You may not see an immediate (as in that day or next day) result, but the RHA’s function like an initiation ritual, so that at the deepest levels, you know you’ve moved on. Reality unfolds from that place.

As I said above, Reiki Healing Attunements are not for everyone; they’re for people who’ve already done a lot of inner work and honest self-assessment and know they desire the next level — much sooner rather than later. I rarely offer specials on these, but at this time, I’m hearing from so many people at that quantum leap place that I feel called to list this Special, too. Reiki Healing Attunements $44 if purchased on or before 7/31/13 (Save $11 from the usual rate.)

Please contact me if you’d like to sign up for either or both of the July Specials.
