It requires positive energy to learn Reiki. Our natural energy level is affected by our state of health or dis-ease. We can all relate to the feelings of low energy or depletion that occur when we are trying to heal, whether from physical distress or from mental difficulties like grief or anxiety. A Reiki treatment can be compared to jump starting a car.
When the car’s battery can’t quite provide enough energy to start the car, we attach jumper cables from another battery to add more energy. Reiki is a kind of healing process. This process does not exhaust the practitioner, because the practitioner is trained to channel energy from the outside environment, not from their own personal “battery”.
Practiced in this manner, the energy available is virtually limitless. The amount of energy transferred depends on the client’s ability to use it and willingness to receive it. When no more energy can be used, the transfer ceases to occur.
