sister bridget: I have a question on this about lineage-how long should the Master teacher's be? I'm going to be taking the level 1 class in March & trying to make up my mind between two teachers one is 4 back & the other is 6. I need your expertise on this- I'm soo excited I can't wait to take the classes held over a weekend. When I mentioned my interest in this to a friend she was so excited as she thought this was perfect for me.

Hi Lucky-
Thanks for writing! I am so excited that you will be learning Reiki! I know you will enjoy it immensely.

Either four or six masters back to Dr Usui is pretty good! There are some folks out there that put alot of stock in length of lineage. I do think lineage is something to be considered, but there are also other questions one should ask a prospective teacher before making a decision:

•  How long have you been working with Reiki? What training have you had? How often do you teach? How do you personally use Reiki? What is your lineage?

•  Will this training initiate me into, or progress me within the Usui lineage? If not, then which lineage is it a part of?

•  What qualifications are required to take Reiki Training?

•  What do you cover in your classes? How many hours of class time is included? How much time is instructional, and how much is hands on practice?

•  What are the specific things I will be able to do after taking the training?

•  What are your fees, and will I receive a certificate and a manual?

•  Can I take notes and tape record the class?

•  How many symbols will I learn?

•  Is there a Reiki support group in my area or can you help me establish one?

•  Will you openly support me in being a successful Reiki practitioner or master?

•  Do you have a positive respectful attitude toward other Reiki practitioners and masters, regardless of lineage or affiliation?

Be aware of how you feel about their answers and if they are responding in a loving manner that is supportive and empowering. Listen to your heart and you will be guided to the right teacher.

Good Luck!

Light and Love

Sister Bridget

Sister Bridget: thanks!! You have been so helpful - you know I was reading your blog a little over a month ago when I stumbled on your piece on Reiki & really got quite intrigued- so I started doing alot of research on it-then i found that a hosp I worked with daily had actually hired Reiki practioners for their own staff which only prompted me to really look for classes in my area. I talked to my mom about & when she heard all the excitement in my voice about she told me to follow my heart & give it a whirl. Then I read a piece on Reiki & crystal healing & I have been drawn to stones & crystal since I was a young child. I help people every day that have been injured but I just feel something has been missing & especially like the Reiki with animals & my fave 2 cats at a shelter were born with cerebral palsy -they are the happiest cats but their struggles to get up & function are heart breaking. If I could learn something that would help them & then all the better. I'm so excited & would like to go up to Master level but I'm taking it one day at a time & we will see where this leads me. I'm so glad to have you as a contact in this. Thanks again!!!

Sister Bridget: I wanted to update you on my new quest with this after months of research I found my teacher yesterday & have been walking on air ever since. I originally thought that I was going to have to travel out of state for my classes but I found a teacher who is a perfect fit for me & only 1/2 hr up the road from me. I will be studying Traditional Usui Reiki with her & my level 1 & 2 classes will be 4/10 & 4/11. Classes are small up to 6 people & she offers the most hrs of hands on practice that I found. She teaches three levels before the Master Teacher level. I will take the 3rd class on 4/24 & then the Master classes in June. I will also this fall be taking the Jikiden Reiki classes all three levels-Sohden, Okuden offered with her to further my studies in this & receive my certification from Tadao Sensei's Jikiden Reiki Institue of Kyoto, Japan-certification is given in English & Japanese. The Master classes are only up to 4 people held over 3 days of 10 hrs each. Best of all once I get my certification, she not only offers but encourages that I come teach with her for further my hands on practice, as well as offers a monday clinic to do work with clients, lifetime support & to be set up on her own website page in the directory of practioners. She also teaches re-fresher classes.

In reading more info on her -somethings I heard where things I have heard & learned not only with Abraham-Hicks but also here with Spellmaker. Its is like we are of like minds, I feel that I am about to embark on another aspect of my journey that is bound to bring more & more wonderful things into my life. I thank you for writing your blog about Reiki & giving me the inspiration to take more steps towards something I feel in my heart is so very right for me & possibly what I have been searching for for so long.

Much love, Lucky Star

Sister Bridget Note: Best of luck to  you, LS. I am sure you will find the experience very rewarding!

I had my level I Reiki class today where I receive two Reiki Attunements & found it so amazing. I was so excited when actually performing a Reiki session with a fellow classmate & felt my hands become very warm in some areas & cool in others. I was wondering if I can use this with my love doll for my HD?
