Reiki & the Pandemic

It was amazing to find out the true value of reiki during the covid pandemic. The first year was amazing. I learned to use Zoom. I was surprised to find out that my students did, too. We never thought it would open us up to a new way of giving and receiving reiki. I brought over sixty students from reiki 1, the beginning teachings of reiki, all the way through Reiki Master or Shinpiden, the secret teachings of the reiki master teacher. This was truly a guided journey for us all. We absolutely found an additional and sacred value in the reiki teachings.

There was little we could do during the lockdown, but, we could study reiki. The amazing part of the journey is how effective the reiki initiations are even without touch or hands-on attunement. Through guided imagery meditation and visualizations led by me, the students achieved access to the many levels of reiki. There were no instructions left behind by Dr. Mikao Usui, the founder of Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai, in the instructions for the original form of practicing reiki or in any of Usui's original notes or handbooks.
