Learning Reiki: A Student’s Review

Posted on August 30, 2016

Learning Reiki can be a life changing experience, especially during times of despair like during a breakup. Click on this image to read a blog post written by one of my students about her experience learning Reiki healing.

Because the experience of Reiki is so different for each person, I asked one of my students to share her first-hand account of what she learned. Jessica Quan recently completed her Reiki Level One training—here is her personal experience:

The Impact of Daily Self Reiki Practice

I never realized how powerful Reiki could be until I started to practice on myself.

Through practicing the Reiki self-care protocol daily, I not only became more grounded and peaceful, but I truly learned and felt the power of something greater than myself.  For me, it is this spiritual element that serves as the key to empowerment and healing. Furthermore, I learned that self-healing is paramount before being able to impart this gift to others.

My New Morning Routine

The Reiki precepts (principles to live by) have been especially instrumental in grounding me before I start each day. Giving myself Reiki in the mornings is a beautiful way to begin the day, allowing me to have a sound heart and mind.

How Reiki Helped After a Break Up

After Reiki I, I went to see Deborah for a session, which is a different experience than giving myself Reiki. I learned the power of touch from another. While receiving Reiki from a professional practitioner, my body and mind reached a perfect state of peace and relaxation. Physically, I felt the warmth and healing touch from Deborah. At the time, I had just come out of a painful breakup, but I must say that after the session, there was a sense of emotional release and healing with Reiki.

Giving Reiki to Friends & Family

In giving Reiki to others, I learned that this is something I want to do for the rest of my life. My grandmother was a natural healer in Guam. It wasn’t until I learned Reiki and started practicing on others that I realized this gift was inherent within me as well. Taking Reiki I has been one of the most humbling and gratifying experiences in my life. I have found that this is my true purpose.
