Level 3
 Lesson 1 Reiki Master 2

Reiki Master/Teacher

Becoming a Reiki Master is the final steps to help people heal. You become even more powerful in your energies. You get access to more symbols and healing methods. You also have the opportunity to strengthen the recipient''s own healing process by initiating them to the level of Reiki Master.
As a Reiki Master you begin to move into even closer contact with life''s energies, which makes you feel more connected to everyone and everything. Suddenly you begin to understand every cell in your body and how important every person, every event, and everything is. Being able to communicate this experience to others is a privilege!
With the help of Reiki, we can, throughout a person''s energy, heal on the smallest levels. We can also help the person to get in touch with their Higher Selves. But if the person is not ready, the person will re-create their blocks faster than we can blink. Most people feel secure with their blocks because they feel that blocks are an important part of their personality. Without humility, unconditional love and respect for individuals, our healing can make them feel as naked as if they were torn away from who they are and their identity.
Although Reiki has incredible capabilities, it is important to achieve happiness, harmony, and a healthy body. It is not the energy per say, but our approach. We have to be willing to release our blockages. The big difference comes from our way of life and our spiritual guidance. Healing is an amazing and valuable assistance, but we must remember that it is perfectly possible to create health and harmony without the use of energy. But using Reiki can help one progress quicker by working on the mental and emotional, thus bringing a change within the body itself.
There are many who are looking for some kind of universal tricks (healing, exercises, medication or denial) to remove anything that does not feel good without that person having to change. In practice, they seek a way to cool off the hand they hold in the fire, instead of taking the hand from the fire. Our goal as a Master is to help inspire people to voluntarily want to move their hand from the fire.

Working as a Teacher

What Kirkegard is trying to say with his statement on the above page is that if we are to teach, we should first interview our prospective student so that we know what skills the student has and start from there. Some students may have worked with other healing forms and thus they have a lot of knowledge about healing in general, and others are complete novices and need a more basic understanding of what healing is and how to use it.
These words are true whether you have courses where you meet people face to face or if you have them on the internet.

  • Questions that might be good to ask are:
  • What made you want to join this course?
  • Do you have any prior experience in the healing?
  • If you had other healing courses what were they?
  • What did you think of those courses
  • Was there anything you did not understand or like about the courses?
  • Have you been giving healing to others?
  • Have you received healing from others?
  • How have you experienced giving healing to others?
  • How have you experienced receiving the healing of others?


When you have a course you have as a rule, some surveys of how students should implement things. You may view them and they can try on each other or the teacher. When you have these things in the lessons it is also good and important as well to go through things that are not included. For it is easy, otherwise, for your students to think you''re boring and stop listening.

When you have online courses, this is just as important if not more so. Your manual cannot be too big as it may scare away some and if you want to have both online and off line courses you would need to have two different types of manuals, unless you choose to think through properly what it is you want teach them and for an online course to try to write down what lessons instead. It need not be so strange, but imagine that you will have an off-line course, what would you want or need to say to your students so they get as much as possible from the material.
For Reiki Level 1 for example, you could have
  • Presentation - except who you are, it is possible to take the questions above to help
  • Goals and objectives of the course
  • To get an idea of what healing is
  • To get an understanding of what Reiki is and is not
  • Why attunements in Reiki, which is not present in all forms of healing
  • The importance of meditation (and affirmations)
  • The importance of keeping a diary
  • What is it to be treated in this course
  • Reiki history
  • How to use Reiki
  • Basic positions to treat themselves and others
  • What is important if you receive a client
  • In addition to the positions, what more is required?
  • Laws, ethics and morals
  • Before you start a treatment
  • After a treatment
  • Learning the scan of a person
  • (Possibly how to use the symbol Cho Ku Rei)
  • What you may be expected to cope with after you have undergone and passed this course
  • Extra material, something you think is important but not included in this basic guide

Everything that is calculated here does not necessarily come in the order listed here, but do what suits you best. It is not necessary that each point will correspond to thirty minute speeches or 1-2 A4 pages of text. So do not be intimidated, but think about what you learned or what you would have liked to have learned when you joined your course. Start from there and if there is a sentence that needs to be added, or a paragraph written, it is not so important once you know what it is you want to say.
