If you are a reiki practitioner, what level/style(s) of reiki, and for how long? If you are not a practitioner, is there a particular style of reiki that interests you?

I am 1 week off of having my Reiki II certification, learned at the Reiki School and Clinic. We study the traditional teachings of Mikao Usui.

What is it that drew or led you to reiki (whether to practice it, receive it, or learn more about it)?

My friend introduced me to Reiki by giving it to me. I loved it. I was already interested in alternative healing techniques, and so when she gave me Reiki, it just seemed right for me to learn it. I really want to help people and this seems like a wonderful thing to share with people.

What does reiki mean to you, or what has it done for you?

Reiki is love, a divine connection with the eternal universal life force, a form of motion that relaxes and heals while balancing not just the body, but the soul as well. Reiki is a beautiful light that enters us whether we are aware of it or not. Practicing Reiki has helped me to see and feel this light becoming more and more a part of my life. It has led me to quit my job as a waiter, and to trust in myself that I will manifest exactly what I need to become a better version of myself. With my self-practice to comfort and remind me, I feel more and more confident that I am on the right path.

Do you have any current practices or lifestyles connected to reiki that you would like to share (modalities, beliefs, etc.)?

I believe that everything is meant to happen. That everything that does happen, is OK. Every experience is an opportunity to learn and grow into a more well-rounded individual. We are what we make ourselves. What do you want? I believe that anything we desire is attainable. We just need to realize what it is that we want, trust in ourselves, and then move in the direction that is shown us, through ourselves. I believe that when I die, a part of me will go on. That death will not be the end of my life, that it is only a transition. Transition to what, I do not know. I feel like there is plausibility in reincarnation, that I have lived human lives before this one. I have an old wisdom that I don't think I only learned during this lifetime. I like to think that if I accomplish what I have come to this Earth to do, then I shall evolve and become a higher dimensional being. Do your best, be your best, and love your best.

What would you like to see happen in this Meetup group, AND - what days/times are best for you to meet up?

I would like to see some Reiki Shares. I love giving Reiki, but I also like to receive it. I would like get together with other Reiki practitioners to discuss and share Reiki. My schedule is pretty open right now, other than Wednesday Evenings. After next week, my Wednesdays will be open.


I'm Karl. 23 years old with a desire to help and heal people. I'm living moment to moment right now with the intention to discover how I can do that.
