Can anyone become a “Reiki” healer?

Everybody can learn to master their own energies. With proper tutelage, anybody can learn to manipulate certain external energies as well. I think there are also a number of more appropriate questions to ask in light of the fact that we are energetic beings. Thermodynamic beings to be precise.

Has anybody at any time actually been responsible for consciously conducting energy in such a way that it was responsible for healing? Non-local healing has been a buzzword for about a decade, I think.

If yes, then how broadly is this art applicable? Can it be replicated at will? Can data be accumulated through observation? Has it ever been? Why or why not?

霊気, or rei-ki, in Japanese, means energy of the spirit.

If we are, in fact, spiritual beings sharing a human experience, as Pierre Chardin would have us believe, and if the spirit is, in fact, an energetic form beyond the 3D viz. physical-mental-emotional makeup that we are accustomed to expressing ourselves through, then of course anybody may learn to express themselves in any manner in which energy is capable of being expressed through a human or conscious conduit. And there are many arts that look into this deeply.

Chinese healing arts are among the most ancient and include Qigong, and even Tai Chi comes to mind.

I would ask, why Reiki, and suggest one might look deeper into 合気、Aiki , better known as Aikido. The Path of the Meeting of Energies. Or Kung Fu. Mastery of that Way has also been known to be applicable to the healing arts.

Master Usui was a monk, intimately familiar with the Japanese way of animism, as well as the Buddhist energy arts of the Tendai sect. He practiced arts that were not his own, until he made them his own, and developed his own path, similar to how Bruce Lee mastered Kung Fu to go on to create Jeet Kun Do. And you can do that, too.

The world is full of magic! And yes, it’s accessible to anyone. Consider the magic of your own self, before going in search of power spots. Yes, aligning with the land is a good thing, too, but it really does begin at home, with you as the source and conduit of any universal energy.

Check out the Health & Healing Challenge in my program library if you feel you’re motivated enough to really begin a process of aligning your vessel for the very great work of becoming a conduit that will be able to channel and foster others’ healing. At the very least you will gain vitality!
