One way of looking at the meaning of life and your purpose in it is to believe that there is a perfect plan for your life that is not based on what your parents, teachers and friends want for you, or on what your environment or culture dictates you need to do in order to be accepted, but on what is right and healthy for you and will make you truly happy. This plan springs your core essence and is your true spiritual path. One way of finding it is to surrender completely to the spirit of Reiki, allowing it to guide every area of your life and become your only focus and source of nurturing and sustenance. 

By giving Reiki treatments to yourself and others, and by meditating on the essence of Reiki, you will find Reiki guiding you more and more in making important decisions. Sometimes you will find yourself doing things that do not seem to make sense to what you think you should be doing, and sometimes you will be guided to do things that you have told yourself you never would do. However, by trusting more and more in the guidance of Reiki, you will find your life-changing in ways that bring greater harmony and feelings of real happiness.

You will find that the work with this loving energy is life-changing in all kinds of ways. Reiki is not just a tool for helping others; it is a tool for personal development and for your health and happiness.

Reiki is not about paperwork or a timetable or any other human schedule. It is an energetic practice and therefore can only be experienced energetically. Reiki is a lifetime practice, so there should be no hurry to move to the next level. For each individual, there will be an appropriate time to move on to a new level. Once a student has completed Shoden, it will take time to practice what has been learned, and to adjust to the new level of energy in the body, before moving on to the next level of teaching. Largely, it will depend upon a student’s home situation and the availability of time to practice. A mother with a full-time job and numerous hobbies may have little time to practice. A traveller who has taken 12 months off may have ‘all the time in the world’.
