Good mornin’ all
Structure is good, a format is good, a routine is good, a method is good, but only for as long as you need it.
There will surely come a time when chaos is the order of the day…
When routine goes out the window…
When someone else’s format is no longer suitable for your talent and energy expression…
Here’s a case in point…
Q… Here’s the thing… I took Reiki 2 in New York many years ago, since I was already fairly advanced in other systems, I didn’t feel I had to go further. When I found your Chikara-Reiki-Do Master course I took that, and it’s been excellent.
My question is this, when I took Reiki 1, we held the positions for a full minute, when I advanced to Reiki 2, I was told that half a minute was all that was required. I find it’s adequate, but some people expect the full minute.
What do you say?
p.s… I’m not just an ordinary bloke, I was Louise Hay’s homeopath 🙂
Okay, so my thoughts on this:
Just an observation here, but generally speaking, men like structure and method more than women.
Women can happily go off freelancing and winging it because women’s lives have to be more flexible at a moment’s notice too.
And you probably all know what I’m going to say before I say it, don’t you?
All together now – TRUST yourself 🙂
You may want to just stay in one position for 15-20 minutes and then move on, giving very little time to the other positions and then finish doing the longer held position again.
You see, there is no right or wrong way… simply your intuitive way on THAT day, at THAT moment in time.
Simply TRUST yourself… you do know what to do. Just let your hands guide you.
It’s that easy 🙂
Yes, to start with, the hand positions are a structured guide to help you get going…
…and, in the Therapists Handbook Package, we show you 2 ways of doing a treatment on a client – one lying on a couch and one sitting in a chair.
The chimed music, in the package, helps give you an idea of when to change hand positions too…
But, as with all things Chikara-Reiki-Do… once you feel confident in yourself, you’ll not need to use these frameworks, unless, of course, you wish too 🙂
They’re simply helpful to give structure to a session and to help with timing a session – but you are the power, you are the important factor.
Just remember, the hand positions mean nothing without your hands 🙂
Have a perfickly timed yet flowing and powerful, Chikara-Reiki-Do weekend 🙂
