I am a Reiki Master Teacher, and I have always thought of Reiki and intuition as going together—never, ever separate. Recently, I was surprised to learn that some people think of Reiki and intuition separately.
This “news” to me described Reiki as:
-opening pathways in the practitioner to allow Universal Life Force energy to flow through the Reiki practitioner to the client—yes, I agreed
-placing our hands on or above the client to allow this energy to flow to the client—yes, again I agreed
And that was about it.
In my mind, I said, “But there’s SO much more! I know this, I practice this, I TEACH this!! It’s called intuition!”
Using intuition with Reiki is like opening an infinite wisdom that will guide you as you use Reiki on yourself, and others (including animals) to bring a richer experience to the client you are treating. As I teach Reiki, I teach intuition along with it, and inspire my students to “reach for the stars” as they gain this valuable tool to use with Reiki, and also in their day-to-day lives. Daily, intuition can help you decide which route to drive to your destination, possibly missing congested traffic along the way. It can help you in smaller decisions like which hat to wear for the day, or if and when you should take that trip to the mountains or the lake. Intuition takes practice, practice, practice, and will grow and develop the more you use it. It may feel bumpy and strange at first, but the more you use intuition, the more you will rely on it, and the more you will be amazed and grateful by this inner guidance.
