I've decided to start my second filter. This filter is only for friends who are Reiki Masters. Obviously there's an honor system to this, as I won't require you send me your certificate or anything. If you are a Reiki Practitioner who has not taken the Master attunement yet, please wait until your Master/Teacher attunement. I know there's passion and enthusiasm, but all things in their due time. My entries will not substitute proper instruction.

The main reason I'm starting the RM filter is because I am looking to begin teaching now. I've promised several friends some classes, but kids, doula-ing, and life keep throwing me off track. If I have friends who are helping and encouraging me in this, I will likely stay on track and devote the proper energy to this. My main short-term goal is to put together a good Reiki I worksheet & class plan, so that I can offer classes for my sister, who is healing, and several other interested friends.

I also believe in the power of distance classes when enthusiastic people live in an area that is not familiar with Reiki. I have at least two online friends who have not found Reiki classes (or practitioners!) anywhere locally, and they are hoping to take distance courses with me. I know some Reiki Teachers frown upon this, but I believe in the distance power of Reiki and that this wonderful healing method should be available for all. So I'm just letting you know up front that this is something I'm interested in pursuing.

If you are a Reiki Master of any tradition, feel free to comment here to be added. If your school breaks up the Master and Teacher courses, I would still encourage you to be added if you're interested, if only to watch the process as one RM begins. If you would like to be added and we are not on each other's f-list, that is a prerequisite, so please friend me when you make your request.

Thanks so much for your help and support in this!

Thank you, aydira, that's refreshing to know! I have no doubts that distance attunements work, but some RMs frown upon it. I think a prevalence of 'scams' has made people jaded.

Glad to know yours worked well. The thing about distance courses is, I would probably actually demand more from my distance courses, since I'd want to be sure the students are putting forth effort. Attunements will work regardless of whether they do the course work, but I feel that it is my duty as a teacher to make sure that the Reiki teachings are passed on and grasped fully.

I'd love to hear sometime about what you felt did or did not work with your classes. The reason I want RMs for this filter is because I don't know anyone other than my personal Reiki Master who I could brainstorm and discuss these things with. For instance, I'd love to read your manual! LOL

I'm so flattered that you always look forward to my posts. You are my first friend on the filter! Thanks! (PS: It's now your sacred duty to ride my rear and keep me on track....:P )

I've not posted anything to the filter yet. I'm hoping that tonight after the kiddies sleep, I can sit down and do a list of goals or brainstorming or something.

as usual the Universe has perfect timing
I've been hoping to do the same but I have a lot of fear surrounding my level of knowledge, my "credentials" as compared to other practitioners etc...Participating in your journey this way would certainly be an inspiration and I hope I have guidance to pass on and I know I have support to offer.

I am a Usui Reiki Master and Kundalini Reiki Master, along with a few other attunements but I believe it all stems from one Reiki source.

Anyway, I hope that you will accept me not only into your Reiki Master filter list but also as a friend. I'd ask about the kink filter too but I don't want to be too pushy on my first comment ;)

Re: as usual the Universe has perfect timing
It's great how the universe always works that way! You seem super-cool, and I've added you as a friend and to the RM filter. I'm honore to share my path with you! I agree with you - Reiki all comes from the same Source, regardless of how we humans choose to teach it. (I feel the same way about religion, too...)

If you decide you'd like to be added to the kink filter, feel free to comment there and I'll add you. I've actually made several of my new friends that way. And once you got to poking around over there, you'd quickly realize that I've got nothing against being pushy. ;)

I saw your post on healers circle and ive just friended you. I was learning reiki locally and lost my transportation, was ill for a long while and the group broke up and I've had trouble locating anyone. I recently decided that its something I really need to do-despite the seeming impossibility-and so I prayed about it and left it up to the universe and maybe a week or two has passed and I saw your post. I have the diane stein book mentioned above and I've been doing healing for many years but I'm not a reiki anything yet-Ive yet to receive my first attunement. I would still like to read your posts tho-if thats ok?

Oh, of course that's ok! I'm always glad to meet new friends, and it looks like we share several of the same interests. I've happily added you back. I'm sorry you've been ill - I'd be happy to add you to my distance healings if you want.

your RM filter
Hi, I'm an usui Reiki master and have been feelin the pull to expand my circle since I moved in 2002. I have been nudged a few times that solitary was fitting for a time but that has passed. I have not passed attunments for any one save my neice for two years.I have practiced distance healing for the entire time for those who would accept it.I have a feelin that being honered with your adding me to your circle would bring me into the community once more.

Feel free to friend me if you wish. I ask that I could welcome you to my list as well.

I will comment more if our circles intersect....lol

Re: your RM filter
Hello, brihanon! It is my honor to friend you and add you to my RM filter. I was just doing a session this morning, asking for more RM friends. I realized that I know very few.

It looks like we share several interests as well, and my mom's name is Christy. ;) I'm also winning the weight loss battle. I'm very interested in Weight Watchers, and I hope you'll share more of your experiences with that. I haven't had the money to sign up, but I've been considering it. Right now I'm just doing slim-fast and eating more healthily, but it's discouraging doing it on my own. :P We have that Curves place locally, too, so I'm trying to decide between the two.

Anyway, you can now read my f-locked posts. I haven't written anything on my RM filter as of yet, but I'm hoping to sit down and do a good Reiki post tonight, and help clarify my teaching goals. I'm glad to see you're a teacher. I know little about it, although I've done lots of research on homeschooling.

there are many posts here that i haven't read so i hope that i will not be asking the same question someone else has.

i am just wondering what you plan to do. by filter do you mean something on livejournal or do you mean something that you will use as a list to send distance reiki to others? i'm a reiki master, i don't remember if i told you that already. i would be interested in seeing what you plan to do, and helping with anything that is needed of me.

let me know~

whoops
(Sorry I replied twice - I totally messed up that code)


Filters are the same as locks, and are livejournal specific. For instance, if you add me to your friend list, my posts will show up on your friends page and I'll be able to see your friend-locked posts. That's the basic filter. People not on your f-list can't see f-locked posts.

If I add you back, you will also be able to see my f-locked posts. I also have the option of adding you to one of my custom friends groups, or filters. If you're on my Reiki Master filter, you'll see the posts that are locked and available to my RM friends only. These will mostly be focusing on my burgeoning path as a Master/Teacher. I'm hoping to meet more friends who are Reiki Masters and who can share their experiences with me, offer feedback and criticism, and generally just share the journey with me. I've just noticed that you're not on my F-list, so I'll go ahead and add you now. Would you like to be on the RM filter as well? I'd love it if you decided to friend me back.

Thank you for adding me to your friend list. I read your profile - it looks like there is so much I could learn from you! I'm very thankful today. I did a Reiki session and asked to make more Reiki friends, and with your request now, the number of friends on my RM filter has doubled today. :)

I'll look forward to getting to know you more.

Many Blessings,

Interesting group
Good morning, at least it is where I am. hehehe.. I am, as it appears most of us here are, an Usui Reiki Master. I've taught a number of classes and absolutely LOVE sharing my time and energy with my students and clientele!... My dream is to create a wellness center where I can hold classes as well as have a dedicated space for energy work. I live out in the woods on 8 acres of forest and my hubby is growing suspicious as I look to the guest house with covetted plans.. hehehe... he knows that eventually I'll move out of the little room downstairs and take over this little outbuilding. I have to admit being one of the somewhat sceptical about distance attunements.. that being said, I'm very open minded and I do know that distance reiki works. As such, I have to believe that the attunements can be as effective. I really just need to do some further research, so please be patient with my own learning curve.

In any event... I'd love to join your filter... if.. you'll have me.

Namaste!

Re: Interesting group
Hello, Willo! Thank you for joining my f-list and RM filter. Of course I'm happy to have you! :) It looks like we have several interests and communities in common. I would ask if you'd friend me back as well, though, if you don't mind.

Your wellness center sounds absolutely wonderful. I'd definitely love to follow along as you make that dream a reality.

And a healthy dose of skepticism is always fine. :) I actually believe the effectiveness of distance attunements depend on many things, including the effort put in by both teacher and student. It's definitely something I hope to explore fully, but I do think that my more skeptical friends could help open my eyes a bit and offer questions that perhaps I couldn't think of. I'm just glad for your willingness to understand, and to offer your insight and support on my teaching path. Thank you so much! I'll look forward to learning more about you - and your awesome wellness center!

Reiki Master
Hi there Thought i would drop you a post, i am a Reiki master living in the uk i have had my full masters for about 6 years now and work with students in this world and the others and offer attunments in the phisical and in distance form and would be happy to offer any help you may need.

I started off as a TERA-MAI master then whent on to develop my own system i have also studdyed Usui style and have my level 3 in this also.

I blended alot of diffrent styles to form my own path and way of working and im in the process of developing my own manuels as i find the standared ones leave alot to be desired and miss alot of points.
Please feel free to add me to friends list if you feel i can help, and i will do the same :)

Bright blessing to everyone

Thank you for joining my Reiki Master filter. I'll look forward to hearing your perspectives. I do ask that you friend me back, please. I'll enjoy getting to know you better.

Reiki interest

Ahavah,

I saw your post and thought I’d toss in my name since I’ve been a Reiki master for a little over a year. I’ve been practicing on and off, meaning I have some clients and do a lot of distance healing but haven’t really dedicated myself to Reiki the way I know I will eventually. It will happen when I’m ready, but right now I’m filling other voids in my life and healing is just one of them. I’m not exactly sure of the modality, method or style I plan on using once I center in on a subject. As I’ve opened up to Reiki, things in my life have been changing.

There are a lot of items in my which make me take different directions. I’ve been working with people with cancer and children. Recently, I’ve been studying about Indigo children. I’ve also been working on meditation, intuition and other abilities.

While doing all these things I still haven’t found the one thing right for me. Focusing on what’s right for me will wait for a while as I’m moving and finally sold the old house. I’ve been smudging, tearing out the walls, rebuilding the new rooms, trying to do family things and of course I have a real job! So my Reiki work is on hold for a while. I’m doing about two sessions a week but want to do more as thing settle down in my life.

I hope your groups have many successes. I’ve added you to my friends list.

Cheers,
Frank

Re: Reiki interest
Frank, thank you for sharing this journey with me! Though you say you haven't dedicated yourself to it, it sounds like you stay pretty active regarding your Reiki work. But I understand what you mean. I'll be happy to add you back. I've been told that I am an Indigo child, although I'll admit that I tried to read the book and just couldn't get into it. I think it just wasn't where I was at that moment. Interesting stuff, though. I'll look forward to hearing your perspectives. Thanks again for joining my Reiki Master filter!

My Reiki Master is Amber aka berryhappy I have my level II reiki and am looking forward to more attunements in the future. I am currently working out some old junk first. I don't feel quite ready for Master level yet.

Add me to your Reiki filter please :)

Oh, how cool! Well I don't actually have a Reiki filter. Reiki is such a big part of my life that I post most of that as public, anyway. I do have a filter for Reiki Masters, but that's really not trying to be elitist! I haven't posted anything to it yet, but I'm working on it. That filter is for my teaching preparations - like creating Reiki class plans and things of that nature. But when you feel ready for the Master level (and yay for realizing your own pace!), let me know and I'll add you on to the Master filter.

Man, I should really get posting on that soon....(eep!)

Hello Ahavah... I came across your journal through living_reiki and the lovely witchwillow1 . I would love to join your RM filter :). I recently began the Master course (Usui Shiki Ryoho), but also have experience in Usui Reiki Ryoho (Shoden/Okuden levels). I have no experience with Medicine Reiki, but am nevertheless intrigued. My Master course spans over a nine month period, and I am still in the process of completion...

I added you to my f-list, and I understand you're "cleaning house," so you may not care to add me back because I am currently not updating my personal journal. I continue reading & commenting, and may begin updating soon again, I simply needed a 'break.'

Lovely to meet you.
-Lilith

Jun. 16th, 2006 07:55 pm (UTC)
Hi, Lilith! Thanks for stopping by my journal. I'll be happy to add you back, as I do a lot of f-locked posts and I'd like to make them available. I always love meeting new friends! I just had to clean out some of the folks with whom I've felt a relationship hasn't been established. And I'll tell you, dropping several communities I'm no longer interested in should be a big help on my time. :)

I've not been posting to this filter yet, though I've been musing on topics. I'm also a doula, and I must complete my certification by September, so I've made that a priority for now - before I run out of time! So my focus has been more on that rather than teaching, lately. I hope to finish swiftly and resume working on my reiki goals. I hope I can still keep your interest. ;) I'll look forward to getting to know you better! I knew I recognized your sn from somewhere...that lanternlady is pretty awesome, and any friend of hers is a friend of mine.

Hi! I actually found your journal because a friend of mine is doing LJ Idol and I went to check out some of the journals of other people who were doing it, and then I started clicking all your Reiki links, and then I noticed that like half our interests lists overlap :D

My name is Oliver and I'm a Reiki Master, currently in massage therapy school in Indianapolis. I'm 23, I'm a choir geek, I have purple hair, and I'm lots of fun. Would you like to be friends?
