A properly trained and empowered Reiki Master is capable of giving proper attunement to his pupil, resulting into continuing lifetime benefits in terms of health & happiness. Once attuned, a person remains with the capability of channelising Reiki for his whole life. As such it is very important to choose the right Reiki Master.

Media, publicity etc. have helped bringing merit of Reiki to general public, but they have also been misused by "Quacks" for their personal gains. I hope this will make readers more aware and help them in choosing the right Reiki Master and this in turn will help them in spreading traditional and pure form of Reiki in our society.

A surgeon after many years of studies and practical training can perform an operation with reasonable expectation of cure. If a nurse watching him perform the surgery also attempts to do so, then certain post-surgical complications are inevitable. One has to go through the defined syllabus/course to become proficient in any discipline. There cannot be any shortcut to perfection.

Greed for money has always been one of the prime reasons for dilution of standards. Quacks are common in other healing disciplines, including allopathy, homoeopathy, ayurved etc. Reiki also is no exception. While Reiki is being recognised worldover due to its simplicity, there are all kinds of people entering into it posing to be properly trained. They are in big hurry to become Reiki Masters in a few days or months of training so that they start taking classes. In traditional Reiki the Mastership cannot be awarded in such a hurry for lure of money. Attunement from such Reiki Masters may have adverse effects in the course of time.

Reiki in its original form as given by Dr. Mikao Usui – The Founder Guru, is different from Karuna Reiki, Hypno Reiki, Angel Reiki, Crystal Reiki, Short Reiki, Modern Reiki, Maha Reiki, Shiva Reiki etc.In most of the short cut methods any one can become a Reiki Master in a few days/weeks

Those wanting to learn Reiki should ask some typical questions to the Reiki Master :

  • When and from whom he learnt first and second degree Reiki?
  • When and from whom he took third degree or Master degree ?
  • Did he learn first, second and third degree from the same Reiki Master - Teacher ?
  • If not, what was the reason for change ?
  • What is his Reiki lineage? How he fits into the chain of Gurus starting from Dr. Mikao Usui ?

It is also advisable to check-up on his reputation. Getting feedback from his students, if possible, should help in choosing him as your Reiki Master. Sometime when in doubt, his earlier Reiki Master may be contacted for cross checking. Remember basic course of Reiki cannot be learnt in a day.

By asking probing questions and also by speaking to the various related persons, one may develop some "feeling". In fact the right Reiki Master will attract you towards him into bondage of Reiki relationship.
