If you’re looking for insights from a Reiki Master to support your journey of spiritual awakening you’re in the right place.
Reiki students who notice that their healing path has catalysed spiritual awakening often approach me with questions about what to expect, what they need to do and how long it will take.
Witnessing my students’ learning and growth is a hugely rewarding aspect of my mission. And because my own spiritual journey has been such an incredible adventure over the last 13 years, I’m passionate about supporting people who are ready to grow.
Here are my answers to three of the questions I get asked the most about the awakening path.
How long does spiritual awakening take?
In my experience, spiritual awakening comes in waves and it’s a lifelong process. There are always more layers to shed; there is always more awareness to embrace – this is where the knowledge, healing and art of Reiki is perfectly placed as a foundational self-help tool.
It isn’t useful to rush or to address your process superficially. As a unique soul choose what is right for you with Divine Timing rather than follow a plan that someone else has designed.
For example, you may be drawn to change your diet to align with your awakening. This is an experience that most people on a journey of awakening encounter, often soon after they’ve connected with the Reiki energy.
It’s easy to assume this means becoming vegan, juicing daily or following a macrobiotic regime. These are all beautiful options, but what are you intuitively guided to choose? It’s okay if what is right for you at this time is something different as long as it’s authentic.
Seek counsel and support when you need it, but always remember you are the expert when it comes to your life.
How do I know what I need to do?
Pay attention to what your mind, body and soul really needs in every aspect of your life. Spend time in honest self inquiry to ascertain what you must release, adjust or change to support your natural process of spiritual evolution.
Meditation and Mindfulness can help you find the clarity you yearn for. There are no rules so don’t be surprised if you find yourself changing direction, exploring avenues that you later abandon and discovering new personal truths.
The crossroads is a familiar place for spiritual seekers. Over time it is a place you’ll learn to be more comfortable with and you’ll discover hope and possibility in what lies ahead, unexplored.
Notice your resistance to change and challenge your excuses. Reiki will help you understand the vulnerabilities and rawness that surface as you shed light in dark places. Your healing practice will help you value and cherish every wild, convoluted part of your journey.
Will the path of spiritual awakening ever be complete?
Reiki is a path of elevation. But at the same time Reiki teaches us to be human, fallible and accepting of how we are in every moment.
You may find that you go through an intense period of change that calms while you process and integrate for weeks, months or even years. Then it could happen again. Make the most of every pause – it’s perfect because ultimately, if it’s your path and your will to grow, the process is as inevitable as the waves lapping on the shore.
Completion, however, is not something I believe we can even conceive of. We have the capacity for infinite expansion.
The experience of channelling Reiki helps us understand that the deeper we go within, the higher we can reach.
The key is to tune into ourselves with honesty and integrity; to discern between what comes from limitation or fear and what flows from soul.
We are timeless so we can take our time.
