There is something about being a Reiki Teacher that is not seen by many people and that is the commitment to assist students to find their path and to watch them grow, progress and advance on their spiritual journey. Being a Reiki Master/Teacher also means behind the scenes experience and devotion, helping your students and assisting with questions after the class is finished.
When I first started doing Reiki, my intention was not to teach but instead to focus on becoming a very good practitioner. A few months after taking the Reiki Master/Teacher course, one of my clients ask to be attuned to Reiki Level 1. If you are on a spiritual path and you think that Reiki is your answer, then proceed and expect that everything will be ok.
I had to read my manual and take the necessary time to ensure I could perform the attunement without mistakes. Teaching Reiki classes, I had to decide how to introduce the history, the symbols, take time for breaks and lunch, as well as time for the attunement and then the practice. After teaching a few classes, everything fell into place.
So when the time came to teach my first Reiki class, I was nervous and I wanted to make sure that everything went well and that my students had a good experience. When the day was over they told me how wonderful the day was and the time of fellowship, connecting and learning was an unforgettable time.
From that instant I knew that the universe was advising me to become a Reiki Master/Teacher and pass on this magnificent energy to others. There was no need to be nervous, as the universe always provides what is needed, at the precise time it is required. If you are not ready to teach that is ok, but I highly recommend taking the Reiki Master/Teacher class anyway, so this higher level of energy will become part of the modalities in your tool box. If one day someone says: "can you teach me" you will know that the universe has chosen you, to help others.
May you find and learn patience in your search,
