Why 90% of Reiki Students Get Average Results!

February 23, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 172

Anyone can get great results with Reiki.

It's not difficult.

You just have to do two simple things:

1. Practise daily - even if only for a short time. 2. Make sure your practice is structured.

Forgive me if I've talked about some of the issues in this article before, but having chatted with quite a few people this week I realize that some things need elaborating.

So let's examine why 90% of Reiki students around the world fail to get anything close to their full potential and how you can be sure to extract the maximum from the time and effort you put into your practice.

Daily Practice

Have you ever gone to meditate or practise Reiki and found that everything inside you resists settling down?

You know that feeling you get when you sit down on your mat or chair or whatever and suddenly have a volcanic urge to clean the windows, empty the trashcan, check the Internet, change your bed sheets, write your essay, drink some water, go for a stroll - do anything but sit still!

Well, resistance happens to practically everyone at first. But it's a little like swimming out past the breakers. Until you're past them it can be pretty rough; but once you're through, everything generally calms down.

So the key is just to push on when everything inside you is screaming out to stop, to do something else - anything! - but go on.

Because if you make it past those whitecaps then distant lands beckon.

Beautiful.

Lustrous.

Alluring.

Soul-expansive lands.

And once you reach those lands you'll be ready to access the huge quantity of power that rises up from the vastness of your being.

What's more, by practising consistently for some time you'll also build up momentum.

As a result, you won't need to start cold every day. Your body will be conditioned to slip straight into meditation, to tap directly into the deep wells of chi that lie within you.

And that is why daily practice is so critical, because without it your engine is cold and you're going to need to spend good time warming it up, time that you could otherwise have spent accelerating from where you last left off.

Inconsistent practice is like moving from 0km per hour to 20km per hour every time you practise, rather than going from 0km per hour to 20km per hour, and from 20km per hour to 40km per hour and so on.

Consistent practice means you go faster and faster.

Inconsistent practice means you keep going over the same territory. It means 0 to 20 - every single time!

Preloading

There is one final reason why consistent, daily practice gets such great results: 'preloading'.

Preloading means preparing yourself properly for the day ahead of time.

It means getting yourself in the right state of body and mind to be ready to confront with equanimity whatever challenges the day throws up - 'loading' an effective 'response program' into your being.

If, for example, you have meditated, given yourself Reiki and said the precepts in the morning (I recommend my revised, 'positive' version), then you're going to have a good chance of meeting challenges in a way that maintains your energy levels.

If you haven't given your day the right foundation, however, then when these challenges occur you often lose your balance and, as a consequence, start haemorrhaging energy.

The Need for Structured Practice

This point is!!MEGA!!

It's the chief reason why so many people reading this article only get mediocre results.

It's the reason why people who get good results don't get amazing results.

Think of it like this:

Imagine you have 10,000 bricks to do whatever you want with.

If you lay 100 here and 100 there and keep putting those bricks down here, there and everywhere, by the time you have used up your 10,000, you're not going to have much to show for it.

But let's suppose you use those bricks in a structured manner.

Let's suppose you used them to build a single storey house.

Get the difference?

Using the materials you have in a coherent, structured manner means a house that can withstand the storms.

Using what you have haphazardly means getting soaked each time it rains.

So don't dabble in this and that.

Stick to a few things and go deep.

Then stay with them longer and go even deeper.

If you do, you'll really begin to feel yourself improving. You'll really begin to experience the benefits of your practice in daily life.

If you don't, however, you'll probably only get about 10 to20% of the benefits you could.

What You Should be Practising

There is a long answer to this and a short answer.

I'm going to give you the short answer.

I'm going to give you a couple of things to practise that will make a difference - so long as you keep working away at them.

Level 1 Practice

1. Breathing into the hara meditation. 2. Reiki precepts.

See, I'm keeping it simple. Just do these two things every day and your practice will take off. Then, whenever you get the chance (even if it is while watching TV!), give yourself some hands-on Reiki, trying to consistently rotate and cover the main energy centres of your body (in particular your chakras).

And working on other people, you ask?

That is secondary.

Work on yourself first, others later.

But once you have done your own daily practice, by all means, work on as many people as you can.

That will be good for them and - good for you.

Level 2 Practice

1. Breathing into the hara meditation (yes, it's still important!) 2. First mantra (chanted), focusing on the hara.

And that's it. That's the foundation of your practice.

If you have more time, give yourself hands-on Reiki, use the symbols and work on others.

All of those things have great value - but they are secondary.

Practise the two things above and you'll notice a great improvement in the way you feel, connect and use energy.

Level 3

Contact your teacher!

Final Point

If you want more information on what you should be practising and have studied with me then just go to the Om Reiki Video Portal.

I have videos there on what - specifically - you should be working on post course.

And I go into detail.

So make sure you're getting the most out of your practice:

Be consistent, and be structured.

That way you're Reiki is going to improve in a way that will genuinely surprise you.

Good luck!
