1. How did Reiki find you?
I first heard about Reiki in 2007 when I was staying in U.S. One day I called one of my friend and she didn’t answer my call that time. Later, she called back and said she was little busy as she was healing her mother-in-law. I got confused that how come I don’t know that her family has arrived from India. She then said she was healing her mother through distant healing.
That’s it. I was so amazed and intrigued by the magical way to heal your loved ones across country through distant healing. My friend gave me vague idea about what Reiki is and how it works.
Days and years passed, I forgot about Reiki. We moved back to India (Chennai) and in Chennai I again started inquiring about Reiki. I was intrigued and fascinated but not enough to learn.
Then we shifted to another city in India (Bangalore) and my life changed. I now somehow wanted to know more about Reiki. It was like I was magnetically pulled towards Reiki after shifting to Bangalore. I searched Internet and gathered info. I got attuned to Reiki after shifting to Bangalore and since then there is no looking back. Reiki came to me in 2012 but it was knocking my door since 2007.
2. What is your favorite symbol and why?
My favorite symbol is the Master Symbol Dai Ko Myo. It is all-in-one symbol. Dai Ko Myo is the grand mixture of all the other symbols; collaborating all qualities into one. The energy change within and around me after getting attuned to Master Symbol was tremendous. There are times when I invoke only Dai Ko Myo for certain issues, especially if I am running around or really stuck. During my recent trip to Europe, invoking Dai Ko Myo has helped me catch flights, trains, find locations and more…
Actually, all the symbols have their own importance, be it Cho Ku Rei, Sei He Ki or Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen. I generally invoke all 4 symbols in everything, but if I am really stuck, using Dai Ko Myo alone has proven to be total successful too.
3. What do you think about Angels, Crystals?
None of my sessions starts without calling Angels. Angels are always around us and always there to guide and protect us, we just need to ask their help. There isn’t a single day when I don’t talk to Angels. I don’t get ‘Talking’ replies from Angels but nevertheless I share my worries, happiness and issues that are troubling me. I have made Angel Jar and Gratitude Jar through which I give away my worries to Angels and thank them too.
Crystals are my passion. I am obsessed with crystals. Crystals have amazing healing qualities and when they are merged with Reiki, the healing effect is amplified. I wear crystals, place crystals in all rooms, in my Reiki Box, Money Box, carry them in purse, use for chakra balance and healing, meditate with them, make crystal grids and more and more… ☺
4. What do you think of distant attunements? Do they work?
Yes, distant attunements absolutely work. It is equally powerful as hands-on attunements. I have been attuned to couple of Reiki systems via distant attunements and it works awesome.
5. Can you share one of your most amazing Reiki experience?
It is really difficult to pick any one experience. Though there is one very special experience. There was this old lady who had paralysis on one side of the body. I was contacted by a family member to heal her general health, he was a little doubtful about Reiki so we decided to start with just 21 days of healing and see how she is adjusting and adapting to energy. By the end of 21 days (few days before 21 days), I got mail from the family member stating that lady is able to move now and can even stand. Frankly, I did not expect this result so fast with such speedy recovery. I assumed healing will happen slowly. But this was just amazing. Now that lady is walking slowly with the help of a cane.
6. How do you see Reiki 50 years from now?
I see more awareness towards Reiki and spiritual healing. More and more people are opting and moving towards Reiki. I have seen faith and trust amongst teenagers towards Reiki healing and these teenagers and next generations will bring more awareness worldwide.
7. If you could give just one piece of advice to a new practitioner, what would it be?
Don’t give up. I have seen so many people who has given-up. The most common reason is, they did not get any result, and hence they felt that Reiki is not working. My one advice to new practitioners is to have complete faith and trust on Reiki. Reiki works for your highest good. At times, it may not give you desired outcome because it wasn’t meant to be or that was not for your highest good. Have faith and practice Reiki.
