There’s so much I could share with my students in a Reiki course. I could talk for hours about Reiki theory and spend days demonstrating different practice styles and techniques.
While passing on what I’ve learnt is a special part of the Reiki journey for me and my students, the greatest teacher is always Reiki itself.
Every time I remember this, I feel a beautiful shift in the teaching experience. It’s that feeling of “Everything is taken care of here”. I’m able to relax more and let things unfold as they want to.
This is the way of Reiki. We do as little as possible and simply allow it to happen.
When students feel nervous about how to practice, teach them to acknowledge Reiki as their guide. Encourage them to trust in the connection to Reiki and let it flow naturally from there.
Reassure them that we all come to know Reiki personally and Reiki works through each of us uniquely.
There’s no such thing as wrong practice, only deeper levels of connecting with universal wisdom. The more we trust Reiki, the more guidance we’re able to receive.
No matter where you are on your Reiki journey…
Let Reiki teach you.

Taryn Walker is a traveling Reiki Master Teacher who wishes to inspire people to realise that they are miraculous! She believes that Reiki can reveal our natural ability to heal ourselves and this empowers us to take responsibility for our lives. She works a lot with distant Reiki and loves the way it allows people to experience the illusion of separation. Taryn is grateful for being able to connect with her Reiki clients even while traveling. She usually lives on a little island in Thailand, where she practices and teaches Reiki, but finds ‘home’ wherever she is. Taryn enjoys yoga, nature, creating art, cooking and finding magic in “ordinary” places. Follow her here: reiki-alchemy.com, and alchemyhealing.
