Today I'm borrowing from William Rand,
founder of The International Center for Reiki.
"Competitiveness is Not a Part of Reiki"
One thing that can get in the way of developing
a spiritual attitude about your Reiki practice is fear
This has caused more problems & created more
restrictions and negative energy in the Reiki community
than any other area of misunderstanding.
Lack is an illusion & this is especially true for Reiki!
There is a far greater need for healing on the planet
than Reiki practitioners who can provide it.
Fear of competition goes directly against
the nature of Reiki energy& because of this can
Repel people from you who would otherwise
be interested in receiving a treatment.
Reiki comes from unlimited supply & does not fear
People who do reiki together find that their Reiki
gets stronger as more people join the group.
If Reiki was competitive, then just the opposite would happen.
The nature of Reiki energy is one of cooperation.
It understands the concept that we are all one &
flows freely to anyone & everyone.
It works in harmony with all other forms of treatment.
It is clearly apparent, the wisdom of Reiki is to welcome
all & other practitionersas allies.
IF the spiritual purpose for your Reiki practice
Is to help others to heal the planet,
then you can only rejoice when you hear about another
practitioner in your area as they are helping
fulfill your purpose.
The more you can do this,
The more your practice will thrive.
Don't worry about taking clients away from other practitioners.
Each practitioner has their own value &
special way of helping others.
You will attract the clients who are right for you.
Others will attract the clients right for them.
