  1. Great question!

    When we first start doing anything there is a great deal of excitement and novelty of experience. We are perhaps more aware at the beginning, in no way does this mean that the energy lessens, we are just more familiar with it.

    When we first stub our toe it hurts immensely, yet after a few minutes the pain recedes unless something brings it back to our consciousness.

  2. We get used to things…smells for example, any new odour is in our consciousness for about 20 minutes until the receptors become used to the aroma and we are no longer conscious of or smell it.

    A ‘block’ may remain unconscious of it, Reiki provides the opportunity to address these blocks on an energetic level – in yoga they are called samskaras (imprints) and karma (past action).

  3. Reiki is power – free flowing & unengaged in force… it is always there as it simply ‘is’.

    Great suggestions by ssalmon1…self treatments are great as are trades and shares or anything that inspires – for within inspiration is potential which manifests in an expression of energy.

  4. No, I don’t but I knew I was blocked because I didn’t feel it as strong,
    I stayed in touch with a lot of the people I did the attunements with and they seemed to not have the same problems. I asked around and googled Reiki shares in my area and I heard about a few.
    After that first one, I had so much energy, I almost didn’t sleep that night. I am fortunate that they meet every month, so I keep going and I feel stronger every time. Good luck, Namaste

    Wow! Thank you for your words of wisdom. This is the best answer I have gotten so far. I have been doing a lot of work on unblocking some of my early childhood traumas and a lot of “stuff” has been coming out. It could be that I am blocked. Do you remember what your blockage was at the time? I guess my next stop is a Reiki shar. Thanks again for your insight. Namaste.

  6. Have you tried going to a Reiki circle? I had a similar experience and I went to a Reiki circle and I felt that a block I had was lifted. I also try to do self Reiki to myself and I try to do it whenever I can. It is flowing much stronger now.

  7. Hello,
    I was attuned to the second level Reiki last year and I felt very powerful for many months. Now I notice that I don’t seem to have the same flow of energy that I once had. It’s kind of like my Reiki healing has fizzled out like an old battery. I am not tired and I have no stress in my life. What could be causing this downturn?? I would welcome your opinion. Thanks.

  8. Help heal the planet, google ‘orgonite’. It’s a simple compound anyone can create in their backyard with fairly inexpensive, widely-available materials which balances ambient energy by turning the negative energy into positive energy, with many easily-confirmed effects. Orgonite does this continuously, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, without electricity.

  9. maybe this is why when i do my art my entire body feels warm from the inside out, almost like wave that pass though me like an ocean of energy

  10. Thanks for the information. I’ve been wanting to go for a course and this video is helpful. It’s also good to know that you came from a dance background as I am a dancers as well. This type of minor syncronicities always seems like the information is coming through the right source for me 🙂 Cheers.

  11. thank you for this! You have an amazing voice, you should do a guided meditation video or track- or read an audiobook for us lolol. Very relaxing!

    Also, excellent information as well. Very well done! I just started Reiki 1 and had my attunement! Truely wonderful!

    Blessed energy upon you


  12. This is an excellent, very helpful video! Thank you so much for clarifying Reiki in a respectful manner that doesn’t presuppose superiority over the viewer. 🙂
