juan wauters // north american poetry / water

and the water will come down
and wash you down
and let you see what you would be
if you’d have known what’s right or wrong
or what is fun
woke up early, feel that itch
what i’mma do know with this nitch?
do i belong? who is it that i am?
what is it that i’m for?
who’s that in my skin?
has he done much for me?
what is it that he says?
does he talk about me?
and the water will come down
and wash you down
and let you see what you would be
if you’d have known what’s right or wrong
or what is fun
woke up early, feel that itch
what i’mma do know with this nitch?
do i belong? who is it that i am?
what is it that i’m for?
who’s that in my skin?
has he done much for me?
what is it that he says?
does he talk about me?
when i learn not to think of thinking
and think
doing is doing, doing is nothing
nothing is doing, while you don’t do
when i learn not to think of thinking
and think

So you wanna learn reiki?

I started writing this as a long series of asks to someone who was curious… and decided that I would make a big post about it.

Reiki. I love it. It has literally changed my life and the way I approach things. It has been for the better. I was lucky, blessed, or ready when the universe gave me the tools… however you want to look at it. One of my former students from school and I worked together, and she’s a reiki master/teacher. It all just kind of fell into place.

But finding someone to teach you can be hard. Finding the right person can be harder. So here’s some advice when searching.

First off, find the right person. Spend time doing research. It shouldn’t be too hard to find a person who will attune you… but that doesn’t mean they should be the one to do so. Talk to the person who might be your teacher. Make sure you feel comfortable with them. Make a bond. I say this because when you are attuned, you become connected to that person spiritually for life. There’s nothing wrong with not talking with the person again… but they’re your teacher. You should be able to come back and talk to them when needed. They’re there to guide you. If you’re going to get attuned by someone who will not spend the time on you, then find someone who will. This isn’t just about spending the money, because you’re not doing reiki for the money… this is about finding someone good for your spirit.

You also need to figure out which path of reiki you want to take. There are several different branches. I’m attuned Usui Reiki, which means my teachers can trace their lineage back to Usui the creator of reiki. There are other branches that have woven in more western techniques, add more symbols, use different methods of hand locations, etc. There is no right or wrong path of reiki… only what works best for you. Spend some time learning about what jives with you and find the teacher in that tradition. Know that there are some that are attuned to multiple paths, and that’s ok too.

There are some traditions or places that will only move at a certain speed. There are some that move faster. For instance, my teacher would not attune me to Reiki 2 until I has spent at least a month at Reiki 1… and even then when she looked into my third eye, she didn’t see the right symbols. She made me wait until the next time I saw her, which was two months later. And she was right. It was better for me to wait. Research how much time you’ll need to spend at each level, decide if you are ok with waiting that long, look into costs, and figure out what will work best with you.

At the end of the day, you are doing something that will change you on a spiritual and vibrational level. It’s possible to ignore reiki. There are many who are attuned and do nothing with it. But once you are attuned to reiki, you will always be. It’s a wonderful journey, but also one that will change you in many ways. A big note, whatever gifts you have will become amplified. Trust me, I didn’t think I had any… and have had some amazing growth in areas I didn’t even know I had any skill in. Like I said, it will change you.

Here are some good books that I enjoy to get you started and learning about the possibilities that reiki can do for you. I like these books because they don’t reveal symbols or names, which some paths (like mine) consider sacred and shouldn’t be shared until a person is attuned and ready.
