Quotes

“And if we dare to look into those eyes, then we shall feel their suffering in our hearts. More and more people have seen that appeal and felt it in their hearts. All around the world there is an awakening of understanding and compassion, and understanding that reaches out to help the suffering animals in their vanishing homelands. That embraces hungry, sick, and desperate human beings, people who are starving while the fortunate among us have so much more than we need. And if, one by one, we help them, the hurting animals, the desperate humans, then together we shall alleviate so much of the hunger, fear, and pain in the world. Together we can bring change to the world, gradually replacing fear and hatred with compassion and love. Love for all living beings.” ― Jane Goodall

How do I love Reiki? Let me count the ways…

In thinking about how to announce my Reiki Level 1 Teleclasses I knew that writing sales-y copy is something I don’t enjoy.

Instead, I decided it would be way more fun to share several stories about Reiki from my perspective and that of some of my students. That way everyone has the opportunity to learn something about Reiki without the hype. And if you’re already a Reiki practitioner, perhaps the stories will inspire and offer new insights.

And since I’m the one teaching the six-week Reiki Level 1 teleclass I thought sharing a little bit about my own Reiki story would help everyone get to know me a little better as well.

I’ve been a Reiki practitioner for over 18 years, and if I had known about how many different ways Reiki would benefit me, my animals, friends, family, clients, rescue, wild and zoo animals I would definitely have taken a class a whole lot sooner!

I signed up for my first Reiki class simply because I felt a tug to do so. I arrived at class with an open mind, but no real understanding of why I was there or what I would do with the training.

After receiving my Reiki attunement something inside of me woke up to the possibilities. I realized not only that energy healing was real but that I would be able to help animals—pure delight for someone who loved animals as much as I do. I couldn’t wait to try out my new skills!

Surprisingly, my first client was not an animal. I was so excited about what I had learned that I had to tell someone, and chose my neighbor. She invited me in without getting up; she had her leg propped up on the coffee table, and was draped in a heating pad. I immediately saw that she was in a lot of pain—she told me she had strained her hip and knee.

With a feeling of nervousness since it was the first time I would share that I knew this woo-woo stuff, I told her that I had just finished a class in Reiki energy healing and would she be interested in my seeing if what I had learned could help? She was, and 15 minutes later—to both our amazement—she was up and moving around without pain!

I was already excited about Reiki, but after that validation I had to restrain myself from buttonholing people in the street. Everyone could benefit!

My passion for Reiki was contagious—everyone at work wanted some. I became the healer-on-tap (I had not yet set up my full-time practice). Whenever someone felt unwell—injury, headache, stomachache, cold, flu, emotional trauma—they’d come find me, and I would happily become the conduit for the Reiki energy and the highest healing good of the recipient. As a result I ended up doing a lot of Reiki in out-of the-way places, and became well-versed in how to offer Reiki under any circumstance.

But Reiki is not just for healing others—it offered me benefits too, since the practice of Reiki includes self-healing. Not only did I discover that I had a first-aid kit literally at my fingertips for healing the pain of scrapes, bumps, burns and major owwies—but Reiki also helps me let go of negative emotions and patterns in my life. In addition Reiki helps me stay healthy and, on the rare occasions when I get sick, it assists me in accelerating my recovery process. Daily Reiki helps keep the doctor away!

I asked myself, with all that Reiki offers why doesn’t everyone know about it? The benefits of Reiki should be shouted from the rooftops! I don’t have access to rooftops, but in my classes, articles and on my website I continue to share the beauty, the wonder, and the benefits of Reiki. As the years pass my love of Reiki has not diminished—it has grown stronger.

And now—after years of people asking—I am sharing my love of Reiki beyond my local area by teaching Reiki teleclasses available worldwide via phone and internet.

I am fully committed to offering training that is just as comprehensive (if not more so due to the opportunity for weekly personal mentoring and class recordings to refer back to afterward) as the in-person classes I have conducted for so many years. (And in case you were wondering, I do offer a Reiki Level 2 teleclass.)

For the series of live classes each student is responsible for completing weekly assignments. At the end of six weeks, when we have both fulfilled our part of the agreement, the student will have received basic training and practice in self-healing as well as in offering Reiki for another person or animal, and will receive a Reiki Level 1 certificate of completion.

I hope you are now as excited about the possibility of learning Reiki (or perhaps studying it through the perceptions of a different teacher if you have already taken Reiki Level 1 as I am about sharing the benefits of Reiki with you. Hope to “see” you in class!

Best wishes,
Rose De Dan

    Great article – I agree, Reiki is a game changer in many positive ways for healing. For anyone considering taking Reiki with Rose via her teleclass…I highly recommend it! I’ve completed her level 1 and 2 teleclass courses and they were incredible, offering me amazing tools to support my personal healing as well as healing of others. I took Reiki 1 in person over 2-days with someone a few years before re-taking it with Rose, and hadn’t really committed to it and didn’t keep up with it. Rose’s teleclass marked a turning point for me – the difference for me was that the teleclass over several weeks offered a forum where students share experiences and where Rose offers direct mentorship which was invaluable to solidifying experience and my comfort level with Reiki. Additionally, she also teaches students about Reiki for animals which is unique and wonderful. Thanks Rose De Dan for providing such incredible classes!
