Hi. I am a Reiki Master and have been trying to build my business for quite some time now. I have discovered that some important information has been left out of the "build it and they will come" teaching. It is definately true that the spirit will send clients to a Reiki practitioner, however here is what they did not teach you: In order to create a business you must be absolutely pure in your intentions. Why are you building a Reiki practice? Is it for money? Fame? Admiration? Whether you believe it or not these are usually at the root of the desire for a business. Before spirit will send anyone to you, you must be free of the desire for money. Reiki as an income? Don't depend upon it. Once you begin depending upon Reiki for the rent, groceries, etc. it will all fall apart. Your heart will be in the wrong place. You must do Reiki because you love helping people to help themselves heal. DO NOT RELY UPON REIKI FOR YOUR LIVELYHOOD. I have seen far too many well intentioned Reiki practitioners and Masters fall apart because they were promised this could be their income. Do it because you love Reiki.
