Reiki is such a weird and wonderful energy that sometimes you think you might just be imagining it.

If that is how you feel, then having someone who understands you, to talk to, can be invaluable.

It's so simple, but at the same time confusing and if you don't have someone to ask about what's happening, you begin to doubt yourself. That's where mentoring comes in.

I learned Reiki in Vermont, USA and came home not feeling any the wiser. Fortunately for me, my master had given me the phone number of someone in the UK that I could contact. She is a very dear friend and a sister master to me. Without her support and patience, I would not have got very far in my journey, and for that I am deeply grateful. Thank you Heather.

Now 25 years on, and after 22 years of teaching Reiki, I find myself answering many and varied questions for the Reiki Association on their enquiry line. By now I think I must have heard all the questions, but occasionally there are still a few that make me think.

What surprises me in the Reiki world is that some masters don't seem to offer ongoing support for their students. I do, in the form of shares, but also I tell them that I am happy for them to contact me if they need help or have questions. For me, that is just a part of being a master.

If however, you don't have support, or have lost touch with your master, then there is a solution. No matter whether you are a master, or a first level Reiki student, you can benefit from mentoring. It's an ongoing 1 to 1 relationship that you have with a mentor who can guide and support you, in both practical and energetic ways. Any problems and questions are addressed in the regular weekly meetings, and you are given simple tasks that connect you with the energy and help you integrate the work you are doing.

If this sounds like something that you might be interested in, then contact me to talk about it.
