Reiki Training Update

Reiki Word CloudGood afternoon!

I wanted to post a brief news update to let my clients and potentials know that I will not be offering Reiki training for the next few months, due to the fact that I have a large amount of regular Reiki session bookings, and I am concerned that I will not be able to provide the detailed, one-on-one training that I am devoted to providing.  My pre-existing students will still be able to finish their courses and get certified as was planned, but I will not be taking on any new students.

Please note that I will continue to book distance Reiki sessions, both individual and group, and will also continue to provide Reiki attunement services.  I am always available to take on more clients for Reiki healing sessions.

I apologize if this is an inconvenience and you were hoping to start training with me.  I will reopen training once I feel I have the appropriate amount of time to make sure that I am available to my students as much as they need me to be.

Thank you very much for your understanding!



Animal Reiki!

Woman doing Reiki therapy for a dog, a kind of energy medicine.I’m pleased to announce that I recently completed a specialized course in Reiki for animals!

I have done lots of Reiki sessions with animals, and most of them were prior to taking this course.  Reiki is something that can be sent to everything…people, situations, plants, animals, food…anything!  I chose to take this course to increase my knowledge about Reiki for animals, and I couldn’t be happier that I made that decision.  Taking a specialized course really helped me.  Even though I had already done loads of animal sessions, I learned a few tips and things to help me perform Reiki on animals even more successfully.

Is Reiki something you’ve considered for your pet?  If so, let me know in the comments!  If you tried it, was it successful?


Charging for Reiki Healing

The following article is from the Reiki Rays website.  This is an important article that discusses why Reiki healers charge for the service they provide.

If you have ever stopped to wonder why I am charging for healing, or have thought that charging for healing is inappropriate, please read this article.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact me anytime to discuss this topic further.

This article is written by Reiki Master Taryn Walker, and it was published on Reiki Rays on March 14, 2016.  The original article can be found by clicking here.  I have not edited this article in any way – it is published here exactly how it appeared on the Reiki Rays website.

Why Should Healing Be Free?

Article by Taryn Walker

From time to time I receive a booking for one of my distant Reiki sessions and when I send the payment request I get an anger-fuelled reply saying that healing should be free because energy is free. Often this is accompanied by a big rant about money and how healers these days only care about making more of it.

Firstly, I’m always in shock at the way some people choose to speak to others on the internet. I know most of these lost souls would never dare to confront me with such disrespect in person. Some will simply send a message saying “Send Reiki now.” No introduction, no explanation, just a rude demand. Excuse me, there is a human being on the other end of that contact form!

I don’t think of my services as a healer to be more special than the services offered by a plumber. We need different things at different times and everyone who provides a service has an important place in their community. Would you ever think to ask a plumber for free plumbing? Imagine sending the plumber a message saying, “Unblock my pipes, now!” and expecting him to do it for free…

To say that healing should be free because energy is free would only make sense if healing was the only kind of energy that existed. But everything is energy, including money. When you pay for Reiki you are simply exchanging one kind of energy with another kind of energy.

On the rare occasions that I receive hate-mail for charging for my services as a healer I take the time to kindly reply and offer my view on this. That usually ends the conversation, which is a pity, as I would love to gain a deeper understanding from these people personally. I’m guessing it’s partly to do with a subconscious block against money, which thinks of money as evil or dirty. I’ve been there and I’ve done a lot of work to heal this unfortunate belief as money finds it very difficult to come to you if you think badly of it.

I understand how frustrating it is to feel like you never have enough money so I’m able to have compassion for those who contact me in rage about having to pay for Reiki. I just wish there could be a more civilised dialogue around the issue as I could probably offer the kind of advice needed to begin to heal these beliefs around money and healing.

For the healers reading this, I hope that you feel comfortable charging for your services. For karmic reasons it’s important that there is an energetic exchange, especially with healing. I wish for all healers to really value what you have to offer so as to enjoy the monetary exchange. You probably spent a lot of money on your training. It takes time and money to prepare a special healing space for your clients. It’s likely that you often give more of your time than agreed upon for your healing sessions.

So let’s heal all this nonsense about free healing.

Healers are offering a service just like anyone else in the service industry. If you want to be an accountant you study accounting. If you want to be a Reiki healer you learn Reiki. I chose Reiki as my profession because I love it and it suits my temperament. I love holding space for people to have the healing experience they’re ready for. I don’t earn nearly as much as an accountant simply because society doesn’t value Reiki as much as it does accounting. That’s just the way the world is right now, though we need accountants as much as we need healers.

I spent over 5 years training in Reiki practice before I started charging for treatments. I value what I have to offer because of the time, commitment and money I’ve put into my business. The healing work itself I would do for free if living did not require making money. It’s my passion and it comes naturally to me. I see amazing results in my clients and I know what I have to offer is valuable. I’ve chosen to value myself and my offerings despite being undervalued by a largely unspiritual society.

Of course healing can be offered as a gift in certain circumstances. Many hospitals welcome Reiki practitioners as volunteers to help those suffering with chronic or terminal illness. If you find yourself at the scene of an accident, don’t hesitate to discreetly offer Reiki to those in need. I share Reiki with my Dad as often as possible, and would never dream of asking him to pay, as he’s half of the reason I’m here in this world. From time to time I offer free group healing sessions, sometimes as a thank you to those who book sessions with me, for those who cannot afford a session or just in celebration of a solstice or a special moon.

So I’m not saying that healing should never be free. I’m calling for us all to heal our issues with money, to respect the monetary value someone places on their healing services and to speak to each other nicely on the internet, please.

I will continue to take the time to respond courteously to the few angry souls who expect my offerings for free without even bothering to introduce themselves. I will continue to value my services as a healer so as to let others know how I wish to be valued. I will consider all the unseen time, effort and money someone has put into their product or service before judging it as too expensive.

Let’s take the fact that everything is energy really seriously and play the game that this presents to us. Let’s enjoy spending money on things that are good for us. Instead of feeling like we’re losing money by paying for something, instead recognise that you’re gaining something through a simple and even sacred exchange of energy.

When you value yourself and your offerings, it gives others permission to value themselves and they will then know how to value you too.

This wasn’t meant to be a post about self love but, as usual, that’s what it all boils down to.

The Benefits of Group Reiki Healing Sessions vs. Individual Sessions

I’ve had a few questions lately about what the difference is between group and individual Reiki sessions, and why there is such a cost difference.

When you sign up for a group Reiki session, you are part of a small group (usually around 5 people) who are being sent Reiki at the same time.  The same techniques are used as during an individual session, but the group receives Reiki as a whole.  When you receive Reiki as a group, the shared energy that is generated is immensely powerful.  A group Reiki session is also significantly cheaper (starting at $7.50 for a single session), and becoming cheaper the more sessions you book!

A group session may happen at any time of the day or night, so it’s not possible to make sure you’re at home and relaxed while it’s taking place.  Reiki will reach you whenever and wherever you are when you need it, and if you don’t mind that it may make its way to you while you’re at work or at the grocery store, then a group session is perfect for you.

A group session is a great way to try it out and see if Reiki is something that is right for you.  For less than $10, you can have a taste, and see if you like it.  Some clients swear by group sessions, and it’s all they book – and that’s perfectly acceptable, and encouraged, even!  I love doing group sessions just as much as I love doing solo sessions…it doesn’t really matter to me which you feel is right for you!

That being said, having an individual session is worthwhile too, if it’s something that is affordable to you.  A group session allows me to spend the full session focusing only on you, and tailoring the treatment to your needs, which can’t always be accomplished during a group healing session.  There is much more flexibility in the treatment plan when booking an individual session.  It can be whatever you want and need it to be!  An individual session is booked for a specific time that the two of us agree on, allowing you to choose where you are.  Many people prefer to be at home and be relaxed, sitting or lying in a comfortable, relaxing environment.

New Today – Group Reiki Sessions!

Have you been wanting to try some Reiki healing, but find that the costs are too high?  If so, I’ve got just the thing for you!

Today, I’ve added group Reiki sessions to the store.  The difference between a group session and a regular session is that, in a group session, Reiki is being sent to multiple people at the same time.  You still receive the healing benefits of Reiki, but do not have the advantage of booking the treatment at whichever time you would like, so that you can relax and take it all in.

While a normal session may be booked when you know you’ll be home and can relax, a group session may occur at any time of the day or night.  You’ll still receive the healing benefits of Reiki…but it might not feel as “special”.

However, group sessions are significantly more affordable, especially if you’re not sure if Reiki is right for you, and just want to try it out.

To see what’s available, please click here to visit the bookings page.  Give it a try, and as always, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me!



Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays!  I would like to wish everyone the merriest Christmas, and the happiest New Year!

I look forward to continuing to provide Reiki healing and training 2016…I feel like it’s going to be a big year!

As a special thank you, I would like to provide you with the following holiday gift.  The coupon code below is good for everything on my site, including Reiki training…a great opportunity to grab the course you’d like to take!

The Call to Healing – What it Feels Like When Reiki Reaches Out to You

Holistic Healing CollageThe call to learn how to use Reiki is something that is different for everyone.  For some, a long-term interest often pushes them to take a course…maybe someone suggests it to them, or maybe they stumble upon a course that they’re able to participate in.  For others, they might have felt the need to be a healer of some type for their whole lives, and in the end Reiki is what spoke to them.

I have always had an interest in healing.  From the time I was young, I wanted to be a healer…at that time, I was more interested in nursing or becoming a doctor, but my life path clearly wasn’t meant to take me that way.  While this was disappointing, it was not the end of the world for me, as I knew there were other ways I could help people heal and use my gifts and compassion to help people feel as good as possible.

Reiki is something that had interested me for a long time, but I was never quite sure…what if I couldn’t do it?  Or what if it didn’t work?  What if I learned Reiki, and people felt nothing and complained, or felt that I had betrayed their trust?  All of these questions swirled around in my mind, and made me doubt myself.

Some time ago, I stumbled upon a Reiki course, and all the variables just…fit.  The price was something I could afford, parts of the course were online, so it worked with my hectic work schedule, the timing was right and I actually had the time and energy to spend on the course…it was perfect!

As soon as I started the course, I knew I was hooked, and that Reiki was something that would change my entire life.  I flew through my Reiki Level I course and absorbed as much information as I could, always reading ahead in the manual and devouring any other books I could get my hands on.  The same thing happened with Reiki Level II, and at the end of the course I was left certified and yearning for more.

This brought me to the question…was I ready to take my Master Level Reiki?  That would mean I would be a certified Reiki Master AND Teacher…the thought was mildly terrifying.  Me…a teacher?  It felt like too much power would be in my hands…what if I couldn’t do it?  What if I wasn’t worthy of the title of Shinpiden, Reiki Master?

After much hemming and hawing, I decided that yes…this was something I wanted to pursue.

And I’m so, so glad I did.

Becoming a Reiki Master has taught me so much…about healing, helping people, and most importantly – about myself.  This training has unleashed in me a passion for teaching, for sharing the gifts of Reiki, and helping people unlock the ability to share Reiki energy within themselves.

If you’re unsure of whether Reiki training is for you, please consider the contents of this article…Reiki can, and will, change your life.


Using Reiki to Heal Yourself

Reiki ShareThank you so much for taking the time to read my blog!  Comments are very welcome and would be much appreciated!

When I created this website, I added the blog, unsure of whether I would actually use it.  I figured if not, I could always get rid of it.  But then, I decided that maybe I should keep it!  Blogs are a great way to share information and to allow everyone reading my website to have a chance to get to know a little about me, my knowledge, and how I feel about a wide variety of topics.

Of course, it only makes sense that my first blog post is about using Reiki to heal yourself – even when a Reiki practitioner is involved, you are still using Reiki to heal yourself.  Reiki practitioners such as myself simply act as channels to send the Reiki energy your way, so that you are able to benefit from it as much as possible.

Now…this brings up the question…if you’re healing yourself, why do you need a Reiki practitioner in the first place, right?

In order to channel Reiki, a person must be attuned to Reiki energy by a Reiki Master/Teacher such as myself.  This attunement is required to channel Reiki energy, and without it, you will not be able to heal yourself.  Using a Reiki practitioner allows you to sit back, relax, and let someone else focus the energy on your body, so you can focus on healing and not have to worry about anything else.  Receiving Reiki treatments from a practitioner, whether this is in person or via distance, is very effective for both emotional and physical healing.

If you would like to practice Reiki on yourself without having a Reiki practitioner involved, you can absolutely do this by completing a Reiki Level I course and receiving the appropriate attunement, either in person or via distance.  I offer courses in Reiki in my shop, but I’m not writing this post as a sales pitch.  I want you to understand the many ways that Reiki can benefit you in your daily life!

I practice Reiki on myself every day, at least once.  I try for once in the morning and once in the evening, but that doesn’t always happen!  Reiki in the evening helps me feel relaxed and get to sleep, while my morning sessions with myself help me feel energized for the day ahead.  Sometimes, depending on the day and what’s going on, I’ll sneak in an afternoon session as a little pick-me-up.  It’s great!

Last weekend, I had a nasty cold – I increased my Reiki treatments and meditation for a couple of days, and felt better by Monday night.  People I work with who also came down with the cold are still struggling with it, an hour later.  The healing power of Reiki helped me shorten the duration of my cold, and, had my colleagues been open to receiving Reiki healing, it could have helped them as well!

Whenever I’m feeling depressed, stressed, angry, or frustrated, I practice Reiki on myself, to help me feel better.  While this doesn’t always work on the first try, there’s something about it that is calming and soothing, and I highly recommend practicing Reiki on yourself in difficult situations as much as possible, if you have been attuned to any level of Reiki energy.

If I’ve got a deadline coming up, an important event, or something else I feel could use a little extra help, I channel Reiki energy into that situation/time/whatever it is to help it go well, and I’ve had some pretty good success with this!

Reiki is so powerful, and can improve your life so much!  If you’re reading this, I hope that you’re on board the Reiki train, so to speak, and I would love to hear from you about any experiences you’ve had with Reiki!

Love and Light,
