A common misconception is that Hawayo Takata emphasized the physical healing aspects of Reiki practice over the spiritual, but Reiki researcher Robert Fueston reveals what Takata really taught.

But if we truly love our work, and especially if we want to do more of it, why wouldn’t we be grateful to be compensated for it?
