“How can I get people to open up to Reiki?”
Reiki practitioners frequently ask me this question. It is a curious question to me, because I find people to be very open and interested in Reiki practice.
And also because, honestly, I don’t see it as my job to open people up to Reiki practice.
Why talk about Reiki practice?
My job is to reach the people who are already open to Reiki (even if they don’t yet know it), and to give them the information they need, information that brings them a step closer to connecting with a Reiki practitioner (maybe you!).
And perhaps most important, to give them that information in language that is comfortable for them.
Because if the language I use to communicate Reiki isn’t comfortable for people, the information I’m really giving them is that Reiki is not something they want to know more about.
When Reiki practitioners complain that the people around them are closed to Reiki, I wonder if they are really closed to Reiki, or if they just can’t get past the language that’s being thrown at them.
If you have trouble interesting people in Reiki practice, think about what you are saying that might be throwing up a roadblock. If you can’t find where your words are getting in the way of communicating Reiki practice, run your usual spiel by a friend who isn’t enthusiastic about Reiki, and ask for honest feedback.
And use it.
