Reiki Teachers & Students learn from each other & Reiki Guidance

We all learn that Reiki will guide us on our path as long as we are open to the guidance that we receive from the Reiki energy.  Being a Reiki Teacher, I always learn as much from my students as they learn from me, although Reiki itself is the Teacher for us all.  In being attuned to Reiki, we are only the vessel that the energy and information flows  through, as well as a channel for the healing energy to move through.

Once I’ve attuned students, it is my goal is to have them reach a place of confidence and trust on the Reiki. Students leave Reiki classes empowered and dedicated to using Reiki in their lives daily. Reiki can also be integrated into other practices they may already be using in their lives such as yoga, massage or meditation.

I assist my student’s confidence in using Reiki in the following ways:

  • Plenty of practice time.  By giving and receiving Reiki during the class, this will allow the student to develop a relationship with the healing energy and how it feels when it flows through them.

  • I ask the students to give feedback to one another by sharing their experiences while giving & receiving Reiki.   This will help the new Reiki practitioners trust in the unseen effects of the Reiki.

  • I encourage all students to trust their intuition, as Reiki will always guide them. It’s always so exciting to watch people trust their guidance. and to be open to how Reiki can be used to promote healing and energetic well being in their lives.

  • Reiki is with You for your life time. Your connection with Reiki can never be broken. Keep trusting and following your guidance.

​Each my Central Alberta & Red Deer Alberta Reiki Classes I teach offer the exact same information, but depending on the students, wording and teachings may vary, as each group has their own individual energy to offer.


So many of my students ask why is the energy so different in class than when I get home?
There are a number of reasons – first when you are in group reiki energy, it is flowing within each person in the class.  The larger number of people, the higher the energy flows.

So, once you get home yes, it will be different than being in the class.

1.  Practise. Practise. Practise. Integrate the 5 Reiki Principles into your daily life.

2. Make it a habit – I require all my students to do their own 21 Day Self-Clearing Reiki – 7 days per chakra and it takes 21 days to make a new habit.

3. Don’t beat yourself up if you fall into old patterns – it’s easy to do and is our comfort zone.  Just be aware, acknowledge, reset your intentions and move forward. You don’t have to stay there.

4.  Review your Reiki Manuals and class materials.  There are many hidden gems that lay within your Reiki Manual.

5. Find those who support your change.  Join a reiki share/circle, connect with your teacher (me), connect with other students in your class.


I heard the attunement process needs to be held in person.

Traditionally, yes, that is correct and is preferable!  In my online classes, you have the option to book in for a personal attunement if you're in the area. However, we must understand life force energy is not bound by space & time. You will receive the energy you need to activate Reiki & be a clear channel for it to flow through. I will be performing a distance Attunement for the group while guiding you through a mediation in class 1 and class 3 videos. Many people feel distance attunements are equally successful in opening up your energy channels and allowing you to become a clear vessel for Life Force Energy. Either way, you also have the opportunity to schedule a free & private distance attunement session with me at the completion of the course.

Can one even properly learn Reiki online?

Yes, you can! All my Virtual Reiki Classes are LIVE TEACHINGS, just like a regular class setting.

Why am I taking my classes online?

Whether we are aware of it or not, each of us is in our current life situation for the long haul.

And as we rise to the challenge, we are called upon to share our gifts, express our love and follow our inner guidance.



Because of the coronavirus the requirement for social distancing and quarantine has made it very difficult to teach Reiki classes in the usual way.

Because of this, it is possible for everyone to remain safe and at the same time continue to teach and attend Reiki classes.  

This new system allows us to make a smooth transition during these changing times and allow us to continue teaching Reiki classes.


This new system is designed to be taught live by the teacher who will be in touch with each of his or her students during class, able to interact with them and answer questions.


The students also will be able to interact with each other, to share Reiki and exchange ideas.
