I have been drawn to Reiki for a number of years, but got tripped up by there having to be a special lineage, as though Spirit and healing energy would be concerned about such things. It smacked too much of elitism. When I came across this article during yet another exploration of Reiki, I sighed. Thank you, dear friend, for being a voice of balance in this field of work. There is no room for ego when it comes to healing work or to love.
