This is the fifth Reiki Nomad podcast in a series of 10 podcasts exploring: What is Reiki? Today's topic is Lineage and Attunements, including a discussion of why evolution of the Reiki energy is only natural and why it is a good idea to avoid quick and easy (online) attunements for a closer relationship with a live Reiki Master Teacher. NOTE: Amy makes a verbal mistake referring to Mrs. Takata as Mrs. Takawa during this episode. She realizes the error and apologizes for any confusion. The series of 10 What is Reiki podcasts within the Reiki Nomad podcast is intended to help those who have questions about Reiki to find the answers they seek. Potential clients who want to have a better idea of what Reiki means will enjoy these talks--especially if you want to select the best Reiki practitioner for you and have no idea what to look for or ask. Potential Reiki students will probably also find this podcast useful. The episodes clarify information so those asking if it is time to become a practitioner might have a better idea of what they would be committing to and what to look for in a teacher. Current practitioners may find revisiting fundamentals of practice helpful.
