Why is Self-Care for Reiki Practitioners Important?
Reiki Practitioners often primarily focus on the needs of their clients. This is expected, but equally important is their own well – being. My Reiki Master, Eileen Marder-Mirman, (http://eileenmardermirman.com) urged her students at all levels to be “doing their own healing”. What does this mean? It means healing yourself on as many levels as possible. The more one heals themselves, the more she can be there for her clients and students. Consider what they say on an airplane in case of emergency, put your own oxygen mask on first. Think about an onion with it many layers. If peeled back slowly and skillfully you will get deeper into yourself and the more you do so, the clearer your channel will be for healing others.
