You will hear along the way that you cannot do this or that with Reiki. For instance, I have heard that you have to wait for months and months before taking the Second Degree. I have heard that you can only go on to the next degree when your Reiki Master gives you permission. Mikao Usui himself seemed to have few rules of this kind. I have no rules of this kind. Who are we as teachers to create this control over another? Ask each individual to listen to the guidance of their own soul. We are teaching, in Reiki, to listen to spirit first before our analytical mind, so isn’t it more than a little ironic that we turn around and tell them that they can only move on in their training when it seems right to the teacher? On the other hand, there are more than a few teachers who give all three levels to people all in the same weekend. That seems a little overwhelming to me, but if it feels right to you, then so be it.
