A Milestone Reached :))

Hi Fellow Bloggers and Friends in these wonderful Virtual WP Communities:

You’re now Reading the Musings of Your newly-Minted “Shihen Gendai (Level IV, Sage/Teacher) Certified Reiki Master;” a culmination of nearly three (3) years Training and ReikiShare Practicing, under the Wonderful Mentorship of Mark Flamand (he’s got lots of Titles, but is not big on them 😉 in this Respect, I’ll follow in his Footsteps, and not even place my (well-earned, mind you) “Reiki Master” Title in my own mini-Business Cards. 

While discussing it with someone the title “Sage” was suggested, to which I replied: “Wouldn’t that be a little too ‘Self-Aggrandizing‘?” Their reply: “Not in Your Case, it isn’t!…”

Mulling over it, several days, I finally came to Agree with him. You see, at first, it wasn’t my Intention on obtaining Level IV (Master), unless you plan on Teaching it. At the time I wasn’t planning to.

Two years went by, I progressed through Levels I, II, and III and by Level II, I found myself Frequently explaining Reiki to others–consequently, re-thinking my Choices, I Figured, having already been Teaching many Others the Basics of Reiki, anyway, at that point-and Only at that point, did I make the decision to take the “Master” Level.

One of the biggest reasons I didn’t feel the need for this Title was the fact, I’d been Noticing Masters came in many Levels of Aware-Wakefulness; Of Skills; Of…(I can’t quite Put my Finger…)… on the Ineffable Quality–in conducting their Lives– I believed a Master ought to adhere to…!

I don’t mean to be Judgemental, but in our (Reiki) Community I met way too many “Masters” Who neither Walk their Talk, (or Title), nor have any wish for Engaging in Teaching, yet their Business Card has “Master” in Bold Letters while their Name below is Plain Type. Shouldn’t it be the other way around?

Thus, with such a Gratuitous, enormous Proliferation of this Term, I decided not to use it!! I can choose the Term “Sage,” w/o feeling I’m Self-Agrandizing my ego. After all, this same Person had already been telling me I was a “Sage,” a “Teacher,” and “…when will you accept ‘donning’ that hat?” was his frequent question.

I wasn’t Ready then, but Am now. Tomorrow night my “Esoteric” teaching debut takes place, when I’ll hold a Class on Runes 101, I’m a little Nervous, Aprehensive…, to be teaching a Roomfull of Sensitives–Psychics, Mediums, Claivoyants, other Runes-Casters, etc, something that–though Scary-Good at it, I’m Self-Taught!

Lets Hope that in my Debut as a Sage I don’t fall flat in my face

Namastè Everyone ma89🌸

One thought on “A Milestone Reached :))

  1. Just an Update on this Post: Class went relatively well; it was wuite well-attended, with around 30 or so attendees. My one Big mistake was to after Introducing the Subject, my way, (someone else had began the class, taling it in an unexpected, overly-complex, non-experiential road. When Opportunity arose, I was half an hour short, and the Mistake was my doing a Show-and-tell type of Demonstration w/ each Individual Attendee, giving them on the average a 5-Minute truly Runes Reading. And, Boy, I was on Fire, or as Musicians say: “in the zone.” Problem was that while reading them one-by-one would’ve been good with a much smaller Class–as I went from Person to Person, multiple Conversations Broke out, making it nearly impossible for me to remain “on the zone…,” they were getting Bored, and I felt Insecurity creeping in. My Readings became less accurate, in the end though I Read all but one person, I was completely “Spent!”

    One of the Attendees is a Friend, and Fellow Empath. She later told me she felt when them energy in the room began to change, she also “felt” my faltering Self-Assurance! We agreed that next time, I should get 1 or 2 “Volunteers,” and do the Demos that Way. That was a Good Idea! I’ve yet to have a Chance for a Repeat or Other Class.

    Lesson Learned :))
