Q&A: Can Reiki Masters Get Ill?
Q: Someone told me that a true Reiki master never gets ill. Your take?
A: I find this statement quite bizzare, considering how Mikao Usui died, and that Phyllis Furumoto recently had cancer – is the person saying this actually challenging her authenticity? Reiki masters are humans too; while regular Reiki practice improves general health and the speed of recovery during the occasional illness, it certainly doesn’t mean that one would never fall sick.
Disease is (IMO) a result of inner conflict, which definitely reduces through regular Reiki practice but life always brings us greater challenges. When one is battling what I call core issues ( those very fundamental to one’s identity) then there can be quite a trust with mental as well as physical illness. However, I believe Reiki ensures that you always have support and find the right people when required.
But yes, it is not the first time I’ve heard this statement; I’ve even had a client come to me and be relieved I was kind, because she (a Reiki master herself) was questioned and judged for having a tumor by the other healers she had gone too.
