Becoming A Reiki Master
In our classes at Waterwood Healing Center:
Most of our students take the Master level so they can benefit from two more symbols and a strengthened/stronger Reiki energy and intuition. Allowing them to enjoy more effective Reiki sessions.
For those who know they want to teach everything you need to pass Reiki on, is included plus information to help you develop your own practice. Such as outlines for teaching and additional information to help you get started.
We offer a comfortable setting; our classroom is set up like a family room.
We are set back in nature, have a private building, and easy parking.
We give you a paper Manual, not a view only digital copy. Helpful for jotting notes in or highlighting and easy referencing.
We offer an interactive experience, hands on practice and discussion/lecture.
This class includes several group healing experiences facilitated by the teacher. Plus, instruction on how to do these experiences for yourself and others.
One is the Holy Fire® Healing Experience that can be given to anyone and directs the powerful Holy Fire® energies to heal.
How to give yourself the Holy Love Experiences:
Ocean of Holy Love (To purify, heal, guide and prepare you for Reiki placements)
Holy Love I (To install Divine Love)
Holy Love II (To go back in your life’s history to heal the past)
Holy Love III (To go back to the time of conception (can also include ancestral issues, birth trauma, and more), and heal anything needing healing, around these issues.)
How to do all three placements, level one, level two, and Master placement. You also receive the Master placement in class.
Receive your four Master Ignitions and How to do all four Master Ignitions for yourself and for others. These are a powerful experience that helps purify, heal, and ignites the Holy Fire® Reiki energy within your body. This is what allows you to pass reiki on to others if you choose to.
You receive and learn how to give the Empowered in the River of Life Experience. This allows you to give placements (our attunments) in person and at a distance and use Master techniques at a distance as well. Your student or client could be anywhere in the world.
Class outlines for in person and online teaching. For how to teach Reiki one, Reiki two, Reiki Master, the upgrade for teaching at a distance/online and info on giving Reiki talks.
History of Usui Reiki, Holy Fire® Reiki and the future of Reiki.
Students have the ability to ask questions in class and later after class as questions about your reiki or reiki with others may arise. You communicate directly with your Teacher (Shannon) not an answering service that doesn’t teach and/or have a Reiki Practice.
We keep our classes small, ten students or less.
We give you a printed Professional Certificate, signed by your Reiki Master not a download you print yourself at home.
We give useful examples of how to incorporate/use your Reiki techniques and abilities based on Student’s life needs. Such as how you can use Reiki with kids, pets, at your job, and examples that help with your specific needs.
We are not leaving anything out of this training, it is complete. At the conclusion of class, you could go home and teach your spouse or best friend or anyone else. We use the whole program as outlined for Holy Fire® III (plus Online/Distance) Master class.
We do offer live Zoom classes with the option of coming at another time to receive hands on practice if you’re able. Shannon weaves her heartfelt energy into these classes as well to make them as close to the in-person training experience as possible.
We have massage tables for everyone to use during class practice. No one needs to work on the floor.
We have a full kitchen available; most students bring their lunch, and we eat together or when the weather is nice, students enjoy outside. We have filtered water and hot teas available all day.
We teach how to protect your personal energy.

Recap: Most of our students who take the Reiki Master class are interested in the stronger energy and the improved intuition. This results in better decision-making skills and the opportunity to make decisions are everywhere. If you make more right decisions, life is going to improve. The Reiki energy is ignited with-in you during a Reiki Master class opposed to just having access to it like in Reiki levels one and two. The Master energy then guides you to become a healthier and better version of yourself. With the Master energy your personal healing and Reiki strength increase so your sessions are more effective. Your ability to develop all the qualities you desire increase as well.
From Shannon: I know that each of you would benefit from the higher energy that the Reiki Master class would provide to you. I’m a very sensitive person. I believe having Reiki provides protection against taking on other people's negative energy and helps protect against the fear that is rampant in the world. The strongest Reiki possible is necessary for my own well-being. I teach many ways to protect your personal energy, using Reiki. (Most of my business is with sensitive people and empaths.)
This article may help you decide if you want to become a Reiki Master.
Becoming A Reiki Master
This writing is from William Lee Rand, parts needed updating as to reflect current teaching practices and has been shortened from the original article.
Reiki is a sacred practice that requires reverence and our greatest respect if we are to experience its most wonderful value. The benefits of Reiki can be all encompassing, not only giving us the ability to heal ourselves and others, which by itself is deeply meaningful, but also bringing guidance for our lives. Its unlimited nature can create opportunities for continual growth, unfoldment and the awakening of our own boundless potential. The ever increasing joy, peace and abundance that await those who sincerely pursue the path of Reiki are not only a blessing to be enjoyed, but also contain the healing that the planet so dearly needs. Those who have been initiated into Reiki often feel this greater potential and aspire to continue to Master levels.
The desire to grow is inherent in simply being alive. As we look around ourselves and observe living things, we can clearly see that the one activity that all living things share is growth.
Everything that is alive grows. Because this is what living things do, one could even say that the purpose of life is to grow. Therefore, the desire to grow in ones Reiki potential is a natural expression of one’s core essence and of life itself. If you feel this desire in your heart, honor, and respect it. Doing so, will fulfill an innate need.
The joys of becoming a Reiki Master are many and you don't necessarily have to teach in order for the Master training to be useful. The additional healing energy, symbols, techniques, and knowledge will add value to your healing abilities. Treating yourself, giving yourself and others healing attunements/placement and treating others in person and at a distance will all be noticeably improved. The fact that you can pass Reiki on to friends and family is also a definite plus. Many take the Master training with just this in mind. However, if you ever decide to formally teach, you will be able to do so. As each person takes the Reiki Master training, and increases their personal vibration, this adds to the vibration of the whole planet!
One of the greatest joys of Reiki Mastership is teaching Reiki to others. Imagine the thrill of witnessing the members of your Reiki class receiving Reiki energy during the attunement. Then, as you guide them in its use, sharing in their joy and amazement as they experience its gentle power flowing through them for the first time. As your students use Reiki to help family, friends and clients, a wonderful sense of spiritual connection will develop between all of you. Feelings of compassion and love for everyone will be strengthened as you merge with the Reiki Consciousness and know more deeply that we come from God and that we are all one in God.
When seeking a Reiki Master to take the Master training from, it is important to ask exactly what you will be able to do after you take the Master training from them. Will you receive the complete training and be able to initiate others into all the degrees including full Reiki Master or will something be left out, requiring you to take additional sub-levels or degrees and pay additional fees? Because of the changes some have made to the system of Reiki, this is a very important question.
It is important to find a Reiki Master to study with who is competent and who you feel attuned to and will support you after you become a Reiki Master.
Becoming a Reiki Master implies that you will be able to initiate others into Reiki. Therefore, it is important to find a teacher who will spend time in class helping you understand how to teach and use the Master techniques. Also, ways you can use your Master energy to benefit your own healing and quality of life.
Also ask them how much support they are willing to give you to begin teaching your own classes. This is important. Some Reiki Masters will have little interest in helping you get started as they are afraid you will take student away from them. If you are serious about becoming a successful teaching Reiki Master, find a teacher who will openly support you in achieving your goal.
If you have a sincere desire to help others and have taken the time to prepare to teach, you should have no trouble attracting students. It is your attitude that creates the results you receive so; assume success and you will create success.
As a teaching Reiki Master it is important to treat your students with the greatest respect. Know that each has the spark of God within them. Never use subtle threats or the withholding of information to cause your students to be dependent on you. Openly encourage each student to be connected to her/his own power and freedom of choice. What you create for others comes back to you. As you truly empower others, so will you be empowered. Trust in the abundance of the Universe and you will receive abundance and you will also be blessed with peace and joy.
When teaching Reiki to others, it is important to set a good example by being an authentic representative of Reiki energy. People cannot be so easily fooled by surface spirituality now. They want and need a real teacher who comes from experience and is working on her own deep healing. This requires one to meditate on the nature of Reiki energy and surrender to it. It is a continual process of working with all aspects of ones being that are out of step with Reiki energy and allowing those aspects to be healed by Reiki energy. We must seek to develop and express the qualities of love, compassion, wisdom, justice, cooperation, humility, persistence, kindness, courage, strength, and abundance as Reiki energy is all of these and more. It may seem paradoxical, but it is true that a true Reiki Master is one who is always becoming a Reiki Master. Like life itself, it is a process of continual growth.
As you do this, you will realize sooner or later that there is more to Reiki than using it to heal yourself and others of specific problems. Reiki has a deeper purpose. In the same way that Reiki is able to guide healing energy when you are giving a treatment, Reiki can guide your life.
