After a few conversations with some of my students I had recently, it became clear to me that they and possibly others, are laboring under a very big misconception.

One of them involved the use of a pendulum, and the other was around doing Reiki sessions on the public and charging for it.

I preface what I am about to say by making it clear that I am stating a fact, and this is not coming from ego.
FACT: ANYTHING you do in life is only perfected by practice - ANYTHING!  From playing a musical instrument, to driving a car, to cooking, or using a pendulum (ad infinitum).

So to assume that after a few months or even a year of training, barely having done any Reiki on others or yourself, and sporadically attending a few Reiki shares, you could be as powerful a Reiki (channel) Practitioner as your teacher, says to me that you really don't have a clue about all that is involved in getting to where your teacher is at.  And that I need to make this a lot clearer in my Reiki classes from now on.

In my lineage, we teach that you don't have our blessing to go out and perform Reiki sessions on the public and charge for it until you have completed the third of level of training, which in our case is Level IIIa (Master Practitioner), for a good reason.  You need the experiences and practice of daily self-treating, coming to every Reiki share your teacher holds, getting together with your fellow classmates and doing trades, and working on lots of others (relatives,friends, pets, etc.) before you are really even ready to go out and start your business.  Even then, you are still  just "in training" for many years.

You can be an incredible Reiki channel some day, or you can connect so deeply with your pendulum that the things you do with it are almost beyond comprehension, but it takes years of dedication and practice, practice, practice to be channeling Reiki at the level of your teacher.  

The problem is that most people don't have the discipline or the drive to get to that point.
