Practitioners of Reiki are all taught that when you give someone a Reiki session, you are also getting a Reiki session yourself. This is because all of that lovely Diving Reiki energy comes into us first, before it flows out to the person we are giving Reiki to.

I am not so sure that I agree with that hypothesis at this point. I have several pretty significant health issues and I see clients almost daily, sometimes several a day, and my health issues are still with me and not improving.  So what does this mean in the context of the initial statement I made?

This is my theory. Just like your clients need to be doing the internal and external work that is needed to really heal themselves, so DO WE!  Be it journaling, eating right, exercising regularly, getting enough good restful and restorative sleep, or seeing a therapist, acupuncturist, doctor, etc., or quitting smoking, drinking, eating junk food, and getting out of toxic relationships, jobs, and friendships.  Whatever it takes to bring you into wholeness.  Also as practitioners, we really need to be doing that daily Reiki self healing routine.

No we are not immune to the need to do all these things ourselves just because we are Reiki attuned. It's all about taking responsibility for your own healing.

Reiki is wonderful, magical and miraculous, don't get me wrong, but it's not the be all and end all. Take control of your own healing, figure out what your body is trying to tell you and get the help you need, or do the things you need to do bring bring body back into balance.  Yes, have that Reiki session - we all need Reiki to replenish our stores of energy, clear out any negative and stagnant energy, open, clear and balance the chakras, and all the other amazing things having a Reiki session does.  But we also need to take back out power to do what we can do to really heal.
