"energy exchange" and payment for reiki

I read that there is a need for "energy exchange" for a reiki healing session - i read 2 reasons for it :

1 . cause if you dont give something your "full" and its harder for you to recive the benefits of reiki ............ so if the person pays for the treatment the reiki treatment can be much more effective

2 . if you dont pay for reiki than you just take ... and so you get a karmmic "Debt"


What are your thoughts about this ? and about each of the two points above ? how does this sit with people doing free reiki ?

I think asking for an energy exchange is a open invite to give a payment if you would like too. Without the practitioner actually asking for a specific amount. Even though others are more open to receiving Reiki there is still a hesitancy in believing it will help you.

Reiki masters spend hours upon hours learning, etc. As a society any service done for you gets paid. Why not Reiki?

There is no "better if you pay" or "get bad karma" if you don't. I send Reiki (free).... I'm honored to be a channel for Reiki to flow through me so I can help others. I give from my heart. Hope this helps :)

to further calrify :

* i definitely understand why a reiki practitioner would ask for money for the service provided

* im not talking about energy exchange as an open invite spesificly - but on asking for payment in general

i read the two concepts if i rememer correctly in the book : " reiki - universal life energy " by Bodo and Sharamon Shalila

they talk about the issue of giving in order to be able to recivie better - and not accumulating a karmic debt to the practitioner

I used to believe the energy exchange was necessary after my attunements and asked people to draw or paint me a picture. Some would have rather paid money.

These days. I don't treat people in the way I used to. And just let it flow where I think it does the most good.
If you need to eat, pay rent and such it's fine to ask for money.


I haven't found though that giving it away somehow diminishes anything. As for karmic debt. That always sounded a bit iffy to me. If reiki is supposed to come from somewhere outside of you and you are just a channel for the reiki energy to flow. I would think that you become the one indebted if you overcharge. The energy fills you up and spills over into the recipient. What have you given from yourself at that point except for time?

I don't believe that is even necessary. I've given lots of reiki healings to people and my animals freely without expecting or requiring anything in return.

Just read the book again - this book was recommended by my teacher - and it seems many recoomend it : "reiki - universal life energy " (bodo j baginski , shalila sharamon)

they give an example of a rich woman who went to dr hayashi clinic and to her the payment of money was too little , so her treatmnet was not effective ... until she started treating others with reiki so she was able to finally recive reiki because before she didnt give enoguh

they add there that taking without giving is like breathing in without breathing out

didnt find in the book something about karmic debt so that means i read it in a differnt article

so this still makes me worried about treating people without asking something in return ........ and also asking for free online healing from others

personally without reading about this concept i would feel fine : becoming a reiki healer like i want to , and charging people money for the effort ........... reciving free reiki online from others ...... giving free reiki to my family , and also to some people for free especially now when i need the training ... but reading about the "Energy exchange" does me doubt ignoring this thing is a smart thing to do

That's perfectly fine.
Maybe you cannexperimemt for yourself? I find energetic and karmic exchanges are extremely complex.
So treat a few people and charge what you think is appropriate, some what you think is a bit too much and some what you think is too little. Chack the results. And then investigate what made for effective treatments and what didn't. Maybe it was about something else than the money. Or maybe you find that reiki indeed works because of a monetary exchange.

Why is there any debt? I consider reiki a gift from the universe and I just pass it on.
