Q: Do Reiki practitioners need to be vegetarian, or “really spiritual”?
A: Nope. That said, practicing Reiki does tend to make you keenly aware of a spiritual connection, and may change the way you feel about spirituality. Will that affect the way you live, eat, treat others? Only you can decide, but in many cases, the answer is “yes.” You begin to feel connected to all that is alive, and that connection can have a powerful impact on your life.
As far as your diet, that is totally up to you. You may feel inclined to treat your body in a more healthful way, you may find you crave sweets or fatty foods less, or even that you wish to make other changes in your lifestyle. But the Reiki energy will flow for you when you ask for it regardless.
There are those who feel that a completely vegan, raw-food diet is the best for your spiritual development. It may be, however I do not do that at this point in my life, and I am growing and working with energy every day in a strong and effective way. Perhaps at some point I may make some changes in that direction, but I trust that the energy flows for me to support what I feel guided to do.
