If I learned Reiki, and don’t use it for a long time, will it stop working?

Q: If I learned Reiki, and don’t use it for a long time, will it stop working?

A: No. But if you stop working with the Reiki energy for a long period, when you start again, you may not feel the energy at first, or it might be very slight compared with the time when you were practicing regularly. That doesn’t mean it has stopped working, it means you need practice.

Think of it this way: your intuition is a muscle, it’s just an energetic one rather than a physical one. So if you had been exercising your body regularly, and were fit and strong, and then you stop exercising for a long time, what happens? You still have your muscles, sure. But if you go to try to exercise again, you will have a hard time. Your muscles need to be trained again in order for you to recover your fitness as it used to be.

Same with Reiki. If you had been exercising your intuition by practicing Reiki regularly, and then you stop, it will take some regular, mindful practice for you to feel the energy with the same intensity as you once did. But it’s there – your intuition never goes away – it is a part of you. You just need to reestablish the connection and strengthen it again.

You might wonder if you need to be attuned again. There is no harm in doing this, as it may “jump start” your connection again. But you can achieve the same results by practicing Reiki for a few minutes every day.
