Meet Kirti, The Trusted Reiki Grandmaster from India

Can you please tell us what Reiki is?
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. 

People say that Reiki is not a science-based practice and it gives the placebo effect. Can you please tell us what is a placebo effect and whether what they say is correct?
I am not sure as I never thought of Reiki either as a non-science or as a placebo effect. Placebo effect is when someone says that you will be all right and your mind admits and you actually get well. In a placebo effect if a doctor gives you a sugar pill saying that it is a 100% cure for any of your problem, then your mind will accept it and your body will process itself to mend the illness. 

According to me, Reiki doesn't give a Placebo effect. A patient can actually feel the vibrations of energy. 

You neither feel the vibrations of the pill given nor the genuineness of the medicine in a placebo experiment.

Can Reiki cure any illness?
Yes, Reiki can heal any illness. Even Cancer was being treated in past with Reiki. 

Can you please give us a couple of references to your above statement?
My mother attuned a throat cancer patient {in earlier stage} into 1st Degree and she practised it regularly on herself. Her surgery, later on, was successful and she recovered faster.

What are the ailments that Reiki cannot heal?
It cannot heal a mind that doesn’t want to heal itself.

Can you please tell us a bit more on that?
Any Healing modality can help you when your mind allows to let it heal your body. No matter how desperate your soul is to heal any ailment in your body. If your mind orders that “I can’t Heal”, your body can’t heal itself. When we don't let our mind be the master then we will never be able to reach to the signs our soul sends us. And so, the mind don’t let our body heal.

Can Reiki be practised for self-healing?
Yes, Reiki is practised as Self-Healing and needs to be a part of Daily Practice.

For general physical and mental health, you mean? Just like going to a gym for a workout or doing yoga exercises daily to keep fit?
Yes, exactly. We need to practice Reiki each day. It helps in healing ourselves at Mental, Spiritual and Physical level.

How long have you been practising Reiki for yourself?
Truly speaking I do it on and off to myself but since my son was born, I am doing it to him daily.

Have you got cured of any illnesses using Reiki healing for yourself?
I can say that. I was diagnosed with minor thyroid and I healed it. I healed my sugar addiction to some extent and it’s a lifelong process. I manifested my son by keeping trust on Reiki and doing it to my womb {in addition to Law of Attraction}.

Can you say that you are a healthy person now that you are practising Reiki healing for yourself?
Reiki works on all the level Mind, Body and Soul.  It is a myth that Reiki healers never get ill. As we have to pay for our past karmas we get sickness and happiness accordingly. But yes daily practice keeps anyone free of negative energies and vibrations.

How long would it take for the healer to heal a Migraine, for example?
Actually, in any healing modality healer is a medium to bring the Life Force Energy to the patient. The energy heals a person according to the acceptance and belief of the recipient. Patient’s body and energetic vibrations decide how long will it take to heal them. But it helps instantly in pain relief when given for at least 15 to 30 minutes.

Do you say that those ailments that need surgery can also be cured by Reiki healing method?
If the ailment is at the primary stage and rarely need surgery at the moment then it can be cured. But the acceptance of energy and belief of the recipient is the healer in itself. 

Is Reiki a spiritual thing?
Yes, Reiki is Spiritual but not Religious practice.

Why did you learn Reiki?
I got attuned to Reiki 1st Degree in 2004 when I was 20 Years old. I didn’t know much, but I wanted to learn it as I read about Reiki somewhere on the Internet. I learnt it as I was curious about it and now it has become my daily practice.

1st Degree is the first level of the Reiki Course, I suppose. How many degrees should one have to complete to become a Certified Reiki Healer?
Yes. There are 3 levels mainly. 1st degree is Hands on Healing, 2nd degree is Distant Healing, the 3rd degree is divided into 2 levels. 3rd A is Master healer and 3rd B is Grand Master healer or Master and teacher certification.

Except for these main degrees a.k.a. levels there are much more which are created by different healers around the world.

Reiki level/Degree 1st and 2nd are enough for anyone to heal themselves and people around.

Are you a certified Reiki healer?
Yes, I am a Certified Reiki Grandmaster {i.e. master and teacher} since 2006.

You mean, one can become a teacher when they complete all the degrees of the Reiki course and then one has to do a master degree to become a Grandmaster. Is that right?
Yes. That is right.

Can Reiki be practised by anybody irrespective of their religion, gender and their nationality?
Yes. You just need attunements from a Reiki Master and Teacher who initiate you to Reiki.

Attunements and initiate? Can you please tell us more?
They are both the synonyms in a way. Attunement is to initiate or connect your energy field to the Universal Life Force. So, we sometimes use Attune and sometimes can use initiate. The initiate is to start something new.

Does Reiki enhance the mental stability as much as it enhances the physical state of being?
Yes, it helps in any mental issues as it treats the bodily issues.

Can Reiki healing be done to elderly persons and little children?
Yes, Age is no bar. My 65+-year-old Grandmother got attuned into Reiki 1st degree and she did Reiki to herself for recovery from a surgery later on. 

And I am giving Reiki to my 7-year-old son since the starting of my pregnancy.

Do you say that you gave Reiki energies to your son while he was still in your womb?
Yes, I used to do Reiki regularly throughout my pregnancy. And never had any severe pregnancy issues.

How do you think it has helped him and what differences do you observe between a normal kid and your son?
Although, we all come on this earth with some mission, purpose and our past karmas, but by doing Reiki to my child helped him to be more connected to the Universal Energy. And it strengthens our bond to a great extent. He has a few allergies since childhood but his body heal faster through natural remedies and medicines and Reiki.

I understand that Reiki can be practised for a quick recovery after any surgery. Is my understanding, right?
Yes, but not instant. The patient’s body takes some time but it heals faster than any other case.

I am a Yoga practitioner and I know that Yoga is a holistic healing method. Is Reiki also a holistic healing method?
Yes, it is one of the holistic healing modalities and was used by Lord Buddha himself.

Is Lord Buddha the founder of this healing method?
Although, healing through hands and words is an ancient modality in India. But yes, it is said that Buddha used to heal people.

What should I do if I want to become a Reiki Healer?
If you want to learn Reiki, then you need to find an authentic Reiki Master and teacher.

How can they be found?
the Internet is filled with a lot of information about Reiki healers, but if you want a list of healers and masters around you I recommend people to check  They have many healers and masters registered to their directory. There are many other websites. But I usually recommend this one the most.

Can Reiki be practised for long distance healing?
Yes, after the 2nd-degree attunements the healer can send Reiki to people at any distance, at any time and at anything on earth.

By anything, you mean to even immovable objects like mountains?

Which means you can send Reiki energies to help people around the globe because you said you are a Grandmaster?
Yes, because I am attuned to 2nd degree. Any person who is attuned to 1st and 2nd degree can heal anyone and anything around the globe.

Can you give us a little more information in this long-distance healing? Should the healer and the receiver be ready and aligned at the same time to connect through the mind? Since you said that the receiver should be ready to receive energies, then it is in the mind especially since they are not in the same place. Right?
The receiver and Healer both need to be ready for the healing to receive and give Reiki. A specific time is needed, but we can feed Reiki to reach to a person at any mutually convenient time. No time zone affects the Reiki energy and healing.

While I was surfing the Internet, I found that there are Reiki symbols that can be used during a healing process. Is it necessary to use the Symbols by a Reiki Practitioner?
Yes, they bring extra power to the healing. They are taught from the 2nd degree.

You mean the 2nd level of learning to become a Reiki Healer?

Do you use any Reiki symbols for healing?
Yes, I use all the Reiki symbols.

How many symbols are there?
The symbols are usually kept secret as they have no value for non-Reiki people. There are lots of Symbols used while healing through Reiki.

Even in the long-distance healing?
Reiki symbols once learned and attuned in a person while Attunements can be used anytime and anywhere.

Do Reiki practitioners have an association for them to address or discuss or help if any issues arise? 
Yes... But I am not a part of any such association... So don't know much.

I know a woman (whose identity I can’t reveal) said that she attended the full course of Reiki healing and it didn’t help her Migraines. What do you think would be the reasons? How many sessions are considered as a full course?
There is no full course or specific timing for healing. As I already said healing any ailment depends on the belief of the patient and their acceptance.

There can be different reasons for not getting cured:

  • Maybe the healer was a new practitioner and wasn't able to express the information about Reiki properly.
  • Maybe the person didn't believe the healer’s capability. {at higher level of her consciousness}
  • Maybe the patient wasn't sure if she is receiving the energy or not.

These are only a few assumptions. The real issue can be revealed by talking and understanding the mindset of the patient. 

If any of the readers of this interview would like to know more, how can they contact you?
They can check my website or contact me at 


For Your Growth :)
Uma Mahi.
