Continually Connecting to Ever Flowing Reiki

Continually Connecting to Ever Flowing Reiki

Early on in my Reiki practice, I knew in my head that Reiki is infinite, but I was more inclined compartmentalize it, to treat it as something that is called in under special circumstances, such as before healing myself or others.
