I read this somewhere and thought it was a great description. If anyone knows where it came from, let me know so I can credit the author.

2. You must have FAITH in your ability to work with the Reiki Energy.
3. BELIEVE you have the skills and the knowledge to teach others.
4. A Master must have HUMILITY and recognise that they are merely the conduit for the Reiki energy and the knowledge they share.
