I was talking with one of my students tonight just to tell her about the e-mail I had sent off. During the conversation, I mentioned that I would be having a Reiki 3 class before too, too long. She told me that both her, and her sister have already been attuned by another teacher.

Obviously, this came as a shock. She explained that the energies just drew them that way, and it had nothing to do with me personally. I can accept this, as most people are drawn to me by the energies. Yet, I can't help but feel that I failed as a teacher somewhere.

I know that people are drawn to where they need to be by whatever needs they have, and where their path takes them. And I have no idea who she went to for the remainder of her training. I can't help but wonder what this person teaches that I don't, or what they do different.

Usually, it is me that pulls people from other instructors. They come to me because I teach more, and differently, than most people. This is unusual being on the other end of things.

I have to ask myself if there really is anything I could have done differently. Is it just the energies as she said, or is it something else? Is it something in my energies that make me come off as not doing what I preach? Or is it truly just her path that she needs to take? I guess I'll never know.

I guess what I need to do is accept (there's that word again) and move on. I could waste a lot of energy wondering what could have been different. Ok, so once I finish typing this, I'll put it behind me.

The universe is simply a lot of pathways of energy. Everyone moves along their own route. My student will move along hers, and I will move along mine. That is how things are supposed to work. If our paths meet at any point, then there is a reason for it. Maybe we'll meet again sometime.
