In order to practice the healing art of Reiki, one must first receive the energy of Reiki through an attunement process. The Reiki energy is passed from a Reiki Master to a student and thus one becomes part of a lineage of Reiki healers going back to the founder of Reiki, Mikao Usui. The support of everyone in the lineage also helps each person during Reiki, if called upon. You could visualize this as one person standing behind another person and behind another in healing support and energy. At the same time, Reiki is Universal Energy (Rei- Divine or Universal, Ki- Energy) and it flows directly from the Divine Source. It is an intelligent energy that knows where it needs to go without the healer having to think about it. When a person has the intention to use Reiki, then it “turns on.” Still, there are more ways that are taught in the Reiki classes to enhance, direct, fine tune or diagnose the healing process.
The Reiki Attunement is administered during the Reiki I, Reiki II, and Reiki Master level classes, according to which attunements are appropriate for the level. As soon as one receives the energy, one may begin to use Reiki, however, it can take some time to fully integrate into one’s system. Also, the more it is used, the stronger it can flow. Reiki attunements are suitable for anyone, at any age. It is a gentle and safe energy, yet powerful. Its use can benefit the giver and the receiver, as well as Mother Earth, herself.
During the attunement process, the Reiki Master will touch the student’s head and shoulders and then special energies are passed on to the student over a course of around a half an hour or so. The process itself will not be described here in full, but is part of the training and energy to become a Reiki Master. It is only appropriate to learn this after going through the attunement processes, training, and practice, over time. The energetic aspects themselves are always guided by the Divine, free will, and one’s Highest Self. What occurs is that the energetic pathways in the student’s body become more open to connect to the Divine Source of Reiki and the flow of the healing energy. There is no need to worry whether or not the energy is right or not for each student because the energy simply adjusts to what is exactly right for each person and her or his energy.
The experience of a Reiki Attunement can be very simple and plain, or it can also bring many visions, colors, warmth in the hands and crown. One may see his or her healing guides, light, or any number of personal spiritual experiences. Whether one sees anything or not is unimportant. The attunement will automatically work in the way it should.
Here is a brief overview of the Reiki attunement workshops we offer
In the Reiki I Attunement, you will energetically receive Reiki and be connected to the lineage of Reiki so that you can begin to use it for healing. You will learn the history, philosophy, the meaning of Reiki, and how to work with the energies. You will learn some very important hand positions for healing; how to scan the body for blocks; and what goes into a Reiki treatment.
In Reiki II, you will learn and be attuned to work with three sacred symbols. You will also learn how to do distance healing. You will learn to work more deeply with mental and emotional issues in healing. You will work with Reiki in timelessness and also work more towards global healing issues. Reiki II gives you many important and profound tools to heal with the Reiki energy.
In the Reiki Master class you will be attuned on higher levels of Reiki so that you in turn can pass on the Reiki attunements to others if you wish. The class is focused on service, responsibility and how to work with Reiki for your clients, as well as making it a way of life. Reiki is meant to bring about change in the world through individual healing, and to bring peace on global levels. This class gives you support in mastering yourself and working with Reiki at the master level.
