I discovered Reiki three years ago, and did three levels. Reiki is a system for self healing and transformation, expansion of awareness.
This is a gentle healing, that channels pure Universal Life Force Energy through the hands.
At each level the amount of energy is expanded, and the vibration of the practitioner is increased.
WHAT IS REIKI?
Reiki is a natural system of energy healing (or spiritual healing) performed by a practitioner laying the hands on or near a series of locations on the recipient, and running the Reiki Energy. This energy is the life force that permeates the universe. This energy flows through the practitioner, but it is not generated by the practitioner. This method is to help body and spirit with intuitive power. Reiki practitioners can also work remotely (at a distance). These remote techniques are usually taught at the second degree level.
USES FOR REIKI
Reiki can be used to alleviate or heal physical, mental, spiritual, or emotional suffering. This means that Reiki can heal. This is not a guarantee that a person will be relieved of any ailment with a single or with multiple Reiki treatments. In most cases, Reiki does enhance the effects of medical treatment when used along it. Reiki can do no harm and cannot be used for any harmful purpose. Reiki enhances the body's natural ability to heal itself, and can increase the body's stamina and vitality. Reiki treatments promote relaxation and reduce stress. Reiki will go wherever it is most needed in the body and aura. It helps to cleanse the body of energetic and physical toxins, and to harmonize and balance the total person.
Reiki will work whether you believe in it or not. Reiki does not use medical equipment. Every human being has healing power. Reiki materializes the healing power that humans have. Practitioners of Reiki can also self-heal, and bring healing to all living creatures (plants, animals, insects, etc.).
WHAT IS A REIKI ATTUNEMENT?
This is when a Reiki Master or Teacher passes on the ability to channel the Reiki energy to a student of Reiki. This will also serve to balance the student's body and spirit, and connect the student to the ability to run reiki energy by means of a direct transmission to your energy body (spirit).
An attunement is usually given during instruction of Reiki techniques. Reiki is usually taught in three levels as follows: Reiki I, Reiki II and Reiki III, with III being the Master level. In level one, the student is taught basic techniques for hands on treatment for self and others. In Level two, the student learns techniques for remote healing. Level three adds a spiritual or intuitive healing energy function. It also adds the ability to attune others to use Reiki themselves and the ability to become a teacher of reiki.
