Reiki is not taught in the way other healing technique is taught. It is transferred to the student by the Reiki master during an attunement process. This process opens the crown, heart, and palm chakras and creates a special link between the student and the Reiki source.
The Reiki attunement is a powerful spiritual experience. The attunement energies are channeled into the student through the Reiki Master. The process is guided by the Rei or god – consciousness and makes adjustments in the process depending on the needs of each student. The attunement is also attended by Reiki guides and other spiritual beings who help implement the process. Many report having mystical experiences involving personal massages, healings, vision’s, and past life experiences.
The attunement can also increase psychic sensitivity. Some students report experiences involving: opening of the third eye, increased intuitive awareness. And other psychic abilities after receiving a Reiki attunement.
Once you have started receiving a Reiki attunement, you will have Reiki for the reminder of your life. It dose not were off and you can never lose it. Experimentation has found that additional attunement of the same level add to the value of that level. These benefits include refinement of the Reiki energy one is channeling. Increased strength of the energy, healing of personal problems, clarity of mind, increased psychic sensitivity, and a raised level of consciousness.
The Reiki attunement can start a cleansing process that affects the physical body as well as the mind and emotions. Toxins that have been stored in the body may be released along with feeling and thought patterns that are no longer useful. Therefore, a process of
Purification prior to the attunement is recommended to improve the benefit one receives.
Giving Reiki – How Reiki Works
After the attunement, all that is necessary for the practitioner to use Reiki is to place their hands on the person to be healed with the intention of healing. The Reiki energies will begin flowing automatically. Reiki has its own intelligence and knows exactly where to go and what to do. It is not necessary for the practitioner to direct the Reiki. In fact, Reiki has a mind of its own and cannot be directed by the practitioner. It communicates with the client’s higher self and uses this information to decide where to go and what to do. The best results are achieved by simply remaining calm and relaxed and allowing Reiki to work.
Can Never Cause Harm
Because Reiki is guided by the god – consciousness, it can never do harm. It always knows what a person needs and will adjust itself to create the effect that is appropriate for them. One never need worry about whether to give Reiki or not. It is always helpful.
In addition, because the practitioner does not direct the healing and does not decide what to work on, or what to heal, the practitioner is not in danger of taking on the karma of the client because the practitioner is not doing the healing. It is also much easier for the ego to stay out of the way and allow the presence of god to clearly shine through.
Because it is a channeled healing, the Reiki practitioner’s energies are never depleted. In fact, the Reiki consciousness considers both practitioner and client to be in need of healing, so both get treated. Because of this, giving a treatment always increases ones energy and leaves one surrounded with loving feeling of well – being.
Who can learn Reiki?
The ability to learn Reiki is not dependent on intellectual capacity. Not does one have to be able to mediate. It does not take years of practice. It is simply passed on from the teacher to the student. As soon as this happens, one has and can do Reiki. Because of this, it is easily learned by anyone.
Reiki is a pure form of healing not dependent on individual talent or acquired ability. Because of this, the personality of the healer is less likely to cloud the significance of the experience. The feeling of being connected directly to god’s healing love and protection is clearly apparent.
Self - Treatment
In addition to using Reiki on others, you can also treat yourself. This is one of the wonderful advantages of Reiki. It works just as well on you as it does on others; complete instruction is given in the Reiki training for self – treatment. The section on hand positions lists the steps necessary to give yourself a complete standard treatment.
Bipolar Nature of Reiki
Clairvoyant observation has indicated that Reiki is bipolar in nature. It is made up of both male and female healing energies. The male part comes from above. It is associated with the crown and higher chakras and is called Shiva in tile Tantra system. The female part comes from below, is associated with the root chakra and is called Shakti in the Tantra system. These two energies communicate with each other and decide how much of each
Polarity is needed so that when the energies leave the hands, they have the proper combination of male and female healing energies for the person being treated. It is interesting to note that when more than one person is working on a client, the Reiki communicates with all the practitioners involved giving some more of male energy to channel and others more of the female energies so that the proper mix is maintained for the client.
How Does Reiki Heal?
We are alive because life force is flowing though us. Life force flows within the physical body through pathways called chakras, meridians and nadis. It also flows around us in a field of energy called the aura. Life force nourishes the organs and cells of the body, supporting them in their vital functions. When this flow of life force is disrupted, it causes diminished function in one or more of the organs and tissues of the physical body.
The life force is responsive to thoughts and feelings. It becomes disrupted when we accept, either consciously or unconsciously, negative thoughts or feelings about ourselves. These negative thoughts and feelings attach themselves to the energy filed and cause a disruption in the flow of the force. This diminishes the vital function of the organs and cells of the physical body.
Reiki heals by flowing thoughts the affected parts of the energy field and charging them with positive energy. It raises the vibratory level of the energy field in and around the physical body where the negative thoughts and feeling are attached. This causes the negative energy to break apart and fall away. Reiki is believed to clears, straightens and heals the energy pathways, thus allowing the life force to flow in a healthy and natural way.

A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance and has many benefits for both client and practitioner, including altered states of consciousness and spiritual experiences.
If a client has a health condition, and wants to be treated with Reiki, it is recommended that they do so under the supervision of an enlightened medical doctor or other health care professional. Reiki will improve the results of all medical treatment, acting to reduce negative side effects, shorten healing time, reduce or eliminate pain, reduce stress, and help create optimism.
Reiki is not a Religion
While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. It has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe in order to learn and use Reiki. In fact, Reiki is not dependent on belief at all and will work whether you believe in it or not. It is believed that Reiki comes from god. Many people find that using Reiki puts them more in touch with the experience of their religion rather then having only an intellectual concept of it.
