"Reiki" literally means, "Life Force-God Energy", Rei-Ki *(RAY-KEY)
Welcome! New to the energies of Reiki or are wanting to know more? Once attuned to Reiki, you are attuned for life :)
This signals a deep awakening within, that is curious, ready, and open to potential. That's the first sign of a great student! I am a Reiki Master/Teacher (That's how they say Level III of III), otherwise I'm known as a Reiki Practitioner, Level III initiate or Master. There are 3 levels of Reiki which you get attuned to by the Master/Teacher/Level III initiate.
What's the Point with Reiki?
Energy maintenance. It is my belief that the mind and body are connected, and when we are mis-aligned in many ways or unbalanced, we can create dis-ease unintentionally... so Reiki is a way to help keep your 7+ energy centers (or Chakras) in balanced harmony so you are not blocked. A blocked person is a very unhappy, sick and physically weak individual in terms of strength. A blocked person can also have an accentuation of one or two symptoms whether they be mental, physical or on a deep emotional level. Reiki heals us by first healing ourselves (level 1, 2, and 3) and then being able to give it to others and pass it on.
Have you ever received a Reiki healing/relaxation session?
If you're fresh to all that Reiki is an can be used for, I'd start with first having a Reiki session whether it be distantly or in-person! I suggest this so that you are aware of what the energy is like.
Reiki feels different each time it is given and received, but it does the same thing: Naturally bring your body, mind and spirit back to balance. That's what Reiki as a complimentary healing modality does: It brings you and the receiver more balancing, directed (loving, and in the spirit of the highest good of all involved)-God-force Energy that is life giving.
Interested in being attuned to level 1 ?
Level 1 is a healing place, as are all levels, and it will allow you to be able to give and receive Reiki (whomever gives also receives simultaneously!) to yourself and others in your physical spaces (including plants and animals). You must be attuned to level 1 before 2, and 2 before 3. I span my attunements over a period of time determined by Myself and my student. Usually about a month between each level.
Wait, what is an Attunement?
An attunement is when your Reiki Teacher does a distant or in person (since Reiki does not acknowledge the existence of time and space = there is no distance) healning session that initiates and opens up your Chakras to infuse certain & specific Reiki keys (or symbols) that they have also been attuned to. Think of it as passing the great Torch/Flame. Each level, Level 1, 2 AND 3, have a different number of attunements and each phase has its own Manual.
Do you have to go to level 3 If you're wanting to be a Level 1 initiate?
Only if going up a level is what you desire, should you study for the next. You can go one step at a time and decide in the future, as well.
Level 1: Heal yourself and those in your immediate environment.
Level 2: Heal Yourself, Others, and distantly as well + learn more techniques to do so distantly
Level 3: Heal yourself, Others, heal distantly, and become able to give attunements and teach Reiki to others, as well as practice reiki.
