Who Can Learn Reiki? A person does not learn Reiki through long years of study, fasting, meditation or special spiritual practices or by achieving high levels of enlightenment. The ability to channel Reiki energy is simply passed on from teacher to student through a specific attunement or initiation process during a Reiki class. As soon as the initiation takes place, the student is able to channel an unlimited supply of universal life force energy from the God Consciousness. So Reiki is easy to learn by anyone who takes a Reiki class and is attuned.
Reiki does not follow the arduous practices of many other healing modalities. Rather, it is transferred to the student by the Reiki Master during the attunement process. The attunement opens the student’s crown, heart and palm chakras and makes adjustments according to the needs of the individual student, clearing a permanent pathway for Reiki energies to flow. The Reiki Master connects the student directly with the Reiki source, Rei or God-consciousness. This is a life-time connection that cannot be undone, regardless of whether the student continues to practice Reiki or not.
How Does One Learn Reiki? Anyone can learn to channel Reiki healing energy. It is not necessary to have meditated for years or to have become a mystic on a mountain. Reiki is easily learned by taking a class and receiving the attunements from a Reiki Master teacher. However, it is important to note that not all Reiki classes are created equal. Some Reiki classes are very short and superficial, with the expectation that the student will study and practice the material and techniques on her own; while others are much more comprehensive with full instruction and hands on practice; and still others are anywhere outside or in between, including the internet (distant attunements are NOT recommended). Before one signs up for a class, it is important to find out at least three things: 1.Who is the teacher (i.e. their experience practicing and teaching Reiki, their style of Reiki, their lineage)? 2. What does the class include (i.e. system, orientation, content, hours of instruction and hands-on practice, manual, certificate)? In other words, what experience, knowledge and skills will you have when the class is over? 3. Energetically, what feels right for me?
Reiki is generally taught at three levels: Reiki I, Reiki II, Reiki III (Master level), although some systems, like the one I teach, split Reiki III level into two parts, Advanced Reiki Training (IIIa) and Master (IIIb), which is most often taught as a three-day class.
The attunement process is a deeply personal, profoundly healing experience that awakens the student to the wisdom and love of the Higher Power. Thereafter, the development of skills and sensitivities to the application of this healing system is up to the individual practitioner through intention and practice.
Reiki I should provide a solid overview of the origin and history of Reiki, the nature of Reiki energy, what causes sickness, what Reiki is and how it heals; discussion of the Human Energy Field, Gassho meditation, the complete hand placement system, and Japanese healing techniques; and must include the Reiki I Placements (attunements) and hands on practice for healing self and others. Students should be able to feel the flow of energy.
Reiki II should provide a thorough understanding of three Reiki healing symbols, their meaning, their powers, and their uses; additional Japanese healing techniques and meditations that balance and clear the energy channels and connect them to the unlimited flow of Reiki energy; and must include the Reiki II Placement and hands on practice using all symbols and distant healing. Students should discern the different feel of each symbol’s energy as it flows through them.
Reiki III should prepare the Reiki practitioner to do the work of a Master practitioner and teacher. Those who want advanced training and Placement, and the use of the powerful Master Symbol, but do not wish to teach Reiki, may take Reiki IIIa (Advanced Reiki Training) alone. Those who want to teach will go on to Reiki IIIb (Master) training to learn how to give each of the Placements and Holy Fire ignitions for the appropriate levels to their future students. They are also oriented to becoming a true Reiki Master.
Most students will take the entire 3 day Master class to be complete in one’s training.
Karuna Reiki© should prepare the Reiki Master for the truly compassionate action that the word Karuna embodies. Instruction includes practitioner and Master Ignitions and the use of eight Karuna symbols and two Master symbols for profoundly deeper healing on the emotional, mental and spiritual levels.
