Anyone can be attuned to Reiki. The Reiki attunement allows you to open yourself and your senses to the ancient art of Reiki to heal yourself and others. A Reiki attunement teaches you how to become a Reiki practitioner. Being attuned makes it easy to access the beautiful Reiki Energy, or Universal Life Force energy so that you can use it to heal people, animals, plants and situations. An attunement is a spiritual ceremony in which the Reiki master uses the symbols and gestures in a way prescribed by Dr. Mikao Usui, founder of Reiki Ryoho, opening your spiritual channels that the energy flows through. During the ceremony your chakras (energy centers of the body) are aligned allowing you to access the energy of Reiki. The energies are opened in your crown, heart and palm chakras so that the energy flows through your being. The Universal Life Energy flows from the Source in through your crown and heart and out through your hands. You will become a channel or conduit through which the energy flows. The ceremony attunes your energy field permanently and stays with you for the rest of your life. This opens you to the Universal Energies on all levels – physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and psychically.
The attunements are very balancing and healing themselves. As soon as the attunement is completed you will be able to access Reiki. The more you use Reiki the stronger your ability to use it will be. Using daily Reiki on yourself will help you to become happier and stronger.
Attunements can only be passed to students by a certified Reiki Master Teacher.
