Reiki Attunements


The Reiki attunement process enables the recipient to permanently open and connect to the Universal Reiki Energies on mental, physical, emotional and psychic level. It also clears and balances many important energy channels within the body.

Each attunement received, opens up to higher levels of healing and understanding Universal Spirituality. Once one is attuned, Reiki will flow through the person for the rest of his/her life.

It is very easy to learn Reiki. Every one can be initiated to Reiki. No special background or knowledge is required, so anyone of any age can learn and practice it.

Attunements are usually given by a Reiki Master in person or remotely and there are three formal levels of initiation.

Levels of Reiki Attunements

REIKI LEVEL I: At this level the initiate is permanently attuned and connected to the Reiki source of healing energy. Once initiated it allows a person to performing healing on oneself and others. It requires no special invocation or alteration of the thinking process to "turn on the flow" of Reiki. By simply placing the hands and opening the hart to love, one automatically brings in the energy.

The First Degree is the foundation for all three degrees, and should be mastered first before the person considered for the next level.

This level deals with physical issues.

REIKI LEVEL II :The initiate is attuned again to better connect with energies that heal mental and emotional issues and that can travel across any distance and time. You can practice sending distance healing to your friends and family, even animals.

The power symbol learned can be used to help focus energy for specific purposes. In order to receive this initiation, one must have been previously attuned to Reiki I.

REIKI LEVEL III/MASTER: All the Reiki energy is unlocked when attuned to this level. At this level the initiate will be able to perform Reiki attunements to others. One must have been previously attuned to Level I and II in order to receive this level.

Reiki Self-Attunement

A 5 minute meditation to help you experiment with Reiki self-attunement.

Traditional wisdom is that Reiki needs to be “switched on” via an attunement, and the attunement needs to be done by a Reiki Master.

But the culmination and evolution of Reiki over the years has opened it to a more assessable energy. In effect Reiki is ready to give attunements directly to the recipient, and you, the recipient is ready to receive attunements directly from Reiki. Our era of self-healing and personal empowerment has truly arrived! Read the article Reiki has become Open Source by Elaine Hamilton Grundy. 

Listen to the meditation with an open heart and willingness to receive.
