How Long Does Reiki Training Take?

Every Reiki Master has an opinion on how long one should wait till receiving their next Reiki attunement. Some Masters require their students to wait 3 months or longer between levels 1 and 2. And up to a year before receiving their Master Attunement.

My Reiki level 1&2 courses attunements are passed in one day. Master Degree Level and Teacher Level attunements are passed over one day. However you have access to all online courses material for life. It will take a few weeks to get through my online course material.

Within 2 days you could be a fully attuned, qualified and certified Reiki Teacher. Each attunement lays a foundation which should be built upon. And of course with practise your skills will develop.

How Long Will Reiki Last After Attunement?

Reiki lasts for life after your attunement and will work at will upon your command. Reiki is similar to a muscle in the sense that the more you use it the stronger it gets. Receiving additional repeat attunements is available to all students and is an effective way of strengthening your Reiki further by re-cleansing yourself.

If you do not use Reiki regularly however, the degree of energy you are able to channel will reduce. So to keep your energy levels high and to continually advance, you need to practise.

How to Learn Reiki

You can learn Reiki in-person, with your master performing an attunemnt directly on your physical body. Or you can learn Reiki online and have an attunement done from a distance. Which involves sitting on your own while your Reiki Master performs your attunement.

Starting your training online has many benefits. If you would like more Reiki info and want to learn advanced Reiki online, check out my online Reiki courses page for more information on what you will learn.

If you live in the UK and wish to find a Reiki Teacher to attune you in person, you may find teachers at the following websites: (Worldwide Teachers Listed Too)

How Reiki is Used

Reiki empowers the manifesting ability of your thoughts, feelings and intentions. It does this by connecting you with The Source, which is where Reiki comes from.

You can then access that energy using the Reiki symbols to get the energy flowing. You can then use that energy for self-healing, healing others, or manifesting.

Reiki can be channelled in-person or from a distance. And using it is as simple as intending to do so. However the Reiki symbols are handy training tools to help you understand how to do that. So Reiki can be used with your hands, or can be done entirely within your head.

How Reiki Helps in Decision Making

If you have a Reiki treatment or attunement, this can help to improve focus, concentration and clarity. It can also help you to intuitively feel what the best direction for you is.

Receiving a Reiki attunement will help to improve your decision making on a permanent basis. And your intuition and awareness will continue to expand and improve.

Reiki can also help you to develop intuitive and psychic abilities so you can ask questions and receive responses. This can help you with decision making and help guide you on your journey.

Reiki has also been proven by science to reduce blood pressure, stress, and improve peace and relaxation. All these attributes of Reiki help to keep you calm and anxiety free.

How Reiki Was Discovered

One of the Reiki Masters people are most familiar with is Master Mikao Usui. It is known that Master Usui, who was a scholar, buddhist monk and mystic, awakened his ability to heal with Reiki after years of research, training and meditation.

It was Master Usui's form of Reiki that was spread throughout the world around 100 years ago. However Reiki is far older than the Japanese origins of it.

We know Reiki was practices in ancient Tibet, China, Egypt and India, to name only a few places. Energy channelling practices similar to Reiki were documented as being practiced several thousand years ago in ancient India. However these practices were traditionally kept secret within orders and groups due to persecution.

It is only relatively recently that Reiki has begun to spread throughout the world again and is more accessible to the public.

How Reiki Symbols Work

How Reiki Heals

Everything in the Universe is made from energy. You are made from energy. Therefore illness and disease can be viewed as being a specific frequency of energy. Or in other words, energy disharmony.

Illnesses and diseases can be traced to negative energy blockages within you. Reiki heals by channelling high vibration positive energy into this low vibration negative energy. When you do this, Reiki breaks up this negative energy so it can be released from your body.

It's this release of negative energy from your body and being that allows you to heal on every level. You can get more Reiki info on how Reiki heals and read an in depth account for how Reiki heals at the article link.

When Reiki Doesn't Work

It's important to know that you are not the one that performs a healing session. The Source performs the healing. And it is not your decision or will that determines how a person is healed. It is The Will of The Source.

So you are free from the results of your healing sessions. As it is The Will of The Source that determines the results of a healing session.

Some times a healing session does not have immediately noticeable results. Sometimes there will be parts of a person that needs healing that is not what the client wishes to be healed. So rest assured that whatever happens in your healing session, it will be for the highest benefit. Even if those results are not noticeable to you.

When Reiki Hurts

On occasion, receiving a Reiki treatment can cause some physical pain. Where someone has an existing physical injury, or an injury that has not healed properly, a person can experience physical pain.

This physical pain is a sign of physical movements as the body is correcting itself and being healed. This pain will typically disappear as soon as the healing session has finished.

Reiki When Pregnant

It is perfectly safe to receive a Reiki treatment when pregnant. This can actually help to calm and relax mother and child and can help mothers deal with the pain of childbirth.

Reiki When Drunk

There is no harm in having Reiki done to you while drunk, or doing it while you are drunk. However having a high level of toxins in your body during a Reiki treatment will dilute the effectiveness of the healing energy.

As a principle, Reiki should not be used when drunk as this person is not of sound mind when intoxicated. Reiki is about healing. And healing is not best done while intoxicating the same body you are trying to heal.

When Should Reiki Not Be Used?

It's advised that Reiki should not be used on broken bones or severed fingers. As this can speed up the healing process before the body has been treated by a healthcare professional.

Reiki will have an immediate effect upon the receiver. However it will continue to effect the receiver for a few days afterwards. If you receive a healing treatment from someone who is very advanced in Reiki, healing can stay with you for several weeks.

It is also possible for advanced practitioners to 'program' Reiki, and to send it continuously to someone on a permanent basis by using certain advanced techniques.

When to Use Reiki Symbols

Reiki symbols ar best used when you are just starting your Reiki journey. The Reiki symbols are important training tools to help you understand the relationship between Reiki, the symbols, The Source, and your own thouhts and intentions.

Giving Reiki When Sick

It's best to only channel Reiki to someone when you are feeling physically well and healthy. On occasion you may feel a little drained when performing Reiki. So it's best that you are feeling fit and healthy.



Who Invented Reiki?

Reiki practitioners come from all walks of life and all professions.

Who Needs Reiki?

Who Can Do Reiki?

Anyone can do Reiki who has the ability to think and willfully create intentions. So anyone of sound mind can learn how to do Reiki effectively. No matter their age, sex, religion or belief.



Which Reiki Is Best?

Some forms of Reiki are more advanced than others. Usui Reiki, or at least the form we practise in the West, is a good starting point.

Karuna Reiki compliments Usui Reiki and offers you more power and a higher stream of energy to work with. These two forms of Reiki are great to get you started and to help you achieve mental, emotional, and physical balance and health.

Beyond this, and if you are serious about developing spiritually, Tummo Reiki is the most advanced form of Reiki/Yoga available. Tummo Reiki activates the Kundalini energy and the spiritual heart, which are the keys to real spiritual growth.

Both kundalini energy and the spiritual heart and coded in the Christian Bible as the secret path to connecting with God. This is the same practise that monks and Yogi's use to communicate with The Source.

The Reiki I teach merges all three of these forms of Reiki and is available online at the Reiki Training page. This is a work in progress and levels 1 to 4 are currently available and level 5 is in production. Levels 6 to 10 will come in due course. Get more Reiki info at that previous link.

Which Is Better Reiki or Reflexology?

Both of these types of therapy are different. One is not necessarily better than the other. It depends upon your goals. Reiki is used for spiritual growth. Reflexology is used as a therapeutic treatment.

However both Reiki and reflexology work together powerfully and complement each other beautifully. Experts at Reiki and Reflexology can receive very detailed intuitive information on a client. And this can help to offer deeper insight into the illness and disease experienced by their clients.

Why Reiki Attunement

Reiki attunements connect you with the healing energy of Reiki. This is the quickest way to advance spiritually and to learn how to channel healing energy.
