Today there are so many more Reiki practitioners and Masters than when I was introduced to Reiki years ago. It is a just and beautiful thing that Reiki is spreading across our globe in such a massive wave.

Here are a few things to look for when choosing a Reiki Master:

Usui Reiki attunements are beautiful rituals that have been passed down through specific teachings from Dr. Usui, through the lineage in painstaking accuracy. These rituals should never be taken away from, or altered.

Usui Reiki is NEVER taught multiple levels at a time.

It would not only be incorrect as a Usui practice, but also unkind, to truly attune one to Reiki One and Two, or Two and Three at the same time. Each true attunement is followed by a cleanse and taking two energy level cleanses on at one time would be overwhelming to a person's body. No true Reiki Master would attempt this practice.

Reiki attunements must be done in person and are energy and time intensive rituals.

I do not know a Reiki Master that has enough stamina, myself included, to attune more than (4) Level one recipients per day. If you are in a room of with 20 people for a Reiki One or Two attunement, you are probably not being attuned correctly according to Dr. Usui.

Your Reiki is a god-given ability that you already possess. The role of a Reiki Master is to assist you in remembering your abilities. Although Reiki is of the light of God, everything is attracted to the light, protection while performing Reiki is of the utmost importance.

Reiki and alcohol should never, never be used in the same body at the same time, this goes for recipients and practitioners.

What is Reiki?

(The following is reprinted courtesy of MarVeena Wells.)

Rei-Ki is a Japanese word for Universal - Life Force. A Reiki practitioner is a channel for this Holy energy.

There are many words to describe life force energy: Ki, Chi, Prana, Holy Spirit, Holy Breath, Mana, Ruach, Orgone and Magnetism. These words describe the Divine God essence that flows through all living things, people, animals, plants, and minerals. If it is alive, Godsource energy flows through it.

It is believed that The Masters Jesus and Buddha were both Reiki Masters and utilized the symbols in Reiki to heal. Everyone has the ability to channel Reiki, it is part of our birthright and ingrained in our DNA structure. We all have the circuitry and wiring for this energy. The attunement merely opens these paths.

I have consciously been working with Master Jesus for three years. The attunements and classes I give are led by him in spirit. I am merely the vessel, it is the Christed energy that passes the Sacred attunements and channels the material in the classes.

There are other Masters in spirit who share information during my classes from time to time. I have another Reiki Spirit guide whose name is Master Le Chang. He mastered the Reiki energy thousands of years ago in the East. By the law of attraction we are working together to empower others with Reiki.

The attunement is an Initiation and an awakening. It is a ceremony of heart. The attunement requires a combination of intent and desire to heal by the students. Once this combination is in place it is acknowledged by the Reiki Masters in spirit. Using the physical Reiki Master as a channel, the Reiki Masters in spirit awaken all layers of the physical and etheric bodies of the initiate. They set in motion the energetic awakening in all layers of the bodies for the new healer through the Reiki Master in the physical. This is truly a mystical event.

Reiki is traditionally divided into three parts or Degrees. The First Degree attunement is helpful in healing physical level disease in the person who receives it. Your physical health will often change for the better in the months following the initiation. In the First Degree class you will learn hand placement positions to channel Reiki to both yourself and others who are physically present.

There are many things taught in Reiki Level One that are important in healing ourselves, among them are the Five Reiki Principals for living. These are powerful methods for releasing the past. Combined with Reiki these Five Reiki Principals help in breaking up stagnant thought forms that have crystallized in our auras. Reiki then helps to move these negative thought forms out of our energy field and transmutes the negative energy. This cleared energy field is now in a position to receive more pure positive energy from the God Source, paving the way for more vibrant health.

The Reiki Principals are:

Just for today I will give thanks for my many blessings.
Just for today I will not be angry.
Just for today I will not worry.
Just for today I will do my work honestly.
Just for today I will be kind to every living thing.

In my Reiki One class you will receive information regarding Reiki and healing. This information is channeled by my Reiki Masters in spirit. You will also receive a manual outlining the hand positions, the twenty-one day cleanse and other relevant information.

The Second Degree is particularly exciting because you will learn knowledge and the proper use of the Reiki symbols. This will dramatically increase your ability to channel Reiki. This attunement will multiply the Reiki energy ten times as much as the First Degree. This Reiki Two attunement clears a path for a higher frequency to flow through. You will be able to give a complete session in less time because you are moving more energy and the body you are working on can be brought into balance faster.

The long distance symbol is included in the Reiki Two class. I call it the magic carpet symbol. You can use this symbol to send healing Reiki to anyone at any time or place. It has no boundaries and transcends space and time. This long distance symbol can penetrate dimensions and heal past, present and future. Time and space do not exist in spirit and we are all connected through God's love. You are taught the importance of honoring the Free Will of individuals you are channeling the Reiki energy to. Being able to send Reiki long distance is one of the wonders of Reiki. It empowers us to do something for our loved ones in times of crisis when we can't be there in person. We can also send healing on a global level to war torn areas or natural disasters. It feels good to be able to offer this loving energy in times of need.

One of the side effects of the attunements is an increased ability of our psychic senses. We are often able to see more with our third eye and hear more with our psychic hearing. All of our psychic senses will be enhanced. This helps us in our sessions to connect with our client and offer insight to that person for their own personal awakening.

The Third Degree Level has been compared to The Masonic Thirty Third Degree. This attunement multiplies the energy you channel ten times as much as the Second Degree attunement and fully aligns you with the Reiki Ray. The Reiki Ray is the Fifth Ray of Truth. It is called the Emerald Ray. Many people will see this color while in Reiki sessions. It works to open our heart to unconditional love. Energy is just energy until it is transmuted through the heart of unconditional love. Then it can be healing energy. You are taught the Master Symbols in this level. These Master symbols will help you to heal on the spirit level as well as allowing you to pass along the attunements. All of these Master symbols are keys to healing mysteries and you will receive more esoteric information regarding their uses. You may receive the Third Degree level attunement even if you do not wish to teach.

If you want to teach, I offer Master level training. You will participate in my classes as a student teacher. You will learn the secrets of passing the attunements. You will also be taught how to harmonize yourself with the essence of Reiki's unconditional love so you may channel information from Spirit Reiki Masters if you so choose.

One of the really wonderful things about Reiki is you do not need anything but yourself and your intention. No little black bag, no herbs to boil, and no elixirs to swallow. After receiving the Reiki attunements your hands become like the jumper cables of God.

Reiki enhances other healing modalities you may be using.

If you are ready to move to a higher level of healing work and want to accelerate your spiritual growth The Reiki Way may be for you.
