What is Reiki?

We all have Reiki energy (Universal Life Force Energy). What makes Reiki different from other healing methods, is the attunement (also known as the initiation) process, which the student experiences in the various levels of Reiki classes. Anyone can lay their hands on another person and help accelerate the healing process by transferring magnetic energy. A person who has been through the process of Reiki attunements however, has experienced a very ancient system for fine tuning the physical and etheric bodies to a higher vibratory level. In addition, certain of the energy centres, also known as chakras, are opened to enable the person to channel and vibrate higher amounts of Universal Life Force Energy.

The Benefits

No specific claims are made as to the effects of Reiki on each individual, but these are some of the reported effects:-

  • Dramatically reduces stress and tension
  • To support the body’s natural ability to heal itself
  • Cleanses the body of toxins
  • Increases energy and vitality
  • Reduces pain and the side effects of drugs
  • Effectively treats sports injuries, burns, cuts, bruises, stings, headaches, emotional disorders and other acute and chronic health problems
  • What is a Reiki Treatment?

    The recipient lies on a treatment couch, remaining fully clothed and covered by a blanket. They may talk or listen to music. The healer transmits Reiki energy to the Client, through gentle touch or just over the body’s energy field or areas of pain energy that creates feelings of well being, balance and harmony.

    The lengths of time for a persons improvement vary depending on the causes of their imbalance. Many people experience and feel heat, or cold, tummy rumblings or tingling sensations in parts of their body during a treatment. Although there are others who do not feel anything.

    The evidence to date shows very clearly that there is indeed a plasmatic streaming- a release of energy through the bodily system- when blocks are released.

    All outcomes are different for every treatment, the heal being the determining factor in the net result. Each person draws in just the right amount of life force that he or she needs to release, activate, or transform the energy of the physical and etheric bodies. Reiki not only can effect change in the chemical structure of the body, by helping to regenerate organs and rebuild tissue and bone; it also helps create balance on the mental level. Reiki is not a belief system, therefore no mental preparation or direction is needed to receive a treatment, only a desire to receive and accept the energy.

  • Self Treatment

    One of the greatest benefits of Reiki is the possibility of self-treatment. Once a person is attuned, he or she need only have the intention to do Reiki on him/herself or others and the energy is immediately drawn through.

    Self-treatment is an extremely effective technique for total relaxation and stress release. It amplifies the life force energy in our body, which then helps create balance in the physical and etheric bodies. Treating oneself also helps to release withheld emotions and energy blocks.

 is the Japanese word for Universal Life Force Energy. When the ‘Rei’ and ‘Ki’ are broken down into their two component parts, the Kanji (Japanese alphabet) definition for Rei is universal, transcendental spirit, mysterious power, and essence. Ki is described as the vital life force energy, very similar to the Chi of Chinese acupuncture, Light to Christians, and Bioplasmic Energy to Russian researchers.

Reiki is a wonderful tool to help one develop conscious awareness, the very key to enlightenment. As in most things in life, Reiki must be experienced to be appreciated. May your exploration of Reiki be a joyous one!

“Just for today, do not worry.
Just for today, do not anger.
Honour your parents, teachers and elders.
Earn your living honestly.
Show gratitude to everything.”

Can I be a Reiki Healer?

Attunements are the very core of the Usui method of natural healing. Reiki is the Japanese word for Universal Life Force Energy, something which we all have as our birthright. Anyone can lay hands on another person and transmit magnetic life force energy. What makes Usui’s system unique is the attunement process, which may be described as a series of initiations wherein a Reiki Master, using a very ancient Tibetan system, transmits energy to the student in an amplified state. The energy acts is such a way that it creates an open channel for cosmic energy to flow in from the top of the student’s head, through the upper energy centres and out through the hands, for use in future treatments. In addition, the vibratory rate of the body is amplified, triggering a 21 day cleansing period, which occurs as a result of negative patterns and blocks being sloughed off due to the quickening of a person’s energy pattern.


Reiki I

First Degree attunements are focused mainly on opening up the physical body so that it can that accept (channel) greater quantities of life force energy. The four attunements of First Degree raise the vibratory rate of the four energy centres of the upper part of the body, which are also known as Chakras. The first initiation chakra on the etheric level. The second attunement affects the thyroid gland, and on an etheric level, helps to open up the throat chakra, which is our communication centre. The third initiation affects both the third eye, which corresponds to the pituitary gland ( our centre of higher consciousness and intuition), and the hypothalamus, which affects the body’s mood and temperature. The fourth initiation further opens the crown chakra, our connecting link with spiritual consciousness, and it’s corresponding physical partner, the pineal gland. This final attunement completes the process by sealing the channel the Reiki energy for the rest of your life. Thus it is essential to complete all four attunements to keep the Reiki channel open throughout your entire lifetime. Once you are attuned to the Reiki energy, you can never lose it. Even if you don’t use it for a period of years, the moment you decide to use it, it will be there for you.

On Completion of Reiki I you are able to heal yourself, family and friends.

Reiki II

The Second Degree attunement process provides a “quantum leap” in vibratory level, at least four times greater than First Degree. The three symbols which are taught in Second Degree, to be used for sending absentee healings, also become activated at this point. Second Degree has great emphasis on adjusting the etheric body, rather than the physical body, which is the primary focus of First Degree In addition, the third eye or sixth chakra is greatly affected, which often heightens the intuitive abilities of the student. Soon after the Second Degree attunements, and especially during the 21 day cleanse process, people often feel a considerable amount of energy in their root chakras, because their survival and sexual centres become very stimulated, which amplifies what Hindus call Kundalini energy.

As Reiki II is Practioner level, once you have acquired professional insurance you can offer Reiki to the general public.


Reiki Master and Teacher

The Third Degree attunement is used to initiate a Master. This attunement again amplifies the vibratory level and activates the Master symbol so it may be used to help others empower themselves. This is an important point, because it is essential for people to realize that it is their choice to receive an attunement. A Reiki master is simply someone who has chosen to accept greater responsibility for their life by acknowledging that he or she is indeed the Master of his or her destiny. By accepting this responsibility, the Reiki master is empowered to use specific an ancient Tibetan system to help others further empower themselves. The attunement process of Reiki is really exceptional in that it enables you to get a sense of your true essence. Reiki provides the boost to help experience that sense of awareness, and with a daily practice of self-treatments, that awareness can continue to grow.

On completion you can then teach others the Usui Reiki method of healing.

On completion of each level, you will be
given a course manual and awarded a certificate .

The attunements are very precise and can only be transmitted by a Reiki Master who has been trained in Dr. Usui’s method.

When you decide to complete the Reiki attunement process, you can look forward to an amplification of your conscious awareness, and a cleansing period to release old patterns.

When you begin the attunement process, you take a positive step toward acknowledging your own mastership
