What is Reiki?
Reiki, pronounced ray-key meaning ‘universal life energy’, is a Japanese system of healing. Reiki is a natural source of energy healing and promotes well-being by rebalancing your energy to create a deep sense of relaxation and peace. It is a profoundly powerful yet gentle healing tool which stimulates the body's natural healing capacity. It was developed in the early 20th century by a Japanese monk called Dr Mikao Usui.
How can Reiki help?
Reiki is great for managing stress and maintaining health. It is ideal for anyone in need of relaxation, rejuvenation and energetic refreshment. It is excellent for soothing pain and aids healing from injury or operation. Reiki can also help you gain a greater awareness of your own energy and support your self-development.
You too can learn to use Reiki, to enable you to give healing to yourself and others. Join the Reiki community and be part of a great lineage. I would encourage everyone to learn Reiki. Through an attunement process your energy is tuned to this natural healing energy to enable it to flow through your hands. The attunement is a set ritual performed by a Reiki Master which gives you the ability to access the Reiki energy.
The Reiki Lineage and Choice of Reiki Master
Anyone who is attuned to Reiki becomes part of a Reiki lineage which can be traced back to the Dr Mikao Usui. It is an unbroken line from Reiki Master to Reiki Master. My lineage is short and remains pure to what was taught by Dr Usui.
I believe you must take care when choosing a Reiki Master and choose one that you feel comfortable with. The Reiki lineage is important to ensure a high quality attunement and should have a direct link back to Dr Usui. Don't be afraid to ask to see the lineage. It is also recommended to have a Reiki treatment first.
Attunement Classes and the 3 Levels of Attunement
The attunements are held in Salisbury in small relaxed groups to ensure personal attention. Dates are arranged to suit all participants. I would require personal contact with you before the attunement to ensure we are both comfortable to proceed. It is recommended to receive a Reiki treatment from me before hand, and certainly if you have not experienced Reiki before you would require a Reiki treatment from me first.
Level One Attunement - 1 day
Level One attunement takes 1 day and is the first attunement level that anyone new to Reiki will experience. It is ideal for anyone and it will allow you to use Reiki on yourself, the perfect self-healing tool. It is also great for using with other people informally, such as friends, family, or as part of meditation. It establishes a direct and powerful connection with Reiki energy. It is also a great tool for self-development and you may find that your sensitivity to energy increases which can give you a greater sense of awareness and intuition. The day will include information on energy work; Reiki, it's history and use; the hand positions, the attunement itself; and the opportunity to practice on each other.
Level Two Attunement - 2 days
Level Two attunement takes 2 days and is for those who want to become a practitioner or to further your Reiki skill and use of personal energy. It also enables you to do distant or absent healing. Level One attunement has to be completed first with usually a minimum of 6 months between each attunement. The course will include a re-cap of Reiki and your experiences since the first attunement,; the practical information to enable you to become a practitioner; the attunement to deepen your use of Reiki; the Reiki symbols and their use; distance healing; and practicing on each other.
Level Three Master and Teacher Level Attunement - 2 days
Level Three attunement takes 1 day with the optional Teacher level an extra day. Level One and Two attunements has to be completed first with usually a minimum of 6 months between each attunement. Level Three attunement will deepen previous attunements, increase your proficiency and learn more Reiki symbols. The Teacher level will enable you to teach and attune others to all the Reiki levels. You can do the Master Level without the Teacher as it is only for those who would like to attune others. The Teacher level can be included at a later date.
21 Day Self Healing Period
After each attunement a 21 day self-healing period is required to solidify and deepen the attunement and I will support you through that process with any questions you may have. Please be aware that you are expected not to do Reiki on others during this process.
