Today I wanted to talk about attunements in Reiki, and why they are so important. I’ve seen the adverts in my social media feeds where you can become a Reiki master, in ONE weekend, for as little as $49. What?? Start a new career as a Reiki Master for less than $50? Heck yeah!! Seems too good to be true? Well, because it kinda is. I love that people are becoming more aware of our own, natural, ability to heal, and that there is this huge shift of energy happening where we realize that we don’t need to be dependent on pharmaceuticals to help us feel better. I also understand that finances may be tight, and that a step in any direction towards what you want to do, is better than staying where you are. So that’s why I want to bring up how important the actual attunements are, from a REAL Reiki Master. If you are honest, really honest with yourself, and you truly want to help others, you will understand that the attunement process is important when it comes to actual energy healing.
So, what does the word Attunement even mean? Attunement:
How could you possibly get that through a CD, Webinar or book? I remember when I received my initial Reiki attunement several years ago, that it was a very sacred process, it felt special, and you could actually feel the passing of the energy. Only a trained Reiki Master is able to give the attunement, and this is to accomplish two things. One is a very intense healing on the person receiving it, and it goes deep down into the energy channels, by opening and clearing them. This is so a rapid healing can begin for the newly attuned practitioner. When these channels are opened and cleared, it allows for greater healing to happen, and the Reiki energy can flow more freely through them. When you are attuned, you are then able to freely receive Reiki at all times, and this allows the practitioner to transmit that, and have it flow more easily through them to help a client heal.
As a practitioner, and someone who is just generally interested in the Energy Healing, (obviously) I have seen many reactions to the process of receiving an initiation. In varying degrees each person has been touched in some special way by Spirit. Initiations are a part of the process of that reconnection to Spirit and a beginning of a new or renewed walk down the path of life. I still, very vividly, as I mentioned above, remember my first attunement to Reiki, and all the feelings I had during the special time. If you are thinking about taking a Reiki class, then know that the healing energies that you were born with will only expand as Reiki begins to flow through your mind, body, soul, and spirit.
Lots of Love,
