What is Reiki?   

Reiki, It's origins 

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and health.

The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy."

A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many have reported miraculous results.

Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.

While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion and so can work with all beliefs, religions and cultures.

You may feel the Reiki energy whilst receiving a massage from me as I use it constantly to help my treatment and to keep my energy levels up. But for those that want to relax and recharge without having to get undressed or use oils, Reiki is an excellent choice.

Can Anyone Learn Reiki?

The ability to learn Reiki is not dependent on intellectual capacity, nor does one have to be able to meditate. It does not take years of practice. It is simply passed on from the teacher to the student. As soon as this happens, one has and can do Reiki. Because of this, it is easily learned by anyone.

Reiki is a pure form of healing not dependent on individual talent or acquired ability. Because of this, the personality of the healer is less likely to cloud the significance of the experience. The feeling of being connected directly to God's healing love and protection is clearly apparent.

The Attunement

Reiki is not taught in the way other healing techniques are taught. It is transferred to the student by the Reiki Master during an attunement process. This process opens the crown, heart, and palm chakras and creates a special link between the student and the Reiki source.

The Reiki attunement is a powerful spiritual experience. The attunement energies are channeled into the student through the Reiki Master. The process is guided by the Rei or God-consciousness and makes adjustments in the process depending on the needs of each student. The attunement is also attended by Reiki guides and other spiritual beings who help implement the process.

Many report having mystical experiences involving personal messages, healings, visions, and past life experiences.

The attunement can also increase psychic sensitivity. Students often report experiences involving: opening of the third eye, increased intuitive awareness, and other psychic abilities after receiving a Reiki attunement.

Once you have received a Reiki attunement, you will have Reiki for the remainder of your life. It does not wear off and you can never lose it. While one attunement is all you need for each level to be attuned to that level, additional attunements bring benefit. Experimentation has found that additional attunements of the same level add to the value of that level. These benefits include refinement of the Reiki energy one is channeling, increased strength of the energy, healing of personal problems, clarity of mind, increased psychic sensitivity, and a raised level of consciousness. additional attunements are usually given by someone who has taken Third degree Reiki, with no extra fee required.

The Reiki attunement can start a cleansing process that affects the physical body as well as the mind and emotions. Toxins that have been stored in the body may be released along with feelings and thought patterns that are no longer useful. Therefore, a process of purification prior to the attunement is recommended to improve the benefit one receives. See below for specific instructions on preparing for an attunement.

Preparing for a Reiki attunement

Preparing for an Attunement


In order to improve the results you receive during the attunement, a process of purification is recommended. This will allow the attunement energies to work more efficiently and create greater benefits for you. The following steps are optional. Follow them if you feel guided to do so.

The following are recommendations to be followed if you can. I know it may not always be possible but try at least no alcohol and a vegetarian diet.


  •  Refrain from eating meat, fowl or fish for three days prior to the attunement. These foods often contain drugs in the form of penicillin and female hormones and toxins in the form of pesticides and heavy metals that make your system sluggish and throw it out of balance.

  • Consider a water or juice fast for one to three days especially if you already are a vegetarian or have experience with fasting.

  • Minimize your use of coffee and caffeine drinks or stop completely. They create imbalances in the nervous and endocrine systems. Use no caffeine drinks on the day of the attunement.

  • Use no alcohol for at least three days prior to the attunement.

  • Minimize or stop using sweets. Eat no chocolate.


  • If you smoke, cut back, and smoke as little as possible on the day of the attunement.

  • Meditate an hour a day for a least a week using a style you are familiar with or simply spend this time in silence.

  • Reduce or eliminate time watching TV, listening to the radio, and reading newspapers.

  • Go for quiet walks, spend time with nature, and get moderate exercise.

  • Give more attention to the subtle impressions and sensations within and around; contemplate their meaning.

  • Release all anger, fear, jealousy, hate, worry, etc. up to the light. Create a sacred space within and around you.

  • By receiving an attunement you will become part of a group of people who are using Reiki to heal themselves, and each other, and who are working together to heal the Earth. You will also be receiving help from Reiki guides and other spiritual beings who are also working towards these goals. While Reiki is not a religion, you may prepare your mind with intention work and pray in a religious mode comfortable to you to prepare to open to higher spiritual energies and experiences.

Following an Attunement

Following an attunement you will have a 21 day period to allow you to adjust to the Reiki energy. You will be shown how to apply Reiki to yourself and time each day should be allowed to do this. Its recommended to follow the pre attunement recommendations for these 21 days to get the best effect, but it may not always be possible. Try to avoid at least alcohol, stimulants.

Why not learn to treat yourself with level 1 and  and increase your energy levels and that of your surroundings, food and plants? Then you can progress to Level 2 where you can learn to treat others and heal pain and hurt from the past and send distance healing?
