Reiki is a great starting point to developing your spiritual abilities. Traditional Japanese Usui Reiki teaches focus, energy reading, healing symbols, and grounding techniques. There is a large emphasis on self-healing first before healing other people. It is important to also create a daily meditation and rebalancing practice in order to awaken your spiritual potential. These Reiki classes are taught both in the traditional Japanese and modern way. Modern Reiki combines a bit of talking and discussion during the session. This Reiki requires both the practitioner and the client to work together for healing. Traditional Usui Reiki is a silent practice. Chakra balancing using crystals is also taught in level 1.
Reiki Level 1
Reiki classes start with level 1 which is a introduction to Reiki. This course is designed to teach you the fundamentals of grounding, receiving, and transmitting Reiki energy. You will learn techniques to open yourself up to Reiki energy, Learn self-Reiki, and the first two Reiki symbols. What makes Reiki unique from other energy therapies is the energetic initiation performed by the Instructor. This initiation for Reiki level 1 is called a “Reiki attunement.” Attunements are designed to energetically align your body/mind/spirit to maintain a clear channel to be a proper channel for Reiki.
The Level 1 Reiki class is setup to be a fun class because you will learn how to “see” energy and feel it. This awareness begins very gently, but progresses to the level where you can will the energy to move. There is partner work and practice with the instructor. Everyone receives a Reiki treatment in this class.
Reiki Level 2
Reiki level 2 takes your practice to the next level of awareness and development. This course is a short review and refresher of the fundamentals learned in Reiki 1, and then goes into new techniques including distance healing and more in-depth self healing. This Reiki instruction will further your connection with Reiki energy, and help release negative feelings regarding people from your past and/or present. This course is probably the most fun to teach because there is a noticeable acceleration in the learning curve of the students. The symbols learned are more complex, and there is a hands-on partner practice similar to reiki Level 1.
This class has a much larger amount of information provided, so expect the class to be taught at a faster pace. This class will have many new facets of knowledge.
Reiki Master training is the highest level of Usui Reiki. This course is designed to teach the most advanced Reiki symbols and experience an Master Reiki attunement. A portion of this course is dedicated to teaching Reiki and how to perform attunements. Reiki Master is certainly a calling for people who would like to teach. Most people are satisfied with completing Reiki Level 2 and starting a practice.
