Can you self treat with Reiki?
Yes, you can self-treat with Reiki. Also when you treat others you are
receiving as well.
Is the flow of Reiki the same in both hands?
Reiki energy is the same in both hands as it is universal energy and
there is no giving and receiving hand as in other forms of energy work.
Are there any harmful side effects?
Some people report a time period after receiving a Reiki session or
attunement that they are detoxing their bodies and sometimes get a little
sick or feel less energetic, but I believe that is the body releasing the
negative energies and not the actual Reiki making one sick.
What is the 21 day detox?
The 21 day detox begins after one receives an attunement. Some go
through a period of detoxing and some do not, so it is not always what
happens but in some cases it does. The detoxing can include anything
from feeling more energetic to completely changing your life style,
depending on what your body needs I believe the detox will do what is
needed for the individual.
Can you heal a specific problem with reiki?
You can heal anything with Reiki! From physical pain to emotional Reiki
can help heal. If the person being healed truly wants healing and is ready
for it, I believe anything is possible. Not to say Reiki will heal everything,
but in many cases it does. It is up to the individual.
What is the difference between an attunement and reiki session?
An attunement connects you to the Reiki energy and allows you to
access it once complete. A Reiki session is when an Reiki practitioner
performs Reiki on someone or something to assist them with healing.
How long does a Reiki session last?
Some Reiki sessions can last 10 minutes, some can last 2 hours.
Depending on the type of Reiki energy that one uses and the amount of
energy that is needed by the recipient the times can vary. Typically a full
Usui Reiki session from me is anywhere from 45-70 minutes long.
Should I learn Reiki or just receive it?
I believe that everyone should learn Reiki, from a teachers standpoint I
believe that learning reiki and incorporating it into ones life will bring
about profound results. So if your new and curious I would say start off
with a session and if you enjoy it, LEARN it!
Who can benefit from Reiki?
EVERYONE. EVERYTHING! People, the world, animals, plants,
computers, cars, houses, boats, oceans, desks, literally everything can
benefit from Reiki. If you believe the world is made up of energy then the
world can benefit from reiki.
What does Reiki feel like?
Reiki feels differently to everyone, some feel nothing and some feel, hot,
cold, tingles, prickly energy, and more. I believe depending on the energy
that is needed one can feel many different sensations. What I think is
most important to know is, that whatever it is you do or don't feel is
exactly perfect for the situation.
Will a Reiki practitioner even run out of Reiki energy?
No, since the Reiki practitioner is using the Universal Life-Force Energy,
it will never run out! When you are giving a Reiki treatment to someone,
you are giving of your time and your intent to assist, but you are not
giving away any of your own energy. Reiki is in infinite supply. It never
What are the hand positions?
Hand positions are places that a Reiki practitioner will place his or her
hands to allow the reiki to flow to certain areas of the body. In some
forms of Reiki the hand positions are not important, in other forms of
Reiki they are very important.
What is Reiki called "smart energy"?
Reiki is an intelligent energy because it knows which areas of the body
most need healing and will automatically flow to specific areas where
suffering or imbalance are prevalent.
Reiki & Healing Attunements
Each form of "Reiki" or "Healing Modality" requires an attunement process to take place. What actually takes place during each attunement process and how long this process will last for greatly depending on what you choose to be attuned too. Generally speaking However, an attunement will take around 15 to 30 minutes to complete.
All attunements can be completed either via "Hands On" or "Remote / Distance" methods.
What's the Difference I hear you ask?
Well "Hands On" is where both the person being attuned and the person attuning are physically in the same place.
Where as "Remote / Distance" Methods do not require the person being attuned and the person performing the attunement to be in the same place,
Does a Remote / Distance Attunement Really work?
Yes it most definitely does! In fact it is just as wonderful and powerful as a hands on attunement, yet often far more practical. There is absolutely NO difference in the results of the attunement process, yet by being able to send attunements via Remote / Distance methods we are able to more easily share this wonderful energy with many different people from all walks of life around the world, which is our aim! ~ To link Healing around the World.
So are there any side affects from an attunement?
Yes there can be side affects after a reiki attunement. However this is referred to as a cleansing period.
During this time each person will experience their own unique reaction to the cleansing period. NO two attunements are ever the same. Depending on which form of Reiki of Healing Modality you choose to be attuned to, depends on how long this Cleansing period may last for, generally they vary from 7 days to 21 days in length.
Reiki only works for the good of all, so during the cleansing period you may undergo a detox, that can often bring about changes in your life. The Reiki attunement can start a cleansing process that effects 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 thoughts that are no longer useful. A process of purification prior to attunement is recommended to improve the benefits one receives.
Many people report experiencing some of the following things:
Opening of the third eye
An increase in intuitive awareness
Other psychic abilities.
A release of Negative Emotions
Changes in food preferences
Once you have a Reiki attunement you will have Reiki for life it does not wear off and you can never loose it.
