I have been attuned and trained in Reiki levels 1 and 2. The attunement isn't to the the person who attunes you, it is to a universal life energy and
teaches you how to channel the energy without having to use your own energy during a treatment. The energy does work over distance and even time as
well so you can Reiki an event in the future or in the past if it needs to be addressed.
You want to be careful who you learn Reiki from and typically Reiki 1 and 2 should take a weekend each, and some mastership programs take about a
year. Research people in your area and see who they learned Reiki from, most can trace thier lineage back to Hawayo Takata, a Hawaiian woman who
brought Reiki into the western world, then back to Dr. Usui.
If you are in the New England area I would suggest to look into training from John Harvey Gray, based out of New Hampshire. He is a Reiki master
trained directly from Takata. The attunements can be very diverse from person to person and can cause interesting dreams or different feelings of
Best wishes for your session.
not entirely true. during a reiki attunement the reiki master will put "data" into you so that you can use certain energies. people who recieved
reiki think that they are the ones healing etc, but they're not entirely. you're third eye will open and you will become more aware of what is going
on. but don't even think that you suddenly know all after becoming reiki master yourself
hmm...how to explain this. you're allowed to make a request to perform healing. you are NOT directly connected to the pool of reiki energy. there are
guardians between you and the pool. you make a request and they channel/form bridges and deliver the energy for you to use. simply because you don't
know how to handle/channel etc etc etc and many more reasons i wont mention here.
in the end. yes you can still heal minor wounds and increase the healing rates of such wounds. you will become more sensitive and aware of your
surroundings. it is a good way to get started, but it's not the final station of personal development when it comes to both spirituality and
reiki does not take weekend courses. those courses are just ment so that you can spend time, in a more focussed environment, on it. you can do the
very same attunement in less then 2 hours at home if you know someone who is a reiki master in your family. a lot of what reiki teaches is also bull,
such as not being allowed to show the symbols to outsiders. you can show it to everyone, just tell them that just because they know the symbols
doesn't mean they know reiki. i went from reiki 1 to 2 in less then a 3 weeks and each attunement took less then 2 hours. also best directions to
choose are either Terra Mai, Seichem, Shambala and 1 other which i forgot.
you're right though, be carefull who you choose as master and attuner. a lot are people who make you do useless stuff and pay a lot. just keep
everything, including life and in the astral planes and working with energy as simple as possible.
after the attunements your "guardians" will spend a lot less time to shield and protect you. so be sure to learn to be "grounded to the earth" as
well as putting up shields so that entities won't start eating your energy.
