Reiki is a spiritual and physical healing practice devised by Dr Mikao Usui that helps individuals overcome health, both physical and mental, issues and enables them to produce stress management in their lives. Reiki has been used for healing since the end of the nineteenth century, but is still growing in popularity today. Listed below are the steps to take if you want to learn Reiki and become a Reiki Master.
There are three levels of Reiki that must be completed in order to become a Reiki Master. These are the First Degree level, the Second Degree level, and the Master Teacher, or Third Degree, level. Each level is explained below.
First Degree Reiki
In the First Degree level of Reiki, you’ll learn how Reiki works, Reiki’s historical background, and the different types of Reiki systems that exist today. You’ll also be initiated into Reiki and receive your first Reiki energy experience through Reiki Attunement.
Through Reiki Attunement, you’ll learn first-hand how to tune in to Reiki energy and use it for stress management and physical and emotional healing. In the traditional Reiki Workshop this initiation usually involves lying on your back or stomach while a Master or practitioner places his or her hands from your head to toes hop to approximate the traditional chakra locations. The energy flows through the Master’s hands into your body.
There is no need to receive your attunement face-to-face to become fully attuned. After all, there was nobody to attune Dr Mikao Usui: he attuned himself and you can too. Once you’ve experienced Reiki for yourself, you’ll start learning how to give others Reiki treatments.
Second Degree Reiki
In the Second Degree level of Reiki, you’ll expand on your initial experiences. You’ll learn about distance healing as well. Distance healing involves channelling Reiki energies to someone in another town or even another country! The energy vibration is different with this type of Reiki. It has a higher proportion of energy from the Source and a lower proportion of Chi than the First Degree level. Where the First Degree level promotes primarily physical healing, the Second Degree level promotes healing on a mental, spiritual and emotional level.
Master Teacher Reiki or Third Degree Level
In the Master Teacher, or Third Degree, level of Reiki, you’ll learn how to use Reiki symbols and what they mean. You’ll also learn how to use various methods of stress management such as healing drumming and crystal healing with crystals. You’ll become familiar with sacred mantras and how the different energies work so you can teach others. You’ll also be able to perform Reiki Attunements.
