What does Reiki Master mean?

Under the Usui system, one who has gone past the third stage of Reiki training is a Master. After the first two levels, the student becomes practitioner and can channel energy to others. However, he or she cannot attune or initiate others after completing the first and second degrees. For this, third degree is needed. On attunement to the third degree, a practitioner becomes Reiki Master or Teacher and can attune students. Master is one who has taken on the responsibility to heal others. He has opted for this path and made a promise or commitment. He can stay in his own energy and does not interfere with other’s energy fields.

What should I expect after Reiki attunement?
  1. Increased awareness for goal.
  2. You start thinking differently about you and life.
  3. Your behaviour regarding your environment, relationships and all other aspects of your life start changing and you begin to realize that we are part of a whole.
What Does a Treatment Consist of?

Under standard treatment, one places hands on or just above head, shoulders, stomach, knees or feet for 3-5 minutes. The treatment continues for 30 min to 60 min. The client lies fully clothed without shoes on the Reiki table although loose clothes are desirable as the client feels comfortable. The treatment consists of placing the hands on or just above positions around the head, shoulders, stomach, knees, feet or back. The healing relaxes and refreshes you by working on the physical, spiritual, emotional and mental levels.

Will I feel sensations during or after Reiki treatment?

Depends. Somebody may feel sensation while others do not. There may be feelings of heat, tingling, drowsiness or other such types. But if you do not experience a sensation, it does not mean that there is something wrong with the treatment or healing.

Can Reiki be used for ‘curing’ animals and plants?

Definitely. In fact, animals and plants respond very well to Reiki. They are also living energy fields like us and attract Reiki quickly, easily and effectively.

Should I have a medical background to learn Reiki?

Does attunement “wear off” or diminish with time?

Attunement is permanent. It does not wear off or dissipate with time. You can never lose it and it is a permanent change. You can use it all through your life.

How can one be attuned to Reiki?

Through attunement Reiki master passes energy to his or her disciple. He gives him or her, the ability to channelize Reiki energy. At this time, energy blocks are cleared to allow healthy and positive energy flow.

Will I be tired if I give a number of treatments a day?

Reiki symbols help us focus energy. They are charged and powered with the healer’s intention. The power is not in the symbol but in those which the symbol represents.

Is Reiki safe?

Reiki is only about healing through the universal life force and is completely safe. It does not harm anybody in anyway. Pregnant woman and children can also do it without any harm.

Is Reiki religion?

It is not. It is a very frequently asked question. Reiki is truly spiritual in nature and one does not have to have a particular belief or faith to practice it. There should only be an open mind fine tuned for receiving the energy and a wish to learn and heal all and yourself.

What Is Distance Healing?

It involves healing over distance or through thought. In this, the healer is not physically near the client. It can be over a country or continent away but he or she will receive the practitioner’s healing energy. It is done remotely and has no limits. It does not go by our conception of time and space. Using pictures, names or anything which strengthens the connection, healing is done through visualization and intention. When connection is there, it seems as if the healer and client are in touch in-person.

Do I need to stop medications that I’m currently undergoing to benefit from Reiki?

Not at all. You can do so only if asked by your medical practitioner after consulting. Reiki acts wonderfully in combination with other therapies such as Allopathy, Ayurveda, Homoeopathy, etc.

As a Reiki Practitioner, we do not diagnose. Nor do we cure because Reiki does its own work. We are only channels for allowing energy to flow through the client’s body. We never interfere with the medical treatments and medication. So we do not suggest that one discontinue medication when on Reiki as it is not an alternative to other treatments.

How Does Reiki Work?

Reiki is a natural healing therapy that is non-invasive and brings holistic healing. It balances and realigns the body energy centres and chakras by unblocking the ‘Chi’ energy in the body. Reiki has its own intelligence and it ‘knows’ where to go. It connects the healer to the source of spiritual energy. The practitioner or healer is nothing but a source or conduit of the healing energy. Through the energy, all of us are connected to the infinite pool or source of energy. So it can be sent to anybody in any part of the world. Reiki induces high level of relaxation and differences can be seen after the first two sessions of Reiki only.

What Can be Treated with Reiki?

Any physical, mental, spiritual, emotional problems can be treated with Reiki. It is a powerful yet gentle medium to treat every known health and other issues in human history like lack of self-esteem, lack of self-confidence, stress, anxiety, heart problems, skin problems, insomnia etc. It supports medical treatment wonderfully as a supplemental method. It should not be considered as an alternative to medial and behavioural health treatment.

Do I need to be religious or from some specific religion to learn Reiki?

No. It does not have anything to do with any religion or faith or belief system. There are no eligibilities other than willingness to learn Reiki. There should be a sincere intent to help yourself and others. It is about unconditional love, empathy and gratitude. Anyone can receive and give Reiki.

What is Holistic Health Care?

Holistic healing aims to bring one to the state of completeness or wholeness in body, mind, spirit, and emotions. It treats the person and not the disease and heals the root cause of pain rather than the outer or external symptoms or effects only.
