Reiki Level 1 - Awaken To The Gifts Of Reiki

Reiki level 1 is the start of a beautiful relationship – a relationship that will only ever guide you, support you and continue to invite you to go deeper.

Reiki is one of the most empowering things you’ll ever learn for yourself. You’ll always have something on hand to support you through life. Calm your mind, nourish your body and uplift your spirit.

Reiki is simple to learn but it is an amazingly powerful healing technique for calming and re-vitalising your mind, body and spirit, for relieving stress and pain, for increasing your well-being and for bringing deeper insight, healing and balance to yourself, your family and friends. You will learn how to transform your own energy for self-healing and growth.

Experience the true magic of receiving a reiki level 1 reju (initiation / attunement / blessing). Receiving a reiki attunement is a gift as it invites you to come into harmony with yourself as it unlocks your innate power to heal yourself. The word attunement means being or bringing into harmony, feeling of being at ‘one’ and initiation means ‘an occasion when someone is first introduced to an activity or skill’. So the Reiki attunement / initiation is an opportunity for us to begin afresh.

Reiki Level 1 is an invitation to come back into touch with the true essence of who you are

Reiki is ever-present in our bodies. This means anyone can harness this profound inbuilt intelligent energy for healing. When we are tuned into the energy by a Reiki Master, we are able to harness Reiki to heal ourselves and others. This gift of healing remains with us for the rest of our lives.

Experience the feeling of your true self beneath all the ‘stuff’ in our lives – feel peace, calm, compassion, silence, stillness and happiness come from within through reiki.

Learn to embody the Reiki Precepts in your daily life so you experience less worry, less anger, more gratitude and more compassion for yourself and others. Have your own personal experience of Reiki and be open to receiving the healing that is here for you in a supported and safe space.

After reiki level 1 you’ll have the ability to give yourself a Reiki session every day, contributing to your own healing. You’ll also be able to use Reiki to treat family & friends and pets.

How does Reiki Work?

One of the basic teachings of healing with Reiki is that we are more than our physical bodies. We also have an energy body made up of our aura (energy fields), the chakras (energy centers) and the meridians (energy pathways.) Like our physical body that takes in food to nourish it and give it energy, our energy body does the same. The energy fields take energy in, the chakras break it down, and the meridians distribute it throughout the body.

Our body is comprised of energy vibrating at different speeds. Our physical body, our thoughts, emotions, and our spiritual center, all vibrate at a particular frequency or speed. These varying vibrations or pulsations create a field around them which are often referred to as our aura or energy field. The aura is an information center and a highly perceptual system that transmits and receives messages from the external and internal environment.

Each energy layer appears different and has its own individual function. Yet, they continuously interpenetrate each other as well as the physical body. These fields can be felt through touch. It is what we perceive or sense when we scan with our hands.

Reiki is channeled through the hands. When you place your hands on your own body, or the body of another person for the purpose of healing you connect with the universal life force. The wisdom of Reiki then goes to work to bring about healing, balance and whatever is needed on a holistic level.

A full Reiki treatment reopens the chakras and re-balances the flow of the universal life force around the body. This will stimulate the body’s immune system and natural healing abilities.

Many cultures have developed techniques and disciplines that stimulate the flow of KI energy around the body. However, Reiki is the easiest to learn and administer. The techniques are simple to master. The results are profound.

What is Involved for Each Reiki Attunement?

In a reiki level 1 attunement, students are attuned to three different symbols, each representing a different aspect of reiki energy: power, mental/emotional balance and distance healing. Each student receives attunements to these 3 symbols four separate times, and with each repetition the connection deepens.

The attunements for reiki level 2 and reiki master are similar in nature, but involve different symbols, each with a different significance to opening your energetic pathways.

What Does It Feel Like to Get an Attunement?

Receiving a reiki attunement is a powerful spiritual experience, as your energetic pathways are opened by a reiki master. This energetic opening allows the reiki energy to flow freely through your body to impact your health and the health of others.

The feeling of a reiki attunement is a personal one, but students often report that they feel a lightening of their body and tingling from their head to their toes as the reiki energy pathways are opened.

The opening of an attunement has the effect of enhancing other energetic healing and channelling pathways, and students report that receiving an attunement causes increased intuitive awareness, and enhances any innate psychic sensitivity. An attunement activates the symbols needed to do Reiki.

What are the benefits in learning Reiki?

The one great benefit of Reiki Level 1 is that it teaches you how to heal yourself, creating balance between your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels. Without healing yourself first, you really shouldn't attempt to heal others, although many still do. But if you think about it, I'm sure that you will agree that it is very important to clear your own mental clutter or emotional baggage before trying to help or heal others. Why would you want to complicate or upset your own delicate state with other people's problems until you are mentally, emotionally or physically strong enough to assimilate any additional pressure?

So in order to allow Reiki Level 1 to benefit you significantly, be vigilant about establishing a daily routine in which you practice on yourself, whether you are feeling healthy or not. This will give you training for doing hand placements, which will in turn boost your confidence level. After awhile, you won't have to think about what the next step is or dither about whether you are doing it right or wrong for it will become a natural habit.

It will also cleanse, balance and harmonize the energies within your four bodies (or levels) by eliminating energy blockages, impurities or toxins to allow energy to flow freely throughout your system.

As well, it will enhance and strengthen your soul's connection to the universal life-force or to the spiritual level. A natural occurrence that comes with daily practice is that you may start to receive messages, inspirations or see visions and this just confirms that your connection to the universal life-force is indeed intensifying.

Other great benefits include:

  • The most beautiful thing is it helps you in being more of ‘you’ i.e. you feel more like yourself.
  • An empowering way to take care of yourself, enabling you to connect with your inner wisdom and find true health.
  • Supports you to become more grounded and centered so you can learn to ride the ‘waves’ of life in a different way and trust life.
  • If you are sensitive person (empathetic) reiki can support you in managing your own energy levels rather than feeling drained, ‘like a sponge’ or overwhelmed by all that is going on within them and in their outer world. It’s like a salve for your sensitive nervous system!
  • Your daily self practice helps to feel calmer, more aligned, balanced, connected and practice self love. Reiki meets you exactly where you are at, and opens the doorway to the support you most need at that time.
  • You’ll have this healing practice for the rest of your life and Reiki can become a significant source of inner support in your daily life. The magic is the more you use it, the stronger it is – just like any muscle you exercise!
  • Supports you to be more present and therefore let go of worries and invites in calmness and peace.
  • Can help you to develop more compassion to yourself and others as you open your heart to the world around you
  • Guides you to recognize fear for what it is, listen to it’s wisdom and your inner guidance so you can move through it with strength.
  • Everyone is intuitive; reiki helps you to awaken and strengthen your own intuition so you can make decisions and choices that are more aligned with your truth, your life and your purpose.
  • Helps you to sleep better and feel more at peace.

And more!
