When you receive an attunement, the Master opens your chakras and makes you capable of receiving energy from the universe all by yourself, so that you do not have to depend on anyone else for your energy needs.
How is Reiki Treatment done?
The person receiving Reiki treatment remains fully clothed. The recipient can lay or sit on a chair whichever is most comfortable. The only participation required on the recipient’s part is a desire to let one relax and be open to the Reiki healing energy.
The Reiki session usually lasts between 45 minutes to an hour. The practitioner places his/her hands above or near the recipient’s body. There are twelve basic hand positions. The hand positions may vary depending on the recipient’s needs.
The experience during the session varies from person to person. The recipient may experience heat or tingling or pulsing sensations as the healing Reiki energy radiates from the therapist’s hands.
The therapist is not the healer the energy is. The energy works on all levels(mind, body & soul) to heal the recipient as the energy knows where it is required.
What is Distance Reiki?
The Reiki energy travels through time and distance thus Reiki can be practiced at a distance without having the practitioner’s hand on the recipient. Reiki Distance healing can used when the recipient cannot be visited or for people far away. The Reiki energy will go to them and treat them. You can also send Reiki energy for crisis situations also.
