Reiki is not taught the same way other healing techniques are taught. It is transferred to the student by the Reiki Master during an attunement process. This process opens the crown, heart, and palm chakras and creates a special link between the student and the Reiki energy.
The Reiki attunement is a powerful spiritual experience. The attunement is also called ‘energy transmission’ and is the way Reiki is passed from master to student. This happens during a sacred ceremony which is a vital part of a Reiki training. The way it is experienced is different for each student. For example may students feel a stronger energy flow in the body, which often manifests itself as a pleasant wave-like flow and expansive feeling of warmth. Others see a bright light or a variety of vivid colors in their third eye chakra. Some people have personal insight or visions and a space of peace, silence and meditation opens up. For many, the senses such as smell, hearing , sight and touch are enhanced. Whatever you experience (even if very little) is normal and, regardless of what you experience, your ‘inner healing channel’ is opened and you are attuned to the Reiki energy. Once you are attuned you cannot lose this ability. It does not wear off and you can never lose it. While one attunement is all you need for each level to be attuned to that level, additional attunements bring benefit. Experimentation has found that additional attunements of the same level add to the value of that level. These benefits include refinement of the Reiki energy one is channeling, increased strength of the energy, healing of personal problems, clarity of mind, increased psychic sensitivity, and a raised level of consciousness.
The Reiki attunement can start a cleansing process that affects the physical body as well as the mind and emotions. Toxins that have been stored in the body may be released along with feelings and thought patterns that are no longer useful. Therefore, a process of purification prior to the attunement is recommended to improve the benefit one receives.
For someone who has already done energy work such as Yoga, Tai Chi, massage, and/or mediates regularly, their energy bodies may already be attuned to higher energetic vibrations. They are able to absorb more Reiki energy and can channel more energy right from the start.
New to Reiki
For people to whom energy or spiritual work is new, they will still be able to channel Reiki (after attunement), but initially the sensations may be smaller. However, after a few weeks of practice (usually 6-8 weeks) they will experience the full flow of Reiki energy. At the beginning of your training it is important to practice as often as possible. The more you use Reiki energy, the better it flows.
Reiki Classes with Krishna are kept small to preserve an intimate setting. Your investment includes a reiki manual and certification. Students that are trained with Krishna will have opportunities to practice in group healing circles.
