    Have any of you been attuned for Reiki?

    Yes, yes I have been.. I sometimes wonder if one needs to be attuned at all, or if intent is all that you need.

    After all the first person to teach it was never attuned. They learned it from meditation.

    An interesting thought innerlight, intent is very important but is it enough?

    Hard to say... And if you think about it you don't really have proof you are being attuned. You don't know what is going on in their head when they attune you. They could be singing the theme song to an 80's tv show for all you know.. So one would need their intent to be there as well.

    i was attuned Reiki 1 and 2 and i think 3 as well, but i must say i never really used it. i perfare simple healing, if simple is the word, i'm not sure. i also quesion the need of the attunement, i must admit that for me Reiki doesn't feel so pure, if you know what i mean. but this might be only me. i only feel that the enrgy is out here and free and all one needs is to be open to receive and deliver.. all knowlage is free. but again it might be only my preception about things.

    I was discussing this the other night with a friend, I think healing is healing at the end of the day and as long as your intent is good it doesn't matter how many labels are attached to it.

    Intent is crucial, and can make or break any healings... IMO, the healer isn't really healing anything.. It's a matter of the healee that wants to be healed. The healer really just helps with the process. By helping to uncover lost memories, or feelings, only the person that wants to be healed can be healed.

    I agree, the healer is merely a channel to direct the energy, I think you're right too that it will only work if the person wants to be healed.

    I am a Reiki Master and Teacher (levels 1,2,3a&3b) of nearly 10 Years, and find that Reiki is a way of life, intent is very much important without it there is no reiki... we are a channel for the universal energy that is harnessed within reiki.
    The use of symbols is also important within reiki, with symbols being revealed to the student at the different levels.

    I think that depends on what you call 'attunement'? I like to think of attunement as 'tuning', flood the student with the energy so that they can be familiar with that energy and then recreate it or tune into it, call it up and then channel etc. I feel that Usui was flooded with energy when he was on the mountain meditating and so the idea and energy pattern were planted.

    I agree... But if Usui could meditate and get those answers from the source then could it not be possible that someone else could do the same? For you see Usui had it better in the fact that it came from source. And that it wasn't tainted by human hands, and the human mind that wants to add and change things to their own style.

    Of course, and many do :)

    Why is that better?

    Reiki has evolved in many ways. It is now accessible to anyone, for free, widely distributed, online and off. No more secret symbols either.

    Some cases it's nice.. Some of them that charge an arm and a leg for something that was freely given is a shame. Unfortunately, it's not accessible to everyone for free.. Some do charge nothing.. Most charge huge amounts. It is my understanding that the charging was not done by Usui, but his follower that made it mainstream.

    What I mean is the traditional way is more purer. Most forms that you see now are diluted. Some are in a good way. Since it allows many more to experience it.. Kind of like the different religions, generally with the same ideas.. Just open to more.

    This starts off the old debate about should anyone charge for spiritual gifts, readings, healings etc I like to look at this on an individual case basis. Sometimes it costs to hire the hall, to heat it, clean it, offer refreshments, then there's the insurance, the photocopying of manuals, certificates, paperwork and admin too. Thosscenarios, why shouldn't the costs be passed on? Why should a healer or a reader not charge for their time too?

    Unfortunately, it's not accessible to everyone for free.. Some do charge nothing.. Most charge huge amounts. It is my understanding that the charging was not done by Usui, but his follower that made it mainstream.

    I thought that Usui demanded ten years work from each student? Isn't that a charge of sorts? Proved dedication though :)

    I think that there are ways to find a free service, especially online. Are we talking training here or use though?

    What I mean is the traditional way is more purer. Most forms that you see now are diluted. Some are in a good way. Since it allows many more to experience it.. Kind of like the different religions, generally with the same ideas.. Just open to more.

    Surely chanelling energy from the source is always pure and can get no purer or be diluted?

    By the way thanks for the interesting discussion, :)

    I agree myself too, i have always automatically been drawn to healing natuarally, and healing mainly on the auric field, i feel and see the auras of ppl and animals etc.... and feel healing is more harnessed through the auric field, as thats where any illness disabilitation hits before striking the physical body...... natural /spiritual healing comes first to me and my main way as a healer..... the reiki i have done , ive done for my own reasons, mainly to boost my own enery field, as i have been quite sick for the last couple of years..ironically..... and my immune system as taken a battering.. although i remain strong in mind body and spirit /soul and beleive what crosses us is meant..... but innitially, i feel reiki / others types healing.... although good for some, i feel its labelising a natural gift..... but thats my own opinion........ but please dont get me wrong im not stating this in no means bad, and i do recieve Karuna healing, at
    least once a week, and i do healing on myself regulary.
    love and light.

    Doesnt reiki mean universal energy or something similar?

    I believe we can all heal, always have been able to.
    However, life experiences can and do block our chakras, mess with the clear meridian channels we once had
    and lower our self esteem.

    During a reiki attunement, our chakras are cleansed and realigned and our meridians are cleared, creating a clear channel for healing energy to flow through.
    Also, the attunee can now accept he/she can heal.

    Most of us go through an emotional cleanse too. Which is always good.

    So, really a reiki attunement is only an emotional and chakra and meridian cleanse.
    And a confidence boost for the attunee.

    I am forever grateful for my reiki attunements, through them, I met my guides, angels etc.
    And gained so much confidence.

    I love attunements :)

    I understand the need for this protection both for the healer and the person recieving healing, especially in this age of suing anything which moves, but it is kind of sad that one person can't help a fellow human being in distress out of the kindness of their hearts and a desire to heal.

    It's really good to hear you've got so much from your attunements Mia



    I was only ever attuned to level one and never persued it further.

    I know this is an old and long thread ...but this post struck me ...I have been very interested in reiki since I learned of it but it took me some time to find a local practitioner & schedule an appointment ...finally got there on Monday this week.

    So, knowing I wanted to learn this - I have been reading and learned about the detox stage after attunement ... and I knew before I ever got that treatment that I wanted this. The practitioner upon meeting me said right off what great energy I had ...we talked for a bit before my session. Afterwards she kept saying how I pulled the energy into myself, that she really did nothing - that sometimes, she has to work at pushing the energy in - she kept saying how strong my energy was ...so, knowing I wanted to have reiki as a 'gift' - which I did - did I pull an attunement into myself, because I knew I wanted it?   Because ...several hours after my session, I developed a blister on a finger that had been paining me and I have had diarrhea today (2 days later) ...I have been craving more wholesome foods ...detox?   Or just coincidence and reiki doing its work? Hmmmm??  Food for thought perhaps ...IDK ...what does anyone think? ...not saying this really happened but makes me wonder ...I will under go a true attunement and am currently doing studies

    No you aren't attuned, the practitioner would have just channelled reiki and that does not attune you.  I would not think that the blister or illness was linked to the session.  It is good that you are eating better though, but I think a lot of what you are feeling is enthusiasm for reiki and that is not a bad thing. :)
