What is Reiki Attunement?

Importance of Reiki Attunement



Reiki Attunement, as the word signifies, is your introduction with Reiki, the Universal Energy. You may say it as an initiation into learning the Reiki healing process. You can also say, it as your admission into the spiritual world of Reiki. When you will receive the Reiki Attunment, Reiki will start flowing through your body and calm your mind and enliven your spirit.

It is during Reiki attunement that the flood gates of Reiki energy are opened. This is an initiation into Reiki. It is done primarily to open up your crown, heart and palm chakras to allow the Universal energy of Reiki to flow through you. The Reiki Attunement helps you to rediscover and expand your inborn healing abilities.



Reiki attunement is significant because during the attunement process your connection with Reiki will be established or increased and you will be more in tune with the universal energy of Reiki. 

Attunement is a process to boost your sensitivity to enable you to feel the universal healing energy more deeply and easily. This attunement process will make you much more efficient in using this energy in a meaningful way to reach the goals of your life.


Eligibility for Reiki Attunement

For the Reiki Attunement you need not to have any special knowledge on Reiki. Any body who is in their teens or beyond is eligible for it. 

Reiki Attunemnets are given by the Reiki instructor or the Reiki Master. There are 3 formal levels of Reiki Attunements for beginners. These beginner Reiki levels are very easy to learn under the guidance of experienced teachers. You will feel relaxed while learning Reiki in the Reiki classes.


Levels of Reiki Attunements

  • Reiki Level 1 Attunement: In this level you will be permanently get connected with the Reiki source, the healing energy of the Universal. After the initiation you will be able to perform healing on yourself or on others. You can flow the Universal energy through yourself by simply placing your hands and opening your heart to recieve Reiki. This first level of Reiki Attunment is the foundation for other two beginner levels of Reiki. You can start the next level when you will complete your 21 days of practice on this level. This first level deals with the physical healing of self and others.
  • Reiki Level 2 Attunement: This level deals with the emotional and mental healing. In this level you will get the chance to be deeply connected with the Universal energy and heal at mental and emotional level. Here you will learn to direct the Reiki energy to travel across any distance and time to heal the emotional and mental issues of any living being, anywhere on this planet. In this level you can practise to send the Reiki energy for healing your family, friends and even animals from a distance. You will learn how to use specific Reiki symbols for specific purposes.
  • Reiki Level 3 Attunement: Before entering to this level you must complete and level 2 of Reiki. The full potential of Reiki energy is unlocked while entering to this level. In this level you will be able to perform Reiki healing on spiritual level to anyone who needs it. This level 3 is also known as level 3A or the master level in some countries. This completes your basic course in Reiki. After this those who have mastered healing and those who want to teach Reiki to others with the intention to helping others can apply for Reiki Master Teacher level or Reiki level 3B.
