Thread: a question about reiki attunement level 1

    a question about reiki attunement level 1

    I had the first half of the level 1 reiki attunement this past Monday. I won't have the second half until this next Monday evening, but I've already noticed results from the partial attunement and had a question.

    Firstly, about a year ago, a friend scanned me energetically and said that he noticed a part of me that was "holy." Then he said, "Wait, no...it's not a part of you, it's another spirit. But it's so closely bonded with you that I mistook it for part of you at first." Upon further investigation I learned that this positive entity had made an agreement with me, that it could stay bonded with me until it had finished its "job." What it's job is, I don't know yet lol. But it's funny, because I did notice that I am essentially a good person, and sometimes it feels as if the good part of me is augmented by something. I just didn't have words for it until my friend said his thoughts out loud.

    Anyway, since the partial attunement, it feels as if "something else" is working its way through my spirit's system, something that doesn't originate in me. It would be disconcerting, but I sense that it is nonthreatening, and that if I decided I didn't want it there anymore, it would leave. It also feels good. Which brings me to my first question...in a reiki attunement, does a "reiki spirit" or something like that join with you? Another experience which adds weight to this hypothesis in my mind, is that when I practiced reiki on a friend a couple days ago, and was getting ready to stop channeling the energy, I didn't really know how to stop the flow. So I prayed to the Universe - "Universe, could you please gently stop the flow of energy?" Before I had finished my sentence, it felt like two etheric hands which had been extended in front of my physical hands onto the person's head retracted back into my physical hands in a fluid movement. I hadn't even noticed the extra pair of hands before, but I definitely noticed them as they withdrew from the energy of the person I was channelling energy to. For some reason, it didn't feel like they were *my* etheric hands. It was very odd but cool!

    I plan on asking the reiki master come next Monday about this, but I wanted to ask yall too I always get such valuable feedback/insight.

    Thanks for any help

    Which brings me to my first question...in a reiki attunement, does a "reiki spirit" or something like that join with you?
    I'm a Reiki Master-Instructor in training and I have never been taught (in over ten years of association with three different teachers in the same school) that a living entity is conferred during an attunement. Of course, not every lineage is identical: different lineages have different teachings, practices, and even ways of passing on Reiki.

    I don't think it would be presumptuous to ask your Reiki Master if he/she intentionally connected you to a spirit. I would definitely ask or simply share your experience.

    I have met a Reiki Master who intentionally combined her practice with spirit mediumship, but in my studies, I haven't found that the original tradition ever involved mediumship. I have, of course, heard of the "Reiki guides" -- which are entities supposedly specifically devoted to helping Reiki practitioners -- but my own experience with guides has been personal. That is, I knew who my guide was before I ever came to Reiki, and I've continued to work with him in Reiki. I haven't ever had an experience of being joined with my guide other than temporarily during a healing session.

    I don't really have a response to your "etheric hands" experience. I know that when I began having out-of-body experiences that I perceived my astral body as other in the beginning -- I had to get used to the feeling of that part of me. But I don't know that applies to you.

    Re: a question about reiki attunement level 1

    with that said, it is crucial for all participating in, or practicing Reiki to do so with a professional nature exclusive to dramatic and opinionated nonsense.
    That really stings, Timotheus. I don't feel that I was dramatic or opinionated. I was experiencing something new, excited, and very curious about it. I am the first to admit I am very green about energies. But what is wrong with asking questions?

    and three, before ever one has an attunement these questions should be answered in the materials/hands on teaching from the Teacher. otherwise the student is not informed and blindly entering into something unwillfully. will, personal will, requires being informed for it to be a function honored.
    I have a great amount of love and trust for the reiki master who gave me the attunement, as I've been working with her for about a year and a half. I don't feel she intentionally left anything out in what she taught me, or the materials she gave me. But you cannot include all of the information about the functional "mechanics," for lack of a better word, of reiki, unless you were to pass out a very extensive amount of materials...I don't fault her for not doing that. She has pointed me in the direction of some good books on reiki should I choose to look into how this all works more.

    Perhaps your irritation is hitting on something true, which is that I ask a lot of questions here and do not contribute as much as I ask. If this is the case, I'm open to hearing about it for sure; I don't want to use people. Lately I have felt like I've been contributing more, but perhaps it is not enough.

    Timotheus, I always enjoy your posts, you're one of the few people who can make a long post and consistently have me read the whole thing. I'm not sure why you are responding in this way towards me in particular this time. I'll be honest; I feel angry about it. Not sure why it's stirring me up so much.

    Dreamosis,

    I'm a Reiki Master-Instructor in training and I have never been taught (in over ten years of association with three different teachers in the same school) that a living entity is conferred during an attunement.
    That makes sense to me. I'm not anywhere near as experienced as you but I've always been taught that it is an intelligent energy and not an actual entity. It does leave me with the question of, what affects the changes in the person recieving the attunement, during the actual attunement and during the following cleansing and adjustment period? I have felt some noticeable changes already. Maybe it is time to get the book on reiki that the reiki master I work with recommended.

    I don't really have a response to your "etheric hands" experience. I know that when I began having out-of-body experiences that I perceived my astral body as other in the beginning -- I had to get used to the feeling of that part of me. But I don't know that applies to you.
    I started feeling my astral body over a couple of years ago, but I don't remember exactly when...I had my first astral projection experience in 2002, though. So I'm pretty used to what it feels like, but perhaps it was just my astral hands. I am curious and will definitely investigate further, ask the reiki master about it, etc.

    Thanks for your response. =)

    Re: a question about reiki attunement level 1

    It does leave me with the question of, what [e]ffects the changes in the person recieving the attunement, during the actual attunement and during the following cleansing and adjustment period?
    The most common understanding of the Reiki attunement is that it's a powerful sort of ritual healing which clears a person's energy body channels and allows for a greater flow of pure spiritual energy. My experience confirms this understanding, both as a recipient of attunements and a giver of them. Within this understanding, what is effecting the changes during the attunement and following it, is the increased interaction with pure spiritual energy (Reiki). The outer layers of your being begin aligning with the innermost layer.

    My experience has shown me that there is something more at work in an attunement than a simple clearing-out, however. Communicating with other Masters I have heard that some Masters, when doing attunements, set an intent to install the Reiki symbols as thoughtforms in the recipient's energy field. Within this context, what is effecting the changes during an attunement and following it, is the download of an etheric program. In my lineage I haven't been taught to actually install the symbols per se, but I have noticed a passing-on that happens, and have been taught this.

    I've repeated this elsewhere on the messageboard, but I see that there are really three types of attunements, and they all happen simultaneously. There's (1) ritual attunement, (2) attunement from association with a Master, (3) self-attunement. In my experience, the self-attunement must happen for the ritual attunement to have any real effect. Metaphorically, a person has to reach up in order to be pulled up. And ultimately the self-attunement is the most profound.

    The passing-on is what happens from the second type of attunement and is only more pronounced in the formal ritual. What is very important to remember is that the process is living one. That is, a Reiki attunement happens between two living beings -- it isn't a cold surgical procedure. You are affected in unique ways by your Master, as your Master -- and the other students -- are affected by you. The process is personal, organic, and specific to the exchange of energies between all involved. I can't speak from a good deal of lucid experience on this, but my intuition suggests that "all involved" means all those in your lineage.

    Those who are energy-aware have noticed that life leaves a trace in your soul. Some traces, like guilt-ridden religious programming, some of us have tried to change or remove from our souls. The traces are perceived in the form of feelings, mental image pictures, or in extreme cases, etheric devices which control the flow of our energies. Some traces we want to keep, like gorgeous memories.

    The Reiki mentoring and attunement process leaves a trace in you.

    I have felt some noticeable changes already. Maybe it is time to get the book on reiki that the reiki master I work with recommended.
    That's great that you're feeling changes already. As far as getting a book goes, I would recommend just experimenting, living it, contemplating, and trusting your intuition.

    Re: a question about reiki attunement level 1

    Dreamosis,

    That is so cool of you to provide such a detailed description, thank you...I'm always curious about "how things work" kinda like a little boy who will take apart mechanical objects for the same reason. Of course, I realize that human beings are not mechanical objects...but the curiosity I have carried with me as I get more in touch with my spirit.

    Timotheus,

    That was beautiful, thank you...your posts usually give me something to puzzle over, in a good way. And don't worry that my reiki master isn't allowing questions...she lives an hour away, but asked me to email her if I had any. I have a pattern, though, that I am trying to purge myself of, which is fear of "asking too much." She does all she can to avoid reinforcing it in me, but I provide my own energy to it. It's based in past fears, hatreds, etc, which I've been working through with inner dissolving and other methods.
