Reiki Certification & Attunements

There is a light in this world, a healing spirit more powerful than any darkness we may encounter. We sometimes lose sight of this force when there is suffering, too much pain. Then suddenly, the spirit will emerge through the lives of ordinary people who hear a call and answer in extraordinary ways.” – Mother Teresa

Reiki is an ancient form of hands on healing. Reiki is a Japanese word pronounced Ray-Key, Rei meaning “Divine Love” and Ki – meaning “vital life force energy”. In essence it is “spiritually guided life force energy.” Reiki does not treat disease; rather it strengthens the body’s natural ability to heal itself. It is based on the belief that an unseen “life force energy” flows through our bodies and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then one is more likely to feel sick or struggling with something. Likewise, if it is high, the body is better able to combat stress, illness and heal itself.

Reiki treats the whole person including body, mind and spirit. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect for its recipients. Some benefits include:

• Increased sense of well-being
• Accelerated healing
• Pain relief
• Increased clarity & creativity
• Strengthened immune system
• Rejuvenation of body and soul
• Physical, emotional, spiritual and mental balancing & relaxation
• Spiritual growth
• Lower blood pressure
• Increased ability to handle life’s challenges with calmness

While Reiki is not a religion, a fundamental premise is based on the importance for those attuned to the Reiki energy to live and act in a way that promotes harmony with all others. It is also essential that one must consciously decide that improving oneself is a necessary part of the Reiki healing experience. Also, in order for the Reiki healing energies to have lasting results, one must understand and accept responsibility for our own healing and take an active part in it. Therefore, Reiki is more than just the use of Reiki energy. It is an active commitment to improve oneself in order for it to be a complete system. These ideals are both guidelines for living a gracious life and virtues worthy of practice for all involved in Reiki healing.

Last, Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.

What are Reiki Attunements?

An amazingly simple technique to learn, the ability to use Reiki is not taught in the usual sense, but is transferred to the student during a Reiki “attunement” given by a Reiki master. This allows the student to tap into an unlimited supply of “life force energy” to improve one’s health and enhance the quality of life of others. Reiki is spiritual in nature. However, there are no “pre-requisites” nor any specific spiritual beliefs or religious affiliation. Therefore, it is available to everyone and has been successfully taught to thousands of people of all ages and backgrounds.
