The Attunement


Anyone can be attuned to Reiki. In order for anyone to personally connect with Reiki and use this energy system for themselves and for others they must receive an attunement. This is a transformation of the energy field (aura) which opens, clears and connects the recipient to the ability to use the universal energy. This is not a step to be taken lightly. This attunement should be considered permanent.


The regular use of Reiki is required to continue the accelerated personal spiritual development that Reiki will help to make possible. The person should have a sincere desire to help themselves and willingness to practice and use Reiki for the benefit of all life.


Many people feel an attunement as it is done, as heat or waves of energy flowing into their body. They may see light, colours, see images or hear music. Many people do not have any such experience; they may feel more relaxed or energized than usual. Some people who regularly feel subtle energies may feel the energy coming in.


Some people choose to fast or refrain from eating meat or refrain from smoking and drinking alcohol prior to receiving an attunement to Reiki, However although this is advisable it is not essential.


The Reiki teacher will tell you where to sit and any particular hand position she wants you to hold. You will be asked to keep your eyes closed during the attunement process.  


It is recommended that you drink plenty of water after an attunement. Some people feel that they need to increase their intake permanently after being attuned to any system of healing energy. Attunements and treatments begin the recipients personal healing immediately. This sometimes shows up as symptoms of physical or emotional release such as an excess of gas, diarrhoea or moodiness. This is also known as detoxification or a healing crisis. However most people do not have any noticeable effects of this kind.  A few people have reported some emotional processing for up to 21 days or 3 weeks after an attunement. Some people report unusually vivid dreams after an attunement. This is just part of the detoxification process.  


Everyone should be reminded that in some cases the release of toxins or energetic or physical realignments can cause them to feel worse for a short time before they feel better.


Normal reactions to events that occur and emotions that surface during the period just after an attunement are sometimes attributed to detoxification when they might really be simply due to a freer expression and an enhanced awareness of feelings which can be an effect of attunements.
