A process of purification is recommended before your Reiki training which includes:

  • Refraining from eating meat, dairy and sugar foods three days before your training
  • Minimise the use of caffeine drinks
  • No alcohol for three days prior to training
  • Reduce the use of TV, radio, electronic equipment and newspapers
  • Go for quiet walks, spend time with nature and get moderate exercise

Reiki First Degree Level 1

The First Degree provides 4 attunements which free the flow of Reiki healing energy within you. The history of Reiki, its ideals and how it works will be discussed and your questions answered. You will be shown how to scan the body to sense energy blockages, how to treat various ailments by laying your hands on the receiver’s body and the hand positions used to give a full treatment to yourself or someone else.

Reiki Second Degree Level 2

Second Degree Reiki allows you to send Reiki on a distant basis, clear a room of negative energy, work on the Mental/Emotional plane, greatly reinforces a physical healing session, works on events past, present or future, heals unwanted habits, helps you develop wanted habits.

The second degree attunements provides a leap in vibratory level. Its primary effect is on the etheric body whilst Reiki 1 has a greater effect on the physical body. It has a marked effect on the third eye which often heightens the intuition and psychic abilities of the recipient.

In the second degree Reiki, you are given 3 symbols to use. The first symbol is called the Distance symbol. With this symbol you can send healing to people who are not in the same room as you are, they may be in a different town or country or even planet.

The second symbol is called the Power symbol. It is used to reinforce a physical treatment and make it more powerful. It can also be used to clear a room of negative energy or protect yourself against your customers (or other) negative energy.

The Mental/Emotional symbol will allow you to work on emotional traumas. Mind, body and spirit are closely connected together and sometimes one cannot heal the body without also working on the mind. The Mental/Emotional symbol heals the mind. A useful symbol in the case of distress, emotional upsets, wanting to get rid of bad habits or acquire new good habits. It also allows you to exercise possessed souls and help lost souls on their way to the spiritual world.

Reiki Master Level 3

The attunement to Master again raises the vibratory level and activates the Master symbol so that it may be used to help others empower themselves. Students choose to receive an attunement which can be very empowering. A Reiki Master accepts the responsibility for their own life and destiny and receives the tools to provide this help for themselves and other who seek it.

In this degree you are given access to the Master symbol which multiplies the strength of your healing and two Tibetan symbols which also add to the power and range of your healing abilities. Psychic surgery using Reiki is may also be taught. You are taught how to attune others to all degrees of Reiki. You will be given practical advice on teaching Reiki and running your own courses for Reiki training.
