Benefits Of Taking A Reiki Course Explained

Have you considered taking a Reiki course but aren't really sure why? Maybe you have experienced the power of Reiki from a practitioner? Or you have heard about Reiki but never actually had a session? Either way this explanation of what a Reiki course is and the benefits of taking one are for you.

First off it's important to understand what Reiki is. Reiki is Universal Life Force Energy. When you take a Reiki course you receive a Reiki attunement, which turns on the Reiki energy flow through your body. There is actually nothing you need to do or be to "learn" Reiki. In fact, although there is the history of Reiki and things you can learn about Reiki, you don't actually "have" to learn anything. You become attuned to the Reiki frequency. The more you allow the energy to flow, the stronger it becomes.

Let's break down each Reiki course and how each course can help you.

Reiki I is the first level of Reiki. In a Reiki I course you learn Reiki history, Reiki basics, Receive a Reiki Attunement, learn how to apply a self healing session and receive a Reiki Attunement. A Reiki I attunement instantly raises your vibration and releases many lower level attachments. Many people have a deeply sacred experience when they receive their first attunement. Once attuned, Reiki begins automatically flowing through your body. This assists in deep healing and transformation of both the body and your being. There is nothing you have to do or be. It just flows. Just imagine having your own personal flow of pure positive life force energy always at your disposal. Pretty cool right?

Reiki II is the second course. In a Reiki II course you learn about the Reiki symbols, how to apply the symbols to your daily life, learn to do a Reiki healing session on someone, send Reiki distantly to your past self, future self and or others, receive a Reiki II attunement and receive the rights to being a Reiki practitioner. Once you are a Reiki practitioner your Reiki flow amps up even more. You can work on other people, animal, plants, buildings, anything really. You learn how to send Reiki to yourself to heal your past and to your future to create ease in stressful experiences, like an upcoming court appearance. Although a Reiki two course gives you the rights to work on others, you can solely use the Reiki II course to continue to amp up your own self healing transformation. After receiving a Reiki II attunement many people feel more connected to peace than ever before. They experience Reiki flowing quickly with massive ease helping them to navigate experiences better and easier than ever before. It also increases their awareness and psychic abilities. And connects them deeper than ever before to life and creation in new and interesting ways.

Reiki Master is the last of the Reiki Courses. In this course you get access to the complete Reiki magic by given rights as a Reiki Master. In this class you learn how to pass Reiki to others, how to hold space with Reiki magic and how to teach others about the power of Reiki. Receiving a Reiki Master attunement is a deeply sacred experience, that opens you up to bloodlines of other masters filling you with deep inner healing wisdom and aligning you with the power of being a Reiki Master. Use your attunement to pass on the magic of Reiki to those open and ready to heal their life. Have an ailing family member? Pass on a Reiki attunement to amp up their own healing abilities. Are you a parent? Pass on a Reiki attunement to your children and teach them how to use the power of Reiki for self healing. Want to help the world evolve? Teach a Reiki course in your community and pass on the healing power of Reiki.

Reiki is a powerful form of healing and transformation that when allowed becomes one with the frequency and vibration of who you be. The more you connect and practice your Reiki healing the more powerful it becomes.
