45 Free Reiki Attunements
No current Talk conversations about this book. I received this e-book free from Chris Comish via Library Thing. I have asked for and received the Reiki 1 and 2 attunements, which actually I had previously received years ago, having attended courses to receive initiations and learn these forms of healing. But I now also received the Reiki Master attunement via this book.
I can attest to the fact that now every time I do a Reiki healing I feel an extremely strong energy, in fact feel quite giddy, and this giddiness lasts for some time afterwards. I would imagine that on a regular course teaching us these abilities we would be provided with a wealth of instructions. And I would feel that knowledge of the appertaining symbols would be necessary. I assume so because the three Reiki symbols I already know have different uses. I have also received the Full Spectrum Healing attunement. But, again does one use the other Reiki symbols first?
I am grateful to Chris Comish for sending me these books and giving me access to the healings, and I acknowledge their validity and power. I just think that the book should also have included the appertaining symbols and basic instructions. I would have awarded the book 5 stars, had it included the afore-mentioned symbols and instructions. IonaS Jun 18, The author states right in the beginning that his biggest reason for writing this book was to make the glorious energies of the different modalities available to everyone.
Since I had been attuned to some of the healing modalities already I had a sense of what to expect when it came to receiving distance attunements and I must say the ones I did choose went in smoothly and easily and felt oh so good. I would recommend this excellent little gem to anyone wanting to heighten their spirituality on a bunch of different levels. Thanks Chris, for the enlightening experience. While this book has 45 attunements, which I was impressed with, I did have some issues with this book.
Examples of “reiki”
As I only have a general knowledge of Reiki and attunements this book really didn't help me. I had to go online to figure out how to properly use the attunements. It should note on the cover that you need to have knowledge of Reiki for this book to be of any use to you. I received my copy through a LibraryThing giveaway.
The result of this process is that there are hundreds of Reiki styles where differences in doctrine and belief are visible. Before proceeding, it is important to distinguish between Reiki, the phenomenon of the practice, and the phrase reiki energy, which refers to the alleged and called upon universal life energy. In the U. Similarly, in the U. Recent research seems to indicate that this has to do with the socio-cultural setting where Western Reiki is practiced Jonker Also it seems that the majority of practitioners, roughly eighty percent, are women with an educational level that is medium to high, and that nursing and teaching professions are over-represented within Reiki practitioners.
The word practitioner is a homonym; it represents practitioners that offer Reiki treatment in an official setting practitioners or public, professional practitioners and people that practice Reiki for themselves practitioners or self-practitioners. This profile uses practitioner and self-practitioner synonymously as the word practitioner implies self-practitioners.
There are limited statistics available on the number of public Reiki practitioners and self-practitioners, but based on what is known, they differ in terms of percentage per country. For instance, i n the Netherlands where Reiki was introduced in , it is estimated that today there are around 1, Reiki practitioners and that there are over , self-practitioners. In a population of roughly 16,,, that makes the ratio , and Comparatively, in India, there are an estimated 1,, self-practitioners but a population of over 1,,,, which makes the ratio Also, in the West, like elsewhere in the world, there is a relation between cultural mainstream religion and spirituality and the division of a certain treatment in either allopathic medicine or CAM.
The doctrines and convictions to be discussed are in the Western world; however they are not part of the domain of Western science, and, therefore, Reiki is not part of allopathic medicine, which is based and founded on Western science.

Anticipating aspects of Reiki practice introduced in the next section, in science there is no place for the concept of universal life energy with healing capacities, no place for belief in use of symbols and accompanying mantras, and no place for energetic initiation rituals. Compared with healing activities within Christianity, Reiki differs on a fundamental level.
In Reiki, the healing can be called upon at free will, and so the energy is freely accessible at any time. Further, conversion is not recognized within the practice of Reiki, although certain awareness on some sort of surrender Beeler forthcoming is believed to help personal development and empowerment while practicing Reiki. Every-day reality and transcendent reality. Contemporary Western Reiki is a spiritual healing practice that operatespractice that operates both in every-day reality as well as in a transcendent reality.
The practice, therefore, holds several rituals that are believed to offer an interface between those two realms. The best known ritual found today sets Reiki apart from many other contemporary CAM modalities: the initiation ritual. Another interface is the use of sacred and secret symbols.
Finally, the aspect of healing is holistically interpreted to include spirit, which also touches transcendence. Reiki energy.
Practitioners believe in a subtle energy, mostly called universal life energy, reiki energy, divine energy, God Power, God energy or Love energy. For all styles this is the very basic element which underpins the practice of Reiki. Necessity of an undistorted flow. Relation between reiki energy and healing.
A universal goal of practising Reiki is healing. Practitioners believe that this energy influences the process of healing where healing is understood through personal narrative, like curing of a disease or easing of a mental state. Most often practitioners state that practicing Reiki on oneself or receiving Reiki from another person promises to stimulate self-healing capacities of body, mind and spirit and to restore balance. In a wider context, it is the tool for self-development where personalized healing finds its place.
In etic literature, healing through Reiki is already recognized as holistic healing Jonker , and it is recognized that the process of healing and care reflected within Reiki practice characterise the social and cultural values of well- being Adelson for the Reiki milieu. This imperative becomes a practical ethic when knowing what the right thing to do means actually doing it Aristotle and Crisp Love, as it is used in the West, is problematic, however, in that it leaves little room for understanding what is going on Oord Therefore, within Reiki practice as healing and care, it is demonstrated that love is a foundational value of well-being.
This demonstrates a central link between spirituality and well-being where doing—becoming—being is a way in which British practitioners processually embody the Reiki practice in their lives.

The fluidity of doing—becoming—being with the return to doing is further encapsulated in the nature of Reiki practice as self-practice. Practitioners believe that a treatment can also be performed from a distance, a so-called distant-treatment. But there are different concepts used to explain this. From a Buddhist perspective some suggest that during a distant-treatment the practitioner for a while enters a realm of oneness where it is possible to treat another person. From the perspective of Theosophy some suggest that one enters a state of mind where it is possible to treat the ethereal body, often called aura, of another person that stretches out through the universe.
Enhancing powers. Practitioners believe that the more one practices, the ability to giving Reiki increases: the stronger the flow of energy becomes. Magic powers. Practitioners believe in the concept of holism, where body, mind and spirit are involved and integrated. For some practitioners, like in The Netherlands, this idea is often extended to the belief in past lives and sometimes also to future lives, whereas in Britain, this was not always the case.
Connection with transcendent reality. They also believe in the effect of a so-called Master initiation through which one is acknowledged being a Master oneself and acquires the ability to perform the initiation ritual for others.

This system also offers a control mechanism in who can and cannot get access to Reiki; one has to be initiated by a Reiki Master. The procedure of controlling access is also directly connected to the initiation ritual: no initiation, no Reiki.
