Understanding Reiki – Part Three – Reiki Training

This is the third article in a series designed to clarify and outline Traditional Western Reiki. The previous articles in this series have described what Reiki is; the process of training and attunements and the variations between different systems of Reiki. During this article, you will learn the importance of selecting the right teacher for you. You will also learn what makes a good teacher and what makes a good Reiki training system. The quality of your Reiki training will usually determine how deeply you experience Reiki and therefore how deeply you value and use the gift you have received. Quality of Reiki training varies from comprehensive training teaching you advanced, powerful uses of Reiki and full post-training support all the way down to lumping all levels in one weekend course or worse, all level attunements on-line with little or no support or training at all. Until you know your options, you will not know what questions to ask and what to look for when selecting your Reiki teacher. There are several considerations when looking for the right teacher and training for you. The first is the teacher herself. Consider her passion, interest and confidence in Reiki. Listen to her talk about Reiki and what it can do. Listen to your own feelings, how do you feel about her, do you feel comfortable? Do you feel respected? Do you like her? Remember that with a good teacher, this relationship may be going to last a long time so choose someone who inspires confidence in her ability and knowledge as a Reiki practitioner and teacher. The other aspect of training to consider is the set-up of the Reiki system itself. Make sure the teacher holds to a system that teaches each level separately. A good Reiki Master/teacher knows the value of each level. Each Reiki level has it’s own importance. In the next few paragraphs I will outline the different levels and it will become clear why it is so important to do each level separately. Level One During level one you are introduced to the energy, you begin developing your relationship with it, learning how to work with it, feeling it move through your body, and seeing how it feels to do Reiki on yourself and others. This is important for a deep relationship with this beautiful energy. In good quality training you will learn how to perform the one hour treat on yourself (the most important treatment you can learn) and also how to perform the 1 hour treatment on others including professional presentation and ethics. You will learn other treatments and uses as well. For the professional trainer, this should fit into a 2 day course. The four attunements themselves are usually held over 2 days, each one opening and locking chakras into place, with time enough between attunements to allow your system to adjust and settle in it’s new space. The training and attunements are followed by a 21 day cleanse during which your energy system shakes
