The Process Of Reiki Attunement

By Russell Akcay

Reiki attunement is the process in which a Reiki master teaches or transfers his Reiki palm healing abilities to the recipient. This is done so that the latter also gets access to the infinite universal energy of the cosmos and develops the ability to receive the same and channelize it through his palms on to another person for healing purposes.

The word ‘ reiki’ comes from the word ‘ rei’ meaning ‘universals’ and ‘ki’ meaning ‘life force energy’ . This phenomenon is solely based on the ways to access cosmos energy and then transmit it through the palms for relaxation, reduction or stress and healing purposes. This process is mainly concerned with the transferring of reiki powers from a master to a receiver.

The Usui system and the ancient Tibetan way of healing have been blended to form the Reiki attunement process. Though reiki is originally from Tibet, Dr. Mikao is the person mainly responsible for popularizing it. In reiki attunement, the two practices have been mixed so that the power to use the cosmos energy is transmitted to the receiver from the master.

It must be noted that Reiki Attunement occurs in three degrees of levels. In the first level, the recipient is able to channelize the energy and make it flow out from his/her palms. In the second level, the recipient gains knowledge about the various Reiki symbols which can be used to empower the palm healing process being able to heal another person physically and emotionally across time and space. At the last level, the recipient is already much experienced and gains control over advanced Reiki symbols. He has reached the master’s level himself now and can undertake Reiki attunement process for others.

The reiki attunement process begins with the grounding and the centering of the reiki masters and recipients. There are two divisions to this process. At first the reiki master stands behind the recipient and in the next part, he faces the latter. The reiki attunement is a ceremony and the master resorts to symbols and different palm gestures like stroking, blowing, tapping and chanting to open the reiki crown of the head chakra and the third eye chakra of the receiver and tune it with the infinite cosmos energy field.

At the start of the ceremony, the master stands behind the recipient, raises his left palm and receives the infinite cosmos energy. He uses his right hand to make reiki symbols on the crown of the receivers head and concentrates and mediates intensely directing the accessed energy onto the same. Then he comes to face the recipient to focuses on his palms and the third eye chakra.

The Reiki attunement process now progresses with the master taking the recipient’s palms into his own, drawing symbols on them, chanting each symbol’s name, tapping and blowing with intense focus. This similar process is again undertaken by the master for the recipient’s third eye region as well.

Thereafter, the master visualizes the master violet symbol in his own left hand and holds it on the recipient’s right palm, tapping, blowing and chanting in the process and does the same thing with the other palm as well. Finally with intense concentration he visualizes the symbol in between the two palms of the recipient slowly bringing them together and giving it back to them. Finally, after the Reiki attunement process is complete, the master stands back, bows to honour the recipient for their new ability and who they are.
