Qualities Of A Reiki Master

By Malvika Raju

A reiki master is a person who has been able to reach the peak in the practice of reiki. Thus, he is the most knowledgeable in this ancient palm healing technique He is the one who can control the advanced reiki symbols for accessing the infinite positive energy of the cosmos so as to transmit it through his palms in order to heal another person.

A reiki master is also a teacher. He can attune and teach his pupils the art of reiki. This is not done in typical classrooms. Rather, it is done from the teacher to the student in the same manner as the Reiki master heals his patients by transferring energy. This process known as Reiki attunement can only be done by a Reiki Master.

The word ‘reiki’ comes from the two words ‘rei’ meaning ‘universal’ and ‘ki’ meaning ‘life force energy’. This is a very ancient form of Tibetan palm healing technique, which was made popular by Dr. Mikao Usui. In this method of healing, the reiki master is able to tap into the infinite cosmos energy and transmit it through his palms for opening and balancing all the seven chakras present in the human body, from the spinal base to the crown of the head.

There are two ways a Reiki Master can heal a person. He can perform localized Reiki on specific parts of the diseased person, maybe an injured part of the body. Or, he can channelize the energy of the cosmos by performing various hand positions for the entire body where the flow of energy would assess the seven reiki chakras, which ones are blocked or misdirected and open or balance the same so that the person is cured physically, mentally, psychologically and spiritually.

A Reiki Master attunes other reiki practitioners or undertakes the Reiki attunement process in three degrees or levels. In the first level, known as Shoden in Japanese, the basic theories and practices are taught. Thus the Reiki master trains the recipients on the various hand positions favouring the whole body treatment for others. The duration of this level depends solely on the reiki master.

Shokuden is the second level of reiki attunement in Japanese. Here the master trains the recipient in different kinds of reiki symbols for the purpose of healing and determining energy flow. For example, how to use the reiki symbols that joins the flow of energy from the practitioner to the healee? Finally, when this level is complete, the practitioners can adequately heal people whenever and wherever.

Shinpiden is the last level of reiki training undertaken by the master. Here the student becomes the master at the end of the level, and he can teach others the art of reiki. The knowledge regarding advanced reiki symbols and control over the same, for healing powers is gained. When the master attunes the practitioner, the latter turns into a master himself.

A Reiki master is an expert in all healing techniques and can attune other practitioners with his palm, drawing symbols, stroking, blowing, chanting and tapping techniques. Reiki master is thus one of the pillars in the practice of the ancient Reiki art of healing.
