All Reiki therapy sessions resulted in statistically significant reductions in pain, except those sessions in the post-anesthesia car…e unit . Subjects receiving Reiki responded positively to questionnaires completed on the day of discharge.
As a result of positive feedback and decreased pain ratings following Reiki sessions, a Reiki program has been established at the hospital. Ten nurses became trained and certified in Reiki.
I spoke to a young woman this week who informed me that she does Reiki too. When I asked her what Level of attunement she has received I was told , “The beginner, I guess. My Aunt knows it and she tells me, so I guess I do all the levels.” I explained to her that in order to channel Reiki you need to be attuned to it. You can read about Reiki and be given information on Reiki, but unless you have received an attunement from a qualified Reiki Master, you can not channel the Reiki energy.
You can channel the energy and give a Reiki treatment to another person/animal with a Level 1 attunement. Level 2, you learn three of the sacred symbols and learn to “send” a long distant treatment. Level Three is the Master Level. You learn the Master symbol and also learn how to teach and do the Reiki attunements for the different levels. Each level has it’s own attunement.
When receiving a Reiki treatment, you can ask the practitioner what Level of attunement they have received. Again, a practitioner can give a treatment with a Level 1 attunement, but, they HAVE to be Reiki attuned or they are NOT channeling the Reiki energy.
If you have any questions about any of this , please feel free to ask. Xo

When we are studying Reiki we are taught the five Reiki principles for living a good life.
-” Just for today ” reminds us to live in the “now”. We only have to try one day at a time. If on occasion we don’t manage, tomorrow is another day.
– Anger is a conscious choice, usually triggered when someone or something fails to meet your expectations. You can break the cycle and choose a different response.
-Worry is linked with fear of the future and the unknown. It usually centers around the “what if” scenario. No matter how much worrying we do, it will never achieve anything or change anything.
-It is important to value and appreciate the many things in our lives and be grateful for our many blessings. Develop an “attitude of gratitude” rather than just taking things for granted, or thinking with regret about what you haven’t got.
-It is important to respect any work that you have chosen and to honor yourself by creating a feeling of satisfaction in it. Take satisfaction from even the simplest tasks. Work hard on whatever tasks you have to do, and especially on your personal growth and spiritual development.
-Everyone we meet is one of our teachers in one way or another, whether we loathe them or love them, because every interaction we have helps us to learn and grow personally and spiritually. Plus, if you are kind to others they are usually kind to you.
Every act of kindness creates a ripple out into the world. Imagine what a kind, loving place the world would be if we all made the effort to start at least one ripple a day.
