A synopsis of my recent Level II Reiki Attunement and class. Learn what coursework is involved in taking the Level II Reiki Certification and my thoughts on the course.
My first Reiki attunement was about 10 months ago and it was indeed life changing. It pulled me out of what I would call a situational depression. If your are unfamiliar with what Reiki is please read this post, What is Reiki?
On October 16th, 2010 I received my Level II Reiki Attunement. I signed up for an 8 hour class to be held at a local University. There was only one other student in the class plus the instructor, which was slightly disappointing. I had hoped for a larger class as I was looking forward to a good discussion on Reiki and also others questions and answers.
After introductions, we went into how we had been using Reiki in our daily lives and how it had helped for self healing. We also discussed our expectations for what we wanted from the level II attunement. For myself, I wanted to be able to offer distance healing via this website. My classmate wanted to be able to send distance energy healing to family members.
The second attunement was longer than when I took Level I Reiki. I’m sorry I cannot explain this in more detail, it is just something you have to experience for yourself. I really don’t know how to explain it, but it was wonderful and quite powerful! The end result is that you have a stronger connection to source energy and that can enhance your ability to heal via distances and in person.
Once you have received the second attunement, you have the ability to send energy healing via a distance. This could be a short distance within the same home, or a long distance like overseas. We learned how to focus and send healing energy to another. Proximity to the person requesting healing is no longer an issue.
One of the main things we learned to do is Byosen Scanning. This can be done with the participant either lying fully clothed on a massage table or standing. You learn to scan the energy field around the person and pick up on hot or cold spots within the energy field. This energy field is about 4-6 inches away from the body.
By slowly moving your hand around the different energy centers and limbs of the body, you can pick up subtle shifts in energy and from that, determine areas in need of healing. It is yet another method of learning to use your intuition, with physical signs that correlate to the intuitive information you are receiving.
It really is amazing, that by carefully paying attention to the hot and cold areas of the body, that you are able to accurately pick up on what areas of their life are in need of healing. If you are interested you can read more about the healing benefits of Reiki.
We discussed the Reiki distance symbol, the mental/emotional symbol, the power symbol, the Zonar symbol, and the Harth symbol. Each can be used for distance healing and other energy healing purposes. These are sacred Japanese symbols that are only available to those that have taken the Level 2 Reiki training. Level I training does not involve symbols.
Hands on Learning
Since there were only two of us in the class, we had plenty of time to practice the scanning techniques on each other and also the distance energy healing. We spent well over two hours training on the various techniques. We even both picked up the same energy from the instructor.
Reiki Healing Music
This is what I personally use for Reiki healing music. It has a very nice serene sound and the mix is just right. Give it a try. It is wonderful for meditation too.
