Reiki comes from two Japanese words, “Rei” meaning “God’s Wisdom” or “Higher Power” and “Ki” meaning “life force energy.” The Japanese stress-reduction and healing therapy literally translates to “spiritually guided life force energy.”
How Reiki Works
Reiki is based on the idea that health comes from the Ki flowing through and around a person, rather than the condition of the physical body. Ki is the reason why the physical organs function in a healthy way, and when the flow if Ki is blocked or disrupted, it adversely affects the body, causing the illness.
Ki responds to a person’s thoughts and feelings, so positive thoughts help the Ki flow more freely through the body to contribute to improved health. Negative thoughts contribute to a poor flow of Ki to contribute to decreased health and vitality. Even Western medicine is starting to recognize the mind-body connection and the ability to improve/worsen health conditions. To understand how the mind-body connection works, you must understand that all the organs are connected to the nervous system via the nerves that transmit messages to and from the brain, therefore our mind is more than the brain itself.
Anyone can learn Reiki. It doesn’t take years of practice or studying. All it takes is an attunement from a Reiki master to pass the energy and the ability to do Reiki from the teacher to the student.
Reiki is a Japanese system of healing the mind, body, and spirit through uses of energies that are present in all living things. It uses a series of hand placements over or onto various chakras of the body to promote healing. It also uses symbols to enhance the power of the Reiki that is performed. There are 3 levels of Reiki practitioners. At Level 2, the use of symbols begins. These symbols are given to the student from the Reiki Master when the Master feels the student is ready for them.
Reiki is a natural and safe method by which individuals can achieve self-improvement and healing. It is based on Life Force Energy and was founded by Mikao Usui. The student starts out at Level 1. This level is available to anyone.
This level is the starting point. Anyone can learn to perform Reiki during Level 1. This is an initiation stage where the student is introduced to the concept of universal energy. This is known as the physical level with 80-90% of this level being physical in nature. The main focus here is on opening the channels of energy. This attunement brings the student into the realm of Reiki and its uses. This is also the level at which the student works through their own issues and any obstacles that may have brought them to Reiki.

Level 2 Reiki opens the energy channels even further. The amount of energy a student can channel is increased and the focus may move toward healing others as well as the self. Students also receive symbols at this level. These symbols are the power symbol, the mental symbol and the distance symbol. These are used to allow the practitioners to connect on a deeper level to the universal energy.

Level 3 Reiki is known to some as the Master level. Others see the Master level as a separate, higher level. This level increases the ability to channel energy even further. Students work on a more spiritual level and learn that each person is in charge of his own destiny. At this level, a student may find his true path in life. Each student will gain the ability to initiate others, as well as teach the attunement process.
During this two-day retreat, you will receive education correlating with Energy Channeling, Personal Empowerment, and loving encouragement during your process of integration and advancement as a Reiki Master Teacher. In order to reach Master Level, it is important and ethical to understand deeply the principles of Reiki, as well as how to facilitate proper energy channeling to anyone receiving a Reiki share. Gaining the ability to initiate others through the attunement process of Usui Reiki, and participating in Traditional Sacred Ceremony. Students must dress in ALL WHITE.
The Reiki Attunement for Master Level will be a ritual initiation to the Master Symbol of Healing, which connects you to the Cosmic level of the Usui Reiki Method. In turn, you will have the ability to connect, clean and heal on all 4 Planes of Existence.
In the end, we must consider that a Reiki Master is not one who has mastered Reiki, but one who has been mastered by Reiki. This requires that we surrender completely to the Spirit of Reiki, allowing it to guide every area of our lives and become our only focus and source of nurturing sustenance. As we proceed forward on our path of existence, the “Way of Reiki” offers itself as a solution to our problems and a path of unlimited potential. May all who would benefit from this path be guided to it.

Reiki involves a commitment from the student to improve the self. It uses Universal Energy to heal and to create harmony and balance. Reiki can turn the lower, negative vibrations into higher, positive vibrations. It allows the body to heal by healing the mind and moving toward a more spiritual purpose.
Students progress through various levels as they learn more and become more proficient at channeling the Universal Energy. Reiki works on the principle that all life contains energies. These energies can be changed and channeled in such a way as to turn the negative into positive.
This, coupled with the student’s dedication to improving, can bring about a more harmonious existence for the practitioner and others.
