Over the years I have had Reiki sessions form a number of practitioners. All sessions were incredibly beneficial to me, I always felt at peace with myself and my life for weeks and months after.
But it was the last practitioner who mentioned I had a skill, something useful to others that I was unaware of. It would be a new path for me. She moved on to follow her own path but left me with a very beneficial contact who would help me follow my new path.
I was attuned to Reiki Level 1 shortly after I meet my Registered Reiki Teacher and Practitioner. My studies with Reiki, the history, the vibrancy of Reiki energy, the clarity of thought and purpose it gave me and the desire to help others encouraged me to continue with added purpose and vigor. I am attuned to Master Teacher Level and I too am a Registered Reiki Teacher and Practitioner under the Canadian Reiki Association and A Usui Tibetan Reiki Master Teacher under the International Association of Reiki Professionals.
Attunement happens as part of your studies at each Attunement level. It is performed by a Reiki Master. It takes minutes to complete and is different for every person. You may feel or become aware of Reiki energy or you may not. In my case, my connection with the new Reiki Symbols and energy that I received in the Attunement happened after the event, when I was at peace in my own space. There was a sense of a new width to my connection to Reiki and awareness that when needed, that width would be taken up by Reiki.
Following attunement, it is sometimes the case that the new energy we are receiving unblocks and releases stuck energy from the body. Energetically, it also removes energy that no longer meets our purpose. The remains of a relationship that did not work out is removed at this time. Depending on how receptive you are, how much stuck energy there is, and how much energy baggage you are carrying around with you, this clearing can take some time.
I was fortunate, the time and the effects of the energy clearing were minimal. As the days passed, my link to this powerful energy became stronger and gave me a sense of purpose and I came to understand the direction I was to follow, what my life path purpose is.
Connecting to Reiki changes everything. Colors are deeper and richer, especially when I am out in nature, walking in the park. When I am in the park and stop on a bench, it is because I am feeling my connection to nature and everything round me is deeper. There is a feeling that all around me is energy, it is growing and diverse, and will always be there. I understand that all creatures are sentient beings, all are energetic and each has a spirit and is connected to the universal energy as we are becoming aware of. We are part of nature, not an observer or by stander of nature. whole I am there, Reiki helps to release my stress and worries.
Intuition and intention expand. I have a broader relationship with the world and who I interact with every day. Increasingly, there is a sense of being awakened to this wonderful physical world and to the spiritual, energetic world.
Over time, this connection with the natural world matures and we understand that all creatures are sentient beings and we connect with them on a much deeper level. We become part of nature, as opposed to being simply an observer of nature. We learn to live in harmony with all beings. We learn the way of love and light.
