Attunements are used to enable people to do Reiki themselves and are NOT the same as receiving Reiki Healing.
When you agree to have a Reiki attunement, you are responding to the inner calling of your spiritual heart. You are, in essence making a clear statement of intention to the Universe that you desire to become a channel of higher frequencies of Light and Love.
A Reiki attunement is an initiation into a sacred metaphysical order that has been present on Earth for many thousands of years. This Reiki Family is made up of individuals who have worked lovingly and diligently to facilitate healing for themselves and others, and the planet itself, and you can tap into that pool of love and wisdom at any time.
The Reiki attunement facilitates the opening of the crown, heart and palm chakras, as well as the throat and third eye chakras. Attunements have the potential to increase psychic sensitivity, and so many times messages are received by the Reiki Master and/or student from Reiki guides and other spiritual beings during the attunement process.
