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.
Once you have been attuned, you will have the ability to channel Reiki energy for the rest of your life--it never "wears off" and you can never lose it. The power of Reiki never diminishes within you--in fact, the amount of Life Force Energy you can channel increases: 1) as you use Reiki more and more in your life. 2) in direct proportion to the degree to which you love yourself without condition, and 3) in direct proportion to how much you extend love outwardly to others, not only while practicing Reiki, but in everything you do. Love is the highest frequency, and as you feel within you your connection to all people, places and things, your energy heightens, and the flow of Life Force Energy increases within you, quite naturally and automatically.
