- I had I&II level Reiki attunement few Months back, together with my wife who is a heart patient. I did not have any special feeling except the feeling of flow of energy through my hands. My wife had a different experience of healing and she is better now. The experience varies from person to person, and as we progress further we will become part of the Universal life force.
- I just had the 1st day of a 2 day reiki 1 class. We had 2 atunements. 1st one I felt surrounded by energy and saw faces during the process. 2nd atunements I experienced all the colors of the chakras. Beautiful vibrant colors. Will receive 2 more atunements during the 2nd half of level 1 class. Can't wait! Incredible experience.

Reiki 1 & 2 attunement
- During both attunements I never felt anything and a year later I still feel nothing when giving a session on myself or others. Does anyone else have this issue?

Attunement Reiki I
- When I received my attunement for Reiki level I last fall I was blown away! My teacher used a gong and I could feel the vibrations flowing through me all the way down to my very soul. The feeling was very powerful and it made me so happy! I loved it! As soon as she was done I burst into tears and sobbed for several minutes. I wasn't thinking about anything sad in particular, that was just my body's response to a good attunement. I loved my level I training and will go back one day for the other levels. I have been practicing on myself and anyone that is interested. When my dog became sick last fall I even practiced Reiki on him! At first he would move away from it but now I think he is used to it. I can always tell where someone is hurting with my hands now, even if I haven't done any Reiki preparations. I am attuned to the energy.
reiki I II
- I had 1 single attunement for Reiki I and another single attunement for reiki II. Though I felt nothing during attunements nor even after, but I Am able to heal others with minor pains. But self healing doesn't work quite well for me. Perhaps I'll have to work my energy further.

Nothing at all
- I received Reiki I and II attunements last May (2011) and have given myself treatments on a regular basis. I've been suffering with abdominal pain, pelvic pain, stomach pain, lower back pain, and colon pain, and just like everything else I've tried, Reiki did nothing for me. I've since been told that we all have the ability to heal with our hands, so why did I have to pay money and go through a silly ceremony for something that doesn't seem to do anything, but that I supposedly already had the ability to do? I'm sorry, but it seems a bit of a scam to me. Good thing they don't charge $10,000 for Reiki Master Attunement anymore. That was obviously a huge scam!

Re-experiencing worst times of my life
- It has been an approximately 6 month journey of receiving my levels 1, 2, 3 attunements and it has been tumultuous. At first, I was bombarded my emotions and memories of the hardest times of my life. Once I began to accept these intrusions, they stopped overwhelming me. These memories calmed down eventually and became rather rare but lately, about 6 weeks after master attunement I now having primal terrors equal to those that I had as a small child-fear of death, fear of vein alone at night, etc... I try to have patience but I am really looking forward to when things get easier. I would really appreciate to know if anyone has experienced the same or if anyone has thoughts on the matter. Much love, Rena

Reiki self treatment experiences
- I wanted to share my experiences with others that are new to Reiki like myself. I will admit that at times doing the Reiki self treatments every single day seemed more like a chore. I want to encourage people to stick with it as I am finding it gets easier and easier every day and less like a chore. My recent self tx have resulted in healings I didn't know were possible! I feel great. My personal advise is to not over think Reiki and just trust it and let it happen and that is when it seems to work strongly! Take care all!

- I had 4 attunements during my Reiki 1 and at the time saw a bright light behind what I can only assume is my third eye. I had my eyes closed throughout and saw colours, fluid, starting off mainly as patches of blue ebbing and flowing & then gradually joined with purples & greens. There was heat in one of my big toes. With each of the 4 attunements I felt the colours, light & heat become more vivid/stronger. The following day I was woken from a dream at 4am by a voice - it sounds wacky but it said 'Healer heal thyself'. For the next two hours I lay in bed with my eyes shut and saw many beautiful colours swirling, ebbing & flowing and the bright light again in the distance, also clusters of flourescent blue dots, I felt a huge, warm surge of energy. My toe is still warm & I have the impression it is a bit of an indicator. When I ask a question of God/the universe the heat increases as I ponder which I can only assume to be the right answer. No doubt that this has changed my life.

Reiki attunement and the animal kingdom
- When i had my second attunement every animal and insect in the area wanted to get involved. LOL. The Reiki master was very surprised!

Crazy heat flashes
- I received my Usui 1 attunement over a year ago. I don't make much money and have kids so rarely do I spend money on myself. I came across someone who offers Ascension Reiki attunements for free as they feel this helps the whole earth ascension process. Just in case it wasn't so, I called in my angels and said that I would only receive if it was for the good of all concerned. Well since then, I have had crazy hot flashes and periods of tremendous calm and peace. I have low blood sugar and tend to have cold nose, hands, and feet but when I feel a wave of energy coming on my hands a swirling feeling in my palm similar to when I had my first attunement. They get so hot my husband gets a bit freaked out when I touch him as he knows this isn't normal for me. My life is much calmer and things have opened up, as far as coincidences and wonderful opportunities. I find that I am getting better at manifesting. Not fancy cars, but my true soul's desires. It's so neat!

After the attunements- Reiki level 1
- I had 4 attunements for Reiki level 1 about 2 weeks ago. The most interesting and wonderful experience so far happened while doing a self treatment session. When I got to the step where the hands are at the heart chakra it began. I have always had pain and tension in my left shoulders and back. I felt my muscles begin tensing up in that area. I just let the energy flow and my entire upper left back and shoulder tensed up into a large ball. My breathing became sporadic. All at once the tension was released in that area and the contracture released, leaving me feeling relaxed and like something great happened. I laid there and my legs and toes were twitching. I had to stop because it felt like I was spinning and I was seeing purple swirls and I felt nauseous. I wish I could of video taped it because it felt like my spine was being straightened. (I have minor scoliosis). I am really liking the way I feel! I am so curious if anyone has had a similar experience?

Level I and II
- About 1 month ago I took levels I and II Reiki, while being attuned for level I I felt a swirling in my right hand. After seeing the symbol I thought that was pretty cool. When doing Reiki on like-minded people I see a lot, but doing it on myself or my daughter I rarely see anything. Why would that be? I know in a Reiki Share I see very similar things to others so I know it works. Just not sure why I don't see much when doing it to my family. Also with each level are you attuned more then once? I hear some people are attuned up to 4 times. I sometimes see a little girl which I am sure was me when I was very young. Also a lot of heart blockages. Trying to heal myself before worrying about trying to heal others, so I can do a better job. But sometimes it very overwhelming. I appreciate any feedback. Love and light.

4 Reiki Level I Attunements
- I completed level 1 Reiki and had 4 attunements. The experience was wonderful. I saw a few images in the first 2 attunements including a crystal that when the course was complete was given to me by my instructor. I found that very interesting and confirmation that something was going on. I did experience back pain during the last attunement. I also saw an eagle the day after and 2 woodpeckers in my yard. During the last attunement with eyes closed my instructor was now a monk during the whole process and I have not been able to look at her the same way since that. My physical cleansing experience has included many coincidences?, headaches, change in food tastes, constipation, dark urine, complete absence of alcohol cravings and change in reaction to alcohol, foot cramps, hand twitching, leg vibrations, sensitivity to electricity, decrease in phlegm, improved sleep, decrease in appetite, cold feet and improved digestion. The most difficult symptom has been headache, otherwise great!

Reiki 1 and 2
- It has been over a week since my attunements. The night after I saw a body outlined with all the colored chakras glowing.Then a box appeared and the top opened. My teacher said it was a gift from my spirit guide. I have been very tired and feeling flu like all week. I also got a yeast infection. I feel better when I do a healing so I have been do one everyday. I see alot of white flashing light and blue and violet colors when I do healings. My hands get real hot and it travels up my arms sometimes. I feel kind of spacey too. Not wanting much food. I got sick when I drank some champagne. I love the way I feel so close to God and feel a part of something so loving. I also have been becoming more psychically intuitive. I will wait 8 months to a year to get my Reiki 3 Master attunment.
