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.

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.

- The first week and a half was very painful for the most part. I was so dizzy that I couldn't walk without tipping to either side. I was afraid to drive and didn't have much of an appetite. I was an EMOTIONAL wreck. I remember (lol) on the 3rd or 4th day I had this hilarious sensation that I was a foot tall, like a baby, and I was wearing diapers, it was pretty funny. After the week and a half mark things changed, two strong protecting spirit guides showed themselves to me through a sensation I got. I have sense felt very powerful and connected with God and the Earth... amazing amazing amazing. People look at me differently, can't explain it. It could be that I have a love for humanity and the universe like I never have before. Today, which is like the two and half week mark I started to do the self healing as usual and had a horrible feeling come over me, like really uncomfortable. But, then something made me open my eyes and the clock said 101 and now I keep seeing 101. So, I don't know what the heck that means. There was something about Michael the Archangel and the Virgin Mary and Jesus. Overall, this has been such a wonderful and Holy experience that I recommend every single person to do it.

Level 1-2 completion
- Drawn to Reiki because of being a natural born empath I wanted a way to help others without "keeping their stuff"! Durnig my Level 1 Reiki class I felt so much energy even before attunement. Extreme pain in my neck and chest (too many to list of things happened unexpected) I came home with a "high" and tried to Reiki all the pets and family. Level 2 was held 24 hours later? A wee bit into the class I became in and out of acceptance/annoyance at the Reiki master-- I desired so much for the "gift" but my empath saw "his" ego and his credit for this to him not divine. I felt angry at times and focus on distance healing was challenging. Disappointed I did research and it is suggest to take a 21 day self journey between 1-2 not 24 hours. I believe I knew that my body needed this and was necessary; therefore the conflict. I am now doing my own 21 day; pausing Level 3 until I am ready-4th day of cleansing I was up all night vomiting something fierce. I knew It instantly it was cleansing..
- Consult with the Reiki client and let them know what will happen. If they still want to receive this energy / frequency change, let them know they need to practice everyday and not to let the ego weight them down and disrespect their teacher.

Random street Reiki attunements
- I love seeing random people on the street getting attuned to Reiki throughout Vancouver and seeing them suddenly being fortunate enough to be thrown into the spiritual deep end.

- I had my first experience with Reiki and felt a rocking sensation. Also, there was a presence with their hand over my left hand. Incredible experience.
- —Guest Guest Mike
- I received my attunement in April of this year 2011. I had helped heal my mother and my son of flu before I received the attunement. At the end of a 10 week course a whole lot of us were attuned at the same time. Some of us were annointed with Egyptian oils and received an attunement there as well. I cannot say that I experienced anything at all at the time. Just excitement but that did not last. Dissapointment a bit yes. I experienced the intense heat during the course and then that subsided as well. Since then I have not done any self healing yet! I have had the strong prickling on the crown of my head twice. I have had the goosebumps running up and down my body. I have had tingling in parts of my body. I had sores appear on the crown of my head when I colored my hair recently. I am a natural Empath, strong sixth sense and know when things are going to happen. More still has to appear. The Reiki I was taught does not believe in 1,2 and 3. We are all masters in the love of Jesus.
