If you are currently training or intending to become a Reiki practitioner, you should know what to expect. You can practice Reiki to treat yourself, family, friends, and even animals. In addition, additional training is available for those who wish to extend or go more deeply into their practice as a Reiki Master. Whatever you choose, it is good to be familiar about Reiki training in order to be prepared.

Finishing the First Or Second Degree of Reiki Training

You will have the opportunity to practice Reiki when you attain the First level of Reiki training. This means that you can already start self-treatment and giving treatment to others. The second degree Reiki training requires that a student has completed the First Degree and has had sufficient practice for the energy to be flowing. You also learn the use of symbols to form a connection between you and the recipient.

Here is what you should expect as a Reiki practitioner when attaining the first or second degree of training:

  • You need to commit to the training

You will apply the skills and knowledge that you learnt during training to treat other people so it’s important that to be fully committed to the training.

  • You are expected to master the art of meditation

Meditation plays an important role in your stint as a Reiki practitioner. Make sure you meditate daily.

  • It is your responsibility to continue training

There are additional classes and training that you can take to strengthen your Reiki energy. Once you have received Reiki attunement, Reiki energy is with you for the rest of your life.

  • Reiki attunement

The Reiki attunement is a powerful spiritual experience. The attunement energies are transferred to the student through the Reiki master. Many report having out-of-body experiences involving healings, visions, and past life experiences.

  1. Choosing a Reiki Master or Teacher

Only Reiki Masters are qualified to teach the different forms of Reiki. Sometimes it may seem that people are brought to a particular Reiki teacher by ‘fate’. Speaking with a Reiki master that you are considering as your teacher, either in person or by telephone to find out more about their Reiki path, and perhaps receiving a treatment from them, can aid in making your informed choice.

How Should The Recipients Feel After Treatment?

A person will feel relaxed and less stressed after the treatment. A Reiki treatment is intended to make people feel good and has many benefits for both the practitioner and client. As the Reiki energy encourages one to remove all anxiety, fear, tension or other negative emotions, a state of well-being is experienced.

How Long Can It Take To Learn Reiki?

A beginner’s Reiki class is usually taught on the weekends. The class can be one or two days long. The minimum time necessary is recommended to be at least six to seven hours long. Along with the attunement, it is necessary that students be shown how to give treatments and also get practice giving treatments in class.
