Is Reiki for me?

  • Are you looking to heal yourself or improve your overall life?
  • Are you open to accepting the Reiki energy in your life?
  • Are you looking to remove the negative energy in your life?

If you answered yes to all these questions, Reiki is definitively for you. If you didn't answer yes, Reiki could still be right for you, and maybe you didn't realize how Reiki could change your life.

What is Reiki?


Learning and mastering Reiki allows you to be aware of the energies around you and to direct this energy at your will.

With this energy you will be able to:

You can learn Reiki quickly, and this depends by your available time. The time you will need to learn Reiki will compensate immediately with the benefits it will have over your life.

"Rei" + "Ki" = "Reiki". "Rei" means universal or cosmic life force and "Ki" means life energy. Reiki has no relation to any religion, so you can have any religion you wish.

There are many variations of Reiki, but here you will learn the most powerful method, which is the original Reiki Usui Shiki Ryoho method also known as the Traditional Reiki and has three different levels.

Essential components of Reiki:

What is it exactly?

Is an initiation to enable you to access the Reiki energy on all levels (mental, physical, emotional and psychically) and balances many important energy channels within your spiritual body. The Reiki Master will channel through your aura/spiritual body the Reiki Energy. This process will enable you to access Pure Universal Energy, and the dormant Reiki part that already exists inside yourself will be activated. Now you will be able to use this energy for healing purposes and much more.

Distance attunements?

The attunement can be done in person or at distance, using the Distant Transmission energy.

Time between attunements?

Attunements can be given all in one go or separately, depends on the preference and the time available. Note that both have the same efficiency, but the attunements in one go are more expensive as require more energy in a shorter amount of time.

Physical explanation of attunements

Think of this like a music radio where you change the frequency until you listen to your favorite music station. Here the Reiki Master will tune you until you are on the Reiki healing frequency. Note that after one attunement you will be on the right frequency but after a few days, you will decade to the wrong frequency again. For this reason, it is recommended to repeat the attunements when you feel like your frequency is on the wrong channel. Initially, you should do 2 or 3 attunements to lock yourself in the correct frequency for a few months. Only on our website, after you are attuned, the Reiki Master will channel an additional Universal Life Force Energy to your aura to strengthen your attunement.

What if you feel a bit strange?

After attunement, the Master will adjust your frequency to the healing frequency. After a few months, it might get out of sync, and you might not feel ok again. At this point, you will be able to ask the Reiki Master to lock your frequency in your aura forever, and this process is done using the Secret Symbols, that have been re-discovered by Dr. Mikao Usui in March 1922. These symbols have been secretly passed along to the most devoted Reiki practitioners since then, and some teachers even charged $10,000.

How to know you have received the attunement?

If you use our website to schedule the attunement, you will be able to choose the day, time and timezone where you need the attunement. After attunement, you will feel more energized and more positive in life.

Reiki Symbols #

land lake

The secret symbols are used to give access to these Reiki energies permanently. These energies are old as the Universe and have always been available, but only discovered by Dr. Mikao Usui in the early 19th century. The symbols help to direct the energy.

The symbol helps you to focus on specific healing frequency.

Each symbol has a traditional and western name. For example, the traditional symbol "Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen" has been westernized to "Distance symbol". I suggest for you to use the traditional name when referring to the symbols.

Depending on the circumstances you can choose a different way to invoke/activate the symbol:

  • For distance healing:

    • Draw the secret symbol with your finger on your opposite open hand. It is useful when you are dealing with physical healing.
    • Close your eyes and visualize the symbol. Now try to draw the symbol in your imagination. If you don't remember, work a few times until you can do it entirely with your eyes closed. Useful when doing non-physical healing.
  • By spelling the symbol name five times. Useful when doing non-physical healing.
  • For self-healing or in person healing:
  • Drawing with your center of the hand in the air at approximately 10cm (inches?) from the area to heal. It is useful when you are dealing with physical healing.
  • By spelling the symbol name five times. Useful when doing non-physical healing.

The Distance Symbol: Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen #

The Distance Symbol Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen

  • Traditional name: Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen
  • Pronunciation: honsha zaysho nen
  • Westernized name: The Distance Symbol
  • Reiki Level: 2

Used to send Reiki in space (long distances) and time (past, present, and future).

The Power Symbol: Cho Ku Rei #

The Power Symbol Cho Ku Rei

  • Traditional name: Cho Ku Rei
  • Pronunciation: chou koo ray
  • Westernized name: The Power Symbol
  • Reiki Level: 2

Used for energizing, spiritual protection empowers all other Reiki symbols. For maximum efficiency use it at the beginning and the end of the Reiki sessions.

Can be drawn to target:

  • Food and medicine to increase their effectiveness and decrease side effects.
  • Rooms, flats, houses, and cars to remove the negative energies and to protect yourself from future negative energies.

The Mental/Emotional Symbol: Sei He Ki #

The Mental/Emotional Symbol: Sei He Ki

  • Traditional name: Sei He Ki
  • Pronunciation: sai kei key
  • Westernized name: The Mental/Emotional Symbol
  • Reiki Level: 2

Used to reduce addictions and heal past traumas.

The Balancing Symbol: Tam-a-ra-sha #

The Balancing Symbol: Tam-a-ra-sha

  • Traditional name: Tam-a-ra-sha
  • Pronunciation: tamarasa
  • Westernized name: The Balancing Symbol
  • Reiki Level: 3/Master

Used to balance unbalanced aura energy. If you feel like your mood is changing, and your frequency is not balanced it is the right symbol for you.

The Master Symbol: Dai Ko Myo #

The Master Symbol: Dai Ko Myo

  • Traditional name: Dai Ko Myo
  • Pronunciation: dai komio
  • Westernized name: The Master Symbol
  • Reiki Level: 3/Master

Only Reiki Masters can use the most potent Symbol, Dai Ko Myo, which heals the soul. When something hurts deeper than the mind or heart, the pain is at the soul level. Use this symbol for attunements.


How does Reiki compares to other energy healing methods?

All energy healing methods work by getting energy from the Universe and channeling for a specific task like healing for example. The difference between the Reiki healing method and an Energy Worker, Physic Healer or Basic Channeller is like comparing a car (Reiki) to a horse (others). Reiki works with much higher precision and efficiency, therefore, delivering positive results faster than the other healing methods.

Can you get sick from healing others?

Energy healers usually can get the sickness (headaches, aches, pain, feeling tired) from their clients temporarily, but this never happens when you are using Reiki to heal others.

When you are healing somebody, you are just removing the sick energy and replacing it with Universal energy (this is good energy that makes you feel good and happy). By using Reiki you will never do this transfer directly, but indirectly. This indirection will protect you from getting any sickness from any patients. Other healing methods work by making this energy exchange directly, therefore exposing themselves to the risk of getting these diseases, sometimes even permanently. My recommendation is to stay away from those energy healing methods and stick to Reiki.
