Within the system of Usui Reiki there are 6 major elements that a Reiki practitioner will learn, practice and experience:
Is the beginning of the student's journey of self-healing; how to strengthen one's inner energy and begin a personal healing process. Students receive 4 attunements to the Reiki Ray. Once initiated, it allows you to channel Reiki energy for healing yourself and others. It is the foundation of all 3 Degrees, or levels.
Students learn 3 mantras and symbols which aid in focusing and developing a strength and connection to energy. Students receive 3 attunements to the symbols utilized in this level, which provide an increase in power from the Reiki Ray for Absentee Healing and Mental/Emotional healing. The student can now be considered a Reiki Practitioner.
Is the level of Reiki Master, a teacher and practitioner of Reiki. Students receive one attunement to the full Reiki Ray and for those guided, the path of the Teacher begins to unfold. The course focuses on personal development and teaches the Master symbols and mantras, as well as how to perform attunements on others.
