Reiki is a healing practice where the healer channels their energy into the patient through touch. It is said to activate the healing properties within the patient to help with their physical and emotional well-being. This alternative medicine was created in 1922 by the Japanese Buddist Mikao Usui. Since it's creation several other variations have been created some with names like "palm healing" or "hands-on healing". A little over 100 years ago a Japanese man, Mikao Usui, began a personal search that ended with his having contact with the energy Reiki. His practice grew and eventually Reiki was introduced out of Japan via Hawaii in 1937 by Hawayo Takata Sensei. It is passed on from one person to another through a specific initiation, teachings and a defined form of practice.

The Japanese word ‘reiki’ can be translated as ‘universal life energy’ and the Usui System is a way of working with reiki for healing of self and others. The word healing is used in the sense of regaining harmony and wholeness.
For those who want to learn the traditional or Usui method, there are three levels of training. Here is what you can expect in a first degree traditional Usui Reiki class.

Reiki Training Manual (Included)
My BodYoga's Reiki Teacher Training is a program that allows you to take the levels of Reiki Training with nice practice time in between. Once you have completed a level of training, you will become certified in that level, then you can practice as a Reiki Practitioner using the level of training.
Your training will be with an experienced Reiki Master in a small class setting to ensure the attention needed to work with each student and this amazing energetic work.
Second Degree Level II Certification
This next step of your Reiki journey will build on to the Reiki I training and continue with the following when you are attuned to Reiki Level 2, you become more aware of the importance for your connected wholeness on all levels - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual; wholeness and balanced health become synonymous.
Attunement to Reiki Level 2 opens your heart chakra, which is the mid-point and connector between the physical and spiritual or universal realms. Once your heart chakra opens, your intuition increases and your sensitivity to subtle energies are heightened.
Your desire to become attuned to Reiki Level 2 will happen when you are ready to move further into the deeper dimensions of healing with Reiki such as…..
Healing deeper traumas
Healing situations (personal or global)
Healing situations from the past, present or the future
Upon receiving 2nd level attunement, you will learn the three sacred symbols, their form, their sound and their meaning, which will enable you to consciously direct Reiki energy through your mind (calling the energy) to achieve specific results.
The practice of healing through 2nd degree can be profound, as it is considered a quantum leap forward on your spiritual path, indicating your soul’s desire to be of service to others through sharing unconditional love.
What is an Attunement?
In Japanese, this ceremony is called Reiju (pronounced Ray-joo) and translated, it means spiritual energy blessing. In a modern day ceremony, your body moves into a spiritual state (or universal energy state) through the use of ancient sounds or symbols, which harmonize your mental and emotional bodies, plus also aligns your spiritual essence within to re-connect you to your true “self” (or your soul).
The attunement also clears your meridians (energy pathways) throughout your body to allow Ki energy to flow freely.
The Reiki Master Teacher does not have any special powers to pass along, but merely acts as a channel to provide or create a safe place for you to draw in Ki energy, thus allowing you to connect universal life force energy (or Source) to your inner self or soul. You will draw Ki energy to the level where you specifically need it – mental, emotional, physical or spiritual levels
By receiving attunement or reiju at each Reiki level, you accept universal blessings to support your journey of self-responsibility for your own spiritual progress. Your success for your personal journey depends entirely on how much time and effort you are willing to apply; the more effort you make, the more blessings you receive.
The main purpose of an attunement is to raise your energy level, plus strengthen your connection to universal spiritual energy.
With Reiki Level 2 (also called 2nd degree), you receive one attunement which opens your heart chakra, which allows you to share and experience un-conditional universal love and compassion
