After I had my first attunement I used to be fairly unaware of all this. I used to be positively unaware of the thought of enlightenment.

However then, I wasn’t conscious of something: I felt completely nothing all through your complete course of. My first response was: ‘That’s typical! These items by no means work for me!’ Half an hour later I began to really feel a wierd tingling in my palms. Therapeutic arms had been arriving.

My expertise (or moderately non-experience) is one finish of the spectrum. A scholar of mine summed up the opposite. Speechless for fairly some time after her attunement, she ultimately stated, ‘I noticed God.’ I nonetheless bear in mind the expression on her face – a mixture of full happiness and utter disbelief.

She will not be the one scholar who has felt a deep connection to their non secular perception throughout an attunement. Some really feel the presence of Jesus, others the Prophet Mohammed. Some encounter angels.

Many others expertise the sudden in much less apparent phrases: they see colors (typically purple or inexperienced) via closed eyes, forming amorphous shapes that transfer like these in lava lamps. Others really feel lightness of their physique (like floating) or heaviness of their arms (like being given one thing), or localized sensations of warmth, chilly or power motion.

Some even really feel a slight non permanent ache, others the easing of a bodily drawback. Many really feel emotional and have a way of peace, calm and belonging. The bulk use phrases like ‘bizarre’ or ‘unusual’ to explain their experiences. They're completely different from something they've come throughout earlier than and sometimes go away them moderately puzzled.

An attunement is a really profound expertise and I'll due to this fact attempt to make some extra sense of what we might understand throughout one. The experiences are likely to fall into three foremost classes:

1. Clearing blockages for the stream of Reiki

Meridians and chakras are opened, blockages are cleared and power flows extra freely. Within the physique, that is felt as scorching or chilly sensations, sudden physique actions and extra sensitivity on one facet of the physique than on the opposite. Sometimes, slight complications or ache in different areas are felt, the arms get heavy and the toes get heat. The experiences are sometimes significantly localized.

2. Stirring up feelings

Emotions of happiness or disappointment come up, flashbacks happen and recollections floor. We might really feel moderately overwhelmed and confused.

3. Opening to religious realms

Experiences of floating or light-headedness are widespread. We might really feel a presence (angels, guides, relations within the spirit world), sense mild or colors and have an total sense of affection and gratitude. We really feel a connection to one thing deeper and an internal vastness.

One thing is occurring

All these experiences have one factor in widespread: one thing is taking place. They're neither anticipated nor imagined. To our shock, they're simply there. Reiki begins to stream, blockages to clear, and we start to sense our connection to ranges we might not have thought existed.

Many of those experiences will reappear once we give or obtain Reiki therapies. (See Experiences and results throughout a remedy for an extended record of the potential experiences and results that Reiki can convey.)

Regardless of precisely what we expertise, and regardless of how intense, delicate and even uneventful it could be, a Reiki attunement all the time works. The door to Reiki is all the time opened.
