As we've already mentioned, Masters differ within the period of time they take to show Second Diploma, and subsequently there's appreciable variation in what's taught. Nevertheless, there are some fundamentals that ought to all the time be included. I believe my Reiki 2 programs are pretty typical of a standard Western strategy, though some Masters would possibly put issues in a barely totally different order. Additionally, I select to have a night session earlier than the course begins, which allows me to unfold the course out extra to present college students personal research time for studying the symbols and, as a result of I've been taught the strategies from the Japanese custom, I embrace two of a very powerful self-cleansing strategies in all my programs.


The night session permits time for introductions, a dialogue of why college students have determined to take Second Diploma and a top level view of what the course includes. There's then a short overview of Reiki First Diploma concept, together with an replace on the Reiki historical past from the Japanese custom, which is adopted by questions and solutions and a guided meditation.


We start the morning session with a gap circle, sharing Reiki across the group, adopted by demonstration and observe of the Reiki Bathe and Hatsurei-ho from the Japanese custom. After a brief dialogue of the primary components of Reiki at Second Diploma—the therapeutic observe and private and religious improvement—the scholars are launched to the three Reiki Symbols and their mantras:

1. The Energy Image, generally known as the Focus Image: this empowers much more Reiki to move into no matter you're specializing in.

2. The Concord Image, typically known as the Psychological and Emotional Image: that is significantly helpful for therapeutic mental, psychological or emotional issues, and for creating concord and steadiness.

3. The Distant Image, generally known as the Connection Image: this cuts via time and area to allow you to “ship” Reiki to anybody, wherever, at any time.

There's then a dialogue of a few of the methods by which the symbols and their mantras can be utilized for treating the self, others and animals, in addition to some inventive makes use of akin to empowering objectives and affirmations, therapeutic private and world conditions and Earth therapeutic.

The afternoon session begins with a reminder about what a Reiki attunement includes after which there's a guided meditation, instantly adopted by the Reiki Second Diploma attunement. After this I permit my college students some free time for personal meditation, connecting with nature, and studying the Reiki symbols.

After we meet once more later we talk about taking duty for our personal well being and well-being, and observe a number of alternative ways of utilizing the symbols in self-treatments. We finish with a brief meditation and a closing circle.


The morning begins with a gap circle and Hatsurei-ho, which is adopted by an off-the-cuff check to make sure that every scholar can bear in mind the symbols precisely; that is crucial if college students are to make use of them on one another all through the day. There's then a dialogue on the significance of energetic clearing of self and workspace in therapeutic observe.

That is adopted by demonstration and observe of Second Diploma strategies for treating others, together with clearing and cleaning the aura, enhancing sensitivity for scanning the physique for vitality distortions, beaming Reiki into the aura and finishing up a full “psychological and emotional” Reiki therapy on one another utilizing the symbols.

Within the afternoon there's demonstration and observe of distant therapeutic strategies, together with sending a distant “psychological and emotional” therapy and the way to ship therapeutic into the previous and the long run. Afterward there's a question-and-answer session and a dialogue of the 21-day clearing course of and the Reiki observe journals required earlier than certification.We finish with a closing circle.

Different subjects additionally come up in dialogue at varied instances all through the course, akin to who and what will be handled, what to do if therapeutic doesn't occur, what tools is required, what number of therapies are wanted, confidentiality and ethics, combining Reiki with different therapies, and lots of the different topics lined on this ebook.

Additionally, though I permit loads of time to observe the strategies through the course, I believe it's important for college kids to place apart time over the following couple of months to proceed their observe of each hands-on and distant therapy strategies utilizing the symbols. I don’t concern a Second Diploma certificates till I obtain a duplicate of a scholar’s observe journal, detailing their experiences in each.

Most conventional Reiki Masters educate a spread of particular strategies that use a number of of the symbols and permit time for working towards these strategies, however naturally this can rely on the size of the course. You must at the least be taught the symbols, proven the way to perform some types of distant therapeutic, and the way a hands-on therapy will be enhanced utilizing the symbols.

Different Masters additionally incorporate varied meditations or visualizations, in addition to methods of working with spirit guides and crystals, and creating your psychic skills, though generally these extra strategies are taught as a separate follow-up course, along with extra superior methods of utilizing the Reiki symbols.



In the identical means as after a Reiki First Diploma course, you'll undergo one other 21-day clearing course of (see Chapter 4) as your vibrationary fee is heightened and you'll be able to faucet into a better, wider channel of Reiki.

Reiki Second Diploma operates at a fair quicker vibrationary fee than Reiki First Diploma, and a few individuals expertise a really profound change instantly, whereas others discover slower adjustments over the next weeks and months. What is definite is that you'll discover some adjustments. You might anticipate any a number of of quite a lot of results, together with enhanced colour consciousness, heightened sensitivity within the crown chakra space, elevated intuitive capabilities, or a sense of better reference to all the pieces round you.

In lots of religious traditions it's crucial to check and meditate for a few years to succeed in an understanding of the which means of your personal life, but Reiki—and particularly Reiki 2—awakens our sense of the connectedness with and Divinity inside everybody and all the pieces. It's important that it's best to honor this course of as a priceless alternative for religious development. Be form to your self: commit your self to do a self-treatment daily; drink between six and eight glasses of pure water every day; and attempt to spend a while in quiet contemplation or meditation. If attainable, prepare to have at the least someday afterward for gently reentering the conventional world after the highly effective religious results of the course.
