Who is a Reiki Grandmaster?
Reiki Grandmaster is a person who has been in the practice for years and has almost reached the Buddha stage.
How did Grand Master Level come into existence?
Though in Usui Traditional Reiki we have Grandmaster Level, it was not introduced by Mikao Usui himself. Grandmaster Level was developed by a Reiki Master in Berlin, Germany and a Qui Gong practitioner. They saw the Qui Gong energy could be channeled in the same way as that of Reiki and the new level of Grandmaster came into existence. Originally the level had no symbols, it was much later the symbols were channeled as it was though the symbols would bring in more energy and can be used for initiating people into the system.
Reiki Master/Reiki Master Teacher/Reiki Grand Master
Reiki Master Healer and Reiki Master Teacher was originally only one level and Mrs. Hawayo Takata would charge $10000 for initiating a master. In original Reiki there was no Grandmaster Level and Mrs. Takata never taught it. It was only later the master Level was divided into 2 parts Master Healer and Master Teacher, now popularly known as Level 3A and Level 3B. Some people divide it further into 3A,3B and 3C. Where in 3A only the master symbol is given, 3B attunement of Level 1 and 2 is taught and in 3C attunement of Master Level is taught.
Some people have taken it a notch up further and added to the confusion that a person can only attune Master Teachers if they are themselves Reiki Grand Master. Which is a wrong notion; if that was the case there would be no Reiki Teachers before Reiki Grandmaster level came into existence. I do not say Reiki Grandmaster is a level not needed, one may do so if they want to, but it is not necessary to attune someone to Reiki Master Teachership. There are many people who teach attunement to Teachersip only in Grandmaster level, which is not correct. Like I say a PhD. Scholar can always acts as a guide to a Research Scholar so they become a PhD. Scholar. A person need not do Post PhD to guide a Research Scholar to turn into a PhD scholar.
As per my opinion there is only one Reiki Grandmaster on this earth who is Phyllis Furumoto – Granddaughter of Mrs. Hawayo Takata, who sits in the Reiki Head office.
