  1. I have been getting this vision of a chinese old man ever since I had my second degree.I am A Reiki Master .What does this mean and I have not been attuned to Imara Reiki.

  2. Please send info on Imara Reiki and how to be attuned in Imara Reiki. I have received master attunement in traditional Usui Reiki.

  3. would like to be attuned to Imara Reiki. I am in Florida. Can it be a distance attunement? I am Reiki Master now but would love to power up!
    Thank you..

  4. I was wondering if La ho Chi is the same as LAO TZU…who is also a White haired oriental guy carrying a staff, & an orb. In fact I think I already have my answer. Seems I have always been drawn to this guy, but know next to nothing about him. There’s a figure of this guy sitting next to my figure of Ardhanishvara right behind me….Been there for years. It was given to me by mother just before she passed.

  5. I too, would love to be attuned once I have completed my Master/Teacher class in two weeks. Would I need to wait and practice as a Master for a certain amount of time before I can be attuned to Imara Reiki? Thank you. Namaste
