Question by Joanne Dorme:
My name is Joanne Dorme, I’m Reiki 2, and sometimes I feel it strongly, and sometimes I don’t. I was wondering – I always feel better after an attunement. How often should we get an attunement, and is it necessary to get an attunement, or is it just something in me that’s blocked so that I don’t feel it all the time as strongly as I do after an attunement?
Answer by Haripriya Suraj:
This is Haripriya. To answer your question, the Reiki attunement opens your chakras. This is like unclogging a water pipe that has been clogged for a long time. The moment the pipe is unclogged, the water flows through it with great force. But in a clear pipe, the flow of the water is not as forceful. Similarly, the Reiki attunement opens up your chakras and this causes Reiki to gush through your body. Therefore, your experience of the energy is stronger right after the attunement.
Once opened up, different people experience the energy in different ways. Some experience it as heat or warmth, some experience it as tingling or sensations of cold, and a few people experience nothing.
There is no right or wrong, and whatever you feel is perfectly fine. Which means, not feeling the energy is perfectly fine as well. Because once you’re attuned, you will have the energy flowing through you irrespective of whether you feel it or not.
Having said that I’d also like to add that daily Reiki practice helps you develop sensitivity to the energy. So, if you haven’t been regular with practice, the first thing you need to do is to give yourself Reiki every day. It’s OK even if you don’t feel the energy in the beginning. With regular practice you can be certain that you will begin to feel the energy.
