What is actually a Reiki attunement?
We all were attuned to the life force, sanjeevani (we call it at present Reiki, the name given by Dr Usui) by the almighty God, at the time of the creation of the Universe. We all were aware of our connection to the Supreme power. We all were aware of the energy and it’s use in our lives and purpose of aatma being in the body, but by the passage of time we (aatma) were overruled by Mana, it starting manipulating budhi, and over years and years, it was successful in getting a victory over budhi. The aatma which was connected to god lost the track. The ego (ahankaar) took the place of aatma and become the driver of body. It started thinking I am the creator and can rule the whole Universe. Like this the negativities started coagulating in the body which started taking the form of diseases- psychic, emotional, social, mental. The man totally became unaware of the life-force which was the supreme gift of the supreme power to him.
Now what is attunement?
We buy a guitar from the market. It is tuned to all the nodes. When someone play it, it composes the beautiful music. But after few days the wires(cords) which are made of metal get loose or tight. They need to be tuned either you have to learn to tune them or to take your guitar to specialist to get it tuned.
The exactly same with the mankind as I shared, at the time Supreme being created us, we all were attuned to the God, our cords were attached to Him without any Knick, but as the time passed the cords were entangled. Few of them were blocked and other were totally broken and we forgot the way to repair, mend or tune them. We need a spiritual healer to mend them who helps to remove the blockages to mend them.
We all are cosmic beings as the way we are related to universe outwardly the same way we are related to universe inwardly.
Now comes the attunement part
Attunement is the tuning of cosmic cords i.e. mending the cords to make a connection with higher self.
How it can be done?
The very first step is the initiation.
Initiation is the process when a sanjeevani healer, Reiki master, an energy worker, light worker introduces the student to light, reiki, life-force or sanjeevani.
The Reiki master, sanjeevani healers, light workers help the students feel the energy in and around them by some techniques, meditations and by some of the exercises. They guide them to practice Reiki.
The initiation alone is not sufficient, it is only the base of Reiki practice and after that the student has to question his or her identity every moment (why am I here? Who am I?), has to sieve his/her thoughts and to surrender every moment to HIM and practice it on a daily basis.
It can be in person, it can be self attunement (as Dr Usui) or it can be distance also.
Initiation is a very general part. What is more important is the person’s INTENTION, how is he taking it, how is the person feeling it, practicing it and bringing it to life.
Getting initiated to Reiki by a master is not all. As I already shared we all were initiated and attuned by God at the time of creation of Universe.
The regular practice make us to establish a connection with God. This whole process is called attunement. After a regular Reiki practice one gets attuned to the life force and God.
With his guidance and our intuitions we are able to heal ourself at physical, mental and spiritual level and can also heal all other beings by using the universal life force.
