Article by Reiki Master Sunetra Dasgupta
Hello, Beautiful Souls!
I am so happy to be back with my next article, though in this article I am only catering to Reiki Teachers or people who are planning to get initiated to Reiki Teachership soon. When one becomes a Reiki Teacher, we are taught about the symbols, how to give attunement for various levels, ethics etc. also one of the most important thing which is taught in this level is Self-Attunement, which sadly not many Reiki Teachers practice!
The main purpose of an attunement or Reiju (pronounced Ray-joo) is to raise the student’s energy level to re-connect to the true inner self (soul), plus strengthen the connection to universal spiritual energy.
One may say that being a Reiki Teacher, you are already connected to the source. Which is absolutely true, but when you attune yourself again, it will act just as a booster.
There are 2 types of self attunement that you can give yourself
Healing Self Attunement is an excellent form of removing a chunk of blockage together with force at one go. We are Reiki healers, but there is some or the other area of our life which we can make better. Healing attunement can be given to selves, to release karma, unresolved emotions, let go of something or simply manifest our wishes. I recommend giving one’s own self-healing attunement twice a week, as an attunement takes 24 hours to fully activate.
Degree Self Attunement is when you attune yourself to any level of degree (You can self attune yourself to all the degrees of Reiki including teachership/healing modality to which you are initiated provided you are a Reiki teacher). I recommend doing this once a month, as I have experienced that with different degrees of Reiki, different areas of our life gets highlighted or sorted out:
- Reiki Level 1 attunement helps us in clearing our physical problems to a very large extent.
- Level 2 works on our emotional phases of life ex. Inner child Issue or loss of someone special, the grief which we are not ready to acknowledge etc.
- The Third level for me personally works on our karma and cellular level.
- Teachership helps us for cleansing our soul.
So apart from healing attunement, the degree attunements also work really well, and I have seen many changes in my life while doing so. I let my intuition decide which degree of Reiki, I should attune myself to. There is no hard and fast rule, I have to start from Level 1, I can start from Level 2 too. I let the Universe guide me.
There are various methods by which you can attune yourself. It can be by a Chi Ball, teddy bear or even a pillow. If you don’t wish to use a Chi Ball or if you don’t have a pillow or a teddy, your body works the best. You can consider your thighs as your body and knees as head and give yourself attunement; If you giving yourself initiation attunement, use one of the hands to represent both your hands!
The reason I am not writing my attunement process is because, different teachers have different methods to give attunement, and I firmly believe, that none of them are wrong. Also, I feel as we give ourselves Self Attunement, it helps us to connect with our higher self in a better manner, and there is not a more beautiful relationship than the one you share with your higher self.
So a shout to all The Reiki Teachers out there, show some love to yourself and give yourself an attunement, and feel the Reiki energy flowing like a tide of wave within you.
Happy Reiking people!
Blessed Be <3
