Usui Reiki Master Teacher / Practitioner
Why do a Combined Reiki 1 and 2 Course
is one of the most common questions asked by students of all levels. I
pray that this article helps more students understand why I believe it is
essential for most people to take Reiki I and II together.
hear much about courses being taught as 'Traditional Reiki'. But what does
'Traditional' mean? Surely it means what was originally taught. Usui
Sensei rediscovered Reiki in 1922. We also
know that it was Usui's student, Dr Hayashi, who introduced the system of
Reiki I, II and III; and that it was the students of Mrs Takata (who was
Dr Hayashi's student) who introduced the 'waiting time' between Reiki I,
II and III. This means that Reiki has been 'non-traditional' ever since
Usui passed over. Therefore only Usui taught Reiki I and II at the same
time. So, if we truly wish to learn Reiki in the Traditional Usui Sensei
manner, we should learn Reiki I and II together.
believe that for most students this should be the opposite question:
'Would Reiki I and II attunements on separate I and II courses be too
weak?' Many students come to Reiki after already being healers or into an
aspect of spirituality. These students may find that they gain little from
the Reiki I attunements - they are already there!
it is possible for an attunement to be inappropriate for a student, but I
find this happens in a small minority of cases. And if it is the case,
then even Reiki I will be negative. For example, maybe paranoid,
spiritually disturbed or possessed persons should not have even Reiki I
is the duty of the Reiki Master not to take on every student. Instead, if
negative health aspects of a student are discovered, the Reiki Master
should discuss the attunement suitability.
scientific research shows that different conditions have different
vibrations; and that similarly different vibrations are therefore needed
to heal them. Most healing methods in the Western world only channel the
one spiritual vibration. But the power of Reiki lies in the conscious
choice of which of three symbols to use. Thus, if we are giving Reiki to a
schizophrenic or bereaved person, we can deliberately choose the
mental/emotional symbol. This 'pre-programmes' the energy - and informs
the guides, angels etc. of what is needed. This conscious
'pre-programming' can only be achieved after attending a Reiki II course.
