Origin of the $10,000.00 Fee
As time went by, Mrs. Takata contemplated the need to train other Reiki Masters. She realized that the Japanese concept of respect might be difficult to instill in the Western mind. Because Reiki Mastership is so easily learned, being simply passed on during the Reiki Master attunement, she felt that Westerners might not value it. So she devised a plan of charging a large sum of money for those wanting to become Reiki Masters. She felt that money was something that Western people understood and respected and this would help create the appreciation and gratitude for Reiki that was needed. She decided that $10,000 would be a large enough sum to instill the respect needed for the Reiki Master attunement. She also set the fees for Reiki I at $275 and Reiki II at $500. These high fees have continued to be charged by some Reiki Masters, but many are now considering a lower fee structure that makes it possible for anyone who feels guided to do so to become a Reiki Master. 

Choosing a Teacher
Once you have found a teacher, the simplest and best advice is to follow your heart. Listen to your inner voice ... Is this connection right for me? If your approach is analytical, see the references at the end of the page. Or start asking questions ... 

When you decide that you wish to the study Reiki, we recommend you consider the following questions in choosing a teacher. 

Questions to Ask about Reiki Training

For yourself:

  • Should I study Reiki at this time? 
  • What inspired me to want to be Reiki attuned?
  • What called me to contact this person?
  • Do I feel in my heart that I should study with this person? 
  • Is this person a good learning partner for me? 
  • Am I willing to commit to regular practice so that this method (indeed, any method!) may yield results? 
  • Other thoughts about Reiki and the process
  • Would there be anything keeping your heart’s desire of receiving reiki? (such as time, money or self doubt)
  • Also please include any other information that you may think is helpful.

For a Reiki teacher:
What do you cover in your classes? Reiki one includes the history of Usui, the energy of reiki, the principles of reiki and self care. Reiki II understanding of the Reiki II symbols, distant healing, and more in-depth forms of healing. The Reiki Master’s class takes place over 6 months, meeting monthly for expanded learning of the Reiki way of life and culminating with a weekend workshop.

How many hours of class time is there? Reiki I – 8 hours, Reiki II – 12 hours, Reiki Master is a minimum of 5 hours a month practicing at the center, plus practice on your own, assignments, reading and ending with a weekend workshop. 

How much time is instructional and how much is hands-on practice? Hands on practice is available each month with a Reiki Master, with a minimum of attending one time per month. Instructional time is outlined above.

Will this training initiate me into, or progress me within the Usui Reiki lineage? Ask them to explain their lineage. The Reiki Lineage is Dr. Usui, Hayashi, Takata, Beth Gray, Marilyn Miller, Cathline Michaels, Karen Craig, MeeshaKeena (Jacqueline Kennedy), and YOU

What should I expect from an attunement? A transmission of Universal Life Force energy that will help your consciousness grow.

What are your fees and why do some Masters charge large amounts of money? 
The tuition for Reiki I $250, for Reiki II $325, Reiki Master/ART training is $175 monthly. Arrangements for payment can be made. Each Master will charge what they feel is right in their heart. As an exchange should be made, it is easiest for this exchange to be monetary. This also enables our Masters to make a living at what they love to do.

How long should I wait between levels of Reiki training? That will depend on how much energy and commitment you put into it. It is possible to receive all three levels in less than a year. Follow your calling.

What is the availability for support from you or other Masters after I take this training? 

The Reiki Energy Healing Center has been providing Reiki training for over 10 years. Students may retake any Reiki

Class with paid tuition. Hands-on training is available for those wishing to pursue a career teaching Reiki. 

“Masters in Motion” provides students with an opportunity to practice with other Reiki Practitioners, share in

each others' knowledge and network.

Is there a Reiki support group in my area, or can you help me establish one? The REHC provides group or private sessions to support you on your Reiki journey·

Does the teacher respond in a loving manner that is supportive and empowering (for you)? This will you have to answer yourself =)

Growing with Reiki
Learning Reiki is a good starting point for experiencing and working with healing energy and a wonderful method for deepening awareness of universal energy. In general, Reiki complements other healing methods and spiritual practices. There are no hard and fast rules about how to approach starting Reiki and starting healing. Again, listen to your heart and you will be guided in choosing the right experiences and teacher(s) for you. 

Once you have learned a healing technique, the work begins. To develop your understanding of, and sensitivity in, Reiki it is a good idea to devote time to regular practice, find a supportive teacher and practice group and pursue continuing study. Make sure that you arrange circumstances so that you can be nurtured in your healing and growth. 

Keep your eyes on your goals, your mind in your heart and take things one step at a time. 

Love and light to you in your journey

After you have read this and would be interested in Reiki, please send me any other questions you may have,

as well as, your response to the questions for yourself. 

I look forward to hearing from you.

Bright Blessings,

Can Anyone Learn Reiki?
The ability to learn Reiki is not dependent on intellectual capacity, nor does one have to be able to meditate. It does not take years of practice. It is simply passed on from the teacher to the student. As soon as this happens, one has and can do Reiki. Because of this, it is easily learned by anyone. 

Reiki is a pure form of healing not dependent on individual talent or acquired ability. Because of this, the personality of the healer is less likely to cloud the significance of the experience. The feeling of being connected directly to Spirit's healing love and protection is clearly apparent. 

The Attunement
Reiki is not taught in the way other healing techniques are taught. It is transferred to the student by the Reiki Master during an attunement process. This process opens the crown, heart, and palm chakras and creates a special link between the student and the Reiki source. 

The Reiki attunement is a powerful spiritual experience. The attunement energies are channeled into the student through the Reiki Master. The process is guided by the Rei or Spirit-consciousness and makes adjustments in the process depending on the needs of each student. The attunement is also attended by Reiki guides and other spiritual beings who help implement the process. Many report having mystical experiences involving personal messages, healings, visions, and past life experiences. 

The attunement can also increase psychic sensitivity. Students often report experiences involving: opening of the third eye, increased intuitive awareness, and other psychic abilities after receiving a Reiki attunement. 

Once you have received a Reiki attunement, you will have Reiki for the remainder of your life. It does not wear off and you can never lose it. While one attunement is all you need for each level to be attuned to that level, additional attunements bring benefit. Experimentation has found that additional attunements of the same level add to the value of that level. These benefits include refinement of the Reiki energy one is channeling, increased strength of the energy, healing of personal problems, clarity of mind, increased psychic sensitivity, and a raised level of consciousness. 

The Reiki attunement can start a cleansing process that affects the physical body as well as the mind and emotions. Toxins that have been stored in the body may be released along with feelings and thought patterns that are no longer useful. Therefore, a process of purification prior to the attunement is recommended to improve the benefit one receives. See below for specific instructions on preparing for an attunement. 

Preparing for an Attunement
In order to improve the results you receive during the attunement, a process of purification is recommended. This will allow the attunement energies to work more efficiently and create greater benefits for you. The following steps are optional. Follow them if you feel guided to do so. 

1. Refrain from eating meat, fowl or fish for three days prior to the attunement. These foods often contain drugs in the form of penicillin and female hormones and toxins in the form of pesticides and heavy metals that make your system sluggish and throw it out of balance. 

2. Consider a water or juice fast for one to three days especially if you already are a vegetarian or have experience with fasting. 

3. Minimize your use of coffee and caffeine drinks or stop completely. They create imbalances in the nervous and endocrine systems. Use no caffeine drinks on the day of the attunement. 

4. Use no alcohol for at least three days prior to the attunement. 

5. Minimize or stop using sweets. Eat no chocolate. 

6. If you smoke, cut back, and smoke as little as possible on the day of the attunement. 

7. Meditate an hour a day for a least a week using a style you are familiar with or simply spend this time in silence. 

8. Reduce or eliminate time watching TV, listening to the radio, and reading newspapers. 

9. Go for quiet walks, spend time with nature, and get moderate exercise. 

10. Give more attention to the subtle impressions and sensations within and around; contemplate their meaning. 

11. Release all anger, fear, jealousy, hate, worry, etc. up to the light. Create a sacred space within and around you. 

12. By receiving an attunement you will become part of a group of people who are using Reiki to heal themselves, and each other, and who are working together to heal the Earth. You will also be receiving help from Reiki guides and other spiritual beings who are also working towards these goals. While Reiki is not a religion, you may prepare your mind with intention work and pray in a religious mode comfortable to you to prepare to open to higher spiritual energies and experiences. 

If you have any questions, please contact your Reiki Teacher prior to the class.

Post Attunement "Detoxification"
It is recommended that you drink lots of water after an attunement. Many people find that they need to increase water intake permanently after being attuned to any system of healing energy. Attunements and treatments begin the recipient's personal healing immediately. This sometimes shows up as symptoms of physical or emotional release such as an excess of gas, diarrhea or moodiness. 

This has been called detoxification. Most people do not have any noticeable effects of this kind. A few people have reported a lot of emotional processing for up to 3 weeks or 21 days after an Attunement. Some people report having unusually vivid dreams just after the attunement.

Anyone who has a detoxification reaction is encouraged to self treat with Reiki often and to contact their Reiki teacher for help. Any unusual ,severe, or continuing discomfort should be referred to an appropriate medical professional. It may not have any direct relationship to the attunement at all . Anyone getting Reiki treatments and or attunements is encouraged to drink lots of after. This often reduces or eliminates any detoxification symptoms. 

Everyone should be reminded that in some cases the release of toxins or energetic or physical realignments will cause them to feel worse for a short time before they feel better. Some people may feel somewhat uncomfortable when chronic physical, emotional or mental conditions are alleviated because they are unaccustomed to feeling well. 

Normal reactions to events that occur and emotions that surface during the period just after attunement are sometimes attributed to detoxification when they might really be simply a freer expression and an enhanced awareness of feelings which can be an effect of attunements. 

The attunement process used by the Center in all Reiki classes is a combination of the Usui system and a special Tibetan technique. It is thought that Reiki originated in Tibet, therefore, the use of the Tibetan technique and symbols creates a stronger connection with the origins of Reiki. The addition of the Tibetan attunement technique to the Usui system of attunements has greatly improved their quality. This unique attunement process was developed over time to be more powerful and to bring in a wider range of attunement energies than the original Usui system. In Reiki III the Usui/Tibetan method of giving attunements is taught along with the original Usui system of attunements. 

Additions the Center has made to the original Usui system came from inner guidance and experience in spiritual development. They were added only after they had been thoroughly tested and were proven to enhance the Usui system.
