Reiki Attunement required?

I have been studying reiki through various books for a couple months now. I’ve read through and practiced it on myself, my family, and my friends. Each book mentioned the attunement, but not in detail, and it made it seem like attunment happens when you begin reiki. So then i researched it and walah, apparently i’m supposed to be attuned before i am capable of practicing, but honestly, everyone I’ve given sessions to say that they feel immensly better than when we started. Is attunment required to truly practice reiki, or is it for only those who are unaware of their psychic abilities because Ive known all my life that I could sense things and I’ve occasionaly dreampt of future events, and even seen in the middle of the day, spirits that have passed.
ok, first of all im not speaking to demons, you moron, im not asking for anyone’s help with how ive adapted over the years to my connection with energies and things that most people can’t understand, and i have studied the practices of reiki, i know all about chakras, hand positions, and the origins of the whole practice itself, i am not a stupid person meddling with black magic, reiki is all healing through touch, all i want to know is if attunement is required because i have read in many texts that for people who truly wish to heal the person they are giving a session, attunment does not matter if you intentions are fueled by strong will and belief.

you are correct. we are already connected to the energy that is part of the system of Reiki – it’s the energy of life. Attunements are used to enhance the capacity of the student to sense and channel Reiki energy to themselves and others. some people develop the ability to do this without an attunement. that’s true. the attunement process was not developed by the founder of Reiki. It was put together by others to enhance the progress of their students.(If you’ve heard the name “Hayashi”, he’s the culprit). the people you have been working with might certainly be feeling… Read more »

Who gave Mikao Usui his attunement? “In 1914 Usui undertook a meditation retreat so he might receive an answer to some problems he was having in his life. We believe he might have included, as part of his focus, his “vow” in this retreat / request. As the story has it, Usui went to a meditation spot at Mount Kurama-yama and undertook an intensive practice utilizing some the practices he had studied. During his “satori” experience, he came to the realization of how working with divine “Ki” energy might assist him in some of his difficulties. Eventually, through the years… Read more »

slight disclaimer on my opinion. I am not trained and do not practice reiki in any way, I have read a little about the basics. now, i have read something on here that was later removed of someone having had some “problems” because of having been reiki attuned, and while I wasn’t entirely confident in the accuracy of what was said, it seems interesting. you certainly do *not* have to be “attuned” to that method or any such thing in order to heal via psychic energy, do auric manipultaion/adjustment, ect. IMO the idea that you would *have* to do it… Read more »

Reiki (霊気 or レイキ, Reiki? IPA: /ˈreɪkiː/) is a spiritual practice used as a complementary therapy developed in 1922 by Mikao Usui. After three weeks of fasting and meditating on Mount Kurama, in Japan, Usui claimed to receive the ability of ‘healing without energy depletion’. Practitioners use a technique similar to the laying on of hands, which they say will channel “healing energy” (a form of ki) through their palms. Neither the existence of ki nor any mechanism for its manipulation are scientifically accepted, and the evidence base does not support the efficacy of reiki or its recommendation for use… Read more »

Maybe the people you practiced on said they felt better because they didn’t want to hurt your feelings.
You can’t actually accomplish Reiki until you’ve been attuned. That’s an important part of being able to channel the healing energy, regardless of how spiritual you are.

Self-attunment is possible, but you have to do it intentionally.

Placebo effects require no attunment, and that’s all Reiki is.
