Usui/Karuna Reiki Master, Homeopath, Bach Flower Registered Practitioner
Although usually invisible to the untrained naked eye, its force is ever present and powerful. It has been likened to the wind. The wind itself cannot be seen, yet its power and effect are obvious as it makes waves on the long grass of the meadow.
"Rei" refers to the unlimited, all knowing, all loving energy that is the creator of life itself. Western culture has named it the Universe, Holy Spirit, Light, God, Great Spirit, Lord, Creator.
Reiki then, is the energy of the Universe, of God. It is the energy that creates, that grows, that heals, that loves. Since it is directly from God, it brings only that which is for the Highest Good: Love, Light, Growth, Healing and Wisdom. It sometimes works in mysterious ways: It does what it has to for the benefit of each person, even if it is not what was hoped for.
Trust in the Universe that it always brings
what is appropriate for the highest good. Reiki can never do any
harm. It only works toward the growth and development of the soul
purpose of each individual. Reiki is often described as Spiritually
Guided Life Force Energy. A person who can do Reiki, channels this
energy for the betterment of Body, Mind and Spirit.

First Degree Reiki - Reiki I
The first level of Reiki is the
actual "laying on of hands". The healer places their hands on the healee
and channels Reiki. The healer receives this ability in the sacred initiation
ceremony given by the Reiki Master. The healer learns the history of Reiki,
benefits of Reiki, receives the attunement, learns the hand positions for
healing themselves and others, learns to do a short treatment as well as
chakra balancing. There is also a practice session.
Second Degree Reiki or Reiki
The next step is receiving the attunement
and learning three sacred symbols used to increase the power of Reiki;
focus on mental/emotional issues; and send Reiki long distance.
Advanced Reiki or Reiki IIIa
The student is given another powerful
sacred symbol leading to an even greater connection with the Universe.
They also learn how to set up a Reiki Grid, meet their Reiki guide and
how to do a type of psychic surgery.
Reiki Master or Reiki III
Two more symbols are learned and
the student is given the key to the sacred initiation ceremony. Once a
student is initiated into Reiki III, they have the power to initiate others
into all levels of Reiki. This is a great honour and responsibility. Reiki
Masters usually dedicate their lives to Reiki.
Karuna Reiki One
Karuna Reiki Two
Four more symbols connect higher
and lower self, improve learning ability, communication, grounding, create
priorities, reclaim power, heal codependence, empower your goals, heal
insomnia, fear and panic, among other issues.
Karuna Reiki Master

You learn one further symbol and learn to do attunements and initiate others.
