Reiki Master, Robyn, and I like to wear bracelets with
bells on them, so there is this delightful tinkling
sound as we draw the vortices during the attunement.
The attached graphic makes a very simple diagram for
doing attunements - it can be printed on a small card
for reference, and makes attuning so simple, even
little children can do them -- even if they cannot
insertion of each symbol, draw a vortex with one hand
above the other, then blow a short puff of Dragon
Breath to empower the symbol blowing the Breath of
Life into the corresponding chakra.
above the Crown Chakra,
draw the White Light JohRei
symbol descending into the energetic body of the
initiate. While doing this, repeat the name of
the symbol, and asking that the recipient become a
clear and perfect channel. The energy of this symbol
and this chakra is Violet
and White, and dissipates gently into the aura.
still standing behind the initiate, begin
drawing the Tibetan Fire
Serpent, starting from the base of the
spine - Root Chakra,
spiral and upward, just as Kundalini energy rising. I
draw the top of the symbol in a drawing away motion
from the Third Eye - as if to leave that doorway open.
front of the student, draw the Usui
Cho Ku Rei - the symbol of empowerment.
Gently press the symbol into the Third
Eye, drawing downward, intending that the
empowerment flow throughout the body. Vortex. Puff.
Throat Chakra -
center of communication, is naturally linked to the
-- the symbol for sending thoughts over
distance. Draw this symbol in front of the
throat, dispersing it throughout the entire body.
Draw Se Hei Ki in
front of the Heart Chakra
-- gently pushing in perfect balance and
harmony, and dispersing the energy of Unconditional
Love throughout the energy field. Vortex.
Plexus - center of fear and the
opposite - truth -- a symbol that has always
looked to me like a lamp -- the lamp of Hermes, and
the lamp of Dr. Usui, standing on a street corner in
Kyoto, looking for an honest man to learn Reiki. Dai
Ko Mio! Treat the symbol as the
others, pushing in, dispersing throughout, and with
the blessing that this initiate shall be free from
fear / delusion. Vortex. Puff.
Chakra, governing Creativity and where
resides all the fears of tribe and separation.
Visually, this symbol suggests to me, ego leaping into
the abyss Push it in, release throughout the body.
In front of the student, draw each
of the symbols one time into the palms, tap these in
three times, close the hands together and again clap
them between my own palms, intending that these hands
become empowered for the transfer of Reiki.
Repeat the Fire
Serpent motion from the front this time,
again drawing Kundalini energy up from the Root
Chakra and upward through the Crown Chakra.
Stepping back, release all of
the Dragon Breath (Violet Breath) that has been held
throughout the process. This is the final empowerment.
Congratulate the new Reiki Master.
