Reiki is the ancient art of healing through the use of energy. Reiki can be learned, practiced, and taught in different degrees. Generally, this movement is divided into three major categories, with each one in a higher level than the other.
The major divisions of Reiki training are simply referred to as first, second, and third degree Reiki levels.
First Degree Reiki
Reiki first degree is focused on teaching a student everything they have to know about the art of Reiki. Here, you will be taught what Reiki really means and what it can do for you. It is the time where masters will give their students an in-depth description about the Reiki. This includes where it came from, how to give it, and the proper way of using it. After all the concepts are taught as well as the mental, emotional, and physical natures of the student are thoroughly prepared, hands-on practice will take place.
Upon completion of the first degree Reiki training, a student will know how to use the Reiki energy for self-healing. This same energy can also be channeled to help other people, more specifically their friends and family. First degree Reiki can also stimulate personal and spiritual growth in a person.
This level is for people who simply want to discover what Reiki is. It is also for those who would like to learn how to heal themselves and others. After this level, you will be able to elevate your mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical state. It can effectively prevent illness in your family, as well as allowing you to heal through massage and physiotherapy.
Second Degree Reiki
Second degree Reiki leads you to the deeper understanding of the ancient method of Reiki healing. Here, you won’t just be able to heal diseases right on. You will be able to transcend time and space with your healing powers as well. You will also be introduced to the sacred symbols of Reiki at this level, which you can use to develop your awareness of self, healing others, and helping them with their lives as much as you improve yours.
During the second level of Reiki training, the flow of Reiki energy within you intensifies. You can further enhance your abilities through the use of the great Reiki symbols bestowed upon you. Distance healing or planetary healing becomes possible. As such, you can possibly heal another person even if they are ten thousand miles away from you. Furthermore, you will be able to improve your self-healing abilities as well as your spiritual and personal growth. You may be qualified to practice Reiki on others after the second degree of Reiki training.
Third Degree Reiki
The third degree of Reiki training is sometimes divided into two subgroups. The first group is the training where you become a Reiki master capable of teaching Reiki students. The second group is focused on merely improving yourself, with no training to be a teacher.
Third degree Reiki is only for the people who wish to further develop themselves into a Reiki Master. Here, they will have access to all the Reiki Master symbols and are allowed to perform attunement process on others. More complex healing cycles will be taught at this level, with the aim of expanding your Reiki influence.
The end goal of this last level of training is to make you a Reiki Master who can initiate, teach, and train others into the art of Reiki.
