Usui Holy Fire® Reiki Level I – Opening to the Flow

“the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step”

Reiki Level I  

I teach upon request – contact me to schedule your class!

At Level 1, the Initiation opens the student to an awareness of the flow of Reiki energy. Traditionally, the ‘outer’ focus of Level 1 Reiki is on the hands-on therapy at a purely physical level – both for self-treatment and for treating others. However, the ‘inner’ focus of Level 1 is about learning to become ‘a clear channel’ and begin to recognize the flow of Reiki energy. Level 1 is about developing your ‘Reiki muscles’ learning to ‘let go and let the energy flow’ and to ‘step out of the way’ – by learning to override the desire of one’s conscious and ego-mind to interfere in the healing process.  The goal is to simply let the Reiki phenomenon ‘happen’ without wishing something to be a certain way.

The attitude should be one of almost Zen-like, compassionate, detachment: “Sitting quietly, ‘not doing nor seeking after outcomes by believing you know what healing is needed (we cannot know this, only our ego thinks it does). 

The thing is, we really don’t know what specific healing is needed or even taking place – but Reiki does.   It is important to develop an attitude of “compassionate detachment from outcomes” and release the desire to “fix it” according to what we want to happen. Reiki has its own wisdom and intelligence and knows what’s needed and that is all we need to concern ourselves with.  Learning this early on will greatly enhance the quality of one’s journey with Reiki and keep your empathy in check.

Reiki Level I training provides all the basic skills and begins to build the foundation required to practice this special therapeutic art – primarily for self-healing, and also for treating others – family, friends, pets – even household plants. 
For those attuned to it, Reiki can be used as a form of body-centered meditation. It can also be an invaluable tool for spiritual growth and have a subtle yet profound effect on one’s personal development. While many people will choose to progress to Level 2 with its deeper energy connection and expanded healing techniques, and eventually to Master, know that if you’re not called to continue – this level is enough.

 Included in this class: 

  • The Reiki hand positions used by all Reiki practitioners for self-treatment and those for treating others.

While practice takes place during the class, it is expected that you will set aside additional time to practice after the class is over. Please commit to this additional time which should be one evening a week for several weeks, or its equivalent, to practice Reiki with one or more people from your Reiki class or with members of your family or friends.
