Reiki Level I – Shoden “first teaching”

At Level 1, the Initiation/Placement (attunement) opens the student to the 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’ for the flow of Reiki energy. Level 1 is about learning to ‘let go and let the energy flow’ and to ‘step out of the way’ – by learning to override the desire (of ones conscious and ego-mind) to interfere in the healing process.  The goal is to simply let the Reiki phenomenon ‘happen’.

The attitude should be one of almost Zen-like, compassionate, detachment: “Sitting quietly, ‘not doing nor seeking after outcomes’, NOT believing you know what healing is needed (we cannot know this, only our ego thinks it does.).  “If healing happens, great – it happens, if it doesn’t, well it doesn’t.”   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 YOUR opinion.  Reiki knows what’s needed and that’s all we need to concern ourselves with.  Leaning this early on will greatly enhance the quality of one’s journey with Reiki.

Reiki Level I training provides all the basic skills and 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, the phenomenon that is Reiki can be utilized 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.
