Charleston Reiki Training & Certification
Charleston Reiki I, II and Master Certification
Discovering Reiki was one of the most positively transformational experiences of my life.
I had always been connected to Spirit, but the connection I felt after my first Reiki attunement, to the Universal Flow, was visceral. And it only continues to unfold in layers of positive thought, emotion, and action, and be present in my life every day!
This ancient Japanese method of healing uses energy to balance the body and mind, and benefits both the Charleston Reiki practitioner and their clients.
Some of the benefits of Reiki are:
Stress reduction and relaxation - which triggers the body’s natural healing abilities
Boosts the immune system – promoting the body’s natural healing ability
Promotes better sleep
Relieves physical pain, migraines, chronic fatigue, asthma, arthritis, to name a few
Speeds recovery from illness, reduces side affects from medications
Brings inner harmony and peace
Balances the mind and emotions
Enhances learning and mental clarity
Supports healing of emotional wounds
Alleviates fear, frustration, and anger
Strengthens personal relationships, allows deeper connections
Offers relief of emotional distress, sorrow, grief
Enhances your capacity to love.
In fact, this heart opening, loving energy is by far the greatest gift of Reiki. Feeling more love and acceptance of self and others is the key that unlocks all doors of possibility.
The list of benefits of Reiki are countless and cumulative, therefore the more reiki healing you experience, the clearer and cleaner your energy. The Charleston Reiki practitioner is a conduit for this energy flowing through them to the client, and both parties receive the benefits!
Becoming a Charleston Reiki practitioner has opened my life in so many ways.
The opportunity to share this amazing gift with others, and witness how it transforms their way of being continues to be a true blessing.
Reiki I Certification
Reiki Level 1: The First Degree
Level 1 is a practitioner's initiation into Reiki and is open to anyone. The focus during Level 1 is on opening the energy channels on a physical level, allowing the practitioner to connect to the universal life force energy, which flows from the cosmos through the crown of the head, and down to the heart and hands.
The goal of the Level 1 Reiki is to master self-reiki, become attuned
to the energy of reiki, and incorporate this into their daily lives. Students are encouraged to focus on practicing Reiki on themselves, thereby working through their own obstacles. In Reiki Level 1 you will receive an attunement to the reiki energy. Many experience physical symptoms of energy in their palms after the first attunement — including tingling, coolness or heat. The Level 1 course also includes an overview of the history of Reiki, hand placements, and self and group practice.
I teach and practice Intuitive Reiki, and when you embark on your Reiki training with me, we will dive a little deeper on this subject. We will discuss the practice of how to open to your own innate intuitive abilities, how to shift your awareness to the subtle energy fields, and the process of tuning into and working with your own energy fields.
Many Reiki Masters teach Reiki I & II levels in the same weekend. This is not the way Reiki levels were initially taught. I believe the student is best served by focusing first on learning about reiki energy, and gaining experience by working with the energy on themselves. The student must first learn to clear and overcome their own blockages, integrate the energy – which is an unfolding process, and incorporate the mind-body-spirit connection in themselves, before directing this energy onto others. This can be a profound and life changing experience! If you allow it, this can be the most important step on your journey to awakening. This approach is most honoring to the student – allowing them time and space to adjust to the newly awakened energy within.
After practicing and incorporating the Reiki I energy for a minimum of 30 days, you can progress to Reiki Level II training.
Reiki II Certification
Reiki Level 2: Second Degree
In Reiki Level II we will focus on practicing Reiki on others, and experience an expanded opening of the energy channels. Additionally, students receive the Reiki Symbols and Level 2 attunement. The Reiki symbols allow the practitioner to connect more deeply to the universal energy, as well as draw on the
qualities that the symbols represent. This includes the ability to provide "Distance Reiki", or send healing energy to individuals, wherever they may be. The Level 2 attunement “turns up the flow” of the Reiki energy by opening up the central channel even more, with an emphasis on the Heart Chakra.
In our Reiki Level II class, we will also be learning about the chakra system and energy anatomy. This is not typically covered as part of the standard reiki training, but as you will discover in working with energy, people often experience emotional and/or physical healing during a reiki treatment. By understanding and working with your own chakras, you will be better equipped to support your clients with this process.
Because I teach and practice Intuitive Reiki, when you embark on your Reiki training with me, you will also receive a 3rd Eye (Intuition Center) Chakra awakening. I feel it is important to clear this channel and establish a trusting relationship with your sixth sense. This process opens the channels to your innate intuitive knowing, allowing you to feel, sense, know information carried through the energetic field. This will assist you on your path to understanding self and others.
This class will include hands-on practice time, and a test before certification. You will receive a certificate to display upon completion.
After completion of this class, you will be well equipped as a Reiki Practitioner and can begin sharing the gift of reiki with others. This could even be the start of a new career as an energy healer!
To support you on your journey, I provide ongoing support and opportunities to practice the gift of Reiki on others through our weekly reiki clinics or monthly reiki shares. I encourage you to begin sharing your gifts with friends, family, pets and paying clients, if you so desire!
Reiki Master Certification
Reiki Level 3: Third Degree & Reiki Master
In many courses, the Third Degree and Reiki Master are the same designations. However some teachers separate Level 3 from Reiki Master, in order to emphasize the difference between receiving the Master attunement, from being trained in attuning new students or practitioners.
The Reiki Master Level is traditionally considered the teacher's level —a practitioner who has received the energy and knowledge to attune new Reiki practitioners. Many receive the Master attunement, along with the corresponding symbol, yet don't feel comfortable or practiced in properly attuning others — hence the distinction between Third Degree and Reiki Master.
Becoming a Reiki Master also represents a deep commitment to the Reiki practice, and at least one year of active practice should pass between achieving the Second Degree status and Master Level. Because the Master Level is taught in a wide range of methods, you should meditate on which path feels right for you and spend time and consideration in selecting a Master.
If you are interested in pursuing the Master path, I would be honored to share with you the details of our curriculum, upon request, and discuss any questions you have. Please contact me HERE for more info.
