The Reiki initiations/attunement process enables the recipient to permanently open and connect to the Universal Reiki healing energies on all levels (mental, physical, emotional and psychically) and also clears and balances many important energy channels within the body
Reiki has three formal levels of initiation - training and practice of each enhances growth and mastery of Reiki. Attunements are given by a Reiki Master.
The Reiki attunements are always a special spiritual experience for the receiver and can cause similar feelings for the Master.
Time between attunements ?
I'll mention this here again as there is controversy within the Reiki community as to the length of time between Reiki initiations.
A number of practitioners believe that there should be a significant period of time between levels. Some suggest Reiki I and Reiki II, twenty-one days apart - and a year between Reiki II and Reiki III ("master/teacher"). Other teachers allow students to take Reiki I & II & III within a few days and some combine all three Reiki levels in one attunement, claiming that by connecting a person totally to Reiki allows them to grow at their own pace.
I fully agree with the latter - that's the reason why, I started the reikisecrets.com website. I feel some Reiki masters use the concept of long periods of waiting to warrant charging high fees at each Initiation level, obviously that's just my opinion!
I personally initiate all my students within one morning performing a "Gassho" meditation in-between each level.

Brief "summary" of Reiki Levels Reiki I:

There are four attunements at this level. This level deals primarily with the physical realm.
