Reiki is not taught in the way other healing techniques are taught. The ability to channel Reiki energy is transferred to the student by the Reiki Master during an attunement process.
In Holy Fire II Classes, the attunement has evolved into Placements, and Ignitions which accomplish the same thing as attunements with improved results.
The Reiki attunement is a powerful spiritual experience and is the most important part of a Reiki Class. The process is guided by REI or spiritual consciousness. It fine tunes the experience for each student depending on what is needed.
Some report having mystical experiences involving personal messages, healing, visions, and past-life experiences. The attunement can also increase psychic sensitivity. Students often report an opening of the third eye, increased intuitive awareness, or other psychic experiences after receiving a Reiki Attunement. However, not everyone has these experiences. The meaningful experiences usually take place when the attunement energy works quickly and crates a rapid change in consciousness. For some students it’s more appropriate for the attunement energy to work slowly over a long period of time, which can sometimes extend even beyond the time when the attunement is being physically given by the teacher.
Often when this happens, the experience isn’t as dramatic. Some students acknowldege a feeling of relaxation, even during the attunement. Because of this, it’s important to remember that what one’s experiences during the attunement isn’t the main focus. Rather, it’s the purpose of the attunement that is more important which is the new ability to channel Reiki Energy. This becomes apparent when the student begins to practice using Reiki on others.
Remember that to understand the value of one’s Reiki Energy, on must not only be aware of what is felt by the practitioner while giving a session, but more importantly, what the client experiences.

Attunement Cleansing Process
The Reiki attunement can start a cleansing process that affects the physical body as well as the mind and emotions. Toxins that have been stored in the body may be released along with feelings and thought patterns that are no longer useful. You could experience a headache, stomach ache, weakness, or aches and pains. These are the effects of the toxins being released from areas where they had been stored and is part of the process of releasing them from the body.
Changes can also take places in quality of your emotions and in your consciousness that indicate the release of emotions toxins. These experiences are actually a sign that healing is taking place. This does not always happen for everyone after a Reiki attunement but when it does, it is important to understand what is happening so you support its completion.
Whenever change takes place, even if it is good, a period of adjustment is necessary so that the body and various parts of your life can get used to the healthy new conditions. You many need more rest. It’s also helpful to drink more water. Spend more time quietly contemplating your life and any changes you might need to make to support a healthier lifestyle. Many have found that a process of purification prior to and after the attunement improves the benefit one receives.
