The Masters Section


Usui received all the attunements in one go and
he subsequently, for a time, passed on all of his
knowledge to his pupils in one session.

Since then the presentation of Reiki has changed
a little.

Mrs Takata came up with the idea of charging
$10,000 for the Master attunement.

Then some of Mrs Takatas students came up with
the idea of introducing a waiting time between
attunements.
3

Reiki energy vibrates at its own frequency and is
guided by the higher God consciousness.

That much remains unchanged.

The rest is style, personal choice and
presentation.

In other words there is no right or wrong way
with Reiki.

We, as you already know, decided to attune
people to the Reiki energy in the very same way in
which Dr Usui was attuned and, consequently, we
gave, and continue to give, all of the attunements and
information in one session too.

We came to this way of working as being the right
way for us to pass on Reiki quite intuitively.

It just seemed to be the natural progression of
our own on-going Reiki development.

You, of course, are free to teach Reiki in
whatever way works best for you.

If separating it into three parts again feels like the
best way forward for you then please do so. You will
very soon be (or have already become) an Independent
Reiki Master, and the accent is very much on the word
Independent

Just follow your Reiki intuition; it will never let
you down.

The Usui Master Symbol
Dai Koo Myo






The sacred name of the symbol is DAI KOO MYO.
This is pronounced as DIE-KOH-ME-OH. The Usui
Master Symbol is used for self-empowerment, and
attunements. It connects with the divinity that is at the
inner core of each of us, and brings the Universal
Energy, right into that space.
5
The symbol is translated variously as, Treasure
house of the great beaming light; Great Being of the
Universe shine on me, be my friend; and by Mrs Takata
as Praise be to the great Universal light of
transcendental wisdom.

In essence the Master symbol transforms the
person invoking it, into the treasure house, bringing
great power and, also, great responsibility.

Some Reiki Masters teach that the symbol is for
Master attunements only.

Others use it for attuning all degrees.

Some Reiki Masters teach that it may be used in
healing, others that to use it for healing another means
to take on responsibility for the healing of the person in
question.

We use it for everything, and we dont believe
that you take on anyones responsibility for anything.

Ultimately it is up to the individual to own their
Mastership and in so doing make the symbol their
own - exploring all possibilities for its use.

As with all Reiki symbols the energy of the Master
symbol is accessed by drawing out its form and saying
its sacred name three times. If circumstances permit, it
is always best to draw the symbol out in the air, at a
size that feels comfortable to you, whilst saying its
sacred name aloud.

You can use any of the following three ways for
drawing it out with the hand.

One is to keep the hand flat with the fingers
together and imagine the energy streaming out from
the palm chakra. Another is to cone all five fingers
together using them as a point to direct the energy.
6
The third is to just use the middle or fire finger
and imagine the Reiki energy issuing from it like a laser
beam

If you find that it is sometimes impractical to
flamboyantly draw the symbol out in the air with your
hands, it can be traced, more discretely, with the tip of
the nose or even the tongue.

It can even be visualised and projected mentally,
line by line, or as a complete entity.

If you would like to visualise it in colour Violet
Light is widely accepted as being the most suitable but
Gold, Blue, Purple or any of the higher colours are
also okay. Of course, if you are drawing the symbol
discretely, you only have to say the sacred name in
your mind.

The Usui Master symbol creates a powerful
channel of energy, and can be used to empower
anything

Situations, objects, or personal growth and
development.

It can also be used to cleanse and bless.

When it is used the Master symbol is placed
before all other symbols. However, to drive the intent,
you can cover the Master symbol with the Power
symbol.



Reiki Attunements



Reiki attunements are a powerful spiritual
initiation - they are what is at the heart of Reiki.
7
The attunement energy is Divinely inspired, and
originates from the Divine Source itself - by whatever
name you may wish to call it.

We, as you probably already know, prefer the
term God.


The following procedures are basic methods for
Reiki 1, Reiki 2 and Reiki Master.

We are going to give them to you as if you are
doing all the initiations separately.

This way you will have the choice of whether to
continue doing individual classes or combine them all in
to one class, as we do.

Prepare for all attunements by asking for the help
of your Reiki guides, who are always there for you now,
and state the intention for this to be either a Reiki
Level 1, Level 2 or Master initiation, as appropriate.

Draw the Usui Master and Power symbols on the
palms of each of your hands, and then draw the Power
symbol down the front of your body and over each of
your chakras to open yourself to the energy. Then to
clear the room go to each side of the room in turn and
draw the Power Symbol.

Repeat this procedure using the Mental/Emotional
Symbol and then repeat again with the Power Symbol.

Finally, draw the four Usui Reiki symbols in the
centre of the room intending their energy to bless and
fill the space. This ritual is best performed prior to the
commencement of the class.

Initiates are seated in an upright chair for all
attunements; hands are held together in the prayer
8
position at the heart chakra, moving them up to the
crown chakra and back to the heart, as directed.

The level 1 Attunement is given in four stages;
the Level 2 and Master attunements are both one-stage
attunements.























9

First Degree Attunement


The level 1 attunement is given in four stages.

The attunements place the sacred symbols in the
crown chakra, third eye and palm chakras. This has the
effect of raising the vibrations of the energy in the
physical body.

STAGE 1

Stand behind the student and place both hands
over the top of the students head to gain rapport
and tune in.
Trace the Usui Master Symbol over the students
head, using your dominant hand as a guide.
Picture the symbol moving into the crown chakra
through the head to the base of the brain. As you
follow it on its journey, silently chant the sacred
name of the symbol three times. Once each at the
crown chakra, the third eye chakra and at the
cerebral cortex.
Squeeze the students left shoulder as a signal to
raise the hands to the top of the head.
Hold the students hands with your non-dominant
hand and draw the Power Symbol in the air above
them with your free hand. Picture the symbol
moving into the hands, through the crown chakra
to the base of the brain. As you follow it on its
journey, silently chant the sacred name of the
symbol three times. Once each at the fingertips,
the crown chakra and at the cerebral cortex.
Return the students hands to the original position
in front of the heart.
Move to the front of the student and open the
students hands out flat with your non-dominant
hand.
10
Trace the Power Symbol in front of the students
third eye with your free hand and imagine
shooting the symbol into the students third eye
using your fire finger (middle finger). Silently
chant the sacred name of the symbol three times
in time with the shooting motion.
Trace the Power Symbol above each of the
students palms. Picture the symbol moving into
each hand as you silently chant the sacred name
three times, whilst using a tapping motion to the
palm chakras to drive the symbol into the hands.
Replace the students hands together in front of
the heart and then using one breath, blow from
the students hands, downwards to the solar
plexus, then upwards through the hands to the
crown chakra, back down through the hands to
the solar plexus, and then back to the hands.
Move behind the student and place your hands on
the students shoulders. Look down through the
crown chakra to the student's heart chakra, and
make a positive affirmation - [eg. You are now a
confident and successful Reiki I healer.] State the
affirmation, silently, three times and intend that it
be accepted by the students sub-conscious mind.
Place your thumbs at the base of the students
skull and say silently to your-self, I now seal this
process with Divine Love and Wisdom. Picture a
door with the Power Symbol on it being closed
and locked. Intend that the process is complete
and that the student is now connected directly to
the Reiki source.
Place your hands on the students shoulders and
say silently to yourself, We are both blessed by
this process.
Move to the front of the student, remove the
hands from the heart position, and lay them
palm-down on the thighs. In the case of group
attunements this step is left until all students
have been attuned.

11

STAGE 2


Stand behind the student, and place both hands
over the top of the students head, to gain rapport
and tune in.
Trace the Usui Master Symbol over the students
head using your dominant hand as a guide.
Picture the symbol moving into the crown chakra
through the head to the base of the brain. As you
follow it on its journey, silently chant the sacred
name of the symbol three times: once each at the
crown chakra, the third eye chakra and at the
cerebral cortex.
Repeat the previous step using the Distance
Symbol.
Squeeze the students left shoulder as a signal to
raise the hands to the top of the head
Hold the students hands with your non-dominant
hand and draw the Power Symbol in the air above
them with your free hand. Picture the symbol
moving into the hands, through the crown chakra
to the base of the brain. As you follow it on its
journey, silently chant the sacred name of the
symbol three times. Once each at the fingertips,
the crown chakra and at the cerebral cortex
Return the students hands to the original position
at the heart.
Move to the front of the student and open the
students hands out flat, with your non-dominant
hand held underneath.
Trace the Power Symbol in front of the students
third eye, with your free hand and imagine
shooting the symbol into the students third eye
using your fire finger. Silently chant the sacred
name of the symbol three times, in time with the
shooting motion, and visualise the symbol moving
into the students third eye.
Repeat the previous step using the Distance
Symbol.
12
Trace the Power Symbol above each of the
students palms. Picture the symbol moving into
each hand as you silently chant the sacred name
three times, whilst using a tapping motion to the
palm chakras to drive the symbol into the hands.
Replace the students hands together in front of
the heart, and then with one breath blow from the
students hands, downwards to the solar plexus,
then upwards through the hands to the crown
chakra back down through the hands to the solar
plexus, and then back to the hands.
Move behind the student and place your hands on
the students shoulders. Look down through the
crown chakra to the students heart chakra, and
make a positive affirmation - [e.g. You are now a
confident and successful Reiki I healer.] State the
affirmation, silently, three times and intend that it
be accepted by the students subconscious mind.

skull and say to yourself, I now seal this process
with Divine Love and Wisdom. Picture a door
with the Power Symbol on it being closed and
locked. Intend that the process is complete and
that the student is now connected directly to the
Reiki source.
Place your hands on the students shoulders and
say silently to yourself, We are both blessed by
this process.
Move to the front of the student, remove the
hands from the heart position and lay them
palms-down on the thighs. In the case of group
attunements this step is left until all students
have been attuned.

at the heart.
Move to the front of the student and open the
students hands out flat, with your non-dominant
hand held underneath.
Trace the Power Symbol in front of the students
third eye, with your free hand and imagine

17
Second Degree Attunement


At Level 2 there is only one attunement.

The Level 2 attunement accesses the etheric body
more directly, through the symbols. As well as
empowering the symbols for the student, it tends to
stimulate psychic development, and intuitive
sensitivity.

Stand behind the student and place both hands
over the top of the students head, to gain rapport
and tune in.
Trace the Usui Master Symbol over the students
head using your dominant hand as a guide.
Picture the symbol moving into the crown chakra

students palms. Picture the symbol moving into
each hand as you silently chant the sacred name
three times, whilst using a tapping motion to the
palm chakras to drive the symbol into the hands.
Repeat the previous step using the Distance
Symbol.
Repeat the previous step using the
Mental/Emotional Symbol.
Replace the students hands together in front of
the heart, and then blow. Move the breath from
the students hands, downwards to the solar
plexus, then upwards through the hands to the
crown chakra back down through the hands to the
solar plexus, and then back to the hands.

the affirmation, silently, three times and intend
that it be accepted by the students sub-conscious
mind.
Place your thumbs at the base of the students
skull and say silently to yourself, I now seal this
process with Divine Love and Wisdom. Picture a
door with the Power Symbol on it being closed
19
and locked. Intend that the process is complete
and that the student is now connected directly to
the Reiki source.
Place your hands on the students shoulders and
say silently to yourself, We are both blessed by
this process.
Move to the front of the student, remove the
hands from the heart position, and lay them
palms down on the students thighs. In the case
of group attunements, this step is left until all
students have been attuned.






























20
Usui Master Attunement


As at Level 2 there is only one attunement for the
Master Level. The Master Level attunement is a
confirmation of the students commitment to his or
her own process of evolution. It is also hoped that
the student will go on to teach the Reiki energy to
others, thereby helping to raise the vibrations of
many.

Stand behind the student, and place both hands
over the top of the students head, to gain rapport
and tune in.
Squeeze the students left shoulder as a signal to
raise the hands to the top of the head.
Hold the students hands with your non-dominant
hand and draw the Usui Master Symbol in the air
above them with your free hand. Picture the
symbol moving into the hands, through the crown
chakra to the base of the brain. As you follow it
on its journey, silently chant the sacred name of
the symbol three times. Once each at the
fingertips, the crown chakra and at the cerebral
cortex.
Repeat the previous step using the Power Symbol.
Repeat the previous step using the Distance
Symbol.
Repeat the previous step using the
Mental/Emotional Symbol.
Return the students hands to the original position
at the heart.
Move to the front of the student and open the
students hands out flat, with your non-dominant
hand held underneath.
Trace the Usui Master Symbol in front of the
students third eye, with your free hand, and
imagine shooting the symbol into the students
third eye using your fire finger. Silently chant the
sacred name of the symbol three times, in time
21
with the shooting motion, and visualise the
symbol moving into the students third eye.
Repeat the previous step using the Power Symbol.
Repeat the previous step using the Distance
Symbol.
Repeat the previous step using the
Mental/Emotional Symbol.
Trace the Usui Master Symbol above each of the
students palms. Picture the symbol moving into
each hand as you silently chant the sacred name
three times, whilst using a tapping motion to the
palm chakras to drive the symbol into the hands.
Repeat the previous step using the Power Symbol.
Repeat the previous step using the Distance
Symbol.
Repeat the previous step using the
Mental/Emotional Symbol.
Replace the students hands together in front of
the heart then blow. Move the breath from the
students hands, downwards to the solar plexus,
then upwards through the hands to the crown
chakra, back down through the hands to the solar
plexus, and then back to
the hands.
Move behind the student and place your hands on
the students shoulders. Look down through the
crown chakra to the students heart chakra, and
make a positive affirmation [eg. You are now a
confident and successful Reiki Master.] State the
affirmation silently three times and intend that it
be accepted by the students subconscious mind.
Place your thumbs at the base of the students
skull and say silently to yourself, I now seal this
process with Divine Love and Wisdom. Picture a
door with the Power Symbol on it being closed
and locked. Intend that the process is complete
and that the student is now connected directly to
the Reiki source.
Place your hands on the students shoulders and
say silently to yourself, We are both blessed by
this process.
22
Move to the front of the student, remove the
hands from the heart position, and lay them
palms down on the students thighs. In the case
of a group attunement this step is left until all the
students have been attuned.

Following any Reiki attunement there is a period
of time, normally 3 to 4 weeks during which cleansing
can be acute. This may be minimised by the avoidance
of red meat, tobacco, alcohol or other chemical
substances for at least three days prior to the
attunement.

Cleansing takes place on all levels physical,
mental, emotional and spiritual. The more the Reiki
energy is allowed to flow, the more beneficial the
cleansing; hands on Reiki can be particularly
comforting at this time. Drinking water is very
important, as it will assist the process, and help to
minimise the discomfort of releasing toxins.





















23
The Tibetan Reiki Symbols


Although the symbols given are called Tibetan,
their true origins are not known.

The information available through our lineage,
concerning these symbols, is that they came to the
West via Reiki Masters who were initiated into them
whilst studying in China and Asia. It is possible that the
symbols are shamanic.

This presents no conflict with Reiki since shamanic
practices have provided spiritual initiation for as long as
has been known. Shamanic traditions are oral and
experiential, and provide personal growth through the
facing and working through of our fears. Often this
means facing the fear of death, and letting go of
personal control. (Just like Usui on Mount Koriyama).

Although the symbols can be used as a stand-
alone Reiki system we believe that this is restrictive
and limiting. It is in their utilisation alongside other
techniques that their greatest benefit may be
discovered. That the symbols work is beyond doubt,
but they are not traditional Usui symbols. Masters will
have to gauge for themselves the power of these
symbols and decide what part, if any, they are to play
in the Reiki process.






24
The Tibetan Master Symbol
Dai Ko Mio



The Tibetan
Master symbol
invokes a different
vibration from that of
the Usui Master
Symbol. It is unlikely
that the origin of the
symbol is strictly
Tibetan, indeed as
with all mystic
symbols, the notion
of an origin is not really appropriate because they are
multidimensional. This symbol comes to the West via
Reiki Masters who were initiated in its application by
way of China and Asia, and is passed on through the
lineage of Reiki Master William L Rand.

A comprehensive interpretation of the symbol is
not available, but the lightning flash may be thought of
as a variation of the Raku or Fire Serpent symbol. This
is seen acting in the space between a double spiral
formed by the divine and the physically manifest, thus
linking the two.

The symbol has a powerful clearing and cleansing
property and may be used to clear any blockages to the
Usui attunement energy. It dispels negative energy.
Rooms, situations, and people may be cleansed of
negative energy using this symbol.

Some Reiki Masters teach the use of this symbol
as an integral part of the attunement process, using
kidney-breathing techniques to empower it. Others
double the number of zig-zags, and call it by a different
25
name, Motor Zanon, using it in healing situations to
counteract viruses.

Through a process of exploration and discovery
the individual will find other uses for this symbol. Apart
from the control of others, which is impossible, the
uses are unlimited.

This symbol is also called Dai Ko Mio. That the
spelling is slightly different from the Usui Master
symbol may be an attempt to indicate that this symbol
invokes energy of a different vibration. However the
pronunciation is identical. Indeed the term Dai Ko Mio
seems to be a generic name for a Master Symbol
relating to any esoteric metaphysical practice.

According to the teaching of Reiki Master Simon
Treselyan the Tibetan Dai Ko Mio shows similarities
with Tibetan Domo, or ritual practices for the clearing
of negative energies. The primary association to be
made in relation to this is to see a horn, created by the
two lines emanating from the spiral, which forms a
receptacle for the positive lightning flash to dispel any
negative energy into. This negativity would then be
spiralled away to infinity for transformation in the
energy field of the universe. The lightning flash is also
found in cabalistic empowerment ritual.

As already stated the Tibetan Dai Ko Mio is
primarily used as a cleanser, and clears any blockages
to the Usui attunement energy. Thus it has a major
application in the attunement process. It invokes a
powerful clearing energy, of itself, and this may be put
to use in any situation, which demands a high integrity
clearing.






26

The Fire Serpent Symbol



This symbol is often
referred to by two other
names: the FIRE DRAGON and
RAKU. The symbol seems to
represent the Life Force with
the loops of the serpent
moving through the seven
chakras, ending in a spiral at
the base, which is the seat of
the Kundalini energy. The Fire
Serpent can be used to nicely
balance the chakra energies,
which is useful both in healing
situations, and prior to the
attunements. A note of
caution: some believe that
drawing the symbol in reverse,
up the spine, can result in
unpleasant effects from
disturbing the Kundalini energy
of the root chakra.

As with the Dai Ko Mio, it is
unlikely that the origin of this
symbol is strictly Tibetan,
although it is often referred to
as such. It comes to the West
via Reiki Masters who were
initiated into its application by
way of China and Asia, thence
through the lineage of Reiki
Master William L Rand.

Together with the Tibetan Dai
Ko Mio this symbol seems to
create another means of accessing the Great Spirit.
27

The serpent symbol resembles Asian
correspondences to the raising of the Kundalini. The
seven loops of the symbol relate to the seven major
chakras in the body, spiralling into the base chakra,
which is the seat of the Kundalini energy.

Reiki Master Simon Treselyan suggests that the
symbol is only one half of a double interwoven element,
and that if the symbol is duplicated in reverse it
provides for more balance in the energy. It would also
then resemble the caduceus, and the DNA double helix.

Reiki Master Diane Stein, suggests that this
symbol is a variant form of the Raku symbol which
appears as the lightning flash of the Tibetan Dai Ko
Mio, and that this is the symbol that grounds the Reiki
energy, or brings it to Earth.

The symbol is used in attunements to balance
chakra energies and help clear a channel for the
attunement. It may also be used in clearing auras, and
to balance chakras, either as part of a treatment or
whenever the situation demands.

Breath Techniques
The Dragons Breath


Whilst intention is the most important element in
passing attunements, the breath is fundamental to the
process. Consequently, attention to breath technique is
recommended [some teachers say it is vital]. What
follows is a description of breath techniques, which
have particular application in the passing of Reiki
attunements.

Throughout these breathing practices the subtle
energy circuit of the body is maintained in a closed
condition as follows:-

The Hui Yin point is held in contraction. The Hui
Yin is the pressure point found at the perineum; it
lies between the anus and the vagina in women
and between the anus and the scrotum in men.
Contracting the Hui Yin and holding it with
comfort may take a little practice. Begin by
contracting twenty times, and then holding as
long as possible. Eventually it will be possible to
close the Hui Yin simply by thinking it closed.

The tip of the tongue is placed on the alveolar
ridge [just behind but not on the upper front
teeth].

The purpose of closing the bodys primary energy
circuit, in this way, is to keep the initiation energy from
leaking away prior to passing it to the initiate. Reiki
Master Kathleen Milner asserts that Hawayo Takata
taught these contraction procedures to all her Master
initiates, but that not all were taught the breath
techniques that follow.



29
Kidney Breathing:


This is the process of breathing the Raku energy
into the body. The kidneys are one of two key energy
centres in the body [the other is the eyes].

Focus above your crown and visualise a
deep cobalt blue mist. Breathing through
your mouth, inhale deeply, expanding your
lower abdomen. Mentally direct the blue
mist into your kidneys.
Breathe out a white mist.

This can be practised by placing the hands over
the kidneys, and with each inhalation feel the hands
lifting off; with every exhalation allow the hands to
return to the body. After practising for a while the
energy will be felt without having to use the hands.

Violet Breath:

Focus above your crown and visualise a white
misty light. Breathing through your mouth, inhale
deeply, expanding your lower abdomen. Mentally,
see this white misty light enter your crown chakra
and flow through your tongue, down the front of
your body (Functional Channel), to collect at the
Hui Yin point.
Hold your breath and see the white light rise up
your spine (Governor Channel) to the centre of
your head.
Imagine the white mist inside your head turning
to blue and beginning to spin with a clockwise
rotation. As it spins see it turn from Blue to Violet
or Royal Purple. It may then turn to Gold
automatically, but this is not a conscious part of
this process. [In the lineage of Reiki Master
William L. Rand, Violet is the final step; however,
Reiki Master Kathleen Milner teaches that the
Gold step is an essential part of this breathing
30
practice.] We recommend you do whats right for
you.
Within the Violet light visualise the Tibetan Master
symbol and breathe this out.



































31
Attunements Using the Tibetan
Symbols


Prepare for all attunements by asking for the help
of your Reiki guides, and state the intention for this to
be a Reiki Level 1, Level 2 or Master, as appropriate.
Draw the Usui Master, Tibetan Master and Power
symbols on the palms of each of your hands, and then
draw the Power symbol down the front of your body
and over each of your chakras to open yourself to the
energy. Then to clear the room go to each side of the
room in turn and draw the Power Symbol. Repeat this
procedure using the Mental/Emotional Symbol and then
repeat again with the Power Symbol. Finally, draw all of
the Reiki symbols into the room intending their energy
to bless and fill the space. This ritual is best performed
prior to the commencement of the class.

Initiates are seated in an upright chair for all
attunements; hands are held together in the prayer
position at the heart chakra, moving to the crown
chakra and back to the heart, as directed. The level 1
Attunement is given in four stages; the Level 2 and
Master attunements are both one-stage attunements.

The Hui Yin contraction is held, with the tongue to
the alveolar ridge, for the duration of the transmission
of the attunements. This is released when the
ceremony is complete.

the Tibetan Master symbol from your brain to the
initiate; visualise the symbol moving through their
crown chakra to lodge at the base of the brain. As
you do this silently chant the sacred name of the
symbol three times: once each at the crown
chakra, the third eye chakra and at the cerebral
cortex.
Trace the Usui Master Symbol over the students
head, using your dominant hand as a guide
picture the symbol moving into the crown chakra

students have been attuned.




















44
Tibetan Master Attunement


There is only one attunement for the Master
Level. The Master Level attunement is a confirmation
of the students commitment to his or her own
process of evolution. It is also hoped that the
student will go on to transmit the Reiki energy to
others, thereby helping to raise the vibrations of
many.

Working from behind the student, draw the Fire
Serpent symbol from the top of the initiates head
to the base of the spine.
Remain behind the student, and place both hands
over the top of the students head, to gain rapport
and tune in.
Take three blue Kidney Breaths, and create the

dominant hand, as a signal to raise the hands to
the top of the head.
Hold the students hands with your non-dominant
hand and draw the Tibetan Master Symbol in the
air above them with your free hand. Picture the
symbol moving into the hands, through the crown
chakra to the base of the brain. As you follow it
on its journey, silently chant the sacred name of
the symbol three times. Once each at the
fingertips, the crown chakra and at the cerebral
cortex.
Repeat the previous step using the Fire Serpent
Symbol.
45
Repeat the previous step using the Usui Master
Symbol.
Repeat the previous step using the Power Symbol.
Repeat the previous step using the Distance
Symbol.
Repeat the previous step using the
Mental/Emotional Symbol.

at the heart.
Move to the front of the student and open the
students hands out flat, with your non-dominant
hand held underneath.
Trace the Tibetan Master Symbol in front of the
students third eye, with your free hand, and
imagine shooting the symbol into the students
third eye using your fire finger. Silently chant the
sacred name of the symbol three times, in time
with the shooting motion, and visualise the
symbol moving into the students third eye.
Repeat the previous step using the Fire Serpent
Symbol.
Repeat the previous step using the Usui Master
Symbol.

Repeat the previous step using the Power Symbol.
Repeat the previous step using the Distance
Symbol.
Repeat the previous step using the

the students palms. Picture the symbol moving
into each hand as you silently chant the sacred
name three times, whilst using a tapping motion
to the palm chakras to drive the symbol into the
hands.
Repeat the previous step using the Fire Serpent
Symbol.
Repeat the previous step using the Usui Master
Symbol.
Repeat the previous step using the Power Symbol.
46
Repeat the previous step using the Distance
Symbol.
Repeat the previous step using the
Mental/Emotional Symbol.
Replace the students hands together in front of
the heart then blow. Move the breath from the
students hands, downwards to the solar plexus,
then upwards through the hands to the crown
chakra, back down through the hands to the solar
plexus, and then back to the hands.
Move behind the student and place your hands on
the students shoulders. Look down through the
crown chakra to the students heart chakra, and
make a positive affirmation [eg. You are now a
confident and successful Reiki Master.] State the
affirmation silently three times and intend that it
be accepted by the students subconscious mind.
Place your thumbs at the base of the students
skull and say silently to yourself, I now seal this
process with Divine Love and Wisdom. Picture a
door with the Power Symbol on it being closed
and locked. Intend that the process is complete
and that the student is now connected directly to
the Reiki source.
Place your hands on the students shoulders and
say silently to yourself, We are both blessed by
this process.
Move to the front of the student, remove the
hands from the heart position, and lay them
palms down on the students thighs. In the case
of a group attunement this step is left until all the
students have been attuned.

As written before with the Usui attunements:
following any Reiki attunement there is a period of
time, normally 3 to 4 weeks during which cleansing can
be acute. This may be minimised by the avoidance of
red meat, tobacco, alcohol or other chemical
substances for at least three days prior to the
attunement.
47
Cleansing takes place on all levels physical,
mental, emotional and spiritual. The more the Reiki
energy is allowed to flow, the more beneficial the
cleansing; hands on Reiki can be particularly
comforting at this time. Drinking water is important at
this time in particular, as it will assist the process, and
help to minimise the discomfort of releasing toxins.



Self-Attunement &
Empowerment Exercises


Self Attunement.


Assume a relaxed meditative position, with your
hands over your heart.
Tune in to the Reiki energy; visualise a shaft of
golden light connecting you to the Source, and to
the planet centre.
Call upon your guides, and state your intention.
Leave your non-dominant hand resting on your
heart, and raise your dominant hand above your
crown.
Trace the Tibetan Master symbol above your
crown chakra and chant its sacred name three
times, then with a deep breath draw the symbol
into your body, through your crown, past your
third eye and throat, to your heart chakra.
Repeat the previous step using the Fire Serpent
symbol.
Repeat the previous step using the Usui Master
symbol.
Repeat the previous step using the Distance
symbol.
Repeat the previous step using the
Mental/Emotional symbol.
Repeat the previous step using the Power symbol.
48
Replace your dominant hand over your non-
dominant hand, at your heart and breathe.
Return your awareness to the physical: through
your breathing remember your body, feel your
feet on the floor, and your weight in the chair.
When you are ready open your eyes.


The Master Empowerment
Exercise


Stand with feet shoulder width apart, and facing
the Sun, the Moon, or the dawn, as appropriate.
Draw the Usui Master symbol on each palm and,
using a tapping motion, drive the symbol into the
hands.
Draw the Power symbol on each palm, and using
a tapping motion, drive the symbol into the
hands.
Place both hands on your heart chakra and bring
your attention into your centre.
Move your hands into the prayer position, at your
heart chakra.
Visualise the Usui Master symbol and chanting its
sacred name three times, move your hands
upwards over the crown chakra and outwards in a
circular fashion to return to the prayer position at
your heart chakra.
Place one hand over the other, with palms facing
downwards, and push the palms to the base
chakra level whilst visualising the Power Symbol.
Make the following statement, aloud if possible: I
establish my Divine presence on Earth.
Repeat the whole sequence two more times, to
make a total of three times.



49
Self-Energising Exercise


This technique uses the Tibetan Master symbol
and produces a charge of energy. It can be particularly
useful for reviving oneself, and others, from tiring
situations.

Stand up straight.
Locate the energy point on the shoulder
blade around four inches [10cm] in from the
shoulder joint.
Massage this point, with a steady finger
pressure, using a clockwise motion for about
one minute. At the same time visualise the
Tibetan Master symbol and continue to
chant its sacred name in mantra fashion.
Repeat this process on the other shoulder.
Repeat the whole process another two
times, so that it has been performed a total
of three times.
Make a fist with the dominant hand, and
gently tap the centre of the chest for about
one minute. Once again visualise the Tibetan
Master symbol whilst doing this, and chant
its sacred name. This final step stimulates
the thymus gland, which aids the energising
process.


Self-Empowerment Exercise


This exercise is not a part of Reiki practice, but its
form is recognised within the White Eagle Lodge as the
Tree of Life, and in martial arts practices as Drawing
Down the Sun. The intention of the exercise is to create
a bridge between the Earth and the Spiritual Plane
using the body. Drawing the Earth energy upwards and
dispersing it outwards empowers each individual
50
chakra. The exercise makes a good starting point for a
workshop class. All breathing is through the mouth.

Stand with feet shoulder width apart, and facing
the Sun, the Moon, or the dawn, as appropriate.
Raise your arm over your head, and form a
triangle with the forefingers and thumbs of both
hands. Use this triangle to frame the Sun [or
Moon], and focus its energy into your third eye.
Bend down, and allow your arms to drop in front
of you dragging the knuckles on the ground.
Then straighten up whilst taking a deep breath.
As you do, intend that you are drawing power
from the Earth with your breath, pulling the
energy up through your chakras.
As your hands reach your jaw, exhale forcefully,
blowing into your palms. Continue to move your
hands upward beyond your crown chakra and
outwards in circular fashion.
Take an in-breath as you bring your hands to your
heart chakra level. Place one hand over the other,
with palms facing downwards, and push the palms
to the base chakra level whilst blowing out gently.
Repeat the whole four-step sequence six more
times, to make a total of seven times, once for
each chakra.


The Healing Attunement


By giving a healing attunement it is possible to
speed-up a healing situation, without attuning the
recipient as a Reiki channel. The form of this
attunement is similar to the initiation attunements,
however in this case none of the symbols are placed
into the recipients hands.

The recipient sits upright, in a straight-backed
chair, with feet firmly on the floor and hands resting,
palms down, on the thighs. The recipients eyes are to
51
remain closed throughout, and the attention should be
focused on the problem to be addressed.

Draw the Usui Master and Power symbols on the
palms of each of your hands, then draw the Power
symbol down the front of your body and over each of
your chakras to open yourself to the energy. Cleanse
and clear the room as shown above in connection with
the Usui attunements. Finally, draw all of the Reiki
symbols into the room intending their energy to bless
and fill the space. This ritual may be performed prior to
the commencement of the session. Stand behind the
client/recipient to prepare for the attunement. Say a
silent prayer asking for the help of the Reiki guides,
and personal Spirit guides, and state the intention for
this to be a healing attunement.

Contract the Hui Yin, hold the tongue to the alveolar
ridge, and proceed as follows:

Working from behind, draw the Fire Serpent
symbol from the top of the recipients head to the
base of the spine.
Place both hands over the top of the recipients
head, to gain energetic rapport and tune in.
Take three Blue Kidney Breaths, and create the
Violet Breath. Use the Violet Breath to transfer
the Tibetan Master symbol from your brain to the
initiate; visualise the symbol moving through their
crown chakra and down into the heart chakra. As
you move the symbol into the recipients body
silently chant the sacred name of the symbol
three times. Once each at the crown chakra, the
throat chakra and at the heart chakra.
Draw the Usui Master Symbol above the
recipients crown chakra with your dominant
hand. Picture the symbol moving through the
crown chakra and into the body, to lodge at the
heart chakra. Guide it with your hand, and as you
follow it on its journey, silently chant the sacred
52
name of the symbol three times: once each at the
crown chakra the throat and the heart chakra.
Repeat the previous step Distance Symbol.
Repeat the previous step using the
Mental/Emotional Symbol.
Repeat the previous step using the Power Symbol.
Move to the front and trace the Tibetan Master
Symbol over the recipients crown. Using your
dominant hand as a guide, move the symbol
down to the recipients solar plexus. As you do
this, silently chant the sacred name of the symbol
three times. Once at the crown, once at the throat
area, and once at the solar plexus. Then gently
pretend to tap the top of the recipients head
three times with your fingertips. (Do not actually
touch the top of the head, or your client will jump
off the chair!)
Repeat the previous step using the Usui Master
Symbol.
Repeat the previous step using the Distance
Symbol.
Repeat the previous step using the
Mental/Emotional Symbol.
Repeat the previous step using the Power Symbol.
Blow, from the recipients solar plexus, up the
body to the crown chakra back down to the solar
plexus and then up to the crown again. As you
blow, use your hands to guide the energy up,
down then up again and have the clear intention
of sweeping any negative energy out to the light.
If the client/recipient has described a shape, or a
colour, visualise this moving out to the light.
Move to the back and place your hands on the
recipients shoulders. Look down through the
crown chakra to the heart chakra looking for a
soft pink glow, and make a positive affirmation -
[eg. You are now completely healed with Divine
Love.] State the affirmation, silently, three times
and intend that it be accepted by the recipients
sub-conscious mind.
53
Place your dominant hand at the back of the
clients heart chakra and the non-dominant hand
on the nearest shoulder, and say to yourself, I
now seal this process with Divine Love and
Wisdom. Picture a door with the Power Symbol
on it being closed and locked over the heart
chakra. Intend that the process is sealed and
complete.
Place your hands on the recipients shoulders and
say silently to yourself, We are both blessed in
this process.
Move to the front and hold your hands at waist
level, with the palms facing the client. Inhale,
hold the breath briefly, and as you exhale release
the Hui Yin.
Ask the recipient to breathe slowly and deeply,
and to open their eyes.
Ask if the negative condition is still there, or if it
has changed in any way. If more work is required
use a standard Reiki session.

How to draw the Symbols.



The Usui Reiki Master Symbol


































The box containing the V on its side and the part box
containing the Z, at the bottom of the symbol can be drawn
in any manner you wish. Note that the box on the left is a
full box and the box on the right is like a shed. So it
becomes a box with a sideways V and a shed with a Z
