Introduction
With so many Reiki Courses that are available now, you may ask why I decided to undertake the writing of a new course. I have several reasons for writing this course. My primary reason is that while learning Reiki and getting familiar with its uses I started doing research beyond what I was taught. I wanted to truly understand all there was to know about Reiki and how to use it to help others. That is where I ran into some trouble. There are thousands of web-sites with information about Reiki; some even provide the courses for free. A few of those will do the attunements for free also. However, most do not agree on various different aspects of Reiki and how it was originally taught. So everyone, it would seem, decided to just do their own thing. In this course I have attempted to give the most popular versions of what I found while researching Reiki. And, well, yes I have added in a little of what I have learned while using Reiki on myself and others. This is by no means the most comprehensive collection on the subject, nor is it designed to be. Just as Reiki works differently for and on everyone, all students of the art of Reiki Healing should study and learn what works best for them. Throughout the text I have given different sides of some of the most controversial subjects with in Reiki training, and I urge you to do some research for yourself. I have not traveled to Japan, not talked with anyone that studied under the original teacher, Dr. Mikao Usui. But, with some willingness to learn you will find the things that best suit you and your practice of Reiki. I also began this course as just an informational handout to some of my clients. I was attuned with one attunement in a course that covered all three levels, and in my opinion that worked just fine. I have informally taught others Reiki and have done the Total Master Attunement for those that wanted it to have it. I intended that if I ever formally taught Reiki that would be the way I did it also, since what is the use in doing separate attunements if one works. However, that plan didnt work; as I was approached by some of my clients who wanted to learn Reiki but didnt want to take that big of a step. Some of the clients I work with werent sure that they wanted to get that into learning to use Reiki for themselves. I was asked to break it down, so I have. I decided to make this Reiki Level 1 Course free to all, for those that do not want to learn Distance Healing or how to do the Attunements that are taught in Level 2 and the Master/Teacher Level. This will also give those that are unfamiliar with Reiki a chance
2008 Mary Morgan Tailored Life Coaching

to explore Reiki Healing and Techniques to be able to make a better decision of whether or not they wish to continue. I will still offer the one Total Master Attunement with materials for all three levels to those that already know that they wish to pursue further study in Reiki. I will also be providing the material in three different blocks of learning material, with three different attunements, for those that prefer to study that way. This first course will remain free, and I will charge for Level 2, Master/Teacher Level, and the combined course. I will work with those that cannot afford to continue their study on an individual basis, as I do not feel it is right to turn people away from learning to heal others with an energy that we were all born with; if they truly have the desire to learn and honestly cannot afford the courses. Many Reiki Teachers would not agree with this decision; however, I prefer to help as many as I can and this is the way I figured out to do that best. Many others may tell you that by selecting a teacher with such loose guidelines in the teaching method you will not really know Reiki. I believe that since the source of the energy is God, and this energy is in all of us when we are born, therefore, I am just making you aware of it. I have attempted to keep my religious beliefs in God and Jesus Christ limited in this text, since Reiki is a spiritual non-religion based healing technique. However, all reference to God cannot be totally left out of Reiki teachings since the source of the energy used in Reiki comes from God. Many people call the source of the energy by many different names to fit their religious beliefs and that is fine. But, to me it is God and that is the basis I have written from to simplify things. As a Life Coach, Reiki is a tool in my tool bag to help others; it is not just a business for me. Remember through your studies that I am here to teach, help, and guide you in learning all that you desire to learn about Reiki. Please, do not hesitate to contact me throughout your training with questions, comments and concerns that arise. I do not know everything about it, but I have learned a lot and wish to share that knowledge with you! Love & Light,

What is Reiki? Reiki is pronounced Ray-key, however since there is no R sound in Japanese it may actually be spoken as Lay-key or Day-key. The meaning of the word Reiki is usually taught as Universal Life Force Energy or Spiritually-Guided Energy. The two parts of the word are broken down as: Rei, meaning Universal (the less religious way of saying God or Divine) and Ki, meaning Life Force Energy. Ki is the same thing as Ti in Hawaiian, Chi in Chinese, Light in Christianity and some even related it to the Super Strings in new physics. No matter what you wish to call it, Ki is the energy that runs through everything, all the time. Reiki is fundamentally the term used to refer to a system of healing and self-development re-discovered (some say discovered, some say created; this will be discussed later on) in Japan in the early 20th century by Dr. Mikao Usui (Usui- Sensei). This system is commonly referred as simply Reiki or Reiki Therapy and the formal name is Usui Reiki Ryoho which is Usui Reiki Healing Method. Reiki has no religious affiliation, although it has been heavy influenced by spiritual and therapeutic discipline, practice and ideals found in Shinto and Buddhism. Many people of many different backgrounds and religions have taken the basics of Reiki and incorporated it into their own styles. Resulting in many variations of the original Reiki, some of which are still called Usui Reiki and some of which are new styles with their own names. Even though Reiki has no affiliation with any specific religion, I must add that this is in many ways the same type of healing that Jesus, and many other great leaders of other faiths, used and taught. Reiki Levels Reiki is usually broken into and taught at three levels. There is some debate about which levels Usui-Sensei used and what he called them. Actually some claim that there are four levels and some claim that there are five levels. I teach that there are three levels, with attunement at each of the three levels. Level 1, Shoden, allows for the student to become aware of the energy, letting go and letting the energy do its work. At this level students are taught what Reiki is, and what it isnt. Attunement at this level allows the student to work with Reiki for self-healing and for helping others. Level 1 is for those that wish to use this hands-on-method of healing for themselves and others that are present with them. Level 2, Okuden, allows for the student to learn the greater quality of the flow of Reiki, through the use of symbols. There are three symbols that are taught at this level which

2008 Mary Morgan Tailored Life Coaching

will help in setting the intent, enhancing the effectiveness, doing distance work, and performing treatment at deeper psycho-emotional levels. Level Master/Teacher, Shinpiden, allows for the student to gain knowledge of the ability to pass on attunements to others. It is at this level that the student is attuned to the fourth and final symbol and instructed in its use. Students at this level will also develop a deeper understanding and connection to the Reiki experience. Who can learn Reiki? Reiki is from God, Goddess, Buddha, Allah, The Creator, Source, The Universal Mind, Your Higher-Self, etc. (referred to from here on out as God), or whatever you personally wish to call Him, Her, or It; and therefore anyone can learn to use Reiki. We are all equal and were born with this energy already available to us. Therefore we all have the ability to learn to heal ourselves and others. There are different levels of Reiki, but only the Reiki Masters can attune others. An attunement simply makes one aware of "But you, do not the energy they already have flowing through them. be called 'Rabbi'; Keep in mind though that being a Reiki Master doesnt make one person better than another in any way, it just means that they have been attuned to the Master Level of Reiki, learned all of the symbols and know how to send attunements others.
for One is your Teacher, the Christ, and you are all brothers. (Matthew 23:8)

To use Reiki successfully the most important thing you need is an open mind and heart, coupled with a desire to heal. Everyone that feels the desire to heal is led on a different path, and you must choose if learning Reiki is the right path for you. Many Reiki Teachers say you do not even have to believe that Reiki will work. It just does. I do not agree with that. The psychological basis for my psychological (sk ljjikl) reasoning is medical research has proven the power of suggestion in relating to the mind or healing, and therefore has recognized that our physical bodies are mental processes dependent upon the spiritual or subconscious self. Meaning we have to believe in something for it to manifest itself in our lives.
physiological (fizzee ljjikl) relating to the way that living things function, rather than shape or structure

The conclusion being, the physiological basis is a physician has the ability by means of suggestion, regardless of the type of suggestive techniques that are employed, to manipulate the soul into believing in the method, which frees the healing power of Nature.

2008 Mary Morgan Tailored Life Coaching

Theological basis is actually my Christian belief system. With Pauls teaching, recorded in the New Testament, we are shown that the healing that we can give theologica (the ljjikl) to each other is not miraculous as were the "And these signs relating to, using, engaged healings of Jesus. These healings are natural and shall accompany in, or typical of theology those who have therapeutic abilities, just raised to a higher power believed: In My by faith, whether that faith is in the healing, the healer, or God. name they shall However, I do agree mostly with the other Reiki Teachers who say it works regardless of your religious or spiritual beliefs. I still feel that a person must believe that the energy for Reiki healing is coming from a Higher Power and not of their own energy or doing. Most spiritual paths and beliefs do support this. Since Reiki is said to be a good energy that can do no harm, I do not feel that the darker spiritual paths or religions would support healing with Reiki. That of course is my opinion, unfounded by any tangible evidence.
cast out demons; they shall speak with new tongues; (Mark 16:17) they shall pick up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it shall by no means hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall be well." (Mark 16:18)

So based on my beliefs, and the research I have done, along with the experiences I have had with Reiki; both as a practitioner and receiver: those that either, do not believe in the ability of the healer, the technique itself, or that healing of the spiritual kind comes from a Higher Power; in my opinion will not be healed. So maybe a person doesnt have to believe in Reiki, but from this viewpoint they must believe that healing can take place for them in some way, from somewhere. None of my opinions should stop you from learning Reiki and using it to heal yourself and others. I just feel that you needed to be aware of where I, as your teacher, stand on the topic of who can use Reiki. Do or dont do as you feel led; believe or dont believe as you feel led. As you work with Reiki you will form your own opinions of this subject.

Reiki Principles There are several versions of the Reiki Principles floating around today. The version that is commonly agreed upon as being in the handbook that Usui Sensei gave to his students is: The secret art of inviting happiness The miraculous medicine of all diseases Just for today, do not be angry Do not worry and be filled with gratitude Devote yourself to your work and be kind to people Every morning and evening, join your hands in prayer, Pray these words to your heart, And chant these words with your mouth Usui Reiki Treatment for the improvement of body and mind -- The Founder Mikao Usui If you prefer to change the five basic statements to statements without negative words then you can use this version: The secret art of inviting happiness The miraculous medicine of all diseases Just for today, be calm Be peaceful and be filled with gratitude Devote yourself to your work and be kind to people Every morning and evening, join your hands in prayer, Pray these words to your heart, And chant these words with your mouth Usui Reiki Treatment for the improvement of body and mind Some people have reported feeling more comfortable and more enlightened when saying the principles in Japanese instead of American English, or any other language. If you think you would like to try this you can look them up in several different places on the internet. It doesnt really matter which set of principles, one of these or another set you find, you decide to use; as long as you do say them each morning and evening with your regular meditation or prayers, and more significantly, as long as you live them. The meaning behind these principles is more important than which words you use. The intent is to bring about enlightenment, peaceful living, and calmness. Usui-Sensei gave these principles to us so that we could learn and practice humility, gratitude, and kindness; while at the same time being worry and anger free. By healing ourselves with Reiki and living the five principles, we should find true knowledge, not of Reiki, but of ourselves.

2008 Mary Morgan Tailored Life Coaching

Regardless of your spiritual path or religious beliefs you can incorporate the principles set forth in Reiki. They probably go along with most religious precepts and beliefs already established in your belief system. Usui-Sensei taught Reiki as an enlightenment system, not just a means of healing. Most of what has been passed down in the Western world only concentrates on the healing. Today there are many teachers that are teaching Reiki as only a healing system and some are even teaching it as a business system. It was however; originally designed to connect us to the Universal Source of love and light, and it just happened to allow healing also. I personally do not advocate teaching Reiki as a business only, as that is gaining profit from others suffering, by using something that we are all given freely at birth. But, on the other hand I do not go in depth as Reiki was originally taught for the simple reason that we all already have our separate belief systems and can just add Reiki into those practices. If you do however, wish more in-depth study on meditation, spirituality, or religious beliefs you can contact me at: tailoredlifecoaching@gmail.com , if you require assistance in an area of religion that I am not well versed in I will help you to find someone that can help you. History of Reiki I am going to impart to you the history of Reiki as I learned it. There are many different versions of the beginning of Reiki floating around. You can do research to find the different versions of the story if you wish. There is really no way for us to know which story is more complete or more correct since most of the people involved have already passed away. For this reason I choose to relate this version to you, since through my research I found this to be one of the more accepted succession of events. One of the main points that vary greatly from person to person is whether Dr. Usui discovered, re-discovered, or created Reiki. I choose to believe that he re-discovered Reiki. Again, research of this proved unhelpful since there is really no way of knowing exactly how his knowledge, and use of Reiki and its symbols came about. As I have already told you Dr. Usui made this re-discovery in Japan in the early 20th century. It is said that he wanted to learn how to heal, and traveled a lot in search of a method or teaching that would work. It is believed that at one point he went on a search

2008 Mary Morgan Tailored Life Coaching

to find out how Jesus healed, but had no luck and returned to Japan, where he studied Buddhism. Others believe that he was a Christian Monk. Since he could find no one that could teach him how to heal, he decided to learn on his own from the Universe. He went to Mt. Kurama for a fasting retreat. On the 21st day of his retreat he saw the Reiki energy coming towards his third-eye. His first reaction was to run, but he did not and the energy struck him, rendering him unconscious. While he was unconscious he was attuned to the Reiki energy and shown the symbols and how to use them. When he awakened, he began to run back to his temple to inform his teacher of his experience. While running he stubbed his toe on a rock, he instinctively put his hand over his toe and it healed quickly. On his way back he stopped in a restaurant and ordered a rather large meal, one that would have made anyone else sick after fasting for that many days. However, he had no trouble eating the meal. There was a woman in the restaurant that was sick and he healed her. When he got back to his temple he found his teacher sick and bedridden. He used the Reiki to heal him also. These events became known as the 4 Miracles. Usui-Sensei began going around healing the poor and deformed, and he was able to physically heal many of them. However, he found that many others did not want to be healed because they had grown accustomed to being lazy and begging was easy for them to do as a living. This was a hard time for him, and supposedly where the energyexchange idea came from. He had people bring gifts to him, no matter how small, in exchange for him teaching them his method of healing. He traveled Japan and China, healing and teaching others. During this time he opened many clinics because of the large numbers of people willing to learn Reiki. Usui-Sensei was said to have been a warm, caring, and generous man who passed this method of healing onto many people. Usui-Sensei died in 1926 of a stroke, after having taught approximately 16 Masters or teachers. One of them was, Dr. Chujiro Hayashi, a retired military man. Dr. Hayashi opened his own clinic and focused on where to position the hands for which types of ailments. He knew that World War II was coming and that he would be called back to service, and because of his peaceful nature and desire only to heal others he said to have simply left his body during his last workshop. One of his students before he died was Mrs. Hawayo Takata, to whom he taught the Master level of Reiki.

2008 Mary Morgan Tailored Life Coaching

Mrs. Takata was born in Hawaii in 1900; she traveled to Japan because her sister was dying and while in Japan she became ill also. She was hospitalized and told that she needed surgery, and she asked if there were any other methods available. They told her about Hayashi-Senseis Reiki clinic. It was in that clinic that she was healed and taught the first two levels of Reiki. She was taught the third and final Master level in Hawaii when Hayashi-Sensei travelled to Hawaii. Takata-Sensei opened clinics and became a well known healer and teacher, attuning her students up to level 2. Takata-Sensei began attuning Reiki Masters in 1970, in one weekend long classes that she charged $10,000 for. She did not allow her students to take notes, not even of the symbols, which is why there are so many variations of the symbols today. It is unclear why she didnt allow her students to take notes, however there are a great many theories about her reasons. However, her reasons are unimportant, and what is important is because of her there are now millions of Reiki practitioners around the world.

Legalities of Reiki Before you actually being to learn to use Reiki, you need to be aware of the legal issues that may be involved should you decide to practice Reiki as a profession. There is a chance that, depending on which state you are in, you may be breaking the law because Reiki is a hands-on technique. However, there are many people in every state that practice Reiki professionally without trouble, so there are ways to work with and around state laws. Some states require that Reiki Practitioners become Licensed Massage Therapists with the State Massage Therapist Board, in order to practice professionally, because you actually touch a person during sessions. Make sure you find out what your state laws are before you begin your practice. A simple way around this regulation is to become an ordained minister. If you live in the US, you are protected by the Constitution, if you are practicing your religious beliefs, and since Reiki is spiritual in nature you may feel drawn to becoming ordained. If you do not feel that is the right way for you to go you can simply offer your services for a donation rather than a set fee, and you should be fine, however; make sure you check your state laws carefully before trying this. The best way to check your state laws is to contact your local Massage Board, be honest and up front with them and they will tell you if there is anything you need to do or be concerned about. Remember that you do not have to physically touch a person for Reiki to work. If your state laws prohibit touching others, then you do not have to actually touch them, holding your hands 3-4 inches above them will work. If you would like information on becoming an ordained minister you can contact The Universal Light Church at: www.theuniversallight.com . TUL is nondenominational and will register you as a Healing Minister. If you feel led to practice and teach Reiki then ordination may be the best way for you to go. There are certain things that you cannot do as a Reiki Practitioner. You cannot diagnose, recommend, advise, prescribe, etc. All of these terms are to be used only by Licensed Medical Doctors, and unless you have a traditional Doctors Degree you need to remove these terms from your vocabulary. You are a spiritual, energy or holistic healer, which ever you decide to call yourself. You do not need to know what someone is suffering from to offer healing to them, nor do you need to know which things they should take that will cure their condition.

2008 Mary Morgan Tailored Life Coaching

It is legal to teach others how to maintain health and to stay healthy. As long as you do not attempt to cure diseases you should have no trouble if you feel led to learn to teach Reiki or to use it for healing others. Ethically Speaking Reiki requires that you touch another person, not just with your hands but also with energy. You are sharing the loving energy that God has made available to all of us. Many that will come to you for healing are vulnerable, either physically or emotionally. You must maintain their respect as well as their confidentiality. It is very important that you do not violate the trust they have in you. The following ethical concerns are things you should be aware of since you may face these at some point while practicing Reiki. Although each of these is discussed throughout this course in various places I wanted to put them all together in one place for you to refer back to as often as needed. Always ask permission prior to treating anyone. Some people actually do not wish to be healed, or they do not want you using Reiki on them. Respect their wishes. All information given to you by people you treat is confidential. Any information discussed in the Reiki session should stay between the two of you. When working with children, make sure you have the permission of the parent. That the parent remain in the room, and that your hands hover above all areas that are private. You must be very careful with children in this respect as their bodies are smaller than an adult in most cases, and if you are using the Chakras they are closer together. It is a good rule of thumb to just not ever touch a child, and to always give Reiki to them with your hands above and not on them. Before doing Reiki on someone, walk them through what you do during a session and where you will be placing your hands. You should also have this information available in written form and have them sign it agreeing they understand and are ok with what you have told them. If you use actual touch methods be prepared in case they ask that you dont actually touch them. Have in writing another form stating that there will be no physical contact. Always make sure that you explain both ways and let them decide which they prefer. Always respect touch and boundary issues for people. There is never a reason to have a client disrobe for a Reiki Session. It is never ok to touch a client in a private area. Hover your hands above such areas when necessary, being very careful not to make contact. This applies whether you use the hands-on method or not for other areas of the body. Do not ever diagnose or promise that you can heal someone. Always explain to people that Reiki sessions are not a guarantee for a cure, and are not a substitute for appropriate medical care. Have this disclaimer in writing and signed also. Never suggest
2008 Mary Morgan Tailored Life Coaching

that anyone deviate from a prescribed treatment or medication or interfere with a treatment plan of a licensed health care provider. Always suggest referrals to a licensed medical or psychological professional when appropriate. Do not attempt to diagnose or do therapy with people if you are not licensed to do so. If someone tries to force you into doing this, make the referral and ask them to not return to you until they have been cleared to do so by a medical/psychological professional, in some cases it may be appropriate to require a medical release signed by their doctor. Some people ask whether or not they should charge for Reiki sessions. That is entirely up to each individual. If you are in a position to give Reiki Sessions for free then do so, but if not and you need to charge, please keep the prices fair. As I mentioned before, you can also accept donations if you are in a position to do so. Start off by giving free sessions to friends and family to gain your confidence before you decide if you are going to charge and what you are going to charge. When considering your charges, keep in mind that you are not charging for the Reiki energy you are charging people for your time and the effort you put forth to learn this method of healing. If you are going to make using Reiki for healing as your life work, then you will have to eventually at some point set a price to charge others for your services. If you wish to discuss this with me as you work through this course, feel free to email me with your concerns and questions. During or after a Reiki session some people have emotional or spiritual releases. Some exhibit this in many different ways and yet some do not exhibit any signs that they have had a Reiki session. This is part of the reason it is so important to keep all sessions confidential, as this may not be something that person wants others to know. It is your job as a practitioner of Reiki to be there for support in explaining what is going on. You should always tell people that they may go through a cleansing period after any session they have. Later on you will be learning what a cleansing period is. Part of that support is in listening to them, but you do not have the responsibility to solve their problems, only to listen. Like stated earlier, refer those that need it to the proper medical or psychological professionals. Do not let your clients talk you into becoming their whipping-post or their therapist.

What does Reiki feel like? I have had many people ask me what does it feel like to give or receive Reiki. The only answer I have is that it is different for each person. Some people say that while giving Reiki their hands are warm or tingly, and others say that they feel nothing different in their hands. Yet others report seeing bright colors, feeling vibrations or hearing sounds while giving or receiving sessions. You do not have to have physical evidence of the Reiki to believe that it works. Actually you really dont have to believe it works even, it just does. Although there are at times one or more physical sensations associated with Reiki, it is most common for people to feel something deeper on a more emotional or spiritual level. This goes for both giving and receiving Reiki. People have expressed that they felt everything from a deep sadness over past memories resurfacing to feeling a great exuberance or an overwhelming sense of joy. All of us are different and while many do feel something on this level there are still many that may not feel anything. Not even all of your own experiences with Reiki will be the same. I personally experience warmth and tingling in my hands every time I give Reiki, however my resulting feelings when receiving Reiki have been different each time. These differences occur even when performing self-healing. Just know that Reiki is all good and cannot ever do any harm. Therefore, regardless of what you do or do not feel know that the Reiki is working for the greatest good for everyone involved. As you are giving Reiki to yourself and others you must learn to let go and let the energy do its work. You do not need to be worried with how it does or should feel to you or others, nor do you need to worry with the outcome. Reiki is an intelligent energy that comes from God, therefore it will know when, where, how much and if healing is needed. Let the Reiki do its job and you do yours, of just being the conduit for the energy to be channeled through.

Chakras For the purposes of Reiki Level 1 I will briefly go over the Chakras, what they are and where they are. The word Chakra itself is a Sanskrit word meaning wheel. Chakras are the energy centers in our bodies. These seven centers, each with a specific color and function associated with it, are what process the life force energy in us. I would like to point out that working with Chakras is very basic in Reiki. You will not be tuning, changing, clearing, unblocking, etc. your Chakras, or anyone elses, with what you are learning here. Chakras are very complex and it takes many years of study and training to be able to manipulate them. In traditional western style Reiki the Chakras are where all the hand positions are held. However, in other forms of Reiki there are more hand positions and places to use them. For now we will concentrate on just the Chakras. All of them are located in the center of the body and can be reached from the front or back of the body. The following table will explain the basics you need to know about the Chakras.

Chakra Root Sacral Solar Plexus Heart Throat Brow Crown

Location Base of the spine Lower Abdomen Between navel & base of sternum Below collar bone Base of neck Slightly above & between eyebrows Above & on top of head

Main Focus Survival; Physical needs Reproduction; Sexuality; Creativity Self Will; Personal Power Compassion; Love; Relationships Communication; Self-expression Intuition; Wisdom; Enlightenment Spirituality; Divine Guidance

Color Association Red Orange Yellow Green or Pink Blue Indigo or Violet White, Violet, or Gold

I teach Chakras and how to position your hands on or above them, rather than using the Healing Guide that is thought to be given to beginner students by Usui-Sensei. The reason behind this is the hand positions originally taught were given as locations to heal certain diseases, ills, etc. Since a person cannot treat, cure or diagnose specific diseases, ills, etc. in the US without a license to practice medicine, I have chosen to use the more generalized methods of overall spiritual energy healing. If you are interested in the historical value of seeing what is thought to have been originally taught there is a translation on the internet which can be found here: http://www.threshold.ca/reiki/Usui_Reiki_Hikkei.html . This link will take you to a translation of the The Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai Handbook; the Healing Guide is only a portion of the entire work.

Hand Position and Placement Hand positions are the same for self-healing and healing others. You also will hold your hands the same way regardless of whether you are touching the body or holding your hands above it. This makes it much easier to learn and then to remember. Start off by holding your hands in front of you, palms away from you, fingers together, and thumbs tucked close to your hand. When giving Reiki you will hold your hands in this manner with your palms slightly cupped and facing towards the area you are directing the energy. During a session you will start at the top of the head and place your hands on/above each Chakra, working down from the top, putting your hands on the knees and then on the soles of the feet last. In some instances you will feel like you want to place your hands in other places, such as over and arm, leg, etc. In those instances hold your hands in the same position that you use for the Chakras. After you practice this several times, it will no longer feel weird or awkward to you.

Cleansing Period Some people go through a cleansing period after Reiki Attunements and Healing Sessions. This period is different for everyone. Some people have reported getting a cold or flu like symptoms. Others feel emotionally or spiritually drained or charged. While yet others feel nothing at all. There are a few people that even report feeling dizzy or lightheaded immediately after a session. When you begin to give Reiki sessions to others make them aware of what they may or may not feel. Suggest to others that they avoid red meats, alcohol, nicotine, and caffeine for about a week after a Reiki session, especially if they are experiencing any problems. Also, suggest they increase their daily water intake, as this does help to flush the system. Be aware of these things during your self-healing sessions. Since for the first 45 days you will be in an adjustment period you will already be drinking plenty of water and trying to limit the intake of alcohol, nicotine, red meats and caffeine; you should not have has many problems as others may. Please discuss with me immediately any and all problems you experience. Other Reiki Masters and Teachers teach that there is no such thing as a cleansing period. Some believe that people will only experience these things if you tell them that they will. I do not totally agree with that view point, as I have had people tell me they are experiencing things of this nature without me telling them prior to a session that they may. On the other hand I do also believe that some people will tell you they are experiencing things they are not really, just from the power of suggestion. As you get to know those you are working with and as you learn more about Reiki you can decide this for yourself.

When to give Reiki Many people ask when should they give Reiki or when should they not give Reiki. My answer to that question is simple, give Reiki as often or as little as you want, and for whatever you feel drawn. Reiki is a good and intelligent energy. It is the unconditional Love that comes from God to us, and cannot do harm, as I said before. So as far as I am concerned you can give Reiki for everything, but use common sense if the person obviously needs medical attention urge them to get it. I have seen where other teachers tell their students that there are times when they should not give Reiki. They say if the giver is not feeling well or this stipulation or for

2008 Mary Morgan Tailored Life Coaching

that reason; or if the receiver has an infection, or this or that: then Reiki should not be given. For the reason I stated above I do not buy into this. I was taught that Reiki is always good and can do no harm; after working with Reiki and further research, it is what I believe to be the correct way. Just be aware that if someone has a serious problem they do need to see a medical professional. If someone comes to you and asks you to give them a mini session because they have a headache, then fine do so. If, on the other hand, they have an ear infection, you should tell them to seek medical attention. You may also want to do a session with them before and after they go to the doctor, but they definitely need a doctor; because you cannot cure infections. Reiki is not a substitute for common sense, good judgment, or medical treatment. Just as with any other method of healing you should combine it with these three things to bring about over all good health.

Preparing for your Attunement First I want to explain that I am not giving you Reiki with this attunement. You already have it; we are all born with it. This attunement simply makes you aware of the Reiki energy that you already possess and the teachings in this course will show you how to use that awareness. Keep that in mind while preparing for your attunement and when practicing Reiki on yourself and with others. With that said; set aside a time when you can be free from distractions for 30 minutes. Make sure you are comfortable, either sitting or laying down. Prepare yourself and the area about 5 minutes prior to our appointment. You may choose to light candles, play very soft music, etc. However, none of those things are needed, and would only help you to relax should you choose to use them. We do not need to use the phone or computer since our connection is through God. Once you have prepared your area and are comfortable, set your intention to receive this attunement. Then all you have to do is lay back and enjoy the energy. You may or may not feel anything. It doesnt matter. The attunement will still work. If you have time after your attunement I suggest you take another 30 minutes and do your first self-healing session. If you do not have the time right then, try to do your first session for yourself as soon as you can, then begin your 45 day adjustment period. Please keep in mind when you schedule your appointment that I am on the east coast of the US. When you contact me to schedule the appointment have the time difference

2008 Mary Morgan Tailored Life Coaching

already figured out, I suggest you use the convertor at this site: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html , and when scheduling tell me the time in my time zone as well as the time in your time zone. My schedule is somewhat flexible, but please, pick at least two different times that would work best for you. I will choose the best time for me and respond to you confirming the date and time. If for any reason you cannot keep to the appointed time I need to know at least 2 days in advance in order to keep my schedule organized. If you fail to notify me, and fail to keep the appointment I will only re-schedule with you one time. If you again fail to notify me or to keep the appointment I will be forced to ask you to seek another Reiki Teacher. If a true unforeseeable emergency comes up, let me know as soon as possible so that we can reschedule your attunement.

Assignment 1 1. Set up a time with me to have your Level 1 attunement, if you havent already. Use this email address: tailoredlifecoaching@gmail.com to set up your attunement and for all correspondence throughout the rest of your course. If you have questions about preparing for your attunement let me know when you send me the times you are free. 2. Write a paper explaining why you want to learn Reiki, and what you expect to gain from learning Reiki. Include things such as; what problems or issues you are having or what problems or issues others may be having you think Reiki will help with. Describe what your attitude towards Reiki is now. You can also answer these questions if they apply and will help you with writing this paper. Are you healthy over all? Physically? Mentally? Spiritually? Are there changes you want to make in your life? If so, what are they? This does not have to be a formal paper, you can write it in the form of a letter or email if that makes it easier for you. Most importantly though write about you and why you want to learn Reiki. Email this paper to me when you finish it, telling me what day your 45 day adjustment period will start on. Once you have received your attunement and have emailed your paper to me, you can move on to the next section.

2008 Mary Morgan Tailored Life Coaching

Set your Intention Prior to any healing session you must set your intention. This allows you to tap into the energy that is there and to relax and clear your mind of distractions. I suggest that you put your hands in front of you in the Gassho position, or prayer position, clear your mind, close your eyes, and then focus completely on what your intention for this session is. If you cannot set your focus on a specific intention you can just say Reiki. Other examples of what you could set your intention to are: May _____ find the source of their problem. May______ be healed of their problem.
Gassho Position, Prayer Position

Let Reiki flow through me for the greater good of all concerned. You may say anything else that may feel or sound right to you, just be very careful in not naming a specific problem or set of problems, as this can be misconstrued by some as a diagnosis.

Importance of Self-Healings Giving Reiki to yourself is very important, as you begin and even when you are experienced. Having a set schedule of self Reiki healings is a good idea, daily sessions would be best. You should set aside a time and place for your self-healings so that you will have no distractions. You can never give yourself too much! Doing self-healing also allows you to practice as you get going and are learning to use Reiki. Some people are embarrassed to touch themselves, if you are, you will also probably be embarrassed to touch others, and it will show. Just as with your clients, you do your own sessions with your clothes on so that you are used to this. If, after your initial adjustment period, you cant do regular sessions with yourself because of your schedule or small children then do what you can when you can. You can do little mini session either before or after taking a shower or bath, right before bedtime, right after you wake up, or even while taking a break at work. If you feel weird at first, that is ok, you will get used to it. Most people often are uncomfortable with any kind of touch and one reason you need to do these self-healing sessions is so you get comfortable with touch. When giving Reiki to yourself pay attention to where your hands are and that you are not applying pressure. Our hands

2008 Mary Morgan Tailored Life Coaching

should never push down or apply any type of pressure, as this could be misconstrued as massage. As you actually start to give Reiki, I will ask that you focus on just you for the first 45 days, if at all possible. This will give you the time needed to get used to the Reiki, experiment with hand positioning, and start to feel more confident with yourself and your ability.

Reiki Sessions for Yourself Start each session, even mini-sessions, by stating your intention. Say a prayer along with your intention if you are inclined to do so. After setting your intention and saying your prayer you are ready to continue on with the session. Place your hands on top of your head, crown chakra, and imagine your connection to the Source of Reiki. Depending on your beliefs this can be done however is best for you. For some it helps to visualize this connection as a string running from the Source to the crown chakra. Focus on and feel the energy going from your crown chakra into your palms. Focus on this for a few minutes, and then visualize the energy coming out from your palms. You are supplied Reiki energy continually through your crown chakra and you focus and direct it with the palms of your hands. The Crown important thing is to allow yourself to just be, dont worry about the outcome, dont focus on anything other than the intention you have already set, just let the energy flow through you; remember that you are not doing the healing you are just the conduit. Once you have worked with Reiki for a while this will become easier, and you may even start to be aware of the energy all the time. But, this is a good way to always start a session with yourself, in order to further clear your mind of everyday things. Think of it this way; we are not called human DO-ings, we are human BE-ings; so just BE and dont try to DO. For the hand positions and the order to do them in see the section after the Final Exam titled: Hand Positions for self-healing After you get more comfortable with working with the Reiki you can choose to use these positions or others as you see fit. You do not have to always follow this list as an absolute. If your leg hurts then give it Reiki, if your arm hurts then give it Reiki. These

2008 Mary Morgan Tailored Life Coaching

are just positions to give you guidance and get you started; however, many practitioners continue to use these positions on themselves and others even after becoming more familiar with the Reiki energy. Hold each position for about 4-5 minutes, unless you feel drawn to hold the position longer or drawn to moving to a new position quicker. Do what feels right to you during each session. Make sure that you practice picking your hands up completely before moving to the next position or area. Some like to assume the Gassho position in between each area to ensure they have removed their hands completely. It is important to remove your hands completely when working with someone else because if you slide or drag your hands across the body it can be taken as a massage technique and without a license for massage, that motion is illegal. That is why you need to practice this way to start with; once you are more comfortable with using Reiki and giving sessions to others you can do your own sessions in whatever manner you wish. You may want to end your session with a prayer, meditation, or an affirmation. You may simply wish to give thanks and show gratitude for the energy you were allowed to use. Whichever seems most fitting to you and your beliefs. Remember that using Reiki energy is a gift, and all gifts deserve to be properly received and thanks given for. You should write your experiences in your daily journal, or take notes on how each session differs from the previous sessions. This will give you something to look back on as you continue with learning Reiki. Write in your journal when you try different hand positions or different areas; giving a detailed description of the results, so that you can determine over time what you feel works best and what doesnt. At this point, I want you to concentrate on yourself for 45 days, as mentioned before. It is best if you complete this self work/adjustment time before you begin working with others. If you feel the need or a calling to begin to work with others before your selfwork is complete, then by all means follow that calling. However, if you start to become lax in your self-healing then stop working with others and return to doing just self sessions for the remainder of the time. The 45 day adjustment period is mostly just a guideline, and the number of days is what I have seen with my own students as the average that most end up taking; I did not arbitrarily pick the number 45. Some teachers use 21 days because that was the number of days Usui-Sensei was on the mountain before he re-discovered the Reiki energy; as for why other time frames have been used by others, I dont know, it is possible they have determined that to work best.

2008 Mary Morgan Tailored Life Coaching

I was taught Reiki by only doing self-work for 21-30 days. I noticed with myself and with others that I have taught that this time frame does not allow for enough time to experiment, get into a daily habit, or to get familiar with using Reiki. That is why I have increased that time to 45 days. Some teachers say 21 days, some say 30, and I have seen where some teachers make students stick to self healing for six months before letting them move on to giving Reiki to others. Once you begin to work with others they may ask you questions that you will need to already know the answers to. So take these 45 days to prepare yourself and to learn all you can about Reiki. Use this as a time for learning, healing, and changing yourself into someone that is knowledgeable on the subject of Reiki. You by no stretch of the imagination are to learn all there is to know in 45 days; however, this will give you a good foundation. I was taught that this period of time is the cleansing period and I have seen that many teachers teach this. I have decided to teach this as an adjustment period because there is more going on than just cleansing. You are adjusting to yourself in more than just physical, emotional and spiritual cleansing. Although, you may still display some of the same problems experienced during a cleansing period, but you may have them after each session or for a longer time frame than those that have had only one session.

Assignment 2 If you plan to use Reiki to help others then you must first use it to help yourself, so please take the time to do this assignment in its entirety and take it seriously. This next 45 days are set aside for you to practice and to heal yourself. Set aside at least 30 minutes each day for your self-healing sessions, knowing that some may take less time and some may take longer. If you are trying to figure out where in your schedule you are going to pull this half an hour from, then you may want to also rethink why you wanted to learn Reiki. If you are too busy to spend 30 minutes on healing yourself everyday for the next six weeks, this may not be the right path for you to choose at this time in your life. While you are going through this adjustment period try to avoid caffeine, nicotine, red meats, and alcohol. If you simply cannot cut those things out of your life completely or just do not want to do so, then try to limit your intake levels of these four things as much as you can. Also, while adjusting you should drink plenty of water each day, and get as much rest as you can.

2008 Mary Morgan Tailored Life Coaching

When you finish with the 45 days write another paper. Write about your self-healing sessions. List any concerns you had or still have. Have any of your thoughts changed since you started your self-healing sessions? Describe how you are feeling now. Share with me all that you feel inclined to share. Use this opportunity to ask me questions or bring up any problems that you had that have not already been resolved. If you dont feel any different or didnt feel anything during your sessions, then be honest, write about that also. If you decided to use a journal during this 45 days, that would be a good place to start in writing the second paper. If you feel that you are ready to move on in your study of Reiki prior to finishing the 45 days of adjustment, email me, and we can discuss your reasons for feeling this way. It is very possible that you may not need that long, not everyone does. On the other side of that, if you feel you need more than 45 days, let me know and we can discuss that also. These time frames are guidelines not strict set in stone rules. Each person is different and therefore this is to be done at your pace, not mine and not someone elses. We can work through this at your pace. When you have completed the second paper email it to the same email address you have already been using. Then move on to the next part, which is using the hands-on method on others.

2008 Mary Morgan Tailored Life Coaching

Hands on Sessions for Others Now that you have completed your adjustment period and self work, you are ready to move on to doing Reiki for others. Sharing Reiki with others is wonderful, but you should start with asking family and close friends to volunteer to give you experience working with others. The reason for this is you will be more relaxed and comfortable with people you know. Be aware that if your kids volunteer to let you practice on them, they may not sit still as long as you would like, and many of the sessions will not be complete. Do not get upset with them, as children soak up the energy much faster than adults and feel like they are done before you think the session should be over. When giving Reiki to others both of you need to be as relaxed as possible. If you are not relaxed it is harder to open yourself as a channel for the energy to flow through. To ensure the other person is as relaxed as possible have them either lay down or sit in a reclining type chair. It is best to use a massage table, or an actual recliner, but if you do not have either one of these that is fine, use what you have. Remember that Reiki is a type of energy, and will work from the front or back of the body. You may have others either lay on their front or back, whichever is most comfortable for them. Some people like to have a blanket over them during sessions, so have a freshly laundered one available to offer. Be mindful of the close proximity you will be in with the other person. Do not wear over powering scents, as some may be allergic or simply find it over bearing and therefore cannot relax. If you smoke or drink coffee; either brush your teeth or have gum or mints handy right before each session, so as not to offend the other person. Having the gum or mints prior to each session is not a bad idea even if you do not smoke or drink coffee. Depending on where you are going to place the person receiving the session, you may choose to stand or use a chair with wheels on it. It you are standing you will be freer to move around their body as needed. If you are not comfortable standing and have decided to use a chair, one without arms works best. Make sure to prepare the area prior to the session so that you do not keep the other person waiting. If you are using candles, incense, music, etc.; have it already set up. Remember though that some people have allergies, so make sure that you inquire about anything you plan to burn or smolder prior to lighting it. Also, some people may be too distracted or uncomfortable with certain types of music so ask about your selection of music before beginning the session. The key to doing all of this prior to starting the session is to have no interruptions during a session.

2008 Mary Morgan Tailored Life Coaching

Sometimes when you are first beginning to give Reiki sessions, and are practicing on family and friends, others will want to hang-out and watch. Try to discourage this. Not only could it make you nervous, it can be distracting in other ways for both you and the receiver. Treat these practice sessions just as you would real sessions with real clients in the future, and make sure you keep the confidentiality of the person you are giving Reiki to. Look back over the legal and ethical areas previously discussed. Make sure, even with friends and family you follow the guidelines. This will give you practice so that you do not forgot anything when working with others that you may not know as well. Remember that you do not have to touch a person for Reiki to work. If either of you feel uncomfortable with touching then just hold your hands a few inches from their body. It is not necessary to remove any of your jewelry or theirs for Reiki to work. However, do be mindful of your jewelry so that it doesnt get tangled in their hair or clothing when doing the hand positions on or near the head or neck. Also, it is a good idea to not wear bracelets that dangle too much as this may distract the other person. Along these same lines, be mindful of any piercings or jewelry the other person may be wearing that could get caught on your hands as you perform the various hand positions. It is best to keep talking to a minimum during the session. However, if you and or the receiver feel the need to talk do so. The key here is to not let the session go by while either of you are endlessly chattering about things that are not related to the session. This takes away your concentration in what you are doing and can prevent you from being open enough to allow the energy to flow through you. You can suggest to the receiver that they may want to close their eyes during the session, but leave the decision to do so up to them. Likewise, you may want to close your eyes during the session, but if you feel youd rather leave them open, that works too. Go through the same steps that you have been going through in your self-healing sessions. Set your intention, and then open yourself to the Reiki energy. When doing sessions for others it is a little uncomfortable for you both if you take the time to place your hands on your own crown chakra to do this. An alternate way of opening yourself is to hold the Gassho, prayer, position a little longer setting in your mind your connection to the Source, the energy entering your crown chakra and flowing out through your hands. Starting with the crown chakra, move from position to position in order. Remember to hold your hands in each position for a few minutes to allow the Reiki to do its work. It is also important to remember to complete each position, lift your hands completely, and

2008 Mary Morgan Tailored Life Coaching

then reposition them at the next area. Remember dragging, gliding or sliding your hands could be misinterpreted as massage. For the hand positions and the order to do them in see the section after the Final Exam titled: Hand Positions for healing others When you finish with the root chakra, move to the knees; place one hand on/above each knee after a few minutes move to the feet. If the person is in a position where you can reach the soles of their feet; place one hand on or near the sole of each foot. If the person is sitting in a chair and their feet are on the floor; place one hand on/above the top of each foot. Just like when you do Reiki sessions for yourself, you can choose to use other hand positions as you see fit. You can position your hands on/above the receivers arms, legs, hands, etc. if you feel drawn to do so. You can do this in any order that feels right to you. After you have finished with all the hand positions you feel necessary, you should sweep the receivers aura of negative energy that may be left over. To do this, hold your hands slightly above the receivers body, with your palms facing down. Starting at the head and working down, brush the aura. When you reach the feet, flick your hands towards the ground, with a motion like you are shaking water from your fingers. This motion will also release any energy exchanged between the two of you during the session. Some people like to wash their hands in cold water after sessions, to break the energy connection. When you are finished with the session remember to give thanks for the energy. You can enter into prayer or mutual meditation with the receiver if that is what you both desire or you can simply give the thanks. Some practitioners of Reiki like to sit and socialize with each client for a few minutes after a session. If this appeals to you, you may want to have on hand water or some herbal tea to offer for refreshment. Throughout all of your sessions, remember that you are not the healing factor; you are just the conduit for the Reiki to flow through. If you are too concerned with the outcome or if you try to direct the energy you may feel worn out or tired after a session. In this case, just do a short Reiki self-healing session, and relax and let the Reiki do what it does.

Assignment 3 After learning how to do hands on sessions with another person you need to practice it. Over the next month I want you to give at least six Reiki Sessions and record your experiences and results. For this assignment I want you to use a different person for each session so that you get used to giving Reiki to others and not get comfortable with just one person. If you do not have six willing volunteers, let me know. But, do the six sessions even if it is the same one or two people. If you choose you can do more than the six sessions. If you want to fill out the client studies for more than six and have me look over them, that is fine, just email those to me along with the original six that are required. If you have any questions or concerns that arise while doing these practice sessions, contact me with them at the time, or record them on the client studies. Use the following format for each of your client studies. Once you have completed all six client studies and sent them in move on to the section on working with plants and animals.

2008 Mary Morgan Tailored Life Coaching

Client Study for Assignment 3 & 4

Client Name: Sex: Date of Birth: Relationship to you: Does this person have any health problems? If so, please explain. Did you have any problems during the session? If so, please explain. Did the receiver have any questions during the session? If so please list the questions and how you answered it. What, if anything, did you feel during the session? What, if anything, did the receiver feel during the session? How did the receiver feel after the session? Ask the receiver if they feel that Reiki would help them in any way. Give their response. Did you notice anything not listed above that you want to ask or point out about this session?

2008 Mary Morgan Tailored Life Coaching

Plants & Animals If you feel inclined to do so, you can give Reiki sessions to plants and animals also. Actually, they love it just as much as we do! There is an assignment for this section, and even if you do not ever plan to use Reiki for plants and/or animals I require that you work through this section and complete this assignment. If you have an allergy that prevents you from doing this work let me know, but I still want you to read through this section. If you cannot complete the assignment at the end, we will discuss other options for meeting this requirement. Plants and animals tend to soak up Reiki very quickly so you do not need to spend as much time with a session for them. Plants take the least amount of time, and there are a couple different ways to give Reiki to different types of plants. For potted plants you can place your hands on the outside of the pot and imagine the Reiki energy flowing straight into the roots. For bigger plants and trees you can either stand facing the plant or tree with your hands held out toward it and imagine the Reiki flowing into the plant/tree, filling it up. For very large trees, you can simply place your hands right on the trunk and let the Reiki flow directly into the tree. There really arent any rules with how and where to give Reiki to plants so experiment and have fun with it! Animals have Chakras, just like we do, that can be used as a guide for placing your hands. Use this picture along with the chart and picture of the human Chakras which you worked with before in determining where each Chakra is on an animal. Animals all have the same Chakra locations so the places you would put your hands for a dog would be the same whether you were giving Reiki to a cat, dog, horse, ferret, or any other four legged animal.

2008 Mary Morgan Tailored Life Coaching

Just like with people, animals all respond differently to Reiki. Damara, my Belgian Teuverin, normally will just lay there and go to sleep and would just continue to lay there forever if I didnt stop. But, there are times when I have given her Reiki and she acts like it has made her 100 times more hyper than she already is. My cat, Felipe, on the other hand always go to sleep during me giving him Reiki. I have also noticed that when he goes to sleep while receiving Reiki he doesnt snore as much as usual. It is important to note that you should never try to hold your animals down or force them to be still. Just hold your hands where they will let you, for as long as they let you. If they get up and walk away, then just let them do so. As with plants, experiment with sessions on animals and have fun! Assignment 4 For this assignment you can use the same client study sheet that you used when working with people. Just fill in what you can or what makes sense to fill in. Getting the form right isnt important, getting the practice giving Reiki to plants and animals is the goal here. Do two plant sessions and two animal sessions. Email the results of these four sessions to me when you have them completed. Once you have done this, please go ahead and take the final exam.

2008 Mary Morgan Tailored Life Coaching

Your Lineage I am not so sure that I feel lineage is that important. I have several reasons for feeling this way, foremost being that we are all born with the Reiki energy in us, and the only reason we have Teachers and Masters to attune us is to make us aware of that energy. Secondly, it is unimportant to me because there are so many different views, opinions, and teachings out there that all contradict each other, yet supposedly all came from the same man. Everyone cant be right, and it is nearly impossible at this point to determine who is correct and who is misinformed. However, I do feel that without having Masters or Teachers to pass on what they have learned from others and by working with Reiki themselves it would be even more of a mess than it already is and the art of using Reiki for healing may be lost again, just as it was before Usui-Sensei re-discovered it. Please do not take my remarks about lineage to mean that I am disrespectful of this tradition or that I am disrespecting any that do not share my views. Those are simply put, my views and mine alone. Many others act as if the lineage is the most important part there is, so for when you are asked, here is your lineage: Mikao Usui, Chujiro Hayashi, Hawayo Takata, Phyllis Furomoto, Claudia Hoffman, Mary Shaw, Christine Henderson, Bruce Way, Ariane McMinn, Mona Khalaf, Dharmadevi, Mary Morgan, You
