In a sense, we are all transmitting, or broadcasting energy all of the time via our thoughts, feelings and beliefs, as everything is energy and has frequency. Yet I wanted to go deeper here and share with you what I know to be possible, which I am referring to as the “sacred art of transmission” as it is a much more powerful, precise and rare spiritual and healing gift.
It is the ability to transmit spiritual, healing, and intuitive awakenings through look, touch, voice, or even mere presence. It has been over twenty years, but I will never forget my earliest memories of energy transmissions. While some happened through my spiritual teachers, many of them occurred during Reiki healing sessions, and then in teaching and attuning others to this awesome healing art.
Reiki Energy Healing Attunements are Transmissions
After I met my first spiritual teacher, I decided to take a Reiki workshop even though I had never experienced it myself. I was just so curious and my colleague had told me of her experience awhile back, but at that time I was not open, as I had no mental “box” to put it in and kind of shelved the whole concept.
I am so grateful I did. Because I noticed that while there were many great and wise people I knew who were meditating also with the same Master, and most for much longer than me, it was not common for anyone but the energy healers to expect to be able to transmit this potent energy and spiritual space. It was clearly a level of empowerment that I came to appreciate only much later. And it had to do with owning the ability to transmit energy, not just to sit in the energy.
In Reiki Level 1 there are 4 initiatory attunements, which I couldn’t possibly comprehend at that time. Reiki attunements are initiations or transmissions of energy that open the healing channels or energy pathways within everyone.
Yet I now come to realize that the Reiki Master is passing down the ability to awaken or open the healing channels that lie dormant within us all, through these specific attunements. In this instance, everyone else in class was tingling, but I feared I was a Reiki “dud” when we began to practice on each other, and everyone else’s hands were tingling, and I got nada, bupkis.
Until we got to the final two attunements. And something DEFINITELY happened. I actually heard and felt a spirit man initiating me, in addition to the woman teaching the class. When I asked who it was, I got that it was the founder, Dr. Mikao Usui, himself. I asked if he did all of the attunements with her, and she looked stunned. I can only guess that was not everyone’s experience.
Then it began happening: not from me but thru me…
I have taught students, who have supposedly already taken Reiki classes with another teacher, and they were very surprised that they felt such tangible energy flow, or experienced such deep meditation states, expansion, and 3rd eye intuitive openings. I was surprised that they didn’t experience that with other teachers. It pains me, but there seem to be many people now teaching a much diluted version of what I received.
It is way more than just intention. It is more like you begin to embody the universal life energy. I now have two decades of validation that direct transmission is happening through me, and not just in Reiki attunements or private sessions. It begins to flow through you like water…and not just via the hands. One Reiki student was walking with me and we stopped at a small waterfall flowing into a pond. She gasped, and said that something was coming out of my eyes; a light, and it felt just like a healing session.
Another time, I met with a new neighbor and she was describing her chronic back pain. I felt deep compassion for her and wanted to help in some way, but it felt too early in the conversation to suggest a Reiki session. But she immediately felt relief, and asked “are you doing that thing you do, cuz my back feels better and better.”
Over time, the knowing what is possible, turns to probable. Now, with very little effort on my part I can align and focus my eyes, my feet, my heart, my thoughts and healing happens, calm serene stillness descends, light radiates. I used to be shy about stating these things, feeling like it was ego. But now I know I must tell you all what is possible for you, just as it became possible for me. I see my students stepping into this mind-blowing reality that they, too can transmit healing energy. There is nothing that delights me more!
hi kumari, i was attuned years ago by a woman that was sick and sat in a recliner drinking tea. it was one on one. she kept saying you already know all this stuff…. well, i didn’t feel like i got a lot out of that teaching but i did get attuned. i have done reiki on myself for years sporadically. this week, i got up the courage to finally give reiki to others. friends and family and no money exchange. then something wonderful happened today, i felt a strong pull to go to a mexican restaurant where i know the family that owns it. i wasn’t hungry. i get there and the 6 month old baby is sick from vaccines. running nose, crying a lot, constipated. i didn’t even think of reiki. i was reading a book about healing and the grandma asked about it. we talked. as she walked away i was told to offer reiki for baby lucy. i was unsure but i made the suoffer, briefly explaining what reiki is. they said yes and baby lucy loved it. she calmed right down, her grandma couldn’t believe the heat coming off my hands. baby lucy wanted to hold my hands.
i wonderful week of stepping into it, finally. if i had the money i would come for this weekend but i am in wisconsin and i cannot afford the journey and class. but thank you for writing about your experiences, kumari. they are guideposts.
Thanks for sharing your attunement experience, and for claiming your healing connection in spite of it! ANd following your heart…and stepping into your healing gifts. All in divine timing…and i treasure your comments about my writing my experiences as guideposts; that is SO wonderful for these ears to hear!!
