Reiki Master: : the Turning Point
We cannot heal what we cannot feel – John Bradshaw
In Levels I, 2 and 3 the Reiki practitioner is being challenged to understand energy and the need for study and training. At the master level, this becomes the conscious dynamic of one’s lifestyle. We are urged at every level of being to expand and explore, yet are equally opposed at every level by a counterforce Being human is the nterforce. story of expansion and contraction. It is this way in the life of every individual. Level 3 introduced the idea of a fragmented self. This isn’t really true. It’s like trying to decide which part of the tree is the most significant; root, trunk, branch, twig or leaf. The body needs energy for biological function while the mind needs it for mental/emotional processing. Life’s dynamic is the flow and intensity of energy. Lifestyle, disease, energy anxiety, joy and happiness summarize the way energy is being used. The body requires food, water and other resources but there is a lot of latitude in how, where and when they are obtained. The ego needs obtained a positive self-reflection in order to thrive but this can be difficult if the body is diseased or traumatized. The spirit is uplifted by love and belonging but if the ego is twisted by anger, guilt and shame, it finds rejection and disdain instead. Getting things into balance in a way that supports fulfillment and self-realization is the game of life. Reiki is about clearing the connection between the crown centre, the heart and the rest of the body. The Reiki Master’s job is to find the best way of accomplishing this and helping others to do the same. Each of us has an image of he who we are hidden within the psyche. It is in the stars for us to clarify and embrace that image. . “Integration of mind, body and energy makes healing possible. It is not enough to merely understand without action or to merely move energy without understanding. It is the integration of these two currents that creates the changes we seek in our lives.” (Judith, 1996) Thus one of the master’s tasks is to help people to feel again. udith, Read about liberation and manifestation on pages 14-15 Eastern Body Western Mind Read about archetypes on pages 347-354 Eastern Body Western Mind

Being a Master
We make our destinies by our choice of gods - Virgil
“The seventh chakra is related to the pursuit of knowledge, the formation of a worldview, and the awakening of spiritual pursuits. Each new piece of information is filtered through the developing worldview (a constantly changing structure), forming the basis of all future behaviour. The seventh chakra is largely concerned with the search for meaning – asking questions about the nature of life, the universe and the Self within.” (Judith, 1996) It isn’t necessary to feel like a Reiki master to be one. The rule is to put your heart into what you do and do it the best you can. This is between you and the witness. Depth of commitment develops the upper chakras and brings a feeling of cosmic belonging.

The Witness
The word attunement describes the process whereby something is made to adjust to or become accustom to something else. For the Reiki practitioner, this means to adjust to a new view of one’s self – a view that includes higher thought, a higher purpose and the witness. To comprehend the witness is to merge with one’s true self. “The witness is the core of the Self, an indestructible spark of divinity.” (Judith, 1996) Read about consciousness on pages 395-396 Eastern Body Western Mind Read about diving in the river of consciousness on pages 396-398 Eastern Body Western Mind Read about the witness on page 399 Eastern Body Western Mind Read about discovering the witness, higher self on pages 426-428 Eastern Body Western Mind

DAI KO MYO or DAI KU MYO
“DAI KO MYO indicates light, clarity, intention, understanding, presence and silence. It is the symbol used in initiations to harmonize human beings to the energy of Reiki. DAI KO MYO opens, enlightens and protects. It is Light which nourishes and fills, leads the way and rests the spirit. It translates as ‘great shining light’, ‘great luminous shining’ or ‘great enlightenment’ and represents the beating heart of Reiki. This is the light to enlighten one’s path, to provide the understanding of one’s true self and to access the indwelling Spirit.” (Courtesy Free Reiki® School Padua Italy) There are different symbols given for Reiki master by various schools. Studies have found, not surprisingly, that the symbols do not carry any special power. Symbols serve to remind us of the power in ourselves. Draw DAI KO MYO or DAI KU MYO from the inside out (the inner spiral). Then draw the upper (top) arch beginning at a point on the lower. Finish with the bolt and wave line. This is symbolic of merging one’s self with the indwelling Self (as above, so below). To the Reiki practitioner, this is like a cross. Though symbols have a certain mystical attraction, it is the lifeforce energy that is important.

Autonomy
The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are – Joseph Campbell
A master is considered to be a religious or spiritual teacher, suggesting a connection with higher Self and the witness to the divine within. This requires certain independence and an ability to firmly grasp the essence behind the substance of personal ego. The master’s ego is in a constant state of surrender, though not at the beginning. He or she grows into this permeable state through time and experience. A master’s role is to bring the crown’s luminosity to the world. This requires autonomy. Read about energy and activity on pages 172-173 Eastern Body Western Mind Read about autonomy on pages 173-175 Eastern Body Western Mind Read about individuation on pages 175-176 Eastern Body Western Mind Read about ego identity on pages 176-178 Eastern Body Western Mind Read about will on pages 178-180 Eastern Body Western Mind Read about self-esteem on pages 180-181 Eastern Body Western Mind

Relationships
A master is looked up to and respected, for above all else, his or her role is to love
As Reiki master you will have many close relationships. Self-awareness is vital for higher growth. Good boundaries will prevent bad judgments. Deal with personal issues so they don’t interfere with your giving.

In real love, you want the other person’s good and in romantic love you just want the other person (Judith, 1996)

Read about balance on pages 230 and 237 Eastern Body Western Mind Read about forming relationships on page 43 Eastern Body Western Mind Read about freedom and attachment on pages 239-240 Eastern Body Western Mind Read about internalized relationships on pages 256-258 Eastern Body Western Mind

There are four basic rules to good relationships – including the one you have with yourself. Open and honest communication establishes connection and contact. Contact and reconciliation builds trust. Trust builds the foundation of mutual love, caring, cooperation and support. Mutual support builds justice and equity.

Attunements
Attunements are ceremonial stages that act to shift our focus. In level 1 the initiate is introduced to the concept of personal and universal power. In level 2, he or she is asked to perceive time and distance as a function of the universal nervous system. In level 3, they are asked to examine self. At the master level the initiate is asked to embrace the witness and connect to the universal soul. It is important that this process occurs in steps.

Ritual and Ceremony
A ritual is a custom or habit. In level one initiation, it is customary to introduce the notion of personal and universal power. In level 2, the custom is to introduce the concept that time/space is not absolute. Level three introduced the concept of self and level four, the idea of mastery. The master is not introducing something new; rather he or she is re-introducing to the initiate something very old – the indwelling Spirit. Ritual gives a sense of right attitude, significance and presence. Attunements should be performed in a dignified and genuine way. 1. Usui Reiki Level One: CHO KU REI The essential point in level one is awareness of the lifeforce and the importance of re-attuning to it. This concept should be clearly explained to the initiate with an overview of the pranic exercises. The initiate should have time to think about making a commitment to the training program. It should be practised regularly before moving to level two. • Attuning master arranges a meeting to introduce the Reiki program and explain level one. Attuning master has the initiate make a personal CHO KU REI object prior to the meeting. • Attuning master asks the witness to bless it, touches the CHO KU REI object to initiate’s chakras and returns it. • Attuning master touches the initiate’s chakras with the master symbol and ends the ceremony. • Initiate should receive the Reiki Level I manual and have purchased the book Eastern Body Western Mind. “The elevation of psychic wholeness occurs only when energy previously invested in an external deity is withdrawn and returned to its source in the psyche.” (C.G.Jung) “When the old has outgrown its purpose, it is time to transform it into something new. Power is not a thing, but a way. It is a process of becoming real.” (Judith, 1996) 2. Usui Reiki Level Two: HON SHA ZE SHO NEN The main point in level two is knowledge of the height, breadth and depth of the lifeforce. Through the etheric or psychic body, time and distance are changed. The initiate begins to appreciate that these concepts are logical or left brain explanations while the right-side offers a very different view. In the psychic body the mind is able to experience space/time as drops of water in a cosmic sea. In addition, the effect of time and space on a person is stored within the body – especially the backs of the legs - as memory and personal history. This energy can be

reclaimed and redeployed through inner healing.
• • • • Attuning master arranges a meeting to review level one, present certificate and explain level two. He or she has the initiate make a personal HON SHA ZE SHO NEN object prior to the meeting. The attuning master asks the witness to bless it, touches the HON SHA ZE SHO NEN object to the initiate’s chakras and returns it. Attuning master touches the initiate’s chakras with the master symbol. The initiate should have the Reiki Level 2 manual.

3. Usui Reiki Level Three: SEI HEI KI The main element in level three is knowledge of self. The initiate studies the realities of his or her being and is introduced to the reconciliation process and the re-unification of self. • The attuning master arranges a meeting to review level two and explain level three. • The attuning master has the initiate make a personal SEI HEI KI object prior to the meeting. • The attuning master asks the witness to bless it. • The attuning master touches the SEI HEI KI object to the initiate’s chakras and asks the witness to bless and balance them.

The attuning master touches the initiate’s chakras with the master symbol. The attuning master gives back the SEI HEI KI object. It can be used as a symbol for emotional healings. The attuning master presents the level 2 certificate and ends the ceremony. The initiate should have the Reiki Level 3 manual.

4. Usui Reiki Level Four: DAI KO MYO The main theme of the master level is the devotion to a path of self-realization and service to the universe. • The attuning master arranges a meeting to review level three and explain level four. • The attuning master has the initiate make a personal DAI KO MYO object prior to the meeting. • The attuning master asks the witness to bless it. • The attuning master touches the DAI KO MYO object to the initiate’s chakras and asks the witness to bless and balance them. • The attuning master touches the initiate’s chakras with his or her master symbol. • The attuning master gives back the DAI KO MYO object. • The attuning master presents the level 3 certificate and ends the ceremony. • The initiate should have the Reiki Level 4 manual.

Certification
On completion of level four, the initiate is awarded certification for Usui Reiki Master (Dyatido). The Dyatido system utilizes comprehensive self-study, lengthy bodywork training and the use of intuitive technique. This is to create a more knowledgeable practitioner. Certification affords the new master the right to offer attunements and train students. 4. Usui Reiki Master Certification • The attuning master arranges a meeting to review level four and award the master’s certificate.

Lineage
Reiki Masters Dr. Mikao Usui, Founder Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai Japan • Dr. Chujiro Hayashi, Founder Hayashi Reiki Ryoho Kenkyukai Japan • Hawayo Takata, Reiki Grandmaster Hawaii • Phyllis Furomoto • Claudia Hoffman • Mary Shaw • Christine Henderson • Bruce Way • Ariane McMinn • Mona Khalaf • Allison Dahlhaus, Founder Reiki Blessings Academy, International Natural Healers Association, The Universal Light Church U.S.A. • Mark Breach, Founder Dyatido Society, London Canada. When issuing certificates, your name would appear after ‘Canada.’

Teaching and Training
Teaching and training represents another learning curve. The way can be made considerably smoother by talking to experienced teachers. A single well-run program is worth more than many unsuccessful ones. It is worth taking time to consider your options and preferences. Many Reiki masters offer weekend training seminars and attunements. If choosing this route, try and talk to an experienced master with some background in workshops. Manuals are available to active certified Usui Master (Dyatido) members who wish to take on students of their own. These are free of charge. The Jyonetsu Program is available to certify those masters wishing to become Usui Reiki Jyonetsu teachers. Ask for details.
