Reiki is an ancient form of healing that is practiced by the authors and numerous practitioners around the world. The information and techniques in this book do not constitute medical advice. Healing and medicine are two very different disciplines. You should always remember to seek medical advice from a qualified doctor or practitioner in the case of serious illness. While all suggested treatments are offered in good faith, the author and publisher cannot accept responsibility for any illness arising out of the failure by the reader/individual to seek medical advice from a qualified doctor or medical practitioner.
Reiki Level 1 Manual – An Introduction to Usui Reiki
Reiki is the gift of vitality and self-preservation encoded into the genetic makeup of all God’s creatures. It is the higher self’s connection to the universal energy that breathes life into all living things. We are all born with the omniscient wisdom to heal and preserve life. All living things are connected. Our ancestors used and relied on their own abilities and instincts.
Unfortunately, these basic skills have been forgotten and are rarely used today. Humanity in its relentless ambition for progress has given up its most precious and natural gift.
Through the media and clever advertising campaigns the majority of the world’s population have been conditioned to rely heavily on modern technology at the expense of their own birthright. There is a need for humanity to become re-balanced. Instead of giving up responsibility for one’s life and health, it is vitally important to regain equilibrium between ancient and modern technology. Reiki is the catalyst.
Many people believe when you are ready to embrace the principles of Reiki you will be guided to a teacher. I personally believe that Reiki with its infinite wisdom and unconditional love seeks out the person when they need it most. This is true of my own experience and introduction to Reiki.
An Introduction to 2nd Degree Usui Reiki
THE SECOND DEGREE
The second degree is the next giant step towards understanding and becoming fully attuned to Reiki.
Everyone who wants to study and master the second degree must first have already completed the first degree either in a workshop or a home study course. Reiki 1 is of course included within our Reiki Master Home Study Course.
Students need to have been given the first degree attunements and the knowledge required to skillfully work with Reiki. Unlike the first degree, students normally would have obtained experience, skill and a level of intuitive understanding towards the unlimited power of Reiki.
Most second degree students no longer fear or harbor skepticism towards Reiki. They are normally enthusiastic and excited about the prospect of enhancing their skills and understanding. It is often recommended that the student/practitioner takes time after the first degree workshop to assimilate; and incorporate the teachings of Dr. Usui into their practice and daily life, before attending a second degree workshop. Make sure you are attending the second degree workshop for the right reasons.
Like the first degree, most people feel they are drawn at the appropriate time to the next level of Reiki. Often an event or strong feeling can direct you towards this new path. The main criteria for attending the workshop is that you personally feel ready to go forward with Reiki.
Trying To Understand How the Second Degree Works
It is almost impossible to explain how second degree Reiki actually works in a way that everyone can understand and accept it. To try to scientifically and logically grasp how the universal life force functions is beyond human intelligence. Like so many things in life, although we do not fully understand how they work we still use them to improve our lives.
Many people would find it extremely difficult to explain how electricity, televisions, faxes, computers, telephones and microwaves or the internet works for example. However, not being able to comprehend how they work doesn’t stop people using them. Likewise, although no-one can completely explain how Reiki works it shouldn’t stop you using and trusting in its ability to improveyour life and the lives of the people you work with.
When you study, experience and work with the teachings and techniques of the second degree you will be able to make your own judgement on how you feel it works. Alternatively, you could simply do what we recommend and just believe in its infinitive wisdom and let go of any doubts and fears.
However, for those who wish a brief insight into the second degree we will attempt to justly explain our own understanding of how the second degree works.

Important note: No manual, home study courses or even workshop training program will ever be totally complete; there will always be more to learn. Our intention is simply to help you begin the journey. Where you end up, depends on you!
The Third Degree (Master/Teacher)
In a nutshell; the third degree consists of learning the master symbol, receiving the attunements, and learning and mastering the attunement processes so you can then pass on and teach the gift of reiki to others.
Becoming a Reiki Master is not the end of the journey; it is only the beginning of your own personal and spiritual development. A Reiki Master; is not suddenly a better or wiser or more enlightened person than anyone else, it simply means that as a Reiki Master/Teacher you are now able to pass on the gift of the universal life force to others. Hopefully, a person seeking to become a Reiki Master is already a kind, considerate and spiritually developed individual who is seeking to not only enhance their own life, but also the lives of others.
The third degree is a natural progression for those who want to teach Reiki. The more Reiki teachers we have; the more people will be introduced and drawn to Reiki. This is in our opinion – vital. The world as a community needs to learn to live together and come to realise that we are all connected and should live in peace and harmony. Reiki can help heal some of the rifts and issues that drive us apart. The more people in tune with Reiki the better our world will undoubtedly become.
