The 21-day Cleansing Process after an Attunement or Treatment or for General Health
After an Attunement
Receiving an attunement may for some students be similar to receiving healing, many reactions can occur. Following each attunement the student should go through the ’21-day cleanse’. Remember it was only after 21 days that Dr Usui discovered the true value of the Reiki symbols
The attunement works like aligning a satellite dish for your TV – it opens you up to a whole new world. Some people buy books on Reiki & practice without receiving an attunement either nothing really happens or they become ill because their energy field cannot cope with the shift in frequency. The Reiki Master is like the satellite engineer & retunes your energy system
The 21 day cleanse is due to the higher frequency of energy you have been attuned to & how this energy reacts with your previous vibratory state. Some experience no changes at all whereas others, with unresolved difficult areas in their lives, may find very powerful changes taking place
The biggest reaction is normally within the 1st week of the 21 day cleanse when the subtle system is going though vibratory changes. You may experience release or change in your physical body, emotional being, mental attitudes & spiritual awareness. You may also have unusual feelings of release of bad habits or prejudices. You may experience sadness or anger for no reason – it will pass. This is Reiki’s way of releasing any previous negative patterns before new positive energy can take its place
Accept whatever happens even if the changes are negative & difficult to understand as this is you way of processing unresolved issues. Some of these issues may come from your childhood.
Do not try to understand the process just accept that it is cleansing all previous low frequency emotions from your life for the good of your future well being.
It might be useful to keep a diary of this time & record how you feel & note any relevant dreams
Self-treatments each day (morning & evening) will continue the process & help to raise your vibratory rate.
Above all, whether you feel a change within you or not, accept that the highest source of universal energy is now working through you to help you evolve into a better person
After a Treatment
A healing crisis occurs due to imbalances in energy, which are caused by the environment & our lifestyle
The energy in our bodies flows in lines & these lines can become distorted
Ideally, energy flows through the body like a vibrant, powerful river, washing through impurities & cleansing
Over time & through abuse of our bodies this river meets obstacles, diverts, gets dammed & loses strength. We react & become tired or hyperactive, we get pain or rashes. At its worst, we find physical & spiritual problems, which grind us to a halt
REIKI TREATMENTS & ATTUNEMENTS flush out these impurities & imbalances are swept away allowing the energy to flow freely again
You (or your client) may experience mild, flu like symptoms, tiredness or even diarrhoea
