You can attune to Reiki both by distance or in-person. Both types of attunements are just as effective as each other at attuning you to Reiki energies. The choice of which kind of attunement you choose is personal, and the decision should be lead by your intuition and what feels right for you. Anyone who firmly pushes their beliefs or suggestion onto you, especially without having experience of both types of attunement, should be questioned.
Be open to your truth and use discernment when choosing a teacher for either type of attunement.
There is a case for both types of Reiki attunement, and there is something to be said for the personal touch of a Reiki master when receiving an in-person Reiki attunement. Although personal contact is not necessary for a Reiki attunement, some students feel more confident with this and should do what is right for them. Always follow your heart and intuition. In-person attunements are not for everyone though and are not necessary for Reiki attunement.
This blog post does not intend to put forward the argument for both cases. It aims to give you the benefits of distant Reiki attunements. It is designed for those who are curious about distant Reiki attunements or feel open to receiving them and for those who are unable to receive in-person Reiki attunements. It is worth mentioning that Reiki is only one of the thousands of energy healing modalities. You can pass all attunements by distance with many being explicitly designed for distant attunements.
To help you decide if distant Reiki attunements may be right for you, I have listed some possible benefits:
