You can attune to Reiki both by distance or in-person. Both are just as effective as each other at attuning you to Reiki energies (Do Distant Attunements Work?). The choice as to which type of attunement (What Are Attunements?) chosen is a personal one and the decision as to which is best for you should be lead by your intuition and what feels right for you. Anyone who strongly 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. Saying this, in-person attunements are not for everyone and are not necessary to be attuned to Reiki.
This blog post is not meant to put forward the argument for both cases. It is intended to give you the benefits of distant Reiki attunements. It is intended 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. All can be passed via distance with many being explicitly designed for distant attunements.
To help you decide if distant Reiki attunements are right for you, we have listed some of the possible benefits:
I firmly believe, and through a lot of experience, distant Reiki attunements are just as effective as in-person Reiki attunements with the above benefits. Combined with on-going professional training, support and dedication, distant Reiki attunements have produced some extremely effective, and confident Reiki practitioners and Masters.
If you are a Reiki practitioner who has not experienced a distant Reiki attunement and is uncertain of its effectiveness or what to advise your students, try it for yourself. It is only through experience that we can fully understand or advise and teach others.
If you would like to try a distant attunement for yourself, I would recommend starting with Kundalini Reiki and Usui Shiki Reiki Ryoho. Also, you may be interested in the attunements in the New To Energy Healing category and most flush attunements.
