What Are The Benefits Of Distant Reiki Attunements?

What Are The Benefits Of Distant Reiki Attunements?

You can attune yourself to Reiki either by distance or in person. This blog post does not intend to put forward the argument for both cases. Instead, it aims to give you the benefits of distant Reiki attunements.

It is designed for those interested in distant Reiki attunements or who feel open to receiving them. In addition, it is also intended for those unable to receive in-person attunements.

It is worth mentioning that Reiki is among thousands of energy healing attunements and modalities. You can pass all attunements by distance, with many explicitly designed for distant attunements.

What Are In-Person Reiki Attunements?

In-person Reiki attunements are attunements you receive in-person, directly from someone physically with you in your presence. The Reiki master usually performs a simple ritual to pass the attunements to you while you sit and receive them in their physical company.

What Are Distant Reiki Attunements?

Distant Reiki attunements are attunements you receive without the Reiki master being in your physical space or location. Instead, you accept the distant Reiki attunement alone, in a place that suits you when you are ready to receive it.

This is often done without needing a specific appointment and allows you to accept your attunement when the time is perfect.

Are Both Types Of Reiki Attunement Effective?

You can attune yourself to Reiki either by distance or in person. Both types of attunements are just as effective as one another at attuning you to the Reiki energy.

It's up to you which type of attunement you want to use. Your intuition and what feels right should guide you.

If someone firmly pushes their beliefs or suggestions onto you, especially without experience with both types of attunement, you should question them.

Be open to your truth and use discernment in choosing a teacher for either kind of attunement.

Both types of Reiki attunement are valid, and there is something to be said for the personal touch of a certified Reiki Master when receiving an in-person attunement.

However, having personal contact to receive a Reiki attunement is unnecessary, but some people feel more comfortable with this and should do whatever feels right for them.

You should always follow your heart and intuition when making your decision. However, in-person attunements aren't for everyone and are not the only valid way to receive a Reiki attunement.

What Are The Benefits Of Distant Reiki Attunements?

If you're wondering whether distant Reiki attunements might be right for you, here are some possible benefits:

  • Distant Reiki attunements can be just as effective and powerful in their own right as in-person attunements.
  • You can receive distant Reiki attunements in your home and surroundings without travelling anywhere.
  • You can accept your distant Reiki attunement whenever you are ready – at any time.
  • Distant Reiki attunements provide total privacy.
  • You can receive the attunement at a convenient time for you.
  • There are no inconvenient class times or schedules.
  • You can learn and practice at your own speed.
  • Distant Reiki attunements can be beneficial for anyone living in remote areas.
  • They remove the cost of travelling and the time required to travel.
  • Often distant Reiki attunements are more affordable yet just as effective.
  • Receiving distant Reiki attunements often gives you more attention and focus when compared to receiving it in a larger group setting.
  • Those who are shy in groups can benefit from distant Reiki attunements by asking questions and feeling more comfortable and secure.
  • You may receive email support before, during and after your purchase and attunement.

Through a lot of personal experience, I know that distance Reiki attunements work just as well as in-person Reiki attunements.

Furthermore, with ongoing training, support and dedication, distant Reiki attunements have produced some extremely competent and confident Reiki practitioners.
