Attunement refers to the process of creating a harmonious energetic connection with the universe, arising from the adjustments of a Reiki Master. Reiki is a Japanese term, meaning ‘universal life energy,’ similar to the concepts of Prana in yoga and Chi in Traditional Chinese Medicine. The term is also used to refer to a healing therapy developed by Mikao Usui in 1922.
Reiki is passed from Master to student via attunements, in which the student is prepared to become a vessel for universal energy. Until a student has received attunements from a Reiki Master, they are unable to truly move Reiki energy for themselves or others.
“The reason you’re trying to get more money, more sex, more knowledge, more love, more power, more fame, more pleasure, etc, and you can’t seem to get enough, no matter how much you get, is because deep down what you really want is to be infinite. You want an infinite expansion. It’s as though deep down your consciousness realizes that infinity is the goal. But you’re trying to accomplish the infinite through the finite, which will never work. You are like a fly trapped in a windowpane.
Your entire life has been one stifled infinite expansion.”
One of the world’s most ancient symbols, the Flower of Life is said to represent the divine, mathematical order in all of life. Consisting of evenly spaced, overlapping circles (with a six fold symmetry like a hexagon), some believe the symbol to be a divine, visual expression of life, consciousness, and creation. Leonardo Da Vinci was particularly interested in the form and mathematical proportions of the Flower of Life and its connection to physical space and human consciousness. The Symbol has been found at The Temple of Osiris in Abydos, Egypt, The Forbidden City, in Beijing, China, and many other sacred sites all over the world.
