If you can not attend a direct Reiki course for any reason, then this course may be a great alternative for you!

We know your time is valuable. 

Reasons for not having the possibility to attend a direct Reiki course can be for example

- not enough time 

- having no possibility to get to a class, because there are no classes near by

- physical problems

- no  transportation

just to name a few reasons

Hello and welcome to Reiki level 1! 

Our names are Lina and Daniela and we created this course for you.

Reiki level one has traditionally four attunments, but we noticed that lots of online Reiki courses give one attunment for all the Reiki levels! This may be a different style, but we will guarantee you , that you will get four attunments in one session for your Reiki level one. This course provides you with reading material and demonstration videos on how to give Reiki to yourself and others.

I, Lina, will personally do the distance attunements for you. 

Do Distance Attunements actually work?
A Distance Attunement works on the same principle like the Distance Healing method, that you can learn in Reiki Level 2.
The Master/Teacher uses Reiki Symbols to connect with the student on an energetic level, and does the attunements the same way as if the student would be in front of the teacher. 
Based on experience and feedback, there is no difference between receiving attunements in person or from the distance. 
But still, it is important to know that just receiving the attunements is not enough. It is important to learn the knowledge and principles of Reiki, and to practice on yourself first, before you start to work with others.
Also that distance attunements enable you to practice Reiki, you should make the effort and commitment to go through all the information provided in the course to ensure that you are working in accordance with the principles and methods of Reiki. 
If you are a motivated individual then you can become a competent Reiki Practitioner after receiving the distance attunements.

This course teaches you everything that we would teach in person.

Do you teach Reiki Level 2 and Master and Teacher Level?

Yes, these levels are also as online courses available.

Reiki has 4 levels. We decided to create a course for each level separately to make sure that you really take the time to integrate the attunements for each level, starting with this Reiki level 1 course. We know that everything is faster now  these days, and because of this we often forget to take time for ourselves. When we learned Reiki we had to take at least 3 months time between each level. We suggest to use the 21 days of healing time between each level but decide for yourself. If you feel like moving on right away then you can do so. 

Do you get a certificate?

At the end you will get a certificate for Reiki level one. This certificate will be send per e-mail as a pdf-file.

This course is easy to learn. "Reiki is simple so keep it simple” And this is what we are going to do :)

How does it work?

It is very simple, enrol the course now, download the material, watch the movies, and get in contact with me, Lina, to make an appointment for your personal attunements. More about it will be explained in the course.

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is for everyone who wants to learn a form of meditation and healing, that helps to release stress.
  • People who are interested in Reiki.
  • People who want to know how we learned it back in Germany.

Aura and Chakra Lesson
3 Lectures 10:13

Every living organism is surrounded by an electromagnetic energy field, and we call this an Aura. This field vibrates at different frequencies and reflects our Body, Thoughts, Emotions, and Inner Being. 

What is an Aura?

The aura does not only consist of different bodies, it is also connected to the chakras, which have the task of taking in energy from the outside, to supply the human energy system. 

What are Chakras?

There are seven main chakras. They are lined up along the spinal column in the middle of the body, and open to the front and back, as well as the top (crown chakra) and to the bottom (root chakra).

You can also balance your Chakras. Simply hold your hands over the Chakras, notice the difference of each Chakra, and wait until both of the Chakras feel in balance, or both hands feel the same. 

General Chakra Balance

If you feel stressed, too many thoughts, or you just can't sleep then use this method.

Chakra Balance To Calm The Mind

I know, life keeps us busy, and you may not have time to give yourself a Reiki treatment every day. Don’t put yourself under stress, because this is not the purpose of Reiki.
