Can Reiki attunements be performed distantly?
Yes, and distance attunements and healings are just as effective as those performed in person.
Reiki Rays has performed hundreds of distance attunements for students all
around the world, and we do so everyday successfully.
Usui Reiki provides a symbol in Level 2 that allows for performing Reiki, including attunements, distantly.
While there is great benefit in working with a local Master, receiving a Reiki attunement or healing in the comfort of home may
be preferred by the recipient, as you can relax in your own sacred space, free of distractions, and prepare for your experience in your own
These are done without connection to the internet or

Yes. Reiki Rays Institute of Metaphysical
Theology received full
accreditation from the International Natural Healers Association.
We also obtained accreditation from the American Association of Drugless
Practitioners in July, 2003.
There are numerous options upon
completion. Many use their newly found knowledge to supplement other holistic
fields such as massage, chiropractic, or nursing. Others bring their training to
salons and day spas. Several have opened stores and centers of their own, whereas
others decided to give lectures, conduct workshops, or write. Our main goal has
always been to assist others in achieving understanding and personal growth, so
we encourage you to share what you learn here with those called to learn.
we have a world wide enrollment and instructors located throughout the US, we do
not offer our courses in local workshops or private instruction.

An attunement is the procedure used to pass hidden knowledge of a system or way of like from
teacher to student. This procedure is often done in solitude and silence, and if performed distantly is not done while on the phone or in front of the computer.
Officially, the attunement process is designed to empower the recipient to be able to perform the service or system from that time on.
Nothing is required of the student other than scheduling an appointment and
relaxing using our suggested techniques for the duration of the procedure.
It depends on the course. Our experience has
shown us that the typical student takes 1 to 2 months to complete most
attunement and energy related courses, with holistic courses such as
aromatherapy and reflexology often taking a bit longer to fully master and
absorb the materials. Certification programs, which consist of 5 courses,
often take 6 months, depending on the amount of time the student wishes to
dedicate to his or her studies. However there is no time limit, so you can take
as long as you need and still receive our assistance at any time.
Reiki Rays recognizes many holistic and spiritual healing schools and teachers, and we do our best
to honor your previous experiences. We also understand that many holistic and
spiritual arts are often learned at home, in church, or learned
independently, and we do our best to accept your self-taught skills whenever
possible/We gladly exempt up to 2 courses for any of our certification programs at no cost to you, and will exempt any course
prerequisites if you studied that subject elsewhere. We do not however, issue school certificates for classes not studied from Reiki Rays.
If we are in doubt of your ability, we may ask you to pass a test or submit
a project to demonstrate your skill level. Reiki Rays does not actually
offer credits or credit hours for their courses, as this is typically the
practice of a vocational school or four year college. We do not want to be
mistaken for such a facility.

Unlike traditional four
year colleges that have many requirements, Reiki Rays, as a spiritual educator,
chooses to have as few limits as possible. We expect that our students are legal
age and are willing to expand their horizons. Other than being at least 18 years
of age and being fluent enough in the English language to be able to read and
communicate with your instructor, we do not discriminate against any student for
any reason. Enrollment is your choice, and no one is turned away.
Reiki Rays Institute
issues individual course completion certificates as well as certification in
programs in various holistic and spiritual practices, but we do not issue
diplomas or degrees as we are not a 4 year university. We do have an affiliate
program with the Midwest College of Metaphysics and the Midwest University of
Holistic Health for those looking to further their education. Please contact us
for more details.
