Is not it amazing that a reiki master attunes some one for level one.and only level one reiki flows and available for him.when he attunes reiki level two then up to two levels reiki is available.he cannot summon energies of higher levels unless getting attuned.

so the question is,energies like wind are a vast they abide by the level attunements or permission of reiki masters?

The essence of my question is can you direct wind through your will? that it should flow genlty for some specific person and strongly to some one else? same like this energies natural resource.How they can be controlled through intention or symbols?

why do you want to know if i can direct wind? did you attune to the wind? experience and enjoy.

I could be wrong here, but I feel like you're trying to ask a question along these lines:

If one were trying to visualize energy, it might looks like a stream of water between one person and the next. If this is the case it would be expected to be chaotic and difficult to direct, so how are intentions and symbols enough to control them?

Or is your question literally about manipulating wind / air / gasses?

(08 Feb '12, 03:07) Snow

but zee even if one could control the wind do you think he would say it? do you know how many people would fear him saying he will send a tornado on me or he his responsible for all the disaster made by tornado. but if i told you that the tornado are related to all the negative emotion in the world then who his to blame? but who could live with that responsibility? we are all responsible of our free will.

(08 Feb '12, 04:12) white tiger

@White tiger-i meant that if one cannot direct wind by just symbols and intentions so how they can direct energy at their will.which is a ntural force and not bound to some symbol or anyone's intention.

(08 Feb '12, 04:33) Zee

@Snow-I further elaborate."Energy is a natural force.and one who has attuned level one,why can't he is able to use energy of other level?Why he is bound to get attuned for other levels or master not one time attunment is enough for using this whole ocean of energy."

(08 Feb '12, 04:44) Zee

Yes, I figured as much but I second guessed myself and was just clarifying to be sure. =)

(08 Feb '12, 04:57) Snow

well zee i have answered your question but you did not see it. is not everything energy? then what is so hard to understand that energy affect other energy? go take a walk outside and look at the dance of energy.

(08 Feb '12, 05:32) white tiger

zee if i order you to sit down or if i ask you to sit down or if i say we are sitting down now. in which case will you sit down? or do you need a symbol or a ritual?

(10 Feb '12, 06:48) white tiger

@Zee , three levels to Reiki ( simplified ) , a bit like having a basic tool kit , one with extra gizmo's and then the big guns . So a person may only want Reiki for personal use and Level 1 is enough though doesn't mean cant be used for or with other people,animals,things. Level 2 enables distance healing plus more and then Level 3 enables one to "attune " others , teach ( in the broadest sense ) . Not everyone wants the whole enchilada and thats ok :-)

The answer is yes of course so. Here is how this works, take wind blowing at a fixed rate of speed. We will say maybe 15 MPH now can this 15 MPH wind be powerful and way faster without the change in the source? Absolutely it can! Example you have a windmill it turns slowly along at 15 MPH the same speed as the actual wind. But now imagine a turbine that is channeling this 15 MPH wind down a winding path that gets narrower and narrower as the wind spins around though the blades inside. This same principle is used to step up voltage with electricity, nothing more happens than the electricity flows round and round which has a speeding up effect. The wind too becomes more and more powerful as it spins around through the turbine. The result is the wind entering the turbine is 15 MPH the wind exiting the turbine on the opposite side may be 90 MPH. This is the same for water to the point of having a water laser that can cut steal in two. The more the constant is refined and concentrated the more fast and powerful it grows. It can take something almost stagnant and by the time it comes out the other end it is very powerful and flowing very fast. Look at a stream as you see the water is flowing at a constant rate, the water flows down the river steady but something happen when it hits curves and rapids and gets narrow it speeds up faster and faster and becomes from a calm flow to a very fast flowing stream. It is not like God is saying here at this part I'll speed up the river, no it is from the confides of the flow that it speeds up and gets powerful. Take a garden hose set on wide spray, the water flows weakly out not very fast, but narrow the spray down and the more you do the faster and more powerful the spray becomes. It gets concentrated through the smaller and smaller opening until this same water pressure flowing through the hose can power wash the sidewalks clean.

So no we do not change the source energy by being attuned we change the end result as we become the tool for the energy to flow. Level one is the wide spray of the garden hose level two the medium and level three more like the concentrated setting. Note the source energy changes not it flows constant it is the channel tool that determines the end result.

Beethoven could sit at a toy piano and play on it but would the music sound good? He can only play as good as his tools for playing are ready and prepared. Likewise he could sit at an out of tune piano, would his music sound good? He doesn't change he is the constant but change his tools and ohh what a different it makes!

Hello Zee, well the answer to this question for me is very simple ... in practicing reiki, energy is channeled with the intention of doing good, the energy goes there where it is most needed automatically, the practitioner is an open channel for the passage of energy and a reiki "master" is someone with the channel open as wide as possible ... there are other methods leading to enlightenment besides using the reiki system of levels and symbols ... it is true that some practitioners like to direct the energy for a specific purpose, this can be done by simple mental orientation ... the real "reiki master" is the spiritual energy controller way beyond our comprehension

have fun :)

The attunement process is special- so special that I could not find the right words to describe it, and had to go to the Internet for a description.

So we will start with a description of an attunement:

Reiki is not taught in the way other healing techniques are taught. It is transferred to the student by the Reiki Master during an attunement process. This process opens the crown, heart, and palm chakras and creates a special link between the student and the Reiki source.

The Reiki attunement is a powerful spiritual experience. The attunement energies are channeled into the student through the Reiki Master. The process is guided by the Rei or God-consciousness and makes adjustments in the process depending on the needs of each student. The attunement is also attended by Reiki guides and other spiritual beings who help implement the process. Many report having mystical experiences involving personal messages, healings, visions, and past life experiences.

The attunement can also increase psychic sensitivity. Students often report experiences involving: opening of the third eye, increased intuitive awareness, and other psychic abilities after receiving a Reiki attunement.

Once you have received a Reiki attunement, you will have Reiki for the remainder of your life. It does not wear off and you can never lose it. While one attunement is all you need for each level to be attuned to that level, additional attunements bring benefit. Experimentation has found that additional attunements of the same level add to the value of that level. These benefits include refinement of the Reiki energy one is channeling, increased strength of the energy, healing of personal problems, clarity of mind, increased psychic sensitivity, and a raised level of consciousness. At the Reiki support groups sponsored by the Center, additional attunements are usually given by someone who has taken Third degree Reiki, with no extra fee required.

The Reiki attunement can start a cleansing process that affects the physical body as well as the mind and emotions. Toxins that have been stored in the body may be released along with feelings and thought patterns that are no longer useful. Therefore, a process of purification prior to the attunement is recommended to improve the benefit one receives. See below for specific instructions on preparing for an attunement. link

Now, you have asked a big question, and because of my background, I have slowly blended various modalities into my own healing technique, which is still very much based on Reiki. I flew to Philadelphia to learn Pranic Healing, and learned how to "pull" negative energy out of people with my bare hands; it feels and acts like taffy. As a shaman, I have learned about calling on the Spirits, especially the help of my Spirit Guide, Grandfather Coyote, who is Guardian to the Grand Canyon and the Colorado River. I also do Magnussa Reiki, which is how I met Wade...(Long story!)

I pull my energy down through my crown chakra, and also through my palm chakras. I am "backwards"- I send with my left hand and receive with my right (usually), despite being mostly right-handed. My spirit starts the Reiki treatment, but not before I scan the body with a pendulum, looking for negative energy and blockages.Sometimes, other Spirit Guides assist me in healing. I can feel them at my side or behind me, their hands on my shoulders. I seem to have an affinity for this work, and then get to healing.

When I was a Level I Reiki Healer, I sensed that there was much more to the process- but when I researched and tried to do more, I just could not. It requires the attunement- there is no way of getting around that. The attunements are the key to having that "control you are referring to in your question.

The energy is controlled with the aid of the Reiki symbols, the attunement, and the will of the Healer, altogether.

Please read my edited question.

(08 Feb '12, 01:23) Zee

as it has been stated, you are limited to the symbols when you use them. No matter the level. But, you can apply the symbols to a wide range of purpose. I work with elemental energies. I balance ley line's, sacred center's, vortices, etc. I will also work with the deva's of mountain's, lake's etc. i use the elemental symbol, and combine it with the Reiki symbol that fits the purpose of the moment. I apply the same method to people as well. I will focus on the element of the need and then use the elemental/Reiki symbol that is appropriate. As far as influencing the wind, which I believe you are meaning the energy flow which at times can feel like a wind blowing forth from you, or as a stream of energy. You can create an intent, which then causes the energy to go to a specific area. \i am very interactive with my method's, so I end up directing the energy as i see fit to do. The energy that comes from you, comes from your heart center, this is where your true spiritual energy comes from. I don't believe in calling out to something that is already within me. There are times when I will pull in energy from an outside source, like the planet, or from the sun, or even from an element. Now this method will confuse the ego into thinking that it is making this happen. When in reality it is your heart chakra, and your soul source allowing the energy to go where it has been directed. That is the biggest challenge for new students to get past. Your ego can not make any of this happen. If you rely on ego you will be creating energy that has no sense of love or compassion. Your ego will say yes i am making it happen, and that is where the problem starts. Your ego cannot make a energy heal on a soul level, or on a heart level. Energy has to flow where it is directed or intended, not made to go. Only the heart knows how to allow, your ego may make the intent, but it then needs to step aside so that the heart can take over and allow the flow of energy. Incorporating Zen philosophies with Reiki will help you understand how to allow, to flow, to bend where needed and to understand where the ego creates more disturbance.

As Reiki has NO documentary when i started out studying Tai Chi Acupressure,acupunture and fa jing 20 years ago the nearest it comes to is fa jing a non contact auric system using the three dan tiens and the chou openings. I have met alot of Mc Reiki Master 48 hours masters. All people have met who practise this seem mentally and emotionally imbalance and strange. Reiki seems have take the ba hui fa jing techniques and bamm you have reiki were suddenly there is text all over the internet about its being used in NHS hospitals to cure cancer patients etc but never a word of reiki was even writen 20 years ago!!. The ba hui can be used to channel into the Body via the thrusting meridian and channels down the spine calming the diencephalon area of the brain and for reiki distance healing what a joke Im a established long distance healer of 15 years and reiki makes a mockery of true therapy

Reiki has been around for a lot longer than 20 yrs and "I" think it's unfair to try to compare one healing modality to another , bit like apples and oranges :-) The internet has enabled some who may not be of pure motive to exploit it as can happen with many things . I can remember when some charged up to $10,000 for Master level attunement .......

(10 Feb '13, 20:43) Starlight

and whilst I am sure we all understand that people value things (generally speaking ) when paid for, I am also sure my original lineage Master Dr Mikao Usui did not intend such enormous fees to be levied .

Here's a link you might like to read , given from a place of Love and Peace ♥♥♥
