    A Guide to Level 1 Attunement with Liz Tailby

    Are you seeking balance, healing, and a deeper connection with yourself and others? Reiki might be the transformative practice you've been searching for. Reiki, a Japanese healing technique, is renowned for its ability to promote relaxation, reduce stress, and facilitate physical and emotional healing. If you're drawn to explore the profound world of Reiki, then Level 1 attunement is your gateway.

    What is Reiki?

    Reiki, pronounced as "ray-key," is a holistic healing modality that originated in Japan in the early 20th century. It is based on the concept of universal life energy, known as "ki" or "chi," which flows through all living beings. Reiki practitioners channel this energy to promote balance and healing on physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels.

    The Significance of Level 1 Attunement

     Level 1 attunement is the first step on your Reiki journey. During this initiation process, you will receive energetic attunements from a Reiki Master, which will open you to the flow of Reiki energy. This attunement serves to cleanse and align your energy channels, allowing you to become a channel for Reiki energy.

     What to Expect During Level 1 Training

     1. **Introduction to Reiki**: You will learn about the history, principles, and benefits of Reiki. Understanding the foundation of Reiki is essential for developing a deep appreciation for the practice.

     2. **Receiving Attunements**: Your Reiki Master will guide you through attunement ceremonies, during which you will be connected to the Reiki energy. This process is gentle and transformative, often accompanied by feelings of warmth, peace, or subtle energy sensations.

     3. **Hand Positions and Self-Healing Techniques**: You will learn basic hand positions for treating yourself and others. These techniques will enable you to channel Reiki energy to areas in need of healing, promoting relaxation and well-being.

     4. **Ethics and Guidelines**: As a Reiki practitioner, you will uphold ethical standards and guidelines to ensure the integrity and effectiveness of your practice. Respect for client confidentiality, consent, and boundaries are paramount.

     5. **Practice and Integration**: Practice is key to mastering Reiki. You will have opportunities to practice self-healing and exchange Reiki sessions with classmates, deepening your understanding and experience of the energy.

     Embracing Your Reiki Practice

     After completing Level 1 training, you will possess the knowledge and skills to begin your Reiki practice. Remember that Reiki is a journey of self-discovery and growth, and each individual's experience is unique. Cultivate a daily practice of self-healing, meditation, and mindfulness to deepen your connection with Reiki energy.


    Embarking on the journey of Reiki Level 1 is a profound and empowering experience. As you open yourself to the flow of Reiki energy, you embark on a path of healing, self-discovery, and transformation. Embrace this journey with an open heart and mind, and may the light of Reiki illuminate your path towards greater harmony and well-being.
