What is Reiki Attunement?
Reiki is an ancient form of Japanese healing modalities that has the power to change individuals, as well as the greater collective.

However, despite the many success stories, Reiki is sometimes looked down upon by mainstream science, due to its unscientific ways. With that divide being mentioned, the practitioners who are able to believe and have faith in Reiki are the ones who feel the immense difference it makes.
The Reiki Attunement process is the first step in becoming a Reiki practitioner. There are two different levels of attunement, both of which focus on something different. Reiki Level 1 is more about yourself, and Level 2 has a focus on the symbols. This Attunement process is where many Reiki practitioners feel the difference and magic of Reiki.
Sometimes, it works too well.
In this post, we’ll take a look at some of the after effects of this form of healing, experienced by the recipient of an attunement session.
Process of Reiki Attunement and Chakras:
The entire purpose of the Level 1 and Level 2 Reiki Attunement processes are to open up the chakras within your body to allow energy to easily flow in. In the Attunement process, a Reiki Instructor typically starts with the solar plexus chakra. This chakra is located at the very top of the head and is said to be the focal point where energy flow is controlled.
Chakras are energy points, or portals that are present all over your body, from your forehead to your leg. They work in unison to keep your life force humming as soon as possible, at all times. Most people are not actively aware and in tune with their chakras, closing their energy channels to allowing the inflow of positive energy.
During the Reiki Attunement process, your Reiki instructor will open these chakras to refresh the flow of energy within your body, and introduce an abundance of positive life force energy through the solar plexus and heart chakras.
Potential Side Effects of Reiki Attunement:
The Attunement process is often short, maybe even less than an hour. However, immediately after this session, its effects are felt and can last from 30 minutes to several hours. During this period, you may experience a wide array of after effects, including physical and emotional ones.
Potential Physical Side Effects of Reiki Attunement:
- Runny Nose
- Chest Pain
- Cranial Pressure
- Blurred Vision
- Heaviness in Limbs
Potential Emotional Side Effects of Reiki Attunement:
- Anger Outbursts
- Crying Without Cause
These after effects exist for a reason. The cleansing nature of Reiki Attunement causes your body to start releasing and ridding itself of the negative toxins that have been stored in packets inside your mind, body and soul. These toxins are blocking you from positivity and happiness. If you start experiencing any of the symptoms mentioned above, drink lots of water and lie down. It’s normal and part of the process. Relax!
For the week after your first Attunement, you may want to consider incorporating juicing into your diet. Fresh fruits and vegetables will help rejuvenate your body and keep it strong during the cleansing process. While we’re remove the toxins from our body, we want to replace those chemicals with “healthy fuel.” This will not only make it easier to function on a daily basis, but keep your positive energy levels high throughout the day.
I’ve also recommended my Reiki practitioners to introduce breathing exercises into their morning routine. By being aware of your breath and being one with yourself, you are opening up the chakras and introducing nothing but positivity into your life.
