Providence Reiki Training

The Usui System of Natural Healing, what we call Reiki In The USA, has several Degrees or Levels of skill. In different parts of the world and within the Reiki Community, Reiki Teaching Masters offer these Degrees particular to their Reiki Lineage or Reiki Training.  One system is not necessarily better than another; each Reiki Teaching Master is specific to their Reiki Lineage or Reiki Training.

Reiki Training: The Traditional Usui Reiki Lineage

Providence life coaching Reiki counseling--hawayo takata-and-Phyllis-Lei-FurumotoThere are many spiritual lineages or “branches” of The Usui System of Natural Healing, it is not a competition. It is recommended you receive Reiki Training in the lineage that you sense you “signed-up” to be part of. You may receive Reiki Training from someone you don’t know, a friend, family member, or whomever you feel Reiki is calling you to receive training. Again, this is not about better or worse; it is about the correct Reiki Training for you. I invite you to discern who will be your Reiki Teaching Master without regard for relationships or any other personal attachment. Find your Reiki Teaching Master from Inner Discernment – not your brain, fear or ego.


Reiki Lineage is the thread of Reiki Masters that connects you directly to Mikao Usui, the Founder of Reiki. Some Reiki Teaching Masters, like myself, have more than one Reiki Teaching Master they received Reiki Training. Below are the two Reiki Lineages I am connected to and part of.

Traditional Usui Reiki Training: What Are The Reiki Attunements

Providence life coaching Reiki counseling- Reiki Precepts EnglishReiki Attunements are the method Traditional Reiki System that Mikao Usui, the Founder of Reiki, passed from Reiki Teaching Master to Reiki students, activating the connection to Reiki for the Reiki student to get access to Reiki any time they choose. Traditional Usui Reiki Attunements are passed at each Degree of Traditional Usui Reiki Training. They are a sacred ritual of Initiation. Reiki Attunements can be very profound experiences for many students. The Traditional Usui Reiki system included four Attunements each with First Degree Reiki and Second Degree Reiki Training.
