Here's what some of our students say...

As soon as I verbally accepted the Practical Reiki Level 1 attunement, both my hands were tingling, pulsing, and warming up more than usual.

I felt relaxed and a quiet happiness gently washed over me, like the present moment was all there is, and that this moment was beautiful.

I felt gratitude for this very precious gift and my heart was smiling.

I felt connected to all energy and all life, and saw myself doing energy work along with many others in the world and felt a sense of pride, privilege, and responsibility.

Then warm and cool sensations both began to travel from my hands up through both of my arms into my chest. As this stage, both my hands were on my heart. The pain I was feeling in my right thumb this morning had gone, at least for now.

During the attunement, I was lying down and had quiet space to be present to the experience and the sensations in my body.

At different times I felt different sensations, over the course of about twenty minutes of paying attention. I felt an overall sensation of vibration – like a buzzing – all around my body for a part of the time.

At other times, I felt that more strongly in various parts of the body, my hands and feet in particular. I also felt for a part of the time waves of energy in my torso – mainly in my chest area, and at times if felt like my heart was pounding more intensely than usual.

I also heard a slight buzzing sound for much of the time – not sure if that was just sounds from the heating or another system in my home, or a different kind of sound.

Overall, it was some strange blend of being relaxed and intense/exciting at the same time.

A very calm and peaceful experience. My chest grew very warm and my palms were hot and tingling. I saw flashes of yellow, pink smoldering, and a little bit of green with my eyes close. I felt very calm, my mind was quiet and I drifted in and out of sleep (moms tend to fall asleep when they get into a quiet space :D) I woke feeling very rested and centered. Thank you <3
