Receiving the Mass Attunement from the GrassRootsReiki Group.
At GRR we send out a Mass Attunement each Monday evening at 9.00pm your own local time. This attunement
is intended to reach anyone who intends to receive it, and is completely effective too, just like any other attunement method!
All you need to do is to sit quietly and/or meditate at just before 9.00pm any Monday evening with the intention
of being fully attuned into Reiki. The attunement takes approximately 10/15 minutes during which period you may
feel slight sensations like energy moving in or around you, you may 'see' faint lights, or 'hear' faint sounds, or you may
feel nothing at all. Reactions to attunements vary from person to person, and are no indicator of the 'strength' of
the attunement. There is no such thing as a 'strong' attunement!
Once you have received this attunement you are now fully empowered to all aspects of the energy and can now start
AFTER YOUR ATTUNEMENT
Once you have been attuned it is now up to you to bring Reiki into your daily life.
The first step is to become familiar with and practice the Reiki Principles. These are the central core
of Reiki and without these Reiki is no more than another 'alternative therapy' On the page The Reiki Principles we give
a fuller explanation of the Principles and why they are so important to Self Empowerment with Reiki.
Next you must incorporate meditation into your life on a daily basis. The Gassho meditation (see Meditation
Page) is suggested for beginners to meditating, because of the simplicity of learning and ease in which you can carry out this
meditation. Once you are comfortable with the Gassho meditation you can try the Hatsurei-Ho meditation which is said
to have been the method that was used by Dr. Usui and his own students. Hatsurei-Ho is also a very simple and very effective
Reiki meditation, and is key to deepening your connection and ability to channel the energy.
Self healing is also a very good way to bring Reiki into your life and make manifest its benefits on the physical
body. We have provided one set of suggested hand positions on the "Self Healing with Reiki" page. Remember
that these are only SUGGESTIONS. There is no right or wrong way to lay hands on yourself. It might be useful at
first, to carry out the hand positions as we have shown you, until you are confident enough use Reiki intuitively.
As has already been said, Reiki is a method of Self Mastery, and at GRR we promote the use of Reiki for self
over all other ideas about Reiki. This does mean however, that we do not want people to refuse to give Reiki to anyone
else! Far from it! Use Reiki on your family members, your friends, even your pets, and in any way that you would
like to use it. Please though, do encourage your friends and relations to learn Reiki for themselves - that way
they will incur the full benefit of this simple and profound spiritual energy. If necessary you can place people on
your distant healing list (more about this on the Distant Healing with Reiki page) as backup if they need it while they are
ill, and certainly does not preclude you all getting together and sharing hands-on Reiki whenever you can.
