Reiki is a pure form of healing, as its name implies it is the Universal Life Force, this energy is all around us and emanates from us, it is not dependent on individual talent or acquired ability. The ability to learn Reiki is not dependent on one’s intellectual capacity. It does not take years of practice to learn Reiki it is passed from teacher to student. Reiki is a wonderful tool for healing Mind, Body and Spirit. It balances and restores energy through the main Chakra system of the body. Reiki is gentle yet powerful and very relaxing form of healing for the client receiving Reiki healing.

Reiki can be used for many ailments including but not limited to relieving pain, headaches, back problems, asthma, PMT, sinus, anxiety etc. Reiki balances the energies in the body, clears toxins, and promotes creativity. Reiki is a Holistic Healing Modality. It is important to remember you as a Reiki practitioner are not healing your clients. The clients receiving Reiki are in fact healing themselves. You are merely the channel that enables them to draw the Reiki energy through your hands to the place it is needed.

In learning to be a Reiki practitioner you will be helping your clients to become more balanced, find a deeper sense of inner peace and calm, explore their self-awareness and precipitate spiritual growth.

Your Reiki practice will bring the following benefits not just to yourself but to your clients.

  • Reiki will relax you when you are stressed
  • Reiki brings about deep relaxation
  • Reiki centres your thoughts when you are confused
  • Reiki energises you when you feel drained
  • Reiki calms you when you are frightened
  • Reiki focuses your mind and helps you to solve problems
  • Reiki relieves pain
  • Reiki accelerates natural healing of wounds
  • Reiki improves health
  • Reiki gradually clears up chronic problems
  • Reiki helps prevents the development of disease
  • Reiki detoxifies the body
  • Reiki dissolves energy blockages
  • Reiki releases emotional wounds
  • Reiki increases the vibrational frequency of the body
  • Reiki helps change negative conditioning & behaviour

To practice Reiki to its highest good you will need to have an attunement from a Reiki Master. There are 3 levels of Reiki: Reiki 1 and 2 and the Master level. Once attuned Reiki is easy to use and your ability to use Reiki will never leave you. As you start each of the training manuals it is good to have your next attunement. Natura will organise with you to do your attunement in person or by distant attunement.

    Well constructed course. Easy to follow.
    Would have been useful to have a quiz to test the knowledge at the end.

      Hi Sandra,

      Thank you for your kind comments on the Reiki 1st Degree online course. I do hope you will consider having your attunement and getting the most benefit from having done this course, and perhaps looking at continuing onto Reiki 2nd Degree.

      Love & Blessings

      Hi Casy,

      Thank you for your review of the Reiki 1st Degree course. Did you wish to have your attunement to be able to practice Reiki? Should you wish to do so could you also put your location on the institute as we often get asked for practitioners.

      I have just now started to combine my facebook page for Natura Holistic Life Centre and Natura Institute and wondered if you wouldn’t mind if you feel so guided to put this review onto my facebook page for me.

      I wish you love and light,
