What is a Reiki Master? It simply means that when someone has gone from Level I Reiki all the way through to Level III Reiki, they obtain a certificate that says they are a Reiki Master. These levels are obtained through an attunement process that can only be done by another Reiki Master.
The process can take a year or more, just depending on how much you are drawn to using this healing method. If it becomes your passion like it did with me, then it could be as quick as 6 months to go through all the necessary Reiki Training.
Are Reiki Masters better healers? The word healer is a misnomer actually. The Reiki practitioner is not the healer, it is actually the person that gets well! When someone is sick, and then they get well, they are the healer. The Reiki practitioner or Master is only the conduit for the healing energy to pass through to the recipient.
The attunement process is very simple, it only takes a few minutes. The most time involved is teaching the student all the benefits of Reiki, some finer nuances of how to transmit the healing energy through hand positions, or types of long distance transmission.
