Preparing for Your Reiki Attunement
A purification process is recommended to improve your results during the attunement. This will allow the attunement energies to work more efficiently and create more significant benefits for you. Please observe the following steps as closely as possible.
- Refrain from eating meat, fowl or fish for the three days before the attunement. These foods often contain drugs in the form of penicillin and female hormones, and toxins in the form of pesticides and heavy metals that make your system sluggish and throw it out of balance.
- Consider a water or juice fast for one to three days, especially if you are already are a vegetarian and have experience with fasting.
- Minimize your use of coffee and caffeine drinks or stop altogether. They create imbalances in the nervous system and endocrine systems—no caffeine drinks on the day of the attunement.
- Use no alcohol for at least three days before the attunement.
- Minimize or stop using sweets. Eat no chocolate.
- If you smoke, cut back and smoke as little as possible on the day of the attunement.
- Meditate half an hour a day for at least a week using a style you are familiar with or spend this time in silence.
- Reduce or eliminate time watching TV, listening to the radio and reading newspapers.
- Go for quiet walks, spend time with nature and get moderate exercise.
- Give more attention to subtle impressions and sensations within and around you; contemplate their meaning.
- Release all anger, fear, jealousy, hate, worry etc., up to the Light. Create a sacred space within and around you.
** The above recommendations are not mandatory – nothing in the Universe is. They are, however, a good indicator to the Universe of your degree of commitment to this process as they prepare you to receive energies by becoming as clear a channel as possible. Do as much or as little as you choose, keeping this in mind. This is not meant to be a time of suffering but a time of reverence.
