The subject of attunement comes up a lot. Do we need to be attuned? What does an attunement do? Can we do Reiki without one?
I usually say it’s like having a higher frequency receiver. But this is still too vague. So let me look more closely or maybe just a slightly different way.
The attunement helps direct energy to you, the practitioner. It paints a target, so to speak, on your chakras, and like a red flower draws in a hummingbird, the symbol draws in energy. Or, like water spinning in a whirlpool, it moves faster than it does in the main current.
The Power Symbol is a clear example. It consists of a spiral. Think of a funnel. Now think of the Milky Way Galaxy with its spiral arms. Now spin like an electron around a nucleus held on by the force of attraction.
Patterns repeating ad infinitum, and variations of them, and variations of the variations. It’s a sacred geometry. It’s at the core of things, the frame it all hangs on.
So I think now the attunement has great value. It’s fits you for the work of being an energy channel.
