Reiki training is done in three levels or attunements. With each attunement, the amount of energy goes up. This is similar, in my mind at least, to the wattage on a lightbulb. My hands are still how I make my living but I have performed no miracles using Reiki. (I say this tongue-in-cheek but cannot discount the many documented stories of miracles performed by energy workers.) However, my life has changed dramatically since I began this journey into energy work.
A few months after the first attunement, I discovered and connected with an older brother, five years older than myself. We have more in common, both in personality and appearance, than the siblings I was raised with. Despite having several siblings already, I have never been especially close with any of them until this newest member of my family. I won the sibling lottery. Although this is an inspiring story from an objective standpoint, I didn't attribute this to Reiki.
However, I had the second attunement for Reiki and again my life drastically changed. I won a housing lottery through Habitat for Humanity that will make me a homeowner much sooner than I had ever expected. I can't say these changes are a result of Reiki. After all, correlation does not equal causation. Perhaps it is a case of "physician heal thyself." Before I can perform miracles, I must first have a healthy position for my own life. It could be coincidence. It could be kismet. But I can't wait to get the third attunement just to see how my life changes next.
