This is the full content of the International School of Reiki Level 2 manual, version 3.1.
Why study Reiki Level Two?
In the first level of Reiki you learned to relax and let the energy do its work. In the second degree you deepen this process of surrender by harnessing the power of unity. The three symbols, which were planted within you at level one, will push you now towards the realisation that there is no separation between you and the other, between here and there, or between now, the past, and the future. In this course we combine knowledge and practice of these sacred symbols in order to open new doorways in your healing journey.
The second level also brings with it the recognition that you may want to practice Reiki professionally and make some or all of your living by offering Reiki treatments. It therefore offers you advice on how to set yourself-up as a Reiki professional, covering practical issues such as whether to buy a massage table, and how to set the right price for your treatments.
Are you ready for Reiki Two?
Once you have integrated the changes that take place at Reiki One, and have a degree of confidence and skill in using the techniques, you can consider the next step. Teachers often recommend three months as the minimum amount of time between Reiki One and Reiki Two. Balance that recommendation with other issues:
- Are you practising regular self-healings? If you are not, three months is not enough time.
- One of the most fundamental lessons to learn at the first level is to get out of the way of the healing: to put your own desires to one side, and to allow whatever happens to happen. This is an ongoing journey, but if you are looking to get more power or control over the healing process, you have not finished learning what you need to learn.
- Do you have a heart-felt desire to deepen your connection to reiki?
In all such matters, trust your heart above all.
