A Reiki 2 Course is the second level of Reiki training. Anyone who has completed a Reiki 1 class can attend.
Most Reiki 2 classes are held over two days. It is not necessary to do your Reiki 2 training with the same Reiki teacher that taught you Reiki 1. However, most people prefer to continue with the same Reiki facilitator for the duration of their Reiki training.
Each Reiki teacher has their own style of teaching. There are also now many brands of Reiki on the market. The original form of traditional Reiki training, Usui Reiki, introduces three Reiki symbols or Reiki keys at the Reiki 2 course.
These look like pictograms and are in essence visual aids that are used in conjunction with the Reiki energy that already is flowing through participants since Reiki 1.
It is understood that each Reiki symbol has a frequency and resonance specific to itself.
The Reiki teacher explains how Reiki symbols can be of help while doing Reiki treatments.
While a Reiki two class is the forum to discuss the Reiki 2 symbols, the basics of each symbol can be outlined here.
Reiki symbols can be used when doing self Reiki or when giving Reiki treatments to other people. If a Reiki symbol comes into the consciousness of the person offering Reiki, it is used. Just being aware of a Reiki symbol is enough to activate the vibration specific to it.
The first symbol is known as the power symbol. It is used to empower both mind and body. Looking at this symbol or recalling it, can give a person an energy boost and confidence boost. On a physical level, it can help with momentum and is used in conditions where the immune system is compromised. In wider situations this symbol can also be used to empower goals and intentions.
The second Reiki 2 symbol given at Reiki 2 classes is used to bring balance to the emotional and mental aspects of a person. This is used primarily during self Reiki and Reiki treatments. Animals also have an emotional aspect and can benefit from this symbol during a Reiki treatment.
The last Reiki 2 symbol is known as the distance Reiki symbol and when focused upon can assist in sending Reiki remotely. The technique used in sending distance Reiki is discussed and shown in detail at Reiki 2.
An experienced Reiki teacher will ensure that everyone is comfortable doing Reiki treatments along with the symbols during the two days. Revision of what was discussed at Reiki 1 is also very desirable. Many questions come up between level 1 of Reiki training and Reiki 2 and it is important that all queries are answered.
Most participants find that attending a Reiki 2 course enhances what they received at their Reiki 1 class. A lot of people comment on the Reiki energy feeling more powerful following Reiki 2.
