The Difference for Me between Karuna and Usui Reiki

I became a Karuna Reiki Master Teacher last year and had been Level I & II for almost a year before then.  The difference I noticed almost immediately after becoming Karuna Level III & IV was I began rocking, swaying and vibrating when doing Reiki, meaning, when I was working in particular areas of a clients body, I would either start rocking back and forth (pretty intensely at times) swaying back and forth or rocking so intensely that the only word that can describe it is I would actually "vibrate"!  
The vision my guides gave me was of someone panning for gold - you know how you put the sand/dirt in a sieve and shake it back and forth until all the junk is sifted out and what remains is the gold nuggets!  So when I was doing this rocking, swaying etc stuff, the energy was rocking the toxins, stuck negative emotion energy and so forth up to the surface to be released.
In the past several months this hasn't happened much and I wondered what had shifted.  Then I began working on a lot of new clients and it is starting up again.   I think everyone else I worked on had already been cleared enough to not require the more intense and aggressive energy.
So I was wondering if anyone else who is Karuna has had any kind of experience like this.   I also got a ton of what my "woo woo" friends call "downloads" when I was doing so much of this kind of work.  I was given information on many things or had many things clarified for me.  One of them was the fact that the only one doing any healing during a Reiki session is the person receiving the session, we are just the conduits or channels for the energy.  When we connect them to the energy while facilitating a Reiki sessions for them, they pull the energy down through us, we are not in any way "putting" anything into them or manipulating the energy or their energy.
I know many of you will be rolling your eyes and going "duh" but please REALLY read what I wrote carefully and slowly.  I've been teaching Reiki for many years, I tell my students that we are conduits, channels, etc., but the way my guides downloaded this information was much deeper.  It has to do with why it is incorrect for Reiki practitioners to call themselves healers, with fully understanding how Reiki works and how to empower your client.   If you explain to them that they are in charge, they, on on an energetic and spiritual level are making the decision of what takes place during that Reiki session not you, then they will be much more relaxed, much more open and much more receptive and you have just empowered them to take charge of their own healing!
Other healing modalities are telling people that Reiki practitioners push energy into them and manipulate their energy.  So no wonder people come to us a little fearful, a little unsure if this is really safe or desirable and are therefore on their guard when getting up on the table.  Once you empower them by telling them nothing happens here that you don't want to happen here, you are deciding on a soul/energetic level what you are ready to heal and release today, you can palpable feel the guarding melt away and the tension and the session goes much easier, they open up to fully receive.
I'd really love to hear from other practitioners what kind of differences in the energy they have noticed after becoming Karuna.  I am going to be teaching my first Level ! & II class soon so also anything anyone wants to share about that is very much welcomed.


  1. This is very interesting reading, and explained rather wellwkarreaymy next chapter of my journey,, can't wait.. Namaste

    1. did you make it? Opened up so much more for me! BEST WISHES!

  2. Thank you for your comment Christine. Both systems have their unique and special qualities. Best wishes on your journey _/I\_

  3. There were few Reiki experts willing to share their insight unreservedly implying that a great deal of making a trip was included to get the required Reiki attunements and separated from that the course or workshop expenses were generally high. reiki romania

  4. I went to great lengths to find someone local so no expense whatsoever on my end to find a local teacher Steven. Yes for some that is part of the equation. If you want something bad enough you'll find the means to do it - I always recommend the "pickle jar" method or "coffee can" as per Elizabeth Gilbert of "Eat, Pray,Love" fame. Find a large jar or old coffee can and label it "my Karuna Reiki class" (or whatever else you want to manifest the funds for), and begin to put all your loose change and an occasional small denomination bill into it, and set the intention that you are doing this to manifest the funds needed to take that class (and that journey if needs be) and you will see that the Universe will answer your desire quickly. A vision board in addition also helps (The Secret). I used to do it all the time - am at a place where I don't need that vehicle anymore just the intention.

  5. Remember the movie Avatar?

    Where all those blue people were connected by an

    They were able to communicate with plants and

    Well, that is not just a fantasy.

    It turns out that kind of “energy” is real.

    Deepak Chopra wrote about a study, where scientists
    saw monkeys dipping potatoes in saltwater before
    eating it.

    Then they saw the rest of the tribe doing it.

    Pretty logical so far right?

    But get this: Monkeys in different parts of the WORLD
    started dipping potatoes in salt water.

    There was no way they could have communicated
    with each other.

    The only explanation was that they communicated
    through an invisible, “intelligent energy.”

    The Japanese call this energy “Ki”.

    It stands for “Life Force”

    In fact, a man named Mikao Usui developed a
    SYSTEM of healing called Reiki.

    And this system of healing uses this intelligent energy
    to heal people.

    It is one of the most ancient, profound and
    POWERFUL healing arts in the world.

    Reiki masters can HEAL just by touching someone
    with their hands.

    They can also heal people REMOTELY using their

    It’s amazing.

    It USED to take YEARS and THOUSANDS of dollars
    to become a Reiki master.

    But this guy named Owen Coleman discovered how
    to attain these healing powers rapidly.

    Even in as little as 48 hours.

    According to him he already had this power, but
    don’t realize it. And that’s we don’t have to spend too
    much time learning it.

    We just need to recognize it and release it.

    [Check out his presentation on Reiki here.]

    Alright, till next time.

    Yours Truly,
    Chandalie Perera

    P.S. - Owen is offering a special training that
    won't be around forever.

    He's planning on releasing his training methods on
    a large scale.

    But for now, it is invitation only.

    So, if I were you, I'd take advantage of that as well.

    Look forward to hearing from you!
