Are audio attunements effective?

Q: Are audio attunements effective?

A: Somewhat. An audio attunement is an attunement that has been embedded into a sound file – usually meditation music or a guided meditation. It is embedded by the intention of the Reiki Master that anyone who listens to the audio file receives the attunement energy.

This will often create an energetic change that can enable the listener to then access the Reiki energy and be attuned.

There is a difference though, and it matters.

A personally given attunement, whether by distance or in person, is much stronger. It is a direct connection, intended for you personally by name.

Also, the most effective way to learn Reiki is with a teacher. A good teacher will support your learning, answer your questions, and be invested in your personal success and confidence in your Reiki practice. A good teacher will be effective in person or via distance.

I teach Reiki both ways, (remotely and in person), and my students are all given the help and support they need to become powerful and successful Reiki practitioners and master teachers. I am here for each student far beyond their training time, any time they have questions or want to share experiences, for life. That’s much better than simply listening to an audio file and then trying to teach yourself.

Here’s an analogy. Trying to learn Reiki yourself is like you are a radio, trying to find the Reiki Channel, and not knowing what it sounds like, or where it’s located. An audio attunement will give you a fuzzy and weak connection to the Reiki Channel, and you will have to work without guidance to try to coax the signal to get stronger. A direct attunement from a Reiki Master Teacher to you specifically will get you the strongest, clearest connection, and you’ll be playing that Reiki Channel loud and clear immediately, without a doubt. Yes, it makes that much of a difference.

Some people will circulate or offer free audio attunements. Just know that there is a significant difference in the strength of the energy and the quality of your instruction when you work with a teacher.

I have tested this theory many times, and it’s proven to be true. Just yesterday, someone came to me who had received Kundalini Reiki attunements via audio file. He thought his attunements were fine, that he was comfortable channeling the energy. I suggested that he allow me to re-attune him to the master level personally so he could feel the difference for himself. He agreed. He was completely amazed by the difference in the strength of the energy during and after his attunement from me. His connection to the Reiki energy was so much more powerful after I attuned him, that he was exclaiming over and over again that he never knew it could be this strong. I think that people who receive the audio attunements just aren’t aware that there is a difference. I hope that writing this blog will be enlightening for those who need this information.
