“As Reiki practitioners or teachers, one of our goals is to raise our own Reiki energy level. By doing this, we become a better Reiki channel and we bring ourselves closer to the ultimate objective of Reiki which is absolute inner peace or “Anshin Ritsumei” in the words of Usui Sensei. The Komyo Reiki Kai First Degree manual suggests we can achieve this by doing the following:

 
1. Keep striving to cultivate your mind and spirituality.
2. Receive Reiju (attunement) as often as possible.
3. Do a daily Gassho meditation before bed and after rising for about 15 – 30 minutes.”
