Need help finding the right online Reiki course? Never fear, I will do my very best to help you. Here are some basic questions to help you narrow down your search:

What Type of Reiki Do You Want to Learn in Your online Reiki course?

Online Reiki CourseEssentially, Reiki is Reiki is Reiki, meaning that all the various forms of Reiki out there all tap  into the same Universal Life Force Reiki energy.  However, various Reiki Masters have developed their own brand and school of Reiki.  Within these different schools you learn different Reiki symbols particular to that type of Reiki.

You might want to learn traditional Usui Reiki, Karuna Reiki by William Rand, Shamanic Reiki or any of the other types of Reiki out there. If you are brand new and looking an online Reiki course to get your first Reiki attunement, Usui Reiki is the original form. Many new Reiki practitioners start with Usui Reiki if taking their first Reiki course.

If you take my online Reiki video courses, for example, you will be attuned to Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki, translated as the Usui Method of Natural Healing. Founded by Dr. Mikao Usui, Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki teaches you how to send universal life force energy to yourself and others for healing purposes.

Look at the Levels of the Reiki Online Course

Most Reiki courses are organized in this fashion: a Reiki Level I training, a Reiki Level II class and a Reiki Master Level training. However, some Reiki Masters have courses beyond the Master level and some break down the Reiki Master Level class into two parts. If you are brand-new to Reiki, you want to look for a Level One online Reiki course.

How Does the Overall Reiki Online Course Curriculum and Vibe Feel To You?

Do you get a good feeling about the Reiki Master Teacher? How about the website and the description of the Reiki course? Does it seem credible and include what you might expect? You always want to trust your instinct.

If the course feels good to you, that’s a good sign. If a website gives you a bad vibe, however, stay away! You want your online Reiki course to be exciting and transformational, which it can be provided you take the time to find the right course for you.

Luckily, location won’t be a factor as the course is online, but the price, the materials, the time and how you feel about the training and the teacher all do matter.

Compare Reiki courses online, but not too much

While you definitely want to do your initial search and find a few online Reiki courses that appeal to you, I wouldn’t recommend  over-searching and becoming overwhelmed. (Which is easy to do on Google, right?)

Narrow your choices down to three, and then choose the right Reiki class for you from there. Even flip a coin if you really can’t decide. Studies show that when we have too many options to choose from, we are less satisfied with the eventual choice we do make.

Besides, you can’t really go wrong with whichever online Reiki course you choose. Worst case scenario, let’s say you accidentally chose a poor course and are unhappy with the results. You definitely learned something from the experience, even if it is to do more research online next time.  But as long as you look at the websites and testimonials, and speak with the teacher beforehand, I would imagine you will be just fine.

To recap, when choosing the right online Reiki course for you, you want to figure out which level and type of Reiki you want to take, look at a few online courses and choose the one that feels right to you. If you’re not sure which ‘feels’ right, that’s okay. Just pick one.

Becoming attuned to the Reiki energy almost inevitably will increase your intuition and psychic abilities as well. Best of luck finding your online Reiki training!

    hi i wanna learn reiki upto advanced grandmaster level. kindly help me with fees and all

    1. The Reiki Master says:

      Hi Jayant,

      I think that’s great that you want to become a Reiki Master. I’ve found that with each level (Reiki I, Reiki II and the Master Level), my abilities get stronger, and I have more inner peace as well. Let’s see, if you took the online Reiki classes individually, they are $150 for Reiki I, $250 for Reiki II and $400 for the Master Level. But if you want buy them all together, instead of $800, the price is $700. You can pay the $150 for Reiki I, and wait until the end of the class to buy the whole package just to make sure it’s a great fit for you.

      Reiki I lasts for three weeks, and you can sign up here: http://www.reikitrainingclasses.org/our-online-reiki-i-classes/ The class is a private, one-on-one class over Skype, which you can take whenever works best for you. My schedule is flexible, and we can during the day or most evenings as well.

      If you have any more questions, please feel free to ask, and I hope to attune you soon!

    Hi!!
    i am interested in an online Reiki course. Could you please send me information about duration, cost, if possible to pay by paypal and how to connect? i read you use Skype, but is anything else required. I live now in Saudi Arabia and we are 10 or 11 hours ahead of you, so schedule could be a challenge.

    :)
    thank you!

    1. The Reiki Master says:

      Hi Karla,

      Thanks so much for your question : ) I will send all the Reiki training information to your email address just to make sure you get it, but here are the general details for the Reiki I online course:

      The class lasts for three weeks, and we meet once a week for one hour over Skype. So, altogether we will meet for three hours over Skype. I like to hold the class over a three-week period, because that way students have a chance to practice Reiki sessions on other people and themselves, and questions inevitably come up! Also, many people go through a 21 day or so detoxification period after a Reiki attunement, since your body is getting used to the extremely high vibration of Reiki being inside you now!

      The total cost for the Reiki I training is $150, which comes out to $50 per class session over Skype. I really wanted to keep the price down so as many people who wanted to could take the class.

      You can pay for the Reiki I training course through the PayPal ‘Buy Now’ button on this page: http://www.reikitrainingclasses.org/our-online-reiki-i-classes/ I currently have a Reiki II student in Saudia Arabia, however, and for some reason PayPal didn’t work for him, so he sent me the money through Western Union, which worked just fine. Just let me know if you need to do that as well!

      Also, we can figure out the scheduling, since my schedule is flexible. I teach Reiki students all over the world (it’s really amazing that the Internet allows me to do that!) What I usually do with students who are about 10 hours ahead is we hold the class in the morning my time and evening theirs. So, for example, we could have your Reiki class at 10am my time and 8pm yours. I’m sure we can figure it out!

      Thanks again, Karla, I hope that I get the chance to have you in a class, and if you have any other questions, please feel free to ask!

      Take care,

      Brooke

    1. The Reiki Master says:

      Hi Samantha,

      Our Reiki I class is a one-on-one private class that meets once a week for three weeks. The course costs $150 and is done online via Skype.

      In the first class, you will receive your Reiki I attunement, which means that you can start practicing Reiki right away. You will also give yourself Reiki and receive long-distance Reiki from your Reiki Master Teacher in every class. By the end of the class, you’ll know how to give a complete Reiki session on yourself and another person and the Power Symbol, Peace Symbol and Centering/Grounding Symbol.

      We would love to attune you to Reiki, and lots of love to you too!!!
