How can a Master ascertain that the person coming for a Level II degree course has been attuned in the First degree?
This is something I have to deal with each time a person comes to me for the Karuna Reiki Studies. When I became registered with the Center for Reiki Training, I had to sign a form agreeing to abide by their guidelines. One of which is that I only offer the class to those who have had Reiki Master training. Even though I request a copy of the Master/Teacher certificate, in all honesty, unless they can prove their lineage, I have no way of knowing for sure that the person did indeed complete the course. At best, all I can do is provide them with my own lecture notes for the Usui Master/Teacher level and attune him/her to the Usui Reiki symbols along with the Karuna symbols… to be sure. It’s really a matter of trust.
