Reiki Initiation with Filip Ji
The Reiki initiation is a sacred ceremony in which the ability to use Reiki is transferred to the student by a Reiki Master. Usui Shiki Ryoho is taught by Masters who are trained in the traditions of Reiki as passed on through the spiritual lineage and whose personal and professional lives are committed to this healing art and the lifestyle it engenders. This is a gift of a lifetime!
A First Degree class is taught in a three-hour session on four consecutive days. Within the class, a student receives the initiations, listens to the history of Reiki, learns the basic hand positions for self-treatment and the treatment of others, and begins to discover ways to use Reiki in their daily lives.
A Second Degree class is given to students who have felt the calling to go further into the practice. This course takes 2 half days. During these days the Reiki Master will transfer the sacred symbols to the student and teach him how to use these very powerful tools. These symbols will make the flow of Reiki even more powerful, give tools for cleaning energies, work on a deeper emotional level, work beyond time and space, such as healing on distance and healing of past (life) experiences, and much much more.
Finally, also the Master Degree can be transferred to the student during a sacred ritual.
Filip Ji was initiated in the First Degree in April 1995, in the Second Degree in September 1995 and finally as Reiki Master in 1999.
He chose to walk his path of Reiki with a Master initiated within the reputed Reiki Alliance. They honor the lineage of Dr. Mikao Usui and all their Masters can be traced back to Dr. Usui, so also Filip Ji.
The Reiki Master lineage: Dr. Mikao Usui – Dr. Chujiro Hayashi – Rev. Hawayo Takata – Phyllis Lei Furumoto – Phil Morgan – Frank Coppieters – Viviane Gilis – Filip Ji
Although Filip Ji was initiated by a Reiki Master of the Reiki Alliance, he prefers to work autonomously now. The rules about waiting periods and costs are very strict and not always preferable. Within the Reiki Alliance, the usual waiting period between the First and the Second Degree is 3 months and between the Second and Master Degree one year. The costs for the First Degree initiation is 150$ (or €), 500$ (or €) for the Second Degree and for the Master Degree 10.000$ (or €). These are the periods and costs also Filip Ji honored.
However, the economic situation is not equal in all parts of the world. For instance, in Portugal, the average income is not comparable to the average income in Germany, Belgium or Norway.
The initiations with Filip Ji cost:
First Degree: 100€ (3 hours during 4 consecutive days)
Second Degree: 200€ (2 half days)
Master Degree: 1.000€
As what the waiting periods are concerned, the Awakening process is going so fast now that it has no sense to stick to strict periods of time. It all has to do with the degree of engagement and readiness of the student and it is up to the experienced Reiki Master to decide if it’s the right time for the next initiation or not.
