Usui Reiki practice develops our spirituality, self-care, and self-development. Self-care is a very important part of the practice of Reiki. Self-practice, self-care has always been the foundation of Reiki practice. It is the very beginning step.
One way to confirm our spiritual development is that whatever happens to us in our daily life, we can maintain a calm and peaceful mind, not getting attached to this and that.
Remember, the practitioner and the recipient both receive benefits.
This is no protection needed as long as we resonate with the energy of the universe, there is no energy we need to be protected from, we are protected; the point is we need to be resonant with the energy of the universe.
Wehn we do Reiki healing, that means we are at one with the universe, and these is no duality, there is no good, no bad. So, as long as we resonate with the universe, there is no opposite, such as good or bad. All good, so we don't have to worry about protecting ourselves when we offer Reiki healing. That is our understanding: protection is not needed.
The more we practice, the more we are also being healed; and the energy of the universe is immeasurable and unlimited so we are not in danger of giving too much treatment.
Reiki is energy of the universe and it is unlimited, immeasurable; as you say, it cannot be used or exhausted because it replenishes itself from the source. It is unlimited energy. Reiki is a Japense wordl simply put it means energy of the universe. In the same context, the ancient Chinese people called it qi (pronounced chi).
Many people equate qi and prana, but actually they are quite distinct subtle bioenergies with distinct functions. Qi moves in the meridians and prana moves in the nadis.
We don't know the clear definition of prana or qi. It could be said that Reiki is the rainbow and specific bioenergies such as qi and prana are colors.

Since 2017, the Practitioner Certification Training (PCT) for Reiki has evolved and changed to reflect:
- international standards
- curriculum enhancements
- the ongoing developments in
- trauma research and alternative healing
Reiki Level I
Jennifer offers Reiki Level 1 four times per year, the second Saturday of January, April, July, and October
At this level, you are attuned and connected to the Source of healing energy and are capable of performing healing on yourself and others who are near you (within a few feet). Focuses on opening up the physical body so that it can accept and channel greater quantities of life force energy.
Reiki Level II
Jennifer offers Reiki Level 2 four times per year, the second Saturday of February, May, August, and November
At this level, you are attuned again to establish a better connection with energies that heal mental and emotional issues and that can travel across any distance and time period. You can, therefore, heal yourself and send energy to others regardless of where the clients are. You can send yourself energy for some future time at a different location (for example, a job interview that will be at 3:00 PM in Miami). You can send energy to your mother in Asia while you are in Texas. Again, this is testable and provable. The energy is four times greater than in the first level. Emphasis is on adjusting the etheric body and further opens the third eye or sixth Chakra (pituitary gland) which heightens intuitive abilities. It is to wake up further dimensions of one’s Higher Self.
Reiki Level III
Jennifer offers Reiki Level 3 four times per year, the second Saturday of March, June, September, and December
Reiki III: At this level, you are attuned again to establish a better connection with the “master” level energies. These are very spiritual and assist you in being fully connected (“one with”) the healing energy of the universe. The energy is four times greater than in the second level. Emphasis is on the spiritual level and helps to open the crown chakra, the main gateway of light, which is the highest level of consciousness that can be attained, known as enlightenment, the consciousness of unity, and the consciousness of “I Am”.
