Is It OK to Attune Young Children?
It is fairly common for the children of Reiki teachers and similar backgrounds to receive attunements at a young age. Sometimes a child with a health issue or who is particularly sensitive will get attuned to help with their own treatment.
There is not really a minimum age for the attunements provided the child wants and accepts them actively.
The children I have known who received attunement young all use the Reiki responsibly and often do a lot of work with animals. In The San Francisco area it was fairly common for classmates to seek a quick treatment from a child who practiced Reiki or another healing modality. There were a lot of kids who meditated or practiced crystal healing etc. . so Reiki did not cause the kind of controversy it might elsewhere .
My experience has been that a child who does not truly choose to be attuned cannot be attuned. Children who want attunements often already have considerable ability they were born with. Many young children do choose to be attuned and usually do not have any major detoxification .
Adolescents sometimes are already going through too much to deal with. They may sometimes do better with in person one on one attunements where there can be ongoing contact with the Reiki teacher. Naturally children should not be attuned to Reiki without Parental consent and participation .
