Hans van Leeuwen practiced Reiki actively from 2000 to 2005. Here are some experiences from people who did Reiki sessions or courses with Hans during that period.


Elizabeth, Barcelona, Spain

During the first session I had with Hans before attunement I felt very relaxed and had sensations of weight especially in my hands. That week I felt really energized Ė as if someone had supercharged my batteries! During the attunement I had the same feelings of heaviness and some visions of colours, but it was a subtle experience rather than a dazzling one.

My first surprise came the next morning when I was lying in bed with my husband. My hand was resting on his chest and suddenly I could feel swirling sensations in my palm! I hadnít even been thinking about Reiki!

They say that with Reiki we develop greater awareness and intuition and I feel this to be true. But this is just the beginning and Iím hoping to learn more and more as I practise more and acquire more knowledge. Iím looking forward to sharing Reiki with other people Ė itís such a great way to spread the well-being that so many people seem to be searching for - and also doing level 2 maybe later this year!

So if youíre considering getting into Reiki I can only say Ė follow your intuition, you canít go wrong!


Jose, Spain

I am a 28 year old spanish guy and have always been interested in Spiritual growth and development since I was a teenager but afraid of the unknown and reluctant to continue learning because my fears. In the past year everything suddenly changed and started my Spiritual path with renewed energies. I was specially attracted to Out of Body Experiences (OBEs) and very recently and by pure chance attracted to hands on healing REIKI.

After gathering some information about REIKI on the internet I found Hansís web site and decided to contact him in order to attain REIKI level I training and attunement. Communication with Hans was always very polite and trustful and in fact he transmits a lot of security and care.

Although Hans does distant healings and attunements I decided to visit him as we both live in the same city, Barcelona. In order to prepare my body and to become familiar with REIKI Hans suggested to have a first REIKI session for me to experience. The sensation was incredible and I initially started to feel a warm sensation in my head while Hans started the healing in my Crown Chakra area that moved and followed wherever he placed his hands. The feelings where of peace and understanding mixed with well being state sensations throughout the session. I also perceived images with my third eye like spheres of green and purple and white. There was also a feeling of movement or tunnel like traveling through space. Finally I perceived spiral symbols among others.

After the session I was left with a sensation of joy and self realization for the rest of the day, I had vivid dreams and visualization and relaxation was easier than ever after the session. There was also an increase in telepathy activity.

I will be attuned promptly to REIKI I by Hans and I am looking forward to be able to heal and help people in an unconditional loving way.

I have completed Reiki II with Hans. One thing I have noticed is that the opportunity to use these skills have presented themselves into my life. My grandson was recently born with a problem digesting his food. The doctors were advising operations. While I held him, I prayed over him and used the Reiki symbols. He began to keep milk down with very little coming up. As the week went on, he began gaining weight. I have for several months performed Reiki at a distance....... thinking of him. He is able to keep food down, digest it and not need any operations.

I have found that friends who have pain seem to now tell me and ask if Reiki will help. My answer is always the same. Reiki is sharing of life energy in love............. I don't think it can hurt.

It is my hope to continue to develop in Reiki. Hans has been an excellent guide. I would recommend to anyone wishing to know more of this natural use of energy and love, learn with Hans.

"I have had the pleasure of having Hans do two healing sessions with me and I will be completing the Level I Reiki Practitioner course soon. I have found Hans to be very kind and prompt with answering any questions I have had. The distance healings that I have received have been wonderful! I did enter into the first healing with some doubts as he is in Spain and I am in the USA. It was a most enjoyable experience. The feeling I had was a very pleasing, cool-tingling sensation. I felt so relaxed and serene afterwards and slept like a baby that night. I had many emotions coming to the surface over the next couple of days and I found I had plenty of strength to deal with and "clean up" and get over the old "baggage" that I had been hanging on to for years. The second healing, I went into it knowing that Hans and the distance Reiki session is very effective. This time I became extremely relaxed and my breathing was very deep. I experienced seeing various colors of deep blue, purples, and white with my eyes closed. I felt a warm almost pulsating or vibrating feeling that was most pleasent. Again, I was very relaxed and slept very soundly. I have since found that my hands feel very warm and that I can really feel a strong positive energy coming from the palms. I have been trying it out on my four little dogs and they love it! They actually come "ask" for it! I highly recommend Hans and the Tera Mai Reiki! Thank you so much Hans! With warmest regards, JA."


Barbara, USA

I met Hans through his Reiki site on the internet. I signed up for distance Reiki treatments. After treatment 1, I signed up for the course Reiki 1. During the treatments and initiation, I have had wonderful sensations including color as well as changes within my body. Hans has introduced me to Reiki as distance healing. I am looking forward to Reiki 2. Barbara.


Neda, WI, USA

"I became aware of Reiki through my massage therapist and began searching for information on the internet where I found Hans. I had some medical issues which I desired to address and we arranged for a date and time for my first distance Reiki session. I had a few weeks to prepare for this session so I became familiar with the Tera Mai Reiki system by reading and absorbing every bit of information I could from his website. This energy channeling experience was the most relaxing and refreshing therapy session I have ever endured. The only physical sensation I felt was a certain coolness, a comfortable unruffled, easy feeling, sort of disjointed, positive and natural. I fell asleep during the last l5 min. of the session and napped for about 2 hours afterwards. The rest of the evening I felt like a wet noodle, totally spent and sluggish. I slept like a baby that night. My internal discomforts appeared to be less of a problem almost immediately following the session and within a week they were almost gone. During our session I could feel these irritating problems being lifted from my physical being and replaced with a sensation of healing, loving energy. It was awesome to say the least! Not only did this Reiki session help relieve my pain somewhat, but I've also learned how to deal with my stress and anxieties by practicing the breathing techniques which Hans was kind enough to share with me. I've become a more tolerant, understanding person and am learning to appreciate the simpler things in life which before had little or no meaning. I hope to arrange another Reiki session with Hans in the near future. Words cannot explain how his goodness and unselfishness have affected my life and touched my soul."


Catrina - Penn, USA

"I meet Hans in a chat room I go to and had known him for sometime. I was feeling quite under the weather one day and he offered to do a Reiki session (long distance). Knowing Hans the way I do I had no doubt or fear of this and so we began. I became very relaxed and could feel my entire body reacting to his work, my hands became warm and my being filled with light, love and calmness. When we were finished I put a relaxing CD on and felt wonderful for the rest of the day. Hans is a very caring , loving gentle person and I am very blessed to have him as my friend. Thank you Hans, Gods Blessings to you always my friend."


Elly - Wisconsin, USA

"I just had my first Reiki session and am very happy it was with Hans. We arranged a distance session by email. I was very relaxed, in fact fell asleep. I awoke suddenly to a feeling of very intense energy above my body, and although I kept my eyes closed and I know the light coming in the window didn't change - it was brighter for a minute. Since the session I have had less depression and anxiety, and I look forward to more Reiki. I highly recommend Hans - even though we never spoke, just receiving his email messages made me feel better. He is obviously a kind and gentle person. Thank you Hans!!"

Please allow me to share my experience of meeting Hans and the Tera Mai Reiki initiation. Please excuse my English as English is my second language.

I am in residing in Malaysia and attached in a private company as a Financial Manager. I am a Usui Shiki Rhoyo and Seichim Reiki Master prior to Hans' attunement.

Deep inside me I always wanted to become Tera Mai Reiki Master as I was initiated in 1st & 2nd degree - Tera Mai Reiki by my local Master in 1999. Unfortunately, I could not continue further because my local Master is no more available.

I put my thoughts and searched for a suitable Master. It took me four years with the help of the divine intuition, I found Hans from nowhere in the internet. I must say, I am absolutely delighted to find him because of his:

* Deep and broad knowledge in Reiki
* Humbleness and willingness to help me
* Promptness in reply me
* Fees are very reasonable compare to others
* Powerful, spiritual attunements

I am very grateful to Hans for initiating me on all levels of Tera Mai Reiki. My experiences during the attunement on all the levels are very fascinating. Especially, the Tera Mai Reiki Master attunement is worth mentioning here.

It was February 7th at 0400 (my time) Hans started the attunement. After few minutes 0400 I felt like a current surging through my root chakra to the crown chakra. At the same time automatically my body (spinal cord, neck and head) straightened up by itself. I could not explain why and what is happening to me. I felt like someone mighty is stretching me to the maximum. Then my entire body tremors intensively. All these last for a few seconds only, I wish it was longer because the experience was beyond wonderful.

After the attunement I found my healing is improving day-by-day. Now, I am doing healing with confident and able to handle any situation more professionally.

May the Light of Love Guide, Heal and Protect you.

How I came to Reiki

Back in November 2003 I signed up for a Traditional Reiki course which was to be held in the village where I live near Barcelona (Spain). I had only a vague idea of what Reiki was, but strongly felt that it was something I wanted to learn more about. However, I had decided not to read up about the subject as I wanted to do the course without any preconceived ideas. The day before the course I was told that it had been cancelled as there werenít enough people (only 3 of us instead of the 6 required by the teacher).

I felt very frustrated and decided to find out more about Reiki and whether someone else in Barcelona could teach me. This is how I came to Hansí website and wrote to him to find out more. I wasnít sure whether to go ahead with Tera Mai Reiki with Hans on a one-to-one basis or wait and do the Usui course, which may of course have been cancelled yet again! Hans told me to follow my intuition which, after a few more conversations with friends, I did and received my Reiki I attunement in December.

My experiences so far

During the first session I had with Hans before attunement I felt very relaxed and had sensations of weight especially in my hands. That week I felt really energized Ė as if someone had supercharged my batteries! During the attunement I had the same feelings of heaviness and some visions of colours, but it was a subtle experience rather than a dazzling one.

My first surprise came the next morning when I was lying in bed with my husband. My hand was resting on his chest and suddenly I could feel swirling sensations in my palm! I hadnít even been thinking about Reiki!

That day I started to practise on my husband and small daughter and they both said it felt great. My husband frequently asks me for treatment and itís great to get the feedback from him after the sessions. Iíve also been practising with friends and so far everyone has enjoyed the experience and some are coming back for more on a regular basis!

Intuition

In January I had the opportunity to meet the Reiki Master I would have done the level 1 with had it not been cancelled. I am sure that she is an excellent teacher and have nothing but respect for her, but I knew immediately that I had made the right decision in taking the course with Hans. So Iím very grateful to Hans for telling me to follow my intuition and now Iím much more aware of how important that is. So simple, but so effective!

They say that with Reiki we develop greater awareness and intuition and I feel this to be true. But this is just the beginning and Iím hoping to learn more and more as I practise more and acquire more knowledge. Iím looking forward to sharing Reiki with other people Ė itís such a great way to spread the well-being that so many people seem to be searching for - and also doing level 2 maybe later this year!

So if youíre considering getting into Reiki I can only say Ė follow your intuition, you canít go wrong!

I have done the first and second level course of Tera Mai Reiki and will soon do the third-master level. The first level initiation was very interesting. I felt all my body tremble and experienced a sensation of growing, afterwards I lied down and continued to experience a sensation of floating. This all made me feel very well and happy. The second level initiation was a most charming experience. After the beginning I stayed with hands in prayer position, and I felt my hands tingling tremendously. This slowly vanished while I felt a bit 'dizzy' in the head in a state between sleeping and awake in which I was consciously aware. I had a sensation of going out of my body, I think I fell asleep, after almost an hour I woke up and I stayed the rest of day with sleepiness and feelings of great peace.

I will do the Tera Mai Reiki Master course soon because although I am already a Master in the Traditional System Usui, I am enchanted with the Tera Mai Reiki system and am wishing to spread this wonderful system in my country.

Thank you very much and PROFOUND PEACE.

My experience with Reiki level 1 with Hans:

When the initiation started, I felt an energy in my 7th and 6th chakra, afterwards I could feel it going up my spine and after a couple of minutes it was above me imprinted in my aura from my head til my feet. My hands and feet were tingling, I experienced a nauseous feeling, after that I felt my second chakra, it was burning when I exhaled. I could see the plane of a house and I think that when the initiation was finishing I could see a blue color and red lines a couple of times.

Now, when I practice the Microcosmic Orbit I feel that my chakras can open much more, and at the end when I let the energy spin around my navel I can really feel it; before I only visualized it, but now I can feel it as. Today, certain traumas of the past have come up and I have allowed these to be healed. When I practice Reiki I feel a subtle energy in my chakras that activates them, especially in my seventh chakra, it expands much more than before.

I wish you a nice day,

When I discovered about Reiki, and I believe I discovered it by intuition or guided to it, I decided to obtain as much information about it as possible. This involved reading information in numerous web pages as well as buying several books. When I decided that Reiki was something worth learning and practicing I decided to start my search for a Reiki Master in Barcelona. I used the internet and found a few Reiki Masters. vI found Hans Web Site and it was very informative and reassuring. I decided to call him and obtain more information about his training. From the first moment his attitude was very friendly and open and I perceived a sense of security and trust. My only doubts were about Tera Mai Reiki and what made it different from traditional Reiki. After finding more information about the different Reiki systems I realized that Tera Mai Reiki had more to offer and had evolved from the traditional Reiki, I had nothing to loose instead I obtained more.

The first attunement was like a life changing experience, the sensations I felt during the initiation and specially the minutes that followed where of peace, self realization, incredible energy rushes, visions, altered states of consciousness and trance like situations. It had definitely worked and the attunement was passed with greater sensations, emotions and feelings than I originally expected. For the remaining of the afternoon I felt joy and peace and the inner feeling that something good for my personal spiritual growth had been done. That night and consecutive nights I had vivid dreams that seemed to bring up subjects that emotionally affected me, I felt that those emotional and mental issues had been unburied for me to dealt with in order to heal myself preparing me to be a Reiki channel.

At present I have already been attuned and obtained Tera Mai Reiki level II with Hans, which has definitively increased my energy flow and channeling capabilities. I have full trust in Hans as a Master and Teacher and I am looking forward to obtain Reiki III in the near future.

Before I did Reiki, I sometimes had a quite hard time as I dug my nose deep into atomic physics, epistemology, cybenetics, cosmos, reality and so on and often felt just like "flying away". The first Reiki distance session was very relaxing and a good experience. When I got then the Reiki manual for Reiki I and learned the grounding exercise I didn't "fly away" any more but fluw away with my thoughts and was still rooted into earth. I do corporal mime and martial arts and Reiki helps so much to recharge, let go of tension and healing small pain you sometimes get from training. But there is much more to do with Reiki. You can be so creative, follow your intention and discover amazing things. And Hans is a really good master. I mean, I am very pleased that I learned Reiki from him as he gave space for my individual development and he was/is always there when I have any concerns or questions. I felt his warm heart beating. Thank you Hans.

I have now completed the Tera Mai Mastership training with Hans and have had wonderful results! I am far more intuitive and have more energy coming through me now than ever before! Everyone that I have sent Reiki sessions to have felt fantastic after and I have had some great results! It is so wonderful... I am looking forward to Teaching this loving system of healing! Thank you Hans for all of your support and lessons! Namaste'

I have completed the level 2 initiation with Hans and have found the energy to be much stronger now. I now can send Reiki healing energies to distant family members. My Mother (who lives in Colorado) was having a lot of problems with a disc in her lower back and feeling a lot of pain. I arranged a time to send her a distance healing. My Mother told me that within 5 minutes she was sound asleep and when she woke up the next morning she felt wonderful! It has been over a month and her back has not hurt her since. She was amazed and very relieved.

I have been experiencing such spiritual growth since the second attunement. I can't believe how wonderful I feel!

Thank you Hans, for everything!

Peace, Light & Love,

I have recently been attuned by Hans for the level 1 Reiki. Although I had been attuned several years ago, I had not been practicing and felt the need to be reattuned. I had my doubts, because it was a distance attunement and I did not think it could be as powerful as the hands on. Was I suprised. At the given time I called Hans, we said a brief prayer and I put the phone down. Almost instantly I went into a hypnotic state, my head got extremly heavy as did my body and I had to lie down, my body felt as if it was vibrating, as if it was absorbing energy, there were visions of color and bright light and figures of people glowing in light all lined in a row as I passed them, it was all extremly peaceful and before I realized it the hour was over and my eyes automatically opened. I then called Hans and we discussed what had happened. After the attunement I was at such peace; all I could do was lie still for hours, I did not want to speak with anyone or do anything but enjoy the peace, in the days following I had lots of energy and my instincts were sharper than usual. I continue to do self healings and the healings that I have given since have been very powerful, for me and the recipient. There are many stressful energies in my life and when they start to pile up I do the Reiki excersices and it puts me right where I need to be. I am looking forward to moving on the second level with Hans. He has kept in touch via email and seems a very caring Reiki master.

Thank You Hans

I just completed the Tera Mai Reiki Practitioner Level 1 with Hans on June 29th and it was fantastic! At our pre-arranged time, I called Hans and we spoke briefly then we started. I was sitting up initially and it was similar to a healing session at first. I was very relaxed and comfortable. About half way through, I started seeing a shower of bright purple light then a bright white light showering down on me. It was like traveling very fast in space where the stars are a blur... I "heard" that the veil would be lifted and that I would have access to the knowledge. Then towards the end, I felt as if I could levitate and that I was changing and feeling lighter and like I "vibrated" at a different "frequency" is the only way I could verbalize it. When the initiation was over I called Hans again briefly to tell him of my experience and we have been in contact via Internet for him to answer any questions I've had. My intuition has become very keen, emotions are very even, and my physical problems seem to have either gone away or have dramatically improved. I have also noticed a definite spiritual growth as well. The healing energies that flow from my palms has greatly increased and I have been practicing Reiki on myself and anyone else that desires it.

I am very impressed to say the least!

Thank you Hans! I look forward to the Level 2 training!

Peace and Light,

JA
