How do I pay for my Distant Attunement and Healing Sessions?

 

The Academy of LivingReiki Therapies accepts payments through PayPal or Credit Card using the PayPal Guest Checkout or Stripe. If you use Stripe as your payment option, please be aware that your payment will take 3 working days to arrive in my account meaning that no attunements will be given until your payment has cleared. Your credit card information will also be encoded meaning that I will not receive any information about your credit card. Your details will also not be shared with any 3rd party.  

 

 

When will I receive my Manual and replies to my Emails? 

 

Attunement manuals are now given via automatic links so that you can download your manuals as soon as payment has been sent. The manual links will be located at the bottom of the "Thank You" Email that you will receive when the payment process has been completed. All emails will be replied to within 24-48 hours. I will always try to reply within the house but please allow up to 2 working days for a full reply to be sent. The Academy also asks that all emails which are sent do not exceed more than 100 - 150 words per email and that each email is strictly kept to the teachings that are being given.I ask this because of the number of students that I am teaching at any given time which can exceed 40-50 in a day. I also ask for students to honour my time as a teacher and understand that I am not always at the computer so I may occasionally reply to an email with a message that I am busy with clients who have booked themselves in for in person healings or I am not available that day so a full reply will be sent the next working day. This is not dishonouring you as a student of the Academy, it is asking you to respect my time as a teacher to multiple students who all need my time to help them or reply to their emails. If any Email is sent which strays from the subject being taught or becomes violent, negative or accusatory I hold the right to withdraw your teachings and I will not reply to your email. 

 

 

Attunement Refunds and Exchanges {Please read this section carefully}

 

Due to the nature of online spiritual teaching, distant attunements and with your manuals being delivered via an automatic downloadable link upon completion of your payment refunds are not given! If you have purchased a Lightarian Attunement with e-manual you can cancel your purchase but the payment for the e-manual will be deducted from your refund. The Consumer Rights Act 2015 is the official legislation in the UK which dictates that a mandatory 30 day period in which seller (The Academy of LivingReiki Therapies) must offer a refund to a customer if the original downloadable product is faulty. This means if the emailed manual is corrupt and won't open and I am unable to issue a new e-manual that is working you are entitled to a refund. Proof of the e-manual not working must be supplied before a refund can be issued. Repairs and replacements must be offered first if the content of your original document/documents are deemed "faulty". Digital goods must be "of satisfactory quality, "fit for purpose" and "as described," according to the Act's legalese. 

If you purchase a duplicate attunement by mistake then a refund will be issued for the duplicated item within 24 hours but if you have purchased an attunement and simply change your mind then no refund is given. This is in accordance with the Consumer Rights Act of 2015! You must make sure that if you purchase an attunement from the Academy of LivingReiki Therapies you will uphold your side to the agreement of receiving the attunements that you have purchased. Paypal disputes will not be accepted and PayPal will not claim the refund on your behalf in these circumstances. 

 

If you have purchased an Advanced Package from the Academy in late 1990 and early 2000 but have not honnoured your part of the agreement to receive your attunements in a timely manner, you will be contacted to see if you wish to proceed with the package. If you have changed your mind and no longer wish to proceed with the package, refunds are not given. This is due to the amount of time that has passed since the original purchase and the commitment that you made with the Academy when you signed up for the package. The Academy also holds the right to charge an administration fee of £50 per student to update their records if attunements have not been received for several years. 

 

Distant Attunements and Certification

 

Distant Attunements are sent using the call-in method or via a real-time connection. I do also ask all students to please leave 24 hours from the time of purchase before requesting your attunement to be sent. This is to ensure that you have read through the manual provided and have had time to ask any questions that you have while also receiving a full reply to these questions. Unlike other teachers, I will not send your Attunements on the same day or at the same time as the manual is sent to you. At the Academy, we see this method of working unprofessional and it does not build an energetic connection between the teacher and student for the attunement to take place. The Academy is not a re-selling website. We are a genuine Spiritual Teaching Academy where we hold your Spiritual Welfare at the forefront of our services! 

 

All Attunements must be requested within 30 days of your purchase. For International Students, please be aware that the Academy is located in the United Kingdom so this will have to be taken into consideration when arranging your attunement if a real-time connection is required. If you choose the call-in method, your distant Attunements will be set up on the date that we have arranged. All purchased Attunements that are sent using the call-in method will be set up between the hours of 9am and 5pm (GMT). If you are receiving a multi-levelled attunement you can request all levels to be sent at one time so that you can accept them at your convenience, but this is only available for call-in Attunements. If appointed time connections are requested, your Attunements will be sent on separate days so multiple dates will have to be arranged.

 

You (the student) are also responsible for keeping track of your attunements and attunement bookings. When an attunement is booked for a specific time and day, the attunement will be sent on that day. If for any reason, I am unable to send the attunement I will email you within 24 hours of the booking to request a new date be arranged. I am also not responsible for sending a reminder about your attunement. I again will send the attunement on the day that has been booked and I will email you within 24 hours of the attunement being sent to check in with you. The Academy of LivingReiki Therapies is not responsible if you forget about your attunement or do not make a physical note of the arranged day and time. If you forget to accept your attunement at any time or leave a period of time from purchase of the attunements to the requesting of your attunements to be sent you will be required to make an administration payment of 25% of the original price paid. 

 

Attunement certificates are sent to the student within 24-48 hours of you receiving your attunement. I kindly ask that you do not accuse me of not caring if you are not sent your certificate straight away. I have many other students who I need to attune, email and issue certificates so I work in line with first come first served. Certificates are not to be requested several weeks or months after the attunement has been received. All certificates will come with a hand signed signature and genuine lineage. Certificates for multi levelled Attunements will be sent to you with the master level (after you have received all levels). If you have taken your attunement using the call-in method, you must email me after the a maximum of 2-3 attunements have been called in. I will not accept certificate requests for more than 3 certificates at any given time. You must also send me your full name, the attunements received, date of acceptance for your certificate to be issued. Duplicate certificates will require an administration fee of £1 per certificate to be paid in full before any duplicate is given. Your emailed certificate will be professionally designed to state your connection to your received attunement. No alteration to the wording or design is permitted or offered!

What will I experience during a Distant Attunement? 

 

Attunements are a unique event for every person so no one will ever experience the same thing. Some people will sense energies more than others. Some students will be given visuals of Colourful Lights, Spirit Guides, Animal Guides, loved ones who have crossed over, Ascended Masters or visions of Beautiful Landscapes. There are however times when nothing is seen or felt. This will quite often worry the recipient of the attunement resulting in a deep inner concern that they have not been attuned. I would like to promise you now that if this occurs it never means that you have not been attuned or that the energies were not received. At times, an attunement will enter into your consciousness with a whisper of energy due to personal situations you might be experiencing at that time which needs to be cleared and resolved before the energies will manifest within your life. At other times, the energies will simply flow into your Etheric Background so that they can slowly filter through your consciousness over a period of days, weeks or even months after the main attunement is accepted. Always remember that energy is an intelligent force and simply intending for the Energetic Vibrations to enter into your life is all that is needed. 

 

If re-attunement is requested, these can be sent but there is an administration fee of 25% of the original price that you paid for the re-attunement to be sent. This is asked to cover my time to re-book the attunement for a 2nd time into my diary. Attunements work, whether you feel them or not so please make sure that the re-attunement is needed before requesting one to be sent!
