Attunements, Initiations, & Empowerments differences in:

Attunements, Initiations, & Empowerments
differences in:


When 1 person Attunes another the process is
changing the electrical network of the person being attuned.
Usually attuning them to a Different or Higher Frequency.
The person being attuned must be open to allow this to happen,
and the person doing the attunement must already be attuned to
the energy they are passing on.


Being Initiated into a System is different then
an Attunement because all the initiation does it being forth
what that person already has within them. After being Initiated
the person is tapping into a resource that has existed all
along, but the person didn't realize it, they for making it
known so they can now use it. Most Initiations are passed down
though someone already Initiated into the system.


This is completely different then both listed
above. Being Empowered to an Animal, Flower, or Crystal/Stone,
helps you to pick up the qualities of the thing your being
Empowered too. These Qualities already exist inside you, but
this makes those qualities stronger. Also you have control over
what qualities of these, you want to bring forth and start
using. Empowerments happen in 2 ways: A lot of Empowerments are
Self-Empowerments, because you read and study the item you wish
to be Empowered too, them making a Statement with Intent will
be enough to bring these qualities forth. You can also be
Empowered by someone else, at which time the person during the
Empowerment will pass the qualities though a statement of

Dear Louise, you are can ask your higherself to attune you in energies of attunements...empowerments...initiations...

A flush is also attunement, where flush performs something like a shower with light....purification....

Thanks for your reply about selfattunements Amba! I understand but in the selfattunements in the manual it is still an attunement where someone put it "out there". How about calling in an energy that you know is "out there" and now one made an attunement for it, I am right that it is then still possible to call the attunement in yourself by asking your higher self to attune you to this energy?

I hope you understand what I mean.

Love and Light

Hi, Amba!  Really great info and explanations...thank you for this insightful resource for use in explaining this to others as well as understanding it ourselves.  But, can you please explain how flushes work as well and how they differ from the attunements, etc?  Thanks!  Sending love and light!

Receiving Chi Balls

To pick up an empowerment or attunement sent from another person , Ground and Protect yourself by shielding with a ball of White Light or whatever works for you calling in your healing guides and angels. Go into a meditative state. Then call in the Chi Ball by intent. “I now call in the Chi Ball which carried the_________(healing energy/attunement) from _______. I accept this Chi Ball now with love, light, peace and gratitude. Visualize the ball opening and entering your Crown Chakra. The energy will pour out of the Chi Ball and begin to attune (initiate) and bring energy of healing to you.

After the attunement/healing session, thank your guides/angels for their help.

Receiving attunements will boost your own healing energy and connect you to more spirit helpers. Sharing attunements also boosts your energy fields.

The Chi Ball is one of the most simple and effective ways of sending healing energy and attunements. It is your energy that forms the Chi Ball. You control the energy that goes directly into the Chi Ball. Your intent creates the color, the size; and everything that goes into it. You send it with your breath and energy. Once the Chi Ball is created, you disconnect from the Chi Ball and it stands on its own completely energized and ready to be sent.
To make the Chi Ball, we need to prepare ourselves by centering, grounding and protecting. To Center, bring your awareness to your navel and take a big breath into your belly. You are now in the present moment. Remember energy follows intention, so keep your focus. To Ground, see energy cords like roots of a tree connecting deep into the Earth’s core and anchor it somehow. Then to Protect, shield yourself with a Ball of White Light. See it, feel it, know that it is surrounding your entire being. You may also visualize symbols surrounding you like a pyramid, Archangel Michael’s Symbol or a Merkaba.
Sit in a chair with feet on the floor. Look at your hands palms up. See them, the lines that create the skin, the fingers, and the palms. Now take your hands and place them at just chest level, comfortable for you to work easily with during this exercise. Go into a meditative state.

Take your hands and face the palms to each other. Hold them close to each other and feel the energy as it builds. Now slowly bring your hands apart to about 4 inches from one another and allow the energy to travel with the motion. The energy is warm, and you can feel it build between your two palms. Mold that energy with your hands to form a ball round and complete. With your hands in this position, please take a breath through your nose and breathe deeply with your diaphragm (solar plexus). Now exhale through your mouth, quietly; and evenly into your chi ball held between your hands.
You are giving the ball your Light Energy. Feel the energy go to the space between your hands. Feel a heartbeat in the space between your hands, and take a moment and feel that energy build with gentle power. Allow your hands to form a ball around the energy you have created.

Once the energy is in the Chi Ball, it is cleansed and purified and made perfect. Chi energy is perfect energy. It also protects you and the recipient of the energy from any negative forces in the sending and receiving of it.

Empower Self
Direct your hands down to your Solar Plexus. Gently push the Chi Ball within you and feel it’s energy pulsing. Take a deep breath and direct the ball’s energy to flow all through your body from head to foot. Now feel this energy and pay attention to where it flows. Have gratitude.
Empower Others

Create your Chi Ball by calling in your healing guides, angels and/or being of light specific to the attunement (e.g., Quan Yin,Archangel Michael) to be there with you. Trace long-distance healing symbols if you know of any. Now open the Chi Ball with your dominant hand and then intend exactly what you wish to go into the ball: the persons name, the link, empowerment or attunement to a specific deity, energy or spirit helper, and any other pertinent information needed. See it, feel it, know that the energy is forming. You may also envision the person’s spirit sitting before you. I usually feel an angelic presence surrounding my being with their wings. I’ll also feel energy pouring into my crown and coming out my hands as my consciousness lifts. Each helper has a different vibration.
let this energy now flow into the Chi Ball. Take a deep breath and blow that energy into the ball. Now close the ball with your dominant hand. Envision the recipient in front of you. Then imagine you are placing the Chi Ball right into their Crown Chakra. See it filling up their entire being. Take another breath and allow it to blow the Chi Ball off to the person you are sending it to. Send it on its way asking that their spirit go back to their body and easily and safely integrate this energy into their being.
If you are sending one attunement to several people, now call on the next person’s being with guides and attunement specified already present.

After you have sent the Chi Ball, thank your guides, spirit helpers and angels for their assistance and support.

Self Attunements can be accessed by anyone, anytime and anywhere. All you have to do is simply be in a relaxed meditative state and call upon the appropriate energy. Instructions are included in every self attunement manual .

Thank you for this explanation Amba!

I am wondering though, about attunements, it says the attunement must be done by someone who is already attuned to this energy. But what about self-attunements? As fas as I understand it, you can ask your higher self to attune you to Reiki or other systems or for example an Angel or Ascended Master. Am I right about this?

Love and Light

Can you also detail how flushes differ from other energy work too please?  :-)  Much appreciated.

Makes a lot of sense.  Thank you Amba.
