What is Reiki?

Reiki (ray-kee) is an ancient Japanese healing technique that has steadily grown in the west since the 1940’s. Reiki means Universal life force energy or God-directed healing energy. It is a very gentle but powerful laying on of hands that helps the receiver to relax, reduce stress, and clear the blocks or distortions in their energy field that cause disease: mentally, emotionally, physically or spiritually.

Currently, there are well over 100 styles of Reiki being practiced on the planet, with various additions, flourishes or changes made by people since Reiki was first rediscovered by Dr. Mikao Usui of Japan in the 1920’s. Not all of those systems resemble the original intent or form. But widely accepted guidelines have been drawn for what constitutes a legitimate system of Reiki healing: a) the ability to do the healing comes from a specific initiation process, not something one does on his own; b) the healing system follows a lineage of practitioners that go back to the original founder; c) the healing energy comes from the Higher power, not one’s own; and d) the healing energy can do no harm.

What is Holy Fire Reiki? — A New Reiki Energy

Holy Fire Reiki is a new form of Reiki that was introduced by the International Center for Reiki Training in January of 2014 and now taught by Know Thyself Healing Center. It is both powerful and gentle and provides purification, healing, empowerment and guidance. It is included as part of our Usui Reiki classes and has been added to Karuna Reiki training.
Holy Fire energy is noticeably more refined and comes from a higher level of consciousness. Some of the qualities students have experienced include:

Works continuously and spontaneously heals issues as they come up.
Always respects free will.
Heals deeply and quickly without distress.
Heals relationships and interactions with others.
Releases worry, replacing it with a sense of safety in a most pronounced way.
Spontaneously provides guidance that is palatable for every level of life experience.
Tends to develop all the personality traits that are healthy for a person to have such as love of self and others, kindness, patience, confidence, vitality, enthusiasm, trust, joy, peace.
One of the more wonderful effects is a feeling of being loved. This is a deep and refined feeling that is nurturing.

Once received, it continues to develop itself to be more evolved and effective.
These qualities are present in I & II and become more pronounced in the ART/Master and Karuna classes.
