Usui / Holy Fire Reiki Holy Fire Reiki is an evolutionary form of Reiki Usui which was introduced in January 2014 by the International Center for Reiki Training. It is a kind Reiki but at the same time very powerful, providing healing, purification, centering and divine guidance.

The Holy Fire Reiki® energy is considerably more refined and comes from a higher level of consciousness. Some of the features that students have experienced during Holy Fire Reiki® courses include:

  • It works continuously even when you do not think about it and spontaneously heals issues as they arise
  • Always respects free will
  • Heals deeply and quickly without any tension or distress
  • Heals relationships and interactions with others
  • Releases worry and replaces 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, optimism, trust, joy, peace and so forth.
  • One of the more wonderful effects is a feeling of being loved. This is a deep and refined feeling that is very nurturing.
  • Once received, it continues to develop itself to be more evolved and effective.

Holy Fire Reiki® has no lineage. The lineage as used with Reiki Usui refers to the physical person who originally channeled energy. Nobody has channeled the Holy Fire energy. Therefore, the Usui/Holy Fire Reiki Ryoho lineage will remain with Usui Sensei.

A Teacher who wants to teach Holy Fire Reiki must be registered with the International Center for Reiki Training (ICRT). The manuals are directly delivered by the ICRT.


Unlike the Reiki Usui, in the Holy Fire Reiki® the Attunements are replaced by Placements, during which the teacher accompanies the students through a short guided meditation to help them enter a receptive state. After the guided meditation, the teacher stops talking. In the following 20 minutes the placements are given to the students directly from the Holy Fire. All four Usui symbols are still used. However, the energy is not Usui’s energy, but it has been enhanced with a new, more powerful and marvelous energy coming from the Holy Fire.

What the Holy Fire Reiki creator says, William Lee Rand:

“The use of the term Holy Fire does not have a religious meaning. The word Holy is meant as ‘total and complete’. Therefore, Holy Fire is a spiritual energy that creates integrity through purification, healing, centering and divine guidance.

“The nature of the Holy Fire Reiki energy is constantly evolving and developing and takes place within each student after training. Furthermore, while our Holy Fire Reiki energy develops, we are preparing for the important energy updates that can be received during the energy transmissions of the Holy Fire Training “

From our first experiences with Holy Fire, William Lee Rand and his students noticed that the harmonizations for the levels of Usui Master and Karuna® were considerably different from those they had previously experienced. They were told to call them ignitions (ignitions in Italian). Switches for Healing Tuning, I and II and ARTE are done in a similar way to how they were in the past with the teacher interacting physically with the student, but substituting the symbol of the Holy Fire for the violet breath and the Tibetan symbols. Complete instructions can be found in the revised manuals.

Holy Love Experience: This experience takes place in the classroom and installs Holy Love (Divine Love) in the soul. Divine Love is a kind of ‘special’ love that is more refined and has a higher level of consciousness than human love. It is simultaneously many things, it is the feeling of being loved by a kind and wonderful Being. It is the feeling of being assisted by a Being who intimately knows you and is fully capable of taking care of all your needs. It’s a feeling of security. It is a healing and improvement of one’s ability to love in such a way that there are no unhealthy feelings associated with it. It is a love that you have for yourself and others that feels very natural and normal. It is an energy similar to the vital energy that flows through your body and your whole being and is part of what you are. It is present in your space without having to focus on someone or something. Soothes, relaxes and nourishes and heals very deeply.

The Pre-Ingnition (pre-ignition) that takes place in the Holy Fire Reiki classes will purify your energy system in preparation for the Holy Fire ignition. Also, if you have received the Tibetan symbols and the purple breath technique in the previous courses, they will be released and replaced with the Holy Fire. The Tibetan symbols and the purple breath have been useful and are still useful for those who use them, but must be released so that the Holy Fire energies can be properly integrated.

Usui / Holy Fire ART / Master Teacher and Holy Fire Karuna Reiki® training takes place over 3 days. This is also the period necessary for those who are already Master Usui or Karuna Reiki® Master. There are several reasons for this. First of all, there is the period of time necessary after the pre-ignition to make sure that the purification process takes place before the first ignition. This is a minimum of 24 hours. The number of switch-ons occurring in the Master classes has increased compared to what was done in the first class. Now there are 2 Holy Fire Ignition ignitions and the Healing Fire Ignition, plus the Holy Love and Heavenly Banquet Hall meditations that must be distributed in the other 2 days. In addition, the Holy Fire formation creates a significant change in the student’s energy in which the restrictive models are replaced with the Holy Fire. This change takes time and must also be done in an energetically suitable environment in the presence of the teacher and other students.

They do not say that you need to practice the Holy Fire to be a valid Reiki Master; we honor all Reiki schools and believe that it is the right of every person to choose the Reiki system that he or she is guided to practice. Holy Fire Reiki is meant only for those who feel guided to practice it. If a person does not choose to do so, we honor the Reiki system that they have chosen as the right system for him or her.

After the death of Takata Sensei in 1980, many Reiki styles were developed and there are currently more than 15 different Reiki styles. So adding another style is really nothing unusual. What we did is take the Usui / Tibetan system and replace the Tibetan symbols and the violet breath with the Holy Fire symbol and energy. In this way we have created the Usui / Holy Fire Reiki system which includes the Usui system and all four Usui symbols.

A misconception that people have made is that a Reiki Master will have to repeat all Reiki levels in order to teach Holy Fire Reiki. In fact, all that is needed is to participate in the Holy Fire Karuna® training, to which all Reiki Masters can access, to be able to teach all levels of Holy Fire Reiki including I, II, ART, Master Teacher and Karuna Reiki® Master.

It is also said that, since Holy Fire Reiki uses religious terminology, it must be religious or it must be an attempt to promote religion or to mix Reiki with religion. Yes, we use the concepts of God, Holy Spirit and Jesus in the practice of Reiki Holy Fire. But these concepts are not used in a religious context. Religion does not possess God, the Holy Spirit or Jesus. These spiritual resources existed long before religion and it is not necessary for them to be part of a religious practice to gain access to them. It is our perception, understanding and experience that it is entirely possible to have a developing relationship with God, the Holy Spirit and Jesus without being part of a religious practice

However, people who have received a Christian education and have decided to stop going to church because of the fear, shame and condemnation they have been exposed to, usually come out with a religious trauma. Often they decide to be spiritual rather than religious, but because of the religious trauma they bring with them, they do not like to use the words God, Holy Spirit or Jesus, but instead they often use the word Source or Creator or Universal Spirit or something similar. We have been told that rather than changing words, it is much better to heal the trauma of these terms, because unresolved trauma weakens one’s connection regardless of the words used to describe them. This is one of the benefits of Holy Fire Reiki; energy helps to heal one’s religious trauma and thus to strengthen one’s connection. While honoring the choices people have made regarding whether or not they are part of a religious practice, Holy Fire Reiki is not religious, but helps to free the damage that could be felt due to having grown up in a religious environment.

We believe that Reiki is a miraculous gift that allows anyone to heal themselves and others. We believe that all Reiki systems have value and that the right Reiki system for an individual is the one they have chosen to practice. We are happy for all those who practice Reiki and wish and pray that all Reiki practitioners will live happy, healthy and prosperous lives and be a blessing to all those around them.
