How is Holy Fire® Reiki I & II different from other lineages?
William Rand and the International Center for Reiki Training introduced Holy Fire® Reiki in 2014. This new form of reiki is now part of the ICRT's reiki classes.
"It is both powerful and gentle and provides purification, healing, empowerment and guidance." — ICRT
Holy Fire® energy is noticeably more sophisticated, coming from a higher level of consciousness. No one religion is associated with Holy Fire® energy — a divine and intuitive energy that protects and guides those who experience it.
During a certification class, students receive the unique Holy Fire® energy through a process called placement, which can be performed in class or in one of Mandy's sessions. This is slightly different from the attunement used in the original Usui reiki. The placement is guided by the Holy Fire® Reiki energy and the student's free will. This separates the teacher's energy from the process in a way that a traditional hands-on attunement does not, enabling the teacher to hold the space for this process in a most beautiful way — separate from their belief system and ego self.
My experience recognizing my healing powers was profound, and I've never faltered or questioned the path I have taken. The deeper I healed myself, the more I could understand why I was being drawn to reiki. The more I understood, the deeper I healed myself and let go of what was no longer serving me. The space created through letting go led to an experience of joy I'd never felt before.
My first Holy Fire® class was offered online during COVID-19, and I've since retaken Levels 1 and 2 and the master-level course in person. I'd never experienced a reiki session before, but I recognized and listened to my intuition. I felt a strong knowing that I was being offered a tool to learn that would empower and protect me. Then, I followed the path on which I was gently guided. I felt empowered and full of life-force energy after every class.
Now, I know that I was being guided to reiki healing so I could protect myself as an empath healer while helping individuals and the world heal. I've learned that reiki guides our lives and empowers us starting the moment we ask for it.
