"After 26 years of practicing Usui Reiki I can say with confidence that Reiki can never do harm and always provides improvement. It is also always evolving to ever more potent energies for healing."
Deborah O'Brien, Usui/Holy Fire® III Karuna® Reiki Master
Reiki, a Japanese word, translates to Rei = Spiritual wisdom and Ki = Life Energy Force.
It is an energy healing art that was given to Mikao Usui while he was on a 21 day meditation fast on a mountain known as Kuramayama, Japan in March of 1922. He went on to open clinics in Japan and teach his methods passing this amazing energy healing on to others so it has become widespread in it's use all over the world. It is a constant source of energy that provides ever more increased access to the unlimited potential of deep inner peace and wisdom it possesses. It is evolves and improves each time it is used to provide deeper connection to the spiritual aspect of each individual as they develop rapport and trust in it's many uses.
Reiki comes from the source of all creation so has it's own wisdom and intelligence as you allow it to flow through and from you. The practitioner develops a relationship of trust in the wisdom of intuitive guidance when using Reiki energy for best outcome. This enhances the heart's knowing - wisdom - that is useful in all of life's circumstances.
A full session is a simple practice that can be done while seated in a chair or lying on a massage table fully dressed and comfortable with pillows and blankets. Reiki provides a deeply relaxing peaceful effect for healing. The energy is guided through the hands of the practitioner while gently touching or hovering over the energy centers of the body and the affected areas in need of treatment.
Reiki As A Way Of Living
Reiki is useful in so many ways! It is life force energy that can do no harm and is a part of all living things. For yourself and others Reiki can be used when you have a stomach ache, a headache, sinus trouble, sore throat, bruise or abrasion, broken bone, surgery of any kind, toothache, virtually ANY kind of suffering can be eased including emotional and mental stress. It can be used to improve relationships with people you love and people you don't like who are causing difficulty in your life. In it's unconditional love and infinite wisdom the outcome is always according to Divine Order for the highest good for all concerned. The practitioner never dictates what that may be, yet the outcome always brings more peace and harmony for all concerned.
Reiki can be used very effectively on animals and plants, too! They love it! It calms your pet and eases suffering of any kind.
Reiki Enhances Other Types of Treatments
Many people in health care recognize the unlimited value of this simple practice to enhance the quality of their work. Nurses, massage therapists, chiropractors, MDs, surgeons, dentists, even veterinarians have become familiar with the many uses of Reiki energy to improve the outcomes for their patients.
There is a non-profit, the NW Reiki Association, where members volunteer to share Reiki with cancer patients in chemo clinics in Portland, Oregon. Mini-sessions are given to patients as they receive their chemo drips. Reiki works to diminish the side effects from the radiation treatment while enhancing the benefits.
There are 3 levels in Usui Reiki, first, second, and Master. The first and second levels are taught together in a two day class. The Usui/Holy Fire® III Master course is a 3 day class. Then there is Holy Fire III Karuna Reiki®.
Karuna Reiki® is form of Reiki which provides more refined energies for healing deep core issues of child abuse, sex abuse, addiction, ancestral patterns, mental health issues, emotional disturbances, and more. This is taught with Holy Fire® III Reiki. This course can be taken once a student has been trained in Master level from any school or lineage and has practiced for a minimum of 6 months. Karuna Reiki® when taught with Holy Fire® III Reiki produces an on-going healing effect that continues long after the class has finished.
Holy Fire® III Reiki is a very recently (2014, 2015, 2018) refined form of energy healing that comes from the Third Heaven and above. It is a continuing evolvement of the very deep healing that Usui Reiki provides. The change is that each individual has a direct connection to the healing energy without the practitioner or teacher physically interacting with them. When shared in this manner the energies do not become diffused by the practitioner or teacher as they pass through to the recipient. They are experienced in a meditative state with each person going on a inward journey. This new Holy Fire® III Reiki is what we teach for all classes from beginner to Karuna®.
