Reiki & Energy Healing

Reiki is a gentle Japanese technique for stress reduction that also promotes healing. The word Reiki translates to “Universal life force energy” or “Spiritually guided life force energy” and receiving Reiki helps to strengthen our own life force energy within us. The Reiki energy flows through the practitioner to wherever it’s being directed and is administered by a laying on of hands, or by directing energy to the receiver’s energy field (aura).
     A person receiving Reiki feels deeply relaxed and often experiences a profound sense of peace. This stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system which allows the body to heal itself more effectively. Reiki can be a treatment in itself, but is not a substitute for medical care. It works very well to maximize the benefits of Western Medicine, as well as other forms of medical and alternative treatments. It can also minimize any side effects of other treatments.
      The action of Reiki is gentle but very powerful, helping to facilitate positive shifts in physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual wellness. Reiki can never cause harm, so is safe for anyone to use and is also very effective for helping animals and plants. Reiki can easily be learned by anyone in trainings which include “attunements” that connect the student to the energy of the Reiki and gives them the ability to work with it.

According to the principles of quantum physics our physical bodies aren’t really solid, but are basically holograms of light and information, a matrix of energetic patterns and frequencies. Because of this we are capable of changing those energy patterns and frequencies with our focused awareness and positive intent through Reiki Energy healing.

Therefore, we can change our health, our relationships, our finances, and other life situations by consciously shifting our energy fields and our perspective of life itself. Every one of us has this innate ability and Reiki helps us do this. So, contrary to what most of us have been taught, the truth is that we are quite in control of our own health and well-being.

Our physical and energetic bodies are literal outpicturings of what is going on within us – the result of everything we’ve ever done, everywhere we’ve ever been, every emotion we’ve ever felt, everything we’ve put into or on our bodies, every thought and feeling we’ve ever had, everything we have ever experienced in our lives.

As human beings our true nature is to experience life as a flow of Love, Gratitude, Grace, and Abundance, rather than disharmony, sadness, misery, and struggle. When we are balanced and clear, life feels free, joyful, effortless, where miracles become commonplace and challenges become opportunities for growth, rather than overwhelming road blocks. If you would like to discover your true nature and finally start living life as it is really meant to be, you’re in the right place! You have the power to change your life, and by healing yourself you begin to heal the world around you. No matter how you feel right now, you can feel better and help others feel better too!

Traditional Usui Reiki

Usui Reiki, the most popular form of Reiki today, is a very gentle, but deeply effective, form of hands on healing that works naturally with the body’s energy fields. While other forms of Reiki have been around for eons, Usui Reiki was discovered in 1922 by Mikao Usui and is a Japanese word that translates to “Spiritually Guided Life Force Energy” or “Universal Life Force Energy”. This Reiki energy healing, which is based on the principles of quantum physics, has been a proven therapy for almost 100 years and is highly effective for healing human and animal ailments.

In a Reiki session, the client lies on a massage table or sits up in a chair and the practitioner gently lays their hands on the client’s body where the energy is compromised, or works in the aura off the body, to balance and clear the energy in different areas.

Holy Fire® III Reiki – a new Reiki Energy

In 2014 William Lee Rand, the founder of the International Center for Reiki Training, discovered a new form or “upgrade” of the traditional Usui Reiki energy, called Holy Fire® Reiki, and it has been found to be more powerful and effective, yet gentler in its action. Because Reiki is a living, self-intelligent and ever evolving energy, it upgrades periodically as human consciousness is able to work with it. In 2016 the Holy Fire® Reiki energy upgraded itself to HF II, and upgraded itself again in October 2018 to HF III.

The Holy Fire® III Reiki energy is even higher frequency, more subtle, yet more powerful. One of the primary purposes of the HF III energy is to help us heal our Dormant Self, the unhealthy part of us that we bury so deeply we forget it’s even there, and our Culturally Created Self, the part of us that has been molded by our environment and cultural beliefs that don’t align with our true nature. Healing these unhealthy “Selves” allows our Authentic Self to be revealed, our true Self, so we can be the person we’re really meant to be. We at ICRT are very excited about this evolutionary process of the Holy Fire Reiki and Human Consciousness and are happy to offer you the most current information and Reiki updates we have.

Holy Fire® is the registered service mark of William Lee Rand

Holy Fire® III Karuna Reiki® – the Reiki of Compassion

Karuna is a Sanskrit word that can be translated as “compassionate action”, so Karuna Reiki® can be defined as the “Reiki of Compassion”. This form of Reiki was developed from 1993-1995 by the International Center for Reiki Training and has been in use ever since. It is now used in combination with the Holy Fire® III Reiki and is only offered by Reiki Masters who have received training through the ICRT.

(Usui/Holy Fire® III Karuna Reiki® is the basis for all healing sessions at Rising Light Reiki.)


An ancient Hawaiian technique for relationship healing that means “to make right”, Ho’oponopono is now used in modern times to heal issues with others by healing the part of yourself that’s connected to the issue. This in turn changes the world around you in very positive ways and also can help you manifest the life you really want. This technique is a healing tool that can easily be learned and used at home for continuing self-care.


This very powerful combination of Holy Fire® III Reiki and Ho’oponopono goes to the true origin of your issue and identifies, heals, and releases it from your energy field so it’s gone. It’s especially helpful for healing issues that seem mysterious or have not responded to other types of natural or traditional medical treatments.

Chakra & Meridian Clearing/Balancing

The energy of your major chakras and meridians is tested for weakness or blockages that stop the free flow of energy in your body, which can cause many problems. As blocks are cleared, your energy flows freely again which can help relieve physical and emotional issues and allow you to feel lighter, clearer, freer, and more positive.

EFT Tapping

This highly effective technique allows you to access your subconscious mind by using a combination of acupressure points and basic psychology. It is very useful for neutralizing the triggers that cause emotional pain and turmoil, behavioral issues, weight gain/loss, self-sabotage, etc. Once you learn it, you can then use it at home to continue healing yourself.
