“Holy Fire Reiki is not so much a different energy than Usui Reiki, it expands our awareness of Divine energy. Before Holy Fire we were only aware of a portion of Divine Healing energy, thanks to Holy Fire, we have become aware of Reiki in an expanded way.
Usui, himself said ‘Reiki would continue to evolve’ Perhaps what was misunderstood through translation, could have been that humanity it self would evolve to understand Reiki in a greater way, perhaps.”
~Laurelle Gaia


The use of the word Holy in the name Holy Fire is NOT religious in meaning. The word HOLY has as its root meaning TO BE WHOLE AND COMPLETE and this is how it is used in HOLY FIRE.  Therefore HOLY FIRE is a spriritual energy that creates wholeness through purifuication, healing, empowerment and guidance.


Usui Holy Fire Reiki  is both powerful and gentle and provides purification, healing, empowerment and guidance that continues to evolve in its effectiveness.. It is being introduced by the International Center for Reiki Training. The Usui Holy Fire Reiki energy is noticeably refined and comes from a higher level of consciousness than any energy we have encountered before, it is also more effective.  One of the more wonderful effects is a feeling of being loved.

Is Holy Fire a Religion?

No. Holy Fire Reiki is a spiritual healing energy that is holistic in nature. The use of the word holy in the name Holy Fire  has as its root meaning, to be whole and complete and this is how it is used in Holy Fire. Therefore, Holy Fire is a spiritual energy that creates wholeness through purification, healing, empowerment and guidance.

How do I take Holy Fire III if there are no classes that I see offered for Holy Fire II

Holy Fire II Classes encompasses Holy Fire I. So when you register for Holy Fire III Classes you are receiving Holy Fire I & II.  

Are the Tibetan Symbols used in Holy Fire Reiki?

The Holy Fire energy does not need the qualities of the Tibetan symbols, as it stands alone with the original Usui symbols. When one who is previously attuned to the tibetan symbols  accepts Holy Fire training, the tibetan symbols are “retired”. Holy Fire accomplishes all that the tibetan symbols did and more through a high frequency of very refined energy.

Are Reiki Guides a part of Holy Fire Reiki?

The Holy Fire itself provides guidance. The purpose of spirit guides is to guide us to Source. Holy Fire is the direct connection to Source. You may find that guides from the third heaven (dwelling place of Source) may still bring you messages, as they are messengers of the Holy fire. If you are already working with with guides that are compatible with holy fire, you will still find them helpful. As in all phases of our spiritual journey, guides come and go as we heal and grow.

I am already a Usui Reiki Master, Can I receive an attunment without attending Class?

No. The Reiki Holy Fire training is done over a period of three days in either the ART/Master or the Karuna Reiki® training. This is a necessary time period, even for those who are already Usui or Karuna Reiki® Masters. There are several reasons for this. First of all, there is the time period necessary after the pre-ignition in order for the purification process to take place prior to the first ignition. This is a minimum of 24 hours. The number of ignitions that take place in the Master classes has increased from what were done in the first class.

There are now two Holy Fire ignitions and the Healing Fire ignition, plus three beautiful Holy Fire meditations, which must be spread out over the additional 2 days. In addition, the Holy Fire training creates a significant shift in the student’s energy in which restrictive patterns are replaced with Holy Fire. This shift takes time and also needs to be done in a supportive environment in the presence of the teacher and other students.

I am already a Usui Reiki Master, do I have to take Usui Holy Fire Reiki I & II in order to attend a Usui Holy Fire Reiki Master or Holy Fire Karuna Reiki Class?

No, you do not need to repeat Reiki I & II as long as you were previously attuned to the traditional Usui Reiki symbols in level II.

Why were we guided with the Tibetan Symbols for so long? Are they still a part of Reiki?

There are many levels of free will. The Tibetan symbols are appropriate at certain phases along the path of one’s soul progression. The energy brought forth through working with them has/is teaching humanity much. They have also brought forth great growth. Humanity is at a place now where new levels of free will open as you mature to new levels of Divine consciousness. As this growth is happening, more of the Divine Plan is being revealed and unfolding. There has been a guarding of this newly revealed level of free will. The guarding has been to insure right use of free will. A deeper understanding  of the power of free has been and is being achieved and was necessary prior to this new opening. There are other levels of free will that have yet to open. The Tibetan symbols have been helpful in this guarding process. ~ Laurelle Gaia

What level of Holy Fire Reiki Training do I need to take so I can teach all levels ?

Students who are trained as an Usui/Holy Fire Reiki Master Teacher will be qualified to teach:

  • Usui Holy
  • Holy Fire Reiki I & II
  • Usui Holy Fire Reiki Master Teacher classes

Students who are trained as a Holy Fire Karuna Reiki Master Teacher are qualified to teach:

  • Usui Holy
  • Holy Fire Reiki I & II
  • Usui Holy Fire Reiki Master Teacher classes
  • Holy Fire Karuna Reiki Master Teacher

What is the lineage of Usui Holy Fire Reiki?

The original Usui Reiki symbols, and their attunements are very much a part of Usui Holy Fire Reiki. Therefore the lineage remains with Usui Sensei.

It sounds like the Violet Flame. How is that different from the Sacred Transmuting Holy Fire?

People have so many different relationships, and interpretations of healing flames, I hesitate to answer your question directly, because I am not aware of how you experience the Violet Flame, or the sacred transmuting holy fire. What I can say is that I am experiencing Holy Fire Reiki on a much more personal level, and my healing issues are shifting and clearing so rapidly I can barely recall why they were ever issues in the first place. The responses from students and clients are thrilling, in that people are being moved so deeply so quickly. ~ Laurelle Gaia

What about those of us who don't have Holy Fire Reiki yet and those who choose to stay with the Tibetan Symbols; What are we to do?

We encourage you to follow your inner guidance and do what you feel is right for you to do. The ICRT will continue to make the ART/Master manual with the Tibetan symbols and violet breath available for sale as long as people want to teach it.  Also, to clarify the situation,  the Tibetan symbols and violet breath will continue to work just as they always have for those who do not take Holy Fire Reiki.

Are there symbols that come with this new training? Additionally who was involved in the development of this system and what is the story behind it’s development? I have noticed that many of the changes that the planet it’s self are going through do involve fire its interesting to see that Reiki its self is using that medium.

Yes, there is one new symbol and some shifting out of the Tibetan symbols. Indeed there are many changes taking place on the planet as we shift in consciousness closer and closer to the awakening of the age of peace. Just as Karuna Reiki came on the scene in 1995 and new frequencies were introduced to help us learn, heal and grew along our spiritual path, Holy Fire is arising now. I find it interesting that similar energies relating to sacred flames, are cropping up in frameworks other than Reiki just as Holy Fire Reiki is coming to us too. The time is obviously right.

So to answer who is involved in the development of Holy Fire Reiki, some in the ICRT had inklings of its energy for a year or more but it hadn’t expressed itself clearly enough to know how to use it.  Then in January, 2014, William Rand had a session with a spiritual advisor he had been seeing for 19 years and who several of the other ICRT teachers had also been seeing.  In this session he was told he would be teaching a new energy in the class he was to teach the next day.  He was given the name of the energy, how to draw the symbol and an attunement for it. Then over the course of the class he had additional sessions prior to class in which it was further explained how to teach Holy Fire Reiki.  Jessica Miller, one of our ICRT teachers was in this class and William also shared information about Holy Fire Reiki with myself, Colleen Benelli and Karen Harrison each of who also received the attunements (which we now call ignitions) and instructions on how to teach.

Before announcing it to the Reiki community, it was taught to 250 students and found that the benefits remained consistent for all who took the class. Over time, additional instructions from the same source have been received to further develop the system.

To be more specific, the energy of Holy Fire Reiki and the instructions on how to teach it come from the Holy Spirit.  With this in mind, it’s important to understand that there is no religious connection implied by this. However, what it does is create a direct connection to Source that is free of dogma or required beliefs or the need follow a leader.
