HOLY FIRE REIKI
(pronounced ray-key) is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing.
Rei - means spiritual wisdom
Ki - means life energy (also known as the vital life force or the universal life energy)
It was discovered by Mikao Usui in March 1922. Reiki is administered by "laying on hands" and techniques such as this have been practiced for thousands of years. Reiki is a very simple yet powerful technique that can be easily learned by anyone.
Holy Fire is the flame of divine love that our spirit and life force is made of, the spark of God that exists in everything. The energy and vibration of the Holy Fire Reiki master symbol comes directly from Source, “where all there is, is love,” the place of pure consciousness, beyond duality, form, and individuation. It is beyond masculine and feminine, it is pure love, which is at the core of all of creation.
When we invite the symbols of Holy Fire Reiki, we are directly connected to the source and guidance of pure divine love. Unconditional love.
This is the non-physical energy that animates all living things. Reiki is a special kind of Ki that is guided by spiritual consciousness, and is defined as spiritually guided life energy. (Reiki guides itself with its own wisdom, rather than requiring the direction of the practitioner)
