Holy Fire II Reiki
Holy Fire Reiki is a transmission given to William Lee Rand t in 2014 that showed him a truer source of Ki energy and a new Master symbol that he was guided to teach to the rest of the world. With guidance from his Spiritual Advisor that he has been learning from for the last 19 years, Master Rand was able to hone this new energy and incorporate it into all of ICRT's (International Center for Reiki Training) teachings. It is thought to come from the purest source of Ki Energy and operates on a much higher vibrational frequency than regular Usui Reiki. For more readings from ICRT about Holy Fire Reiki and for Master Rand's personal account, please go to their website at http://www.reiki.org/holyfire.html.
Because Holy Fire Reiki operates on a more refined stream of energy, it can work more quickly and give more energy than Usui Reiki or Karuna Reiki ® sessions that recipients might have experienced in the past. Holy Fire Reiki practitioners have reported to ICRT that when people experience this energy, they see the color gold or ultraviolet. They also report that receivers experience extremely focused energy, centered on certain body parts at a very intense, though not painful, frequency. Recipients also reported feeling an overwhelming sense of love and being loved, as well as a profound sense of release.
My personal experience of Holy Fire Reiki confirms these reports. Most of my clients have reported seeing shades of gold and ultraviolet. I have had one client describe it as soft, liquid honey being poured on their specific areas of concern. The most common descriptions are sensations of extreme heat or warmth coming from me and flowing into their bodies. I feel a similar sensation of heat when working with my clients. In this case, “heat” is a word being used to describe a sensation that is intense; it isn’t actually heat, as it causes us no pain and no burning. Some people report the sensation as extreme cold rather than heat. Our minds liken the sensation to the closest thing we can use to describe it. Terms like “heat” or “cold” are commonly used by people describing their experiences with this energy. In any case, it is undoubtedly a very concentrated frequency that works on your body and mind. My hands have never experienced such extreme vibration from working with any other form of energy. It is extremely invigorating, and it leaves me ecstatic after a session.
Holy Fire Reiki does share part of the same frequency that I have experienced with Sekhem energy. The energy has the same high vibration that pulsates over my crown chakra, and I see the same colors as with Sekhem. However, the exciting sensation of Holy Fire Reiki shared with the clients goes much deeper and works much faster than Sekhem. A session using Usui Reiki or Karuna Reiki ® can sometimes take up to an hour and a half, depending on my clients’ needs. I am now starting to notice that a healing session can be done in an hour or slightly less with Holy Fire Reiki.
The most notable thing about Holy Fire Reiki, should you choose to learn it, is that the symbols that you use from Master level Usui Reiki have to change. Holy Fire Reiki requires our body’s energy system to be re-aligned with these new vibrations. What this means is that any practitioner who has received the two Tibetan symbols during their Master initiation has to have the symbols dissolved by Holy Fire energy. The symbol for Holy Fire then becomes the ultimate master symbol, replacing the two Tibetan Symbols.
If you are a Usui Reiki Master, I know what you must be thinking of when reading this last paragraph. Why would you want to remove two incredibly powerful symbols from your system? Some people in my class have been practicing these symbols for twenty to thirty years, and are very attached to them. However, when William Lee Rand, my teacher, explained the need to replace these symbols, his logic was easy to follow. He told us that you should think of this process as an upgrade. When you upgrade your car, you replace the parts that no longer serve your purpose. The same idea applies to Holy Fire Reiki. It is an upgrade to your vibration energy, and it allows you to access the energy level you should be using at this point in time. The two Tibetan symbols have served their purpose for that particular level of Reiki and may now be retired.
Holy Fire II is an Upgrade that was created by William Lee Rand a couple of years after Holy Fire, I believe. As the energy continued to evolve, Holy Fire II has shown us a capability to stabilize the energy enough to work with other types of Reiki. So, if you were to practice Rainbow Reiki, Angelic Reiki, Sufi Reiki, etc, this upgrade can be given to a Master Holy Fire practitioner so that there would be no conflict within their body, mind, and spirit when practicing other types of Reiki. The Holy Fire II upgrade also has a unique way of replacing the older tradition of Attunements from the Usui tradition, with what Holy Fire Reiki is calling, Placements. Placements are different to Attunements in that the teacher only holds sacred space for the student to receive Holy Fire Reiki directly from source, thus allowing the student to have access to pure source energy. The teacher does not interject in any way and has no chance of negative transference of energy from the teacher to the student. In an Attunement ritual, a student relied on the teacher's ability to place symbols energetically within a student and to channel into them Reiki to open up their chakras. Thus having chances of transference from teacher to student which is not the purest source of energy. What I like about this new Placement ceremony is that we are no longer relying on the teacher to be the sole provider of this amazing Reiki ability as who is the teacher really? Another mortal with very real egos that they themselves battle every day. It is incredibly rare to have a teacher so completely pure themselves that there would be no chance of negative transference during such a delicate state of raising your vibrations higher. This also releases our attachment to the idea that all things require someone else to give you permission to do. Your ability to channel Holy Fire Reiki is between you and Reiki and no one else.

I do believe this goes with the Buddhist thought of attachment as well. The ultimate goal in Buddhism is to attain enlightenment, or Nirvana. The Eight Fold Path guides us to Nirvana by releasing all attachments that do not promote our higher selves. So, if one grows attached to certain symbols and certain teachers, which prevents them from reaching a higher vibration, then it might signal an unhealthy and limiting attachment.
You will also notice from my website that I now have to write Holy Fire in front of Karuna Reiki ® and Usui Reiki. This is because the Holy Fire attunements that I have received changes the way I teach and give Placements to my students to Reiki. So my teaching style will be different from other practitioners who only do Karuna Reiki ® or Usui Reiki.
Again, I would like to state the same thing that I did after the Karuna Reiki ® description: a healer has to listen to their intuition. The best way to discover whether Holy Fire Reiki is right for you is to take a session or a class from a certified practitioner and trust your instincts. If for some reason the energy does not feel right to you, then maybe it is not the right time for you to take up this practice.
