“Reiki is love, love is wholeness, wholeness is balance, balance is well-being, and well-being is freedom from disease.”
- Dr. Mikao Usui
Reiki Holy Fire
Healing and wholeness come about as a sprout breaking the soil’s surface after a long winter. At first we feel vulnerable, but we eventually bloom into something stronger and more beautiful than we ever imaged possible. I have come to understand that the soil requires a balance between showing up and letting go, of giving and receiving.
Reiki is the transformation that happens when we let go and allow ourselves to receive unconditional love.
After years of disconnection from my Japanese roots and having mixed experiences with Reiki, a dear friend asked if she could “practice” Holy Fire Reiki on me. I put practice in quotes because what I experienced was incredibly profound. I experienced a coming home, a translucent and finely spun light moving through every cell in my body.
Shortly after, I discovered that the man who first received the frequency of Reiki energy here on earth was named Mikao, a rare name in Japan that is the masculine form of my name. I felt a deep connection to him and chose to train in the Holy Fire lineage because despite my friend’s newness, it was the most powerful Reiki session I’d ever received.
Reiki can be done over distance or in person and involves laying down and being open to receiving an energy that the practitioner channels into your body. The experienced can be dramatic or deeply relaxing, depending on what your system needs.
