While I have been teaching Reiki classes since 2009, Joe was going to take his first Master teacher training with William. We knew this would be an amazing experience, but had no idea what truly was in store for us. We arrived in Hawaii with great anticipation for the class. William's home in Hana, where he teaches his classes there, was lovely and had a magnificent view of the ocean.
Very shortly into the class, I realized that this was not going to be the 'review' of ART/Master training that I expected. Something different was happening. As William explains in detail in his article at http://www.reiki.org/holyfirehtml, he was about to introduce to our group the birth of Usui/Holy Fire Reiki.
All of my initial doubts or questions seemed to fade almost instantly in the presence of Holy Fire energy. What kept resonating with me over and over were William's words that it was ''all being taken care of." Although the introduction of this new energy and subsequent changes to the ART/Master class were bound to present a lot of questions and challenges, William proceeded forward with the class in a most gentle yet assured way.
When I sat to his left for our first meditation on the first day of class, I saw the face of Jesus, something I had never before experienced. My inner knowing was that this indeed was going to be a life changing experience.
Interestingly enough, the next day just prior to our Holy Fire ignition, Joe and I climbed a group of lava rocks in the ocean, following behind William, our adventurous guide, to jump off into the ocean some 20 feet or so below us. Being a person who fears heights and has never been remotely brave in the physical realm, I was completely shocked that I had participated in this experience. I realized only later the the energy of Holy Fire was already working in my life to allow me to reach new heights (pun intended) and leave old fears behind. It was indeed all being taken care of.
The energy of Holy Fire is unlike anything I have experienced in my seven years of working with Reiki. Its energy is deeper; it feels intensely stronger and yet more refined in the hands, it works on a more wholistic level on a person, and it carries with it the feeling that all will be ok. I find that in talking to students of Reiki or others who are just learning that the Holy Fire energy speaks freely through me, even moving beyond any hesitancy on my part to explain it well enough, and going straight to the person's heart. I have the continuing desire to give Holy Fire Reiki to all those that I meet so that all are able to share in this feeling of peace and continual growth and purification.
I have noticed effects from treatments on others that has gone beyond anything experienced previously; more peacefulness, a greater sense of love, and, for some, very deep healing. For myself, I continue to experience the effects of Holy Fire Reiki as it continues to purify and bring out my good qualities as a human being. I am finding myself able to easily let go of aspects of my personality that keep me from being a messenger of peace and love. I have seen changes in my ability to be more lovingly patient, kind, less worried, less resentful about small things, and more loving and open with my heart. My humility has increased and my ego doesn't have quite such a hold on me.
Joe and I recommend Holy Fire Reiki training for everyone, whether you already have Reiki training or not. We are available to teach in and about Colorado and Pennsylvania where we have relatives and friends, and there are several terrific ICRT licensed teachers who are also trained in Holy Fire Reiki.
We would like to personally thank Holy Fire Reiki and William Rand for being the channel that brought Holy Fire Reiki to us in Hawaii and to the world. We hope to continue to grow and learn about this beautiful energy.
