Holy Fire Reiki

Holy Fire Reiki is a new form of Reiki introduced by the International Center for Reiki Training. It is both powerful, gentle, and provides purification, healing, empowerment and guidance.  It is included as part of our Usui Reiki classes offered at the Reiki Center of Indiana by Connie Bunting, who was trained by William Lee Rand. 
Holy Fire energy is noticeably more refined and comes from a higher level of consciousness. Some of the qualities students have experienced consistently include:

These qualities are present in Reiki I and Reiki II and become more pronounced in the ART/Master class.

Holy Fire Definition

The use of the word holy in the name Holy Fire is not intended to have a religious meaning. The word holy has the 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.


The Holy Fire Reiki attunements are now called ignitions.  Since the first experiences with Holy Fire we have noted that the attunements for the Usui Master level is considerably different from what we have previously experienced. William Rand was guided that because of this, they need a new name. We have been told to call them ignitions. The attunements for the Healing Attunement, Reiki I, Reiki II and Reiki ART are done in a similar way as they were in the past with the teacher physically interacting with the student, but substituting the Holy Fire master symbol for the Tibetan symbols. Complete instructions are in the revised manuals.


Holy Fire has no lineage. Lineage as it is used with Reiki refers to the physical person who originally was a recipient of the information regarding the energy.  There was not one recipient for this energy.  Therefore, the lineage of Usui/Holy Fire Reiki Ryoho will remain with Usui Sensei.  We need to always indicate that the Holy Fire does not have a lineage.
