Karuna Reiki® is introduced by William Lee Rand, Founder and director of International center for Reiki Training, in 1995. Karuna means "compassionate action" and so it is defined as “The Reiki of Compassion”. People who are already Usui Reiki masters are eligible for Karuna Reiki® Practitioner and Master level course. It is not a substitute to Usui or any other kind of Reiki, but it is simply an additional technique one can use to promote healing.
Working with various symbols to promote healing on all levels and chanting- toning while healing deepens the healing process. The chakras and auras of both the practitioner and client are also opened more completely allowing a wonderful vibrancy to take place within and around them. Those who have experienced this process report a feeling of becoming more awake, more alive and more completely healed.
It was found that in order for one to gain the full benefit of Karuna Reiki® one must be ready. This can happen only if one's energy system has first been conditioned through the use of the Reiki master energies. Once this conditioning has taken place, one's energy system can more easily adjust to the higher potentials available. In addition, the experience one gains as a Reiki master allows one to make better use of the new healing tools Karuna Reiki® provides. This is why it is taught only to those who are already Reiki masters.
Karuna Reiki® has two levels and eight symbols. Each of the eight symbols brings with it a different frequency and a different way of helping the healing process. Karuna Reiki® brings in healing energies that are noticeably stronger and able to more quickly heal a wider range of difficulties. Karuna is a Sanskrit word that means compassionate action and this is not an ordinary kind of compassion, but one that comes from an unbounded sea of love. This is the kind of compassion that when combined with wisdom can take one to enlightenment.
Through the use of Karuna Reiki®, we have the opportunity to expand our concept of reality. It is so easy to become focused on our daily lives in the third dimension and believe that is all there is; or think that is the only thing that is important. We can begin to understand the idea of inter-dimensional realities, or other planes of existence; if, for a moment, we forget everything we think we know about linear time and allow the possibility that time is actually a continuum.
As we work with Karuna Reiki® and other high frequency healing technologies, our vibration raises and we are able to tap into the crystal temples of Atlantis, and the rainbow crystalline energy of the Lemurian temples and chambers.
The energy the symbols accesses helps us deal with previous trauma and to heal on the cellular level. They help us work with the guides to heal karmic issues, and to strengthen the light around us so we attract to us stronger light from the guides, as well as friends, family and colleagues. The symbols help us look at parts of our personality that have been blocking us, have been causing us to doubt our guidance, and to accept, love, and heal those parts. The Karuna Reiki® energy is the energy of compassion in action, so it teaches us to have more compassion for others, but also for ourselves. It helps us harmonize the upper and lower chakras, so when we do discern the guidance and wisdom from the Divine, we can move it into the physical realm for manifestation.
