What is Karuna Reiki®?
   For many years, traditional “Usui” Reiki practitioners have been made aware of different energies and symbols during their sessions and meditations. By working together and by sharing information, they began to define what these energies were and how their corresponding symbols work. The International School of Reiki Training, led by William Rand, formalized the training and attunement process of these “new” symbols and was led to call it “Karuna Reiki®”. Karuna is the Sanskrit word for “compassionate action” and that is what this new style of Reiki healing is all about.
   While Usui Reiki activates the various energies through sight, sound, and motion, Karuna allows the practitioner to be a more active participant. These new symbols and energies are most often used in the same way as in traditional Usui Reiki, but in Karuna, sound vibrations are used to facilitate the removal of energetic blockages. It is a great way to break up stagnant energy. This is accomplished by empowering the voice to increase the strength of the various energy vibrations. Thus, toning and chanting becomes one of the most notable differences between the two styles.
   Clients have noticed an immediate difference between the two styles and find Karuna to be much more powerful. They report seeing much more color, feeling an increase in the energy coming from my hands, and the release of stagnant energy. Some who are more sensitive report that during periods of toning and/or chanting they sense energetic burdens being lifted out of their bodies leaving them much lighter than they felt before. They also feel as though they are surrounded by an abundance of light and experience a wonderful state of grace.
   I have incorporated the Karuna style into my sessions with virtually all of my clients, especially those who are working on deeply held issues they wish to heal. Their sessions have become much more intense, and at the same time they feel very grounded when it is complete. If you haven’t had a full Karuna Reiki® session yet, I strongly suggest that you schedule one and experience it for yourself.
