Raku Kei ReikiLineage:Usui-Hayashi-Takata-Ishikuro-Robertson. Origin:It is believed that Iris Ishikuro added much of what is taught in Raku Kei. It is known that Iris was a Johrei Fellowship Practitioner, as well as a Takata-trained Usui Reiki Master. Raku Kei is also sometimes referred to as `The way of the Fire Dragon`. Raku is the vertical flow of energy and Kei is the horizontal flow of energy in the body. Degrees:First and Second Degree: taught as one class; two attunements; teaches a different history about a man named Rolf Jensen who took Reiki from Dr. Usui, precepts, hand positions, disease and treatment with Reiki, uses Master Frequency plates (with antahkarana symbol inside) to switch the polarity of the body to left giving/right receiving (Robertson claims Takata and Ishikuro had and used these plates), three traditional symbols are taught, plus 1 additional symbol, a distance healing technique and three kanji hand positions (mudras). Third Degree is called Reiki Sensei: 1 attunement; requires that the student buy 1 Master Frequency plate; teaches deer exercises, attunements to all three levels of Reiki, plus a white light initiation, a breathing technique called ‘Breath of the Fire Dragon’, 2 additional symbols, the water ceremony, use of herbs and minerals, Reiki Master Spinal Therapy. Master/Teacher Degree is a called a Certified Reiki Sensei: It is required that the student have 3 large Master Frequency Plates before taking class. This Degree is for those students who want to be Center Certified it is basically a review of the Third Degree. Every student must show proficiency in the Reiki attunement procedures, know all the symbols and must be dedicated to healing the planet. The Class requires a contractual agreement with the American Reiki Master Association. If you have received the symbol for white light (also called the Johrei symbol) its` origin is in the Religion Johrei. This is the symbol for their GOD, followers of the religion enlarge it an put it on the wall over their alter. Look at it closely and you will notice that the upper half is the same as the Usui Master symbol. The original version of this symbol is hand written in Japanese Kanji in a stylized script, the other version (called the Johre symbol) is printed in Diane Stein`s ‘Essential Reiki’ is a stylized version and is not taught in Raku Kei Reiki; neither are Reiki symbols. See American Reiki Master Association to contact teachers of this branch of Reiki. There are also numerous Independent Reiki Masters who teach this tradition. TERA MAI And TERA MAI SEICHEM Lineage:Usui-Hayashi-Takata-Ishikuro-Robertson-Rick and Emma Ferguson-Margarette L. Shelton-Kathleen Ann Milner. Origin:Kathleen took the original Raku Kei Reiki system that she learned, changed the attunement process, left out some information, and added several symbols. Originally she taught this system as just plain Reiki which caused much confusion between Reiki practitioners. Now she teaches Tera-Mai® Seichem Reiki and Tera-Mai® which includes energy activation of Sakara, Angelic light and Sophi-el. Kathleen says that Reiki is very Earthy. Tera-Mai® Seichem is a combination of some Raku Kei, some Seichim, some from no other Reiki system and a lot of her own understandings. Her attunements are very different from Traditional Usui. She claims that a great being gave her the information to change the attunements and 3 new/old symbols. What we have found is that the energy of Tera-Mai® is indeed very earthy, mainly because of the symbols/attunement method she added. However, with the combination of Sakura, Angelic light, and Sophi-el the energy is much higher and takes on a golden quality. We feel that Traditional Usui is a much more subtle vibration (a higher frequency) than Tera Mai®. Degrees:First Degree: 1 initiation; teaches the history, precepts, hand positions. Second Degree: 1 initiation; teaches the 3 traditional symbols, 2 symbols from the great being and other symbols (names, meaning and usage), distance/absentee healing. Mastership: 1 initiation, a water ceremony, and a YOD initiation; teaches 1 traditional, 1 YOD and 1 symbol from the great being which are initiatory symbols, 2 sealing symbols, and other symbols, her attunement method to First, Second and Master Degrees, a gold, blue and rainbow ‘Breath of the Fire Dragon’ technique, the water ceremony and another initiation called the YOD initiation which is said to connect one with the energies of the Arc of the Covenant. Other symbols are given to Masters that have been channeled by her students. There are numerous Independent Reiki Masters who teach this tradition. Here is Kathleen`s webpage: Kathleen Ann Milner.

Karuna ReikiLineage:William Rand Origin:Here is a description of Karuna Reiki® by the founder, William Lee Rand: ‘I did not originally intend to create a new system of Reiki, but starting about 1989, I began being given non-Usui Reiki symbols which were claimed to have benefit. I filed these symbols away along with the attunement processes that were included with some of them and also begin experimenting with some of them. After a number of years, I had quite a collection and many of my students began asking me about these ‘additional symbols’ and wanting to know if they should use them. In the winter of 1993, I gathered together a number of my best students many of whom were spiritually sensitive, to experiment with the additional symbols, try them out and decide which were the most useful. We asked for guidance and through this process came up with a set of symbols that seemed to have the best energy. We also experimented with an attunement process to go with them. Later I was guided in the further development of the attunement process and this eventually evolved into a new system of Reiki. Throughout the process, I prayed for help from the Higher Power and asked that I be connected to a healing energy that would be of greater benefit. I did not channel any of these symbols myself. They came from other Reiki masters. One of these masters was Marcy Miller. In 1995, I was guided to more clearly define the system and to name it Karuna Reiki® which can be defined as the Reiki of Compassion… While some of the symbols in Karuna Reiki® are the same as those used by other schools and systems, because the attunements are different and the intention is different, the energies that are connected to Karuna Reiki® are unique to the system.’ Degrees:Both levels are taught only to Reiki Masters in one, 3 day class by the Center. 2 attunements, one for each level, 9 symbols (non-Usui), plus 1 traditional and 2 Tibetan symbols (names, meanings, usage) are given, Violet Breath, chanting, and meditation are included.
