Reiki Practitioner Certification

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through everyone and everything. If someone’s life force energy is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

While Reiki is not a religion, it is still important to live and act in a way that promotes harmony with others. Beth’s Reiki classes and sessions are faith based and promote loving acceptance of our authentic selves as well as others in order to heal our past, confidently embrace our present and future. Her Reiki classes offer the student an extensive understanding of the Reiki healing modality while embracing faith-based exploration of our own connection to the Divine.

The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”. A treatment feels like a peaceful, radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many have reported miraculous results.

Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.

Holy Fire® Reiki is a new form of Reiki that was introduced in 2014 by The International Center for Reiki Training (ICRT). It is both powerful and gentle and provides purification, healing, empowerment and guidance. It is included as part of Beth Whitley’s Usui Reiki Level I, II, III certification classes as well as the Karuna Reiki® certification training. 


Holy Fire® energy is noticeably more refined and comes from a higher level of consciousness. Some of the qualities students have experienced include:

  • Works continuously even when not thinking about it and spontaneously heals issues as they come up.
  • Always respects free will.
  • Heals deeply and quickly without distress.
  • Heals relationships and interactions with others.
  • Releases worry and replaces it with a sense of safety in a most pronounced way.
  • Spontaneously provides guidance that is palatable for every level of life experience.
  • Tends to develop all the personality traits that are healthy for a person to have such as love of self and others, kindness, patience, confidence, vitality, enthusiasm, optimism, trust, joy, peace and so forth.
  • Helps heal religious trauma.
  • One of the more wonderful effects is a feeling of being loved. This is a deep and refined feeling that is very nurturing.
  • Once received, it continues to develop itself to be more evolved and effective.
