Lightarian Reiki: Cultivate Your Spiritual Process

Lightarian Reiki is a high-vibrational system that combines the energy and information from Usui and Karuna Reiki.

What makes it unique is the focus on spiritual evolution through the Lightarian bands of light.

It’s also regarded as one of the purest vibrational energies of all Reiki systems.

In this article, you’ll get a chance to explore the elements that make up this system and what the Lightarian Institute program offers in terms of spiritual healing and growth.

What Is Lightarian Reiki

Lightarian Reiki is part of the Lightarian Institute in Portland, Oregon, United States of America, and was developed in 1997 as part of a more complex ascension program.

This society and the Lightarian Reiki system aim to help humanity evolve spiritually.

Its central role is to help place your mental, emotional, and spiritual layers into a state of healing and propel you toward accessing new consciousness levels.

Derived from Usui and similar to it in many regards, Lighterian Reiki holds a few key differences that seem to make it a more efficient spiritual practice.

Lightarian Reiki v.s. Usui Reiki

Lightarian Reiki enables you to connect to Ascendant Master Buddha. This is actually an enhancement of your practice because it helps you reach new levels of spiritual awareness.

It’s one of the reasons why the Usui Master/Teacher degree is required before receiving the Lightarian attunement.

A key difference that stands out is the complete absence of Reiki symbols. Intentionally, of course, this omission ‘forces’ the practitioner to focus more on developing a pure intention which is, in the end, a more effective way of channeling the universal life force energy.

Compared to the Usui Reiki system, Lightarian Reiki promotes simple cleansing methods only through the invocation of Master Buddha and the Lightarian waves of light.

Therefore, this is most likely the main distinction between Lightarian and Usui Reiki: the use of different frequencies, or “Vibrational Bands of Reiki,” within the source of universal life force energy.

What Are The Vibrational Bands of Reiki

A student can receive a total of 8 vibrational bands of Reiki.

  • The first one – is the Usui-based Reiki band. As the name suggests, it connects to the energy and information of the original system itself. Gaining access to this energy wave refreshes your initial connection with the Usui Reiki system while accelerating your mental and emotional healing process;
  • The second wave – is the Karuna Reiki Band which connects to the energy and information of the system created by master William Lee Rand. This further allows the practitioner to expand their ability to channel the universal life force energy and heal past traumas;
  • The third to eighth bands – are the Lightarian Reiki Bands. According to the description offered by the Lightarian Institute, this band brings the highest vibrational healing energies that Master Buddha can offer;

You receive the first two bands of light through an independent attunement, while the remaining six bands are distributed throughout the Lightarian Reiki levels.

How Many Levels Does Lightarian Reiki Have

There are a total of 6 Lightarian Reiki levels.

Levels 1-2 – are part of the initial attunement process while preparing the student for the levels that follow. They include basic Lightarian knowledge and provide the first link to the Ascendant Master Buddha. This stage will enable you to integrate the principles and wisdom you can then channel through this divine connection.

Levels 3-4 – have independent attunements. They help enhance the connection with the divine and Mother Earth’s energies, leading to an increase in your vibration.

Levels 5-6 – come together in one attunement and allow you to take a step further within the array of healing energies. Specifically, these 2 degrees will provide access to the following:

  • Higher vibrational energies, such as different healing facets of Buddhist energy waves;
  • A permanent connection with specific celestial energies and entities that contribute to your spiritual growth;
  • A clear path toward connecting to Ascendant Masters such as El Morya, Maitreya, and Saint Germain;

What Are The Benefits Of Practicing Lightarian Reiki

Like all types of Reiki, practicing Lightarian will stimulate your potential for better health, abundance, awareness, and spiritual transformation.

Yet, there are particularities to each system, and that’s why it’s a good idea to explore and choose an approach that suits you.

Here are some of the benefits of using Lightarian Reiki:

  • Activation of latent spiritual potentials, abilities, and gifts;
  • Each attunement will provide you with a large number of Reiki guides;
  • It will help improve your connection with the divine source of energy, trigger multiple moments of “awakening” and the expanding of consciousness;
  • By accessing the bands of light, you’ll also stimulate the universal energy flow through your body;
  • You’ll help activate your chakras, leading to a better understanding of the imbalances that require healing. The fields generated by your energy centers, as well as your subtle bodies will receive a thorough cleansing. Furthermore, the process will help you gain a healthy insight in regards to your spiritual potential;

What Does The Lightarian Reiki Attunement Involve And How To Get One

There are a few things to take into consideration before becoming attuned to Lightarian Reiki.

  1. It’s mandatory to have the Usui Reiki Master/Teacher level and practice it for at least 6 months;
  2. It’s recommended to have the Karuna Reiki attunement for levels 1 and 2. If you don’t, there’s an alternative to receive an attunement called “Buddhic Boost.” This acts as an energetic “replacement” that fills the vibrational gap between Usui and Lightarian Reiki;

Lightarian Reiki is a high-vibrational Reiki system that activates superior spiritual structures while enabling the student to accelerate the balancing of karmic debts.

If the student is not ready to receive this information, it may very well create mental, emotional, and energetic distortion.

That’s why having proper preparation and knowledge will help you raise your vibration and protection levels. It’s the best way to enjoy the benefits of Lightarian Reiki without risking an unpleasant experience.

The Lightarian Program

The Lightarian program offers various initiations to the branches of its society. These energy forms will enable the student to connect to Ascendant Masters and Archangels.

In my opinion, if you choose to complete these programs, you are clearly focused on spiritual growth and not just trying to find a relaxation method.

In short, these programs activate inert spiritual structures that can change the course of your life toward spiritual ascension.

NOTE: These programs complement Lightarian Reiki. Still, you can consider them separately or together with the system.

The Buddhic Track – relates to the bands of light and diversifies the original Reiki systems by adding new vibrational manifestations of the universal life force energy. The Buddhic Track makes Lightarian Reiki a highly potent form of spiritual ascension.

Angel Track and Angel Link Extensions – is an initiation platform that allows you to create energetic links with various Archangels. Raphael, Uriel, Michael, and Gabriel are just a few examples. Basically, the extension part further enables connections with even more Archangels. Gaining access to these entities will allow you to channel divine information and high vibrational energies into your daily life to manifest health and guidance.

Ascendant Master Track – includes the Ligharian Rays and the Lightarian Clearings.

The Lightarian Rays

This helps you establish connections with Ascendant Masters and their rays of healing. These rays act as interdimensional cords connecting to the Ascendant Masters and as healing waves of light that belong to the universal life force energy.

Empowerment Ray – connects to Ascension Master Maitreya and represents the starting point. It activates waves of energy that have the potential to accelerate the rise of your vibration;

Clearing Ray – connects to Ascendant Master El Morya, a more tranquil wave of light meant to dismantle harmful programs and patterns from your mental, emotional and energetic layers.

Activation Ray – connects to Ascendant Master Sananda and activates latent spiritual structures that will gradually help clear the connection with your Higher Self.

Healing Ray – connects to Ascendant Master Buddha and creates a state of healing within your physical, mental, emotional, and energetic layers;

Manifestation Ray – connects to Ascendant Master Saint Germain. This allows you to manifest prosperity and abundance on all levels for your highest good but it can also stimulate your material and spiritual potential.

The Lightarian Clearings

These Lightarian Reiki initiations should help you dissolve the limiting beliefs, negative programs, and unhealthy mental patterns that prevent you from finding balance and manifesting your spiritual potential.

The Lightarian Clearings are structured in a way that helps you:

  • Access high-vibrational energies;
  • Reach self-realization of your potential and imbalances;
  • Create a healthy connection with the divine consciousness;

Level 1: The Path Clearing – is designed to cleanse the “highway” that connects the superior and inferior chakras. This includes clearing the transpersonal chakras that sit above and below your physical body spectrum. The Path Clearing removes limiting programs and restrictive belief formations. As a result, pure energy will enter freely and cleanse your energetic structure.

Level 2: Birth Pattern Removal – according to our parents’ mental and emotional status, we are bound to manifest their patterns. However, by raising our consciousness, we become aware of what’s useful and less beneficial to our growth. Birth Pattern Removal helps you channel the necessary energy level to dismantle negative and residual energy and information associated with unwanted patterns.

Level 3: Template Clearing – addresses the Etheric Template subtle body. This layer balances the energy print of our organs. The Template Clearing initiation helps you become aware of your negative emotions that can potentially disrupt the healthy function of your physical organs. Furthermore, the process will help transform these damaging emotions into beneficial ones. Lastly, it will help cleanse your Etheric Template layer from residual energies;

Level 4: Attachment Removal – we all experience attachment in this life in one way or another. Most people fail to notice that there are conscious and subconscious attachments. Both can create unwanted patterns that repeat themselves unless we heal the mind, soul, and inner self. With the Attachment Removal initiation, you can sever the energetic cords that keep you connected to the people, events, or energies which slow down your spiritual evolution.

The Lightarian Institute states that:

“The transition from a life of “attachments” to one with “conscious connections” is the fundamental result of Lightarian Clearing work.”

Level 5: Lineage Clearing – the process of cleansing the subconscious residual or negative beliefs which are mostly in regard to ourselves. Among them you can find feelings of unworthiness or even abandonment. The Lineage Clearing initiation helps you heal these adverse belief structures. Eventually, you’ll help transform them into positive elements. This enables you to become more in tune with the Divine source and allows you to acknowledge your worth. In turn, this clears the path for the universal life force energy to flow into your body and daily life.

Level 6: Veil Removal – this is considered the most advanced level of the program. Firstly, it helps clear the conscious and subconscious from blockages, false beliefs, and energetic blockages. Secondly, it removes the veil of ignorance and prevents you from becoming tributary to the physical world’s social patterns. Subsequently, the Veil Removal dissolves residual patterns from the mind, soul, and inner self.

My Take On Lightarian Reiki

Among the 100+ Reiki systems that exist, Lightarian Reiki and the Lightarian Institute are one of a kind. As mentioned before, their sole purpose is to help propel humanity to a higher level of consciousness so that everyone can experience healing and prosperity on all levels.

It’s quite hard not to compare Lightarian with Shamballa Reiki because both represent ascension systems that go way beyond a “relaxation method.”

Personally, I find this system and its programs fascinating.

The Lightarian Institute’s approach to deep inner healing and self-realization seems to imply a good amount of work with the inner self, which leads to an awakening state of consciousness.

That in itself holds tremendous value because it helps align you with the core Reiki principles.

If you like this system but feel that it’s a big jump from Usui Reiki, consider learning about Angelic Reiki first.

  1. You blogs are amazing! Thank you for this as a reiki master and newly Karuna and Shamballa student, I had not know about some the reiki pathways that you speak about. I think it’s important for reiki to get out there in these times. Thank you for taking the time to write this information out!

    • I am honored that the offered information was useful to you!

      Thank you so much for your kind words. They are really motivating!

      Blessings to you!

  2. Dear Vlad,

    Just as Karuna Reiki is considered the second level of Lightarian Reiki, could Shamballa Reiki be considered the third or fourth level(s)?

    • Hi Brian.

      Well, first of all they are not exactly “levels” but waves of energy.
      Secondly, I do believe that the third and fourth waves are a bit different. What I mean is that they access different high-vibrational manifestations of the universal life force energy.
      Could these waves be similar to the manifested level of Shamnballa Reiki? Perhaps. I have not reached that level of Lightarian but I would assume they are a bit different even if both systems (Lightarian and Shamballa Reiki) are ascension spiritual systems.

      • Thanks for replying, Vlad. I’m just now seeing this message. I like your distinction between “levels” and “waves”. If it’s of any interest to you, my guides are describing Usui, Karuna, and Shamballa Reiki as essentially representing the first four waves of Lightarian Reiki (with Shamballa being the third and fourth waves), with the important distinction being that Usui, Karuna, and Shamballa Reiki are simply introducing symbols and meditations to Lightarian Reiki. You might be wondering why I asked, since it seems I already have my answer. The clarity and answer only came to me today.

        I really appreciate the effort you’ve invested in writing these articles on the varieties of Reiki available. As I’ve mainly attuned myself thus far, these articles have helped me understand and navigate this delta.

        • Hi Brian.

          You may have a point regarding the waves as each one has a more profound and higher vibrational level, accessing different manifestation of the universal life force energy. If what you say is true, than Lightarian Reiki might just be one of the best systems for ascension of perception over the astral word.
          Thank you for your kinds words and your guidance!

          • While I appreciate the symbolic nuances that Usui, Karuna, and Shamballa bring to the table, the simplicity of Lightarian Reiki appeals to me. After all, I would argue that symbols are simply intentions, and that’s all that the Lightarian system is based on. You don’t have to concern yourself with drawing each symbol in just the right way, and repeating it so many times, or organizing them in any particular order.

            Although I’ve attuned myself to Karuna, some Holy Fire, some Shamballa, and some Lightarian (among other energies), I just allow and trust that whatever needs to come through will flow through me. It’s a much more relaxed approach, and it works for me!

            Have you also worked with any light codes? There’s one in particular that has served me very well, and that’s the Love light code by Laura (see below). I don’t mean to advertise for her, it’s just the easiest way for me to share this particular code with you. I have that light code paired with Shamballa’s palm master symbol on my front door, and in my crystal ground grid.

            Have you delved into the Grand Master Reiki modality? If so, may I ask what you’ve found thus far?

          • Hi Brian.

            There’s so much to talk about.
            First of all – of course – stick with what resonates with you. The system, practice or faith that you find the most gracious for your soul and spirit.
            Still, don’t choose one over the other just because of “simplicity” over putting a bit more “effort”. Symbols are not just intentions. They are keys that unlock different manifestations of the universal life force energy. That’s why each symbol is used for different actions. Moreover, certain combinations of symbols can have specific outcomes and effects. They are keys to the unseen universe. Even so, one should not depend on them entirely. A fulfilled teacher should go beyond them – in a sense that the teacher’s vibration should reach a point where a teacher can access those manifestations without the need for symbols. Yet, their importance remains unchanged.

            Regarding the light codes – I’m not entirely sure if I perceive this concept the same way as you do (different meanings due to language barriers) but I’ve worked with Ascended Masters and high-vibrational forms of energy (also manifestations of the universal life force energy). This happened through he Master-Teacher level of Shamballa MDH Reiki. In fact, Shamballa has the section MDH (Multi-Dimensional Healing) which refers to this kind of light work – accessing Ascended Masters and high vibration forms of energy such as Mahatma, Shamballa, Christ Consciousness, etc.

            But Lightarian would be the next system I would like to thoroughly explore.

            Regarding the Grand Master Reiki system (not to be confused with the title of Grandmaster which is totally different) – I’ve been attuned to levels 5&6 and noticed how it facilitates a smoother connection with my higher self and, therefore with the divine consciousness.
