The Violet Fire Energy


This page gives information about the background to the Violet Fire and how it may be passed on to other people.








The first recorded channelling of the Violet Fire Energy was by Guy Ballard on the slopes of Mount Shasta in the 1930s. He advised that St.Germain had passed to him an initiation into the Violet Fire. Guy went on to found the ‘I AM’ spiritual path.


In more recent times, the American Energy Master Kathleen Milner also received a direct initiation into the Violet Fire.


I learned the Violet Fire energy when I learned Seichem. Kathleen Milner included the Violet Fire in her Seichem courses. There were only four pages about the Violet Fire in my Seichem manual. Because it is such a useful energy to work with, I teach it separately from Seichem.   





Reiki enjoyed a high reputation in the early years following its mass introduction into Western society. In recent years a number of factors have tarnished its reputation. Firstly, a number of people who have had spiritual experiences as a result of the doors that Reiki has opened for them have tried to link those experiences to Reiki and have created a multitude of variations on the traditional Reiki teaching system. Most of those experiences have nothing to do with Reiki itself but their promotion as a variation on the Reiki theme has caused confusion and has shifted the focus of what Reiki is really about. Secondly, whilst it is possible to initiate people to Reiki by distance, the widespread practice of paying somebody 20 dollars on eBay to receive some distance initiations, an e-mailed set of Reiki notes and a set of Reiki certificates without any real teaching interaction having taken place between teacher and student, with the teacher having no idea whether the student is competent to pass the initiations to other people, and with the student then going on to teach other people in the same way without having had much experience of practicing Reiki, has meant that possession of a Reiki teacher certificate cannot be relied upon as a good guide to a teacher’s experience or ability. There are a lot of Reiki teacher certificates around today that are barely worth the paper that they are printed on.


Whilst the Violet Fire energy has also attracted a mass following like Reiki has, it not suffered from the introduction of many variations on the theme. Some people are working with a similar energy with a similar vibration called the Silver Violet Fire.  I do not work with this but hear from reliable people that it is a genuine energy. Apart from this, I am not aware of any other variations.


The Violet Fire has, however, suffered from the eBay style approach of sending attunements by distance with virtually no teaching contact between initiator and initiate. If you are looking for a Violet Fire teacher, it is advisable to check whether a prospective teacher learned face to face with his / her teacher or whether it was a learning by distance situation. If you find that a prospective teacher learned the Violet Fire by distance, it can be useful to check how many other energies the teacher learned by distance. This is because there are now a lot of internet based teachers around who have had little or no face to face teaching with any teacher and who have obtained most of their certificates by distance. There could be issues of quality of understanding with some of these teachers.               





The Violet Fire lineage above me is as follows:

-    Kathleen Milner from the USA (www.kathleenmilner.com)

-    Sandra Straw from England (www.circleoflight.co.uk)


Kathleen Milner is the American Energy Master who has been given a number of healing energies from the Higher Beings so that she could introduce them to our world and teach them. These energies include Seichem, Sakara and Cahokia.


I was initiated into the Violet Fire here in London in 1997 as part of a Seichem course. Although the Violet Fire is a different energy to Seichem, Kathleen used to teach it within her Seichem courses.  


Kathleen created the Tera-Mai Association which is a trademarked name in the USA and which might be trademarked in other jurisdictions around the world. Kathleen uses the word Tera-Mai in front of the name of the energies that she works with to indicate that the energy has been passed on using her initiation methodology. Membership of the Tera-Mai Association is open to students who have been trained in any of Kathleen’s various energies and who commit to the Tera-Mai conditions of membership, namely that they will not receive initiations into any energies that are not part of the Tera-Mai series of energies and that they will follow the prescribed Tera-Mai methodology for passing the Tera-Mai energies on to other people. The Tera-Mai Association therefore ensures quality control amongst its membership so that the outside world can have confidence that they will receive the correct initiations and teachings from members.


Kathleen is of the opinion that if a Tera-Mai member receives initiations into energies other than the ones that she works with, the member will lose the Tera-Mai initiations and will not be able to work with the Tera-Mai energies correctly.


There is another page on my website about the Tera-Mai Association and related issues which may be found by clicking here. I am not eligible for membership of the Tera-Mai Association as I work with energies outside of the Tera-Mai series. This means that any person learning Tera-Mai energies with me will not be eligible for membership of the Tera-Mai Association. An existing bona fide member of the Tera-Mai Association will lose their eligibility for membership if they learn any Tera-Mai energy from me.        


Kathleen usually comes here to the European Union once or twice a year to teach.


Sandra was one of the teachers who did most to get Reiki out in the UK in the early days of Reiki here. She taught a number of different energies and I learned Reiki, Seichem, the Violet Fire and Raku-Kei with her. In recent years she has been organising spiritual trips around the world to the sacred sites so has not been here to do as much teaching as she used to. She is based in Devon but comes to London several times a year. 




How the Violet Fire Energy may be worked with

-    The Violet Fire energy is good to use in hands on healing situations for clients and for practitioners in the same way that people work with Reiki. It has a different energy vibration and different qualities to Reiki, containing male electric fire energy rather than Reiki’s female magnetic earth energy. The general consensus amongst healers is that it works in a transmutative way and that it works faster than Reiki. It is good for helping to release emotional stress and trauma although it can leave people feeling quite sad for a while after treatments. I have used it on myself when experiencing emotional shocks and can vouch for its effectiveness. It can also be used to clear blockages in the electrical pathways in the physical body.

-    The Violet Fire can be used for distance healing in a similar way to Reiki distance healing.

-    Kathleen also teaches a psychic surgery procedure for the Violet Fire which is very good at cutting through the energy cords between a client and other people or situations. I have lost count of the number of times I have done this with people who have come to see me as it is one of the regular techniques that I use. 




Teaching levels

The Violet Fire is taught in one level in a one day class.




My Violet Fire course

Although I am not eligible to be a member of the Tera-Mai Association, I pass the Violet Fire initiations following the Tera-Mai procedure as it was when I learned the Violet Fire.


The psychic surgery procedure referred to above involves calling upon Archangel Michael for assistance. After this procedure, Kathleen’s teaching guidance is to bring in good clean energy into the client’s energy field. I have been initiated into the energy of Archangel Michael and have found that it helps him with the psychic surgery process if he can anchor part of himself in me. I pass therefore the initiation into his energy (subject to his agreement) to people learning the Violet Fire with me. I also pass an initiation into what is known as The Living Light energy which can be used after the psychic surgery to bring in good cleaning energy. I first encountered the Living Light energy when learning Seichim and Sekhem with Helen Belot. Although she never initiated people into it, she did call it down prior to passing Seichim and Sekhem initiations. I encountered it again when learning the Blue Star Celestial Energy and was initiated into it then. It has a good all round electrical / magnetic, male / female and elemental (air, earth, fire, water) balance and is a good all round healing energy. I initiate people learning the Violet Fire into this energy so they may bring it in after the psychic surgery if they wish to do so. The Archangel Michael and Living Light initiations are undertaken separately to the Violet Fire initiations so do not affect the Violet Fire initiation.             


I teach how to pass the initiations into the Violet Fire as part of the course.




Cost of learning with me in person in London

The way that I work in London is that I do not have a predetermined forward schedule of training course dates. Instead, I usually wait for people to contact me about learning and arrange training dates around when we can get together. If I have nobody else wishing to learn a particular energy at the time of enquiry, I usually ask if the enquirer would be happy to wait for a couple of weeks in case anybody else turns up who would also like to learn that energy. If nobody else expresses interest in learning, I am happy to teach on a one to one basis.


The pricing policy for my Violet Fire courses reflects a balance between the need for me to earn my living and my wish to make learning affordable. The prices below are the cost per person to learn with me and are variable according to the size of the learning group. The prices are based upon a day rate charge for my time, the cost of materials such as manuals and CDs, venue hire and a contribution to my overheads. The larger the size of the group, the more people I can spread the cost of my time over so that the cost per person is reduced.


-    Teaching one person only – 165 Pounds

-    Teaching two people in a group – 125 Pounds

-    Teaching three people in a group – 125 Pounds

-    Teaching four people in a group – 105 Pounds

-    Teaching five people in a group – 95 Pounds

-    Teaching six people in a group – 95 Pounds



The price includes :

-    The cost of the training day

-    Full electronic version of my training manual on CD (written in Microsoft Word).

-    Hard copy print of everything in my training manual except for the sections about the physical human body.

-    Certification confirming that you are able to pass the Violet Fire initiations.

-    I will be available to respond to queries after the course has finished and as you start to have your own experiences with the Violet Fire.




Location for London area workshops

Workshop location will be subject to the availability of venues but will generally be in the Chiswick / Brentford / Hounslow / Heathrow / Slough / Maidenhead A4 / M4 corridor.  Where possible, workshops will be held close to public transport links for those who do not have a car.




Cost of learning with me in person away from London

-     In the UK I am available to teach the Violet Fire away from London. The charge for this will have to factor in the cost of travel, the cost of my time lost travelling if this is significant, and the cost of any accommodation expenses. I do not usually arrange courses myself away from London but If you are able to get a small group of students together and would be interested in learning from me, please contact me so that we can discuss.  If necessary, class sizes can be increased a bit if that helps with the overall price chargeable for student. 

-     I can also travel anywhere within the European Union to teach the Violet Fire where it is legal to do so. As the cost of air travel could be significant and would have to be reflected in the fees charged to students it might more appropriate for me to come to teach several energies over the course of a week or two rather than just the one. That way the cost of the air travel can be spread over more students and the average cost per student can be reduced.  Please contact me to discuss. 




Distance Learning

It is usually best if energies can be learned face to face with a teacher. However, sometimes, this is not possible. If you would like to learn the Violet Fire and do not have any Violet Fire teachers anywhere near you, it is possible to learn by distance. My training manuals are very detailed and were written with distance learning in mind. Please enquire for details.  




Additional costs that you might incur include:

-    The cost of purchasing crystals for use in healing grids which could cost between 30 and 50 UK Pounds depending upon size and quality.

-    The cost of acquiring antahkarana symbol cards. If you wish to buy some of the large cards in violet that I use, you may find details of how to do so in the Suppliers Section of my training manual. I purchase mine from William Rand’s Reiki Center in the USA and they are expensive to import. If I have spare sets here, you may buy a set from me at a cost of 24 UK Pounds which includes a plastic folder to protect the surfaces. Otherwise, you will receive some black and white copies of the symbols which I will have charged with the antahkarana energy and which you may use.  

-     If you wish for me to print out hard copy of the sections about the physical human body in my training manuals, there will be an additional charge of 20 UK Pounds for this.

-    The cost of a massage couch if you wish to practice the Violet Fire on a regular basis. A good quality new massage couch can cost anywhere between 150 to 300 Pounds.

-    If you intend to practice the Violet Fire publicly, you are likely to incur other expenses such as annual registration with the data protection authorities and healing related insurance. Depending upon what is needed, the annual costs with this could be around 100 Pounds or more.    




Discounts available:

-     A 15 Pound discount against any of my energy courses will be given for every person that you have introduced to me and who takes my Violet Fire course.

-     A discount will be available if you have a suitably sized room in your home or other venue which can accommodate a workshop and which avoids the need to pay hire venue fees.   




After the initiations

Students receive a big charge of the Violet Fire energy at the initiation. As with Reiki initiations, this will flow through the body for several days or weeks after the initiation. Any emotional, mental or physical stress that a student has been carrying is likely to start to work its way out after initiations. This can result in physical symptoms such as runny noses, headaches, aching in the limbs, and so on.  Additionally, the clearing of students’ minds of day to day matters can result in the mind feeling as if it is elsewhere for a few days after initiations and it might be difficult to concentrate on day to day matters. These symptoms and sensations will reduce after a while.  The clearing process tends to be a lot faster with the Violet Fire than with Reiki.  




Who is suitable to learn the Violet Fire

Those who have a genuine interest in trying to help other people through healing work and those who wish to start a new spiritual direction in life will be suitable to learn the Violet Fire.  It is advisable that people learning the Violet Fire will already be Reiki Masters. This is because it is much better to pace yourself and to work first with a lower frequency energy and get used to that before moving on to higher frequency energies.      


Kathleen Milner passes the Violet Fire only to people who are Seichem Masters. She advises that this is because students need enough fire energy to be able to handle the Violet Fire, the Seichem energy containing enough fire element energy for them. I have passed the Violet Fire energy to people who have only taken Reiki and they have been able to work with the Violet Fire in a completely satisfactory way. I do not understand Kathleen’s logic. The Violet Fire is an energy based in the element of fire so I do not see what the issue is with being able to channel fire element energy before the Violet Fire initiation.  




Who is not suitable to learn the Violet Fire

The Violet Fire practice requires practitioners to develop an appropriate relationship with the Violet Fire energy and with their clients. People who have a very strong sense of self or are not able to work in relationship with others or as team players or who have a need always to be in control are not likely to develop the best way of working with the Violet Fire as their behaviours might inhibit the flow of the Violet Fire.  All Violet Fire teachers have a responsibility to ensure that they teach only to people who will respect the Violet Fire energy which means that being a Violet Fire teacher is not primarily a business opportunity. Those whose main motivation to learn the Violet Fire is to earn money are not the right people to learn the Violet Fire. 




Airline crew and people based at Heathrow

Further to the comments above about the initiations, I would not recommend that airline crew or people at Heathrow with potentially hazardous jobs or who are responsible for the safety of others go back to work the day after receiving an initiation. This is because your concentration might be affected as the energy from the initiations works through you. Where possible, workshop dates can be flexed around work routines and rosters to avoid this.  It might be better to consider learning with me on a one to one basis if your working situation means that forward work rosters are changed regularly at short notice and that there is a risk that you will not be able to attend scheduled workshops.   





Here in the UK the Government is developing a system of Regulation for the Complementary and Alternative Medicine sector. Some therapies are the subject of Statutory Regulation whereas for others such as Reiki a system of voluntary self-regulation is being adopted. Please click here to go to the Regulation section of the Information Centre to read how it might affect you as an energy healer.




Lavender Flame energy

I learned an energy called the Lavender Flame energy from Suraya who channelled it in from Kwan Yin. In the Far East, Kwan Yin is known as the Bodhisattva of Compassion. The Lavender Flame energy is a good energy to work with, particularly for emotional and mental clearing. Suraya made a promise to Kwan Yin that she would not charge money to pass this energy on to other people. I try to follow Suraya’s promise by passing on a training manual and the initiation for the Lavender Flame free of charge to anybody who has completed any of my other training courses including Blue Star. As I have to earn my living like anybody else and usually have to charge for my time, I pass the initiation but do not teach. However, the training manual is self explanatory and anybody who has learned Blue Star should be able to work through the manual without any difficulty.
