Q1: What conditions can benefit from Angelic Reiki treatments?

A: Angelic Reiki is a safe, completely natural method of Angelic Healing which can address physical, emotional and mental imbalances and can provide healing with spiritual issues. Angelic Reiki aligns you with your higher self and allows the purest angelic healing energies to facilitate balance and promote wellbeing.

Angelic Reiki in-person and distant healing treatments are suitable for anyone, at any age, with any condition. Pregnant women can benefit from treatments. Angelic Reiki can be used alongside orthodox medicine and/or complementary therapies.

Benefits from receiving Angelic Reiki treatments and from learning Angelic Reiki for personal, spiritual and/or professional reasons are many and varied. No two treatments are the same; each provides precisely what best promotes optimum wellbeing for you, on all levels, at that time. And the healing continues for 3 to 4 weeks following the treatment.

Q2: Can anyone learn Angelic Reiki? What is the youngest age someone can learn?

A: Yes anyone can learn Angelic Reiki. The minimum recommended age is 14 provided they can fully engage in the 2½ day Level 1&2 workshop.

However, because of the power of Angelic Reiki attunements, we encourage anyone who is dependent - now or in the past - on alcohol, 'recreational' drugs, antidepressants etc to read this advisory note

No judgment is made regarding anyone’s current or past situation and decisions they made, since everyone chooses whatever seems the best way for them at the time. The info in the advisory note is offered from a compassionate as well as duty of care perspective since, knowing the power of Angelic Reiki in searching out anything that is out of balance within one's consciousness - physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually - and going right to underlying issues, it would be a disservice not to point out that the energy of an Angelic Reiki workshop could exacerbate alcohol and/or drug suppressed emotional issues.

People with these issues have found it really helpful to arrange Angelic Reiki healing treatments before commencing training since these assist in achieving the relevant level of balance.

Also, many people who have none of the issues described above feel drawn to experience the energy of an Angelic Reiki treatment before commencing training.

Whatever feels right, will be right, for each person.


Q3: To learn Angelic Reiki do I need first to learn Usui Reiki or any other healing method?

A: No, you do not need prior knowledge of any aspect of spirituality or of any other system of healing. If anyone advises to the contrary, they are misguided since Archangel Metatron's guidance through Kevin Core is that all that's necessary to learn Angelic Reiki is "a heart and mind open to receive" and that (although not easy) it  is actually beneficial to come to Angelic Reiki free of other previous influences or opinions! 

Angelic Reiki attracts those who are completely new to healing and spiritual development as well as those involved in 'traditional' and holistic/complementary healthcare of humans and animals. Therefore it is suitable for complete beginners as well as those experienced in practising & teaching other therapies as well as those seeking spiritual advancement.

As such, many who feel drawn to Angelic Reiki have already learned, practised and/or taught complementary therapies and devoted time to spiritual development - and may have been attuned to the very different vibrational energy of Usui Reiki.

Equally, ever increasing numbers of people (who have no idea why they are drawn to Angels and to Angelic Reiki and who may even find this attraction 'all a bit strange') just feel compelled to receive treatments and/or to learn Angelic Reiki. People from many different backgrounds attend Angelic Reiki courses: Housewives/husbands, Hairdressers, Vets, Nurses, Doctors, Complementary Health Practitioners, Lorry drivers, Secretaries, Solicitors, Students, Accountants, Teachers, Businessmen/women, Teenagers, 3rd Age-ers, people keen to advance personally and spiritually, etc. 

They use what they learn - first and foremost for their own personal healing and therapeutic change - and then integrate their expanded consciousness/heightened awareness as well as their angelic healing abilities into their personal lives and their line of work as appropriate. 

Angelic Reiki truly is a soul call and the start of an amazing life-changing journey - yet simplicity is what lies at the heart of this beautiful system of angelic healing.

Q4: Is Angelic Reiki the same as Angel Reiki?

 No it is not.

Q5: Can I learn/become attuned to Angelic Reiki distantly/via online tuition?/via Skype?  Is online certification available?

A: NO. As mentioned in the answer to Q11, in 2007 the founders of Angelic Reiki Kevin & Christine Core became concerned about reports that people were compromising the purity of Angelic Reiki in various ways, including distant 'teaching'/'attuning'. Addressing this, in their worldwide emails to all Master Teachers, they made clear that whatever was being offered in this way (or anything that dishonoured the true principles and practice) was not Angelic Reiki. 

As explained on this website, Angelic Reiki has to be taught in-person, honouring the spiritual principles, cosmic laws and ancient wisdom which underpin Archangel Metatron’s pure system of Angelic Reiki. Therefore this unique system of angelic healing and consciousness expansion is not taught one to one, nor via distant learning/remote attunements. Knowing how powerfully profound attunements, initiations and healings are during authentic Angelic Reiki workshops (and how the energies are increased exponentially by group size) the founders Kevin & Christine Core have stressed the importance of there needing to be at least 4 participants in every Angelic Reiki workshop. 

It is appreciated that in-person attendance at each of the levels of Angelic Reiki involves commitment on many levels, including financial; but anything really worth having . . .!

In our crazy 24/7 world, in all aspects of life, there can be too much emphasis on super-fast-track superficial 'success', potentially blinding one to what represents essential, invaluable, underpinning learning, understanding and development.

Q6: What does it mean that Angelic Reiki is ‘transformational’?

A: As Kevin Core said, "If you are drawn to Angelic Reiki, on some level you are ready to change". Angelic Reiki supports you in letting go of physical, genetic, emotional, mental and karmic imbalances throughout all time to allow healing of core issues and in embracing a happier more fulfilled life.

And as Christine Core says “Learning Angelic Reiki is a powerful experience. It places you in your own Spiritual Power, supports your own personal healing and spiritual journey, opens up gifts and spiritual talents and reveals your dharma and life’s purpose. It may totally change your life. It will change your DNA, your cells and molecules and activate your Lightbody. It will enable you to merge more intimately with The Angelic Kingdom of Light. You will learn much about yourself and learning Angelic Reiki may trigger lessons that your soul has chosen for resolution.”


Q7: How does Angelic Reiki differ from Usui Reiki?

A: Basically, Angelic Reiki is of a completely different vibrational energy and this is unmistakeable. It is a very fine, pure, high vibration from the Angelic Realms.  The term ‘high’ refers to dimensional resonance rather than hierarchical ranking.

Angelic Reiki treatments and attunements come direct from the Angelic Kingdom of Light, whereas Usui Reiki treatments and attunements come through the consciousness of the practitioner or teacher - whatever level of consciousness that may be.

We are each drawn - at times seemingly inexplicably - to the energy of whichever holistic/ complementary/spiritual healing modality seems most appropriate for us at different stages in our life.

As our vibrational frequency changes – as it must in line with the myriad influences upon us – our preferences change; we are then drawn to whichever healing/spiritual energy resonates most strongly with us at that time and which will be most beneficial for that stage of our level of awareness/state of being. Or perhaps not! . . . since, whilst increasing numbers of people continue to be attracted to natural medicine/complementary therapies etc, there are many who have no interest whatsoever in holistic approaches and spiritual advancement. They are where they need to be and their beliefs and life choices are respected.

There are no wrong decisions in this respect; whatever feels most appropriate is most appropriate at that time. For an in depth explanation by Kevin Core regarding how Angelic Reiki differs from Usui Reiki  Click here 

Q8: Is Angelic Reiki better than Usui Reiki?

No, Angelic Reiki is not 'better' than Usui Reiki or any other system of healing but it is of a noticeably different high vibrational energy. Spiritual masters since ancient times have taught that there are many dimensions, each with sub-dimensions, all coexisting and that our human perception of 'higher' and of 'higher being better' is misplaced. So Angelic Reiki is not better than Usui Reiki, it simply is what it is - as Archangel Metatron said: "the healing for our time" - exquisite, pure, divine love vibrational energy that interacts uniquely with each person to work at core level, facilitating whatever healing is necessary and promoting change in ways best suited to that person.

Q9: Can Angelic Reiki help with death and dying?

Yes, in many ways. Kevin Core's article "Death & Dying" on this website explains the importance of helping achieve a 'good death'. 

Q10: I want to learn Angelic Reiki but don’t know which teacher to choose.

A: Choosing the most appropriate person to teach you about, and attune you to, any healing/ spiritual modality is important not least because it is a very personal experience and has a long-lasting impact.

You might find it useful to click here and read the article entitled Guidance on Choosing the Angelic Reiki Teacher who is Right for You.


Q11: Why do some teachers say that they are "registered"? What does this mean?

A: It means that they have signed the International Angelic Reiki Code of Ethics/Practice & Charter outlining the essential standards for teaching Angelic Reiki and upholding the purity of the system.  An extensive list of Registered Teachers worldwide can be seen on Christine Core's website click here.

Teachers who have signed this Code of Ethics/Practice & Charter have been given a registered number and are authorised to use the term "Registered Angelic Reiki Teacher". Registration signifies that they uphold the purity of Angelic Reiki® by teaching the full, in-depth, system - ie Level 1&2 (17 to 19 hours); then Level 3&4 (17 to 19 hours); then Professional Practitioner Level (24 hours); then Master Teacher Level (17 to 19 hours) introduced in April 2010 in accordance with Kevin Core’s wish to protect the purity of the system and take account of regulation of complementary therapies in the UK and elsewhere.

You may like to know that, by 2007, the founders of Angelic Reiki had become concerned that the purity of Angelic Reiki was being compromised by teachers in a number of countries, including the UK, eg: Usui Reiki teachers altering the teaching to conform with their beliefs and the way they taught Usui Reiki; Teaching  one-to-one (when Angelic Reiki was never intended to be taught that way because of the exponential power of the energy, importance of the group experience and the teacher's duty of care responsibility);  Workshops containing less than 4 participants;  Tuition  being offered  via distant learning with  attunements over the internet (when the in-person learning experience is essential with Angelic Reiki);  Duration of training being shortened;  etc. 

In order to protect the purity of the system, in February 2007 Kevin & Christine Core circulated guidelines re standards for teaching Angelic Reiki to all teachers worldwide.  The International Charter was introduced subsequently. Then, in April 2010 (in accordance with Kevin's wishes), Christine Core introduced the more in-depth format for teaching Angelic Reiki ® with the Code of Ethics/Practice, and new official certificates and manuals.
Some UK teachers of Angelic Reiki chose not to sign the Charter and not to teach the full system of Angelic Reiki ® .   Non-registered teachers teach the old format (just Level 1&2 - beginner to practitioner in a weekend; then Level 3&4 - level 3 to master teacher level in a weekend) and issue certificates they have designed themselves or printed off via a template provided to them as part of their subscription to an association they have joined.  


Everything in life is about choice.

There are no wrong choices, only learning opportunities.

However, information assists in making sound decisions.

It is for you to decide who - for you - is the most appropriate person to teach you Angelic Reiki.

The term official is used to denote: certificates/manuals supplied via the founders of Angelic Reiki; and ‘organisations’/websites which promote the full system of 4 levels of training (Level 1&2;
then Level 3&4; then Professional Practitioner Level; then Master Teacher Level).


Q12: I’m interested to know how Angelic Reiki has developed.

A: Angelic Reiki was channelled to Kevin Core by Archangel Metatron during October 2002 and February 2003 in Yorkshire, England. The system was developed and taught by him and his partner Christine deHeera. Kevin and Christine moved to Luxor, Egypt in 2005 and they married in February 2006 in Yorkshire before returning to Luxor. They dedicated their lives to teaching Angelic Reiki (as well as Golden Heart Merkabah of Creation and New Shamballa) in many countries. Currently, people in 30+ countries practise and teach Angelic Reiki healing.

No system remains static (unless it stagnates) and Angelic Reiki has continued to develop over the years under the guidance of Kevin and Christine Core.

With expansion and development come challenges, as explained in the answer to Q8.

NB: Much more information about the development of Angelic Reiki is available in the book Angelic Reiki: The Healing for Our Time, ISBN-10: 145250329X ISBN-13: 978-1452503295. Written by Christine Core, guided by Kevin Core, it explains the birth, growth and purpose of Angelic Reiki and provides profound spiritual truths while giving readers insights into journeying on their spiritual path.


Q13: I want to learn Angelic Reiki but am confused. Some websites seem to indicate that it’s only necessary to do Level 1&2 and Level 3&4 in order to be able to teach Angelic Reiki; others state that you have to do Level 1&2; then Level 3&4; then Professional Practitioner Level; then Master Teacher Level. I’m confused!

A: The full, in-depth, format for teaching Angelic Reiki® with all of its potential is: Level 1&2 (17 to 19 hours); then Level 3&4 (17 to  19 hours); then Professional Practitioner Level (24 hours); then Master Teacher Level (17 to  19 hours), with official manuals and certificates signed by the founders  obtained via Christine Core awarded at each level.

Some teachers who do teach according to this full in-depth system have websites that have not yet been updated to reflect this more thorough, in-depth teaching format.

Other websites listing the old format (or their own version of 'Angelic Reiki teaching') belong to people who have not signed the International Charter covering standards for teaching Angelic Reiki®. Some may teach Level 1 separately to Level 2 and Level 3 separately to Level 4 etc; others may teach Level 1&2 (via 2½ days) then Level 3&4 (via 2 ½ days) or Level 1 to 4 (via 5 days). These teachers cannot supply the official international Angelic Reiki® manuals and certificates signed by the founders and obtained from Christine Core.


Q14: There seems to be more than one ‘official’ UK Angelic Reiki website. Can they all be official? 

A: Only is the official UK Angelic Reiki site, endorsed by Christine Core the co-founder of Angelic Reiki. After being hacked, it is currently under reconstruction to reflect accurately the number of Registered Angelic Reiki Practitioners and Teachers in the UK and to provide helpful information and guidance.  An extensive list of Registered Teachers worldwide can be seen on Christine Core's website click here

It is for anyone wishing to learn Angelic Reiki to decide whether or not they choose to be taught by Registered Angelic Reiki Teachers and to receive official Angelic Reiki manuals and certificates.

It is for each Teacher to decide whether or not they teach the full, more in-depth system of Angelic Reiki and whether they provide students with the official Angelic Reiki certificates and manuals. It is also for them to decide which websites (if any) they wish to use to promote their teaching/practice.

The term official is used to denote: certificates/manuals supplied via the founders of Angelic Reiki; and ‘organisations’/websites which promote the full system of 4 levels of training (Level 1&2;
then Level 3&4; then Professional Practitioner Level; then Master Teacher Level).


Q15: I have heard that some Angelic Reiki teachers issue certificates that are not the official internationally-recognised Angelic Reiki certificates. How can I tell if my certificate is genuine?

A: You can compare your certificate with the gallery, which shows examples of official Angelic Reiki Certificates signed by and issued via Kevin & Christine Core.  The first certificate in the gallery (bearing just Kevin Core's signature) was issued only until Kevin & Christine married in February 2006.  From 2006 onwards, certificates were signed by both Kevin and Christine as co-founders.

Kay Zega was privileged to learn Angelic Reiki with Kevin & Christine early in 2005 and, as a teacher of Angelic Reiki, possesses examples of each of the official certificates from that time onwards. Official Angelic Reiki certificates - signed by the founder(s) - like the system itself, have evolved over the years. Examples of these are provided  here :

This gallery of images shows each of the certificates that were awarded prior to introduction in April 2010 of the more in-depth structured format for teaching Angelic Reiki, together with the current internationally-recognised certificates.  

Some teachers issue ‘Angelic Reiki’ certificates they have created themselves. Also, some teachers in the UK and elsewhere have chosen not to embrace the more in-depth, structured format for teaching Angelic Reiki® that Christine Core introduced in April 2010 in accordance with Kevin Core’s wish to protect the purity of the system and take account of regulation of complementary therapies in the UK and elsewhere. These teachers teach the old format (just Level 1&2: beginner to practitioner in a weekend; then Level 3&4: level 3 to master teacher in a weekend) and issue certificates via a template provided to them as part of their subscription to a website.

It is for you to decide whether or not you wish to be awarded with an official Angelic Reiki certificate signed by the founders at the end of each Angelic Reiki course you do. For some people it does not matter whether or not the certificate they get at the end of a training course is an official certificate. For others this is important. 

Everything in life is about choice.
There are no ‘wrong’ choices. 
All experience moves us on, but information helps us make sound decisions.


Q16:   My Angelic Reiki manual  is different to the one my friend was given on his Angelic Reiki workshop. His manual is professionally printed, mine is in a ring binder. Also my certificate  looks completely different to his.  

A: You can check whether your certificate is an official Angelic Reiki certificate by comparing it with those shown in the gallery

If your friend has a professionally printed manual he will have been taught by a registered Angelic Reiki Teacher (see Q8) and he will have been awarded an official Angelic Reiki certificate signed by the founders. For an image of the official manuals see the bottom of each workshop page on this website.
