Hi! Welcome! Thank you for taking the time to get to know me and my work. My name is Thiago da Luz.

I am a Reiki Master, Healer and Teacher.

I am the founder of Holy Light Reiki - which is both a method of practicing Reiki and a lineage of Reiki in which Lord Jesus Christ is the Grand Master (meaning the source and authority of the energy anyone who practices this method works with).

Before developing Holy Light Reiki, I received training and hold the master degree of the following lineages of Reiki and Energy Healing: Usui/Tibetan; Karuna; Holy Fire; Christ Heart and Integrated Energy Therapy®. I have also been initiated into Kriya Yoga. 

I began my Reiki studies in 2008 and received my first Master degree in 2015. From that moment on until now, there has not been a single day that I have skipped self-practice. I also began working with Reiki professionally right away from my Master initiation. Since then, I have used it abundantly and consistently to heal others both in the setting of my Reiki Space (which I call Heart like the Sun), as well as through distance sessions. I have also been part of out-reach programs, clinical studies and volunteer work.

I absolutely love what I do! I always approach it with an attitude of sacredness as I consider it Holy Work.


In addition to healing through Reiki, teaching Reiki is also a big part of this Work for me. Serving in the capacity of Teacher to help students heal from within and grow in knowledge, empowerment and love for God is my great Joy! Reiki is both the daily practice that keeps me happy and healthy, as well as my full-time job. I absolutely love It!


I was born and raised in Brazil and I moved to the USA in 2005 to pursue a music career. Music is still a big part of my life, but before Reiki came along it was all I cared about and I could not conceive of myself doing anything else. And yet Reiki came along and changed everything!


I always say that Reiki chose me. This is because I never consciously sought to do what I do today. I believe it is God's plan for my life and that at the Soul level I did agree. In any case, the fact is that I am deeply grateful that Reiki came along and changed things around, because things changed for the better. The process, however, was not so easy as it entailed a great refurbishing of my life and really of myself.

I was first introduced to Reiki in 2008, when I lived in San Francisco. It was a very transformational time for me as I had previously been living in New York City, a place that can often prove very rough for energy sensitives like myself. I experienced the Bay Area (at that time) to be a lot lighter and as a weight of stress was lifted from me I, then in my twenties, was for the first time able to get more quiet and therefore look within myself and explore what I found. I started to experience a wave of spontaneous openings of my consciousness and I felt immensely drawn to esoterics, metaphysics and the Wisdom Teachings of all traditions. I applied and was admitted into a 3-year metaphysics program in the Bay Area and also undertook psychic training. Studying soon became a full time thing (I was blessed to be supported in this at the time). It was a time for downloading vast amounts of information - spirituality, religion, Yoga, Kabbalah, esoterics, all kinds of healing modalities... you name it and I had read at least one book on it. And yet somehow it all felt like I already knew all of it, I was just remembering those things.

I enjoyed all I was learning, but at this point it was all still seen by me (not by my Higher Self) as just a hobby. I was still very invested in my music dreams, which in parallel to all the studying I was managing make some happen. And so this was the background of my life in my late twenties: I had huge amounts of metaphysical/spiritual information (I say 'information' because real knowledge transcends the informational level and yet is a lot more real) and working hard to make my music goals happen. Then, the heavy storms hit and I was forced to both let go of both my music dreams and mere book learning. 

The detailed events of what followed then, which completely changed my life, are too dark, traumatic and personal to share here. And the healing period is also too holy and sacred mention here. So what I'll do is just go over a summary of the events in a less charged way. Here it goes:

A 7-year period of serious disease coupled with negative-spirit attacks happened in my family. I was positioned as the only person (in the physical) who could help. The situation presented me with the choice of: (1) walking away to continue to pursue my music dreams or (2) staying and fighting for whom I loved and was on the brink of losing. I stayed! It was not without great inner conflict, as the choice entailed leaving behind a long awaited release and tour plans with my music, which I had worked so hard for years to make happen. More than leaving an activity or job though, it entailed leaving an entire life, way of thinking, relationships and sense of identity. All that I knew (or thought I knew) was to be left behind in favor of serving as a channel for God to do greater works. This did not come with a happy angel from heaven telling me that God now wants me to do something else, but with the realization that up until that point I pretty much only focused on myself - but true love is self-sacrificial. This was shown to me through the immediate necessities and practicalities of my life. What could be more important than the work of saving another person's life, let alone someone you know and love. I did something different than what I was regularly doing before. I allowed God to do His thing through me. I allowed Him to purify and heal me (I'm still a work in progress). I also faced my deepest fears and pulled out the strong claws of false consciousness and desires from my mind and heart. I truly died! And I was reborn. And a healer had surfaced; one who eventually would become a Reiki Master.

In the darkest days of that "spiritual war" I was going through, I made a very powerful prayer. I say powerful because the need was so strong. Because I was alone (in the physical) not only dealing with what is conventionally understood as illness, but also the less understood and nasty issues of psychic attack and spirit attachments - which I had found no help for -  I said: "God, I understand I need to keep my mind attuned to positive thoughts and I need to vibrate positively. But I'm exhausted and I can't do it alone. Is there something or someone that can hold me and keep me in that positive place? If so, I say 'yes' to It"?

My prayer was very sincere - and a bit ironic, since I was asking God for God. Well, the thing is that until one is truly initiated through the direct experience of God's Spirit, one does not really know or feel God to be real - even if one believes in Him/Her/It. This is the difference between a belief-based spirituality and one rooted in the strong foundation of direct Self-experience.

After that prayer a few things started to happen. Everywhere I looked - a sticker on a car, a writing on a wall, a phrase in the middle of a book - I saw these words: "God is Real". I also started to feel a reconnection with my childhood hero, Jesus - whom I had somewhat pushed away by entertaining negative thoughts toward the Christian religion and putting Him in the mix. And finally, as if I had arrived at the point in time and space agreed upon by my Soul, I met my first Reiki Teacher - seeing a golden Light around her and the company of Angels, I knew (or remembered) I was to learn Reiki from her.


Reiki was quick to the task. It was the only thing that pulled me out from the depths of all that suffering. I was purified, healed and transformed. Eventually, in addition to my Soul-agreed first teacher, I met other Reiki Masters and learned from them as well. It became clear that Reiki was my path and mission. 

I became a Reiki Master in 2015 and from that point on there has not been a single day that I have not used Reiki in some way. 


I did not learn Reiki in a cozy spa or in an awesome tropical island retreat. No, I learned it on the battlefield. After that dark seven-year period passed - and, as life compensates, I did experience incredible otherworldly experiences with the Divine on the Light side of things - it's not like all my life just became a cruise through paradise. But I did become equipped with a stronger ability to remain in Divine Refuge (peace, love, benevolence,...) through thick and thin.


I stand for joy, positive thinking and zero-drama. But the fact is that I - like many humans - have experienced a wide range of sufferings. As there is always something to be gained from anything though, those sufferings enabled me to become more compassionate - and therefore more healing. To me compassion is one pillar of healing, as it is a quality of the Divine Heart.


Another pillar of healing is to think and see things through the Divine Mind, not an egoic mind. Faith in God has enabled me to go through darkness not seeing it, because I am carrying the Light that makes it vanish.


While that Light goes by many names, I use the name Reiki to refer to it. The practice of Reiki (it's more than just therapy and I practice it everyday) has been my practice in connecting, loving, experiencing and even becoming that Light. Reiki has truly saved my life!

There is absolutely nothing that Reiki cannot heal and I have seen, through my own channelings, real-life miracles happen.

This is because Reiki comes from God. It is God's Power, Love, Light, Peace and Healing Energy. As I see it, Reiki is the Holy Spirit - simply a Japanese word for It. It is not just any energy, but Divine Energy. 

Reiki can guide and heal our lives. It can be experienced through therapy sessions, but it can also be a lifestyle and a spiritual path if one chooses to welcome It in that way.

I invite you to contact me and book a session to experience the amazing gifts of Reiki.

Thank you for reading! Divine Love and Light to you!
