Q: Is Reiki different from other energy healing methods?
A: Yes and no. Yes, Reiki is a unique method – a specific method – of channeling life force energy towards an intention. No, because energy healing is an ancient practice that goes back thousands of years in many cultures. Energy healing itself is not unique. The methods are, however, unique ways of directing this beautiful healing energy. All of them work via intention at the core. But some of them use hand positions, some use movement, some use crystals, colors, scents, lights, symbols, and other tools for directing the energy towards vibrational healing.
Reiki is one way to easily and powerfully offer healing energy, directing it by intention towards a chosen goal. The methods of Reiki, and some might argue that the frequency of the Reiki energy itself, are unique to this modality.
I believe that life force energy has a wide range of frequencies – like radio signals do. Reiki may be one channel of this frequency. Other methods may tune in to different channels. But at it’s essential core, the life force energy is healing, positive energy. So whether you are playing the Reiki channel, the Quantum Touch channel, the Polarity channel, the Cranial-Sacral channel, the Shamanic channel, or others, you are working with parts or frequencies of the same basic energy. You might even play more than one at the same time if you are combining methods.
