Comparisons of Reiki and Johrei

Two healing energies emerged in Japan during the first quarter of the twentieth century: Reiki and Johrei. Both are healing energies, but the two are completely different in lineage, frequency, purpose, use, and method of training. Although the two energies are quite different, they are, nevertheless, complementary in their action. Each has its appropriate applications; each is a powerful form of energy healing.

In terms of frequency, Johrei is closer to the intensity of earth energies than Reiki. When measured on the Aura Video Imager, Johrei appears green in the aura, while Traditional Reiki emerges as indigo blue and purple. Reiki is used widely in hospitals and by millions of practitioners worldwide. Members of the Johrei Fellowship provide Johrei primarily in their Centers, although practitioners can do Johrei anywhere needed. They are noted for their successful work with bomb victims at Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and Johrei has been used in Japan, the United States, Brazil, and Thailand for cancer, tumors, burns, injuries, infections, and toxic poisoning in humans and animals. Those involved in Earth Healing at the StoneWind Institute also recognize its application as a potent transmuting energy for a wide range of toxic conditions on the planet.

Characteristics of Reiki

(1) While practitioners see the Reiki energy as having the properties of a spiritual energy, Reiki as a system of healing is not a religion, has no churches, religious-like ceremonies, or prayer services. It in no way infringes on a person's personal belief system.

(2) Reiki is an "attuned energy," i.e., access to Reiki is opened in the student by energy activation methods known as "attunements" performed by an appropriately trained Reiki Master. Once training is compete, the ability to channel Reiki is a permanent empowerment.

(3) Reiki is not directed by intent; rather, Reiki, the universal life energy, is drawn through the practitioner by the recipient according to the needs of the recipient's body. The practitioner is the conduit only.

(4) Reiki is used in hands-on treatments to balance physical as well as emotional health; it can also be offered at a distance according to specific Reiki techniques.

(5) Reiki is designed to work on physical healing first, then on mental emotional issues as they are reflected in the physical body.

(6) Reiki is often described as a feminine or "water" energy.

(7) In terms of frequency, Reiki registers with a very high vibration. Measured on the Aura Imager, Reiki (in the strict Traditional Lineages) appears as a deep indigo blue and purple.
Charcteristics of Johrei

(1) Johrei is based on Japanese spiritual beliefs presented through a religious organization, with centers, ministers, a hierarchy, and references to God in its training and practices. Johrei practitioners also implicitly and explicitly accept the belief in reincarnation.

(2) Johrei is an energy of intent that is anchored and activated by a "Focal Point" worn about the Johrei practitioner's neck and obtained after training with a minister of the Johrei Fellowship.

(3) As a non-attuned energy, the wearing of the Focal Point is required for a practitioner to channel the energy. With the Focal Point on, Johrei moves through the practitioner's upheld hand during a Johrei session rather than through the body. The practitioner has the intent to channel Johrei.

(4) Johrei is beamed into the aura of a seated recipient with the goal of burning away "spiritual clouds" or energetic blockages. It is rarely used for distance treatments, although distance Johrei is possible.

(5) Johrei addresses spiritual energetic issues in the aura which in turn influences physical health.

(6) Johrei is often described as a masculine or "fire" energy.

(7) In terms of frequency, Johrei is closer to the intensity of earth energies than Reiki. Measured on the Aura Imager, Johrei appears green in the aura.
