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. As part of its ongoing commitment to lineage, to healing, and to earth healing in the eclectic mode.
In addition to quite different origins, there are many other distinguishing differences between Johrei and Reiki. Reiki is an attuned energy opened in the student by an appropriately trained Reiki Teacher. Reiki energy moves through the body and the chakras of the Reiki practitioner and out the hands to whomever the practitioner offers the energy.
Johrei, on the other hand is opened in the student by an appropriately trained Johrei Teacher. It moves through the practitioner’s upheld hand during a Johrei session and is an energy of intent anchored and activated by a Focal Point worn about the Johrei practitioner’s neck and obtained after a period of training with a Johrei Teacher.
While Reiki is used in hands-on treatments and is intended to be placed in the body of the client with the intent of balancing physical as well as mental and emotional health, Johrei is beamed into the aura of a seated recipient with the goal of burning away “spiritual clouds” or energetic blockages. Reiki is designed to work on physical healing as well as on mental emotional issues; Johrei addresses spiritual energetic issues in the aura which in turn influences physical health. Although an oversimplification of two powerful healing energies, it is often said that Reiki is the feminine or “water” energy, Johrei the masculine or “fire” energy. Without doubt, the two energies, while quite different, are complementary in their action. Each has its appropriate applications; each is a powerful form of energy healing, even complimenting each other.
Reiki is more often applied lying on a massage table, Johrei treatments take less time and is given to a client sitting.
Reiki is not a religion, and Johrei is not a religion. It is easy to attain the Practitioner level in both. Johrei practitioners are taught over one day as is Reiki, but with two follow up sessions until you receive your certificate and Focal point.
It is harder to become Johrei Master/Teacher, it requires you to undergo much more training and know and understand Japanese spiritual beliefs as represented in the teachings of Meishu-sama (Mokichi Okada), the man to whom Johrei was given.
The training is not offensive nor overly challenging to other beliefs, and many of the concepts of chakras, energetic blockages in the aura, and the origins of illness in emotional and spiritual issues will be totally familiar to Reiki practitioners trained in traditional Reiki lineages. Johrei practitioners, like those in Reiki, find that using Johrei energy in no way interferes with their beliefs in whatever traditional religion they follow. To the contrary, as with Reiki, Johrei provides a deeper sense of connection to the universal energies of Source.
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. Members of the Johrei Fellowship are noted for their successful work with bomb victims at Hiroshima, and Johrei has been used in Japan, the United States, Brazil, and Thailand with success against cancer, tumors, burns, injuries, infections, and toxic poisoning in humans and animals.

What is Quan Yin Johrei?
Originating in Japan from the teachings of Mokichi Okada around the same time as Reiki, Johrei is referred to as the medical art of Japan. There is current ongoing research in the use of Johrei for pathologies as diverse as heart conditions, cancer, and HIV. When received on a regular basis, Johrei promotes the natural healing processes, helping the recipient to restore physical health, mental clarity, and emotional wellness. It is non-invasive and there is no physical contact. Johrei is given sitting, in person, over the phone, or long distance. It is a Universal Divine Energy available to all.
