Reiki or IET, Which One is for Me? Similarities and Differences of IET Healing or Integrated Energy Therapy vs Reiki:
There are many differences between Reiki and Integrated Energy Therapy (or IET healing for short), but there are a number of similarities, as well. For one, Reiki is more mainstream and, to some, easier to understand and learn. Integrated Energy Therapy brings energy healing to a deeply emotional level.
Read on to determine, which form of healing, Reiki or IET, resonates with you:
First off, I would be happy to introduce you to both, if you live in the area of Boulder, Colorado!
IET healing is much like Reiki, in that both are “spiritual”, relaxing and calming. Both are given by specially trained and attuned practitioners with only good intentions.
In both, the energy runs through the practitioners hands, into specific areas on the client. Both have a wonderful and profound effects.
Reiki uses “Universal Healing Energy” harvested through the practitioner into Chakras, to then transfer to the recipient person or healing animals in a Reiki session.
Integrated Energy Healing comes and goes from the “Angelic Heart Link” and through the practitioner’s hands also. In each, the client may feel heat, or swirling energy or nothing at all in the moment.
Reiki puts healing energy into the Chakra’s (7 major and 322 minor Chakras). Integrated Energy Healing has a specific 4 part hand position in each area.
Each area harbors “issue” in our “tissues” according to Stephen Thayer, Reiki Master and IET developer. In IET healing, the practitioner “draws out” the “issue” and replaces it with a specific word or intention of good.
Both are spiritual and emotional but IET healing seems to go more into an emotional realm, in experiences with my clients. The idea here is not to forget that something bad or traumatic happened, but rather lessen the impact on our bodies and our psyche.
In Reiki, through the use of symbols passed down from the ancient Tibetans “Cell Memory Technique” can also be done. This too will “draw out” deep seated issues, which are ready to come to the surface and when the client is ready to understand or deal with them.
It is important to note here, that all of us have things that bother us, eat away at us or hurt us. Each of us deals with things in our own way, on our own terms and in our own time.
Whether it’s Integrated Energy Therapy vs Reiki that has you wondering which is the best healing energy for you, it will certainly do you good to try out both, though it may take more than one session for you to understand which resonates with you or for a spiritual connection to begin.
I find that once you have researched and read books about Reiki, had several healing sessions, or have attended multiple Reiki shares, and the understanding deepens, each one becomes more and more meaningful on a deeper level and more aspects of your life will transform and bloom!
