I am going to have to disagree with you, I believe that subconscious intent is possible - but it is my belief and not something I think can be proven either way.

The dictionary definition of intent is at odds with your understanding of the word, but I will agree to disagree.

Quote
I have found that I do not have to be a passive conduit for the energy, but can be actively pulling it through faster.  I am speaking as a Reiki master, not level 1 or 2 in this.

Yes...you can actively pull it through faster using Cho Ku Rei.  A symbol you do not learn until level 2.  I am clarifying this point for the person who admitted they needed to learn more about Reiki.  By acting as a conduit you do not push anything.  The point of a conduit is to let it pass through you.  You cannot push more without using Cho Ku Rei, unless you are also contributing your own energy.  If more energy flows through in some instances, I personally have found it's when I put my hand on a place that needs the energy.  In that case I'm still a conduit, the place is sucking energy from me, not the other way around.

Since I was responding to someone who was discussing energy work, I didn't feel it was necessary to clarify.  

You were responding to someone whose next post clearly demonstrates they don't know very much about Reiki.  In that case you really should clarify.  That's part of being a responsible representative of an energy system you decided to teach someone about.

Reiki is just a form of energy work.  What I found it really good for is that the attunements (as they call them) do really open the channels that carry energy wider.  but, yes, you do need to apply healing energy at the right time, and not all people are helped by it.  There is at least one person on the board (Heartshadow?) who finds it very uncomfortable and jarring. 

The most important thing about Reiki for an energy worker is that you use energy from outside yourself.  This is very important because you don't deplete your own energy and can 'refill' as it were.  The healing is just intent added to the energy.

Yep, that's me.

Though it's not ALL Reiki - it depends on the practitioner and the problem.  That said, I avoid Reiki for my carpal tunnel like the plague, because whatever the energy thinks of as "healing" usually equates to "hurting like hell".

And that's something that a Reiki practitioner is supposed to warn you about - it is not unusual for it to hurt worse before it feels better.  Though I don't know why (I hate not knowing why on these things!).  And even then, it may not be the right thing for you for that situation.  My daughter hates Reiki with a passion - and she's a massage therapist and does energy work (since she was a child).  She admits it works - I healed a sinus infection for her - but she says it feels all fizzy buzzy and she hates the feeling.  It was like her head was full of bees.  And mind you, this was mommy doing it too!

When my friend had me test my energy, to find how strong it was, it hurt me. As in, it felt like a flow of needles pressing against my fingers...i'm not sure how to describe it correctly. Anyway, she said it exudes from me and I was just wondering if anyone would explain that to me...because we were wondering what it would do as far as divination and healing would go.

Well, if you feel that you have too much energy, just release it mentally. Give it away to friends who need it, animals, the earth. The best way to get rid of excess energy is to earth it. Imaging it flowing down your feel into the earth. Smiley

I am certainly no energy worker, but I believe they call this "grounding." IIRC from my brief romance with magic and energy working, it is one of the first techniques you learn and is very important before almost any spell work or reiki or whatever you are excercising. No big deal, I am just big on language and finding the right word for something is usually fairly important to me. Please correct me if I am wrong!

It is usually done as part of GCP-Grounding, Cleansing and Protection. Personally, I had to learn the Protection part first as that was the thing that I had most trouble with. There is no point in cleansing yourself if you leave yourself wide open for more crap to get in. It's the same with Grounding-there is no point doing it if you can't or don't do the other two as well. In my Craft you have to do it all together, or you may as well not bother.

Ah, I see! Makes perfect sense to me. Of course, as I said, I hae limited experience in such things. The closest I have really ever come to energy work is astral travel and I wouldn't call that energy work on any level, lol. Although it does take a certain type of energy to pull off with good results, one has to be in the right mood, not about to fall asleep, yadda yadda yadda.

Yes to grounding before everything except Reiki.  I was not taught to ground with Reiki (and I am a Reiki Master), and none of the books I have read mentioned it.  I do anyway just because I try to always stay grounded and shielded.  I tie those 2 together because I am enough of an empath to need the distancing from most people's emotions.  Shield to keep them at a distance, ground to be able to ground them.

Ah! I see, makes sense. Very prudent I would say.

There is a major trend with Reiki to make it seem as mainstream as possible.  Some people teach it in a very christian oriented way, for example.  And a lot of Reiki practitioners, and many of those who receive it, get very upset at Reiki being tied to energy work, magic in any form, or any kind of pagan belief system.  Because of this, telling someone to ground and center before doing Reiki is supposedly a no no.  Silly, but there you are.
