CONCERNING A NEW (OR NOT-SO-NEW) THERAPEUTIC ENERGY...
Copyright © 2003 James Deacon
I thought I would pass on the following info concerning certain
similarities/differences between the recently re-discovered form
of ki therapy known as 'Whis-Ki', and good oldfashioned Rei-ki:
While Rei-Ki is often visualized as a golden 'liquid-light', filling
the body, Whis-Ki is a light amber liquid, filling a glass.
Rei-Ki provides total relaxation and oneness with all-that-is,
Whis-Ki also provides total relaxation and oneness with all-that-is.
Rei-Ki brings joy and contentment at all times; Whis-Ki brings
joy and contentment until it wears off. Then one wishes one had
imbibed Rei-Ki instead.
Rei-Ki comes in numerous 'styles' and 'flavours' - with some claiming
to be stronger than others; Whis-Ki comes in various brands and
flavours - with some most definitely stronger than others
Rei-Ki can be safely combined with various other practices; Whis-Ki
can be safely combined with various other practices - though driving
isn't one of them
Some claim that 'Japanese Rei-Ki' is purer than 'Western Rei-Ki';
Everyone knows Irish Whis-Ki is purer than Scottish Whis-Ki
Rei-Ki is sometimes translated as the 'Energy of Life'; Whis-Ki
translates as 'Water of Life'
Some folk claim Rei-Ki has links with Tibetan 'Bon'; Whis-Ki has
links with American Bour-bon
A Rei-Ki Practitioner doesn't deplete his own energy, but a Whis-Ki
'practitioner' tends to deplete his own finances
Rei-Ki is acquired via 'attunement' or Reiju. Whis-Ki is acquired
via the nearest 'bottle shop'.
I will be updating this list of similarities/differences from
time to time, based on further research and experimentation.
other things, I am planning a pilgrimage to numerous Whis-Ki related
sacred sites [ -in the vocabulary of the Whis-Ki art, referred
to as 'distilleries' ] and a 21-day mountaintop meditation - not
too dissimilar to that carried out by Usui-Sensei, except for
one slight difference:
Where Usui-Sensei is said to have gathered up 21 stones, throwing
one away each morning to help him count the passing days, I intend
gathering 21 cases of the aforementioned 'Water of Life' and will
be discarding 12 empty bottles each morning - providing the noise
of all that glass breaking as it bounces off the rocks doesn't
give me too much of a headache...
Oh and one last thing, many people have been asking about the
indulging in Whis-Ki practice, it is traditional to intone the
sacred 'good health' mantra before administering treatment.
those of you as yet unfamiliar with this practice, an English
transliteration of the single-word Gaelic mantra is as follows:
(pronounced 'schlaawn-cha' - or if used as Kotodama: 'hlaawn-ha'
The mantra should be intoned while raising the sacred vessel known
as the "Whis-Ki g'Lass" to the lips.
As with all mantras, the higher the number of repetitions, the
greater the benefit accrued...
