Reiki Vs Golden Light ~What’s The Difference?

The golden ray is a superhighway for golden source light energy to carry the light codes of the divine plan throughout the universe.

The golden ray births the pure love of the Creator into the universe through our heart centers, giving us the power (and responsibility!) to manifest all that is for our highest good and the highest good of all.

The only way we can manifest conditions that are for our highest good and the highest good of all is by channeling this golden source light into the world through the portal that sits in our heart centers. Our hearts contain the only doorway to eternal light and wisdom.

Our heart center is what is known in the higher realms as our ‘inner central sun. It’s a fractal of the original source of creation. It’s the zero point that connects us all, heart to heart. From the perspective of our heart we have access to the wisdom of the Creator.


There is a common misconception in much of the reiki community that healing energy, such as reiki, comes from outside ourselves and is drawn in through our crown chakra.

According to reiki energy is defined as below:

“Reiki energy comes from the Higher Power, which exists on a higher dimension than the physical world we are familiar with. When viewed clairvoyantly, Reiki energy appears to come down from above and to enter the top of the practitioner’s head after which if flows through the body and out the hands.”

If, by definition, reiki is drawn in through our crown chakra, then it is not coming directly from source.

Our true divine power is not found outside of ourselves. It does not enter our crown chakra. It is channeled through our heart centers from within. It comes through from our own soul.

Whilst there is no doubt that the collective intention of Reiki is benevolent, it’s important to understand that any energy coming from outside ourselves has inevitably been polluted in some way. It has collected the energies and belief systems of others, therefore losing its purity.

This perspective is not being shared to put Reiki down in any way. Without doubt there are many thousands of Reiki practitioners changing lives every day, and positively impacting the consciousness of this planet.

This information is being shared so that we can each take the next step to embody our true divine power.

Through the expansion and purification of our hearts we have the power to manifest a world beyond anything we can currently imagine. All we have to do is trust the path of our hearts to unfold the divine plan for our highest good.

We are on the verge of a giant leap in consciousness and we are being asked to adapt and evolve our way of perceiving energy as we rise into a purer state of being.

It’s time for us to embody our full magnificence. We each have an inner central sun that is connected to all the other suns in the universe. Collectively, these suns constitute the Great Central Sun, the Creator.

We have the power to manifest the infinite potential of the divine plan through our hearts. It is our destiny and the time for action is now.

Are you ready to expand into greater levels of happiness, love, joy and peace?

    Thank you for sharing insight, wisdom and the golden ray energy with us. There are many paths leading us to higher consciousness and ways of being in our world. The awakening and healing paths are truly mandatory in this age of blindness and self-destruction of our planet. May many more wake up and connect to the golden ray and other paths to liberation and life-affirming teachings and energies. Thank you for all you do to help uplift humanity and heal our planet.

    Thank you for the clarification Ahtayaa! Would the same hold true of Pranic healing as Reiki?
    Peace and blessings.

    I find this very interesting! Thirty-five years ago when I started studying metaphysics, healing, parapsychology, etc, it was taught that the Divine White Light entered into the crown chakra and radiated outward, or in healing, thru the hands. Since the Divine Light came straight thru our connection to the Higher Realms, it was believed to be pure and from God.

    What I find interesting is the changes in thoughts and teachings over the years. Thank you for the new perspective on differences between Gold Ray and Reiki. I do wonder about the difference between Reiki healing and other modalities, such as Pranic healing, other than touch vs no-touch. How does the actual healing (science, mechanics if you will) of the two differ? Doesn’t all healing come down to the same basic functionality, i.e. Divine Energy, channeled and directed through the healer? Is the difference between each in the method it is given?

    I believe that if we use our intention with pure love and light from our hearts all energy work comes from what ever you call your God. The Universe, source, God, ascended masters etc…. Healing comes from the inside and having loving pure intentions whatever we call it. First we heal ourselves before we can help others, confront our fears, practice forgiveness, especially the inner child, unconditional love towards all things, even those that do us wrong, and most importantly forgive ourselves.
    Fear holds us back and keeps the ego in tact, the ego loves it when we fear because it stops us from moving forward and that just where it wants us so it can control us.

    Namaste Brothers and Sisters.
    Blessings to you all. and may love and peace be in your hearts.
