RWA Modality FAQ

Modality Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: How is Reiki with Angels different from other forms of Reiki Therapy?
A: Many Reiki teachers address receiving angelic assistance.  Some teachers cover the concept of working with angles in detail and others do not.  The RWA workshops cover 50% Usui Reiki and 50% angelic healing techniques.  Our focus is less upon following a format with hand positions and more about following Divine guidance.  The RWA attunement process - the sacred ceremony to activate the ability to act as a conduit for healing energy - was received from Archangel Raphael.

Q: Why would someone study Reiki with Angels vs. another form of Reiki?
A: The only reason to study any healing modality is because you resonate with it.  Reiki with Angels is a spiritual healing modality.  Ellen recommends anyone considering studying RWA contemplate the choice in prayer or meditation.  Ellen is a big believer in asking God for a sign.

Q: I heard that Reiki with Angels is stronger/faster/better/higher vibration than other forms of Reiki?  Is it true?
A: No, it is not.  All Reiki systems work with the same Divine healing energy.  All people have and can connect with guardian angels.  The difference between one school and another is the teaching style and curriculum, and the intention and degree of Divine surrender of the instructor.

Q: There are other Reiki schools teaching Reiki Therapy and working with angels.  How do I decide which system to study?

A: You study the system that calls to you, the system that resonates with you.  If you cannot sense which system is ideal for you, ask God for a sign and wait until you receive it.

Q: I've met many people practicing this modality.  Is it a multi-level marketing business?
A: No, it is not.  Neither the practitioners nor teachers give part of their income to Ellen Mahloy.  Retaining the right to practice or teach the modality is determined by adhering to the RWA Ethical Standards of Practice and keeping up with changes via re-certification.
