What is the difference between giving Metta, Giving Reiki and Healing the Pranic way?

As explained elsewhere, Metta is all about strenghtening the volition of sharing one's merits with every being. This is accomplished by thinking wholesome and loving thoughts about oneself and other beings. The meditator imagines "sending" loving thoughts to everyone. There is no need to connect any supernatural aspect to this practice, and that is where, I think, Metta differs from other ENERGY-BASED practices like Reiki. Of course, that doesn't mean that one cannot have a wholesome volition while giving Reiki. But, usually the intentions of energy-based healing practitioners are not the same as those required for the practice of Metta.

Nicely put Vivek. The key is to realise Metta practice changes YOU and not anything or anyone else in the world. Of course ... YOU changing changes things for everyone around you but there is no magick-thinking involved.
