How Does Reiki Work and Why Does It Work?

May 25, 2008
Reiki. Hmph. Another one of those new-agey, wacky alternative medicines that gullible people spend all their money on. I very seriously doubt it will work, don't you?

I'm sure if you've been around medicine you've heard statements like this. You may even have thought them. And in my younger days, I would have thought them too. Except for one small problem. Reiki does work for both healing as well as spiritual growth, and millions of people across the globe could testify to this.

So then the question becomes- as we sit atop our high horse in this, the age of reason- how does Reiki work? Or more to the point, why does it work. By all accounts it shouldn't work. It doesn't use any drugs. You don't have to cut into anything or anyone. 'Normal' doctors don't use it. I can't see it with my eyes or hear it with my ears. So, sorry lady. I don't believe it. It just doesn't work.

Except that it does.

Let's look at Reiki a bit here to see if we can figure this out. In a Reiki session you lay your hands on someone and use your life energy to help someone else's life energy to flow. Now that's just downright crazy. Anyone would say it, right. Now Reiki originated in Japan a long time ago. This is all the more reason to be skeptical. I mean no-one knew anything about medicine back then. So how could there be any validity to this stuff at all?

Ok all of you scientists, let's talk turkey. It now appears that science itself is coming up with an answer to the question 'How does Reiki work?' These scientists from the pioneer field of high-energy physics are throwing about terms like "subatomic matter', 'unpolarized' and 'vortex theory.' As we hear all of this we get a strong feeling that there may be some kind of energy flowing in the human body. And that in fact this energy may be the very basis of life. But it is way too small for our meager instruments to detect. As we ponder this we have to question, so now who is living in the middle ages of medicine?

Now this energy can't be seen, but it can certainly be felt. If you are being practiced on, for instance, you will often feel a spreading warmth, or even cold sensation in the area that is being worked on. On the other hand, if you are the practitioner, you will often feel a pins and needles kind of tingling warm sensation.

Now if we take a better look, we may find that Reiki has a lot more credibility than we realize. For instance do you remember the bible and the laying on of hands? It sounds like Reiki to me. How about you? It makes you wonder if maybe the people in the days of yore were not so simple-minded as we thought. Perhaps , when you look at it, they were actually quite smart and enlightened. For instance, they knew enough to figure out- if it works, don't worry about why or how- just use it. Not a bad thought for the Age of Reason to ponder, is it?
