Reiki will not be solely in style due to its therapeutic success but additionally as a result of it's solely risk-free. Used by itself, it can not do any hurt. And that’s official: the Nationwide Occupational Requirements (NOS) for Reiki Follow within the UK state that ‘there aren't any recognized contra-indications to Reiki when used by itself’.1 The one aspect impact is religious improvement.
Nonetheless, many individuals discover this tough to just accept. Deep within the recesses of our thoughts we now have an ingrained concern that there would possibly nonetheless be exceptions and that simply this as soon as one thing will go flawed. After a lifetime of destructive conditioning, this isn’t shocking: with medical remedy, we're instructed that each treatment has negative effects and all good drugs tastes bitter. If we aren’t struggling, we don’t suppose it’s working. Within the ethical and non secular sphere, too, not less than a sure diploma of punishment is usually anticipated, even from God. So how can Reiki be with none negativity in any respect? Effectively, it simply is.
Sadly, there's a enormous want to emphasise this, as a result of individuals appear to be unaware of it. The web, for instance, is filled with disconcerting tales and unusual recommendation about Reiki. However all of the tales begin alongside the traces of ‘I heard of somebody who…’ or ‘I used to be instructed that this or that occurred…’ In the event you examine extra deeply, they transform rumour. Or just assumptions.
In fact, in standard phrases it will make sense to examine whether or not a sure remedy might have a destructive impact on a consumer with a pacemaker, or affected by bronchial asthma, epilepsy, diabetes or hypertension. For Reiki, although, this has all been examined. The truth is, many practitioners have said that they've discovered Reiki significantly useful for the circumstances simply listed.
If there had ever been a verifiable downside with using Reiki, certainly the NOS wouldn't have used the above wording. And, frankly, I'd have walked away from it. I practise Reiki as a result of I belief it utterly. Clearly, insurance coverage corporations do too: if the premium for public legal responsibility insurance coverage is an indicator of threat, it appears they take into account Reiki solely risk-free. The coverage for Reiki prices a fraction of these for a lot of different therapies.
The worst factor that may occur when giving Reiki is that the recipient doesn’t really feel something. If that is so (though it’s fairly uncommon in my expertise), don’t get too pissed off. If different individuals really feel one thing and this particular person doesn't, there should be a purpose for it. Possibly they aren’t able to face change. Possibly they're consciously or subconsciously resisting the remedy. Personally, I wouldn’t spend an excessive amount of time worrying about it. You've gotten supplied Reiki and that's all you are able to do.
