"For Reiki to work the patient has to believe 100% that the treatment method is genuine and that it will work."
To be honest, I disagree with the above statement. I am a skeptic. I was attuned to Reiki because people kept asking me "Do you do Reiki?" I realized that whatever Reiki may or may not be, I was being nudged in its direction. And so I read a couple of books and found a teacher I trusted, one who could share his lineage, etc., and I was attuned.
But I was still skeptical. Until I started doing it on others. I couldn't even trust it was working on myself. After all, if I gave myself Reiki because of cramps or because I needed to feel more relaxed and later noticed that the cramps were gone or I was no longer tense was it really the Reiki or just my desire at work?
Then I gave Reiki to others and I started to believe just a little bit more and then a bit more and . . .
I'm still a skeptic. Ha! Bet you didn't see that coming! I'm a skeptic but I'm open to my experiences with Reiki and I know that I am growing through the experience. I also feel that the more I do it, the more I will believe. In the meantime, I'm here able, willing, and even eager to give Reiki. Maybe this is a way for me to raise that desperately needed $10,000.
Hmmmm . . .
