Q: Will Reiki work if someone doesn’t believe in it?
A: Reiki always works. But if someone is absolutely closed to the idea that Reiki could be real, either that person won’t feel it, or it won’t work for that person. That’s because a person’s healing is up to him or her. As Reiki practitioners, we are “healing facilitators.” We offer the energy for the person to receive and absorb where it’s needed. But the person will only receive the energy he or she is ready to receive. So that’s the most important part of this – the free will factor.
A person who is not willing to accept the reality of Reiki also won’t be ready to receive the healing that the energy could provide. Furthermore, even if on some level the person did receive the energy, he or she would never acknowledge that it was the Reiki that helped. He or she just wouldn’t be able to compromise on that ingrained belief that Reiki is not real.
My advice: Offer, but don’t waste too much energy trying to “prove” Reiki is real to someone who is determined to believe that it isn’t. Instead, spend time helping those who want Reiki, or are willing to try it. There are plenty.
