Will Reiki work if someone doesn’t believe in it?

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.

    Thanks for your comment which answers my research. I`ve a Brother who is younger than me and has tennis elbow. I`ve not seen him for years and he`s come to visit. He`s a very scientific person and is sceptical of Healing Hands. Trying to relay Reiki attunement to him was difficult as an experience as he`s never understood the visions I see. The point of looking for this site was to look for anothers opinion on why it sometimes doesn`t work. I`ve a daughter who really has bad pain, in no way is she scientific. But Healing just doesn`t work. There is, I believe, a situation arising where some people just don`t believe it will work and prefer to carry the pain.

    I`m level 2 and beginning to find that the more I find out, the less I realise I know. But, we all have to proceed and some of the personal results are very encouraging. As many have said, we never stop learning.
