If People Don’t Believe In Reiki
Q… How does the Reiki therapist treat critical, doubting clients who don’t believe in holistic therapy? How can the therapist assure the client that Reiki or holistic therapies help to heal mentally, emotionally and physically?
And my answer 🙂
A… You can’t, so don’t even try!
I wouldn’t even waste my breath or Reiki energy… ha ha ha!
“A man convinced against his will, is of the same opinion still…”
Just know you will draw to you those people who need your help – and for all those doubting Thomas’s out there, well, just smile and walk away 🙂
Leave them thinking you know something they don’t… and you do 🙂
You will know when someone is ready to accept what you do and then you will be surprised by the magic that happens 🙂
But, unfortunately in life, your biggest doubters are often your own family and friends, so be prepared to branch out and make some new friends by perhaps joining a local Reiki share group.
Or start your own group to give you confidence and support 🙂
Q… If a client has pain in the knees, thighs, lower legs, feet and toes, or pain in the arms, fingers and upper back, which chakra or symbols help in healing these parts of the body because these body parts are not directly lying where the chakras are?
And my answer…
A… There are many more chakras centres than the 7 big ones or major ones, generally talked about.
Every single acupuncture point is also a mini chakra or energy vortex too!
When you give or share Reiki energy with someone, never mind what is apparently ‘wrong’ with them – and always remember, you don’t need to know a name for their condition either…
You simply blend your energy with theirs.
It’s all about bringing balance to an unbalanced energetic situation.
All you have to do is remain steadfast and true, calm and centred…
Mother nature will then do the rest by balancing herself.
Look at it like this – it’s as if someone is on tip-toe high heels then begins to wobble… and just the touch of a steadying hand will bring about a rebalancing, grounded and safe feeling again.
Once you steady the energy with your own, then the real healing takes place.
Again, you are simply the steadying influence… until the person brings internal balance and harmony into their lives, themselves.
To choose an appropriate symbol, simply use your intuition and go with the one that springs to mind. Or re-read all about the symbols and then pick the most appropriate one for the way you ‘feel’ the person is presenting.
Yes, it takes time to gain the experience and accumulate the knowledge of what certain illnesses might ‘mean on an emotional level’.
But trust your hands to guide you where to touch. Use them like antenna 🙂
And above all TRUST yourself and what you sense at that particular moment.
