Though Reiki is one of the most popular healing therapies, there are myths surrounding it. Many of us view reiki healing as some sort of non-scientific treatment. Some even go to the extent of seeing this as a magic and expect immediate results; that a reiki healer sends energy from one end and results would occur instantaneously at the other end. But this is not true, Reiki therapy is not only scientific like any other material sciences but also has dual properties of applying itself to healing of ailments of mankind, irrespective of physical, mental, emotional problems.
While studying in school, I’m sure many of us would have heard about Ernest Rutherford in Physics. He gave us the positive charged centric model of Atom by conducting an experiment of bombarding the gold foil by charged particles and found that the centre of the atom has a positive charge(as in Helium nucleus). But he failed to explain how the tiny negatively charged particles revolving around this positive centre remain in place. This was however later supplemented by Bohr, that electrons revolve in definite energy paths called orbits. They need an extra or additional amount of energy, in the form of Photons(packets of energy) if they have to cross from one energy level to another.
Now you may be thinking if this is a physics-Atomic lesson but its not. The fact i am trying to arrive at is- at micro level(micro cosmos or sukshma level) also energy follows a certain principle which is just extrapolated at the macro cosmos level. Whenever energy in any matter/being/organ gets disturbed, it leaves its original path and hence becomes unstable. On supplying the required amount of energy or channelizing the excess stability is again restored. Reiki, helps us in restoring this stability through channelizing the universal energy to flow through the attuned healer to the unstable one. This fact would be sufficient to disprove that Reiki is no form of hocus-pocus, abra ka dabra. Its purely energy science.
The other myth I would like to address is expectation about instant and miraculous results. So whoever is trying for a reiki treatment, if you cannot find results as you expected (within the time period initially reported by your reiki healer), there is no need to feel dejected or doubt the ability of your Reiki practitioner. I’m sure all of us would have doubly assured ourselves about our therapist, even before disclosing our problem to him/her. As any medical treatment has its pros and cons similarly reiki energy healing too has. As explained several factors are involved in this therapeutic process too. At any given point of time, the cosmos is filled with different forms of energy waves but not all are caught by the transmitters. That means to say, energy of a specific form is caught by a specific receiver only.

So while treating, though the universal source or the channel or the in between junctions may be sufficiently patent and manifest; sometimes the receiver itself may have blocked itself from receiving any form of energy. In such cases the treatment would delay as there is need to identify and diagnose the block, dissect the blockage and rectify the same. Whatsoever, Reiki therapy and healing is no magic but a logical form of remedy for many of our day to day problems.
Before concluding I would like to make this discussion a bit lighter by the note that “शक्ति ही शिवा का अस्तित्व हैं. और शिव ही सुन्दर हैं “ Energy may have different nomenclatures but the source is one and that One is beautiful, auspicious.
