Science, proof and energy healing

According to Wikipedia, no scientific study has found proof that Reiki or other such healing method works.

 

Why do you think that is? I've heard @Phil say that "Reiki always works". Why is there no scientific proof? Why is that it's not accepted as legitimate method?

 

Is there blindspots to science and empirical study?

 

I've tried Reiki and Angel Therapy and have found in personal experience that there is something there. Just interested in what you guys think. 🤔

I know you’re already familiar with Reiki but to offer some kind of explanation…
 

Reiki means ray as in light and key as in love is the key. In other words, consciousness, which is of course infinite and therein unmeasurable. ‘Science’ by and large is searching for, while believing it is already studying, working with and measuring, “matter”… in spite of the double slit experiment, which was done in 1802. 
 

‘Science’ for the most part it seems does not understand that there is no objective or subjective experience.  ’Science’ is not per se to blame or at fault, as oddly even many teachers of Nonduality remain ignorant about this and thus misinformation abounds.
 

The relevance is scientifically speaking Reiki would have to be measurable to constitute the statement “it works”. To a large degree it would also have to be salable and scalable for there to be any interest in funding.  Yet, ‘science’ operates almost exclusively on dualistic beliefs.  So if you googled “scientific proof Reiki works“, there would also be scientific literature to that regard.  
 

Reiki works with and as subtle vibrational apparent manifestation, or “energy” (light, love, infinite consciousness). This usually begins with the transfer of subtle energy via the palms, and then directly as infinite mind with no need for “palms”, nor the paradigm of spacetime. In this way, Reiki is  fundamental or rudimentary.
 

Therefore Reiki is not a substitute for medications, surgeries, or other gross medical treatments.  Instead, Reiki works with, for and as infinite consciousness most intimately with respect to discord; stress, tension, pain & emotional contraction…therein accelerating physiological  healing by aligning chakras and ultimately the entire aura. 
 

As far as if Reiki ‘works’, as you found, one must go and see. There is also momentum and sharing to consider in the sense the more Reiki is practiced the more fluent, abundant, and effective it is actually recognized to be.
 

In terms of apparent manifestation, the only true measurement of the effectiveness of Reiki sessions or treatments would be in measuring all of the ailments, disease and suffering which did not manifest due to, Reiki. Which, of course cannot actually be measured anymore than the mass, quality of life, or the distance from Me to ye.


As far as not being recognized as a legitimate method, there are actually millions of practitioners and thousands of doctors and hospitals implementing not only Reiki sessions but Reiki classes as well. It’s a good start.

The non-scientific therapies such as Reiki (and I think much psychotherapy falls under this bracket) are experiential as you and Phil suggest. Whereas Science demands some physical measurements to satisfy its approach of objectivity. The definition of "works" is therefore different for scientific and non-scientific therapies. 

 

I thought the-ki part of Reiki was the Japanese version of chi, meaning "energy". And again, this is a different definition of the word to the scientific use of energy, leading to many unnecessary misunderstandings, arguments and crossed wires.

I had a conversation with a reiki teacher recently and he said a guy with one hand showed up the day of the class asking if he'd be able to participate, the teacher agreed and when recieving reiki no one noticed it was missing.

@Phil Wondering... Does the intention, health or skill of the practicioner affect the effectiveness of Reiki?

 

If the practicioner has trouble, let's say addictions or compulsions, can it negatively affect Reiki or even the reciever?

 

Or if the practicioner is doing it to impress others or seek validation?

 

Or is Reiki sort of just doing it's own thing?

 

What really is the role of the practicioner in regard to the Reiki energy?

What affects do the intentions, health, skill, effectiveness, troubles, addiction, compulsions, doings, impressing & seeking of a character of a movie have on the screen? 

What affects does a unicorn with these characteristics & properties have on reality? 

What is the reality of a movie, without characters & unicorns?

Reiki is like a vibrational river without a beginning or end. A river which doesn’t have a doer of a river. The river just is, and it is it’s nature to flow… simply, naturally, effortlessly & peacefully… intrinsically giving life to all things.

 

Thoughts of being separate from the river are like logs in the river. Do the logs affect the flow of the river? Yes & no. The water will take different paths in accordance with the logs, yet will always flow above, under or around. Just like rivers on earth, no two are the same while really there are not two. The rivers, seas, ocean, rain, fog, steam & tears… infinite paths, same water.

 

Logs inspected by the river inherently receive the light & love… the nature of the river… and are thus recognized to be the river, and therein are ‘unstuck’. Logs which obscured the flow, now aligned with & as the flow, allow an experience of momentum, or, ‘more’ flow.

 

Due to the holon nature of the spheres and the true nature which is being the spheres, All is benefitted, bettered, enhanced… simply by the allowance of the flow of the river… simply by ‘uniting’ the logs which were innocently, unknowingly & conceptually added in the first place. In truth there is just river, no logs. Just flow.
