The Fear of Reiki has been known to exist throughout the mainstream culture of Japan and Okinawa.
For some western Religious groups - Reiki is viewed as some kind of satanic ritual..
Most people cancel their session at the last minute due to other engagements or emergencies. However, some fail to follow through with attending their Reiki session because of something else entirely.
I have learned from admission of some of my clients that it is because of : FEAR.
What are they afraid of? I'd wonder..
Perhaps it's the ambiguity and misperceptions of Reiki in general, or maybe fear of judgement.
Or their rationale that the process doesn't work or is a waste of time..
If any of the above resonates with you, than I can assure you that fear of the unknown is understandable after all it is part of our instinctual nature to avoid what we don't understand.
Our logical mind cannot fathom the unseen. However whether or not one chooses to believe in Energy and its ability to convert, doesn't refrain it from naturally occurring.
Science proves that Energy is all around us and its convergence is happening on both a subatomic and cellular level.
However some are more keen and sensitive to the energy that is constantly circulating through all living things.
And that is what Reiki teaches, to be more mindful, more aware of what is happening within and around you.
To use your senses and take notice,
To be fully present in your journey towards healing, replenishing and maintaining balance....
So just for today, learn to acknowledge and understand what your fears are teaching you.
Also remember that fear comes in many forms but ultimately they are an obstacle or barrier that separates you from receiving your greatest gift:
