When Reiki No Longer Feels Effective

After an attunement, we are promised by our teachers that the Reiki can never leave us, even if we ourselves choose to desert it. But sometimes, it can feel as if the Reiki flow isn’t as powerful as it once was or in some cases, that Reiki has left us permanently.

Here are some potential scenarios:

  • Clients comment on having powerful experiences during treatment, but the practitioner feels little or nothing
  • Self-treatment feels weak, ineffective or completely absent
  • All attempts to connect with Reiki lead to frustration and a sense of failure
  • Clients who normally respond well to treatments no longer appear to make progress
  • A once flourishing spiritual and/or psychic development has stalled and attempts to restart have all failed
  • Byosen scans are unreliable or weak

It is easy to see why this is not a widely discussed subject. The feelings of shame, disappointment, failure and the depression that can result from these feelings would be enough for anyone to ‘throw in the towel’ and give up on Reiki and try something else. After all, haven’t we been promised that Reiki would never leave us? Evidence to the contrary may make us think differently about that.

Tempting though it may be to walk away from Reiki and try some other healing modality (after all, there are many paths up the same mountain), I would place a bet that after the initial buzz of learning something new has worn off, a strikingly similar challenge of effectiveness would rise from the depths to be faced again.

Strength or Perception?

Here’s the first rub.

Has the Reiki really dropped in strength or is it just our perception of the strength of our Reiki that has changed?

The litmus test is the efficacy of your treatments. When you treat others or yourself, is the treatment producing the expected results? If it is, chances are your perception has diminished. If it’s not, chances are your Reiki has dropped in strength.

Why perceptions can change

The long and short of it is, it’s human nature. We get used to the feelings of Reiki energy, just as we get used to driving a car. Do you remember learning to drive? We consciously have to control every aspect of what we are doing and because a car is a powerful, complicated machine, we are looking for and needing feedback all the time in order to master driving it.

But within a short time, driving becomes a natural part of what we do. We take all feedback in on autopilot whilst holding a conversation or listening to music. We have anaesthetized ourselves to natural feedback.

The cure for anaesthesia

Using the driving analogy, think about the condition of a road. Most roads are relatively smooth and we don’t notice the feedback we receive through the suspension and steering wheel because it is the expected and normal, good feedback.

But if the next time we got in the car we decided to really look for and feel all the…
