Does reiki work? Quantum physics and reiki

One of my girlfriends asked me a tough question last weekend. We were chatting about life, goals and dreams over a bottle of organic red wine (as besties so often do) and I mentioned that I was decorating a healing room in my house to put my recently acquired reiki level 2 certification to practice. She nodded, and then asked –

“What exactly is reiki?”

Well. um. a-hem.

{Holy crap this is difficult to answer if you’ve never thought it through.}

Wikipedia offers the following:

rei·ki ˈrākē/ noun

a healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient’s body and restore physical and emotional well-being.

While that may be the basic definition of reiki, reiki is way more than that to me.

It’s easy for me to explain meridian massage, or acupuncture and herbal medicine… all my other studies can be explained with a western science spin. But reiki can come across as very out-there if you don’t already get what energy medicine is. I found myself fumbling to give her a straight answer.

Reiki is phenomenal. It deserves a non airy-fairy explanation. Doesn’t it?

As a service to the amazing results if offers, and to the unique modality that it is… I decided to figure out how I would eloquently explain it in the future. So here’s my attempt to appease my right brain and my left heart:

My Definition of Reiki and Energy Medicine

At the cellular level we are a bunch of differentiated cells that all play together. We pass oxygen and cell food to one another, and we work with the cell next door to make energy, and to heal, and grow.

When we get much smaller than the cell, we are a bunch of mostly differentiated molecules and we interact and group together in order to make those bigger cells. We get along well, and play with each other because our shapes fit well together, and our charges attract each other. (positive and negative.)

When we get tinier still, and look at the very edges of our molecule selves, we are are a bunch of atoms with electron clouds spinning and buzzing about – being generally busy repelling and charging the other atoms around us… and sometimes we move and jump and we aren’t all that differentiated any more. I mean, that cloud moves and diffuses and interacts… and it just buzzes around in a whole lot of space and it looks like it’s a part of me…

When we get smaller still, that space – that void – between electron and nucleus is tremendous. There’s a whole lot of space between my electron and the atom that it’s working with.

And this is where the panic happens.

When I get this tiny, my thoughts pass through my world like electromagnetic waves. These thoughts are like little charges, and those charges (at this size) are things. They are just as real as the other electrons and protons that inhabit this tiny world.

And that to me – is how reiki works.

Reiki is the intentional filling and recharging of that empty space within our beings. It’s the filling of the void with all the yummy healing charges that are needed to build, build, build, so that eventually the cell can heal.

The Power of Intention

I believe that our thoughts, or our intentions are actionable… even in the tiniest of fragments.

Our healing thoughts can become healing energies… when they are inserted in the space… just… so.
