Isn’t That Interesting!

In my work as a Reiki practitioner I have seen many remarkable things occur. In this modality we are taught not to claim cures or miracles. Instead, we observe coincidences. And we are taught to say: “Isn’t that interesting!” when something out of the ordinary occurs. The reason for this is that there is no way to prove causation. This of course is true of other modalities, although some are more willing to take the credit for whatever has gone down. It is not uncommon to credit other forces - the innate healing ability of the body, Divine intervention, or strange herbal brews  . . . and the placebo effect is now receiving lots of attention.

Today is the third anniversary of the passing of my dear friend Robbie. I had first known her when she brought her severely disabled daughter to receive Reiki therapy from a group I was working with. Then we didn’t meet for a couple of years. After which she turned up wearing a headscarf. Aggressive brain tumour. The operation had been partially successful, but she had eight months to live. Did I think Reiki would help? It was certainly worth a try, and we provided Robbie (and her daughter at times) with lots and lots and lots of Reiki. She trained in all levels and used Reiki extensively on herself. There was radiotherapy, chemotherapy, and  two more operations, until the third tumour on the brainstem proved inoperable and she was brutally sent home to die by the local top notch cancer hospital. So we provided her with lots of Reiki while she calmly and lucidly faced the inevitable. The palliative care team organised a supply of morphine, but it was never used. Robbie simply went peacefully to sleep for a couple of days. We made our farewells just before she finally slipped away, laying on our Reiki hands once more and chanting Buddhist mantras. 

Yes, it’s a sad story. The miracle, or should I say coincidence? Robbie lived, loved, worked, laughed, married and grew in spiritual understanding for eight years from that first operation.
